The Secret of Life? Never Quit. Never. Ever.

I’ll be the first to admit that I am not very talented. I wasn’t blessed with superior intellect, physical stature or athletic skills. I’m average in just about every way except one. I don’t quit – for any reason – but in truth, that hasn’t always been true. I was once a quitter. I had…

2016 = 1776? Maybe…

2016 will be a watershed presidential election for a number of reasons, the least of which is that it will feature the first female candidate in history versus the first non-politician since Dwight Eisenhower. The reason I think this will be the least of the reasons because there is a greater dimension that gets ignored…

The Prostitution Party

Yesterday I watched Clinton Cash for free at Breitbart.com. I don’t know how I missed all of these news stories regarding the Clintons. It’s pretty disgusting to see what these two have gotten away with under the guise of the Clinton Foundation. Aside from being extremely detrimental abroad, they’ve brought their corruption here. For instance,…

An Appeal To Reason

You cannot ask to join something older, larger, and farther reaching than yourself, and then declare it is solely yours by demanding it be taken away from someone else. You cannot demand that something that has shaped entire arcs of history conform to your view and change into something it is not, cannot be, nor has…

Still Cruzin’

I have always thought that Ted Cruz offered the greatest opportunity to break the hold of the “establishment” over Republican politics and it’s “go along to get along” practices in Washington. Many disagree (and that is their right) but what I see in the two remaining candidates is this – Hillary will continue a third…

Who’s the Boss?

If I were a male boss, I’m pretty sure I’d be accused of sexual harassment. Then again, I’m getting awfully confused by what delineates sexual harassment from flirting. That subject could be its own post. But I digress… On the internet I read about Fox News anchor, Gretchen Carlson, filing a sexual harassment suit against…

The Obtuse Marcuse

“Tolerance is extended to policies, conditions, and modes of behavior which should not be tolerated because they are impeding, if not destroying, the chances of creating an existence without fear and misery. This sort of tolerance strengthens the tyranny of the majority against which authentic liberals protested… Liberating tolerance, then, would mean intolerance against movements…

Reject False Dichotomies

“The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.” ~ Proverbs 22:3 The incredible and incredulous non sequitur that was the James Comey statement signifying the government’s refusal to recommend prosecution of Hillary Clinton creates a familiar false dichotomy. It has become the fashion during the Age of…

The Age of Insta-Rage

We live in an age where “everything is seemingly spinning out of control” due to one thing – and it isn’t tribalism, white privilege, income inequality or a lack of “social justice.” The reason our society and culture seem so irrational is that we have reached a point where everything is about politics. Progressives have…

Yes, but He’s OUR Idiot!

I have voiced my intent to proceed with my anti-Hillary vote and cast it for Trump – but he isn’t making it easy. His speech in Cincinnati yesterday (actually more of an incoherent assemblage of rambling sound bites from the past) was embarrassing and immature on so many levels. It was filled with childish taunting…
