This site is full of ideas. Some of them might make you cringe. They may not align with your worldview, perspectives, or experiences. That’s a great thing.

Trust conservative consumers

What happened to American corporations that so many insist on bending a knee for vocal American leftists (if you can call someone an American leftist)? When did our companies become so scared of the politically correct? Whenever some leftist group makes noise about some cause or issue, America’s corporate marketing departments go running for their lives. Black Lives Matter, the admitted communist organization, has raised millions of dollars from American corporations. Pride parades across America have companies falling all over themselves trying to get the best sponsorships. Commercial services go out of their way to place as many black,…

Proactively afraid

When I was a teenager, my Dad told me this story one night when he arrived home from work. That morning, his boss arrived at work in his downtown Dallas headquarters to find there was scaffolding along the front of the building. “Why is this scaffolding here?” he asked one of the workers. “Oh, no,” the worker thought, “The President wants the scaffolding gone.” That same day, the President walked out of the building at lunch to find the scaffolding had all been torn down. “Where did the scaffolding go?” he asked a worker. “Oh, no,” the worker thought, “he…

Give people the information they need

Twice in the last week, I found myself in a position where I had information that was not going to be received well by another. In each case, I had to make the decision to either tell them, which would almost certainly make them angry, or hold on to the information and spare them the anger and distraction. In each case, I ended up telling them. Before I told them, I had this very conversation with them. Would you rather I tell you something that is going to anger you, but give you information that will potentially allow you…

“Cisgender,” another word for “normal”

I was just reading about a study from 2018, conducted by two Canadian researchers, who spoke to 1000 “cisgender” people about who they’d be willing to date: options including “cisgender” men, “cisgender” women, trans men, trans women, genderqueer, and any of the other 703,503,243 genders that we’ve invented. According to some lazy (read: Wikipedia) research, the word “cisgender” originated from some research work done in 1991 about transsexuals. One definition from the Dictionary from Oxford Languages states “cisgender” means “denoting or relating to a person whose sense of personal identity and gender corresponds with their birth sex.” In other…

Celebrating death, a Democrat hallmark

Rush Limbaugh sadly passed away yesterday, and predictably, many liberals were out celebrating and dancing on his proverbial grave. There’s nothing about this that wasn’t predictable. Many liberals are quick to celebrate when something truly horrible happens to someone they don’t like. We’ve seen it before. But I’m afraid conservatives are going to miss yet another opportunity to capture and utilize a defining Democrat moment. It’s a tough thing to advocate, because I think the appropriate use of our time right now is to mourn, remember, and celebrate the life of Rush Limbaugh through stories, replays, and highlights from…

This silly notion of electability

Over Valentine’s Day weekend, Mitch McConnell spoke of how he will consider funding Republican Senate candidates during the 2022 mid-term elections. When asked about his willingness to back Trump-endorsed candidates, he indicated he may or may not back them, saying “the only thing I care about is electability.” There’s no such thing as “electability.” It’s a false premise. When one speaks of “electability,” they’re really just saying it’s their opinion that someone is or is not electable. In this case, McConnell is saying he’ll be the final arbiter of who’s electable. I don’t think this gives anyone much comfort,…

Losers dictate when the war is over

I wish I could remember where I read this, but it was two years ago and it has resonated ever since: As long as the loser of the war wants to keep fighting, the war is not over. This is where we are in America right now. Conservatives are the clear losers. They lost the presidency. They lost Congress. Based on the Supreme Court’s decisions to avoid taking on any of the election fraud cases, we’ve lost them, too. However, unlike every other conservative loss I’ve ever witnessed, it appears conservatives are fired up and fighting this time around….
