Mr. Rosebrock

Isn’t it stunning that more than 100  military Veterans have died while awaiting care at the Los Angeles VA (http://freebeacon.com/issues/oig-report-100-veterans-died-waiting-care-los-angeles-va/). Don’t take my word, Carefully read the Dept. of Veterans Affairs’ report from the Office of the Inspector General. The story below happened a few years ago. The huge backlog at the Los Angeles VA doctor’s waiting room was taking its toll. … Read More

Six years ago, a teenager in Newton, MA, Shiri Pagliuso, asked her father if it was true that Israel tortures and murders women activists in the Palestinian resistance movement. Then a high school freshman, Shiri had learned the information from her textbook — the Arab World Studies Notebook, a 540-page volume so riddled with unabashed bias that it had garnered a scathing 30-page report from the American Jewish Committee. Back in … Read More

Dateline Dayton — Are we returning to the Wild West?  Gun violence is out of hand.  In the Wild West, at least judging by Westerns from my childhood, it was Good Guys vs. Bad Guys. Now many innocent bystanders are being shot. They are in the wrong place at the wrong time even if it is in their own rom … Read More

Lesser Wesson Lesson

Ari L. NoonanOP-EDLeave a Comment

Mr. Wesson

Like mainstream Democrats, Herbie Wesson prefers oratorical chaos to order. He was sailing along in his thank-you speech for being re-elected president of the Los Angeles City Council the other day when he suddenly decided to stick a sharp needle in his eye. In a lunging quest for attention from extremists in the midst of his welfare-laden agenda, he dropped … Read More

It had been some time since my previous one.  Occasional chest pain has become more prevalent.  Dr. Brad thought it might be a good idea. He said it will probably show nothing.  I told … Read More
