“Woe to the land whose king is a child and whose leaders are already drunk in the morning. Happy the land whose king is a nobleman, and whose leaders work hard before they feast and drink, and then only to strengthen themselves for the tasks ahead”. (Eccl 10: 16-17)


"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat


Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput

Coming Soon - More PAIN at the Gasoline Pump

Unleaded Gasoline prices rallied off their lows with the inception of tensions in the Straits of Hormuz but that has now taken a back seat to the LIQUIDITY PARTY being thrown by the Federal Reserve.

Can we say, "DEJA VU!".

Get used to further pain at the gasoline pump once again thanks to our illustrious money masters who continue to throw both senior citizens and the average citizen under the bus in the name of jamming the stock market higher to supposedly bolster consumer confidence. Yeah, I feel extremely confident - confident that food and energy prices are going to resume their upward march once again thanks to these bozos.

Wait until you see beef and pork prices later this spring and summer. You ain't seen nuthin' yet!
