Scaramouche, Scaramouche, Will You do the Fandango?

“Scaramouche, scaramouche, will you do the fandango?” ~ Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody (1975) I’m kind of on a retro-Queen roll the last couple of days. A scaramouche is defined as “a stock character in commedia dell’arte and farce who is a cowardly braggart, easily beaten and frightened.” The “fandango” is a lively Spanish dance for two…

My Mind = A Trip Down Alice’s Rabbit Hole

Let’s takes a step back and assess a bit shall we? In contemporary America, we are witnessing the following: Men (as biologically defined) who claim they are women and women (as biologically defined) claiming to be men; Feminists theorizing that men should be confined to concentration camps; Pedophilia is claimed to be just another sexual…

Never Say Never

As the GOP convention nears, Cruz is wisely preparing for a contested convention. Because this hasn’t happened since 1948, many people (including Trump) are confused about the delegate process. The way I understand it is that when a candidate wins a state, he is granted a certain number of pledged delegates. If the winning candidate…

Float Like A Butterfly

The other day I decided to try floating. No, I didn’t drop acid and start tripping; I literally floated in salt water. Isolation floating tanks have become all the rage, you see. If you do a Google search, you may be surprised to find a floating spa near you. Don’t search as I did, because…

A Critique of Pure Unreason

I ran across this article when I was in the middle of getting my mind wrapped around the damage that the current general rejections of reason, logic and natural law in favor of relativism, absurdity and crimes against nature are doing to global societies in general and American society in specific.   I have been…

Back to Alice’s Wonderland

“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master— that’s all.” ~ Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) A concept many are not familiar with but should be is “deconstruction” – deconstruction is defined as “a theory…

Economic Freedom = Individual Freedom

“There’s no justice in the distribution of income and wealth. I never would argue there is. Those who are wealthy don’t deserve to be wealthy anymore than those who are poor deserve to be poor. It’s pure accident. And we — but if you start to look at things that way, you’re going to go…

Still Cruzin’

Beyond the twin rolling disasters that are the Democrat and GOP primaries, one must wonder what it says about our country that the two current leaders, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, have unfavorable ratings of 54% and 63% respectively (in the RCP averages) and the candidate with the least unfavorable ratings is the “democratic socialist”,…
