A Job to Do

WorkEthhicby Steve Lancaster   1/8/14
Not long ago I was visiting with my grandson and his family. We had left post housing for the NCO club and were enjoying a few beers. My grandson had recently returned from the sandbox, for the third time, and with a few of his friends we were telling stories of Army and Marines from Vietnam to Iraq. More » • (1550 views)

Movie Review: Open Range (2003)

OpenRangeThumbby Brad Nelson   1/7/14
Despite the big skies and big shoot-outs, this movie comes at you in more of a whisper. This is considered part of Robert Duvall’s western trilogy, including Lonesome Dove and Broken Trail, both of which are outstanding series. More » • (2302 views)

Clever Beasts Who Have Lost Their Claws

devolutionby Glenn Fairman   1/6/14
In fashioning animals from the generations of men, the secular regime reasons that it is only necessary to whisper into their ears the tale that they are but clever animals—ultimately answerable to no judgment more elevated than their own passions. More » • (987 views)

DIY

DIYthumbby Deana Chadwell    1/5/14
We’re Americans, therefore we love freedom. We all wave flags, light fireworks on the 4th of July, and periodically declare something unconstitutional. I hear very little talk extolling the virtues of dictatorships (Michael Moore notwithstanding), or arguing in favor of slavery, but we are divided on the issue of liberty. More » • (1323 views)

TV Series Review: Victory at Sea

VictoryAtSeaby Steve Lancaster   1/5/14
This is not so much a movie review as a series review. This is a black and white documentary of the importance of naval power and how the United States Navy defeated Japan in the Pacific. There are episodes devoted to the war in the Atlantic, but for the most part it’s a tribute to the men and women who with limited resources won the war in the Pacific. More » • (2460 views)

Movie Review: Angels with Dirty Faces (1938)

DirtyFacesThumbby Brad Nelson   1/4/14
I thought James Cagney’s best film up until now was White Heat. And it may still be. But his most iconic gangster performance is probably as the small-time hood in Angels with Dirty Faces. More » • (2076 views)

The Devil You Don’t Know

radical islamby Glenn Fairman   1/4/14
“Dwell on the past, lose an eye….” Russian Proverb  •  When we consider the specter of Islam ascending, the Left is truly conflicted. Their knee-jerk reaction is to jump on the Anti-Imperialist bandwagon and to give support to what in the 50’s and 60’s was the Pan-Arabist movement of self determination and liberation.

The Progressive Bike

BigWheelby Steve Lancaster   1/4/14
Have you ever been stopped at a light or stop sign and a person on a bike, generally but not exclusively male, whizzes through the stop without even slowing down? You observe that the rider is dressed in spandex that is altogether too tight and leaves little to be imagined, a helmet shaped like a teardrop; More » • (1156 views)

Movie Review: Elysium (2013)

ElysiumThumbby Brad Nelson   1/3/14
Unless a truly egregious bit of cultural pollution comes along (such as James Cameron’s Avatar), I’ve gotten out of the habit of reviewing bad movies. Life is just too short. If one had to comment on all the noise in this degraded Leftist culture, there wouldn’t be much time to do anything else. More » • (1668 views)
