Houston: When Americans Answer a Silent Cry

The disaster in Houston has proven again something that reasonable people intuitively know – that in a crisis, neither skin color nor who your great-great-great granddaddy was matters. In the floods, blacks worked to save whites, whites worked so save blacks and they worked together to save everybody they could. Caravans of people looking to…

TINSTAAFL

I have a conservative leaning close friend, the son of whom is a college graduate, served in our military and is now a progressive Democrat and active in politics. I asked him why, with a conservative upbringing and his life experiences, his son decided to devote his life to a progressive political ideology. The answer…

Aspirations

Something that was running through my mind this morning as I was slogging through a 9 mile run followed by a 2.6 mile hike with my wife, my two dogs and my daughter’s dog – the Constitution is actually two documents contained on one piece of parchment. The first is the legal document, the law…

It’s Still All a Lie

The only thing you need to know about the agenda of the American progressive left is this: EVERY MOTIVATION IS BASED ON A LIE. America was never great – lie. Europe is better than the USA – lie. Price controls work – lie. Gun control works – lie. America is imperialistic, hegemonic and war mongering…

The Antifa Long Con

When you think about it, the left’s use of Antifa in their long con is brilliant. There are long and short cons – the short con anticipates a “hit and run” – a quick return, the long con takes much longer to set up and usually lasts significantly longer. Claiming that Trump stole the election…

POLITICS AND PROPAGANDA: THE LEFT & RIGHT IN AMERICA

THE ROAD TO CONCORD In the aftermath of the violence in Charlotte, NC, we are — once again — witnessing the ‘main stream’ media pushing to link NAZIs and Fascism to the American Right.  Let me start with what has become an obligatory condemnation of the NAZI/White Supremacist movement.  It shouldn’t be necessary — especially…

Acosta-ed in the White House Press Room

I was thinking about how much the media members like CNN’s Jim Acosta depend on Americans being ignorant of their own history.   Acosta accused the Trump administration of “violating” the tenets of the sonnet posted on the Statue of Liberty, “The New Colossus”, even though the sonnet does not equal actual policy. I also…

Trump’s Ace Up His Sleeve

When is enough enough? How long must conservatives suffer misfortune due to the incompetence and intentional deceit of liberal ideologues who believe their own unfortunate lies? Remember my FB post on the Wasserman-Schultz’ IT guy who was arrested, and that everyone assumed was fake news? In the FB post, I wrote that had Comey been…

Lessons From Moldova

I’m an anti-progressive zealot – of that there is no doubt. I do agree that government should do a very few things, those things should be clearly defined and never expanded upon without the will of the people approving it. The Founding Fathers believed that as well, that is why the amendment process of the…
