Wall off Canada? Seriously?

  I’ve never seen those houses myself but I’ve heard about them. I understand some border homes are partly in Canada and partly in America. The living room might be in Canada and the bedrooms in America, for example. So what does Scott Walker (above) propose to do about those houses? Build a wall right through them? […]

Sex, Lies and Videotape

  They say the camera doesn’t lie but you know the people using cameras can and do. Especially video sleuths. They edit those tapes to make a case, and often the fraud goes undiscovered until it’s too late to undo the harm that’s been done. Remember the ACORN “scandal”? Back in 2009, a sneaky “reporter” posed […]

Too Sad for Words

  There’s nothing I can add to the outpouring of sorrow following that senseless shooting in Virginia. I know I should say something – if only to acknowledge the horror of it. But what? What do you say when two young lives are snuffed out like that? When two innocents going about their daily chores are […]

Is the Grass Really Greener?

  What does  the incredibly popular Ashley Madison web site (only three zip codes in all of America have no residents on the site) have in common with the Trans Pacific Trade Partnership?  I suggest it’s the age-old allure of distant pastures, the notion that the grass is greener beyond the horizon. The people who decide such […]

Jamaica’s Double Whammy

  Of course you know that Usain Bolt beat that mouthy Justin Gatlin in China on Sunday. But did you know Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce made history on Monday? If there’s one thing Jamaicans can do – and do superbly – it’s sprint. If I had been born in America or Canada, I might have been considered a sprinter. […]

Hang on Sloopy!

  No, don’t sell your stocks. It’s not the end of the world as we know it. Ron Paul does not know anything you do not. This morning’s global market collapse is probably just another big scare engineered to create opportunities for insiders to make huge fortunes. I know. I know. You’re shaking in your boots. […]

A New Conspiracy Theory

  Americans (and Jamaicans and Canadians and everyone else) seem to love conspiracy theories, so I have come up with a juicy one that I will share with you today. I suspect Donald Trump is a plant. A Democrat in Republican clothing. A Trojan horse. Imagine this scenario. Bill Clinton phones his old buddy Donald […]

Stewart as Moderator! Yes!

Every so often an email shows up in my in basket asking me to sign a petition for some worthy cause. But I did not get this one. And I’m pouting. Initiated by Change.org, it asks the Commission on Presidential Debates to select Jon Stewart as a moderator for one of the 2016 Presidential Debates. According to an […]

Caught in the Act

  What surprises me most about the Ashley Maddison scandal is the cost of signing up for that promised affair. According to a report by Tony Maglio in The Wrap, (former) TV  reality star Josh Duggar apparently paid $986.76 for two accounts on the philanderers’ site. At those prices, illicit sex is only for the well […]
