I haven’t posted much on the presidential campaign, or even followed it as closely as I’ve followed others, because I’ve been busy. And if the reader says, “But the stakes are too important to not follow it extremely closely!” the reader will be making my point. One of the main ideas behind the republican system […]

On the face of it, liberal arguments for gun control are utterly irrational, with no redeeming value whatsoever, except, perhaps, the good intentions that we charitably allow are genuine. The internal inconsistencies of the arguments, and the complete detachment from reality that they represent, leave one baffled. The position can be understood, however, if you […]

Not many atheists were killed and tortured in the Spanish Inquisition. Loads of heretics were, however. Gays themselves will someday be made to suffer, by gays, by precedent that they helped establish.

Why should the vast majority of the population, which is innocent, be made to pay for the crimes of the few, by removing everyone’s freedoms and liberties just so you can feel better?

Your first inclination when I refer to ‘the drone wars’ is probably to the unmanned (but sometimes armed) aerial vehicles that are clogging air spaces and the public imagination, but in fact this is the title of a new series that I will be working on inspired slightly from the Star Wars episode, The Clone […]

Let us all pray that our next resident of the White House is made of sterner stuff and actually likes the people he’s been elected to govern.

I have noticed an increase in massive marches and demonstrations in the United States over the last ten years. Some see this as a healthy by-product of democracy. I think it is the opposite. I think it is an indicator that democracy is in some stage of collapse. Certainly, any legitimate democracy should grant a free right to assemble, but that the people feel they have to assemble in the first place in order for anything to get done means that there is the stench of something very rotten in Denmark. It isn’t easy to put one’s finger on what it is–but that’s precisely part of the problem. If you want to get a feel for how the Republic is really doing these days, don’t look to that meaningless ‘State of the Union’ speech given by the president each year. Look to the streets and see how many, and how often, the people are coursing through them.

While this has been going on for years, the recent spate of over-the-top reactions to ‘guns’ in the schools is beginning to illustrate the consequences of ‘political correctness’ that people have also been warning about for years. In a word, we are seeing the emergence of a soft tyranny, a stripping away of liberties, a […]

Anyone paying attention at all knows that there has been a huge run on guns and ammo in America thanks to the efforts of the number one gun salesman in America–Barack Obama. You would be mistaken if you thought that this ‘run’ was inspired only out of concern for stricter gun laws. Many people have […]

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…”

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.

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 […]
