Transgender, Transracial, Identification or Misidentification?
Last year we witnessed the case of a Caucasian woman who “identifies” as a “Transracial” African-American. Currently, we are witnessing controversy and protest of laws in North Carolina and other states regarding the use of restrooms, locker rooms, and showers by people who “identify” as the opposite sex. All of this has resulted in much controversy; but, what is the root cause of this? The | Read More »
Do Representatives Represent Non-Citizens?
The Supreme Court is treating citizenship as if it is irrelevant! They are saying that legislative districts should be drawn to include illegal immigrants because they reside in the district. The justices are apparently trying to hang their hat on the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment. Writing for the Court, Justice Ginsberg said, “As the Framers of the Constitution and the 14th Amendment | Read More »
Laws Don’t Prevent Crime and Terrorism
Terrorists and criminals don’t care about laws against guns or anything else. Laws don’t stop or prevent terrorism or crime; they just define it. Armed force stops crime and terrorism. The weapons used in the Paris attacks were illegal. It didn’t matter that they were illegal in France. That didn’t stop the attacks. Murder has been illegal since the beginning of time, yet that did | Read More »
200,000 Refugees to the U.S. or ISIS Infiltrators?
The Obama Administration just announced that it wants to admit 200,000 Syrian “refugees” into this country. These people found refuge from war when they reached Turkey.

Donald Trump, Megyn Kelly, and Fox News
Donald Trump feels that he was victimized by Megyn Kelly at the Fox News Debate. Ms. Kelly asked Mr. Trump a question about his prior remarks about women. Mr. Trump apparently felt that the question was unfair so he verbally attacked Megyn Kelly. Ms. Kelly’s question at the debate was not a softball question, but she was not ugly or disrespectful.

Iran Nuclear Deal Is A Treaty
The Iran nuclear deal is a treaty. From Merriam-Webster.com: “Treaty – an official agreement that is made between two or more countries or groups.” Since this is “an agreement made between two or more countries,” by definition, it is a treaty.

Ebola is a Disease; It is not a Political Issue
Diseases, like death, do not recognize ANY human social or political division. If Ebola were so difficult to catch, as some have suggested, it would not be a pandemic in three African countries and health care professionals would not be catching it. This is not an issue of one group of people against another group of people. This is an issue of health verses illness. Isolating Ebola | Read More »
