You ask me to speak, this time. You ask me to break at least this once the silence I’ve chosen, that I’ve imposed on myself these many years to avoid mingling with chattering insects. And I’m going to. Because I’ve heard that in Italy too there are some who rejoice just as the Palestinians of […]

Thursday evening, February 23, 2017, something happened that I thought I would never see. ACT! for America capitulated to the demands of CAIR and in the process relieved a good friend and patriot as chapter leader of the ACT chapter in San Antonio. The details follow. I must say I am deeply disappointed in the […]

This is a review you will never see posted on the home page for the website of Heartland RV of Elkhart, Indiana. If you go to their page, you will see glowing reviews scrolling along the right hand side of their main page. This is not one of those. This review is intended to be […]

Tomorrow is election day. The masses will begin flocking to polling stations at 7am local time. Many states have reported record numbers voting already.

And it’s a very troubling trend. Social media provides a layer of anonymity somewhat, in that even friends you may know personally (as opposed […]

It was fifteen years ago, almost to the minute as I write this. I was nearly to work, just after 6am California time. I left early, as I did in those days, to beat traffic. My wife called me on my cell to tell me a plane had just crashed into one of the two […]

What has happened to the church? Have Christians lost their first love? Have we collectively become the church of Laodicea that Jesus will vomit out of his mouth?
