Coronavirus – The Case For Self-Reliance

If the Coronavirus has taught us anything, it’s the dangers of centralized anything.  No one government, one company or one person should...

Got Privilege?

I’m so tired – so, so, so very tired! I’m tired every time I turn around of being called a “RACIST!” simply because I’m white. I’m tired that I’m told I have a “privileged life” simply because I’m white. I’m tired of hearing only white people are the ones capable of being racist! I’m tired of seeing people attacking police officers, burning building, looting and assaulting others while being told they are “peacefully protesting”. If I say otherwise - “Racist!”

How Flat Does The Curve Have To Be

“Flatten the Curve” and “Slow the Spread” have somehow come to mean “stop death”. The American, Maryland and Frederick County public have been done a huge disservice by the media and elected representatives.

Blue Masks – A Resurgence Of Brown Shirts?

While you were enjoying your Saturday morning, Councilman Kai Hagen (D) has been accused of harassing an innocent man who was shopping while not wearing a face covering.

Why Obama Endorsed Joe Biden

Anyone who doubts that Barack Obama has a sense of humor should take a look at his endorsement of Joe Biden for president of the United States. Really, it’s a skilled performance, and delivered, mirabile dictu, with a straight face. Give it a try. Seriously, go grab a mirror and put on your best sincere expression and say out loud, “Joe Biden would bring ‘leadership guided by knowledge and experience, honesty and humility, empathy and grace’ to the Capital.”

I feel compelled to offer some clarification to Mr. Karl Bickel's "corrections" to my article on Frederick County's 287(g) audit from last week. I...

Who Can We Trust Besides Ourselves?

The World Health Organization (WHO) is aligned with China, was cut out for China. We cannot trust information coming from the WHO. In relying on information received from the WHO, Dr. Fauci admits he didn't realize how transmittable this virus was.

Rush Limbaugh: Champion Of The Average American And Defender Of America’s Founding Principles

Rush Limbaugh began his career as the preeminent voice of conservative values and America’s founding principles in 1984 on local radio in Sacramento, California.  He was the replacement for controversial talk show host Morton Downey, Jr.  His show debuted in mid-October 1984 as the “Rush Limbaugh Program.”

Prayers To Mr. Limbaugh

I was just a 14 year old kid in 1993. That’s when I remember my Aunt Joyce telling my dad (Greg) about the most remarkable man that she had heard on the radio. It was at one of our family get togethers when my grandparents were still living and the family gathered more often. That was the first time anyone spoke to me about Rush Limbaugh.

To Mask Or Not To Mask

I’m over those defending or explaining the need of wearing “face coverings.” Raise your hand if you’ve been the victim of virtue signaling, been yelled at, or gotten the “glare” from some misguided citizen riding a high horse. How many someones have filled your social media stream with accusations of “not caring for others?” I’m done with the attempts at guilting me into compliance with “it’s your social responsibility.”
