HuffPo Columnist Calls For an End to Right-Wing Terrorism and an Apology to Napolitano


For almost a decade I worked in a domestic violence shelter. I sat with women who were shaking, bruised and ashamed. They were in utter shock and disbelief at the violence that had just occurred. The names of the people in each woman’s story were different but the story lines were remarkably the same.
Police [...]

Could ObamaCare Fundamentally Change the American Family?


So, now we know that the Obama campaign strategy was actually based on that “ice breaker” game of “Tell Two Lies and a Truth.” In this game, usually reserved for youth meetings, the other players have to sort out the truth from the lies.
In a campground setting, we get to find out an interesting tidbit [...]

Texas Board of Ed Refuses to Be Bullied By Academic Elite


When I was at college — at Boston University, in the mid to late eighties — I took an education course that required students to give a mock lesson to the rest of the class. An aspiring social studies teacher chose a controversial topic (I don’t recall what it was) for his lesson, and the [...]

Hannity Hit by Ugly Attack from RIGHT-Wing Blogger (for a Change)


If it’s a day ending in “y,” that means it’s time for the Huffington Post and Media Matters to scream about Sean Hannity.  But this time around, the charges are far worse than calling a governor a “governor,” and the accuser is no “psycho leftist liberal.”
Conservative, anti-jihad blogger and film critic Debbie Schlussel alleges that [...]

Bill Maher’s HuffPo Column: “Firing All the Teachers May Feel Good–We’re Americans, Kicking People When They’re Down is What We do”


Not long ago I wrote “Save a School-Fire a Teacher?” about a failing school district that fired all of its teachers in response to the outrageous demands from the teacher’s union.
Bill Maher has a different take on the situation. Maher writes in the Huffington Post:
“Fire the bad teachers, hire good ones from some undisclosed location, and [...]

Dan Rather Stumbles, Chris Matthews Fumbles Over Watermelons and Racism


I’m not a slapstick fan. Honestly, much to my family’s dismay, I really don’t care to watch “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” Where, I would venture to guess, most of the action is preceded by the phrase, “Hey, hold my beer—an’ watch this…”
Although, I did find it slightly amusing and very telling, to watch Chris Matthews [...]

The Sleep-Deprived Housewives of Victimhood County


The patriarchy is keeping Naomi Wolf up at night.
Young girls in Yemen are forced into marriages with adult men, lesbians in South Africa face “corrective rape,” and women throughout the Muslim world suffer indignity, violence, and death under Sharia law.  But that’s not the sort of horrific oppression interrupting Wolf’s beauty rest.
The “next big issue” [...]

New “HuffPost Religion” Launched For The “Sane” America


One of my fondest childhood memories of my father, was that he was dashingly handsome. He was a classic man of his day; a cigarette in one hand, a martini in the other, and a smile that would have earned him a place in the “Rat-Pack”.
I remember distinctly, sitting in the chair in his salon, [...]

HuffPo: Nanny State Saves Poor Children, and Money–The Left’s Morality


If you want a good example of job creation by the government, look into the field of Early Childhood Education.
Perennial studies of “poor children” and their achievement gaps, are always cropping up to provide the Left with a bouquet of social programs. Which of course, translates into job security and a moral platform for the [...]

Meghan: Cover Girl for New Progressive Movement or Cool Factor for GOP?


Just Me & My Progressive Posse
Meghan McCain announced this past week, on the far-from-reality show “The View”, that she considers herself a “progressive” Republican. Having heard many of her witticisms in the past, this came as no great shock to me.
But perhaps I am being too hasty in discounting Meghan’s philosophy. Perhaps she is more [...]
