What is Sacrifice? What is Courage? Musk, Swift, and Others Demonstrate.

Although Elon Musk claims he has been and still is a liberal, he has become a conservative hero. I often agree with him, but I see him as merely attempting to return us to normality, sensibility, fairness, and sanity. Musk is resurrecting the notion of free speech, a fundamental concept which has only recently comeContinue reading “What is Sacrifice? What is Courage? Musk, Swift, and Others Demonstrate.”

From Obergefell to “Let’s Trans the Kids”. What’s Going on?

In 2012, North Carolina voted for a ban on gay marriage, extending a streak of thirty consecutive “no” votes in a period of a few years: https://www.npr.org/sections/itsallpolitics/2012/05/08/152297983/gay-marriage-referendum-drives-high-turnout-in-north-carolina The AP made that projection based on an actual tally of votes. With 35 percent of the vote counted, 58 percent of those casting ballots voted in favorContinue reading “From Obergefell to “Let’s Trans the Kids”. What’s Going on?”

What Does the Reaction to Jordan Neely’s Death Say About our Culture?

Was the death of Jordan Neely, a homeless man who succumbed on a NYC subway train, an accident or further demonstration of white supremacy? The question should not even be debated. Rational thought can explain such events, but too many (especially those whose job it is to inform us) have abandoned such thought; consequently, truthContinue reading “What Does the Reaction to Jordan Neely’s Death Say About our Culture?”

Biden: Will You Still Love Me When I’m 86?

Will it be Trump vs. Biden in 2024? Joe Biden is currently 80 years old and would be 86 by the end of a second term. Trump would be 82 by the end of a second term. Reagan, the prior record holder, left office at 77. Republican candidate Asa Hutchinson and Democrat candidates, Maryann Williamson,Continue reading “Biden: Will You Still Love Me When I’m 86?”

On Church and Science: Yet Another Phony Narrative

Academics today view Christianity as a fairy tale, and those believing in it as gullible and witless. Science and religion are portrayed as mutually exclusive, but this view has gained acceptance only in the last 100 years, and can be disproven.  Isaac Newton, the inventor of calculus and one of the greatest minds of allContinue reading “On Church and Science: Yet Another Phony Narrative”

Revival Must Happen

Pastor Greg Laurie, pastor and author of Jesus Revolution spoke the title line in a recent interview. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/jesus-revolution-how-the-hippie-generation-came-to-christ/id1045171376?i=1000607600628 I knew nothing of Laurie until I saw his story depicted in the Jesus Revolution movie earlier this year. Laurie was caught up in the hippie movement of the 1970s, a movement that can be seen asContinue reading “Revival Must Happen”

Guns and Transgenderism. It’s All About the Narrative.

We don’t yet know exactly why a transgender man (actually a female), killed six at a Nashville Christian school. She said she wanted to die and knew she would die that day (I refer to this person by her actual sex, not by the preferred one). She left behind a manifesto to explain everything, butContinue reading “Guns and Transgenderism. It’s All About the Narrative.”

Failed Banks, Excess Spending, and the Economy

Inflation became a problem in 2021, and the Fed has raised interest rates to combat it. The economy went into a brief recession last year but recovered quickly. Now, in 2023 several mid-size banks failed. What does it all mean? Are we in trouble or are these one-offs? Are we in for a “soft-landing” asContinue reading “Failed Banks, Excess Spending, and the Economy”

Novak Djokovic, Dr. Redfield, Moderna CEO, and the COVID Cultists

Blaze host, Steve Deace likens Dr. Fauci and his COVID followers to a cult. They have shown a religious fervor to follow narratives which never panned out, misleading millions of Americans along the way. Many scoff at the claims and tactics of these COVID religious zealots, but they don’t push back enough to effectively counter.Continue reading “Novak Djokovic, Dr. Redfield, Moderna CEO, and the COVID Cultists”

Discussion: Systemically Racist Appraisals

I asked my liberal debating friend about this Rasmussen poll question: “Is it okay to be white?” I hope we all believe it is acceptable to be white, black, or to possess any other immutable trait. Yet, this disappointing result says I am viewed as problematic by a large percentage of people who don’t evenContinue reading “Discussion: Systemically Racist Appraisals”
