Duly Noted - Run For Peace?

A New Approach – To Finally End an Old Farm Bill Problem

frmbl2The Farm Bill is a bane of we Conservatives’ existence – and Reality-based policymaking. It is a relic of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR)’s horrendously failed New Deal – a top-down, central-planning nightmare mess.

And over the last eighty-plus years, FDR’s heinous domestic policy has gone global. […]

Democrats Respect Majorities Until They Attack Majorities

elzbthwrnHow are we to understand the Democratic Party’s view of what validates a “majority view.” For the DP, the votes of the American people do not themselves legitimize the existence of a majority. All majority views are viable and to be tolerated as long as the majority is […]

UN Selects Nations That Abuse Women: ONE Country Made the List

wronwmn3Who knew that the War on Women has now been isolated to ONE nation!

Republicans Need to Wise Up. Or Lose the Election!

shThe Republicans just don’t get it. The Whitehouse is all theirs for the taking. All they need to do is keep their mouths shut. If you haven’t noticed the liberals run by headlines. And I know you think the more you say the more people you will convince. […]

A Bold Proposal for Conservative GOP Candidates

jbbsh2As Jesus warned, “If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand” (Mark 3:25).

Ted Cruz Throws His Hat in the Ring

hat in ring

Monday’s address by Senator Ted Cruz at Liberty University was a breath of fresh air on the political scene. It was something that has been missing for decades. It was, in a word, Reaganesque.”Ted-Cruz”

The Wrong Reason to Not Support Ted Cruz

On Monday, Ted Cruz announced his presidential candidacy in a speech at Liberty University. He is the first major candidate to officially announce. There is a lot to like about Ted Cruz. On most issues he is as conservative as or more than his Senate GOP colleagues. I also like his combative attitude, and his […]

Why Americans Don’t Care About ISIS

Speaker Boehner: Democrat Dissenter

In ratifying law-breaking by both President Obama and millions of aliens, Boehner removed any lingering doubt that he is the Democrat-preferred Obama-Pelosi House Speaker. After the amnesty debacle, there can be no doubt that he is not even a RINO; he is the next-best-to-Pelosi front-man for the far left Democrats.

What Paul Krugman Could Learn From How Big Government Created The Obesity Epidemic

plkrgmnOne of the most frightening forces at work in the world today is the tendency of Big Government toward perversion of science. The scientific method is pristine.

Walker Derangement Syndrome Reaching Fever Pitch

sctwlkrScott Walker got elected as governor of Wisconsin without a college degree. That has the usual purveyors of snide remarks, such as democratic provocateur, Howard Dean, questioning Walker’s presidential qualifications. Funny, once upon a time the unlikely achiever was celebrated as an American success story. In Howard […]

Exposing the Myth of Big Government as an Ally of the Average Person

government-Uncle_Sam-61The argument used by liberals since the New Deal is that a bigger federal government is a necessary aid to the poor and average American.

Hillary's Hard Choices are About to Get Harder

2013-01-17T015659Z_1_CBRE90G05F200_RTROPTP_3_OSCE-CLINTONI finally finished the epic book by Hillary. I should at least be up for a Nobel peace prize. Obviously the book did not do well. And at the end of the day, it looks like Hillary has not accomplished much in all these so called years of […]

3 Alternatives to Starbucks’ RaceTogether Campaign

deaecd4b65c24dc9feb64923b663ddc9Espresso makes you hyper. When you’re hyper you sometimes make rash decisions. When you make rash decisions you usually regret it. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz evidently chugged a Venti-five-shot-double-pump-skinny-vanilla-latte on Monday before announcing Starbucks’ new “RaceTogether” public relations stunt. As he describes it, the über-”progressive” head of […]
