DeanStanleyby Brad Nelson   12/23/13
If you’re looking for a light movie to watch over the holidays, this might not be the one. And yet, with patience, there is a surprisingly good story that unfolds. More » • (3064 views)

Orphans of Perfection

Narcissus2by Glenn Fairman   12/23/13
In the pallid light of America’s last election, how then shall we make sense of such a monumental absurdity, where half our countrymen broke ranks with reason and saw fit to continue on a course that most assuredly will send us on an accelerated course over the falls? More » • (744 views)

Happy Christmas To All

HappyChristmasby Deana Chadwell    12/23/13
I’ll have to admit to wanting, like everyone else to chime in on the Phil Robertson flap, and heaven knows I have plenty to say, but it’s almost Christmas and perhaps it’s time to broaden our scope a little and at least glance at the bigger picture More » • (1290 views)

DontTreadThumbby Steve Lancaster   12/22/13
The Individual: Without individual liberty there can be no free society. “Things fall apart; the center cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world” – William Butler Yeats. How can anarchy ever be mere? More » • (1068 views)

Movie Review: White Christmas

WhiteChristmasby Brad Nelson   12/20/13
I don’t like this film simply because it’s directed by one of my favorite directors, Michael Curtiz (Casablanca). And I really should dislike it because I’ve never, for some reason, been able to stomach Danny Kaye. More » • (2954 views)

Homosexuals Gets Duck Dy-Nasty

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   12/19/13

When Britain Savages Itself

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   12/18/13
England’s prestigious Oxford Union recently invited famed raconteur and talk-radio host Michael Savage to a debate on whether or not NSA leaker Edward Snowden is a hero. And that is certainly a matter for debate. More » • (858 views)

America’s Chief Export: Immorality

Immoralityby Matt Barber   12/17/13
Why are Americans so peeved? Is it Obamacare? Well, partly – and in a big way. One wonders, in fact, if that sign language interpreter at the Mandela funeral moonlighted as the lead IT consultant for Healthcare.gov. More » • (1711 views)

The Prodigal and The Political

ProdigalSonThumbby Glenn Fairman   12/17/13
In the parable of the Prodigal Son, the reprobate descends to the squalor of the pigsty before he comes to his senses, repents, and returns to the Father. It is in the concrete realization that one has either abysmally squandered his resources or that his poor choices will soon seal his destruction, that true life altering changes can be made.

White-washing Mandela’s Memory

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   12/16/13
After his mother was raped, and then murdered along with his father last year, sobbing 12-year-old Amaro was gagged and drowned in scalding bathwater. And that’s how the youngest member of the Viana family became a statistic: another in a long line of white South African victims of black violence. More » • (2516 views)

A New Transvaluation of Man and Woman

WhichEverThumbby Glenn Fairman   12/16/13
Living in the uber-tolerant society of the West, no one of any moral consequence denies homosexuals the right to assemble and live their lives in that state of relative freedom. More » • (3856 views)
