Immediately after crazed gunman Jared Lee Loughner gravely wounded Arizona U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, killed U.S. Judge John M. Roll and six other people while wounding twelve innocent bystanders, the immigration rhetoric subtly ratcheted up. Denouncing Gifford’s shooting, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik and others made it clear that what they referred to as “inflammatory […]

The USA Today article almost caused me to drive off a bridge to nowhere. Our government can’t even squander our money efficiently — particularly where earmarks are concerned. Earmarks, says FactCheck.org, “are government funds that are allocated by a legislator for a particular pet project, often without proper review.” Often slipped into large authorization bills […]

Last Saturday morning 20 people were shot in a Tucson Safeway parking lot by a 22-year-old who stated on YouTube he “won’t pay debt with a currency that’s not backed by gold and silver.” Fifteen minutes after the news broke, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin tweeted, “The price of gold today is at $1,368.90 an […]

Making Sense by Michael Reagan It takes what a lot of my Jewish friends call chutzpah for House Democrats who ran the House of Representatives since 2003 as if it was their solely owned domain for so long, now to demand a policy of the very bipartisanship they scorned. With Republicans now at last in […]

Democrat Nancy Pelosi said she had no regrets as she handed over the House speaker role to Republican John Boehner. Judging how cartoonists covered Pelosi over the last year, maybe Boehner shouldn’t be too thrilled. Click to view our Lame Duck cartoon slideshow.

It was Groucho Marx who famously stated, “I would never belong to any club that would have me as a member.” Smart guy. If he were still around today Groucho would never find himself at the checkout counter fumbling through dozens of club cards. Of course for his obstinacy he’d have to pay exorbitant prices, […]

The latest numbers show only 40% of Americans actually make New Year’s resolutions. Sure, I did it once – five years ago this week I reluctantly quit smoking. If you listen to anecdotes about people who quit smoking, they always “smoked three packs a day.” I only smoked two. Two packs. Everyday since junior high. […]
