From Doug: Saw this truck in Lakeville, MN, in a local area McDonalds and thought this person’s truck showed how a true conservative handles his loss, with dignity and resistance against the Collective Blob! Plus, the truck is not a…

The drafting of a new Constitution relied on good faith by those with the power over the…

The word community has been devalued.  Once upon a time it meant something specifically geographic—not unlike neighborhood—as in, “We live in a really nice little community.” Then in the ’60s community was adopted as a synonym for people.  So instead of saying “black people believe,” you said “the black community believes.”  It…

I am going to keep repeating The Christmas Strategy until someone in Republican circles listens: I say call his bluff. If a deal which tackles deficits from both revenue and spending can be reached this month, great. If not, pass a 90 day extension of current tax rates and whatever else is needed…

I personally will never forget the horrendous 2009 Christmas Eve Senate vote for Obamacare. Around the same time, the “stimulus” legislation that eventually became the American Recovery and Investment Act was being bandied about the halls of Congress with tons of hyper-partisan theater. Now, it seems the House of Representatives will continue the…
