A Back-Handed Gen X Compliment

October 28, 2010

Is there any other kind?  As a proud member of Generation X, it was neat to read this in Christopher Orlet’s article on the American Spectator blog today: My generation — Generation X — may not have lived through the Great Depression, defeated communism and fascism, and made America the greatest nation on earth, but [...]

Millennials Yawn While Nation Slips

August 13, 2010

Here’s an article by Nicole Russell writing for the American Spectator that smacks Millennial’s* political apathy around a bit.  An under-30 crowd being more interested in trendy fluff than substantive issues that affect them is hardly news, but I love picking on Millennials, especially since they were all sorts of “hopey changey” in the 2008 [...]

America’s “Ruling Class” Exposed

July 19, 2010

In case you missed Rush’s show today, he basically spent three hours reading and analyzing this article from Angelo Codevilla writing for the American Spectator.  It is a pretty awesome article that tries to explain why the Washington “ruling class” acts the way they do, and why many in the Republican Party suck so much [...]

N’Obama in 2012 is Unrealistic

June 6, 2010

Some believe, including the much-cited article by Peter Ferrara at the American Spectator, that the current political climate surrounding President Obama will ultimately force him to either resign or make him politically unable to run in the 2012 Elections.  Here’s the thought:  Obama’s got the oil spill and the deepening Sestak scandal to deal with, [...]

Tea Parties Vexing the Left’s “Theory of Everything”

May 1, 2010

While it’s kind of a slow news morning, it’s been nonetheless entertaining to see the Right try to paint the massive Gulf Coast oil spill as “Obama’s Katrina” lately.  While fun, it’s probably is not going anywhere given the MSM’s penchant for Obama-worship and their uncanny ability to move on once things don’t comfortably fit [...]

“Atlas” Has an Itch

October 6, 2009

Wealthy people are leaving the tax-hell of New York, while 45% of doctors would consider quitting if Obama Care were enacted.  Scary prospects for New York’s looter class and the nation as a whole, respectfully, when those who produce, create, innovate and do the hard work at the top are abused to the point of [...]

Paul Ryan on Health Care

July 23, 2009

Congressman Paul Ryan wrote this article for the American Spectator today.  It’s awesome and definitely worth a read!  Page one, two, and three.  It’s thoughtful, harkening back to our Founders, history, and American character in context of today’s debate.  We, as a nation, have failed miserably in educating ourselves on the concept of freedom and [...]

Obamacare is Lurking

June 17, 2009

Part of the danger of the Obama Nation (and undoubtedly part of their strategy) is to inundate the public with so much volume of crises and massive government responses that no one (even Obama) could come close to wrapping their brains around what has happened over the last 5-6 months. Obamacare is just the latest incarnation of that insatiable power-hungry beast, [...]

States Voting to Ditch the Electoral College

May 24, 2009

There are efforts underway to ostensibly toss out the Electoral College through a “stealth” method described by Peter Hannaford at the American Spectator.  The National Popular Vote initiative is promoting a pretty ridiculous idea — no matter how your state voted, the state’s Electors would vote for whoever won the national popular vote total, effectively [...]

Top 10 List of Annoying Millennial Habits

March 27, 2009

Quin Hillyer from American Spectatorhas been spot on lately.  Here’s his latest piece ripping on the bad habits of Millennials and late X-ers (or as he calls them, the “under 30” crowd). I teach Millennials and laughed out loud most of the way down the page!  Millennials, as the “Baby Boom Echo” or ”Echo Boomers,” suffer from [...]

Lia Mills on Abortion

March 22, 2009

I taught Roe v. Wade in class this week and was shockingly objective.  It’s really hard when you’re a pro-life Catholic teaching in a public school, being morally opposed to abortion as a form of birth control — I just think it’s sick.  I felt like I needed a bath and confession afterwards.  I NEVER say “fetus”; [...]

Freedom Across the Fruited Plain: A Study

March 17, 2009

Freedom!!!  We love it, we cherish it, we want to spread it!  Well, of course we do, we’re Americans and (at least on this site) conservatives too. However, as Nicole Russell writing for the American Spectator points out, not all states are created equal when it comes to securing people’s freedom.  She cites a George [...]

Don’t Panic: Living the Satire

January 14, 2009

The American Spectator ran an article yesterday which mixed two things I really love, combining contemporary politics and clever 1980s British satirists through poking fun at Obamanomics using the work of the late Douglas Adams! Here are a few lines Joseph Lawler draws from Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: On the Presidency: As the alien Ford Prefect explains to the [...]

The Kennedy “Mistake”

December 21, 2008

I grew up in Rhode Island.  Like New Jersey has New York envy, RI has Massachusetts envy — we just want to matter, so we’ll latch on to certain aspects our more exciting neighbor to bask in some of their glow.  That being said, RI is in love with the Kennedy’s.  John and Jackie were married in [...]

The Coming Liberal Storm

November 6, 2008

We’re in it pretty deep.  Listening to Rush today, he read from an article written by Quin Hillyer for the American Spectator about the trouble we’re in for 2010 and 2012; it’s very enlightening and scary at the same time, and worth repeating as well.  Hillyer argues that since unabashed Libs now control so many levels [...]
