Some things can’t be fully appreciated unless compared to their opposites. We hold light dear because its absence is darkness. Crisp autumn mornings are sweeter when compared to summer’s searing heat. Likewise, reward can’t be fully valued without risk. The connection between risk and reward is a common element in economic and personal liberty, which […]

What Will the Next American Revolution Look Like?

Threats against liberty are as old as liberty itself, and all too common. Sometimes the menace is a foreign invader bent on conquest. Such are easily identifiable and opposed. The more nefarious threats exist within our borders, arising from the very institutions established to secure our rights. Such hazards inevitably generate rumors of secret concentration […]

Senseless Violence And The Second Amendment

It can be argued that mankind is nature’s perfect contradiction. We seldom consider issues for which there are logical conclusions. Yet when confronted with senseless violence we’ll make vain attempts to rationalize irrationality. But no matter how hard we work, satisfactory results are unachievable. Explaining the unexplainable is like pushing breakers back into the ocean. […]

Congressional Chin Music

Roger Clemens’ trail is over and he has been cleared of all steroids and perjury charges. The verdict opens the door for the “Rocket’s” detractors to cry foul while his defenders validate his storied career. So it goes with celebrity trials. Each side remains convinced of their rightness no matter the evidence or the jury’s […]

Let’s Hope Team BO Is Right About Romney

Obama’s latest campaign strategy, outlined by White House advisor David Plouffe, is rather baffling. The goal is to depict Mitt Romney as the Republican Party’s most conservative nominee since Barry Goldwater. Apparently, the Obama camp has forgotten Ronald Reagan. That’s especially ironic considering that Democrats gave Reagan’s conservatism its greatest confirmation. What better proof of […]

Odds Against John Edwards’ Rehabilitation

The justice system is apparently through with John Edwards. But according to the former Senator and presidential candidate, God isn’t. If the Almighty needs a helping hand, Edwards — the legal albatross removed from his neck — is ready to help. He began rehabilitating his image the minute his trial concluded, vowing his devotion to […]

All Corporations Aren’t Created Equal

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.” What about corporations? Apparently, some corporations are more equal than others, or perhaps some are “people” whereas others aren’t. It depends on how an individual corporation’s political twig is bent. A federal judge recently issued an injunction against a Texas law that […]

Dealing With Racial Slurs The NHL Way

Most people look to the South whenever a case of racial intolerance makes headlines. While that stereotype isn’t unfounded, the days when black Southerners — and black Americans overall — were legally relegated to second-class status are gone. Our black countrymen can come and go as they please, even attending NASCAR races at Talladega, Alabama. […]

Minister Farrakhan, The Human Conch Shell

Most people believe you can hear the ocean roar if you place a conch shell to your ear. I’ve always thought the sound was more like a steady and annoying wind, the kind that blows endlessly in no particular direction. When you think about it in that light, Louis Farrakhan is quite like a conch […]

Racism With A Side Of Fries

Ever wonder how a post-racial America might look? Well, keep wondering. Not only is racism a perpetual human flaw common to all races, but some people will find it when it needn’t be sought. They’ll look where it’s least expected, where no normal person would notice, where Burger King filmed a commercial with Mary J. […]
