The Truth May Hurt, But Is Not Mean

on May 31, 2013, 8:16 AM / in Opinion

By: Erick Erickson I feel the need to add to this post as it is obvious a lot of people take up this topic with some heavily preconceived notions and biases.  I am shocked to learn I think women cannot be breadwinners.  That is what the left says, but it is not so.  Even now I am getting beaten up […]

Abolish the Corporate Income Tax!

on May 31, 2013, 7:51 AM / in History, News, Opinion

Sen. Carl Levin was aghast. Before his committee sat, unapologetic and uncontrite, Apple CEO Tim Cook, whose company had paid no U.S. corporate income taxes on the $74 billion it had earned abroad in recent years. “Apple has sought the Holy Grail of tax avoidance,” said Levin. “Apple has exploited an absurdity.” Actually, Apple had done nothing wrong, except hire […]

D.C. Vaudeville segues from comedy to TRAGEDY

on May 30, 2013, 6:34 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Washington, DC Vaudeville segues from comedy to tragedy.  The cast of satraps generally known to the public as the Gang of Eight (how ironic, a term used in early Soviet Russia) and in American parlance can be described as unconstitutional legislative thugs and devout enemies of middleclass America, e.g. their recent production of a proposed immigration reform bill. A brief […]

The attempt to destroy the individual

on May 30, 2013, 6:09 AM / in Opinion

Folks who know me personally I am sure would call me an *individual* as Rappoport describes below.-  I have never been a joiner – have always preferred small gatherings over large ones and have been called a hermit by many.  I have always believed and stood on my belief that God made me as a Unique Individual – he didn’t […]

Editor’s Note: He couldn’t have done this without Congressional Help! He has done more than any other President before him.  He has an impressive list of accomplishments: First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.

Dear IRS: Concerning the Content of my Prayers Dear IRS, I understand your people have been deeply interested in the content of my prayers. I never thought I’d see the day. I have always assumed prayer in any form goes against the current notion many of you in the IRS share — the notion that absolute separation of Church and […]

on May 28, 2013, 10:24 AM / in Opinion

‘You’re not leading the country, you’re misleading the country’ Country-music legend Charlie Daniels isn’t buying the White House line that President Obama simply “didn’t know” about the scandalous actions plaguing his administration. From the gun-running “Fast & Furious” debacle of 2011 to recent revelations the Internal Revenue Service has been targeting tea-party groups, Obama has denied knowledge of his underlings’ […]

Americans Deserve the IRS

Americans Deserve the IRS

on May 28, 2013, 10:00 AM / in History, Opinion

Individually, Americans do not deserve to be subservient to such a fear-mongering, intimidating and powerful agency as the Internal Revenue Service; but collectively, we do. Let’s look at it. Since the 1791 ratification of our Constitution, until well into the 1920s, federal spending as a percentage of gross domestic product never exceeded 5 percent, except during war. Today federal spending […]

by ALAN  CARUBA From its earliest days, even before the Revolution, Americans valued their  newspapers and understood they played a crucial role in the issues and events of  the times in which they lived. It would take a while, however, before newspapers  evolved from highly partisan advocates of the early political factions to their  role as watchdogs of government. A […]

After a British soldier wearing a Help for Heroes charity T-shirt was run over, stabbed and slashed with machetes and a meat cleaver, and beheaded, the Tory government advised its soldiers that it is probably best not to appear in uniform on the streets of their capital. Both murderers were wounded by police. One was photographed and recorded. His message: […]

It’s Time for Republicans to Stop “Compromising”

on May 24, 2013, 7:52 AM / in Opinion

Posted by  Chuck Muth Here’s why Republicans in Carson City absolutely, positively shouldn’t “compromise” with Democrats this legislative session; at least not as they have in the past… “By definition, compromise is a settlement of differences with mutual concessions being made by both parties,” writes former California Republican State Sen. Bill Richardson in his book titled Confrontational Politics. “This is […]

5 Principles of Patrolling explained, with select quotes from Patton

on May 24, 2013, 6:32 AM / in Opinion

In Ranger school or the equivalent that I attended, there was a common joke that when coming to a point of decision, when do you remind the person in a leadership position about the “5th Principle of Patrolling” (as if that would make their life easier). By the way the Principles of Patrolling are not a checklist, you have to do all five […]

Our federal government has instructed our federal, state and local police agencies that everyone who purports to be a SOVEREIGN should be TREATED as a TERRORIST! They have also brainwashed the American public into believing that being a SOVEREIGN is anti-American and unpatriotic! Perhaps this is: “The POT calling the KETTLE black?” WHAT IS SOVEREIGNTY? It is the inherent right and […]

Sometimes when I write I have a clear cut idea as to what I am going to write about. Other times I just begin with a thought and go from there. This time, as I sit here, I have no idea what I am about to say, nor how to say it. I feel as though I am being bombarded […]

  “The American people are weary. They don’t want boots on the ground. I don’t want boots on the ground. The worst thing the United States could do right now is put boots on the ground in Syria.” That was the leading Senate hawk favoring U.S. intervention in Syria’s civil war. But by ruling out U.S. ground troops, John McCain […]

This rather obvious politically incorrect question might be offensive to some considering we, the voters, put them there, but  it is likely to be the most important question we could answer, if we can just  answer it honestly and accept the reality that most Americans have been trying  to avoid for years now. It is the one flaw in our […]
