Here are interesting articles from the past week that are worth a read (even if, on occasion, I do not agree with the author).
After spending a week at work, hearing about the liberalism being forced on their kids at school, having liberalism shoved in their face by their local newspaper and being harangued by TV shows portraying people like them as creeps, a lot of conservative men like to relax by watching sports. Sports is a place where politics shouldn’t even be on the agenda….but IT IS.
The fall came October 13, that election year, at the beginning of the second debate between Dukakis and Vice President George H.W. Bush. CNN’s Bernard Shaw famously came out of the gate asking how Dukakis would respond to a brutal assault on his wife: “Governor, if Kitty Dukakis were raped and murdered, would you favor an irrevocable death penalty for the killer?”
You’re deplorable. You’re irredeemable. With a wave of her limp, clammy hand, this sick old woman dismisses you from the company of those whose opinions have value, whose interests matter, who have any moral claim to participation in self-governance.

The Democratic Party’s worse nightmare happened when Donald Trump reached out to black Americans at a campaign rally in Wisconsin. Trump’s outreach was prefaced by challenging blacks to do an honest assessment of their return on investment after 50 years of voting Democrat.

The last thing Democrats want blacks to do is to ponder that very question, knowing that the answer is nothing.
Despite this unprecedented bombardment of mainstream abuse, Trump’s poll numbers keep rising and his chances of becoming President keep increasing. The reason, to me, is obvious: tens of millions of Americans just don’t agree with that withering verdict.They think Trump’s a fiery, flamboyant, super-rich, shoot-from-the-hip buccaneer on a mission to make America great again.
It’s time for all the cop bashers out there to learn the truth about police work. The short explanation is that while forensics and science play a large part in modern criminal investigations, being a police officer itself is not a science.

In the 1996 book “The Choice,” Bob Woodward reports that Hillary conducted séances to summon the spirits of Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Gandhi.
