Another “Crisis” not Gone to Waste

By Bradley Harrington250_brad_harrington_blogspot

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste… It’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.” — Rahm Emanuel, “Wall Street Journal CEO Council meeting,” 2008

For those of you who’ve been keeping up on the election “protest” stories, it would be very difficult indeed to paint a more vividly appropriate picture of a society and culture — ours — more in the middle of experiencing its own disintegration.

And if you think that such a sweeping statement is a little too “alarmist” for your tastes, consider: read more

I Feel. Therefore I Might Be!

by Mike Pyatt

“Cogito ergo sum,” is a Latin philosophical proposition by French philosopher, Rene Descartes, usually translated into English as “I think, therefore I am.” This proposition became a fundamental element of Western philosophy, circa 1644, as it appeared in Latin, in his Principles of Philosophy. Translated in French, “je pense, donc je suis,“ he asserted that the very act of doubting one’s existence served, at a minimum, as proof of one’s own mind. In a similar vein, the Scripture posited, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” The former is a existential validation of self. The latter’s a validation of internal authenticity. It doesn’t mean if you’re a rotund five-foot tall white male, but “feel” you’re a six-foot five, svelte female from Senegal, that its fact, or entitles one to special privilege-except the loony bin. read more

Cody’s Controversial Curriculum Challenged

Sadly, in Park County, Wyoming, another teen has taken his life. Teen suicide is the second leading cause of death in Wyoming’s youth, a suicide rate twice the national average, according to the Wyoming Department of Health Report on Suicide, 2012. What are the causes? Do young people today have a positive and hopeful outlook on their future? We must examine not just the cause, but the major influence on their hearts and minds. Not merely the scabrous entertainment they are drawn to, but that which they read and absorb in school. read more

Grousing about Ravens

by Maury JonesMauryJones

When I was a kid, we were so poor that sometimes for Sunday dinner we would have Sage Grouse Shadow soup. Some neighbor had killed a sage grouse, but before cooking would loan it to us. We hung the grouse above boiling water so its shadow was in the pot. We would boil it, then return the grouse to its owner. The soup was delicious.

There is a big controversy going on right now about Greater Sage Grouse management. Some want to list them as a threatened species, ostensibly because rural development and oil and gas drilling is destroying their habitat. Recently Governor Mead wrote an article for publication which says Wyoming sage grouse are in good condition, are fairly numerous, and certainly not in need of ESA listing as ‘threatened’. If listed, many multiple-use restrictions will be imposed on our public lands. This will impact off-roading, hunting, camping, trail riding, agriculture uses, and your right to clear that sagebrush off your vacant lot. read more

Communist Goals Check Sheet

The attached chart (PDF format) is the Communist Goals that was entered into the Congressional record by Albert Herlong, Jr. (D) (a Floridian who served in Congress from 1949-69) in 1963.

The chart is laid out so you can check off those items that have already been accomplished. Print out several copies and share with friends and family, then compare. Then ask yourselves, “what direction is America pointing?”, “is America still a free country?” and “what are you going to do about it?”
