Was Brendan Eich removed to get closed source DRM into Firefox?
It’s quite a theory, and I’m not sure what to make of it, but via Instapundit I ran into the allegation that the real reason Brendan Eich was removed as the head of Mozilla wasn’t the homosexual “marriage” issue at all, but rather that he stood in the way between Hollywood-friendly restrictions called Digital Rights Managment (“DRM”) being added to the open source browser Firefox.Read More »
The Irony of the GOP Polling Advantage
As the November midterms draw near, we are beginning to see a growing wave against Democrats, much like we witnessed at this time in 2010. A new Pew poll gives Republicans a 4-point edge on the generic ballot test, which is significant given the fact that Democrats usually have a slight advantage even in a 50-50 year. They also found that Republicans have a crushing | Read More »
The Religion of Politics
What goes on in politics is of the utmost importance to how we live our lives. “You will be made to care,” after all, about numerous things. Marriage equality, reproductive rights, and whatever other keywords exist for pushing an agenda that is rejected by a lot more people than gets reported. I would be a hypocrite if I denounced people focusing for large portions of | Read More »
Christians Side With Mammon. Mammon Sided with Barabbas.
No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24 “One thousand nine hundred eighty-one years ago today, the world chose to spare a criminal and crucify God himself.” 1,981 years ago today, the world put God on | Read More »

They were told that this site could not be displayed, because of a conflict with the values of the Mozilla corporation, and they were suggested to visit another site. We put that message up, because we wanted to remind people that the totalitarian impulse | Read More »
Mozilla CEO becomes untouchable for 2008 Prop-8 contribution
The trend is clear: any words, actions, contributions, or even the hint that you might not support the left’s agenda of complete worship of the LGBT lifestyle, will disqualify you for any honor, privilege, high position, or job with responsibility. It doesn’t matter if it was yesterday, last year, or 30 years ago. If you haven’t “repented” of your sin of disagreeing with the agenda, you are excluded.
Untouchable.Read More »
The Obama administration wishes to wreck your quiet enjoyment of March Madness.
This administration has never wanted any of us to have private spaces in our lives, anywhere. Everything must be political; nothing may be free of subtext.Read More »
An Upside Down World
In December of 1865, the several American states ratified the thirteenth amendment constitutionally ending involuntary servitude in the United States. In the twenty-first century, Americans are coming full circle. In a number of states, a black man can again be forced by the government to work involuntarily for a white man. Not since the nation eliminated Jim Crow laws during the civil rights era have | Read More »
The Monster In The Mirror II: The Culture America Increasingly Deserves
Demotism — Rule in the name of the People….Democracy and Communism are seen as two types of Demotism. Reactionaries view Demotism as a form of mob rule, where politicians pander to what they see as the popular will, rather than making their own decisions as independent leaders. (HT:Moreright.net) God will never permanently bless the demotic culture. Perhaps Christ Jesus will cease to abide it. When | Read More »
Andy Stanley’s ( @AndyStanley ) Quote is Troubling
Kirsten Powers and I will no more agree on this topic than we do on the merits of calling Wendy Davis “Abortion Barbie.” That’s fine. We probably disagree on most issues, though I appreciate her finding common ground with me and so many others on the cause of life for children stitched together by God in their mothers’ wombs. But I am really disappointed in | Read More »
Are YOU Ready for Americans Against Amnesty Day? Ideas Welcome.
Are you mad as hell at the Republicans and their plan for amnesty by any other name and won’t take it anymore? What will you do about it? Face it, the GOP is literally thumbing their nose at us, We the Voters, for flirting with this ruinous policy when we’re on the brink of winning the Senate and stopping the liberal policies of this president. We the Voters are responsible for the House takeover | Read More »
Libertarian Rocky Mountain High Taxes and Big Government thanks to legalization
by @willstauff “I’m for legalizing pot.” Oh, well how Libertarian of you. The same Libertarians who want to join conservatives in auditing the fed, abolishing the IRS, and reigning in the overreach of Government want to legalize pot. “But Will, legalizing marijuana is clearly a libertarian principle.” Is it now? If that’s the case then why are so many articles written from marijuana.org to every | Read More »
More often than not, I am a pretty relaxed and laid back person. I don’t really dwell on issues, I rarely hold a grudge, and things that probably should get me worked up just don’t. But lately I’ve been fixated on and can’t stop dwelling on an issue that seems to keep cropping up. Most recently it cropped up with the Duck Dynasty issue. There | Read More »
Creating a Constitutional Litmus Test
It’s understandably hard to focus our attention directly on all the fronts the radical left has opened up in their truculent effort to transform our Republic. They are erasing our borders, disrupting the markets, infringing on our liberties, appeasing our enemies, and taking over major sectors of the economy. Most of us would like to direct the lion’s share of our energy towards the economic | Read More »
