Malice in Wonderland (1980). This is another great Scottish band. I saw Nazareth in concert (twice) many years ago. I own several of the band's albums. Here is the Wikipedia page for the band. Continue reading

Nicholas Kristof is starting to grasp the totalitarian nature of progressivism. Progressives are goal-driven, not process-oriented. They want power over others so as to impose progressive views and values (egalitarianism, cosmopolitanism, atheism, pacifism) on society. Nothing matters to them except... Continue reading

To the Editor: Re “Explaining Hillary Clinton’s Lost Ground in the Polls” (The Upshot, nytimes.com, May 25): Hillary Clinton can easily make this lost ground up and gain much more by winning Bernie Sanders’s impassioned young supporters in one smart... Continue reading

My support for Donald Trump is easy to understand. I am sick to death of Republicans standing idly by while Democrats destroy them. Think back to the way John McCain and Mitt Romney campaigned in 2008 and 2012 (respectively). Neither... Continue reading
