Life Unworthy of Life by Derek Elkins

 Derek Elkins’ Life Unworthy of Life came before my eyes, from his perspective, at the most opportune time. I was immersed in studying the philosophies and ideologies that had led to the Holocaust, and the T4 Project (which the book is about) was explicit foreshadowing of that later horror. I was instantly drawn into the manuscript. …

I’ve changed my mind: Keep your religious views about abortion out of politics!

Or… I’ll keep mine out, if you’ll keep yours… or something like that… keep reading… In our country, there is a general feeling that only positions backed by actual fact should drive public policy. ‘Religion’ is perceived to be the realm of personal opinion. Even Christians tend to accept the view that people are allowed …

Your Beliefs are a Threat to the State Itself

Christianity has always been considered a threat to governments, because it maintains that individuals answer first and foremost to God–and by ‘individuals’ we also mean those running the governments. But when religion gets in the way of the ‘public order as established by law’ then the common good must take precedence. Right?

A Tale of Two Old People Who No Longer Contribute to Society

With ‘Quality Adjusted Life Years’ and other such criteria for determining when to spend money on old people right around the corner (if not already here… *ahem* IPAB *ahem*), I found it ironic to see these two news items running at the same time today: When the 87-year-old resident of Glenwood Gardens collapsed at the …

Progressives Will be the Death of the Republic, Democracy, and Freedom

This can’t end well. And when it does end in tyranny–and I’m pretty sure it will, although I don’t know when exactly–it will be because of dolts like those I just featured in this blog post who created the conditions and actually carried out the acts that facilitated it. And when it happens, they’ll look around, surprised, “How did this happen? This isn’t what I had in mind! I had good intentions! This foul result has nothing to do with anything that I did… put me in power again and I’ll do it right this time…”

The Conquest of America by the Culture of Death and My Efforts to Fight Back

About a year ago, I was sitting across from a fellow who was asking me about my life with my daughter, diagnosed with spina bifida, and our decision not to abort her.  He respected our ‘choice’, although did express concern about her impending ‘life of suffering.’  We talked about that for a bit, as I …

Women in Combat, Men in Society

Allowing women in combat seems to me like it could be a pyrrhic victory. In seeking to elevate women to the status of men, it threatens to deprive both men and women of unique aspects of their humanity. In seeking to elevate women, in this case I have the strong suspicion it will actually lower them, and with them, men.

23 Sure Fire Ways to End Gun Violence in America

I have come out several times on this blog on the issue of guns that has made some people believe that I have no solutions to offer. To show that I am a reasonable fellow, and in honor of Obama’s recent list of ‘orders’ that are aimed towards curbing gun violence, I would like to suggest my own ideas. Some of them actually are on his list, so that proves I’m willing to consider all sides of this issue.

Today’s Gun Control Story: Law Abiding Citizen

Some folks wonder what keeps me so busy… here’s one thing.  I’m part of a community of authors producing short stories on a regular basis.  These stories are often inspired by things I’ve been thinking about. Today, completely coincidentally–honest!–I have released a short story called Law Abiding Citizen that ties in a bit with Obama’s …
