When Michael Jordan first genuflected to Dennis Rodman at the alter of Phil Jackson, America still had a glimmer of innocence. To continue on his glorious path of professional basketball dominance, the Great One needed a masochistic Freak to flog the Opponent on a nightly basis. Little was known about what materially motivated Dennis the … Continue reading Michael Jordan became undisputed NBA Champion of the World as Joe Exotic began Hellish Zoo experiment: America’s Chickens are Coming Home for Good
Alexander Hamilton and the Bill of Rights
It's hard to imagine the U.S. Constitution today without the Bill of Rights trailing right behind those first seven articles that outline the structure of our government. Even when the first drafts of the new constitution were being written, adding a list of protections against government over-reach was a top priority for many of the … Continue reading Alexander Hamilton and the Bill of Rights
Thoughts on Southern Secession
Between the time that Abraham Lincoln began publicly debating slavery issues during his run for Illinois' U.S. Senate seat in 1858, and his election to the White House in 1860, parts of the South and Southwest had undergone the final stage of alienation from the circles of political power in Washington, D.C., and points north. … Continue reading Thoughts on Southern Secession
Are We Ready for a Constitutional Convention?
The case against a Constitutional Convention is starting to surface from true political Conservatives now that 39 states have officially filed applications for such a National meeting with the esteemed House of Representatives.

I'm looking up at this world map on my wall which is sponsored by a medical group that likes to travel and apparently does God's work. The quote at the top of the poster reads, "We find out where conditions are the worst, the places where others are not going, and that's where we want to … Continue reading “Doctors Without Borders”? or “Traveling Within Reason”
The Views of Jefferson & Madison
Letter to the Guccione Collection
Dear Guccione, Your magazine sounds like it has some big-time Potential and I like what I've seen on the site so far except for the farewell sentence of your self-description which wishes your readers ever-lasting Comfort.

Some Thoughts on America’s Predicament
I think what Barack Obama will ultimately teach us is that the system is woefully antiquated and when you get right down to it, who really cares about "Government" anyway? It will always be eventually over-run by hustlers & pimps and there's not much anyone can do about it, at least not in the long … Continue reading Some Thoughts on America’s Predicament
On my Visit to Historical Virginia
Going to the homes of Jefferson and Madison this past week gave me a greater sense of clarity about the Origins of our country and the true Greatness of our Founders, particularly Jefferson. I think the reverence for these men still exists today in America, but on an almost unconscious level. The real enthusiasm … Continue reading On my Visit to Historical Virginia
