The new Congress has a chance at giving us a tax reform that would save us taxpayers something less than, but approaching, $168 billion dollars a year. A significant amount of taxpayer savings could be realized by streamlining the tax collection process. It can be done without […]
We less government types believe in the Yellow Pages Rule: If you can find it in the Yellow Pages, the government shouldn’t be doing it.
But just before the 2008 election, soon-to-be-President Barack Obama proudly proclaimed “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States […]
While past presidents have always invited special guests to sit with their spouses during the annual State of the Union address to the nation, historians have pointed out they usually invited those who either achieved an act of bravery or contributed to the betterment of the […]
I enjoy reading the Savage books. He has written a bunch. It is a bit more concise than listening to his radio broadcasts. He writes about the coming civil war and how it can be avoided by voting for Republicans. The […]
Over the past several months, we have been exposed to a whirlwind of problems around the globe. From ISIS butchering thousands, to the civil war in Ukraine, to various political scandals here in America, there doesn’t seem to be enough time in the world to explore all […]
Really Troy? You are actually comparing deflated footballs to an alleged scheme to injure or take out other players?
You are actually comparing the New England Patriots deflate-gate issue to the worst scandals in sports. Just for the record, this act is so egregious that the NFL […]
In the wake of this week’s State of the Union speech, there were numerous comments by various groups and individuals commenting on the wide range of inaccuracies and outright lies that the speech contained. But one of the most important points was a failure to address the issue of Islamist Terrorism. In fact, signs of […]
The Affordable Care Act is a lie
I am deeply grateful to Rachel Alexander and Steve Laib of The Intellectual Conservative for their willingness to carry this series of excerpts from my new e-book, Your Personal Affordable Care Act: How To Avoid Obamacare. As conservatives, we need to speak bluntly about the fact […]
Dear French personnes,
I’ve been deep in thought while drinking a Double Ristretto Venti Half-Soy Nonfat Organic Chocolate Brownie Iced Vanilla Double-Shot Gingerbread Frappuccino at Starbucks, and feel like I owe an apology to you people for ditching France last Sunday. I realize over 40 world […]
Although it is not without precedent, the number of contenders for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination exceeds two dozen. It’s actually a somewhat ridiculous situation – especially as the number of Democrat candidates at this point is essentially one. I also say ridiculous because I […]
Texas is a state with a unique image in many ways. This unique quality can be illustrated by the adventure a former colleague had on a visit to Germany during the 1980’s. A German woman, asked […]
So ten years ago I am on a short excursion to Paris with my wife and we are in a small grocery store buying a few items. While we are checking out at the register, the cashier picks up the bananas I had laid on the counter, […]
In its essence Marxism, the core ideology of modern Socialism, is an irrational, utopian and coercive perversion of human equality. Marxism seeks equality where equality does not exist, demanding legal enforcement of equal social outcomes, including those related to economics, higher education, athletics, religion and human sexuality. […]
Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense, Department of Justice, and sundry other government agencies cannot be efficiently managed without great leadership in the Administration.
Politics has always been a full-contact sport and it is easy to see that one can become very beat-up and abused for standing […]
It’s so often the case that the best thing a person can do to improve his reputation is die. John F. Kennedy is now a legendary president, but would he be estimated so highly if he’d been able to end his political career as a man and […]
I love to see Bill Maher on TV. Now that Leno is gone he is showing up on Kimmel’s great show. Maher still doesn’t take credit for keeping Algore out of the Whitehouse. Now he wants to start a war! A war Obama should have continued 6 […]
A piece that appeared in the December 16, 2014 edition of the Cincinnati Enquirer entitled “Do charters take money from Cincinnati Public kids?” was, although technically correct, grossly misleading regarding charter school funding in Ohio.
The article states Ohio has authorized $3,600 in state taxpayer for each […]
A lesson from mankind’s experience is that all past generations have lived “interesting times.” Popular amnesia likes to lose sight of this, therefore, we think our day’s vicissitudes are unprecedented. That said it appears that we are departing from the cast of the past in […]

Given the volume of condemnation following the massacres in Paris I had decided against making any comment other than short condolences on Twitter and Facebook in which I quoted Winston Churchill: “This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be […]
War is raging. Now.
Unlike past wars, this is not being fought between two large armies on a battlefield. It isn’t being fought between two specific countries. It isn’t even being fought in any “traditional” way of warfare. This war is being fought in the midst of […]
Boehner’s problem with the militant right is not that he isn’t a conservative — he is — but that he is suave rather than confrontational. As an analogy, Baby Face Nelson was one of the most ruthless gangsters in history. Baby Face got his nickname for his […]
November’s election was an overwhelming, historic rebuke of what President Barack Obama and his Democrats are doing – and how they’re doing it.
But if you think the newly-minted major Republican majorities should serve as a roadblock to the Democrat agenda – well, that’s yet another thing […]
Linking arm-in-arm and marching for a cause is EXACTLY what a community organizer does. To protest for a just cause and show solidarity with a aggrieved population against the unjust acts of a violent and tyrannical group is something that an self-avowed activist like Barack Obama would […]
