Immigration: The Refugee Scam

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke8/27/15
Jeb Bush has called illegal migration “an act of love.” And all over the West we see nations being loved to death, with endless human waves from Third World countries washing ashore.

EricHofferby FJ Rocca8/26/15
Last May 21st marked the 32nd anniversary of the death of American philosophic icon, Eric Hoffer. Although his biography is somewhat murky, there are facts of which we can be certain.

Not Your Father’s 14th Amendment

AnchorBabyby Jon N. Hall8/24/15
On August 19, two excellent, must-read articles ran on the Net that are sorely needed correctives to a common misunderstanding about the 14th Amendment. Unfortunately, this mistake is even made by certain legal professionals who should know better. More » • (100 views)

Waiting to Bloom

BloomingFlowerby Anniel8/24/15
I’m still fascinated by those beautiful Late Bloomers, so I set out to find “Johnny”, and what had become of him. (STIn Praise of Late Bloomers,” 8/15/15). It was an interesting search, reconnecting me with several far-flung acquaintances More » • (29 views)

Will The Church Let The World Go To Hell?

TheCrossby Patricia L. Dickson8/23/15
America has witnessed our Supreme Court make same-sex marriage the law of the land with a 5-4 decision that changed the definition of marriage.

Hobbiton

Hobbitonby Brad Nelson8/20/15
Everyone wants to be a Hobbit. No one wants to be a Ranger  •  Conservatives don’t tend to be the touch-feely, artsy-fartsy types. They tend to be serious people (but with a healthy sense of humor). They are more likely to own a gun than a water pipe. More » • (80 views)

Classiness is Nice, but Not Essential in a President

PresidentialSealby FJ Rocca8/20/15
We live in a dangerous world. It seems to me it was a lot less dangerous during the Cold War, when the probability of nuclear war was in inverse ration to the possibility. The greater the weaponry, the possibility grew; but this reduced the prospect of ultimate world destruction to virtual impossibility. More » • (66 views)

Equalizing Outcomes – Educational Tyranny

Inequalityby Anniel8/18/15
How do we change thinking on education until we understand at least some of how we got where we are? Getting rid of Common Core, the Department of Education, and unions are the first items that need to be addressed. Those items are beyond the scope of what I write here. More » • (116 views)

Is Soccer Un-American?

Soccerby FJ Rocca8/18/15
Personally, I don’t like soccer and never have. I find it colossally boring. Any sport that is decided by one goalie kicking against another goalie is silly. Why not just eliminate most of the other play and get directly to that part? More » • (56 views)

Movie Review: Straight Outta Compton

Straight-Outta-Comptonby Patricia L. Dickson8/17/15
When I first heard the movie Straight Outta Compton being advertised, I knew that I wanted to see it in order to fill in some historical blanks from the early 1990s. From late 1991 to January 1993, I was on an overseas assignment with the military. My overseas assignment was deep in the desert of Sinai Egypt. More » • (88 views)
