The Right to Bare Arms (Knees Too!)

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Much ado about burkini bans in recent days. On one hand, that sounds a bit silly — women and men should be able to wear what they want, and be comfortable — on the other hand, there are good reasons to oppose burkinis on western beaches and at public pools. Here’s the best commentary I’ve […]

Muslim leaders on emigration to the West, in their own words

Monday, August 29th, 2016

Who’s the best source, if we want to investigate this concern, this report, that Muslims who want to subvert The West are using ”immigration” and the excuse of “wartime refugees” to move into Europe and now into America hundreds of thousands (oh, let’s be honest, millions) of their people with no desire to assimilate — […]

Voices of Compassion, Freedom of Faith

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Brunette here (Trigger warning may apply. Or not. Reader discretion advised.) 😉 Trying to wrap my head around the subject of Islam, and what its increasing presence means to the West, has been daunting. Clearly Muslims are humans first and foremost, and deserve to be seen as individuals like anyone else. It would be a […]

‘Tolerance’ sounds great. But is there no limit to what we can wisely ‘tolerate’?

Charles C. Haynes, who works out of Gannett’s financially strapped “Newseum” in Washington, holds a master’s degree from Harvard Divinity School and promotes himself as a champion of the First Amendment (though, being a statist Democrat, he has of course written in favor of federal “anti-hate-speech” legislation — http://capcityfreepress.blogspot.com/2009/11/charles-c-haynes-say-what-you-want-hate.html .)

Natural Order, the State, and the Immigration Problem

Saturday, July 23rd, 2016

Rather than leave the impression that no free-market thinker of any note stands opposed to this “open borders” stuff – (“Please! Send us millions more Spanish-speaking peasants who scorn our laws and want to stick us with their medical bills, and now please add a couple million unreconstructed members of an alien religion, whose holy […]

Our hard-working, south-of-the-border freedom fighters

Monday, June 27th, 2016

Imagine with me we’re attending one of those “candidate forums” where local office-seekers address the public. Two candidates for the office of dog-catcher rise. The first seems unaccustomed to public speaking. He offers no grandiose speech. He just calmly says “If you elect me, I’m going to do my best to round up these packs […]

Setting up the straw man

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

About a week after the Libertarian Party convention in Orlando rebuffed the candidacies of John McAfee and a few other freedom radicals over the Memorial Day weekend — instead deciding to try again with “moderate” former New Mexico Republican Gov. Gary Johnson and the even less libertarian gun-grabbing Republican Bill Weld of Massachusetts — party […]

Try amnesty without the hypocrisy

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

Delegates of both parties preparing to cave on amnesty for another 10 to 14 million illegal aliens might want to take a gander at a new Pulse Opinion Research survey of 1,000 likely voters nationwide, available at http://tinyurl.com/axlxkyn. “A new poll using neutral language — and avoiding the false choice of conditional legalization vs. mass […]

‘Stroke of the pen, law of the land, kinda cool’

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

President Barack Obama’s supporters have cheered the boldness with which he’s cut through the Gordian knot of congressional “gridlock,” instituting changes in the law that meet with their approval through executive fiat. But to fully grasp the danger of a president thus bypassing our constitutional system of checks and balances — a system in which […]
