Pray for Our Nation

I can’t believe I missed it. A 54-day novena for our nation. It ends on October 7 with the Rosary Coast-to-Coast. Which means it started before I learned of either. But that’s okay. You don’t have to do the novena to do say the Rosary. Just show up at any of the Rosary stations around the area at 3:00 on October 7. I’m helping organize one location at the Black Madonna Shrine in Eureka/Pacific area. Read more →

I Am a Right-Leaning Libertarian

What political label do you give yourself? Yesterday, I blogged about calling myself a Republican. I was a kid. Then, from about 1996 on, I called myself a conservative. Over the past year or so, I’ve taken on the label of libertarian. Now, a simple online test confirms that I’m a right-leaning conservative. [Take the test yourself] That’s exciting, because I feel like I need a new label. Labels Matter I know there was a movement a couple of years ago to abolish political and ideological labels.

The Establishment’s Creed

I believe in cash, the money almighty, creator of happiness and wealth; and in Big Corporations, its only friend, which were conceived by the holy government, born of the power to tax, suffered under regulations, were criticized, bankrupted, and neglected. On the second vote, the bail-out passed, and they ascended into The Fed. They are seated at the right hand of Government from whence they shall come to lobby for tax breaks with more debt.

This Is The Infographic That The Whole Republican Party Is Freaking Out About

The 3 million McCain voters who didn’t vote for Romney? They’re dead. [Click image to view full size. Please forward, download, and print. This is important.] To survive, the GOP needs to stop being afraid of Millennials and tell them truth: they can move out of mom and dad’s house, they can drop out of school, they can quit their dead-end job with the idiot supervisor. But they can’t get away from government and debt. Read more →

This Sums Up Everything I Believe Better Than I Ever Could

[caption id=“” align=“alignright” width=“463”] Buckley (right) and L. Brent Bozell Jr. promote their book McCarthy and His Enemies, 1954 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)[/caption] The Liberal Kirsten Powers (my favorite liberal at times) described the leftist media’s mania as “absolutely, utterly insane.” What triggered the maniacal insanity from MSNBC and The New York Times (among others) was Mitt Romney’s public dismay over the way Barack Obama’s State Department responded to terror attacks on US embassies in Egypt and Libya.

Part 2: Here Is Todd Akin’s Real Crime

Part 2 of 3 | Read Part 1 | Read Part 3 What is Todd’s real crime? He’s a damaged candidate, sure, but he is not a damaged man. He was wrong, but** he erred on the side of life**. It says something about a society and political mood where a man can be disqualified for loving life and God, but another man celebrated for enabling the slaughter of living children with surgical scissors through the base of their skulls.

Don’t Bet On Election Outcomes

“Anybody will beat Obama.” I get some comments and see a lot of tweets about the inevitability that any Republican will win in November. That’s frightening. The prospect of a Republican beating Obama isn’t frightening, of course—any of the four remaining candidates would be night and day better for our future. What’s frightening is that so many people bet on the unknowable. Except in rare cases—one candidate is caught stealing from a church weeks before the election—political elections carry too many variables for anyone to predict their results a month in advance, much less three-quarters of a year ahead.
