The question is not, “Is America falling?” but, rather, “Why is America falling?”
I’m currently writing from CPAC 2014, the nation’s largest gathering of conservative political junkies. The event is being held at the beautiful Gaylord National hotel, adjacent the scenic shoreline of the historic Potomac River. [...]
A Very German/Fascist Transition Prefiguring the Socialist International Conversion from Communism to Post Modern Multiculturalism & Identity Politics
The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics died an ugly death in the 1990’s so that it has little or no chance of recovering. Yet, such an ugly political collapse proved to be very opportunistic for many [...]
A few years ago I participated in a radio debate on “white privilege” with a certain man, whose name is unimportant, who had a Ph.D. in “ethnic studies.” At one point he introduced an argument by saying, “If whites are 80 percent of the population…,” which prompted [...]
Having been forced into a prone position following surgery two weeks ago, I was necessarily bound to recumbent furniture and was therefore a captive audience of the Boob Tube for nearly ten days; which for me, consisted mostly of Turner Classic Movies, old sitcoms on TV Land [...]
On Sunday February 9th, 1964, I sat in my small rocking chair in the living room of my family home. An older sister was there, as were my parents, who stopped what they were doing in the kitchen to watch the next performers from the Ed Sullivan [...]
Shakespeare had Mark Antony comment in his funeral oration for Caesar that “the Evil that men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their bones” – a wistful remark on the propensity of the Roman mob [...]
Apocalypticism has exploded in popularity and, while nuclear war and pandemics have always been a starting point, the concept of the Zombie Apocalypse trumps them all. The appeal and wild popularity of shows like The Walking Dead, movies like World War Z, and the slew of apocalyptic, [...]
Daniel Hannan, the famous Euro-skeptic, recently published a magnificent book, Inventing Freedom: How the English-Speaking Peoples Made the Modern World. In it he traces the history of the Anglosphere – the English-speaking countries of the world – from its origin in the British Isles to [...]
Are you ready for some football?
Super Bowl Sunday is, obviously, a day for fun, food and friends. But as you enjoy the football game, consider the deeper meaning of it all – and how our economic fortunes could improve if we seriously changed our [...]
Fifty years ago this week, the Beatles first appeared on the Ed Sullivan show, giving America it’s first taste of what became known as The British Invasion. As a little girl, I remember the excitement surrounding this appearance; in fact, my parents let my five brothers and [...]
Perhaps we should have chosen the turkey as our national bird, as Benjamin Franklin suggested. It would certainly be more appropriate for our times. But if any flying creature would do, a moth might be more fitting still — with political correctness playing the role of that [...]
Inequality means a lot of things to different people. Obama and the liberals plan to screw up the economy more so just like they did for healthcare. After all if Obama is an expert on healthcare, he also must be an expert on the economy.
The word inequality [...]
Inventive labels do not heal what they cover up.
Labels can change an object’s perceived meaning while the traits of the verbally recycled item remain unchanged. Through this process, the good is redone as bad, black may mute into white, and [...]
Following President Obama’s lead, the Democrats are seeking to make income inequality the wedge issue of the 2014 Congressional and Senate elections. This unquestionably addresses an issue that — after forty years of middle class family wage stagnation — resonates with voters. Yet the Republicans, thanks to [...]
It’s starting to appear as if marijuana users have become the homosexual lobby of the chemically dependent. What do I mean? Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson could mention one sexual behavior (adultery) as disqualifying someone from the “kingdom of God,” but mentioning that “other” sexual behavior? That’s a boycottin’, pardner! [...]
The news from Sunday’s NFC title game between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francesco 49ers was not so much about the action on the field, but what transpired in a post-game interview between Fox Sports’ Erin Andrews and Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. Sherman, who saved the [...]
Some dissonance to embellish an otherwise undisturbed self-anointment.
Inexorably, the intensively self-admired ‘68ers are ageing. The passing of time does not keep the eternally youthful from continuing in their bad old childish habits. Therefore, the gorilla-style breast beating continues. It is followed by preaching [...]
