Honorable Manhood

Major General Joshua Chamberlain of the 20th Maine Regiment received the formal surrender of Confederate forces at Appomattox Virginia. Chamberlain himself was wounded six times during the course of the war fighting against Confederate forces. He was so badly wounded at Petersburg that a newspaper wrote his obituary. Chamberlain was a very moral man and he hated slavery. Yet when he looked into the eyes of those proud, ragged, barefoot and gaunt men, he was looking into the eyes of honorable manhood.
  "Before us in proud humiliation stood the embodiment of manhood, men whom neither toil and suffering, nor the fact of death... could bend from their resolve; standing before us now, thin, worn and famished, but erect, with eyes looking level into ours, waking memories that bound us together as no other bond; was not such manhood to be welcomed back into a Union so tested and assured?" Speaking for myself, this is why I honor the Confederate flag.

The Unraveling Of Lyndon Johnson

My good buddy and colleague Kevin Barrett. (Notice that I threw in a little elitist lingo there) stated that Lyndon Johnson, after retiring from the presidency, let himself go physically. He grew his hair long and gained extra pounds before he suffered his fatal heart attack in 1973. His question to me was this. Do you think that Johnson was suffering from depression or was he identifying with the Vietnam protesters? I believe that he was suffering from depression. Johnson's greatest ambition from the earliest age was to be president. As a teenager he would tell others that he was going to be president someday. He had a plan that he followed to the letter and he never diverted from it. His plan was that he would first be elected to the House of Representatives. The second part of his plan was to be elected to the senate and becoming Senate Majority leader. From there he would run for president. He was offered a position in the Roosevelt Administration as the head of his rural e…

Bobby Jindal Tells The Truth About Trump

Bobby Jindal, governor of Louisiana aid the following about Trump today. Donald Trump is a narcissist and an egomaniac. That may sound like a serious charge to make, but it is also something that everyone knows to be true, and he knows it too, and he celebrates it. He told us the other day that he’s likes Kanye West, why? “Because Kanye loves Trump.” He may be an entertaining narcissist, but he is one nonetheless.
  Like all narcissists, Donald Trump is insecure and weak, and afraid of being exposed. And that’s why he is constantly telling us how big and how rich and how great he is, and how insignificant everyone else is. We’ve all met people like Trump, and we know that only a very weak and small person needs to constantly tell us how strong and powerful he is. Donald Trump believes that he is the answer to every question…
The conservative cause deserves more than a power-hungry shark who eats whatever is in front of him…because sooner or later, we will be his next meal.

Judicial Tyranny

Kim Davis is just another victim of our out of control court system. For those who say that she deserves to be in jail or she should just step down from her position I would suggest that she and others should never have been placed in this position to begin with. I learned a long time ago, as a political science minor at M.T.S.U. that there are three branches of government and they are not equal. I would be willing to bet that my professor was a liberal but at least he taught the truth. Most people have been taught that the three branches of government are co-equal. The truth is that the constitution grants the legislature supremacy over the executive and the judiciary. This is why the legislature is mentioned first in Article 1 of the constitution. Article 2 deals with the executive and Article 3, the judicial. The Founders were so afraid of judicial tyranny that many wanted to leave a judicial system out of the Constitution altogether. John Marshall supposedly established judicia…
