Pairsing The Truth

Pairsing The Truth

One of my favorite sayings about Truth is: “Truth is simple, and delights in simple statements. It expects to make its way by its own intrinsic force, and is willing to pass for what it is worth.  Error is noisy and declamatory, and hopes to succeed by substituting sound for sense, and by such tones and arts as shall induce men to believe that what is said is true, when it is known by the speaker to be false.” Albert Barnes‘ New Testament Notes Pastor, First Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia...

Georgia On Our Minds

Georgia On Our Minds

As most of you know, I’m a Conservative-Libertarian Christian who happens to live in the current national-focus state of Georgia. I dislike the way the Democratic Party, the Progressive Elite, The FBI/DOJ, and the Main Stream Media (MSM) hounded President Trump from before his 2016 election all the way through his Presidency and finally into these elections. It was despicable behavior, and I hope that we get to the bottom of it through Senate hearings and internal DOJ investigations. We must...

ABLM

ABLM

I truly believe that Black lives matter. The question I’m about to ask is not snarky or a rhetorical gimmick. It is a genuine question which I hope one or more Progressives will answer. To some--even many--people Black lives matter, unless they are about to be aborted. And then they don’t. My question is: How can this be? For the past several months we have been shown repeatedly how Black lives as a group are in worse shape than others in our nation. Black people succumb more often and with a...

Faith Isn’t Deplorable

Faith Isn’t Deplorable

I want to try to answer the question which I think vexes some people who know me or others like me: How can a relatively intelligent, traveled, thoughtful person be a Deplorable, clinging to my guns and my Bible? Or put another way, how can someone with a postgraduate education and nearly fifty years of business experience believe in the power of a relationship with his personal savior, and also be opposed to: Most ideas in the Democratic playbook, Sex outside marriage, Gay marriage, Abortion,...

Please Give Us Real and True

Please Give Us Real and True

At age 72 I hope you don’t mind if I want to focus on what’s real and true, not on what’s false or BS. The BS is that we in the U.S. are suffering through a terrible time of oppression, inequality, dysfunction and major problems. Yes, problems exist in varying degrees, and always will. But read Steven Pinker’s book Enlightenment Now to be reminded that this is a remarkably great age for the world in general, and for the U.S. in particular, with the one exception noted in my earlier post. A...

What Wrestling History Can Teach Us

What Wrestling History Can Teach Us

I’ve just finished Taylor Branch’s book The Clinton Tapes: Wrestling History with The President. Branch, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the King Years Trilogy, finished the book in 2009. It contains 667 pages of intimate details taken from seventy-nine secret, mostly late night interviews in the White House with President Clinton from 1993 to 2000, and after. I wish I’d read it sooner. It’s an incredible labor of love for the sake of accurate history. After each interview, as Taylor...

Three Post Updates

Three Post Updates

Here are three quick updates to earlier posts, with several hyperlinks to excellent resources. Progressives: What Does Abortion Have To Do With Economic Policy? The movie Unplanned is now available on streaming video and on DVD. Whatever your thoughts on the subject, please watch it.     Can Anyone See What China is Really Doing? Only If You Look. A good friend sent a link to an important unclassified paper on China by the U.S. Department of Defense: Assessment On U.S. Defense...

Progressives: What Does Abortion Have To Do With Economic Policy?

Progressives: What Does Abortion Have To Do With Economic Policy?

I don’t get it. If you are a Progressive and want to argue for higher taxes, Medicare for all, student debt forgiveness, wealth redistribution, even socialism, though I probably won’t agree with you, let’s talk. But when you advocate for making it as easy as possible to kill babies in their mothers’ wombs, I don’t have anything to say. You’re just wrong. Period. It feels like someone 150 years ago, even a Supreme Court Justice, arguing that enslaving another human being because of the color of...

Policies Trump in the Midterm Elections

Policies Trump in the Midterm Elections

How should we approach the upcoming mid-term elections? With a focus on today’s 24/7 headlines, or with a longer term perspective?  Are the elections, as President Trump claims, all about him, or larger issues? As a Christian conservative with strong libertarian leanings, what are my guiding principles for voting? And, by the way, I know that there is only one true Savior, and he is not any politician, party or government. The founding document for our nation, the Declaration of Independence,...

Irrational Belief Trumps Reason in an Unlikely Source

Irrational Belief Trumps Reason in an Unlikely Source

Bill Gates calls Steven Pinker’s new book, Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress, “My new favorite book of all time.” Pinker’s work is a 453 page, incredibly well researched tour de force on every aspect of life across the globe since The Enlightenment. And almost every page explores the incomparable progress we humans have made during the last 250 years to beat back death, extend life, multiply productivity, equalize rights, increase leisure, and add to...
