Life Happens

In the old days, when even a cold could be deadly, it was only polite to stay home. In a Wuhan virus time, we’re going to see a return to those manners. When I was little, my mother often kept me home from school. Over the years, I’ve assumed this [Read More]

This so-called ‘new normal’ had better not be the permanent ‘normal’

In 1920, Warren G. Harding’s campaign slogan was “a return to normalcy.” He won. Perhaps that ought to be Trump’s new slogan: “Make America Normal Again.” One of the ickiest phrases around lately is the “new normal.” We’re told by leftist politicos and a thousand commercials that we’re in the [Read More]

For Passover this year, China will take Pharaoh’s role

The Passover story provides us with deep insights into the nature of tyranny. This year, China’s tyranny is the subject of my annual Passover post. For roughly 3,500 years, Jews have been telling and retelling the story of Passover — which is also the story of the world’s first revolt [Read More]

Trump has freedom to act
Donald Trump

Thanks to Democrats, Trump is unchained and has freedom to act

Democrats think they’ve outsmarted Trump by saying everything he’s done is bad. They’ve done the opposite, though. Trump is now free to act as he sees fit. Democrats, both inside and outside of the media, are feeling pretty pleased with themselves. As far as they’re concerned, they’ve got Trump locked [Read More]

It was inevitable that socialized medicine gave up on the elderly with COVID-19

It’s no surprise that socialized medicine countries stopped treating their old people. Socialized medicine rations care even when there’s not an emergency. I was talking to a friend in Spain who has taken his 88-year-old mother into his home. His mother had previously been living in a retirement community near [Read More]
