The Failing Promise of Public Education

Joseph C. Phillips

By Joseph C. Phillips – We, the American public, hold it as an article of faith that those responsible for devising and implementing public policy have our best interests at heart. Our best minds are hard at work, striving to make the world a better place. Our elected officials are dedicated to protecting our freedoms, [...]

Fed-Up With The Transportation Safety Administration – Joseph C. Phillips

Joseph C. Phillips

I arrived at the Los Angeles Airport more than an hour early.  I had made good time on the highway.  I wasn’t checking any bags, so with my boarding pass in hand I proceeded to the gate.  I was greeted with a security line that was almost an hour long.  The line snaked around the [...]

Social Security Reform: The New Radicalism

Joseph C. Phillips

by Joseph C. Phillips – There is, perhaps, no better testament to how far this nation has drifted from the principles of individual liberty, free markets, and private property than that those proponents of real reform of the Social Security system are now looked upon as radicals.

The Absurdity of the Racialist Playbook

Joseph C. Phillips

by Joseph C. Phillips – The absurdity of race continues to rear its ugly head and once again, the succubus appears in Mississippi.

For this particular gentleman, being black in America is at odds with conservatism. As he put it: “…Particularly as African-Americans, I feel we are in [...]

Tolerance and the Mosque near WTC site

Joseph C. Phillips

J.C. Phillips – I am fascinated that the same people who have been able to find a Constitutional right to government control of education, healthcare, and the energy industry are unable to divine from that same document any rational basis for the government to prevent a mosque from being built on Ground Zero.

Joseph C. Phillips
