A short time ago, in a galaxy very, very, nearby, a rebel alliance led by a Jedi Grandmaster named Lessig (who I know slightly and admire greatly) conducted a stunning raid on the Death Star. What Death Star? It is the money engines of Washington, DC, the […]
The 2014 election is over and attention has already turned to 2016. Does the Republican success in this election portend a similarly favorable outcome in two years – as did the Democrat congressional sweep in 2006 herald the election of a Democrat President in 2008? Perhaps. But, […]
Voters have shown, yet again, that we do not like political fanatics. “Fanatic” is defined by my resident dictionary as “a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal, esp. for an extreme … political cause.” The Republican Party, in the nuanced language of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky), […]
The public and pundits alike, tend to read too much into the results of a particular election because society has fallen for the romantic notion that the culture can be perfected and social problems can be solved solely through the political process.
From a theological perspective, when […]
As we head into late November, the historic 2014 midterm elections are now behind us–at least for the most part. Nearly all of the close House, Senate, and gubernatorial races have now been decided. Republicans have secured 244 seats in the House of Representatives compared to 186 for the Democrats, with the outcome of five […]
Well obviously the Republicans are the winners of the Senate. And they deserve credit for keeping their mouths shut and keeping their feet out of their orifices. And all the liberal Democrats had to blame was Lord Obama. It is kind of like when Clinton decided to […]
On January 3, 2015, the 114th Congress of the United States will convene for the new sessions which will run through January 3, 2017. The 2014 mid-term election was a seismic political shift in Washington D.C. power and the American people didn’t make broad changes in power […]
Democrats will go after dog-fighters, spouse and child-abusers in sports. But when it comes to politics, Democrats look the other way.
The NAACP did exactly that, as they came to the aid of woman-beater Carlos Henriquez.
You likely don’t know who Carlos Henriquez is, but he is […]
The best predictor of future voting patterns is past voting patterns, to use a twist on a famous maxim. This is probably even truer of groups than individuals, and, despite some wishful thinking to the contrary, this election cycle was no exception. As to this, Silvio Canto […]
We’re just seven days away from Election Day. On November 4, 2014, tens of millions of American citizens will head to the polls to elect their governors, senators, and representatives–those who will govern and represent them in public office. This occasion presents a responsibility on the part of the electors to know who they are […]
All recent polling data confirms that over 70% of the people believe that Obama and Democrats are leading the nation in the wrong direction, many of them believing that they are leading the country right off a cliff.
So, defeating Obama’s Democrats should be a walk in […]
Washington state’s I-594 has massive money pouring into it, because it’s apparently the only gun-control measure on the ballot this fall anywhere across the country. There are actually two dueling gun measures in the state. The first one, I-594, the Washington Universal Background Checks for Gun […]
Most political eyes now are turned to whether the Republicans will take, or the Democrats hold, a Senate majority. Meanwhile what may be a comparably important election will be conducted, probably next month, mostly out of the public eye.
This is the race between Rep. […]
There is a growing sense in the country that America is in decline. It is not a slow, prolonged deterioration stemming from some inherent defect, but rather a sudden precipitous fall, pointing to a failure in leadership. In fact, a solid majority of Americans now question this […]

In one of my blog posts on Measure 6, the North Dakota initiative that would establish a presumption of equal parenting in the state, I pointed out that any monetary support given to the opposition (or proponents) by the State Bar […]
All too often, instead of being the keepers of the law, state bar associations flagrantly violate the law instead. They get away with this because they are controlled by powerful judges and affluent left-wing attorneys. Most often, people are too terrified to take on the […]
The most common statement about today’s elections is that “elections don’t matter!” Yet, never has there been a moment in history when it was more critical for every AMERICAN to vote very carefully!
The reason can be stated in a single sentence… Because every non-American and anti-American […]
Or did they? Why would Scotland or any other land mass want to separate from the mother ship. Mainly because they are unhappy. So who is unhappy? Probably less than the majority. Did you know that only a third wanted to separate from the king during the […]
With the Congressional general elections just a few weeks away, the battle for control of the U.S. Senate has become a real horse race. Although establishment Democratic senators are outspending their Republican Tea Party challengers by millions of dollars to try to win re-election in multiple key races, those challengers are staying very close to […]
