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 […]

 

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 […]

 

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 […]

 

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 […]

 

Lessons from the Affordable Care Act and the Virginia Governor’s Race

Obamacare

     The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is the “law of the land.”  There’s no going back.  The Obama Administration made this point perfectly clear last month with the shutdown battle.  Despite the Virginian Republican gubernatorial candidate’s boost from the disastrous roll out of the ACA, he still lost.  What lessons can conservatives learn?      First, […]

 

Political Correctness is a Killer

ebt_card

     Political correctness is a literary technique used to remove offensive language.  The offense is removed by using happy, positive, and optimistic words and phrases to replace those which have become negatively perceived – “handicapable” versus “handicapped, for instance.  The effect is that it then removes personal responsibility and inhibition from ones actions.  A responsibility […]

 

Is Dora the Explorer a Racist?

dora_explorer

About a week ago my son was watching TV and I happened to glance at the TV.  Dora the Explorer (episode: We’re a Team) was on and I heard Dora ask, “who is the best at vine swinging?”  As she repeated this question three times, you see her monkey friend popping up in the background […]

 

Polarizer-in-Chief: A race-relations failure

BarakObama

Race-relations in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict has seen a strongly polarized response.  Reverends Jackson and Sharpton have weighed in on the verdict, as have other clergypersons.  Politicians big and small have also commented.  Most notably was President Obama. The injection of politicians into such nuanced matters is quite difficult to maintain neutrality.  Invariably, it […]

 

Two cases, two opinions: Caught between gay marriage and the Constitution

CourtHouse

Many say that because the Constitution was written centuries ago, it, or the interpretation of it, has to change to suit the modern-day (the so-called living document doctrine).  The Supreme Court gay marriage ruling is a testament that it does not!  Gay rights activists are celebrating the June 26, 2013 ruling and claiming the fairness […]
