This is a powerful story – and a needed one. You should read it. Too many Ambers exist, in America, and across the world. It is inexcusable.
While the #MeToo movement may cause some of these stories to see daylight, and a few others to result in the stern application of consequences, they are anecdotes. Until we begin to take seriously that Society ignoring the Rule of Law is WHY these happen, that oligarchies exist in communities, high schools, city councils, as well as nations, that too many on our side of the tracks just do not care about […]
Because the issue keeps arising and I tire of re-making the same arguments over and over, here’s a bit on my objection to an Art-5 Convention of States (“COS”).
The government we have now routinely ignores the Constitution. This includes all three federal branches and the governors of every state. We HAVE the Constitution (with one exception, below) that we need to ensure our personal freedom, liberty and prosperity. We have the laws we need, for the most part, to do so.
Neither the Constitution nor the laws are enforced.
Nothing about a COS will change this. The idea that […]
POWER: it’s what identity politics CAN ONLY BE, and IS ONLY, about. If Dems cared about policy, they’d argue policy.
Discussion by Democrats is not about the working man & woman or economic mobility. It’s not about the Middle Class or economic policy & results. Dems don’t campaign on increasing, but on decreasing Americans’ security in our homes, neighborhoods, communities, schools, our borders and across our nation. The Left doesn’t campaign on the results of education policy they have owned since FDR.
They can campaign on none of these honestly. It’s why lying that “you can keep your […]
Ike spent his presidency fighting against his own Pentagon because he didn’t want a huge conventional military to go adventuring. He knew modern war as no one else did, or likely ever will again, and saw no point in wasting lives or treasure on foolish adventurism, & told our enemies to stand down or get nuked. They stood down. He hated CIA and, after the U2 shoot down, never again spoke to them. He warned us about the Military-Industrial-Complex when he left.
To say we didn’t listen is the understatement of the post-Enlightenment Age.
Nixon likely would not have intervened […]
We fought one Cold War against communism. If you don’t get that another Cold War between Liberty and communism is happening again between our own citizens, and is far more likely to turn hot, it’s time to wake the hell up.
Our proxy wars are not in Vietnam, Korea, Grenada – they are in Berkeley, San Jose, Colorado State, Dartmouth. At polling places, PTA meetings, City Councils.
The GOPe thinks this is a disagreement in how to reach common goals.
There ARE no common goals. Every piece of blather about “we’re all in this together,” or, “we all are Americans,” […]
