If Your Big Issue to Fight Racism is Kate Smith singing God Bless America…

...then we must conclude that actual racism in the United States of the sort that prevents people from living one's life and bettering one's position is practically non-existent.

Embrace the Power of NO!

There is actually a very easy way to deal with the insanity of the world today. A way that my parents and their parents understood. A way that leaders like Churchill and Washington and Lincoln understood, a way that is so simple that people once they discover it are amazed at the power it holds. … Continue reading Embrace the Power of NO!

Lenten Reflections Sixth Sunday in Lent (Palm Sunday) The Fickle World

Palm Sunday is in many ways the oddest day in Lent. We open the mass with the celebration of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem and the blessing of the palms and then quickly pivot to the Lord's Passion and Crucifixion. It's quite a contrast but it's a great example of the fickle nature of the world. … Continue reading Lenten Reflections Sixth Sunday in Lent (Palm Sunday) The Fickle World

Lenten Reflections 5th Tuesday in Lent: Unhidden Treasures

The Frankfurt School, the destruction of objective truth, and college indoctrination

The mistaken belief among about fifty percent of the younger generations that socialism is superior to capitalism can be traced back to the indoctrination that passes for education on our college campuses.  The roots of this indoctrination can be traced back to the destruction of objective truth, which was popularized by the Frankfurt School of … Continue reading The Frankfurt School, the destruction of objective truth, and college indoctrination

…and did you notice The Orville’s message against collective guilt?

Yesterday I talked about how the episodes Identity parts 1 & 2 confirmed that the Orville belonged in the front row of Science Fiction by more than default, but did you notice the conservative theme in the episode that must be driving the left crazy? The episode turned on a single idea, that collective guilt … Continue reading …and did you notice The Orville’s message against collective guilt?

Non Tweets 1/30 Andrew Sullivan’s Covington Irony, SOTU, Guns #1, Guns #2 & SABLE Washington opens with a win

The irony of reading Andrew Sullivan denouncing the racism of the black Hebrews and attacks of the media on the Covington kids on the receiving end of it reminds one that the fellow who coined the phrase "Christionist" and spent years going after Sarah Palin is not lost on me.

Victory at Sea History before the Culture Wars

Both Pete and Stacy referenced Tucker Carlson and his discussion of the deteriorating social fabric and I’m all in agreement on that. No discord here on what either … Continue reading On Muses and Journalism

Yesterday I was coming into the house after bringing my youngest to work. He was scheduled for 5 pm to close but was called in early. He had been offered five extra hours but decided on taking only three. I was a tad disappointed that he didn't take the full three hours until I got … Continue reading Stacy McCain and Why we fight the culture war

The perpetually offended have inherited the earth

The most powerful people in the United States are those that declare themselves to be offended; if they are of the liberal political persuasion, that is.  In most cases, they will be granted immediate attention by the liberal media, and whatever offends them will be immediately banned.  This is the end result of over two … Continue reading The perpetually offended have inherited the earth

Why do Conservatives and Libertarians squabble so much?

During the past two weeks I saw two Conservative friends post rather derogatory items about Libertarians on Facebook, and Libertarians do the same about Conservatives.  That is just a small sampling of what I‘ve seen since I’ve been on social media.  At times it appears there is an all out war between the two sides … Continue reading Why do Conservatives and Libertarians squabble so much?

Democrats retaking the House would be a Pyrrhic Victory

This article is most likely hypothetical because it appears that the Republican Party’s chances of maintaining control of the House of Representatives have increased since the Justice Kavanaugh debacle, and the Senate was never really in play.  I could be mistaken because most of the polls are unreliable and the media coverage is deeply biased. … Continue reading Democrats retaking the House would be a Pyrrhic Victory
