Supreme Incompetency On The High Court

A Supreme Court justice should present an image of intelligence, competence, and wisdom. Such qualities identify sound judgment and inspire public trust. But two of SCOTUS’s “progressive” purists have sullied that image. In fact, we might wonder if a grasp on reality remains requisite for a seat on the high bench. During ObamaCare arguments Justice […]

Lights, Camera, Sharpton!

The classic image of the Hollywood movie set features a gruff director — wearing a beret and chomping a cigar — bellowing, “Lights, camera, action!” The actors then perform their roles. In Sanford, Florida the director might shout, “Lights, camera, Sharpton!” Although Al Sharpton is a devout blowhard, let’s give the devil his due. Whenever […]

Pity The Poor Working Chump

Fifty years’ worth of war on poverty has produced little benefit, save for a few valuable lessons. For instance, we’ve learned about the valiant struggle the disadvantaged wage against capitalist oppression. The homeless, the hungry, and the downtrodden are victims of free market greed. But there’s one participant in Washington’s war on poverty who’s routinely […]

Obama Is No Ron Paul

The Republican presidential nomination process is more than half complete, meaning Ron Paul’s supporters must face a hard fact. Their candidate won’t be the nominee. His delegate count is one-tenth that of Mitt Romney and only Maine has awarded Paul double-digit delegates. Even when Paul wins, he loses. That’s not to say Rep. Paul is […]

Time To Bury The Birther Theories

Once a conspiracy theory takes root nothing deters its adherents. Evidence contrary to the speculation is summarily dismissed as another brick in the conspirer’s wall of secrecy. Thus, the plot thickens. Now that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has released details questioning the birth certificate Obama produced last year, birthers could become revitalized. While Arpaio’s […]

Obama And The Audacity Of Fairness

Genuine fairness conveys nothing more than the opportunity to use one’s talents and ideas unhindered by legalized oppression. But that notion of fairness has changed. In fact, “fairness” has become one of the English language’s most corrupt words. ‚Ä®Contemporary fairness is measured not in equality before the law, the opportunity to better oneself, or the […]

Raising Children Of The State

King Solomon wrote in his Proverbs: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Solomon intended for parents to base their children’s future on the Creator’s morals and integrity. A child’s mind is a sponge. Filling those sponges with worthwhile attributes — […]

The Santorum Conundrum

Mitt Romney has withstood every challenge to date, remaining the only constant in the Republican nomination race. There are legitimate reasons for his consistency. Romney is photogenic, has proven business skills, can manage a budget, and heads a campaign flush with cash. The sum total of these assets is the demise of everyone, thus far, […]

One Fine Day On The Tarmac

Air Force One sparkled beneath the brilliant Arizona sun as President Obama and Governor Jan Brewer met one fine day on the tarmac. Then, for no reason, Brewer spat on Obama’s foot. Oh, she didn’t? Then she asked him for a shoeshine. No? Did her dog mark Air Force One’s tires? Wrong again? So what […]

Containing Iran and Maintaining Peace

No serious person can perceive Iran as anything but an enemy. From the Iran Hostage Crisis to the Ayatollahs’ vision of a world without America, Iran habitually provokes the United States. Recent events aren’t likely to warm the relationship. In fact, the Persian Gulf is simmering toward a boil. Naval exercises in the Persian Gulf, […]
