Red Herring – Arizona immigration law
The Drudge Report ran a headline on Saturday of a Seattle police officer kicking and cussing at a prone Hispanic man who had been stopped as a potential suspect in a crime. Moments later the officer apparently realized that he had the wrong person and let the young man up. Later the cop tearfully apologized. Stories like this one demonstrate clearly what everyone in the | Read More »
Barack Obama exposes the truth…
With all of the rancor in the media, online and on main street, it might be easy to forget why we are talking in the first place. The fundamental reason the level of discord has risen to where it is is because the number of people who are recognizing the threats to their liberties from the progressive agenda are growing every day, and they are | Read More »
Liberty, legacy, freedom and treasure… Hyperbole?
After reading a number of my posts, a friend suggested I was prone to hyperbole. She said that I spent too much time focusing on what was wrong with the government and not enough time inspiring people. While I understand the power of inspiration, I couldn’t have disagreed with her more. Inspiring is what someone wants to be on Sunday in the locker room before | Read More »
The Death of American Exceptionalism
Seldom are the choices in life black and white, particularly when it comes to politics. If choices were that simple, it would be easy to accept Barack Obama as good simply because he has a disarming smile and easier to vilify Rush Limbaugh simply because he comes across as rather arrogant and suggests that he wants the charismatic Obama to fail. When it comes to | Read More »
Guns, butter and other Democrat fairy-tales
For much of the last 30 years the Democrat left in the United States has been professing the superiority of the socialist western European systems where the governments provide (or force what’s left of the private sector to provide) cradle to grave support in the form of everything from child care to health care to month long vacations to generous social security benefits. What those | Read More »
Now that ObamaCare has been signed into law, Americans are wondering what they can do or where they can turn to find a roadmap out of this imperial quagmire Washington has foisted upon us. I would suggest picking up a copy of the Declaration of Independence. While the Declaration is not the document upon which our Republic is built, it provided the clarion call for | Read More »
A call to arms… or at least to the phone!
Tomorrow Congress is slated to take what will be the single most important vote that has occurred in your lifetime… Or at least since December 8th of 1941. Barack Obama is a modern day Julius Caesar and ObamaCare is his Rubicon. Just as Caesar’s crossing of the fabled river foretold the end of the Roman republic, Barack Obama’s the passage of ObamaCare signals the eventual | Read More »
America: Who are you going to believe? Me or your lying eyes?
You’ve probably seen the cartoon where a woman comes home and finds her husband in bed with another woman? The man looks up and says “No, I’m not cheating!” and follows that up with his favorite Groucho Marx line: “Who are you going to believe? Me or your lying eyes?” That is exactly what America is facing today with the Democrats and ObamaCare. They think | Read More »
Greece and the Ghost of America Yet to Come
Wouldn’t life be grand if it could show you exactly what your future was before you lived it, thereby giving you the opportunity to make adjustments before that reality played itself out? Imagine what you could do. You could turn Vegas into your own private ATM. You could learn all the answers to the questions on Jeopardy – is that show still on the air? | Read More »
Bring on Reconciliation
If there were any lingering notions that Barack Obama was a pragmatist, Monday’s release of the White House’s plan for Obamacare should finally put them to rest. Previously the President could hide behind the thin veil of the fact that the disaster we’ve come to know as Obamacare was actually crafted at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue. No longer… He has embraced the plan | Read More »
