    Fusion power is 30 years away, but not for the reason you think

    Fusion power is 30 years away, but not for the reason you think

    On the cover of TIME Magazine, they’ve got this stylized sun-looking thing with a very 1950’s kidnapper-note feel, with the headline “FUSION.”  As if they needed to hype the topic more, they added “unlimited energy,” “for everyone,” “forever.” Wow.  Let’s go out and save the planet, and build a few starships while we’re at it. The nucleus (pun intended) of the cover piece is that | Read More »

    Ben Carson is a Seventh Day Adventist. So What?

    Ben Carson is a Seventh Day Adventist.  So What?

    How important is it really that Dr. Ben Carson is a Seventh Day Adventist?  And does it matter if the Seventh Day Adventists are a cult? Donald Trump, the master at sowing doubt while retaining deniability (“it wouldn’t be nice if I said [insert insult here] but I have to be nice.”), said “Seventh Day Adventist, I don’t know about.  I just don’t know about.”  | Read More »

    So goes Baltimore as a third-world city, so Hillary would make America in their image

    So goes Baltimore as a third-world city, so Hillary would make America in their image

    Baltimore has just cemented its place as a tin-hat, third-world dictatorship, complete with nepotism and one-party-rule. Nick Mosby, husband of self-serving Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, is running for mayor.  Mosby—the husband—is a city councilman, and if he wins, would create the ultimate Democrat power couple in “Charm City.” If Mosby wins, Baltimore deserves him.

    Marty and Doc would be bored to death in the real 2015

    Marty and Doc would be bored to death in the real 2015

    I really couldn’t resist publishing this diary today.  It’s my weekly column from the local paper.  Enjoy. “I wish I could go back to the beginning of the season, and put some money on the Cubbies.” How could I not say that line, given that today is October 21, 2015: the date to which Marty McFly, “Doc” Brown and Jennifer Parker time-travel in their fusion-powered | Read More »

    Oops! Washington Post ‘glitch': retracted story confirms Biden run a bit early

    Oops! Washington Post 'glitch': retracted story confirms Biden run a bit early

    It’s one thing to get ahead of the news cycle, but this “oops!” seems to be a bit more—maybe the Washington Post knows something it’s not telling? Politico reported that WaPo hit “publish” just a bit too soon on a piece titled “Biden to launch a presidential campaign.”  It’s been simmering around the Internet that Biden may announce at the Iowa Jefferson-Jackson dinner on Saturday.  | Read More »

    Yes, the Civil War was about Slavery. Get over it.

    Yes, the Civil War was about Slavery. Get over it.

    Yesterday I wrote a piece about how it’s time for the Georgia legislature to stop honoring slavery, and it seems people have taken it way out of context. The first line of that post was “Is it time to put away the war between the states?  Yes, it is.  It’s way past time.”  But some people can’t put the Civil War away. I’m not sure if | Read More »

    It’s Time for the Georgia Legislature to Stop Honoring Slavery

    It's Time for the Georgia Legislature to Stop Honoring Slavery

    Is it time to put away the war between the states?  Yes, it is.  It’s way past time. The Civil War ended on April 9, 1865, just over 150 years ago.  Americans fighting Americans cost us over 750,000 lives—more than WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and both Iraq Wars combined.  And we’re still fighting the war. The State of Georgia owns an enormous chunk of rock | Read More »

    If you’re in one of these denominations that ‘blessed’ an abortion clinic, you might want to reconsider

    If you're in one of these denominations that 'blessed' an abortion clinic, you might want to reconsider

    Listen, I am not into bashing other people’s Christian denominations.  In fact, no church outside of heaven is perfect, including the denomination I attend.  But if you are a member of one of these denominations, you might want to ask some hard questions of their leadership, like “what are you going to do about this?” A United Methodist pastor, Rev. Laura Young, held a prayer | Read More »

    Obama Foreshadows Biden’s Entry and Hillary’s Exit

    Obama Foreshadows Biden's Entry and Hillary's Exit

    Here comes Uncle Joe, driving the bus over Hillary Clinton! Of course, Vice President Biden won’t announce until he’s coming in on a white horse, smile and all.  He’s already hitting his stride, approaching the margin of error in Iowa and climbing in New Hampshire, while Hillary tumbles. I’ve been predicting for a while now that Biden will enter the race the day after Hillary’s | Read More »

    Obama’s Secular Left are Hypocrites: ‘Judge as I say, not as I do’

    Obama’s Secular Left are Hypocrites: ‘Judge as I say, not as I do’

    The left has a favorite Bible verse, one that even President Obama can’t resist. Jesus said it in the Sermon on the Mount: “Judge not.” Of course, Obama is wont to misquote the Bible whenever he pleases, making up stuff that “the good book says” like “don’t throw stones at glass houses.” (Hint: they didn’t even have glass in Biblical days.) But judging is exactly what the | Read More »
