Slouching Towards Sodom

By Charlie Johnston I think I have figured out the main reason why social media sites and establishment “news” outlets have gotten completely brazen in their censoring of conservatives and blocking any and all news that is detrimental to Democrats and the narrative. Perhaps you have heard that Twitter and Facebook are now banning people […]

The Shifting of the Tide

By Charlie Johnston Amid the swirling chaos it can be hard to see that attitudes are changing. Last week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis lifted nearly all Covid restrictions in his state – and promised work on a “bill of rights” to protect college students from being expelled for attending a party. Now if all you […]

A Couple of First Things

By Charlie Johnston The Difference Between a Threshold Issue and a Single Issue When I was a teenager, a very nice old man, Mr. Valentin (pronounced like the saint) lived kitty-corner behind us on the next street up.

Meeker. I’ve been through it before – and look forward to that day when everything starts to flow easier and easier. It does […]

The Democrats have unleashed the ravenous beast […]

The Devil Came Down to Limon

  By Charlie Johnston Last Tuesday, the Lincoln County Health Dept. informed us we will not be able to hold our conference in Limon. Oh, let me correct that…they informed us that we can hold it so long as we never have more than 10 people in a single room, all wear masks at all […]

What We Have Done

By Charlie Johnston If you lost your job, but had $250,000 in the bank, you could live normally for quite some time if you are middle class, by drawing down on your capital. Every week you did that, though, you would be headed towards a precipitous cliff. Do it long enough and you would plunge […]
