    Good day. I downloaded the new and improved OS, OS X Yosemite. At first blush, there are some features I miss about Mavericks, but I need to waste.....I mean, spend more time with Yosemite. It's too early to say "yay" or "nay", or perhaps the conclusion won't be so black and white, unless you're a "I HATE! all things Apple...including those snobby Mac Users", of course. What say you about OS X Yosemite? Any pointers/advice/recommendations by you techies out there?

We’ve been taking the necessary precautions, including working with countries in West Africa to increase screening at airports so that...

    Reflections on the question of "looking the other way..." Ever since the beginning of the Republic, political parties have had to ask their voters to disregard a few occasional disagreements, and look instead at the bigger picture, in hope that their agreements would outweigh the disagreements, winning them their votes in the end.. For example, the Federalists might ask their supporters to forgive their support for a possibly unconstitutional bank, and support them anyway because of their broad and amazing economic and foreign policy successes… while the Jeffersonians (a.k.a. the Democratic-Republicans, back then) would ask their supporters to forgive their...

Here is the proposed amendment: Act 2013-267, HB8, proposes an amendment to Article I, Section 26 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that every citizen has a fundamental right to bear arms and that any restriction on this right would be subject to strict scrutiny. The proposed amendment also provides that no international treaty or law may prohibit,...

    Whites walking down Main Street with an AK-47 are defenders of American values; a black man doing the same thing is Public Enemy No. 1. These are the words of Charles Gallagher, professor at La Salle University in Pennsylvania and "a sociologist who studies race", according to a CNN article on guns-race relationship. The assumption is that Americans are biased against black people. The reality is very different.

The Alabama Constitution of 1901, Article I, Declaration of Rights, Section 26 states: That every citizen has a right to bear arms in defence [sic] of himself and the State.

America’s War of Independence was striking for many reasons, reasons that are sometimes overshadowed by the shock of a ragtag army defeating the world’s greatest military power. But this striking issue is in fact just as important as the victory itself: As historian Joseph J. Ellis puts it, the American Revolution is famous for the fact that “it didn’t eat its young.” Consider the French Revolution, and its subsequent Reigns of Terror, followed by the Napoleonic Wars. Most revolutions go through stages: overthrow the incumbent ruling class, then kill them all,...

    The Washington Free Beacon happened to stumble upon an interesting factoid, and they published it. One day, the Obama administration spent $94,360 hiring a Democrat-connected event-management firm to build a stage for an 18-minute speech. The shock is not that it happened; it happens every day. The shock, to any who are paying attention, is how differently the political factions viewed the news. Conservatives were horrified, and liberals were offended that anyone would even care. A hundred thousand dollars in a country of our size? A hundred thousand dollars in a nation of fifty states, of 300 million people? A...

As the world’s largest non-airline civilian pilot and airplane organization, its attitude towards its members’ passion is surprising. First, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association President and CEO Mark Baker pens an article in which he admits that the price of new airplanes – even the Light Sport Aircraft that were to bring flying back to the average pilot – is too high for most to afford. Instead, he and AOPA are now pushing flying clubs as the answer to...

    During his United Nations address, President Barack Obama went out of his way to heap praise on a particular Muslim cleric. The ideology of ISIL or al Qaeda or Boko Haram will wilt and die if it is consistently exposed, confronted, and refuted in the light of day. Look at the new Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies – Sheikh bin Bayyah described its purpose: “We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.” A fine sentiment, but one that Sheikh Abdallah bin Bayyah probably does not mean in the way that Obama thinks...

    Writing for LifeSiteNews, Pete Baklinski notes how, "Girls in first grade in a Toronto Catholic school will be sharing a washroom this year with a biological boy whose lesbian parent has chosen to identify him as a 'girl.' A mother whose young daughter attends the school in the Toronto Catholic District School Board is concerned about the implications of allowing a biological boy to share her daughter’s washroom and changing room, especially as the boy moves into puberty. The mother, under condition of anonymity, shared her concerns with Phil Lees, president of Public Education Advocates for Christian Equity (P.E.A.C.E.), who...

    American Clarion ^ | September 23, 2014 | Gina Miller
    This is a difficult column to write. It may earn me scorn from fellow conservatives who strongly trust in their hard-earned, stored provisions. But, it is a subject that has weighed on my mind. The question concerns Christians, not unbelievers. Is serious “prepping” something Christians should do? Prepping, as you may know, is the laying up of food, water, weapons, ammunition and other supplies for the event of future disaster, commonly referred to in the prepper community by the initials SHTF (“stuff” hits the fan). There are Christian prepper communities. According to one such Christian website entry: The prepper sees...

    Before I get started with my question (and boy, do I need ideas!) I want to note that I'm a *secular* Conservative, and do not identify as a Christian. So any forthcoming ideas from y'all that are based strictly on Bible teachings, etc. are not going to be terribly useful to me. My problem: Our twin boys are 7 (pushing 8) and homeschooled. They probably know more about history than any other seven-year-olds in town, but I'll admit I've skipped over some areas of education so far. One of those "skipped over" areas is the concept of homosexuality. I wanted...

    Foundation for Economic Education ^ | Aug 01, 1976 | Oscar W. Cooley
    The word "right," used as a noun, means, my dictionary tells me, a "just, or lawful claim." Claim on what? On whatever I want and can lawfully have. I have a right to life, that is, a just claim on life. I have a right to liberty, a just claim to be free. I have a right to property, a just claim on land, goods, or other wealth. My right is not life, liberty, property, but rather my proper and just claim upon these things. The distinction is important. It was understood by our revolutionary forefathers but is widely misunderstood...
