Shawn Mathis: It is naïve to think that laws and political parties and sound-bite arguments can keep a divided culture together.
I’m not a political animal at all. It’s not that politics and politicians don’t interest me; they do. It’s that they usually frustrate and disgust me so much that I find myself needing to have some type of a ritual cleansing after having been around them (both “politics” and “politicians”). However, there are times when […]

The House Republicans are rolling out the “Pledge to America” today which is basically is trying to mimic the Contract With America rolled out by former Speaker Newt Gingrich. How does this Contract With America 2.0 measure up? What emphasis is given to social issues? In this 21-page-document, abortion is mentioned in three different spots. […]
I remember the nurse practitioner saying, “I have a legal obligation to tell you that you can end this pregnancy.” In spite of being overwhelmed by the timing of this pregnancy, this was the last thing I would do or needed to hear. It was offensive that she had the legal obligation to say this […]
I apologize that the formal announcement of our 2009 Caffeinated Conservative Award was put on the back burner after our 2009 recipient was informally announced. Life circumstances, work and timely blog subjects prevented me from posting this sooner. We had several nominated by our contributors for this most coveted prize: Glenn Beck, Congressman Ron Paul […]
