Eros and Estrogen on the Front Line

This December it will be 42 years since the last male was drafted into combat, but it looks like the fun is just starting for women. Not that they will be going to the post office to register anytime soon. Instead woman already in the military — who thought they were being all they can […]

Flavor Is a Human Right, Too

The biggest problem Christians and conservatives have in making the case for marriage to the younger generation is we don’t speak the same language, and I’m not referring to the number of ‘likes’ inserted into each sentence that replace thought. Our frame of reference has only a tangential connection with that of the younger generation. […]

World Vision’s Secular Myopia

Maybe it was a Mexican divorce. Last Monday World Vision President Richard Stearns walks hand–in–hand down the aisle pledging fealty to homosexual marriage until death do they part. This is big news, because World Vision is a Christian charity and the nation’s 10th largest. Then, only 48 hours later, the happy couple is fighting over […]

Ukraine Sanctions With Teeth Instead of Gums Are Still Possible

For a very brief moment it looked like the White House and I were finally going to be in agreement on the topic of misrule in the United States. Obama’s White House Press Office released a statement with harsh criticism of government actions that threaten “peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute to […]

How CPAC Stacked the Deck on the Amnesty Panel

| March 20, 2014 | 0 Comments

Here’s a handy rule of thumb: If two of the four members of an immigration panel have Hispanic surnames you can bet it’s an amnesty panel in disguise. That was certainly the case at CPAC’s ‘Can There Be Meaningful Immigration Reform Without Citizenship?’ (This phenomenon is evidently peculiar to Hispanics. If two people named Schmidt […]

Perry, Paul & Huckabee at CPAC 2014

| March 17, 2014 | 0 Comments

Gen. Robert E. Lee used Texas infantry as his reliable shock troops during the Civil War. If Hood’s division couldn’t drive the Yankees from a position, then no troops could. Evidently CPAC schedulers are of the same opinion. On both of the first two days of the conservative conference Texas speakers were used to soften […]

Bob McDonnell Discovers He’s Past the Sell–By Date

| March 2, 2014 | 0 Comments

If you need additional proof that taking handouts creates dependency, look no further than the sad fate of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell. McDonnell is currently under federal indictment and accused of trading government favors for money, loans and gifts from former Star Scientific chief executive Jonnie R. Williams Sr. Williams is one of those […]

Conservatives Ready for Sexual Cowardice

When does doing something — other than charging a machine gun nest — that has been done countless times previously stop being ‘courageous?’ Sally Jenkins of the WaPost has ruled that football player Michael Sam’s advice to people interested in dating him is a monumental story: “There are great courageous sports stories being played on […]

John Boehner’s Incremental Amnesty Surrender Strategy

Mathematicians have long contended that if you give a million monkeys a million typewriters and an infinite amount of time, eventually the simians will produce the King James Bible. Maybe so, but why inflict such a difficult challenge from the get–go? It could severely damage monkey morale. I suggest assigning monkey scribes the task of […]

Obama’s Trickle–Down Lawlessness

What Sen. Ted Cruz (R–TX) refers to as Obama’s “pattern of lawlessness, his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies via executive fiat” has trickled down to the new Democrat administration in Virginia. On Saturday, January 11th Democrat Mark Herring was sworn in as attorney general of the Commonwealth. During […]

TX Democrat Gubernatorial Candidate Wendy Davis’ Slip Is Showing

Wendy Davis is not the first Democrat to use a fetus pile as a stepping–stone to higher office. She’s only the latest. But Wendy is in such a hurry to run for governor of Texas that she’s left a lot of inconvenient facts behind. Davis first came to prominence when she lead a filibuster on […]

Amnesty: The Next GOP Leadership Betrayal

House Republican leadership is preparing to betray the base. Again. To illustrate the magnitude of the sellout I was going to use a hypothetical analogy with Democrats and their base. Initially I was going to posit that Sen. Tim Kaine (D–Secular) had changed his mind about abortion. For years Kaine has said that although he’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

Duck Dynasty Doesn’t Duck & Cover

These redneck duck assassins may have the number one reality show on cable TV, but the Robertson family has proven to be completely ignorant of what elite cultural arbiters demand of backwoods celebrities when they violate trendy cultural taboos. Instead of abjectly apologizing and disowning the Bible and his beliefs when criticized by the militant […]
