YOU CAN’T FIX THE PROBLEM WITH MORE OF WHAT CAUSED IT

YOU CAN’T FIX THE PROBLEM WITH MORE OF WHAT CAUSED IT

on May 6, 2013, 9:41 AM / in Opinion

I realize that to many the title of this rant doesn’t make a lot of sense; probably because throughout most of their lives they have seen just the opposite approach used in a vain attempt to solve the problems of our country. Communism, a form of Socialism, embraced by those on the political left, no matter how it is administered […]

Letter to Holder

on May 6, 2013, 8:28 AM / in History, Opinion

C/O Jackie Juntti It appears that Attorney General Holder sent Gov. Brownback of Kansas, a letter citing the Supremacy Clause in justifying the federal enforcement of gun laws in the states. This is what I would have sent him in return were I in a position to do so. Attorney General Eric Holder Office of the Attorney General Washington, D.C. […]

Homosexual Lobby exposed — by one of their own!

on May 4, 2013, 8:13 AM / in Opinion

“Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we’re going to do with marriage when we get there.” Those words were not uttered by some pro-Family conspiracy monger. They were spoken by journalist Masha Gessen, a radical homosexual activist. I gave this a “thumbs up” for the speaker’s honesty and telling the truth regarding the radical homosexual agenda. For […]

Nisbet vs. Plato and Rousseau

on May 4, 2013, 6:27 AM / in History, Opinion

by Gary North GaryNorth.com Is civil government the only true government? Does it alone possess legitimate sovereignty? Defenders of the modern state insist that this is the case, and that it should be the case. Robert Nisbet, as a sociologist, looked to social organizations as the source of political tradition. He explained the rise of the modern state in terms of […]

The DoD’s Frontal Assault on Faith

on May 3, 2013, 9:20 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Today we observe the National Day of Prayer, but if you’re active duty or reserve military, you’d better not mention that to any of your fellow compatriots in uniform, or invite them to join in a prayer vigil, lest you find yourself in front of a military tribunal. You read that correctly. It is no small irony this week that […]

The Pope and Godless Capitalism

on May 3, 2013, 6:42 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

“This is called slave labor,” said Pope Francis. The Holy Father was referring to the $40 a month paid to apparel workers at that eight-story garment factory in Bangladesh that collapsed on top of them, killing more than 400. “Not paying a just wage … focusing exclusively on the balance books, on financial statements, only looking at personal profit. That […]

Should Christians Give Up Their Guns?

on May 3, 2013, 5:41 AM / in Opinion

This column is archived here. Not since 1775 has a central government in America attempted to disarm its citizens in the way that President Barack Obama and Senator Dianne Feinstein did recently. King George III attempted to disarm the colonists on April 19, 1775, and that attempt ignited America’s War for Independence. Leading the charge to resist the banning and […]

National Day of Prayer

on May 3, 2013, 4:27 AM / in Opinion, Religion

Another National Day of Prayer has come and gone, and left me wondering, as I have many times, why we have set aside one day of prayer for our country, out of the entire year. Many very important things we have assigned a day to remember, certainly no harm in that. We have even devoted certain weeks to mark things, […]

Judge Declares National Day of Prayer Unconstitutional

Judge Declares National Day of Prayer Unconstitutional

on May 2, 2013, 4:23 AM / in History, Opinion

Three years ago today I copied this article as a reminder how we have pandered to the judicial few. Because of its age I have published this in its entirety. It seems that there is always someone, somewhere, that views symbolic issues as declarations of hatred. I can not for the life of me understand these individuals. The original article is by […]

How Government Hurts

How Government Hurts

on April 30, 2013, 8:40 AM / in Opinion

The federal-government-imposed sequester that kicked in after a specially appointed Congressional committee could not find ways to cut spending is a great example of government mismanagement. It seems not a week goes by without a news story focusing on the latest sequestering cuts. Dozens of air shows canceled due to Blue Angels funding cuts, cuts to cancer clinics, cuts to […]

Liberal Suffering and Confusion

Liberal Suffering and Confusion

on April 30, 2013, 8:09 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

by Walter E. Williams The liberal world vision and reality are often at variance, for example, with equal pay for equal work. I’ve often watched “Lockup,” a show that features California supermax prisons, including Pelican Bay and Corcoran. Often, a recalcitrant prisoner must be extracted from his cell through brute force. I’ve never seen female guards remove a prisoner. If they […]

Their War, Not Ours

“The worst mistake of my presidency,” said Ronald Reagan of his decision to put Marines into the middle of Lebanon’s civil war, where 241 died in a suicide bombing of their barracks. And if Barack Obama plunges into Syria’s civil war, it could consume his presidency, even as Iraq consumed the presidency of George W. Bush. Why would Obama even […]

An essay on Internet sales taxes by Aaron Lukas, trade analyst at the Cato Institute’s Center for Trade Policy Studies, in its day was a must reading in it day but that was 12 years ago. The essay exposed the rampant hypocrisy in the arguments of those who favor allowing states to collude on a multi-state online sales tax system. Of course […]

Signposts on the Road to Decline

on April 29, 2013, 9:17 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

By Bruce Thornton In late 1930 the Tory leadership in Britain’s governing coalition decided to back independence for India despite the increasing, vicious sectarian violence that graphically showed India was not yet ready for the British to leave. Later, historian A.L. Rowse would link partisan self-interest to the failure of nerve and collapse of morale that lay behind the policies […]

The Truth and Education

on April 29, 2013, 6:52 AM / in Opinion

It appears the truth hurts so a little misdirection is all that is needed. When a minority is overly ticketed, all they have to do is scream racism and the rules change. In this article several years ago, Black middle schoolers appear to be punished more often than whites “New Hanover educators said they didn’t know what caused the trends […]

Should We Honor Vietnam Veterans?

on April 29, 2013, 5:49 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

by Laurence  M. Vance Perhaps it’s just my imagination, but it seems like the longer the United States military remains mired in Afghanistan, the more recognition is being given to Vietnam veterans. The U.S. Congress and some states have in the last few years issued resolutions declaring March 30th as “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.” March 30, 1973, is the date […]

The other day someone said “that just because they weren’t a radical, and did not hold the same beliefs as I do, that they are not brainless”. I suppose I have been a little bit harsh with my comments as of late. You can chock my comments up to frustration. I should know better, everyone has a brain, it just […]

The Dark Side of Diversity

“I do not know the method of drawing up an indictment against a whole people,” said Edmund Burke of the rebellious Americans. The same holds true of Islam, the majority faith of 49 nations from Morocco to Indonesia, a religion that 1.6 billion people profess. Yet, some assertions appear true. Islam is growing in militancy and intolerance, evolving again into […]
