The unholy alliance of climate change & income ine…

The other day I read an article which referenced the NAACP’s climate justice program.  I thought to myself, why would an institution, whose purpose is to advance colored people, care about climate change?  Then I asked, what’s climate justice?  Then it dawned on me, the reason progressives care so much about climate change is because it’s a back-door way to advance their main concern.    Put yourself in the shoes of the NAACP.  They want to make life better for blacks and the best way to achieve that, in their mind, is to tax rich white people.  Taxing the rich for the purpose of helping the poor will undoubtedly bring out the usual conservative talking points about how government should allow the free market to decide how income is distributed or the usual accusations of socialism.…

The Disaster of What Basic Income Would Become

Watching the goings-on in the modern academia is a hazardous occupation.

On Rights

A right, according to Webster’s, is “something to which one has a just claim.” The word is often uttered in sonorous phrases like “natural rights,” “human rights” and “equal and inalienable rights.” So today I’ll ask, and try to answer, a f…

Why did you choose your religion?

I'm not saying the Catholic church is correct in their beliefs, but how is the belief that an individual can interpret the bible according to their own predilections better? How do Protestants think their beliefs are more in line with the bible when they have less historical roots than the Catholic …

Christ Wants to Shatter Our Delusions

I am living in a fantasy when I view life as it circles around me.
