Working For A Living

In a gubernatorial race where both candidates are to a greater or lesser degree beholden to the open borders lobby, notwithstanding the requisite pre-election posturing of the GOP standard-bearer, a genuine debate about the impact of  mass immigration upon California has not materialized, alas. Even so, the public policies which have irrevocably transformed the...

Team Emma (Join The Fight Against Childhood Cancer)

Team Emma (Join The Fight Against Childhood Cancer)

Unfortunately, there aren’t many people whose lives haven’t been touched by cancer in one form or another. One of the most heartbreaking forms, as well as one whose research is perhaps the most grossly underfunded, is pediatric cancer. That’s why the need to support those suffering from it is so urgently needed, as in...

Sons of Liberty (The Boston Tea Party Opera At Fringe)

Sons of Liberty (The Boston Tea Party Opera At Fringe)

You can find my entire review at Liberty Island as well.  I’m not what you would characterize as a typical fan of opera, be it  of the buffa or not-so buffa variety. In fact, when a close friend of mine-who also happens to be a classically trained pianist-asked me whether the opera I intended...

The Daily Rattle: Children’s Crusade Edition

The Daily Rattle: Children’s Crusade Edition

The mendacity of our current administration is at times stunning, even for those of us who should by now have become inured to the lies regurgitated by the Obama administration and its factotums for the better part of two terms. The disavowals by La Raza graduate Cecilia Munoz and village idiot Joe Biden notwithstanding,...

The People Have Spoken

The People Have Spoken

Update: Roy Beck’s statement regarding the results in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District is now available online.  The only question that remains is whether the heretofore tone deaf GOP leadership in the House of Representatives is listening. We, like many patriotic Americans of every partisan affiliation, are celebrating the defeat of soon to be ex-Majority...

Irish Americans in the Arts

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of attending the monthly salon held by the Irish American Writers and Artists  at The Cell theatre. Even though I had heard about this event previously, and had attended gatherings in other locations, this is the first time I had the opportunity to attend one of IAWA’s...

Inside The Mind Of A “Mad Man”

Inside The Mind Of A “Mad Man”

Update: Here’s a link to a somewhat more concise review I did for Goodreads.  One of the most common critiques of contemporary American society, and Western culture more broadly, is its purported enthrallment to the opiate of celebrity. The notion that ordinary Americans are so dumbfounded by popular entertainment that they can’t understand linear,...

Muzzling Dissent (Covering Immigration to the UK)

Muzzling Dissent (Covering Immigration to the UK)

The incalculable damage that mass immigration from the third world has inflicted upon the United Kingdom is a subject that we’ve explored at length on American Rattlesnake. Although the ritualistic murder and dismemberment of Drummer Lee Rigby is the most notorious recent illustration of how this phenomenon has adversely impacted native Britons, there are...
