“preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Congratulations, Mr. President. I believe you will “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”  When another man pledged that same thing 8 years ago today I believed that he didn’t mean it, and he spent 8 years proving that he never meant it and didn’t care a thing about it. But that’s over,…

Barack Obama made America a more open society — Myth or Fact?

Barack Obama said that his main goal as President would be to fundamentally transform America. That was the calling cry of his 2008 campaign, e.g., in an October 2008 campaign visit to Columbia, Mo Obama said: “…we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” He backtrakced on that in a Bill O’Reilly…

The Second Amendment is not negotiable

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes….

The art of omission is often the way people lie about something. Say that  someone was in bar room brawl but omit that he was peacefully minding his own business when he was attacked and merely defended himself.

Teachers’ Unions are money laundering operations

Money laundering occurs when crooks camouflage the origin of money acquired from illegal activity through intermediate transfers so that the final transfer appears to be legitimate.  If the origin was drug money but the final transfer appears to be paid in salary by a legitimate business to its officers and employees with income from its legal business…

When Help Turns Into Harm

When Democrats discovered they could no longer prevent black people from voting they set out to persuade black people to vote almost exclusively for them. They promoted welfare programs to create dependency and a sense of entitlement. They demonized Republicans in an effort to convince blacks that Republicans were the enemy and only Democrats would protect them.…

Black and White Thinking and the Gray Area Box

Black and White thinking, in its most extreme form, is called psychological splitting by psychiatrists and psychologists.  It’s defined as, “…the failure in a person’s thinking to bring together the dichotomy of both positive and negative qualities of the self and others into a cohesive, realistic whole.” Splitting is a relatively common defense mechanism for people with borderline…

As in, We’ve all seen these petty office clanjamfries. Clanjamfrie is a Scottish word introduced by Sir Walter Scott in a The Black Dwarf, 1816. From The Scotsman: It could refer to a rowdy set of football fans at the pub; a teenager’s messy, dimly-lit bedroom; even some of the frenzied scenes observed over Black…
