THE NEW FRONTIER

Vassar Bushmills The album was entitled #16, (1963) and inspired by none other than John F Kennedy, a Democrat. Go Figure It was the last album of theirs I ever bought. I wonder if the words will work today?     ICYMI from Vassar Bushmills.com The Promise of Socialism in a [Read More]

New York Times Scandal??? What Scandal?

The New York Times Scandal? What scandal? Whatever can you mean? I always have understood that a scandal was an unusual and unexpected immoral or dishonest behavior from a person or institution previously considered moral, honest and reputable. So I admit to being confused. The fracas appears to be about [Read More]

Imprinting America on Kids

Vassar Bushmills This short piece is for Teaching Vets (who would appreciate your support) and who someday will plant these seed as he/she looks into a room full of un-woke teenagers. This also applies to home-schooling parents (and many blessings on your House for your undertaking) and of course, regular citizens today who should be [Read More]

FIRST PRINCIPLES ABOUT AMERICA; FIRST QUESTIONS

Vassar Bushmills Is America an accident? A freak of Nature?  Or, is America the product of Intelligent Design? I don’t intend to try to answer the second half of that question here as that requires an inquiry into philosophy and theology. But by the longest list of scientific and common sense proofs, [Read More]

FIRST PRINCIPLES: FIRST IMPRESSIONS ABOUT AMERICA

Vassar Bushmills Anyone, anywhere, who hears the name “America” already has a first impression about America; either positive or negative. It doesn’t matter if he/she is 18 or 80, and located anywhere in the world. If abroad those impressions are a mixture of street talk, music, films, and of course, relatives [Read More]

Democrats: Enabling dangerous pathologies in black America

If Dems were parents and black Americans were their children, we would clearly see that Dems are enablers cultivating their children’s worst behaviors. Although I no longer post on my real-me Facebook account, I still lurk periodically. One of the most interesting things about doing so is seeing what my [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 4/10/19 — the flyover country edition

This discursive Bookworm Beat wanders from American black culture, to evil Leftists, to the wonders of Wal-Mart versus the horrors of socialized medicine. Everything Leftists hate about America. I’ve been spending some time of late in small town America — in Eastern Tennessee to be specific. Frankly, I can see why [Read More]

Highwaymen: Frank Hamer and a modern culture that resists redemption

A WaPo op-ed about The Highwaymen’s retelling of Frank Hamer’s hunt for Bonnie and Clyde speaks volumes about how Leftists reject the idea of redemption.

A theory behind why government is sexualizing children

Governments are enthusiastically weaponizing the Leftist trend of sexualizing children, because doing so dramatically increases government power. Yesterday I caught up with a month-old article from The Federalist, entitled The Pedophile Project: Your 7-Year-Old Is Next On The Sexual Revolution’s Hit Parade. The article details the myriad ways in which [Read More]

Steve Hilton: Beware the populism of the left (video)
