One thing you never hear in an American household is, "Honey, hurry in here, the luge is about to start." Luge is a "sport" where two men push a sled and then just let gravity take over.
Last week, Atlanta was brought to a halt by two inches of snow. The South was so blanketed in white that presidential advisor Valerie Jarrett instructed Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate. I fully expect the filmmaker of "Snow White" to be jailed within the week.
Tuesday's State of the Union dress-down was another divisive, arrogant and partisan lecture by a failed president. I am glad four of the Supreme Court Justices stopped coming since Obama rudely attacked them.
With his poll numbers circling the drain, you will be happy to know that Obama is now "pivoting" his considerable community organizing talents to "economic equality." Equality? This from the "Executive Order President" who does not even believe in the equality of the three branches of government.
Thanks to political maneuvering by his predecessor, Democrat Jon Corzine, the governorship in New Jersey has immense power. And Christie is a guy you want to have on your side -- unless you are in a canoe.
After last week's look back, let's take a peek forward. Extrapolating from the events of 2013, I think some of these predictions are not unlikely.
It was the year of lies that finally revealed the true Obama. His ObamaCare sales pitch, "If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance, period" - a lie. Saying before the election that the Benghazi disaster was caused by a YouTube video - a lie. Claiming that the NSA is not collecting our Internet and phone records - a lie. And denying that the Obama administration's IRS was targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny - a lie.
It's an all-too-familiar story of government incompetence, waste and fraud. Virtually unreported until his sentencing, John Beale, the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) top paid employee and its global warming expert, got 30 years last week.
The very public execution of Comrade Jang Song Thaek, the uncle of North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un, reminds us of the brutal nature of dynastic power and what totalitarian Communist dictators do.
Like Obama, I got my colonoscopy when I turned 50. The President got his done as a "virtual colonoscopy" at Walter Reed Hospital, where they simulated a full colon exam without actually doing one. It was the same way the media simulated examining The Affordable Care Act when it passed in 2010.
When our government is not in charge of something, it inserts itself into the enterprise, as is the case with the FDA's recent attempt to halt the sale of 23andMe DNA tests. Our government looked around the value-added business of personal genetic diagnostics and decided one thing was missing: government did not have a say-so.
It has been an epic year for us op-ed humor writers. At this point in the year, I give thanks for those buffoons, reprobates, scalawags and scoundrels who made my job easier in 2013.
Sporting the most ironic name in NFL history, Miami Dolphin Richie Incognito purportedly bullying a fellow 320-pound lineman should give us pause for reflection. It's emblematic of the continued wussification of America.
ObamaCare has blown up so dramatically that al-Qaeda might try to take credit for it. Its so bad Obama's political team has floated the idea of re-naming it "BidenCare."
With all the mistakes made on domestic issues like the economy, ObamaCare, unleashing the IRS on political opponents, rampant regulations, deficit spending, etc., we forget Obama's disastrous foreign policy.
As ObamaCare apologists scramble the unprecedented commandeering of one-seventh of our economy lumbers on. Only central command-and-control, Democrat progressives could come up with a healthcare plan that is unworkable, yet mandatory.
In dysfunctional and ideologically driven Washington, it seems the only way to slow out-of-control spending is with the debt ceiling votes. Republicans control only one-half of one-third of the government. The only leverage they have in imposing some form of fiscal sanity is their debt ceiling votes.
We are over a week into the government shutdown; shouldn't we be looting Target for a flat screen TV by now? Why haven't you joined a marauding street gang? Two things have become apparent: how little we need most of government, and how spiteful public servants can be when they do not get their funding.
I am not the least bit concerned about the federal government shutdown. My worry is that it might open back up.
Obama continues to struggle selling his ObamaCare. Ranking Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) called it a "train wreck." ObamaCare is losing steam as the bleak reality of its implementation becomes clearer. The only thing currently less popular than ObamaCare is Obama
As Obama and Congress publicly debate what engraving style to use on the "Save the Date" card they will send to Syria's President Assad (fully telegraphing our unnecessary military action), Vladimir Putin chuckles.
The Obama regime only knows one way to wage war, and that is to run attack ads in Iowa destroying an opponent's character. Trying to wage war by invading a country over WMDs has pitted President Obama against his fiercest ideological opponent on the matter - candidate Obama.
Leftists have always controlled the media, particularly the movie industry.
Government agencies exist to perpetuate themselves. If you think government, which essentially involves the IRS taking $3.8 trillion a year from us and politicians redirecting it as they please, can stay unbiased in its decisions, then you are lawful prey.
Matt Damon, the most outspoken celebrity supporter of public schools and teachers' unions, is moving to Los Angeles. What makes this notable is that he has sought out and enrolled his four children in private schools.
