Opening the Door on the Stench in South Dakota

Opening the Door on the Stench in South Dakota

There has been a nasty stench in the South Dakota Republican Party for several years now. If you don’t follow politics too closely, you may not have noticed it, and even if you do, the whiff comes and goes. But thankfully, there are a few who are actually within the party and serve in elected office who are willing to rock the boat, who won’t go along with what the establishment tells them to shut up and do, who are willing to swing wide the door on that stench and allow the public to get a good smell of that decay that’s been rotting for so long inside. Lately, thanks to Rep. Stace Nelson and a few others, that door is opening and the light of truth is beginning to shine in.

Executive Orders

Executive Orders

Our nation was not founded to be a centrally planned socially straight-jacketed empire ruled by the decrees of a sovereign. With President Obama, seconded and supported by his Attorney General Holder, deciding not to enforce laws they disagree with, the rule of law has ended in the United States. We can date our passage from a nation of laws to a nation of men not with this momentous decision but more effectively from the moment our elected representatives declined to declare this action to be unconstitutional and illegal.

What Was Wrong With Tiny Tim?

What Was Wrong With Tiny Tim?

Other than Ebenezer Scrooge in Dickens’s story “A Christmas Carol,” Tiny Tim is certainly the most memorable character. Dickens used the boy in the story to soften the hearts of both Scrooge and his readers toward the worthy poor. Although Victorian sentiments questioned the thrift or industry of the masses, a crippled, saintly child was obviously above reproach. In Dickens’s day, the disabled were feared because people believed they could be contagious.

The story of the wooden bowl

The story of the wooden bowl

Here it is, Christmas time again. Digging into my files I discovered a story entitled simply, “The Wooden Bowl,” which is most appropriate for this time of the year. While Christmas is the season for giving, it is also the season for sharing and caring. Thus, today’s column.While I have added to the original story, it hasn’t changed its meaning. You don’t have to be embarrassed if a tear pops up in your eye.

Tim Tebow Should Kill Dogs, Run Over People Like a Good Role Model

Tim Tebow Should Kill Dogs, Run Over People Like a Good Role Model

In a world where academia, the “mainstream” media and other elites have made it clear to the herd that religious beliefs have no place in the “real world,” it can be shocking to some to see a Christian like Tim Tebow who (duh!) takes his faith seriously enough to let it pervade every area of his life. But sportscaster Gregg Doyel gets it, and exposes the hypocrisy of the self-appointed pop-culture guardians.

Why the Economy is Stifled

Why the Economy is Stifled

Why is the economy still stalled? As Home Depot founder Bernie Marcus put it (and I agree with him), the business community is in an extended holding pattern until we see whether we’ll have four more years of this anti-business Marxist in the White House.

Thank U.S. troops, notably wounded warriors

Thank U.S. troops, notably wounded warriors

It has got to add to the struggle for those who return from the battlefield — whether those blessed to return physically and emotionally intact or the 31,927 wounded — or the survivors of the 4,487 killed to be surrounded by a culture of doubt and naysayers. Each and every one of our returning warriors embodies the virtue of our whole people. That virtue is the conviction that the struggle for human freedom must move forward without cessation. It is the thread that bonds us with them.

The Orwellian Republican Voter Guide

The Orwellian Republican Voter Guide

Bill Whittle takes us through the Firewall to take a look at the Orwellian view of the “mainstream” media and others on the Left regarding politics. As you will see, people who want Americans to keep more of the money they have earned are evil, greedy jerks while those who want to take money from those who have earned it are “generous. But there are so many other differences between the two political ideologies…

Roger Williams: The Donkey Whisperer

Roger Williams: The Donkey Whisperer

Here’s a great ad that comes to our attention thanks to Dr. Theo by way of The Hayride. Roger Williams is running for the U.S. House of Representatives from Texas, and he has a fine sense of humor. Can a “donkey whisperer” get through to the unruly and errant donkeys on Capitol Hill? Someone needs too…that, or put them out to pasture.

Trucker Attacked: This is What Democracy Looks Like

Trucker Attacked: This is What Democracy Looks Like

The Marxist Occupy Wall Street tantrum in Portland are attempting to undermine the jobs of their fellow Americans, as well as the access of their fellow Americans to the goods coming through the port at Portland, Oregon. In their efforts to protect their fellow Americans from being contaminated by the free market in Portland, they found it necessary to throw a lit cigarette in the face of a trucker, damage his property, and attempt to drag him from his truck.
