Conservatism and Liberty – taking another hit

It’s been a busy week legislatively, and it did not turn out well for conservatism or liberty. First, the Senate Education Committee considered a bill that would require students to use the bathroom of their gender, and not what gender they decided to call themselves. In a surprising move, the committee killed the bill. It’s likely that the defeat was heavily influenced by a statement Lt. Gov. Randy McNally made last week. He said the bill was no longer needed in light of the federal government’s recent action.  Killing the bill highlights the short-sightedness of many legislators. His statement and republicans on the committee killing the measure assume that the proponents of debauchery will give up pushing their deviant agenda. And, they...

State History

State History

There’s a lot of state history not taught to our youth. You’ve probably heard of the Battle of Athens, but only from folks who wanted to share the story. Here’s another piece of history not taught to our kids. But both events are in Tennessee’s Blue Book ( this story on page 42), the book that also contains our state Constitution. So the question is, why is this history good enough for the Blue Book, but not good enough to be taught in school ? ____________________________________________________ Another clash between community practices and the forces of modernity took place in 1908 at Reelfoot Lake in the northwest corner of the state. The lake, an exceptionally rich fishery and game habitat, had for many years supported local fishermen...

It’s a New Day in America!

It’s a New Day in America!

There are so many good things to say about today’s peaceful transition of power. There’s no way I can list all of them. But hopefully, I can sum it up by saying that Marxism has been rejected by the American people, and hope for constitutional governance has once again been embraced. It just doesn’t get any better’n that. The mood of today is a complete contrast to when the Marxist was sworn in. Eight years ago, there were tears of despair and fear. Today, those same people from eight years ago have tears of joy and hope.  May God give our new president the wisdom needed to see this nation back to the values that built this great nation. As destructive as Obama has been to this nation, I must say that he has done one great thing: He is...

RINOs!!! What are they doing – again? Nothing of substance

RINOs!!!  What are they doing – again?  Nothing of substance

I think we’re getting a good idea of what changes we’ll see in Washington with a completely republican controlled federal government.  Not much, I’m afraid. Shortly after Trump’s victory, certain prominent republican senators stated that repealing ObamaCare will take years. The logic is, in short, it’s so embedded now that to repeal it without harming the minority of citizens who benefited from it makes repealing ObamaCare very difficult, especially if there’s not a federal program to replace it. Translation: We really have no desire or intention to repeal ObamaCare. Ramming federal programs down the throats of an unwilling public is a piece of cake for us, but getting rid of a federal program once it’s in place takes an...
