America has something of a cottage industry in telling people what they want to hear.  Want to leave raising your kids to a day-care center?  Countless books and articles praise your decision.  Day cares do everything from “socializing” children to exposing them to a large variety of germs that will fortify their immune systems.  Don’t […]

The Wall Street Journal has an essay on child prodigies.  Apparently they’re getting too much attention growing up.  I’m not opposed to parents with a child genius ensuring they get  a grounded upbringing.  Child geniuses that grow to adults can be insufferable snots (remember Steve Jobs?). But given the statistics in the article and the […]

Obamacare, though not prominent in today’s news is still destroying our nation’s private healthcare system, while allowing favored entities of the left to gorge themselves with our grand-children’s money, Be prepared to throw up a bit in your mouth after reading Weekly Standard’s, Obamacare In the Blue States!

A few days ago Antipodius posted two contrasting videos of President Bush and President Obama addressing West Point. It struck me at the time how those graduates were able to hold their tongues (and their applause) as the current President gave a speech trying to convince us all that he’s not weak. Really, just ask […]

What will President Obama do after the midterms? Any new things? He needs to consolidate and try to make permanent his changes to this country. His first priority will be to extend the duration of his influence by helping the next Democratic presidential nominee. We all believe that a deal was made with the Clintons […]

Some people say the second amendment applies to a nation that once relied upon a militia for its defense, rather than a standing army. Since we have a standing army and no longer rely on calling up armed civilians, the second amendment no longer applies and cannot be used as a rationale for citizens to […]

I have no doubt that the administrator  of each separate region and separate  hospitals got together some where or some how and conspired to shorten the waiting list for our vets. They all need to go to jail for a long time. I can see them at some conference, paid for  by us taxpayers, drinking […]

. . . for one of my fictional characters who lived in the early Eighteenth Century.  I need a real noblewoman, preferably Danish, who was born around 1698, so I start cruising through the years in the Danish version of Wikipedia.  Wikipedia depends heavily on volunteers to provide content, and there are many more English-speaking […]

Top 10 Rock Albums: A Pop Culture Post

 

shutterstock_128480060Forgetting politics for a bit (tired of the downer posts): What 10 rock (or pop) albums would you want if you were stranded on a desert island? Just don’t call me a dinosaur when you see my picks . . .

My list (in no particular order — and with no greatest hits albums):

1. Who’s Next by The Who (IMHO, the best rock album of all time)
