I tried to watch the Academy Awards with my wife on Sunday night, February 22nd. but I could not get through the entire event. It has been several years since I watched an entire Academy Awards presentation and I now know why.
The organization behind this self-congratulatory left […]
Pope Francis recently commented on fathers and said many good things that would support shared parenting. He extols the “value of fathers” and laments that we have become a “society without fathers.” He pontificates, “The absence of the father figure in the lives of children and young […]
A movie entitled “Old Fashioned” hits theaters this weekend. It is a romantic movie about an old fashioned (go figure) courtship. It is produced in part by the same company that produced “God’s Not Dead,” although judging by their website they don’t exclusively produce “faith based” films. An interesting aspect of the marketing of this […]
One of the secular left’s latest windmills at which to tilt is America’s fanciful “rape culture.” There is a universal ethos of violence against women, as they imagine it, that stems from a millennia-old global patriarchy chiefly derived from religion in general and Judeo-Christianity in particular (another […]
The best predictor of future voting patterns is past voting patterns, to use a twist on a famous maxim. This is probably even truer of groups than individuals, and, despite some wishful thinking to the contrary, this election cycle was no exception. As to this, Silvio Canto […]
For decades we have wrestled with feminism. Too many men and women still say they are feminists on the assumption feminism seeks equality – a prevarication drilled into our heads by feminists for 50 years.

In one of my blog posts on Measure 6, the North Dakota initiative that would establish a presumption of equal parenting in the state, I pointed out that any monetary support given to the opposition (or proponents) by the State Bar […]
All too often, instead of being the keepers of the law, state bar associations flagrantly violate the law instead. They get away with this because they are controlled by powerful judges and affluent left-wing attorneys. Most often, people are too terrified to take on the […]
“There was a time when you knew who the bad girls were,” someone close to me once said. “Now you know who the good girls are.”
And I hear that all three of them are beside themselves over today’s state of affairs.
“Lena Dunham: I Was […]
Guess which gender makes more money?
“Equal pay for equal work!” the mantra goes. “Women get only 73 cents on a man’s dollar!” These are oft-heard slogans, and we may well hear them again during the fall campaign with the War on Women afoot. Now, going beyond […]
It long ago became clear to me that, despite all the pretense, protesting and politicking, no one who has ever seriously thought about equality actually believes in it. When making this case, one could point to how Eric Holder’s DOJ is currently suing the Pennsylvania State Police […]
The Washington Free Beacon, in June, reviewed newly discovered audio recordings of Hillary Clinton. The recordings, dubbed the Hillary Tapes by the press, were from the time period of 1983-1987. In these recordings, Hillary discusses representing a 41 year old male who was accused of raping a […]
That was, in part, how former First Lady / U.S. Senator / Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that business owners with religious objections can refuse to pay for health insurance policies that cover contraception.
“I obviously disagree” […]
