Will somebody please inform me who is in charge these days? Because I’m ready to follow Joan of Arc. At least women and children seem to accept that uncertainty is part of the taking charge process. Nobody claimed it isn’t hard to lead a cavalry charge — especially if you think you look funny on a horse.

As more than one disillusioned idealist has uttered: If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there’d be a shortage of sand. But my trouble is finding out just who is in charge … Continue reading

No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country, but by making the other dumb bastard die for ‘his.’ The crueler war is, the sooner it is over. We have war when at least one of the conflicting parties wants something more than it wants peace. Yet any unjust peace is better than a just war…

The question I have been both asked and posed as we embark on yet another war is what would you do to those degenerates and their supporting cast of ISIS scumbags who beheaded those journalists and barbarously executed hundreds of … Continue reading

It seems like most everyone, everywhere is lying these days. They only tell the truth when there is more profit in it. But if you throw the crap back in their face they learn there are consequences. Everyone, that is, except my ex-Stephanie…

The death notice in a local Ohio newspaper included a simple last request by the deceased, Scott Entsminger. The avid Cleveland Browns fan, sought that his beloved NFL team provide six pall bearers to carry him to his grave — … Continue reading

In this national emotional whirlpool of guns, Newtown slaughter, movies of Osama’s noble revenge and torturing evil men let me warn you: Fear rules! Fear makes strangers of folks who would be friends. The greater the fear the more government controls you, me and everything…

One time a few years back in West Africa we got caught in a bit of a fire fight. These very unsophisticated-looking, unsmiling fellows were shooting and throwing pointy things at us. And it was no use trying to convince … Continue reading

The reason Mumia Abu-Jamal wasn’t executed after 30 years is that lawyers are like counterfeiters making too much money passing bad paper. When you read something you can’t understand you know it was drawn up by a lawyer…

My new-best-friend of 30 minutes asked me to go with him to attend last  week’s rally commemorating the 30 years since the arrest of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. I studied the placid, aging radical. We had met over a … Continue reading

Anyone who has been married with kids knows that we all torture one another. It comes naturally. Hell, just drive down the highway without your finger talking.

When I was growing up, there were two things that were unpopular in my house: One was me. The other was my trumpet. And, by golly, I may not have been any Harry James, or Satchmo or even Al Hirt. … Continue reading

When it comes to unions, Republicans and Democrats everyone seems to forget: Don’t use a hatchet to remove a fly from a friend’s forehead.

So tell me who is lying. The unions stipulate that at least 12 workers a day across the country are being killed because the government isn’t funding OSHA to check on all the dangerous working conditions, especially for immigrant laborers … Continue reading
