As children we passed the time pretending to be grown ups. We were doctors or cowboys or ballerinas or truck drivers. We built forts and made up languages. We played school. We imagined our way through grand adventures – and then, little by little, we turned into adults. More » • (50 views)

Death, Tents, and Redemption

by Brad Nelson4/19/19
This is one of those times where I’m going to ignore the common of advice of “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.” But so much goes left unsaid in our insane culture. And so much that should never be said is amplified by media megaphone. So I’m going to chance it. More » • (63 views)

Passover 2019

by Steve Lancaster4/16/19
I admit being a secular Jew, also a Marine and retired officer of CIA. I hold citizenship as a native born American and returned Israeli. To my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren I have taught that Passover is not an event that happened some 3000 years ago but is happening now in our daily lives. More » • (141 views)

Mourning Notre Dame

by Deana Chadwell4/15/19
The news this morning that the Notre Dame Cathedral was on fire knocked the breath out of me. I was amazed at my emotional reaction to the destruction of a building I’ve never visited, a building created by the corrupt medieval Roman Catholic church, a building so old that it should be irrelevant – but it isn’t.  We’re all heartbroken. Why? More » • (178 views)

What do we Know and How do we Know it?

by Deana Chadwell3/19/19
As I sit here writing, a terrible thing is happening. It started mid-week, but there’s nothing being reported on the national news.  No TV cameras or on-the-street interviews. I saw blurbs on Drudge and Breitbart this morning (Sunday), but no big fuss. More » • (149 views)

Wagons Ho

by Brad Nelson3/15/19
Some friends of mine recently moved from Libtardville to The Frontier. I won’t tell you which frontier or which people because I told them I would keep them anonymous (thus the mangling of pronouns as we go along). More » • (101 views)

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

by Deana Chadwell3/9/19
These concepts – life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness – are dear, or once were dear, to the hearts of all Americans. These are the sacred rights of all human beings  — “sacred” because they are God-given and are not derived from government, rather government’s only mandate is to provide cover for those rights.

Kudos to AOC

by Deana Chadwell2/9/19
I am guilty of speaking badly of the new congresswoman from New York. She is obviously the product of failing educational systems unable to do anything but pump her full of fatuous self-esteem. I’d lay odds she has a large box of participation trophies in her parents’ basement. More » • (339 views)

Oh, the Horror

by Steve Lancaster1/28/19
It is time I came clean to the awfulness. I attended public schools in the 50s and 60s, not only that but in the South. According to some it is a wonder that I can walk and chew gum at the same time. More » • (116 views)

Truth or Dare

by Deana Chadwell1/19/19
More and more any foray into the news feels like a trip to Bedlam – rational thought is nowhere to be found; the inmates are screeching inanities, drooling at the mouth, and throwing excrement – both literally and figurative – at anyone who dares to speak truth More » • (165 views)

Christian Appropriation

by Deana Chadwell1/4/19
This mess at our southern border is stirring up the Sunday school wannabes again, and as a Christian and a conservative I am getting tired of being schooled by liberal Christians and non-believers about what my opinions should be, about what Jesus would do. More » • (226 views)
