The Constitution – An Idea

The Constitution is an idea. It is the aim, purpose, and vision of these great United States. It is also a concise document. As initially written and ratified, the Constitution of the United States consists of 4618 words (including signatures) arranged into seven articles. There have been 27 amendments to the original document, not all…

Revisiting the Declaration of Independence

Let us revisit the Declaration of Independence for a moment. Each of us knows deep down inside that we are created equal and that your God (whomever that might be) has given you certain fundamental rights that cannot be taken away, no matter what. These Rights are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. So,…

Q & A: Questionable Employee Social Media Posts

I was recently asked my opinion regarding questionable employee social media posts. Such posts can complicate things. Let us explore this for a moment. Question Posed: “How do you handle staff who post/share racist things on their personal social media (Anti refugee, immigrant, LGBTQ kinda stuff)? Not trying to start any arguments, just wondering if…

An Ethical Question: Can the Ends Justify the Means

This article needs to be presented as an analogy. Not because the concept is hard to grasp but because the idea itself is probably a perspective that is hard to look at and hard to answer. My work is not about taking the easy way out as far as our thoughts and decisions go. Ethical…

Has the Constitution Failed Us?

I have a LOT of respect for anyone who fights for liberty. Undoubtedly, many who subscribe to socialism, anarchism, or even democracy believe they are doing just that.

20 Things Both Cops and Citizens Should Know

Truths about Laws and Their Enforcement

The Militia: A Few Words and Things to Consider

Perception is a substantial piece of the overall picture, sometimes, I suppose. I was doing some research lately and stumbled upon a website called TRAC – or Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium, an interesting site that helps shed light on targets of interest and perhaps even responsible parties regarding terrorist activities. However, as I scrolled…

A Sad State of Affairs – Is Ignorance Winning?

I read a post today on social media suggesting that “the Constitution was written by white people – for white people,” and continued by saying that “white people are treated better than any other race on the planet.” Aside from being sad, it’s just not accurate – either now or historically. In fact, it breaks…

Is There Really A Police State?

Do you feel as though law enforcement enforces unconstitutional laws? Do law enforcement officers seem a little overzealous in exercising their perceived authority? What do you feel when you see a cop behind you? Chances are that the majority of you will answer these questions in a negative light. This even includes those who currently…
