It’s easy to fall back on old habits. I’ve been eating paleo (a diet with too much kale imo) lately but yesterday I cheated with a piece of pizza. It was hard to resist, just sitting there all easy and familiar, unlike the effort to put together a paleo lunch. Whatever the issue, we’ve all dealt with, and sometimes failed, the challenge of changing what | Read More »
Yes, our culture has gotten that virulent in its ineffable hatred of Christianity. Students in a class at FAU were given the following instructions by Instructor Deandre Poole*:
1) Take out a sheet of paper.
2) Write the name “Jesus” on the sheet.
3) Place the sheet of paper on the floor.
4) Stomp on the paper.
You’ll notice that nobody in their right mind would assign a similar exercise with the name Muhammad. Muslims are more shall we say energetic in pushing back against such detestable apostasy. This time a Christian actually had the guts to push back. His name is Ryan Rotelas and he refused. Not only that, he also brought the incident to the attention of Mr. Poole’s boss.
Technological innovation has had a tremendous impact on our lives. Thanks to the Internet, we communicate with greater ease, I can do my job with relative simplicity, the hassle of traveling, banking, shopping and running various errands is reduced. Overall, life is better thanks to technology. But the development of modern technologies and digital tools is not without its challenges, also: An over-abundance of information | Read More »
Wow! Mrs. Peacock, in the toilet, with the scissors. I don’t think they have all the cards for that in your typical edition of Clue™. Should she not have done that? Let’s stop and evaluate…Is the average American still decent enough as a human being to even figure that out anymore? I’m disgusted enough to have to stop and wonder. Is America still a civilized enough nation to teach its citizens that this is a bad thing?
I have come to believe that if three people are prepared to make a lifetime commitment to love and care for each other in good times and in bad, the government shouldn’t deny them the opportunity to get married. One day, my son came home from playgroup and told my wife and I that he desires to marry both of his friends – a boy | Read More »
I live in Austin, Texas and I love it. It’s the live music capital of the world, has an amazing food culture and is nearly always warm and sunny. It’s a young city and a vibrant one, growing with a constant influx of folks from across the country including a lot of Californians. However, Austin is also something that most of Texas is not – | Read More »
I smiled as I passed him in the hallway. Surrounded, as always, by a group of people listening intently as he spoke animatedly in his uniquely captivating way. He had stopped by the blogger room earlier in the day to brief us on the latest concerning Pigford. I stopped short a few feet past him and paused to consider taking a picture with him. I | Read More »
Since Revealing Politics broke news of Democratic Colorado state Rep. Joe Salazar’s opinion on why women shouldn’t carry guns to defend themselves against rape, the left and the right have been in heated battle over the topic. Liberal radio talk show host and Fox News Contributor Leslie Marshall has spoken more than once in defense of Salazar claiming that, as a victim of attempted rape, she can | Read More »
OK Americans, you; and I mean you personally, have a serious ego problem. You are not grateful enough. President Obama works so hard for you, and you don’t show him adequate love. He’s had it. He won’t be putting up with any more of your shenanigans. Therefore, you are going to get both gun control and sequestration – good and hard!
You see, some people are actually bringing up the point that sequestration was a proposal put forth by The Executive Branch. The audacity of these peons! They think they are citizens when in fact they are subjects. Morale Conditioner, Chuck Todd lectures us on how to think properly harmonious social thoughts.
CHUCK TODD: Of all the dumb things Washington does, this “who started it” argument has proven to be one of the dumber ones, especially since we’re so close to the actual cuts going into place.
There is an obvious reason why all promises to enforce our immigration laws in exchange for amnesty are vacuous. You need to listen carefully to the rationale offered in support of amnesty. One day, you will hear the old straw man bromide “we can’t possibly go door-to-door and deport everyone.” The implication of this argument is that amnesty is a necessary evil at this point, | Read More »
Liberals have always held a bifurcated view of women and their need for government protection. On the one hand, they seek to use the boot of government to obliterate every last inherent difference between the genders, even in the most physical manifestations. On the other hand, they use big government programs to grant superfluous rights to women, as if they needed government to protect them | Read More »
In emails and on twitter I’m starting to see a common theme emerge. People are getting sick and tired of the nonsense on twitter and how “high school” it is. They’re tired of the snark. They’re questioning its effectiveness. Some are even suggesting that we give up on the platform, perhaps relegating it to Google+ status: have a twitter account, post links to your stuff, | Read More »
There is something Orwellian about the spectacle of a Senator who employed an illegal immigrant sex-offender unveiling an “immigration reform” proposal. In addition to Bob Menendez’s presence at the press conference yesterday, the competition over who could speak more Spanish, along with McCain’s passionate assertion that this proposal is virtually the same as the Kennedy plan, made this spectacle a full-court circus. It was even | Read More »
