What’s So Special About the Capitol?

What’s So Special About the Capitol?

Ever since the January 6th Capitol riot the news media has been ceaselessly replaying the videos from that terrible day, bombarding us with the messaging that it was the worst violence we’ve seen in American history, worse than 9/11 and Pearl Harbor. We are supposed to consume this footage like novices, as if we haven’t been totally desensitized by the non-stop pillaging of American cities in 2020.  Pardon, but why should I now be outraged by violence when it was celebrated…

The Wasted Ire of Wall Street Bets

The Wasted Ire of Wall Street Bets

By now we are all familiar with the Reddit community known as Wall Street Bets that took down some of Wall Street’s biggest hedge funds last week. The “stonks” stunt was hilarious, tactfully well played and made some people a ton of money. But with small trading apps now working in tandem with the hedge funds to mitigate the risks for Wall Street, I don’t anticipate that this movement will be able to continue to injure the hedge funds with…

Vaccine Roll Out… A Numbers Game

Vaccine Roll Out… A Numbers Game

Vaccinations in the U.S. began Dec. 14 with health-care workers, and so far 22.4 million shots have been given, according to a state-by-state tally by Bloomberg and data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the last week, an average of 1.16 million doses per day were administered.   It was unrealistic to assume that a nationwide, nay worldwide, roll out of a vaccine would be obstacle or hiccup free.  But here we are – approximately 6 weeks into the Coronavirus vaccine and according to the Bloomberg we have surpassed Biden’s…

LYING – The New Coin of the Realm!

LYING – The New Coin of the Realm!

Why are there so many lies?  Or do we really live in an Alternative Universe? My father developed a euphemism to describe the lies permeating our social consciousness – “Looney Tunes” – pronounced “Loooonia Tuunes.”  The lies cover a broad landscape from outright silly to maliciously evil.  Here are just a few. Silly You can buy CARBON FREE Sugar because Carbon and Carbon Dioxide is killing the earth – it is poison.  Utter lunacy.  But here is the ad from Domino Sugar. Any high school…

It’s All About the Narrative

It’s All About the Narrative

To claim that today’s news stories are more narrative than reporting is hardly a revelation.  Saunter through news sources – television, internet, your favorite podcast, or from your Facebook friends, and you will see different narratives crafted around the same facts.  The narratives quote facts, real facts, but reach contradictory conclusions.  As you read through today’s news stories, it pays to be attentive to the underlying narrative the reporter or the network is telling you.   For example, it can be alleged that the…

Which America Do You Want To Live In?

Which America Do You Want To Live In?

Do you want to live in the America where law and order is preserved or do you want to live in the America where anarchy ensues? Do you want to live in the America where police are revered or the America where dead cops are celebrated? Do you want to live in a safe America where rioters and looters are prosecuted? Or do you want to live in the America where violent criminals are allowed to roam free? Do you want to live…

Gov. Cuomo Becomes Pro-Life in a Foxhole

Gov. Cuomo Becomes Pro-Life in a Foxhole

As the United States braces for the apex of the CHINESE Covid19 outbreak, all eyes are on New York as the state leads the nation in infections and deaths. There is great concern regarding the amount of medical supplies, particularly that of ventilators. Currently equipped with nearly 12,000 ventilators, Governor Cuomo has requested more ventilators from the federal government (which has already supplied New York State with 400).  While not yet at full capacity, the governor’s preference for over-preparedness should be appreciated by…

The Green Road to Serfdom… My Apologies Mr Hayek

The Green Road to Serfdom… My Apologies Mr Hayek

With over two dozen Democratic presidential candidates promising voters a surfeit of free stuff; college, health care, reparations, etc., one candidate is trying to break away from the pack by not just offering free stuff but also proposing an expensive and invasive government program that makes the New Deal look cost-effective. The candidate is Washington state governor Jay Inslee (don’t worry, I’ve never heard of him either.)  Governor Inslee’s Evergreen Economy Plan is essentially a more thorough and detailed version of…

Dear Conservatives, Republicans Will Not Save You

Dear Conservatives, Republicans Will Not Save You

Last week, Facebook and Instagram officially banned Alex Jones, Infowars, Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, and Louis Farrakhan. Not only are these individuals restricted from using the sites, but even current, authorized users are forbidden from sharing their work, lest they be banned as well. It is the most Orwellian overreach that everyone knew was eventually coming… which is why conservatives shouldn’t feign outrage.  We have known for a long time that this was going to happen. Thanks…

A Tale Of Two Countries

A Tale Of Two Countries

  Last week marked a pivotal point in American politics. The Left’s failing effort to nail Judge Brett Kavanaugh on intentionally vague and deliberately unprovable rape accusations made it clear that there is no deceitful tactic they won’t use to resist Republicans. Whatever conniving means they can use, they will. Your family, your job, your children, and your character are all collateral damage in their fight for power. This is a historic new low. Certainly, never in my lifetime have…
