ISIS is not just for the religious anymore

According to CNSNews, Secretary of State John Kerry said recently that religion does not necessarily play a role in turning some Muslims into radical Islamic terrorists. This makes sense since President Obama claims that ISIS is not Islamic. This despite …

Black songs matter!

If one is white one cannot sing Rihanna’s song “Umbrella” because one is, um, white. To do so would cause a microagression, or something.

According to Fox News’s Todd Starnes, a female student of the Caucasian persuasion was told in …

Do the wave or the terrorist win

President Barack Obama is nothing if not predictable. Following the recent terror attacks in Brussels, he did what almost any president would do – he took in a baseball game with his new BFF, Cuban dictator Raul Castro, at Havana’s …

Can’t anybody here play this game?

While watching his futile 1962 Mets team, losers of 120 games, give another dismal performance, manager Casey Stengel reportedly quipped, “Can’t anybody here play this game?” The Mets didn’t try to lose, yet they did it with remarkable regularity. The 2016 presidential campaign is shaping up much the same way. It’s hard to see that either party is really trying to win.

John Roberts: Words mean what he says they mean

Just the other day I stopped off at an International House of Pancakes for breakfast. I don’t usually eat breakfast out. Most often, my breakfast consists of some type of cereal marketed to kids that Michelle Obama demands I not eat, yet on this occasion I had the opportunity to eat a hearty breakfast that someone else cooked. So, I took advantage and looked forward to a big meal. The delightful hostess walked me to a table where soon an equally delightful waitress greeted me.

Climate change – it’s not just for weather anymore

Recently, President Obama suggested that climate change “helped create the instability in Nigeria that was exploited by Boko Haram.” He further claimed that it was at least partially responsible for the civil war in Syria. Heck, it’s even a national security issue.

A PUSH In the Wrong Direction

More details have come out on the new Advanced Placement U.S. History exam (APUSH) issued by the College Board in 2014. It’s pretty bad, to say the least. It is nothing less than an “official” account of the American past, written by leftists with an agenda.

It’s not Terrorism, it’s activism…or something

Better Lathe Than Never …

This is the story of my lathe acquisition a few years ago. Other options for the title of this post were: “I’ll Learn to Turn”, “Lathes and Gentleman, I Have a New Toy”, “Yearnings and Turnings”, and “Burning to Get Turning”. I was tempted (and succumbed) once again by that evil temptress, the tool section on Craig’s List. I bought a Jet 1236 lathe.
