I’m pulling thoughts together on a pro-life presentation I’ll be giving next week and have settled on ‘suffering’ as my topic, as it is an underlying rationale to much that we call the ‘culture of death,’ but is not usually targeted directly. By the time this little essay is done, you’ll see how ‘suffering’ and …
Listening to the media spin more silliness a few months ago, I vented to then President-elect Donald Trump in a Tweet: @realDonaldTrump The media has no integrity, maybe the ‘protective press pool’ should B made of average Americans, bloggers.

Secession is the last non-violent option on the table. If we grant a ‘right to assembly’ we should similarly grant a ‘right to secede.’ Splintered regions certainly have some disadvantages, but it is far better that the people in those regions weigh the advantages and disadvantages for themselves and voluntarily choose whether or not they will bear the cost and risk of remaining separate from some other region.
