SMOD 2016

Posted · 1 Comment

The 2016 presidential race has finally reached the point where I am hoping and praying for SMOD 2016 to win the election. For those of you unfamiliar with SMOD, it’s the Sweet Meteor of Death, a meteor of extinction level power that would spell the end of every life on earth. It’s the candidate we […]

Evangelicals and Donald Trump

Posted · 1 Comment

Evangelicals shouldn’t be voting for Donald Trump. He doesn’t share their values, beliefs or faith. I wrote similar thoughts about Barack Obama when he ran for the presidency.  Obama’s definition of sin, is god-centered only if Obama is god—a question that might cause him to pause for a moment to contemplate. Evangelicals and Donald Trump […]

Bam! You’re stupid!

Proving once again that stupid knows no political party, comes this proposed law from Kentucky. Bystanders who post pictures on social media from the scene of a wreck could face fines under a proposal before the Kentucky General Assembly. A bill assigned to the House Judiciary Committee would prohibit anyone who witnesses “an event that […]

Amateur theologians

The debate over the which Syrian refugees (if any) and how many of them to bring to the United States has brought out a cadre of amateur theologians—many of whom darken the doorway of a house of worship only for weddings and funerals—quick to tell us exactly WWJD when it comes to public policy. The […]

The Syrian Refugees

Posted · 1 Comment

In the wake of last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris that left more than 100 dead, President Obama has decided that it is a good time to reemphasize his plan to bring 200,000 Syrian refugees to America over the next two years. This despite the fact that at least one of the Paris terrorists entered […]

The Hacks at Politifact

Posted · Add Comment

The self-proclaimed fact-checkers at Politifact have really had a banner day today, publishing two flawed fact-checks that betray their partisan leanings. The hacks at Politifact aren’t even trying anymore. First, reporter Emma Hinchliffe and her editor Matt Schwartz go out of their way to find a way to cast doubt on the statement by Texas […]

Fact Checking Frauds

Those who read this site regularly (when I actually do post) will note that my disdain for self-proclaimed media “fact checkers” runs wide and deep—with good reason. Fact Checking Frauds Last week the Washington Post “fact checker” Michelle Ye Hee Lee decided to exercise her liberal hack muscles and look into GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina’s […]

Heinlein’s advice

Posted · Add Comment

Back in the 2008 primary season I wrote a short post featuring sci-fi author Robert Heinlein’s advice on how to vote without needing to do extensive research on a candidate’s political positions, history, etc. If you are part of a society that votes, then do so. There may be no candidates and no measures you […]

Carly on California’s Drought

Posted · Add Comment

Newsbusters highlighted some common sense on the part of GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” this morning. Host Chuck Todd presented Fiorina with the common, accepted liberal wisdom that climate change is contributing to the drought and wildfires that are plaguing her home state of California. As Fiorina noted, droughts […]

Clinton, Rubio and the media

For his first few years at The New York Times, columnist Paul Krugman was my punching bag. His dishonest, hack columns were perfect material for easy rabbit punches that had a devastating effect. My takedowns of his dishonest columns received widespread notice in a variety of national publications and in conservative Washington circles. Then the Times […]
