The Real Purpose of ‘Cancel Culture’

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

A culture is far deeper than politics. It’s a national identity encompassing history, education, arts and entertainment, science, health, relationships … everything constituting the core values of any country. Individualism has traditionally been the common denominator anchoring all other aspects of America’s cultural distinctiveness. Valuing sovereignty of the individual makes American culture exceptional; therefore, “Cancel […]

Learning From Failure – Get in the Fight Now!

Estimated Reading Time: 6 minutes

It has often been said that you learn more from failure than from success. We don’t doubt the wisdom in that observation. So, if it is true, we need to look at the state of American Conservatism today. This is the movement that supports the Constitution, the ideas of limited government, personal liberty, personal responsibility, […]

Opposition is Rising to Teacher Union-Mandated Shutdowns

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Refusing to accept responsibility for Covid-related lockdowns, the American Federation of Teachers tars Republicans. In a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed, former New Jersey governor Chris Christie, a Republican, correctly blamed the nation’s teachers unions for the overwrought Covid-related lockdowns that have strangled public education throughout much of the country. The American Federation of Teachers took umbrage at the […]

Rep. Andy Biggs Says Follow the Science, Open Schools

Estimated Reading Time: 12 minutes

It’s past time to open schools, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., says. “The percentages for teachers or students is really, really low,” Biggs, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, says of the risk of contracting COVID-19. “In Florida, they’re playing sports.” “The flip side of it, of course, is this isolation, this online learning, this basic […]

On ‘People of Color’ and ‘Systemic Racism’ — And Why I Am Sick of Hearing It

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

I am sick of it. I really am sick of it. I understand, better than most, what prejudice is. When I was a boy, I went bowling with friends. Someone else put chewed gum on my seat as a practical joke. I did not see it, and I sat on it. It ruined my pants. […]

I Do Not Like This Woke Flimflam

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

The left bans books by Dr. Seuss and Ryan Anderson, showing they’ve become more theocratic than progressive. When I was a boy in school, we were often encouraged to read banned books. Back then, to censor anyone was about the least hip thing you could do, the province of the glowering churchman and the cordless […]

A Different Homage to Rush

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

After Rush died, I was struck like so many others. I rarely listened to him because if I had the radio on during his hours I would be listening to Dennis Prager.  While listening to the reaction to his leaving us, something stated by Tucker Carlson literally caused me to light up. He said that […]

Diversity Agonies

Estimated Reading Time: 8 minutes

The racial diversity movement began with R. Roosevelt Thomas, Jr., with his 1990 Harvard Business Review article, “From Affirmative Action to Affirming Diversity.” His thesis was that with the growth of racial minorities in the nation, it would behoove companies to have more diversity in their ranks if they wanted to understand their customers, in […]

Rush Limbaugh: Conservative Icon and Giant

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Rush Limbaugh’s passing this week triggered sadness on the Right and glee on the Left. The Left’s grave dancers exulted in his death, believing that they had just rid themselves of one of America’s greatest and most persuasive opponents of their twisted views favoring an Orwellian future for our nation. With Rush no longer available to […]

American K-12 science education gone bad

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

I don’t often write an article about someone else’s article but Shepard Barbash’s deeply researched piece “Science betrayed” deserves a wide readership. His subtitle says it all: “The propaganda infecting K–12 science curricula, especially on the environment, won’t go away.” Barbash first looks at the history, then where we are today. The entrenchment of the great […]
