Reward a righty. Convert a lefty. Go on offense. Share the conservative joy and arm yourself for the battle for limited government. Click below for a sample.
Did you buy a copy before February 2015? If so, you need to contact me for a free replacement -- or replacements if you bought more than one. I've added a lot and you need the revised version.

In a previous post, I said I had not heard from the Lee Terry campaign about the statement I was asked to make about voting for Terry. At Lee's request, we met today and he graciously asked to use the statement. Onward and upward. Click below to read the statement.

Some pro-life friends asked me to endorse Republican Lee Terry. They are worried that conservatives won't vote for Terry and he'll lose to pro-choice Democrat Brad Ashford. I said I could not endorse Terry. An endorsement is a seal of approval. I said I would explain why I am voting for Terry. I submitted my explanation to the Terry campaign September 12. As of today I have not heard from the Terry campaign, but that campaign or any other entity is welcome to use my statement, which you can see by clicking below.

I recently traveled to Guatemala with my wife and four Guatemala-born children. I developed some thoughts about immigration, wrote 'em up, and submitted them to the Omaha World-Herald as a column. The OWH rejected it. Click below if you want to read it.

Stories about the bowl victory over Georgia said Coach Pelini was not willing to resurrect his “Nebraska is back and we’re here to stay!” declaration made after the 2009 bowl victory. Why is Nebraska NOT back after 6 years of a coach making SEC money?

We're on the one road,
Sharing the one load,
We're on the road to God knows where.
We're on the one road,
It may be the wrong road,
But we're together now who cares?
North men, South men, comrades all,
Dublin, Belfast, Cork, and Donegal.
We're on the one road swinging along,
Singing a soldier's song.

Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum. That's Latin for: I announce to you a great joy. It's how the introduction of a new pope begins. That's what you saw bubbling up in St. Peter's Square: pure joy. The guy on the balcony is as close as we get to God in this life. He's a sinner, but he's our link to Peter and thus to the One who commissioned Peter to lead the church. Viva il Papa.

That's our son, Oto, on the right side of the picture, kneeling at the communion rail at the Mass celebrated by the cardinals before they entered the Sistine Chapel for the conclave on Tuesday. The picture was at www.demotix.com. I need some space space space space space.
We think that's Oto beneath the arrow. Only a mother's radar was able to detect it. The picture was at www.religionnews.com. . .. need space space space space space space.
Oto, wearing a blue jacket and waving an American flag, can be seen at 1:15 and 2:42. The original video from the Vatican Television Center disappeared. This is from YouTube.

"We're the healthiest horse in the glue factory." That's Creighton University economics professor Ernie Goss on KFAB today quoting former U.S. Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY) quoting fellow debt commission leader Erskine Bowles, former Clinton White House chief of staff and nationally prominent Democrat, on how robust financial market indicators can hide the true state of the nation's overall, long-term fiscal situation.

I saw this speech live June 18, 2011, at the RightOnline convention in Minneapolis. I had dismissed the guy as a smart-aleck. I underestimated him. He died a year ago today. I wish he was still alive.

I'm guest-hosting. Chuck Hagel had to scramble to apologize for criticizing an aggressively gay nominee for an ambassadorship more than a decade ago. The federal Defensive of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8 face court challenges. Where are we as a society on homosexuality and same-sex marriage?

Bill, my unofficial program observer (not to be confused with Bo Snerdley, Rush Limbaugh's official program observer), offered this nugget, this gem, this choice Christmas morsel.

How many times can a coach making $3 million say after a debacle of a game: "I'm shocked, we didn't execute, I don't know why, and I don't know what to do about it"?
