Horse Sense at the Arivaca Boys Ranch

Horse Sense at the Arivaca Boys Ranch

If you want to help kids, don’t join a grievance-mongering protest group and campaign for social justice – just help the kids. That’s what Ron Searle did, when he started the non-profit Arivaca Boys Ranch. Ron had worked with young men for over 20 years as a teacher, in church-related and Boy Scout activities. More recently, he had been developing a therapeutic program for kids, involving the care of horses. Risky as it was to leave his profession; Searle’s heart drove him to develop this program, and to implement it in a ranch setting for young men. Several years ago, Ron received funding, and began looking for a ranch location. He ended up procuring some land in Arivaca, Arizona. Only a couple miles north of the Mexican border, miles off the closest highway, the cattle ranch comprised about 350 acres. With his partners, he built up the facilities, and set to work. These days, there are a couple-dozen boys staying at Arivaca at any given time. Altogether so far, Ron and his...

Random Thoughts from an NYC Young Black Conservative

Random Thoughts from an NYC Young Black Conservative

Here are some random thoughts on the passing scene from someone not nearly as smart as Dr. Thomas Sowell: The only reason Hillary Clinton is considered a viable presidential contender is because she is a womenses. The only two reasons Elizabeth Warren is considered a viable presidential contender are being a womenses and because some people have deluded themselves into thinking Hillary Clinton isn’t a rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth Leftist. Democrats know that if Hillary Clinton doesn’t run for president in 2016, they are screwed. Considering my previous random thought, what does this tell you about the state of the Democrat Party? People who make a living telling themselves and anyone who will listen that Sarah Palin is a moron also believe Bill Clinton didn’t have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinski. Insert line about a pot and a kettle and calling it black, which has to be racist, or something … Eric Garner is dead at the hands of five police officers after he resisted arrest for selling untaxed...

Thomas Sowell Brings the World into Focus through an Economics Lens

Thomas Sowell Brings the World into Focus through an Economics Lens

This week, on the latest installment of Uncommon Knowledge, Dr. Thomas Sowell of the Hoover Institution sits down with host Peter Robinson. He’s plugging his latest publication, which is actually the fifth edition of his classic work, Basic Economics. Dr. Sowell makes economics readable and understandable. He takes a machete to the clichés and abstractions of the day in a no-nonsense manner. Take a look at this interview, and be warned … you just might learn...

Coronation for Hillary? Not So Fast!

Coronation for Hillary? Not So Fast!

If you listen to the punditocracy both left and right, you would think Hillary Clinton as the next president was a forgone conclusion and elections a mere formality.   Now where have we heard that kind of talk before? If you answered “2008”, you win the $64,000 question. Let’s for a moment set aside from the fact that the Hillary coronation was supposed to happen in 2008, before a no-name first-term Senator from the cesspool of American politics upended her sure-thing and relegated her to being yesterday’s news. She blew her moment by behaving entitled to it and not getting into gear when Comrade Obama caught up to her in the polls. Now, we’re being told that it’s her moment all over again. Let’s not get played for suckers, again, people. Now you may say that the urge to elect the first woman president will help her. It might. But then again, the Left has a new darling. That’s right, folks, Hillary will not have exclusive domain of being the...
