The Errors of ‘Democracy’

We are heirs of a tradition. Each of us is born into circumstances that were created by our parents, by our grandparents, by our ancestors, and by the civilization in which they lived. Human life existed before we were born and will continue after our deaths. As children we inherit the past. As parents we […]

Professional Perverts

What kind of people want to talk dirty to children? Perverts, and also government sex educators. But I repeat myself: The former Ontario deputy education minister who oversaw the development of a controversial sex-ed program before facing child sex charges will plead guilty to a number of those charges.

Somewhere around the ObamaCare cramdown, I started toying with the theory that the Left (at least its Godless Commie […]
