State Of The Union 2014

Weary citizens have a pretty good idea of what to expect, summing up tonight’s #SOTUInThreeWords, while a new Rasmussen poll reveals that 62% of Americans feel SOTU is ‘mostly just for show’. It is, in all reality, nothing but a circus! If you want to play along in tonight’s 2014 State Of The Union Drinking Game: The Executive Authority to Take a… Read More »

Mans Law Vs. Natures Law

Recently on the Glenn Beck program, Glenn went through the differences between man’s law and natures law, does anyone know the difference, I didn’t. We as a people are so confined by man’s law, that we completely forget about natures law and we think that we are a free people, think again, read the transcript. Man’s laws,… Read More »

The Illusion of Recovery

Knowing where a nation is headed is difficult to discern. Members of a community experience life day by day, with the cumulative effects imperceptibly observed, and often colored by a short term perspective anchored in past experience. With a human bias of hope and optimism, ordinary folks caught up in what is called the normally… Read More »

The Motivational Doctrine of Discomfort

In a sad turn of events, former-Congressman Anthony Weiner and his wife are reportedly looking to down-size their living arrangements. They are planning to leave their $12,000/month Park Ave. apartment and have recently viewed a more frugal living space. According to the Washington Times, the new apartment they are considering rents for a mere $8,000/month.… Read More »

Spare No Expense & Bill the Taxpayer

Prince William County, VA recently witnessed a heartwarming episode that ended in a charming example of public – private cooperation. Not too far from where I live the county is constructing a new high school that will feature all the modern conveniences for students: Olympic–size swimming pool, state of the art football field and hot–and–cold… Read More »

How Facebook became irrelevant

Most Americans use Facebook to keep in-touch with family and post their latest personal triumphs. Facebook was hoping that most American businesses would do the same – not so much. The NSA scandal, AP phone taps and the sexting stories in the news have shown that everyone is watching. Only the foolish would post any… Read More »

Roberts Rules Again…Poorly

Now comes news that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has doubled down on his middle finger to the American citizenry by turning away – without comment, which the SCOTUS gets to do – an emergency stay request, filed by the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons and the Alliance for Natural Health USA, to… Read More »

American Capitalism & The Illusion of Laissez Faire

To draw from an opening phrase, in the beginning, there was capitalism. More accurately, at the beginning of our Constitutional Republic, government was committed to limiting – drastically – it’s footprint in the new American marketplace. Americans were free from the tyranny of government interference leveled at the former colonists at the hand of King… Read More »

Is the NFL Becoming the No Fan League?

The result of NFL’s experiment in negative market dynamics has just come in and the news is not good for Commissioner Roger Goodell. Last September the NFL greatly increased the irritation factor of attending games when the league banned women’s purses that were larger than a pack of cigarettes for ‘security’ reasons. (Complete details here.)… Read More »

Our Culture, and Language, Are Degenerating

Regrettably, our language seems to be devolving much like our social mores have been. In our increasingly morally relativistic culture, our language is morphing, adapting, and redefining each day, with fewer and fewer absolutes, and increasing laxity and less and less conviction. This is not a surprising development, for in many ways, our language and… Read More »

There is a War being Waged on Christians, and Christmas

The First Amendment to the Constitution states that, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” While Congress may not be actively extirpating religious freedom from the public square, small, vocal, and pertinacious groups and individuals are succeeding through social and media pressure to do what congress… Read More »

House GOP Doesn’t Listen Any Better than Walmart

Occasionally the wrong person takes a column to heart. Earlier this month I wrote that Walmart doesn’t help its PR efforts when the company acts in a manner that only serves to reinforce its reputation as the Simon Legree of retail. (Details here.) In this instance an Ohio store had a display in the employee… Read More »

Cooking A Turkey

Every family has different traditions, different ways of celebrating the Holidays. I was surprised to see how many different ways there were to cook a turkey. It seems that different parts of the country have different ways of doing things as well. There is a tradition in my family that I would like to share… Read More »
