This photo has been trending on my FB newsfeed. It was taken last month by Joyce Gilos Torrefranca, a medical student in Cebu: It shows 9-year-old Daniel Cabrera kneeling on the pavement with the famous golden arches in the background. He’s using a makeshift wooden bench as he writes in his workbook. “For me as… Read more »

Sometimes even a 24/7 news cycle can get so heavily dominated by a handful of stories that everything else seems to disappear. Just as we started to wind down from the tale of a future 1 percenter complaining that a religious-affiliated school should pay for her birth control, we’ve jumped into the Trevon Martin case becoming the focal point of the left’s “Keep Hate Alive” campaign for 2012, along with leftist leadership starting to launch pre-emptive attacks against the Supreme Court for potentially committing that horrific act of judicial activism known as striking down an unconstitutional law. In this hurricane one story sadly got buried in the mix.
Our fate can change the course of our lives in a split second; often, it is beyond our control, but we must be ready to adapt and be resourceful enough to make the best of new circumstances. America is likely to see some dramatic economic changes in the next few months. We must be resolute to endure the possible collapse of the world’s economic systems. I suggest having supplies on hand to last at least a month and plans to unite with family members in case communications fail.
Karl Marx has indigestion; Cuba has just announced the imposition of private property rights and a citizen’s right to sell and buy real estate.
Fidel and Raul Castro have maintained the most classical example of Marxism in the world for over 50 years: consequently, the Cuban people live in abject poverty under totalitarian rule, while their leaders enjoy their wealth, opulence, and outrageous personal economic portfolios so typical of iron fisted thugs ruling over a Socialist dystopia.
Conditions in Africa are intolerable; disease, famine, war, corruption, genocide, and crime have all contributed to make Africa a Hell hole, but now, Africans, particularly Libyans, have devised a scheme to deal with their despair. They have started an exodus of biblical proportions from Africa to Europe.
There are a few problems with the plan, however; Europe’s economies are not healthy enough to absorb a large influx of unskilled and predominately illiterate masses. The Europeans are also not sure they want to allow their cultures to be diluted and possibly absorbed by the cultures of Africa.
This is an interesting situation; historically, Europeans have been pointing their collective fingers at America because of its racial problems and poverty that has racial demographics.
Conservatives and libertarians are constantly railing against government intervention in the lives of citizens. As such, they are often accused by the left of hating all forms of government and seeking to deregulate everything to the point where corporations can take over the country and rob and enslave the citizenry.
Nothing could be farther than the truth. Conservatives understand a successful nation requires a functioning government with a strong rule of law.
I met Oleo along one of my trap line trails. A fellow trapper, Oleo was way off course by about 30 miles from his own trap line. He was among the Laplanders brought over by the government for an experiment in reindeer or caribou ranching. One of the best bushmen I have ever known, it… Read more »
President Bush gestures as he makes remarks at the 2007 Republican Governors Association gala at the National Building Museum in Washington last night. Lawrence Jackson, AP Much of the opposition toward President Bush seem to stem from the scarlet letter “R” next to his name. How else can one explain those who regard him as… Read more »
