As our culture slides into the abyss from several directions at once, it’s hard to get a steady fix on the bottom. I’ll try.
We pixel-stained wretches of the Mass Media lately have been busy as ever transfixing you with spectacles. Meanwhile, something really important — softly outside the melodrama — has occurred. Trillions of dollars — including your dollars — in the real economy and in the stock and bond […]
Remember that recurring Saturday Night Live skit where the late Chris Farley was the ultimate fanboy – interviewing those for whom he was the ultimate fanboy?
Sniveling and sweaty, he would bring up some of his favorite memories of his interviewees – pretending they were questions by […]
This political season has started with a big bang. So far, we do not even have to pay that much attention to the boring Democratic side of this process. What we have at this writing is more than 16 serious candidates for the GOP nomination for President […]
“The average man doesn’t want to be free. He wants to be safe.” H.L. Mencken
Most people see the conflict between limited government and big government as a political battle between conservatives and liberals. This conflict is much more profound than political theory can encompass.
The battle […]
Everywhere I turn in political discussions of late the subject is all too often Donald Trump. People want to know why he is doing so well in polling and why nothing seems to take him down. Others claim that he has peaked and can go no […]
Written in 2002, an alliance was discussed in the French newspaper Le Figaro in an article written by Alexandre del Valle. Described as the red- green-brown alliance it referred to the antisemitic and anti-American alliances formed within ideological trends of the war machine of the Islamic front. The red part of this alliance is the […]
The Muslim religion has been described by its adherents as the way to live and prosper in Gods word. Alliances have been made with the Islamic religion through the centuries to various ends, alliances that Muslims and apologists will tell you never happened because of the purity of the religion they follow. Apologists state that […]
Who has the most power in the country over political issues? Everyone focuses on the president and Congress when they talk about reforming the system and taking control back from the left, but they overlook the real powerbroker. Federal courts have been deciding the most contentious issues […]
Thank goodness we last November gave the Republicans the Senate majority.
Who besides the GOP would resurrect government money for ridiculous “green” “energy” – which is neither green nor energy? To the tune of tens (if not hundreds) of billions of dollars more down the juice-less […]
Just about all of us have been there. Dating someone – and it isn’t working. You don’t get along. The person doesn’t give you what you want. You aren’t happy.
You each try to change the person, hoping a tweak here or there will suddenly, magically make […]
Another failure to learn from history is the only way to describe the foolhardy notion that allowing active duty military personnel to carry a sidearm while on duty at U.S. Military facilities could endanger the lives of personnel on the base. The exact opposite, as with most […]
America is on the final brink of collapse as freedom and liberty teeter on the brink of extinction, all for one simple reason, your silence is your consent… and the people have been far too silent for far too long. Until someone is held accountable, no one is […]
I suppose it’s a bit more of an anecdote than a commentary. Twenty-two years ago and it seems like last week.
Isn’t that something old farts say?
The aftermath from the previous night’s whirlwind revelry had become all too familiar. Friends had come and friends had gone. […]
The Obama administration is a hodgepodge of communists, muslims, and cronys whose sole job as they see it is to take America down. It is their belief that this country is too big, too well off, and thinks itself exceptional. To them, this is tantamount to arrogance. Let’s take a quick look of some of […]
After the Iran Deal was announced, my social media feeds lit up with both scorn and derision coming from my interventionist friends and praise and thanksgiving coming from my non-interventionist friends. While I am a very vocal non-interventionist and am glad a deal with Iran was reached rather than not, I find myself in the […]
Despite the fact the U.S. is highly dependent upon oil and natural gas, and it is scientifically dubious that their production and use is destroying the earth, environmental activists continue to expand their efforts to relentlessly get the energy sources stamped out of society. Now there […]
On the night of 9/11/2012 our Special Mission in Benghazi was attacked. Lost were four men who served the country proudly and at great risk. It never been fully explained what happened that night, and very probably may never be. But there are some aspects of the entire encounter that is Troubling to the American […]
