  • Ignorance and Illogicality of Many Atheists

    I often share on my personal Facebook page posts by Freedom From Atheism Foundation (FFAF) . This group provides many snappy and ready quotations, slogans and images that are perfectly suited to Facebook and in general to today's many time-poor and attention-span-even-poorer people. The problem is that somebody who hasn't bothered to take the effort to examine a topic like the existence of God needs much more than a few lines or a graphic, which is why I think that I'll put the brakes on this habit of mine. The last straw has been the following exchange of comments...
  • This Lesbian’s Daughter Has Had Enough

    My name is Rivka Edelman, and I am the product of same-sex parenting. Recently I published an essay on Public Discourse about the ruthless misogyny that pervades LBGT culture. I pointed out it that it can and will victimize women and children with impunity and then, in America’s narcissistic fugue, get hailed as brave and heroic. Scott Rose has made threats of violence against Ryan T. Anderson, the editor who published my piece on October 2, 2014: Since my essay was published, there have been hundreds, maybe thousands, of posts calling me a liar or trying to shame, discredit, intimidate,...

    New Post owner Jeff Bezos ought to relieve Balko of his position. He has become too embarrassing to keep on the payroll The justified police killing of black thug Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, was used by the media to accuse the police of being “militarized” when they brought out the heavy equipment to cope with rioters. At the same time, Brown was portrayed as an innocent black man shot with his hands up. All of this was false, and it has now been proven to be false. Anti-police protesters, joined by outside agitators, some of them communists, were said...

    The cleansing of all bodily orifices of dead Ebola victims by relatives of the same gender is a big factor in the uncontrollable spread of this deadly disease in West Africa. Yet our corrupt media refuse to fully vet this principle cause of contagion thereby allowing silence to spread the hemorrhagic disease. Ancient burial traditions, so deeply rooted in the native culture that government authorities are unable to bridge the gap of distrust, really are big factors because healthy relatives are required to put their hands into the Ebola bodies, still warm, just after death. And commonly known is the...

    We need our government to transition social welfare programs to private non-profit organizations that seek their funding directly from the people and the businesses of America, Whenever there is lots of money in a centralized source, there is a need to take extraordinary measures to keep it from being stolen. Yet we have a federal government that is involved in the centralized collection and spending of trillions of dollars that is being run by thieves. These thieves have a system of propagandists and compliant news media that have convinced millions of people that this system is working for the common...

    The Democratic Party depends on voting blocs of less educated, less wealthy, more knee-jerk voters than the Republican Party, As this is being written, Rasmussen Reports says that 48% of likely voters approve of President Obama’s performance in office while 50% disapproved. Other polls indicate far more unhappiness with Obama, but in general one must conclude that half the voters are idiots. He is an enormous failure domestically and with his foreign relations. In early July, a Quinnipiac University national poll found that Obama was regarded as “the worst president since World War II.” The only poll that counts will...

    Hard to hang onto Big Boo Man Status when so many of your observers know that when it comes to Ebola, Obama long ago mounted his girly bike and rode off into the do-nothing sunset. That Americans aren’t caving in to widespread hysteria on the current Ebola outbreak scare is a major headache for propagandist president Barack Hussein Obama. BHO must have been in a real flap when he took to the microphones for his weekly radio address on Saturday: “This is a serious disease,” he said, “but we can’t give in to hysteria or fear, because that only makes...
  • Democrats Support Voter Fraud When Opposing Picture ID’s

    The Supreme Court recently upheld a Texas voter ID law. This outrageous piece of legislation would require voters to present a photo ID prior to voting. This is the same sort of requirement that is in place in nearly every country in the world. India requires a photo ID in order to vote, almost every country in Europe has such a requirement. Yet here in the United States requiring a photo ID to vote is met with howls of racism from the Democrats. Interestingly here in Michigan to vote in the Democrats Presidential primary in 2012 voters had to present...

    Bushmeat -specifically bats known to carry strains of the deadly Ebola virus- is now believed to be behind the start of today's unsettling Ebola crisis.  The first victim of the current outbreak in humans was a two-year-old child in Guinea -who’s family hunted bats for food- and it's starting to look like the common African practice of eating bushmeat could very well be responsible for the mess we now find ourselves in. The family said to have introduced the disease to the human race are from the village of Gueckedou in SE Guinea, where bats known to carry the Ebola virus are...

    Apparently asking $15 an hour for fast food workers isn’t enough so unappreciated socialists in Seattle are demanding the minimum wage be raised to a “paltry” $20 an hour. There are skilled and educated professionals who don’t command such a wage, not to mention soldiers facing death daily on the front lines of tyranny, but these hypocrites who religiously shell out $5 for a cup of Joe are demanding social justice because they feel slighted by more accomplished Americans? If radical leftists ever succeed in enacting such a law, and I believe it’s only a matter of time before they...

Please 'splain that to us." I will explain it.  MDA is playing a very long game.   In order to be effective, they have to reduce the number of guns in society by large, large, amounts.  They have to avoid considering any benefits gained from gun ownership.  Here is how I...

His condition kept deteriorating, and he was barely able to talk. Wathen managed to whisper to a nurse his wish to see his dog, Bubba, just one more time.

    This video is worth watching to see how Judge Judy quickly decimates a woman who thinks she’s entitled to other people’s money. She thinks she can borrow $2,000 from a friend and never pay it back. She uses every excuse in the book, claiming because her friend and her husband “have money” (in her opinion), she shouldn’t have to pay it back. Unlike her friend – who also has children – she doesn’t work. She then uses her kids – she has five, her choice – to then justify not repaying her friend, calling her kids her job! This is...

Because Rudy Quilon was homeless following his release from prison, Harvill Richardson permitted Quilon to move into his home while he got back on his feet. Over the next five months, Quilon became increasingly unwelcome as he bragged about having been convicted for murder and armed robbery, his previous experiences as a gang member, and killing a “snitch” in prison....

Upon taking office, Dictator Roosevelt made private ownership of gold illegal and sent government agents to invade private homes and businesses searching for gold to confiscate with fervor the Spanish Conquistadors would be proud of. Before Roosevelt’s illegal Gestapo...

In Kentucky, Alison Lundergan Grimes has clung tightly to both Bill and Hillary Clinton as she tries to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell(R).

    Senator Coburn of Oklahoma has been attempting to remove the ban on carrying guns on lands managed by the Army Corps of Engineer for several years.   Perhaps the Obama administration should have agreed to the legislative compromise before the ban was challenged in court.   Now the Corps  is faced with a court decision citing Peruta in the Ninth Circuit, that declares that carry outside of the home is a constitutional right.  On 10 January, 2014, Judge B. Lynn Winmill of the United States District Court for the District of Idaho, issued a preliminary injunction against the Army...

Good luck finding a place to live in this Silicon Valley enclave. The least expensive home for sale in the 94027 ZIP code is a 1,370-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath bungalow. In other words, a starter home–with an asking price of $1.499 million. The median price of the 24 homes listed for sale over the summer was $9.03 million, making Atherton the most expensive ZIP code in America for the second year in a row. “Atherton...

    No-one doubts that there will be people who hate Jews. The most obvious example is devout and observant Muslims, who are commanded by their religion to do so. They are also ordered to hate Christians, but for some reason the latter injunction doesn't evoke even a fraction of the emotion inspired by the former, despite the fact that an infinitely higher number of Christians than Jews suffer the consequences of this today. Incidentally - this is not relevant to the rest of the article -, I've found what I consider a better way to distinguish between Muslims of various...

Masks obscure.  Costumes disguise.  It’s okay for kids to pretend they are someone else, when they play.  It’s even fun to dress up.  But take a night when everyone is in disguise, and it’s all about secrecy.  And fear.  The purpose of Halloween is to scare and be...

    ST. LOUIS, Missouri — If the protests in Ferguson and St. Louis in recent months have an anthem, it isn’t “We Shall Overcome,” or “Wade in the Water,” or any other civil rights-era song. It’s a darker, more confrontational song – Lil Boosie’s “F*** the Police.” When the chorus of Lil Boosie’s song wasn’t blaring on a giant sound system carted through the crowd at night, it showed up in chants or printed on posters. As night fell, the protests morphed into a party, with demonstrators dancing out on the street and on top of cars. With few ways for...

An outstanding 18 page analysis of the 31 year old Democrat, done by ballotpedia.org, reveals this staggering statistic which our heavy handed editorialists will never tell you. “From 2011 to 2012, Murphy’s yearly net worth jumped from $205,682 to $3,185,011,...

    A week ago I wrote an article about the unicorn event of an open carrier having his firearm stolen by an armed robber.   It is only the second event that has been documented.   Numerous pundits sided with those who want their political opponents disarmed.   An important detail was left out of the story. Multnomah County, where the robbery took place, requires that openly carried guns must be unloaded.   The ordinance makes it an offense to possess a loaded magazine or speed loader if you do not have a concealed carry permit.  As the open carrier was barely old enough...
  • 3 Reasons Why Halloween is Stupid – Part 2

    Halloween is a celebration of fear, secrecy, darkness, death, and mayhem.  It ruins children and coats the poison with candy.  Halloween is a holiday for the ignorant, a day set aside to honor a lack of knowledge, by people who don’t care enough to gain it.  Halloween is a feast of stupid self-indulgence.  There’s nothing positive I can say about that day, no matter how much fun it may be to dress up, join a bunch of other people, walk door to door demanding candy, then go home and gorge yourself on it while watching horror movies. In Part 1,...
  • What does Obama's punt on Holder replacement mean?

    The Hill ^ | October 17, 2014 | Makan Delrahim, contributor
    On Tuesday, exactly three weeks before the midterm elections, the White House confirmed that President Obama would not be nominating a new attorney general until after the elections. Media reports indicate that the decision to delay was requested by Senate Democrats and was done to avoid the nomination being "caught up in election year politics." Sen. Chuck Grassley (Iowa), the ranking Republican (and if the Republicans take back the majority, the next chairman) of the Senate Judiciary Committee, in equating the move to the president's delay of the threatened executive action on immigration, said that "[f]irst it was immigration, and...

  • How a Racist Political Hashtag Spread Like the Ebola Virus ("Obola")

    The World Health Organization said on Tuesday that the world could be seeing 10,000 new Ebola cases per week before Christmas. U.S. pundits seem more concerned with using Ebola to berate President Obama rather than dealing with the impact of the disease. At a time when the nation needs to unite around protecting the country from an epidemic, rational discussion of Ebola is competing with a new contagion—right-wing racism, and it’s spreading like, well, you know what. 10/06/14 18:29 UTC@DineshDSouza Which is worse: EBOLA, the disease; or OBOLA, the dream from his father?(with illustration) https://t.co/zsWqu4KuqR Enter #obola, a diseased little...

    In case you were too consumed with Ebola news yesterday to notice this, here’s a belated FYI that America’s going to put the Middle East’s oil barons out of business before your grandkids are out of college. Assuming the Ebola doesn’t get us first, I mean. Lockheed has a webpage dedicated to its new breakthrough in compact fusion reactors but this write-up in Aviation Week is the most thorough explanation I’ve seen of how it would actually work. If I understand it correctly, which I probably don’t, the problem with current fusion reactors is that they’re too darned big and...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 10/16/14 | Douglas V. Gibbs
    Dash and Duggar verbalized what many people believe, but dare not say, because of the politically correct hard-left speech-nazis The slaughter of millions of innocent lives, and the enslavement of millions of people, are examples of pure unadulterrated evil. Nobody questions using the word “evil” when referring to the slaughter of millions of Jews during the Nazi Holocaust, and the enslavement of millions upon millions of people in the history of slavery on a global scale. In the United States, slavery did not end until after a war that killed over 600,000 young lives was fought, and even then, racism...
  • Tattoo removal business booming as inked teens grow up

    The year is 2001. Eighteen-year-old Rees Barnett impulsively walks into a tattoo parlour and picks the trendiest designs off the wall display: a tribal arm band and a shoulder tribal tattoo. But over the years, both those symbols quickly went from cool to ​cliché, leaving Barnett with tattoo regret. “Unfortunately, I can’t blame it on booze,” he said. “[It's] one of those bad decisions that you wake up and realize, oh crap, I’m stuck with these.” Now, at age 32, the pension fund analyst is erasing this part of his past at Precision Laser Tattoo Removal in Toronto. A technician...
