Our Fading Heritage

KAY, I MISSED A COUPLE, but I did answer 31 of 33 questions correctly my first and only shot at the gold in this civics quiz sponsored by Our Fading Heritage. My score of 93% placed this 53-year old above the average American taking this test in November. Wrong responses: #14 and #30. Damn, I knew what the Pilgrims were all about, and I knew they weren't Catholics. And with number thirty, I must have internalized wrong advice from Senator John McCain during the presidential debates. Oops. What's really fascinating about this civic literacy quiz is the scorecard showing that...

A bomb rigged to a motorcycle blew up amid a crowd...


Will All True Patriots Please Take A Seat In The Rear Of The Bus

KAY, I'M AS DISTURBED by this persistent Orwellian news flash culture where we find ourselves pushing back as both observer and the observed, as much as the next proud patriot. So let's take a closer look at this article from a Ron Paul supporter, not that there is anything wrong with being a Ron Paul supporter, although this past year I did run across more than a slugfest of rowdy Paulites that gave me pause.

Teddy Roosevelt Had It Right

espite almost certain risk of being tagged a filthy racist pig and anything else the heavy hearted, slippery-lipped high-minded so-called globalist, uh I mean, anti-globalist, uh fiddlesticks, the uh, let's call 'em the "which is it" crowd, can fathom in their ragged pursuit of raging chaos they prefer to call peace in their lifetime—when it comes to immigration and those immigrants who refuse to assimilate into America, TR said it best: "In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated...
