by Robin Elliott on October 24, 2014

If I wanted to murder my South African high school English teacher, I could easily do it by getting her to commit suicide. Of course I would never do that, because I loved my English teacher. She was an alcoholic who stank of cigarette smoke, drank during class from a bottle of brandy she kept […]

If you’re tired of believing everything the Western Media tells you, look at this: First, let’s put apartheid as a system into perspective. Do we know how many blacks were killed under apartheid?

by Robin Elliott on September 5, 2014

Napoleon Hill said more men were destroyed and futures lost through illicit sex. I think the “I’m not ready yet” response to life’s challenges, opportunities, and solutions runs a very close second. Ayn Rand put it this way: “I can accept anything, except what seems to be the easiest for most people: the half-way, the […]

Pride Comes Before the Fall

Confidence is not arrogance. So when Rush Limbaugh, for whom I actually have a lot of respect, calls the American Health Care System “The greatest healthcare system in the world,” he joins those who have no problem calling every police force in America “the greatest police force in the world” – confidence turned into extreme […]
