Betrayal

April 12, 2014

[J.P.'s Moment of Common Sense. For a list of subscribing radio stations, click here.]

A Frenchman, an American, and a Brit are having a drink in a bar when the subject of savoir faire comes up. The American says, "I know what savoir faire is—that's when a man comes home early from work, catches his wife in bed with another man, and says, 'Oops, pardon me.'"

"You're close," says the Brit, "but a bit off. Savoir faire is when a man comes home early from work, catches his wife in bed with another man, and says, 'Oops, pardon me, please continue.'"

"Gentlemen!" objects the Frenchman, in high dudgeon... [read the rest]

The water under Noah's Ark

March 28, 2014

This weekend, Director Darren Aronofsky's version of Noah's Ark will be in movie theatres. According to people invited to early screenings, the story in the movie doesn't much resemble the Biblical version. Believe it or not, Hollywood managed to make a movie about Noah without once using the word "God" in the dialogue. Instead of being about morality, judgment, and God's mercy, the movie is about over-population and environmental degradation.

If there is one thing we've learned about liberals over the last few years, there is nothing they cannot blame on climate change... [read the rest]

Breaking compacts

March 16, 2014

[J.P.'s Moment of Common Sense. For a list of subscribing radio stations, click here.]

Something is wrong with America, we all know it, and there is no shortage of opinion about what that something might be—analysts of every stripe, in every medium, are paid good money to regale us with diagnoses and solutions, and they do so twenty four hours a day (if anybody should happen to want that much regaling).

I can tell you what's wrong with America in just two words: broken compacts... [read the rest]

John Kerry and Global Warming consensus

February 22, 2014

[J.P.'s Moment of Common Sense. For a list of subscribing radio stations, click here.]

Venezuela is in the middle of a revolution, in case you haven't heard. Like communist leaders usually do, the president reacted to citizen complaints by throwing the leader of the opposition party into prison which, so far, is just making Venezuelans angrier.

Ukraine is having a revolution, too—Kiev is actually burning... [read the rest]

Big fat liars

February 1, 2014

[J.P.'s Moment of Common Sense. For a list of subscribing radio stations, click here.]

Everybody thinks the greatest fiction writers in the world are Russian novelists. It's not true. The greatest fiction writers in the world are Democrat politicians. Every once in a while it's fun to review the Big Fat Liars of the donkey party, so here we go:

Last week, the artfully crafted life story of Wendy Davis, Democrat candidate for governor of Texas, turned out to be make-believe... [read the rest]

Watching Lone Survivor with a WWII infantryman

January 24, 2014

Yesterday, I took my 94-year-old World War II veteran father to see Lone Survivor, the current big hit at America's movie theatres. I thought it would be interesting to give an old infantryman from a bygone era a glimpse of modern warfare and watch his reaction.

I wasn't sure what he'd say when I asked him to go. Dad doesn't see too well out of the one eye that still sees anything at all and he doesn't hear too well either. Like I keep telling him, he's more than halfway to being Helen Keller. But when I asked, he was game. I think I know why... [read the rest]

Attrition of joy

January 18, 2014

[J.P.'s Moment of Common Sense. For list of subscribing radio stations, click here.]

Gallup took a poll last week asking Americans this question: "What do you think is the most important problem facing the country today?" As in previous polls, the biggest problem people see is the government.

Not unemployment, not Muslim terrorists, not health care—the friggin' government.

The poll offers a simple message for Washington if they were only willing to hear it... [read the rest]

The Barack Obama work ethic

January 11, 2014

[J.P.'s Moment of Common Sense. For list of subscribing radio stations, click here.]

Last Saturday during his weekly radio broadcast, while recreating in Hawaii during a seventeen-day multimillion-dollar taxpayer-funded vacation, President Obama blasted Republicans for leaving Washington during the Christmas holiday. He said they left work undone.

Talk about chutzpah!

There's nothing good that anyone can say about Republican or any other kind of congresscritter, but Barack Obama questioning other Washington politicians' work ethic is like a duck calling a goose fowl. Never mind the absurdity of being in Hawaii while accusing other people of taking a vacation, the timing was peculiar for another reason... [read the rest]

You get what you pay for

January 4, 2014

[J.P.'s Moment of Common Sense. For list of subscribing radio stations, click here.]

Now that we're into 2014 and staring at the abyss—huge government deficits, a health care system ruined by Obamacare, cities and states staring at bankruptcy, and petty tyrants manning the controls of government agencies—there is one proverb with the wisdom to save us from doom:

You get what you pay for... [read the rest]

The Butler didn't do it

December 15, 2013

Two developments since I wrote about The Butler four months ago. Number one, the movie in general and Oprah Winfrey in particular are not collecting awards like they expected. Golden Globes nominations are out now and Oprah was completey snubbed, as was the director, the screenplay, and Forest Whitaker for the lead role. So much for Oprah trying to drum up sympathy and publicity with that phony racial incident in Switzerland.

Number two, four days after my column was published, an opinion piece by four historians was published in the Washington Post... [read followup]
