It is a good thing the Scots voted against independence from England. The movement was not about freedom, but about increasing socialism. Both the UK Socialist and Green Parties, along with other left-wing parties, supported the referendum; the Conservative Party (Tories) and right wing UKIP opposed it. [...]
TODAYS FILM CHOICE
“All the Real Girls” …featuring “New Girl’s” Zooey Deschenal in first starring role
WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Filmed way back in 2008, it’s about young love gone very wrong
But its maudlin story-line is redeemed by superb camera work; a tear-soaked naturalism; & its haunting musical score.
From my perspective, it’s certainly worth [...]
Man is a territorial animal. A consequence is mass murder that proves that pacifism, meant as an antidote for aggression, facilitates bloodshed. If land is involved, leaders and peoples tend to lose their rationality and their moral compass of decency.
Most conflicts are about claims [...]

Steve Forbes, with Elizabeth Ames, in Money: How the Destruction of the Dollar Threatens the Global Economy—and What We Can Do About It has thought the issues through. So has, among others, Lewis E. [...]
Government growth is a self-perpetuating and self-fulfilling prophecy.
Government is just another organism. Like any organism, its first instinct is self-preservation. Government – and its remora advocates – marshals all their forces should anyone suggest any program be reduced even slightly. [...]
Two generations ago, back when Gamal Abdel Nasser stirred the hearts of third world nationalists all over the globe, there was a term that gained widespread currency: Pan Arabism.
Pan Arabism was the idea the Arab world could be united around a set of common interests and [...]
Just like Bill Clinton, what is obvious to everyone else, seems to baffle Obama. ISIS is the latest, greatest bully of Islam. So much a bully that as hard as Obama has tried to marginalize them, they keep bouncing back. Even I cringe now to hear him [...]
In 1990, evolutionist Tim Berra used the “evolution” of Corvette models as an apt analogy to describe the existing fossil record and to defend the [...]
Cronyism. Or Crony Capitalism. It’s actually Crony Socialism – because it actually has nothing to do with capitalism.
Crony Socialism is not an unfettered free market where the best ideas and companies win. It’s the government warping and distorting the market: favoring with absurdly [...]
We could go in a lot of different directions here. Opposites attract, same poles repel. But the Democrats have a great PR program on the internet. They will send you an email for just about any reason. I get emails from Lady Michelle, BO and even the [...]
One major criticism of U.S. health care is that we spend more money on health care than any other country. If health spending consumes resources that are needed elsewhere, this could be a problem. The U.S. now spends about 17 percent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) [...]
Attorney, author and columnist David Limbaugh is a man after my own heart. He’s also a man after my own mind. That is to say, as both a fellow member of the bar and follower of Christ, I tremendously [...]
In our last episode yours truly explained a basic problem with the assessment put forth by others and asserted that the ISIS terrorists should not be judged by the same criteria as any similar group, declaring a “caliphate” 50 or 100+ years ago. The fact that this group has access to better financing, better technology [...]

Scotland votes on independence from the United Kingdom tomorrow. I’ll be rooting very hard for a yes vote.
The primary reason I strongly support Scottish independence is because it will serve as a beautiful illustration of how civilized unions respond when a geographic territory votes to secede. During all the debate leading up to the [...]
In January 1999, I answered a classified ad in the Los Angeles Times for security guards at a U.S. Army facility in Qatar. It was a one year contract.
The company placing the ad was Dyn-Corp. They were looking for former military police or civilian law enforcement [...]

General Patton was famously quoted back during World War II that it wasn’t the job of the soldier to die for his country; his job was to make the other SOB die for his. Patton was correct, as is Rush Limbaugh when he says that the job of the military is to kill people and [...]
$1.4 trillion are “stranded” overseas. Seventy-five Congresspeople, and growing, from both parties, respectfully led by freshman Representative John Delaney (D-Md), are advancing a plan to retrieve that money.
