   Before he evolved, Dennis Miller once quipped that "the radical right is so homophobic that they're blaming global warming on the AIDS quilt."

Such gap lead to the Communist revolution in Russia in 1917. And such gap lead to the American Revolutionary War, and to the Velvet Revolutions in Eastern Europe. In all these cases, those that bet on the continuation of politics as usual, lost the bets. A good lesson for our politicians and pundits."

"One of the biggest reasons that I know of why women start supplementing with formula in the first couple weeks is because 'baby's not gaining enough weight.'

What is a Constitutional Conservative?

Posted: Monday, August 1st, 2011

"That anyone would even want to return the federal government back to its constitutionally proper limits is what the Left will continue to consider "extreme." That much of what the Right promotes is equally outside constitutional boundaries will always inhibit its ability to be comprehensively conservative in a true constitutionalist sense. Republicans like Bachmann will no doubt be constitutional conservatives on occasion-but by default, not design. And for either Left or Right to concede in any manner that our nation's founding charter simply doesn't matter, is not only a permanent recipe for unlimited government-but negates the entire purpose of even having a Constitution in the first place."

How refreshing it was to see people not caring about some dilapidated Hollywood star, an NBA hoodlum, or some perverse rock star, and instead pay homage to a principled, moral man who publicly takes on the government and its criminal agencies and keeps none of his battles a secret. In between running a massive farm operation and teaching the next generation of food freedomists, he writes and speaks about the criminality of government and its role in usurping the free lives of Americans. Salatin is truly a great and heroic man."

Progressive Media and the War on the Unborn

Posted: Saturday, May 14th, 2011

"What drives a left-wing blogger to mock a little boy with a disability? Is it just hatred for Sarah Palin, a pro-life mother who exposes what is at stake in the battle over the 'right to choose?' Or is it that a mother would bring a child with Down syndrome into the world?"

"Moms, here's an assignment for you. Think about what you want your children to be like in their 20s or 30s. Do you want them to dress like skanks, procreate unthinkingly, have a mouth like a sailor and be unemployable because of their snarky attitude? Or do you want them to dress neatly, wait until marriage to have kids, speak politely and impress prospective employers with their respectful stance and high work ethic?"

SpaceX Plans Largest Rocket Since Moon Program

Posted: Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

"NASA is certainly among the most significant customers for SpaceX, but it is not the only customer. With SpaceX promising to reduce the cost of moving payloads to orbit - and beyond - the company's successful development of vehicle such as the Falcon Heavy offers prospects for an expanded role for private companies in space. The vision of SpaceX president Elon Musk is to break through the price barriers which currently limit access to space to a few governments and multinational corporations."

Tea Party or Republican Party?

Posted: Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

"Right here in my home State of Montana, voters overwhelmingly threw the liberal Democrats out of both State houses and replaced them with Republicans who campaigned on strong conservative rhetoric. But what has happened since? Neocon Republicans in leadership positions squashed the best legislation and bullied compromised, big-government legislation through both chambers."

That's the bigger issue, and I really think it's going to happen in 2012.'"

Five Must-Do Summer Checks for Your Car

Posted: Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

"People know about keeping track of tread depth but sometimes forget to examine their vehicle's tires for signs of physical damage - such as bulges on the sidewall or rips/tears - things that can be caused by hitting a bad pothole or bumping up against a curb. Such damage often happens during the winter months - but isn't noticed because it's just too cold outside to get on your hands and knees and take a close look at each tire."

If you own a gun in Illinois, take precautions. The state attorney general, Lisa Madigan, wants to release the names of guns owners in response to an Associated Press request. Publication of that list would tell the criminal class where the guns are, which could be useful to two different sorts of lawbreakers: gun thieves who want to know where the guns are and burglars who want to know where they are not.

Kristen was even threatened with a knife. Still, Kristen remains bold and outspoken in her defense of conservatism."

GOP to Increase Deficit

Posted: Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

"President Obama agreed with Boehner and Reid, telling the nation in a press conference:       'This is an agreement to invest in our country's future while making the largest annual spending cut in our history. Like any compromise, this required everyone to give ground on issues that were important to them. I certainly did. Some of the cuts we agreed to will be painful - programs people rely on will be cut back; needed infrastructure projects will be delayed. And I would not have made these cuts in better circumstances. But we also prevented this important debate from being overtaken by politics and unrelated disagreements on social issues. And beginning to live within our means is the only way to protect the investments that will help America compete for new jobs - investments in our kids' education and student loans; in clean energy and life-saving medical research.'"

What Wisconsin's Judicial Election Means

Posted: Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

"First, the machine of leftism, even operating in a structurally leftist state like Wisconsin, is David Prossera paper tiger.  Unions long ruled Great Lakes states with an iron hand and a rubber truncheon.  The well-paid army of union operatives, the dull armies of whipped members, and the timidity of possible opponents has meant that unions were able to drive the economy of the industrial heartland of the world's greatest economy into poverty and despair.       This judicial election, however, dispels the notion of omnipotent unions.  Voter turnout in these elections is ordinarily light.  Joanne KloppenburgIncumbent judges seeking reelection do not have huge organizations and vast pots of campaign funds to support them.  In this race, the leftist challenger Kloppenburg had all the advantages.  She should have walked away with this race, but she did not.  Even if Kloppenburg somehow 'discovers' her own trove of uncounted votes, the left will only win the battle and lose the war."

The Misplaced Aims of the Tiger Mother

Posted: Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

"In her book, Chua begins by describing just how radical the Tiger Mother approach really is. With language calculated to reach the nerves of reading mothers, Chua announced that her daughters had never been on a sleepover, acted in a school play, gone on a playdate, watched television, played a video game, or received any grade lower than an A. They had also never been allowed to be anything less than the top student in anything other than gym and drama. And she means every word of this. What she presents is nothing less than a monomaniacal approach to mothering that is intended to produce superior progeny - and that means superior in terms of academic and artistic achievement."

"While 13 percent of our population, blacks are 80 percent of professional basketball players and 65 percent of professional football players and are the highest paid players in both sports. By contrast, blacks are only 2 percent of NHL's professional ice hockey players. There is no racial diversity in basketball, football and ice hockey.

Small Town Rejects Federal Interference, Declares Food Sovereignty

"The town ordinance codifies the way that people have been doing food business for a very long time. The direct relationship creates transparency and accountability and all the things you need to ensure a safe food system, and it's been the way things have operated. The certifications of home kitchens, the trend toward licensing and bureaucracy has really put a damper on small cottage industries and small farm businesses, and I think this is going to have the opposite effect."

Do Walker's Cuts Go Far Enough?

Posted: Thursday, March 31st, 2011

"Governor Walker may exhibit fiscal wisdom, but his extolling of the wonders of government in his address reveals his semi-socialist thinking.  His budget is more like nanny-state 'light' - less deficits, but the same government welfare. The governor intends to give the current Medicaid crisis 'a serious and long-term solution.'  He still believes the government has a role in helping 'our most vulnerable' instead of their families and neighbors, and that the government can provide a 'transition from the safety net that these programs provide to gainful employment.'"

"If only people like Wallis would actually read the Word Jim Walliswithout inserting their own human biases and prejudices into its interpretation, they would quickly grasp that the Bible is an economics text much at odds with their socialist, humanist worldview.  It's a book that extols private property. It's a book that warns about the nature of government to steal from the people. It's a book that tells people to put their faith in God, not government. It's a book that teaches self-reliance and individual stewardship, not collectivism."

The Stupidity of "Buy American"

  "Buy American" is a dumb idea. It would not only not create prosperity, it would cost jobs and make us all poorer. David R. Henderson, an economist at the Hoover Institution, explained why. "Almost all economists say it's nonsense," he said. "And the reason is: We should buy things where they're cheapest. That frees up more of our resources to buy other things, and other Americans get jobs producing those things."

Are Living Standards Improving?

Posted: Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

 "At first glance, it looks like things have gotten more expensive over the years. But that would fail to take into account three things: inflation of the currency by the Federal Reserve (which went off the international gold standard in 1971, leaving Fed officials free to inflate the currency to their heart's content since then), the resulting steady increase in average or nominal wages, and the remarkable resilience of what's left of the free market in providing goods for customers. Expecting the BLS website to provide accurate data is very presumptuous as so many other factors are impacted by their "data," or as one wag said: 'the BLS provides government numbers for government purposes only. Any relation to reality is strictly accidental.'"

A Living Wooly Mammoth?

Posted: Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

"When we think of Mammoths, we generally associate them with the Ice Age, living in a world fairly different than our own. This is partially true, but certainly not to the extent that evolutionists would have us believe. According to evolutionary beliefs, there have been over 30 ice ages, some of them dating back as far as billions of years ago. They purport that the mammoths became extinct during the last ice age, which they say ended about 10,000 years ago. We'll have to wait until a future article to discuss more detail about the Ice Age, but this at least gives you the context within which evolutionists are working."

"So many U.S. missiles and bombs have struck Libya that the Arab League is bailing out. League chief Amr Moussa has called an emergency meeting of the 22 Arab states to discuss attacks that have "led to the deaths and injuries of many Libyan civilians." We asked for a no-fly zone, said Moussa, not the 'bombardment of civilians.' What caused Obama's about-face from the Pentagon position that imposing a no-fly zone on Libya was an unwise act of war?"

Abortion or Aborticide: Is there a Difference? Is the Unborn Child Really a Fetus?

Posted: Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

"An aborticide was the "intentional act of destroying an unborn baby in the womb." This is different than an abortion as we know it. An abortion was the expulsion of a dead child within the womb. So we might say the child 'aborted.' This is something many mothers have experienced. It is better known as a miscarriage."
