On This Historic Day

Published on January 22, 2017 By sirrahc

As you probably have seen for yourselves, the media (including blogs of various sizes) has been awash with commentary on the Presidential Inaugural ceremonies — from the actual swearing in of Donald J. Trump as our 45th President to the various dances and observations of what the ladies in attendance were wearing. Rather than going […]

3 Positive Things About Obama

Published on January 21, 2017 By sirrahc

I was reflecting on all of the negativity in the press about the President-elect-now-President Trump from the Left and other detractors and about the now-former President Obama by the Right. I have posted several things over the years about how bad a president Obama has been, and I stand by them. But, now I’d like […]

Three Legislative Acts Ripe for Bipartisan Passage

Published on November 16, 2014 By sirrahc

“[W]e can surely find ways to work together on issues where there’s broad agreement among the American people.”  — President Barack Obama, post-midterms news conference (11/5/2014) A lot of the news these days is filled with talk about Obamacare (Grubercare?), immigration/amnesty, net neutrality, and climate change. But, I don’t feel like wading into those messes. […]

Don’t Screw It Up!

Published on November 9, 2014 By sirrahc

Though some of you may have already read your fill, I feel obliged to write some commentary on last week’s elections in the U.S. So, I’ll begin with the obligatory summary of election results: o  Not only did Republicans maintain their majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, but they gained at least an additional […]

Obama: Dispassionate Academic with Delusions of Grandeur

Published on December 16, 2012 By sirrahc

It is one thing to be extremely knowledgeable and/or talented and to “know it” — that is, adopt a cockiness or snobbishness as a result. At least there is a valid basis for the feeling of superiority, however annoying and insensitive it may be. It is another thing to find yourself in a position of […]

Rants and Reflections on the Election(s) (Part 2 of 2)

Published on November 14, 2012 By sirrahc

On Sunday I vented a bit. It needed to be done — and I think I spoke for many others, too –, so why not use the forum I have to make my opinions known, right? I called it a “rant”, but I think it was relatively tame, as rants go. Not an expletive or […]

Rants and Reflections on the Election(s) (Part 1 of 2)

Published on November 11, 2012 By sirrahc

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”   — Abraham Lincoln “AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!” That was my response (posted on Facebook), give or take an “R” or two, to the 2012 Election results. Actually, that was my second FB post. My first was, […]

D'Souza on American Anti-Americanism

Published on April 17, 2010 By sirrahc

“[D]reams of perfecting human society always runs smack into human nature.” — Thomas Lifson, editor and publisher at American Thinker When I hear people from other countries bad-mouthing the U.S., it bugs me. Don’t they see that we’re the good guys? Can’t they see what a great society we have here? But, what really bothers […]

This Ain't No Waterloo

Published on March 24, 2010 By sirrahc

Stupak and the Blue Dogs caved / drank the Kool-Aid / got bought off — don’t hold your breath for that executive order, Bart — and the Senate’s bill passed the House. Now what? Some on the Left (and part-time Republicans like David Frum) are saying that the passing of Obamacare signifies a “Waterloo” moment […]

So, Republicans Don't Have Any Better Ideas, Huh?

Published on January 30, 2010 By sirrahc

For months now, the Democrats/liberals have been mocking Republicans/conservatives for having no ideas or solutions for healthcare reform or to address the energy issue or jobs & the economy, etc. (I pointed out in a previous post that this was baloney.) In his State of the Union Address, President Obama went on record again challenging […]
