- Minor pundit, major pain, conservative community activist, author, Christian and Texan, I believe all we can take with us is our character and that the train is arriving soon. As a conservative activist for seniors, children, people with disabilities and low-income families, my liberal buddies think I should spontaneously combust. Many hope I will do so as soon as possible.

There's an old story about a tyrannical king who ruled over a corner of Ireland many centuries ago. He treated the people of one impoverished village of mud-walled, grass-roofed huts so badly that they decided to dethrone the king - literally! In those… Read full post »

Lately, I'm hearing pro-abortion folk like would-be Texas governor, Wendy Davis, working on changing their images by claiming to be pro-life. They say that they believe in a good life for every child; that each child should have good food, good parents, good housing,… Read full post »

I should not watch "mainstream" news - legions of freshly graduated poli-sci/journalism majors opining on things that they know nothing about as though their opinion was established fact. The steady stream of bottled juvenile Marxism is… Read full post »
Last week I was rumbling around the Internet chasing down stories to see whether they were true or not and I noticed a sudden interesting trend. A lot of bloggers were making comments on stories that blamed the President for problems with the healthcare rollout and the… Read full post »
There are those who believe that the loss of a single soul gives the lie to all the joy of those who are saved. That sounds merciful - in fact, on the surface it makes those who believe it appear even more merciful than God, but they are wrong. C.S. Lewis… Read full post »

The last time I posted anything on Open Salon, I got hammered by people saying that everyone knows there is no such thing as God or an afterlife. Many claim a superior knowledge of science and a much more "honest" view of the universe and everything else than someone… Read full post »
This is NOT a church gathering and they are NOT singing hymns.
Religion is NOT the most destructive force in the world. I get that particular talking point all the time from "progressives" but it's a flying load of flapdoodle (to quote my grandpa). The majority/… Read full post »
Live Science published an article recently about a study of marijuana users that shows that (surprise) that the long-term cannabis users tended to produce less dopamine, a "feel good" chemical in the brain that plays an important role in motivation and reward-driven behavior.
Which explains the th… Read full post »

Modern diplomacy keeps reverting to a fatal tactic that anyone who has ever had a couple of kids in the back seat on a long trip can tell you doesn't work. It goes something like this:

There have been a spate of articles lately questioning whether or not the media should give so much attention to terrorists. Are we not rewarding them for their evil behavior?
