Finding Hope in the Pit of Despair

by Peter Lemiska December 22, 2017

Christians and peace-loving people around the world are struggling today – struggling to find hope in a world filled with violence and hatred. They see men, women, and children indiscriminately killed by despots and zealots who care nothing about peace. They see soldiers dying in conflicts around the world. At home, we see random killings […]

Heh! That’s some colorful display there….

by Skip December 18, 2017

Hmm, without all of the gaudiness, the colored lights, tinsel, massive crowds, it does kind of make you think a bit more of the real reason for the season, doesn’t it? A more simple life allows one to contemplate on the more serious things in life. (H/T: Powerline)

What Book(s) Would You Give?

by Ellen Kolb December 17, 2017

The recent Granite State Taxpayers party ended with a Yankee swap of the best kind: books, preferably from one’s own bookshelf, on politics or economics. We had an interesting mix by the time all the packages were claimed. Every holiday gathering should end with books for all, as far as I’m concerned. So, readers, I’m […]

A Christmas wish for all of us of the pale persuasion

by Skip December 25, 2016

“The Caucasians among the tender young minds exposed to Professor George Ciccariello-Maher at Drexel University are on notice that their teacher wants them exterminated because of their race. Not exactly a welcoming atmosphere. I wonder if any of them might be “triggered” by this tweet the good professor offered in the spirit of the holiday?” […]

A very Marine General James Mattis Christmas

by Skip December 25, 2016

Retired Marine General James “Mad Dog” Mattis (and nominee as Trump’s DoD Secretary) is beloved by his former Marines – this is one anecdote why: A couple of months ago, when I told General Krulak, the former Commandant of the Marine Corps, now the chair of the Naval Academy Board of Visitors, that we were […]

Christmas Palate Cleanser: the making of a glass Christmas ornament

by Skip December 24, 2016

“Season’s Greetings from The Corning Museum of Glass! Watch as Museum Gaffer Eric Goldschmidt creates a blown, mirrored and glittered ornament using an authentic Lauscha ornament mold. For many years, it was holiday tradition to decorate one’s home with fruits and nuts. But when a glassblower in the small German mountain town of Lauscha could […]

Let us not forget what Christmas really means: For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

by Skip December 24, 2015

From Luke Chapter 2 7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. 8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 […]

WSJ and the well written editorial…

by JR Hoell December 25, 2014

When Saul of Tarsus set out on his journey to Damascus the whole of the known world lay in bondage. There was one state, and it was Rome. There was one master for it all, and he was Tiberius Caesar. Everywhere there was civil order, for the arm of the Roman law was long. Everywhere […]

Nothing says ‘Merry Christmas’ like a murderous Communist in a Santa hat

by Kimberly Morin December 14, 2014

A company called makefield media is selling Christmas cards with Communist Che Guevara on it that say ‘Vive La Christmas!’  Nothing quite says ‘Merry Christmas’ like sending a Christmas card to people that has the image of  Dictator Fidel Castro’s chief Executioner does it?  Maybe it’s the Santa hat that makes it merry.  All this for […]

NOW it is Christmas time: Home Free – “Angels We Have Heard On High”

by Skip December 7, 2014

I love a capella music so one of my favorite TV shows (yes, a “network” show) is The Sing-Off where a number of a capella groups (a mix of high school, street corner, college, semi-pro, pro) compete for the top prize.  One of my favorites was Home Free (as well as Pentatonic whose songs I […]

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ”

by Skip December 24, 2013

Luke 2:4 – 2 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) 5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. 6 And so […]

Merry Hanukwanzmas

Happy Christmakwanzukkah?  How about Yule or Saturnalia?  Whatever your winter solstice holiday poison may be you can bet your Establishment Clause and his eight tiny ACLU reindeer that the real winners will be the secular humanists and the flying monkey Lawyer-politicians that pull their empty sleigh; craven acolytes of the void, committed to pressuring anyone […]

The True Meaning Of Christmas

by Steve MacDonald December 23, 2010

Starting in 2011, public sector workers will no longer get days off related to any religious holiday, nor will they receive any compensation for these days unless they actually work. If as the liberals and secularists suggest, that we can’t have any God in government, then no one in government should get a paid day off as a result.

Just Throwing This Out There…

by Steve MacDonald December 10, 2010

The House Democrats have balked at a bi-partisan deal that while not perfect, is an actual compromise, and would end a good deal of the uncertainty about tax increases (that is stagnating the economy) by ensuring that for the most part, there are almost none. (The estate tax survives)
