Go Occupy Somewhere Else

Just a few thoughts from watching the protestors on Wall Street and their spawn in other venues.  I am struck by the lack of respect for property they seem to reflect.  Then it dawns on me that they have no respect for private property and that is part of their world view.  They want govenment to … Continue reading Go Occupy Somewhere Else

Debate was a yawner

I thought the debate last night was a bit dull.  These guys just regurgitate the same stuff.  Except, of course, for Newt.  I love the guy and really wish he were electable.  He is by far the sharpest of the group.  I really want to like Perry.  He seems like a decent fellow.  His heart … Continue reading Debate was a yawner

Who Decides?

The first question I ask in any political issue is "Who Decides?"  Our system of federalism was predicated on man's fallen nature, and provided for a number of checks and balances to prevent any one man or group of men from controlling the lives fo the people.  We have divided powers for a reason.  yet while the congress debates … Continue reading Who Decides?

Pull up your pants!

Today I see we are debating the justness of asking a young man to pull his pants up so as to cover his rear and his crotch while riding on a public aircraft.  This is deemed by some to be reactionary and even racist.  This on the heels of the great Weiner controversy wherein we … Continue reading Pull up your pants!
