Miss USA waves 2010 good-bye

The year is nearly over – time to review what’s happened in 2010 while we look forward to a superb 2011.  I’ve picked a few posts we’ve done each month this year…some were more enlightening, some were more argumentative, and some were just more entertaining.  We took all of December off, but look forward to getting back at posting more in 2011.  Thanks for visiting the site this year, and wish y’all a Happy, Blessed, and Prosperous New Year.  (more…)

After finishing a long, happy, peaceful vacation in the middle of the week, I knew that I would have to return to the stresses of work and see what was happening in the “real world”. Little did I know that this week would include some of the damnedest, most frustrating claims of racism and transparent use of racial wounds that we’ve ever seen. It isn’t the first time, nor will it be the last…but, it was increasingly frustrating to hear more liberal commentors divide the country by race. And worst of all, being able to do it by pointing the finger at conservatives and getting away with it.

I read a refreshing article from Prof. Thomas Sowell yesterday, that made me feel much better that there may just be an eventual end to these bogus claims. Fraudulent use of the race card has left Americans polarized on the issue of what is true racism. True institutional racism that should be fought against lays in the background as liberal extremists would prefer to use cases absent of racial bias or minor prejudices as their standard. As this becomes the standard, you can tell that Americans are becoming increasingly tired of being called racist just because they disagree with the far left, progressive agenda. And hopefully, as Prof. Sowell says in his article, “voters will wise up to race card fraud.”

Dicken Elementary School, Ann Arbor Michigan

Last week, elementary school principal Mike Madison took a group of students to see a rocket scientist. The problem is that he only allowed African American students to attend the trip. Madison wrote a letter home to parents to defend the field trip for black students only as part of his school’s efforts to close the achievement gap between white and black students.

Whether or not the average American realizes it, we are on the brink of an important ideological shift regarding the future of our country.  In clear opposition to America’s Founding Principles of limited government, free enterprise and individual liberty, President Obama and the Democratic Party are fundamentally transforming our nation.  And although Obama ran as a moderate looking to unite during his presidential campaign, he clearly articulated his vision prior to the election.  His goal was simple; to transform America.  A few months after inauguration he outlined his agenda (which was reaffirmed during his first State of the Union Address), and has since worked tirelessly to implement each step he believes will usher in a new era of American life.  An American life unified with leftist values; dependence on big government, and a financial and social system on par with our western European allies.  Call me conservative, a Tea Party member, a right-wing radical or extremist all you want, but the evidence supporting my “theory” of our impending ideological shift by so-called Democratic mandate is overwhelming.  (more…)

Last week I posted Part I of a series where I laid out examples of activists, columnists, professors and journalists manipulating language to marginalize their opponents, stifle debate and push legislation.   Continuing on with that theme here are more examples.

TortureIf you watch Keith Olbermann on any given night, you would think the debate regarding torture and “Enhanced Interrogation Techniques” is a closed one.  (more…)

Pat Buchanan has a long list of political accolades.  As a former adviser to multiple Republican Presidents he has years of experience on Television as well as Radio.  Currently a regular on MSNBC and syndicated columnist, Buchanan is as experienced politically as anyone and is an influential voice in today’s body politic.  I often read his columns on townhall.com with an appreciation for his experience and willingness to say what he believes.  Unfortunately today I wanted to highlight two of his recent columns as I believe his logic and tone do nothing to advance the debate on two touchy subjects.   Until we can get clearer thinking regarding Race and Radical Islam, our collective relations with both will continue to be hampered.

Jimmy Carter meets exiled Hamas leader in 2008

Jimmy Carter meets exiled Hamas leader in 2008

About a month ago, my conservative bro MacGregor posted a piece dissecting Democrats playing the race card in order to win the Health Care debate.  This week, that opinion has become more prominent based on a few national news articles and interviews.  Generally, the conservative media believes the use of racism by the left is mostly a tactic to distract from the sagging support for the Health Care reform bill.  However, we see it less as a gimmick and more as a glimpse into the psyche of the liberal thought process.  Those promoting the racial aspects of dissent see the world through a different prism then the majority of Americans.  This world is defined by race, gender, and class before morals, integrity, and facts.  So does the re-institution of this argument help the Left in anyway?
