For all the talk of a "tipping point," I was unconvinced any such was at hand...until the Bundy standoff. We must save ourselves right now. There will be no further chances.
As usual, well-reasoned. I have but one quibble: we really do have "de-facto amnesty," and will continue to have it until: 1) the borders are genuinely secured; 2) harsh penalties are put in place for employing an illegal alien. I have no idea what legislative price the GOP will have to pay to get thost things; clearly, there are some prices far too high to pay. But the first step is to retake the Senate. After that, popular sentiment must be marshaled to make border security a top priority for our legislators, right up there with restoring the national defense. Will it happen? Possibly not until the Oval Office has been cleansed of Obama. But we shall see.
There's no hope in any effort to reform the Main Stream Media. Consider it a Democrat Party annex and be done with it. Turn to the alternatives, encourage others to do the same, and help to expand them however you can.

"It's a fair point that conservatives should be more conspicuously concerned about racism." We are conspicuously concerned! It's overwhelmingly a component of American blacks' attitudes toward American whites, and we (whites) are getting pretty damned sick of it!
Those are fascinating correlations. Are there any surveys of opinion, particularly among American blacks and Milliennials, that might substantiate a causal connection?
"His lack of contrition...is unconscionable..." That's no problem for a man with no conscience -- and in the case of Barack Hussein Obama, the finest scientific instruments available would fail to detect one.
Another difference is that all the things you cite above are PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS, owned by private citizens or their entirely voluntary organizations. There's no coercion involved. That's a Brobdingnagian-sized difference -- and ultimately, the only one that matters.

Obama Tackled in the End Zone

This is nothing out of the ordinary. Obama and his agenda have nothing to run on but image, so he labors continuously to create and maintain a favorable image -- at any rate, more favorable than that of his opposition. He won't persuade anyone who isn't already in his corner.
Kraft Foods is watching you, Mr. Starnes. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
A beautiful essay. It goes deep into the heart of the greatest problem afflicting the sincere Christian: *unbelief*, our tendency to confine our faith and its implications to a small part of our lives and keep the rest secular, wittingly or not. The father in Caesaria Philippi cried out "O Lord I believe; help thou mine unbelief." He had not sufficient conviction that his daughter could be healed before Christ Himself arrived and did so. He wanted to be convinced. In some ways, so do we all. But conviction comes from the acceptance of God's infinite love and mercy -- and it need not wait for a demonstration.
