Pope Francis and the New Feudalism

I am, as Lady Catherine DeBourgh would say, “most seriously displeased” with Pope Francis. I’m not going to suggest that his behavior was not unexpected, however, one would ordinarily like to think that the college of Cardinals would have more sense than to elect a man who is so obviously historically ignorant to a post […]

High School Coach Bullied Into Dropping Prayer at Football Games

jkndyPolitical correctness has invaded my alma mater. I was disappointed to receive an email from our hometown pastor last week, informing me that the assistant football coach at my high school alma mater in Washington state was being investigated for praying with his team. My late brother played […]

More on Climate Change



“If someone is able to show me that what I think or do is not right, I will happily change, for I seek the truth, by which no one was ever truly harmed. It is the person who continues in his self-deception and ignorance […]

To Some, the Bush Name Still Haunts America

Having a good name for yourself means more than your government name. It is how you represent your family, your community, your profession, and most of all, your God. Too many people get a bad rap because of their government names or the gathered history of their government name. We as Americans are too brainy […]

The Hillary Factor – Trust is Irrelevant to Some

Last week I had occasion to speak with a colleague about the current political campaign circus. The colleague in question is a lawyer and a seemingly intelligent person. But for some reason she is an ardent supporter of Hillary Clinton.

This support seems insupportable in light of the […]

The Climate of Climate Change

Climate change has been a subject that has bounced back and forth with both sides bringing out facts and figures to substantiate the claims they make. One side puts forth apocalyptic scenarios, and the other side claims there is no merit to those claims. Politics and money play a large part in the battle. Grants […]

Is Obama a Muslim?


Donald Trump is taking a lot of flak from the media for not “correcting” someone who said Obama was a Muslim. Even Megyn Kelly on Fox reprimanded an audience member who said it, and assured her audience that he was indeed a Christian.

It seems to me the president, however much I despise him, has […]

Moral Tradeoffs and the Muslim refugees

In response to the migrants fleeing the Middle East, our government has just announced that it is raising the refugee quota to 100,000 per year, and that is apart from regular immigrants (in just one year (2013) we admitted 300,000 Muslim immigrants.) In Britain, Prime Minister David Cameron confirmed that Britain will act with its […]

Duly Noted – When Killing is Fun and Virtuous

Duly NotedIslamists deserve praise for their tireless effort to serve their Allah. As a result, we get murder to save mankind from God and other bad habits. The killings are said to serve the salvation of those who survive the cleansing imposed upon their society. This amounts to […]

Introduction to a Video Presentation of the Science in Genesis Day Two – Expansion: A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part III)

There is a curious but crucial omission in Day Two of Genesis that appears in each of the other Days; only in Day Two are the words “And God saw …” missing.

But as this video explains, that is not a clumsy oversight, it is very deliberate; and it reveals a profound understanding of the […]


There is a maxim that has been attributed to Albert Einstein; “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Whether or not Einstein was the first to say this does not matter. What does matter is that the way we choose our elected officials is a form of insanity! We […]

Immigration Cost And Birthright Citizenship

The American people have been told since George Bush that immigrants were coming here to do the jobs that Americans won’t do. We have been told about how much they contribute to the economy in taxes. This is done to change the discussion about the actual numbers and impact on the economy that immigrants have […]

Terrorists posing as refugees

Trump Shouldn’t Blame Oreos – It’s Governments’ and Unions’ Fault

dnldtrmporThe Donald Trump presidential phenomenon rolls on. Higher and higher his primary polls climb. He’s caught the irretrievably corrupt Hillary Clinton in a prospective general election matchup.

Nicki Minaj Heightens Racial Animus

The Trump Phenomenon – Is it Really Only About Trump?

Regarding the Donald Trump phenomenon of ascendency to would-be Republican presidential nominee, many mainstream columnists, bloggers, and other political pundits simply don’t get it. They fret at length about what Trump will say next and about what it will take to stop him. They are stumped as […]

Brutal Imperialism: The Deeper Political Meaning Of 9/11

islmcemrUpon the anniversary of the infamous 9/11 it is instructive to put that and current events into an overarching context. 9/11 was an act of terrorism and a very effective one. That said, it was more than that. By understanding the “more” we are better equipped to […]

Obamas third term

Obama is not Franklin Roosevelt, the only American President to serve more than two terms. Obama does not have the power Roosevelt enjoyed, but following thee Constitution has never been Obamas strong suit.

Can we impeach them all?

The people of this country, those who have worked hard all their life, who have raised a family, and built a future have for several decades watched as the truths we were brought up on have tumbled around their feet. Hard work, honesty, respect, a willingness to discuss differences have all fallen away. There is […]

GOP Candidates: Dazed and Confused

Enormous gloom descended upon this writer as the latest round of GOP debates finished up. I realized there will be no rational patriot defender of America running for President in 2016. The Democratic side of things offers only semi-socialists; no hope for patriotism and freedom there. But surely, I thought, someone with a consistent grasp […]

Analyzing Trump


With all the popular support behind Donald Trump, people are no asking the quite logical question of exactly who he is, and what sort of president he would make. Just the other day someone asked me what I thought because, as he said, he found Trump […]
