This Guy for President: 2016

rand-paul

I think I’ve been pretty clear about my disdain for our two party system, particularly for the way in which the Republican Party has abandoned core principles of conservatism in favor of corporatism and imperialism. I like Ron Paul, but more in a nutty-uncle way than in a leader-of-the-free-world way. Honestly, America doesn’t need a [Read More...]

To Answer a Question

Why, after George W. Bush made so many mistakes and violated so many core principles of conservatism, do some of us still think so fondly of him? Because he’s a good man, and no reasonable person could doubt that he loves this country and her people in all our messy weirdness. Because I can’t imagine [Read More...]

I’ve Been Memed

Thanks to Allison for making this! I was also impressed by these balanced and sane thoughts from John Michael Talbot, via his public Facebook page. We may disagree on how to achieve certain goals, but I absolutely agree with the sentiments and the spirit. This needs to be the starting point for anyone who hopes to heal [Read More...]

The Inter-Nicene Creed: On Warring Catholics UPDATED

BloggingWhileIrish

I learned today from some commenter that I’m a member of the “Catholic middle.” I also learned from the same person that I’m a whore for the mammon of public approval, which is high-larious considering the poison that floods my comboxes on a daily basis. It’s always fun to have complete strangers tell you who [Read More...]

Finally, A Political Pairing I Can Believe In!

I thought Clint was terrific, but then again I hate political speeches. After days of tightly scripted and overly-rehearsed political pap, it was strange, raw, clearly improvised, and honest. With every other speaker, the stage direction is tangible: “mention America, pause dramatically, look up and to the left with a misty gaze as though you’re remembering [Read More...]

Ryan, Rand, and the Catholic Angle UPDATED

Even though I misspent about a decade calling myself a Libertarian and paying party dues, I was never suckered in by that nasty old witch Ayn Rand and her cult of personality. Objectivism is a philosophy for college students and people who don’t have kids. A modest sense of enlightened self-interest is not necessarily an [Read More...]

Monday Morning Chicken: Protest Edition

DiamondChick

This is Diamond, enjoying an extra side of “hate” with today’s Monday Morning Chicken. (Because we’re all about the “hate“.) Memo to the gay “marriage” militants: you’ve officially jumped the shark. When you attempt to transform a perfectly mild statement of support for traditional marriage–an opinion held by every rational human on the planet for [Read More...]

Amber the Quisling Chikin Says…

EatMoreChikina

Every day is chicken day around here, but today people are making an effort to eat at Chick-fil-A in order to offset the boycott directed at the chain because its owner opposes gay marriage. As I pointed out here, I don’t really object to people exercising their right not to spend money somewhere for some [Read More...]
