  • Conclusion: It is just becoming visible

    The progressive liberals have almost pulled off stealing the United States. While we still have elections, we must be certain that we elect people who love this country and are not out to extract its good for their personal benefit or the benefit of their malevolent ideas.
  • Society’s degraded morals and civility
    These issues are not about guns nor forceps; they are about society’s degraded morals and civility. And they are more (uncomfortably) related to each other than most dare to think.
  • True bipartisan cooperation
    Doing some research last week, I came across a remarkable piece of history I either didn’t know or had forgotten (sometimes it is hard to tell these days). It is worth sharing. In 1947, President Harry Truman appointed the Hoover Commission. The Hoover Commission was headed by former President Herbert Hoover – a Republican – who had lost the election of 1932 to Franklin Roosevelt, Truman’s predecessor.
  • Dr. Slouchi explains black hole at the center of the Milky Way
    At the conclusion of the press conference, the administration praised the work of Dr. Slouchi and IGAG, and reported, “Now you know why we have seemed to behave so strangely for the last year and a half. We were looking out for you and protecting you from worry.”
  • Ever try to reason with someone suffering from hysteria?
    Have you ever try to reason with someone suffering from hysteria? It is impossible, isn’t it?
  • Some serious stuff
    When I was 18, like many of that age, I wanted the modern toys. That meant having a good job, which meant going to college. I did it and joined the rat race. Now, you don’t know you are joining the rat race, it kind of sneaks up on you until you are caught. It is like drugs.
  • Electricity isn’t the only solution
    The first thing we need to understand is that our choice of energy is cost, ease of use, and emotions. Notice that glaringly absent from this list is science. Energy choices have long since left science out of the equation.
  • Have we reached a tipping point on truth?
    There have been some interesting developments lately that give a faint hope that truth may swing back into fashion on the national and international levels. There is the matter of Hunter Biden’s laptop computer. It is not disinformation; it is a fact, and appropriate legal bodies have finally told us this is so.
  • Chicken or the egg – a different kind of gerrymandering
    I have been watching the congressional district gerrymandering arguments going on all over the country. It struck me, thinking about that and the housing situation I see around me – we are watching gerrymandering by home construction before our very eyes.
  • The rocky road of technology development
    The Luddites were famous for destroying steam-powered looms in the period 1811-16 in England. Their destructive actions were driven by their fear of job loss. If steam power made cloth production easier, they would lose some of their jobs, hence their source of sustenance. Today, we laugh at them. But we are no different.
  • Bullies and nuclear warheads
    Where did we fail? I think we got too comfortable, too soft, and decided we would just kick the nuclear problem down the road. It is just that the road has come to a dead end. I think I will go watch “Dr. Strangelove” one more time while I still can.
  • Isn’t it ironic?
    And now comes forth a Jew, one Volodymyr Zelenskyy, president of Ukraine, who stands for the face of good in a storm of evil. Is President Zelenskyy perfect? No, none of us are. There have even been reports of atrocities committed by Ukraine. It will take years to sort this out.
  • Woodrow Wilson, Neville Chamberlain, Bill Clinton and Joe Biden
    The hall of shame composing my title this week may be responsible for as much chaos and death as any other four people in the history of the world. This may come as a surprise to you; you may think such a list would be Lenin, Hitler, Stalin and Mao.
  • Messed up priorities
    From my experience, I would say Icahn’s beef, er, pork, is misplaced. As for people who bemoan their ability to commit suicide willy-nilly, I would say the world has reached a terrible place in its thinking and priorities when I comprehend these stories as a whole.
  • Will globalization cause a corrugated box shortage?
    Along comes the Ukraine War. Who, within NATO, is considered at least a country to be concerned about? Germany. Who outside of NATO, but right up next to Russia is a country to be concerned about? Finland. An all-out European War is going to cause many problems worldwide, there is no doubt about that.
  • The upside-down progressive world
    Less than two years ago, we watched as certain groups, behaving in ways that can only be described as anarchical, forcibly occupied cities like Portland, Ore.; Seattle, Wash. and Minneapolis, Minn. We were told that these groups had many grievances and were justified in tearing the fabric of these cities apart.
