Waiting for Barack Obama

(0) Comments | Posted May 27, 2011 | 4:03 PM

When I voted for Barack Hussein Obama in 2008, I believed he was ideally situated to speak truth to the Muslim world regarding its intolerance of infidels, apostates, and unbelievers.

(13) Comments | Posted January 24, 2011 | 3:23 PM

In 2010, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, answering a direct question, told a national TV audience, "We are on Sarah Palin's targeted list, but the way that she has it depicted has the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they have to realize that there are...

(25) Comments | Posted November 3, 2010 | 4:20 PM

Ken Buck lost. So did Tom Tancredo, but that one is easy to understand. When you win, you can move forward with little introspection. When you lose by a close margin, you have to second guess everything.

Here are my top ten reasons why Ken Buck lost:

Tancredo, Buck and Fallon for This Colorado Independent

How are you going to judge a fight where one of the competitors only dances and never punches? I score it for the man who is engaged and competing.

What if there is a fight and one side keeps throwing exceptionally low blows? At a certain point, that kind...

Hick and Tanc and Taxes

(1) Comments | Posted September 20, 2010 | 4:45 PM

It is not like John Hickenlooper needs a new nickname. Denver's Mayor seems to like the moniker Hick, and he has no doubt heard less flattering variations on his name. How about Teflon John Hickenlooper as a back-up? Like the Gipper, nothing seems to stick on the Denver Mayor.

Ayn Rand, born a Jew, escaped Russian anti-Semitism and communism in 1926 when she first viewed the Statue of Liberty and made it to the USA. Rand treasured New York skyscrapers and saw them as symbols of the American freedom and capitalism she coveted.

For non-scientists, this massive oil spill contains lots of intellectual complications.  Apparently, scientists are not doing a whole lot better.  Neither are engineers.  Nor are lawyers. 

A caller to our Caplis and Silverman radio show ripped all attorneys on our Wednesday show.  He asked...

Innovative American publisher Ben Franklin wrote hundreds of years ago that publishing gossip, backbiting and censure "is frequently the means of preventing powerful, politic, ill-designing men from growing too popular. All-examining Censure, with her hundred eyes and thousand tongues,...

Political correctness can be a killer. Normally, "correct" means "truth." Add in politics and the truth gets twisted. Consider the askew analytical abilities of some political and media leaders when it comes to determining if Major Nidal Hasan's motivation was Jihad. Smart journalists write detailed and "balanced"...

We have another Colorado classic here. This is the greatest American media hoax since John Mark Karr deceived the Boulder DA and the media about what happened to another Colorado six year old.
