Yesterday’s Commies?

I’m a victim of character assassination! My offense? Being a traditional patriotic American, and a conservative, and a constitutionalist, and a supporter of law & order. Oh, and an elderly middle class white male. All this makes me an unsympathetic elitist who doesn’t care for his fellow man, let alone the good of the country. Worse still, the charge is made over and over how my ideological bent leads toward...

V L W C

Back when Bill Clinton was getting away with his sexual predations  Hillary did his damage control. In that capacity she had a favorite expression, using it over and over again: vast right wing conspiracy. In her mind, people condemning her husband, including the women  themselves, were all right wing conspirators. There were no liberals, progressives or democrats of any kind because Рwhat? He was innocent? Attacked...

Deceits and Evils of the Left

I had my political awakening in High School. Mom was horrified. She was a first generation Russian-immigrant, dem-blue thru and thru. To her FDR and JFK were like deities. When I told her I was conservative and liked Nixon she just about croaked. How could I be so blind not to know republicans were cigar chomping, power-hungry czars of business and industry who didn’t give a damn for little guys or common folk?...

America’s Destiny

COULD THIS BE OUR DESTINY ? Political discourse? Discoarse! Reaching across the aisle? Wire-walk the Grand Canyon! Compromise? Talk to the wall! Words like conservative, traditional, republicanism, constitutionalism, even Americanism are all called into question. Why? What obnoxious purpose is at hand? Why attack the roots of our founding and precepts of our existence? Ideology, plain and simple. What started a century ago...

Societal Idiocies

Our cultural landscape is overrun with inmates running asylums. Take college campuses. Students demand safe zones for seeking refuge from the noise/intrusion of free speech! They can’t deal with opposing views so officials cave to their angst. Why? Because they feel the same angst! Colleges/universities no longer allow a free, easy exchange of ideas. They now foster one point of view: leftism-socialism. Worse still,...

Faithful Moderation

Let’s be faithful to our republic. Let’s be moderate in our politics. Obamacare was a step toward socialized medicine and socialized anything isn’t right in a capitalistic, free enterprise society, right? If we live in such society prizing freedom of choice and minimum government interference we should be wary of any policy that reduces the first or increases the second, staying faithful to our founding...
