Dispatches from Wolf Country–What’s with these people?

Dispatches from Wolf Country–What’s with these people?

We are in uncharted territory, in the land of shiny objects. Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. — Martin Luther King Without Chelsea Manning, Julian Assange is just another fringe actor who resents what he sees as American hegemonic hubris. — P.J. Crowley, Assistant Secretary of State, 2009 -2011 […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Old Men Yelling at Clouds

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Old Men Yelling at Clouds

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Old Men Yelling at Clouds The process of election affords a moral certainty, that the office of President will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications. Talents for low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity, may […]

The “Contra-Constitutional” Democrat Party

The “Contra-Constitutional” Democrat Party

The new name for the Democrat Party should rightly be the CONTRA-CONSTITUTIONAL PARTY. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, contra means, in opposition or contrast to, which is a perfect description of the modern day Democrat Party’s opposition to the U.S. Constitution. It can no longer be thought of as the party of John F. Kennedy […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Merry Christmas Wondering about another one

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Merry Christmas Wondering about another one

Makes iron-arsed old Irish guys from upstate  like me tear up Frenetic activity and absurd levels of impossible expectation The Bits of Sadness, Madness and Joy Remain As an Irish-American Non-believing and Non-believing Catholic, I have had a changing relationship with Christmas. I suppose it was baby-boomer child prosperity that caused us all to have […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Robert E. Lee and Roy Moore

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Robert E. Lee and Roy Moore

 Let them ask What would Lee do? Kind of a dicey relationship with politics Don’t treat Alabama folks like they’re stupid! “Wondering what it’s coming to and how it got this far”–Guy Clark, Texas 1947   We’re here of course because Alabama has had kind of a dicey relationship with politics in recent decades. Luther […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Fifth Monarchy Man

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Fifth Monarchy Man

What force or guile could not subdue  Thro’ many warlike ages,  Is wrought now by a coward few  For hireling traitor’s wages.  The English steel we could disdain,  Secure in valour’s station.  But English gold has been our bane:  Sic a parcel of rogues in a nation!  But, pith and power, till my last hour,  […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country–Maya Angelou and Morning Joe

Dispatches from Wolf Country–Maya Angelou and Morning Joe

Word Press asked, “What’s on your mind” this Black Friday morning?Two things, really: The wealth of premier league Rugby this weekend; and, oddly enough, the intersection between someone who probably have should been nominated as Poet Laureate and a recovering Republican Congressman who’s marrying a blonde, Democratic policy wonk — Maya Angelou and Joe Scarborough. […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Trump, like a kidney stone, will Pass

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Trump, like a kidney stone, will Pass

Anybody else got gallows humor thought about that coffee cup? We always figured that the presidents — from Washington to Obama — had a pretty good idea of what they were supposed to be doing and would try to do it. This guy? Not so much. No unifying theme except his ego, insecurity, greed, and pathological […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Tax Increases for the Middle Class

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Tax Increases for the Middle Class

Reagan, his sane advisers  and possibly Nancy’s astrologer became concerned… Rising tide might lift all boats, but not all boats rise at the same rate I remember waiting for my wife to get out of work on a wet, rainy evening in 1982, sitting in my VW Sirocco in a spring rain at Fort Huachuca, […]

The NFL Players Association vs. America and American Values Part II

The NFL Players Association vs. America and American Values Part II

We covered a lot of ground in Part I that addressed the NFL football players denigrating the American flag, disrespecting the National Anthem, and throwing mud in the face of the first responders who protect the American citizens from mayhem, crime, and anarchy – the police and law enforcement officers across the country. I called […]

The NFL Players Association vs. America and American Values Part I

The NFL Players Association vs. America and American Values Part I

The current spectacle of the NFL football players denigrating the American flag, disrespecting the National Anthem, and throwing mud in the face of the first responders who protect the American citizens from mayhem, crime, and anarchy – the police and law enforcement officers across the country, is despicable and anti-American. Additionally, such behavior is tantamount […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Old Age Should Rage

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Old Age Should Rage

April may be the cruelest month, but this October has been an absolute nightmare, and I see no reason to hope it’s going to get better. The south continues to be targeted by a succession of hurricanes, and the Republicans are now planning a succession of attempts to lower taxes on the rich. Since Houston, […]

Liar, Liar, pants on fire!

Liar, Liar, pants on fire!

The definition of integrity is doing the right thing when no one is looking. How do you apply an appropriate term to an individual who tells a blatant lie in front of 330 million people, and then tries to excuse his falsehood with even more lies? Has the American public grown so use to the […]

A Culture of Authoritarianism = A Society of Totalitarianism

A Culture of Authoritarianism = A Society of Totalitarianism

    The impact of the 21st Century in its short phylogenesis has produced a pseudonymous willingness to accept the most threatening viewpoints and behavior yet seen on the planet.

Why Left Wing Nuts Get Away with Murder

Why Left Wing Nuts Get Away with Murder

“Once Upon A Time, In a Galaxy Far, Far Away” the left wing of the political spectrum were the vanguard of opposing the globalist warfare matrix. The anti-war movement changed the world in the 1960’s and stopped the bloody carnage in Viet Nam. Judging by today’s standards, that world is forgotten and the replacement culture […]

A World Doomed in a Never Ending War

A World Doomed in a Never Ending War

Are you disappointed with Donald Trump’s bellicose continuing with the deployment in Afghanistan? Well, if you are not; you should be. Predicting a non-ideological President, who prides himself on making pragmatic decisions, raises prognostication to a new level of mystical proportions. Instilling hope during an election campaign seldom translates into dynamic action on every pledge […]

BOZO’s – Our elected legislators

BOZO’s – Our elected legislators

There comes a time, usually proceeding an election, when we stop to think about those who will promise us anything in exchange for our vote. We all know the folks I am referring to . . . yup, it’s the same individual running for office that if elected will spend nearly all of his/her time, […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Not a Christian, bruv

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Not a Christian, bruv

  Did he bring the family? What’s the Mother’s name.Mary, oh, I’m so nervous! I read the book today, Mary Hail, Hail Mary. Lenny Bruce, 1967 The problem with people who bring religion to their politics is that they’re obsessed with sex. It’s never “I’m a devout Anglican, therefore I couldn’t possibly vote for a […]
