NRA employing "Henny Penny" scare tactics

The November 2014 issue of "The American Rifleman" displays side-by-side photos of the president and the former mayor of NYC, accompanied by some unflattering commentary. For anyone who lived through the World War II, the implication is hauntingly ominous — and odious.

Is clean air so much to ask?

Finally, fringe environmental groups taken to task. Those dastardly organizations that put planet before pocketbook have no place in a self-serving, utilitarian world. All the nonsense concerning clean air and water and hope for a decent future is distracting the nation from unrestricted pur…

GOP just ain't what it used to be

When Ike was president, I was a proud Republican — and I hung tough when Nixon failed to willingly come clean. But when an administration — virtually all of whom had avoided combat participation during the Vietnam War — found fault with John Kerry for his service at the front, that's when I …

Why doesn't Canada build its own refinery?

With all the difficulties, not the least being wholly reasonable controversy, why has Canada proposed installing a pipeline to carry its oil across the United States, from its northern border to south as far as the Louisiana gulf at a cost of $5 billion, when they could use that money to con…

All workers deserve to earn a living wage

In a country that can lavish tens of millions of dollars on CEOs who bankrupt companies, it would seem that we are obliged to pay living wages to employees who do responsible, necessary jobs.

Obama blamed for what we all want

Obama has been called a liar by some. Is he? Has he lied to embroil us in a war that got thousands killed and injured as some have done? Actually, he's striven to extricate us from wars. Has he lied concerning a plan to expand medical coverage for all? Questionable, but if so it was motivate…

Let's give Obamacare a chance

From day one that Obama was elected, he's been opposed concerning virtually everything he's done or suggested. Whether the resistance is politically or racially motivated — or a combination of those factors — it's simply not practical or efficient to continue with endless and pointless confl…

Global warming critics are in denial

Hollywood has been adept at producing scary movies such as "King Kong," "Dracula," "Frankenstein," etc., during the 1930s and 1940s, and the more recent sci-fi jawdroppers "2012," "Pacific Rim," "World War Z," "A Day at Congress," etc.

Embassy killings require thorough investigation

Four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador, were murdered at our embassy in Libya under questionable circumstances. A full and thorough investigation into exactly what happened there is required with anyone responsible for mistakes and the killings being identified and brought to justice.

Nobody's exclusive or excepted in the U.S.

Candidate Romney was of the opinion that he couldn’t win the votes of the 47 percent of the people who are reliant on the government. If fate allowed, it’s likely that a sizable number of that “47 percent” would opt for his situation of having been born into wealth and knowing financial abun…

Neither Romney nor Obama up for task at hand

Through extraordinary measures to shore up financial institutions and major businesses in 2008, we averted a disaster that would have collapsed our economy — but we only staved it off. The Great Depression is cited as "the" financial catastrophe, but we now have a world with three times the …

Politically labeling groups 'shooting oneself in the foot'

It's frequently complained that the educators at universities and colleges are too "liberal." Institutions of higher learning make concerted efforts to hire individuals who are the most qualified to teach others: they must be intelligent, even highly intelligent. It implies that liberal equa…

Obama deserves another term

Some have faulted the president for marking one year since Osama bin Laden was eliminated as a threat by our Navy Seals, claiming the commemoration to be politics. The same people would be castigating him had the bin Laden raid been unsuccessful. Like Ike on D-Day, someone always has to lay …

Limbaugh insignificant in scheme of things

Rush Limbaugh made comments that created quite a stir. Limbaugh has an audience that he knows quite well; he's aware of what that audience wants to hear so that's what he tells them — but it seems that this past week he miscalculated. No one's perfect.

Imagine a world of limited campaigning

For the next year I'll be screening my telephone messages because candidates for office are already calling for donations to their campaigns. That translates to people contacting me on the private phone that I pay for to request money. We sign up to have telemarketers prohibited from harassi…
