Directions To Plato
It seems that we have, in our seat of government, a renewal of an old perspective concerning the governance of this nation. Plato wrote in his book; Republic, that governance of the state is only good if those who govern have justice as the center of their philosophy. We, in this nation have come full circle, if we settle on Plato’s definitions of government. We | Read More »
From Here To Inevitable
The signal fires are burning. The laws are on the books. Washinton DC is rancid with the stench of corruption. It seems inevitable that life in America will change under the auspices of the Democratic Congress. If the health care legislation passes, and we move on to Cap and Trade, the immediate impact will be the strangulation of all freedom and liberty in our beloved | Read More »
Who Will Speak For Us Now?
We are the citizens of the last free nation on Earth. Who will speak for us? As of now we are even subjected to the onslaught of injustice from the ICC. The International Criminal Court now has the power to investigate, arrest, and prosecute any American citizen without any interference from our government. Thanks to an executive order by President Obama, we are now governed | Read More »
In the Presence of Lady Liberty
We see her carrying her torch, ever vigilent, ever watchful in the night. Lady Liberty serenely moves about with Grace and Truth coming along side her tall, magnificent frame. She seeks out those who will stand with her as she guards the nation from destruction. With Grace and Truth holding her up with their strong arms, she cries out, like Paul Revere, riding through the | Read More »
Those of us who were teenagers and young adults during the Eighties have been described as shallow, narcissistic, and youth-obsessed. All of this is true. As a member of the Baby Boomer-Generation X crowd, I can see how such criticism is warranted. I’m in my forties now, and in the midst of my mid-life crisis. I look back on a life of shallow endeavors, the | Read More »
When one of my grandkids birthday comes around, we give presents galore. When mom and dad have a birthday, we give them a hug and tell them we hope to see them next year, and laugh. With the passage of this healthcare bill that hug and hope mean even more. We hope we don’t get sick, especially after we go on medicare. We hope our | Read More »
No Utopias for Me, I’m an American!
I am an American; a birthright I am very proud to declare at every opportunity. As an American, I want to be free to live in the random world God has created for us. I don’t want it to be free of chaos or danger or injury or failure. That’s what makes the world what it is. And, I’m accepting of that frenetic state of | Read More »

Obama Care has been, without a doubt, Eye opening to say the least!
When I stop to think of the history and all the side stories that have resulted from this disastrous piece of legislation I have to shudder and wonder is this just a highly visible example of what is, or has become, business a usual in Washington D.C.? I mean think about it, the Representative for the Majority has basically stated that despite knowing that a | Read More »
Uncle Obama’s Extortion Racket
Uncle Obama has gotten ahold of your credit card. And he’s amassing charges on it that – you – not he – are liable for. You can call the fraud line, you can call the police, you can call any politician or government agency, and they will all tell you the same thing. Shut up and pay up. Since misery loves company, you might feel | Read More »
Christmas and the Party Spirit
The party is starting to really heat up and spirits are soaring. A rally is fomenting and anxiety is skyrocketing. The health care bill is looking like death warmed over and subsistance farming is a growing business. If healthcare doesn’t pass many of our Democratic friends will have to actually find a job. Of course, most will become lobbyists, you know, the one person who Obama | Read More »
Joe Barton’s Folly – Congress Has Nothing More Important to Do Than to Run College Football?
I honestly don’t know what the hell happens to these people when they get to Washington. That city really is a deadly disease. Congressman Joe Barton (quasi-R – TX) apparently has so much time on his hands that he is teaming up with like-minded big-government nationalists to try to tell the American people and colleges around the nation how it must determine it’s college football | Read More »
Advancing American Greatness – Two Dramatically Different Views
Last week, President Obama convened a “job summit” at the White House. According to an article in the Washington Times, Obama took this action because he was “Facing rising unemployment rates and uncertain results from the stimulus bill.” When you consider that the list of invitees to this meeting did include liberal economists credited with shaping the $787 billion stimulus package, union leaders, environmental advocates, | Read More »

The purpose of a business is NOT to provide jobs!
The purpose of a business, small or otherwise, is NOT to provide jobs to the populace. The purpose of a business is to make money for the owners. For some reason, President Obama and the Democrats (i.e. liberals) believe that the existence of a business is to provide jobs regardless if they are needed or not. This sounds a lot like a government job. Hire | Read More »
The Law and the Attorney General
We have seen an explosion of antagonism regarding the decision to bring KSM and his cohorts into New York City to stand trial. This is not by accident either. This decision by Attorney General Holder, and President Obama to bring these terrorists to New York is one of three things; Incredibly naive, reckless disregard of the law, or treason against the people of the United | Read More »
The Reunification of the Mugwumps and the No-Nothings
In the quiet of a fall evening in November I see a movement in the woods. It is the Mugwumps and the No-Nothing parties of 1860 reunifying with a ritual burning of a liberal Democrat, in effigy, of course. They are discussing major events and the strategy to win. The problem is that no one knows whether they are the semiliberals, or the semiconservatives. They | Read More »
