Exiting Wonderland; Voting Trump

On Tuesday night we went to the Trump rally. It was YUGE! Seriously, it was literally huge. The park supposedly accommodates 7,000. Trump had 11,200 inside the gates and a little over 10,000 outside. My sister (the lib one) said it must’ve been loaded with rednecks. On the contrary, I saw engineers, teachers, businessmen, military…

America on the Cusp

The fact that Hillary Clinton is even still in this race is a testament to the power of the media to choose what they believe the average citizen should see as important.   Even in scientific inquiry, if you are only fed sets of data corroborating a certain hypothesis and never see anything contradictory, you…

Damned if You Do, Damned if You Don’t

“The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline…

For Arthur – Kalergi’s Plan

Sometimes, the best thing about an article is the comments. After reading about another Muslim atrocity in Europe, a commenter stated that it was all a part of Kalergi’s Plan. Since I didn’t know who Kalergi was, I was curious to find out about him and his plan. When I searched Kalergi, the image I…
