About The Author

  • GoodMojo

    According to “CelebrityNetWorth.com”, Ed’s worth about $1.5 million.  That’s a lot of money to someone with less.  You know who I mean, “the less fortunate”.  If only lefties could be forced to confront their own hypocrisy…  Scratch that.  Even that would require a personal integrity anathematic to leftists and leftism.

    Pundits Pin Blame For Murderer Jovan Belcher On Everything But Him

    Gun control will never work, because self-control is what’s required.

    Do these pundits understand that even though murder is against the law, people still find reasons and ways to commit it?  Are they really so obtuse?  Of course they are.  Even the author of  this linked article (which is otherwise quite good) is trying to use this guy’s number of guns as evidence of his predisposition for violence.  I am a gun owner, and I know a lot more.  Not one of us has ever shot or killed anyone.

    Would the author, or anyone else for that matter, feel better if Jovan Belcher had choked his woman to death, then jumped off  bridge?

    GOP Calls for Benghazi Select Committee

    The GOP is now, as the Jamaicans sometimes say, “a dog with no teeth”. Like Bob says:  “Next!”

    How do Right-wing parties attract immigrant voters?

    I agree with Igor, on this 100%!  As a reminder to some, I would also reference Nashville  (though now nationally syndicated) talk radio host Phil Valentine’s “Demagnetize America” campaign.

    Well, no.  There’s still a LOT (read: majority) of cars on the road piloted by the Mark I human brain and the Mark I human eyeball.  That won’t change for some time!

    No it’s not – if you’re LEGAL, it’s a no-brainer.  If you are ILLEGAL, don’t waste your time trying.

    We’re accelerating down the slippery slope to Hell, aren’t we?!  Sheesh!

    Romney lost because conservatives didn’t trust him to not be Obama-lite, while Republican hacks expected independents to trust Romney as better slightly than Obama. Romney couldn’t even run a Hope and Change Hustle like Obama. Obamacare = Romneycare. Obama foreign policy = Romney’s Obama’s rich cronies = Romney’s rich cronies. Obama crony corruption = Romney crony corruption. A larger majority than that of the Obama vote total didn’t trust Romney to be significantly different from Obama.. Better the devil you know.

    A man murders his mother-in-law. Is the knife to blame; the seller of the knife; his mother-in-laws mouth; his wife listening to the hag; his parents for failing to teach morality correctly; the crumbs his wife dropped in his bed the night before; the weather; global warming?
