It’s Worse Than You Think: Why the Administration Must Make the Shutdown Hurt

The word is out, no thanks to the unmanned drones who run the “legitimate media.” This administration is purposely trying to make the government shutdown as painful as possible. You’ve got to give them credit for creativity in this: With only 17% of the monstrosity being closed, you really have to search for ways this is hurting anybody. Even the federal worker trotted out on NPR this morning, who has been relegated to building toy block castles with his young son during the days of furlough, Read more […]

Caesar’s Schools Turning Kids into Good Little Romans (And Why it Can’t be Otherwise)

My job took me inside the local public Middle School, where I saw a large sign in a hallway, emblazoned with the slogan, “When You Believe in Yourself, Nothing is Impossible.” As I thought about it the rest of the day, it occurred to me that this is a classic example of how and why “religious neutrality” or pure secularism is impossible. Even a blathering, non-offensive piece of self-esteem propaganda like this shows why the idea of banishing religion from the public school system is a Read more […]

Congress is Full of Crooks Because Our Pulpits are Full of Cowards!

While visiting Montana, I ran across a church sign that said this: “Congress is full of crooks, because our pulpits are full of cowards.” My immediate reaction was to, as the kids say, LMFAO. And then I said, “Amen!” I got to visit with the elders of that church, and they explained that this particular message had not been terribly well-received by the pastors of the other, local churches. A few of these pastors were worried that the sign had been made with them in mind, specifically. Read more […]

Even if George Zimmerman is Guilty, He Should Probably Walk

In the murder trial of George Zimmerman, the prosecution is trying to paint him as a racist, gun-happy, vigilante, zealot, who stalked Trayvon Martin and murdered him. I’ll be the first to admit it: I don’t know the truth about what happened that night. Neither have I been given access to all the evidence that will come forward. Maybe the prosecution is correct about all of this.  I don’t know. But see, that’s just the thing: No one else does either, if the first few prosecution witnesses Read more […]

Former Wrestler to Bring the Political Pain to a RINO?

Glenn Jacobs is the seven-foot-tall mass of humanity more popularly known as WWE wrestler, Kane. But after the next election cycle, it’s just possible that people may have to call him, Mr. Senator. In glorious defiance of stereotype, it turns out that Jacobs has an agile, nimble brain in his bald noggin. Whoda thunk it? He’s been doing his homework, according to a recent article at the Daily Caller, reading (for fun!) the writings of classic Austrian school economists like Hayek, von Mises, and Read more […]

Breaking: Big Weekend for Arpaio’s Obama Fraud Investigation

We Can’t Afford to Ignore the Tyranny that Exists

Last weekend, the President warned Ohio State graduates to ignore those voices that are constantly warning of tyranny. Of course, as many have pointed out since then, that would mean (among other things) not reading any history books on the founding of America, which would reveal the fact that our nation’s Founders were even more leery of government over-reach than the vast majority of modern patriots. Not long ago, a friend recommended a book of mine on his Facebook page, only to have one of Read more […]

Obama Urges Grads to Ignore Tyranny Warnings

President Obama gave the commencement speech at Ohio State University this weekend. He urged the graduates to reject the voices in the culture that are always warning that government tyranny lurks around the corner. (Video here.) Two things: 1. We need no further proof to justify a chorus of horse-laughter over his claim to being a Constitutional scholar. Because a Constitutional scholar would have read a book or two. Specifically, say, the Federalist Papers and the Anti-Federalist Papers. Read more […]

Colorado to Feds: Please Dominate Us

GOP-leaning political pundit, Mary Matalin, once remarked that my hometown seems to be on The Quest for the Unpronounceable Name. I live in Tucumcari, New Mexico. It started off in the wild West days as Ragtown, and then decided on Six Shooter Siding. Now it’s Tucumcari. Well, in a similar but much more sinister way, my neighbor state to the North, Colorado, seems to be in the midst of a Self-Imposed Quest for a Police State. Not to be outdone by Connecticut, Colorado has imposed some of the Read more […]

The Robin Hood Statists are Coming for You

Statists with Socialist-leaning fiscal policies often get away with invoking the folk hero, Robin Hood. This illustrates a truth I find frustrating. That is, liberals have an uncanny ability to successfully redefine stuff, like words, history, and even popular fiction. I don’t mean that as a compliment, but it is true. I wish our team could do that, frankly. But we are not very good at it. Once they redefine things, it’s well-nigh impossible to put it all right again. If you control the Read more […]

North Korea: Nuke Strike on U.S. “Today or Tomorrow”

Google’s hosted news is reporting that North Korea has approved a nuclear strike on the U.S. Of course, this is the same government that officially promotes a North Korean-ized version of Christianity in which the present dictator, Kim Jong-Un is worshiped as the Christ in place of Jesus of Nazareth in all of the officially sanctioned churches, so one must question the grip on reality way over yonder.  (His dead daddy is the Father, by the way, if you’re wondering how that works.) Still, shiver Read more […]

Administration Refuses to Explain Why It’s Arming a Domestic Agency for War

Surprise, surprise! The most transparent administration in history feels no need to explain its recent purchases of ammunition, including 1.6 billion rounds by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS.) It’s been estimated that’s enough ammo to carry on a war for over 20 straight years. This bullet-buy is in addition to the DHS purchase of 2,700 light-armored vehicles that will apparently be rolling down a street near you….for your safety, of course. Infowars is reporting that Congressman Timothy Read more […]
