I have noticed an increase in massive marches and demonstrations in the United States over the last ten years. Some see this as a healthy by-product of democracy. I think it is the opposite. I think it is an indicator that democracy is in some stage of collapse. Certainly, any legitimate democracy should grant a free right to assemble, but that the people feel they have to assemble in the first place in order for anything to get done means that there is the stench of something very rotten in Denmark. It isn’t easy to put one’s finger on what it is–but that’s precisely part of the problem. If you want to get a feel for how the Republic is really doing these days, don’t look to that meaningless ‘State of the Union’ speech given by the president each year. Look to the streets and see how many, and how often, the people are coursing through them.

Was reading Alec Baldwin’s “goodbye” this morning and saw this comment: As progressive as I’ve been in my politics, there are other things I don’t think of as liberal or progressive, just common sense. This statement concisely summarizes why progressivism, and progressives, are dangerous. They do not view a large number of their viewpoints, up […]

Limbaugh and others are correct in detecting the eugenics thinking behind this comment but do not go far enough in their explanation. The problem is that a moment’s thought, especially amongst those with only a passing knowledge of the phrase ‘eugenics’, would recall that early 20th century eugenics had essentially embraced Darwin’s formula, “Survival of the fittest.” Given that evolution, as expressed in this maxim, was a raw scientific fact, early eugenicists saw the genetically inferior as a burden on society that needed to be eliminated. So how was Gruber being like a eugenicist if he was targeting the genetically fit?

Every June, we run a donor drive. In getting this year’s ready, I noted that my typical proviso that ACM is not tax-exempt had more significance than in previous years. Over the last few weeks we have been regaled with case after case of conservative, Christian, anti-Obama, anti-Obama agenda organizations that have been targeted by […]

While this has been going on for years, the recent spate of over-the-top reactions to ‘guns’ in the schools is beginning to illustrate the consequences of ‘political correctness’ that people have also been warning about for years. In a word, we are seeing the emergence of a soft tyranny, a stripping away of liberties, a […]

The 2012 election was stolen, Alinsky-style. Who knows what other tactics they used that we haven’t even discovered yet. We may even ask: what is it they did that is so much worse than the IRS thing that they don’t want us to know about? After all, they were the ones who spilled the beans on the IRS scandal. We’ll never know, and that is the problem: we can never know if the truth is the truth, when it comes from the government’s lips.

The biggest cause of climate change is climate changers: human beings. Deciding to stop at two children, or at least to have one child less, is the simplest, quickest and most significant thing any of us could do to leave a sustainable and habitable planet for our children and grandchildren.
