Reckless Endangerment for the Lord

The SARS-CoV-2 outbreak and resulting COVID-19 disease are wreaking havoc upon the world as I write this, and are obviously extensively covered on a continual basis. I’m not an expert and have nothing of value I can add to the advice and cautions of the actual experts, although on a personal note, I will share […]

So help me God

It was always a foregone conclusion that the impeachment trial of Donald Trump would result in an acquittal. The founders of our nation didn’t even want impeachment in the Constitution in the first place. They assumed that one who reached the highest office would be a person of great integrity and moral character that the […]

Lord, Hear our Prayer

Donald J. Trump was impeached, and always will be, as William J. Clinton was. His presidency will be marred by it, along with his track record of deceit, racism, divisiveness and lawlessness. The impeachment trial itself was fascinating to watch, as was the thorough analysis of the process in real time by historians, former members […]

The Impeachment of Donald J Trump

I haven’t written for quite some time, primarily because the impetus for this blog and the eventual book I self-published, was religion. Specifically, that religions are false. The premise is false, the histories wildly embellished and in many cases completely fabricated, and the gods we invented are figments of our imaginations. At some point, there’s […]

Theocratic Encroachment

Politicians pander to their audience. This isn’t a revelation of any great discovery, and the devout make up a large voting block, so trying to out-Christian each other is a common practice among politicians, especially of the Republican persuasion. The current holder of the hot seat in the Oval Office is astoundingly transparent in his […]

The Dynamic Duo of Trump and Carson on Religion

It defies logic and probability that all of America’s political leaders are people of faith, yet none espouse their lack of faith publicly, particularly those seeking the Republican nomination for the highest office in the land. I always enjoy the early campaigning in the political cycle because we get to see people mount an effort […]

Feeling the Bern

I went to see Senator Bernie Sanders last night at the North Charleston Coliseum. I haven’t ever attended a political rally. In fact, the last overtly active political activity I involved myself in was working for the Ron Paul campaign in 2008. It’s not that I’m not interested in politics, because I truly am. It’s […]

Ginsberg Rocks It

If you haven’t yet read Justice Ginsberg’s dissent to the Hobby Lobby ruling from the Supreme Court, I strongly suggest that you do. It is fascinating, educational and a terrific social commentary all in one. This ruling strikes me as a particularly easy one to dissent from, which makes the majority opinion all the more […]

The United States Is Not, And Never Was A Christian Nation

The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land. It is literally the framework on which our system of government is built. It creates the three branches of government, specifies the duties of each, and provides the individual states and their people the powers that aren’t specified in the Constitution. It’s […]

Conservatives or Radical Extremists?

The relentless march to the right by the Republican Party has allowed candidates like Rick Perry and Rick Santorum to make a semi-serious run for the Party’s nomination for President. Newt Gingrich is certainly running as a far right candidate as well, although his history betrays him as someone not wholly committed to that place […]
