To what do we pledge?
Like many others, I’ve been contemplating in disgust the celebrity “pledge” video for Barack Obama (warning, viewing may induce vomiting). And thinkers and writers from our own aglanon to Andrew Brietbart have written wonderful and appropriate responses to the celebs in question. So I’m not going to do that here. Not really. Instead, I’m simply going to share what I learned from the video. Or, | Read More »
January 20th 2010 ; A Year To The Day
A family of four from San Francisco is on vacation, driving across The North-Central-South Union in their Venezuelan-built hybrid-and-bio-fuel sub-mini-three-wheel-compact. They see a sign advertising “Museum ahead, the last of an original place of it’s kind” and decide to have a look at the place. It’s the only ‘mom & pop’, ‘brick and mortar’ operation left on the continent and it’s located in the deep | Read More »
“Right to life” vs. “License to kill”: A Libertarian Case for the Pro-Life Position
Promoted to the front by Erick based on a recommendation from several readers. The abortion issue involves vast deeps of confusion about the nature of rights, freedom and the lack thereof, choice, license, responsibilities, and obligations. In this essay I attempt to cut away all the confusion to get to the heart of things from a classical liberal approach. We hold these Truths to be | Read More »
Wake-up call…….. Fantastic column by a teacher here in South Florida.
Since I work in the same school system as a contractor, I’m going to make it my business to find this gent and shake his hand. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/8412 Wake Up Call By Dr. David Lazerson “Mumbai teaches us that the hour is late, but not too late to stop this madness. The world cannot afford the luxury of simply waiting to respond to each individual act | Read More »
At one time or another most all of us have been guilty of it. We have sat back and allowed events to take place around us, either because we didn’t concern ourselves with the event or we didn’t believe that we could prevent it from taking place. I have often times done that exact thing – nothing!! Let me introduce myself. My name is Glendon | Read More »
Reality Part II
Our social contract ,The Constitution, is clear in absolute restraint of the Federal Governments authority. There are specific powers enumerated to Congress and the Executive. Everything else is retained by the States and the Citizens of the States. The 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution are the “Forgotten Men” if you will. They are completely absent in our political discourse. These two amendments are | Read More »
Taking the party back. My personal manifesto.
I’m sick to my stomach about the state of the nation. Obviously Republicans have been destroyed in the last two elections in a public rejection of epic proportions. When you lose this many House seats over two consecutive elections and you lose nine states that you won just four years prior, something is wrong on the inside. It does us no service to blame the | Read More »
Fight To Promote, Defend, and Protect Our Constitution
For 219 years, from 1789 to 2008, Americans have been choosing who will defend their liberties and uphold the Constitution of the United States by entrusting one of our own with the presidency of this nation. In a matter of days, Americans will exercise the greatest liberty afforded to them, their right to elect our nation’s next chief defender and preserver of liberty and our | Read More »
I came up with a few statements that I want you to consider. They are in the form of “I believe…” statements. As in, “I believe in equal protection,” etc. I want you to read them and consider whether or not you agree with these statements.
One man gave his life for Christians and now is your time to vote to preserve LIFE!
I am not a Religious Right Conservative BUT I am a person who believes in LIFE, LIBERTY and the pursuit of HAPPINESS…..I believe that our Constitution guarantee’s that right and it starts with the most innocent of us all CHILDREN! If we elect a man who voted 4 times in the Illinois Senate to allow babies BORN ALIVE after an attempted abortion to die in | Read More »
Straight Talk from Ayaan about the Free Market
Recently Ayaan Hirsi Ali has written an excellent article, Does the Free Market Corrode Moral Character? in conjunction with her participation in the John Templeton Foundation’s series of conversations among leading scientists, scholars, and public figures about the “big questions” of human life. There is right now a lot of conversation about what should be the direction for the country in terms of being on | Read More »
A Set of Values, We Should Never Accept
I am a long time participant in this “community”, though often not prolifically read that much anymore. So I would designate these interspersed textual offerings more as public cogitation than front page competitors; a circumscription well deserved in my mind. However it would be a monumental mistake to demote my views as designated or devoted to any particular point of view. More correctly, I advocate | Read More »
A Call to Arms, My Friends
My fellow Americans, we stand today at a critical turning point in society and in our history. On one hand, we have a national hero, who has served his country with great honor his entire life. He has always thought of and fought for what is in this nation’s best interest and has always put US first. On the other hand, we have a man | Read More »
…the nature and extent of Sen Obama’s left-wing agenda doesn’t seem to have penetrated into the awareness of the American public…They just don’t associate him, the “Progressive” movement and the Democratic party with the kinds of infringements…that have come to be seen as “normal” in everyday life…things such as…parents being threatened for spanking their kids…public libraries that let paedophiles in – while keeping Christians at | Read More »
