Steyn on the Gov’t Shutdown

October 5, 2013

Mark Steyn’s latest column on the government shutdown expresses some of his observations on shutting down the open-air WWII Memorial, etc.  Here’s one: The World War II Memorial exists thanks to some $200 million in private donations – plus $15 million or so from Washington: In other words, the feds paid for the grass. But [...]

Putin’s Victory Lap Goes Through Iran

September 15, 2013

The ever-funny poignantly honest Mark Steyn wrote a piece for NRO that says everything about the state of American “ineffectualism” which has led us to a point where: A month ago, Assad was a reviled war criminal and Putin his arms dealer. Now, Putin is the honest broker and Obama’s partner for peace, and the [...]

Fiat Enforcement of Obamacare Stirring Some Opposition

July 9, 2013

The Obama Administration’s announcement last week that it will arbitrarily push back certain aspects of Obamacare until after the 2014 Election is actually getting some blow back from the GOP, surprisingly, beyond their seemingly obligatory and now tiresome repeal votes. The GOP is saying that it’s not fair to delay certain aspects of the law’s [...]

Steyn: Collapsing the American Skull

April 28, 2013

Mark Steyn’s NRO article this week is classic, cutting Steyn.  In it he takes on our lack of immigrant assimilation while tying in Dr. “Baby-Killer” Kermit Gosnell’s abortion crimes.  Here are two excerpts: Until the 1960s, it was assumed by all sovereign states that they had the right to choose which non-nationals were admitted within [...]

America ODing on SOMA?

November 30, 2012

Many conservatives, including but not limited to Mark Levin (Youtube vid), Jonah Goldberg, and Mark Steyn, have often made the argument that if tyranny ever came to the United States, it wouldn’t be the kind of tyranny once experienced in Communist eastern Europe or Nazi Germany, but rather a soft tyranny where government dictates would [...]

Mark Steyn on Tuesday’s Election

November 11, 2012

I had been waiting for Mark Steyn’s take on Tuesday’s election.  The author of After America sees America’s problems in their most basic form — our economy is on an unsustainable path and America voted Tuesday to keep trucking down that road.  His point?  We had a chance at a course correction, didn’t take it, [...]

Mayor Menino’s Chick-Fil-A Hypocrisy

July 29, 2012

Mark Steyn pointed out a glaring inconsistency with Boston Mayor Menino’s position on groups supporting gay marriage in his town. Stepping back for a moment, remember that Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy said, “We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit.  We are a family-owned business, a family-led [...]

Mark Steyn: American Twilight?

July 8, 2012

In Mark Steyn’s new piece at NRO, he continues his latest impression of Paul Revere warning we Americans that our current trajectory leads us down the road to Europe (without the soft landing).  Indeed, in Steyn’s latest book After America: Get Ready for Armageddon, he argues a very similar point. In his latest article’s reaction [...]

Mark Steyn’s “Dead Mexicans” Rant

October 8, 2011

With the “Fast and Furious” scandal accelerating by the day, conservative commentator Mark Steyn went on the Hugh Hewitt radio program and called out the MSM for not making a bigger deal about it, considering both Mexicans and American border patrol agents are dead as a result of this program.  Though highlighting MSM hypocrisy or [...]

Multiculturalism’s Failure in Europe

February 13, 2011

Sociologist Neil Howe observed in 1997 that we in America get the feeling sometimes that “millions of self-actualized persons don’t add up to an actualized society,” that the fractious niche-making of multiculturalism may do more to divide us than unite us.  Celebrate diversity — fine.  But at what point does our diversity become a liability?  [...]

Obama’s Been Waiting for Himself

June 13, 2010

In a recent article, the indomitably clever Mark Steyn wrote that he believes that Obama probably looks at the USA as merely an “interesting sociological experiment” amongst the broader international scene.  Steyn also describes the way Obama’s internationalist pose doesn’t seem comfortable to many Americans.  There are plenty of people around the world who are [...]

A New Greek Oracle

February 28, 2010

The ancient Oracle of Delphi used to be a spot where ancient Greeks would go to breathe in various toxic fumes and listen to Pythia tell them about possible futures in cryptic phrases and symbols.  Well, millennia later, the Greeks still have some prophesying to do — this time on the eventual collapse of what [...]

Miss Him Yet?

February 10, 2010

Well, duh, of course we do!  But, this is an actual billboard paid for by a “group of small business owners and individuals who just felt like Washington was against them” up in Wyoming, Minnesota.  Those who paid for the billboard want to remain anonymous, but their sentiment is made plain:  as much as George [...]

Ryan’s Story of 2009

December 30, 2009

When the history books are written about 2009, what will they say?  What will I be teaching my students about this year in ten years or so?  I haven’t got a clue. You can’t anticipate what’s going to be historically important while it’s happening, with the exception of 9/11-type events.  But even then, its impact [...]

Mark Steyn on Obamacare

July 8, 2009

I was listening to a bit of Mark Steyn filling-in for Rush today, when he mentioned an interesting concept on socialized health care:  the nationalization of your body.  Put simply, if you do not belong to yourself anymore (i.e., no longer have control over health decisions of your body), isn’t that a form of slavery? In a [...]

Steyn on the Stimulus Bill

February 7, 2009

Mark Steyn, author of the funny yet eerie, America Alone, subbed for Rush Limbaugh for two days this week while Rush was on vacation.  He’s always entertaining on Rush and I wish he’d sub more often.  However, writing a piece in the OC Register, Steyn gives his take on the faltering view of Obama the [...]

Beck and Steyn

January 19, 2009

I got a tip on this video from Glenn Beck’s old show where he interviews the always entertaining Mark Steyn on where Michelle Obama thinks this country needs to go: From my cold dead hands too, Mark!

Mark Steyn’s Election View: Obama in 2-D

November 1, 2008

I just finished reading Mark Steyn’s controversial book America Alone which deals with how European-style “social” democratic institutions have ruined the economy, military and culture of Europe to the point where two trends are set in motion which may permanently destroy Europe as we know it:  a lack of children being born to support the growing welfare [...]

To McCain-Palin: “I’m Mad!”

October 9, 2008

At a joint town hall appearance today in Wisconsin, John McCain and Sarah Palin got a dose of the folk’s frustration, not just with the economy, but with the Republican ticket not stepping up their attacks on an obviously weak and potentially dangerous set of candidates.  One fellow got up and said the following: “I’m [...]
