Constitutional Illiteracy Facilitates Constitutional Abuse

Stock Photo of the Consitution of the United States and Feather Quill

This past week was Constitution Week, and justifiably so. For if ever there was a time in our nation’s history when we needed to be constitutionally literate, it is now. The spirit of apathy, and ignorance of our founding documents including the Constitution, plagues too many of our fellow citizens. But it is a rectifiable malady. By joint Congressional Resolution, ...

Kim Davis’ Problems Are Just Beginning. Wait Until She Tries to Buy Flowers

Kim Davis Mug Shot

Last week’s column concerning Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis did generate a strong response from readers and much of it, as predicted, was negative. The majority felt Davis’ refusal to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples because it violated God’s law was a principled exercise of civil disobedience. Unfortunately the definition of civil disobedience does not support the argument. Civil ...

Eagle-I willl not sit Eagle

A recent petition, originated by a Muslim residing in Germany, told authorities in Munich that Octoberfest, with its dancing and drinking and loud music, offended him and his religion and he wants it cancelled this year and forever after.

Eagle-American Bald Eagle

Redefining the Social Contract


The social contract is implicit in every campaign. In discussing the merits of various social programs and economic plans, candidates tout the benefits citizenship and specific party membership can bring, the obvious goal being to sway a plurality of the polity into voting for their vision of government. By extension, a positive vote for one plan is a negative vote ...

Governor Moonbeam Is Surprised That His Computer Modeling Is Wrong

Eagle, Patriot Stand Your Ground

Today California’s Governor Moonbeam stated that he is shocked at the intensity of the wildfires his state is experiencing because they are so much more violent and fast-moving than the state’s “computer modeling” predicted they would be.  After all, liberals live and die by what their computers tell them, and the real world be damned. So what does this disparity ...

The Evils of Political Tolerance Towards Rogue Regimes


The tolerance of an authoritative hand begets chaos, chaos in which dishonesty and maliciousness reign. Yet, it is precisely this hand of appeasement America has extended to the regimes whose antics resemble those of the lashing out of a petulant child. Dissidents in Syria, Ukraine and Cuba have called out to the United States for help. But the Obama administration ...

Good-night America R.I.P.


Goodnight America, you were once a proud, gracious and beautiful country.  Land of  the free and home of the brave. You opened your arms to oppressed people and they came here to better themselves, learn the language and become Americans, but over the last 25 years things changed. A new immigrant started arriving, immigrants from third world countries who didn’t ...

5,113 Days After the Falling Man of September 11, 2001


It has been 5,113 days since the al Qaeda attacks on New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon in Washington, DC, and the failed third assault that was intercepted into a farm field in Shanksville, Pennsylviania, by American patriots. To borrow a phrase from a past generation that certainly applies to this event, it is a day that will live ...

Europe Shows America Our Future Under Obama

Eagle and Flag

As Europe defends itself from the Islamic hoards, represented by those Muslims currently located inside the E.U. and those trying to get in from the outside, America must take note because Europe’s battle for survival is also America’s future battle.  Or, stated differently, under Obama, it’s our present battle as well as Europe’s. Our borders have been under direct attack ...

Is A Urinal Gender Neutral?

Eagle, Patriot Stand Your Ground

Why are liberals so quick to criticize natural, normal, heterosexual identity when they are so easily offended by anyone who in turn criticizes them?  When anyone disagrees with liberals, their opponents are immediately branded as being haters, biased and prejudiced, but of course liberals themselves don’t hate, can never be called biased and are unable to experience prejudice.  The current ...

The Coming Social Security War


When one faction of politicians makes a principled stance and threatens to shut down the government, the opposing faction likes to conjure up images of an apocalyptic world where the sick and the elderly are left to starve because they cannot get their federal benefits. As it turns out, the real threat to entitlements is a fully functioning government doing ...

The Myth of Expansive Workers’ Rights


For many, Labor Day is a chance to seize the remaining vestiges of summer- the final trip to the beach, the last picnic before the weather turns too crisp. But for many politicians and labor activists, it’s a chance to harp on the supposed horrors of American capitalism. Because apparently any wage below $15 an hour is exploitation. As are ...

California – The Canary in the Coal Mine

I was born in the Golden State. California was the jewel of the nation. It was the greatest state. The state the rest of the nation wanted to be. Now California is the poster child of failed social-progressive policies. Our debt is over $428 billion. We have close to 5 million Californians on food stamps. We have the seventh worse ...

Institutionalizing Mediocrity With “Participation Trophies”

James Harrison

Certain traits seem characteristic of the different demographic generations of Americans. From the “Greatest Generation,” those who experienced and survived World War II, to Generations X, Y, and Z, the demographics ascending over the last few decades, certain traits seem endemic. There’s some evidence that societally, and parentally, we may be contributing to some of the more pejorative characteristics of ...
