It took a few years, but I finally watched the movie “The Kite Runner”. It now makes the cut as one of my favorite movie dramas. I highly recommend it.
The story, historical fiction, was thought-provoking, compelling and inspiring. It was also very disturbing, because it dealt with the repulsive, revolting reality of the rape of children by depraved sub-human scum.

Abraham Lincoln has long been my favorite president. I love his humble frontier upbringing. His self-taught erudition. His humility and humor. Above all, I love his evolution from apologist to abolitionist.
A big factor influencing that elevation was Lincoln’s relationship with former slave and fervent abolitionist Frederick Douglass.

I’d never heard of her before, and you probably haven’t either, but Sandra Bernhard (an actress, I hear) wants to be the one that does the thinking for the women who voted for Trump.
After all, says Bernhard, these Trump-voting women are not “able to think for themselves”, because they are “under the thumb of [their] husband[s].”
Thank goodness these women now have Bernhard to tell them who to vote for and what to believe.
If only Bernhard could think for her self.

I think Barack Obama’s vehement opposition to Netanyahu speaking before Congress had to leave a lot of people scratching their heads, wondering why such a big deal? Israel, is, after all, our close ally, right? The only democratic government in the Middle East, no?

After hearing Netanyahu’s speech
, I think it’s pretty obvious why Obama didn’t want America to hear him. Why not? Because Obama knew that Netanyahu would demolish his foolish foreign policy of Iranian appeasement.

When the topic of higher education comes up I often think of a little saying I heard years ago. I don’t know who wrote it, but it goes like this:
We all know what BS is.
MS is more of the same,
and PhD is piled higher and deeper!
If you don’t know what the acronyms stand for, maybe you didn’t go to college. If not, perhaps you should go. Then again — and I know that this sounds like heresy nowadays — maybe you don’t need to go to college.
Before reading this book I think I was like many Americans when it came to knowledge of Lincoln’s assassination. I knew Lincoln was shot in the head by John Wilkes Booth at Ford’s Theater while attending a play. I knew Wilkes was eventually apprehended and shot. Beyond these basic facts, I really didn’t know much.

For those of you wondering what Manchuria has to do with Barack Obama, no, this book is not trying to prove Obama isn’t from Kenya.

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again. The leftists (those folks that many misname as liberals or progressives) don’t have a clue about “fairness”.
What’s my evidence this time?
