Hot Take from Vox.com: the American Revolution was a mistake
Upfront, let me say I disapprove of link-whoring and click-baiting. Because of that, and because that is what Vox.com is doing doing with this article I am not providing a link to the article because that would simply reward bad behavior. On the other hand, the hipster-kale-with-quinoa crowd actually believes the stuff they read in Vox.com so I’m not going to let it pass. The | Read More »

Mainstream Pols Get Trumped and Berned.
When You’ve Had It With Politics As Usual The American People have gazed long into the swirling abyss.* They stared long and hard and discovered that Hillary Rodham Clinton, Martin O’ Malley, Chris Christie, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 90%, and a plethora of other disgusting, slug-like midget vote suckers were | Read More »
George Takei: Racist. Bigot.
What is the difference between George Takei and Ku Klux Klan member? The Klan member can pretend to not be a racist while on television. George Takei is a racist. There is no other way to put it. He might as well have his valet send his white robe to the cleaners to have it pressed and starched while his gardener makes a nice, flammable | Read More »
Rick Perry is the Republican Who Finally Said It
Yesterday, Rick Perry gave a speech on economics to unveil his plan. Perry, of course, created 1.5 million jobs while the rest of the nation lost 400,000. In delivering his speech, Perry did what so many of us have wanted — someone to point out that our first black President has left the black family worse off. His whole speech was rock solid, but the | Read More »
The Red State advantage for families
One of the mainstays of the the left is making obviously false statements about conservatives and then using that strawman to prove their own superiority. No where has this been more prolific than on the subject of family life. Over an over the left claims that Red States have higher divorce rates than do the socialist states in the Union. When left wing academics Naomi | Read More »

Bob Corker wins Oscar in Failure Theater
Tennessee Senator Bob Corker continues to amaze with his virtuosity at Failure Theater. Just to review the bidding: Bob Corker arranged to strip the Senate of its ‘advise and consent’ authority given by the US Constitution. He did this by allowing Obama to negotiate a nuclear surrender deal with Iran and present it to the Senate where it required two thirds vote to disapprove it rather than | Read More »
The New York Times Celebrates Its Declaration of Surrender
The New York Times has published their own ode to Independence Day—a Declaration of Surrender to Islamic terror—while freely offending a billion Catholics who don’t shoot journalists for publishing offensive art. Roundly criticized for publishing a portrait of Pope Benedict XVI made entirely of 17,000 colored (non-lubricated) condoms after refusing to publish the cartoon from the cover of Charlie Hebdo last January, the Times standards editor Philip B. | Read More »
Republicans must use Donald Trump to move the ball forward
Donald Trump isn’t a serious candidate for President. Sure, he has the notoriety and the money to prop himself up and pretend to be a credible candidate, much as Ross Perot bought his way to a lot of noise but no electoral votes. But the only reason people pay attention is to enjoy the spectacle. He’s not a serious competitor. The worst thing for any | Read More »

The Cozy Community of Oppression
In these post-Supreme Court ruling days, there has been an extreme amount of praise for the wonder and power of judicial decision. Winning sides, whomever they may be, usually gush over those who ruled in their favor. Despite the outcome announced on June 26, ushering in a “new era” for the gay community, plenty among their ranks seem to view the legal ruling as bittersweet. | Read More »
Always Play On Offense
Rush Limbaugh often says it. It is a maxim to remember. Always play on offense. I hope Donald Trump takes that to heart. In the past week, the political press that already hates the GOP and thinks all Republicans are racist have used Donald Trump’s comments to go on the attack. Additionally, it has allowed NBC and Macy’s to sever ties to Trump that would | Read More »

Polygamy is here.
Now that a small group of people have succeeded in trashing several millenia of human culture for the sake of satisfying their libidos and egos, a curious civil war has broken out. It it between those who actually believe in “marriage equality” (and to grasp this concept you really have to buy into the old time progressive mantra of “all cultures are equal”), that is, | Read More »
A Speech to Win The GOP Nomination
The Republican Candidates in 2016. “The Crown of France Was Lying In The Gutter. I Just Leaned Over and Picked It Up.” – Napoleon Bonaparte Is there an actual Conservative left in America? Does anyone in the herd trolling for the 2016 GOP Nomination actually want to stand up against post-modern American Progressivism? Will someone, anyone stand up to the Paris | Read More »
Yes, I Am One of the Pod People
Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance: the five stages of grief. As a Christian, I’ve gone through these over the last few years, and now I’ve arrived at acceptance. I denied that God could remove His hand from our blessed country, America; that divorce among Christians was just as prevalent as the non-religious. I denied that our youth were ever more questioning Christian teaching and doctrine, and | Read More »

Hillary’s Big Union Problem: Members like Socialist Sanders over ‘Untrustworthy’ Clinton nearly 8-1
Hillary Clinton has a union problem. Actually, with her Benghazi, Clinton Foundation, and e-mail scandals, she has more than just a union problem. However, since no Democrat can win the White House without union support, it is the union problem tham may pose a bigger problem than all the others…And, it has her campaign very worried. Although Hillary Clinton may have once thought that, after | Read More »
