There is no I in the word team and with Dim Won, b/k/a President Barack Obama, there is nothing more important than feeding his vanity, from Hill: President Obama delivered a blow to Democratic Senate candidates looking to distance themselves from his flagging approval ratings Monday, saying lawmakers avoiding him on the campaign trail were […]

OK, so by now, everyone has seen Obama’s comment about how he wasn’t interested in photo ops along the Texas border with Mexico. And, of course, everyone knows that’s a crock. I note McPhillips on Facebook saying so. I also note Limbaugh saying…. nothing but photo-ops.  Says he’s not interested in photo-ops?  That’s all he […]

Billy Beck over at Facebook just now… It constitutes a *lethal* national disaster to maintain open borders and a welfare-state at the same time. Is there anyone who does not understand this? No. The implications of this understanding are staggering. The Democrats pushing this, and those of the GOP approving it, MUST know this is […]

I notice today over at Q&O, that Bruce McQuain has written an article as regards Europe’s gas problem. It’s a problem that we should have predicted a long time ago and done something about.  And I’ll tell you true, that if we didn’t have our head so firmly implanted between our butt cheeks as regards […]

Here’s a point I’ve been making for some time, now…. as expressed by Terry A. Hurlbut at the site Conservative News and Views: Everyone remembers the anti-propaganda campaign that followed: “Bush Lied; People Died!”, “General Betray-Us,” et cetera ad nauseam. A few voices, most notably that of Sean Hannity, insisted that Saddam Hussein did have WMD, […]

OK, let’s start with a memory: Well, the meaning of a yellow light is changing, according to the National Journal: The National Motorists Association has a warning for the millions of drivers hitting the road for the busy holiday travel season: Beware of the yellow lights. The timing of yellow lights on traffic signals at […]

Why did Benghazi happen? It’s a question the news media and the left keeps asking,  along with a number of Americans who decided back in ’08, along with that magnificent mental midget John McCain, that we had nothing to fear from an Obama Presidency.   And the American people are starting to wake up to […]

I note David’s post, Pervert State University with large chunks of agreement, particularly  where he closes with… Evidently, building character is not included in the curriculum at Pervert State. True, but I’m not so sure we can aver that Penn State is anything unique, in this. I note with some interest a similar post over […]

Gross Domestic Product, unemployment, consumer confidence, bond ratings — the state of a nation can be measured using a series of black and white numbers, and while these tell a large part of the story they leave out a great deal.  Every country has in a sense its own unique collective personality built from the attitudes of its people and their shared traditions and history.  The journey that this country has taken from its inception to its current greatness has been made possible not by good economic indicators, but by the traits we have carried with us along the way.  Through both high points and hard times we have been bolstered by a certain toughness, resolve and indeed a stubbornness that is uniquely American.  Regardless of generational ideological shifts it is the retaining of these traits that is paramount in securing our future.  Increasingly it is becoming less true that “tough times make for tough people” and more accurately put “tough times make for weak and dependent people.” The Left wing in this country is on the verge of answering The Greatest Generation with the creation of The Glass Jaw Generation, unable to take a punch and become stronger for it.  If this is allowed to occur, the final blow to the empire will have been dealt.  So as Paul McCartney wrote and Ringo Starr once sang, “Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song, and I’ll try not to sing out of key”.

While the following will not be out of key, it will certainly be at times ugly and displeasing.  Just as the fields of Philosophy and Psychology have as a main tenant self-introspection, any useful political theory must be crafted only after a look in the mirror.  Even the most [...]
