Un-American? Obama’s Ties Of A Different Stripe

by Mike October 22, 2015

Many people, looking at the almost matching outfits of Obama and Biden during yesterday’s non-announcement, saw either too cute, or uncomfortably close coordination of outfits – something just a little, well, creepy. See Twitchy.com As a British import and world traveler, I saw something more interesting – the stripes on the ties went in opposite […]

Will Gaystapo Make an Example of Oregon Judge

What gay activists and their water-carriers get wrong almost every time is that where there is no monopoly on a product or service their attacks on conscientious objectors is not a battle for tolerance it is an exercise in intolerance. Embrace their worldview or be destroyed, personally, professionally, publicly. Bakers, photographers, florists, and now judges. The […]

Are the Republican chickens coming home to roost?

by Skip July 1, 2015

From Erick Erickson at Redstate – he points out what a lot of us are thinking, that the fundamental transformation has taken root and a big part of it is the turning upside down and inside out of both our public policy (which WILL be enforced as YOUR new private morals (and what you have now be […]

Silence Is Assimilation

by Steve MacDonald April 5, 2015
Thumbnail image for Silence Is  Assimilation

I’ve made the point a time-or-two that the same sex marriage debate was never about marriage unless by marriage you mean it’s destruction as an institution.  Marriage is a leading cause of children and children are a leading cause of families, personal responsibility, and even a tendency toward more conservative principles.  That is why the […]

‘Let’s Destroy Liberal Academia’

by Steve MacDonald March 5, 2015
Thumbnail image for ‘Let’s Destroy Liberal Academia’

If you had not figured it out yet, the Government takeover of Student loans was both a sop and to control and protect the redistribution of billions nationally and annually.   To enrich an army of left-wing intellectual moon-bats, legitimize dopey progressive ideas with federal grants, and to recycle taxpayer backed dollars through the white tower […]

When Salvo Magazine first came out a few years ago I subscribed.  For whatever reason I let that lapse for a few years, and have just come back to it.  Here is what they say about themselves as a publication. A publication of The Fellowship of St. James (www.fsj.org), Salvo is dedicated to debunking the […]

Andrew Breitbart: politics is downstream from culture.

by Skip October 27, 2014

Heard this line last night that speaks to this “I’m a Duck Dynasty values family forced to live in a Molly Cyrus World“; what used to be good and valued is denigrated and replaced.  What was good is now bad, what was bad is now celebrated.  Holding onto traditional values used to be a virtue […]

The Democrat party is the party of labels, stereotypes, and prejudice.  It is the party of division.  It feeds off this division to pursue power based on what it promises it can do with that power to get any given division of society whatever they claim or can convince them to think they deserve.  These […]

About Those ‘Social Issues’

Thumbnail image for About Those ‘Social Issues’

A snippet from Selwyn Duke – American Thinker… rebutting the notion that government should stay out of ‘social issues.’ As I predicted years ago and wrote about here, there now is a movement afoot — one that has received “unbiased” mainstream-media news coverage — to legitimize pedophilia. Moreover, it has co-opted the language of the […]

Katy Perry – Trapping Women In A Life Of Poverty?

Katy Perry is ready to be a mom.  Who gives a damn, you say, fair enough.   But I counter with this.  She says (publicly) that she wants to be a mom but “she doesn’t need a dude, it’s the 21st century.” Her point is that if she wants a baby she can have one, […]

Next Up on GrokTALK! we do not have Walt Havenstein.  He was scheduled but he didn’t show up.  I can’t say I blame him.  How does refusing to apologize for calling us tea-baggers help his campaign? But we expected as much, and Kevin was happy to fill in.  We discuss the culture and its effect […]

Chin up, bucko! It may not be as bad as it seems

by Skip April 16, 2014

Andrew Breitbart said that politics is downstream from culture – in other words, the culture changes the mores of the population which changes political leanings.  We on the Right oft bemoan the capture of the educational system, the Hollywood movie / TV industry, the music industry, and the media in general, by the Left.  One […]
