“Gentry Liberalism” Exposed

July 18, 2011

Here’s an article I read today which exposes what the author calls “gentry liberalism”:  the movement over the last 40 years of the Democrat Party away from the regular guy towards specific corporate interests.  The date bears this out — in a period of Democrat political dominance Wall Street has done very well, while Main [...]

FDR’s Legacy 65 Years Later

April 12, 2010

Two critical things happened in American history today:  the first is that today marks the 149th anniversary of the Confederate attack on Fort Sumter, SC, which began the Civil War in 1861.  Seven states had already seceded and four others were about to go as well, leading to the largest trauma in our nation’s history.

Obama News Conference a Snore

February 10, 2009

I watched the Chosen One try to reassert his manhood in front of already mind-numbed media groupies on TV for 62 minutes last night.  How do I know it was 62 minutes?  He started scolding us at 8pm and I stopped squeezing the stress ball at 9:02pm — two minutes into the latest episode of 24!  That’s when my [...]

Repeal Day’s 75!

December 6, 2008

75 years ago yesterday, Americans in their infinite wisdom repealed the Eighteenth Amendment ban on alcohol.  Some came to call the anniversary of December 5, 1933, “Repeal Day” so that we could celebrate the joys of being able to celebrate more fully in a free society! The 18th Amendment was the only Constitutional Amendment in [...]

Is America Shifting Left?

September 27, 2008

Michael Barone makes the case in a recent article that this coming election may be an inflection point in American politics, much as the 1930s when there was a shift towards the idea that government could solve problems, and again in the 1980s when there was a shift to the idea that government is the problem.  [...]

I Knew Theodore Roosevelt and Senator, You’re No TR!

July 13, 2008

Well, the first part of that isn’t entirely true, but I did spend fifteen months writing a rather long historiographical thesis on Theodore Roosevelt back in college.  In that work I used some of John McCain’s campaign rhetoric from early 2000 as evidence of TR’s increasing influence amongst politicians of both parties today (I also quoted [...]

Newt Says (and I agree): Sign the Petition!

May 29, 2008

Here’s Newt making tons of sense once again: So, SIGN THIS PETITION from Newt’s American Solutions project to get your voice heard on having a sound, pro-growth energy policy for our nation during these hard times.  The Warner-Lieberman Bill is a horrible, anti-growth, anti-business bill that is gaining momentum in the Senate not because it is sound [...]
