Is Meritocracy Dead in America?

Originally posted 2009-06-29 20:46:54. Republished by Blog Post PromoterIt was a beautiful day on Long Island today, as my daughter fussed over her cap and gown, getting ready for her high school graduation. The rite of passage that is the graduation ceremony was to be the highlight of our day, the last ritual before going […]

The Lobbyist Does Not Speak the Peoples’ Voice

The Constitution lays the foundation for a relationship between the people and their government. This relationship is, to a significant degree, founded on the trust that each citizen places with their elected representatives. These representatives, whether local, regional or national, by being elected to their posts, accept the responsibility of supporting their constituents’ ideals, goals and principles. They become servants of the people, an extension of their individual voices in the collective government they comprise.

On the Precipice

Reagan knew that succumbing to the influence of Soviet domination would have changed, and indeed destroyed our way of life as a free society. This was not an acceptable option.

Know Your America – The 16th Amendment

The enactment of the 16th Amendment significantly changed the character of the American experiment. It took a big bite out of the forbidden fruit that is influence over wealth distribution. One of our founding freedoms -- that the fruits of our labor should be ours to enjoy and dispense with according to our own conscience and convictions -- has been trampled on without recourse and consideration. This is perhaps one of the most fundamental liberties we as Americans have enjoyed and expect it to have been protected by the very Constitution which the 16th Amendment has trampled.

Germany’s Exports Spell Doom for the Eurozone

Posted on 10 April 2011

Remember the eurozone's big crisis? The one that everyone thought had blown over? Well, it isn't over. Like a multi-act play, it's simply been in a period of "intermission." And the next act is going to be much, much worse than the first. In due time, the eurozone will disintegrate. And Germany will be the cause. To understand why - and to explain why the eurozone is still headed for a crack-up - let's begin with Greece. Continue Reading

The Financial Crisis – Part 2: The Rest of the Story

Posted on 10 April 2011

In the first part of this article series, we discovered that by loosening regulations on the housing industry, while simultaneously continuing to federally back deposits and bailout banks in case anything went wrong, the government created a playground for massive speculation. In this second part we will look at why that speculation was focused in real estate, and where the money to fund such speculation came from in the first place. Continue Reading

An American Entrepreneur

This slightly humorous but nonetheless serious expose of the very real costs associated with irresponsible behavior by some. Its may not seem like a significant issue until you sit down and really analyze and calculate the real consequences of these types of a lifestyle on all those who are forced to support it with their tax dollars. dollars.

Thank You, Fox News

Posted on 10 April 2011

Thank-you, Fox News. Thank you for reporting the news other networks ignore. Thanks for not condescending to the great unwashed by informing us how we should think on a given subject. Thank-you for not adopting the patronizing, elitist attitudes that have become de rigueur on most other networks. Thank-you for recognizing that Americans have the right to information from both sides of the aisle and are fully capable of making up their own minds on issues, given enough facts. Continue Reading

White Pride

Posted on 10 April 2011

I'm a proud White-Irish-American and I'd like to celebrate my unique culture and heritage. Though I personally had no part in it, my white European ancestors were the ones who founded the greatest country the world has ever known. For all of you progressives out there, I'm referring to America. My white European ancestors then established a framework (hint: the Constitution) that allowed immigrants from all over the world a place where they could be free of tyrannical dictators and oppressive government. Its called America -and it stands for freedom. My ancestors fought and died for it and then offered it to the world. Continue Reading

A French Infantryman’s View of American Soldiers

Posted on 10 April 2011

The US often hears echoes of worldwide hostility against the application of its foreign policy, but seldom are they reached by the voices of people who experience first hand how close we (the French) are to the USA. In spite of contextual political differences and conflicting interests that generate friction, we do share the same fundamental values - and when push comes to shove that is what really counts.

Hey, Obama – You’re Not My Daddy

Posted on 10 April 2011

Obama and his buddies seem intent on treating me as if I am still a child. Not a day goes by that I don't see the image of our dear leader on television imploring me to wash my hands, urging dads to be good dads, and lecturing me on what I can and cannot say. I don't need or want your advice on how to live my life. In fact, I quite resent your blatant patronization and condescension. Continue Reading

If At First You Don’t Succeed, Fail, Fail Again!

Posted on 10 April 2011

Five months after the stimulus bill was passed, we can now say that we’ve witnessed the following under-stimulating results. Payrolls are falling more than forecast, with employers having cut 467,000 jobs in June, following a 322,000-job decline in May. Factory jobs fell by 136,000 after dropping 156,000 in May. < ...> Continue Reading

Color Me Happy

Posted on 10 April 2011

I'm smiling. A grin that just won't quit is plastered on my face because of the stunning upset last night when a, gasp, Republican won the bluest of all Senate seats, thus throwing sand in the gears of the Obama machine's march towards socialism. Republican Scott Brown whipping the pants off Coakley last night is cause for rejoice. Continue Reading

Doing D.C.

Posted on 10 April 2011

If you're one of the unfortunate Americans that live in fly-over country, I have bad news for you. Our nation's capitol is now pretty much off-limits to you. Last week I had business in Washington, D.C. and planned a few extra days to re-acquaint myself with our nation's history. It turned out to be the week from hell. Continue Reading

Do Not Go Gentle into the Post-American Era

Posted on 10 April 2011

When the U.S. was a developing nation, we expended our efforts and capital in developing the infrastructure for industry. But, today, the U.S. is doing the opposite. Increasingly, over the past several decades, our government has been restricting the extraction of natural resources and dismantling the infrastructure for industry. Continue Reading

My Liberal Friend

Posted on 10 April 2011

My liberal friend Pam and I are a perfect example of the class warfare currently being waged in America between the 'haves' and the 'have nots.' Also known as 'the war against the rich,' or, in a nutshell, socialism. Though Pam and I are lifelong friends, we couldn't be more different. Pam is the quintessential liberal, quick to espouse views that show America in a bad light. Sarah Palin is evil, Bush is bad and anyone (like myself) that doesn't base their decisions on feelings is, well, just plain uncompassionate. End of story. I, on the other hand, am a traditional, conservative Christian. Continue Reading

My Destructive Generation

Posted on 10 April 2011

My generation could well be the first generation in American history to leave our country worse off than we found it. I am a member of the baby boomer generation. The generation that came of age in the late sixties during the turbulent times of Woodstock, Watergate and Vietnam. The generation that is now holding the reins of power in most American institutions, from politics to media, to education and culture. The generation that will likely be responsible for squandering America's hard won freedoms and changing America into a third world country, all in the name of 'equality' and 'social justice.'

Daniel Hannan on the American Past and Future

Posted on 10 April 2011

Last week Daniel Hannan, the member of the European Parliament best-known for his scathing dressing-down of Prime Minister Gordon Brown, delivered a lecture at The Heritage Foundation. Hannan articulates American political principles better than most Americans, and warns against chasing a technocratic solution to healthcare or any other problem. Though he underestimates how far America has already walked down the path of rationalism, he is an entertaining speaker who has a penchant for quietly working great political thought into his words (see if you can find the subtle not-quite-quotations of Edmund Burke).

Why I Left California

Posted on 10 April 2011

After living in California for 33 years, I finally decided to leave. I sold my business and my home and relocated to South Carolina. I moved to California when I was 17. Like most of my fellow residents, I was busy living my life. I gave very little thought to politics, assuming that politicians knew best how to run the state. I wasn't even aware of the difference between Republicans and Democrats. I would always vote, but with 20/20 hindsight, I see how my votes were manipulated and influenced by the overwhelmingly liberal media. Continue Reading
