I like reading about stuff other people think is boring, and writing about stuff that maybe six people in the world care about. But man, those six people are cool. Follow me on Twitter @lifeofgrace224

    Obama Punk'd Again by Iran: Does He WANT Them to Get The Bomb?

    Any 3-year-old knows the difference between a parent shouting “one, two…….” and never getting to “three” versus grandpa who doesn’t put up with bad behavior, but it seems the Obama administration got bested by a toddler. Iran nuclear talks will continue “for the next couple of days,” a senior European diplomat said, effectively extending a Tuesday deadline set just a week ago. “We are still | Read More »

    New Hampshire’s Inside Joke: We Hate Vermont, so Bernie Sanders for President

    New Hampshire's Inside Joke: We Hate Vermont, so Bernie Sanders for President

    New Hampshirites—at least the pure ones—are barn-sour curmudgeons who choose people they think would jam a stick in the the rest of America’s eye, especially in Washington, D.C., which might as well be Moscow when you’re looking at it from Rochester or Amherst or even Wolfeboro (which has somehow become an enclave of the rich and powerful, because the Romneys like to vacation there). And | Read More »

    Her Majesty

      As Moe Lane noted, Her Majesty is not content to be treated like royalty–Hillary demands unfettered fealty to her Crown by her minions of the press. In all fairness, that’s not a rope. It’s the zip line Hillary uses to glide right past, not taking any press Q’s… pic.twitter.com/tW46PksCSY — Brad Thor (@BradThor) July 4, 2015 This brought to mind a song that I think | Read More »

    CJ Pearson: Threat to Democracy

    CJ Pearson: Threat to Democracy

    Congratulations my dear liberal friends. You have nimbly, skillfully, artfully, and cleverly stymied the most menacing, pernicious, and malignant threat to freedom to inhabit the Internet since Al Gore invented it. Yes, friends, you have stopped a conservative powerhouse in his tracks, causing him to cravenly retreat to his sanctum to lick his wounds.  So complete is your victory that the quick-witted Republican you have | Read More »

    These Colors Don’t Run

    These Colors Don't Run

    We celebrate the red, white, and blue today, because it’s July 4, Independence Day. If you haven’t noticed, flags are a big deal in the media lately. Unless you’ve hidden your head in a bag, or lived under a rock, you couldn’t help but see story after story about flags. Our flag’s design goes back a long way: on June 14, 1777, the Second Continental | Read More »

    George Takei: An Intellectually Honest Liberal in a Dishonest Tribe

    George Takei: An Intellectually Honest Liberal in a Dishonest Tribe

    The conservative world exploded in outrage over George Takei’s blatantly racist remark calling Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas “a clown in blackface,” but they all got this story wrong. Takei is a very rare bird: an intellectually honest liberal. I’m not going to cover in detail what Takei said and what Justice Thomas wrote.  You can read about it here, here, and here. To sum up, Justice Thomas wrote | Read More »

    The New York Times Celebrates Its Declaration of Surrender

    The New York Times Celebrates Its Declaration of Surrender

    The New York Times has published their own ode to Independence Day—a Declaration of Surrender to Islamic terror—while freely offending a billion Catholics who don’t shoot journalists for publishing offensive art. Roundly criticized for publishing a portrait of Pope Benedict XVI made entirely of 17,000 colored (non-lubricated) condoms after refusing to publish the cartoon from the cover of Charlie Hebdo last January, the Times standards editor Philip B. | Read More »

    Donald Trump May Be the Great White Hope the GOP Needs

    Donald Trump May Be the Great White Hope the GOP Needs

    The mainstream media is descending on The Donald like buzzards on carrion—and their instincts for a fresh kill are rarely wrong.  But don’t discount Donald Trump. Erick Erickson offered sage advice for the tempestuous-tempered billionaire-cum-politician to stay on offense, but I expect that Trump will rebound very soon. The “stay on offense” advice works best for politicians, but Donald Trump isn’t one.  He’s a unique | Read More »

    Yes, I Am One of the Pod People

    Yes, I Am One of the Pod People

    Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance: the five stages of grief.  As a Christian, I’ve gone through these over the last few years, and now I’ve arrived at acceptance. I denied that God could remove His hand from our blessed country, America; that divorce among Christians was just as prevalent as the non-religious.  I denied that our youth were ever more questioning Christian teaching and doctrine, and | Read More »

    Let’s Make All Non-Political Giving Tax-Deductible

    Let's Make All Non-Political Giving Tax-Deductible

    Time Magazine wasted no time in calling for the end of tax exemptions for religious institutions, with writer Mark Oppenheimer firing the initial salvo.  Oppenheimer writes the “beliefs” column for The New York Times, in which he studies religious matters with the alacrity of a medical examiner performing an autopsy: God is dead, let’s find out what killed Him. I have a different view on the | Read More »
