Nevada GOP no longer opposes abortion or same-sex marriage [UPDATE]
I’m speechless, but Las Vegas isn’t. They are a finalist in the running for the 2016 Republican National Convention. They even have a website set up at www.lasvegas2016.com.
Maybe they should put that on the website.
Or maybe this isn’t where the party is going, huh?

Diversity or Reversity?
DIVERSITY? “Unleashing the Power of Our Diversity”. That’s the slogan used by some dear friends of mine, to promote their course for diversity education. I suspect that it also describes what many in corporate America hope they’re getting with their investment in diversity education, though the primary motivation for this investment still seems to be avoiding discrimination-related litigation. Sadly, though diversity has been increasingly emphasized | Read More »

Paying for your freedom
In the early stages of the Hobby Lobby religious liberty lawsuit against ObamaCare, the justices installed by Barack Obama, Sotomayor and Kagan, had a little conversation about how the owners of the company could easily get their right of conscience back, if they would just pay a nice fat surcharge for it. ”Hobby Lobby would choose not to provide health insurance at all,” Justice Kagan | Read More »
Ends, and means
“The ends justify the means” is one of the most poisonous ideas of the modern era. I limit this assessment to the modern era because prior to that, means tended to justify themselves. The advent of democracy obliged Ruling Class types across the Western world to do a bit better than “because I said so” to secure obedience from their subjects. The end result is, if anything, | Read More »
Two-In-One Diary ~ The Importance of Religious Liberty/Will There Be A Libertarian President?
This is gonna be something I’ll try to do every once in a while so as to save time. Sometimes the subjects will be related, other times there’ll be as far apart as can be like today. The Importance of Religious Liberty Kristen Powers wrote a ridiculous column calling the religious liberty bill proposed in the KS Legislature anti-gay Jim Crow. While Powers to her | Read More »
Traditional Marriage Fails To Get On Ballot In Indiana
Looks like a state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage in Indiana won’t be on the ballot until 2016. Though I ask traditional conservatives this; what good by this point does it do passing constitutional amendments when they’re being knocked down left and right? First in Utah, then my state Oklahoma, then Kentucky in cases of out-of-state marriages and latest case is in Virginia. There’s | Read More »
Who the hell cares about Michael Sam’s sexual orientation? UPDATED for name mistake
To be honest, I don’t give any damn for sports usually. I occasionally watch the Superbowl and my dad has always been sports fan and in fact went to KSU which is home to K-State football. Other than that though, I’m just not interested in sports and generally haven’t for most of my life. With that all aside though, let’s get to the issue at | Read More »

Oklahoma Lawmaker Proposes Privatizing Marriage
While it took awhile to arrive where I am, I’m full proponent of getting marriage out of government’s tentacles. Though looking at the political landscape I was pessimistic of that happening anytime soon. But this an instance where I’m happy to be wrong. Right in backyard (not literally cause I live in Washington County) is State Rep. Mike Turner (R-Edmund) who’s proposing a bill that | Read More »
3 IL House Republicans Ensure Illinois Redefines Marriage

This redefinition of marriage was made possible because three Republicans | Read More »

Fearing us isn’t enough. We need to show Beltway Republicans that we can reward them.

The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 50: ObamaCare Proponents Want Exemptions, Capitalism Saving Detroit, and Judge Mandates Same-Sex Marriage in Ohio
The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. I’m at half a hundred episodes with this one. Another big milestone. The lawmakers who passed the bill and the unions who promoted the bill all want exemptions from complying with the bill. “The bill”, of course, is ObamaCare(tm). But I thought that the more people who were a part | Read More »
The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 47: A Look at the Supreme Court Rulings; Voting Rights Act, Defense of Marriage Act, and California’s Proposition 8
The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. This time around, I’m taking a look at 3 landmark rulings from the Supreme Court last week; striking down a portion of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, striking down a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and telling California voters that they can’t defend their own constitutional amendment | Read More »
The weed of politics bears bitter fruit
The spooky old pulp avenger known as The Shadow was fond of hissing a lesson at his defeated criminal enemies: The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. The fruit of total politics is bitter, too. One cannot help noticing that everything in our hyper-politicized culture is becoming a teeth-and-fingernails struggle in which the losing side is demonized. This kind of thinking even found its way into | Read More »
We must promote marriage, not just defend it
The Defense of Marriage Act took a big hit at the Supreme Court this week. We really should be promoting marriage, not just defending it. But traditional marriage has been on the defensive for a long time, and it’s not just because of the same-sex marriage crusade. Marriage began looking weak long before anyone thought gay marriage had a chance of obtaining widespread legal sanction. In fact, | Read More »
