Words Used to Mean Things – Then Came Government
We are a nation founded upon and (allegedly) governed by words. Beginning with – specifically, foundational-ly – the Constitution. Every syllable was by our Founding Fathers debated and carefully crafted. To ensure a limited, enumerated government, maximum freedom for We the People – and a document that clearly, concisely laid out these parameters. The Constitution is a “living, breathing document” – but with the amendment | Read More »
Voters Aren’t Disenfranchised, They’re Just Lazy
If you haven’t noticed, an election is coming up. We’re 16+ months away, and the push is on (again) to tackle the perceived reality that is known as voter discrimination.

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 »

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.
