FROM THE DESK OF THE EXCEPTIONAL CONSERVATIVE

     

     What A Day!  You could easily draw the sword of the pen from its sheath to attack or defend a multitude of topics.  I could easily press my blade against the flesh of Governor Mitt…

The Evolution of a Movement: I Ain't Bringing An "Olive Branch" to St. Louis

 

When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it,

he said unto them, Doth this offend you? ~ John 6:61

 

     Many of you have read my opinions on education, economic, social, faith and governing matters.  I appreciate your words of encouragement, replies of agreement and statements of opposition.  Your sharp sword has only strengthened my…

MISSION CREEP: THE GLAA MARCHES ONWARD IN URBAN EDUCATION PURSUITS

 

War is a most wondrous thing to pursue in the realm of theater.  It is filled with adventure, drama, romance, epic pursuits, political intrigue and thematic resonance.  Who does not like a great battle?  The Egyptians versus the Hittites.  The Greeks versus the Macedonians.  The Romans versus the Goths.   The North versus the South.   Each of these has its overarching themes and racing finishes. Yet, the reality of war is often a clouded refraction of its true realities.  Many a…

Urban Populations Suffer from the Limited Vision of Their Elected Leadership

Let me begin with the end in mind. An ancient Ghanian Proverb proclaims that the poorest person in the world is not one without money but, one without vision. When considering the fates of such major urban cities as New York, Washington, DC, Los Angeles and Detroit, we are exhaustively presented tales of economic demise, education malfeasance, financial unrest and unwarranted governing excess. Food stamp recipients in New…

A neighborly woman wanted to help educate her friend's children on free market principles and most importantly, taking on greater responsibility. She offered to pay the children a tidy sum to paint her fence. The eldest two decided it would work in their favor to unite and do the job themselves. It would take them only half the time and they would be able to take a bigger cut of the financial pie. They began the following morning an hour later than they were expected. They complained about…

The Bush Tax Cuts: Recognizing The Democrat Party's Moral Hazard

One of the most unsettling things in Republican Party history is its involvement in the taxation of American citizens' income. Why would any Republican tamper with another man's wallet? I could see a socialist, Marxist Democrat but certainly not a Republican. I am opposed to anyone taking from my wallet before I receive my pay. The legislated bi-weekly mugging is certainly not appreciated by wife and daughters. It limits their ability to increase consumer confidence at the mall. Albeit, income… Continue

"No Trespassing": A Law That Must Be Disobeyed To Reach The Urban Conservative

Martin and his father stood outside of Lucas Oil Stadium for 2 hours after the Indianapolis Colts season had ended. They were waiting to greet future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning. Martin's father expected merely a wave and a smile from the tired gridiron hero. Martin expected more. The quarterback waved to the fans and continued to walk towards the player's parking lot. Martin's father followed the other fans towards the fans parking lot satisfied that the great champion had merely… Continue
