The Constitution and the Assassination of U.S. Citizens

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Anyone who knows me knows that I have been a supporter of the Global War on Terrorism, and eliminating terrorists when possible. I applauded Obama’s decision to put boots on the ground to take out Osama bin Laden, one of those rare occasions where I agreed with something Obama did. ...

Of Facebook, Social Media, and Liberal Sheep

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

I rarely partake in political debates on Facebook. I can't even remember the last time I posted a link to something political on my profile's wall. I don't do it because my friends are a mixed bag when it comes to politics; some are on the right, some on the ...

NY Times on the Constitution

Friday, January 7th, 2011

The Constitution continues to be at the center of ridicule by Leftists everywhere. Who’d have thought that our Constitution, and its reading in Congress, should generate so much angst by the Left? The New York Times chimes in with a piece entitled "Pomp, and Little Circumstance”. A theatrical production of unusual ...

I’m Flying Commando!

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

There is a new anti-TSA group on Facebook called "Hey TSA, I'm flying Commando" encouraging people to fly commando. This is a reaction to the recent changes in TSA body searches that have been in the news. Check it out.

David Green Hates Patriotism

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

Yesterday I ran across a piece on Big Piece by Mark Seavey concerning (and excerpting) an editorial by David Green that had been published earlier this week in the Daily Illini. Green was writing about a patriotic incident at a football game, where there was a military flyover and some ...

Make Mine Freedom

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

I am finding that this 1948 Cold War video is as relevant today as it was 60 years ago, especially when we have admitted Marxists being appointed to jobs in the Obama Administration, including Anita Dunn, who admits that one of her two favorite philosophers is Chairman Mao (mass-murdering dictator ...

Black Confederate

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

My long-time buddy, Richard, from San Diego ran across this video of H.K. Edgerton in Ringgold, Georgia. He has a lot to say about the Confederate Battle Flag, political correctness, and historical correctness. The man is brilliant. H.K., if you run across my post, please, keep up your fine work in helping ...

Making a list, Checking it twice

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

By now, most people has heard about the White House initiative to have a Stasi-like "report on your neighbor" program on alleged misinformation about the Health Care Reform bill (H.R. 3200) to White House staff. Many people have taken the view that Obama is building an enemies list, just as ...

Socialist is Code Word for Black?

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

It had to happen; I am not surprised that it did happen, but it finally came out. Calling Obama a "socialist" is now racist. That's right, racist. According to Lewis Diuguid of the Kansas City Star, the term "socialist" is a code word for "black." I never new this before ...

Starship Troopers vs. Forever War

Thursday, December 6th, 2007

This year being the Centennial marking the birth of Robert A. Heinlein, a lot of renewed interest in his works has been sparked. While attending Convergence (this was opposite the Heinlein Centennial Celebration taking place in St. Louis) there was a discussion on his works and Starship Troopers was brought ...

Spock.com To Provide Profiles On Every Human

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

I ran across an article on BreitBart that has the makings of being disturbing. The article revolves around a new web technology hosted by spock.com, of Redwood city. Their plan is to catalog and post profiles of every human on Earth. The plan involves harvesting data from various social networking ...

Lefties Want Blogger Union

Monday, August 6th, 2007

This is another entry of the "why am I not surprised?" There is a movement amongst the bloggers, predominantly the leftie bloggers to unionize the blogosphere. Say what? Unionize bloggers? They've got to be kidding. It isn't surprising that this movement originated with the left-wingnuts who think that everything has ...

Kerry Wants To Restrict Free Speech On Radio

Thursday, June 28th, 2007

Matt Drudge has posted this audio clip on youtube: Kerry, speaking out against free speech, shows his ignorance on how free markets work. when the "Fairness" Doctrine was eliminated in the '80s, resulting in the birth of Talk Radio, there was little political discourse on the air waves, except for ...

Feinstein Hates Free Speech

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA, my home state) announced on "Fox News Sunday" that she would consider reinstating the Fairness Doctrine on broadcast radio. This move would stifle conservative talk radio. I guess that in Feinstein's world "silence is golden." Feinstein's reasoning stems from the ongoing debate on Immigration Reform ...

Progressive-Socialists Take Aim Against Talk Radio

Thursday, June 21st, 2007

I find it both disturbing and ironic that the liberal/progressive-left seem to believe that they must have control of the political conversation, and when they don't, they insist that there is unfairness. So it is with talk radio. Think Progress (must be an oxymoron) has put forth a ...

Tax Cut Rally 2007

Saturday, April 14th, 2007

Today was the Tax Cut Coalition Rally at the Minnesota State Capitol, and I am very glad I headed up early as there was a competing event on the Capital Mall sponsored by the Sierra Club. When I arrived, there were already about a hundred people at the State ...

Independence Day

Tuesday, July 4th, 2006

Independence Day is a celebration of American Independence from England, filled with parades, fireworks, outdoor barbeques and many other things. The only thing missing is reflection on our Declaration of Independence itself. It was on this day, July Fourth, in 1776, that the Continental Congress voted unanimously to adopt the ...

Giving Thanks Where Thanks Is Due

Friday, August 19th, 2005

It is tiring hearing all of the hate/blame America rhetoric day in and day out, blaming President Bush and Republicans for high gas prices, the war on terrorism, the recession or the failure to capture (or eliminate) Osama bin Laden. I think it is time to give thanks for ...

They REALLY Are Like Our Enemy!

Monday, July 11th, 2005

Recently, that person over on some blog decided that Conservatives are the "American Taliban" and proceeded with this point by point comparison. I think it is time to come up with a more accurate comparison. Foreign Policy Al Qaida/Taliban: Die, Infidels, Die! Conservatives: Peace through Superior Fire Power/Peace through Spreading Liberty. Left-Wing ...

Leftists Rantings on Air America

Thursday, July 7th, 2005

I have, on occasion, tuned in to Air America, partially when I am in need of a good laugh, and also when I am on the road after Hugh Hewitt has ended is show. Tonight, on my way home from the Townhall meetup was one such occasion. What I heard ...
