Derelictionby Steve Lancaster    2/26/14
By H.R. McMaster  •  A service member who is derelict has willfully refused to perform his duties (or follow a given order) or has incapacitated himself in such a way that he cannot perform his duties.

Do We Really Have a Voice?

Voiceby Leigh Bravo   2/26/14
I have always been interested in Politics, and have always voted my conscience. However, in the past 4 years, I have become more politically active as I have seen our Country “fundamentally changed” into something I no longer recognize. More » • (1562 views)

Why Obama is Uneducated

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   2/26/14
A few years ago I participated in a radio debate on “white privilege” with a certain man, whose name is unimportant, who had a Ph.D. in “ethnic studies.” At one point he introduced an argument by saying, “If whites are 80 percent of the population…,” More » • (2180 views)

Book Review: James Madison

JamesMadisonRBby Steve Lancaster    2/24/14
By Richard Brookhiser  •  The steps of the main library of The College of New Jersey at Princeton are worn smooth and have been impacted by thousands of students over two hundred years. One can imagine the history of these students and their professors. Somewhere on these steps little James Madison must have trod. More » • (2909 views)

America’s “Tools” of Engagement

marcusluttrellby Glenn Fairman   2/22/14
No set of rules can exist without pinching our freedom of action, and in effect, administering some semblance of restriction or pain. And when we bring our rules and values down from their lofty seats of abstraction, we find sometimes that they can lead to our undoing. More » • (2172 views)

Grave of a Warrior

OldSoldierby Steve Lancaster    2/22/14
It happens several times a year, mostly when we are traveling and almost always in my beloved South. Someone will notice my Vietnam veteran hat and quietly thank me for service. More » • (1251 views)

Same-Sex Marriage, Paganism, the Founders, and Natural Law

SameSexThumbby Trevor Thomas   1/18/14
In the ongoing debate on the definition of marriage, I have made it clear more than once that both sides are making a moral argument, and thus it is futile for anyone to decry the “legislating of morality.” More » • (5221 views)

Job-lock and the Desperate Spin

JobLockby Deana Chadwell    2/21/14
I am so grateful to Obama and Pelosi and Reid. They have, with the passage of only one law, returned us to the Garden of Eden. For over 6,000 years of world history human beings have struggled to survive, working our selves to disease and death, trading our little time on this earth just for enough food to live to work another day.

Movie Review: Ender’s Game

Enderby Brad Nelson   2/21/14
I read this novel by Orson Scott Card about ten years ago or so. And I considered it then about one or two notches above mediocre. It was certainly readable, but it was not what I considered upper-tier sci-fi. More » • (3120 views)

Suing Americans under International Law — in American Courts

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   2/20/14
Imagine you go overseas and give a speech advocating a cause, only to come home and find you’re being sued for “crimes against humanity.” No, what you did wasn’t illegal under American law or under the laws of the nation in which you expressed your words. More » • (1217 views)

Grace of America

Graceby Steve Lancaster   2/19/14
Frederick Jackson Turner proposed in the 1890’s that the frontier was the embodiment of the American character. He presents the frontier as a special element of the American experience; however, it is not the physical frontier but a more ephemeral concept of the people that make up the special nature of America.

Mini-Series Review: Apparitions

Apparitionsby Brad Nelson   2/18/14
Imagine a Catholic-themed television series produced in the UK that is (all things considered) kind to Christian beliefs and hostile to atheism. You might think I am in need of an exorcism myself for suggesting that such a thing could exist, especially in the UK. More » • (3181 views)
