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.

In reality its holding/improving status quo versus dismantling the basic structure of our republic and society, changing it into something new. I’ve previously stressed immigration, education, news...

Last Last Hurrah?

The silent majority spoke loud and clear, rejecting this administration and its heir apparent. But we can’t ignore a worrisome reality: we lost the popular vote by millions .  . A state by state review shows more red than blue, but the...

Reproving Roger

Last week I posted an article On The Matter of Society and as usual forwarded it to about thirty friends and interested parties who make up my primary readership. Included are several liberal-progressive persons who always take issue with my conservative views, Roger being one. He’s a Brit residing in UK and a friend of 40yrs. In the article I highlight what I consider are basic differences between the liberal v...
