The Wise and Foolish Builders
The conclusion or summary of “the greatest speech ever given”. 24″Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But | Read More »
A******s on our side are a big part of our problem
So today I’m out chopping wood, and I see some people cutting through the yard. They are back in the woods a bit, and I figure they are just the neighbor’s kids. A bit later I hear what sounds like a shot. Then I walk around the front and find their van. These jerks were cutting through what is obviously a residential area and hunting | Read More »
What goes around…
“Nothing more simple,” returned the count. “I had known the famous Vampa for more than ten years. When he was quite a child, and only a shepherd, I gave him a few gold pieces for showing me my way, and he, in order to repay me, gave me a poniard, the hilt of which he had carved with his own hand, and which you may | Read More »
Bob Herbert, There You Go Again….[Updated]
As some of Redstate’s regular readers are aware, I have previously written diaries about Frank Rich and Nicholas Kristof. Well now, in part three of my series titled “Get to know a New York Times Columnist”, I will dissect Bob Herbert. Yesterday, Bob Herbert wrote a column that I felt needed a response. He started out by complaining about MN congresswoman Michelle Bachman (mind you, | Read More »
Creeping Creepy Holiday
Halloween is coming around again and nobody seems to be suggesting that it offends anyone as many suggest every year that Christmas does. No, Halloween is a pagan, nondiscriminating celebration of ghoulishness and death, and so, being an increasingly liberal nation that embraces nondiscriminating ghoulishness and death over righteousness and piety, Halloween has become a member in good standing in our national pantheon of holidays. | Read More »
Is Governor Patrick Thinking of Leaning Right?
Governor Deval Patrick says people in Massachusetts may freeze to death this winter. Here’s my advice: become a Republican. Republicans created global warming, and we don’t care to fix it. Republicans also want to drill for oil. Could Gov. Patrick possibly be leaning to the Right?
Red vs. Blue Instead of Blue vs. Gray
I just had the weirdest thought….this country has not been as divided as it today since the War Between the States, A.K.A. The Civil War, some 140 + years ago. We are not divided over the issue of slavery or states rights like back then. Our divisions today include: socialism vs. capitalism pro-abortion vs. pro-life anti death penalty vs. pro death penalty open borders with | Read More »
In Defense of Redstate…..
In today’s New York Times, columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote an op-ed about how Republicans are trying to “otherize” Barack Obama by playing up rumors of him being a secret Muslim or even the anti-Christ. In his column today, Kristof listed Redstate (along with Jerome Corsi) as one of the Republican institutions that was attempting to “otherize” Obama with the secret Muslim/anti-Christ rumors. Kristof even placed | Read More »
Who do you really want running our country: Brooks & Dunn or Heart?
Promoted, with my own observation: you current and former pop stars out there, think for a moment. Do you really think that the McCain campaign minds it when you loudly and explicitly disavow yourselves from him – and, thus, identify yourselves as being for Obama? I mean, you did catch the entire “celebrity” meme, right? – Moe Lane As yet another indication of the over-the-top | Read More »
Views From The Hill Side
Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican, Independent or Libertarian and Green Party member this election season, by all means resurrected and for the first time brought forth issues and discussions that in the long run help us shape and reshape our country into that more perfect union our founding fathers visualized 230 some odd years ago. It’s funny how things have a way to come | Read More »
Culture11: Radically Taking on Culture
Okay so had to have noticed that liberals dominate entertainment, culture and most things that are deemed “cool” in society (aside from guns, motorcycles and other badass endeavors of the sort). And Barack Obama sure isn’t oh-so-close to becoming President because he’s a great leader or has good credentials. He’s where he is because he reached into American culture and – *he got to them. | Read More »
Frank Rich is an Awful Person
I’m sure that you all remember the so called “disastrous” Senate race of former Virginia Senator George Allen back in 2006. However, it is extremely difficult to run a successful race of any kind when the mainstream media (particularly The Washington Post) is literally waging a jihad against you, but I digress. Anyway, you all are probably wondering what George Allen and Barack Obama have | Read More »
Intellectually Excavating Indiana Jones Unearths Epistemological Artifacts
As a discipline, archaeology examines the artistic and technological remains of various cultures in the attempt to learn more about them. Often from these objects, students learn about more than the subject’s material nature but also insight into the beliefs and paradigms important to the human species at a particular time.
Dobson moments vs. Evangelical Election Days
Evangelicals have been the most loyal GOP voters since Ronald Reagan brought them into the party in droves in 1980. They left their previous apathy or Democratic Party allegiance to vote for Republicans based on issues, not instructions from media appointed “leaders.” Given that, I was quite amused at all the teeth gnashing by certain libertarian and/or secular leaning conservatives last winter when Dr. James | Read More »
It Was Disney
So I’ve been out of town the last few weeks. The family and I took a huge road trip vacation in our brand new, cherry red, fuel efficient Chevy HHR. Yes gas is expensive. However, I’d saved up some gas rewards and MyPoints and managed to cover a lot of it. Yes, 12 hotel nights are expensive, but I’ve saved up hundreds of thousands of | Read More »
