Bureaucratic supremacy, the U.S. and the European Union


The United States have a bloated, unelected bureaucracy answerable only to unelected political appointees to whom they must “suck up” should they desire promotion and more power. It creates more laws (Federal regulations) than the Congress and then interprets them to its advantage. The … Continue reading

The European Union — a model for The United States of Obama?


Europe leads in the wrong directions. No it’s not funny, Mr. President. While watching this Pat Condell video posted nearly three years ago, consider the similarities and dissimilarities between Europe then and the United States of Obama now. The United … Continue reading

The Bundy Ranch and Our loss of freedom, Part II


There’s always more to say when our freedoms are being forfeited. Were the events at the Bundy Ranch newsworthy? Will whatever happens when the Feds return en masse be newsworthy? Is anything newsworthy that casts overreach by the Obama Government in a … Continue reading

The United States of Obama increasingly rejects freedom, domestically and internationally


As the United States of Obama allows less individual freedom, we need to reaffirm that democracy without individual freedom is tyranny. Until we reaffirm that, and refuse to accept tyranny, our “leaders” will continue to demand not only more of the same … Continue reading

Truth, lies and conspiracy theories


The Federal Government lies as a matter of policy and habit. Occasionally  “legitimate” media detect and dissect the lies, but they more often simply report them as true. The resultant “conspiracy theories” are often more believable than the Government lies … Continue reading

Bundy Ranch: the “truth” shall make you . . . ?


The reports, such as they are, from the Bundy Ranch have been confusing. The Feds have contributed to the dearth of verifiable information, suggesting that there are things it would be inconvenient for us to know. I don’t know what’s … Continue reading

The mess du jour is in the Ukraine; do messes closer to home matter?


North Korea has nukes and Iran either has them or is working diligently to get them. That’s easier now that sanctions have been diminished and Iran is “open for business.” China is becoming more aggressive and so is Russia. Yet … Continue reading

Ideology vs. reason and a constitutional crisis


Most sentient humans have ideological beliefs. When they become acceptable substitutes for rational thought they can be pernicious. Jonathan Turley, whom I consider a liberal in the old-fashioned sense and not what I refer to as a “librul,” today testified before … Continue reading

Is the world going nuts, or has it been that way for a long time?


That doesn’t matter. It gets crazier daily. Do others notice or care? Venezuelans lack food, toilet paper and other basic necessities. Violent crime is rampant. But their intensely brilliant leaders have found great solutions. To refer to Venezuela as an … Continue reading
