Horry Clap!

The upshot is ...




Nice Rack

Oh My


Culture “Debate” Not Possible

Culture “Debate” Not Possible in America                    

“Is There a Culture War?”  Duh.

I have been in the trenches of fighting against assisted suicide, health care rationing, radical animal rights, anti-human environmentalism, etc. ad nauseam, for more than 20 years.

About five years ago it hit me like a punch: We can no longer debate these issues. Why?  True debate requires a common frame of reference. But we have none.

Not only do we no longer agree on ends, but differ markedly–almost diametrically–on values and basic morality.  How can one “debate” in such a milieu? [NRO]

That's NRO's Wesley J. Smith coming to the same conclusion most of us here have been talking about for the past 8 years (at least). My first warning sign came when I picked my son up at the airport after his first semester at UNLV.  Knowing how much I liked the subject, he told me about his incredible history class!  When we got home he immediately unpacked and gave me his text book.  “A People’s History” (A People’s History of the United States, 1492-Present) by Howard Zinn.  Hadn't heard of him, but assumed he was picking up where my favorite college (The Oxford History of the American Peopleby by Samuel Eliot Morison) history left off in 1965.


It took me less than 5 minutes to have that  notion shattered all to hell. Which y'all by now are aware (Zinn site:  A history book where radical bomb thrower H. Rap. Brown received more (and laudable) mention than Robert. E. Lee (and that defamed Lee for quelling  John Brown's  Harper's Ferry revolt). 

History ala carte.  Written by an active  Communist, and embraced by  increasingly leftist universities establishment. It made Clinton's presidency possible.
For starters.

People who don't love Boehnor

Otherwise, everyone loves him


Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is blaming conservative groups in Washington for turning him into a human pinata to raise money.

In an interview to air on Sunday’s “60 Minutes” on CBS, Boehner said he doesn’t disagree that much with conservatives on policy, but that the groups beat “the dickens out of me” in order to line their own pockets.

“The issue with the Tea Party isn’t one of strategy. It’s not one of different vision,” Boehner said, according to excerpts released by CBS.

“It’s a disagreement over tactics, from time to time. [Full]

No, it's about principles.  What would you call a man who campaigns on issues he knows matter to core Republicans, and post election does the opposite

  • “A month after its incredible victory, the GOP squandered its mandate, surrendering to the Democrats,” he wrote. “The GOP-led House of Representatives did not proclaim its mandate and hold off on major decisions until the Republican majority in the Senate was sworn in. No, they went to the GOP position of preemptive surrender and gave President Obama and the Democrats almost everything they wanted.
  • GOP did nothing to stop Mr. Obama’s executive amnesty.
  • “Mr. Boehner made the obligatory statements about cutting spending and reducing Obamacare. Yet time after time, when the occasion called for him to stand and fight, he chose surrender,”
  • Budget cave-ins galore
He's a liar.
