  • Employee Rights Act (ERA) Toolkit

    Earlier this year, Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) introduced the Employee Rights Act (H.R. 2723). This legislation would protect workers from union pressure by putting power in the hands of employees and making union leaders more accountable to their members.

    For decades, and especially under the Obama administration, numerous rules that infringe on workers’ rights have been imposed on the American people. This is not only unproductive and wasteful in economic terms —

  • Foxconn’s Hiring and Mooch Is Safe

    Reading Time: 2 minutesYou know it’s coming. Some fake news hack will claim the whole Foxconn-Wisconsin deal was a plot to find a new job for Reince Priebus. Reince Priebus, the erstwhile White House chief of staff who prides himself on blocking deplorables from the White House posts they deserve, has been relieved of duties. He’s on his […]

  • Priebus Over-Under

    Reading Time: 1 minutesI’ll set the over-under on Priebus’s resignation/firing at 10 days (August 6). Pick over or under in the comments. Winners will get great satisfaction. I’m taking under. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Gateway Pundit has it all. It’s juicy! Just yesterday, Washington Times pointed out that the very swampy Priebus is increasingly […]

  • Regarding Jeff Sessions

    Reading Time: 1 minutesI campaigned for and voted for Donald Trump. I stand 100% behind Trump today. I support Trump because he’s a fighter. He’s a man of action. Trump prosecutes his causes, he doesn’t navel gaze. Jeff Sessions is a good man. He’s a good Washington man. He has standards of decorum. Standards I admire. Trump has […]

  • Why You Must See Dunkirk

    Reading Time: 3 minutesWhen Winston Churchill mouthed these eternal words, his nation’s life expectancy was about six months. All of Western Civilization, all of Christiandom, seemed doomed. One defiant man ended a speech to his House of Commons with this: I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the […]

  • Feeling Exposed and Protected

    Reading Time: 4 minutesPeople want cover. Danger drives us together. It’s our nature. Our herding response gave our species an advantage. The herders lived to breed. The wanderers, the stragglers, fell prey. Genes of herders increased. Genes of loners receded. But our strongest cover is our parents. They’re the protection we seek. The pair of humans who brought us […]

  • UPDATE: Kid Rock Winning MI Senate Race

    Reading Time: 1 minutesIf the election were held today, Senator Kid Rock would be a thing. Via The Gateway Pundit: News broke this weekend that Kid Rock is LEADING challenger, Dem Debbie Stabenow in a new poll 30% to 26%! Everyone who wrote this off as a joke, then as a publicity stunt, then as impossible, then as improbable will be […]

  • GOP to America: If you like your Repeal, you can keep your Repeal

    GOP to America: If you like your Repeal, you can keep your Repeal.

    Conservatives to GOP in 2018: If you like your Elected Office, you can keep your Elected Office.

    Occupants of geographic America: If you like your Liberty, you can keep your Liberty.

    The Catch-22 Republic:

    “…And for this reason, I said, money and honour have no attraction for them; good men do not wish to be openly demanding payment for governing and so to get the name of hirelings, nor by secretly helping themselves out of the public revenues to get the name of thieves. And not being ambitious they do not care about honour. Wherefore necessity must be laid upon them, and they must be induced to serve from the fear of punishment. And this, as I imagine, is the reason why the forwardness to take office, instead of waiting to be compelled, has been deemed dishonourable. Now the worst part of the punishment is that he who refuses to rule is liable to be ruled by one who is worse than himself. And the fear of this, as I conceive, induces the good to take office, not because they would, but because they cannot help –not under the idea that they are going to have any benefit or enjoyment themselves, but as a necessity, and because they are not able to commit the task of ruling to any one who is better than themselves, or indeed as good. For there is reason to think that if a city were composed entirely of good men, then to avoid office would be as much an object of contention as to obtain office is at present; then we should have plain proof that the true ruler is not meant by nature to regard his own interest, but that of his subjects; and every one who knew this would choose rather to receive a benefit from another than to have the trouble of conferring one. So far am I from agreeing with Thrasymachus that justice is the interest of the stronger. This latter question need not be further discussed at present; but when Thrasymachus says that the life of the unjust is more advantageous than that of the just, his new statement appears to me to be of a far more serious character. Which of us has spoken truly? And which sort of life, Glaucon, do you prefer?…”

    Which do you prefer?

    What chance do you think there is that you’ll get it?

    Carry on.

  • Free Forever Through Stoicism

    Reading Time: 2 minutes“Some things we can control, some we can’t. We can control our attitudes, opinions, goals and desires – choices of our own. We can’t control health, wealth, fame or power – things we can’t have by choosing them.” —Epictetus Freedom begins with understanding what we control and we do not. Yet very few people even […]

  • Senator Rock: Who’s the Joke? (offensive) VIDEO

    Reading Time: 2 minutesMy serious Republican friends (think of people like Chris Wallace and Charles Krauthammer) worry. They worry about this trend toward “unserious” politicians getting elected. They worry about “what it says about voters” who elect Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, and (very soon) Kid Rock. These serious Republicans long for the days of serious men and serious […]
