Why our approach to immigration ‘borders’ on the absurd- T.J. O'Hara

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., July 14, 2014 – Our political “customs” are in evidence as we see the immigration issue unfold. Recently, over 39,000 families and 52,000 unaccompanied children have been detained for entering our southern border illegally. This latest surge adds to the 11-13 million individuals who are estimated to already reside in our country illegally. Yet, our elected officials are calling for emergency measures as if the problem represented a new phenomenon.

It is called ‘The Declaration of Independence’ for a reason- T.J. O'Hara

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., July 4, 2014 – While small town parades, backyard barbecues and fireworks displays may be what many people associate with the 4th of July, Independence Day deserves far greater respect. Fifty-six men signed a single piece of parchment on this day in 1776 that contained 1338 words that changed the history of the world for the better. That hallowed document claimed independence not only for a Nation but for a People. Unfortunately, 238 years later, we are in danger of surrendering to the temptation of dependence.

Independence Days: The days more important than July 4th

July 4, 1776, was a day that marked a culmination in one phase of struggle for American independence and personal freedom. Many Americans had sacrificed life, fortune, and time to bring forth the ideas that were officially born on July 4, 1776. These Americans were volunteer soldiers and sailors and their families. These Americans were our Founding Fathers and supporters who sacrificed fortunes, time, and thought in crafting ideas and a framework for independence and personal freedom.

Let FREEDOM ring in the Ukraine…and the United States- by T.J. O'Hara

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., March 10, 2014 – The Ukrainian crisis seems to have caught many Americans by surprise, which is surprising in itself…or perhaps just disappointing. Our Nation and its leaders seem to be captivated by the moment; living in a Twitter-like world that carries an attention span of 140 hours instead of 140 characters. While it is discouraging with respect to our citizens, it is totally unacceptable with regard to our Government.

3 steps to fix the political system the Parties have broken- T.J. O'Hara

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., March 3, 2014 – Our political system is dysfunctional if not completely broken. It has become so corrosive that many citizens have abandoned any hope of changing it for the better. Others are inclined to commit their blind allegiance to a particular Party; convinced that it occupies the moral and intellectual high-ground while the other Party is comprised of only slightly-evolved Neanderthals. To paraphrase Eldridge Cleaver: Neither behavior represents part of the solution, but rather, both are part of the problem.

This was created by the NY gang. You'll need MSPowerpoint to open. This will help you understand the "unparty" and non-traditional nature of modern Whig philosophy.

RationalWiki Post

Has anyone seen the post on RationalWiki about The Modern Whigs? It's very unflattering, to say the least.  http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Modern_Whig_party 

I really wonder if there's any way to answer it...
