Theodore Roosevelt’s “Strenuous Life” Speech Today

By Simon Maass Reading Theodore Roosevelt’s famous “strenuous life” speech nowadays elicits, mainly, two reactions. Firstly, one is struck by the strength of the late statesman’s character – Roosevelt’s biography leaves no doubt as to his sincerity in expounding “the doctrine of the strenuous life, the life of toil and effort, of labor and strife.”Continue reading “Theodore Roosevelt’s “Strenuous Life” Speech Today”

Happy July 4th, 2022 — A Day for Conservative Celebration!

Nowadays, it’s rare to feel optimistic about the future. The March of the progressive cathedral has seemed to move unabated and every meager conservative victory has been met in force with a larger progressive reaction and retribution. The meager gains of Trumpism were wiped out in a year, and replaced with an administration of bumblingContinue reading “Happy July 4th, 2022 — A Day for Conservative Celebration!”

Phillip K. Dick’s FORGOTTEN Pro-Life Short Story… “The Pre-Persons”

By @GingerManEditorial Many, many years ago, I stumbled across a mention of a little known story – The Pre-Persons by Philip K. Dick. I was immediately intrigued for two reasons. The first being that Dick is one of the legends of sci-fi. Even if you haven’t heard of him, you’re familiar with his work. DickContinue reading “Phillip K.

HUMMEL Review: What is a Woman?

I should speak candidly before I got into this review. I’m probably not approaching this from the same direction as most conservatives. Despite being a relatively traditionalist Christian and a Republican, my social views tend to slightly skew libertarian, in the sense that I tend to be quite sympathetic to people who suffer with genderContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: What is a Woman?”

Blaming the Gun: On Gun Control, Gun Statistics, and the Aftermath of School Shootings

I’ve been berated by promoted tweets all week by leftists and Democratic politicians demanding that the US abolish gun rights in the aftermath of the horrible shooting in Uvalde and I’ve become sufficiently annoyed that I need to talk about this. I recognize that shouldn’t be the primary emotion one feels after a school shooting, butContinue reading “Blaming the Gun: On Gun Control, Gun Statistics, and the Aftermath of School Shootings”

Into the Boomer Sanctum – When I Got Free Tickets to the Mike Huckabee Live Show

It’s been said that when in Rome, one must do as the Romans do. With that candor and apprehension in mind, I walked into the auditorium of Trinity Music City in Hendersonville, TN — the former city of gospel singer legend Johnny Cash — to see a live recording of Huckabee. Mike Huckabee remains aContinue reading “Into the Boomer Sanctum – When I Got Free Tickets to the Mike Huckabee Live Show”

On Jordan Peterson – Live at the Rymen: The Celebrity Psychologist Approaches Six Years in the Spotlight

I saw Dr. Jordan B. Peterson speak live a few weeks ago at the Rymen Auditorium in Nashville, and I’m not sure how to feel about what I saw. This was the second time I’ve seen him live. I previously saw him when he headlined the Chicago Theater in 2018, following the massive success ofContinue reading “On Jordan Peterson – Live at the Rymen: The Celebrity Psychologist Approaches Six Years in the Spotlight”

Hope, Legacy, Change: Muddled Wokeness and Weak Storytelling in The Batman (SPOILERS)

Fair Warning: Spoilers ahead for The Batman, do not proceed if you care to go into the movie blind. If you want to see my non-spoiler thoughts on The Batman, I would recommend checking out my review at Geeks Under Grace.

COSMO – In Wake of the Plague: A Personal Tale of Covid19

After two years of completely avoiding illness, in January of 2022, I succumbed. It started gradually, about the week of Monday the 10th. I took some zinc and vitamin C and spent the weekend resting. The next week, Tuesday rolled around and I woke up stuffy. But Spring comes early CA and I’ve always hadContinue reading “COSMO – In Wake of the Plague: A Personal Tale of Covid19”
