Humor yesterday and in today’s cancel culture world

The other day I watched Netflix’s “Closer” Special with comedian Dave Chappelle. Now, don’t get me wrong. Chappelle is a funny guy. I especially respect him for his “anti-PC” comedy and commentary. It takes guts to speak your mind openly in today’s politically correct and cancel-culture world where just about … Read more…

Some Thoughts on the Art and Craft of Writing

I was interviewed recently about the art and craft of writing in general and writing in the historical fiction genre in particular. As a journalist for some thirty years, I interviewed thousands of people all over the world. Now that I am on the other side of the table, I … Read more…

A Mixed Metaphor Walks into a Bar….

All of us know that English is the most inconsistent, confusing, and maddening tongue on the planet. Unlike most other languages, it is often called a “bastard” language because of its multifarious etymological and philological foundations. English is a combination of Latin, Germanic, French, Saxon, Gallic, and Nordic tongues—to mention just … Read more…

Putting Things into Perspective: Suppose You Were Born in 1900

A few commentaries have been floating around the Internet for the past several years that have attempted to add a little perspective to the many critical issues and challenges we are facing today. I have adapted the contents of a couple of those to my essay here. Essentially what those … Read more…

Big Brother has arrived in America and his name is Joe Biden.

President Biden declared this week that not only can U.S. Senators be harassed by demented leftists while doing their “business” in public bathrooms, but parents who protest too passionately at public school board meetings about how their children are being indoctrinated in classrooms will be investigated as “domestic terrorists” by … Read more…

The American Descent into Madness

I occasionally re-post commentaries by Victor Davis Hanson, who is a distinguished fellow of the Center for American Greatness and the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. Hanson is always lucid and logical in his approach to the issues and problems facing America. Here he … Read more…

Why are We Allowing American Marxists to Destroy Our Nation?

The other day I was thinking how alarming it is that so many Americans today are embracing socialism and even communism. As a result, more and more of our precious freedoms are being eroded by unprecedented government overreach and repression. From vaccine and face mask mandates to the Marxist indoctrination … Read more…

A “General” Embarrassment: ‘Lyin’ Biden’ does it again!

Do you remember this exchange last month between President Biden and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos? If you don’t, here’s how it went: Stephanopoulos: “Your top military advisers warned against withdrawing on this timeline. They wanted you to keep 2,500 troops.” Biden: “No, they didn’t. That wasn’t true.” Stephanopoulos: “Your military advisers … Read more…

Herding Haitians. Lies and More Lies about Our Mounted Border Patrol

Last week border patrol agents on horseback near Del Rio, Texas were seen using their long reins to control their horses as they drove migrants attempting to illegally cross the border back into the Rio Grande River. What we saw WAS NOT a return to slavery, as fatuous California congresswoman … Read more…

YIKES! My Mayor is getting the Hell out of California

I live in a place called Murrieta. It’s a city of about 100,000 in Southern California’s wine country, just about 50 miles north of San Diego. Murrieta is a nice mid-sized town situated in rolling hills about 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean and maybe 30 miles from a couple … Read more…

Washington’s Useful Idiots & the Obliteration of America’s Wealth

I recently received a few emails that dealt with America’s mounting debt crisis and other economic issues. I took a few of those emails and restructured and rewrote them a bit into the following post. It attempts to explain the financial mess our country is in and how it got … Read more…

“The Chair” is a Microcosm of America’s Woke Universities

I just binge-watched Netflix’s six-part mini-series entitled “The Chair,” and brother did it bring back memories of when I was a University of Illinois department head and later, the dean of a college. Unlike my 13-years in academia, The Chair takes place at fictional ultra-liberal Pembroke University, which one faculty … Read more…
