Common Sense

Another Take on SOTU

There is no monopoly on knowledge or wisdom. Common sense has no pride. It will and can live anywhere (an exception might be college campuses, particularly Ivy League ones). It will and does occupy all sizes, shapes and colors of humanity. If you want to know what is going on, go into the inner cities or rural backwater towns. Talk [...]

Some Wisdom

Reader Gary sends in this Thought of the Day: When you are dead you don’t know you are dead. It is difficult and painful only for others. It is the same when you are stupid!

Liberalism Run Amuck In Universities

Nowhere is Liberalism more out of control than within US universities. Having spent much time there both as student and professor, I assure you that conditions are much worse than most imagine. Faculty are arrogant, educated beyond their level of competence and dangers to themselves, their students and society. Open-mindedness and open inquiry do not exist. Universities have been turned [...]

The Coherence of Liberalism

I suppose it is unfair to pick on one political ideology but this one was too good to pass up. I have nothing comparable for conservatives, although I would guess something similar exists. Send in whatever you feel might be appropriate.

Welfare Reform

This appeared a few years ago in the Waco, TX newspaper. It provides a no-nonsense “solution” to welfare. Waco Tribune-Herald, Nov. 18, 2010 Put me in charge Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of [...]

The Fruits Of Ignorance

Ignorance is what made an Obama possible. It is also what ensures that his successors will be worse.

ObamaCare — A Hacker’s Wet Dream

imagine some retired lady in Utah, who has $75,000 dollars in the bank, saving her whole life, having it wiped out in one day because she signed up for Obamacare. And believe me, this is going to happen millions of times. This is a hacker’s wet dream. I mean I cannot believe that they did this.

Race Hustling by Thomas Sowell

You don’t hear about racial “leaders” like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson among Asians or Asian-Americans. Here and there you may see some irresponsible academics peddling that line in the classroom — some of whom are of Asian ancestry, since no race of human beings is completely lacking in fools.

Where Is Thomas Paine Today?

Big government is a burden to society. The nasty truth is that it is not a necessary one, but one devised by the political class as a means to elevate themselves and their cronies. It is a useful to us today as King George was in the past.. It is the modern-day version of King George.

Makes Sense To Me

Tom Lester sent these in: THESE POSTERS HIT A HOME RUN…TAKE THE TIME TO VIEW THEM ALL AND CONSIDER THE MESSAGE THEY SEND.. (If that had happened, the Ten Commandments would still be being debated in Congress, and there would now be 2000 pages of them!) T Isn’t it too bad that the first Black man elected as President wasn’t [...]

Safety Net or Hammock?

Society can be evaluated in many ways. One of the simplest reflections of what has become to our society is dealt with below: The question of the year!!!!?? We are always hearing about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about Welfare running out of money? What’s interesting, the first group “worked [...]

Karl Denninger Officially Goes Galt

It is happening throughout the country. The productive are choosing to become less so. Rarely, however, does one do so in the fashion that Karl Denninger chose. Mr. Denninger operates a website known as The Market Ticker and is known for his financial analysis and intolerance of most things government. He has decided to “go Galt.” Going Galt is usually [...]
