Don’t Waterboard Me Bro!

Remember the little college dimwit who wrongly thought he had a right to speak freely at a John Kerry event last year, screaming “don’t taze me bro! – don’t taze me bro!” as police officers proceeded to taze him to the ground and remove him from the Kerry event?

Is Nancy Pelosi too Liberal for America?

—Satire—
Now that Nancy Pelosi has shattered the gender barrier, glass ceiling, and incredulity index all in one fell swoop, Americans are starting to worry that she may be just a tad too liberal to be second in the succession line for the presidency.

Bush-41 Working to Salvage Dubya’s Legacy?

—Satire—

After fathering the “worst president in U.S. history,” one would have expected the father of Dubya to discreetly keep his mouth shut and hope that historians somehow overlook the obvious blood link between George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.

Fidel Castro Out, Dubya In?

Fidel Castro’s relinquishment of power in Cuba may be of far greater significance to America and the world than is immediately obvious to the untrained eye.

Goodbye, Fidel, and Good Riddance

In 1959, six months before I graduated from the University of Miami, Coral Gables, Fidel Castro came to power in a coup that overthrew Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. It was big news on campus though I must confess that I knew next-to-nothing about Castro.

LAT: Heinlein’s Books too Manly to be Popular?

It is always curious when left leaning artists, writers and musicians get in high dudgeon when the American people criticize them for their overtly political statements. These leftist artists often argue that the “integrity of the art” means that critics have “no right” to criticize them.

The Gospel, According to a SF Liberal and Indicted Child Pornographer

Bernie Ward—Satire—

KGO-AM radio in San Francisco is a 50,000-watt public nuisance operated solely for the purpose of advancing the agenda of left wing extremists and anarchists, otherwise known as Democrats.

Programming for the station is forwarded to Moscow for final approval by communist power brokers before being aired locally for the exploitation of useful idiots in the ultra-liberal Bay Area.

What Will America’s Immigration Policy Look Like in 2050?

Addressing the issue of illegal aliens in a responsible and intelligent manner based on the interest of all American citizens has been made all but impossible by Latinos who are more concerned with increasing the population of Hispanics than they are in securing U.S. borders and enforcing the rule of law.

Obama’s Communist Mentor

In his biography of Barack Obama, David Mendell writes about Obama’s life as a “secret smoker” and how he “went to great lengths to conceal the habit.” But what about Obama’s secret political life? It turns out that Obama’s childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a communist.

Republican? Racist?

I am beginning to think the biggest problem McCain and fellow Republicans will have running against Obama is going to come down to being called a racist every time anything critical is said about him.

Conservatism is Dead; Long Live Conservatism?

It seems like just yesterday that many were reading liberalism’s epitaph.  After the Reagan years, Republican Revolution of 1994, retreat of the gun-control hordes after Al Gore’s 2000 defeat and George W. Bush’s two successful presidential runs, many thought conservatism was carrying the day.
