Gas is Getting “Cheap” Again

Written by Eric Peters on Monday, 14 October 2013. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

The things going on in the economy today don't add up. It's like a giant Jenga tower, and odds are it's getting shakier and shakier.

Gas is Getting “Cheap” Again

In my area (SW Virginia) regular unleaded can now be purchased for less than $3 a gallon. Most people are smiling – the smile of the simple-minded. Or the dazed. Or perhaps, the forgetful. Does no one remember that a mere handful of years ago, gas sold for less than $2 a gallon?

Win Some, Lose Some

For most Americans, it's mostly "lose." The stalemate in Washington won't hurt the politicians, but it will hurt the average American.

Mr. President, Tear Down This Barricade!

Written by Alan Caruba on Friday, 11 October 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

The shut down of the government has revealed the Obama administration for what it truly is: a group of thuggish ideologues with nothing but contempt for the American people.

Mr. President, Tear Down This Barricade!

Ronald Reagan made a lot of history as President, but when he stood before the Brandenburg Gate not far from the Berlin Wall that divided the city and said, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall”, he rocked the foundations of the Soviet empire on June 12, 1987.  By 1989, the wall was opened and, in 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed. 

The Ancient Defenders of a Decrepit Ideology

The cohort of fossils in command of the Senate in both parties is rooted intellectually in a vacuous Utopian fantasy that in their senile minds trumps reality on the ground.

Did you notice that many of the openly pro-amnesty Senators (like John McCain and Mitch McConnell) are really, really old? Now why would that be, do you suppose?

Test Drive: 2014 Infiniti QX80

Written by Eric Peters on Friday, 11 October 2013. Posted in Automotive, Business

The 2014 Infiniti QX80 is a huge traditional SUV. Despite its somewhat quirky looks, this giant truck might just be the best in its class.

Test Drive: 2014 Infiniti QX80

I’ve got five bikes, an old muscle car – and lots of guns. Some people will sneerily say I don’t need these things. They’re the same people who get all upset and control-freaky about large (and loaded) SUVs like the Infiniti QX80. It’s too big. It uses too much gas. It’s ostentatious

Birthdays

Written by Alan Caruba on Friday, 11 October 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Birthdays are a time to reflect on the life one has lived, and the events of the past. With great wisdom, Alan Caruba looks back, and muses upon the fate of the nation in the future.

Birthdays

We mark the days of our lives with birthdays, annual events that have a beginning and an end known only to God. As of October 9th I have 76 of them and that’s a lot, but history has a long perspective.

Want to Pay Less For Insurance?

Written by Eric Peters on Friday, 11 October 2013. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

When the government forces you to pay for something, the provider of that good or service can count on having unlimited "customers." That, in a sense, equals unlimited demand. And that results in unlimited price increases.

Want to Pay Less For Insurance?

Increasingly worthless Federal Funny Money – and increasingly hard-to-find decent-paying jobs – have put an economic choke-hold on millions of Americans, compelling them to cut back on everything that’s not absolutely essential.

The Micah Mandate

Written by Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas on Wednesday, 09 October 2013. Posted in Opinion, Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

The sublime truth is this, any hope of America being restored must necessarily be rooted in humble and holy fear of our gracious Heavenly Father. Biblical faith derives its source in the humble fear of the Living God.

The Micah Mandate

“He hath showed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God” (Micah 6:8).

Levin’s Liberty Amendments Aim To Restore Republic

Written by Terry Duschinski on Wednesday, 09 October 2013. Posted in Books, LifeStyle

The federal government has grown into the leviathan the Founders feared. Author Mark Levin thinks it's time to change that.

Levin’s Liberty Amendments Aim To Restore Republic

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another1, . . . oops, no, wait a minute; Mark Levin’s The Liberty Amendments: Restoring The American Republic, has left me channeling my inner Thomas Jefferson, apparently. 

The Absent Superpower

Written by Alan Caruba on Wednesday, 09 October 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

History teaches that for the majority of the last two thousand years civilization has been beset by vicious rulers and their bloody wars. Things don't seem that much different today.

The Absent Superpower

I have been reading The History of the Renaissance World: From the Rediscovery of Aristotle to the Conquest of Constantinople by Susan Wise Bauer. Minus its notes and index it is 681 pages long and when you include them, it’s 785 pages. It is filled with gore. Between 1100 AD and 1453 AD, in Europe, in Africa, in South America, and in Asia, it is a chronicle of constant warfare, usually accompanied by slaughters that seem gratuitous, but were the normal order of the day.

Government Creates Drug Demand, Then Serves 'Customers'

Written by Donald Hank on Wednesday, 09 October 2013. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Not only is the "War on Drugs" a phony war that does more harm than good, in many ways the secret polices of government are at least partially responsible for both the demand and supply of illicit narcotics.

Change Your Species, Race? Why Not?

Thompson Reuters has taken wishy-washy progressivism to its flaky end in asking employees to choose their sex from nine options.

Change Your Species, Race? Why Not?

File this under, “Oh, for crying out loud.”

There was a time when planning a family was a relatively straightforward process. A young wife might ask her new hubby, “How many children should we have?” To which he might reply, “Let’s just try for one of each.”
