Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - National Journal columnist Ron Fournier thinks the ObamaCare "shutdown" spells the end of the GOP, the status quo of the DNC and the rise of "millennials" but if Noah Webster were still alive, I imagine the caterwaul of four letter words he might use to describe the "millennial." Time Magazine gave the "Me Me Me" generation a cover story last May and concluded, "They’re narcissistic. They’re lazy. They’re coddled. They’re even a bit delusional. Those aren’t just unfounded negative stereotypes about 80 million Americans born roughly between 1980 and 2000. They’re backed up by a decade of sociological research." Fournier can be forgiven for not reading Time that week but there is no contrition for elevating the millennials to the Madisonian heights of "revolutionary".

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Everyone has those friends who are just big, like REALLY big, either tall, muscular, or both... but they're nice guys. They're the type of guys that don't start fights, don't throw their weight around, don't get involved in other peoples business. So why can't the good old US of A be more like that? Why do we have to be the big angry drunk at the party who keeps yelling in everyone's faces and trying to start fights? We have the power to essentially blow any other country off the face of the map and we go around bragging about it, why? We should be more humble about our power. Other countries should look at us an example of leadership and say "hey, those Americans are cool, they have all this power and they never use it or even talk about it... and they're fun to have at parties," instead, many countries hate us because of our use of force.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Russell Kirk published "The Conservative Mind" in 1953, guess what ELSE was published in 1953? The scientific "discoveries" that were predicted to, by now, have delivered our scientifically engineered and guided, utopia. Two schools of thought in the same year and most Americans followed the scientific one, not the one that would have improved their spiritual lives with what Kirk called "the permanent things". Things such as morality and values. We have been becoming more and more of a scientific society since 1953 and forgetting about "the permanent things", these are the most important things in our life, not engineering our genes to create perfect children.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - There's a headline at cbsnews.com that says that "Can US Consumers Save The Economy?". But isn't consumerism what's wrong with America? Isn't there another school of thought, from Wilhelm Röpke and others, that says that consuming will not get us out of debt? So this article is nothing more than an attempt at trying to get Americans to try and get their butts off the wealth of cash they are hording and SPEND SPEND SPEND. But the article also states that Americans are also using more credit cards for purchases, more student loans, and more financing for cars and such. So what does that tell us? That they are BORROWING more! That most Americans don't have any cash to spend! And... that most of us are acting like the Congress that we supposedly abhor by borrowing against our future.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - There was an America and an American people long before the Founding, long before the writing and ratifying of the Constitution. But don't tell the Decepticons, or New Jacobins as Claes Ryn calls them, because they will tell you that American Exceptionalism was born in 1776... but it's just not true. There was over a century of American tradition before 1776, and British tradition well before that. So why do the modern day Decepticons believe that American Tradition started in 1776? Because that's when the narrative started, it's a touchstone, and we somehow created a new way of thinking out of nowhere. But the events in North America of the previous 100 years have a huge influence on 1776. For more be sure and check out today's Founders TV and sign up for a Founders Pass if you haven't already.
Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - People are renouncing their United States Citizenship in droves... and why you might ask? To get away from Obamacare, to get away from the Federal Tyranny, and of course to get away from paying Federal Income Taxes. However if you still want to do business in the United States, as most of the people who are renouncing their citizenship will want to do, you'll STILL HAVE TO PAY THE INCOME TAX. This also affects how passports were issued, since you're renouncing you're United States citizenship, what about your state? What if you want to get a passport from your state and travel between it and a foreign country? Is that still possible?
