The GOP's Un-Reality Show

The latest Republican debate was difficult to sit through. Information was skimpy, and without Donald Trump entertainment value and ratings dipped. This "main event," as networks like to call it, became as dreary as the so-called under-card show in which barely-visible candidates take turns chopping down trees to see if they make noise in an empty forest.

Why Iowa and New Hampshire?

And now the question that's been dancing on the lips of politically concerned citizens for decades - Who's the genius that chose Iowa and New Hampshire to be the first and most influential states in determining who becomes the next president? It was probably the same guy who figured out how to bundle subprime mortgages. Or related to the brewer who invented Cold Turkey Breakfast Beer. The idiot behind pay toilets on airplanes.

GOP Debates Aren't Helping Much

Never before in the relatively brief history of televised presidential politics have debates been so important as in the current GOP campaign. Yet, through six lengthy debates precious little has been learned.

New Yorkie Values

To taunt his rival and sow seeds of evangelical doubt, Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz informed Donald Trump that the rest of the country was concerned about his alarming New York Values, totally ignoring the greater danger of the real estate developer's aerodynamic coif toppling over and knocking innocent supporters unconscious with its hard candy shell.

Will We Choose Freedom in 2016?

One of the greatest gifts my hardworking, blue-collar father gave me when I was young was the belief that no one owes me anything. His wisdom carried me through some difficult times growing up and helped shape me into the person I am today. It seems that self-reliant attitude my dad instilled in me is all but lost in this country.

Congress is Writing the President a Blank Check for War

While the Washington snowstorm dominated news coverage this week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was operating behind the scenes to rush through the Senate what may be the most massive transfer of power from the Legislative to the Executive branch in our history. The senior Senator from Kentucky is scheming, along with Sen. Lindsey Graham, to bypass normal Senate procedure to fast-track legislation to grant the president the authority to wage unlimited war for as long as he or his successors may wish.

Memories are the true trophies of the Pinewood Derby

In the universe of parenting young children, January is a dead zone of dreadful nothingness. Christmas gifts break or worse - become obsolete - cabin fever sets in, kids start fighting and dads suddenly find business trips to Scottsdale or San Diego. Clinicians long ago came up a clinical diagnosis called Seasonal Affective Disorder - SAD - which is translated to "get me out of here." I read where experts have noted that other mammals figured out the best way to cope with this - go find a cave and sleep for three months.
