Rob Sherman is an atheist. Any time he sees a reference to religion, mostly the Christian religion, he springs into action. This time his action is directed against the city of Zion, Ill., for using a banned version of the city seal that displays the design Zion’s evangelical founder selected,

Oil: What I Would Do if I were President

In 2007, the House of Representatives passed a $16 billion increase in taxes on oil companies. Actually, this is a lie. Oil companies, like every company in America, see taxes as the cost of doing business. Any tax increase will be passed onto consumers. If the voting public supports this

Protesting Ice Cream is Not Where the Action Is

The folks at Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream have come up with a new flavor — “Schweddy Balls” — that’s an “ode to a classic ‘Saturday Night Live’ sketch comedy” routine. A conservative group is calling for a boycott of the company. “The vulgar new flavor has turned something as

Getting a Heterosexual’s Mind Right

Expressing your opinion about controversial issues can get you in big trouble. Fourteen year old Dakota Ary from Ft. Worth, Texas, learned this the hard way.

Texas Textbook Wars

With Rick Perry in the race for the presidency, you can be sure that liberals are going to bring up the Texas textbook wars. For nearly 40 years, Texas has been fighting yearly battles over textbooks for the simple reason that the choices Texas makes, the nation makes. The decision

Liberal Says: “It’s not ‘class warfare,’ it’s Christianity”

I was wondering when liberals were going to bring Jesus into the discussion about taxing the rich. Christians are labeled ‘theocrats’ and ‘dominionists’ when they quote the Bible, but when a liberal appeals to Jesus she’s being compassionate. The latest is an article written by Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite who is

It’s Not ‘Class Warfare,’ It’s ‘Mass Warfare’

Liberals believe that if the rich are taxed, all will be right with the world, that only the rich will be affected, and since they have so much money, they won’t miss it. When the rich are taxed, everybody is affected in a negative way. Investments drop, building is curtailed,

The Necessary Limits of Government

Jurisdictional separation deals with the legitimate and limited boundaries of authority. A person who owns a piece of property has jurisdiction over his own property, but he does not have jurisdiction over someone else’s property. A property owner can only “speak the law” (juris = law + diction = speak)

Secular Religious Ideology Gone Mad

The media are obsessed with a candidates religion. Anyone who believes in God is a theocrat heaven-bent on “dominion.” Anyone who is familiar with the history of America knows that religion played a major role. Some bad, but mostly good. We often forget that secularism and liberalism are religions with

Don’t Tax the Rich . . . Thank Them

The rich often get a bum rap. Liberals are incensed when it is suggested that “the rich” get any type of tax reduction even though the top 50% of wage earners pay 96% of all income taxes. Since they spend more money, the rich also pay a disproportionate amount in

If you or your business promotes a belief that marriage is defined as a man and a woman and not two men or two women, you will be investigated by groups like the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) and the newly formed All Out. Here’s the latest Gaystapo

“The Tenth Amendment is a Bunch of Baloney”

MSNBC’s David Shuster insists the “general welfare” clause in Article 1 of the Constitution “unambiguously authorizes” social welfare spending like “social security, Medicare, veterans’ care, etc.” Yeah, right. This is the same guy who claims “the Tenth Amendment is a bunch of baloney.” You can hear Shuster’s constitutional expertise here.

The Thief-in-Chief

President Obama is calling for more tax hikes for the “rich.” This is the same president who took an oath to uphold the Constitution. While President Obama might be envious of the rich and despise the rich, he has no constitutional authority to rob the rich. If he wants to

A Conservative’s Very Bad Idea

The article “Conservatism that Assures the Unthinkable: the Reelection of Barack Obama,” by Chuck Rogér, that appeared on the American Thinker website caught my attention: As America flirts with permanent economic decline, certain GOP presidential contenders talk of gay marriage, Charles Darwin, and religiosity.  Are we losing our minds? While

John Lennon: Republican? Theist? Anti-Evolutionist?

Former theist and now self-avowed atheist Dan Barker, who is co-president of the Freedom of Religion Foundation, promoted a “Beware of Dogma” campaign using billboards that also included the line “Imagine No Religion,” borrowed from John Lennon’s atheist national anthem “Imagine.” I wonder if the FRF’s call for everyone to

‘Obama’s Third World America’

In a Washington Times editorial titled “Obama’s Third World America,” this statement caught my attention: “On a campaign fundraising trip to Chicago, Mr. Obama quipped that under the proposed Republican budget plan, ‘we would be a nation of potholes, and our airports would be worse than places that we thought
