Wikileaks and Other Freaks

As posted on The Blaze.com.

While I agree with Mr. Gingrich in part, I believe that this focus is misplaced.  There will always be an outlet for leaked information.  Whether online or in The Enquirer, leaks will be published and I don’t believe that particular act should be criminalised.  However, consequenses for the source should be swift, public, and final.  We have grown to soft in our modern society.  This weakness in action to defend ourselves has removed the seriousness that these situations require.  It should strike fear to the heart of any individual who entertains the thought of betraying the society in which they live.  Treason is more serious than murder .  Continue reading

Merry Christmas and Deja Vu

As reported on The Blaze.com.

Once again the battle of x-mas vs. Christmas, holiday vs. holy-day, rages in our country.  You think we would get tired of this stupidity, but instead we get sucked into it every year.  Separation of church and state has been trumped as a supreme ideal in this country, yet this concept is nowhere to be found in our Declaration or Constitution.  It is said that our nation was intended to be secular with religion playing no influence in government.  If this really is so, then why can we find innumerable mention of God and Providence in the words, laws, and actions of our founders.  Continue reading

FCC Commissioner Doesn’t Like The US Media

As reported on The Blaze.com

All I can say is “welcome to the club!“  While his reasons why the media is failing both financially, ethically, and in its duty to our republic are sound, his solution is so absurd its laughable.  “Lets put government in charge of it” is the dumbfounding progressive refrain for every problem, and once again the chaotic chorus is being sounded on this issue.  Never mind that the direct cause of all the media’s failings is its attempt at being ”unbiased”.  Gone are the days when media outlets blazoned their stances across the top of their papers.  They have all bought in to this “fair and balanced” crap.  Continue reading

Health Care Reform – The “Purple People” Eater

As discussed on Michelle Malkin’s blog and Rush’s radio show yesterday (12/1/10), SEIU is having some trouble’s with their health care coverage.  It seems that it just isn’t affordable to provide health care coverage to children now that the government mandates you cover them into their 20s.  So SEIU  is dropping the coverage for member’s kiddies altogether.  But Wait!  I thought Obama + Co. told us that this could never happen.  Pelosi and Reid were sure of it too. Continue reading

Dream Act version 4.1

Here we go again.  As reported by Michelle Malkin and Drudge, Democrats, faced with the delightful predicament of new real consequences, have decided it would be great to push more unwanted, highly-contested, and destructive legislation out upon the masses.  Fortunately, it does not appear to have too great a chance at passing, but failure only gives the left a reason to point fingers and blame everything on the evil Republicans who want to eat our children and bludgeon minorities and the poor for sport.

In light of this development, I thought it would be a grand idea to lay out a simplistic vision of what I believe could actually fix our immigration system. Continue reading

Back in Action – For a While Anyway

I don’t think it necessary to apologise for my absence to my one or two readers (if that, lol), but I thought I would explain why this blog has been stagnant for the last few months.  As a college student I have very little free time as it is.  Add to that a new home purchase, a family tragedy, a full-time job, and old cars that need constant repair, I have been unable to reliably follow politics or update this site.  Fortunately, I have recently dumped the full-time job, fixed the cars *knock on wood*, and been given an assignment to “get involved” and do some political writing.   So here I am again, writing for the benefit of my own thought process, or more accurately… my grade, and hoping someday someone might stumble across this mess and be inspired, insulted, or otherwise affected.

Cheers, and Good Day!
