“Depends on our education…”

by Skip April 28, 2014

“Our liberty depends on our education, our laws, and habits . . . it is founded on morals and religion, whose authority reigns in the heart, and on the influence all these produce on public opinion before that opinion governs rulers.”    – Fisher Ames  (do you know who is is?*  After the jump) Every time […]

“Negros With Guns”

by Tim Condon April 22, 2012

Ann Coulter, despite her recent foolishness in attacking Newt Gingrich, is nearly always, ahem, “on target.” As with her recent column, “Negros with Guns,” which starts out like this: Liberals have leapt on the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida to push for the repeal of “stand your ground” laws and to demand tighter […]

South Park Meets the Creature from Jekyll Island

by Mike February 18, 2011

A few years ago, our great local writer, PJ O’Rourke did all of us free market types a big favor by "reading Adam Smith’s ‘The Wealth of Nations’, so you don’t have to". (‘On the Wealth of Nations’, 2006) In a similar vein, Tad Lumpkin, Harold Uhl, the producers of the cartoon "The American Dream" […]

America’s Coming “Great Depression II”

by Tim Condon January 25, 2011

Don’t think it can happen? Think again. Here’s why: "Atop her dynamic and productive people, America’s County, State and Federal governments squat like rogue leviathans excreting tens-of-thousands of new laws and regulations every year. Choked by bureaucracy and debt, The United States of America is in no position to save the world from this crisis this […]

When you celebrate Thanksgiving, think of this…

by Tom November 25, 2010

Probably held in late September or early October, the first Thanksgiving was likely based on the traditional English Harvest Festival, as well as a communal bonding between the English and the Pokonokets, led by Massasoit, since forming a mutually-beneficial alliance in March 1621 – following a very rough year of English suffering, fear, anxiety, and death, […]

A fascinating read: The End of the American “Special Interest State”

by Tim Condon October 15, 2010

This is a really interesting article: "The Coming of the Fourth American Republic," by James DeLong. He argues that America is in the midst of a fourth great "institutional upheaval." The first three such upheavals—which seem to occur roughly on a 70-year cycle—were the American Revolution, the Civil War, and the Great Depression. Each of them gave birth to a […]

Those that do not know history – are going to get screwed…

As Independence Day winds down – let us not forget the unsung verse of the Star Spangled Banner!

by Skip July 4, 2010

As Tim rightfully points out, there are topics that will cause Progressives to turn over and simper; this will not be a poltice on their boils: (H/T: NewsBusters) However, it is clear that the Progressive take over of our Educational system is, well, you tell me: Can’t believe in American Exceptionalism if: can’t spell it […]

Calvin Coolidge, July 4th, 1926

by Steve MacDonald July 4, 2010

“About the Declaration there is a finality that is exceedingly restful. It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning can not be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction can not lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers.”
