Chosen Lies Gun-Grabbing Charlatans

by Rick Olson February 5, 2016

“A charlatan makes obscure what is clear; a thinker makes clear what is obscure.” — Hugh Kingsmill Charlatans who advocate for Gun Control have inoculated themselves against the truth. The lies persist. The confusion abounds that perpetuates the lie. Anti-gun liberal charlatans willingly buy into the false narratives. They embrace the ignorance like an addict […]

Political Correctness – it really IS about silencing opponents and criticism

by Skip November 11, 2015

And when you manipulate definitions of common words and socially suppress even the speaking of ideas that “cause hurt and pain”, you win the argument because any opposing ideas, philosophies, or arguments can no longer even be expressed.  Doubt me?  Just listen to Bruce Jenner’s own words (emphasis mine, reformatted): BRUCE JENNER: MEDIA CAN’T SAY […]

Blogline of the Day – Side tangent to the Trump / Muslim controversy of last night

by Skip September 18, 2015

“One of President Obama’s most prominent and least attractive qualities is his vanity. It almost disposes of the speculation that Obama is a Muslim. The man can’t be a Muslim; he worships himself.” – Scott Johnson, Powerline (H/T: Instapundit)

And you wonder why the MSM always is finding fault with USA?

by Skip September 17, 2015

This image from Big Government.  I almost don’t have to say a word, do I? Just a little handful standing to show respect.  And make no mistake, it is totally about respect. Or the lack thereof.  I can understand if technical crews are working during it – I’ve had to adjust and calibrate stuff when […]

Notable Quote – Ray Bradbury

by Susan Olsen July 1, 2015

“If you don’t want a man unhappy politically, don’t give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over […]

Notable Quote – George Orwell

by Susan Olsen May 16, 2015

“It was not desirable that the proles should have strong political feelings. All that was required of them was a primitive patriotism which could be appealed to whenever it was necessary to make them accept longer working hours or shorter rations. And even when they became discontented, as they sometimes did, their discontent led nowhere, […]

The practical problem of Christian politics is not that of drawing up schemes for a Christian society, but that of living as innocently as we can with unbelieving fellow-subjects under unbelieving rulers who will never be perfectly wise and good and who will sometimes be very wicked and very foolish.
