“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

McGovern Becoming an Economic Conservative?

I don’t know what’s happened to the ultra-liberal George McGovern, but his column in the Wall Street Journal today sounds like it could have been written by an orthodox conservative. Under the guise of protecting us from ourselves, the right and the left are becoming ever more aggressive in regulating behavior. Much paternalist scrutiny has […]

Eulogy for Huckabee’s Campaign

The Wall Street Journal has what I believe is a fitting eulogy for Mike Huckabee’s campaign, now that he’s dropped out: Mr. Huckabee’s main weakness was that he seemed to lack any real convictions other than his religious faith.

Ellsworth B-1 Incident in Guam

From Pacific News Center comes word of an accident involving one of the B-1 bombers from Ellsworth Air Force Base in Rapid City, South Dakota. No injuries involved, fortunately. It seems the crew had just exited the aircraft when it rolled into some support vehicles. (Guess they forgot to put it in “Park”) From the […]

The Death Penalty: More Protection for Innocents

GUEST COLUMN By Dudley SharpJustice Matters Often the death penalty dialogue gravitates to the subject of innocents at risk of execution. Seldom is a more common problem reviewed. That is, how innocents are more at risk without the death penalty. Living murderers in prison, after release or escape or after our failures to incarcerate them, […]

California Court Shows Contempt for Parental Rights

A California Appellate Court has effectively made home schooling illegal, further eroding the rights of parents to care for their children in the ways they think most appropriate. Instead, childen will be required to attend government schools, or, at least, have only government approved teachers. This comes only months after the Los Angeles Times reported […]

More Intimidation of Churches in Abortion Debate

In modern America, it seems almost everyone is welcome at the political table. Almost any person or group can legitimately enter the arena of ideas, articulate a position and advocate it’s adoption. Today’s political arena has room for almost every group, except one: Christians. It’s becoming a recurring theme during election season to have everyone […]
