Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot And Never Brought To…AAAAAAAAAGH!

Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot And Never Brought To…AAAAAAAAAGH!

If you’re like millions of other Americans, you spent New Year’s Eve among family or friends, happily ringing in 2012, wishing each other the very best of a fresh year. Or, you could have been one of the unfortunate folks in Beebe, Arkansas who had to spend the night in fear of getting brained by […]

Let's Stop the Clubbing of America

Let's Stop the Clubbing of America

It’s not so much that President Obama has hamstrung the economy but that he’s methodically stalked it over the past two and a half years. And now he’s clubbing it to death. Real gross domestic product — the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States — increased at […]

"Because I am an American. And I Can"

There are days I am immensely proud of my friends. Today is one of those days. Prompted by the story about which I wrote in this post, Ben Domenech posted a series of tweets that together are as eloquent a defense of the wonder that is America as I’ve ever read. With his permission, I  […]

The Delivery Presents – Ronald Reagan, America, and the Path to Landslide

I rarely say that my shows are big and important, but Episode 97 just might qualify. If I could, I’d make sure every GOP candidate heard the first half of this week’s show. It struck me a couple weeks ago that our biggest problem as Americans right now doesn’t lie in the political policies from […]

Sixty-Seven Years Ago…

Sixty-Seven Years Ago…

| June 6, 2011 | Reply

I don’t think I can express my thoughts on the 67th anniversary of D-Day any better than did my friend Phineas: Sixty-seven years ago today, American, British, Canadian, French, and Polish soldiers charged the gates of Hell — and won. Pat Austin has a couple thoughts of her own and remembers a pair of soldiers […]

Why Don’t These Two Recovery Lines Match? Love and Optimism is a Big Reason.

Why Don’t These Two Recovery Lines Match? Love and Optimism is a Big Reason.

It has apparently become chic to compare Barack Obama to Ronald Reagan, or at least to compare the Reagan Recovery to the current whatever-the-heck-this-thing-is that the President calls a recovery. Neither Soccer Dad nor Scared Monkeys were particularly amused by the comparison and I recommend their posts to you so you can get the reasoning […]

BREAKING: Barack Obama’s Veins Flow with the Blood of Muggles

It’s not enough that the tainted blood of Dick Cheney flows through the pure veins of the Obamessiah, but now this? How much more can one man endure? Do Sarah Palin and President Obama have anything in common? You betcha. The Tea Party darling and frequent critic of the President are actually cousins, albeit, 10th […]

Memorial Day 2010: Thank You

| May 30, 2010 | 6 Replies

Tomorrow is Memorial Day. I wish I had something wonderful to say here, but I really don’t. When I think of the tens of thousands who spilled their blood so that I and mine didn’t have to spill ours, I am awed. I simply do not have anything adequate to say to express my gratitude. […]

You Know, A Musket Really Does Add to the Thanksgiving Atmosphere

How do you deal with the Thanksgiving Captain Comedown? It helps if you have a pilgrim around with a handy musket. Alternately, having Bill Whittle at the table to deliver the correct historical smackdown helps. If you don’t have either of those readily available, you can probably find some helpful retorts to the progressive “America […]

On America’s Birthday, the Declaration of Independence and Ray Charles

| July 3, 2009 | Reply

Tomorrow is America’s 233rd Birthday and I have to say that she’s still looking pretty darned good for her age. She is the longest-running constitutional republic in the world, the greatest nation ever to exist on the face of the Earth and, despite recent setbacks, the guardian of freedom and liberty around the globe. I […]
