Parenting Toward Capitalism

Parenting Toward Capitalism

In a century already plagued by stories of “crony capitalism” like Halliburton and Solyndra, the concept of capitalism is really getting a bad rap. I decided long ago that the liberal indoctrination of my children through mainstream media would not happen. So, when I see an opportunity to parent them away from destructive messages and […]

ObamaCare – Punishing Success and Responsibility

ObamaCare – Punishing Success and Responsibility

By now we have all heard the “You Didn’t Build That” speech. President Obama does not often make his true feelings known, but that speech was telling.

Gun Control Laws Only Control the Law Abiding

Gun Control Laws Only Control the Law Abiding

Just like the majority of police officers who never have to fire their gun during the course of a career, most civilians will never be shot at while watching a movie, browsing in a shopping mall or attending school. But for those few that do have the misfortune to be an unwilling participant in an […]

Protecting Yourself

Protecting Yourself

What can you do to protect yourself if a situation like Aurora, CO erupts? You don’t need Special Ops training,  but it makes sense to listen to what a SEAL recommends. Today on America Live with Megyn Kelly former Navy SEAL Brandon Webb shared his expertise and advice with viewers. Based on his experience as […]

Penn State: A Season in Purgatory

Penn State: A Season in Purgatory

On Saturday, September 8th, the University of Virginia has a once–in–a–lifetime opportunity to demonstrate how an institution obeys the same honor code that governs its students. The Cavaliers can prove to the world that UVA’s honor code is more than mere words when they refuse to play their football game against Penn State. But wait, […]

Participants Revolt Against The Derecho Project

Participants Revolt Against The Derecho Project

It’s unfortunate The Derecho Project — the largest urban global warming mitigation experiment in history — has proven to be an abject failure. Really a shame, too since the project’s design was almost perfect. The sample was composed of liberal environmentalists in Maryland, D.C. and Arlington who should have been eager to personally have a […]

A Simple Replacement for ObamaCare

A Simple Replacement for ObamaCare

The obvious solution to the health care problem is self-insurance. The Obama Tax is designed to effect those who are young, healthy, and can afford insurance. Who makes the decision about what someone else can afford? But that is beside the point. The point is that if one is young and healthy and can afford […]

Student Loans-In Need of a Fix?

Student Loans-In Need of a Fix?

Part 2 Yesterday we talked about many of the problems inherent with student loans in our society. Today I’d like to share some common sense ideas. Do note, I’m just a mom and I’m not a professional.

A Moral Case for Capitalism

A Moral Case for Capitalism

There is a pervasive attitude in academia and in the culture at large that socialists are misunderstood intellectuals and capitalists are selfish, greedy pigs. What is absent in the cultural discussion is the moral case for capitalism. Capitalism is morally right because it is consistent with free will, individual autonomy, and human creativity; it is […]

I had a dream. About a Jackbooted Beauty

I had a dream. About a Jackbooted Beauty

This morning I had a dream. About a jackbooted beauty. In the dream I was on a train. An old fashioned passenger car, something like the old steamer engines pulled. Inside the car were many other passengers of higher station than me, Diplomats, Advisors, and Politicians. Along both the sides of the car were couches […]

Puerto Rico does have a language barrier

Rick Santorum said recently that Puerto Rico should put emphasis on learning English, and he has been criticized for it. I see his critics as either political in nature or as new-jerk political correctness. There are underlying social issues unique of Puerto Rico and political party affiliations there that need to be known before even […]

Start producing ultra-renewable foods in your own home: Sprouting for Health and Vitality

Most people are familiar with sprouts, sprouts in their salads, sandwiches and stir fry for example. Sprouts are tasty and equally important, nutritious. When you think of sprouts you may think of just alfalfa and bean sprouts. But there are many sprouts you can grow, not only for taste but for health. Each variety of […]

Have you considered the mutigenic qualities (or lack thereof) of the produce that is grown from mutant seeds? What is a mutant seed you ask? One that […]
