END is NEAR for WHOM?

NoKo’s ‘Rocket Man’ is on a Suicide Mission

By Harry M. Covert

With a strong degree of certainty, I can assure the faithful and newspaper editors across the land that there is no need for 120 point bold headline type along the lines “The World Ends.”

A fellow who has proclaimed himself as a Christian numerologist has gotten his fifteen minutes of idiocy recently by noting the end for planet earth is Saturday. That date is September 23. I’m cynical and a skeptic.

That may well be the day though for North Korea if Kim Jong Un pulls off another missile launch.… Read More

Matters of ‘Over Sensitivity’!


By Harry M. Covert

It is difficult in these days of fragile feelings to find some humor and laughter. Maybe time is ripe to back off from wearing our feelings on sleeves.

Most of us have to learn to endure name-calling or insidious comments about nicknames, school mascots or off-the-cuff comments that start out to be witty but somehow end up hurtful.

A high court judge in my hometown, who happened to be a Sunday school teacher, told this story of an army sergeant named Robert Wolfguts who sought a name change.… Read More

TIME FOR HAND WRINGING IS OVER

End Game Coming When Tweets Don’t Work

By Harry M. Covert
All the “message sending” bombarding North Korea appear delaying the  inevitable.  From all the threats of nuclear attempts, escalating missiles and tail wagging the “big dog” apparently there are no tweets reaching Pyongyang.

Quite naturally no one wants war, military intervention or destruction of the rogue regime. But that time is approaching.  And rapidly.
Evidence is mounting by the moment that the United States once again will have to solve the situation. Young Americans are on duty and ready to take the call. It probably won’t pretty.

President Trump gives the word Sunday

The question for all is how long is the free world supposed to suffer waiting for the bombs to fall on free people?… Read More

COLORS OF HORSES…WHITE and GRAY

Traveler VII, USC’s purebred Andalusion horse (left) and Robert E. Lee’s Traveller, American bred gray mount.

 

 

By Harry M. Covert

I’m on my high horse today. I’m also astounded at the continuing display of stupidity, ignorance and total dysfunctional conduct enduring throughout the land. There seems no way to describe the silliness, seriousness and triviality in any other way than growing evil at the seams.
Despite the desolation so prominent, there comes the story out of the left coast where the purebred Andalusian horse, Traveler VII, is under attack. This magnificent animal is in his 11th year as mascot of the University of Southern California (USC) and runs up and down during the Trojans football games.… Read More

THE COMING SILENT MAJORITY AWAKENING

Houston assisted living waiting rescue in deep waters.

By Harry M. Covert
I’ve given lots of thought to the ongoing pusillanimous barrage to rename everything from history. Thugs on the streets across the country, a bunch wearing black masks and clothes have literally gotten out of hand. And, if my guess amounts to anything, average people across the land are going to have their bellies full soon and the mindless so-called protesters will have their comeuppance.

While most good citizens are lifting prayers to the Almighty and government at all levels are helping with the weather tragedy in Texas, the anti-fascists have gotten completely out of hand.… Read More

MOB VIOLENCE NOW IN VOGUE

The American society is undergoing a stark change in ideas.

I reiterate comments in a previous column, personal hating and animus toward others of any sort is obscene and w-r-o-n-g. That’s not hard to say or think. Honestly I don’t know of any school classroom that teaches or instructs hatred. Maybe there are but not in all of my days have I found such academic foolishness.

The Charlottesville rioting has been all the rage as it should be. Tragic and for no reason with the exception of ignorance and hostility. No genius is required to know what happened in Thomas Jefferson’s town.

THE GUISE of PEACEABLE ASSEMBLY


The Unbelievable Car Killing, Injuries

It was unbelievable to see the fighting explode with fisticuffs, tear gas, then become more horrible when a 20 year old Ohio man drove his car into the downtown crowd killing an innocent local paralegal and injuring 39 others.

By Harry M. Covert

There are plenty of words in the English language to express and condemn the odious events of the past weekend in Charlottesville. All are appropriate for the unpeaceable assembly where haters had their day.

The ghastly would-be protestors placed scars that will be difficult to erase for years to come. People of good will have their work cut out for them.… Read More

CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST EXAMINES ‘UNHINGED’

‘Malfeasance of the Left and the Swamp’

By Bruce Atkinson, Phd.

Did anyone realize the onslaught that a Democratic loss would bring? Did anyone predict just how juvenile and inane the Democratic base would be? Did anyone understand the petulance and nastiness Democratic officials would display? Did anyone predict how hyperbolic and crazy the leftist media would become?

It is disconcerting how many have become so unhinged over the past years. Even so, it’s not possible to have guessed just how extreme and hyperbolic the left would become. Championing “resistance” as if they were in a revolutionary cadre in a South American country was not expected.… Read More

THE KILLING OF DONALD TRUMP

America’s elite class will never understand . . .

‘If you want to tell people the truth make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you.’

George Bernard Shaw

By Ladson F. Mills III

There is no need to offer advice. As the saying goes the wise don’t need it and the unwise won’t heed it. But if anyone from the White House happens to be reading here’s a thought. Perhaps a more playful attitude toward your antagonist is timely. You are confronted by the humorless and the humorless are deadly.

There was a time when there was admiration for those who took their jobs but not themselves seriously.… Read More

A VISIT TO MR. HOOVER’S GHOST

The Nattering Nabobs Still Busy

By Harry M. Covert

The current bumptiousness ongoing among the nation’s elite – the know-it-all’s – is something to behold and brings more cause to be concerned about the country’s health.

Relax, friends. No matter what the “nattering nabobs” of today are blathering, there’s no constitutional crisis or Tuesday night massacre.

Stirring the political pot continues and likely will. The late great speechwriter and newspaper columnist William Safire is remembered for that wonderful “nattering” quote.

Actually to put everything in perspective today, the big issue is simple. Will the Washington Nationals and the Baltimore Orioles reach baseball’s World Series at the same time?… Read More
