Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi is getting away with murder because the president of the United States refuses to take action when that's exactly what is called for.
HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody? President Obama rolled out his new motto, "Winning the Future," on the campaign trail this week. The administration is beset by unemployment and mounting debts. As Lincoln once said, it's a government of Charlie Sheen, by Charlie Sheen and for Charlie Sheen. A White House memo noted a shortage of high schools seeking President Obama as a graduation speaker Tuesday. The security is such a hassle. The ...
Watching Charlie Sheen's outbursts is a great entertainment for Americans. Here is a guy who has it all, fame, fortune, a great career and it is all crashing in on him because of addiction. We all know that Charlie Sheen is one 911 call from the morgue. He has made the ambulance trip before, and he doesn't see it coming. Denial is a classic symptom of drug addiction. Here is Charlie in his own words ...
HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody? Charlie Sheen was fired from CBS's Two and a Half Men by Warner Brothers Monday after two weeks of crazy behavior. He's unemployed. If he hadn't had to give up his twin boys last week to Child Services he'd have had to give them up this week for a tank of gas. The White House considered tapping the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to increase U.S. oil supplies and ...
HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody? The GAO reported Tuesday the current U.S. education system wastes billions using redundant programs. Forget classwork. China can never challenge us in satellite warfare as long as our educational system keeps churning out the world's best video game players. Britain threatened Moammar Khadaffi with a no-fly zone Monday and France threatened him with an arms embargo, while Germany threatened him with an economic blockade. The U.S. delivered ...
The U.S. economy often reacts a lot like a colicky baby that requires constant adjustments to exactly what and how much of something is going in one end so that the right thing comes out on the other without a lot of trouble.
Recently I crossed the threshold from fact-based reality into a bastion of Obama-loving denial. In other words, I went to one of the local public elementary schools.
HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody? Col. Moammar Khadaffi refused to step down Friday and he ordered Libyans to sing and dance in the streets. His military rank is not a real title. Forty years ago he received the honorary title of "colonel" for inventing a secret recipe for Southern fried goats. Khadaffi mystified the world Tuesday by going on television and blaming the revolt on Osama bin Laden slipping LSD into his ...
I'm going to bankrupt this country by any means necessary, and if you try to stop me or slow me down, I'll shut the government down and blame it on you.
Thuggish, "community organizing" politics showed up in Wisconsin after Commander-in-Chief President Obama, deployed his Organizing for America (OFA) troops to inject protestors into the Wisconsin budget debate Obama describes as an "assault on unions."
The turmoil and shocking thuggery we are now witnessing in Madison, Wis. is at a level seldom seen in America in this era.
"If we do this - change the date of the Washington holiday celebration - 10 years from now our school children will not know what Feb. 22 means. They will not know or care when George Washington was born. They will know that in the middle of February they will have a three-day weekend for some reason. This will come."
On Feb. 11, CBS Chief Foreign Correspondent Lara Logan was in Tahrir Square covering the celebration after Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak announced that he would step down.
Chances are you're serving up some home-grown dinner on your kitchen table tonight. Kansas farmers and ranchers consistently rank at the top in wheat, sorghum and beef production, with corn and soybeans following close behind. We even have a few folks growing cotton now. Kansas farmers produce this not just for us, but for millions around the globe who depend on us for a safe and affordable food and fiber supply. In fact, Kansas exports ...
We sure could use some more romance right about now - particularly among our younger people.
The saying, "A picture is worth 1000 words" is so true. In the case of my four month old grandson, we have a book started. Still nothing compares to actually holding, squeezing his chubby legs, or getting Bob to laugh out loud. As we enter the holiday season, families across the country hardly need a reminder that November 24th through the 30th is designated as National Family Week.
HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody?
"I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you," declared Nietzsche.
In 2006 I came up against a holiday deadline crunch, so I turned my column over to Turpy, the beloved eight-year-old Golden Retriever/Chow mix who had turned up at our doorstep as a puppy.
Come on, Oprah.
We humans like to divide time into neat little boxes based on dates, but the case can be made that the styles, policies, manners and mores of one ten-year period usually spill over into the next.
