Being Conservative Is Confusing
Patrick Kjellberg

As much as I am accused of being conservative, I really don’t know what it means to feel like a conservative. I mean there are so many things I don’t understand.

Free Market Foolishness
Patrick Kjellberg

Free market capitalism, the champion for the conservatives. It’s the notion so dear to the hearts of conservatism – that the free market cures all ills.

Following Thomas Jefferson
Patrick Kjellberg

It seems to me that conservatives are always complaining the tax code is unfair. Apparently, I must have misinterpreted this gesture – thinking conservatives want all things to be fair.

Who gets the credit if death tax is eliminated?
Patrick Kjellberg

Paraphrasing an old adage: if you refuse to ever use an option, it will no longer be an option. Such is the case in modern day politics to the point to what is absolutely nonsensical and at times ridiculous. A prime example is the inheritance tax and the liberals.

Blaming Language for Little Subtleties
Patrick Kjellberg

How could George Orwell be so far ahead of his time? In his 1984 novel – written in 1948 – he created a world with the government, affectionately ladled as “Big Brother,” with cameras in every corner of society to see any action that was contra to the health of the state.

So Much from Subsidies
Patrick Kjellberg

I was watching the ‘fair and balanced’ show the other day and the anchor had a gripe piece about government subsidies. Normally Sean Hannity is making a mountain-out-of-a-mole hill, and I can hear the audience fist pumping and hooting that must be coming from my neighbor’s house.

The Real Culprits
Patrick Kjellberg

Last week New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg accused anti-Wall Street protesters of trying to destroy jobs in the city, even as he said he was sympathetic to some of their complaints.

A Peaceful Solution…
Patrick Kjellberg

Getting through the debt crisis will take 20/20 vision, common sense and a 2020 policy. Right now the president and Congress are having the age old debate of taxing the rich or not taxing the rich.

A Way Out…
Patrick Kjellberg

Getting through the debt crisis will take 20/20 vision, common sense and a 2020 policy. Right now the president and Congress are having the age-old debate of taxing the rich or not taxing the rich.

Enough Blame To Go Around…
Patrick Kjellberg

What do you do when you have no past from which to learn? Well, it might actually be a good position because it would free you from making the same mistakes that were made in the past.

Not In My Backyard
Patrick Kjellberg

It’s my land and I should be able to do what I want with my land! Right? Well, here the right is wrong.
