THE PRAGMATIC CONSTITUTIONALIST’S BLOG

Show me five votes made by Rand Paul with which you disagree, and I’ll show you 300 hundred you support. Anyone who votes for liberty with over 95% consistency is an ally — not a sell-out.  Further, he’s actually “in the game.”  Not just some keyboard critic.

 

Anti-Establishment Types Now Want BIG-Establishment

Anti-Establishment Types Now Want BIG-Establishment

Remember when it was cool to be “anti-establishment?” In the 1960s, antiestablishmentarianism found its footing in the United States as a reaction to the Vietnam War, manifesting itself demonstrably with “Make Love, Not War” hippies, “Turn on, tune in, drop out” LSD...

One Of Those Days

One Of Those Days

Today is one of those. Yesterday was one. Tomorrow, likely the same. There’s no shortage of news items upon which I want to blather about. In fact, too many. That’s a problem for me. If only there was a giant, planet-killing asteroid hurtling in collision course...

Trust The Experts . . . But Not THOSE Experts!

Trust The Experts . . . But Not THOSE Experts!

At the moment of this posting . . . 4,726 Medical & Public Health Scientists and 8,838 Medical Practitioners — coming from both the left and right of the political spectrum, and from around the world — have signed The Great Barrington Declaration open petition...

America First

America First

Why is it most all granola-crunching progressives, (and a significantly large percentage of libertarians), get all creamy when they see restaurant menus that virtue-signal their “Locally-Sourced Ingredients" and also share all those “Shop Local” memes — but, any...

The Trumps Have The ‘Rona

The Trumps Have The ‘Rona

  Waking to the announcement that the President and First Lady have tested positive for COVID-19 was an emotional nothing-burger for me. Then, I launched my social media feeds. Wow. My first thought — when I woke at 3am and saw the alert on my phone, (and before...

Masks, Always . . . And Forever?

Masks, Always . . . And Forever?

  We’ve all seen the contrasting images and memes.  First, that of a well socially-distanced mother at a middle school football game being arrested for not wearing a mask. Her plight, juxtaposed against the photos of Dr. Fauci and his wife sitting unmasked at...

Living Sound, Team IV – The Road to Moscow, Prologue

Prologue One of the more satisfying things I’ve experienced in hosting this page has been the incredible outpouring of response to our recent posts about the life of Dr. Terry Law. Terry was the father of my partner here at The Pragmatic Constitutionalist, Scot Law....

I Told You So . . . Back In March

I Told You So . . . Back In March

And here you have it, folks. The biggest “I TOLD YOU SO” in my 10-year history writing for this Page. Straight from the CDC’s own “Current Best Estimate” of COVID-19’s “Infection Fatality Ratio": 0-19 years: 0.00003 = 99.997% survivability 20-49 years: 0.0002 = 99.98%...

The American Crisis, Part 2

The American Crisis, Part 2

  TPC Guest:  “A Chatterer” A note about “A Chatterer” - None of these are my words. As we watch America fall to pieces, I often can’t help but wish that her Founders could be here to guide us. They were prolific writers of anonymous letters and pamphlets, and...

Terry Law Story

Terry Law Story

A couple weeks ago I introduced you to my behind-the-scenes partner, Scot Law.  Sadly, the occasion of that introduction was prompted by the unexpected passing of his father, Terry Law. I also used that announcement to tell a couple stories of Terry’s decades-long...

Road-trippin’ & Cigar-smokin’ Through The ‘Rona

Road-trippin’ & Cigar-smokin’ Through The ‘Rona

I haven’t been traveling much, lately.  Not since The ‘Rona came to town.  The road always inspires me to write.  Fresh observations and new experiences make it even easier to comment upon the news of the day.  40 years of road life keeps my mind clear.  I’m missing...
