Winning the Cultural War

Share

(This talk given by Charlton Heston in February 1999, has aged well. It is worth remembering.) I remember my son when he was five, explaining to his kindergarten class what his father did for a living. “My Daddy,” he said, “pretends to be people.” There have been quite a few of them. Prophets from the Old and New Testaments, a…

My Personal Declaration of Belief

Share

These things I do believe, a living document. I believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost; as separate and distinct individuals; unified in thought and purpose.

Share

Dear David I think you are a smart young man. Some people my age may try to say that teenagers are too inexperienced to be considered wise or smart. I disagree.

The right to life.

Share

“They have as much right to live as anything else! Really? I first heard this phrase a decade or two ago in a discussion about the reintroduction of wolves to the Yellowstone ecosystem. It confused me. Accordingly, I have thought about the phrase off and on ever since. Last week I happened across a petition protesting the legal hunting of…

Donna Brazile, “Hacks,” and the 2020 election.

Share

Donna Brazile in her book “Hacks,” details the Russian hacking of the DNC servers, the relationship between the DNC and the Clinton campaign, and puts forth some ideas about the DNC’s failure to get Hillary elected. (And yes, I did read the whole thing.) For me, there really weren’t any big surprises. Hacks allows the reader a glimpse into the…
