Reluctance

History proves that effective leaders display heartfelt reaction to atrocities and danger before, with cogent and well-planned strategy, they respond.

Fender Benders

IRS commissioner John Koskinen speaks in riddles and apparatchik gibberish.  It’s as if the head of America’s most intrusive and belligerent agency landed his post from somewhere foreign to liberty and prosperity. Warren Sapp, member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, seems … Continue reading

Return to the Road To Ruin

It would usher in doomsday, hoped Obama.  But for two years America has survived the federal sequester, that irrational mandate for arbitrary spending cuts that was devised to inflict intolerable inconvenience on the citizenry.  Layoffs and loss of critical services, the … Continue reading

Demolition Days Are Here Again

Sunglass Nation

John F. Kennedy sported Wayfarers, his appearance urbane and manly behind those dark lenses.  It’s a look the whole nation might adopt because, now that hope and change has proven itself detrimental, which American wants to show his eyes anymore? Certainly not the … Continue reading

While Obama Golfs ….

Somber reflection accompanied Holocaust survivors visiting Auschwitz.  Again their eyes took in railroad tracks once laden with human-filled cattle cars.  They overcame trepidation to once more trudge through the iron gate heralding Arbeit Macht Frei–Work Sets You Free.  But it was not … Continue reading

He’s Melting

The echoes of Paris violence still reverberate and again Muslim belligerents have murdered, this time in a sun-baked hotel on Tripoli’s coast.  They’ve brought terror to Fort Hood, too, and the Boston Marathon, Madrid’s subway, a chocolate shop in Sydney, London streets: no corner … Continue reading

Uncle Sam’s Sensitive Senate

With the irresponsibility of a bored student dozing through an insightful lecture, the Senate of the United States last week squandered effort by debating earth’s climate.  Senators took it upon themselves to neglect how our nation is crying out for a … Continue reading

That Inconvenient Truth

The overwhelming majority of Muslims, lectured Secretary of State John Kerry, do not condone the sort of violence perpetrated by a few.  His rapt audience in Davos thrived on Kerry’s faux-sagacity.  As had a previous droning speaker, former Vice President Al Gore, Kerry’s … Continue reading
