President Obama Refuses to Treat the Border Crisis Seriously

Right now, a legal and humanitarian crisis is unfolding on our Southern border. And our President simply cannot bring himself to take the problem seriously. By all accounts, tens of thousands of refugees have spilled across the border, many of whom are unaccompanied minors or single parents. A large plurality of the accumulated mass are not illegal immigrants seeking to come here for work, but | Read More »

Gun Control Will Never Stop Barbarism

Overall, roughly 25% to 30% of nonfatal shootings result in an arrest, compared with arrests in about 80% of homicides, according to an NYPD spokesman.(HT: New York Daily News) “It’s Groundhog Day here in Chicago” is how Police Superintendent | Read More »

The Christian Thing to Do

“I do not think we should let these people stay here. But I think while here we should, in private charity, show mercy and give comfort where we can.” Christians are used to hearing people say “it’s the Christian thing to do.” Most often, it is by people deeply hostile to Christianity who say it.

Let’s Not Impeach Obama

“So Sue Me!” Taunts His Most Grandiloquent Emperor of The Sand-Trap. If Barack Obama can’t do anything intelligent to better the American Nation’s commonweal, then perhaps John Boehner can distract attention away from the emperor’s sartorial elegance. I have high hopes that John Boehner’s lawsuit threats are ultimately rhetorical. He was smart enough not to fall into the trap of impeaching. That would be Sarah | Read More »

John Boehner is Right on Impeachment

I maintain that John Boehner’s lawsuit against the President is a political stunt. There may be some plausible legal grounds to get the suit into court, but even if successful President Obama will be out of office before such a suit is finally resolved. It’s a political stunt wasting taxpayer dollars. I maintain that the House Republicans should be more interested in doing what is | Read More »

The stress of citizenship

I once worked for a company that put its employees through one of those lengthy performance evaluations that included psych-test essay questions, such as “How do you define ‘stress,’ and how could you reduce the amount of stress in your workday?”  I was young and new to such evaluations, so I’d never really thought much about “stress” before.  I was convinced it had nothing to | Read More »
