It has long (in my thinking) been the case that pitiful little men like Victor Davis Hanson, Gary Bauer, Clay and BucKO, Jesse Waters, Kilmeade, Hannity et al and the army of pseudo-conservatives posing as “men” over at the Fox “News” Channel, and such other timid shelters, are the sweet little tulips of manhood that are great authors of nonsense simply because honor and honesty are less profitable and often require great strength.
Like the tulips that they are, they feed off of manure. So, they produce pretty colors and they smell good. But that’s about it.
Oak trees get nature’s treatment. They are fed from the soil which is in turn fed with rain and lightning.
But from strong oak comes men like Jackson, Lee and Davis, even courageous Yankees like MacArthur, Patton and Eisenhower; all beautiful and emboldened with honor, and structured with strength---colors and smells be damned.
Paul Yarbrough has written several pieces over the last few years for_ The Blue State Conservative, NOQ, The Daily Caller, Communities Digital News, American Thinker, The Abbeville Institute, Lew Rockwell _and perhaps two or three others.
