American exceptionalism

We are exceptional and it is the successful record of assimilation that has made us so. All we have to do is keep up the Balkanization of America that the grievance industry seems to be pushing and our exceptionalism will soon be a thing of the past.

Will there be a Memorial Day in 2025?

Memorial Day, 2015—a day we honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in fighting "for our freedoms and liberties." And we think that is good. It is right that we do so. But on this Memorial Day we think there is another thought that we should be considering and that is: The attitude of a growing number of Americans that is not positive toward the military—not those who serve, so much as the institution of The Military, and particularly what its mission is becoming....more >>

Each of us--every American--should be supporting this man

Our government is a greater threat to our liberties than all the terrorists in the world.

Where are our senators, Burr and Tillis? What is there that Rand Paul is advocating that they cannot support? Every American should know this and be support Sen. Paul. Consider:
I don't know whether Rand Paul's ongoing Senate talkfest will succeed in running out the clock on the Patriot Act, or (as he is seeking) opening up a debate and amendment process, but I do know that—just like his 2013 exercise—these have been some of the most invigorating hours on C-SPAN in recent memory....more >>

Southern Reflections

Inept or uncommitted

Is it any wonder that voters are leaving the Republican Party and registering as independents? In North Carolina, an independent must register as "unaffiliated" .Now that the GOP holds sizable majorities both in Washington and North Carolina, we must ask," why can't they govern? Have they lost their way? Is the lure of the Establishment so enticing that they have abandoned their conservative principles? Is it ineptness or a loss of commitment? Many of us recoil as the GOP endorses and promotes crony capitalism, taking the you-scratch my back-and I'll scratch yours" to new highs....more >>

Can you imagine it ever being appropriate to shoot someone in the back?

Fayetteville shooting of a fleeing suspect by an officer will be an interesting case

Can you imagine a justification for anyone shooting someone else in the back two times as he was running ways from the shooter? Well, a police expect can. And it is explained by Paul Woolverton, writing for the Fayetteville Observer:
A former police chief who teaches at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York thinks a Fayetteville police officer acted appropriately when he shot and killed Nijza Lamar Hagans in January 2013....more >>

Dr. Thomas Sowell: The inconvenient truth about ghetto communities' social breakdown

The following should be required ready, with a test, by every politician in America. And perhaps for every voter before they can ever vote again. "Among the many painful ironies in the current racial turmoil is that communities scattered across the country were disrupted by riots and looting because of the demonstrable lie that Michael Brown was shot in the back by a white policeman in Missouri — but there was not nearly as much turmoil created by the demonstrable fact that a fleeing black man was shot dead by a white policeman in South Carolina."...more >>
