Groundhog Day Redux

Jesse Jackson’s dog-eared calendar is marked 1963 and observes Groundhog Day ten days late.  So, with all the tedium and ostentation of the annual Gobbler’s Knob ritual, Jackson has just ventured from his burrow to again reel at concocted racial strife.  America, it seems, must endure at least … Continue reading

On The Beat With Officer O

It’s quaint, this pleasant city district where awnings shelter storefronts and each market’s sidewalk is crowded by produce bushels, where drying laundry crisscrosses cobblestone streets.  Boys in a cul-de-sac are running stickball bases while smiling Officer O’Bama offers encouragement, “Tremendous hit, Johnny!  Now keep it … Continue reading

Fiorello Obama?

Ask, and Barack Obama will certify he’s history’s sagest statesman, not merely a master of law and politics, but a science arbiter, theologian, military strategist, historian, basketball specialist, and brewer.  So mundane, in fact, does his immense intellect find Oval Office pressures that … Continue reading

It’s Howdy Doody Time For America

My childhood neighborhood was vibrant with marauders, Apaches, bank robbers, and posses of boys quick-drawing plastic revolvers to fend off those dastardly villains.  Those were days when kids took their cues from America’s global stature and John Wayne blockbusters: never did the world’s evil-doers … Continue reading

Reluctance

History proves that effective leaders display heartfelt reaction to atrocities and danger before, with cogent and well-planned strategy, they respond. With cerebral machinations and overused thesaurus does Obama react to ISIS inhumanity; he responds with visceral determination not to confront that growing evil. Through … Continue reading

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

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

Adios, San Juan

Cuban strong man Raul Castro knows advantage when he sees it and, with President Obama begging to normalize relations with the Caribbean dictatorship, Castro has grown determined to squeeze every drop out of Uncle Sam.  America, until recently, rebuked Cuba with the noble insistence that … 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
