Why does the government insist on hunting for complicated solutions to problems that can be solved very easily? Once you have a government job is it really that hard to consider simple solutions?

The state of Arizona has become a dumping ground for illegal immigrants crossing the border into Texas. A large number of those illegals are children… Children with out any adult supervision other than the coyotes that bring them across the border and abandon them. Some of these unsupervised children are being used as drug mules to get drugs from Mexico into the United States.

The state of Texas is covered up with this massive illegal immigration, with thousands upon thousands of illegal immigrants crossing into Texas every single month. The system to handle these illegal immigrants in Texas has become so overwhelmed that ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) has run out of places to put these immigrants in Texas, and their solution is to force this plague on other states. ICE and the Border Patrol are now dumping unaccompanied illegal immigrant children Continue reading »

Someone get this printed on a t-shirt:
“Free Megan Huntsman!”

Slap it on a bumper sticker. Start the campaign.

Megan Huntsman — every bit the same sort of feminist hero as Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards or Abortion Martyr George Tiller – is being persecuted. Prosecuted and persecuted before our very eyes (in the year 2014!) all for allegedly making a choice. A difficult choice, mind you. An alleged choice that she must have grappled with torturously.

She considered her options and, in the end, came to the conclusion that she wasn’t ready to be a mother. So she terminated her post- Continue reading »

Either yesterday or Monday I was listening to Glenn Beck on the radio and he had a caller who did something I hate.  He made one of those “I blah blah blah, but blah blah.” statements.

Note: I’ll say right now…if you make any argument like that, you don’t really believe either end of the argument.  Its just a way to not have to stand for either side of the topic.  That goes for you anti-baby murderers who say abortion should be banned BUT not in the cases of rape, incest, or the life of the mother.  Either its OK to murder a not yet born human being or its not.  If its not OK to kill an unborn baby then Continue reading »

The following is a post I made on Facebook.  I rarely post duplicate content there and here as well, but I thought this needed spreading far and wide (there is a Common Sense Conversation Facebook page as well):

You folks know that I tend very libertarian. You also know that I believe its damn near time that it will only be an armed revolt that returns the United States to the constitutional democratic republic the founding fathers designed.

You also know that I supported rancher Cliven Bundy in his standoff with the federal government in the person of the Bureau of Land Management.

But I can’t support this…coward… Continue reading »

I’ve been rather late to the game here at Common Sense Conversation about the whole Cliven Bundy – Bundy Ranch – Bureau of Land Management – stolen cattle – Harry Reid corruption thing mainly because as an ongoing, breaking news type of story this blog, read by my average visitor about 2-3 times a week, just wasn’t the appropriate venue to try to keep readers abreast of what was going on.  I did cover it rather extensively at my personal Facebook page…HERE…and on the Common Sense Conversation Facebook page HERE.

Now that the situation is (apparantly) resolved…don’t bet on that…it is time for some reflection on just what happened, why, and what it foretells for the future.  In other words, it is time for Continue reading »
