Snowflake Sweater

by Pat Tarzwell12/17/18

Sandy and I were invited to an ugly sweater party last Friday night, and I went to Walmart to get myself an ugly sweater (but it turns out I am too cheap to spend $12 on a one used sweater). More » • (166 views)

Re-Imagining Christmas

by Brad Nelson12/7/18

Christmas is too commercial. Check. It’s been all but outlawed in our atheistic “sensitive” culture. Check. And many who do try to celebrate at least the forms of it (if they are honest) see Jesus more as a health guru, the ticket to longer (perhaps eternal) life. Check. More » • (207 views)

End of the World, Take One

by Timothy Lane12/6/18

Decades ago, I read a darkly humorous story by Robert Silverberg that seems today to be rather prophetic. Titled “When We Went to See the End of the World”, it’s set mostly in a party and involves the conversation there. More » • (36 views)

Exclusionary Principles

by James Ray Deaton9/3/18

In some ways I must be an incredibly naive person. The whole week-long John McCain politicized funeral farewell tour was sad and even disturbing on many levels, but the sidebar news stories about President Trump and Sarah Palin being asked not to attend his services was especially so.

Jonah Goldberg (a firm never-Trumper) had an article the other day that further clarified for me the Trump dynamic. More » • (424 views)

Tonight, there will be another installment of the Roseanne show. I will not be watching. I never watched the original show, and this is just more of the same. Much has been said, printed and spread all over the media about the current incarnation. That somehow it is a conservative voice in the progressive wilderness. It is not. More » • (126 views)

Hot Coffee

by Brad Nelson4/19/18

My opinion on the following matter is formed from the content of these three articles: Starbucks sets up re-education camps for baristas by M. Catharine Evans, Why We Shouldn’t Trivialize The Starbucks Arrests by Sarah Quinlan, and some background information about the barista in question, Holly Hylton (sounds like one of Trump’s women), that was presented as a link by a poster.

Peace, Love, and Helter Skelter

by Tim Jones11/21/17

What do Bill Clinton, Harvey Weinstein, and Charles Manson all Have in Common? The sixties.  •  Roger Simon recently wrote a commentary titled Bill Clinton: Godfather of Weinstein and Roy Moore. The premise of his essay is that Clinton changed the culture that paved the way for the bad behavior and all of the other sexual misconduct in the political, entertainment and media realms that seems to be flowing out into the public like a broken dike: More » • (226 views)

Insurance Devils

by Brad Nelson11/13/17

There’s a reason I’m not a Democrat. People makes mistakes. And very often, those mistakes can be corrected. The world should not generally be completely re-ordered because something bad happened to one person, one time. No amount of laws and bureaucracy can ever keep one bad thing from happening to one person. More » • (220 views)

Pat’s Search for the Lost Conservative Island

by Brad Nelson11/13/17

In another thread (I tried to find it…it’s lost as well) we were talking about setting up our own Conservative Island of Utopia. I would be your benevolent banana-republic dictator. I think Pat was going to be Director of Tours and Oiling of the Greeter Ladies, although the details are not fresh in memory. More » • (305 views)
