Socialism Has Never Worked and Can’t

SocialismThumbby Michael Greer   8/14/14
We often hear that “the only reason socialism has never worked” is that the “wrong people” were “in charge.” I always wonder what angels the leftists think don’t have donors or special interest groups they are beholden to. More » • (2052 views)

The Prodigal and The Political

ProdigalSonThumbby Glenn Fairman   12/17/13
In the parable of the Prodigal Son, the reprobate descends to the squalor of the pigsty before he comes to his senses, repents, and returns to the Father. It is in the concrete realization that one has either abysmally squandered his resources or that his poor choices will soon seal his destruction, that true life altering changes can be made.

Christmas Thoughts and Wishes

by Brad Nelson   12/17/13

…it bears recalling. Communist espionage not only distorted American war decisions but, far more significantly, eroded the pillars of Western civilization: the capacity to reason based on firm convictions about right and wrong, and to grasp that good cannot align with evil without losing its way. — Andy McCarthy

There are Lies, Damned Lies and Democrats

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke  10/31/13
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer certainly is a creative man.

Socialism Makes a House Call

SocialismThumbby Brad Nelson  10/29/13
A guy called my office a couple days ago. His tone was a bit odd and condescending. But in this economy, you can’t be too picky. The fellow said he had a logo and business card design that he needed help with. In an odd way, he was subtly confrontational when there was no need to be. I just put it down to his nerves.

The Synoptic Media: Speaking Lies on Behalf of Power

NewsMediaPoisonThumbby Timothy Lane
I refer to the major news sources as the synoptic media, a term I adapted from Biblical studies. Just as the synoptic gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke are very similar (though not identical) in basic content and viewpoint (and very different from John), so the NBC/CBS/ABC/CNN/PBS combination More » • (2433 views)

The Monkey’s Parable

MonkeyBananaby Glenn Fairman
I have always been astonished by the tale of how certain Asian tribes catch monkeys. Upon placing a piece of fruit into a hole carved in a tree trunk that the monkey can easily reach his hand in and grab, he soon alarmingly learns that he cannot extract his closed fist from the trap once he has taken hold of his prize.

NurseRatchedby Glenn Fairman
