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...

A Thanksgiving Story: Don’t Fall Prey to Progressive Sin!

A Thanksgiving Story: Don’t Fall Prey to Progressive Sin!

“How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? He’d chuck as much wood as a woodchuck could if a woodchuck could chuck wood.” I know it’s an old tongue-twister, but there’s a lesson to be learned here – and it’s not a mind twister. Some people – e.g. LEFTISTS – will never be satisfied no matter how much you give them. They will always find a way to want, to need, to deserve more of what you have. They will always want you keep less and use less of whatever they deem you ought to sacrifice. Having stuff and using stuff is the original progressive sin. I couldn’t help but notice this over Thanksgiving. It was a good day – I ignored all of Obama’s crap for the whole day. You know, there was a time when I went months or years without ever having to think of the federal government. It didn’t interfere much, back then. Good times, good times. Anyway, Thanksgiving morning,...

Stand Down, Ferguson

Stand Down, Ferguson

Okay, Fergie, I’m calling it – stand down and listen up. You were a fool to dump Officer Wilson for Michael Brown.   If only you’d had a little faith, you could have saved yourself a lot of heart-ache! First, you fell for Reverend Wormtongue’s racism shtick.  If he thinks he can take down a white cop over the body of a young black man, he’ll do it – right or wrong, truth be damned. He’s a race hustler – it fills his coffers and makes him look like a big man to his constituents. It didn’t help when your own Chief of Police, and the Attorney General of the United States, chimed in against Officer Wilson, as if he just went and shot poor black Michael for no reason. They were not here to protect you, but to protect themselves and their agendas, truth be damned. They are race hustlers too – they need black votes, and they’ll pander to anyone to get them. These people call for restraint...

Obama and the Whale

Obama and the Whale

Most of us have heard of the story of Jonah, recounted in the Bible, in the Book of Jonah. Jonah was a great prophet of the northern kingdom of Israel. Jonah was told by the Lord to go to Nineveh, a pagan Mesopotamian city on the eastern bank of the Tigris River. At that time, Nineveh, the Capital of Ashur, “Assyria,” was Israel’s greatest enemy. It was a wicked place. It would be like walking into Mosul today, with ISIS in charge. In fact, that’s exactly where Mosul is today – in and about the ancient city of Nineveh. It was run by the Assyrian regime, as brutal then as the Islamist terrorists are today: This was the largest empire yet seen in the world; and it got there using a new military weapon: terror. The Assyrian army was notorious for its brutality, and the Assyrians themselves made sure their enemies knew about their reputation. Their powerful bows, battering rams, and archers on horseback were also effective; but mutilation...

A Few Minutes on ’13 Hours in Benghazi’

A Few Minutes on ’13 Hours in Benghazi’

Bret Baier presented 13 Hours in Benghazi Thursday evening. It was a masterful exposition of the situation on the ground during that long, infamous night of September 11, 2012. But even more importantly, we got to meet the men, and their families, representing those who selflessly put their lives on the line to save dozens of their brethren. Finally, two years later, we know exactly who these heroes are, where they were, and what they were doing the night of the Benghazi attack. We still have no idea where the United States was — or the President, for that matter — in their defense, that terrible night. The three who lived to tell the story: Mark (Oz) Geist, Kris (Tanto) Paronto, and John (Tig) Tiegen. Be forewarned: it’s harrowing, and it’s heartbreaking. But it must be heard. Benghazi is not a scandal – it’s a tragedy of personal heroism and institutional cowardice. When the Benghazi consulate was attacked, these men literally ran into the fire. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton, author of the Libya...
