Mea Culpa Again (Sort Of).
We have a lot of great readers out there and we cherish every one. Recently, we have had a few unplanned and unavoidable gaps in our publication. Just a day here and there, but I thought some clarity was called for.

I have a full time career outside of writing. It demands a lot of my time normally, but during the winter months especially. Dee, the very capable editor of this column, also has a full time career and has proven to be a gifted writer filling in for me. It takes several hours to write, edit and distribute our articles to our affiliates, who then distribute to their readers.
With the intense work schedules there are times when we just don’t have the time. Our first choice is to go to the archives and see if something there will work. Then there are the times, such as happened this last week, when we couldn’t even do that.
We were under no illusions when we started this column that it was going to be easy. Our sole purpose is to get the Conservative Constitutional message to as many people as we can. As anyone who has read my columns for any amount of time will tell you, I’m an equal opportunity opinion editorialist. I’m just as quick to jump on and excoriate the Republicans as I am the Marxists… quicker in fact.
The situation and the economy demand nothing less than our dedicated vigilance. Conservative principles have gotten us this far… a political comeback and reversal of epic proportions, for a party who had been written out, walked over and buried by virtually every liberal political pundit (and not a few of our own) in the country.
Here’s where it gets tough for the Republicrats. Had it not been for the Patriots, had it not been for the Conservative blogosphere and the new media, the Republicans would not have had the prayer of the proverbial snowball in hell. I think they’re finally starting to get the picture, given some of the things we’re seeing in the Congress.
We’re proud of the small part we’ve been able to play in advancing this great cause.
Semper Vigilans, Semper Fidelis
