I am my child’s advocate; you aren’t.

I am my child’s advocate.

He cannot speak for himself. She cannot understand the issues. Yet the choices we make today will impact them forever. I know my children. I know the issues. You are not my child’s advocate. I am.

You are quite certain my child should be socialized according to your dictates.

For thousands of years civilization got along just great without your professional opinion.

If I choose to make use of your services, it is as my instrument exerting my authority as my child’s advocate. My family is not the arbitrary tool of the state to achieve the state’s ends. My family uses the state- or doesn’t- as its tool. I dispense with it as I determine.

Turn your own family into a machination of the state. Leave mine alone.

I am my child’s advocate.

The Current Enslavement of America by Taxation

The truth is that it is a very small thing to say that if our hypothetical family wanted a parent to stay home with the kids they could easily do so if so much wasn’t being automatically withdrawn from their paycheck. In reality, if we looked at how much governmental interference was costing the family at every level of its existence… fuel taxes, cell phone taxes, property taxes, sales taxes, etc, etc, etc, we may find that the actual tax burden is beyond stifling.

I said at the beginning that there is a proper place for government and there certainly is a proper time and mechanism for taxation. However, it is important that we understand the actual impact and consequences of government and taxation and alert ourselves to the very real possibility that tyranny, actual outright tyranny, can be foisted upon a society- indeed, is already upon us- with that society’s ‘consent’ and without even their knowledge.

But now you know. Now what are you going to do?

One argument familiar to both evolutionary and anti-evolutionary apologists is that there is over whether or not there is pressure on scientists not to openly explore intelligent design (henceforth, ID), even going as far as firing or dismissing professors and scientists.  Evolutionists like to mock the notion by sneering that Evilutionary conspiracies don’t fly. Now, […]

Dan Barker and Infidel Radio

I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard that Dan Barker over at the Freedom from Religion Foundation was going to be on liberal radio network Air America.  I followed up by finding this article at Foxnews.  The writer goofs by saying that Barker and his wife head up the Freedom OF Religion rather than […]

Response to Dawkins’s Preface

The reason why I have decided to address this book beginning with the preface is because it is here that I think we can see at a glance just how far off Mr. Dawkins is from credibly speaking to God as a ‘delusion’ or even ‘religion’ in general. There are three minor points and one […]

The Amish and Original Sin

I suppose now that a few news cycles have past, most Americans have already forgotten about the school house shooting at an Amish school in Pennsylvania. That’s too bad, because it is specifically this short attention span that continues to shipwreck humans in general and Americans in particular. The Amish Incident, as I shall call […]
