Trump’s Immigration Order: What’s Really in it?

If you don't let just anyone in your door why should a nation?
This article has to by necessity include information about immigration, but what it's really about is the intellectual dishonesty of the left. They simply say things that aren't true in order to prove their point. They ignore logic and common sense. They ignore history. It doesn't matter if you are for or against Trump or his order, at least articulate your point of view from facts. How many have ...

If the Earth is Warming it IS Your Fault

YOU are a carbon based life form. When you die your carbon goes back into the environment making you part of the global warming problem. Deal with it, you are part of the problem. You are carbon so if carbon causes warming then you have to live forever, holding on to all your carbon so  you don't add to the problem and - don't forget not to breath. In fact, all life on earth is carbon based. Al...

John Adams by David McCullough

John Adams cover art
Before you read this book I recommend you start with McCullough's other book "1776". John Adams is one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. His role has often been underestimated. This book sets the record right for the conscientious reader. David McCullough was given unprecedented access to Adam's personal papers. As it turns out he was the most prolific writer of any of...

1776 by David McCullough

1776 Cover Art
Yes, this is a nonfiction book on American history and for some that may sound boring right off. But I am telling you that it does not read like nonfiction. Unless you have been a student of American history in detail I promise you will read this with a "holy cow" look on your face and utter at least once "I had no idea that happened". I've read a lot of American history and I still found myself i...

1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus by Charles C. Mann

1491 cover art
This is not the kind of American history most people think of when they hear that term. However, this book is also a book on American history. It's title "1491" should give you a clue as to what it's about. What were the Americas like before Columbus. The answer will surprise most people and upend your idea of Native Americans. While this may not sound like an important topic I think it's parti...

State of Fear by Michael Crichton

State of Fear cover art
Michael Crichton was a great author. His untimely death most certainly made me sad. This is one of the last books he wrote. He made his personal feelings about global warming clear in a lecture he gave on the subject. These lectures are still one of my favorite reads. One introduces the idea of global warming as a religion, and idea which time has demonstrated how right Crichton was and the other ...

Stupid Ass Doomsday Clock: Beware the Mastermind & the Clock Maker.

Dour man looks sternly at fake clock
Do you believe there's actually an organization of men and women, supposedly educated (scientists they say), that sit around and debate on the movement of this fictional clock's minute hand? Don't think for one moment it isn't a partisan timepiece as well. "The Doomsday Clock is a symbolic timepiece that represents the countdown to a catastrophic event occurring, such as nuclear war or life-endin...

Is there really a war on women?

A bunch of vaginas
In case you haven't heard, there's a war on women! They are under assault, relentless assault, by the patriarchy. Only...they're not. Let's be completely honest about this, the women in the march haven't been oppressed. They have the same rights as men do. They aren't paid less for the same work. That myth has long been busted but they just refuse to accept it. This refusal to understand or import...

US Embassy to Move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem?

The below story showed up in my news feed several days ago. It states that on Monday (that would be day before yesterday now) Trump was going to announce that the US embassy in Israel would be moving from Tel Aviv, the capitol of Israel to the ancient city of Jerusalem. This may sound like boring news and perhaps if some other embassy and some other city it would be. However, when we're talking ab...

Republicans: Your Message isn’t the Problem But There is a Problem

We got Tread on
Yesterday I wrote an article with the same title as this one, except it was about Democrats. Today it's the Republican's turn. I'm not letting them off the hook. I feel strongly that America is in a slump and yesterday I talked about part of why I feel the Democrats are to blame. The Republicans own just as much of the blame. They do not get a pass! I know it is popular to, and frankly easy, to de...

Democrats: Your Message isn’t the Problem But There IS a Problem

I realize that pretty much everyone and their mother has analyzed why the Democrats have been losing so badly. Notice I didn't say lost. I wasn't talking about just the presidential election. The Democrat party has been losing for over a decade now. They have lost in local and congressional elections to the point where many pundits no longer consider them a national party but rather a marginal one...

Trump Executive Order on Obamacare

As I read about Trumps recent executive order aimed at Obamacare I thought how unique it was to have a politician get into office and actually do the things they promised. Then I realized that Trump isn't a politician. So their record of broken promises remains intact, he isn't one of them. https://youtu.be/T2DnH-iTuzQ The order Trump signed does not increase the power of the presidency either. ...

Obama was Objectively a Bad President

"The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon." - George Washington
Obama was a bad president. Often such statements are opinion, subjective in nature. But I submit that this assessment of Obama as a bad president is an objective assessment, not an opinion, not subjective in nature. The job of president has certain criteria. Failure to meet those requirements means failure at the job. Obama failed to meet those requirements. Not just any requirement though would ...

Thoughts on the Inauguration of President Donald J. Trump

Just remember, everyone thought John Adams was an ass too
It's no exaggeration to say that in his day John Adams was thought of as a bit of an ass. To many he was arrogant, pushy, narrow minded, and undiplomatic. By his own admission he was all those things, but he still managed to be one of the greatest men this country has ever known. Today Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States of America. I think he deserves all th...

Free Speech: A Tale of Trademarks, a Rooster, and a Dangerous Faggot

Milo is Dangerous
Let's make sure we understand right up front that the first amendment was designed to protect "hate" speech. That is the point of the first amendment. Speech that is acceptable doesn't need protecting. There's no one out there telling people not to say the things that everyone wants to hear, makes them feel warm and fuzzy, or that follow the party line. It's the speech that people don't like that ...
