April 18, 1906 – An estimated 7.8 – 8.3 earthquake rattles more than just a few teeth along the western seaboard. The quake’s magnitude is an estimate at best because seismic monitoring capabilities were not yet available, but by anyone’s estimate, the quake was massive. It was felt from as far north as Coos Bay, Oregon, as far south as Los Angeles and even beyond Carson City, Nevada. The city of Santa Rosa was obliterated and Stanford University was left in severe ruins.
There is no doubt that at the turn of the 20th Century, San Francisco was the major economic and social hub of the... (more)
I know how John McClane felt in Die Hard 2: Die Harder when he said, “I’m really getting tired of being right all the time.”
Remember I wrote an article where I laid the murder of Jamile Andre Shaw, Jr., at the feet of L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa? Remember that I said that it was L.A.’s sanctuary city policy that allowed Pedro Espinosa to remain in the city because Los Angeles has an official policy of not helping Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents locate and deport known illegal aliens? Remember how I said that the reason for this policy... (more)
Senator and Republican candidate for president John McCain spoke to an audience at Carnegie Mellon University where he called on Congress to temporarily suspend the 18.4 cent and 24.4 cent per gallon federal fuel taxes on gasoline and diesel, respectively, as a means of easing the burden on American motorists who find themselves proverbially raped at the pump. The problem is, the temporary suspension won’t help one iota.
Time for a little refresher course in mathematics. Don’t worry, you need only read. The actual cypherin’ will be done for you courtesy of the Jethro Bodine School of... (more)
What about that subtitle bothers me? Can anyone guess what it might be? Go ahead and stop reading here for a moment and thing about the subtitle. I’ll wait here patiently while you consider my question.
Oh, you’re back. Finished? Good. Did you come up with an answer? If you did, keep reading and see if you are right. If you didn’t keep reading anyway for some enlightenment.
First of all, about three or four years ago, Wal-Mart stopped selling handguns all together. Currently they only sell weapons referred to as “long arms” – rifles and shotguns to be exact. Second of all, which... (more)
Sometimes it’s fun to just sit and watch people make fools of themselves. The best part is that sometimes it doesn’t take long for them to shove their foot so far into their mouth that they actually swallow their belt.
I’ve pretty much stayed away from criticizing Barack Obama too heavily because 1) he’s new to the national political arena and 2) I don’t want to come off as racist. He’s only been a U.S. Senator for a couple of years now and really has too little experience to be president. That said, my second reason for leaving him alone is because when I go after someone, I want it... (more)
This one is for my friends in New York. If you happen to listen to former Air(head) America liberal talk-show host, Randi Rhodes, you may have heard back in October that she was mugged near her Manhattan apartment in an attack which cost her several teeth and was planned by the right-wing conservative movement as a response to her program.
And the Federal Reserve is planning to release a $26 bill with John F. Kennedy’s picture on it.
According to the New York Daily News, reports of Ms. Rhodes being mugged were as phony as a $26 bill. In fact the rumor of her attack being a mugging... (more)
Until Ronald Reagan’s second term in 1984, there was a saying in the political arena: As goes California, so goes America. In those days it meant that whatever position or candidate was supported by the majority of California the rest of the nation seemed to follow suit. Beginning in 1988 when George Herbert Walker Bush was elected president the tide began to turn because of the increasing amount of liberalism coming from California. Fortunately, the rest of America is a bit more conservative than California so many of the ultra left-wing wacko ideas that crawl out of the... (more)
Los Angelinos know by now what happened on March 2, 2008 in Arlington Heights. Seventeen-year-old Jamiel Andre Shaw, Jr., was murdered in cold blood by Pedro Espinosa – a known illegal alien and stupid, gutless, punk, coward, thug gang member. Shaw was a promising high school football star who was considering which college he would attend this fall. Instead, he lies in a grave under a cold piece of stone engraved with his name and two dates: his birth date and his death date. He had no record of any bad habits or of associating with the wrong crowd. In fact, when he was murdered, he was on... (more)
I watched a replay of Senator Obama’s response to recent publication of comments made by Jeremiah Wright from the pulpit of the Trinity United Church of Christ. In true slick fashion, Obama made the whole issue into a debate about racism in America and failed to acknowledge (or more appropriately ignored) the real issue at hand. The question still remains: “Does Obama really believe and hold in his heart those things which Wright said?”
Among his comments today, Obama did acknowledge that Mr. Wright said some things from the pulpit that are controversial... (more)
How many of us remember the great stock market crash? I don’t mean the 1929 crash, I’m talking about the Black Monday crash in October 1987. To this day no one has offered an accepted assertion as to why the stock market crashed that day or why the market has been so volatile over the last 12-14 months.
Because humans are capable of hubris. No other creature on the face of this earth has the capacity for hubris. Humans rationalize everything. We rationalize why we take something from work (“I’m only borrowing it.”). We rationalize why we don’t give back the extra money when a cashier... (more)
