Is That All?

by Mike Pyatt

Mike Pyatt

Few may recall the1969 hit song by Peggy Lee, titled, “Is That All There Is?” It charted number 11 on U.S. Singles Pop Chart, earning her a Grammy Award. It recounts the story of one who is disillusioned with the events of life that seemed to be unique. She recounts events of watching her house catch fire, seeing a circus, falling in love for the first time. All ended with “Is that all there is?” After a recital of events she suggested, “Let’s break out the booze and have a ball-if that’s all there is.” She explained that “breathing her last breath,” she may find death disappointing as well. The song was written by the team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, responsible for most of the rock n roll standards of the 60’s. Leiber’s wife, Gabby Rosenberg, was born in Germany, and lived in the Netherlands, and escaped in advance of Nazi occupation. She introduced her song writer husband to the writings of Thomas Mann. It was a lyrical version of despair. read more

Health-Care Ball Gets Dropped

By Bradley Harrington

“You are entitled to something, the politicians say, simply because it exists and you want or need it — period. You are entitled to be given it by the government. Where does the government get it from? What does the government have to do to private citizens — to their individual rights — to their REAL rights — in order to carry out the promise of showering free services on the people?” — Leonard Peikoff, “Health Care is not a Right,” 1993 — read more

China’s Worst Export Is Killing Us!

by Mike Pyatt

President Trump hasn’t relented on targeting China as a recalcitrant culprit unfairly flooding our markets with their products. However, one won’t find the familiar stamp “made in China” on the bottom of this imported plague. In fact this toxic substance most likely crossed our U.S. border courtesy of Mexican drug cartels. It was originally designed to sedate a 15,000 pound elephant. Who in their right mind would voluntarily inject this into their body? In some sections of our country 20 deaths a day occur due to consumption of this substance, according to the Milwaukee Journal. America’s insatiable appetite for drugs drive the demand for this “killing drug.” Some estimates report that the United States consumes nearly 90% of drugs worldwide. read more

Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death

Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775. Speech was given at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia

No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The questing before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings. read more

Handling Wyoming “Education” Crisis

By Bradley Harrington

Brad Harrington

“Mass schooling damages children. We don’t need any more of it. And under the guise that it is the same thing as education, it has been picking our pockets just as Socrates predicted it would thousands of years ago.” — John Taylor Gatto, “Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Education,” 2005 —

The Wyoming State Legislature had a golden opportunity to institute true solutions to our “education” funding crisis this year, but -– in true, typical “mixed-economy,” “welfare-state” fashion, they dropped the ball again: read more
