“I believe that this nation is the last hope of Western civilization and if this oasis of the world shall be overrun, perverted, contaminated or destroyed, then the last flickering light of humanity will be extinguished. “I take no issue with those who would praise the contributions which have been made to our society by people of many races, of varied creeds and colors. America is indeed a joining together of many streams which go to form a mighty river which we call the American way.

Amendment A: Aggregate Government Service

Term limits currently apply to the president: He or she cannot serve more than 2.5 terms. (The half term would arise in cases where the role of president was taken over because of vacancy mid-term.) Mark Levin’s proposal for this in The Liberty Amendments runs as follows: […]

Constitutional Repair

In another blog, by the estimable Citizen Tom, I engaged a pretend conservative who regularly haunts that site. The discussion post, entitled What Do We Do?, raised the issue I wrote about yesterday: How do we fix the current political problems that arise from erosion of the Constitution. Before we get into my reply to faux conservative “scout,” let’s talk about other alternatives: […]

Constitutional Concerns

The US Constitution does not need to be replaced or scrapped, as a number of folks on the left have suggested going back to President Woodrow Wilson. It does not need to be cured of its fatal flaws, so that Obama can implement redistribution of wealth and “break free” from the negative liberties placed by the founding fathers to prevent this, as Obama said in 2001. Nevertheless, there are major problems with our current government. Some examples after a design overview: […]

Old hands

I am older than most folks. I got into computers relatively early, and was making my living from computers full-time by the mid-1970s. While I am not big on social media per se, I did get involved with LiveJournal early on, and was one of its first lifetime paid users as it was rocketing into popularity (before MySpace and FaceBook and Twitter). So this recent XKCD strip was a bit poignant: […]
