George Washington warned us – unfortunately we didn’t listen.

There is no better way to honor President George Washington during President’s Day week than reading his Farewell Address.  It should be required reading in high schools and colleges because it contains many important warnings to future generations.   Here are what I consider to be the most important passages.

Joe Biden is a Fraud

The conventional wisdom holds that Joe Biden would be the most formidable opponent for Donald Trump. The problem with conventional wisdom—as evidenced by the recent failure of Hillary Clinton as the anointed one—is that it’s often wrong. Many of the Democrat candidates are frauds. But Biden has so much baggage I hope he runs. He … Continue reading Joe Biden is a Fraud

Make America Nuclear Again

Plenty of controversy is swirling about the Green New Deal. While I view the upcoming vote as a pure shame measure by Republicans, I think they also are missing an opportunity for nuclear energy deregulation. I watched with sadness as the Fort Calhoun nuclear plant in Omaha, Nebraska closed, the victim of yet another overreach … Continue reading Make America Nuclear Again

Now that two black Nigerians known to Jussie Smollet have been arrested in connection to his claims concerning an attack and some people might question why actor Jussie Smollett would think he would be able to get away with treating this supposed "incident" as a hate crime by Trump supporters without it being exposed as … Continue reading Non Tweets 2/16 Why Smollet wasn’t afraid, Pelosi & Guns, No Lincolns on the left, Voting against Weld & Kaepernick vs Brady

Non Tweets Under the Fedora 2/15: Read the Bill, Crumbs, Tom Hagen Math, Three Catchers and more Jamie Shupe

The Budget deal bill dropped yesterday all 1159 pages of it that the congress is expected to pass in order to see what's in it. That's about as Pelosi as it gets and is considered by her a feature not a bug.

The Green New Deal will be a winning issue for Republicans

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is proof of the radical lurch to the left the Democratic Party has taken.  If the Republicans in Congress can handle the messaging properly, attacking it will greatly enhance the Republican’s chances of retaking the House of Representatives. Educating others online about what is contained in the remarkably Marxist proposal … Continue reading The Green New Deal will be a winning issue for Republicans

John Cleese tells the truth about Radical Islam

One of the things about Monty Python in general and all of the Pythons in particular that I've always enjoyed is that they have no sacred cows and were always ready to offend and make fun of anyone. The Pythons maintain the right to offend as sacred and have defended it publicly. Which leads us … Continue reading John Cleese tells the truth about Radical Islam

In the Days when Massachusetts Men were Sane

Yesterday at work I was telling a new hire from the Cape Verde Islands who just emigrated to here that Massachusetts was not sane anymore, it used to be when I was younger but was no longer. He seemed rather shocked by my statement. If you want to see a great example of this I … Continue reading In the Days when Massachusetts Men were Sane

Bravo Sierra and Paying Attention

by baldilocks Earlier today I said this: It was in reference to Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) expounding on her experiences with weed, Tupac, Snoop, and time travel, but I consider it a timeless aphorism -- especially when we're talking about ideologues pandering to a desired constituency. Unskilled pandering happens all the time with politicians from … Continue reading Bravo Sierra and Paying Attention
