    Joe with first hunt bagIntroducing young people to the traditions of hunting is important for members of the gun culture.   Hunting is a rewarding activity that teaches significant lessons about reality, responsibility, and ethics.It is a life changing activity that requires considerable thought, judgement, moral decisions, and actions. Joe's father has some medical problems, and had not been hunting for five years.  Joe had accompanied his father on a previous dove hunt, but had never shot at live targets before.   He had shot a shotgun one time before this, at a stationary target.    Joe is 16 years old.I was more...
  • Paul Kengor's book, "The Communist" in bookstores today.

    07/17/2012 11:02:59 AM PDT · by A'elian' nation · 4 replies
    Paul Kengor's book, "The Communist" about Obama's mentor Frank Marshall Davis is out in bookstores today. The book is published by Glenn Beck's emporium. There have been other FR articles about Kengor's book, but none of them have this link to his 3 minute video about the book. It's worth a quick look. Obama's speeches are parrot repetitions of Davis's communist orations. Davis thought that monopolies like GM needed to be controlled by the government. He hated big business and the "tentacled" rich men who ran them. He felt all Americans had the right to a "decent home." He wanted...

    The American Thinker ^ | 7/9/12 | Paul Kengor
    It's interesting that not only does Barack Obama need continued vetting, but so do his biographers. The culprit is the same: the liberal bias that dutifully protects Obama like white knights guarding the king's castle **snip** For the record, Frank Marshall Davis was introduced to Obama by Obama's grandfather, Stanley Dunham. Dunham introduced his grandson to Davis in the 1970s -- by one (authoritative) account as early as 1970. He did so for the purpose of mentoring. And what a mentor he chose: Davis had been a literal card-carrying member of Communist Party USA (CPUSA). **snip** The liberal Obama biographers...

    Many years ago, I learned of an episode in the life of a promising young black man that is relevant to things happening now. He had been educated at a good school, and went on to receive degrees at good colleges and universities. Then he went for a Ph.D. in mathematics at one of the leading departments in that field. When he encountered difficulties, his professors essentially wrote his doctoral thesis for him. No doubt they felt good about doing something to help a promising young black man, and perhaps took pride in doing so. But what about his pride?...

    "Rhetoric," according to the dictionary, is "the art of using words in speaking or writing so as to persuade or influence others." It is often referred to today as "politically correct" comments or writing and is an art form that was very much the order of the day during the Clinton Administration. The media, especially the Washington Press Corps, really loved the Clinton rhetoric and praised his "brilliance" as a leader. The exact opposite of rhetoric is a conversation with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. (1) Any reporter or member of the public who thinks that Donald Rumsfeld is trying...

    The lack of mentors in the United States for Latino students is so bad that there is a plan to import them from Mexico. Sounds like a novel idea--invite professionals from south of the border, such as scientists, athletes and artists. Have them meet and chat with young Latino kids and motivate them to stay in school. Then reciprocate by sending professionals from the United States to Mexico. Mayor Gus Garcia of Aust in, Texas, is working with the Mexican government to launch the pilot program. As much as I feel that this is a well-intended and potentially successful project,...
