    Vive L'Écosse Libre!

    I hope I’m not mangling the French in my title, “Vive l'Écosse Libre!” It’s a gloss on de Gaulle’s shout at Montreal City Hall on July 24, 1967, “Vive le Québec libre!”

    Waist Deep in the Big Sandy

    In his Wednesday evening speech, President Obama announced he was sending us back big time into the Big Sandy of Iraq, this time including Syria, to battle the evil forces which he annoyingly, like the rest of administration, still calls ISIL.

    Functionally atheist government schools

    A couple of times in my writings for Chronicles I’ve mentioned “functionally atheist government schools.” That’s what they’ve been since the early 1960s, when several U.S. Supreme Court edicts effectively banned any mention of religion, or anything approaching religion, from public schools.

    Subgroup Strife in the Golden State

    It wasn’t supposed to end like this. We were all going to “get along” in a diverse, multicultural paradise, led by our brilliant universities. But in a pattern sure to spread across America, the ethnic strife in California is increasing, not decreasing, as the state becomes even more diverse.

    The Fruits of Fraud

    The worst thing about the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 legalization of abortion in all 50 states and U.S. territories has not been the 55 million—and counting—dead babies, as horrible as that has been, but the damage it has caused to the rule of law, specifically the U.S. Constitution.

    How’d the Iraq War work out for you?

    I always think of my neighbor's son who died by an IED back in 2006 whenever some big news comes out about Iraq, such as the recent reports on the ISIS al Qaeda affiliate taking over large areas of Iraq the U.S. military had conquered a decade ago. It was all for nothing, people are saying.

    Schadefreude over Michael Moore’s divorce?

    Raised a Catholic, his marriage likely is sacramental, which means he still would be married whatever decision is made by the courts of the civil government he loves so much and seeks to expand ad infinitum.

    Immigration issue lying in the street

    Right now the immigration issue is lying in the street for whatever Republican presidential candidate, if any, is willing to pick it up – and not just toy with it, but make another 40-year ban the centerpiece of his campaign.

    Mencken and the World Warmonger

    As World War I is remembered in this year of its hundredth anniversary, one rivalry continues to resonate across America. It isn’t between the Allies and the Central Powers, or between two houses of European royalty, but between two countrymen: President Woodrow Wilson and H.L. Mencken, the Bad Boy of Baltimore.

    Rummy is the tax problem, not the solution

    In his actual tweet, SecDef Donald Rumsfeld wrote, “That I & most Americans have no idea whether our taxes are accurate tells us something.” Yes. And one thing it tells us that he still won’t admit he’s a major cause of the problem.
