Memorial Day: Normandy

Originally posted on Memorial Day in 2013, these pictures still bring a feeling of pride, an incredible feeling of gratitude and a tear to my eye. Remember and be thankful. These are all from our visit to the beaches of Normandy, to Ste. Lo, Ste. Mere Eglise and Bayeux last October. I have never felt…

America or Foreign Force and Influence

Most of my life I couldn’t understand those that advocate policies or actions that obviously endanger the ongoing concern of our American Republic and Liberty for mankind.  Now I realize my naïveté. “Concerning Dangers from Foreign Force and Influence” Federalist No. 2, Author John Jay “To the People . . . With equal pleasure I…

WOLVERINES!

JUST WATCH IT! — ALL of it! If you get it, comment “WOLVERINES!”  If you don’t…  Well, bow down and do not complain about the weight of your master’s chains, and forget you ever called yourself our countrymen.

Defend Your Natural Right to Discriminate!

FUNDAMENTALS OF NATURAL LAW: We have a Natural Right to Discriminate I have been watching this ‘debate’ over discrimination with great amusement.  First of all, I shouldn’t call it a debate.  In reality, it is bullying, but not by the people discriminating, but by the people who claim to be trying to stop discrimination.  Their hypocrisy…

Ted Cruz: The American dream vs. Dreams of a [Marxist] father

Ted Cruz has obviously read the Declaration of Independence. Where are the tele-prompters for Mr. Cruz?  Oh, there are NOT any.  Why doesn’t Mr. Cruz need a teleprompter? Compare and contrast the vision of greatness held by the Ted Cruz with “Dreams of a [Marxist] Father” The American dream versus an America permanently changed. Ted…

Grover Norquist: the Fox in the Hen House

PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW: ‘Compromise’ Negates Principles If you embrace the notions of individual rights and liberty and self-governance, then you must embrace and protect the principles and ideals of Natural Law.  This is because these things come only from Natural Law and not from man.  They can never come from man.  By logical extension, this…

Court Approves Christian Evangelism in Public Schools!

LAWLESSNESS IN THE HEADLINES: The Death of the First Amendment Have you heard?  The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled it is ‘Constitutional’ for our schools to teach Christianity to students.  They are not just teaching about the religion; they are teaching the religion.  The Court even ruled that it is ‘Constitutional’ for our schools…

How does Humanism Work?

UNDERSTANDING HUMANISM: Humanism is Founded on the Notions of Factual and Moral Relativism NOTE: this is a long post, but it connects many dots.  Please consider reading it all the way through.  It may help you see the bigger picture but, more importantly to me, it may help you provide me with additional pieces tot hat…

The Founders Tried to Warn Us…

PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW: Rand and Libertarians Reject the Key Element of Liberty I have been hard on Glenn Beck on this and especially on my other blog, The OYL.  However, I do not mean to give the impression that I have anything against him, personally.  It’s just that I do not like the general direction…

HOLLYWOOD “PROGRESSIVES & WHAT THEY REALLY WANT!!!

Although “Progressives/Communists” are generally economic illiterates like our Hollywood airheads, even they should be able to master the concept that nothing is “free” in any human society. What Sandra Fluke demanded was that other Americans pay for her birth control, even though as a privileged law student she could easily pay for it herself. What…

IMHO: One of My Best, Please Read it — ALL of it

AGENDAS: The Fascist Takeover of the Internet Let me ask you a question.  How often have you heard the term ‘fascist’ being used to attack someone?  In our society, this is a very powerful attack.  In many ways, it is akin to being called a racist or a ‘homophobe.’  This term is not the property of…

Before You Say “I Am Charlie!” Read This

PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW: Free Speech has Limits With the killings in France, it has become popular for people in this country (The United States) to say “I am Charlie!”  But that is an ignorant statement.  Now, I understand that the people who are saying this mean well.  They think they are supporting free speech, but…

The Liberty Gap

Progressives of both parties constantly kvetch and fret over so-called “income inequality”. They seize on any report (or any book by Thomas Piketty) that treats “income inequality” as an example of the pending Armageddon that is going to be created due to the wealthy being wealthy and the poor being poor. In their minds this…

Are You TEA Party or Tyrant (there is no middle ground)?

PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW: You are either Pro TEA Party, or You are Pro Tyranny (there’s no ‘middle ground’ on this issue) Are you Pro TEA Party or Pro Tyranny, Slavery/Indentured Servitude, Lawlessness and Licentiousness?  Yes, I understand that it is fallacious to argue “You’re either for me or against me”  — except when there are…
