Don’t believe everything you read

The idea that the Religious Right is all but disbanded has even made it into conservative media lately. Personally, I don’t feel any different than I did a couple of years ago, and I don’t know of anyone who would have been associated with the RR before who has decided that from now on they […]

Patriotism does not mean contempt for traditions

Filed under Politics

Barack Obama is no patriot. Liberals apparently love coming up with new definitions of words. The picture above was taken during the national anthem. This is not presidential behavior. For Democrats to even be considering this man as a potential candidate for the presidency is a disgrace. Not only does he refuse to wear the […]

Apocalypse Now?

 I’m not a big fan of Pat Buchanan. Sometimes his opinions are way out there. He’s got his thinking cap on, though, in his latest column about global warming. I especially liked the following statement: Like the panics of bygone eras, this one has the aspect of yet another re-enactment of the Big Con. The […]

How I got started blogging

Well, the main thing that got me started blogging was that I needed some way to keep people updated on my latest essays and what was going on with my website. I got tired of having to play with html each time, so I decided to do the updates in blog form. I also liked […]

Should evangelicals support Mitt Romney?

I’ve seen several evangelical opinion columnists endorsing Mitt Romney lately. Personally, I don’t care that he’s Mormon. However, the timing of his “conversion” to the conservative cause is just too suspect. If he had made his conversion and run for president several years later after developing a strong social conservative record I’d have no qualms […]

Experiencing problems with gravatars

Filed under Blogging

I was having some problems with gravatars today, so I deleted the cache and tried to refresh it. Now only 3 people’s gravatars are working, including my own. I wonder if the server over at gravatar.com isn’t just overloaded today.

Apologizing for something for which you are not responsible?

Last night the associate pastor (let’s call him Y) at church mentioned that when he was in mission school in Australia (he wanted to become a missionary) there was a Korean and a Filipino attending at the same time. When it came time for him to return to Japan (he’s Japanese) he was asked to […]

Just like being a kid again

Filed under Blogging

I’ve been tagged by Robert of Mulled Vine. This is a first for me, but according to his instructions, I am to reveal seven things about myself that my readers do not already know and then “tag” three others to do the same. 1) I was born in the second poorest county in the entire […]

Are Democrats really that dumb?

Filed under Politics

John Edwards at the MTV/MySpace Presidential Dialogue: “We cannot build enough prisons to solve this problem. And the idea that we can keep incarcerating and keep incarcerating — pretty soon we’re not going to have a young African-American male population in America. They’re all going to be in prison or dead. One of the two.” […]

Can you name the Ten Commandments?

Don’t look. See if you can do it. I was able to name nine of them without looking. Apparently Americans find it easier to name the seven ingredients of a Big Mac hamburger than to name the Ten Commandments.
