Featured image Ammo Grrrll rebels against the tyranny of leftist clichés DYING IN THE STREETS FROM HITTING THE GLASS CEILING ON THE PLANTATION! She writes: When I was young, Art Linkletter had a book and a show called Kids Say the Darnedest Things. Leftists say the darnedest things too, apparently in the belief that if you just say them often enough and loudly enough and with enough spittle flying from your mouth, »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll DON’T CARE WHO “LOOKS LIKE ME”! She writes: When I was a kid, back in the era of the single black rotary wall phone and the kerosene guitar, we could watch sporting or cultural events and appreciate the performance rather than obsess over bean-counting the race, gender or sexual orientation of the performer. What wonderful innocent days! How much we all have lost with wretched identity politics. When »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll is here to lend a helping hand understanding the AMERICAN MUSLIM RESPONSE TO TERRORISM. She writes: It has happened again, of course, and will again. A lunatic Muslim Uzbek, here on a “Diversity Visa” – which, I thought had to be a made up thing, but no, it’s real – has killed many people, wounded more. At least the name Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov is probably not going to »

Featured image Ammo Grrrl takes a look in the rearview mirror to give us DILETTANTE DEFINED. She writes: “I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. … . He knows what a good reader of people he is … He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.” Last week, my wonderful »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll is not talking about the classics when she recalls THE OLD BOOKS. She writes: As I have mentioned several times before, long ago in a galaxy far far away, I — like many a foolish youth before me — was a card-carrying left-winger. That was one of the MANY reasons why I was so unimpressed with candidate Obama. I had seen his “community organizer” type a hundred times »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll lets her mind wander to SEX STUFF: MEN AND WOMEN MAY BE DIFFERENT! She writes: As even casual readers of this column know, Mr. AG and I have been married for a very, very, extremely very long time. Because Mr. AG knows me so well, he does feel that he can correct me if I have something terribly wrong. You know, for my own good. So I don’t »

If he were a Richman…

Featured image When I wrote about Mark Steyn’s appearance to speak at the fall briefing of the Center of the American Experiment in 2014, I noted Mark’s improvisation at length on the theme of Rich Richman from a New York Post story on President Obama’s fundraising appearance earlier that week at the mansion of the gazillionaire. I noted that Mark played with the theme of “Rich Richman” like a jazz soloist taking »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll pays tribute to NANCY PELOSI: HOMESPUN PHILOSOPHER. She writes: I suppose it is a matter of opinion whether or not it is constitutionally permitted to engage in Nancy Pelosi’s infamous shouting of “Wolf!” in a crowded theatre. Personally, I believe it is, although it may hinge on how the Wolf chooses to be addressed. But I can promise you shouting “Wolf” or “Javelina” or “Gnu” is unappreciated once »

Lawrence O’Donnell: What happened

Featured image If you have ever struggled to keep the lid on or lost it under stress, you may identify with the meltdowns of prominent media figures that have been leaked to the public over the years. I certainly do. I therefore haven’t found much amusement in the leaked video of MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell struggling to keep the lid on his anger management issues during the breaks on his show earlier this »

Featured image I think Ammo Grrrll is observing the second day of Rosh Hashanah today, but she filed this one before sundown on Wednesday. You are therefore empowered to profit from EAT THE RICH! She writes: Remember when Rachel Maddow had the big scoop of “somehow” getting hold of one of President Trump’s tax returns? Never mind that every way of getting such a thing involved illegality. It was supposed to be »

Featured image We all need this and Ammo Grrrll now thoughtfully provides it: APOLOGIES: A HANDBOOK. She writes: 
Well, a talentless has-been who has recently inflicted herself on Australia and shall remain nameless, has retracted her weepy apology for being photographed with a grotesque bloody beheaded Trump mask. Color ME shocked! I totally believed she was sincere when she finally apologized after exhausting all other options and finding none worked. Her best »

Featured image What’s that sound you don’t hear? Ammo Grrrll is not hearing DOG WHISTLES GALORE! She writes: Well, friends, I woke up this morning to a $1.00 bill on my nightstand. Now either that was a pathetic commentary on my contribution to the festivities the night before, or some kind of anti-Semitic “dog whistle” because, you know, money/Jooz, what else could that mean? Then I remembered that I was cleaning out »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll would like certain parties to know: YOU AREN’T IT! She writes: I finally met a member of The Resistance in my Arizona! Well, I didn’t meet her exactly. I saw her get into her car in the Walmart parking lot. Her Prius had two bumper stickers: the first announced: “Member Resistance: Resist Trump’s Agenda.” Coincidentally enough, Mr. AG and I had just watched an amazing documentary called Above »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll peers into our near future and sees: IT WAS THE STATUES!!! I think I should add TRIGGER WARNING!!! just so you can’t say you weren’t warned. She writes: Dateline…sometime in the not-so-distant future Who knew? For many many decades the Educational Establishment had been absolutely consumed with the “gap” in educational achievement between students “of color” and students of extreme Nazi whiteness. And, of course, Asians, who are »

P.J. O’Rourke, call your office

Featured image Hillary Clinton’s books are said to induce nausea. My advice? Skip the books; read the reviews. Especially if they are written by Steve, or by P.J. O’Rourke. O’Rourke’s review of Mrs. Clinton’s It Takes a Village, published by the Weekly Standard, was hilarious. He called the review “It Takes a Village Idiot.” Here is the opening: It takes a village to raise a child. The village is Washington. You are »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll meditates on low finance, as in FINANCING KETTLE CORN. She writes: Sometimes, when the world is too much with us, we have to fall back on lighter topics. Today is such a day. After 10 days of a miserable flu, I just don’t have the stomach for weighing in on the many layers of disgrace in Charlottesville. No “humorist” can take on such a depressing subject. And so »

“This is like mad libs”

Featured image Mike Mullen is the news editor of Twin Cities alternative weekly CityPages. Last week Mullen took after Mitchell Gunter’s Campus Reform report on a University of Minnesota student group called Tongues Untied. Tongues Untied describes itself as “a space by and for People of Color who identify as LGBTQIA and/or Same-Gender-Loving.” Mullen mocked Gunter’s criticism of the group’s exclusivity. When it comes to argument, Mullen is a practitioner of the »
