Fun with Twitter: Fellow socialists come to Bernie Sanders’ aid

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), an an admitted socialist tweeted about unequal wealth distribution: a notion I find sinister.  The complaint rests on a presumption that wealth is distributed, and not earned.  It's almost as though Sanders and other like-minded socialists believe everyone is … [Read more...]

History: One Person At A Time

Should we say “the N-word”?

My 12 year-old daughter was telling me of a book she was reading in her Language Arts class: Warriors Don't Cry.  The book is set in Arkansas during the era of segregation as the integration of schools is implemented due to Brown v Board of Education.  So while riding in the car she blurts out, "The … [Read more...]

Obama Administration: “Criminal” = “Minority”

Even though most employers ask applicants about their criminal history, I'm not sure how many actually conduct a criminal background check.  As far as I'm concerned, employers ought to be permitted to hire any individual they deem most qualified, and reject any individual they deem unqualified. … [Read more...]

Musings of a low info voter: Some things that should NEVER be “PRIVATIZED” in a Democracy

I don't know how many of you are familiar with the Democratic Underground, but it's hilarious!  I swear, if I didn't already know these were real people who actually believe the things they write, you couldn't convince me it wasn't a satire site like the Onion, or the Daily Currant -- you know, the … [Read more...]

Obama’s oil buddies

Anyone with a car knows the financial pain of having to fill their gas tanks.  The cost of gasoline has been rising for what seems to be forever.  I remember when gas prices were high like this some time back when George W.

I am a Constitution Voter?
