A civic-minded 8-year old named Brandon Willmanson sent me the following short story, "Guarding The Henhouse", a parable about the current health care situation in America.  I was initially inspired by this youngster's initiative, although I must confess that I was not prepared for the ra… Read full post »

One of my "28 ATTACKS" makes a comeback!!

Some of you might recall my "28 Attacks in 28 Days" campaign initiative back in October.  (To those who are unfamiliar, a helpful summary can be found here.)  Basically, I would make up a fresh new attack on Barack Obama every day until the Election.  I was heavily criticized for my… Read full post »

SHOCKING REPORT: Lou Dobbs' Birth Certificate a FAKE!

The Birther Movement-- or BM, as it's called for short-- has gotten quite a bit of attention lately, as many small groups and individuals proclaim that President Obama has no US birth certificate.  Within the BM, there is a smaller subset of people who realize that a birth certificate actually D… Read full post »

Me & Joe say NO to a "Public Option"

I was a guest on this afternoon's Dan Dindrell show, along with Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CONN.), both of us speaking out against the idea of any "Public Option" in Health Care Reform.  Joe and I weren't "in studio", of course, but we still managed a lively three-way via telephone.

How the Bill/Joan Interview SHOULD have gone...

I have to admit that I was disappointed in Bill O'Reilly's interview with Salon's Joan Walsh.  I liked it when he yelled at her-- I always feel that Bill is at his best when yelling.  He's good at it, it comes naturally to him, and he doesn't seem as uncomfortable as… Read full post »

How I Learned To Oppose Gay Marriage

It's rare that I dip back into the archives, but the Gay Marriage issue is heating up in all sorts of unfortunate ways, and I felt it was worth re-stating my firm opposition to the prevailing trend towards legitimizing this dangerous and gathering threat to our nation.
