If Elizabeth Warren is Special then We’re All Special

Warren's DNA results
Elizabeth Warren finally took a DNA test to put her ancestry to rest once and for all. It was quickly reported that she had a full-blooded Indian ancestor within 6-10 generations. Well, there you have it! She has a new campaign add and an entire web page dedicated to her "Native American Heritage". This is an example of a lie snowballing. Once you tell the lie, you have to support the lie and the ...

American Sentiment for Immigrants

Violence in South Africa
I often post stories from other countries as I find what happens there instructive. Wisdom is looking at the mistakes of others and learning from them without having to make the same mistakes yourself. This kind of violence is abhorrent. Of course we all know that in the end the choice to be violent or not is an individual one. It's a particular kind of weakness of mind that blames others for y...

Is No Bail Noble?

No Bail in California
You get arrested for a crime and if you can pay a certain amount of money they will let you go free until your trial. That money is known as "bail". Obviously, if you don't have the money you stay in jail until your trial. This means that you can't work during that time, will likely be fired for not showing up, and therefore have no way of ever getting that money. In California they see this as an...

The Case for Genetically Engineering Ethical Humans

Opposition is required
Control! Control! Control! Do as they say you should do because, well, they know better. And if you don't, then they will force you! Since they have found (over the last several thousands years) that they can't do that by force they now suggest to do it via genetics. If you can't get your mind right, and they can't force you to, then they'll just make you a new mind. What spurred this author to su...

Crying Nazi and Goodwin’s Law

Cry Hitler Wolf
"We already scrub the worst of the images and make sure the viewer is warned that they may be “disturbing.” Of course they’re disturbing." This is how people come to not know just how bad a Nazi, and Hitler, were. After WWII the allies intentionally put out images and movies about the concentration camps. So in the beginning every knew how bad it was. That is how Hitler's name became such a cur...

Obama Administration Knowingly Funded al-Qaeda Affiliate

Obama
I don't like Obama. He annoys me in personality and policy. Unlike some I still must look at his actions rationally. I've seen this headline splashed all over the conservative pages as a gotcha moment against Obama. I'm not so sure it is. "...the Obama administration approved a grant of $200,000 of taxpayer money to an al-Qaeda affiliate in Sudan — a decade after the U.S. Treasury designated it as...

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: A Knife in Need of Sharpening

Dumb as a box of rocks
I have two saying I often use to express my wonderment at some people. I say either, "They're as dumb as a box of rocks" or I say, "They don't have the brains God gave a stick." I have a feeling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez falls into one of those two camps. It has often been said that socialists lack a basic understanding of economics. This is no less true of newly primaried socialist Alexandria O...

A Single Paragraph on Voter Suppression is – Full of It

Voters being suppressed.
This post is about just the first paragraph of the story I've linked to below. As you know my posts aren't so much about the linked article as they are inspired by something I read therein. I provide the link so you can see the source of that inspiration for yourself and maybe see what I saw or perhaps see how I over think things. This particular story is one I will tell you I didn't read. I got s...

Nationalism: Not all it’s Cracked up to Be or Is It?

Nationalism and Hate
It is interesting to me how often Obama made astute observations which directed him to the wrong conclusions. It's perhaps the hallmark of his presidency. As Reagan said about such people, he knows so much, that isn't so. Obama correctly observes the rise of nationalism, he correctly observes the resentment against immigration, he correctly observes the increased frustration with globalism. Ye...

Voter ID Requirements Makes Sense

Can't Vote Here
This is a great video. I've seen it before but watched it again because it still stuns me. Some people think that black people and people in other minority groups are either too stupid, too uneducated, or too unresourceful to obtain a valid state identification. The video shows some cherry picked whites giving the pat leftist answers about why we can't have voter ID laws. In case you haven't he...

Pay the Homeless?

Money in Cup
The long read editorial linked below is about the homeless. But that's not what I want to comment on. The author tells of an early experience he had that shaped his view of the homeless. One day he purchased some pretzels for a homeless man to have something to eat. The man was thankful but said the pretzels were useless to him as his teeth were in such poor condition he could not eat them. That c...

Republican or Conservative Do You Have to Choose?

Conservative Puppets
I am often called a conservative though I consider myself a liberal in the classical definition of the word. The only thing I want to conserve politically is liberty. But I must admit that personally speaking I would love to conserve strong families with both parents and there are probably some other social things I want to conserve on a purely personal level, but as I write this, I struggle to th...

Supreme Court Ruling on Public Sector Union Dues

Of the three cases I've commented on this week this is the one that gives me the most hope to write about. It represents the correction of what I consider to be a great wrong. It overturns a previous court ruling that allowed a wrong to take place. Unions exist to represent their members. Much of what they do is negotiate wages. If you have a company of 1000 workers with 500 union members the o...

Supreme Court Ruling on California Abortion Information Law

Little baby feet
I don't believe that the government has the right to force someone to say something. As a nation we have refrained from passing such laws. There is one area where we have made an exception - we force companies to tell us about their products. For example a drug company is forced to tell the side effects and a food company is forced to give information about the ingredients and a doctor is forced t...

Is immigration about racism or respect?

No human being is illegal
The below video explains correctly that in the early days of America there was no such thing as illegal immigration and that we had open borders. What was controlled was not who came here but who was a citizen. That's why naturalization was originally the purview of the federal government and immigration was up to each state. That changed relatively soon after the nation's founding with legal meas...
