Labeling President Barack Hussain Obama

Share

Yesterday in a Town Hall meeting, Donald Trump was asked a question in which the interrogator referred to President Obama as a Muslim and referred to the never ending fallacy concerning our President’s citizenship. A question, I might add, which The Donald seemed to enjoy and failed to correct. Come on people, it is time for this uninformed foolishness to…

Ms. Davis and Jackboots

Share

Currently, there are several analogies on social media trying, and failing, to sound enlightened. The bumper sticker stories are about a woman who does not eat pork so she gets a job at a place that serves pork to ensure no one else can eat it either. The analogies are targeted at Ms. Davis, the Kentucky County Clerk who refuses…

Have gun will travel, with a little help.

Share

In light of tragic murders, the debate on Gun Control is once again being forcefully put before the public. The gun culture is so ingrained in our national consciousness and so emotionally charged on both sides of the issue, that it took a Frenchman to write a decent synopsis with some logical conclusions. “Both sides are wrong on the gun debate.…

Exodus 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. It probably started with your mother, most likely your parents. Other relatives, a grandparent perhaps, also contributed. Definitely in school you were taught. You tried it anyway and hurt people that you cared for. If we get caught on job applications we know bad things can happen. When you…

Whack-a-Mole: A conspiracy theory

Share

It is getting so that every election cycle a new grass roots movement pops up just like some whack-a-mole game. It started right after President Obama first took office in January 2009. Let’s start in Chicago when Rick Santelli called for a tea party to protest a liberal Obama agenda. It caught on. Soon tea party protests were being held…

My flirtation with the political left.

Share

Being an old man from a small Republican town in Idaho, I find Damon Linker fascinating. A couple of years ago, I found a love for The Week magazine. The magazine brought me into contact with the writings of Damon Linker, Pascal-Emanuel Gobry, Elizabeth Stoker Bruenig and others. They argue world events, politics and life using quotes and philosophical arguments…

The Noble Abortion

Share

Recently, there have been some rather disturbing videos surrounding Planned Parenthood. I am sure you have heard or seen them. They are surreptitious videos of Planned Parenthood doctors and administrators discussing the sale and separation of baby (fetus) body parts. There are more to come but they have been temporarily blocked by a California court. The videos have brought the…

Adulthood, Sex and Guns

I was recently trading ideas with a “progressive” friend of mine. During our conversation, she continually referred to a woman’s “reproductive rights.” As I have thought about our conversation, this term has come into focus as a bit misleading. Admittedly, it has been some time ago but, I took an anthropology class in which we discussed the rights of adulthood…
