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?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If the people of Germany could survive the Kaiser, World War I, Weimar Republic, unbelievable inflation, the rise of national socialism, the rise of Nazism, World War II, and then come out on the other side wealthier and better off than they were when they went in, I think we’re going to do okay as Americans. We’re resourceful. We have, as I said, an unbelievable amount of resources at our disposal. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The only thing that is truly exceptional about America is our military, namely the fact that we are the only country in the history of the known universe to use Nuclear weapons on another people. The end of the war was brought about more hastily because of the use of nuclear weapons but does that make it moral? The only conclusion that a Christian can come to is no, it was not moral.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Brad Birzer has an article at The Imaginative Conservative entitled "Reflections on A Republic Divided to the Point of Collapse". In the article, Brad makes the point that our nation has always been divided, much as it is now, and the only time that men from different parts of the country truly work together is when they must sacrifice themselves for the good of the nation, like in a time of war. We're not sure if Brad is trying to make the point that today people need to get out from behind their computers, stop watching Fox News, and actually get out there and do something or not, but it seems that way.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - We have civilian control over military affairs. That’s supposed to be the American tradition. In the last 40 years, we really don’t have civilian control, see Vietnam War. We’re supposed to have civilian control over military affairs. If the people don’t want to go to war, you don’t go to war. If the people don’t support a war, you end the war. This is the way it’s supposed to work. The military answers to us; we do not answer to the military. Yes, that means we don’t answer to bureaucrats who report for duty about 50,000 of you listening to me right now every morning at the Pentagon. You are not our military superiors. You don’t get to lead us into battle simply because you have a security clearance. Check out the rest in today's transcript...

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - I believe somewhere in my closet at home, I have at least one shirt that was sewn together by the people of Bangladesh. They’re big into textiles. Should we get together and have a Bangladesh burning party? We’ll all get our fabrics and shirts together and anything that has been made in Bangladesh. I think I bought the Bangladeshi shirt because I try not to buy anything that’s made in China, and it’s almost impossible to do. If I can find an alternative that was made in South America or made in South Carolina -- I always look for the Made in the USA brand first. I’m not obsessive or possessive over it. I’m pretty sure I have clothing that has been made in Bangladesh. This is a major problem for many of you. You decepticons out there, those of you that think we need to expand our empire and occupy more places in the world because they all want to kill us, that every Muslim alive wants to kill us and destroy our way of life, you’ve got a whole new country to deal with.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - The true conservative in the mold of [r]epublicans like Madison and Washington and Taylor of Caroline and the Englishman Burke and 20th century versions you would find like Tolkien and C.S. Elliott and Russell Kirk and others, they would not recognize today’s conservatives. I think that says an awful lot of bad things about today’s conservatives. I used to ask the question: what is it that we want to conserve? It’s not all about politics. Sometimes it’s about literature, sometimes it’s about manners, sometimes there are matters of faith, matters of virtue and character. These are the things that ought to describe the conservative. It seems to me that you find that liberals are more open to saying the culture of every other country doesn’t suck, as you’ll hear many conservatives “That country stinks. They’re knocking America. They stink.” The conservative acknowledges that there are other cultures that are just as viable as ours and that maybe we can even learn things from them. Check out the rest in the transcript...
