Talk about a Kool-Aid hangover!! Take your pick…
It’s all over and we can’t win, right? Have you given up fighting big government, corrupt politicians and bad laws? Come on guys, you know the saying, “when the going gets tough the tough get going”. I understand the complete let down, the disgust and anger at fellow Americans who have their heads either buried in the sand or completely out of daylight (to put it delicately). I for one refuse to give in, give up or shut up. Do I feel like I’m peddling and not getting anywhere? Sure, a lot…Continue

Sometimes it almost seems as if one day we went to bed in a world where we were proud of being American – United as a people, regardless of our political leanings or ethnic backgrounds…and woke up the next day in a completely foreign land, where divisiveness, envy and class warfare abound, and being American is something to apologize for! How…WHY?
The most frequently applied explanation lies at the feet of the NEA and their hooks in the Public Education System which began back in the…Continue
When a man surrenders the ownership of his deeds, the deeds of his ownership will be soon to follow. - Unknown Genius
There is a pathetic shadow of a creature/former friend turned radical we had the amazing foresight to nickname after a rodent some forty odd years ago, who follows my blog with the same obsessive energy and creepiness of Gollum stalking Frodo!
In fact Gollum is the picture-perfect caricature of the…Continue

The very last word’s uttered by Alec Guinness’s character Colonel Nicholson in David Lean’s Bridge on the River Kwai, as he realizes in the last instant of his life…the greatest mistake of his life. What Have I done?
I sometimes wonder if David Lean, my absolute favorite Director of all time, had a very powerful looking-glass beyond the lens of the movie camera. When I think of the essence of his three greatest films, Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor…Continue
“And, you know, all I can do is make the best arguments and mobilize the American people so that they’re responsive.”- Barack Hussein Obama from his 10/6/11 jobs speech. These are the most chilling words I have ever heard from an American President!
Do you remember the two distinct personality types as a kid growing up and observing your friends and classmates? One (A) would never say anything behind your back that he wasn’t comfortable saying to…Continue
This scene is so incredibly rich with absurd poetic hypocrisy it seems unfair to flush the obvious…but what the heck. For starters, the decision to choose the word Occupy as part of their misguided public stunt hilariously confirms their cerebral vacancy. Because sooner or later a successful occupier will arrive at the occupation…the very two words these lost souls…Continue

I don’t want to jinx us but, if the polls are any indication, the One is about to become the Was! I mean really…it’s gotten to the point where he opens his mouth and the stock market falls 300 points! If the Democrats were smart , they would lock him in the Oval Closet and throw away the key until after the election. He looks great between Trumka and Hoffa doesn’t he? Yup…a real team player!! (slipping into a dream music)
“At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized … it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds.“- President Barack Obama, January 13, 2011
“President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these sons of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong!” – Labor Leader Jimmy Hoffa, September…Continue

On the brisk morning of April 22, 2008, I gathered with a few dozen Buddhist monks & nuns from the Kadampa Meditation Center of New York on the grounds of Colgate University to protest the Dalai Lama who had come to speak to an audience of about 5,000 people. Yes, you read that passage correctly.
At that time, I had been a student of the Kadampa Foundation Program for about a year, attending regular classes at their magnificent temple in Glen Spey, just above Port Jervis…Continue

By Doug Patton,
It is no secret that government schools across the United States have become indoctrination centers for the spreading of a social gospel that is anathema to the values of the majority of American parents. Public education is largely run by union bosses and liberal school boards protecting incompetent educrats who push an agenda that has nothing to do with teaching children how to think and everything to do with teaching them what to think. Hitler, Stalin and Mao would be…

It seems like another lifetime and a bad marriage ago, but my mind drifted back as if it were yesterday. I was in the lowest of lowest places, 12 years into a marriage that should never have been and struggling with a management position I should never have taken. I was in the place where THE best blues songs come from! In fact, I…
The answer would be “YES” if you live in Wisconsin! The answer would be mostly “NO” if you live in NY! The taxpayers of Wisconsin not only survived an all out assault by their own Ruling Class and its Big Labor Comrades, they held off a National assault orchestrated from the White House!
The very survival of our country is coming down to a crystal clear line in the sand for those with the eyes to see, and the courage to choose wisely. On one side…

I was at Tea Party meeting recently. A very impressive young man who had just run for political office as a Republican in a very Democratic district had been invited to speak. He lost his race by a surprisingly narrow margin, but he gained a real insight into the minds and hearts of the people in his district.
One of the things he said that struck me the most was how he found Republicans are perceived by many of the people he talked to. We just don’t seem to care…
…in the case of 9/11, the Ft. Hood Shooter, the Time Square Bomber, the Underwear Bomber, decapitations at a UN compound, etc., we replaced the word Muslim with the word Catholic?
…a Republican President hosted as many “parties”, took as many vacations and played as many rounds of golf (60), all while telling the American People, “We need to tighten our belts.”?
…a Republican President’s Attorney General referred to a single ethnic group as…
This just in, President Barack Obama has resigned from the Presidency effective at noon today. According to sources close to the President, this historical precedent was the direct result of a spiritual visitation from none other than the nations very 1st Commander in Chief, George Washington…and others.
Apparently the President had been preparing for such a visit, and had actually been going to sleep at night with a note pad, pencil and flash light on…

How wonderfully appropriate to frame the desperate spasm of a zillion term Senator, defending public-funded DEATH while lashing out at the Tea Party as “undeserving of freedom” for DEFENDING LIFE!!!
I made Turtle Sauce Piquant for a…
I had the occasion to visit the Face Book site of an old friend recently, and I noticed a posting of someone called Taylor Mali in what turned out to be a very entertaining stand up routine called “What Teachers Make”…which he had found at moveon.org, (makes perfect sense, right?) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxsOVK4syxU The guy is right! Teachers are wonderful and often under-appreciated…which was the…
