Free speech vs. the anti-Trump Fascists

To the surprise and relief of 60 million Americans, the election of Donald Trump reassured us that power can still be peacefully transferred in this country. Stodgy squares that we are, some of us still insist on following rules, laws, the Constitution, the slow and painful process of legal reform that can only be enacted...

Released from the suffocation of Political Correctness:Not so much “an eagle soaring over prison walls…as a dump truck that…has smashed our prison gate off its hinges”

“A Trump presidency was not how most conservatives imagined we would escape the soft-totalitarianism of our PC jail. I imagined the liberation movement as an eagle soaring over prison walls. Trump’s populist insurrection, as it happens, is a dump truck that has smashed our prison gate off its hinges.” What is this sudden gust...

Rocky Marciano was the only heavyweight champion who never lost a single fight in his whole career-- and, at the time, he seemed the least likely fighter to do that. In many a boxing match, he was battered, bruised and bleeding. One of the reasons Marciano took so much punishment in the...

California is leading the way, but what is happening in California is happening elsewhere-- and is a slow poison that is being largely ignored. Professor Hanson...

August 18, 2010
By

"We the people" are the central concern of the Constitution, as well as its opening words, since it is a Constitution for a self-governing nation. But "we the people" are treated as an obstacle to circumvent by the current administration in Washington.

Dismantling the Constitution

August 17, 2010
By

"We the people" are the familiar opening words of the Constitution of the United States-- the framework for a self-governing people, free from the arbitrary edicts of rulers.
