    Whether It’s Deb Fischer or Don Stenberg, It’s About Jon Bruning

    I like Don Stenberg. He’s a friend. He’s been a great leader in Nebraska. I’d like to see him in the Senate. But over the past month, as Stenberg and Bruning have gone nuclear with each other, Deb Fischer has run up the middle and may very well win the Nebraska Primary today.I’d gladly support her.It seems that in the withering back and forth fight | Read More »

    On Fairness & Moral Cases

    Another day, another socialist takes to the New York Times to denounce capitalism. With his criticism — he is a professional critic, which is a job no socialist society would really see value in except as an agenda of propaganda, but he thrives in the capitalist society he condemns — he premises it on some sort of morality. He mocks Christians for embracing capitalism with | Read More »

    Where Is The Balance?

    In the past week, I’ve been called a bigot, a hater, had people wish I died, and had people wish Christians had died, been rounded up and killed, or experienced their own personal holocaust.All this came from proponents of gay marriage. The media won’t cover most of this. The media sees most stories as victims versus victimizers and those who support gay marriage are the | Read More »

    Communists, Cop-Killers, and Cocaine: Why the Washington Post Focuses on Romney Instead

    Now this is just silly. The Washington Post can’t be bothered to worry about Barack Obama’s college years, college transcripts, communist friends, cocaine use, or cop-killing plotters in whose living room he first launched his major political career, but they can get in the really way back machine to 1965 and Mitt Romney’s high school years.Mitt Romney cut a hippy’s hair at his preparatory high | Read More »

    The Media and Barack Obama’s Pauline Kael Moment on Gay Marriage

    If you listen to Barack Obama’s statement to ABC News yesterday you’ll hear something not reflected in all the transcripts that went out yesterday. He said his administration gave up the legal fight to defend the Defense Against Marriage Act. It’s actually the Defense Of Marriage Act.Obama claimed DOMA made marriage a federal issue and it should be a state issue. That’s a gross mischaracterization | Read More »

    A Terrible, No Good, Awful Night for Barack Obama

    One initial point to ponder: if the No-H8 campaign tries to fire up in North Carolina as the No-A1 campaign, people will wonder why they are campaigning against steak sauce. Probably won’t happen. North Carolina did not pass a ban on gay marriage as the media reports. Rather they refused to allow their definition of marriage to be changed. The marriage definition was put into | Read More »
