Why Liberals will never be pro-life

It's no surprise to anyone who follows the platforms of American political parties that nearly universally speaking, Liberals and Democrats are pro-choice when it comes to abortion.  But it wasn't until recently that I think I have stumbled upon why that is. We all remember -- well, those of us who … [Read more...]

Can America really go broke?

Sometimes liberal thinking leaves me scratching my head.  I'm going to give this contributor the benefit of the doubt and say he's at least 13 or 14 years-old: (Democratic Underground) -- Let's say that you have the ability to print your currency using your computer printer, and every merchant … [Read more...]

Sunday Fun: How did you find me?

I am always surprised at some of the terms people plugged into a search engine and found their way to my site.  Some I understand, other I couldn't even replicate, let alone dicypher why on Earth search giants like Google or Bing would associate them with me.  So Here's a peek into how some of you … [Read more...]

An atheist society

I assume many Atheists long for the day when a society would be universally populated by Atheists.  Maybe they cherish the thought of never having to hear about God in the public square, or have to deal with those pesky religious people always thumping their religious books scornfully in their … [Read more...]

President Obama bets against free market capitalism

___________________________________________ PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: [Comment at 1:47 mark] you're right, I mean, that's how our free market works, but I've made a different bet, on American workers.

Who’s to blame for single motherhood and abortion?

Note: I realize the following commentary may be controversial and seems to be backwards at first blush.  So while reading this please try to keep from 'reading between the lines', 'interpreting my views and arguing as though my view and your interpretation are identical', and trying to figure out … [Read more...]

Another Facebook dialogue on abortion

It's rare that I engage in an discussion on the social media site Facebook about abortion, but the other night it was unavoidable.  Well, kind of.  My personality is such that there are times where my self-imposed restraint is set aside in a situation where I think a clear line must be made.  The … [Read more...]

Blacks aren’t allowed to be Republicans

Many on the left hurl criticism at the right for being the party of old white men.  And they're right.  Blacks aren't just allowed to be in the Republican party.  But not because of Republicans or conservatives, that is.  No, the reason they aren't allowed is because of Liberals and … [Read more...]

Should I know this about you?

I have asked this question of supporters of same-sex marriage in a critical way in the past.  I often wonder why it is important to you that I know your sexual proclivities.  I don't particularly think this is information I essential for me to know regardless of your sexual identification, but it … [Read more...]

Spend your money wisely

A few years ago my family and I were struggling to save money.  Everything and anything we could do to save a buck was on the table.  We were one of those families who lived almost exclusively on generic brand foods.  We figured it's pretty much the same thing just without all the fancy packaging. … [Read more...]

How do you determine rights?

Rights are kind of a tricky issue.  We have come a long way from the past where rights were fewer.  What I mean is today we seem to have more rights than in previous generations.  Put another way, rights are things we as citizens are entitled to in virtue of our citizenship, they're what we're owed. … [Read more...]

Naturalism and ethics

One recurring complain from Atheists is the problem of evil.  Regardless of how this complaint is formulated, it is a persistent theme.  It's certainly a valid complaint worthy of a response, but I think the Atheist has just as difficult a hurdle when trying to explain it through their worldview. … [Read more...]

God, killing, and abortion

It's my experience that many Atheists fault God for commanding the Israelites to kill peoples at His will.  As I have heard it, they believe God is quite the monster when he demands no men, women, nor children be spared.  Some Atheists have even described it as God commanding murder.  My point here … [Read more...]

Was Jesus an evil capitalist?

(Matthew 20:1-15 NASB) -- “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. When he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius for the day, he sent them into his vineyard.  And he went out about the third hour and saw others standing … [Read more...]

Oct. 11th: National Tell Everyone Who You Have Sex With Day!

Apparently today is a day observed by the gay community encouraging homosexuals who have kept their sexual proclivities private, to make those proclivities public.

Why raising taxes on the wealthy doesn’t increase revenue

There will always be people who are envious of those who have more than they do.  Some people, such as the president, believe taxes ought to be raised on the wealthy even though he knows it has a negative effect on the tax revenues to the government.  As we speak, the amount of government debt is … [Read more...]

Good people don’t do bad things

Ok, so as much as I hate to admit it, I watch reality shows with my wife.  One of her favorites is Rehab with Dr. Drew.  In past years, the series was a showcase of celebrities in need of rehab from drug and alcohol addictions.  This year however, the show puts ordinary people with the same problems … [Read more...]
