It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favors. — George Washington, Thanksgiving Proclamation October 3, 1789

Thinking Reasonably Part 2

Dale Pflug

Did you ever have someone tell you that something was too political, or that they hate to discuss politics? If you mention the word politics, you will probably offend at least one person in any group. To shut off a conversation, just say “sorry, but I don’t talk about politics”.

One Guaranteed Way to Kill the Church in America

Steve Deace

Suppose you wanted to eradicate your opposition. However, you wanted to do so in a way that avoided any blowback, and lulled your opposition to sleep so that they wouldn’t know what hit them until it was too late. Rather than a full-frontal assault, you might try subtlety instead. Say, the introduction of a lie that became repeated so often by those with influence it was accepted as truth. Despite the fact all of the actual hard evidence says to the contrary it is not.

Instruction on How to Speak Leftist

Bob Ellis

The Revolting Truth has some instruction for us on how to speak Leftist. It is somewhat reminiscent of my Guide to LiberalSpeak, compiled after many years of interactions with liberals and intended to help the less-experienced conservative filter through the propaganda and nonsense that makes up 99% of liberal "thought."

Republican Agenda Nowhere to be Found

Bob Ellis

Rush Limbaugh said today he hasn't seen much from the Republicans in the way of an agenda, especially if they get control of the U.S. Senate. I'd have to agree.

Robert Romano

Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe. The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search.

Protect the Free Market, Not Big Labor

Bill Wilson

As we pause this Labor Day to honor the indispensability of American workers – and the essential roles they play in advancing our economy and national fabric – we must also honestly examine the forces currently holding them back. And that starts with a basic acknowledgement that the sweat of our brows is producing diminishing returns – both for ourselves and our families.

Govt Worker Union Day

Rick Manning

Labor Day is the traditional last day of summer, often celebrated by final trips to the shore and followed by public pool closings and other signs that the world is battening down the hatches for colder weather. However what most don’t realize is that the day itself was originally created by organized labor to call attention to the contributions of workers.

Cryptic Medical Bills And Health Insurance

David John Marotta

With a third-party payer involved, health care providers don't need to please their patients to get paid. They need to please their patient's health insurance. If the insurance company isn't satisfied, it isn't going to pay. For this reason, hospital bills are generated with health insurance companies in mind. And health insurance companies, both public and private, have incentives to be difficult to please.

How We Told Our Kids About Sex

J. Matt Barber

Rocker Marilyn Manson, while certainly no role model for children, is, nonetheless, an intelligent chap. He at least calls it how he sees it. “This is the culture you’re raising your kids in,” he once warned of today’s godless, secularized America – one that he helped make so. “Don’t be surprised if it blows up in your face.” And blow up it will.

Why Worry When You Can Pray

Dr. Robert R. Owens

How can I watch with the contextual awareness of an historian the seemingly unstoppable advance of the progressives in their quest to re-build America in their own image without falling victim to the lure of apathy and the thrill of the games?

"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
