Why the government shutdown is the worst idea ever

Why the government shutdown is the worst idea ever

House Speaker John Boehner flanked by his House colleagues. Photo credit: Associated Press/J. Scott Applewhite. Never, ever shut down the federal government again. – President Bill Clinton, 1996 State of the Union Address   As everyone knows, on October 1st at midnight, the federal government shut down for the first time in 17 years. This […]

NO to An Article V Convention (AKA Con Con)

NO to An Article V Convention (AKA Con Con)

In a recent series of articles, my CDN colleague Bruce MacIsaac has argued for calling a Constitutional Convention (AKA an Article V Convention) and has proposed, by his own admission, „numerous amendments to the Constitution.” Among these (admittedly laudable) amendments are ones to repeal the 16th and 17th Amendment, but also the monstrous „Balanced Budget […]

Ted Cruz Opens his Mouth and Lets out the Stupid

Ted Cruz Opens his Mouth and Lets out the Stupid

We all have been watching the recent political soap opera with high interest. It was great to see Ted Cruz filibuster for 21 hours, unlike John Boner–I mean, Boehner (why can’t I get that right?)–and John “Ancient Gasbag” McCain, who attacked him for it (along with other Republicans). Finally, there was somebody who was going […]

The Fomentation of a Government Shut Down

Well, it is upon us, the dreaded government shutdown. And yet the Earth still spins, the water still runs, the electric is on and Harry Reid is still tossing verbal grenades at anyone who dares represent an opposing view to the lock-step Progressive agenda. Imagine that! Our daily lives didn’t come to a grinding, catastrophic […]

Ohio’s Public Employee Union (OPERS) Loses Spouse Coverage under Obamacare

Ohio’s Public Employee Union (OPERS) Loses Spouse Coverage under Obamacare

If Ohio’s public employees are concerned about retirement system changes under Obamacare, it seems no one’s talking. Joe Wilson’s “You lie!“ shout-out to Obama from the floor of Congress in 2009 was indeed prophecy. Obama did lie. State of Ohio spouses cannot ‘keep their health insurance because they like it.’ I am one of those […]

The Real-Time Evolution of ‘Soft Despotism’

Today, many who consider themselves “visionaries” are sounding the alarm about the size and scope of government. From Obamacare to the Right to Bear Arms they decry government over-reach and the bureaucratization of our government. But those who truly understand the agenda of the Progressive Movement in the United States have been sounding this warning […]

Jaden Smith Has His Finger on the Pulse of Modern Education

Jaden Smith Has His Finger on the Pulse of Modern Education

Perhaps you heard the other day that Jaden Smith, son of actor Will Smith, sent out a tweet that stirred up a hornets nest of criticism. Take a peek: “School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth.” He continued: “If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent […]

Illegal Immigrants: The Real Occupy Movement Taking Over America!

Illegal Immigrants: The Real Occupy Movement Taking Over America!

  There is an occupy movement bigger than Occupy Wall Street. This movement is  more dangerous to the American culture and society than a bunch of unwashed heathen pot-heads who want everything handed to them on a coke-lined mirror. These occupiers are occupying American jobs, educations, welfare, healthcare and public housing. These occupiers march in […]

Republicans are throwing the 2014 election away

The old saying goes, “third time’s the charm.” But it seems at this point that Republicans will waste a great opportunity to retake the Senate for the third time in a row. What are the mistakes the GOP is making? The same ones as always: allowing extremist, fringe groups like the Club for the Growth […]

Happy American Dream Day?

Happy American Dream Day?

Most of you know today as Labor Day. What exactly is Labor Day? Sounds like a day to celebrate work, but it isn’t. Maybe it’s a day where we celebrate the ability for women to give birth? Nope, not that either. Labor Day isn’t just a day off with pay. And it’s not BBQ at […]

If Conservatives Want to Restore America, Stop Allowing the GOP to Compromise The Constitution and America to the Democrats!

If Conservatives Want to Restore America, Stop Allowing the GOP to Compromise The Constitution and America to the Democrats!

        Republicans voters keep wallowing in chaos while repeating mistakes that put America on the road to progressivism: Compromise to the Left for fear of alienating the Left. Conservatives keep voting for candidates the GOP insists will beat Democrat candidates, and the GOP continues losing to the Democrats! That makes us conservatives […]

Government Shutdown?...Blame Obama & Reid

Government Shutdown?…Blame Obama & Reid

There are two statements one can make with certainty about the current situation inside the beltway. First, truth is a rare commodity. What was promised to be the most transparent administration in American history has proven to, by comparison, make Richard Nixon’s Administration look like Wikileaks. And second, the Republican Party, at its highest level, […]

Democrats Will Give Black Americans Forty Acres of Public Housing For the Honor of Voting For Democrat Mules

Democrats Will Give Black Americans Forty Acres of Public Housing For the Honor of Voting For Democrat Mules

There seems to be an unwritten set of Democrat rules for black Americans that include 40 underprivileged acres if they vote for the mule. It’s obvious the Emancipation Proclamation holds a bad aftertaste for Democrats or they never would have 40 acre-and-muled black Americans right back into slavery where blacks have been instructed to live […]
