Rich Man Saved from Mob of 12

Justice prevails as another extremely wealthy politician is saved from having to face any consequences for his actions. The system works!

The GOP: Staunch Defender of Traditional Marriage!

…appointed the judges who just struck down DOMA. But we urgently *must* vote for Romney because he’s going to give us the judges who, this time for sure, will overturn Roe–such as Kennedy, Souter, and O’Connor. Trust them. This time for sure. No. Really. [Read more...]

Rich to our Troops

Self-sacrifice for thee, but not for me. Thanks for defending our country while I got rich off it. Tough luck about the missing limbs, brain injuries, ruined families, soaring suicide rates, and landfill burials. I’m outta here! Gotta protect the investment and look out for Numero Uno! Not only can you not serve God and [Read More...]

A culture of people…

like Francesca Eastwood are the ones who get most upset that the Catholic Church has a lot of art available for any riff raff off the street to go and see any time they like.  People who wantonly burn $100,000 (or, in the case of our Ruling Class, $1,000,000,000,000 on foolish wars) are the ones [Read More...]

Yes, yes. I realize it’s a ritually impure source

…full of leftist cooties and other terrible defiling things. Still, I think the actual facts discussed in this article should be troubling. The actual function of the police is supposed to be to defend the common good from criminals, not to entice marginal people to be criminals and provide them with the means to do [Read More...]

Why it’s Our Ruling Class vs. the Rest of Us

Occupy the Family

Kevin O’Brien make a very sound point: Occupy Wall Street and related groups were indignant, and rightly so, that the wealthiest one percent of the population seems to control the government. We would all agree that in a democratic republic, policy that affects every American should not be set by an elite, particularly if that [Read More...]
