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.

I’ve often used the phrase “when I’m rich” followed by, “I’m going to do X and Y and Z”.

The eight year reign of Barack Obama will go down as the most important in American history since Abraham Lincoln.

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.

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 »

By 12 Comments 912 views

I recently got into a lengthy discussion with some friends that makes me wonder how much longer the country can survive. Why?

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 »

In 1803 Chief Justice John Marshall changed the face of American government. He did it in such a subtle way that few people understood the consequences of his act at the time.
