Just for the record . . .

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

A quick Internet search shows The New York Times, CNN — most of the usual suspects — trumpeting that Democrat and former federal drug prosecutor Conor Lamb (campaigning as a gun-loving conservative) won an “upset victory” (by 627 votes, out of more than 200,000 votes cast) over state legislator Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional […]

There’s plenty we could do about mass shootings

Monday, March 12th, 2018

There was a school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Feb. 14. (Former?) student Nikolas de Jesus Cruz (who was reportedly a subject of bullying there) used a .223-caliber, one-shot-per-trigger-pull rifle (not an “automatic weapon” as claimed by Democratic Florida Sen.

The Winds of Change

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Anger can cloud the mind. Generally better to seek calm. But anger can also tell us when we’ve let things go long enough. Isn’t anyone else angry? Really?

I tried to find a way to stand up for Al Franken. Really.

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

Thinking about it, I figure I had at least four good reasons for wanting to give U.S. Sen. Al Franken, Minnesota Democrat-Farmer-Labor, the benefit of the doubt.

The Dog That Didn’t Bark

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017
