Newsflash: Reagan is Dead-God Isn’t
I originally posted this piece on RedState, but I’m going to elaborate more in this post. My Short Conversation with Mary Fallin I’ll admit, I’m not real savvy when it comes to Mary Fallin, but I can tell you she is the representative for Okalhoma’s fifth district, has voted in favor of Big Oil, voted against a Climate Change Committee, and is an avid supporter | Read More »
Obama’s Completely Undeserved Nobel Peace Prize: ” Thanks for Nothing Mr. President!”
The following is from my Examiner.com page. The original can be found here. Author’s note: The deadline for submissions for the Nobel Peace Prize was February 1, 2009. Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm Mmm Mmm) took office January 20, 2009. The Nobel Peace Prize soiled itself today. Sure, for years this award has been a laughing stock fraud of a prize given to the loudest self-promoter. | Read More »
Imagine… A Republican Peace Prize..
What if the Republican Party annually popped up the name of some particular leader who promoted “peace through strength, gave them an award and touted to the world the great achievement of that (presumably Republican or conservative) person? Why certainly they could base it on “words alone” using a precedent already established for such things. Why not? If the award recipients have not already shown | Read More »
The Economic Bill of Rights
On July 3, 1987, President Reagan proposed an Economic Bill of Rights, founded on four basic economic freedoms and proposing ten steps to ensure those freedoms. The text of the Economic Bill of Rights can be found here . Given the rise of the Obamaist philosophy of governance (which, as I see it, melds elements of Marxism and Fascism), I thought it would be a | Read More »
A Warning from the Past from the Gipper
Almost 50 years ago, a B-grade movie star and TV actor made a 10 minute recording warning the American people about the coming of socialism to our great nation and how it would establish its beachhead in the guise of ‘universal’ medical care. That actor would later go on to become quite possibly the greatest President of the 20th Century. His name was Ronald | Read More »
The Road to Resurrection is Paved for Conservatives [Closed.]
I publish a relatively popular Indiana website discussing matters related to politics, sports and public administration and policy… [If you simply must read the rest of this Conservatives in the Mists diary, feel free to check it out here: h ttp://democratictribune.com/conservativeresurrection.html […in the meantime, the rest of us have better things to do than rush to save a worried academic from the consequences of the | Read More »
What happened to the Good ole Days?
Reagen said during his administration that we should go back to the good ole days. To me the good ole days were the 80’s. I really miss those days. The music the carefree times. Of course I was a teen and a young adult in those days. I was recently made aware that there is supposedly a difference between “White” hearing and “black” hearing about | Read More »
Babbling Joe Biden, the Deficit, and a Little Math
Babbling Joe Biden is running his mouth again on topics about which he knows little, such as the need to spend to avoid bankruptcy. This bit of brilliance comes in the same week in which the deficit for the first nine months of FY 2009 exceeded US$1 trillion for the first time in history. These pieces of news made me wonder as to just what | Read More »
Citizen Soldier Action: Write a Play
ACTION: Write a Play. “Citizen Soldier Handbook: 101 Ways for Every American To Fight Terrorism” by Michael Mandaville www.CitizenSoldierHandbook.com The theater is still an extraordinary forum to stir thought and get out new information under the First Amendment. When it’s permitted, of course, by the local powers that be. Plays resonate with the public and can cause controversy – perhaps with such incredibly radical lines | Read More »
How free do you want to be, America(ns)?
I was challenged this morning with a very personal question: “How free do you want to be?” It was unrelated to the subject of politics, but, as with all deadly serious truths, has political implications. As I consider the question personally, my answer is “I want to be as free as I can be, as God would have me be.” I know at a very | Read More »
Reagan MUST remain DEAD if the party is ever to succeed! Also conservatism has NOTHING to offer.
So says Jeb Bush during the NCNA (National Council for a New America) during its inaugural event. From the Washington Times piece (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/may/03/gop-listens-in-drive-to-thrive/)… Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Saturday that it’s time for the Republican Party to give up its “nostalgia” for the heyday of the Reagan era and look forward, even if it means stealing the winning strategy deployed by Democrats in the | Read More »
The Party of No? eeeegaaads YES, WE SHOULD!
Republicans have been trying to find themselves and stage a comeback. They have been suffering from a coordinated attack by the left wing talking points being called the party of no. From Obama to his minions and MSM talking heads. Even our own are falling into the trap set by DEMS, allowing them to define the game. At a moment when the country needs our | Read More »

Cultural battles lost despite, not because of, Dobson and Reagan
The failures of all conservatives for the last 45 years, not just the failures of Reagan’s social conservatives for the past 30 years, have led to the present circumstance. Recent remarks by James Dobson of Focus on the Family (referred to below) concerning the culture battles/war have been picked up on by the Drive-by Media to declare victory over the supposed theocracy-seeking social conservatives in | Read More »
Peck’s evil and Obama’s narcissism
(note: skip halfway down this lengthy entry to “Political Implications” for the application to Obama) WAS reading the Wikipedia entry on psychiatrist M. Scott Peck the other day and imbibed of this well-written and fascinating exposition of Peck’s writings on the subject of evil: Evil Peck discusses evil in his book People of The Lie: The Hope For Healing Human Evil.
