What Happened To Our Civility?

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

We see an increased level of crime in our country. We see an increased level of negative political discourse. More importantly in our daily actions with the people around us, we see a degradation of human interaction and consideration for people in general. That has been on full display recently in one of my main […]

Goodbye Ms. Pelosi

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

As soon as the news broke, a cavalcade of plaudits started coming in from left-of-center politicians and journalists lauding the accomplishments of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House and leader of her party.  Ms. Pelosi had two four-year stints as Speaker. Let’s look at her years as leader of the House and second in […]

The Joys of Being a Californian

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Our California governor Gallivanting Gavin has his eyes on running for President, assuming the octogenarian in the White House bows out.  Gavin will be telling America what a wonderful job he has done here in California to deserve being promoted to ruling over all fifty states.  We should review the sparkling aspects these days of […]

Big Brother Has Finally Arrived

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Absence of Malice is a 1981 Sydney Pollack film starring Paul Newman that I recently rewatched.  If you have not seen it — or have not recently — it is timeless. Newman’s character is accused of killing a union boss and he asserts he is innocent of the charge. Sally Field plays a reporter who […]

What This Election is About

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

Editors’ Note: It is no secret that The Prickly Pear believes strongly in the exceptional character of America since its founding as a Republic with individual sovereignty and government by consent of ‘We the People’.

Cynical Legislation to Destroy Jobs

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

The people who created this legislation obviously think we are all fools. Allowing this […]

The Democrats always invoke thoughts in me of the 1984 Sparks song: All you ever think about is race All you ever think about exclusively All you ever think about is race, all right with me Of course, the song used a different word than “race” and, gosh, do I ever wish it were the […]

The Coming Radical Political Shift

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Editors’ Note: The following article defines today’s Democrat party accurately. One no longer has to dissect through their ‘moderate’ messaging that has hidden their true agenda for decades. What you are seeing is what we get when today’s Democrats have unbalanced power. The Founders’ design of our Republic made every citizen sovereign rather than the […]

Result of Poor Municipal Leadership

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

There are many reasons for people to relocate within the United States. Traditionally, it has been because of physical environment, job opportunities or family ties. Recently there have been reasons added to that such as the cost of housing or the nature of the government in the state or locale in which one is relocating. […]

Stealing Our Voting Rights from Us

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

One of the most annoying aspects of our modern political discussions is how Democrats or their media mouthpieces are constantly pointing out that our Democracy is in danger. This came on the heels of The Washington Post’s immensely stupid new slogan “Democracy Dies in Darkness.” Once again Democrats in California are actively attempting to take […]
