Or maybe both? Left-leaning “news explanation” site Vox has trouble differentiating between the National Rifle Association, the largest firearms safety training organization in the world, and the National Recovery Act, a ruthless system of wage and price controls created to help introduce socialism into the U.S. Note to Vox: Guns and butter is just a • Read More »

Not to rain on your free-speech parade, but…

Just about a year ago, the Nigerian Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram kidnapped, raped and sold into slavery an entire school of 12-15 year old girls, due in large part to their Christian faith. The reaction from the Obama administration was swift and self-righteous: It immediately asked millions of Twitter users to express their outrage • Read More »

Michael Bane went off on Obama/Holder/Sharpton/et al’s current machinations to re-make America in their own image, and I chimed in. Walter Russell Mead’s work on the death of the Blue social model has been outstanding and the guide post I’ve used these past two years. The elaborate social/cultural machinery of the technocrats have built of the past • Read More »

In an effort to reduce violent crime, Baltimore officials and Metro Crime Stoppers are giving $500 rewards for tips that lead to illegal gun forfeitures. If a tip leads to • Read More »

Another tradition soon to be lost

December 3, 2014 | By exurbankevin | 1 Comment | Filed in: Democrats, Kevin, Law, politcs, Politics.

It is traditional for ex-Presidents to stay out of the spotlight after their term(s) in office are over and let the next President have his/her shot at things without someone second-guessing their decisions. Does anyone REALLY think that our current Narcissist-In-Chief will follow that tradition, rather than jump into the spotlight and try to make • Read More »

Mrs ExKev is watching a special on Fox about how radicals like Ward Churchill and Bill Ayers influence the thinking and policies of our nation’s universities.  Me? I’m not watching it. More liberal readers of this blog may be surprised to hear this (as they all pretty much believe we on the right watch Fox • Read More »

Turkey Time

I have a relatives who do not hold the same religious beliefs I do, and we have a great time at Thanksgiving and other semi-religious events because I’ve learned to keep my mouth shut, enjoy their company, let family be family, and be a witness to what I believe in, not a spokesman.  What’s the • Read More »

…that its appeal is, well, personal. People who follow that personality aren’t a part of the equation when the person they follow isn’t a part of the equation, either. Evangelical Christians know this from hard experience: Time and time again, a preacher arrives on the scene who dazzles everyone and promises his followers the Sun, • Read More »

The New Party Of No

November 6, 2014 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on The New Party Of No | Filed in: Democrats, GOP, Kevin, Law, politcs, Politics.

Let me explain this simply, clearly and plainly. If you ally yourself with schoolteachers, restrictive sexual mores, speech codes and domestic spying, don’t be surprised when young people rebel against you.  Kapeesh? 

A Delicate Balancing Act

November 5, 2014 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on A Delicate Balancing Act | Filed in: Democrats, GOP, politcs, Politics.

In 2008, Republicans had to balance not ticking off conservative Christian voters, who at the time were an essential element in the party, with the fact that one of their heroes, George W. Bush, had become absolutely toxic on the campaign trail as a whole.  In 2016, it’ll be the Democrats who will go under • Read More »

Michael Barone talks about what today’s elections will mean for the Democrats.  President Obama’s ideology — expanded government, Obamacare — has been less widely acceptable and his reputation for competence is currently in tatters. He was able to eke out re-election with a reduced percentage by good organization. But he leaves his party in trouble. • Read More »

Out of the one, many.

Leave it to a Libertarian to notice the (decentralized) elephant in the room. Just 39 percent give Democrats a favorable rating and just 33 percent do the same for Republicans. Not coincidentally, each party has also recently had a clear shot at implementing its vision of the good society. If you want to drive down • Read More »

The Glower Behind The Throne

John Fund goes there:  On Capitol Hill, members of both parties are more and more mystified at Obama’s apparent disengagement from parts of his job. Months before he dropped the ball on ISIS, he failed to keep himself properly apprised of the problems with Obamacare’s website. Jarrett appears to exercise such extraordinary influence that in • Read More »

Grover Norquist lays out the case that America isn’t having a “libertarian moment”, it’s having a libertarian MOVEMENT.  “So forget ‘moment.’ Think trend. And consider the once-impossible political shifts that have taken place over the past 30 years.

This has been a bugaboo of mine for quite a while now: We are entering into an era of increased personal empowerment unseen since the invention of the printing press.

Sea change?

June 18, 2014 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Sea change? | Filed in: Democrats, GOP, Kevin, Money, politcs.

When Republicans, led by Arizona’s own Barry Goldwater, told President Nixon that the GOP was ready to join the Democrats and begin impeachment proceedings, Nixon knew the gig was up.  Are we seeing that same sense of self-preservation kick in with the Democrats and the IRS scandal? Maybe.  Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says • Read More »

The Obama administration’s new attempt to spin away their decision to free five Taliban generals in return for one American soldier deserter may seem as stupid as the decision to make the trade, but it makes sense.  From a liberal point of view.  White House aides were aware Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had been tagged a • Read More »

Do All Gun Control Proponents Want To Be Gun Runners

March 26, 2014 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Do All Gun Control Proponents Want To Be Gun Runners | Filed in: Democrats, Guns, Kevin, politcs, Politics.

Based on a sample size of one, I’d say yes.  A California state senator who authored gun control legislation asked for campaign donations in exchange for introducing an undercover FBI agent to an arms trafficker, according to court documents unsealed Wednesday. The allegations against State Sen. Leland Yee were outlined in an FBI affidavit in • Read More »

Obama to Dems: “It’s Time to Worry”  Obama has increasingly sounded like the nerdy kid in a bad horror movie constantly warning his friends to stay out of danger as he’s called on the Democratic base to not be complacent in 2014. “You’ve got to pay attention to the states,” he begged at a recent • Read More »
