CNN: Black Conservative Senator Doesn’t Deserve to Be Part of MLK Event

The only thing worse than a white conservative is a black conservative. The left excoriates them probably more than any white person. They’re mocked for “acting white,” and they’re called “Uncle Toms.” They’re seen as traitors to the “cause.” So much for a colorblind society where people are judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. If you’re black, you’d better support Obama, socialized medicine, high taxes, gun control, abortion, and Read more […]

MLK Anniversary Excludes Only African American In US Senate

Edmund Burke said: “To read without reflecting is like eating without digesting.” To live without reflection is to live without thought. And to live without thought is not to live at all.

Power isn’t sentient; it does not exert influence Read more […]

They saw his rant as the condescending diatribe of a priviledged elite against his lower-class neighbors. Many people called him an Uncle Tom or Read more […]

$15 an Hour for Fast Food Workers—Entitlement is Killing Us

Steve Maraboli said: “A sense of entitlement is a cancerous thought process that is void of gratitude and can be deadly to relationships, businesses, and even nations.” I’ll be the first to admit that when I hear people mention that their generation–the one that fought in WWII–is the best generation; I become annoyed. How can one generation be defined as “the greatest,” when compared to another? People are people; every generation has greats and not so greats within it. However, upon examination Read more […]
