Newt Gingrich: the Chameleon

First let me say, I like Newt Gingrich, or at least, I’ve tried to like him as he’s morphed into a political chameleon who talks out of both sides of his mouth.  Gingrich is articulate and shrewd, but the author …

Governor Christie: a lump of coal in union stockings

Filed under: Featured Conservative,Politics In General - 08 Dec 2010

I know, there’s a lot going on, what with this lame cluck Congress tossing pandering bones to every victim class (gays, Hispanics, the class-warfare crowd) imaginable, and Heir E. Reid firming up his national embarrassment agenda. Don’t get me …

Halloween’s Liberal Message

Filed under: Liberalism, Marxism & Communism - 31 Oct 2010

This Sunday, little goblins will approach my door and walk away disappointed. Call me curmudgeon, but the mindset whereby “something for nothing” is expected and unearned has infiltrated society, and, thus, I don’t “treat.” Yes, sharing is admirable, …

Political Correctness: Morality’s Poison Pill

There is much talk, and much to say, about what ails America, but one problem, certainly, is political correctness, which along with “tolerance” has become entrenched in daily life. Tolerance and its cousin, diversity, sound wonderful and as a …

Glenn Beck, Restoring Honor, and Leftist Delusion

Say what you want about Glenn Beck, a polarizing figure on the American landscape, but don’t argue that last weekend’s rally, his spiritual lollapalooza, lacked miracles. No, angels didn’t descend from the clouds (though, if you saw the geese …

FTC does Pravda (be afraid) …

Here we go again. In keeping with the Groundhog Day theme of this administration, the one that has me approaching news sites with dread, the Federal Trade Commission is out with its draft on the “reinvention of journalism.”

Memorial Day: where were the flags?

Filed under: In The News - 06 Jun 2010

Now that President Obama is back from Chicago, fresh from declaring June, 2010, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender month, I’d like to memorialize Memorial Day. It’s not dead (yet), but like other American traditions (marriage, a strong military), it’s …

House rep BLASTS Calderon

Quietly, there is an American voice, protecting American values, and conducting himself as an American should. It is that of Tom McClintock. In response to Felipe Calderon’s parroting of progressive talking points, this California House rep verbalized his …

The Red and the Blue Corner of American Discourse

Divisiveness is on the increase in America. As President Obama barn-storms Mudville, mocking any and all who oppose him, civic polarization reaches new highs. Nowhere is this better seen than in the comments sections of articles. Here debate …

The “Right” of Spring

How ironic that on the first day of spring, the House of Representatives passed health care “reform.” When the Senate passed its version on Christmas Eve, 2009, the irony was thick, for I believed the bill—The American Affordable …

A Nation Divided
