American Exceptionalism – and the non-recognition of Evil?

David Gregory of the Sunday morning talking head show, Meet The Press, over the most important question concerning our Republic (yes, a Republic – not a democracy): What is the Proper Role of Government? and he turned to Leftist Tavis Smiley for his take on it: Gregory: There is a big argument over government too, …

Notable Quote – Brink Lindsey

American capitalism is derided for its superficial banality, yet it has unleashed profound, convulsive social change. Condemned as mindless materialism, it has burst loose a flood tide of spiritual yearning. The civil rights movement and the sexual revolution, environmentalism and feminism, the fitness and health-care boom and the opening of the gay closet, the withering …

Notable quote – Peter Berkowitz

“…the liberal Democrats’ brand of intransigence disguises itself as devotion to dialogue, conformity to morality, and reliance on reason. But their concept of dialogue is one-sided, the interpretation of morality constricted, and the progressive version of reason suffused with partisan judgments.” H/T Real Clear Politics  

Hang Around and See What Happens

This is a brilliant display of the Liberal mindset.  The only thing missing is that we are all tied to that same tree – with our own personal nooses.

These rumors only became stronger when political writers reported that 2012 Vice-Presidential candidate and Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan is coming to the state on behalf …

“The Union Leader came to the defense of Jim Rubens this week. The NHGOP did not”

That was from this week’s Political Standing.  Pindell’s statement evokes a question: “Are we about to the same thing that happened to Jim Coburn and Joe Kenny during their runs for NH Gov?“ Both were honorable men but got, from my view, little support from the party.  Yes, part of Kenney’s problem was not him …
