Every generation needs heroes. However the elevation of Nelson Mandela to sainthood by an adoring world is not only wrong, it is a slap in the face to all those who suffered irreparable loss directly by his hands or by the hands of African National Congress/South African Communist Party mobs.
Mandela denied any involvement in the Soviet-backed SACP, which is tantamount to denying that his hands were not part of his body. There are numerous pictures of Mandela by the side of SACP leader Joe Slovo underneath the hammer and sickle, hands raised, giving the communist clinched-fist salute http:/theconservativemonster.com/?
Mandela was one of the people who helped transform the ANC from an organization dedicated to bringing about reform through peaceful political means into one committed to the violent overthrow of the government.
Mandela was charismatic and adept at political expediency, often doing what was right, but often doing what most certainly was wrong. Read the rest of this entry »
In the military, “D-Day” is the coded designation of an important invasion or military operation. The term also has been used to mark the timing for a landmark event or decision.
Such a day is coming for a homeschooling family, the Romeikes, who fled religious persecution in Germany five years ago and are fighting to remain in this country. It is also a D-Day for the protection of individual rights of every U.S. citizen
The clock now is ticking for the Romeikes and for the Obama Administration which has been ordered by the U.S. Supreme Court to respond to a petition by the Home School Legal Defense Association to hear an appeal in the Romeikes’ deportation case. The deadline is December 19. Read the rest of this entry »
The holiday table is prepared for the annual feast. There is turkey, stuffing, hot rolls and pumpkin pie, but something is missing.
The holiday spirit has taken a dive. The abundance of food on the table is in sharp contrast to the condition of our country. We are in debt up to our eyeballs to the communist Chinese. The economy is stagnant and there is no relief in sight. Unemployment is high along with the price of energy and every other necessity. The promised health care reform has proved to be a sham, leaving us worse off than before.
The once powerful United States of America has become a paper tiger in the eyes of the world. We are no longer respected, admired or feared. What is to become of us?
Despair and uncertainty has griped the nation. Not since Jimmy Carter, in 1979, has the country suffered such malaise. As we prepare to celebrate with family and friends, we are searching for something, anything, to lift us out of this downward spiral. Read the rest of this entry »
In the 2000 comedy, “What Women Want,” Helen Hunt sent Mel Gibson home with a basket of feminine products to try in an effort to gain insight on how to design a successful ad campaign.
Makes sense: The hand that rocks the cradle still rules the world.
The fairer sex does not hold a majority in Congress. We do not hold the majority of seats in the boardrooms of this country but, make no mistake, we control finance. It is well understood that women balance most of the checkbooks and buy most of the products sold in this country. We also influence elections.
That’s why political operatives stay up late into the night trying to figure us out. Unfortunately, most are sidetracked by a known-it-all group of angry feminists who claim to speak for the rest of us. Read the rest of this entry »
Jay Leno is a car aficionado. He collects them. He knows them. He works on them and delights in driving them.
However, Friday night the junior senator from Texas gave the late night comic a lesson on one option he may have missed, Cruz control.
I am a big Leno fan. I’m rarely up that late but I tape his shows and watch his opening monologue the next night for laughs.
His political jokes are sometimes over the top, but, for the most part, they accurately reflect what is going on in Washington and give us some much-needed comedy relief. His barbs are often cleaver and insightful.
Another thing I appreciate about Leno is that he picks on everyone, Democrats, Republicans and Libertarians. It makes no difference. Read the rest of this entry »
