A Republic, Where a Man Can Walk Free, Drunk or Sober; An Homage

In the 1960 film "The Alamo" John Wayne, playing Davy Crockett,  made this speech: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJIztvOwQ9M "Republic, I like the sound of the word. It means people can  live free, come and  go, buy or sell, drunk or sober, however they choose." Every once in a while I like to turn my thoughts to those who took that term "republic" literally, by refusing ... Read More

Is ISIS Underwriting the “Clock Kid” Ahmed’s lawsuit against Irving, Texas?

Obama is Coming Undone

I didn't title this as a question. Cracking up, Going 'round the Bend, Slipping into Madness, are just a few of the thoughts running through many Americans' minds these days. My only thought is "Finally it's becoming apparent." Over the years, Lady Penguin has erected a strong psychological profile of Barack Obama, in part based on his background as spoiled ... Read More

The Campus As Re-Education Camp …..

Obamacare: The Blue State Slush Fund

Obamacare is dying on the vine with the American taxpayers constantly being asked to water the dead plant. First, the government wasted over $5 billion establishing state health care exchanges.  They became cesspools of fraud and waste.  In Oregon, for example, $300 million was spent on a campaign to get Cover Oregon up and running.  When things got ...

Podcast: The Colorado Debate- The GOP Learns How To Mambo The Media

Maybe it's the influence of Donald Trump and his media savvy (The Art Of The Deal!), or maybe the media cartel is just collapsing under the weight of its own hubris, but the recent Colorado debate was a stunning example of pushback by the candidates. It was a display of moxie and smarts quite in ... Read More
