Now that everybody knows (cough, cough) the Los Angeles International Airport shooter was “anti-government,” it follows as night from day that a) he must have developed his political views from conspiracy websites and b) those sites are culpable, right?
President Barack Obama has no one to blame but himself. He was the one who campaigned in 2008 on hope and change. He was the one who deployed high-flying rhetoric to promise a new day in Washington politics.
It’s vital to look at the real meaning of Obamacare. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will create, as ordered, a complete list of approved treatments for every disease label under the sun. And everyone in the insurance plan will be forced to take what the doctor tells him to take.
Mentally unstable man in the military gains legal access to gun, goes on rampage. That’s the portrait. “Obvious nut job. But still, he was able to buy a gun.” Bottom line: Do whatever is necessary to grab guns from private citizens. Tighten laws. Step up psychiatric interventions across the land, to prevent shootings before they occur.

If you cross the street in Podunk, Anywhere, U.S.A., to buy an ice cream soda on a Tuesday afternoon in July, it knows. But this agency, with all its vast power and its dollars, can’t track one of its own.
Watergate eventually became the story of two young rookie reporters who exposed and took down a President. Try to think of another major story in your lifetime wherein the reporters themselves took center stage and, in the process, nearly eclipsed their own work.
I think, at the very least, YouTube should censor Brian Williams, Scott Pelley and Diane Sawyer. Well, wait a minute. Not censor, but put up a notice on all their videos: “It’s come to our attention that these three characters are as annoying as a bad case of fleas. Caution: Watch and listen at your own risk.”
Once upon a time, in medieval universities, new students enrolled in the trivium. It was the foundation curriculum. It was required. Its parts were: grammar, logic and rhetoric. Today, the subject matter of the trivium is not only downplayed. It has been shattered.
