Charlie Sheen was fired. Should we care so much?

March 9, 2011


I’m now blogging over at Liberty Ink Journal… and I took on the Tiger Blood: Charlie Sheen, with his self-destructive behavior and his repetitive delusional media interviews, is exploding across the news, as a self-destructive three-ring circus in one Hollywood star’s body. Just today, he was officially fired by CBS and Warner Brothers, and once […]

“Do Ask, Do Tell” and We’ll Magically Become Unbigoted

December 22, 2010


Social liberals are lauding the day that our lame-duck Congress repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”. This ushers in a new era, we’re told, an end to bigotry and injustice.  In reference to DADT, John Legend tweeted the other day: “I wonder if Republicans enjoy being on the wrong side of history when it comes to justice […]

Interview with a Young Oak, Part 2 – Elections and Religion, ooh boy

October 20, 2010


My good friend Joey and I like to have “big issue” discussions now and then, and I’ve often found that after talking with Joey I’m mulling over deeper things and different perspectives than I would after talking with nearly anyone else. I completely respect his lines of thinking, love his blog and hope you’ll enjoy […]

October 7, 2010


Here in California, all we’ve been hearing about the last few days is how horribly Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman treated her poor housekeeper of nine years, Nicky Diaz. We’ve heard about how Whitman knew she was undocumented and yet continued to employ her in violation of Whitman’s own publically-held principles, how Nicky was eight […]

Everybody’s been asking me what I think about Prop. 8. OK, fine, you twisted my arm. I’ll talk about controversial things!

August 5, 2010


So, federal Judge Vaughn Walker in California overturned Proposition 8 yesterday, calling it irrational.  In a written opinion, Walker was in favor of rights activists who argued that a November 2008 referendum which barred gays and lesbians from tying the knot was discriminatory and therefore violated the US Constitution. In an unrelated story, 79% of […]

More thoughts on Immigration

June 7, 2010


As promised, I’ve been thinking more about the Illegal Immigration Hoopla, it started to dawn on me that we don’t have an immigration problem. Really. We have an entitlement problem. Slowly but surely we’ve gotten to the point where we can’t just open the borders and let people in like we used to, because we […]

Meghan McCain and Rand Paul: Maybe they’re sort of unevenly matched.

May 25, 2010


Meghan McCain has spent the last year or so trying really really hard to be cool. Which, in today’s climate, basically means spending a lot of time trash-talking the same ideas that everybody else trash-talks and then trying to pretend that you’re bravely going where nobody’s ever gone before. It also includes wild accusations of […]
