On Wendy Davis

The Wendy Davis filibuster in Texas is drawing attention to the abortion topic again.  Personally, I am rather apathetic to the base topic of abortion, i.e. the question of when life technically begins.  My sole goal with abortion is to make sure that it is never relevant to my life, in other words, don’t have […]

A Civil Rights Anniversary

Forty-eight years ago today, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was working its way through the U.S. Senate.  It faced fierce opposition from the segregationist wing of one of the major political parties.  Which one?  Well, if you believe the propaganda that comes from media outlets like MSNBC, you would probably guess wrong. Going back […]

Paul Ryan’s Medicare “Cuts” And Washington Math

Now that Paul Ryan is the VP pick for Romney, the Democrats are revving up the demagoguery machine on the “Draconian” Medicare “cuts” from Paul Ryan’s 2011 budget proposal.  However, to come to this conclusion, a unique form of Washington math called “baseline budgeting” is required.  For the uninitiated, let’s explain how this works… When […]

Gay Marriage, Geometry And Cheeseburgers

The thing that drives me nuts the most about the same-sex marriage debate is the fact that so many of its proponents insist on equating “opposed to same-sex marriage” with “homophobic” or “anti-homosexual”.  These are radically different concepts.  Islamic leaders who think homosexuals should be executed?  Those are anti-homosexual views.  However, calling someone a “homophobe” […]

Today’s Daily Wisdom (Doctor Heal Thyself)

In today’s political discourse, the word “racist” (when used by a liberal) means, “I have no intellectual response to your argument, so I am going to call you a name instead.”  While we rank-and-file Righties just blow it off now, it seems that the Republican establishment still cowers in fear of being called “racist”, but […]
