Eric’s on the Job

Eric Holder, the man who brought us Fast and Furious and the continuing Benghazi cover-up, issues a stern warning to Americans in the aftermath of the Boston Massacre: "Attorney General Eric Holder declared Monday that the Justice Department is on the lookout for acts of violence or discrimination that signal a backlash to the Boston […]

April 22, 2000

Luis sent me this essay on the Elian kidnapping and subsequent march on Calle Ocho. It was so perfect and heartfelt for the sad anniversary of that black day thirteen years ago that I asked for his permission to publish it. I think you will cry and feel a little pride in who and why […]

“Government Has Until Monday to Come Clean, or The Blaze Will Expose.” – Glenn Beck Declares War

An Indiscriminate Act of Human Decency

Maybe there is hope for us after all.

En el Tronco de un Árbol

Forty-five years ago. April 3rd. A young family boarded a plane in Varadero. Tired, hungry, scared, they walked the tarmac in a huddle. Tears fell, but no one looked back. Forty-five years ago. April 3rd. A lifetime, and then some. The Gonzalez family has grown, but we've never lost hope that our feet will once […]

Rise of the Collective – Your Kids Will be Our Kids

“We have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to their communities.” Resistance is futile.

Sultan Knish – Shadow of the Gun

If you take ten minutes to read one OpEd today, this is the one worth reading. Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) is dead-on, and this article is brilliant. "To believe that there is no such thing as constructive violence is to reject free will. Without accepting the necessity of constructive violence, there is no good and […]

We Have Met the Enemy…

Why am I not surprised? MSNBC unquestionably has the largest liberal viewer base of all news networks, and 78% of their viewers think that "targeted killings of American citizens on U.S. soil" is OK. These are probably the same morons who agree with the ACLU when it argues that terrorists should be tried in U.S. […]

When I’m Sixty-Four

Give me your answer, fill in a form Mine for evermore Will you still need me, will you still feed me, When I'm sixty-four? Need me? Possibly. Feed me? Perhaps. Medicate me? Probably not. They called Sarah Palin a liar because she spoke of death panels, in fact, the death panels topic was labeled "The […]

Black Flag

For Andrew I have writer's block. It's not that I can't find stuff to write about, but rather that everything that I write ends up in the recycle bin when I proof it. It ends up there not because it lacks substance or the delivery is less than what I set up as a standard […]

Attack of the Killer (Mexican) Tomatoes

The Obama administration has averted a war. The New York Times reporting: The United States and Mexico have reached a tentative agreement on cross-border trade in tomatoes, narrowly averting a trade war that threatened to engulf a swath of American businesses. The agreement, reached late Saturday, raises the minimum sales price for Mexican tomatoes in […]

Why do we need guns?

Because history tends to repeat itself, and we need to be ready for it when it does.

Daniel Pipes on the Hagel Nomination

From Lion's Den, Daniel Pipe's blog: Chuck Hagel at Defense? Three thoughts as the U.S. Senate gears up to consider on Jan 31 the nomination of Chuck Hagel for the position of secretary of defense: It's more than a bit curious that Barack Obama should nominate a politician of no distinction, with no significant bills […]

Occupy Wall Street Populated by the 1%

This is rich. According to a new study from sociologists at the City University of New York, more than a third of activists in the Occupy movement in New York City had household incomes above $100,000, placing them at the cusp of the top quintile of income distribution in America. Researchers surveyed 729 people who […]
