Correct Me If I’m Wrong

“The Wisdom of The Wise,” by Andrew Joppa

  The use of quotations has been described in many ways.  One cynical writer offered that, “They are the last refuge of the ignorant.” Of course, he was building that thought upon another quotation from Samuel Johnson. I prefer to align with Benjamin Disraeli’s view that, “The wisdom of the wise, the experience of the ages, are perpetuated by quotations.”    …

Constitution Day Sunday, September 17, 2023, by Andrew Joppa

We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution. Abraham Lincoln   Tomorrow, September 17th is Constitution Day.  It is this date, the day The Constitution was ratified in 1787, that represents the actual moment that this great nation came into being.  …

When You Hear It’s for The Greater Good…RUN, by Andrew Joppa

    “For the greater good”: the phrase that always precedes the greatest evil.” ― Jakub Bożydar Wiśniewski   We must try to understand where the Left derives its leverage to “have its way” with America. If we cannot break this stranglehold the Left maintains because of it…we can never save America. Their method is quite simple, but deadly effective. They present …

“Keep-ing” America, by Andrew Joppa

  Over the past few weeks, I’ve felt little incentive to invest my time in a futile effort to offer something of value about America. If there were unknowns, or if ideas were prompting significant action, then and only then, would it seem purposeful to use a few hours of my time (and twenty minutes of yours) to move the process …

Stupidity: The Enemy of The Good, By Andrew Joppa

  Dietrich Bonhoffer, in his Letters and Papers from Prison, offered what might be considered The Rosetta Stone that defines the source of almost all American problems. He wrote, and I submit his comment in its entirety:   “Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than malice. One may protest against evil; it can be exposed and, if need be, prevented …

An American Hero: Robert F. Kennedy Jr., by Andrew Joppa

  I have a new hero in the battle for America. He doesn’t displace my leading hero, Donald James Trump, but he has become a heroic figure, nevertheless. We are not legally or morally limited to choosing only one hero. In this essay I will speak of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. I’ll start with the obligatory and obvious…we do not have to …

The CIA: Haspel, Olson, and JFK, by Andrew Joppa

    Before I plunge into the body of this essay that will deal with the CIA, its murder of Frank Olson, and their potential involvement in the JFK assassination, I need your help. I simply ask, “Where in the world is Gina Haspel, former director of the CIA?” In December of 2020 she became the subject of what was called …

The Causes of America’s Problems, Andrew Joppa

  As I sit down to put fingers to computer keys, it becomes increasingly difficult to offer anything of value. I know this doesn’t stop other writers from making their living by doing this every day but, since I’m the lower price spread, I concern myself with this type of consideration. It has become quite apparent that each day presents us …

The Long March Towards Mediocrity, by Andrew Joppa

  With the recent Supreme Court ruling eliminating race as a basis for college admission and presuming this ruling will have extended implications in other environments for the future, I thought that some thoughts on the unconstitutional concept of Affirmative Action were in order. I have found that most of the discussions on this topic tend to produce more heat …

The Theater of The American Absurd, by Andrew Joppa

    “Civility and political correctness, contrary to the thinking of many, are not the same. Civility constrains behavior and words based on genuine caring about others, while political correctness is only a facade of caring while hoping to cultivate public approval.” ― Ben Carson   What follows should seem to be absurd…and it is. If you don’t find it …
