    Leftists Lie: CEOs do not earn 300 times the average American

    Does the average Chief Executive Officer earn 300 times the average American? News media outlets have reported and repeated this finding for over a decade, with the multiple ranging from 297 to 354 times the average American worker (some also report that the ratio was even higher before the recession in 2000). This data point has been repeated by political pundits, politicians, pontificators, and provocateurs | Read More »

    Courts side against Christian baker. Again.

    The Washington Post reports that the Colorado Court of Appeals has ruled against Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips. “[The Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act] prohibits places of public accommodations from basing their refusal to serve customers on their sexual orientation, and Masterpiece violated Colorado’s public accommodations law by refusing to create a wedding cake for Craig’s and Mullins’ same-sex wedding celebration,” the ruling states. The ruling states that | Read More »

    Obamacare Gets a D+ by its own standards

    A while back, President Obama stated he’d give his time as president a B+. His signature legislation, the Patient Protecion and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), which most now simply call “Obamacare,” hasn’t done so well. Today, MSNBC is ecstatically reporting that the number of uninsured Americans is down to 29 million people, from 51 million before the legislation was enacted. Adding health insurance coverage for | Read More »

    The Case for the Light Fleet Carrier

    The term “Light Aircraft Carrier” has been much-maligned over more than half a century. The original light carriers, which were really converted light cruisers rebuilt to give the U.S. Navy some desperately needed additional flat-tops during the early days of World War II, were woefully ineffective stop-gaps, barely better than the by-then obsolete USS Langley. The current group of “Light Carriers,” the V/STOL (Vertical/Short Take-Off | Read More »

    Local NAACP President is White. So what?

    Apparently, Rachel Dolezal, the President of the Spokane, Washington NAACP, is white. It seems she went to a tanning bed, dyed her hair darker, and got it tightly curled so as to appear more African American. Her parents have outed her. From The Guardian: Her parents claim that, post-divorce in 2004, her daughter began to adapt her appearance. “Rachel has wanted to be somebody she’s | Read More »

    Frat boys spit on, throw beer bottles at wounded warriors

    Once again, a fraternity group appears to have embarrassed itself with lewd and hateful behavior. This time, members of a fraternity were observed spitting on and throwing beer bottles at wounded warriors on a retreat in Florida. Fox News reports: Investigations have been launched at two universities over accusations that fraternity members taunted wounded war heroes, urinated on an American flag, and spit on a | Read More »

    The CEO pay ratio isn’t as big as you’ve been told

    Hillary Clinton has decided to make income inequality, especially the compensation of CEOs, a major focal point of her campaign.  Last week she announced her campaign for President and has criticized the pay gap between higher executives and average workers. From Reuters: Striking a populist note, Clinton, who announced on Sunday she was running for president in 2016, said American families were still facing financial | Read More »

    In praise of worship

    God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Ephesians 3:10-11, NLT) Jon Gabriel has a post up about modern evangelical churches and in particular contemporary Christian music. In his post, | Read More »

    Pushing back the gay rights goalposts

    In my last post, I discussed the issue of marriage as a civil right versus the Constitutional right of freedom of religion. Essentially, the secular view of marriage as being between two people who love each other joining to form a single household is completely incompatible with the Judeo-Christian view of marriage, that being that a union is between a man, a woman and God. | Read More »

    Irreconcilable Differences

    With the Supreme Court taking on two different same sex marriage cases, two seemingly related yet in this case opposing American concepts are clashing: The right to free association and individual liberty, and the right to practice one’s religion. The Supreme Court will take on the Federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Proposition 8, which bans same sex marriage in California. However, the | Read More »
