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.

A New COVID Symptom: Writer’s Cramp

It’s been a tough mental slog producing anything resembling quality, well-thought out content over the past couple of weeks.  Not because of writer’s block, and certainly not because of lack of current affairs upon which to opine or offer critical analysis.  In fact,...

The American Crisis, Part 1

The American Crisis, Part 1

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 since we...

I Can Be Normal . . . Just For One Day

I get to wear my other “mask” this Wednesday, for the first time since late February.  To catch my newest readers up-to-speed: I’m in the music business, by trade.  In addition to managing artists, I’ve also been playing trumpet and singing professionally for over 40...

They’re Lying To Us. Here’s Exactly How They Do It.

They’re Lying To Us. Here’s Exactly How They Do It.

Today’s Headlines, Tomorrow’s Fears

Today’s Headlines, Tomorrow’s Fears

There are just too many things on my mind, and my chest is heavy with concerns about not just my own future, but the future I’m leaving my children.  Scanning the headlines yesterday and today has not been a particularly healthy psychological endeavor. Some random...

COVID-19 Is Less Deadly Than Seasonal Flu, For Most

For most age groups, and most worldwide demographics . . . this is apparently the case.  Rather than implementing strategies for protecting those for whom this is not the case, we have destroyed our economy, unprecedentedly quarantined our healthy population,...

The Feds Take Portland?

The Feds Take Portland?

Rarely, (but it does happen), do I catch flak for that which I haven’t yet said.  Over the past several days, I’m getting both private messages and comments on unrelated threads about my silence on the recent happenings in Portland.  Specifically, “Where’s your...

Turn Off Your A/C — Stop the ‘Rona Spread

I truly wish this was a joke, but it’s not.  No more so than the recent admonition that we should wear masks while having sex.  (Condoms, optional.)  This is just the world in which we now live. This idea isn’t a new idea.  All the way back in April, “researchers”...

Is Congress Invulnerable to COVID-19?

Is Congress Invulnerable to COVID-19?

In a moment of curiosity during the holiday weekend, I asked myself why no members of Congress have yet died of #CommieVirus2020?  At the onset of the pandemic scare, there were several MSM articles published stating the vulnerability of Congressional members —...
