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…

I saw this article about picking every game correctly in the March Madness bracket state the following: Confident about your NCAA Tournament bracket? You might want to think again. The odds of predicting a perfect bracket are one in 9.2 quintillion (or more precisely: 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808). Best of luck with that. That’s 1 in 263,…

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…”

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.
