My kids and I can’t go to Luke Days because of the sequester but we’re still spending tons of cash of things like this. The federal government is looking into the serious issue of the “conflict” between humans and elephants. To help out on that important issue, the government generously gave $3.8 million of your • Read More »
I just sent this to Senator McCain’s office via his online contact form, and I urge everyone reading this to call office at 202-224-2235 and/or contact him online and tell him to listen to Arizonans, not Michael Bloomberg’s K Street lobbyists. Dear Senator McCain, I am a contributor to KFYI.com and a staff writer at Exurbanleague.com, • Read More »
Or not. Consider these recent posts from around teh interwebs. The Obama Era “The (Iraq) war’s strategic incoherence — which will ultimately doom the entire Middle Eastern project — the Bush administration’s adamant unwillingness to push back against the rising Democratic tide, and the president’s failure to provide for any semblance of a succession, and • Read More »
“Western culture is a complex combination of the Judeo-Christian tradition and the Greco-Roman. These two traditions are in conflict and so we have this terrible tension going on in our culture, particularly about sex and aggression. Much of our artwork — the titanic achievements of Michelangelo or Picasso or Rubens — is wrestling with the • Read More »
Mike Muir saw this one coming a long, long time ago. “On Meet the Press Sunday, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg indicated that Americans should get used to the idea of having their freedom’s limited by government, particularly when their actions affect themselves or others. “I do think there are certain times we should • Read More »
Look, I get that we owe our military veterans a huge debt. They’re willing to die for our safety, and I think we should honour and reward their service as much as we can. But paying out $20 million a year in benefits to spouses and families of veterans… of World War One? Is that • Read More »
Katie Pavlich has a great article up on Townhall warning us not to get complacent about the Cyprus savings seizures. As a reminder, the United States government has been eying and researching how Americans use their 401k plans for quite some time now. Recently we saw the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau suggest the government • Read More »
I was wandering by the TV display in a local electronics store a couple of years ago, and was accosted by an older gentleman who couldn’t believe that Obama was willing to let the Space Shuttle program go away. He went on and on about his conservatism and told me (at length) how the cancellation • Read More »
My soda, ’tis of theeSweet drink of libertyOf thee I swigDrink of the sug’ry kindBanned by the narrow mindFrom every pop machineLet freedom ring!
The sequester is a week old now. Here’s a photo of what these horrific cuts in government spending have done my neighborhood. And for comparison, here’s a photo of what my neighborhood looked like BEFORE the sequester. Man, I gotta find a new place to live…
Rand Paul’s filibuster yesterday, aside from being a an absolutely brilliant piece of political showmanship, brings up a good point: Are there limitations on the scope of the enemy we’re fighting? How do we know when/if we’ve defeated Al Qaeada/The Taliban/etc., declare victory and go home? What does victory look like in a war on • Read More »
I wrote back in November, after Romney’s @ss whuppin’ in the general election: Republicans have ran the next guy in line as their Presidential candidate ever since the Eisenhower administration. The candidate after Eisenhower was Nixon. In 1964, the candidate after Nixon was Goldwater, who challenged Nixon from the right in 1960. In 1968, it • Read More »
Communist dictator Hugo Chavez dies. Rand Paul filibusters Obama over the execution of Americans on U.S. without due process. And universal gun registration background checks look to be DOA in the Senate. It’s been a good week for freedom.
The Art Of Manliness has some heart-wrenching words for men dealing with a miscarriage. Hardship can either rip couples apart or bring them closer together. Decide early on that you and your wife are on the same team, at least as far as it depends on you, regardless of what difficulties you encounter. It’s particularly • Read More »
A self-avowed liberal gets it: It’s not about guns, it’s about government’s trust (or lack thereof) of the people they’re governing. This “assault weapons” burst of gun control fervor may make you feel like you’re doing something about mass shootings and saving the children, but it’s as much a silly shortcut around the real problem • Read More »
Between immigration, the sequester and the ongoing disaster that is our foreign policy, you might wonder why so much ink is being spilled over gun control, especially if you don’t own a gun. It’s just guns after all, they say, so why are so many people so worked up about what type of gun you • Read More »
