This “refugee” situation

I am really scratching my head at those who are bad mouthing the prudent actions of many governors to put a moratorium on allowing resettlement of the so-called refugees from Syria in their states. Yes, there are truly those who need our help, and are truly refugees. But you cannot tell me that a […]

Why are we listening to the likes of Donald Trump?

First, let me say that there are many of my friends, who I respect, who think “The Donald” is the cure to our political ills. I know they came to their opinions honestly, and I totally respect that. However, comma…. Why are we listening to a guy who voted for Obama, twice? Why are […]

More BS from the White House about Gun Control

First of all, this is going to be a serious rant. So if you don’t want to read my rant, don’t continue. OK… here goes. There was another school (read: Gun Free Zone) shooting. Quite frankly, I am fed up with the ridiculous notion that people have that putting up a sign that bans […]

Syrian “Refugees?”

In the wake of all the furor over the Syrian refugees that are flooding into Europe, I have a few observations.

First, we as Christians have a duty to help those in need, and that is only right and proper. I know that organizations like Samaritan’s Purse are heavily involved in the efforts to […]

Here we go again!

Another shooting… but this time, it doesn’t fit the “narrative”. A gay black man killed two white people, live on TV… later citing the church killings in Charleston, SC, and supposed “racist statements” made by his former colleagues at a Roanoke television station, as his reasons. He said that he was answering the call […]

Trump? Is he the real deal as a conservative?

Right off the top, I’ll admit to being more than a little skeptical of Donald Trump’s bona fides as a conservative. He started his campaign for President with some pretty good “cannon fodder” that sounded good with regard to illegal immigration. Ann Coulter contends that he will do well as long as that is […]

Can’t we all just get along?

There has been a lot of activity on Facebook and other social media sights about the unfortunate killing of a lion named “Cecil” in Zimbabwe. While I don’t personally aspire to trophy hunting, and find a lot of problematic aspects to this particular incident, I find that most of the rhetoric is vitriolic and […]

A nation that has no moral standard

Lately, we are seeing so much animosity, incivility, and downright naked hatred for any ideology that seeks to define standards of conduct, personal responsibility, and, less face it, tolerance… and this from the militant leftists who have made it their goal to erase God from their existence. Anyone who tells the truth about sin […]

My Definition of “Conservative”

I thought it might be helpful for me to define what I mean when I say that I am a Conservative. In the context of American politics, Conservative may be the single most misunderstood and misrepresented word ever known to man!

First, I believe that we are all “endowed by our creator with certain […]

The new push for gun control after Charleston

So, President Obama takes the opportunity, in the wake of the shooting in the church in Charleston, SC, to renew his attempt to disarm law abiding citizens of our once great country.

I’m sorry, but it’s not about “too many guns”. Criminals don’t obey gun laws. Good people who are allowed to exercise their […]

What defines true equality?

As we move closer and closer to the 2016 Presidential election cycle in the US, a lot of politicians like to talk about equality and equity, and how we don’t have income equality or gender equality or… ad nauseum. They seem to make it an issue regarding freedom, while advocating the reduction or outright […]

The whole discussion of “WMD’s”

I am heartily tired of hearing the “armchair quarterbacks” from both sides of the political spectrum trying to distance themselves from the decision, that the majority of them authorized, to invade Iraq in 2003. The whole “Bush lied” meme is both untrue and ridiculous! Recent discoveries have proven all the supposed faulty intelligence reports […]

The whole gay “marriage” discussion

I’ve had more than a few discussions with people of various backgrounds and viewpoints on the whole gay marriage vs traditional marriage debate that has gone on for quite a while. I thought I’d just outline a few of the views that I have, and why.

1. There is a huge difference between the […]

Senator Ted Cruz

So, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced, on Monday, that he will seek the Republican nomination for President of the United States. Now, I can understand the left getting bent out of shape about it, and trying to say he isn’t a “natural born citizen” because he was born in Canada… to a natural born […]

Israel, and the distorted view some have about the conflict with Hamas.

I had a brief, but somewhat disturbing, discussion, a few days ago, about the Israel/Hamas conflict and what this person called “American Christians’ support of an aggressor”, or words to that effect. My answer to the statement was, “and rightly so”… although I don’t even remotely consider Israel to be the aggressor in the […]

A funny comparison

I saw this on a web site had a bit about a conflict between a gov’t union at an AFB and a couple of employees who displayed bumper stickers that said “Duck Dynasty, I Support Phil” on their cars and in their work cubicles.

This was one of the comments below the article, and, […]

Adm. McRaven Urges Graduates to Find Courage to Change the World

The following are the remarks by Naval Adm. William H. McRaven, ninth commander of U.S. Special Operations Command, at the University-wide Commencement at The University of Texas at Austin on May 16:

President Powers, Provost Fenves, Deans, members of the faculty, family and friends and most importantly, the class of 2014.

Congratulations on […]

Thomas Sowell – “Who Shut Down the Government”

Even when it comes to something as basic, and apparently as simple and straightforward, as the question of who shut down the federal government, there are diametrically opposite answers, depending on whether you talk to Democrats or to Republicans.

There is really nothing complicated about the facts. The Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted all […]

Demand A Full Investigation On Benghazi!

On September 11th, 2012, four Americans were killed after an organized group of terrorists attacked the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Two of them, former Navy Seals, heroically held off a large group of the terrorists for several hours, before they were killed.

We must demand a full investigation into the lack of […]

The Post Constitutional America

Some of you may consider this an extreme view, but I believe that we have just witnessed the end of the United States that was envisioned by the drafters of our constitution. And it is, quite frankly, mind-boggling that anyone could look at the last four years of a doubled national debt, end runs on […]
