The Uncivil War
In American schools the Civil War is a one trick pony. It was all about slavery and that is all it was about. There can be no doubt that slavery was a blight upon the History of the United States. It was incompatible with the inspiring words of our Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, | Read More »
Gosnell guillotine more humane than being drawn and quartered at 23 weeks
Are any non-Gosnell abortions inside the womb, not gruesome? To hear liberals in the media express shock, however belatedly, at how “gruesome” and “grisly” were the murders of newborns by “Doctor” Kermit Gosnell following botched, third-trimester abortions, one would think that your average run of the mill abortion more resembled the merciful deaths of convicted murderers by lethal injection, if not a manicure. But then, Gosnell was also acquitted | Read More »
Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty and (Les) Miserable(s) Obama
The Great Emancipator, a great moment, a great mistake and the Oscars DeVine Law, even during our increasingly strict TV sabbatical of the past several years, always watches the Academy Awards even if we don’t see most of the nominated movies until they appear years later on TNT. We especially miss the days when Billy Crystals and Johnny Carsons hosted the event, but the annual | Read More »
Words: The Aspirations of a Great Nation or the Failure of an Empire
Words are the tools by which a great leader can move a nation, a people or an idea. The power of words, even a single word, can be both the inspiration for greatness or the accelerant of our greatest evils. Words can be the intoxication of wonderment and the damning of our worst impulse. Yet the value of a word in these modern days is | Read More »

Saturday Book Report
Taking some time off from obsessing about the national security, political, and policy problems we face as we careen towards the abyss, I have a book review that might be helpful as you browse garage sales and bookstores this weekend. The book is Killing Lincoln, 2011, by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugas. Unlike many marketing descriptions, O’Reilly’s blurbs this time are very accurate–“With an unforgettable | Read More »
Saving the American Dream?
There’s been a bit of confusion as to the American Dream lately. And by lately, I mean “over the last several decades.” Through the years, both parties have drifted towards the idea of a democracy, and with that shift they have increasingly catered to the majority. After all, if you want a democracy to succeed, that’s how you do business: via majority. There’s a problem | Read More »
Setting the Record Straight about Which Party is More Racist
Which Party did Abraham Lincoln belong to? Was Lincoln for or against slavery? Which Party’s Majority Overwhelmingly Voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964’s the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission? Example: “The Republican Party was not so badly split as the Democrats by the civil rights issue. Only one Republican senator participated in the filibuster against the bill. In fact, since 1933, Republicans had a | Read More »

Thank You, Arkansas
Hey! I am going to admit this on a conservative, Republican website. The only time I ever voted for a Democratic nominee for President, he hailed from Arkansas! That man was Bill Clinton. And leaving aside his sexual escapades, from a personal standpoint I really don’t and didn’t care about that stuff (it was between him and Hillary although I thought he could have | Read More »
Have The Unions Lost The Jacksonians?
A Union Organizer can exert tremendous influence over the outward political life of a member constituent. The organizer controls whether the member keeps his card, which determines that union member’s eligibility for continued employment in a non Right-To-Work state. If the organizer likes President Obama, the worker’s official position had better be “mmm, mmm, mmm…” This cozy suspension of union members’ 1st Amendment rights broke | Read More »
The OFA Peril: Ignore at our own risk
You’ve just won an all expense-paid trip to Hawaii.
NOW do I have your attention? Calling all Tea Party groups, tea partiers, twitterers, Facebookers et al, it’s “Tough Love” time! I’m sure all of you have heard the words “this is serious” and these three little words have become banal to you all. Many of us Conservatives seem to | Read More »
Lincoln The Racist: What Your Teacher Never Told You Part I [Closed]
“If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that.”…Abraham Lincoln.

US Senate 2010 Election Projection 4.7.10: Dem 50 GOP 49 TIE 1
Sorry for my absence the last few weeks, I have been busy sketching and painting new works mocking Jerry Brown. Anyway, onto the projection: I went back the last two weeks roughly and pulled the available state polling and updated the previous projection. The most noticeable changes are the movement of Pennsylvania slightly back to a tie (Toomey leads Specter by a few points as | Read More »

Monomania? Obama’s Increasingly Schitzoid World.
Obama’s world view has room for few things in it other than himself. He came into office with a whole series of puzzling dichotomies orbiting around his condescending head. From “the sweetest sound I ever heard was the sound of the muezzin calling the faithful to prayers in the evening” to “my muslim faith”, (George Stephanopoulos quickly stepping in and saving Obama with “Your Christian | Read More »
US Senate 2010 Election Projection- 52DEM 46 GOP 2 TIE
Back again! This is the current baseline model based on the polls collected over at pollster.com (including those by Mason-Dixon, PPP, and Rasmussen). Subsequent projections will incorporate the latest polling results. Currently the balance of power in the Senate is 59 Democrats (57 Democrats plus 2 Independents that caucus with them) versus 41 Republicans. I currently project that the seats vacated by Dorgan and (originally) | Read More »
What A GLORIOUS Week For Patriots!
What a glorious week for patriots! * Scott Brown wins and the ‘supermajority’ melts away in the sun * With the Scott Brown lesson, the chance of RINOs defecting is greatly reduced – or even eliminated * The health care abomination is dead, dead, dead! (along with Crap & Tax, making illegals citizens, etc.) * The Supremes stand for free speech (and Schumer squeals like | Read More »
