The Real 99%

Cartoonist Michael Ramirez has been highlighting some really stark comparisons in his political cartoons lately. The other day I shared his view on modern society’s upside down perception of heroes and villains. He’s back today with another poignant contrast: I’m kind of fed up with this “we’re the 99%” baloney, which casts millionaires and billionaires as the other 1% who are ruining the world. In actuality, anyone making just above $300,000 per year is part of that 1%, which means… Read more »

The Latest Manifestation of the Sinfulness of Man

There are so many disturbing aspects of the “occupy” movement that it’s difficult to catalog them all. At its root is the desire to get something for nothing, a malady born out of an entitlement mentality that we have nurtured in our society. Where will it end? That mentality is central to the greatest heresy of the twentieth century, one that ultimately led to the deaths of more than thirty million in the Soviet Union, even more in China, and… Read more »

Obama vs. Ryan

Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin has gone where few congressmen have dared to tread—into the thicket of budget/entitlement reform.

His path leads to energizing American entrepreneurship and significantly reducing the debt over the… Read more »

Obama's Religious Beliefs

A poll stunned the news media last week, and its reverberations haven’t ceased. Fully one in five Americans believe Obama is a Muslim.

What’s the truth? First, I don’t believe Obama is a Muslim. To be a real Muslim, he would have to be adhering to all the tenets of… Read more »

What Is College Teaching Your Child?

Ever since the revolutionary movements of the 1960s, college education has been altered for the worse. It already had been affected by progressivism, but the radicalism of that era injected steroids into the progressivism that already existed. Now, forty years later, the radicals who protested being taught Western Civilization and the free market are the professors, by and large. Homegrown terrorists like William Ayers are now inculcating their Marxist philosophy into the students’ immature minds. They still hate the nation that allows them… Read more »

This Is Peaceful?

Let’s see, what do we have here? Why, that’s an image of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer dressed as a pinata. The sign says “Say no to Arizona Republican Party.” There’s a young boy ready to swing at her with a bat, while others in the background are enjoying the sight. No violence here. No disrespect for authority. It’s all in your imagination. Here we have a demonstrator against the new Arizona law that seeks to identify illegal aliens. He’s outraged…. Read more »
