An Obama, Not a King

January 20, 2014

Today marks America’s observance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday as a way to acknowledge and celebrate the life of the 20th Century’s most important civil rights leader.  While it may be unfair to compare today’s civil rights leaders to King and his contemporaries (given that era, his message, their tactics, etc.), a figure as [...]

Bad Week for the Obama Nation

April 1, 2012

I figured that on April Fools Day I’d post on the terrible few days our very foolish fine President has had to endure.  The Washington Times really hit the nail on the head that over the last 10 days: Obama waded into the Trayvon Martin issue, race-pandering (skip to 1:34) and aggravating an already tense [...]
