‘The Joke’ is a mirror of our times…

Every thinking American should find time to read Milan Kundera’s The Joke as soon as possible. Anyone who wants fully to understand what is being carefully orchestrated in our country should read this book. Those who are bewitched by CRT, equity as opposed to guarantees of equal opportunity, those who have fears of climate change, […]

Rage

This is the angriest I have ever been about politics in my life. Why now? They hated my beloved Reagan and called him all kinds of names. True, but they were unable to stop him from being elected twice. The left seemed to support McCain and Romney, those polite go along to get along guys; […]

A contrarian view of the current reigning orthodoxy

Let’s first get out of the way what we all agree on here. This withdrawal of Afghanistan could not have gone worse and the mess and violence was all avoidable. Instead of loading American planes as fast as we had to with tons of Afghanis hoping they were our allies who needed to be brought […]

The two Staples of Liberalthink: CLOSEDMINDEDNESS and PROJECTION

Coriolanus is my favorite Shakespeare play because it represents everything one needs to know about politics in any era. And I am a political animal. I saw a production of this play recently and it was marvelous and so was the discussion of it by a scholar and the expert who put the production together. […]

Political Observations of a half century

Recently I saw a video of the speech Nixon gave to Americans about his going into Cambodia. Hearing it today it sounds sensible. But I remember how the left excoriated him. I always thought there was subversion from other countries exploiting the anger of the young to try to harm the country’s unity. We only […]
