Prosperity is closely linked to freedom-based public policies. If we want to grow and provide more opportunities in Mississippi, then let’s take the path that makes it easy to start a job, open a business, earn a side income, invest capital, serve customers, compete with incumbent businesses, and keep more of what we earn.

When all is said and done, we are all descended from immigrants, which means that all native Americans, including those called “Native Americans,” have ancestors who were not native Americans. As a native Englishman who is the husband of a native American and the father of native American children, I don’t need a DNA test to discover or verify my true identity.

Mississippi’s biggest problems aren’t going to be solved by party politics, racial identity politics or continuing corporate cronyism. Centralized government has to be removed from the equation entirely.

We are witnessing storm troopers in cyber-space “pulling the plug” on those whose voices they refuse to tolerate. If something is not done to protect freedom of speech on the internet we will be entering a new reign of intolerance in which only “approved” sites will be accessible.

The Constitution guarantees the right to religious exercise, but absolutely nowhere guarantees any rights whatsoever to those who practice homosexuality. You can read the Constitution from front to back, from back to front, upside down and in Sanskrit and you will find nary a mention of homosexuality. But the right to the free exercise of religious liberty is the first thing you run into in the Bill of Rights. When imaginary gay “rights” conflict with explicit constitutional rights, gay “rights” must yield.

When they went they were surrounded by the finest men and women on this earth — their buddies — who desperately tried to save their lives while holding their hands and comforted them, prayed with them, listened to all the little stories about their families and their homes…until they were gone. They were not alone and when the spirit left them and God in his infinite wisdom took them to his bosom, their military family lovingly wrapped them in whatever passed for a shroud and sent them home.

Vitter’s time at Ole Miss has been controversial as the influence of the William Winter Institute at the university has stirred racial discord on campus and between students. Just a few hours after the Ole Miss Rebels made headlines for beating Texas A&M to land a spot in the SEC Tournament championship, University of Mississippi […]

We have to pick ourselves up by the back of the neck and shake ourselves; then we will find that we can do what we believed we were unable to do. The problem that most of us are cursed with is simply that we won’t. The Christian life is one of spiritual courage and determination lived out in our flesh.
