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.
Is it true that women only earn 77 percent for each dollar earned annually by men and 82 percent of each dollar earned weekly?
Is it true that women only earn 77 percent for each dollar earned annually by men and 82 percent of each dollar earned weekly? That’s what you hear over and over and over and over and over again. It showed up in the presidential debate. I saw it in recent comments on an article. It …
Get this on your E-reader using this link and coupon for 100% off: ZC29N I must at the outset admit the debt owed to GK Chesterton, for it was on the third reading of his “Eugenics and Other Evils” that his comments about ‘the anarchy from above’ finally made sense. They made sense because they …
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 …
In Part 5, I concluded that something very significant has happened over the last three decades: ‘politics’ has become all-encompassing. In short: everything has become political. And if everything has become political, and Christians are supposed to butt out, that means that the Christian is being asked (or told) that he can have absolutely no …
In my first post, I showed how the beliefs of the Nazis and the eugenicists are disturbingly similar to viewpoints of some modern liberals. I gave three examples; I could have given three hundred. The Jaffe Memo shows that ‘population control’ is central to the the progressive outlook on the world. It is an aspect …
The last part ended with a question that this part shall now answer. Why? Because ‘religious’ views are just one example of a ‘world view.’ I asked earlier, “Ought not our attitudes and behaviors in political society be driven by our views about the world? If not our own views about the world, then whose …
This morning I posted a lengthy post on the Jaffe Memo, a document provided by a vice-president of Planned Parenthood in 1969. This memo has been making its rounds because it advocates for the encouragement of homosexuality, forced abortions, adding sterilants to the water supply, and so on and so forth. All this, from an …
The Walk to Walden Hill begins with tragedy: the orphaning of the protagonist, Josh Billows. His mother dead, his father jailed, Josh ends up in foster care. As just a young child he is forced to grapple with issues that are known to shipwreck adults, even if he doesn’t understand the real issues that are in play.
Herman Cain is in the category belonging to “I can stomach voting for him” and the subset of that category, “I can even speak a kind word about him and am comfortable advocating for him- and will.”
His 9-9-9 proposal has a simple and important premise: the elimination of the Federal tax code and starting over. Amen, brother. Preach it.
However, the notion of a national sales tax is abhorrent to me. I do not feel reassured by assurances that the 9% tax will not in later years be increased. If we know anything about how the US governments work (and the plural is intentional; I am counting local and state governments as well), a tax will always go up. It never goes down and it never goes away. This is the real world, not fairytown. We know what is going to happen. We know it.
