Jon Stewart appears with NY senators and 9/11 first responders, to support renewing the Victims Compensation Fund.

9/11 First Responders Deserve More

If you haven’t yet seen Jon Stewart’s testimony in favor of renewing health benefits for 9/11 first responders, you should watch it here, now. 

In it, the former Daily Show host calls out the politicians who didn’t bother showing up to a Congressional hearing on renewing the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. The Fund provides financial reimbursement for those injured during or suffering from medical defects because of the 9/11 attacks. The majority of those serviced by the Fund are first responders who performed fire and rescue that day.

Stewart appeared with several 9/11 first responders and their families, many of whom provided accompanying testimony. Among them was retired NYPD Detective Luis Alvarez, who contracted colorectal cancer from rescue …

There’s No Virtue in Damnation

Nobody enjoys playing God more than the secular left.

For as tolerant and inclusive as these folks purport to be, the secular humanist wing of the American political left is infinitely more spiteful than the God of the Old Testament whom they despise and vastly more intolerant than the religious folks who they deride as “bitter clingers,” in the words of former President Barack Obama. These are the nihilists, atheists, and moral subjectivists; all those who contend that human life is inherently meaningless, that there is no objective standard of morality, and that religion is merely a covert vehicle for the imposition of homophobic bigotry under the protection of the First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause.

These folks are our moral …

Police Suicide: A Call to Action

“Our collective silence only compounds the problem.” ~Chief Craig Steckler (Retired), Fremont PD

What is Happening?

New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill made one of the most difficult statements of his career earlier this month, announcing the suicides of two veteran NYPD officers. Deputy Chief Steven J. Silks, 62, just weeks from his mandatory retirement, and Detective Joseph Calabrese 58, a high-ranking union official, died within twenty-four hours of one another. Commissioner O’Neill called police suicides a “mental health crisis” and urged despondent officers to seek help, before any more were lost to suicide.

Less than ten days later, O’Neill’s “crisis” diagnosis was vindicated, when an as-of-yet unnamed Staten Island officer, only 29, killed himself outside the precinct where …

How I Accomplish My Goals, Even While Being A Caregiver

Recently, a friend of mine asked me how I have accomplished so much while being a caregiver to my husband. I began sharing some tips with her and decided I would share some tips with you. 

  • Wake up early! I always wake up by 0600 when I have things to do, sometimes earlier. Especially if I want to enjoy a cup of coffee without being rushed.
  • I schedule all doctor appointments on Tuesdays or Fridays. This enforces structured consistency (great for those with TBI) and it allows us to have a break from appointments during the week. 
  • I hire people to help! I periodically hire a handyman to fix things around our house. I also hire someone to take care

The Disingenuous Left Prevails

On Monday, Kyle Kashuv announced that his admission to Harvard University had been revoked.

A survivor of the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School in Parkland, Florida, Kashuv has earned national media attention as an outspoken gun rights activist pitted against his leftist peers who seek to impose strict gun regulation and oust from the political arena those with whom they disagree on policy. This, you see, is the disingenuousness of the left, and Kyle Kashuv is the latest victim.

First we must understand that, for Kyle Kashuv, it was an asinine decision to express the putridly imbecilic sentiment which he prattled in the unfortunate company of a likewise immature flock of dopes in the years prior …
