Is it really your business?

As creatures of society, we’re natural nosy and intrusive busy bodies.  While there are laudable values in knowing what everyone else is doing (more able to help when help is truly needed), our native nature isn’t to good-hearted altruism.  We gossip about everyone and everything.  We have an opinion on everything and everyone.  Seldom is […]

There was a time in human history when communities were rounded up, imprisoned, dissected, murdered, starved and harvested, and the surrounding population turned a blind eye.  This complicity was national and the debasement of a whole sect of people was rationalized because they were considered sub-human.  A nation bought into this abuse because it was […]

Something I read this morning sparked a thought.  We know me.  That’s always dangerous and often amusing in a “can you believe it” way.  This morning’s fireworks sparkler can be attributed to an article by IowaHawk on Breitbart on same sex marriage.  First, it’s the kind of writing I love, expressing obvious common sense with humor […]

After becoming immersed in studying the government over the last couple years I’ve developed a different view of our country’s political parties. Wadly and I are ex-Republican non-religious social conservatives.  I think we’ve been pushed out of the Republican party and into Libertarianism by a level of governmental overreach we think is killing our country, […]

I’m having a bit of trouble with people advocating flexible principles based on circumstance. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Sean Hannity, but . . . <wince>  Come on, Sean.  It doesn’t matter what bin Ladin did before we managed to remove him from the equation, we must do the right thing according to […]

This is the point when I admit to occasionally being totally unPC.  If you knew me, I mean really knew me, you’d know it happens occasionally.  Like the time I worked for the County and told the guy who came in asking for an application for his wife that we didn’t have anyone who wanted […]

Religion, Science and HuffPo

I got an email railing about love, acceptance and interpretation of the bible.  Included in the email was a “Science Must Destroy Religion” editorial published on the Huffington Post in 2006.   The email evidently hit the right button for me to get wordy.  First of all, anyone who wastes time reading HuffPo seriously needs their […]

There’s been a lot of comment about Obama’s deliberate omission of “by our creator” when quoting from the Declaration of Independence.  He’s done it twice in the last two months. It seems the volume of hue and cry has had an impact.  Obama is finally showing proper respect to our Declaration of Independence.  To me […]

Did you watch the Restoring Honor rally in our nation’s capital?  I did.  It was a little bit too much black religious revival for me, but I truly appreciate the message, enjoyed the stories and music.  Bless the Boy Scout who lead the Pledge of Allegiance. I enjoyed it because its goal was to rally […]

Race, the Tea Party, NAACP

Have you been watching the latest blathering from the NAACP about the Tea Party movement?  Is it any wonder conservative blacks no longer feel the NAACP is an organization with a message and purpose they can support?  There is a lot of truth in the statement that the NAACP is now irrelevant.  I’m hearing it […]
