The Most Dangerous Soul Alive
Rebecca Solnit wrote in Salon.com that “The Age of Capitalism is over”. Oh my, where to start? At the beginning seems a good place as any. Solnit was thrilled to hold a land auction notice from post-Jacobin France—Thermidorian France for the historically-minded. Thermidorian France was no more compassionate to live (mostly, to die) in than the Jacobin version which oversaw the execution of tens of | Read More »
Obama’s Media Harem and the Sore Loser
I think CBS stands for Caress Barack’s Scrotum. Saturday’s puff piece based on the President’s Hawaii vacation pool report asks the question “why Obama loves golf, basketball and all things athletic” without actually answering it. In fact, Obama’s love of “things athletic” would make him a glutton for punishment, because he’s not very good at any of those things. It’s a fairly typical Hawaiian presidential | Read More »
It’s Time to Demilitarize the Police
Habersham County, Georgia is nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, just south of stunning Tallulah Gorge. The biggest city in the county is Cornelia, with 4,160 residents. The entire population of Habersham County would fill slightly more than half the seats in the Georgia Dome. Yet Habersham County Sheriff’s Department has a SWAT team, complete with flash-bang grenades, one of which exploded in | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh TRIGGER WARNING
It’s amazing what the Left and their media bootlickers latch onto. On December 23, Rush Limbaugh commented about a few lighthearted stories, you know, the kind of stuff a radio host talks about just before Christmas. One of those stories involved a Sony email about casting a new James Bond. RUSH: Back to the lighthearted Stack. One of the e-mails that leaked in the hack | Read More »
Why God Used Angels To Announce Christmas
Erick wrote a post yesterday titled “To Understand the Beginning of the End, You Must Understand the End of the Beginning” which beautifully described God’s covenants with Abraham, Moses and Israel, and the connection to Christmas. I posted a comment posing the question “Did you ever wonder why God used angels to speak to Mary and Zechariah and Joseph?” with a possible answer. This post is the expanded version of that answer with lots of Scripture to back it up and an interesting twist at the end.

The U.S. Has a Drone Problem
Nowhere is the tension between technology and safety evident than the “drone wars”, pitting the FAA against Hollywood. So far, Hollywood is winning. Last September, the FAA granted permits to several production companies to operate commercial drones. The drones must weigh no more than 55 lbs, fly no faster than 58 mph, and no higher than 400 feet above the ground (AGL). FAA rules for | Read More »
Christmas As An Atheist Holiday
I’d like to thank the atheists for making my point: when we tell our kids that Santa is real, and that he exemplifies the spirit of Christmas, we are practicing atheism. Practical atheism. We are taking a day dedicated to celebrating a uniquely Christian event and making it a fairy tale.

The University of Michigan is a bastion of free speech, according to its own public affairs department. But only if you’re a liberal.

North Korea Attacks America’s Moral Cowardice
A rogue nation targeted a multinational corporation and won. North Korea has almost certainly ordered the massive cyber-attack on Sony Pictures, stealing and publicly dumping enough data to make a dent in the company’s stock price. North Korea cannot challenge the United States militarily, despite what movies have portrayed. Regardless of their saber-rattling, and America’s reduced presence on the Korean peninsula, a real attack of any substance against our ally | Read More »
