    Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is filibustering the Brennan nomination live on C-Span.  Much more than the fact that he has decided to filibuster is what he saying and why he is filibustering.  I recommend everyone watch what he is saying today, he intends to speak for as long as he can.  Sen Paul did vote […]

  • Coming to a (War) Theater in 2013

    This is how it happens.  No one wants war, especially world wars that engulf the entire planet in the disputes that are usually idiotic.  But it appears that another of these situations is coming to the Pacific Ocean, involving Japan, China and the United States.  Once these three get involved, more are sure to follow.  […]

  • Where did the anti-war Democrats go?

    In 2005, the 2,000th serviceman died in Iraq and the media was there to tell us.  Vigils were setup all across the United States to protest the deaths.  It controversial to discuss the dead coming home, the left was outraged, demanding to film the caskets as they rolled off of the airplanes.  Yes, this past […]

  • Party or Vision?

    President Obama accepted the nomination of his party this evening and in doing so posited the theory that this election, more than any other in a generation, will be about two different paths, not just about two different parties.  It’s a good line to toss out to those who already agree with you, but the […]

  • Possible Liberty Comeback

    It’s been decades since some good news from the Supreme Court concerning individual liberty has come our way, up to and including the despicable Kelo v.

  • Missing the Point

    Over a month ago groups of people got together to protest Wall Street. The OWS protestors understand that something is wrong. Unfortunately, in their anger they took their message to the wrong people. And as the government started cracking down on their protests, they still seemed to miss the point of where their grievances should […]

  • The Force Behind the Law

    There has been discussion lately about what the government should be doing, can do and is constitutionally allowed to do.
