This Seems Like a Really Big Win

I am so embarrassed. I didn’t even know that Fred Sauer, Gretchen Logue, and Anne Gassel were suing Missouri over Common Core. Did you know that? (I probably knew it and forgot. Sorry.) But here’s the thing: THEY WON!!!! Wait. YOU won. You won because Fred, Gretchen, and Anne stuck their necks out for you.…

The tangled web of net neutrality

A friend asked my thoughts on net neutrality. I hemmed and hawed and told her a story she probably didn’t want to hear. The best I could come up with was: I don’t trust the FCC or the Obama Administration to do anything honest I don’t trust the Republican establishment to do anything right First, the Obama…

It’s Not Pro-Immigrant; It’s Anti-American

Let’s be honest with ourselves: President Obama’s unilateral, dictatorial action on immigration is not to benefit illegals. It’s to punish American voters for rejecting him. This is personal. In two years, the next American president will let this and many other Obama executive orders expire. Executive orders are not law. They expire with the term…

Michelle Obama’s Dictates Force Eureka High PTO To Beg

When did first ladies become dictators? Seriously. The president’s family has no more authority than anyone else. The reason people show contempt for activist spouses of presidents is the same reason history hates Marie Antoinette. I know, the all-Democrat Congress passed the school nutrition law in 2010, but Michelle Obama wrote it. Michelle Obama has…

The GOP Is Losing Its Base

Nearly 3 million Americans will die before the next Congress is seated in 2015. How dare Republican elites ask them to die waiting for their freedom. I was part of twitter conversation Saturday. I retweeted @DanStlMo’s tweet: I am no longer a member or supporter of the Republican party. #toct — DanStlMo (@DanStlMo) August 24,…

How I Would Vote on Gay Marriage Cases

I’m not a lawyer. And I’m not particularly smart. But that doesn’t stop me from writing my opinion. Rather, I’m a libertarian-ish conservative. I like a small central government that protects us from evil people in other countries and delivers mail. And prosecutes people who do great harm across state lines. The Supreme Court has…

Sandy Exposes Limits Of Government

Barack Obama ridiculed George W. Bush for Katrina. As people starve and beg for water in Rockaways, Obama’s promises to create heaven on earth through government look foolish and born of ignorance. Obama believes that government can solve any problem, large or small. But his FEMA can’t get water to people in New York City.…

Socialism Sucks. Here’s How to Avoid It In America

Some of the “cool” kids say they like socialism. Of course they have no emotional clue what socialism is. Maybe they’ve read about socialism, seen the movies, and heard about it from their college professors—ya know, like the one who actually visited the old Soviet Union. But those sources give only an intellectual view of…

The Old Reagan Soviet Jokes Are on US

Ronald Reagan loved to tell jokes about the Soviet Union. If Obama’s re-elected, though, these same jokes could be turned on the United States. Some of them already can be. It’s hard to get an automobile in the United States. They are owned mainly by elite bureaucrats. It takes an average of 10 years to…
