Rhode Island embarrassed again…

“Me thinks thou dost protest too much”…

It’s 2016, and our nation is wounded yet again by racial division. Only this time it appears to be political in its origins. To be sure, this country has seen its share of racial tension. Great men like Martin Luther … Continue reading

Of Flags and Men…

The Confederate flag as most know it today actually has a number of variants, the most recognizable being the square battle flag adaptation, or the official and more rectangular Confederate flag. The commonly misused “stars and bars” phrase actually refers … Continue reading

Tired…

Notwithstanding the president’s misguided ideological assessment of the violence in Charleston, I’ve still been hesitant to engage in the inevitable debate over gun control which always seems to be at the top of the Liberal solution list. I suppose the … Continue reading

Not at all surprised…

The very soul of liberty was attacked in France, leaving an entire civilized world to contemplate how far we will allow a blatantly sadistic and inhuman ideology to go. For our part, there has been much written and bloviated about … Continue reading

Death by national suicide…

Quotes are tricky things and many folks often get them wrong. While a steadfast student of history, I have also been burned by the social media quote machine a time or two. This has however, made me laser focused on … Continue reading

Ignoring the real problems…

I always wait a couple of days before commenting on the more controversial stories of our time. It seems there are always caveats which ultimately shape our opinions going forward with the discourse. In this case however, the facts dictate … Continue reading

Forsaking the educated vote…

Admittedly, the fact that my 12 year-old has a deeper knowledge and understanding of civics and our founding principles than most college 20 something’s is troubling to be sure. It’s at least an indicator of more difficult times ahead for … Continue reading

Racism realty…

Ultimately, whether it’s Cliven Bundy, Donald Sterling, or any other idiot whose mouth is going before his/her brain is in gear, the damage they do will certainly be exploited to its maximum, albeit regrettable potential by those of less than … Continue reading

Free will to win or lose…

One need only read the letters and papers of the Framers to understand that our founding documents were written to empower individuals, not government. That premise frightens Liberal Progressives right out of their noggins. The raging debate over the Second … Continue reading

Change the channel…
