Defunding the Police – Religion and Politics
The world isn’t a perfect place. Though that’s the case, taking radical actions to attempt to “fix” it, probably is not the best solution. Slow, measured, determined action and discussion is most likely what’s called for.
Communism Versus Soclialism – Religion and Politics
I hope this clears up why I don’t tend to distinguish between communism and socialism. I should point out that I generally find it a waste of time to distinguish between either or the two and outright despotism or tyranny. That’s because they all tend to be functionally the same.
What is Socialism? – Religion and Politics
I believe that one of the things that makes it so very hard to “nail down” a definition for Socialism, is that folks—myself included—have a tendency to view various terms through their “personal lens.” Put simply, people allow their experiences and the words of others, to “color” their view of particular words or expressions.

My Own of Course — Whose Ideas Do You Support?
I have to be entirely honest, I have zero idea how much of the time I sound big headed, conceited, whatever you choose to call it. It’s not so much that I don’t care, as that: I’m pretty well convinced that people will assume you’re conceited for nothing more than that you disagree with their […]

Being pretty much a pacifist these days, I really don’t support the idea of military service—even though I spent nine years in the U. S. Air Force. I recognize the right of states to maintain militias, and the intent of the Second Amendment of the U. S. Constitution to support unhindered arming of U. S. […]
About Hillary Clinton
I don’t normally talk about things I don’t consider timeless on this blog. I am going to make an exception, but let somebody else do the talking.
Another Favorite Video -Immigration, World Poverty and Gumballs
This is an excellent video come to explaining why mass immigration to the U.S. (or anywhere else) is not the solution to Poverty (or much of anything else).
Another Favorite Video: Three Things You Probably Did Not Know About Islam
I don’t agree with all of the conclusions drawn herein about OTHER belief sets (and could explain why this is true), but the point is, this is something one ought to look at. I’m more than willing to hear arguments to the contrary with regard to what is being said here (and would even consider removing it I can […]
