Elementary Students Being Taught Government is ‘Family’

From TheBlaze: Fourth-grade students in Illinois are learning that “government is like a nation’s family” because it sets rules and takes care of needs such as health care and education. So says a worksheet for social studies homework that was distributed to students at East Prairie School in Skokie, Ill, complete with a drawing of Uncle Same cradling a baby that represents the citizens. Students are then prompted to answer 10 questions comparing government and families, including how their family provides for their health care needs and how the government does the same, and what rules families set and what … Continue reading

The Next Time You Hear THIS…….

…..” We have MORE full-time workers than 2007″, hit them over the head with THIS. From Investors Business Daily.com By Jed  Graham   ObamaCare Cuts Low-Wage Workweek Near Record Low Here’s something worth paying attention to this Labor Day: The workweek in low-wage industries has fallen back to the historic lows seen at the depths of  the recession. The White House and like-minded economists have disputed the notion that  ObamaCare is having a meaningful impact on work hours by noting that the  private-sector workweek has recovered pretty much back to where it was in 2007,  before the economy tanked. But that view … Continue reading

The Democrats Did WHAT????

In a HUGE leap of idiocy, or a willful rewrite of history attempt, the morons at The Los Angeles Times barfed THIS up. Be amused my friends. From Breitbart.com. LA Times Claims ‘Democrats Led Passage’ of 1964 Civil Rights Act         Stupidity, we see where it emanates from. HERE. And the leftist morons contained therein.             by  Wynton Hall    30 Aug 2013 In a stunning historical error, Los Angeles Times reporters Kathleen Hennessey, Richard Simon, Alexei Koseff reported that “Democrats led the passage of civil rights legislation that marchers pushed for in 1963.” In fact, Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV), a … Continue reading

Another From The “GEE, NO SHIT” File

In an unbelievable admission, an MIT professor says something we’ve known for a LONG time. Welcome to the party. From The Daily Caller.com. by Michael Bastasch MIT professor:  Global warming is a ‘religion’   What the Gorons believe. What the REALITY is. Throughout history, governments have twisted science to suit a political  agenda. Global warming is no different, according to Dr. Richard Lindzen of the  Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “Global climate alarmism has been costly to society, and it has the potential  to be vastly more costly. It has also been damaging to science, as scientists  adjust both data and even theory to … Continue reading

Obama Issues New EO’s Against Guns

From the Washington Times: President Obama ordered two more executive actions Thursday to restrict guns, banning the re-importation of military surplus firearms to private entities and proposing a regulation that would close a loophole in background checks. On the day B. Todd Jones is being sworn in as the new director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the White House said the ATF is proposing to conduct background checks on firearms registered to a trust or corporation. The administration said felons and others prohibited from having firearms currently are able to avoid background checks by choosing this route. “ATF reports that last … Continue reading

Sometimes, Senator Lee, Motive Does Matter

Recently I saw the old Hitchcock movie, Lifeboat.  The story centers around a group of Americans whose ship is sunk by a German U-boat, leaving them stranded on a lifeboat.  Soon the U-boat is also sunk, and an evacuated German sailor seeks refuge with the Americans in the lifeboat.  The Americans disagree about whether or not to let him on the boat but ultimately they do.  The plan is to try and guide the lifeboat to Bermuda, but they have no compass and are unsure about the accuracy of their course.  Eventually the German sailor takes charge of the boat and … Continue reading

Meet Your Fate

Welcome liberals and the uninvolved: Think of the United States as an airplane.  Its structure is held together with rivets.  These rivets are made of the ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence.  Their placement is dictated by the U.S. Constitution.  The result is the airplane called the united States, a Constitutional Republic. A unique country amongst all the others. Some rivets have corroded over time.  Individual liberty and freedom have been rusting away almost from the beginning.  Man has a tendency to want power and control over others.  We rejected a monarchy once upon a time and now have … Continue reading

What Price For Power?

(I first posted this essay on Common Sense Matters II on September 4, 2011.  I am re-posting it here and now because in my humble opinion it is a timeless topic that cannot be repeated often enough.  ˜CW) Many years ago I remember reading a horrifying story about a man who set his young son on fire in a vengeful act against his ex-wife.  I was astonished and sickened that someone could be so consumed with their own selfish need for power and control that they would destroy something good and precious to fulfill that need.  The way I see it there … Continue reading

Redistributing Consequences

In an ideal world every able adult would assume responsibility for caring for themselves and for their own families.  This would result in a highly productive, well-cared-for society with very little need for welfare.  We should all want that, right?  Well in order to get to such a place, people must be taught to become responsible adults through exposure to the laws of natural consequences.  You touch the fire, you get burned – that’s how it works.  It’s a very simple, powerful dynamic upon which societies are able to function and flourish, therefore this can only mean one thing – … Continue reading

“No Access” my Ass!

Once upon a time a young boy came home and gave his mother his report card.  The mother opened the card and was disturbed to see that the boy had received bad grades in every subject.  She asked him, “Why did you get such bad grades in everything?” to which he replied, “Because I didn’t have access to the homework assignments.”  The mother told the boy not to worry.  Tomorrow she would call the school principal and demand that the child’s grades be adjusted upward due to his lack of access to the homework assignments.  When the boy’s father came … Continue reading

What I Learned at the Huffington Post

Every once in a great while I’ll visit a leftwing site like the Huffington Post just to remind myself about the kind of mentality we’re up against.  I am especially curious about the Left’s perceptions of current events, and indeed what they believe current events even to be.  After a few minutes reading it is inevitably such a depressing exercise that I turn away in utter disgust, reassured in my long-held belief that we are doomed as a nation. The article linked to below, entitled “How America Became a Third World Country,” was featured as a front-page blog post on Huffpo the … Continue reading

When Giving Became “Giving BACK”

(This is another essay from my previous blog.  I’m re-posting it here because of my staunch belief that we should not fall prey to the Left’s attempts to redefine our language.  Once we accept the language of the Left, the rest is just a matter of time.  ˜ CW) For the past several years now I’ve been unable to peruse a newspaper or magazine without running into the latest human-interest story about somebody “giving back” to their community or, more likely, some self-proclaimed do-gooder calling on everyone else to “give back.”  Too many people don’t seem to realize that the seemingly innocuous … Continue reading

The Church of Oppositism

An industrious person with a strong stomach could make a full-time career out of the task of documenting the litany of peculiar positions staked out by the Left.  Ditto for the litany of lies and double standards that result from their unabashed fondness for dishonesty and hypocrisy.   The point of this post is to try and answer one simple question:  Why? The biggest problem liberals face in America is that conservatism makes them irrelevant.   The Founding Fathers already established a strong and durable form of limited government – check!   The American economy thrived and produced enormous prosperity under our system … Continue reading

What is the Meaning of Hypocrisy?

Every day, it seems, we catch the President of the United States in yet another glaring hypocrisy.  Having spent his limited and undistinguished career as a U.S. senator grand-standing on the senate floor, arrogantly scolding republicans so as to assume the image of the impatient father scolding the errant child, isn’t it interesting that he now spends his presidency pursuing, if not doubling down on, virtually all of the very policies he once denounced with such great superiority and condescension?  Hmmmm.  From Guantanamo Bay to the Patriot Act to the abuse of war powers to increasing the nation’s debt to … Continue reading
