Civil Life Gospel

Saturday, June 11th, 2016

From my friend Resa Willis…READ THIS NOW! A Call to Action Invaluable is life, and immeasurable is liberty. Yet our liberties are being weighed, they are being measured, and our liberties are most assuredly found wanting. James Madison, who stated “I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by […]

Almost…ALMOST THERE…and then he had to go there…

Friday, June 10th, 2016

I’ve heard since the Convention that we need to put Pistolgate behind us. Austin Petersen has encouraged us, his supporters, to put it behind us and come together to support the party in hopes of ballot access because of the loathing in the country for the old party candidates.I had just about convinced myself to […]

This could be big…

Sunday, May 29th, 2016

I and others have been made aware of an incident in Orlando following the Libertarian Convention that may be of interest to the sons and daughters of Liberty amongst us.  Whether or not it will impact your vote is strictly based on your commitment to your Principles.  In my mind  Principles trump ballot access…but others […]

Gary Johnson runs away with the Libertarian Nomination. Sad day for the LP.

Sunday, May 29th, 2016

Austin Petersen was rejected by the Libertarian Party today but he still has my sword in the fights to come. O Captain!  My Captain! By Walt Whitman O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done, The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won, The port is near, the bells I […]

RedState Interviews Austin Petersen

Monday, May 9th, 2016

A good look into Austin Petersen’s thoughts on a wide swath of issues.  Worth a look even for the Sander’s supporters.

North Carolina “Pottygate” and Federal Threats

Monday, May 9th, 2016

So…lemme see if I got this right.  North Carolina passes a bill into law, the Feds take issue with the law and sue North Carolina, North Carolina sues them right back, and then the Feds threaten to halt Federal Funding to North Carolina while this is adjudicated?  Ya know…I don’t really care what the primary […]

A new beginning…

Saturday, May 7th, 2016

Five years and five months ago I abandoned this blog.  I was busy with the Tea Party and was writing for a few other outlets and just couldn’t justify the time here.  Now, in the wake of the Megalomaniac Primary contests of the GOP and DEM parties I find myself with much to say and […]

Time to Educate ourselves – Free Audio Books

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

For those of you who may not have time to sit down with a book but always seem to have an MP3 player rolling, here’s a couple selections worthy of your time: Federalist Papers:  http://www.archive.org/details/federalist_papers_librivox The Federalist Papers were a series of pamphlets written mostly anonymously at the time to convince the people, of New […]

Nobel Prize

Friday, October 9th, 2009

This is a joke.  Mr. Nobel is once again spinning in his grave.  This is a far cry from the intended purpose of the Nobel Peace Prize…a President having accomplished absolutely nothing in his brief 10 months in office beyond inviting known marxists and pedophiles into the Whitehouse Staff doesn’t deserve such an award.  What […]

Humana and Free Speech

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

Humana sent a note to its customers holding Medicare Advantage policies explaining the impact on the health insurance reform plan.  They told their customers that benefits would but cut as part of the plan.  HotAir reports the Congressional budget office tells us today that Humana is correct.  Unfortunately for Humana, the Administration isn’t concerned about […]

Some have asked why I refocused…

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

THIS is why.  Men like that Corpsman.  Purple heart recipients who honor us all by gleefully return to their comrades, leaving young wives and children behind,  for the sole purpose of “saving Marines”. Sure wish the President recognized these fine heros.  I wish the President would support them and their commander by supporting the surge […]

President Obama weak on Afghanistan

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

Via HotAir: Charles Krauthammer nails the President on the “policy” in Afghanistan.  God Help us and our Warrior Class. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxi2IILt8sk&feature=player_embedded And now from Blackfive as well.  Glad I’m in excellent company. I’m squarely with Krauthammer on this.  We have no cart and we have no horse.  General McChrystal has privately called for a surge in […]

15 abortions in 16 years…the Book.

Monday, September 21st, 2009

I found this link in the article section at Hotair.  I spent a good 30 minutes crafting my comment there.  Ms. Vilar seems to be concerned for her safety after publishing her book.  I will not be a party to threats directed at Ms. Vilar and pre-emptively condemn anyone who might cause her any heartache […]

Presidential Exposure and our National Discourse

Monday, September 21st, 2009

Over the past couple weeks President Obama has been making the rounds on the various legacy media outlets trying to pitch his case for his Health Insurance Reform plan.  He doesn’t seem to understand that the case has been made and rejected by the American people.  Perhaps he does understand it and now he is […]
