A Thanksgiving Story: Don’t Fall Prey to Progressive Sin!

“How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? He’d chuck as much wood as a woodchuck could if a woodchuck could chuck wood.” I know it’s an old tongue-twister, but there’s a lesson to be learned here – and it’s not a mind twister. Some people – e.g. LEFTISTS – will never be satisfied no matter how much you give them. They will always find a way to want, to need, to deserve more of what you have. They will always want you keep less and use less of whatever they deem you ought...

Politics at Thanksgiving? Are you mad?

Today is Getaway Day for the Thanksgiving holiday and as I search the internet, I’m seeing a lot of articles on how to talk about politics at the Thanksgiving table.   As I think about all of the political arguments my family has engaged in when we assemble for Thanksgiving, the only response I have to these articles is, why? What idiot decided that we need to bog down an otherwise happy time with discussions about Obamacare, the Federal Reserve, the war in Iraq, and riots in Ferguson? What half-wit decided that a day dedicated to thanking Almighty God...

Benghazi’s Fat Lady Hasn’t Yet Sung

Part of this past Friday’s document dump was the Investigative Report on the Terrorist Attacks on U.S. Facilities in Benghazi, Libya, September 11-12, 2012 from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, chaired (for now) by Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI).   Startlingly, in stark contrast to accounts from three security contractors (Kris “Tanto” Paronto, John “Tig” Tiegen, and Mark “Oz” Geist) who survived the attacks and rescued approximately 25 Americans, the report concludes that not only was the security perfectly adequate prior to the attacks, but that no one gave a stand-down order to the team champing at the...

CLA Radio 11/14/14: Old School Country (Why Contemporary Country Sucks)

The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 11/14/14, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will concern itself with real country, as opposed to the crap I saw on this week’s CMA Awards show (although Brad and Carrie were cute, and very entertaining). Seriously, they play “Gentle On My Mind” and don’t mention John Hartford?? As Larry Cordle put it: For the steel guitars no longer cry And the fiddles barely play But drums and rock ‘n’ roll guitars Are mixed up in your face Also, get off my lawn. Hope you can stop by and listen, and...
