The Time Has Come for Reasonable Americans to Stand up and Draw a Line in the Sand

 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the  heaven: - Ecclesiastes 3:1 | by Keith McGivern | Medium

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace

~Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

The time for “live and let live” has drawn to a close, at least temporarily. For too long, the Right has been satisfied to leave their voices to the ballot box. Sometimes the Right has been too satisfied to give their voice to a personality. Both strategies have left the conservative right looking around and wondering how we got to where we are today.

Crews find possible Revolutionary War ship cannons in Savannah River

 Via Jonathan via Wirecutter


Cannons, an anchor and other nautical relics dredged from the depths of the Savannah River last month could be from a British war ship that wreaked havoc during the Revolutionary War and led to the commission of the fledgling country’s first naval vessel.

The Army Corps of Engineers were using a clamshell dredger Feb. 22 as part of a project to expand the depth of Savannah Harbor when they found the artifacts.

War with China? What Fun!

I’d Rather Be Ruled by Brain-Damaged Twelve-Year-Olds

There is no limit to misjudgement. If the psychic curiosities in the Federal bunker start a war with China, or push Beijing into starting one, it will be blamed on a proximate cause, such as a collision of warships after which some lieutenant who joined on waivers lost it and opened fire. After all, historians have to write about something. The causes will actually be deeper and more complex.

To begin, people are cerebrally arranged to form groups–“packs” is a better word—and fight with other groups. This is dimwitted, but so are people. The urge manifests itself in wars, political parties, football, teenage gangs, and contract bridge. It is not rational. In football, armored mercenary felons having no relation to the cities they represent, battle other felons from another city, most of whose citizens would not let their daughters within a parsec of said felons—all this while the fans scream in adrenal murderousness. It is just what we do. At the national level, it is called “patriotism.”

Clarence Thomas Hints That Congress Could Strip Social Media Giants Of First Amendment Protections, Comparing Them To ‘Public Accommodations’

 WASHINGTON - MARCH 13: U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas testifies before the House Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee on Capitol Hill March 13, 2008 in Washington, DC. Thomas and Justice Anthony Kennedy spoke about concerns with the ongoing remodeling of the court building, the reduction of paperwork due to electronic media and the disparity of pay between federal judges and lawyers working in the private sector.

“The Second Circuit feared that then-President Trump cut off speech by using the features that Twitter made available to him. But if the aim is to ensure that speech is not smothered, then the more glaring concern must perforce be the dominant digital platforms themselves. As Twitter made clear, the right to cut off speech lies most powerfully in the hands of private digital platforms. The extent to which that power matters for purposes of the First Amendment and the extent to which that power could lawfully be modified raise interesting and important questions. This petition, unfortunately, affords us no opportunity to confront them,” Thomas concluded.

On Monday, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas seemed to argue that social media companies such as Facebook and Twitter may not be able to hide behind the First Amendment in their attempts to regulate various forms of speech on their platforms.

Most notably, the legendary Justice compared the Big Tech giants to “common carriers” and “public accommodations.”

Oh My: Looks Like Biden DHS Is Admitting Trump Was Right About the Wall

 Via sw44magnumman Brown


The first thing that Joe Biden did when he got into office was try to do away with the border policies of President Donald Trump including stopping the building of the wall that had been such a high priority of the Trump Administration.

Of course, the result then was a flood of illegal aliens into the country now that they knew Biden was doing away with the protections put in place by Trump.

But Biden is now up a creek without a paddle. The border crisis and the numbers are just growing and he doesn’t seem to know how to stop it.

It’s now even caused him to contemplate the unthinkable — implicitly admitting that Trump was right.
