American Exceptionalism, and the Last Full Measure
I re-post this from a couple of years ago, because, 1) like so many things it needs to be said from time to time, and 2) Bernie had written a passage (below) which is about as outstanding as anything I’ve read about American exceptionalism. I’ve also posted a companion piece, side by side as both touch on aspects of the Left I think we need | Read More »
Call it a Moment of Silence
In recognition of the vegetative state in which the Constitutional Republic known as the United States of America presently finds itself. Considering the worldwide ramifications of such a demise, should it come, I’d say four days of mourning is actually a little short…dont’cha think? Is this really what people think was intended when we ratified the Constitution? Open-air fraud, hundreds of millions of dollars in | Read More »
Do Americans Still Have What It Takes? I Say Yes!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL… I have a friend who insists that Americans have been emasculated. That somehow we just aren’t what we used to be. I take umbrage with a world view that American exceptionalism has somehow fallen by the wayside. It’s very true that the liberals would LIKE to see an androgynous Homo-Americanus that they could mold into their perverted Utopian one-size-fits-all Marxian | Read More »
A Man Crush On Marco Rubio
Yesterday I went to see Marco Rubio at The Villages. Now to set this up, I have more or less been supporting him over Charile Crist because I am mad at how Uncle Crist has been running this state. To support Mr Rubio, I thought I needed to see this guy in action and he didn’t disappoint.
Is such government involvement in our lives permissible under the U.S. Constitution?
Today Walter Williams writes and excellent column, American Idea. I encourage you to read the entire article. He basically describes how the major difference between Americans and the rest of the world is the healthy distrust and suspicion Americans have had for government. Unfortunately these sentiments are not shared as much by today’s Americans. This distrust is evident in the Bill of Rights, separation of | Read More »
Cary, our suave Capitalist
Mark Steyn wrote a love letter, or at least a respect letter, about Cary Grant recently. It’s excellent, a winding tale of the man’s humor and greatness, achievement and memorable moments. I’m a huge Cary Grant fan. You have no idea how huge. Thus, I had to send Steyn a response. Here is his article. I definitely recommend it. And for you, my committed and | Read More »
Mr. President, Do You Believe In American Exceptionalism?
OK, I’m sure that most of you are familiar with President Obama’s bow to the King of Saudi Arabia (a country where women are second class citizens and where it is legal to stone them to death). I have embedded a video below from Hot Air titled, “A Tale of Two Bows”. This video clearly demonstrates President Obama giving a much more deep and respectful | Read More »
A Case for American Exceptionalism Updated
I tightened this piece up a bit. Exceptional nations and exceptional individuals have the same two characteristics: They are strong. And they are well balanced. Just as strong and well balanced individuals have a greater capacity to utilize their goodness, so do strong nations. We are the most powerful nation in the history of the world. And incredibly restrained, given how much power we have. | Read More »
