Why Culture Matters: The Natural State of Man is One of Poverty, Scarcity and Conflict

By 13 Comments 1,163 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 »


Could Obamacare be the Coup de grâce for Battered Liberal Syndrome?

By 10 Comments 1,323 views

Years ago I was talking to an uncle who happens to be a martial arts expert. He told me a story about being in a bar when a man started beating the heck out of his girlfriend. My uncle being my uncle, he intervened and separated the two. As he’s standing there confronting the abuser,… Read more »


Why the shutdown scares the petty vindictive little man Barack Obama

By 22 Comments 1,645 views

Despite the fact that the average federal employee earns $123,000 (2010 numbers) in salary and benefits while the average private sector employee earns $61,000, my sympathy goes out to those who have found themselves on the sidelines because of Barack Obama and Harry Reid’s shutdown. Despite the fact that they will likely get all of… Read more »


Prosperity’s Bible & Einstein’s Definition of Insanity

By 4 Comments 608 views

Albert Einstein defined Insanity thus: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. One has to wonder what Einstein would think of the left’s continued desire to inflict centralized planning on the citizens of the United States. Central planning has been a failure virtually every time it’s ever been implemented, whether… Read more »


Regulation vs. Prosperity… America goes gently into that good night

By 21 Comments 512 views

Thanks to the Founding Fathers, in 2013 the United States has built the wealthiest nation in history on free markets and the rule of law. (And thanks to their more recent successors, we’re simultaneously the poorest… but that’s another discussion.) While the Founding Fathers were remarkable for much, what is perhaps their greatest legacy is… Read more »


Barackalypse Now: The story of one man’s destruction of the American Dream

By 9 Comments 702 views

By now you have figured out that Armageddon did not occur on Friday and the dire warnings from the White House that the nation would essentially collapse were, shall we say, somewhat overstated. That doesn’t mean however that the nation and American prosperity is in any less danger. Barackalypse Now is indeed upon us, and… Read more »


How Conservatives can win in a world of “Low Information Voters”

By 90 Comments 1,967 views

How did Barack Obama win reelection despite 8 million fewer people working and a doubling of gas prices since he took office? Despite a flatlining GDP, $6 trillion in new debt, and the disastrous Benghazi? How is it possible that given his abject failure voters could give Barack Obama a second term? Easy… Republicans hate… Read more »


Why I’m a Conservative

By 15 Comments 1,800 views

Republicans in general, and conservatives in particular, are constantly demonized in the media as greedy, ruthless, heartless, racist sons of bitches who want children to starve, grandma to die and women to be kept barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen where they belong. That makes for great copy, but it’s about as far from the… Read more »


Mitt Romney as Alexander the Great! He'll have to do more than just play Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama's Jimmy Carter…[Reader Post]

By 5 Comments 439 views

The country is certainly a different place than it was when Andy Griffith was keeping the streets of Mayberry safe from pick pockets or settling disputes between feuding clans. It’s also a different place from the one Ronald Reagan inherited in 1981. While Americans may no longer be tethered to a telephone hanging on the wall or stuck getting their news or entertainment from a newspaper or television, those new freedoms and choices pale in comparison to the freedoms and choices lost in terms of their own economic opportunities.

By 6 Comments 384 views

For months we’ve heard calls from Democrats for Mitt Romney to release his tax records. Last week Harry Reid even claimed he had it from “a number of people” had told him that Mitt Romney had not paid his taxes for a decade and demanded he release them.
