This year has not only been a long one when it comes to trudging through the political divisiveness, it has been an incredibly sad one when it comes to the tactics and strategies used by politicians in our nation. Starting all the way back in January, this POTUS election cycle has felt much more like the beginning of a civil war than anything else, and it has resulted in the nation being so split, in so many areas, that the USA may never be, politically speaking, the same again. I am sure when most think back over this year,...Read More
Month: November 2016
There has been a lot of discussion of late about the petulant reaction of leftists to the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency. Major cities in the USA continue to be burdened almost every night (interestingly not when it rains, as it has in LA the last couple of nights) by leftist rioters. A number of prominent millennial celebrities have been taking the airwaves to show us all their big tears. Millennial college students are demanding more than ever their “safe spaces,” where they can be safeguarded from views different than the leftist pablum fed to them daily...Read More
If our federal government was a person making $50,000, there would be $53,000 of credit card debt. It’s worse than that. There would be $25,000 on layaway. It’s worse than that. Our consumer would be overspending at an annualized rate of $1,600. Most of the above data can be derived at www.usdebtclock.org, as it relates to our government.

Memo to the Left: Keep Calling Your Opponents “Racists” and You Will Keep Losing! The “R” Card Is Played Out!
Just moments before I proceeded to write this article, a colleague of mine sent me a link to the Facebook wall of Tim Wise, a white self-avowed “anti-racist.” I will not bother relaying Wise’s tirade of a post. Rather, it is the article to which he links that is of interest. The latest edition of The Atlantic refers to the National Policy Institute (NPI), a small think tank that met in Washington D.C. this past weekend for its annual conference. NPI describes itself as “an independent organization dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent...Read More
What is it that makes people believe that they are better than anybody else? Race, creed, religion, social standings, land owner or renter, and etcetera. Do these things make someone better than someone else? Do social hierarchies make someone better than the next? Our liberty is challenged daily by different individuals who want to silence the opinions of others. Our First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America grants us the three very specific things that are never to be taken away: 1) Freedom of Religion; the right to be free of oppression against religion. 2) Freedom of Speech;...Read More
