A minarchist deontological libertarian AND a pre-Vatican II Catholic?

Posted: April 15, 2012 at 1:10 pm   /   Politics, Videos

Gosh, that sounds an awful lot the the beginning of a very abstruse joke: “A minarchist deontological libertarian AND a pre-Vatican II Catholic walk into a bar . . .” But it isn’t. In fact, the minarchist deontological libertarian and a pre-Vatican II Catholic are the same person. In an earlier post on the subject of conservatism, libertarianism, […]

Sharia Skylines

Posted: April 13, 2012 at 12:55 pm   /   Politics

Have you noticed that the Occupy Wall Street crowd has specifically singled out bankers as the wealthy fat cats to be demonized?  This spotlight has always seemed strange to me, because wealth springs from many different industries, creating everything from software and telephone magnates to titans of real estate and retail. Given that numerous connections have been […]

As Canada goes, so goes America

Posted: March 27, 2012 at 12:30 pm   /   Politics

I’m well aware that every radio talk show host insists he has the smartest listeners, but I suspect I have the smartest readers.  I don’t say that simply because they’re wise enough to read what I write, which would certainly be a strong indicator, but because I read what they write. For instance, I recently […]

Occupiers dump more feces, whine about their free speech

Posted: March 22, 2012 at 10:45 am   /   Politics

If you thought that an incident involving the Occupy movement and feces was and outlier—the sort of thing that might just happen once—think again. Last year, we had to put two different stories of Occupiers and feces into a single post: You will know them by their fruits. It seems this is a thing they do. […]

A Few More Reasons to Send Obama Packing

Posted: March 7, 2012 at 3:10 pm   /   Politics

I sometimes think that Republicans are genetically compelled to bring water pistols to a gun fight.  While I acknowledge that it’s difficult to combat the bully pulpit the Left commands, thanks to a corrupt media, I really am sick and tired of hearing Mitch McConnell referring to “Our friends on the other side of the […]

Still the Land of the Free?

Posted: January 31, 2012 at 2:00 pm   /   Elections, Politics

There seem to be two kinds of Americans.  There are those who wish this nation could once again be what it used to be, a beacon for those who cherished freedom and liberty.  Then there are those who look at America and wish it could be more like Cuba, of all places.  Or if not […]

Unlike Occupy Wall Street, the Tea Party has made its demands very clear.

Tea Party greets President Obama in Arizona

Posted: January 31, 2012 at 4:16 am   /   Elections, Politics

The following photos were taken at the Intel facility in Chandler, AZ  on January 25 during President Obama’s visit.  Rumors of the Tea Party’s demise may have been greatly exaggerated. Given that the President’s visit was an unofficial campaign stop, one has to look at these photos and wonder if it was an entirely wasted […]

Defending capitalism and the 1%

Posted: January 21, 2012 at 3:30 pm   /   Politics

Back in Early December, Bradley Schiller wrote an op-ed in the LA Times in which he pointed out a simple fact: “Occupy Wall Street has said it’s the 99% of ‘us’ against the 1% of ‘them.’ But many of ‘them’ started out like ‘us’ and have brought us great innovations that we embrace.” The late Steve […]
