“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

Cause and effect… Ah, the purposely ignorant voter and Election 2016…

Ignorance is truly bliss, isn’t it??? The ignorant voter is likely the person who thinks the “AR” in AR-15 stands for “Assault Rifle”, and/or that gun control reduces crime. The ignorant voter is likely the person who reads the indisputable … Continue reading

The People’s Republic of San Jose…

San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo is simply the poorest excuse for the people’s representative I can think of right at the moment. Immediately following violence perpetrated by a handful of thugs outside a Donald Trump rally in San Jose yesterday, … Continue reading

Aside

Bryan Stascavage served two tours in Iraq and is a 30-year-old Political Science student at Wesleyan University. He recently penned an opinion piece for the university newspaper in which he criticized the “Black Lives Matter” movement. In the op-ed Stascavage … Continue reading

“Lives matter”…

Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman summed it up rather neatly when commenting on the murder of one of his deputies. He basically told a throng of reporters gathered to hear the latest information on the investigation into Harris County Sheriff’s … 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

‘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

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

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

Merry Christmas 2014???

Is there “racism” in our country? Yes, though that word speaks to an environment which hasn’t existed in the U.S. for some time. It’s more a broad brush/excuse, used by some of less than honorable intent, to paint an incomplete … 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

What’s happening in America???

While I believe it’s prudent not to jump to conclusions regarding the shooting of Michael Brown by a Ferguson police officer until the investigation is complete, I do thinks it’s fair to say that based on some of the more recent … 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

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 State of the Obama Presidency…

I know I’m late to the party on this one. But truthfully, I’ve been a bit stymied on how to respond to the arrogance and elitism displayed by our President on Tuesday evening. Frankly, he sounded almost angry, and in … Continue reading

OMG, it’s really happened…

I was listening to the POTUS speak about the economy and his expectations for 2014 recently, and it finally hit me. If Barack Obama and his cohorts have achieved one thing, it has been to establish a foothold on the beaches … Continue reading

Change the channel…

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

“Obamacare” is symptomatic of a larger ailment…

So now your tax dollars are being spent, (to the tune of a million or so dollars), to seek out “Obamacare” success stories? And if that isn’t bad enough, we have to listen to sycophants like Juan Williams bashing anyone … Continue reading

“Hitting the nail on the head”…

Bill O’Reilly is leading the way in the cable news network wars to be sure, and has been for some time. He is obviously an intelligent man with an all-American background through which he filters much of his commentary. While there … Continue reading

The “Presidential Seal” on race…

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee summed it up best today when he said the President “missed another opportunity to bring the issue of race into context”. Not long after Barack Obama’s first election I wrote about how I didn’t vote for … Continue reading

Justice on trial…

A jury of six women took the judge’s instructions, and despite even her best efforts to sway a verdict, they apparently followed those instructions and deliberated on the facts of the case and definitions of the crimes for which George Zimmerman … Continue reading
