What is equality?

Not long ago I asked what I thought was an important question to which everyone needs to have an answer in What makes all human beings equal?  The post didn't elicit as many replies or discussion as I had anticipated.  But I'd like to pose a somewhat rhetorical question. The call for people … [Read more...]

How evil are you?

The 99%'ers are losing their media traction and quickly becoming irrelevant as a movement.  Don't get me wrong, this is a good thing.  For all the good they and their sympathizers think they did, the bad outweighed it many times over (I have compiled more than 75 news articles recording "purely … [Read more...]

Happy Earth Day!

Eww people!  This seems to be the sentiment of many environmentalists.  The notion that everything would be just fine and dandy if all the disgusting humans weren't ruining everything.  Intrusive laws and regulations imposed all in the name of saving the environment which, by the way, doesn't need … [Read more...]

Estimates are different from Actuals

I currently voluntarily find myself in an "interview" via email correspondence with a fellow blogger.  I use quote marks because the interviewer has quickly gone from interviewer to debater, which doesn't really bother me, I like debating.  We are at a point now where he has capitalized on my … [Read more...]

Desperate Atheism

I have come to at least one more conclusion about the mindset of some Atheists when it comes to confronting God and religion.  There is a differing degree of desperation in a number of Atheists to disprove the existence of God which manifests itself in a number of ways.  Yesterday I encountered two … [Read more...]

Obama: Buffett Rule — Do as I say, not as I do

President Obama has made tax rates a major campaign issue.  He purports to want to see millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share (See: All You Can Eat Buffett, Pay Up!).  He believes, and has convinced many of his supporters that it is inherently unfair for "the wealthy" to pay lower tax … [Read more...]

Trayvon Martin and Abortion

It is difficult to surf the internet without coming across articles or social media sites cheering the arrest of George Zimmerman for the death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin.  I have been taken back by how much publicity this has gotten -- making daily national headlines, and how passionate people … [Read more...]

The Lynching of George Zimmerman

George Zimmerman was inevitably charged with second degree murder by Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey.  This came more than a month after the event which led to the arrest. For some, it was long overdue.  For others, like me, it is considered a travesty of justice.  Not so much because … [Read more...]

Tax fairness

There is a lot to be said for fairness, a concept historically employed by children.  We feel better when we know things are fair, depending on what you mean by fair that is (See: Fair Enough?).  My problem with fairness is the direction people want things to go when they demand things to be … [Read more...]

Is Homosexuality Natural?

The above picture was featured in a social media post by another blogger.  His intention I believe was fairly innocuous, but of course me being one who cannot allow a controversial statement pass without saddling others with my opinion, I responded with a question: In how many species is cannibalism … [Read more...]

Because voter ID laws are racist

Political tension rises as multiple States vie to set in place voter identification laws requiring voters to produce photo identification in order to cast their ballot.  Those on the left make the claim that requiring someone to produce ID to vote is a veiled effort to disenfranchise minority … [Read more...]

The only black Justice on SCOTUS is as dumb as a dog…maybe

Failed Air America radio talk show host Randi Rhodes' comments on Justice Clarence Thomas are yet another glaring example of the double standard when it comes to race and childish decorum in the public square.
