The truth about playing the ‘liar’ card

By |December 16th, 2012|

(‘76 Contributor) Believing a free press to be a vital safeguard of liberty, Thomas Jefferson said, “Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government.” Many believe the inverse of Jefferson’s maxim — the people are uninformed, and therefore the government can’t be trusted. After all, what well-informed American would knowingly allow politicians to lead us to the monumental economic and budgetary “cliffs” we face? […]

Head On TV whimsically looks back at 2012, ahead to 2013

By |December 16th, 2012|

As 2012 departs with undeserved job security for Buffs’ top brass, says John Andrews in the December round of Head On TV debates, 2013 may come in with bungee cords as Congress’s consolation prize to Americans headed over the fiscal cliff. Secretary of State Scott Gessler’s letter to Santa, adds Susan Barnes-Gelt, should request a new ethical compass — and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar’s secret wish for the New Year may be a 2014 run for governor.

Americans must take Geert Wilders’ warning seriously

By |November 26th, 2012|

Editor’s Note: Researcher and analyst Bill Coates, writing from western Colorado, responded to the recent Geert Wilders essay in Centennial Review, “Marked for Death Because I Dared to Criticize Islam” (November 2012), with the following commentary keyed to Wilders’ warning, “My American friends, make no mistake. Islam is also coming for America.” […]

Sex Sells… the Presidency?

By |October 27th, 2012|

Sex is used to peddle all kinds of things from sport cars to perfume; and for the first time in its 223 year history, it’s being used overtly to sell a candidate for presidency. The Obama Campaign’s new ad likening voting to losing one’s virginity is the latest foray in a campaign aimed below the belt. […]

Gallup Poll Shows War-on-Women Strategy Not Working

By |October 24th, 2012|

During this election season, the Left’s appeals to me as a woman have been below the belt. Literally. The Colorado Democratic Party has sent me three mailers in the past few weeks about birth control. I have yet to receive anything that appeals to my heart, mind or spirit. I’ve been checking the mailbox but thus far no mail on my role as a small businesswoman, as a community volunteer, as a taxpayer, as a citizen, as a grad student, or even as a dog owner. Sadly, there’s been no appeal north of the belly button. […]

Last Debate Reveals Candidates’ Character

By |October 24th, 2012|

Monday night I commented on Facebook that I thought Governor Romney had won the debate. Six women I knew immediately hit “like.” My mind flashed to the often replayed comment by Obama Spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter that women are “not really concerned about what’s happened over the last four years, they really want to know what’s going to happen in the next four years.” Although male friends later joined the chorus, the impression stuck with me; the women I know care very much about what has happened over the past four years and jumped at the chance to voice it. […]

‘Central planning’ blazoned across grinning Joe’s forehead

By |October 12th, 2012|

(‘76 Contributor) Never before have I realized that a face can be so revealing. In watching the vice-presidential debate, Joe Biden’s face said it all. It smacked of rudeness, disrespect, condescension, impatience, and somewhat juvenile. These are traits of people who believe they are above others, know it all, have all of the answers, and think that theirs is the only way.

The words “central planning” should have been tattooed across his forehead. […]

Think again: America must revive ‘peace through strength’

By |September 27th, 2012|

(‘76 Contributor) American revolutionary Patrick Henry famously declared, “Give me liberty or give me death!” This month, furious mobs throughout the Islamic world decree death, a sentence they imposed on four Americans in Libya, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens — the first U.S. ambassador murdered in the line of duty since 1979. Before buying the spin that the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was a spontaneous response to an anti-Islam video, Think Again. […]

Sex is no big deal? Don’t you believe it

By |September 18th, 2012|

(CCU Student) One of the touchiest, most tip-toed-around issues today is the choice of abstinence until marriage. As the world becomes more tolerant and even encouraging of promiscuous behavior, many Christians are hard-pressed to remain strong in their stand of remaining pure until their wedding night. And then beyond that, there is the challenge to stay faithful throughout their marriage. […]
