Could it be time to throw a gate to the wind by Jim Fabiano

I don’t believe I’ve ever been so stressed out over something I never thought I would be stressed out about. My wife and I are getting ready to drive over to Portsmouth to listen to a potential Presidential candidate. We are fortunate to live near New Hampshire because all the candidates have to survive this state in order to keep their hopes of election alive. It took me minutes to get ready because my getting ready consists of a pair of jeans and a sweater. My wife, on the other hand, takes a bit more time.

Love according to a box of cereal by Jim Fabiano

They all started to laugh. I guess your supposed to do that at a party of friends and family. I told them how I always know when it’s time to open a new box of cereal for breakfast. My wife has the new bowl and I have what was left out of the old box. In other words, I get the cereal dust. They laughed because they couldn’t believe my wife could treat me like that. They also couldn’t believe I would let her treat me so poorly. After they finished their laugh I told them a story.

INF Treaty: A Wise Withdrawal by Ed Feulner

To hear some critics describe it, the U.S. withdrawal from the INF Treaty is a disaster in the making.

“Dangerous, destabilizing and potentially counterproductive,” in the words of John McLaughlin, deputy CIA director from 2000 to 2004. Pulling out will “cause new tensions with European allies,” The New York Times opines. Adds the Stimson Center’s Michael Krepon in Forbes: “A new arms competition now beckons.”

Anti-Semitic Travesty of Population Transfer

by Steven Shamrak

In 1922, the British encouraged Arab anti-Jewish riots and were quite eager to implement the transfer of Jews from Trans-Jordan, Hebron and other parts of the Palestinian Mandate, which was created for a future Jewish state, but rejected an idea, presented by a Zionist committee, of transferring Arabs to trans-Jordan.

Honor Pride and the NFL by Michael Moffitt

When the truth is spoken, we all understand. The disgraceful no-call cannot be reversed because of money.

Honor and Pride can always overcome money where there is a will to do so. At the moment there were opportunities to right the wrong. The owner of the Rams, the coach of the Rams, any one of the officials or the ever silent Godell could have said, “Let’s look at the video tape.” Whoever had done so would have been a hero. But there were no heroes.

Sociopathy and the Far Left. by R.P. BenDedek

I’ve been doing some study recently on Narcissistic Personality Disorder and it seems to me that many on the far left exhibit lots of the behavioral characteristics of this disorder.

If people on the far left are suffering from this disorder, then part of their behavior can be explained by the disorder’s root causes, which is to say that they have NO real SELF ESTEEM because of their upbringing and/or life circumstances.

The winter poltegeist that won’t go away by Jim Fabiano

I sat in middle of my cellar in front of the dark green dank smelling monster that just came back to life. It looked like an octopus with its copper colored appendages sticking out in all directions. One large coiled silver arm came out of the top of its body and extended itself through the wall leading to the outside of my house. The other pipes had gadgets on them that was supposed to control the monster’s heat from going into only certain parts of my house.
