Thad Cochran’s False Leadership


Webster’s dictionary defines leadership this way:  “The power or ability to lead other people.”  A business dictionary defines it as “establishing a clear vision, sharing that vision with others so that they will follow willingly, providing the information, knowledge and methods to realize that vision.”  Can we honestly say this describes Thad Cochran’s time inContinue reading “Thad Cochran’s False Leadership”

Chris McDaniel: Mr. Fiscal Conservative


With the US Senate race in full swing throughout the state of Mississippi, new charges have emerged from supporters of Thad Cochran in a pathetic and desperate attempt to paint Chris McDaniel as an untrustworthy politician in regards to his fiscal record as a member of the state senate and to attack his “misguided criticismContinue reading “Chris McDaniel: Mr. Fiscal Conservative”

Ranking President Kennedy


Was JFK a great President?  As the nation marked the 50th anniversary of Jack Kennedy’s tragic assassination, new polling shows that many Americans consider him to be among our very best, ranking higher than any President in the last half century according to the latest Gallup survey.  Two years ago, he rated fourth all time,Continue reading “Ranking President Kennedy”

Thad Cochran’s Flaws Not Just Fiscal


In a recent post I exposed Thad’s Cochran’s horrific fiscal record, a legacy of taxing and spending worthy of any good liberal, but sadly that’s not the only flaw he possesses.  His career does not reflect true conservative principles in the areas of national defense, the culture wars, active government, and the environment. It simplyContinue reading “Thad Cochran’s Flaws Not Just Fiscal”

Exposing Thad Cochran’s Real Fiscal Record


No sooner had Senator Chris McDaniel launched his campaign for the United States Senate, a race pitting him against a six-term incumbent, when the defenders of the status quo came to the aging incumbent Thad Cochran’s defense.  One fearless Cochran guardian, Brian Perry from Madison County, recently wrote in the Laurel Leader Call that withoutContinue reading “Exposing Thad Cochran’s Real Fiscal Record”

The Constitution and the Income Tax


Americans love anniversaries and this year marks some pretty remarkable ones, most notably the sesquicentennial of the battle of Gettysburg and the fall of Vicksburg, two events that dealt a crippling blow to the Confederacy in the summer of 1863, and the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination.  But 2013 also marks the centennial ofContinue reading “The Constitution and the Income Tax”

The Democrats’ War on Babies


After years in the political closet, the abortion debate is back in full swing, as Texas passed a restriction on abortion before the 20th week of pregnancy.  The “pro-choice” crowd staged their usual vile protests, complete with used tampons and jars of feces and urine to hurl at pro-life legislators all while shouting “Hail Satan”Continue reading “The Democrats’ War on Babies”

It’s Time for “Rockin’, Sockin’” Politics


Recent political events, particularly with the Senate immigration bill, have only confirmed to me that its long past time we quit playing games and started fighting back against the Left.  Richard Nixon coined the phrase in the 1952 presidential race as Ike’s running mate, telling the party it was time for a “rocking, socking campaign.” Continue reading “It’s Time for “Rockin’, Sockin’” Politics”

The Real Legacy of Gettysburg


This week marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, fought on July 1-3, 1863 in a small Pennsylvania town.  Celebrations began on Sunday and are scheduled to last all week.  Articles and commentary from across the political spectrum will flood the Internet and the airways in praise of those who fell on thatContinue reading “The Real Legacy of Gettysburg”

Prosperity in the Hands of Fools


The richest and wisest man who ever lived, Solomon, counseled us in the Book of Proverbs that “the prosperity of fools will destroy them.” Notice that Solomon did not say prosperity will ruin anyone, but the fool only.  So his wisdom is simple:  If you have wealth, don’t be a fool with it and youContinue reading “Prosperity in the Hands of Fools”
