Wayne Dyer: Snake Oil Salesman, High Priest of Modernity or Both?

WayneDyerby Tim Jones9/3/15
Wayne Dyer, who died not too long ago, is the epitome of the high priests of the secular age.

Anchor This!

IllegalAlienby Jon N. Hall9/3/15
Becoming an American is a bit like becoming a vampire; new vampires are created by old vampires. As with vampires, American citizenship requires an infusion of blood, but not from a bite — from an umbilical cord. There are exceptions to this rule, however. More » • (577 views)

TV Series Review: Narcos

Narcosby David Norris8/29/15
This superbly produced Netflix series is part crime drama, part history lesson, and is definitely worth watching. I didn’t have a lot of background about the Columbian drug cartels going into this, but much of the ‘headlines’ from the 1980’s came popping back into my head as the story unfolded.

The Lie of Pro-Choice

Conceptionby FJ Rocca8/28/15
The euphemism chosen by promoters of abortion is “Pro Choice” implies the rational decision of one action over another. It does not consider the quality of the thing about which the choice is being made. The act of choice is essentially neutral. More » • (1032 views)

The Wrong Headedness of Multiculturalism

MultiCultiThumbby FJ Rocca8/28/15
The misconception that America is multicultural is being touted by the Left and too easily bought by many as a magnanimous gesture to people who came from different cultures to the great Melting Pot of America, not to live in separate enclaves More » • (732 views)
