Is conservative talk radio on the way out?

After nearly 30 years of rapid growth that saved the sagging AM radio format the question is being seriously asked: is conservative talk radio as we know it on the way out?

Rebel Flag the Ultimate Dog Whistle

Since its reintroduction on the grounds of the South Carolina Capitol in 1961 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, the Confederate flag has been the source of controversy with a regularity approaching that of a Madonna comeback album. Sadly, it has been thrust into the news once more because some kid who loved it went crazy and committed an atrocity. A racially charged atrocity. Yes. Again.

Political Correctness and the Confederate Flag

More and more people want the Confederate flag gone immediately. Before getting too hasty, though, some things must be considered.

I salute America

I salute...the editor of a colonial newspaper who shut down his paper rather than pay the Stamp Act tax of 1765; his last edition proclaimed liberty as "the greatest blessing human beings can enjoy"and taxation without representation as being "fettered with the chains of inimical servitude."

Obamacare Ruling is a Conservative Win

The dream of Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney has now been realized. Their solution-their idea for universal health care has been passed by both houses, signed by the president and upheld twice now by the Supreme Court. Yes, they call it Obamacare. Yes, they strangely call it socialism. But yes, it was their idea.

Salon's 'Big Lie' About Guns and Mental Illness

I'm strongly in favor of keeping the mentally ill away from firearms and I'm coming around to approving any policy that keeps crazy 'journalists' away from a keyboard, too. Case in point is Salon.com writer Arthur Chu. His rant titled "It's not about mental illness: The big lie that always follows mass shootings by white males" makes Alex Jones sound like Dr. Phil.

Why Spy on France?

According to WikiLeaks, the United States National Security Agency spied on French presidents Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Hollande, reports Reuters. I contacted my French informant, Pierre Le Paint, to learn why.

A Ray of Hope in the Confederacy of Dunces

In the annals of political flip flops - or "evolutions," if you prefer - none have arguably rivaled the breathtaking triple back flip executed late Monday by the governor of South Carolina.

Champions for Life

Donor support from the "Hometown Team" made fielding champions more than a possibility. A string of Kansas State American Legions titles and regional appearances would springboard the Argonne Rebels Drum and Bugle Corps onto the national stage. Taking the field with the nation's best quickly advanced the understanding that the youth from a rural community in Central Kansas could compete with - and conquer – champions from every corner.

California’s Water Woes Hit Home

Pundits sizing up the drought have said that water is the new oil. They're wrong, of course. Oil supplies merely send nations to war, while the water shortage pits neighbors against each other.

Time for the South to Surrender

Reasonable people have suggested that removing Confederate flags from capitols, symbols from license plates, and products from Walmart shelves is mere symbolism, but it's more than that. By recognizing that flying the Confederate flag is a continuation of a treasonous act motivated by racial hatred, we can end what amounts to a 150-year-long Civil War re-enactment and move the South into what Abraham Lincoln called its "proper practical relation" to the rest of the county.

Whatever Happened to Common Sense Regarding Climate Change?

Fear mongering is quite lucrative in what seems to be a burgeoning "climate change industrial complex," where certain people benefit monetarily or politically in their promotion of global catastrophic risk due to catastrophic global warming.

Time to Reconsider Going to College?

The American economy has supposedly long since recovered from the Great Recession. The stock market is doing exceptionally well and unemployment isn't what it once was.
