Book review: My Grandfather’s Son by Clarence Thomas

GrandfathersSonby Timothy Lane   2/4/14
With Black History Month in progress and a femocratic mockumentary puffing Anita Hill coming out soon, this was an appropriate time to read and review Clarence Thomas’s memoir of his life up to becoming a Supreme Court Justice. Indeed, a third of the booj covers his judicial nominations (first for the DC Court of Appeals, then for SCOTUS). More » • (1359 views)

The American Western

TheSearchersby Steve Lancaster   2/3/14
Much has been said about the western recently. Brad has written movingly about the characters in Lonesome Dove, Open Range and Broken Trail. These are great movies in their own right and there is little I could add to the commentary. More » • (980 views)

And if a humble mammal can soften the psychic blows from this frigid Polar Vortex, then perhaps it can also pick a Super Bowl winner More » • (922 views)

Getting to the Core

ToTheCoreby Deana Chadwell    1/31/14
It’s a little odd that as a veteran high school teacher I’ve put off writing about this. Teaching is in my blood – sort of a congenital reflex; I learn something new and immediately start imagining how I would present that in a classroom. Teaching is my passion, but the state of American education today is so painful that I’m glad I’m out of it. Our district teachers have one foot out the strike door; More » • (2767 views)

C.S. Lewis: A Faith Observed

cslewisby Glenn Fairman   1/30/14
“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” –C.S. Lewis  •  On November 22, 1963, America was shaken to its foundations by the murder of a young and virile President at the apex of our nation’s power.

Why Is the Southern Poverty Law Center Trying to Crush a Small Jewish Organization?

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   1/29/14
It seems as if certain purported civil-rights activists think homosexuals are like some organized-crime groups: you can join the gang, but the only way you can leave is feet first. More » • (1158 views)

A Few Thoughts about Libertarianism

atlas shruggedby Glenn Fairman   1/29/14
By virtue of its very definition, libertarianism has what they refer to in political philosophy as a neutral or attenuated vision of the public Good; or more fully, an understanding that the Right stands prior to the Good. More » • (3103 views)

Who is Obama?

BigBrotherby Steve Lancaster   1/26/14
The United States is in the middle of one of the forty year cycles of scrutiny of core values. This examination is often prompted by economic crisis, and the credit meltdown of 2008/09 was certainly that. More » • (2325 views)

God’s “Silence”

freewillby Glenn Fairman   1/25/14
Earlier today, a man on Facebook queried me as to why the Creator would allow evil to occur, if he is as good as we deem Him to be. If the great panorama of: wars, murders, thefts, rapes, and the entire host of human-manufactured horrors, both great and small, occur under the watchful eye of a loving God More » • (3710 views)
