Sailing The Republic

A government or republic is often called the state and sometimes when describing the workings and objectives of government it is called figuratively ship of state. USS America has sailed geopolitical seas for nigh on 12 score {240yrs/10 generations} staying seaworthy with good mission all that time. She’s served her ship’s complement well, bringing them safe through seas calm or rough near many hostile shores with little...

Controversies: {PC} {EC} {BRC}

We all know about PC, or political correctness. It’s been around 50yrs, maybe more, taking to task our daily conversations, butting in when insensitivity/intolerance rear their ugly heads. But to be clear, potentially offending someone without realizing it could be ignorant or clumsy and not a mean-spirited dig. Back in the day we had Orwell’s 1984 and his thought police. Instead of Scifi we now have an arbitrary 3rdparty...

American Collide-A-Scope

A kaleidoscope works to arrange random bits of glass into an endless array of patterns which are curious to the eye and marvelous to behold. This simple device changes randomness into order and visual artistry,  just as government tries to focus the noise/hubbub of millions of opinions into a coherent body politic. Pieces of glass are the stuff of kaleidoscopes; small constituencies the stuff of government. As you add more...

No-Wall Left Ulterior Motives, Political Deceits

For years the open border duo of Schumer-Pelosi along with their leftist pals and the full support of mainstream media have described illegals as hard-working, law abiding, self-supporting and highly deserving of an opportunity to become legal residents with a path to citizenship. They’ve numbered them in the 10-12 million range for decades, downplaying their impact and claiming they don’t really cost us that much. They...

Where There’s A Will There’s A Wall

Let’s be clear: sovereignty is not negotiable! The more than half of us who still have our wits aren’t amenable to open borders or an open floodgates immigration policy. The world’s masses don’t gulp down Coke “ singing in p-e-r-f-e-c-t   h-a-r-m-o-n-y ” and won’t be doing so in a hundred lifetimes, so all you camp counselors out there sorry, but it ain’t gonna happen. Borders protect sovereignty and...

Righting Wrongs

Those who read me know I feel there are a lot of problems in our society today. Too many believe we’ve outgrown our capitalist model, even the democracy-driven republic in which it works. They say our constitution is too old, outdated and want a new form of governance offering financially-aligned equal outcomes and social justice. They crave a more equitable society where people of all colors, backgrounds and abilities can...
