In August of 2016 I posted an article titled: I Carry A Handgun Because…  Considering that article since, I have felt the need to address an equally important issue: why women should carry handguns. I hope to speak more directly to the hearts of women than I did in that earlier [Read More]

Here is a quartet of excellent PragerU videos on such fascinating subjects as healthcare, tyrannical transparency, capitalism’s virtues, and organic foods’ costs.

June 22, 2017 mcdanielm 0

This is a story that provides a clue to why we will ultimately prevail over the barbarians that wish to drive civilization back to the dark ages.

Seattle: Taxing The Second Amendment And Reason

June 19, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    Progressivism is, in many ways, a secular religion. While some progressives profess a faith of one kind or another, many do not.

By: Mike McDaniel    I last updated this series of article in 2014. Much has changed since then, but the problems presented by mandatory, high stakes testing remain.
