God Made Me Do It

This from a communication from Faithful America to, presumably, the fellow faithful.

“Michigan could be poised to pass a new "religious freedom" bill that would allow individuals and businesses to discriminate against whoever they wish, so long as they claim a religious motivation.”

Obama's Last Clear Chance

Obama’s Last Clear Chance at Legacy

So far, it’s all negative. Obamacare is a bust. The reputation of the U.S. in the international community, once preeminent, is in shambles. The economy fails to deliver to the working man because Obama is strangling its engines. And race relations, whi… Read full post »

Obama and Ferguson

Johnny Finally Put Beans in His Nose

After a chorus of pious pleas for restraint, thugs, thieves, and arsonists not known for their sensitivity to such injunctions, did a pretty good job of destroying the property of many businesses in Ferguson, Missouri.

The height of hypocrisy was reached today… Read full post »

Classic Obama

Classic Obama

Obama’s Sunday TV interview presented two attributes of the man that are becoming all too familiar to the American public, which has pretty much written him off as a political force of any consequence or consistency.

His twin statements that Hillary would be a “formidable&… Read full post »

Obama Dissed by Media

Presidential Snub by TV Networks

The failure of CBS, ABC, and NBC to carry Obama’s brief address on immigration can be explained very easily.  After the midterm election, Obama is the lamest of lame ducks whose basic credibility has been so severely compromised by inconsistency and outrig… Read full post »

Obama and Cosby

Obama and Cosby—Two Legacies in Big Trouble

Bill Cosby is being accused of drug rape by several women, and on the basis of the accusations alone, major companies are cancelling shows and doing other things that will surely and severely prejudice the iconic comedian and his legacy.

Legacy is… Read full post »

Obama the Boy King

Time To Wake Up the Boy King

When a coddled child becomes spoiled to the point of doing serious damage to the furniture, it’s time to draw the line.

Like any spoiled child, Barack Obama is not entirely to blame for his belief that the world is not only… Read full post »

America's Suicide

My review of an interesting new book is reprinted below. Maybe it will help some our traditional OS contributors get through the whipping they took at the polls last week:

Obama--The Morning After

While readily conceding that Rome cannot be remade in a day, even an election one, the resounding blow dealt yesterday to Obama and his administration is remarkable and incredibly promising for the future of the nation.

Obama was elected, and reelected, due to the feverish efforts of an extraordinar… Read full post »

OBAMA and ebola

OBAMA and ebola

Obama was recently “caught” on camera hugging former, but now cured Ebola patient, who contracted the disease in the course of caring for a fellow who traveled to the U.S. without restriction from West Africa.

Secret Service and the CDC

Secret Service and Center for Disease Control

These two agencies are surely among the most revered over the years as examples of government at its best. However, recent developments attest that the general pall of incompetence and lack of foresight, which has fallen over the Obama administration sin… Read full post »

Reparations to Blacks At Last!

Reparations at Last! Thanks, Mark!

It is reported that Mark Zuckerberg and his wife have contributed mucho-millions to the CDC to assist in the struggle against Ebola.

Considering that MZ is white and almost all Ebola victims are black, one might be tempted to interpret this much-more-than-a-gestur… Read full post »

No Blame Obama

The Blame Game Spreads

It’s no secret that the hallmark of the Obama Administration is a refusal to confess personal error and to blame the mess the country has found itself in during his tenure on anyone he can find. The most recent example was his incredible use of “they”… Read full post »

Why Obama Ignores His Advisors

Obama’s Advisors—A Solved Mystery

Obama has been widely criticized for ignoring his advisors. This has been attributed to his egotistical belief in his own intellectual superiority. (The fact that this intellectual superiority has yet to be demonstrated is beside the point of this post.)… Read full post »

New York Post and the Clintons

God, as  well as other Osmond observers, knows, I'm no fan of Bill and Hillary Clinton, particularly the latter, but I was sickened by the tastelessness of the now famous New York Post front page.

I have an easy test on matters like this. If something is inspiringly comic, e.g. Stevie… Read full post »

Holder Loses His Grip

Holder Loses His Grip

The resignation of Eric Holder as U.S. Attorney General is indeed good news. This one-issue ideologue has been beset with scandal after scandal and the country is well rid of him at long last. But every silver cloud has its onyx linings, and before Holder has… Read full post »

Obama Swallows Three Bitter Pills

Obama just didn’t seem quite himself this morning as he stood in front of the helicopter that was to whisk him off to the United Nations in New York. His speech was shorter than any I can recall and was delivered with all the animation… Read full post »

Ayn Rand to the Rescue

Ayn Rand to the Rescue

Two outrages that are rightfully receiving a lot of attention lately are the ISIS beheadings and the death and injury of Palestinians in Gaza. The former atrocity is in retaliation for air strikes which are killing civilians in Iraq; the latter, a response to rockets… Read full post »

Obama's Concept of Transparancy

Obama’s Dangerous Concept of Transparency

It seems that tomorrow night (9/10), the eve of the World Trade Center and Benghazi anniversaries, Barack Obama is going to deliver yet another speech presumably designed to harmonize his earlier wafflings on the critical threats posed by ISIS.

Obama at the Border? Who Cares!

Immigration 101

This course has two parts.

First, anyone who hires a person who is not in the U.S. legally should face severe fines and penalties. An applicant for employment should be required to present proof of legal status.

Second, those seeking to enter the U.S. should be… Read full post »

Brazil’s World Cup—Not Totally Empty

Brazil awakened on Wednesday with an unwelcome awareness that Tuesday was not a nightmare but, indeed, its very real bad news day. The whole country is in a state of acute depression. It's very sad to see.

Soccer Punched Left and Right

Soccer Punched Left and Right

As if there were not enough issues about which to disagree, the left and the right have come up with a jointly held theory about the increasing popularity about soccer/football in the United States. Having agreed on the theory, the left and right then return… Read full post »
