I live in the SF Bay Area, retired from a career working for the State of California. I am an avid tennis player and volunteer in this area within my community. Although I tend to lean right in my politics, I keep an open mind about everything and can be persuaded by a better argument.

Future Leaders Not Into That “America” Thing

There is much to be happy about today. Another banner day for the stock market (ain’t paper wealth grand?), we are not at war with Russia (yet), and here in the Bay Area it is raining. Maybe that Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride that the country is on to self immolate with it’s economy is slowing down a bit. And then there is this;

OK, maybe it is bunker time.

Here’s the thing, most American’s really … Read more

Do I Get A Free T Shirt With That?

Me being a big Free Market guy, I’m in favor of just about anything where supply meets demand, contract killing? Hey, if the guy deserves it who am I to judge? Exchanging labor or a service for money, the linchpin of societal existence. And most of the time when governments get in the middle of these transactions, it has little to do with societal norms or inflaming delicate sensibilities, but mostly because they want their … Read more

What!! No Pickles?

Doing a Google search the other day I was reminded that March is Women’s History Month, thank God we have Google to remind us of our social obligations as penance for our past sins. But clearly more delineation is needed, turf needs to be carved out, demarcated for emphasis. For instance, the first week of March could be Man Hating Lesbian Week, the next Fat Chick Week, and the next could be for progressive white … Read more

The Nobel Factor Ain’t What It Used To Be

Liberals hate contests, self esteem issues and all that, trophies for everyone. Social justice demands that the smart students share their grades with the IQ challenged, that America shares it’s wealth with poorer nations, and the rich get fleeced on their taxes, balancing out the ledger with those lacking the requisite industry or motivation.

Obama himself eschews rankings, a world citizen is only as good as the rest of the world citizens, one podium supporting … Read more

Equal Justice? Don’t Make Me Laugh

Is there a greater dog whistle for progressives (and the MSM, their enabling lap dogs) than hate crimes? It matters not whether an actual hate crime was committed, or that the victim themselves perpetrated the hate crime hoax, nope, racism is racism, just because you can’t see it does not mean it isn’t there;

Last month racist writing on a dormitory door shook Grand Valley State University near Detroit in Michigan.

Watch that nauseating … Read more

Oh, To Be A Fly On The Wall

There have been many despicable all together repulsive total pieces of garbage masquerading as human beings that have walked the earth. But in contemporary times, few have disgusted more folks than Fred Phelps, well, he is no more;

The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., the fiery founder of a small Kansas church who drew international condemnation for outrageous and hate-filled protests that blamed almost everything, including the deaths of AIDS victims and U.S. soldiers, on

NASA Has It’s Head In The Clouds

Apparently there are not enough stars to gaze at it or space to explore. Those wacky scientists, not the least bit concerned that their days might be numbered and they might have to go out and get real jobs, have decided to go into the socio-economic business, and their progressive slip is showing;

Few think Western civilization is on the brink of collapse—but it’s also doubtful the Romans and Mesopotamians saw their own demise

That Bastard Plays Rough

Not to be out done by dopey ban lists (seriously Mr. President, is that all you got?), Vlad has decided to have a list of his own;

Putin is set to respond to Obama’s sanctions of Russian officials with his own list. Several U.S. Senators and officials will be banned from visiting Russia, including Sen. Dick Durbin.
Putin is expected to release his retaliation list as early as Tuesday and while the final

She Gets It

Time for another edition of video Monday.

Youthful impetuosity, the pendulum is always in motion, and swings violently. But love can turn to hate on a dime, and coolness is never permanent.

It is easy to scratch your head ponder how easily the youth of America got snookered. The adults knew there was nothing there, that Obama was a neophyte empty suit who had neither the experience or the personal courage to take the next … Read more

Who Is The Dumbest Person With His Own Show?

Hint: He is probably on MSNBC

It is an interesting question to pose. Ass backwards ideology, misguided white guilt, bleeding heart progressivism, none of these by themselves qualify,wrongheaded as they are. Dumb is dumb, and like porn with the Supreme Court, we all know it when we see it. Some tells easily identified; a vocabulary that could fit in a shoebox, someone bereft of an original thought or concept, someone who can’t read, even a … Read more
