The Constitution is not a Plaything

April 2, 2017

I have written quite a bit about how liberal progressives view the Constitution as a living, breathing document. Indeed, the Constitution is a living, breathing document, but not in the way liberals want it to live and breathe. To wit, recently U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (regrettably, my senator from California), criticized U.S. Supreme Court nominee […]

When Making a Moral Argument Against Someone Else, Don’t Misrepresent Their Views

March 28, 2017

One of the most interesting things to me about liberal progressives is that when they are making a moral argument, they will, with a straight face, intentionally lie about the actual position of those whom they oppose. For example, Gil Garcetti, mayor of Los Angeles, was speaking of being a sanctuary city today, and how morally […]

Senator Dianne Feinstein and Ideological Judges: Be Careful What You Wish For

March 21, 2017

I wanted to provide a little commentary about how Democrats are handling the Neil Gorsuch confirmation for U.S. Supreme Court justice, and ask my fair-minded liberal friends to consider just how bad this is and why they should not support this type of behavior from elected leaders when it comes to Supreme Court justice confirmations. […]

Smaller Government is Best for Everyone, Including Liberals

March 20, 2017

So Donald Trump has proposed his budget, which has liberals apoplectic about the cuts to federal government agency and programs he is proposing. To this I would ask liberals, why are you so keen on a huge, expansive, federal government getting involved in virtually all aspects of American life? There are a number of things Trump […]

HBO “VICE” on Climate Change: They’re Right and You’re a Bad Person

March 4, 2017

Tonight I watched an episode of the HBO news program “VICE” on Syria and climate change. For those who don’t have HBO, Bill Maher is the executive producer. So that should tell you immediately their reporting is going to have a far-left liberal progressive slant. Now this post is not to argue the merits of […]

The Fake News “Muslim Ban” That Isn’t

January 29, 2017

On Friday, President Trump signed an executive order that, among other things regarding our refugee program, bars people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from traveling to the U.S. temporarily for at least the next 90 days until the U.S. can develop better vetting procedures for people from these countries. Yet this is being […]

Congressman John Lewis: A Warrior Whose Time Has Come and Gone

January 15, 2017

We have all seen those situations, particularly in professional sports, where a great warrior continues to play well beyond his prime and becomes more of a liability than an asset to the team. But that player is allowed to continue due to past glory and fan appreciation. It’s a hard thing to see someone in […]

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to You!

December 25, 2016

A couple of days ago, I was listening to a discussion on either Fox News or Fox Business about holiday greetings while driving back to Southern California from Carmel. Particularly, the discussion was about whether to say “Merry Christmas” or not. Well someone did eventually say Merry Christmas on the show. Jessica Tarloff, a Democratic […]

Transgender Bathroom Laws: A Return to Jim Crow?

December 18, 2016

On a bike ride the other day, I got into a discussion with a fellow rider about some of the transgender bathroom laws and policies that have been in the news as of late. My friend felt that allowing people to use a bathroom based on their gender identity as opposed to their biological gender […]

Leveling the “Hater” or “Bigot” Charge: The Ultimate Conversation Stopper

December 10, 2016

In the wake of Donald Trump’s victory as the next President of the United States, liberals are up in arms about losing the social “gains” they made under eight years of liberal progressive Obama rule. They will no longer have the imprimatur of the Obama administration to force all manner of social engineering on the […]
