The BIG Lie: “Well, I have to tell you, David, if you look at my track record over the last two years, I cut spending by over a trillion dollars in 2011.” –Barack Obama (Actually, federal spending increased by $147 billion in 2011.) Belly laugh of the year: “I’m not driven by some ideological agenda. I’m a pretty practical guy.” […]

The UpRight – The Patriot Post

on January 2, 2013, 1:14 PM / in National News, News, Opinion

“All the debate over spending is starting to remind me of the movie Jaws. We have some people who believe there is this big threat headed our way, but the authorities all tell us not to panic — but instead of the mayor of Amity Island telling us the beaches are safe, President Obama is telling us we’ll grow our […]

A New Agenda

A New Agenda

on January 2, 2013, 10:21 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

As we start the new year, it is sad to see so many Republicans patting themselves on the back, Grover Norquist included it seems, saying, “It’s ok, it really was a tax decrease because it is Tuesday.” The one pledge to rule them all got obfuscated away conveniently and it is time to move on to a new agenda for […]

Gun Control is an English Problem

Gun Control is an English Problem

on January 2, 2013, 10:14 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

If this phrase “gun control” were applied to anything else, e.g. “car control”, “computer control”, “speech control”, “pen control”, it would be at least laughable, if not downright objectionable. I would prefer to use the phrase “victim disarmament”, because that is what the end result of gun control truly is. My rants against gun control are intended for two groups […]

Multiple Justice Disorder

Joel Bowman, reckoning today from Buenos Aires, Argentina Chances are, you’re a criminal. At least as defined by the state. You might not be one of the 83,000 people who are sent to prison in the United States every single year… and you might not have run afoul of one of the 4,500 (and counting) federal statutes…but that doesn’t mean […]

David Malpass: Nothing Is Certain Except More Debt and Taxes

on January 2, 2013, 8:45 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

By DAVID MALPASS Original Post Whatever ultimately emerges from the fiscal-cliff negotiations over the past 48 hours, the country will survive. But the damage can’t be undone. Taxes are going up for all working Americans. And so is the size of government. Businesses have been waiting to see whether a second Obama administration will encourage the economy. During the fiscal-cliff […]

“Gun Nuts” — Projection, deliberate and otherwise, amongst the hoplophobes.

“Gun Nuts” — Projection, deliberate and otherwise, amongst the hoplophobes.

on January 1, 2013, 9:55 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Original Post “The whole purpose being to defame the targeted group and further isolate them from the general population.” Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person subconsciously denies his or her own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, usually to other people. Thus, projection involves imagining or projecting […]

ADOPTED, NOT ABORTED

ADOPTED, NOT ABORTED

on December 31, 2012, 7:04 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

by Maria Keller “Adoption, not abortion” is a sign often seen at abortuary pickets. Do we, as prolifers, understand adoption? Are we aware of all that pro-abortionists are doing to undermine the institution of adoption? In its most simplistic sense, adoption is the process whereby a couple (or single person) agree to take and raise a child who is not […]

Happy New Year 2013

on December 31, 2012, 4:16 AM / in Opinion

2013 will be one heck of a year, and like so many years before it the constitution will continue to be a target for destruction. This will also be a good year for opening the eyes of so many good individuals to this very same cause that rides the waves for us. Patrick Henry said in that famous speech in […]

The ILLEGALS

on December 30, 2012, 4:54 AM / in Opinion

“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 […]

Picking Up Sticks

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 SECESSION AND SOUTHERN INDEPENDENCE

on December 28, 2012, 1:33 PM / in National News, News, Opinion

The voluntary union (or confederacy) of States known as the United States was born of a secessionist movement against Great Britain, and our Declaration of Independence is, at base, a secessionist document. How, then, can secession legitimately be called ‘un-American?’

When you wish someone HAPPY NEW YEAR – what are you wishing for them?

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. So much so that I could not do my usual morning trap line for news until I write this down. It proves how history REPEATS – over and over and how people fall for the same […]

Borking

on December 26, 2012, 10:19 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Robert Bork’s 1987 nomination to the Supreme Court, and the uproar over his ideology that ultimately led to his defeat, forever changed the process by which the Senate confirms judges. In the 25 years that have followed Bork’s nomination, the two parties have fought increasingly bitter battles over high court picks in an effort to tilt the third branch of […]

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 […]
