No Longer the World’s Policeman, We’re Now the World’s Social Worker

No Longer the World’s Policeman, We’re Now the World’s Social Worker

It’s 9AM late July and already the day is shot to hell. The temperature is over 80 and the humidity would wilt a Puritan’s collar. You’re supposed to be taking Migra, your Mexican Water Spaniel, on a 400–hundred-mile car trip. The dog’s 14–years–old if he’s a day, and who knows if he’ll live long enough […]

Government Motors & Close Enough for Government Work

Government Motors & Close Enough for Government Work

 Times have been tough at Government Motors. For a while there it looked like both Osama and GM were going to be dead after encountering the Obama regime. Just recently GM announced the recall of 8,200,000 vehicles over problems with faulty ignition switches. When added to earlier North American recalls, the total for 2014 is […]

The Call of the RINO in Virginia and Mississippi

  It would be a lot easier for conservatives to tolerate the sanctimony of Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) if they weren’t so hypocritical — or in the case of Mississippi RINOs — despicably hypocritical. ‘Moderate’ Republicans never tire of telling us conservative extremists how they are inclusive and ready to reach across the aisle […]

Only Obama Staffers Believe IRS ‘Lost’ Email

If you’ve been skeptical about the IRS’ explanation that Lois Lerner’s email disappeared during a World of Warcraft online game that got out of control, I have good news. Particularly since you’ve also probably been a little reluctant to express that thought. No one wants to be called a racist in the latte line at […]

Eric Cantor Picked the Wrong Base

| June 20, 2014 | 0 Comments

It’s no mystery why Eric Cantor lost his primary last Tuesday. He simply failed to turn out his new Hispanic base. And Cantor is not completely to blame for this failure, because events outside his control were also working against him. On the day of the vote many members of his new voting block, Futuro […]

Creating Democrats One Squirrel at a Time

| June 6, 2014 | 0 Comments

A lack of affordable housing forced me to move 24 miles south of the Fort Hunt area in Fairfax County, VA. I couldn’t find an affordable house that had a view of the Potomac River. We had been renting a home there for five years and each winter, after the leaves fell from the trees […]

Veterans Are the Healthcare Canary in a Coal Mine

| May 30, 2014 | 1 Comment

Between today and June 6th’s 70th anniversary of the D–Day landing I want you to find a veteran and talk to him. This doesn’t mean cornering some unsuspecting vet and ambushing him with the latest insipid leftist cliché: ‘Thank you for your service,’ which manages to be both pretentious and condescending. (However, it is an […]

Don’t take your guns to town son, Leave your guns at home Bill, Don’t take your guns to town.           Johnny Cash ‘Don’t Take Your Guns to Town’ Marching on Washington, DC to change the government has not met with success. 150 years ago Maj. Gen. Jubal Early traveled up the Shenandoah Valley in an […]

Abortion As Performance Art

| May 15, 2014 | 1 Comment

A New Jersey execution was recently videotaped and posted on YouTube. Instead of using a simple, painless pill authorities in New Jersey opted for an invasive mechanical method that took longer and carried risk. Yet the resulting video was awarded a prize and greeted with shouts of joy by the left and other cultural arbiters. […]

Hooray for the Death Penalty!

| May 8, 2014 | 0 Comments

For a brief moment I almost believed the mainstream media when I read: ‘Oklahoma Execution of Murderer Went Horribly, Horribly Wrong.’ ‘Oklahoma Governor Calls for Independent Review of Botched Execution.’ My initial response was horror, too: You mean that violent sadist is still alive?!!! But the execution wasn’t botched. Clayton Lockett is dead, dead, dead […]

Are You Smarter Than a Supreme Court Judge?

| April 30, 2014 | 0 Comments

April was not a good month for Americans that still believe the Supreme Court is a font of legal wisdom. Former Justice John Paul Stevens authored an Op–Ed in the WaPost proving you can be ignorant of history, blinded by ideology and confused regarding the plain meaning of words and still get to wear the […]

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

| April 13, 2014 | 0 Comments

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 […]
