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.…

The Media, Good, Bad and Often Ugly

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…

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…

Reconciliation of Science and Religion

Share

Fossils of man in his present form are dated as being 150,000 years old. What we refer to civilization has existed for about 6,000 years. Assuming that the genealogies laid out in the Bible are complete and that modern scientific dating practices are valid, then Adam and Eve left the Garden of Eden not at the advent of man on this…

A return to Segregation

Share

The current book on my Kindle is “Enough” by Juan Williams. I haven’t finished it yet but he is making some very interesting arguments which are causing me to evaluate the changes that I have seen in race relations since my coming of age in the late 60’s and early 70’s. That is roughly forty five years ago. Meanwhile, I…

A new flag of tyranny

Today, my Whitehouse is decorated with rainbow lights. It celebrates the Supreme Court of the United States declaration that same sex marriage is now legal in all 50 states. Today, my Whitehouse is decorated with rainbow lights. President Obama said “Americans should be very proud,” because small acts of courage “slowly made an entire country realize that love is love”…

The modern hobby of choice, taking offense.

Share

We have become very thin skinned. Today’s political correctness would have us believe that American Indians are offended to have a pro-ball team named after them. Furthermore, we have recently, and evidently unsuccessfully, gone through a variety of terms to identify Americans with black skin in ways that are not offensive; we can’t say “Islamic Extremists” for fear of implicating…

Death and memoriam

Share

Just over a year ago, my mother passed away at the age of 79. She had been sick for about 3 months. Having visited several doctors she was unable to find the cause of the weakness and difficulties that she was experiencing. A three time cancer survivor she started to notice a similarity between the way that she was feeling…

Preview: Currently working on Global Warming

Share

I have been putting it off for some time now but, at last the time has come. The Left says man made or, man enhanced, global warming is proven and that there is no longer any doubt. As a result, great cataclysmic events are in our immediate future if we don’t address the problem immediately. Any scientist that dares to…
