What I Did Not Know

  I came across a line in a story this morning that sent shivers down my spine. It wasn’t about imminent nuclear war, although that’s scary enough. And it wasn’t about Trump. It was about a secret organization named League of the South. The story was about  a left-wing group called Antifa (which in my […]

Name Calling Doesn’t Help

  I’m being called a “left-wing nut” and a “Communist” by readers who don’t agree with some of my blogs. But I am neither. I wouldn’t want to live in a Communist country. I think Communism is inhumane and misguided. And I may be a “nut,” but my politics, while certainly progressive, are far from […]

Father Knows Best? Still?

Muslims are not the only ones who believe in male dominance. Apparently Republicans do, too. In the new Congress, only one female lawmaker has been named to chair a House committee. And that lone woman, Michigander Candice Miller, heads a committee you might expect to be in feminine hands –  House Administration.

What’s “News,” Anyway?

I spent most of my working life in the news game and I thought I had a fairly good “nose for news.” But as I scan the “news” on the web this morning I wonder. Surely it should be news if “10 to 30 million” protesters are swarming in Washington DC and at least as many gathering […]

White RageTearing America Apart

The mightiest nation in the world has been brought to its knees by a small group of activists enraged by changes taking place in the world. The Nazis couldn’t do it. The Soviets couldn’t do it. But a few dozen members of the House of Representatives did it. Naturally, everyone is spinning the coup to […]

Sarah Palin Joins Tancredo in the Tea Party’s White Revolution

I’ve been saying it all along: The “Tea Party” movement and the summer’s town hall eruptions are symptoms of a racist revolt in America. All those other complaints – about the national debt, Socialism and big government – and whatever – are merely pretexts. Tom Tancredo, a former congressman from Colorado and failed candidate for […]
