So You Think You Can Dance?

Dancing in the Jefferson Memorial last weekend got a group of people arrested, so now they’re planning an even bigger dancing event for Saturday as a point of civil disobedience. The group claimed to be protesting a recent court ruling that says expressive dancing is considered the same as picketing, marching and public speaking, all of which are banned in certain areas of national memorials.

‘You’re A Grand Old Flag’

When’s the last time you heard (or better yet, sung) the lyrics to George M. Cohan’s marvelous tribute to the country he loved? The song “You’re a Grand Old Flag” has a fascinating history.

Why Everything Is Dirtier

I am old enough to have a vague memory of clothes so white they were called bright. This happened despite the absence of additives — the ridiculous varieties of sprays, bottles and packets that fill our cabinets today and that we throw into the wash to try to boost the cleaning power of our pathetic machines and increasingly useless laundry soap.

Webs And Roots

A spider web is a work of art. If you doubt this, gaze upon the freshly made web of a garden spider covered with early morning dew. Each strand is placed purposefully, and its design is almost perfectly symmetrical. Not so the webs of intrigue that infest government at all levels.

Barbarians Inside Our Gates: Who Makes Your List?

In the spring of 1775, silversmith and patriot Paul Revere rode into the cold night to warn that the British were coming. A century and a half later, America helped defeat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan — two nations bent on world domination and extinguishing individual liberty. The world has changed, and the war at home rages. Geographic borders no longer demarcate the saintly from the sinister. 

Honor Those Who Died For Us

Today, all across the United States of America, we take time to honor our fallen soldiers. We honor them because they chose to defend us, and they died in that defense. We honor them because they chose to serve, even if it was unpopular or dangerous. We honor them because their blood purchased our freedom.

Jailed For Questioning Barack Obama

Some of the more emotional reunions I have ever witnessed occurred at airports. Few can match the joy of wives (and, sometimes, husbands) and children as they welcome a service member returning safely from overseas. This past Saturday, such a reunion took place at Baltimore Washington International Airport. But in this case, the highly decorated veteran wasn’t returning from Iraq or Afghanistan. Instead, he had just been released from military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.

Representative Ron Paul Introduces Bill To Allow Sale Of Raw Milk Across State Lines

Representative Ron Paul asks, “How much freedom do we have if we can’t even drink unpasteurized milk?” in a statement on his website announcing his introduction of HR 1830 into the House. The bill would allow the shipment and distribution of unpasteurized milk and milk products for human consumption across state lines, a practice currently forbidden by the Food and Drug Administration.

Expatriation: A Path To Personal Liberty

In 43 BC, warring consuls Antony, Lepidus and Octavian were duking it out with each other over control of Rome following Julius Caesar’s assassination the prior March. Each had legions at his disposal, and Rome’s terrified Senate sat on its hands waiting for the outcome. Ultimately, the three men chose to unite in what became known as the Second Triumvirate, representing the final nail in the coffin in Rome’s transition from republic to malignant autocracy.
