A different way to look at the climate change deba…

There are a lot of climate posts here. Each side thinks the other one is nuts, or scientifically off their rockers, or holding positions because of whichever shadowy interests they’re accused of backing. I’m on one side of this but I was absolutely not inclined to post about this because I’m not deep enough into the technical issues. But then a question occurred to me.   I’m going to ignore what I think is true and what I think is false and look at the question a different way. Assuming that there is some validity to each approach and that we will not be able to answer the validity question to anything like everyone’s satisfaction, and assuming further that there are at least some people with brains on each side who actually believe their position based strictly on the science (if you can’t accept …

The Reprobate Reconsideration of Rules

I browsed through a book recently, and I really think it is worthy of a review. The book is Answering Why by Mark C. Perna. Mr. Perna coins the term the “Why Generation” describing the Generation Z, those born in the 1995 to 2010 era.   Self-Created Problems Mr. Perna spoke to an ex…

The irony of Belief.

The fabric of our society is held together by belief in fictions. God, Government, Monarchy/Presidency, Nation and Money. None of them are real. They are all fictions that are imbued in power by us. They were invented by people and provide the cohesion that holds society together. The only reason …

Competing theories

We have two competing theories for the existence of the Universe.One says that the Universe is far too complex to have happened from nothing, so there must be some entity that created it. The question then becomes where did this entity come from. This process leads to an endless iteratio…

So why can’t liberals stand Trump?

    I had a son with cerebral palsy. Mentally, he was fine. Physically, no, he was in a wheelchair, he couldn’t feed himself, get himself a drink, sit up unsupported, and perhaps most important for this post, his speech was slow and often difficult to understand because of the motor …

The Falklands and penguins

The liberal media Christmas outrage is hilarious!

I'm so confused when it comes to the media and the liberal message.  Take for instance the outrage over the color of the Christmas trees in the White House.  They couldn't just say they were appalled at the color red, but they were appalled at the color "BLOOD" red.  Where was the blo…

The American Lie

Americans are sold on the idea of the "American Dream" almost from the time that they can talk.  You are led to believe that if you stay in school, get good grades, stay out of trouble and achieve some kind of post secondary degree the good life is there for the taking.   The bar for the A…

A new poll, commissioned by Club for Growth, found support for the penny plan runs wide as 76 percent of Republicans, 68 percent of Independents, and 63 percent of Democrats surveyed said they back it.
