Losing America

faded_american_flag

America as we traditionally view it, and as the founders envisioned it, is all but dead! The concepts of “one nation” and “E Pluribus Unum” (out of many, one) is silently vanishing. And, speak of the American melting pot is now the politically correct defense for protected class segregation. The melting pot analogy worked when […]

 

Hate is hate, and a crime is only a hate crime if it’s politically correct

nolen-facebook-3

America witnessed a brutal Islamic inspired beheading this past week. A second, but separate, suspect was arrested for threatening to behead a coworker. The two men self-identified as Muslim, and the latter went so far as claiming to be an agent of ISIS. Both men issued statements that exhibited a religious and racial hatred. Both […]

 

Success is a dirty word, to progressives

FailureSuccess

Elizabeth Warren’s recent speech to set the waypoints for the progressive way forward reminds me of another journey she took us on. That journey is worth revisiting to remind us of her singular vision of progressivism, devoid of the 11 point window dressing. As journeys are a metaphor for life, the road is often bumpy […]

 

Opposition to Gay Marriage is not About Hate

HoldingHands

A recent article pointed out that the Indiana GOP voted to keep traditional marriage language in the party platform. As I read through the article, and in particular the comments, it appears the Republican view of gay marriage is about garnering votes while Democrats believe the rhetoric that paints opponents of gay marriage as hate […]

 

Celebrating Mediocrity with the $15 Minimum Wage Hike

DV IMAGE

The year 2014 is shaping up to be the year of the $15 minimum wage. Fast food workers have continued picketing for increased wages, President Obama again asked for a wage hike in his state of the union address, and a major city is poised to implement a city-wide $15 wage ordinance. While I appreciate […]

 

Checks and Balances: The Beauty of the Constitution

WeThePeople-2

     Ideological polarization in the nation is at an all-time high.  So much so, it is palpable.  Anticipating the human nature that we are currently seeing, the prescience of the founding fathers resulted in their brilliant crafting of the Constitution.  Preventing the ideological polarization is the implementation of the checks and balances among the three […]

 

Black “leaders” reject successful black conservatives

LeadersMontage

     As black conservatives, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas are well aware of the racial tolerance double standard adopted by liberal progressives.  Ironically, there are black leaders who promote this hypocrisy and have accepted the liberal progressive intolerance of black conservatives.  North Carolina NAACP President Reverend William Barber II referred […]

 

Propagandalism: Liberal Journalism in the Age of Obama

ThePropaganda

     The propagandists in the mainstream media have gone over the top covering Governor Christie’s so-called bridgegate while parroting the Obama Administration’s line on Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and the IRS.    While I don’t want to inflate Bill Maher’s ego, we need a “New Rule.”  Stop the propagandalism!  Liberal or conservative media, if your party’s […]

 

The Harvey Weinstein Hypocrisy

DyingToPlay

     Forget about the hypocrisy of the Harvey Weinstein ilk.  It is clear to them that guns kill people just like spoons make people fat, cars make people speed, my pants make my ass look big, and Facebook bullies teens.       Forget that it is clearly acceptable to tote around the Newtown victims’ families for […]

 

The Battle for Religious Freedom Beyond the Year 2013

church

     The past year, 2013, saw the continued attack on religious freedom stretching the entire year, not just around the yuletide season.  Actually, it was a further attack on Christian freedom.  Christianity saw the usual Christmas time bans on school carols and atheist billboards, but also saw a year-long battle in the military.  Legal actions […]
