  When I think of cops in Texas, I think of no-nonsense, 'get the job done' law enforcers who don't play the social justice game while in the performance of their duties. I need to re-calibrate my s...

Across the country, erasing history has become a movement, especially with educational institutions, an attempt to suppress the damning nature of the Democrat party.  Yale University recently announce...

Education may be one of the last places federalism lives. In other words, educating our children is mix of federal, state, and local responsibility. In addition, both private and public institutions p...

Months ago, Twentieth Century Fox teased the first look at Logan with Johnny Cash’s cover of “Hurt,” and it set movie fans on fire by how different that music choice was from the choral music that nor...

Audi ran a commercial during the Super Bowl that touted itself as being about “equal pay” for women. It’s difficult to figure out how that ties into selling vehicles but, whatever. Nevertheless, since...

UPDATE (Feb. 7, 2017): Added full-size photo of the Redskins cheerleaders with the Special Forces soldiers in Afghanistan to the bottom of the post. Men like gorgeous women and women like tough men. ...

I'm borderline Peter Venkman on this - dogs and cats showing together? Mass hysteria or simply a headscratcher? Why would the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show break from 140 years of tradition and fea...

There isn’t a shortage of people who like to tweet about so-called precious snowflakes and how they crumble into non-functionality as soon as the slightest of difficulties come their way. Yet when pus...

One of my pet peeves is that words actually have meanings and people tend to misuse them all the time. The Progressive Left is the master of this, actually changing the meaning of words to fit their n...

The ratings are right. Celebrity Apprentice isn't that great this year. Perhaps Trump is correct in his assessment - Arnold sucks as this year's host, or perhaps this reality-show concept has simply r...

Hasty overreacting is human trait that has been around since, well, the dawn of humans. Take a look at The Book of Genesis, where that sneaky serpent told Eve “God just doesn’t want you to eat that f...

Like it or not, in the age of feminist social conditioning, this discussion is most likely coming to America. Girls need a cute name for their vagina. Not the crass or clinical terms. Boys have clever...

No form of entertainment is more personal than your taste in music. It’s as unique as a fingerprint and tells an interested observer more about you than the much-vaunted Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (I...

"But, but we lost an election and the government is doing things I don't agree with!" I just adore the far Progressive Left.  Donald Trump was elected President of the United States with a convincing...

The Hollywood Reporter broke a Jan. 25 story which said that Michael Bay will produce an anti-Trump movie that also portrays China in a positive light. This is interesting news because it provides a p...

For some reason, I assume it was the impending March for Life or to support the Women's March (also known as The March Because Social Justice Warriors Hate Donald Trump, it had very little to do with ...

Just when I think it might be possible to rescind my call for Xanax in the national water supply, something else happens. Now it's hyped up outrage over an Executive Order signed by President Trump to...

Well, actually there's two. The first is what I will call Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS). This syndrome has affected a segment of the movement formerly known as Never Trump and virtually everyone th...

If you read my writing, follow me on social media or listen The Loftus Party the podcast I am on, you have heard me say I am really too tired to get outraged very often. I prefer to point and laugh an...

Torture is back in the news with media reporting that the Trump administration created a draft executive order that discussed reviewing intelligence practices, including so-called torture. And while t...

Following the Inauguration of President Donald J. Trump, I want to give Progressives and dejected Democrats something to hold on to. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and they can live in the ...

I saw Star Trek Beyond last weekend. My history with the Star Trek franchise isn’t unusual for someone my age (ahem): I had watched every one of the original series episodes at least a dozen times on ...

They say you never really care about an issue until it effects you directly, and, yes, I think that’s true sometimes. For example, the First Lady’s “Let’s Move” healthy food program wasn’t even on my ...

Yesterday morning there was much rejoicing. In a late night vote, the Senate passed a budget resolution that ordered the beginning of the process to repeal Obamacare. In other words, the Republican Se...
