The Lost Prophecies of Richard Pryor

OK, STRONG LANGUAGE WARNING (just in case: it is Richard, after all). Next, if you think this is racist, then take it up with Richard (I think the man was hilarious, not to mention a comic genius).  However, I was also struck by the uncanny similarities between then and now (hence the title of this…

Addictions

I will share a tale of travesty and woes (for me anyhow.) It all started at dinner….. Tonight I made fish with veggies en papillote. Sounds all French and fancy, huh? Well, all I did was the same thing we did in the Girl Scouts, so I suppose those French pomme frites ain’t got nuthin…

Site Note

All, and especially new commenters, if you post a comment and it doesn’t show right away, it may be stuck in the spam filter. There are some that are getting snagged that shouldn’t be. We seem to be getting hit with a lot lately. I’m working on it, not as fast as I’m working on…

The Mercatus Center at George Mason Launches a New Series

Most Biblically-Hostile President

    Every Christian,needs to read this with an open mind.  The Bible is “TRUTH”.  Tell the truth and trust the people.  Well documented with footnotes and facts.     There is no author to credit, but whoever wrote it did their homework.  Every Christian needs to be aware of this and vote in November.…

The Ultimate Taxation without Representation: Deficit Spending

I was asked to start this post, and to do so thusly: “A government debt is a government claim against personal income and private property – an unpaid tax bill.” — Hans Sennholz source:  http://www.treasurydirect.gov/govt/reports/pd/histdebt/histdebt.htm However, I was also told I could add my own commentary to this thread, so I will avail myself of…

The Brilliance that is Obama

Just “Tax the Richtm“. Why didn’t I think of that? Maybe because we know that it won’t work – but a failed president exhibits what a failed president does to fail – he pushes failed policies. PRESIDENT Barack Obama has drawn sharp election battle lines between himself and rival Republicans by pressing Congress to maintain…

A Quick Note

To all who correspond with me via an email address at British Telecom – the emial that ends in @btinternet.com – this account will die tomorrow as I have changed Internet providers. I switched to SKY, owned by Rupert Murdoch – who also owns FOX… Yes, Hillary was right, we are a vast right wing…

The Men Behind the Curtain

For decades, there have been people who have tried to explain that our society is being consciously manipulated by powerful groups of self-interested people who work behind the scenes to form and direct public opinion for the purpose of controlling global events.  Unfortunately, whenever they try to expose these people, their intentions and their methods,…

Americanism and Capitalism are NOT to blame, Cronyism IS

Commentators have been blaming Capitalism and the Republicans for America’s economic woes.  Well, I’ll agree that one of those accused is PARTLY to blame for America’s woes.  It ain’t Capitalism.  Cronyism by Republicans and Democrats is to blame. What continues to surprise me today, are the self described “liberals” in the Democrat party that still blame…

COMMERCIAL POETRY

{Look, parodies just don’t pay the light bill, limericks (all of them, put together) and a dollar seventy-eight will get me a cup of coffee, and poet laureate work is hard to come by. My only choice is to use my phenomenal talent to feed my family. How else am I to do that other…
