The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

Make Mine Freedom


Here's the Nonsense:  There's always something new and better to write about.

Here's the Horse Sense:  Sometimes, no matter what I may see or read, something comes along that is so good in its message that the best thing to do is just pass it on.

This week a friend sent me a link to an amazing video of a cartoon made in 1948 called "Make Mine Freedom."  That little video said so much in about 9 ½ minutes that I felt that the best use of this space this week would be to simply pass it along to you.  If every American could watch and understand this message the future of our nation would be assured.
