EMail Doodlings – Political Consistency breeds Political Trust

by The Groksters August 26, 2013

The latter, Trust, unless built upon blind faith (another topic), is only possible if there is a proven history in word and deed of Consistency.  I’ve been writing about this symbiosis and dependence between these two ideas for a while and we had a bit (just a wee bit) of a back and forth on […]

EMail Doodlings – The Nature of Man and Govt

by The Groksters August 26, 2013

We Groksters blog – a lot.  What most of you readers never see is that we have rip roaring discussions behind the curtain as well.  There can be days when we share no emails at all and then some days, a torrent ranging to a tropical downpour.  Sometimes, entertaining as we pull no punches.  We […]

For nothing says “nobody’s free till everybody’s free” when you take away your unborn baby’s freedom

with @PPact at #marchonwashington because nobody's free till everybody's free. #mow50 #action4thedream pic.twitter.com/0d8UdccTnT — janny frimpong (@pronouncedjenny) August 24, 2013 Somehow, I really don’t think that Martin Luther King and the original March on Washington, protesting for better lives, would have blessed a community of death.

Obama: the Anti-President

by Skip August 26, 2013

Hugh Hewitt (talk show host, author, lecturer, lawyer) has a column in the Washington Examiner today: “Is Obama the worst president ever?” Since 1979 and the acquiescence of the transfer of Iran to religious zealots with world-enders and Hidden Imam-summoners among them, I didn’t think it was possible for an American president to be ranked […]

Notable Quote – John Haywood

by Skip August 26, 2013

This commentary on Miley Cyrus’s “performance” on the VMA show caught my eye, with Andrew Brietbart’s words of “politics is downstream of culture” floating in my head (emphasis mine): …Also, Ms. Loring, I would advise you not to underestimate the importance of the pedophile edge to Miley’s routine.  Sexualizing young people is an important mission […]

About that HHS “video contest” for promoting Obamacare?

by Skip August 26, 2013

Yesssir, a contest!  For nothing says “Success!” for a nitwittish, top-down command and control, IRS-fine-giving billy club of a “We’re from the Government and we’re here to help you” HHS “shh…we care” like having to run a contest to get those youn’uns that don’t need it to sign up and pay three times the premiums […]

Thumbnail image for Prager University – ‘How to Praise your Child’

In the newest five-minute course, taught by Joseph Telushkin,  Prager University looks at how parents (and all adults) should praise children.  The conclusion: reserve your highest praise of children for when they behave well…when they treat others with kindness.  Good grades and all are certainly virtuous.  But nothing is as important as good behavior.  This […]

Stop Obamacare Now! Support Dontfundit2013.com

by Don August 26, 2013

Obamacare has hurt enough people!  It is time to end this evil sham of a health care plan.  The (Un)Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was passed by a Democrat Congress that didn’t read it.  Even getting Democrat votes required lies and bribes. Despite hundreds of Obama speeches and millions of taxpayer dollars spent on promotional propaganda, […]

A Collection of Recent Hate-Crime Hoaxes

by Steve MacDonald August 26, 2013

Over at Conservative Intel, they’ve posted a list of hate-crime hoaxes. Having recently written about the Dylan Bleier hoax at Oberlin, I figured I should post this list; seeing as they went to all the trouble. The list has links and of the thirteen they share (Bleier would be number fourteen) all but one was […]

Notable Quote – Patrick Henry

by Skip August 26, 2013

You are not to inquire how your trade may be increased, nor how you are to become a great and powerful people, but how your liberties can be secured; for liberty ought to be the direct end of your government. – Patrick Henry I dryly note that the purpose of our government is not diversity, […]

Notable Quote: Ibn Khaldun on Dar al-Harb (The House of War)

by Steve MacDonald August 26, 2013

To preface the quote… “As a universal religion, Islam envisages a global political order in which all humankind will live under Muslim rule as either believers or subject communities.  In order to achieve this goal it is incumbent on all free, male, adult Muslims to carry out an uncompromising struggle ‘in the path of Allah […]
