Mark Steyn had some thoughts the other day on the SSM ruling specifically and on the role of these decisions on the future in general. They’re good thoughts, as usual, and should be heeded. Last week, I swung by the Bill Bennett show to chew over the news of the hour. A few minutes before […]

Courage: The Mother of the Virtues

Tocqueville wrote this: There are countries in Europe where the native considers himself as a kind of settler, indifferent to the fate of the spot which he inhabits. The greatest changes are effected there without his concurrence, and (unless chance may have apprised him of the event) without his knowledge; nay, more, the condition of […]

Bring Me Men

It’s been a bit more than a week since we celebrated the 4th of July in our usual bombastic style. I find it fitting that we celebrate like a bunch of kids, we are still a very young nation. Still we are in our young adulthood, and most of the time, we probably should act […]

Take Control of the Debate.

As we move into July, with the dreadful baggage of June behind us, I find myself in a reflective mood.

The day after that, I followed a comment on that, […]

Conservative Comedy 6/26/15

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative where I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. According to Chief Justice John Roberts, “Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them. If at all possible, we must interpret the act in a way that is consistent with the former, and avoids the latter.” So Roberts is again violating his duties by ruling on what he believes the intent was when one political party unilaterally passed an act they hadn’t bothered to read. And in coming to his conclusion, Roberts has had to ignore Jonathan Gruber’s plainspoken admissions that the Act was written to deliberately punish states which did not establish their own healthcare exchanges. The “pertinent statutory phrase” was clear, deliberate, and the exact opposite of what Roberts is now saying. But the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change  takes it a step further. The Affordable Care Act was written to destroy health insurance markets, so that when the full implementation of Obamacare fails (as it is already doing), no market solution will […]
