Duly Noted - Perils and their Perspectives

Duly Noted

Run Jimmy Duncan Run!

I consider myself an across-the-board conservative but of the paleo sort, therefore I tend to disagree with mainstream conservatives on a few issues, most notably foreign policy.

Why Congress is Dysfunctional

Legal defense fund started for targeted conservative attorney and blogger Rachel Alexander

MM Michelle Malkin said about what happened to Rachel Alexander:

“Make no mistake: This is just another nasty battle in the Left’s long war to marginalize, demonize, and criminalize conservative dissent. The selective protection of free speech is unconscionable. The freedom to blog is under assault on so […]

Interventionists Need to Grasp the Concept of Neutrality

When I agree with someone on a political issue and I see him getting a bit carried away with his rhetoric, it’s easy to overlook, but when I disagree with someone on an issue, especially when we have essentially opposite opinions on a heated emotional issue, excesses of rhetoric really rub me the wrong way.

Opening a Can of Worms (or Chimpanzees)

I can distinctly recall that back in law school our class had occasion to discuss a case in which some purportedly enlightened individuals sought permission to sue the court on behalf of certain animals, the nature of which now escapes me. Suffice it to say that it was an environmental matter and the animals lost […]

Larry Kudlow’s False Challenge to Hillary Clinton

Larry Kudlow is a man whom I generally respect. He has a good handle on matters of business and economics and therefore deserves attention. But sometimes even the best of us goof up.
