Immigrants, Slaves, Redistribution and a Cult of Personality: Barack Obama and the Last Days of the Roman Republic

By 8 Comments 1,301 views

Late last year I started listening to the History of Rome app. While functionally terrible, content wise it’s quite good. Having been many years since I read Roman history, it’s a welcome refresher for those things I’ve forgotten and an education for many more I never learned in the first place. It’s an extraordinary history,… Read more »

Gratitude at Christmastime… For our Freedom of Speech

By 1 Comment 672 views

Christmas is, among other things, a time for gratitude. Gratitude of course comes in many shapes and sizes. Some people feel gratitude for family, others for health, others for prosperity and some for all of those things and more and no doubt some for much less. Whatever one’s situation here in the United States, we,… Read more »

By 13 Comments 1,411 views

One of my favorite teachers in high school was Mr. Kelly. Ostensibly he was a reading teacher, but his interests were far more inclined towards history and cultures. We once got into a discussion about the great cultures throughout history. The obvious names came up… the Greeks, the Egyptians, the Romans, Aztecs, ancient China etc…. Read more »

Pies, Free Markets and the American Experiment

By 1 Comment 1,439 views

I’ve often used the phrase “when I’m rich” followed by, “I’m going to do X and Y and Z”. Anyone hearing me say that could certainly be forgiven for thinking my primary motivation is to grow my bank account just for the sake of filling it up. In reality however nothing could be farther from… Read more »

The eight year reign of Barack Obama will go down as the most important in American history since Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln led the United States at the single most important decision point in its history.

What makes a tyrant? Dictionary.com defines tyrant thus: A sovereign or other ruler who uses power oppressively or unjustly. In 1776 the 13 American colonies declared independence from just such a tyrant.

Barack Obama’s Amnesty won’t be legal, but it will likely be permanent…

By 11 Comments 811 views

Sometime over the course of the next week Barack Obama is likely going grant amnesty to millions of people who are in the United States illegally. He’s doing this very much against the will of an overwhelming majority of American people. Not only do polls show that Americans are 3 to 1 against his giving… Read more »

Obamacare, WW II and how hubris undermines citizen confidence in government

By 12 Comments 611 views

I recently heard a broadcast minute from Neal Boortz. He said the following: During the 3 1/2 years of U.S. involvement (in WW II), here’s what we manufactured: 8 battleships, 22 aircraft carriers, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 4 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighters, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft,… Read more »

Illegitimacy: America’s racist past and present dooms its present and future…

By 12 Comments 975 views

I recently got into a lengthy discussion with some friends that makes me wonder how much longer the country can survive. Why? Because of such starkly different views on the nation, our history and the role of government. Frankly, I’ve never felt so bewildered in my life as to how people looking at the same… Read more »

King Barack, the Declaration of Independence and a Textbook Definition of Tyranny

By 15 Comments 1,046 views

The two great founding documents in American history are the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. Today, more than two centuries after each was written, people often conflate the two. How often have you heard someone say “It’s my right… it’s right there in the Constitution… Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Of… Read more »
