Liberal in tolerance but
Alt-right in protecting freedom of thought and speech.

Ideologues Don’t Usually Like Questions!

I read a rather interesting article the other day about the state of Australian politics, the key point to which was that society has shifted over recent decades from being predominantly just left or right of center, to more extreme points on the scale. This would explain why there was such a reaction to Donald Trump’s election. People are becoming extremists.

One Man’s Heritage! The Struggle to Survive

This article was first published a few years ago on the old kingscalendar website under the title The Tale of the City Blacksmith.

Given the new American President’s desire to actually cause the USA to prosper, and given the number of calls for breaking the regulatory strangle hold that some political bodies have on business and the community, I thought it might be worthwhile republishing this litte tale.

The Renewed Drive to Exit the United Nations

Alabama Congressman Mike Rogers has introduced a new bill (H.R. 193) to end U.S. membership in the United Nations. The bill is the reintroduction of his American Sovereignty Restoration Act (H.R. 1205) from the last Congress. And of course, that was basically the same bill introduced year after year by former Congressman Ron Paul.

The Solution to Healthcare Reform

As the Republicans in Congress struggle to present a workable replacement to Obamacare, the solution is staring them in the face. It’s called free enterprise.

The only reason we need massive insurance programs today is because of government meddling in healthcare. It started with Medicare in which government dictated percentages it would pay for services. Insurance companies followed suit. Therefore, forcing doctors and hospitals to raise prices to make more money from those established percentages. To prove that fact, simply go to a hospital as an uninsured patient and observe how much they deduct from your final bill. Insurance would have had to pay the higher price.

Environmentalists Ignore the Truth About Fracking

Groups such as the Sierra Club have long claimed that fracking is an environmental hazard. The revolutionary drilling process “has contaminated the drinking water of hundreds of thousands of Americans,” Sierra says on its website. Must rest on some pretty sound science, right?

Where have all our heroes gone?

Our nation’s history is filled with heroes during times of greatest need. They seem to appear during times when all seem lost. They stand up to people who represent concepts that go against all we as a people believe relevant. Our Constitution has been attacked throughout our nation’s history yet there has always been someone who has the courage and love of country to defend all of us against any attack.

Outraged Vets: VA hospital death touted as proof of Obama and Democrats indifference

While the claims that President Barack Obama and certain Democrat politicians have a deep-seeded hatred for the U.S. military may be hyperbolic, events that continue to occur at Veterans Administration medical centers show a certain amount of indifference on their part, according to a former U.S. Marine and retired New York police detective Sidney Franes.

Others saw what the Democrats did not

As I was reorganizing Ambassador Ettinger’s column at Kingscalendar today, I noticed that on December 27th 2015 at Magic City Morning Star in Maine USA, I published for former Ambassador Yoram Ettinger, an article titled “What makes Trump tick (so far)?” I decided to go to the article and reread it. (I had never posted it here at Kingscalendar).

Putting Innocent Americans on “Trial”

“Let’s not make a federal case out of this.” Nearly all of us have heard someone say something like this at one time or another. And it used to mean something. Not anymore.

This bit of sarcasm, after all, is meant to imply that the person you’re talking to is taking some relatively small matter and making too big a deal out of it. Only the most serious crimes rise to the level of federal law, right?

The Mental Dismemberment of Children

This past Halloween I had an opportunity to take part in an activity that I haven’t done in a couple of decades- hand out candy to the children on Beggers Night.

It was fun to see the creative costumes. Some of beautiful princesses; others, usually the boys, dressed as scary monsters from movies. The scariest was, hands down, a young man who dressed up as Michael Meyers from the Halloween movies. Even the other kids wanted to stay clear of him. He had it down so well, the jump suit, the walk. He said nothing as he approached, we carefully put the goodies in his bag.
