    Let’s Raise Taxes on Profits

    For the entirety of the 2012 campaign, President Obama, the Democrats and thier willing allies in the media all bemoaned the profits of big corporations.  President Obama and his allies all believe that their victory on Tuesday is a mandate to raise taxes.  I say we take him up on the offer. Combined, the corporations of Disney, Time Warner, CBS/Viacom and Comcast earned roughly $919,452,000.00 | Read More »

    Yet Another Post Mortem

    We got our arses kicked.  There is no other way to say it.  As we look back on the wreckage of this presidential/senatorial campaign, there is a lot of opportunities for improvement.  Here are a few thoughts (added to the many already out there) on how to get off the carpet and get back into the fight: 1)  Conservative wins, Crazy Does Not:  We’re all | Read More »

    A Tale of Two Cover Ups

    At the outset, I confess that I am a Penn State football fan and have been since about age 7 or 8.  That said, I fully accept that, on some level, Joe Paterno failed to do all that he could to protect children from being brutalized by Jerry Sandusky.  To what extent will, eventually, be fleshed out through the judicial process. However, the point of | Read More »

    Say What?

    No doubt that, by now, most of you have read Rick Santorum’s statement which suggests that, if Mitt Romney were the nominee, a conservative might as well just allow Obama another four years.  I like Rick Santorum.  I even voted for him when I lived in Pennsylvania.  That said, with that statement, I believe he is officially done as a presidential candidate and, I believe, | Read More »

    And So It Begins…

    Finally Finally, we get to start selecting our nominee, tonight in Iowa.  All of the pundits have had their say.  Now, however, the most important part of the political process gets to have their say:  The Voters.  To those in Iowa who peruse this site, I say good luck tonight and thank you.  Thank you for caring enough about your country to come out on | Read More »

    A Thanksgiving Thought

    Both riches and honor come from You, And You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might; In Your hand it is to make great And to give strength to all. “Now therefore, our God, We thank You And praise Your glorious name ..” … 1 Chron 29:12-13. “And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications | Read More »

    Resigned to Reality

    In watching the debate last night, I was struck with a realization of our predicament as a party and as a movement.  After watching the debate, I came away with the thought that only three of the candidates are ready to be President, from a knowledge and competence standpoint.  Mitt (not Willard) Romney, Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman.  There is no doubt that each has flaws.  | Read More »

    On Intellectual and Moral Honesty

    I am not a biblical scholar.  I’ve read some verses, try to be a good Christian, etc.  One of my favorite parts of the Bible is not judging, lest ye be judged.  It is an admonishment against being a hypocrite.  It is, perhaps, one of the most valuable lessons in the Word.  That said, the society in which we live seems to breed hypocrisy.  It | Read More »


    The poet laureate of my generation, Mike Tyson, once famously said “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face.”  This breathtakingly accurate axiom is on full display as we watch Herman Cain’s campaign flail after being punched in the face.  So far, Mr. Cain is demonstrating that he cannot take a punch.  Therefore, he should not be our nominee for President. At | Read More »

    Qaddafi’s Dead and I am Glad

    I’d like to take this moment to express my joy that the murderous, dictator thug Qaddafi has been shot in the face.  As awful as the pic was to view while eating lunch (a Subway meatball sub, no less), I rather enjoyed the pic of one of the world’s most brutal, evil men becoming worm feast. That said, I will NOT be one of those | Read More »
