The Day after a Shooting

Yesterday a 24 year-old American whose family is from Kuwait shot dead four Marines at two recruiting stations in Chatanooga Tennessee. The first reaction of almost everyone is sadness, anger, and sympathy for the bereaved families. Almost immediately following is: Who did this? Why? These are natural human responses to tragedy all over the world. … Continue reading

Radical Simpletons: Difference between Fascists, Communists and Socialists

You know you are dealing with a Radical Simpleton when they chop the world in two and label one-half Right and the other Left. On the Right half goes everything good, noble and pure. On the Left half goes everything evil, vicious and filthy. By this extremely lame line of reasoning, anything bad automatically goes … 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. (Acts 1:13) That’s odd, I thought, he has a last name, the other guys have a first name like Peter or James, the son … Continue reading

Vouluntarism: 1. the principle of relying on voluntary action (used especially with reference to the involvement of voluntary organizations in social welfare). 2. PHILOSOPHY the doctrine that the will is a fundamental or dominant factor in the individual or the universe.

Is Truth the Destroyer of Nations?

Many alternative media outlets insist that if only America knew the truth about the shadow government and the machinations of the ruling elite, they would rise up and fix it. I am a big fan of the truth, aren’t you? I mean what good can come from living a lie? But can the truth destroy … Continue reading

The One Person Who is Most to Blame

It is quite natural to look for the one person who is most to blame when something bad happens. That way we can deal with them and prevent that bad thing from ever happening again. So we want to know who rules the world-really? Because they are doing a lousy job and we should get … Continue reading

Old Testament Israelites Sound Like Middle Eastern Terrorists

Brian: Excuse me. Are you the Judean People’s Front? Reg: F**k off! We’re the People’s Front of Judea. Reg: If you want to join the People’s Front of Judea, you have to really hate the Romans. Brian: I do! Reg: Oh yeah, how much? Brian: A lot! Reg: Right, you’re in. -Life of Brian, Monty Python   I am a Christian and … Continue reading

Current Ukraine Government Will Self-Destruct

Update: How about the incredible scenario in the Ukraine? You have a “nation” created by the Germans during WWI, a large segment of which has mystical dreams of racial superiority and a desire to cleanse the motherland of impure, (nay, filthy!) Russians, Poles and Jews. They nurture a fierce race hatred with an almost religious … Continue reading

No, my friend, Jesus wasn’t a Republican

I look at arguing like the ancient Greeks. To argue means to present differing opinions in order to possibly arrive closer to the truth than when you both started. I got into a Twitter argument a few days ago with a Republican Christian. It started like this: (Pic) Here am I with my lovely wife … Continue reading
