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

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

Mike Lee is IN!

The Deseret News and KSL TV are calling the Utah Senatorial Race on behalf of Mike Lee.  Mike Lee has claimed victory in a photo posted on his facebook page.  In November common sense and constitutional wisdom will again inhabit Washington D.C.  This time liberty is making a full-on assault on the cancerous progressive movement.  The fix will be tough, but will preserve this country for the following generations.  As a constitutional scholar, Mike Lee will work on our behalf to restore American values to government.  With the help of other conservatives now struggling in congress, and new representatives coming to Washington, I hope Mr. Lee will help usher in a great restoration of our country!

Patriotism = Racism in America

http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local-beat/Students-Wearing-American-Flag-Shirts-Sent-Home-92945969.html

I cannot believe that our country has come to this!  In our plight to be as PC as possible, we have begun labeling patriotism as racist.  While it is obvious that the intent of these students was to push back towards the separatist attitude of Hispanic students, it is neither offensive nor racist to display your pride in one’s country.  Especially while standing within your country’s borders.

John Boehner on Health Care

In response to the treasonous legislation our elected officials have forced upon us  Mr Boehner gave the following message.

Mr Obama, Mrs Pelosi, Mr. Reid, and all your cronies…  There is a reason the people have fought so hard in opposition to your will.  We believe in America as it was founded!  We will not allow you to destroy our nation and bring us to our knees.  Only God can do that!  And with His help we will damn every move you make until we remove you from office.  As Americans we are charged with the protection of Liberty for the world.  You have betrayed this noble charter in an misguided attempt for comfortable mediocrity.  As Ronald Reagan said “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to….we are the last stand on earth”.  God forget that you were our countrymen!

Subject: The Last Day – March 21st, 2010

I sit outside this morning with my dog Archie at my side. It is 9:00 AM, warm, sunny and clear. The birds are singing, calling the sun into the sky with their precious songs. Somewhere a woodpecker is hard at work, hammering away at some hard old oak. As I sit here, on this second day of spring, enjoying the peace and quiet and beauty of this day, I am only troubled. A knot in the pit of my stomach keeps me from really enjoying the morning. Is this it? Is this the day that the United States of America ceases to be the “…land of the free and home of the brave?” Is this the day that we slip quietly, or loudly, beneath the waves of 3rd world, banana republic tyranny?

The Philosophy of Liberty

I found this video on youtube and thought I would share it here.

One posting from the comments on this video that I really enjoyed is as follows:

ghengisconrad >> Capitalism and Communism are not systems, they are theories. One is similar to the theory of natural selection, another is similar to Intelligent design. Tell me, does your preferred theory require a magic man who can know and control everything to produce something wonderful and beautiful? Continue reading
