President Trump’s Complete Speech To Muslim Leaders In Riyadh

Amazing what results one can achieve in international dealings if one arrives at the door of his potential enemy as a MAN and extends his hand in friendship.  A lesson lost on Barry Soetero, who arrived at the same door groveling, and was treated disdainfully as a boy.  President Trump gathers leaders of 50 majority Muslim nations together, treats them with a blend of firmness and respect, and plants the flag of peace squarely on the doorstep of the major supporters of violent Islamist sectarianism.  Trump’s words, his audacity in causing these leaders to be gathered together to hear his … Continue reading

An Open Letter To America And Her New President

By Dave Merrick —— Bio and Archives December 31, 2016 Years ago in a Wal-Mart, I was walking past the toy department. A screaming four year-old was demanding that his mom buy him the little car set he had opened and scattered all over the floor. After the young mother had several times declined and asked him to come along with her, the boy threw one of the toys at her, leaving a cut on her forehead. The rattled mom stood there and began slowly counting as some parents do before administering discipline. After she got to ‘five’, the kid … Continue reading

Conservative principles – they’re inherent in most Americans

First, a political full disclosure: I am a proud conservative. The following essay is based on my own personal beliefs and obviously, it’s not necessary for everyone to agree on all of the points in order to be considered a conservative, but I believe that most conservatives will agree on most points. Practically all of my family members are also conservative. We weren’t indoctrinated in school, we didn’t study scholarly texts to decide that we were conservative; we didn’t automatically follow a path set out for us by a preacher, some political operative, our parents, or anyone else. We are … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — March 5, 2015

. “If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals — if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories. The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is.” Ronald Reagan,  (February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004)   ~ ~  … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — January 21, 2015

. “Our natural, inalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation from government, and freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment.” Ronald Reagan, (February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004)   ~ ~  Grouchy  ~ ~

Quote Of The Day — November 21, 2014

. “More than a decade ago, a Supreme Court decision literally wiped off the books of fifty states statutes protecting the rights of unborn children. Abortion on demand now takes the lives of up to 1.5 million unborn children a year. Human life legislation ending this tragedy will some day pass the Congress, and you and I must never rest until it does. Unless and until it can be proven that the unborn child is not a living entity, then its right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness must be protected.”   Ronald Reagan, (February 6, 1911 – … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — November 9, 2014

. “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan, (February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004)   ~ ~  Grouchy  ~ ~

From The “AMEN,BROTHER” File For Oct 30 2014

We will NEVER again witness a leader such as Ronald Reagan was. Impossible. The GOPe leadership simply will NOT allow it in these days of pandering to democrats, who will NEVER vote GOPe anyway. I still miss him too. Story from Courtney Coren at Newsmax.com   Michael Reagan: US Longs for Leader Like My Father Wednesday, 29 Oct 2014 03:54 PM By Courtney Coren In memory of the speech that former President Ronald Reagan gave in 1964, Michael Reagan tells Newsmax that the nation needs a leader like that again, one who can “rise above all the chatter” and preach … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — October 28, 2014

. “We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.” Ronald Reagan,  (February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004)   ~ ~ Grouchy ~ ~

Quote Of The Day — October 14, 2014

. “They tell us we must learn to live with less, and teach our children that their lives will be less full and prosperous than ours have been; that the America of the coming years will be a place where — because of our past excesses — it will be impossible to dream and make those dreams come true. I don’t believe that. And, I don’t believe you do either. That is why I am seeking the presidency. I cannot and will not stand by and see this great country destroy itself. Our leaders attempt to blame their failures on … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — September 30, 2014

. “The American dream is not that every man must be level with every other man. The American dream is that every man must be free to become whatever God intends he should become.” Ronald Wilson Reagan (February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004)   ~ ~ Grouchy ~ ~

Infantile Preoccupations in Adults

. Adults in positions of power should be mature and have a sense of propriety and wisdom. Sadly, as the following illustrates, not all do. Western Center for Journalism  and B. Christopher Agee have the story.   Obama Uses This Telling Word More Than Any Other President January 24, 2014 by B. Christopher Agee   It is obvious by listening to almost any speech by Barack Obama that he is obsessed with himself. Frequent mentions of “I” and “me” pepper each address, perpetuating the common belief that he is ruling more as a dictator than as an elected public servant. … Continue reading
