Danger Lurks When We Divide Ourselves.

Learning Activity: Does your "private faith" match your public actions? If not, why not? If you were to identify an area or circumstance in your life where you fall down or could do better in this respect what would that be? What improvements could you begin to make today? How about long term? Predict the impact such positive change would have in your relationship with God, with your spouse, with your family, with your friends and with your colleagues. How would it impact your self-respect and your future goals?

The Public Consequences of So-Called Private Choices

The Public Consequences of So-Called Private Choices

BY STEVE FARRELL Should the decision to partake of illegal drugs become sacrosanct, now and forever? Or to put it another way, are all moral choices, no matter how extreme, beyond the reach of the law because they involve private decisions on moral matters? This is a good question. There are [...]

Liberal BBC Asks, “Is Sport Sexist?” While Promoting Inequality

BY SELWYN DUKE It long ago became clear to me that, despite all the pretense, protesting and politicking, no one who has ever seriously thought about equality actually believes in it.

Attack of the 50-Foot Killer Elite Monster

Who Decides Best Interest of the Child?

Who Decides Best Interest of the Child?

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY Who decides what is in the best interest of a child?

The Syrian Rubics Cube

The Syrian Rubics Cube

BY ALAN CARUBA One has to have some sympathy for those in the CIA or the White House folks charged with telling the President what has been going on in Syria since 2011 when the opposition to Bashar al-Assad’s dictatorship turned into a fighting war. It must have looked and felt like playing [...]

Islam Comes to Moore, Oklahoma

Never hurts to ask

Never hurts to ask

BY T.F. STERN It’s fun to joke around with total strangers waiting in line to pay for groceries or gas.  I’ve been doing it for years, starting with the little Vietnamese lady who ran the Stop & Rob store; might have had a different name but you get the idea. Each time I’d visit [...]

Goodbye Eric Holder

Goodbye Eric Holder

BY ALAN CARUBA In a nation where there is a scarcity of good news, hearing Eric Holder give a farewell speech upon his announcement that he will be leaving as the Attorney General was surely welcome in some circles. I was never a fan of his because he was in my opinion always more of a [...]

The Obamacare Disaster

The Obamacare Disaster

BY ALAN CARUBA By far the worst law passed by Congress in 2010 was the Affordable Care Act (ACA) otherwise known as Obamacare. It was passed without a single Republican vote and as more Americans experience the higher costs and other aspects of it realize how it has negatively affected their [...]

Obama’s Ignorance

Obama’s Ignorance

BY ALAN CARUBA From time to time I hear President Obama described as “an evil genius”, but he is neither. He’s not evil. He’s something much worse. He is a fool who thinks he’s a genius. This is not about his intelligence. No one gets to be President of the United States without [...]

Blathering Eco-Intellectuals

Blathering Eco-Intellectuals

Immigration Chicanery
