Antonin Scalia Speaks an Undeniable Truth and Liberals Condemn

You know Liberals have no arguments when they’re only response is moral outrage. Thus, the Mother Jones headline: “Justice Scalia Suggests Blacks Belong at ‘Slower’ Colleges.” Then followed the tagline that summarizes their best response: “Yes, he really said that.” The Supreme Court is hearing arguments about an “affirmative action” case. Thus, Scalia was not referring to all blacks. I’m sure that Ben Carson could get accepted and do well in any school in the country. Scalia was talking about Read more […]

Black Families, Poverty, and the Barack Obama Regime

How have black families fared financially under the Barack Obama Administration? Not well. A couple of days ago I read a fascinating column by Thomas Sowell over at “Race, Politics, and Lies.” Among the many painful ironies in the current racial turmoil is that communities scattered across the country were disrupted by riots and looting because of the demonstrable lie that Michael Brown was shot in the back by a white policeman in Missouri — but there was not nearly as Read more […]

Thomas Sowell on Ferguson and the Mob

Thomas Sowell on Ferguson nails it, on several sides. Our education system excels at telling students what to put on a test, but rare is the modern American who actually uses his God-given gift of reasoning. Has a generation ever been so easily manipulated by unthinking talking-points? Where are the leaders who are willing to carefully use their time at the microphone to explain these realities, rather than leverage a tragedy for political ends? Those of us who admit that we were not there, Read more […]

I Still Don’t Think Cliven Bundy Should Be Massacred (Edited!)

I’m retracting some of the material below because I think this video of the full context of the rant really contradicts Politico’s headline appraisal. That also means that all my appraisals below are based on insufficient information. I still wish Bundy had not given the media an opportunity here. I realize he has the right of free speech, but he is also engaged in a conflict with the Federal government that largely hinges on winning a propaganda war. I may delete this post but my basic point, Read more […]

We’ve Become a Food Stamps Nation to Keep Democrats in Power

Food Stamps are big business, job killers, turn human beings into wards of the State, and have become a reliable voting block for the Democrat Party. The typical argument used by liberals as to why food stamps are so important is that children and the elderly are the recipients. That’s probably true. The question is, how did we get to the place in our nation where in 1969, 2.8 million people received food stamps and today more than 47 million are on food stamps? “Since President Lyndon Baines Read more […]

Low Information Voter Calls Sean Hannity

I was sitting in my car eating some dark chocolate ice cream with two scoops of roasted almonds mixed in from Cold Stone Creamery listening to the Sean Hannity Show when I heard a Low Information Voter call in. A woman from Atlanta told Hannity that ObamaCare was working, and she had proof. It was downhill from there. Her evidence was anecdotal. She had pulled the Hasty Generalization Fallacy card: “This fallacy is committed when a person draws a conclusion about a group based on a sample that Read more […]

Term Limits: Learning from the Confederates

One of my main talking points in the area of politics (and anyone even remotely acquainted with me knows that these are few and far between) is the issue of term limits. I have long been a supporter of them—at all levels of government. One of the brilliant moves taken by the writers of the Confederate Constitution of 1861 was to limit the President’s term to six years, with no chance of re-election (Article 2, Section 1). This assured that new executive leadership would be had every six years. Read more […]

Are Blacks Racist if they Vote for Obama because He’s Black?

Conservatives aren’t the only ones who are questioning the black vote these days. When Stacey Dash, who is black and Mexican, came out for Romney, she was attacked for rejecting her black heritage. She was called an “Oreo” (black on the outside but white on the inside), a “jigaboo” (a weak and servile black), and additional racial epithets. The consensus among outspoken blacks is that a black must vote for Barack Obama because he’s black. Jesse Washington, writing for Read more […]

Ivy-Covered Adolescents of Racism

When President Obama took office, he promised to be a “uniter,” rather than a “divider” for the American people. Nearly four years later, America is much more divided than it was, and skin color has become almost synonymous with political party—to the point that support for Mitt Romney among blacks is said to be non-existent (or so say the reliably unreliable polls). Ann Coulter’s new book, Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama, is doing precisely what Ann wanted it Read more […]

The Real Conservative Party?

Right on cue, Thomas Friedman, over at the New York Times, has written his most recent column on the need for a “real conservative party.” This idea sounds pretty good until you begin to understand what Friedman, centrist that he is, is actually talking about. To him, a real conservative is one who is not necessarily opposed to big government so long as it is serving what he calls “the four great issues of our day”: 1) budget and debt, 2) globalization and education, 3) energy and climate, Read more […]

Will the Left and Right Attack Paul Ryan for His Support of Ayn Rand?

We now know that Paul Ryan is Mitt Romney’s VP pick. Shortly after Congressman Paul Ryan’s appearance at the 2011 Faith and Freedom Conference in D.C., a Bible-waving protester confronted the Chairman of the House Budget Committee and questioned him for modeling his proposed budget after “the extreme ideology of Ayn Rand rather than the basic economic justice values of the Bible.” The protestor offered Ryan a Bible and advised him to “bone up on what it says about how we should treat Read more […]
