Why so Socialist? Or, you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
Last year, the mainstream media (un-affectionately known as the MSM) and a number of pundits on the left were caught completely off guard when posters of President Obama began appearing mysteriously in Los Angeles and Atlanta. It was a brief story, but it made a big splash around the internet. Well, seemingly unrelated to the “joker poster story” is a Gallup poll released last week that revealed that over | Read More »
Conservatives and The Butterfly Effect, or, Why Chaos Is Better Than Control!
[promoted by streiff who is hoping Peyton Manning uncorks a flood of butterflies this afternoon.] History has shown us that one person with an idea can change the planet. Whether the planet changes for good (Jesus, Galileo, Bach, Jane Austen, Einstein) or ill (Napoleon, Marx, Houston Chamberlain, B.F. Skinner) depends on the idea. In the 1959 epic Ben-Hur a Roman commander wonders aloud how one | Read More »
Reverse Course to Right Our Economy
Can we just admit that the Stimulus was an $800 billion mistake that did absolutely nothing to help the economy or stimulate jobs? Can we admit that Keynesian economics are, at best, a scalpel being wielded as though a they were a machete? Can we admit that no centralized government planning will ever lead to greater economic prosperity? Because if you really can’t admit that, you really | Read More »
The Great Lie of Partisan Tolerance
The Free Dictionary defines ‘tolerance’ as follows. tol·er·ance 1. The capacity for or the practice of recognizing and respecting the beliefs or practices of others. That’s what tolerance used to mean, before Orwellian progressives performed their cunning linguistic tricks on it. Now the class-obsessed left has divided tolerance into two classes: partisan (good) and repressive (bad). The dirty secret is that both their meanings are | Read More »
Happy Anniversary, President Hope N. Change
Well, here we are at the one year anniversary of Barack Obama, “The One We were Supposed To Be Waiting For” (The One), Mr. Hope N. Change (that’s mine), being sworn in as President of the United States. He had a huge majority of his fellow Democrats in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. He had an agenda. Eventually, he got a super-majority | Read More »
What A Failed Auction Abroad Should Tell America
The United States of America has spent the last year embarked upon a dangerous experiment; of dubious provenance, with no foreseeable outcome that doesn’t end up in tears. Our nation has shifted towards statist policies; at truly alarming rates. So rapidly have we nationalized that our open-minded and wonderful President forgot that he owned the corporation that produced Scott Brown’s pick-up truck when he mocked | Read More »
WE KNOW ABOUT HITLER. WE KNOW ABOUT WWII. HILMAR VON CAMPE WAS THERE !
Saturday Jan. 23, 7-9pm, Covenant Classical School, Concord NC Here is an excerpt of what you can expect: “The Nazi State and society was built on a foundation of godlessness and lies. The global confrontation we face today is between that same godless foundation and God’s undeniable truth. The battles we face in the political arena today are the major symptoms of this underlying battle. | Read More »
“Life and Death in America” – Will We Learn From History’s Voices?
I love Rush, Ann, Glenn, and Dinesh, but nothing beats history for giving us a glimpse of things to come if radical Democrats are left unchecked. It is with absolutely no apology that I post more from Nien Cheng’s book, Life and Death in Shanghai. “One day, I was told by one of my remaining students besides Da De that Zhang Chunquiao, the Party boss | Read More »
Just as Jefferson’s phrase, “…all men are created equal…” referred to certain inalienable rights and therefore equal opportunity, his “…wall of separation between church and state…” (not found in the Declaration or Constitution I hasten to add) was simply an assurance that one denomination would not be favored over another at the federal level. Yet, both have been perverted by leftist weenies to mean something entirely different. | Read More »
2010 Conservative Revolution Not Another Reagan Revolution
2010 is a pivotal and important year for we conservatives. Every election year we are always told by someone that, “this is the most important election ever.” So we get out and do our duty, vote for the candidate of our choice and watch as things in Washington pretty much remain the same but with a few different faces. Almost as if our vote had | Read More »
Worker’s Motherland, a progressive song for the Midwinter Festival
To the tune of Winter Wonderland Shift bells ring, are you listening, In the streets, blood is glistening. Revolution in sight, We’re toiling tonight. Progressing to the workers’ motherland. Gone away is our history, Here to stay is equal misery. We sing labor’s song, As we go along, Progressing to the workers’ motherland. In the meadow we can build a snowman, Then pretend that he | Read More »
Our “Duty” Stated in the Declaration of Independence
As the snow falls today, I think of General George Washington and his men who persevered the most horrid weather conditions to secure this country’s liberty. You see, I live in an area where the battles were fought and fearless, good men died–and even running everyday errands is a reminder of the American Revolution. Sure, each state has its history, especially down in the South, | Read More »
the Healthcare bill would be Obama’s Enabling Act
Why are Barack Obama and other Democrat leaders so intent on passing a government takeover of healthcare now Now NOW? They must know that costs will rise and the quality of care will fall, right? They must know that Obamacare would destroy the economy, right? Of course they do. But, they also know that the federal government would tighten its grip on the nation. They know that Obama’s czars and other appointees would | Read More »
The Unenviable Catholic Conservative
“Redistributive justice” has a clear ally in the Catholic Church. Those of us who oppose socialism are therefore placed in the unenviable position of contenting with Catholic doctrine. Pope Benedict attempted yesterday to convict “rich” industrialized nations to assume responsibility for the environmental affects of their citizen’s lifestyles. Summarizing the pope’s address, Reuters writes: “… technologically advanced societies must be prepared to encourage more sober | Read More »
Robin Hood: Prince of Patriots
I find it interesting that the English folk hero Robin Hood is best known as a thief. Given his tendency to dispense loot to the poor, Hood’s thievery may seem iconic and exemplary to those who advocate the kind of “redistributive justice” spoken of by President Barrack Obama. However, when one delves deeper into the folklore, Hood seems far more iconic of something entirely different. | Read More »
