Greatest Hits: The Utility of Free Speech

The Utility of Free Speech:  While the left only allows speech that completely agrees with their own opinions, actual free speech has great value… As we all know, freedom of speech is under attack.  Mark Lloyd proposes to replace privately owned media with a government approved and moderated PBS.  Cass Sustein and Henry Waxman have both floated the idea of regulating Internet content.  Speech codes on campus restrict the free flows of ideas on college campuses.  The ACLU threatens to sue kids that pray at graduation ceremonies.  People are threatened if they pray in public.  Conversely, the left is able […]

The Left’s Absurd Political “Debate” Clichés All at Once

This is absolutely priceless.   .

Dinner With Obama

“If the government ever publishes a book to show bureaucrats how to serve the public, it will be a cookbook.” — Gary North __________ “I smelled something cooking and I looked to see; That’s when I found out they was-a cooking me!” — The Cadets (Stranded In The Jungle, 1956) *** When you’re in the stew pot and they’re adding the salt, it’s a little late to realize why it’s never wise to accept a dinner invitation from cannibals: Stop Giving Obama Radicals the Benefit of the Doubt (Front Page Magazine) […] like so much about the age of Obama, […]

Common Core: Right Wing Groups to be Described as ‘Fascist’

I haven’t covered it as much as I should, but Common Core is the latest indoctrination program for use in the public schools.  And, since it’s a leftist creation, it’s full of lies, indoctrination, and blind obedience.  And, since the socialist state can tolerate no dissent, all opposition has to be smeared and discredited.   In that vein, it appears that Common Core dictates that all “right wing group” be portrayed as fascists, even though fascism and Conservatism are at opposite ends of the political spectrum.  The Federalist Papers has more… Via The Daily Caller: Hillsdale professor Terrence Moore, author of […]

Classic Conservative Hideout: This is the Tolerance of the Left: Intimidation, Harassment, and Threats (Brett Kimberlin and #FreeKate Edition)

I republish this post, with some edits, every year.  I think it’s wise to review leftist tactics, as well as honor those that have endured much in the cause of human freedom.  There are people our own country that put their safety and livelihoods on the line to promote the teachings of Jesus Christ, as well as the concepts of freedom laid out by our own Founding Fathers. Given that people are placed in physical and legal jeopardy by convicted bombers, or by those that want to legalize sex between adults and minors, it’s wise to expose and discuss the […]

Christians Need Not Apply: Military Ramps up Persecution Against Christians

In this age of increased persecution against Christians, think it should come as no surprise that more and more cases of people being fired or punished for their beliefs should come to light.  Earlier this year, it became “illegal” for  Christian to share one’s faith in the military.  Now, it seems that even being a Christian is a crime.  Take a look at the following below.   Technical Sgt. Layne Wilson, a 27 year veteran of the Utah Air National Guard, was reprimanded for his opposition to a homosexual wedding in the West Point chapel. In fact, he was told […]

Tamerlan Tsarnaev- 9/11 Denier, Against War on Terror, Ignorant- Product of the Intellectual Left?

From the Detroit News article For Boston bombing suspects, question may be who led whom: …(Alyssa Kilzer) said the mother (of the terrorists) also expressed some rather strident views about the U.S. government. “(When my mother went to their house to get a facial treatment) (the mother of the terrorists) started quoting a conspiracy theory, telling me that she thought 9-11 was purposefully created by the American government to make America hate Muslims. ‘It’s real,’ (the mother of the terrorists) said, ‘My son knows all about it. You can read on the internet.’”… …Tsarni (who is the uncle) told The […]

Boston Marathon Bombing Update: At Least Three Dead, Over 100 Wounded, Leftist Media Blames Right

Here are better videos of the Boston Marathon bombing itself… Fox has additional coverage… The deadly bombing at the Boston Marathon that killed at least three and injured more than 130 is believed to be an act of terrorism, senior White House officials told Fox News. Two explosions tore through the finish line of the world-famous race just before 3 p.m., going off simultaneously as throngs of onlookers watched runners complete the 26.2-mile trek. The timing of the blasts immediately sparked suspicions of a deliberate act. “When multiple devices go off, that’s an act of terrorism,” a senior administration official […]

Margaret Thatcher, The Iron Lady, Dead at Age 87

Margaret Thatcher, the so called “Iron Lady,” had passed away at age 87.  The UK’s first female prime minister, she was in power at a pivotal time in the UK’s history, restoring the economy and international prestige of her nation.  She was seen as a partner with Ronald Reagan in confronting Soviet Communism, winning her the title, “Iron Lady,” from the Soviet Press.  The Daley Gator has more… Margaret Thatcher Dies After Stroke – Sky News Britain’s first and only female prime minister Baroness Thatcher has died at the age of 87 after suffering a stroke. Lady Thatcher’s children Mark […]

Great Moments in Civil Discourse Retroactive: Liberals Cheered When Ronald Reagan was Shot

It’s been a while since we’ve done a Great Moments in Civil Discourse post, and this one is vintage.  It seems that 32 years ago, when Ronald Reagan was nearly killed by an assassin’s bullet, liberals burst into cheers. Tom Blumer at Newsbusters has more… Two years ago today, I chronicled wire service reports which appeared shortly after John Hinckley’s unsuccessful attempt to assassinate President Ronald Reagan on March 30, 1981 reporting that schoolchildren in many parts of the country cheered when they heard that he had been shot. At the time, I suggested that school teachers and administrators who […]

Reflections on the Violence of the Left

We’ve been saying for years that the left is all about violence.  From violent Communist revolutions, and their genocidal aftermath, to the Nazis, to the Weather Underground, to  Occupy Wall Street, leftists have paved a path of blood to their desired power.  And, when they do achieve power, there is even more blood letting to keep it.  For a more recent example, take a look at this, from Glenn Beck, via New Zeal… Your browser does not support iframes. All I can say is expect more. Then again, it is predicted.

Tell Hollywood to Shove it, Their Hypocrisy is Enough

It seems that Hollywood is part of the regressive rush to disarm the populace.  But, they have some substantial hypocrisy to overcome.  This video shows it all. What more can be said.  It’s USDA Grade A Hypocrisy!

Liberal Hypocrisy Alert: MIchael Moore’s Body Guard Arrested on Gun Violation

Imagine that you are the rotund and overwhelmingly self important leftist, like Michael Moore Jabba the Lib.  Naturally, you are going to be against the Second Amendment, because no one should be able to use guns to protect themselves against the state, or criminals, or even union goons (or do I repeat myself?).  They should die for the narrative, like good little drones, and forget about all the statistics and examples of how guns reduce crime and save lives. But, there is a separate set of rules for self important liberals.  You see, those blabbering masses of flesh that would […]

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Liberals call for Ann Romney’s Death

Just imagine if Conservatives all over Twitter called for Michelle Obama’s death.  Might that cause a bit of an uproar, or even some coverage by the MSM?  I think we all know that such an event would be cause for the MSM to revisit the Republcan “hate” and racism memes.  However, it doesn’t even seem to be of note when liberals call of the death of Ann Romeny.  The Examiner has more… On Wednesday, liberals on Twitter called for the death of Ann Romney, the wife of GOP nominee Mitt Romney, Twitchy reported. As of this writing, the so-called “mainstream media” has refused to report […]

In Search of Messages The Left Might Understand

As I make my daily rounds of the internet, reading news stories but mostly conservative and libertarian blogs, I try to keep an eye out for conservative messages that might have a chance of registering with those of the leftest mind-set. It’s not easy to get through to a leftest. When confronted with facts and information that is contrary to their view of the world, they automatically tune you out and begin thinking of nasty slurs they can through at you. There are rare exceptions when a leftest coverts to conservatism on their own. This usually happens when they begin […]

Does the US Hold the Largest Oil Reserves on the Planet?

Quite possibly, if we listen to the following official from the GAO… So then, if we are floating on oil, and the only barrier to this windfall is government, who is the problem? I think we all know the answer to that. John Hinderaker, from Powerline, adds some more… …Green River Formation alone–it is located at the intersection of the states of Colorado, Utah and Wyoming, and mostly underlies federal lands–contains as much oil as the entire proven reserves of the rest of the world combined. America is uniquely blessed in its energy resources. Two questions remain: 1) will Obama finally abandon […]

Facts About Communism Some Teachers Ignore: Stalin Murdered 40 Million and Mao Murdered 80 Million

Still in Lansing working on education issues this week, and I found myself getting into it with several other teachers on May Day (May 1) over the issue of ‘how bad was communism really’. In education, there are a lot of facets to this discussion, as many teachers believe that workers are supreme, that everybody should be unionized, that the workers should control the government, that there never were any communists in America, that businesses are wrong, that capitalism has failed, and that communist nations like China are the wave of the future. In reply, I point out that communist […]

Muslim Brotherhood Taking Over Egypt? Who Might Have Thought of That?

Remember the Arab Spring, or as I like to call it, The Tyrant Exchange Program?  I seem to recall quite a few guys on our side trying to tell the world that extremists, like the Muslim Brotherhood, would take over Egypt.  I also seem to recall saying that the leftist end of the Arab Spring were only useful idiots for the radicals, and that said radicals would eat the lefties for lunch and take over.  My sense was, and still is that while leftists can be violent, radical Islamists are far more barbaric.   The lefties were fighting for their […]
