If you earn it, you'll appreciate it

Tebow faces pseudo-political correctness

Despite the fact that in America, 60 to 70 percent of people identify themselves as "Christian" to one degree or another, Christian-bashing seems to be just about as popular a pastime as watching football these days. And when a national football player commits the unpardonable sins of being both pro-life and vociferously, pro-Jesus, you end up with Monday morning pundits who cast ridiculous judgments from on top of their lofty thrones, much like the old Muppet Show characters Statler and Waldorf.

Protesters deserve to be heard

Those who would describe Occupy protests as a "hissy fit" by "a whole army of freeloaders" who "have no interest in just getting to work and doing their part" are missing the point.

Bye-bye to Barney

To listen to the "elite" media you'd think that a renowned statesman was regrettably planning to leave the political scene.

End Oil Protectionism

The politics of the crude exports issue are confused by a lot of irresponsible reporting.

Lessons from Paris

After the tragic shooting at a provocative magazine in Paris last week, I pointed out that given the foreign policy positions of France we must consider blowback as a factor. Those who do not understand blowback made the ridiculous claim that I was excusing the attack or even blaming the victims. Not at all, as I abhor the initiation of force. The police blaming victims when they search for the motive of a criminal.
