The New York Times says Hillary will win in 2016 because “she’s too big to fail”.

And, like Obama, they’ll be surprised how fast she shrinks after the election.

The main foe of abortion having greater acceptance are the people who fall in love with their children after the 10 week ultrasound.

I’m like super-confused now. Is it feminist or anti-feminist to portray women as delicate little flowers?

“Women should be in combat! But no clapping… that could scare them.”

I am busy on the final edits for my next novel. It will be a bit more light-hearted than Superego, though still not quite a comedy.

Remember: There’s an Audible version of Superego. Could listen for free with 30 day trial.

I assume I still get royalties even if you get it for free. I should probably look into that.

I’m really excited about how many people have enjoyed my first novel. Have other exciting stuff in the works I hope I can announce soon.

Maybe a way to market flu shots to college kids is to say they prevent viruses from committing microaggressions.

There isn’t someone reading this right now who hasn’t purchased a copy of Superego, right? That would make no sense whatsoever.

You have to admire the time Harry Reid argued that taxes are voluntary. It was very creative. He will be missed in the Senate.

My goal for the 2016 presidential election is to be as engaged as I was for the 1984 one (when I was five and only vaguely aware of it).

I think the reasonable thing to do would be to put Hillary Clinton in prison until she un-deletes her emails.

Finally watched John Wick. Pretty cool movie. Glad there’s going to be a sequel.

Only complaint: really indistinct dragon character. “Oh, that’s not Thug #3; that’s the guy who’s bested John Wick twice already.”

From John Wick, I’ve decided I’m going to practice the Center Axis Relock gun stance in case I need to kill a dozen people in close confines.

Liam Neeson from Taken is pretty much the standard for fathers these days, right?

When you’re asking the government to force someone to do something, you’ve become an oppressor. It doesn’t matter what your background is.

It’s quite fashionable to hatefully rail against perceived hate, but angry people filled righteousness never led to anything bad.

I find laws against bulletproof vests pretty funny. “The police need to be able to shoot you… for your own protection.”

So the guy who was Jacob in Lost also plays Lucifer in Supernatural season 5. That’s some weird type-casting.

Disney owns the muppets, too? If Disney ever decides to go evil, they can basically hold everything from our childhoods hostage.

I’m old enough to remember when the American left was liberal. Well, old enough to have read about it.

Science and religion are two separate things, and absolutely everyone practices both.

To support late term abortion but not infanticide makes no moral sense, as Gosnell obviously realized.

It’s a little bit disturbing how many people think the most pressing issue of the day is it’s too hard to kill tiny humans.

Why would anyone join Scientology anymore? Does anyone join a religion these days without first googling it?

The state will either protect religious freedom or end up imposing a religion. One or the other.

John Kerry said of defeating ISIS: “we have the capacity”, but “we’re not going to do it”.

I’ll be the first to note the irony in the fact that an episode of “It’s Ok to Be Smart” says something as colossally stupid as “the number 1 septillion is so big that it doesn’t make sense”.

New research by the Nielsen ratings company shows that people are now watching less TV and more streaming internet video.

And yet somehow Susan Rice isn’t warning that this will lead to an increase in terrorist attacks.

Astronomers now say that the galaxy we live in is actually 50% larger than originally thought.

Just waiting for some environmentalist to claim it’s due to expansion from galactic warming.

What’s the Real Origin of “OK”?

I found the answer bizarre, but then again, I can’t fathom how Cockney Rhyming Slang exists, either.

Coloradans reported seeing a “green fireball” soar across the sky before it burned out over the mountains.

Huh. Pretty good metaphor for an Obama-backed solar company.

If you actually revered the Hobbit trilogy, don’t watch this, it’s quite disrespectful.

If you resent what Peter Jackson’s inexcusable padding did to a good story, this is for you.
