Today’s female teacher rape of students

I used to think statutory rape was a crime exclusively committed by men. Like a lot of things I used to think, it ain’t so anymore.  Is this part of the women’s movement?  Today’s female teacher (assistant) rapist is employed at Belen High School in Belen, New Mexico (about 25 miles South of Albuquerque on…

Great idea for a car wash

President Obama, Send Your Deadbeat Supporters to Wash My Car. My car needs washing, and frankly I’d prefer that the losers who think Obama’s “free” community college idea is super awesome get off their lazy hindquarters and wash it for me for free. Sure, I could pay for it myself, but then I’d have to…

A quote that explains a lot

“The behavior of any bureaucratic organization can best be understood by assuming that it is controlled by a secret cabal of its enemies.” —Robert Conquest, author of The Great Terror, often cited as the definitive account of Stalin’s purges.

Liam Neeson ruined my day

I got acquainted with Liam Neeson as an actor in the 1995 movie, Rob Roy, which I liked a lot. He was also great in the 1998 Les Miserables and he played a tough guy in the first Taken movie. He’s been in a lot of movies I haven’t seen, but he was probably good in…
