Millennials and Abortion
This is an almost two-month old opinion piece at the Botson Globe, but it fits in well with what’s going on today. Millennials have also grown up amid the grim images of abortion and its aftermath. For many, the willful destruction of life in the womb seems less an act of “reproductive freedom” than an act of violence against an innocent victim. All of them | Read More »

The Center for Medical Progress and Our Broken Rule of Law
The ongoing Planned Parenthood scandal is a fascinating story that has a lot of facets that illustrate many disturbing aspects of American society. Although it is difficult to do so, I’m going to ask readers here to set aside the horrifying aspects related to abortion and the sale of baby parts for a moment to focus on one particular aspect that has largely gone unnoticed. | Read More »
New polls: Trump in the lead nationwide and Trump beats Bush in Florida
A couple of new polls have been released that are significant for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, they both have reputable sample sizes and are actual surveys, not the trash you get from You.gov and Zogby Interactive. Second they show Donald Trump with a substantial lead over any of his rivals. First up, and the juiciest, is one by the Saint Petersburg Times. | Read More »

How Weaponized Christophobia Becomes Religious Persecution
There are six iterative steps by which religions go from being accepted, to being increasingly persecuted, and finally to being singled out for purging and execution. They follow below. 1) Stereotyping – Develop a negative image of the faith. Assume that it applies to all adherents without loss of generality. 2) Justification of Hatred – Develop a narrative that identifies the faith as as the | Read More »
Shut Down The Government. Now.
Your taxpayer dollars are being used to subsidize an organization that extracts children, weeks from birth and capable of feeling pain and hearing, from their mothers’ wombs. The organization inserts instruments into the soft part of the child’s skull, rips it open, and extracts its brain. It then crushes the head and pulls it further out of the womb. From there it extracts the child’s | Read More »

Tech at Night: Corrupt Democrat supports corrupt radio bill
So the Local Radio Fairness Act is purely an act of picking winners and losers, a corrupt means of trying to curry favor with local media stations, come re-election time. I normally hate arguments like that but look, what legitimate reason is there to hand out copyright exemptions? A lot of members of both parties are rushing in to buy love, but it shouldn’t surprise | Read More »

Kevin McCarthy: not as bad as we’d thought
I posted earlier today on the reluctance of the GOP to stand for much of anything other than perpetuating itself. Every once in a while there is a spark of hope in the darkness that keeps we base voters plodding forward. When one of those happens, it is only fitting that we acknowledge it. Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) 63% is not a | Read More »

Hillary Clinton agrees Planned Parenthood should be investigated
Color me gobsmacked. It is a sign of just how damaging the videos of Planned Parenthood have been that Hillary Clinton, the recipient of the 2009 Genocide of Untermenschen Margaret Sanger Award, has tepidly agreed that an investigation is in order. Calling them “disturbing,” Hillary Clinton said undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted fetal tissue raise questions about the process | Read More »

Time for the GOP to Crap or Get Off the Pot
Anyone who has known me for longer than about 30 minutes knows that I am a Boston Red Sox fan. After the collapse in the 1986 World Series, that experience was, for about 15 years, an unmitigated experience of misery and the addition of reasons for Red Sox fans to nurse their massive inferiority complex with respect to the New York Yankees. However, beginning in | Read More »
