Almost all Americans are familiar with the fact that we once fought a Civil War, but not all that many of them realize that the War Between The States was not about slavery. Slavery was the buzzword, but the real issue was states’ rights. Did the federal government have the right to determine if a […]

Humorist Will Rogers used to say that he didn’t have to make up his material, because he found plenty to talk about just by reading the newspaper. I agree, because every time I open a newspaper or read the different internet news pages, I find something that makes me ask “What the hell is that […]

Here’s an good idea. Let’s say that a huge company creates a natural disaster on a scope that is hard to imagine, and that will cost billions of dollars to remedy. Okay, now let’s say that instead of making those responsible for the disaster pay to make things right, the government expects you and I […]

Don’t you just hate it when you open your mouth to make a point, and instead wind up biting yourself right in the butt? I wonder if some folks in Los Angeles were feeling that way this week. The do gooders in the land of quakes and flakes are calling Arizona’s new law that authorizes […]

At the risk of offending a lot of Second Amendment supporters, I think Arizona’s new law allowing any U.S. citizen age 21 or older, who is not a convicted felon or otherwise prohibited from owning a gun, to carry a concealed handgun is a mistake. For years Arizona has had a concealed carry law that […]

I had a boss once that had a sign in his office that said “Never try to teach a pig to sing. It’s a waste of time, and it irritates the pig.” Maybe I need to remember that and stop beating my head against the brick wall. But sometimes I just can’t help myself. Ignorance […]

The absolutely stupid antics of the criminal element among us gives me so much fodder for the Dumb A$$ Report that I’ll never run out of material. Here are a few that had me shaking my head and wondering how much chlorine it would take to clean up the gene pool: In Lincoln, Nebraska, a […]

Opponents of Arizona’s tough new law directed at illegal aliens claim that the bill is racist and will give police the right to harass every Hispanic person they encounter. What they refuse to admit is that much of our country is becoming a war zone, and a lot of the violence is being caused by […]
