The Tea Party And The Politician
By Tom Tillison Orlando Political Press The tea party movement is fast approaching it’s two year anniversary. As many of you will recall, it was on February 19, 2009 that Rick Santelli stood on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade and made his now famous rant. Of course, any self respecting Ron Paul-ite will quickly tell you the movement pre-dates the ‘rant heard ’round | Read More »
When Government Becomes Destructive of These Ends
By Dr. Jeffrey “Jake” Baker November 10, 2010 The recent vote tells us a lot about the willingness of our countrymen to radically change their course in history. But the important work of preserving freedom still remains. Our Founding Fathers broke their political ties with England because they believed the following: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, | Read More »
Is Your Word Just Another Word?
Do we truly mean something when we say it? Do we believe in honor, in our yes being yes and our no being no? It’s one thing to give a caveat or when you make a proclaimation or statement; it’s something more weighty when you say, “I will…” To be sure, no one is perfect, and daily we all say things we either don’t follow | Read More »

On silos and the healing power of tea
The concept of a silo is a rather simple one: A vertical tower or a shaft dug in the ground where items of like types, usually freshly harvested grains, can be kept. Silos are useful for storing large quantities of like products. The millions of kernels of corn, wheat and other grains harvested on a given day are placed into a particular silo so that | Read More »
Dogs v. Politicians. The winner: Dogs
My beloved Australian Shepard, Goddard, died yesterday after a relatively long battle with lymphoma. He will be missed. I logged on to RedState this morning and began to think of Goddard and the RINOs, the three ring circus currently residing on Capitol Hill and the general tone of politicians these days. It dawned on me that my dog would have been a better representative than the | Read More »
Lord Monckton is a brilliant man and he is RIGHT…
It appears that Lord Monckton has called for the U.N. to be SHUT DOWN and the perpetrators of the Global Warming SCAM be arrested and criminally prosecuted….I agree. Their LIES would destroy Western Civilization “Monckton said that those who are threatening to shut down economies, bankrupt nations, and deepen the problems of the third world by implementing draconian policies in the name of global warming | Read More »

A Law to Be Named Later, Nevada makes things harder
Nevada’s legislators have long desired to do something that they haven’t been able to do. I understand. It happens in baseball. Two teams want to trade a player, but can’t decide who to trade for that player. So, one team hands over, say, their left-fielder for “a player to be named later” from the other team. These deals require tremendous trust. I wonder how much | Read More »

The Roots of Corruption: How did we get here, and how do we get out?
(cross-posted at Society for Independent Thinking) Though it is not completely without a sense of schadenfreude that I watch the Chicago Democrat party implode, this recent Blagojavich scandle has gotten me thinking about the nature of political corruption in general. And about the simple fact that, as much as we’d like it to be, the Republican Party is not immune to the corruption of power, | Read More »
2008: The Year of Great Humility
From the diaries, by Erick. As I was thinking about looking back at 2008 and all of the events that have gone on around the world this year, one word came to mind: humility. Bear with me while I explain this, because it might be easy to miss what I’m saying. When I say “humility,” I’m not thinking about how those the world watched most this | Read More »

Why I’m against the bailout, or whatever you want to call it.
It’s semantics, after all. In political terms it’s called: kicking the can.It’s not the money, although it’s a staggering sum. It’s the root causes. Nobody wants to talk about those in any productive way. It’s the finger pointing and partisanship. We hear, let’s just pass this thing and work on the causes later. We have heard this time and again with every new crisis that | Read More »
