Justice for Sister Cathy: The Keepers

Justice for Sister Cathy: The Keepers

Current Affairs, Legal, Media
First published on Salisbury News As many of you know from my previous writings, criminal injustice has always found a soft spot in my psyche, largely because I generally believe in our Rule of Law. A program on Netflix, once again, has struck a chord within me because the grave miscarriage of our justice system stirs even for the most hardened of hearts. Sister Catherine Cesnik is probably a name many of you haven't heard of before. Her tale actually began and ended many decades ago. Close to 48 years ago, she was brutally murdered and many believe it was priests in her own parish who either orchestrated, planned and/or executed the egregious murder. Most importantly was not how she died but the following cover up by the Baltimore Archdiocese that makes this crime even more unsettli...
Conscience of a Conservative

Conscience of a Conservative

Book Reviews
While it's not customary to review a 57-year-old book, in this case I made an exception because its contents were far more important and tandem to our current situation as it was in 1960. It is a visionary assessment of what it means to be a real conservative. As many of you know, Republican Senator Barry Goldwater ran for president in 1964 against incumbent, Lyndon Johnson. The Democrats and media, true to form, painted him as a war monger, poised to use the atom bomb. Due to the battle fatigue many held from two back-to-back World Wars, many turned away from the traditional viewpoints and sought to re-elect Johnson. It was in this campaign the infamous Ronald Reagan speech, A Time For Choosing, aired on television for Goldwater's campaign, which now receives much attention for its own

Is It Time To Go 1787 on Academia?

Over the last few weeks, colleges like Emory have declared that, like sanctuary cities, they will become safe havens for illegal aliens; thus, providing cover for illegals to avert federal law enforcement agencies and continue to live in America. One thing academia seems to forget is, unless they're private institutions (and even then there's still some gray areas) they depend on federal monies to fill their already overflowing coffers. Like those cities, is it time to cut the proverbial fiscal cord and let them dangle in the wind? Perhaps they should look to their on-staff historians (professors) for counsel about just what's in that crazy ruling document we also call the United States Constitution. As it seems, Academia has now joined the mayhem of immigration enforcement on the premi...
Progressive Racism

Progressive Racism

Book Reviews, Education, Government
Progressive Racism takes an honest look at the relationship between Liberalism and Racism in American culture. Penned by David Horowitz, this well organized book contains arguments and substantiating examples of how this relationship has been a long-running theme within Liberals' efforts to divide America into racial compartments, while pitting one against the others. This tapestry has been weaving since Reconstruction and continues to this day - from the KKK formation in the 1800s to the current day Black Lives Matter groups, the Liberals continue to propagate a dangerous propaganda that continues to weave it's ugly threads throughout our society. Hence, this nefarious interwoven relationship has wrongly galvanized the Democrat party as some social justice warrior team rather than the ...
Johnson’s Great Society

Johnson’s Great Society

History, Issues, Presidential
When we think of the Sixties, we usually think of 1968 - a year of complete transformation of America in and its social sphere. Yet, many looking back, find the legislature passed by Lyndon B. Johnson has brought much unrest to our 'now.' The sweeping welfare reform introduced and passed into law has caused many problems over the years. Some ascertain it was an answer after the shock of JFK's assassination. In fact, Johnson's passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 was originally legislation Kennedy was working on before he was struck down in Texas. The point of the CRA was to outlaw Jim Crow throughout America; eradicating segregation. While Johnson did sign the bill, it wasn't until Richard Nixon when the actual laws were enacted via the Supreme Court. For starters, it was the ...

Should Johnny Really Go To College?

By Thornton Crowe Published on Salisbury News Little story. A few years ago, I needed an electrician to fix a faulty outside electrical socket after a hard rain. After much calling around (even to my neighbor who is an electrician,) I found getting this simple 10 minute task would have to wait for three weeks to get done. Finally, I found Mr. Bradshaw. He came over and fixed the socket, (bringing parts with so no down time)! Calling around was the biggest investment of my time that day -- over two hours of answering machines and Suzy automation. Sadly, Mr. Bradshaw passed away in 2013. Now what? If you're a homeowner, you know finding people skilled in plumbing and electricity is very hard - especially on the Eastern Shore -- and quite expensive. While Bradshaw was very reasonable, ...
