Free Speech? Only If You Speak The Language Of The Left
Universities are supposed to be areas where there is open debate and free speech is prized…unless you deviate from the leftist ideology. From the CarmiTimes.com: The University of Illinois has fired an adjunct professor who taught courses on Catholicism after a student accused the instructor of engaging in hate speech by saying he agrees with the church’s teaching that homosexual sex is immoral. The professor, | Read More »
Not Cynicism, Reality
One of our local RINO’s has decided to whine about the growing failure of the populace to acknowledge all the great and wonderful travesties our government has thrust upon us. He wrote an apologist piece in the DFL Party-run StarTribune that bemoans a general sense of governmental ineptitude, arrogance and incompetence felt by the citizenry. Since I have once again been suspended from commenting at the | Read More »
Crib Notes vs. Teleprompters
Sarah Palin, a.k.a. the woman that the mainstream fears more than global warming, I mean, climate change, wrote some notes on her hand for her speech at the recent Tea Party Convention. Not only does the mainstream media feel that this shows that she is the “r” word, the administrations’ press secretary Robert Gibbs felt the need to make his own joke about it, publicly. | Read More »
Pusillanimous Lack of Leadership by President Obama at West Point
Last night at West Point, President Obama had a golden opportunity to demonstrate that the world’s only superpower is lead by a tough, determined, world leader, able to make difficult decisions. Instead, President Obama chose to take a hedged, triangulated position between those in America that support the war in Afghanistan and those that oppose it. There was more nuance in the President’s address than | Read More »
Sarah Palin gets it Right again
When I first heard about Governor Palin’s decision to resign as Governor, I was surprised, and curious to find out why. I was afraid she was quitting politics for some reason, even though there was no reason that was apparent. Having heard her eloquent speech, having read her comments that she gave via ‘tweet’ and facebook, it is apparent that my fears were happily unfounded. | Read More »
I Reject Left v. Right: I am a Conservative Liberal
I am a Conservative Liberal. That’s a strange thing to say. What does this mean? Does this mean I’m in the middle, a squishy centrist? I was once a registered Democrat. Then a registered Independent. Now I’m a registered Republican. Does that make me right-wing? No. Am I left or right or center? No. None of these describe me accurately. Left and Right are both | Read More »
Moving Away From the Religious Right
This is my first diary but one that I will be expanding on in future weeks. I would imagine reactions to this will be harsh and critical, but insight does not come from patting ourselves on the back or galloping happily down the same failed paths. It is important that we find our soul if we are to regain any of the federal branches of | Read More »
Time to move Onward and Upward
Seeing how we lost tough races this past election I think it has to do with a few reasons. These reasons include the erosion of the conservative views and lack of trust that our elected officials hold in office. We need to fix these problems in order to get our ideas out in the open. We need to re-energize our base and find out why | Read More »
C17Wife has encouraged me to speak up.
WARNINGThis is a Biblical perspective and intended for Christians and their ilk. May have adverse effects on trolls. After reading the numerous comments on C17Wifes’s diary and having much personal rumination over this election cycle I thought I would share my personal and biblical perspective on God’s will. I do not claim to be a biblical scholar and I do not profess to be a | Read More »
TRICK? OR TREAT?
Every election cycle in the past has always had some sort of an October Surprise. Kind of a GOTCHA! from each political party. (Consider it sort of an early Halloween trick, if you will). Some memorable;some,not so much. This week,thus far I would speculate that the Obama camp’s October Gotcha! was the announcement that Colin Powell would be honoring the Soci-Democratic party with his support | Read More »
Why McCain For Today?
Since America is voting in less than a month. I need America to make the right choice to continue on to 2009-future without making America have a bad face. Since we are still in the middle east and the new commander in cheif will come to the White House there will be good and bad decisions on hand from citizens like us. SO THE BEST | Read More »
Obamalogic – Premies Aren’t People
Barack Obama is committed at all costs to keeping all forms of abortion at any stage in the pregnancy, legal. One of the interesting consequences of this position is that it necessarily involves denying that a child is a person unless that child was full-term and intentionally delivered. For instance CNS News reports that Obama declared in 2002: Obama went on to question whether the | Read More »
