Just Too Much

There are other messages we should take from the bitter rancor and vitriolic reactions to the recent episode of the US Senate performing its Article II, Section 2 Constitutional powers. It is the same message that is being sent when elections become a life or death proposition and when representatives of political parties engage in…

Starbucks in the Dock

Sooner or later every progressive organization undergoes a purge of those deemed not progressive enough. This was pretty common in the bad old days of the USSR – you even see it in Red China today – leaders of the communist movement get deposed and sent to the Gulag for not being sufficiently excited about…

All is Sancticomey

“Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.” ~ Ecclesiastes 1:2 Today, I update King Solomon (who wrote Ecclesiastes) by saying “Sancticomey of sancticomies, saiith Mikey the Scribe, sancticomey of sancticomies; all is sancticomey.” So, I coined a new word. Shoot me. Here’s the definition: Sancticomey (sanc-ti-cōm-e): (noun) – Righteousness accompanied…

Tantrums

If it seems that America is undergoing a permanent, monthly/weekly/daily temper tantrum – that’s because it is. While our President has done some very good things for our country in his short tenure, he has proven that he has no compunction about getting down in the playpen with his progressive and NeverTrump detractors and rubbing…

Systemic Progressivism

One of the reasons we on the right will never agree with the left is that the left chooses not to see the difference in the exercise of a right and the commission of a crime. Progressives choose not to see the difference in the right to bear arms and mass murder. The choose not…

Toxic Immaturity

Just saw this video clip where Emma Gonzalez, Parkland child activist, says (in her own voice): “For those of Us who KNEW him [Nikolas Cruz] since middle school, it was no surprise he was the shooter…” Yet she will take no responsibility for her own actions – beyond this tacit admission of complicity. The Stoneman…

When I Was A Child, I Spake As A Child

This morning, I posted a link on FaceBook to a New York Post article containing this quote from the people who took Nikolas Cruz in after his adoptive mother died: “The couple said Cruz acted very immature and suspected his adopted mother coddled him. ‘He was very naïve. He wasn’t dumb, just naïve,” James said.…

Help Us Oprah-Wan Kenobi

“She lived as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men.” Or so The Oprah says. Progressives are falling over themselves to worship the latest Priestess of Progressive Feminism, offering paeans to Her High and Nigh Ass in orgiastic glee. Cheerleading media outlets called the speech “inspirational” (Harper’s)…

A Considered Opinion

The word “progress” is root of the word “progressivism”, one used to describe an ideology supposedly engaged in improving the lives of Americans. The very idea of progress is a change for the better – forward movement toward something that enhances human existence.   If one looks at this so-called “progressive” ideology, one could legitimately…

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…

Hysterisis

The penchant for hyperbole as practiced by the American left indicates something more than the defense of a belief they are elite, superior and destined to rule. Many have proposed that progressivism is a religion and the reason the left reacts so harshly to disagreement is that they believe they are defending the one true…

A Failed Grande Experiment

The terrorist attack in Manchester should mark the end of a Grande Experiment. Sadly, this quote by the mayor of Manchester indicates it won’t be: “The message that I would want to get over — and this is how the vast majority of people feel — this man was a terrorist, not a Muslim. The…

The Hysterics

In the world of philosophy, there are five generally recognized branches of philosophical thought and inquiry. These are (listed in hierarchical relationship to each other): 1) Metaphysics (the study of existence), 2) Epistemology (the study of knowledge), 3) Ethics (the study of action), 4) Politics (the study of force) and 5) Esthetics (the study of…

$25 Down, $25 a Week

There is one perception of modern times that perhaps more than any other has caused America to enter a socioeconomic death spiral. Our downfall is rooted in the insane idea that somehow, we can live our lives on some sort of a $25 down, $25 a week forever installment plan. It boils down to the…

Separate Is Not Equal – No Matter Who Does It

The Supreme Court ended the doctrine of “Separate but Equal” when it handed down the landmark decision in Brown v. Board of Education in 1954, overturning the decision on Plessey v. Ferguson on May 18, 1896 that affirmed Louisiana state law mandating “equal but separate”. Homer Adolph Plessy bought a ticket on the East Louisiana…
