The Ballot and Democracy Under Attack

The following was written by a friend, critical thinker, and clear communicator. I think John Antonetti's words are important for us to hear right now. Someone recently said that whatever we're doing right now is what we'll one day tell our kids we were doing when democracy was being destroyed. It's time to speak up!... Continue Reading →

Jerry Falwell Jr. shows The Liberty Way

I guess young Jerry is the president of Liberty University by virtue of having been raised in the home of Jerry Fallwell, the evangelical preacher. Strange way to get a gig! There must be some rowdy students at Jerry Falwell Junior's Liberty University. I don't know how I got through college without this extensive list of... Continue Reading →

A willingness to confess? Probably not.

I suspected subtle racism in my church when I was young. I was raised in an evangelical church that was a friendly place.  I used to ask questions of adults who worked with our youth department and received only silent, pained looks. Examples: "Why doesn't Mr. Tom (the black custodian) come to worship services?" "Why... Continue Reading →

“Priority-Access?” Thanks, but no.

I received the following from the campaign for Donald Trump. My thoughts about receiving this... That the Trump campaign continues to describe me as a "top supporter" is odd to me. This stems from my clicking "yes" to take one of his surveys, but it wouldn't send without a donation, so I thought that was... Continue Reading →

Why is This So Hard?

Sometimes, issues are complex and it's easy to understand why there might be  a hesitance to be confrontational. Other times, things are pretty simple. Offer rewards for another country to kill United States soldiers, and it's time be confront directly. Some of this stuff just isn't that complicated unless you're beholding to the one who...

When People Show You Who They Are

Sometimes you just have to take people at their word and believe they're showing you who they are. On June 27, 2020, a man wore this shirt at an emotional gathering in Union County, Arkansas, where some citizens were organizing to "save a Confederate Statue and preserve their heritage." This photo is from a screenshot... Continue Reading →

Embarrassing to see grown men groveling

My response: Respectfully disagree. The US flag is a symbol and can take care of itself without a law that conflicts with the freedoms it stands for. Put your time and effort somewhere else. I could have continued that it was beneath Representative Womack to be President Trump's water carrier. It's also embarrassing to see... Continue Reading →

Conspiracy Theories By the Dozen

I’ve been on the planet a few years now and have seen lots of conspiracy theories come and go. Very few have proven true. I did some searching and found six that turned out to have some validity according to MentalFloss.com and author Austin Thompson. Some talk radio hosts would have us believe everything is...

If I say something stupid…

These are the three elements of President Trump's rationalization following comments that the injecting bleach and UV light into the human body might be a way of eliminating COVID-19. He claimed the first one (sarcasm). His press secretary claimed the second (context). Dr. Brix claimed the third (unprepared). Here is his claim that he "was... Continue Reading →
