The Missing Human Element: The Greeks vs. the Kneecap Breakers

For a long time, we’ve been hearing about Greece as the poster child for failed economies, but then we get most of our news from an elite that values property over human life. The Germans, who have a somewhat harsh demeanor toward “lazy” non-Aryans, refuses for its bankers to lose a dime, even though everyone … Continue reading

When My Southern Baptist Pastor Slammed Racism

The response to the shooting of nine black Christians at a Bible study by a White Supremacist last week kicked off lots of emotions. The overwhelming response has been condemnation. I personally felt sad, then mad, then sad again. I knew if they were real Christians, as I suspected they were, they would forgive the … Continue reading

Gun Control and Auschwitz: It’s Really Hard to Shoot Lice

On Twitter this morning, a man posted, “I’d rather die defending gun rights than be part of the after effects of gun control,” accompanied by a picture from WWII concentration camps of starved corpses. Message being, if they take our guns, this is how we will all end up. I have no problem with supporting … Continue reading

White Girl, Black Protesters and the Red, White and Blue

Yesterday my daughter asked if I wanted to go the protest at the local college and I thought I did. Today I do not. As John Maynard Keynes said, ““When my information changes, I alter my conclusions. What do you do, sir?” As it turns out the black demonstrators were being racist themselves, so no, … Continue reading

Zealots, NeoCons and Revolutionary Hotheads

We still have dangerous Zealots among us today. Here’s how to spot them. I remember when I first read the Bible long ago and came across the disciple called Simon Zelotes.

Yemen: You Can’t Beat People from the Mountains

“then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains”-Jesus “Kurds have no friends but the mountains.”-Kurdish proverb Most Americans are vaguely aware of a place called Yemen, but they probably think of it as just another stretch of sand full of violence. Yemen has been in the news lately because the Houthis, a … Continue reading

China will win due to West’s Imagination Deficit

“Imagination,” Einstein said, “is more important than knowledge.” When the Queen asked her fancy-pants economists why they did not see the Crash of 2008 coming, they took a few days to answer. Finally, they said it had been a “failure of imagination.” You would think the West would have pulled itself up and fixed its … Continue reading

What do the masters of Mankind WANT?

What drives the elite, variously called the New World Order, the One Percent or the Anglo-American Empire? “Oil” is a common answer. But why do they want oil? To get money. But why do they want money? Stupid question, everybody wants money. Indeed, that is a common desire; everybody wants money. But money is not … Continue reading
