Here are some pictures and videos and some brief reflections on my participation the 2013 March for Life.

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 […]

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 […]

Since then, the original source and I have done some more research and it seems highly unlikely that this picture is of a recent church burning. Allegedly, the image is of people burned in a gas explosion. I found this page that linked to this page; you will observe that the latter page no longer works. I am sure some more sleuthing would allow me to get that missing information, but the fact that the former page is from a full year before the report I posted, and has the same image, strongly suggests that the two do not go together.

The best part of rocks is the fact that it rhymes with socks. I say that because as a child I read a book that had a fox with a problem with rocks in his socks, and it was a favorite story of mine, and the story would have been impossible if rocks sounded like something else, like petra. At any rate, this proves that rocks can also be useful in literature–and satire.

UPDATE: I have determined that this image DOES NOT go with this event, so I think it unlikely that the event itself did not happen. I await further clarifications. In the meantime, the post remains the same as it was for posterity’s sake. Details. What happened in Sandy Hook was a horror upon horror, but […]

In the November 2012 issue of Nature professor Jaime S. King has an article titled “Politics and fetal diagnostics collide.” The summary: “Without better regulation, non-invasive prenatal genetic tests will be targeted by US anti-abortion lobbyists.” For the record, I have notified Professor King of this post. UPDATE: She has replied and says she will […]

For every successful mass slaughter there are dozens of attempts. So it is, so it will always be.
But understanding why this is the case is the critical issue. The real problem is spiritual. But many people do not believe we are spiritual, because they do not believe in spirits. And if they do not believe in spirits, they will not believe that we are spirits in rebellion. But that is what we are. Everyone of us.

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.

As usual, the long knives are out for guns again. Whenever things like this happen, I am reminded of a leisurely walk through Napoleon’s wife’s garden in Strasbourg, France, I once made at midnight with some fine fellows, one of them a young Frenchman. I was impressed by the high amount of activity in the […]

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.
