An article I wrote twenty years ago described the Internet as America’s next frontier. And for the past twenty years, it has been a wide-open, innovative, constantly changing — and yes, somewhat unruly – frontier. But all that may have changed with the Federal Communication Commission’s recent announcement […]
THIS IS AMERICA! This was the mantra of generations after the establishment of the United States of America. Our history shows that this nation was built with grit, toughness, a do it yourself and a get it done attitude. Sure, like any other great or not so great […]
The West African Ebola epidemic is winding down with only one case confirmed in Liberia last month. In Guinea new cases continue to emerge, but at a reduced rate compared to last year’s peak. The exponential increase in Ebola cases seen last summer is over – the rate […]
Announcing his 2016 presidential run at Liberty University last month, Ted Cruz, the first out of the starting gate, excited fiscal conservatives with his call for a flat tax to replace the IRS. Support for the concept has been picking up steam recently, due to the […]
Early man was like a house wired for light, but for a long time was in darkness; then a switch was thrown, and the house was full of light.
Humans became conscious beings; conscious of their own existence, their own mortality, and their own actions.
That sums up Chapter 2 of Genesis, which goes back […]
On Tuesday, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul announced he was officially entering the Republican primary race for president. He is the second candidate to announce after Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

God put the Republican Party on earth to cut taxes. If they don’t do that, they have no useful function. ~ Robert Novak

VEVAK [i] (Farsi: Vezarat-e Ettela’at va Amniat-e Keshvar) is the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (abb.: MOIS) of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Its principal occupation is intelligence, but unlike the CIA—its rough American equivalent—VEVAK also functions much like the FBI; in effect, VEVAK operates very similarly to the Soviet Union’s KGB. Within VEVAK there […]
Day Six is an account of the ‘programming’ of human DNA to form the neurological structures in the brain that give us the ability to distinguish between right and wrong.
It explains why the human brain has three distinct faculties – morality, reason and instinct. The interaction between these neurological faculties is what accounts for […]
For many years, it was considered highly enviable to attend an Ivy League or other top rated university. Graduates enjoyed social prestige and better job opportunities.

North Carolina utility monopolies such as Duke Energy Carolinas and Dominion North Carolina Power have planted a poison pill in a piece of legislation designed to provide more energy choice and energy independence in North Carolina.
Publicly, the utilities are opposing the bill to prevent the innovative third-party-owned […]
If there is one thing that many American citizens are missing today, it is a appreciation for the constitution. Not just as a document, but as something greater that was created for a specific purpose. What is missing is an understanding of the reasons behind the different […]
The size of the federal government has exploded over the last century. The legislative and judicial branches of government have grown to serve the increased number of states and their growing populations. The size and scope of the executive branch has grown to reflect an expanded role […]
One of the most distinguished apologists of our era says that the most profound inquiry we can undertake is, “What is truth?” One theologian furnished this clarity, “Truth is who God is,” – referring to the God of the Bible. The Bible describes the human heart as deceitful […]
The king is dead…long live the king
Killing a king is serious business – even the most dedicated to their cause must undoubtedly feel a moment of trepidation before the deed is done and fear for what may come after. In 1649 several dozen Englishmen […]
We were on February 26 subjected to the hugest of Barack Obama Administration Internet power grabs. Where the Administration unilaterally decided to start applying 1934 landline telephone law to the 21st-Century-Web.
This government grab was made under the guise of Network Neutrality – but this flashback-to-New-Deal phone […]
The author interviewing Rand Paul.
Libertarianism no longer seriously can be considered marginal. It has emerged as an important part of our public discourse.
Sen. Rand Paul writes, “They say the libertarian moment has arrived. If you want to understand and be part of that moment, read David […]
There’s an old military pilot adage – believed to have been born during World War II.
“When you’re taking flak, you’re right over the target.”
Last week, the Wall Street Journal offered up:
Google Makes Most of Close Ties to White House
I think at this point in our collective national existence, “Trust me, I’m a Clinton” isn’t the best defense of one’s actions.
We won’t even get into prospective First Laddie Bill Clinton. Hillary Clinton is the woman (well, a woman) who blamed the Benghazi, Libya murder of […]
The “God particle” or the Higgs Boson particle relates to the Standard Model (SM) theory of particle physics. The name derives from the name of the Scottish scientist, Peter Higgs, who helped develop the theory in 1964. A boson is a particular type […]

Faith is a central pillar of most religions. But what does it really mean?
There are those who argue that faith is not a function of evidence or proof. For want of a better description, we could call this ‘blind faith’. There are proponents of this kind of faith in most religions.
‘Blind faith’ is […]
