As if you’re not tired of hearing about Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty’s current difficulties, here I go again. But first, let’s put the whole freedom of speech issue to bed. Like every American, Robertson does have the right to express his views, whether we agree with them or not. However, he must now live […]

It’s the simplest and oldest military tactic in the world and it works. If you have 100 potential enemies and you can divide them into two separate groups, then pit them against each other, you can stand aside and allow them to duke it out, then sweep in and mop up the battered survivors who […]

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. That being said, we sure have a bunch of total wackos in Washington. Here we go again with talk of shutting down the government, sequesters, and all kinds of nonsense between the House and Senate because they can’t work […]

As most of you know, when it comes to politicians, I’m an equal opportunity kind of guy. I don’t like any of them, Republican or Democrat. You can take a pile of dog doo doo and wrap it in any kind of cover you want, but inside it’s still crap, and sooner or later (usually […]

I upset a few people in my April 1st blog, It’s Time To Take Back Our Border, when I referred to Mexico as a “cesspool teeming with disease and vermin.” In the spirit of detente, can we agree that while most of Mexico is a good place, filled with good people, most of the Mexican […]

These days it seems like we can’t debate any issue without being labeled radical by those who oppose it, and no idea can stand on its merits alone, because we have to label it a Democratic or Republican ploy, or a Liberal or Conservative cause. It doesn’t matter if something is good for the country […]

Bad Nick is the alter ego of Nick Russell, the relatively mild mannered publisher of the Gypsy Journal RV travel newspaper and the author of a half dozen or so travel books. Before that, he spent his career publishing small town newspapers, and loved stepping on the toes of the local politicians who got caught […]
