The Boston Massacre and the Constitution


A little more than 243 years after the Boston Massacre of 1770, the city of Boston faced another violent incident, this time carried out, not by a foreign army, but by two fanatical immigrant Muslims, in an apparent sleeper cell, upset about the American wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.   They, like many of their radicalContinue reading “The Boston Massacre and the Constitution”

Yes, the Problem is Immigration


With the recent terrorist attack in Boston, our distinguished leaders in Washington should finally learn a simple but vital lesson.  The main problem with Islamic terrorism in the United States is not internal security but immigration.

Analyzing the Travesty of Election Day 2012


Along with many in the Republican Party and the conservative movement, I was profoundly shocked at the loss Mitt Romney suffered at the hands of Barack Obama, a weak president with a pathetic record.  But perhaps I shouldn’t have been surprised since we had a weak and pathetic candidate ourselves, but I held out hopeContinue reading “Analyzing the Travesty of Election Day 2012”

Why do Americans have to learn the hard way?


It seems we never learn. Every now and then, the American people hand some poor soul, undeserving in many cases, the national levers of power.  And in each and every instance, it has cost us dearly.  There are several historical periods of note.
