If Idiots Stop Voting for Bad People, Maybe Politics Will Change…Maybe

“I am very short-sighted, and if I don’t like a situation I take my glasses off.” – Jenny Eclair If I were to make a list of the things that bother me in the world, it would be longer than Santa’s. But for a moment, allow me to focus my attention on one particular annoyance. I hate when people dismiss politics by saying something to the effect of “Oh, well it’s all crooked anyway.” These are the people who either don’t vote, thereby contributing nothing to our democratic process, or worse, they Read more […]

Why Obama’s False Claims of Christianity Matter: Character

Character matters. We all know this. Character is a critical quality for a leader. The great majority of our leaders have little to no character. John Boehner, who retaliates against those in his own Party who defy him, has little character; Mitch McConnell, who lied to his fellow Senators, has little character; and Hillary Clinton, whose rap sheet of misconduct and outright criminal behavior would make Tony Soprano uncomfortable, has no character. But it’s Barack Obama whose character I’m most Read more […]

Barack Obama, the Toddler in the White House

“Great ambition is the passion of a great character. Those endowed with it may perform very good or very bad acts.

Sure, they can rule, they can reign, they can preside over, and they can manage, but they cannot lead. To truly lead—whether a nation of millions, or many fewer—one must possess a mastery of the human spirit, which can only thrive when Read more […]

Learning A Lesson From The Democrats…No, Really

“In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.” – Thomas Jefferson Standing on principle can be difficult, mostly because in situations in which one must stand on principle, one is a minority among a crowd of enemies. If everyone shares the same beliefs, there is never a reason to act defiantly according to your own systems, because no one stands against you. Being part of a majority is easy. When one falls into the category of minority, however, the Read more […]

Obama’s Blamepology

“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me. We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them…” – Barack Obama Excuse me if I’m not very satisfied with that “apology” from our president. A sincere apology is one that accepts moral responsibility for what one has done in a direct way. The president did not do that. What Obama did in the above quote was essentially apologize for the fact that people are losing their insurance. Read more […]

CDC: US Murders 5% Fewer Infants!

As I was stuck in bumper to bumper traffic on my drive home for Thanksgiving, I had a lot of time to think. On a day that millions of Americans are thinking about and celebrating the blessings in their lives, the CDC put out its annual report detailing the abortion rates in the United States. According to the CDC, in 2009–the most recent year for which the information is available–abortion rates dropped the most in a decade; down by 5% from the previous year. That is to say that only 785,000 Read more […]
