Political Correctness Runs Amok

When the 9/11 Commission released its report, it stated that Islamic terrorists were at war with us, but we weren’t at war with them. Basically, we treated their attacks as criminal matters. It seems history is repeating itself.

  • Obama still wants to close GTMO (Guantanamo Bay detention camp) and relocate its unrepentant combatants elsewhere. Luckily, even Democrats do not want these people in their states.
  • The NYC mayor has neutered the anti-terror division of the NYPD.
  • The Associated Press will not use the words “Islamic terrorist” in its stories.
  • Political correctness has run amok with the attorney general, who recently announced while speaking to a Muslim advocacy group last week that the parents of Muslim children are urged to contact the Justice Department and the Department of Education if their children are bullied at school. She pointed out an “area in which we are seeing growing areas of concern” involving our children, and the issues of bullying in the schools. (Point of interest: she has never urged Christian or Jewish parents of America to contact her if their children are bullied.)
  • People in this country have been bullied by the media, the Democrats and the politically correct crowd into shutting up about everything. We have seen over the last seven years the Republican Party being bullied into silence and shutting up about Obama and the Democrat Party for fear of being called racists.
  • Another point of interest is that this same Republican Party wonders why people are flocking to Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Dr. Carson. It is because they are not afraid to criticize the things that are destroying and damaging the country. The establishment refuses to criticize the things and the people that are inflicting great damage on this country and its future. Then they wonder why people are abandoning them and looking for outsiders, and that includes Sanders. 
  • Finally, just to drive the point home, it was reported that a neighbor of the San Bernardino shooting suspect saw what could be considered odd behavior and felt embarrassed to report it. It is this political climate that permitted that.

As I write this, out in San Bernardino there are many people dead and wounded. In those first 48 hours, no one in authority wanted to admit that what happened here is an act of terror. They tried their damnedest not to announce the motive. They were saying things like: “Well, you know, it’s very delicate here. We can’t really know for sure.” This, even though they had the name within three hours. Again they were saying: “Well, we’re going be very delicate, we don’t want to cause any backlash.” It was eye opening, educational, informative and illustrative to watch the pained efforts of many, primarily in the establishment, try to tell people this was not what we all knew it was.

There are people at war with us. Our leaders, repeating the mistakes of the past will not admit it. In fact, they are trying to make excuses for it. They are trying to convince us it is our fault. Our gun laws, our lifestyle, our wealth. The only thing we are guilty of is wanting to be free and pursue our destiny. The top four Republican challengers will not apologize for this. Neither should you. Do not fall for the propaganda that we have found the enemy and he is us.

Our enemy is not either the first or Second Amendment. Nor is it our belief in God and prayer, in spite of the recent Daily News headline. Our enemy is killing innocent people. Our enemy is not just out there; they are here.

The DACA Dilemma and the Trick of the Trickle-Down Theory

Here is our very own Sen. Charles Schumer on the Senate floor last week: “President Trump has stood in the way of a bipartisan solution to DACA, a problem he created in the first place, and yet the president is in this dream world. He thinks, ‘Oh, I can blame Democrats for the impasse.’ As I said, only in the 1984 world where up is down and black is white could this be true.

Cuomo’s Frivolous Lawsuits Cost Us Money

Since Donald Trump became president, New York State has filed more than 100 lawsuits against the federal government. This includes those filed by both Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. It does not include lawsuits filed by the City of New York. Most of them are political in nature, filed to please the plaintiffs’ voting base. In the real world, if we had filed ...

Beautiful, 'Clean' Coal

After completing his first full year in office—an alarming year, at that— Donald Trump has concluded that climate change is not a significant national threat and that the sacred lands and waters of this country should be sold to the highest bidder. 

The Trump administration has withdrawn from the Paris climate agreement; deregulated national landmarks; freed public lands for ...

Multigrain, Please

I have no craving for white bread; it’s too plain, predictable and tasteless for me. I hunger for a chunk of multigrain or rye, maybe even a good-sized piece of pumpernickel raisin, with a schmear of cream cheese on the side.

I have no appetite for bland, clean-cut, middle-of-the-road, isolationist politics. And I find unsettling the cultural sameness, gross consumerism and incurious ...

I Love 'I Hate Halet'

Let’s face it, folks. Not everyone loves Shakespeare. Not even all actors. Andrew Rally is one of them. In fact, where there’s a Will, there’s a way Andrew will find to avoid acting in one of those famously timeless plays. And for good reason. Shakespeare tests, to the fullest, an actor’s mettle, and Andrew is strictly a TV actor.

He has just ended a star turn in the ...

A Trip to the 'Liberry'

Raise your hand if you didn’t—did not—call the library the “liberry” when you were little. I’m guessing not a lot of hands just went up.

Didn’t just about all of us say “liberry” when we were learning to read? (Well, whaddya expect when a place is named something way too easy for little kids to mispronounce?)

OK. Now, raise your hand if ...

I Am Woman, Hair Me Roar

When you have short hair, it is inevitable that you will spend an inordinate amount of time growing your hair out and then getting fed up and cutting it again. I have been down this hair-brained road several dozen times before, complaining for months until I am convinced my husband is going to cut it all off while I sleep just so he doesn’t have to listen to me whine about it one more ...

I'm Mrs. Heat Miser

To be perfectly honest, I did not need a large rodent with insomnia to convince me that we had six more weeks of winter. It’s been so cold outside lately that when I go out, my nostrils stick together. The dog is so hesitant to go out that he does his business right on the deck, less than five feet from the door, and then gives me a look of contemptuous indignation when he comes back in the ...

Bazzo Needs to Get His Facts Straight

February 15, 2018

To the editor,

Once again Mr. Bazzo, in his Feb. 8, column cherry picks facts, ignores other facts, passes along lies and spins so fast to the right that it’s amazing he doesn’t drill himself into the earth.

Bazzo is correct—the economy is doing well, and we should give credit where credit is due. Thank you, President Obama for taking the economy from the brink of another ...
