NYRP v Corlett

“So ummmm… have you heard about the Supreme Court case?”   “New York Rifle and Pistol v Corlett?”   “Yeah… that one. Does that mean that we are all going to be able to finally get off-roster guns?”   “Ummmmm… maybe a discussion is in order.”   I have had numerous conversations over the last week that essentially started out like that....

Turtle

Last week I subjected you all to a long missive about the decline of the American Republic. This week I have decided to be a little more optimistic and discuss something, frankly, far more critical to us all as individuals: character.   From business, to politics, to law, to the basic interactions between us as people,...

Executive Orders

Lincoln Memorial

The Masters

Well… I have been “unfriended” from a longtime “friend” on Facebook.  Evidently he did not take kindly to my responding to his post that we should “…all be reporting to the authorities on our friends and families who are articulating ‘extremist’ views.”  (His articulation of extremism was to reference those who voted for President...
