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.

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

Democrats Are Coming After Your Money

Understand what it will mean if you elect Democrats in November. When the tax reform bill passed in February, not one Democrat voted for it. In fact, during the discussions leading up to the vote, they lied and said your taxes will go up and only the rich will benefit. I wrote back then about the fallacy of their argument and I was right.

As a whole, Democrats and more and more of ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Seen Any Good Ol’ Movies Lately?

As I become more, uh, mature, I find myself enjoying older movies more than newer movies. The trio of films presented here for your consideration are three of my all-time favorites. They share great stories, great screenplays, great directing, great acting. They also have in common ratings in the 90s on Rotten Tomatoes, and a place of distinction in the National Film Registry, a highly selective ...

Privacy? LOL!

Let’s listen in on what they’re saying right now about how Facebook fans are shocked—shocked!—that their privacy has been compromised, prompting them to rise up and exhort oppressed social media users everywhere to ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...

Tipping the Scales in My Favor

As I was settling into bed one night, I happened to catch my husband out of the corner of my eye.

He was getting on the scale.

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” I yelled at him. He jerked his head around and looked at me with alarm.

“What? I’m weighing myself.”

I jumped out of bed and yanked him off the scale. 

“You can’t do that now!” I ...

Doing Time in the Big House

“So, what did the doctor say about Dad?” I asked my mom over the phone.

“He has an incarcerated hernia,” she replied.

“INCARCERATED hernia?” I repeated.

“Yes.”

“Why is it incarcerated? Did it rob a bank?”

“What? No.”

“Unlawful entry? Obstruction? Insider trading?” I ...
