Some nagging questions that don’t get asked! About one third of Americans have refused to get the Covid-19 “vaccination.” Are they all looney tunes wrapped in a conspiracy bubble, or have they—just perhaps, you know—thought about the virus and concluded its safer to get natural immunity from the virus instead of temporary (forever requiring “booster) […]

The king is dead!
Hurray and Hallelujah! This photograph was taken of Franklin Delano Roosevelt at his Warm Springs, Georgia home by Nicholas Robbins. The next day, April 12, 1945, Roosevelt did the world a favor by dying. Clearly, for over a year and a half Roosevelt was a dying man who had no business continuing to function as […]
May he rot in hell
Few people defined the horror of the 20th century more than Joseph Stalin. We can’t do anything to change the mass graveyards he created, but what we can do is celebrate his death on March 5, 1953. So, huzzah, the monster is dead, though it took him far too long to do us that courtesy. […]
Goose Stepping America!
What can one say about Biden’s inaugural address? Nothing I have seen analyzed it better than what was written 100 years ago about Warren Harding’s inaugural speech: It was “an army of pompous phrases marching across the landscape in search of an idea.” Pat Buchanan graciously excused it as “the most confusing, contradictory and incoherent […]
We’re NOT All In This Together!
Don’t you just love the platitudes spewing from so many? One that galls me is the mantra: “We’re all in this together.” It follows closely on the heels of: Wear your mask and social distance–as though there is anything social about distancing! You meet an old friend and then stand six feet apart to share […]
Governor flap jaw
Over the years I have been exposed to politicians who don’t know when to shut up–windbags who are so full of themselves that they think everyone wants to be entertained by them. I recall an interview I conducted as a young reporter in Crookston, Minnesota. Word leaked out that Hubert Humphrey was visiting the fair […]
Humor on the prairie
Sick of the government mandate that we hide in our houses and hankering for a road trip, my wife and I recently took a trip to Montana and Idaho via North Dakota. It was marvelous to get away and to see some magnificent scenery and meet fine people. Early in our trip as we approached […]
Insanity unleashed: the plague of “wokeness!”
Why is it impossible to avoid holier than thou apostles wearing halos and continually pointing to their saintliness as symbols of “wokeness?” The crowd has become a scourge to life. As George Orwell wrote they’re “like idiots staring over an asylum wall.” Examples bombard us daily from all manner of sources. One that arrived in […]
A Media-Created Crisis
The more I see of the “news,” the sicker I grow of it. From national news networks to the local folks, it’s all the same old story about the coronavirus problem in the United States. People are dying (the only story for weeks on end, complete with photos of body bags and ventilators and panic […]
Hurray for Thomas Massie!
It is long past the time when the political primadonnas in Washington have been called out for their antics. Thomas Massie, the Kentucky congressman, did it when he demanded members of the House of Representatives cast a recorded vote on the Coronavirus spending legislation. The wailing that accompanied his call for a recorded vote sounded […]
