Pride and Pride Month: A Fad and a Problem

Yeah. I said it. The title may be enough to write me off already: he is an old dinosaur who can’t keep up with the changing times, a bigot who hates people not like himself, exclusionary, intolerant, just an awful person, etc. I haven’t even had a chance to make my points, but probably youContinue reading “Pride and Pride Month: A Fad and a Problem”

The Gun Control Argument is Flawed

I, like everyone else, am appalled at senseless shooting tragedies, whether in New Town Connecticut ten years ago or in Uvalde Texas last month. I don’t have easy solutions, but neither do folks spouting off publicly. Any ideas proposed, raising the legal age along with other ideas under consideration are not enough to move theContinue reading “The Gun Control Argument is Flawed”

COVID: Can Life Ever Return to Normal? Only if We Demand It.

COVID is clearly fading into the background in 2022. But how long will it remain there? Will the awful precedents our politicians tried to establish the last two years be revived in the near future? Have we ended these miscreants power grab? How do we protect ourselves from the return of such anti-democratic policies? TheContinue reading “COVID: Can Life Ever Return to Normal? Only if We Demand It.”

Abortion Discussion: Seek to Understand

It is difficult to debate contemporary issues because we often only hear our own side of the argument. We can be so certain of ourselves, so we need only convince others of the correctness of our own view. I can quote numbers and provide anecdotes concerning abortion all day long, but I make no progressContinue reading “Abortion Discussion: Seek to Understand”

SI Models, Georgia Voting, Musk, Monkeypox, and More Truth Twisting

Discerning the truth about the public discourse these days can seem challenging as the craziness abounds. But not that much effort is truly needed.

You probably know something is wrong with the world today, but you may not knowContinue reading “SI Models, Georgia Voting, Musk, Monkeypox, and More Truth Twisting”

Are We Surviving COVID Still?

I received an email reminding me the U.S. had reached one million COVID deaths and informing me there are still too many COVID deaths In addition, I was told: The health care system still is overburdened because the unvaccinated and those who have given up any idea of protecting themselves and others continue to beContinue reading “Are We Surviving COVID Still?”

Discussion: Abortion is a Protection for Women or a Holocaust?

Is abortion a fundamental right now? What are the American public’s views on this issue? How will the American public respond if the rollback of Roe v. Wade is finalized? Is the American public wedded to the “protections” under Roe v. Wade or are they ambivalent? Why does any of this matter? I discuss theseContinue reading “Discussion: Abortion is a Protection for Women or a Holocaust?”

Twitter, Roe v. Wade, and the Re-Opening of American Democracy

Two events in recent days signal very positive signs regarding the re-assertion of American democracy: the changes promised by Elon Musk at Twitter and the revelation that Roe v. Wade may be on the chopping block. It is not clear yet if both will actually come to fruition, but both are heading in the rightContinue reading “Twitter, Roe v. Wade, and the Re-Opening of American Democracy”

The Hotel California is Real and Frightening

A society that does not protect its most vulnerable is a society in deep trouble. Once again, a frightening new trend begins in California and is bound to spread:    Under this proposed new legislation, mothers would not be held criminally responsible for actively or neglectfully killing their hours-old to weeks-old infants. And dependingContinue reading “The Hotel California is Real and Frightening”
