About

Blogging by the credo of "Making the world a more offensive place, one blog post at a time", Brother Bob started writing posts around the beginning of the Obama presidency over at Brother Bob's Blog. A born-again Existentialist and self-professed libertarian with conservative tendencies, he has ironically chosen to live in the Washington, DC area - deep behind enemy lines. He has always loved history, and spent eight years volunteering as a tour guide on weekends, giving over 200 tours to roughly 2,500 mostly foreign guests. His tours were highlighted by stories generally not found in the history books or most other tours, such as the importance of the Battle if Antietam, the origins or Arlington Cemetery, and dispelling the myths of FDR's New Deal. Although his favorite subject to blog about is Economics, as seen in his Economics for Politicians series, his posts try to address angles that other conservative writers and the mainstream media (naturally!) miss. "There's no point in putting up a post on a subject that someone smarter than me has already written". He believes in the "Happy Warrior" approach, and tries to inject humor in his posts, sometimes successfully. Two such examples are his posts comparing the modern left to the horrible Star Wars prequels, and analyzing the laments of a DC woman in search of a feminist boyfriend. Brother Bob lives with his very patient wife known as Sister Babe, and their fantastic son. Little Bob. Little Bob is also the reason that being a tour guide came to an end, as spending Saturdays raising a son takes priority over giving lectures to foreign visitors on the folly of Keynesian economics. BB is also grateful for the opportunity to take his place among the outstanding writers at Flopping Aces, appreciates every person who takes the time to read his posts, and especially those who join him in the conversation in the comments.

By 39 Comments 1,688 views

Dr. John at Flopping Aces just wrote a great post on Bruce Springsteen’s refusal to perform in North Carolina over their anti-rape enabler law, and pointed out Springsteen’s hypocrisy and how he lives his life betrays his self proclaimed leftist ideals. It’s a good piece, and where Dr. John sees a problem I see another… Read more »

An Easy Way to Secure Equal Pay for the US Womens’ Soccer Team

By 6 Comments 1,571 views

I generally don’t follow soccer, but one recent story caught my eye. I do read the “Monday Morning Quarterback” NFL weekly report written by SI.com’s Peter King. Like any good sports journalist he’s a Radical Leftist, and at the end of his Monday morning pieces he sometimes inflicts those views on his readers when he… Read more »

By 36 Comments 1,311 views

The pro-rape Democrats are at it again. They’ve gone on the attack again to help enable sexual predators gain access to womens’ restrooms. As Red State’s Brandon Morse reports: After North Carolina passed what some are calling an “anti-LGBT law,” a handful of company heads have come down on the state and its lawmakers. Pepsi-Co… Read more »

Obama’s Legal Apartheid System is Actually a Great Opportunity

By 3 Comments 916 views

A recent post by Flopping Aces’ Dr. John laments what he termed as a legal apartheid system by President Obama. And while Dr. John is correct that this is causing serious problems, I see a major opportunity in the ongoing war against Radical Leftfist idiocy. His piece is worth reading in its entirety, but I’ll recap… Read more »

OK lefties, you’ve had your fun crowing about how Republicans are supposedly cowards/hypocrites for not insisting on having their convention being an open carry zone. PJ Media’s Liz Shield gives the rundown: On Monday, the Secret Service announced there will be no firearms at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. Yesterday, I wrote about… Read more »

What Exactly Was Controversial About Cruz’s Post-Brussels Remarks?

By 19 Comments 1,785 views

The post-Brussels bombing is following a familiar script. Ace excerpts this piece from Douglas Murray at The Spectator: The only thing he misses is that we in the west have become just aces at staging tastefully subdued funerary memorials. We do like our candles and flowers. Well at least we all know the form by… Read more »

The Biggest Lie that the Radical Left Tells About Ted Cruz

By 25 Comments 2,060 views

You might recall from 2013 the government shutdown where Ted Cruz was single handedly about to force the government to default on its debts and destroy our economy. As Bloomberg’s Joshua Green breathlessly exhaled: Here’s a cheerful thought as Congress remains deadlocked over the debt ceiling and the hours tick away toward default: Senator Ted… Read more »

By 10 Comments 1,327 views

Every week it seems that some new story breaks about Crybullies on some college campus having a meltdown over some perceived grievance. Writing for Hoover.org Victor Davis Hanson summarizes the petty nastiness that’s been infecting the college campus landscape: Today’s students, especially on elite campuses, pride themselves for being cultural warriors. They are determined to… Read more »
