“The state is the great fictitious entity by which everyone expects to live at the expense of everyone else.” Frederic Bastiat If the ILLEGALS can use the argument that giving birth to a child on American soil means those children are henceforth the financial and social responsibility of America and American’s taxes – then it should stand to reason that […]

on December 30, 2012, 4:22 AM / in Opinion

I read somewhere that hard work is a sign of a willingness to be responsible. So typically people who are getting things done are usually getting them done for others as well as themselves. Some time ago in an interview with the Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Jackson, I described myself as a man that picks up sticks. That may sound […]

on December 26, 2012, 10:54 AM / in News, Opinion

In listening to the morning preachers that I listen to daily one of them brought up a point that really struck me with force.

Christmas with Adams

on December 25, 2012, 4:37 AM / in History, Opinion

As we approach the celebration of Christ’s birth, I am reminded of the words of John Quincy Adams. On July 4, 1837, he spoke these words: “Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day? … Is it not that, in the chain of […]

The Founders would be livid

on December 24, 2012, 9:26 AM / in Opinion

This wasn’t in this morning’s headline, “Some travelers OK with full body scans“, but it has been and it proves two things; one, the sheer ignorance on the part of “some”  and the relationship between safety and liberty, and two, the shamelessness with which the media reports its consequences. Unfortunately for what’s left of America, the people who don’t know any better than to […]

“Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

on December 23, 2012, 8:58 AM / in Opinion, Religion

So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.” – Acts 16:30-31 “Finding the right questions is as crucial as finding the right answers,” says devotional writer Henri Nouwen. Yet how easy it is to run ahead of God’s Spirit as we talk to unbelievers about Christ, giving pre-packaged answers before we listen to their […]

Just days ’till the end of the world. Thank goodness. At least then I won’t have to hear any more about the fiscal cliff…nor the proposed solutions, compromises and assorted other prestidigitations that will “save” the country from driving right off the darned thing… considering we jumped off years ago this in nothing particular new.

By Peter Brimelow A couple of times today, in the wake of the appalling school shootings in Newtown CT, I’ve found myself talking to politically-aware individuals who are genuinely surprised to hear that there have been several instances where mass killings have been stopped because private citizens intervened with their own, legal, guns.
