Farewell to My Wife

January 28, 2019 by


By Burt Prelutsky   ~      By this time, some of you know that my wife of 33 years, Yvonne, has passed away. Even though I was aware for over a week that it could happen at any moment, the other morning when I received the call from the hospital, it felt like a ton of bricks […]

Barack Obama, Meet King Canute

February 20, 2015 by


By Burt Prelutsky ~ Over the past six years, Obama has left us with a slew of memorable moments. There was that occasion when he called together a group of Democrats and Republicans, and took the opportunity to tell John McCain to sit down and shut up because one of them had won a presidential […]

The United States of Obama

November 23, 2013 by


By Burt Prelutsky  ~ I know a guy who makes a fortune designing bottles, jars and cans, thus making them more appealing to consumers. But it’s still the contents that matter if the consumer is going to purchase a second bottle, jar or can, of the stuff. In the same way, there are those who […]

French Fried Potatoheads

July 6, 2012 by


By Burt Prelutsky  ~  As you may have noticed, France elected a new president named Francois Hollande. I’m delighted. It’s   rare that a country and its president so richly deserve one another. France, after all, is a nation that sat by while its Muslim population set its cities afire because sharia law wasn’t yet on […]

With Conservatives Like These…

January 22, 2012 by


By Burt Prelutsky ~   Santorum, Gingrich and Perry, all condemned Mitt Romney’s Bain Financial for putting people out of work. If anyone should be sidelined, it’s Santorum, Gingrich and Perry. For one thing, as every conservative who isn’t running behind in the primaries knows, venture capitalists put their money where their mouths are. Nothing ventured, […]

All the News That’s Fit to Ridicule

August 20, 2011 by


By Burt Prelutsky So many absurd things are taking place around the world on a weekly, daily and even hourly basis that there’s simply no way to stay on top of it all. If one man can barely keep up with the lunacy occurring in America, you can imagine what a Herculean task it is […]

Role Models (Only Blacks Need Apply)

August 19, 2011 by


By Burt Prelutsky Recently, someone asked me who my role models were when I was a kid. Having been a baseball fan all my life and a fairly precocious reader (“The Grapes of Wrath” at age 11), the names I came up with were Ted Williams, Stan Musial, John Steinbeck, William Saroyan, and Humphrey Bogart. […]

Oh, No, Obama!

August 15, 2011 by


By Burt Prelutsky Recently, in my morning email, I received a fake quiz. It consisted of 10 quotes and I was being asked to figure out which of the quotes should be attributed to Sarah Palin, Dan Quayle, Barack Obama or George W. Bush. It wasn’t hard to guess that Obama was the source for […]

Are Liberals Actually Human?

May 27, 2011 by


By Burt Prelutsky Two questions that often plague me are what planet do liberals hail from, and why don’t they go back? For instance, Michael Moore, who looks more and more like Helen Thomas every day, along with many of his fellow leftists, has insisted that, morally, there was no difference between Osama bin Laden’s […]

The Not So Great Debate

May 25, 2011 by


By Burt Prelutsky In the wake of the GOP debate in South Carolina, I have decided that Herman Cain was not only the clear-winner, but that he’s now the guy to beat. He’s bright, speaks well and seems to be free of the sort of baggage that career politicians always seem to be carting around. […]

Choosing Between RINOs and Libs

May 23, 2011 by


By Burt Prelutsky For several weeks now, I’ve been involved in email debates with some of my fellow conservatives. They’ve been on my case ever since I pointed out that a Republican-lite is preferable to a Democrat. I swear, if this were the Middle Ages, they’d have me burned at the stake for heresy. It’s […]

Why We All Can’t Get Along

May 11, 2011 by


By Burt Prelutsky I believe it was that seer, that shaman among shamen, Rodney King, who first asked, ever so plaintively: why can’t we all just get along? Unfortunately, he didn’t ask me. If I recall events correctly, he was about to be handed a check for a few million dollars signed by the taxpayers […]

The Bloodthirsty Left

December 31, 2010 by


By Burt Prelutsky I used to get a warm feeling when I’d read or hear the words to be found at the base of the Statue of Liberty. It’s a poem titled “The New Colossus,” and written by Emma Lazarus. Among its odd requests are that the world give us “your poor, your huddled masses, […]

A Random Harvest

December 27, 2010 by


By Burt Prelutsky There are times when so many idle thoughts are running through my head that they threaten to gum up the works if I don’t unload them. This is one of those times. A liberal judge granted a felon with a long rap sheet release for a month so he could care for […]

Judge Finds Obamacare Fines Illegal + More

October 20, 2010 by


The Patriot Post Chronicle The Foundation “[I]f the public are bound to yield obedience to laws to which they cannot give their approbation, they are slaves to those who make such laws and enforce them.” –Candidus Editorial Exegesis “Legal arguments for Obamacare’s individual mandate fail the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ test and the duck test. In […]

A Diverse Opinion About Diversity

September 18, 2010 by


By Burt Prelutsky Recently, I heard from a guy who claimed that squirrel tasted just like chicken. Some days, I swear, I get the idea that everything’s supposed to taste like chicken. But it brought home the fact that what we eat, as well as what we think, is often more a matter of geography […]

Sex, Lies and the Movies

September 15, 2010 by


By Burt Prelutsky One of the reasons that movies today are so devoid of compelling characters and engrossing plots is that the folks who make them are, more often than not, too young and too isolated from humanity. That’s not to say that writers and directors in their 20s and 30s can’t be talented, but, […]

The Two Year Itch

September 14, 2010 by


By Burt Prelutsky People used to talk about the seven year itch as the time in a marriage when one or both spouses was likely to start fantasizing about hooking up with another man or, as is more often the case, another woman. Well, I’ve reached that point. Not with my wife, you understand, but […]

Airport Insecurity

September 13, 2010 by


By Burt Prelutsky I recently had to fly up to San Francisco in order to appear on Ronn Owens’ popular radio show. It was the third time I had done an hour with the affable Mr. Owens, and it was the best one yet because it marked the first time I ever had listeners in […]

Tone-Deaf Obama and the Gulf Oil Disaster + More

June 16, 2010 by


The Patriot Post Chronicle The Foundation “Here comes the orator! With his flood of words, and his drop of reason.” –Benjamin Franklin The Demo-gogues The Oval Office Address (Short Version): “I’ve returned … I assembled a team … I’d like to lay out … I’ve authorized … I urge the governors … I saw and […]

The Democrat Party’s Founding Father + More

June 17, 2008 by


They preside over an institution advised and influenced by moneyed, non-governmental groups and individuals with unquestionably anti-U.S. agendas who help make the Party a pseudo-intellectual sinkhole filled with perverse, tried-and-failed ideas repulsive to the majority of Americans. With utter disrespect, indeed contempt, for traditional American values, religions and institutions.
