We Need More Guns

Gun
Just the fact that they call it "gun culture" means they still don't understand the 2nd amendment. I'm not saying there isn't a sub-culture where guns are a vital part. There is, but it's not at all like leftists think it is. It's simply those people for whom guns are also a hobby. They follow guns the way some people follow football. They collect them, appreciate the workmanship, know all the bra...

A Few Words on the Current Tax Bill

Tax Reform Cartoon
Just a note on the current tax bill weaving its way through Congress. It doesn't actually cut taxes. All it does is shuffle the money around so some people pay less. They call that a tax cut. A tax cut is when the government itself receives less money from the people. In this bill they end up getting the same amount by taking more from some people and less from others. Though that is great for t...

The Dinosaur Heresies by Robert T. Bakker Ph.D.

The Dinosaur Heresies by Robert T. Bakker Ph.D.
Having studied dinosaurs since I was a child there were things about what I was taught that didn't seem to really work for me. The idea of them as cold-blooded for example. When I ran across this book by Robert Bakker it was a revelation to me and caused me to see these animals in a whole new way. More and more these views, once (as the title suggests) considered heretical are now the prevailin...

How Do You Kill 11 Million People? by Andy Andrews

How Do You Kill 11 Million People? by Andy Andrews
How Do You Kill 11 Million People?: Why the Truth Matters More Than You Think by Andy Andrews is an essay that will take you about 25 minutes or less to read. It attempts to address the question of the title which should be one we all wonder about. How, exactly, were the Nazis able to kill so many non-combatants? Not only Jews, but Gypsies, gays, and other targeted groups were slaughtered. Why did...

Food and Culture Go Hand in Hand: Appropriate some today!

Pan Dulce
Pastries are wonderful and I love to visit local German bakeries, French pâtisserie, or a Mexican panadería. It's interesting how many of the wonderful things we eat from around the world are actually products of cultural appropriation. That act much maligned by the left has given rise to popular dishes quite associated with a particular country, from which they did not originate. Food is the best...

Being Anti-War Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Means

Power of War
Obama was the bomber in chief, and the drone commander extraordinaire. Though I think it is high time we had a discussion in America about war powers I think it's a bit disgusting we are having it now after so many hundreds of thousands have been killed by us over the last 15 years. The death toll in Iraq alone is estimated to be over 500,000 people. We had better be darn sure of our motivations a...

Photographer who altered shot of Lupita Nyong’o apologises

Just a couple of observations on this one. Actress, Lupita Nyong'o was photographed for a magazine cover. They edited out her pony tail. This has people upset and the magazine apologizing. Black people have kinky hair, as you likely know, and it sometimes does just whatever it wants to do. Over the years lots of ways of dealing with this have cropped up. Some use corn rows, some straiten, some fla...

Judge Moore Case Shows Rot in Washington DC

Judge Roy Moore
I don't know much about this Judge and once Democrat turned Republican candidate. Not as far as his politics or person are concerned. What I do know he is an outsider, wanted by Bannon and not by the establishment (Bannon has said his new life's work is to remove the current Republican leadership). I know he has been accused of a sexual assault which occurred in 1977. I know no charges have been f...

Regeneration of the entire human epidermis!

Genes
This is just incredible. This poor child had a rare disease that causes the skin to become weak and grow sores that are very painful. Doctors were able to use genetic therapy to basically give him a new skin. It won't be long before there is a cure for most things that ail us. Our teeth won't rot, our eyes won't dim, and our minds will stay sharp until the end of our very long lives. "The you...

Donna Brazile – Ignore Corruption Until it Suits You

Ignore Corruption Until
https://youtu.be/XKQPIPGwWpc Brazile's book seems full of revelations of corruption but this dedication seems perhaps to be the greatest revelation of all. She dedicated the book to Seth Rich and labeled him a "patriot". In case you don't recall he was the staffer who was murdered. It was reported to be a robbery gone wrong but the circumstances were mysterious. It seems Brazile knew something....

Milo, Shapiro, and Trump are Trolls that Play to the Mob Mentality

Milo
I've brought up Milo Yiannopoulos a few times. I reviewed his book. I can't call myself a "fan" but then I don't really say that about anyone. But what I do say is that I get Milo. Meaning I understand what he's up to. That doesn't mean I'm all that clever, it just means I listen. Milo, you see, is quite upfront about what he's up to. If he's taken at face value, he's a troll. He's even named his ...

Conservation vs. Environmentalism

Woman hugging a tree
I am not an environmentalist. I am a conservationist. There is a difference. That difference really is summed up by the focus of the efforts. A conservationist wants to conserve nature for the benefit of man while an environmentalist has as focus nature itself. I often say the latter is a religion with mother nature as a god. Conservation, on the other hand, is anthropological. Often, in conser...

It’s Time to Take the Gaia Hypothesis Seriously

Gaia
Can a planet be alive? That's the question the author of the below article is asking. The answer is no. If it were alive then it wouldn't be a planet. It would be an organism rather than a planet which simply hosts organisms. The below linked article talks about a hypothesis, known as Gaia, which basically does posit that the earth is an organism. This hypothesis has been around for a while now an...

Yes Daily Wire You CAN Separate the Art from the Artist

Spacey and Weinstein
What utter hogwash this is! This author thinks that the concept of separating the art from the artist is a con man's game. In other words, if someone does something bad, their art is somehow tainted and bad as well. If they were a dark and evil person, somehow, their art will be imbued with that evil. The implication being you might catch it. As if the art becomes a talisman for the power of the a...

Daily Wire Writes About Incest While Practicing Its Own Kind of Incest

Group
I must admit I'm getting a little tired of the The Daily Wire and am considering removing it from my news feed. The Daily Wire is one of the most biased news sources out there. So much of what I read there is poorly thought out, often poorly written, and most certainly intellectually vapid. Not all of course, but in ever increasing frequency. That I happen to agree with them on various issues d...
