Conservative Truth
Congress Cannot Stop School Shootings
Dr. Tom Barrett
What’s the first thing you hear after every mass shooting? “Congress needs to do something!” But what is that “something” Congress should do? Congress can only pass laws. What laws should those be? There is no law or combination of laws that would stop school shootings. Even if Congress managed to repeal the Second Amendment, there are almost 400 million guns in the U.S. The only thing that would happen is that there would be even more guns in the hands of criminals.

Consider this. Filthy-mouthed rappers who advocate the rape of women and the assassination of police have armed guards. Big, strong NFL football stars have armed guards. Our politicians are surrounded by armed guards. But our children are not considered worthy of the same protection.  Read more...

Donald Trump is walking out of the White House and heading toward his limo when a possible assassin steps forward and aims a gun.
 
A secret service agent, new on the job, shouts “Mickey Mouse!” This startles the would-be assassin and he is captured.
 
Later, the secret service agent’s supervisor takes him aside and asks, “What in the heck made you shout Mickey Mouse?”
 
Blushing, the agent replies, “I got nervous. I meant to shout “Donald - duck!”

A few decades ago the push for the new PC and diversity was spearheaded by debate and dialog, but today political activist judges, agency appointees, and others are pulling rule changes right out of the hat - indiscriminately.

The enforcement arms of the LGBT are into everything. Lately, they added the letter “K” to their long list of letters in their ever expanding acronym. The K stands for - kink. Read more...

What was our Founding Fathers’ attitude regarding debt? “We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.” Thomas Jefferson later remarked,  “I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution. I would be willing to depend on that alone for the reduction of the administration of our government; I mean an additional article taking from the Federal Government the power of borrowing.”  Read more...

One day, not so long ago, we gave up our cars and our air conditioners so that the climate could cool and the Earth would heal. It was not enough. So, we shuttered our factories and stilled our cities, turning our backs on the technology we had grown to despise. At first, pleased with our progress, we celebrated our righteousness, willing to abandon human advancement for a simpler, more natural existence. Read more...

President Trump was asked, in an interview with Israel Hayom, “What was the highlight of your first year?” He said “I think Jerusalem…I wanted to make it clear that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.” Presidents Bush, Clinton and Obama each promised to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem. They did not. The American Embassy will be in Jerusalem in 2019. Read more...

What would happen if your young child drew all over his or her bedroom walls? Of course as a doting parent, you would say it was art. I mean – what’s a coat of paint. It’s not worth getting upset about. The child is too young to understand anyway. So instead you say: “You did such a great job I think we’ll just leave it be.” And accept it you do, at least for a while, as the work of art it was intended. You even have him or her sign it, or make some sort of identifying mark to make their own. Read more...

A notable humanistic psychologist Abraham Maslow (1908-1970), considered that “man is a perpetually wanting animal” and researched the dynamics of multiple determinants of human behavior. In “A Theory of Human Motivation” (1943), Maslow presented his views on hierarchy of needs that serve as our driving force. The psychologist observed "The average member of our society is most often partially satisfied and partially unsatisfied in all his wants."

Looking at the five-tier “Pyramid of Needs,” I can´t help but wonder how the requisites of an “average member of our society” differ from wishes of wannabe members of power elite.

This upsets me, but if we are to remain true to conservative ideals, we must be prepared to call out those who appear to have abandoned them.

For years, we’ve all complained about the democrat stenographers who pretend to be the main stream press. But now it seems the President has his very own in Sean Hannity, and it saddens me to even report it.  Read more...

About two weeks ago I wrote an article on the word alacrity. I received many positive comments by you readers on the article. So, I thought to revisit the concept of alacrity again this week. You may recall alacrity means a brisk and cheerful readiness. Here is an example of alacrity in action. Read more...

This week, a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida shot and killed at least 17 students and adults, and injured more than a dozen others. Recently, a student shot and killed two fellow-students and wounded twenty others at Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky. This follows a shooting the day before in Texas of a girl by a male student. Everyone agrees that something must be done. However, few agree on the solution. The only workable solution is to train willing school personnel in the use of guns but they must have a willingness to use them in defense of others! Read more...

Many of us don’t think much of the flu, other than the warnings on commercials for various remedies, that it’s cold and flu season. It’s never been thought of as a killer disease or affliction.

However, the fact is that Worldwide, the flu has become an epidemic. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates “these annual [flu] epidemics to result in about 3 to 5 million cases of severe illness, and about 290,000 to 650,000 deaths.” Read more...
Was it handled properly, or did the administration look the other way?

It just doesn’t seem to stop. Day after day, week after week, months go by and already a year has passed, and the acrimony and controversy surrounding this president, whether ill-conceived by his detractors or self-inflicted by his own behavior and character traits, is a daily ongoing American drama that the world tunes into.   Read more...
