Habemus Papam

Pope Francis Holds His Weekly General Audienceby Geoph2
We have a pope. Four words that shape a world.

The last time they were proclaimed, they announced Pope Francis. And as with any change, it marked not an end, but a beginning. More » • (2513 views)

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 » • (2526 views)

Movie Review: The Dish

The Dish Thumbby Brad Nelson
Do you remember that episode of Seinfeld where George Constanza is trying for the trifecta? He’s trying to combine sex, food, and TV, his three favorite things. That’s what this movie is for me. It combines three of my favorite things: movies, the Apollo program, and  quirky rural foreign-set movies. More » • (735 views)

Light, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Hemlock

HemlockThumbby RobL
I’d like to dedicate my first article to briefly explaining the reasoning behind my column’s title: Light, Liberty and the Pursuit of Hemlock. It represents a personal ode to the pillars of Western Civilization and its greatest political tradition currently represented as modern conservatism.* The pillars being the ancient Hebrews, ancient Greek Civilization, and the accumulated wisdom, writings and works of our Founders.

Some Truth About Amnesty

Kunk Fu Zoby Kung Fu Zu
In my previous piece, I laid out why amnesty would be suicide for the Republican Party. With this and future pieces, I will rebut the claims that “immigration reform,” aka “amnesty,” would be good for the country as well as the lie that Americans demand to have the problem solved now.

Movie Review: The Great Debaters

“His (Lynch’s) methods were very simple, but they were diabolical. Keep the slave physically strong but psychologically weak and dependent on the slave master. Keep the body. Take the mind.” More » • (1772 views)

Three Kids’ Movies (That Adults Might Like Too)

SkyHighThumbby Brad Nelson
The Spiderwick Chronicles
This movie, without seemingly trying, becomes a mystical, magical, fairy tale. It gets a nice assist from music by James Horner. Although this movie’s humor is often in the form of a couple of rambunctious goblins who aren’t particularly clever, that doesn’t harm this movie which is otherwise smart and never predictable, although a few of the elements are basic movie clichés.

Is the Left’s Tea-Party Demonization Strategy Changing?

The Western and the West

JohnWayneThumbby Brad Nelson
America was built upon the idea of living your life within the confines that you build for yourself. Puritans. Quakers. The Amish. Mennonites. Frontiersmen (and women). The entire smorgasbord. America was a magnet for those looking for the freedom to live out their lives without undue interference. More » • (742 views)
