What Christmas Reindeer Antlers Say About America

    My wife is from France. In the four years we were on opposite sides of the ocean before we got married I had the good fortune to be able to visit the country a number of times. Much of that time I was working at Outback Steakhouse and always envisioned opening a unit in Paris. (I know, for most people that’s epicurean heresy, but consider | Read More »

    The Perfect Conservative

    He was not born into a royal family, but He left a royal impression on the world. For 30 years, He learned the ways of the world without becoming of the world. He then changed the world for the better. He led without a mandate. He taught without a script. His common sense parables filled people with promise and compassion, His words forever inspiring. He | Read More »

    Twas Obama’s Night Before Christmas

      Twas the night before Christmas and in The White House, Obama was scheming, that liberal louse. Muslim Crescent moons were all hung round with care, on, “Holiday Trees,” since no one thought Christmas or even to dare. Michelle was upstairs all tucked in her bed with visions of obese kiddies dancing in her head. The kids tucked away and her mom in napsack, and | Read More »

    This Time of Year

    I wrote a column in today’s Macon Telegraph, my local paper, about this time of year. I figured I’d pass it on here. You can go here to the Telegraph to get the full thing. There’s just so much going on this year that I think it is sometimes important just to stop and reflect on things.This is an unusual Christmas in the Erickson household. | Read More »

    Let’s Take The Language Back.

    For far too long the left has managed to control the language of the political debate… not that there’s been much debate with this Congress. The left are masters of the non-specific. It’s usually a word, or a turn of phrase, that serves to divert conversation and debate away from an objective not their own. Assigning predominantly Republican cities and states the color red, as | Read More »

    A senator with a backbone keeps ‘Christ’ in Christmas

    Here’s one that should drive the Left crazy. The Tulsa World News reported yesterday Senator Jim Inhofe (R) Oklahoma isn’t going to ride in the local parade of lights because they changed the title from a Christmas parade to a holiday parade. Here’s the forum link I found, and by way of full disclosure was directed to by a close friend who runs that forum. | Read More »

    Which is it Mr. President?

    Is the Nigerian terrorist an ‘isolated extremist’ or part of an Al Qaeda plot?  3 days after the attempted bombing on Christmas Pres. Obama made the claim that this nut was an isolated person.  Now, after gathering and reading the facts he has acknowledged he was part of a larger plot. Instead of waiting until he had the information, he jumps the gun.  Just like | Read More »

    Waiting for Sim: Christmas Eves With the Definitive Scrooge

    by Michael Mandaville www.CitizenSoldierHandbook.com When growing up in Los Angeles, a singular delight was getting the TV Guide in the Sunday paper and scouring it, pen in hand.  My movie search.  In the sixties, Los Angeles had the greatest number of TV channels in any city: 2-4-5-7-9-11-13.  In trips to San Diego, the Mid-West or anywhere else, you’d be lucky to get two, maybe three | Read More »

    Report: WH in full CYA/BDS mode over Christmas attack.

    A quick survey of priorities: In 2001, the American government’s response to a successful series of terrorist attacks was to look outwards to see who to hit for this*. In 2009, the American government’s response to an only-because-we-got-lucky unsuccessful terrorist attack was to look inwards to see who to blame for this. (H/T: Nice Deb) I think that, all things considered, I prefer the first | Read More »

    Merry Christmas from Ronald Reagan

    Often overlooked when contemplating the life and presidency of Ronald Reagan are his strong faith and his deep understanding that it is the “twin beacons of faith and freedom [that] have brightened the American sky,” as he eloquently described in his first Christmas address as President, on December 23, 1981. In that address, he said, “At this special time of year we all renew our | Read More »
