American Inflection Point

One had hoped that winning at the ballot box would be all that was required to save Western Civilization. It increasingly is looking as though that was only the end of the beginning.

230 years of peaceful transition had to end one day. This is why I post supporting secession: These people cannot – will not – refuse to be – be reasoned with. Logic, facts and history can find no purchase.

From this vantage point the street is looking worse than the summer of ’68. And it’s only the beginning of February. We seem to be at the […]

DATELINE 2 JAN 2019 – San Francisco

In California yesterday, following formal secession from the United States on 1 JAN 2019, the following major events were reported:

  1. Gasoline rose to $30.00 per gallon as California terminated all drilling in the State due to environmental concerns. Major oil companies closed their refineries in the Bay Area and Los Angeles at the order of the State EPA. Major service station chains agreed to provide gasoline to CA drivers at $15.00 per gallon at mega-stations under construction in AZ, OR and NV. Much of the price increase, per the oil companies, is to offset the losses of company refineries and

America, Mexico and Drugs

Having grown up and lived in SoCal nearly all of my 62 years, and having made a few trips to Mexico (camping in Baja, hotelling in Acapulco, day trips to Tijuana & Mexicali), it has always bothered me that the country is so corrupt, backward, illiterate and crime-ridden. There is no excuse for it.

The Mexican illegals with whom the American Middle Class comes into contact are, for the most part, hardworking men & women. The guy standing at the end of the freeway off-ramp selling oranges or cherries or flowers is never a white guy or a black guy […]

Voting, Citizenship & Limited Constitutional Govt

Americans need to understand the franchise to make an effective argument about its integrity. The comments in social media and elsewhere indicate that we don’t.

The Constitution does not require voters to be citizens; the voter franchise – other than obstacles such as listed in the 14th Amendment – is left to the States in Art 1, Sec 4. Requiring citizenship for enfranchisement in national elections (Congress, president) would require an amendment; this amendment, to be effective, must include VoterID for national elections, and – more than likely – a national voter database, currently anathema to conservatives and libertarians.  (And […]

Protests, Riots & Law

We need to stop being so accepting of and lenient with violent protestors. Charging 217 in DC with felony rioting is a good start – but it’s generations overdue.

Talk, walk, march & speak. Blog & pamphlet. That’s part of our heritage & most will support doing so – or should. Or at least not complain. It’s our right as Americans under the Rule of Law.

But setting fires? Destroying cars? Breaking windows? Blocking highways? Nope. Occupy the office of a university president? Burn up a limo that is the livelihood of some blue collar worker? Go to prison.

Without […]
