The Medium is the Message

Interesting article today popped up on Drudge that linked to The Holly Reporter. The article gave information as to how Hollywood helped Hitler and the Nazis after the Nazis rise to power in 1933 The “little story” is how for business purposes Hollywood caved to Nazi pressure to show Nazism (and Germany) in a favorable […]

Stimulus that Works

Did a little shopping today with my wife and stopped at the sporting goods store. I promised to get some 9mm ammo and a cleaning kit for my Browning FN Hi-Power in my last post but was thwarted when it came to buying the ammo. The store was completely out of 9mm target rounds. Not […]

The Most Pathetic Generation

Last night I had the opportunity to take a long drive with my adult, married with children, hard-working son. We have a mutual interest in history and politics. I said to him that his grandparents were part of the greatest generation and his generation, with notable exceptions, was part of the most pathetic generation. He […]

Give us a King!

It is risky business making comparisons between ancient Israel and the good old USA. As I noted in yesterday’s post the misuse of 2 Chronicles 7:14 is chronic among evangelicals among whom I count myself. But on the other hand making comparisons between people groups such as ancient Israelites and modern Americans isn’t so risky […]

The Folly of Helping Salafists

Mitt Romney gave a speech at historic VMI (Virginia Military Institute) yesterday and a FB friend made the following comments: –Hmmm… As much as I like Romney and his foreign policy mindset as outlined in his VMI speech today, he as much as guaranteed with his comments an American led war in Syria followed by […]

Alexis de Toqueville’s Prophecy

I’m watching the debate. If the talking heads are to be believed then only 7% of voters are undecided. If that is true I find it remarkable that the 7% do not see a clear choice. But then again, I find it remarkable that the polls are as close as they are. I think Alexis […]

Mr.Flexible

I’m trying to be selective with blog postings that are political in nature. I  do for this a number of reasons. 1) While politics interests me, politics do not necessarily interest my all readers. I prefer a more broad appeal over the narrower. 2) Even people who are interested in politics are sick of it […]

Death is no longer abstract

This week the President who killed Osama (oh wait, that was the Navy Seals,) announced the timeline for the US to be out of Afghanistan entirely. I thought the bit about making pals with the Taliban if they agree to make nice revealed an idiotic kumbaya, naiveté on the part of President O. Whatever else one thinks […]

A Near Run Thing

I was thinking of the Gadsden Flag today as the Supreme Court hears arguments about the constitutionality of Obama Care. More specifically, the ability to require citizens to buy anything. Whether or not health care for everyone is a good idea is irrelevant. What is at issue is the power of the government. If the government can compel you to […]

Slave to the Lender

According to World Magazine a junior US Senator in 2006 objected to raising the debt ceiling to 9 trillion. He warned that more debt “weakens us” and shifts “the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.” This same Senator is no longer a Senator but is the President. Today […]
