The stalwart propaganda rag for Russia, Pravda, has published an article on gun control that makes a good point: The excuse that people will start shooting each other is also plain and silly. So it is our politicians saying that our society is full of incapable adolescents who can never be trusted? Then, please explain […]

The thing that burns me up about debates about gun control is the attitude that we are only kept safe by well-meaning bureaucrats passing good intentioned laws that of course are followed by all the nice citizens. The insinuation is that people who want guns are violent people; the mere fact that they want or have one is proof positive that they are suspect individuals. They are unstable folk that you need to keep your eye on.

Dan Barker’s Freedom from Religion Foundation is immersed in their annual war against all things religious. That is of course how they view it: a war. In this war, they have had quite a few successes, in large part because they realized early on that public sentiment was not on their side. That is, they […]

The loss by McCain and the GOP 2010 midterm victories were a message to the GOP and the 2012 election is a re-statement of that same message: we will vote for genuine conservative candidates and support them materially, but we will no longer support candidates who struggle to distinguish themselves from the ones they are running against. They will not hold their nose and vote for the GOP moderate. They’re just not going to do it. But, as the 2012 House turnout shows, they will still vote for the GOP conservative.

For a populace to swing wildly back and forth every two years is a madness that indicates there our mass of citizenry that is rocked back and forth on the waves of change, without anchor, without direction, without guiding principles grounded in fact and the realities of the universe.

In a DailyMail article we read: ‘Virginia is neck and neck as well,’ [Jim] Messina said. ‘We continue to feel very good about our chances to carry it there..in Northern Virginia Romney’s going to have defend his wanting employers to decide whether you get contraception services for you or your wife or your daughters and […]

The debate revealed nothing about Obama that attentive people have seen in him for the last four years: He is an ’empty suit.’ He is an ’empty chair.’ The debate only revealed something about Romney, but it only uncovered and crystallized anti-Obama sentiment that had been lying quietly beneath the surface for 2-4 years.
Romney in a landslide.

When one person calls another person fat, that is bullying. When the government calls two thirds of America’s citizenry fat, we call that being ‘socially concerned.’ Who elected this government? We the people. If Kenneth Krause is a bully, so is the government, and so are all the people who told the government it was ‘ok’ to involve itself in every area of our lives. We are all bullies now.

The recent turn of events in the Middle East has me thinking that we may be seeing the Obama term complete it’s mimicry of Carter’s presidency. The Iranian hostage crisis fleshed out the numerous ways in which Carter was deficient. It was all part of a package, you see; the floundering economy, the diminished standing […]

The culture of death is rarely honest about its beliefs and values. All the more reason for those of us in the pro-life community to keep our eye on the ball. If we got rid of abortion on demand, but erected the apparatus that the elites are trying to build, I assure you, the only thing that will change is the group of people that falls under their scrutiny. Probably the old, most certainly the disabled. But also targeted: those who smoke, who drink, who eat sugar, or trans fat, or engage in ‘unhealthy lifestyles.’ I would say that tyranny is right around the corner, but that last sentence should give us the real truth: it is inside the door, and sitting at our couches… and trying to make itself at home, at our own invitation.
After-birth abortion: why should the baby live? Or, What is the proper response to killing newborn children because they are a burden to a family… or society?

authors Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva argue that the same arguments that justify abortion of the fetus on demand likewise apply to the newly born. Here is the abstract:
Abortion is largely accepted even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus’ health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, (2) the fact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant and (3) adoption is not always in the best interest of actual people, the authors argue that what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.

Obama is just now completing his speech at the prayer breakfast and he quoted CS Lewis in support of his notions of a Christian in government. Clearly, someone at the White House is doing some research. I for one doubt very much that Obama has ever read Lewis beyond the quote he used. Here is […]

I just posted an essay taking aim at American Catholics who voted in Obama (54%), supported Obamacare, and are now dumbfounded- shocked, I say- that Obama refuses to exempt Catholic organizations from requirements that infringe on their religious liberties. This essay should be read in conjunction with that one, because I refer to a much […]
