The culpability of the news media…

If you’re a student of American History, (and you should be), you would understand that the free press in our country have been active participants in the political discourse even before and as the United States was founded. You would … Continue reading

It has come to this…

My political views are no secret. And they can be a source of some contentious debate at times. That said, a co-worker recently “joked” the other day, asking if it were I who’d purchased Hitler’s phone at auction recently. Now … Continue reading

And the print media is no exception…

It’s ironic, that on the day the POTUS will likely misrepresent the issue of firearms and the Second Amendment in his final “State of the Union” address to the Congress and the American people, so then does the PROJO plaster … Continue reading

RI’s Lefty Broadcasters…

I’ve been weaning myself off the Rhode Island talk radio thing for a while now. I do have mixed emotions about it however, as I do enjoy hearing what my fellow Rhode Islanders are thinking about the topics of the … Continue reading

Don’t hold your breath…

Denial is one thing, ideology is quite another. President Barack Obama is clearly of the latter category, and he makes no bones about it. So for those looking for the POTUS to run to the nearest lectern and state what … Continue reading

Coach Joe Kennedy’s courage of conviction…

I believe the Bremerton High School flap over Assistant Coach Joe Kennedy praying on the field after football games is indicative of our nation’s current posture. Traditional and undeniable tenets of our culture are being shunned and vilified, all while … Continue reading

Gentle Ben…

The Republican Debate lived up to all the hype and garnered FOX News yet another ratings bonanza. That said I only have one real take away from the seemingly very early exchange. All in both formats sounded practiced and polished … Continue reading

Not feeling so politically correct today…

The freedom to be ignorant…

Someone referred to me as a “nut-job” recently because I watch FOX NEWS. This made me think wow, the Left apparently still has no answer for the “fair and balanced” thing, so they continue with this childish name-calling stuff. Truth … Continue reading

‘Shadow of crisis has passed’… Really?

Kudos to the Republicans for taking the highroad after last night’s State of the Union address. I have no such political desire today. As expected, the president embellished his record and misrepresented much of our nation’s current station to a … Continue reading

Is it race, or something more???

The issue of tension between police and minorities in this country is a double edge sword to be sure, with roots on both sides of the argument. But first the facts, as supported by all available evidence. On July 17, … Continue reading

Ray Rice and beyond…

I love the game of football. Regrettably though, professional sports as a whole has become an incubator for young athletes who’ve been coddled on their way to stardom in order to secure their financial worth to the teams and owners who … Continue reading

The Rebranding of America…

I’ve taken a lot of heat for my criticism of the POTUS, albeit mostly from the constitutionally challenged and/or hypocrites filled with the very hate and intolerance they claim to abhor. Nevertheless, and as the president navigates an endless stream … Continue reading

Time is short…

As we look back through the ages, we always discover the evil ones attempting to re-write history. In extreme cases we’ve witnessed unimaginable genocide as a “final solution” to the propagandized threat of a dictatorial regime. Subsequently, bloody and costly wars … Continue reading

Ultimately, the level of voter apathy and ignorance dictates the level of freedoms decay. This is evidenced by the degree of outrage we see over things like the IRS and Benghazi scandals, as well as any poll showing Hillary Clinton … 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

Now, if it were Susan Rice…

Free speech on the modern American Campus is not so free as one would think. Moreover, it usually only applies to “Liberal” free speech. That said, the recent flap over former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice speaking at Rutgers University, is … Continue reading

The issue of free speech has been a topic of debate at unprecedented levels throughout the era of Obama. Consequently, the very self-proclaimed spokespeople for freedom of expression and tolerance have demonstrated clearly thus far, and by way of an … Continue reading

Food for thought, sent from “Patriot64’s” iPhone… The story of Nelson Mandela must include his time in a South African prison, as well as how that horrible period shaped his future. The destroyer of Apartheid will rightfully be remembered as a … Continue reading

Veterans Day 2013. Understanding freedom…

I’ve probably heard “it” as many times as I’ve said “it”. And having family and friends who’ve fought and even died for “it”, makes “it” all the more precious to me. Indeed my fellow Americans, “freedom is not free”. Nevertheless, … Continue reading

The fight over “God in the pledge” in the Bay State isn’t surprising. Massachusetts has long been a bastion of Progressive thought. But it reminded me of the bigger fight over freedom of religion in this country. You see, the so-called … Continue reading

There will always be ideological disagreement. It’s one of many benefits of liberty, the right of free speech and debate. I remain convinced those rights carry responsibility as well. Nevertheless, I continue to search for the reason why our nation is in … Continue reading
