~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
We think we live in extraordinary times, and maybe it will prove to be. However, a little perspective is also needed. (p.s. I didn't write this, but I did add to it.)
For a short perspective at this moment, imagine you were born in 1900 in the USA.
Many would think that that was a pretty simple time of life. Then on your 14th birthday, World War I starts, and ends on your 18th birthday. 22 million people perish in that war, including…
Note: I stumbled upon this article and thought it was interesting in light of the current climate of panic. It was written in 2013 from the New York Times of all places, but aside from the flawed conclusion I think it is worth reading. I've been thinking about how our society has become so prone to fear and panic. I believe it is because now we have social media and 24/7 news coverage. We are just inundated with way too much information. It has become unhealthy for society and will lead to…Continue
10 reasons why I think shutting down the economy, businesses, and mass quarantines are not only unwarranted, but ultimately destructive:
1) The longer this goes on the more damage it does to our economy, possibly leading to a recession or a depression. The economy is our life-blood. If the economy collapses then the health system collapses, and more people will die.
2) It infringes on our Constitutional rights to freely assemble, and can easily be abused by…Continue
Which is worse, the coronavirus or the panic that has ensued as a result? According to some, like NIAID Director Dr. Fauci, it could kill hundreds of thousands or even millions of people. Even though by all accounts the Covid-19 is only marginally worse than the seasonal flu, mainly because it’s a new strain which we currently don’t have a vaccine for. The mortality rate of Wuhan, China and Italy appear to be outliers rather than a true representation. For instance, onboard the closed…Continue
So I've been reading a few articles regarding the current impeachment "inquiry", and to sum them up they make the following points:
-Nancy Pelosi doesn't plan to hold a House-wide vote anytime soon on impeachment.
-The rumor in Washington is that Democrats intend to impeach by Thanksgiving, and start a trail before Christmas.
-Erick Erickson believes the Democrats will drag it out until Thanksgiving, and build articles of impeachment between Thanksgiving and…Continue
Why do leftists hate and vilify white people? Why do they go on about white privilege? The short answer is because whites have been too successful and they don’t like it. Let me explain. At one point in time in history China was set to be the dominate world power. But something happened in the early 15th century. Chinese attitudes began to change during the Ming Dynasty and trade to the outside world was abruptly ended. China stagnated as they cut themselves off from the outside…Continue
In modern times the c-word has become a dirty word and given a bad rap. No, not that c-word. I’m talking about colonialism. The Left has vilified colonialism as one of the great “sins” of the West. Their near-sided view of colonialism is that the more powerful and advanced European nations subjugated less powerful nations, oppressed the native populace, and plundered their resources to enrich the West. However, there’s more to it than that.
They present a very one-sided argument…Continue

I’ve watched as social justice warriors (SJWs), aka cultural Marxists, have slowly taken over the entertainment industry from games, to comic books, and now movies. Over the years I have observed their methods and tactics. The way they think and the way they act. I’ve come up with seven ways how to spot an SJW movie:
1) A strong emphasis on feminism
Lead characters are often portrayed as feminist. Ironically, they often have very masculine traits. The women are…
“There is, in fact, a manly and lawful passion for equality which excites men to wish all to be powerful and honored. This passion tends to elevate the humble to the rank of the great; but there exists also in the human heart a depraved taste for equality, which impels the weak to attempt to lower the powerful to their own level, and reduces men to prefer equality in slavery to inequality with freedom.” —Alexis de Tocqueville
My original blog post…Continue

In the sci-fi tv series Continuum, a group of self-proclaimed freedom fighters named Liber8 travel back in time to try and prevent corporate conglomerates from wrecking their world. In their dystopian future, corporations have become so big and powerful that they have supplanted government, and have imposed a high-tech surveillance police state on the populace. But what seems like sci-fi may not be that far from our reality.
In the later part of the 19th century, America…Continue
The Dark Agenda of the LGBT
That time of year is upon us once again. Pride Month is in full swing as rainbow colors are prominently displayed to inescapable proportions. In recent decades the LGBT has transformed itself into a socio-political movement, exacting tremendous influence in politics, academia,…Continue
What is ethical eating?
There is a segment among the vegetarian and vegan communities that contend that eating meat is morally wrong, and eating vegetables is not only more ethical, but more environmentally friendly as well. Not all vegetarians and vegans hold this view of course, but those that do believe themselves morally superior to those that don’t. They have essentially turned a diet into an ideology, and an ideology into a quasi-religion.
To preface, I…Continue
I keep hearing environmentalists and democrats (i.e. the left in general) talk about saving the planet, but what does that really mean? And why do all their “solutions” to save the planet end up being anti-human? They don’t even try to hide their disdain for people anymore as they seek to curb the population and human activity. When they say they want to eliminate carbon emissions that would mean eliminating you and me because we all breathe out carbon. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has even…Continue
I'm curious what everyone thinks of the temporary 3 week reprieve Trump has given to allow federal workers to be paid. He has said that if they don't come up with a solution by February 15th, the shutdown will resume and he would go the national emergency route.
I'm not sure if this is a good move or not. From what I have seen, most on our side are not happy with it. They see him as either caving or weakening his position. Obviously the Dems are going to promote it as a win for them…Continue

I thought this was kind of interesting, and really puts into perspective how young the United States still is.
Every year in October, Columbus Day is celebrated in several countries in The Americas as well as in Spain and Italy. However, in more recent decades there’s been increasing opposition to Columbus Day in favor of Indigenous Peoples’ Day. According to the Left’s narrative, Christopher Columbus arrival in the New World marked the beginning of one the largest genocides in human history. But was it really? The major problem with this assertion is that the vast majority of natives, some 75 to 95…Continue
I've been thinking about what Andrew Cuomo said, that America "was never that great". That is typical Leftist thinking, although few of them in such positions would be so blunt about saying it. I'm curious, how exactly does Cuomo define greatness? We became a superpower in less than two hundred years of existence. We ended slavery in less than one hundred years of existence. We were the first country to master flight. We were the first to create a nuclear reactor. We were instrumental in…Continue
Once upon a time America was a homogeneous culture. That didn’t mean that we always got along, as evidenced by the Civil War. But it meant that we had certain commonalities, we shared the same values and beliefs. We were Americans, and proud of it. But somewhere along the way things began to change. What started as a small cultural divide has blossomed into a deep chasm of…Continue
