The Changing of the Gods: Religion and Modern Liberals

April 20, 2014


It isn’t widely reported, though religious liberties organizations are well aware, but religious liberties are under attack from a significant portion of the modern liberal political class.  More than that however, religion in general, specifically the Christian religion is being mocked by that same element.  Snickers could almost be audible when some public figure or […]

Head ‘em Up, Move ‘em Out

April 20, 2014


The Cliven Bundy-Bureau of Land Management “range wars” have been all over the news lately—well, all over many news outlets.  Even Harry Reid finally spoke up, and, as he usually does, in an obsequious manner and with such exquisite irony (which he probably didn’t catch).  I now feel compelled to weigh in.  The conservative news […]

For the Umpteenth Time: Income Equality

April 20, 2014


On Good Friday I was watching a “debate” between the conservative Roman Catholic Raymond Arroyo and the Christian Left activist Jim Wallis on the subject of income inequality and the pronouncements of Pope Francis on economics and justice.  The Fox News host Bill O’Reilly began with quotes from one very far left writer, Bill Scheer, […]

Quote for the Day: Hayek on the distinction between Law and Legislation

April 14, 2014


Legislation, the deliberate making of law, has justly been described as among all inventions of man the one fraught with the gravest consequences, more far-reaching in its effects even than fire and gun-powder.  Unlike law itself, which has never been ‘invented’ in the same sense, the invention of legislation came relatively late in the history […]

Sad, sad, sad. When one of the greats becomes blinded by ideology.

April 9, 2014

18 Sorry I can’t get the video to embed directly, but please watch this first. Hank Aaron is a true American hero, for Americans of all races and classes.  As Braves chairman Terry McGuirk said Aaron “set the home-run record the old-fashioned way” and added “You will always be the home run king of all […]
