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.

Grateful for the Restraint of the… Missouri Nazis?

By 6 Comments 1,081 views

Lost in all of the last week’s stories was one small piece of the University of Missouri story. Apparently someone had painted a swastika on a wall out of… poop. As one would imagine this was added to the list of grievances of creating a racially hostile environment. Since the excrement artist has not taken… Read more »


The Week Where Democrats Permanently Lost One of their Favorite Arguments

By 8 Comments 1,880 views

As anybody knows, every Republican who achieves national recognition gets branded by the Radical Left with at least one of three labels: stupid, old, or evil. After Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris, the Democrats have permanently forfeited one of these labels, given how four of the most prominent figures have reacted to the attacks: First,… Read more »


The Missed Teachable Moment for the Missouri Football Team

By 5 Comments 1,360 views

The football team at the University of Missouri was just cheated of the most practical learning opportunity they could have hoped for in their collegiate careers. Unless you’re living under a rock you’re probably heard about the controversies among various campuses being overrun by mobs of Student Fascists. The biggest story so far comes from the University… Read more »


Obama to Unions: You’re my B****

By 5 Comments 1,085 views

I’m starting to think that a Leftist’s definition of compassion is smashing your neighbor’s knee with a lead pipe, putting a gun to your head to demand that you pay for the neighbor’s medical bills, and then calling you heartless for not sharing the lefty’s compassion in wanting to care for your neighbor. If you… Read more »


Media to the American People: “Silence, Commoners!”

By 22 Comments 1,366 views

Watch any entertaining presidential primary debates lately? That was an impressive bit of pushback by the GOP candidates on the partisan hack who was masquerading as a debate moderator! After an embarrassment like that how does our media react – apologetic and promising to make a more honest effort next time? Ha Ha! Don’t be… Read more »


Carly’s Missed Opportunity

By 11 Comments 1,055 views

Dang it Carly, you blew a grand opportunity. An no, I’m not referring to a middle-of-the-pack performance at the last Republican debate. After a short and impressive few minutes in the spotlight, Carly Fiorina’s campaign seems to be fading quickly. It seems like it was just a month ago that I was praising her for… Read more »


Why do Racist Democrats Oppose Voter ID laws?

By 15 Comments 1,708 views

With a recent decision in Alabama to close 31 DMV offices, the predictable howls of outrage form the Radical Left have come out – “Voter disenfranchisement!’ “Jim Crow!” “Taking away our right to vote!” Expect to hear a lot more of this as we lead up to the 2016 election. PJTV’s Christopher Coates responds to Contributor… Read more »


Of Course, Now the Radical Left Wants to Ruin Halloween

By 9 Comments 1,361 views

You have to wonder if your average leftist’s first thought in the morning is, “What can I do today to make everybody around me as miserable as I am?” OK, that’s a way over the top statement but leftist anger over the most trivial transgressions has reached the point of self-parody, case in point being… Read more »


Why Does the Republican Party Bother to Exist? Part II

By 3 Comments 1,207 views

A few months back I asked the question of the Republican Party – If you can’t make a story as black and white as the killing of Kate Steinle part of the debate over illegal immigration, why do you even bother to exist? Recent events have me asking the same question again: First off, revisiting the… Read more »
