Book Review: America Alone by Mark Steyn

MultiCultiThumbby Brad Nelson
Excluding Thomas Sowell simply clearing his throat, probably the wisest words I’ve read of late are in Mark Steyn’s “America Alone.” Although many conservative books are too intellectualoid or but a single idea padded to fill a full-length book, Steyn’s effort is clear, interesting, and downright funny throughout.

Someday I’m Going to Grow Up and Be a Conservative

WingnutThumbby Brad Nelson
I wasn’t sure what else to call this. The above title may sound condescending, yet some people are so lost in their little make-believe Leftist worlds, they are like children lost at Disneyland waiting for their parents to pick them up at the lost and found. More » • (751 views)

The Church of Government

GoreSaintThumb2by Brad Nelson
“It is better to cherish virtue and humanity, by leaving much to free will, even with some loss of the object, than to attempt to make men mere machines and instruments of political benevolence. The world on the whole will gain by a liberty, without which virtue cannot exist.” — Edmund Burke More » • (1047 views)

Our Dishonest Amnesty

Kunk Fu Zoby Kung Fu Zu
During and after passing S.744 in the Senate, members of the “Gang of Eight” (including McCain, Graham and Schumer) made numerous claims about the bill, such as it “secures the borders,” “adds thousands of border agents,” “is not amnesty,” and “it will take ten years before illegals can become citizens.” The dishonesty of these and other claims are rebutted below.

Retro Movie Review: The Wizard of Oz

WickedWitchThumbby Brad Nelson
Movies don’t age. We do. And “Oz” is a movie that has gotten better as I’ve aged even though, strangely, it has stayed the same. As a kid, I liked it and it was a tradition to watch it at least once a year on TV, just as watching The Sound of Music or It’s a Wonderful Life remains a seasonal event to this day.

Cultural Reasons to Stop Illegal Immigration

Kunk Fu Zoby Kung Fu Zu8/14/13
Now we must ask “where do the illegal aliens come from?” While this is impossible to answer with complete certainty, it is interesting to note that according to one Arizona publication, “most (91%) deported illegal aliens come from 4 countries: More » • (1434 views)

Drug is Our Love

DrugCrazyThumbby RobL
I was going to rant about the threat seemingly innocuous parking meters pose but that will have to wait until another day… I was flabbergasted by an article yesterday on Yahoo! And the implications are rather frightening. More » • (3407 views)

A Few More Words Regarding Socialism

ObamaSocialismby Brad Nelson  8/13/13
First and foremost, socialism is a way for people to legally steal from others. Part of human nature is to try to gain any advantage over others that you can. And we humans are not above “polite” thievery. Another word for “spread the wealth” is “pilfer from others.” More » • (2079 views)

What Are The Monetary Costs Of Amnesty?

Kunk Fu Zoby Kung Fu Zu
In my previous posts, I have gone over the risks amnesty presents to the Republican Party as well as Americans’ beliefs on amnesty in general. In this piece, I would like to look briefly into what the economic costs/benefits would be for the country as a whole. More » • (1058 views)

Habemus Papam

Pope Francis Holds His Weekly General Audienceby Geoph2

On Avatars

GeorgeWashingtonArtby RobL
When people ponder ‘patriotic’ cities, I’d wager New York City doesn’t make their list. After all, there is Philadelphia, Boston, and Washington DC to contend with. And while there’s a lot one can say about the Big Apple, it’s likely not in a conversation about our nation’s founding. That’s a mistake, for a visit to New York can be quite patriotically inspiring.

Reconquering the Discourse—Part 2: Disarming Atheistic Smugness

VoltaireThumbby Monsieur Voltaire
If there’s one thing that I find more annoying than dreaming it’s Friday and waking up on Monday, is a proselytizing atheist. You know who I’m talking about: the frump with the footed Darwin fish on her Prius (as if somehow the mechanism of evolution and a God setting it in motion were logically incompatible), the mouth-breathing idiot sharing “I f**king love science” nonsense on Facebook More » • (2414 views)
