We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Papers!

We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Papers!

On Monday, the Supreme Court, in a 7-2 ruling, struck down the State of Arizona’s voter-ID law. Across the Nation, a hue and cry rose from conservatives. From their perspective, the Supremes had just shredded not only the 10th Amendment to the Constitution, but the sanctity and security of elections to come.

Welcome To The Wild Midwest

Welcome To The Wild Midwest

Liberals say “gun control” will cure everything from drug-fueled gang wars to jaywalking. But Newtown, Conn., already had the laws that the anti-Bill of Rights types want to impose on the rest of us. And Newtown is a libertarian paradise compared to Chicago.

The 62 Percent

The 62 Percent

Nearly two out of three Americans believe gathering intelligence on potential terrorism is more important than their Constitutionally affirmed freedom. As a Nation, we are more unified about turning over our freedoms than we are about virtually anything else of significance.

The Terrorists Won

The Terrorists Won

When terrorists attack, we turn to our government and beg for shelter like a battered wife begging forgiveness for overcooking the pot roast. We look past the rape of our liberty to the happy home of safety. And we trust a government that has repeatedly proven it’s almost as responsible as a teenage girl with an unsecured credit card.

America Was Asking For It

America Was Asking For It

If you were among those who watched Tuesday morning’s House Ways and Means Committee hearings on the Internal Revenue Service scandal, a tip o’ the cap, doff of the lid and tap of the brim to you. Out of mere coincidence, President Barack Obama chose that same time frame to wander into the Rose Garden and whine about some Federal judicial appointees having a tough time of it.

Doing It Wrong

Doing It Wrong

Late last week, as the controversies created by President Barack Obama and his Administration came dangerously close to spinning out of control, Attorney General Eric Holder stepped before select members of the Fourth Estate in an effort to turn America’s frown upside down. Of course, Holder required the reporters to keep their confab “off the record.”

There’s Only One ‘Fair’ Tax Plan

There’s Only One ‘Fair’ Tax Plan

In the late 1990s, a group of green-eye-shade types put their heads together to come up with a way not only to protect their fellow citizens from Uncle Sam’s shock troops, but to render the shock troops themselves obsolete. The fruit of their considerable economic IQs is the FairTax.

The Last Man Standing

The Last Man Standing

With the scandals President Barack Obama and his henchmen have created polluting the national discourse, it is becoming increasingly apparent that a special prosecutor will be appointed soon. Here’s a thought that ought to keep you awake tonight: What if Obama himself ends up facing the pokey?

Imagining Obama

Imagining Obama

Imagine a world in which President Barack Obama is actually competent and his cronies are honest and dedicated public servants, as opposed to wire-pulling cretins who think the public exists to serve them. Instead, what some Democrats still call an “Administration” more closely resembles a crime syndicate.

Jumping The Shark

Jumping The Shark

In the television business, they call it “jumping the shark.” The phrase was inspired by a rather infamous episode of “Happy Days.” In the years that followed, “jumping the shark” entered the lexicon as a phrase that identifies the subject as having passed the point of value on the path to self-parody. Even those few men who have inhabited the highest office in the land have leaped over the proverbial predator.
