Putting the “Conserve” back in “Conservatism”: A Gentle Response to LidaDe
Modern American Conservatism IS a political philosophy. This cannot be mistaken. In my heart, I want desperately to concur with LisaDe’s interpretation of what Conservatism is at its most basic, first-principles, bedrock core: That we conservatives stand for the individual, and that oftentimes we become a tad frightened of the unknown (and unknowable) components of what resides in the hearts of these same individuals.

That’s 2 More Rounds of Applause than I would have given him…
Two things that make a toxic combination: Arrogance and naivete. Barack Obama is an arrogant, churlish, petulant man. You can usually take this sort of behavior from a John McEnroe, or a Joe Namath, or a Ben Hogan, or Donald Trump because there are so very few human beings that make it to the top of their chosen fields of endeavor. As Dizzy Dean said, | Read More »
An Abortion Solution…
Politics, Bismark was said to have declared, was the Art of the Possible. Well, I guess that depends on which army you send out to enforce the "Possible". Since 1973, after the debacle in Texas that resulted in the most wide-ranging and flawed Supreme Court decision ever, in which an anonymous and pregnant "Jane Roe" was plopped in front of the Justices like a cardboard | Read More »
I Knew Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was a Friend of Mine. You, Senator Obama, are No Ronald Reagan-!
“The Reagan-Kemp-Roth tax cut that the Governor is proposing is so inflationary that most independent economists that have studied it have concluded that it will result in 30 percent inflation..” -President Jimmy Carter, during the 1980 Presidential Debate The left has never gotten Ronald Reagan. All through the 1980 campaign, President Cardigan tried his darnedest to present Reagan as a senile twit, clearly out of | Read More »
I Sure Hope Those Egyptian Protestors Have Filed an Environmental Impact Study!
Well, now, aren’t we just all a-dither and in high dudgeon over the tyrannical, bloodthirsty regime of Hosni Mubarak? That, that…DICTATOR! Ruthlessly suppressing the religious minorities like that, running his iron-fisted economy on the backs of 80-hour work weeks, and the hopeless poverty of the underclass… No, wait, that’s China. It’s hard to tell all these countries apart without a GPS-enabled Blackberry. Now, admittedly, Barack | Read More »
Who cares about the Birth Certificate? I wanna see the Wiring Schematic
So, this is the New and Improved Obama! New Lemon-Scented Obama! Obama 2.0! I’m sure the swells in Georgetown get really geeked for the State of Union Speech. Out here in the provinces, though, it sure has taken on the air of an Infomercial held at the Sheraton Suites: The carpeting looks nice, the furnishings have that deeply polished patina, and the well-tailored suits and | Read More »
From WikiLeaks: The 2012 Presidential Inaugural Address
Editors Note: While the Leak gave no indication who actually won the Presidential election, it did have the entire text of the Inaugural Address. It is up to us to figure out who delivered it: Mr. President, Mr. Chief Justice, honored guests, and my Beloved Fellow Citizens: On March 4th, 1865, Abraham Lincoln stood on the steps of this very Capitol, resplendent in its newly | Read More »
Second Graders Doin’ the Low Down ‘n Dirty. Yep, those SoCons Need to Get a Life!
From the diaries by Erick It all began, according to the Starr Report, on November 15, 1995. This is when, according to President Clinton, he Did Not Have Sexual Relations With That Woman, Miss Lewinski. Well, the pronouncements have finally come down from on high, despite his protestations, that when the ever-game Miss Lewinski fellated the President, he was, in fact, engaged in a "sex | Read More »
The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King had a Dream– Ronald Reagan did, too
On October 14th, 1964, The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King became the youngest man to ever be awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace; he was only 35. Oftentimes we forget how much Rev. King accomplished during his tragically shortened, truncated life. In fact, by the time he’d gone back South to lend a hand to the striking sanitation workers in Memphis in 1968, King was | Read More »
The Only Sexist Term We’re Allowed Anymore: “GunMAN”
Have you noticed that the nut-job murderer in Tuscon isn’t a "Gunner", or "Gun Wielder" or "Gun Criminal"? Just like the recent rioters and various restive sorts in Tunisia, he’s been openly called a "GunMAN ". Not only does the Tuscon Nut Job have a built-in mistrial so generously pre-packaged for him courtesy of the oily-jawed Local Sheriff, I think by enlisting the help of | Read More »
