Grandma dropping dimes

I’m surprised these were even allowed on TV.

A threatening thought

When you read progressive writing and the word “threatened” appears, 99% of the time you can insert the word “repulsed” to get at the real truth. Example: Conservative men are threatened by a brash woman like me.

Sobran on sex

What is this thing called Sex? The indispensable word “sex” has been around for a long long time, but it always meant gender. Then, early in this century, as nearly as I can judge, it came to mean what the … Continue reading

At the climax of election hysteria…

Ex 18:21: “You shall select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain.” Here’s a true saying about politics: he who pays the piper calls the tune. There is a … Continue reading

Abortion: a poem

I’m hardly a fan of poetry, but this short one is a swift, heavy punch.

Antonin Scalia, RIP… and Satan’s throne

Despite quibbles here and there, Justice Scalia was always one of those Catholics I admired from afar, much like Pat Buchanan. His serious intellect, integrity, vibrant and masculine wit, and familial and religious devotion was a potent lure. I admired … Continue reading

Study Bible Notes and Commentaries

Count me in favor of study Bibles and commentaries. Often when reading a chapter I get stuck on a passage, and can’t get past it. What does it mean? When I check a comment on the passage, 90% of the … Continue reading

Bible apps: Olive Tree, Logos, Accordance

As I’m aging I’m finding it increasingly to read on paper books without getting a headache. For some reason I can read without problems on a computer or Kindle. Maybe it’s the light. I was using free apps on my … Continue reading

Yes, yes, no labels

I haven’t figured out who funds the Ad Council, which seems to have a lot of money and is fond of airbrushed progressive propaganda. It sounds like much of its money comes from government agencies. Another thing I wish we … Continue reading

Fox News: the confirmer of cultural drift

I was watching an interview on Fox News, trying to figure out why it was a big deal for a woman to access a woman’s locker room. After a few minutes I realized that they were actually discussing a cross-dressing … Continue reading

The Republicans and Planned Parenthood

Couple of interesting stories on Republicans. First, this article on how Jeb Bush was a director on a Michael Bloomberg “philanthropy” that provided tens of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood. Jeb’s grandfather Prescott was strongly affiliated with Planned Parenthood. … Continue reading

Killers on the run

Poor Planned Parenthood. For all those years the media gatekeepers maintained mostly silence about abortion, except of course to attack those who hate it. However, these Center for Medical Progress videos exploded into public view thanks to the internet and … Continue reading

Make me a cake!

I haven’t followed the specifics of these religious freedom restoration laws in Arkansas and Indiana, but when the governor of Arkansas assured constituents the other day that his own son signed the petition to amend it, it was pretty clear … Continue reading

Here’s Johnny

It’s interesting how we have a peculiar interest in certain cultural figures. I think back sometimes on the men who were giants in 1970s and 1980s culture. A generation exists now that knows their names but little about them. In … Continue reading

A surprising ingredient in our “fabric”

Occasionally you run across a “wisdom of the wise” whopper so risible that only a college professor could come up with it. A few days ago, President Obama informed us that “here in America, Islam has been woven into the … Continue reading

The focus on now

In libertarian or internet circles, you sometimes hear people talk about the “false left-right paradigm.” The idea is that manipulators create divisive issues that get people riled up to expend their energies fighting one another, while nothing much changes behind … Continue reading

Yet another one

Honestly, I thought Ernest Angely died years ago. But he’s still up in Akron, OH, with his toupee and faith-healing “ministry.” And now this. Disgrace and heresy are ever-present in televangelism. Pedophilia, child abuse, sodomy… sadly nothing new there. Forced … Continue reading

CCM is lame, but is it dangerous too?

I liked Jars of Clay’s first CD back in the 1990s, so hearing Dan Haseltine’s (at best) mealy-mouth words about gay marriage was disappointing. But it wasn’t surprising. I gave up on the Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) scene long ago… … Continue reading

Oh no, it’s unregulated!

A fitness article recently instructed readers to be careful because the fitness industry is largely unregulated. I reacted the way I often do when reading this common sentiment: Oh no! What are we going to do? I feel so unmoored … Continue reading

The least Christlike person of all

Almost every time someone comments that a certain Christian or Christian group isn’t being Christ-like, it’s when they actually are being Christ-like by calling sin – usually sodomy – “sin.” If those who make this glib comment actually understood the … Continue reading

A&E’s magnanimity

Reading A&E’s reasoning for reinstating Phil Robertson reminded me of an old Joe Sobran quote: Liberalism wants us to ‘set aside our differences,’ as if our differences don’t really matter as much as the things on which we can all … Continue reading

The real argument against government health care

I heard a radio host say that most people support a “right” to health care. However, support vanishes once people realize that coverage will go down and costs will go up. All true. But arguing from the vantage point of … Continue reading

The shutdown

I support the government shutdown, especially if they quit teasing me and make it permanent. Of course, only a small part of the government is shut down. And as has been said here many times, any politician who talks about … Continue reading

A slight compliment

Well, if I can issue a slight compliment to Barack Obama, the abortionist’s friend, he does seem a bit more reluctant than your average Republican to play bombs away in other countries. Of course, lots of killing continues in Afghanistan, … Continue reading

The end of the buzz

I highly commend the series of Riddleblog articles on “the buzz” in Orange County in the second half of the 20th century. Start at the beginning or with its terrific conclusion. The series explores the cool factor of many SoCal … Continue reading
