A new way to spell tyranny: TYRNC.

BananaRepublicTrumpby Pat Tarzwell5/27/16
Editor’s note: This is stream-of-consciousness writing by Mr. Tarzwell, fresh from a red-eye flight as a delegate to the Republican National Convention. I don’t have time to clean up the spelling nor do I want to. This gives you a glimpse of a man tired, abused, and beaten by scoundrels, but still trudging on (we hope). More » • (106 views)

Do You Lock Your Doors At Night?

WireFenceby Leigh Bravo7/18/16
Do you lock your doors at night? If you answered yes to this question, then tell me why? Do you lock them in order to keep out those you don’t know or those who might intend you harm? Do you lock them so strangers cannot enter your house at anytime of day or night? More » • (224 views)

How to Love Yourself Like a Man

LettersToHannahby Jeremy Egerer7/18/16
Richard Baxter, whom I consider to be the greatest of the Puritan ministers, once wrote in The Reformed Pastor that the likelihood of a deathbed conversion was extremely rare.  The reason that he knew this was simple.  A lot of people on their deathbeds simply refused to die. More » • (77 views)

The Age of Bad Reasons

LettersToHannahby Jeremy Egerer7/17/16
When a magazine like The Atlantic asks its readers whether they think reason or emotions are currently dominating the public discourse, I’m worried to see what the response is. Not only because I have very little faith in the people who are giving the answer, but because I have very little faith in the quality of the question. More » • (117 views)

The Path of Good Intent

PathOfGoodIntentby Glenn Fairman7/9/16
During the heyday of our republic’s more exacting youth, when the circumspection of men who would rule still pointed in the direction of prudent liberty, the apologetics of vice could gain little traction once the rug was turned back More » • (180 views)

My annual summertime boonie-bouncing Jeep trip into the more empty Western places found me on the Applegate Trail through High Rock Canyon in northwest Nevada. Most of an old pioneer road, the Applegate Trail, is still there pretty much as the pioneers traveled it in the 1800’s — remote and rocky More » • (133 views)
