The point Christians defending KY clerk are missing

Is this the most pivotal presidential election of your life?

A friend asked this question of me today.  It brought to memory all the radio and television talk show hosts who proclaim each election cycle that "this election is the most important of your life time".  I suppose they aren't wrong.  Each new election brings new rippling consequences, all of which … [Read more...]

What does Ferguson tell us about resisting the government?

Pro-illegal immigration hypocrisy

Many on the political left, who support the influx of illegals across our southern border, often deride those who oppose an open door immigration policy as simply being racist nativists.  They point out what, to them, looks to be an inconsistency: remember when the white European illegal immigrants … [Read more...]

How the political left views the wealthy summed up

Today's Dilbert comic strip pretty much sums up how the left views the wealthy. Well, how they view businessmen who are wealthy. You see, they don't hold the same animus toward athletes, music and movie stars that they do toward CEOs. It kind of tells you what they consider work worthy of its wages. … [Read more...]

Oops! After voter ID law passed, minority turnout increased

voter turnout 1

Patent revocation for Washington Redskins strictly a political witch hunt

Women’s birth control is none of your business, but…

protest 1

The protesters slamming the Hobby Lobby decision haven't thought through their protest signage, obviously. It seems to be lost on these people that at the same time they claim their sex life/bodies/personal decisions are none of their employer's business, they also seem to think … [Read more...]

Hobby Lobby still provides contraception

There's quite a lot coming from the political left about the "controversial" ruling handed down by the Supreme Court about the contraception mandate.  They are taking to Twitter to lament the Christian imposed sharia law facilitated by the Court.  There's the renewed war on women, the denial of … [Read more...]

Before championing a living wage, you must address this

I hear a lot of demand for a living wage. Usually as campaign season is coming into swing. The discussion is always steered away from the most important questions. When discussing people "only" make minimum wage, we don't we ask why a minimum wage job is the only kind of job an able bodied adult is … [Read more...]

Liberal memes debunked: welfare irony

welfare irony

  Could this be true?  What if it is?  I found this on the Facebook page "Being Liberal" and they do a great job of playing fast and loose with actual facts. The first implication is that white republicans think using food stamps (SNAP) is wrong.  Well, no they don't.  They -- I -- don't like … [Read more...]

Liberalism is always on the wrong side of life

This need not be a long post in order to convey a recent observation concerning liberalism and life.  They always seem to be on the wrong side of it. Liberalism is pro-abortion.  Elective abortion intentionally takes the life of innocent human beings for reasons of convenience and … [Read more...]

Georgia’s new gun allowances, what could go wrong? Nothing, actually

Georgia's governor just signed into law a bill which broadens the areas in which legal gun owners may carry their firearms, including some schools, bars, and churches.

Yesterday the Justices of the Supreme Court upheld Michigan's constitutional amendment to prohibit universities to consider race as a qualifying factor in their admission process.  The decision solidifies a principle that the political left champions yet never supports.  They always seem to oppose … [Read more...]

Would Progressives still defend welfare if they had to pay recipients directly?

A recent report shows that 86 million private sector workers are helping sustain 148 million Americans who draw from the system through social programs.

Funding schools doesn’t help students learn

student performance

What could possibly account for the disparity between the United States' spending more than any other country when it comes to education, and the lack of increased performance?  If you listen to our politicians, it’s because we are not spending enough on our country's "most valuable resource".
