In the past three months I’ve learned a lot about opinion writing.  I’ve learned first and foremost that having an opinion and being able to write about it coherently are two entirely different things.  I’ve learned that it’s easy to piss off your readers and not so easy to get them to think, hmm, I […]

Are this month’s lowered jobless reports really anything to celebrate?  So unemployment has made .2% dip, down to 10%.  This is still the highest jobless rate in the last 26 years.  And lets also consider that the jobless rate doesn’t give an accurate picture of how many people are unemployed; those numbers only cover the […]

In a world where married Senators trying to solicit sex in airport bathrooms and meeting up with girlfriends in foreign locals seems to be the norm, I understand Max Baucus’ feeling inclination towards airing his dirty laundry.  But unlike some others, the Montana Democrat didn’t do anything wrong. So he nominated his girlfriend for a […]

In combat, by friendly fire, or a stress-related tragedy at home we cannot afford to loose any more soldiers to wars we cannot win, weather those wars are real or in the minds of our physically and emotionally overtaxed men and women serving at home and abroad.  While we remember our Veterans this week, let […]

 Sometimes Rush Limbaugh should just keep his mouth shut.  As usual  he was all over Obama’s trip to Dover Air Force base to view the bodies  off fallen soldiers coming back Afghanistan this weekend.  For once  he should be able to look past his drama-queen leanings towards  starting controversy where it doesn’t exist and just […]

 Last week, the Coalition of Reason bought advertising space on the New York City subway  to promote a lifestyle of godlessness.  And I don’t mean that in a bad way – just the idea that  its okay not to believe in God.  Meanwhile there are a plethora of Christians who find  this idea offensive and have […]

Yesterday, US Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr., issued a memorandum to the 14 states with medical    marijuana laws under their jurisdiction, stating that the government will not prosecute users and    distributors on the Federal level.  Weather the reason for this is because the Feds have more pressing  issues at stake, or this is […]
