Traffic Light Liberal

Last week I found myself sitting at a red light behind a Fiat. The bumper stickers affixed to it left no doubt who was behind the wheel of a vehicle that could fail at any moment. “Feel the Bern.”  A caricature profile of President Trump with the caption “Stop bigotry.” Lastly, a “I support Planned Parenthood.”  All boiler plate commie lib crap, except my first thought about the Planned Parenthood sticker was “Hmmm, if your mother followed through with that bunch’s raisin d’etre, I wouldn’t be sitting behind you at this light exposed to your idiocy.” So I did something I’ve never done before. I whipped out my iPhone and snapped a picture for inspiration to write this column. Well, the little progressive spun his head almost 180 degrees to look at me. For some reason, him doing so reminded me of Linda Blair’s head spinning trick in The Exorcist. Now I could have smiled and given him the thumbs to have him believe I was on his side, but it is the politicians he votes for who are good at pretending to be something they are not, so I was honest and let him know what I thought by giving him my best stupid face. He didn’t like that, because every time I tried to pass him after the light turned green, he cut me off. When I...

Is Your Dog a Democrat?

I recently saw a bumper sticker that read “My dog is a Democrat.”  My immediate thought to myself was of course your dog is a democrat!  As the Democrat master, it is dependent on you for everything: food, water, shelter.  You pay all of its medical bills.  Maybe you even give it your table scraps! No matter how much you and give – it doesn’t matter, because your dog will always want more!  Even so, your dog will remain loyal to you. Now to play devil’s advocate, a cat is probably a Republican. Sure, you can do everything for it as you would a dog, but when it comes down to it, the cat really doesn’t care what you do for it.  Fluffy doesn’t give a rat about your Democrat ass, and would get along just fine without you. It will rub up against either a table leg or yours and to kitty it doesn’t matter which. Without you, meow meow will kill mice, birds or whatever and survive quite nicely thank you very much. The Democrat elite at the head of their sphere of entrapment aren’t interested in solving any societal ills. They’ve figured out if they can increase the number of those dependent on them by doling out a meager subsistence confiscated from those who earn a living for themselves, then they can have an ever increasing number of reliable voters...

How Your First Paycheck Can Lower Our Taxes

I work for a private school. Over the summer the school encourages the upcoming senior class to find jobs in the hopes that they obtain some real-world work experience. On Friday, they received their first paychecks. All of them were similarly dismayed to learn that their take home pay was not what they thought it was going to be! Some of the comments I heard – “How can anyone live on that?” “I’m better off working under the table in construction like I did last summer!” Their reaction to their first paycheck mirrored my own about 30 years ago. I’m sure all of you reading this have probably felt the same way. This got me thinking about our current state of taxation and why we are not collectively outraged by all of the taxes we are forced to pay on many levels. Is it because our employers deduct it from our paychecks and we never handle it? Could it be April 15th is a long way from November? Maybe others are comforted that their elected officials promise to sock it to those who are more well off than they. Since it has long been established that the only two certainties in life are death and taxes, it can be ascertained that there is universal agreement for the need to be taxed. The debate, then, is centered on whether it...
