Trump, Sanders, and Political Humor

After yesterday’s ponderous and detailed discussion of tax compliance, it’s time for some levity. So let’s have some fun with Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. And we’ll start with the crazy Senator from Vermont. I’m surprised that I haven’t seen more Sanders-specific humor. I’m probably missing some examples, but a quick look through my archives […]

Hoisting Socialists on their Own Petard

Like communism, Nazism, and other forms of statism, socialism is an evil ideology that is based on the notion that human freedom should be suppressed and restricted.

In 2011, Larry the Cable Guy read a politically correct version of the night-before-Christmas story. This year, we have Ted Cruz’s rendition of the night-before-Christmas story. Needless to say, I especially enjoy the […]

Good News and Good Laughs for Supporters of the Second Amendment

I almost feel sorry for the gun-control crowd. They keep trying to convince themselves that people are on their side, but schemes to restrict the 2nd Amendment keep getting defeated on Capitol Hill. And when a handful of state governments go against the trend and try to trample on constitutional rights to gun ownership, politicians […]
