These are the top stories at American Clarion for the past week. These are the articles our readers found most compelling, and if you missed any of them the first time around, we’re sure you will, too.
Raising dogs instead of kids? (William R. Mann) – I seem to recall reading in numerous places that anything less than three native born children per American family endangers societal viability and the sustainability of a distinct American culture. So it is disturbing to think that married Americans are adopting puppies instead of having children or adopting children. After all, God did say to Adam and Eve, “Be fruitful and multiply.” He did not say, “Raise puppies,” instead. Puppies and kids together, yes. Puppies alone, no.
Which World Do You Live In? (David Mann) – In the course of various discussions about frequently debated subjects, I have observed that there are some people whose viewpoints indicate that they live in the real world, and others whose viewpoints indicate that they live in a fantasy world. By the latter, I refer to people who assume that certain things are true that really aren’t, and that certain things have happened that never really did or could.
Plan to Bankrupt Coal Power Moving Along (Rebekah Rast) – On Jan. 17, 2008, President Obama revealed to the San Francisco Chronicle what is finally becoming reality for America’s main energy producers. He said, “So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.” The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has followed the president’s agenda and is nearing its goal of bankrupting many coal-fired power plants.
Deplorable Injustice Continues for Lt. Michael Behenna (Gina Miller) – Last Thursday, yet another example of the corrupt attempts at appeasement of our enemies within and without was displayed in the rotten-to-the-core decision by three of a five-judge panel of the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces to uphold the insanely unjust conviction of 1st Lt. Michael Behenna for unpremeditated murder of a known al Qaeda operative who was suspected of orchestrating a bombing that injured and killed members of Lt. Behenna’s platoon.
Top Romney Advisor All-in for Obamacare Implementation (Gina Miller) – Again it comes to this: voting for the “lesser of two evils.” Mitt Romney keeps saying that on Day One in office, he will move to repeal Obamacare. Do I even believe Romney’s promise, as it is? The top aide to Romney’s transition team for the White House is a fellow Mormon, former Utah Governor, former head of the Environmental Protection Agency and Health and Human Services Secretary under President George W. Bush, and is a supporter of the states implementing Obamacare “exchanges.”
Pulling the Wool on Unemployment Figures (Rick Manning) – On July 6, I was asked by an Iowa radio host to explain how the unemployment rate could have remained stable at 8.2 percent when only 80,000 jobs were created and there is general economic agreement that the economy must generate 150,000 jobs a month just to keep the unemployment rate flat. This Aha!! Contradiction question has bothered me for quite some time, and the answer is not satisfying.
Obama’s Parade of Vindictive Rage (David Pepe) – President Obama is a subjective narcissist who adheres to lawlessness, moral relativism and is fully opposed to the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God. He is the polar opposite of our Founding Fathers in every way and as we have seen, his chief trait is to display and parade his vindictive rage in all of his anti – constitutional policies. He and his administration will go completely full bore radical and lawless until this November and to do as much damage and destruction to Romany’s personal character and our nation as possible.
WANTED: Real Republicans to Lead South Dakota House (Bob Ellis) – Gordon Howie at The Right Side reiterates what I’ve been saying for a couple of years now: we need real Republican leadership in the South Dakota House, not the kind of leadership we have now–the kind that makes Democrats smile with satisfaction. If we put pressure on our Republican representatives to support new leadership that is fully committed to the Republican agenda, it can happen in 2013.
What Equality Should We Seek in Society? (David John Marotta) – Studies suggest that brains may be wired with either a utopian or a tragic view of the world, corresponding roughly to liberals and conservatives. Although we share a common language, we often intend very different things. Until we analyze what we mean by the terms “just,” “fair” or “equal,” we continue to talk past each other in political debates. Conservatives believe in equal incentives and opportunity, but they realize an equality of results is impossible.
There are two sides to the governor’s bonus plan (Gordon Garnos) – South Dakota’s teachers have turned in almost twice the number of petition signatures to refer House Bill 1234 to a vote of the people in November’s General Election. The teachers’ immediate dislike for the bill was extremely obvious for the Governor’s idea to get more money to our teachers and, at the same time, improve the education system in the state. Like most issues, there are two sides and on both sides public education plans are in the offing.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
