Roe v Wade was overturned in June and that ruling sent the decision on whether or not to allow abortions back to the states. Missouri was the first state to totally ban abortion (Missouri’s law was actually passed in 2019; there was an automatic trigger that kicked in after the decision). Kansas was the firstContinue reading “What Just Happened in Kansas?”

The Normalization of Delusion
Recently, I wrote of the affirmation of Coach Joe Kennedy’s right to pray at mid-field after contests. I said this eight-year battle for this simple, Constitutionally protected right is not a harbinger that confirms your worst fears of Christians. Like many commenting on my posts, this person’s distaste for religious views seems prejudicial and unhealthy:Continue reading “The Normalization of Delusion”
Freedom to Pray is Upheld. Why was it ever Threatened?
High School Coach Joe Kennedy was fired from his job at Bremerton (Washington) High School for praying at the 50-yard line immediately after each game. The coach engaged in this practice for nearly eight years (win or lose) until local officials determined it to be a threat to good order. Namely, they saw this asContinue reading “Freedom to Pray is Upheld. Why was it ever Threatened?”
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”
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. Those watching this modern game (and it is clearly a game) only need an open mind. 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”
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”
Discussion on Transgenderism: What Is It All About?
I set off this transgender debate/discussion with an email regarding my post on Judge Brown-Jackson (judge-kentaji-brown-jackson-what’s-a-woman). I prefaced my email with the following statement: The trans agenda has exploded in the last ten years. It is dangerous. We must be aware and protect our children from this. Once kids are indoctrinated, there is no lineContinue reading “Discussion on Transgenderism: What Is It All About?”
A Dozen Quick Takes
I usually go in depth on a topic for most posts. It take considerable time to research and then put all the information together in a coherent package. I often come across material which I never publish, but there is a ton of good info that I can’t seem to work in. I put togetherContinue reading “A Dozen Quick Takes”
The Bigotry of Low Expectations (and the Failure of the Systemic Racism Narrative)
Today, I consider damning words provided me from a teacher friend at a local public school. I still hear many say it is possible to get a good education in public school; motivated kids can and often still do well. There are bright spots in public education for sure, but the overall package is stillContinue reading “The Bigotry of Low Expectations (and the Failure of the Systemic Racism Narrative)”
