The Supreme Court Abandoned the Constitution a Long Time Ago

The Supreme Court’s tortured justification for their ruling in Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission is further proof that the Supreme Court completely abandoned the Constitution a great many decades ago.  In this earlier article I explained in detail how the Supreme Court should have ruled and why.  With this current article I was … Continue reading The Supreme Court Abandoned the Constitution a Long Time Ago

The Government Solution is Always Worse Than the Problem

When Milton Friedman famously wrote “I think the government solution to a problem is usually as bad as the problem and very often makes the problem worse” in his work An Economist's Protest, back in 1975, that statement was a fundamental truth.  Today there is no doubt that the government solution to any problem is … Continue reading The Government Solution is Always Worse Than the Problem

How the Overton Window has been used to distort political reality

I lost count of how many times I’ve heard that the cause of all or our country’s problems is the fact that we have two parties that are at political extremes, leaving most of us, who are moderates that inhabit political middle, unrepresented.  The proposed solution to this is the formation of a political party … Continue reading How the Overton Window has been used to distort political reality

White Privilege is a White Elephant

All across this country college students are being indoctrinated into believing a philosophy called “white privilege.”  The term seems rather innocuous but the philosophy is not.  This indoctrination has begun to spread down to the high school and grade schoo levell.  Like all race based philosophies, white privilege is a creation of the political left.  … Continue reading White Privilege is a White Elephant

Book Review—The Big Lie by Dinesh D’Souza

The subtitle of this book, Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American left, is the only thing I dislike about this book.  The statement is accurate but incomplete because it is missing the word modern when referring to the American left.  Progressivism in America predated the Nazi party and was more closely influenced by Italian … Continue reading Book Review—The Big Lie by Dinesh D’Souza

Bad governments create shithole countries

The internet exploded into a veritable excrement storm when Senator Dick Durbin accused President Trump of referring to some countries as shitholes.  It is still not clear if President Trump actually uttered that phrase, but the storm that ensued was rather intense, with members of the liberal media and liberals on social media immediately decrying … Continue reading Bad governments create shithole countries

My annual pilgrimage to La Salatte Shrine

As far as pilgrimages go, my annual trip to the National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette in Attleboro Massachusetts was not an epic journey.  It involved a five minute walk then an hour long bus ride on a luxury motor coach.  On the way we stopped at Wright's Chicken Farm, which I most … Continue reading My annual pilgrimage to La Salatte Shrine

The Colorado Wedding Cake Case and the Constitution

If the Supreme Court still followed the letter and the spirit of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution there is only one possible decision they could reach in the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.  Because this case involves freedom of speech and freedom of religion they would have to rule … Continue reading The Colorado Wedding Cake Case and the Constitution

On November 21st FCC Chairman Ajit Pai sent shock waves throughout the internet when he released this Statement announcing an end to President Obama’s misguided and disastrous Net Neutrality.  Here are the opening paragraphs from that statement.

Good Guys with Guns do save Lives

Whenever I hear about a mass shooting, the first thing that pops into my mind is, what a shame there weren’t armed people there to stop the tragedy.  I know a lot of individuals immediately shout out that the only way to stop these shootings is to enact gun control.  There is an inherent flaw … Continue reading Good Guys with Guns do save Lives

My Favorite Libertarian and Conservative Fiction Authors

It is safe to say that I’m a very voracious reader.  My primary passions, when it comes to fiction, are science fiction, horror, fantasy, and political thrillers.   I never discriminate when it comes to the political views of authors, even when their political views color their work.  Being a Libertarian, I much more closely identify … Continue reading My Favorite Libertarian and Conservative Fiction Authors

On Friday, October 6th President, Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, released sweeping religious liberty protections.   Contained in these protections is a reversal of ObamaCare’s conception mandate.  Most of these religious liberty protections are nothing new at all.  They are contained in the Free Exercise of Religion Clause of the First Amendment.  Unfortunately that clause has … Continue reading Attorney General Sessions’ Religious Liberty Protections and the First Amendment

The Definitive Treatise on Freedom of Speech

Thanks to our colleges, high schools, Hollywood, and the news media; very few Americans truly understand the concept of freedom of speech in its entirety.   I see, on such a regular basis, so many misconceptions about one of our most important God-given Natural rights.  When it comes to freedom of speech, the behavior of a … Continue reading The Definitive Treatise on Freedom of Speech

Why do the media insist on distorting the political spectrum?

Ever since the nomination of President Trump the media began to recycle those tired old clichés.  I’m sure you know the ones I'm talking about.  The most often recited claims are that all those on the political right are Fascists and those same people are all bigots.   Neither of those claims is remotely true but … Continue reading Why do the media insist on distorting the political spectrum?
