By yielding to a false form of civility, we sometimes allow our critics to intimidate us. As I have said, active citizens are often subjected to truly vile attacks. They are branded as mean-spirited, racist, Uncle Tom, homophobic, sexist, et cetera. To this we often respond, if not succumb, so as not to be constantly fighting by trying to be to non-judgmental. That is,we censor ourselves. This is not civility. It is cowardice, or well-intentioned self-deception at best. — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

Carol Costello Has Palin-Hatred Syndrome

David Pepe

Friday, Rush Limbaugh, "America's REAL anchorman", commented on the nasty and godless Carol Costello's comments as she rejoiced with great glee over the abuse of Bristol Palin and the media coverage of late, which was a direct shot at the Palin family. Maybe Costello's envy and hatred for Mrs. Palin is because she sees in Sarah someone that she could NEVER be.

The Mindset of the Lottery

David John Marotta

Playing the lottery with anything other than the money you have budgeted for entertainment signifies an external locus of control. That mindset represents a problem worse than the addiction to gambling. The mindset that accompanies the choice of playing the lottery with savings, for example, can prevent you not simply from growing wealth but also from living the life you desire.

Why the Welfare State Isn’t Well and It Isn’t Fair

Dr. Robert R. Owens

Throughout most of the 19th and 20th centuries, socialism had a fairly precise definition, a somewhat clear program, and a generally agreed upon goal. The definition of socialism was some variant of Karl Marx’s well known statement, “From each according to the ability, to each according to their need.” Socialism’s program was the nationalization of all means of production, exchange, and distribution.

U.S. Funnels Billions to Child-Beheading ‘Freedom Fighters’

J. Matt Barber

It has come to light that, under the Obama administration, the U.S. government has been subsidizing, to the tune of billions, another sect of militant extremists who, likewise, are, with an equally religious zeal, torturing, dismembering and beheading children en masse. The only material difference is that, according to officials within the U.S. government, and as per formal U.S. policy, this second batch of terrorist monsters are somehow considered to be “freedom fighters.”

Answering The AWOL GOP

Jim Bowman

With this midterm, wouldn’t it seem as a given that the GOP hierarchy would be salivating for its next go around? Especially so since it was an election for the taking in 2012. Now added to the mix is Obama’s unauthorized policies which have cause untold harm to our country. What more incentive does the GOP require?

Good reason for Mary Landrieu to be concerned

Star Parker

Prospects that three term Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu will return to the US Senate to represent Louisiana for a fourth term are looking increasingly bleak. Senator Landrieu has good reason to be concerned. One reason is disenchantment among Louisiana’s black population, which amounts to 32 percent of the population of the state – the nation’s second largest black population percentage-wise.

If You Had to Explain Today’s America to Founders

Bradlee Dean

Picture this: You’re going to be meeting with George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. They wants to know what has happened to America. What will you say?

Confusing Divergence With Adherence

Bob Ellis

How can you defend Christianity when there are so many bad things from within Christendom? What about all the wars in which Christians have fought? What about all the TV preachers who have abused the trust of people who listen to them? What about all the evil and harmful things done by people who call themselves Christians?

Thoughts on the Coming Election

Dr. Robert R. Owens

The courts have been packed, the banks have been bought off, and the unions use legally mandated dues to support candidates and policies their unwilling members don’t want. Check and check-mate. The situation has become so dire and the hour so late that it appears the only line of defense we have left between the USA and the USSA is a House of Representatives controlled by Progressive Republicans and the hope of a Senate controlled by the same crowd. The old bulls talk conservative to get elected, then join hands across the aisles in a marriage of despotism with deceit.

You Can’t Tame God

Dave Daubenmire

Population statistics reveal that Muslims make up less than 1% of the American population. Government statistics recently showed that the homosexual population makes up 1.6 % of the American population. Let those numbers sink in. Why do both groups make Christians cower and run for cover?

Not the Pastor America Needs, but the Pastor We Deserve

Steve Deace

From the outside, Joel Osteen lives a life the world covets. There’s just one problem with that. I can’t think of a single truly great figure in the 2,000-year history of Christianity who didn’t pay some kind of worldly price for defending the faith—beginning with Christ himself at the Cross. On the other hand, it seems as if the world is paying Osteen quite handsomely for the self-esteem gospel according to Joel.

Cruz: More RINOs Will Get Hillary Elected

Bob Ellis

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has highlighted the insanity of once more in 2016 allowing the liberal RINO establishment to push candidates on us who have proven they will betray Republican (and American) principles. You know, of course, that Albert Einstein is credited with stating that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.

"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
