Alas, those book shops of yore…and a tale of the joys of Big Gov bureaucracy.

Alas, those book shops of yore…and a tale of the joys of Big Gov bureaucracy.

For us hicks from the American provinces whose real education took place a half century back in the bookshops of Berkeley and Greenwich Village, recent news about Manhattan’s legendary Strand Book Store fighting off extinction is both sad and illuminating. The sad part is that bricks-and-mortar bookshops like The Strand and Cody’s (on Berkeley’s...

Election Day: Referendum on the Trump Train vs. the Obama/Clinton Plantation

America has A CHOICE: GOOD IDEAS that actually benefit people, not theoretically but in actual practice. Record high employment (and record low unemployment)! Strength as a deterrent to our enemies abroad! Making America Great Again, within and without! (Even the NY Times is forced to accept the success of the Trump economy.) ROTTEN IDEAS...

“Cause a crowd!” + “Open Borders”=”New Democrats”=Permanent Democratic Majority=Official Dem Party policy

Unpopular? Not winning elections legitimately? Can’t force self-reliant voters to surrender their liberties? More and more, finding yourself out of power? Try The Democrat Way! Sow a little chaos, violence and distraction. “Cause a crowd…” from South Of The Border. If things are really going your way, there will be some gunned-down martyrs… All...

Out-of-power Dems desperately selling “socialism” and, inevitably, resorting to force if The People aren’t buying.

Socialism/communism of the past century-Russia/ Germany/ China/ Cuba/ Venezuela/ N.Korea/ Indochina-has an uninterrupted history of violence, murder, torture, tyranny: something on the order of 100 million+ liquidated souls, a billion+ more enslaved. Why should we be surprised that today’s American Left is any less ruthless and desperate to enforce what freedom-loving people will never...

Abortion: That’s a person. AN INDIVIDUAL in there.

Abortion: That’s a person. AN INDIVIDUAL in there.

In light of the Left’s panic over the possibility of a Conservative Supreme Court turning the pivotal issue of abortion over to each of the INDIVIDUAL 50 states rather than to 9 lawyers in DC, sane and sober reflection is most timely. Columnist Mona Charen earns the highest kudos for pointing out the profound...

The God That Failed, Revisited: “Once upon a time, I was a liberal…”  Time to Walk Away.

Can it be? Hillary voters, lifetime reflexive Progs, WALKING AWAY from the Democratic Party? Perhaps it’s a combination of human decency and common sense, people embarrassed to be associated with a Party for whom Power is everything, its desperate face that of Maxine Waters , Nancy Pelosi , intimidating, ambushing Trump supporters...

Orwelliana: The REAL meaning (and power) of words

Perhaps the most difficult task of staying afloat in our increasingly contentious, politicized environment is maintaining clarity. Dividing and confusing us is the Left’s most powerful tactic, the means to their evil ends of controlling us. Without the bedrock of agreed-upon definitions and the meaning of words themselves, we are lost. The only alternative...
