A conservative father’s letter to his daughters

Dec 9, 2016 — Daniel Wiseman

Dear Irit and Elisheva:

Yes, I voted for Trump. We all know the controversies. As Casey Stengel, manager of the Yankees in the 1950s said, “You can look’em up.” The fact is that Trump blasted through the politically-correct rhetoric and appealed to the heart of tens of millions of Americans who want to see their country re-dedicated to exceptionalism, and, yes, even, greatness.

Facts Another Fatality of Gun Violence Debate

Jan 20, 2013 — Daniel Wiseman

The first problem with the gun control debate is that it is riddled with emotion. Those on the Left feel that guns should be outlawed and those on the Right believe the right to keep and bear arms in the Second Amendment of the Constitution is unlimited.

Why the Jews Vote for the Democrats

Dec 25, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

Spend any time in American conservative circles, and if you are a Jew, you’ll receive the question, delivered with a sense of bewilderment, “How come the Jews vote Democrat?” The person asks out of concern, as in, how can the Jews – who are so bright, who take care of their families, who are hard working, who pay their taxes, (who I admire on Biblical grounds) – vote for the rapacious Democratic Party? Why do the Jews who have gained so much by living in the United States and who love Israel, support anti-American President Barack Obama, who conservative Christians also believe has incredible antipathy to the State of Israel?

Stop the Madness! Stop Negotiating with Obama!

Dec 8, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

In the old days, Washington politicians would have negotiations between the President and Congress, and both being somewhat well-meaning, they would split the baby in half.
However, today, with President Obama so ill-intentioned toward the United States and its future, negotiations between him and with those of us who oppose him are pointless.

Post Election Party

Nov 14, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

The country that we grew up in is pretty much gone and it’s not coming back.

Restless in New Jersey

Nov 2, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

I woke up this Friday morning and went outside my home in New Jersey at 6 a.m. to the sight of a mile-long line of cars waiting to re-fuel at a small gas station at the end of my block in the aftermath of devastating Hurricane Sandy.

Romney’s “47 percent” comment got it right

Sep 24, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

Bring it on, Mr. Romney. Game on. Make it a fight. Make it a clear choice and see what happens. Play to win, Mr. Romney. Don’t play not to lose, and you may just win. Play not to lose, and you will lose. If avoiding losing means anything to you, Mr. Romney, throw long as they say in football, because this president has the media in his back pocket, plus the public sector unions, and the recipients of government largesse and patronage.

The Country Must Stop “Letting Itself Go”

Sep 17, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

My grandmother had an expression, more a worldview, the way in which she separated the winners from the losers in life. If she really wanted to insult someone she would say: “I don’t understand why that person has let himself go.”

At year’s end, try improving instead of changing

Sep 3, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

“I can change.”

Every lying, cheating son-of-a-gun begging for another chance, not usually even a second chance or third or even a fourth or fifth chance, has used that line.

NCAA and Penn State: The Dance Continues

Aug 7, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

Disingenuous. The quality of being less than genuine or honest.

How else can one describe the NCAA’s penalizing its member school, Pennsylvania State University, for allegedly failing to stop the activities of a career pedophile on the football team’s coaching staff? For college football will this be the straw that breaks the proverbial camel’s back?

John Roberts’ “Gold Lining” Moment

Jul 11, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

Before everyone becomes too apoplectic and apocalyptic about the horrendous Supreme Court ruling upholding the Health Care Affordability Act of 2010, let’s pause to find the silver lining behind this veritable cloud.

Getting Used to the Good Life in New Jersey

Jul 2, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

Stepping outside onto the terrace of an apartment building in northern New Jersey brings the realization that the state is one large forest with towns and roads carved amidst it. That’s, of course, excluding the swamps across the Hudson River from New York City and the farmland to the west and south. One thing is for sure: It is no mystery why New Jersey is called the Garden State. New Jersey is verdant to a fault with mega-pollen outbreaks to confound allergy sufferers and mosquitoes to buzz the ears all night long ruining sleep patterns the entire summer.

Homosexuals and the elite private school sex scandal

Jun 25, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

The sex scandal is ever with us: Catholic priests; Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker; Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky; Coach Sandusky and Penn State. The list could and does go on and on. In America, sex sells beer, cars, deodorant, and everything else. We have become a highly-sexualized society compared to our Puritan and Pilgrim roots.

Obama, Congress, and “Disappointment Was My Closest Friend”

Jun 18, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

Disappointment seems to me to be a particular poison pill of our times. Rarely though do we hear of it mentioned as compared to other feelings. Disappointment is a “fine whine” of a feeling, cultivated, nurtured for years, and buried within the confines of one’s own heart or soul. However, when one looks under the anger, or the rage, or the addiction, or the rationalization or the self-justification, one finds almost always that that is where disappointment lives.

Tea Party People Shone Like Beacon in Wisconsin

Jun 11, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

Now that the country has been saved to live and fight another day, isn’t it time that all of us stop and salute and say “Thank Heaven for the Tea Party!”

That’s right, the June 5 Wisconsin recall election has come and gone with Gov. Scott Walker winning a stunning 54 percent of the vote and sending a stinging rebuke to those who believe in government instead of liberty and freedom.

Barack Obama’s perverse world without the perversity

May 31, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

Remarkably, in today’s highly sexualized world, the only thing President Obama is not perverse about is perversity.

49 Days of Life’s Lessons

May 16, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

On the Jewish calendar, this time of year commemorates the 49 days between the Exodus from Egypt and the Jewish people receiving of the Torah at Mount Sinai, 3000-plus years ago. Jewish tradition asserts that each of these 49 days represents a step from impurity to purity. Each day has its significance and import and is numbered and counted to inculcate fully that “today is the day” and it cannot be lived again and therefore one is obligated to focus upon that day, and to use it and to live it well.

“We can’t go back to Obama’s failed policies of the past”

May 10, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

There’s a scene from the BBC Comedy Series “Blackadder” that’s highly informative considering Barack Obama’s demented “Forward” campaign theme.

Government pandering in time of elections

May 3, 2012 — Daniel Wiseman

In Hollywood, there’s no business like show business. In politics, there’s no pandering like pandering to young adults.

Earth to Peggy Noonan – We have a Problem
