    The IRS Email retention policy has been getting quite a lot of press lately. Why, you may ask? It’s very simple.  Apparently, they have a policy of only retaining emails for six months!  That’s right – six months.  Seems like a rather short time doesn’t it – especially in light of the fact that the […]

  • My Experience with the Veteran’s Administration

    The administrators are completely useless and the doctors are incapable of doing anything except the most rudimentary tasks. Getting an appointment to see a dentist to fix broken and falling out teeth takes six months or more. Emergency procedures are ineffective. In fact, one time when my friend had what appeared to be a minor stroke, he was taken to a private hospital at the request of his brother. The private hospital admitted him and then immediately tried to discharge him because of his Veteran's Administration status. His brother then again threatened everybody to keep the treatmet at the private hospital and even got the VA to approve payment to the private hospital. He was finally admitted and treated properly. I'm sure if he went to the VA emergency room that day, he would be dead.

  • Eugenics Again

    Yes, my dear friends and readers, liberal California was one of the first homes to the Eugenics movement. It was one of the first states to force sterilizations on women prisoners and it continued well into the 1960's. This is the same thinking and barbarism of the early 20th Century that led to Hitler's "natural selection" and "final solution." In fact, as I have pointed out in previous columns, the founder of Planned Parenthood and hero to the women's choice movement, Margaret Sanger was not arguing for women's rights at all when she began her crusade for birth control which later became abortion. Her goal was to eliminate the negro race and other "unfits" from the face of the Earth. And, she wasn't even careful or secretive about her position. She was rather open about it.

  • The Bad News Bears Today . . .

    A prime example is the original "Bad New Bears," which was recently ranked 27 in the best sports films of all time. As all of you know, this is a film about a little league baseball team in Los Angeles, California. The team is made up from a bunch of misfits. We used to call them nerds. I don't know if we are even allowed to say that now. However, the team consisted of more than just nerds. It was minority groups, JD's and even a girl pitcher (Tatum O'Neal). The team is so bad after their first two games that they consider disbanding it and quitting the league. Through some smart managerial decisions, they begin winning.

  • Easter Weekend at the Movies

    There appears to be a growing trend in theatrical releases in the United States of faith based film. In fact, since the beginning of the year, there have been no less than four major releases which fit this category. However, one of them was actually attacked vigorously by the faith based market, "Noah," for violating themes set forth in the biblical story of Noah and the Ark. This attack proved successful as the film collapsed after a strong opening weekend. The other three have over performed and may be opening the door for more faith based films in the future.

  • Obamacare – The Rite of Spring 2

    I analogized President Obama's desire for fundamental change with thoughts on the initiation of video tape replay in Major League Baseball. My argument was simple. America was rejecting fundamental change in the same manner that most fans didn't seem to want video tape replay. America likes their traditions. Fallible umpires are part of the game just like the First Amendment and the Second Amendment are part of the Constitution. Some things shouldn't change.

  • Harry Reid Has Lost His Mind

    So, now after this six month chain of events, Harry Reid has the gall to say a delay in the Senate by the GOP is what allowed Putin to annex Crimea. Does Reid really think anyone on the left or the right will buy into this malarky. He does not only sound completely unhinged, his rhetoric has reached the level of ridiculous.

  • Cadillac and American Exceptionalism

    Well, Mr. Maher, I disagree with your position. In fact, it appears that a large portion of Americans feel the same way. Of course, these are mostly Conservatives that still believe in the American Dream. To me, this commercial represents all that is good with America. It shows that American strive for excellence

    Ever since Sunday night, I’ve been hearing lots of talk about Matthew McConaughey’s Oscar speech.  In fact, at dinner on Monday night one of my friends thought it was the worst Oscar speech of the night and probably the worst in memory.  After the speech, Social Media ignited.  Conservative pundits praised it.  However, the liberals […]

  • Goodbye Piers Morgan, Goodbye

    Ultra Liberal Brit, Piers Morgan is being shown the door by CNN. And, I say good riddance. The man who replaced Larry King after a more than 20 year run barely lasted on CNN for three years. Frankly, I'm surprised it wasn't less.

    The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon is just another example of runaway production. Hopefully, it doesn't become another vehicle for the left as well.

    Mr. DeMartini
    Thank you for posting an article about Frank Cervone. My step-father is a wonderful man. He has always treated me as if I was his own flesh & blood, even when I didn’t want him to. My husband, our 2 kids & myself spent this past Christmas holiday with Frank & Mom. No matter how bad he felt, he was always making sure that we were enjoying ourselves. I have never heard him complain about how unfair this disease is or feel sorry for himself. He is always smiling and willing to help anyone that he can. Frank is a fighter & inspires awe in those who are lucky enough to be called his family & friends. The world will be a little darker, when we lose him.

    Thanks for putting Frank Cervone’s story out there for others to see. He and his wife are great people and so strong in the face of such adversity. They are truly a love story that should be told amid the MSA story. Its been our honor to know them. And he truly has always cared for his community. There are so many good things to say about them. Keep up the good work and thanks again.

    Frank,

    Enjoyed the conversation concerning Ira Schwartz’s “In My Opinion” article concerning Michele Bachmann . I wish you success in your career and if you really believe what you wrote in your replies to me then you are a rare breed. I have a brother-in-law who is “in the business” (one of his earler gigs was as assistant director and upi on the television show “NewsRadio”). My sister and he are still married (due to her determination) and have a beautiful family. He is a nice enough sort but lives in that socially incestual bubble of La La Land. I have met many of their friends and his co-workers and I have come to believe that they really have no clue what “Middle America” is and believe that everyone feels the same as they do. Actually I am not sure if they even care what anyone thinks unless it agrees with their narrow view. Anyway good luck!

    Frank, I meant upm not upi.

  6. Rob on November 14, 2011 at 5:15 am

    Frank,

    What are your thoughts on the John Dickerson (CBS News)e-mail concerning the non-questioning of Michele Bachmann during the debate? As I have said the media has done everything they can to marginilize her and the sheeple acquiesce.

    • Frank DeMartini on November 14, 2011 at 9:36 am

      I have not seen the email, but I feel that the lesser candidates are being ignored. I only wish they would ignore Mitt Romney too.

        So true.

    Hi Frank,
    I’m the Guardian’s LA correspondent and am doing a story about Hollywood conservatives and would like to include your take. When you can spare me a few minutes please call, 6468421202, or email. Thanks.

    Interesting compendium of campaign contribution or registration allegiances of “celebs”. Probably not fully representative though. The leanings of Hollywood’s glitterati ARE important because theirs is a free soapbox yet they lack competence to speak with authority from. Many of the right would stay out of the fray because they are less vain than vociferous but emptyheaded leftists. Yet others who are aware of the wholesale blackballing of non Progressives only want to continue to see work. Explain why a Gore Vidal or an Alec Baldwin, or Matt Damon –true America haters — are a shoe in for casting as a general or statesman or Marine, or why Hanoi Jane gets to play Nancy Reagan? There’s gotta be others with equally alluring dentition, or “glutes,” that can read their lines. Then there are the behind the scenes Producers & writers who don’t have quite the visibility. The Weinsteins and their minions who picks and then mold the radical plotlines that demonize free enterprise and responsible living. Unless we as citizens become our own Observers, readers, researchers and spokespeople we remain under the tyranny of their Almighty Opinions on National Policy.
