At first glance I thought to myself no way this should be allowed in America. We would be on our way to looking like San Francisco or New Amsterdam. Yet perhaps, this movement is a happy medium for weed smokers in between legalization and incarceration. (more…)

The health care summit today made for some interesting television…if you find policy discussion devoid of any real confrontation interesting. Although boring, I love watching politics in action…I am a political wonk like that. I listened to way too much of it, and jotted down a couple things I liked and didn’t like about today’s forum.   (more…)

Congratulations to Ryan Miller and the United States Men’s Hockey team for upsetting the heavily favored Canadians earlier tonight.  Not quite the Miracle on Ice, and not even an elimination game, but any time you defeat an opponent you haven’t beat in the Olympics for 50 years, it is worthy of celebration. 

Plus, it gives me an excuse to post a photo of the greatest goalie mask of all time (the other side features a bald eagle tearing through the helmet).

Following the jump, is the entire text left behind from Joe Stack explaining the reasoning behind his actions.  Before listening the inevitable spin by the media making this a case of a delusional Tea Party supporter, I thought it would be best to read what this domestic terrorist had to say.  While very long and ranty, his manifesto is oddly coherent.  Stack was obviously a sick man that rationalized his desperate actions by blaming an invisible third party for all that has ruined his life.  But he wasnt a stereotypical partisan man of any sort.  He hates capitalism, but he hates big government.  His one tea-party-esque theme is his displeasure that the system is rigged for the corporation while the individual is left out to fend for themselves.  I can’t imagine being so enraged to even consider such an act; but it’s interesting to see how a man could get to this tragic point.  Read for yourself and comment below…  (more…)

Always interested in breaking down the dueling political dichotomies, I recently stumbled onto an old article from Life Science entitled, Conservatives Happier Than Liberals”.  Having spent a lot of time reading the left, even I was surprised at the blatant bias and backward reasoning the article attempted.  (more…)

The most shocking news from President’s Day did not come from your local furniture store’s crazy sales or the fact that I managed to forget twice that the Post Office was closed.  In Indiana, Sen. Evan Bayh announced his retirement from Congress citing his disillusionment with the entire Congressional system.  The timing of this announcement was strange.  While he is up for re-election in 2010, his job was seen as safe.  He led in polling over the leading Republican challenger by 20 points, and his popularity is polling 15 points higher than Obama in his own state.  The son of a longtime liberal senator, his family legacy is rooted in national politics.  So why the rush to retire?  (more…)

To Serve Or Not To Serve

The policy of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell has been brought to the forefront again by President Obama, most recently in his State of the Union Address.  Here on ThreeConservativeBros, we have debated the issue at length, often times coming up with more questions than proposed solutions to the problem.  Whether or not you agree or disagree with the long standing policy’s dissolution is not my aim here, it’s to let people know that socials issues are usually complex, emotional and rarely seem to have a clear or fair answer.  I’ve tried to make it a point in my dealings with socially complex, hot button issues like DADT, to take a moderate tone, search for the facts, and identify the tactics employed by all sides of the argument.  We must approach these types of issues with an aim towards clarity, searching for common levels of agreement rather than surface level emoting or stubborn xenophobia.  (more…)
