Welcome, once again, to Joe Biden’s America

If it looks to you like America is going to Hell in a hand basket, you are not alone.  Today's news seems to contain numerous stories of deteriorating conditions in our cities, including huge increases in homicide, carjacking, organized retail theft, kidnapping, explosions, and just general mayhem.  Nearly every day, I see a new story …

Harm reduction? I really don’t think so.

The latest "thing" in social attitudes toward the scourge of drug addiction is a movement called "harm reduction".  Sounds beneficial, doesn't it?  However, it's not beneficial, but enabling.  The movement has used such interventions as "safe injection sites", provision of clean needles to addicts, and mobile clinics to provide services, including the aforementioned clean needles. …

The Left really does inhabit an alternate Universe

In the last couple of days, the Left has amply demonstrated that their Universe greatly differs from obvious Reality.  These stories really have me shaking my head in disbelief.  First, here's an excellent article dealing with the Left's alternate Universe. Have you seen any Republicans "running scared" ahead of the upcoming Midterm Elections?  I sure …

We must always remember, September 11, 2001

Most every adult alive on that day remembers where he/she was and what they were doing that sunny Tuesday morning.  I was making breakfast before work, and I had the TV on when the story broke.  I saw one of the towers that looked like it was on fire.  Since it was in New York, …

Senator “Mom in Tennis Shoes” Patty Murray has a serious challenger this year

This year, I have started being a "survey respondent" for a variety of market research entities.  As such, I have filled out political surveys, and finally get to register my opinion, in a Leftist state where the Holy Sacrament of Abortion is very strong.  As a part of those surveys, I have had the distinct …

This week’s Electric Car News

This week, there have been some excellent stories on the state of the governments' plans to require everyone to drive electric cars.  The state of Washington had already passed their law that prohibits the sale or registration of gasoline-powered cars by 2035 (please note that the year WAS 2030, and now, for some reason, it …

Does this sound like America today?

I read Ayn Rand's huge novel, Atlas Shrugged, in high school, and I liked it then.  And it seems pretty pertinent now.  Here is a quote from that book.  To me, it sounds like what is going on in our country today. In my opinion, Americans need to wake up and resist the not-so-gradual enslavement …

I say, “Let them burn”

I saw a news story today about firefighters in Seattle.  It seems that, sometimes when the Seattle Fire Department responds to a fire, people at the site attack them.  Yes, people are attacking city firefighters! If you know anything about the modern city of Seattle, you know that it is riddled with homeless encampments all …

The lights are going out in Europe

And Germany has been the bellwether.  Back in the early 2000s, Chancellor Angela Merkel and her party made the momentous decision to begin the energy transition from "fossil fuels" to "renewables" as quickly as they could.  The scare-quotes around both terms are on purpose, because fossil fuels are not fossils (who is to say that …
