Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina….

  Don’t cry for me, Argentina Politics and rugby.  For this guy, it doesn’t get much better than this.  I got to watch the Argentinian team run rampant through the Rugby World cup, showing a strength and agility that a top tier team would envy.  It’s hard to push the Australians around, but push them […]

Americans are Exceptional… Except When They Aren’t.

Americans are Exceptional… Except When They Aren’t. I had occasion to see the New Zealand All Blacks wafflestomp the USA eagles a couple of weekends ago.  Now, before those of you who are less exceptional than the rest of us get your panties in a twist, the All Blacks are named for their uniforms, not […]


Voting American Style

Voting American Style By now everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, is sick and tired of nasty political ads telling everyone that listens that everyone, except for themselves, are paragons of evil. We even have websites that check the accuracy of the ads and claims. Even political junkies like Lefty and me, are tired of it. […]

Same-Sex Marriage: The Conservative Struggle Isn’t What You Think…

    A thought occurred to me as I listened, recently, to a gentleman speak about his opposition to marriage equality.  There was nothing unique or novel about his arguments; I had heard them all before.  He spoke of the devaluation of the institution of marriage, the harm to children raised in same sex homes, […]


Iowa: A State of Poor Mental Health

Iowa: A State of Poor Mental Health   The Register had an article this week decrying the lack of mental health services in Iowa in general, and Des Moines in particular.  Mercy has decided to shutter its outpatient clinics for adult mental health, leaving 8000 patients without a provider.  Some of Mercy’s providers have retired, some went elsewhere, and some started […]

A Tale of Two Senators: Brad Zaun and Joni Ernst

A Tale of Two Senators: Brad Zaun and Ernst Sen. Brad Zaun made local and national news when he revealed he took his weapon, along with his 2nd Amendment right to carry it, to the Iowa State Capitol.  The Des Moines Register, who made Sen. Zaun’s video interview available online, seemed astounded that anyone would have the […]


Obama: Give Me Liberty or….Give Me Space

Give me Liberty, or Give me Space…   In 2012, President Obama was caught in a live mic gaffe with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev stating, “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved – but it’s important for him to give me space.”  At the time, Obama was under pressure at […]

Leftys & Obamacare: Liars or Just Plain Dumb?

Leftys: Liars or Just Plain Dumb? When looking at Liberal policies and platforms, I am always struck by the lack of real world common sense said policies are based.  First, let’s take Obamacare, a favorite target of mine. Using the Left’s numbers of uninsured, 48 million, we can easily see that 8 million people signing […]


Why ARE Medications so Expensive?

Why Are Medications So Expensive? It’s easy to blame greedy corporations for the price of medications.  Some people think pharmaceutical companies create diseases, just to sell the cure to the public.  Other people believe drug companies gouge consumers just to make as much money as they can.  And others, like Lefty, think modern pharmaceuticals are […]

Where is the Reasonable Debate in America?

Where is the reasonable debate in America?  I cannot find any reasonable debate on cable or national TV. Anywhere. For the last week, I have watched more TV than I ever have in my life. I’m close to 30 hours in the last five days. I don’t see any form of meaningful, reasonable debate. I […]
