“To the Republic”

Tuesday, October 1st, 2019

Share on Facebook Political allegiance cuts to the heart of patriotism.  In the Middle Ages, warriors owed their personal allegiance to their Lord.  For warriors, allegiance was earned on the battle field.  For everyone else, the Lord demanded allegiance at the point of a sword.  Monarchs dressed up this crude reality with claims to Divine […]

Poverty is no Mystery

Monday, December 10th, 2018

Share on Facebook High poverty states/countries all try to tax the poor instead of the wealthy. The wealthy come up with a variety of excuses to avoid their responsibly to society. The results have been the same for the last 4000 years of civilization. The only way to create a middle class society is to […]

“You shall not wrong or oppress a resident alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.”

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Share on Facebook Pretty clear isn’t it? “You shall not wrong or oppress a resident alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.” Exodus 22:21 How did this get warped into “Separate their families and throw the children in prison.” Greed and cruelty. Thank Ayn Rand. Thank You Milton Friedman. Thank you Frederick […]

Modern Conservatism: fiscally, morally and socially bankrupt

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

Share on Facebook One more time. If you consider yourself a conservative, fine. You need to know that Donald Trump is the embodiment of Modern Conservatism. He is vulgar. He is anti intellectual. He is a bully. He is fiscally, morally and socially bankrupt. You can see the same conservatism in action if you look […]

Monkey Cage: Makers vs Takers

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Share on Facebook I always need this explanation of government benefits.  Conservatives constantly lie about who gets help.  We, the government of the United States of America, help the least among us.    There simply isn’t a large percentage of people taking advantage of the system. Of the 24.7% of Americans who did not work and […]

Gifts for Christ or Herod?

Thursday, December 21st, 2017

Share on Facebook Christmas time teaches a lot about our priorities. In my house growing up it was all about the kids. Our families would all gather at my grandmother’s house, later my dad’s, to celebrate. The highlight was the kid’s opening presents. Giving to the “least of these” was the reason for the season. […]

Roy Moore’s Conservative Values

Friday, December 15th, 2017

Share on Facebook Tuesday sure was exciting.  Doug Jones won a US Senate seat in the “Red State” of Alabama as a Democrat.  His opponent, Roy Moore, had the backing of President Donald Trump.  Moore also claimed to have the backing of God, but after his loss, I’m not so sure.  What could possibly have […]

The Conservative Deficit Creation Strategy

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Share on Facebook The conservative deficit creation strategy is clearer every day.  Not long ago we heard conservatives scream that deficits were bad.  Now conservatives control the United States House of Representatives, the Senate and Presidency, and they are eagerly creating $1.5 trillion dollars in deficit spending.  Why would they do that? Speaker Paul Ryan […]

We the people must hold elites accountable.

Friday, December 1st, 2017

Share on Facebook Power demands sacrifices.  In aristocratic societies, the elite demand sacrifices from the many.  In democratic societies, the many demand sacrifices from the elite.  The whirlwind created by charges of sexual harassment and assault are a healthy sign that our democracy continues to grow and mature. We the people must hold elites accountable. […]
