Perversion By Construction

Perversion By Construction

on October 8, 2016, 6:32 AM / in Opinion

I don’t know if you realize it, but there is a certain amount of stress involved in writing these commentaries. It’s not that the things I write about are that complicated; it is just that I can’t seem to get others to see the concepts I write about with the simplicity that I do. If there ever was a definition […]

Why I Won’t Vote In November

on October 3, 2016, 6:00 AM / in History, Opinion

By Neal Ross  /  Neal’s Soapbox For the past hour or so I’ve been hearing in the background a PBS television documentary on the lives of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. For what purpose PBS aired this show; to cause people to empathize with either of them, or to garner sympathy for them I cannot honestly say. All I know […]

Neal’s Soapbox First off, I know what you’re saying; “Didn’t Neal say we might not hear from him for awhile in regards to political rants?” You’re right you did hear me say that. But last night this thought popped into my head and kept me awake for the majority of the night while it gelled into the basis for what […]

How Can You Still Put Your Faith In A Broken System?

Special Thanks To Jackie….. you are the best Don’t worry, this is not a religious article; nonetheless the Bible is chock full of passages that talk of wisdom and understanding. How many times did Christ ask those listening to His lessons, “Having eyes, see not, having ears, hear not?” Knowledge, wisdom, and the ability to see things for what they […]

Why Should You Listen To Me Now?

Thanks to Jackie for reminding us that Neal is still out there…. When I began writing commentaries in opposition to the actions of my government I realized that I was bound to ruffle a few feathers. What I didn’t realize was that the quickest way to raise the ire of most people, and get oneself labeled unpatriotic in the process, […]

On March 23, 1775 Patrick Henry stood upon the floor of the Virginia State Assembly and uttered the following words, “Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I […]

“By far and above this is one of the BEST columns Neal has ever written.”  – Jackie   This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. (Matthew 15:8) Lately it seems as though the frequency of things that piss me off has picked up the pace. […]

Of all the creatures on this planet man alone has the capability of improving his life on Earth. Whether you believe in God or not is irrelevant, but it is man alone that has been blessed with a brain that is capable of amazing things. All the other creatures on this planet have brains, but theirs are only concerned with […]

Ross: What Else Can I Say (To A People Who Don’t Care)

on January 21, 2015, 7:20 AM / in Opinion

Moments after being sworn in as the first president of these States United under the new Constitution, George Washington stated, “The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.” I’m going to be […]

Please Try To Understand This

on December 24, 2014, 7:43 AM / in Opinion

A friend of mine shared this public service announcement on his Facebook page that has me outraged to the point I can barely speak about it rationally, but I will try. The ad begins with this kid who peeks into his sisters room while she is reading a book on her bed. Then he goes into a room, (his parents?) […]

Thanks to Jackie for letting us see this one….. I can’t count how many articles I have written on the subjects of rights and the abuses of power by our government. I have tried many different approaches in my attempts to get people to open their eyes but to no avail. I live and breathe with the hope that someday […]

If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government… ~ Federalist 28, Alexander Hamilton There is a phrase that I have heard mentioned from time to time on the internet, and up until now I […]

Have We Come Full Circle?

on April 20, 2014, 6:46 AM / in Opinion

Sorry for the length, but I had to tie a lot of material together… After our Constitution was written it was sent to the legislatures of the 13 original states for debate and possible ratification. It is important to understand that it was by an act of these state legislatures agreeing to this Constitution that our federal government came into […]

I Have Already Made My Choice

on March 3, 2014, 7:27 AM / in Opinion

Seeing as how I live in California, a state whose legislators have, for the most part, taken a strict anti-gun rights stance, I have always kept my radar focused on anything regarding the infringement of our Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Therefore it should come as no surprise to anyone that the events currently unfolding in the […]

Ross: My Beliefs

on February 3, 2014, 8:42 AM / in Opinion

Everyone, no matter who they are, has a set of core beliefs that guide them in their lives. You might say these beliefs define them, as they are the guiding principles each person relies upon to make decisions in their daily lives. These beliefs are either founded upon things that they have learned, or by things that they have experienced […]

Article Archived Here Special Thanks to Jackie for reminding us…. I fully realize that on a good day maybe one hundred people might read these little commentaries I write, and if a thousand did it would be something to celebrate. So when you take into consideration that there are over 300 million people living in this country, I don’t have […]

In almost every endeavor a person undertakes they are going to encounter challenges on the way to success. There are some who give up at the first hint of difficulty, while others are steadfast and determined to persevere until they achieve their goal. I have never been one to simply toss in the towel simply because things got hard, but […]

Upside Down &Backwards

on December 26, 2013, 8:41 AM / in Opinion

I had not planned on writing anything today. Yet here I am. Sometimes when I sit down to write I have a specific idea in mind and I just go about gathering quotes and data to support my position. Other times I’ll see or hear something and it acts like a splinter in my mind; it sits there festering and […]

Ross: Has Our Republic Died?

on December 18, 2013, 7:02 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

I really don’t know if it is that I am a pessimist, or if I am just more willing to face facts than others are, but I keep hearing that there is an awakening going on in this country, that there is this quiet rage building against the assault upon our traditional values. However, as of yet I have not […]
