Impeccable timing

This past Friday, June 26, I met an elderly gentleman. He wasn’t in the best of health, but he still seemed to have some spirits about him. I spent a few hours with him and, while he didn’t speak much, I still felt I got to know something of his personality. He definitely liked his […]

I’ll do it myself

I will be turning 30 later this year. I’ve lived through three decades, six Presidents thus far (though with the first two I don’t remember much), two parents, a brother, who knows how many pets, and several jobs. When I was younger, I certainly had a feeling or sense of entitlement. Back then, about twenty […]

iPhone 4

Apple’s promotion and now release of the iPhone 4 has been mired by praise and criticisms all-around. Development of the phone was super-secret, which is part of Apple’s nature. Rumors are leaked here and there to keep the rest of the industry guessing, which allows Apple to really blow away the minds of the public […]

Sexual morality and Texas

In typical discussions of morality, two topics tend to come up more than most: sex and abortion. Obviously the two are related — without the former you would not have the latter, but also, and obviously, without the former, you and I would not exist.

The battle with the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has renewed individual resolve for socialist agendas in the United States of America. Cries and chants calling for the nationalization of British Petroleum (NYSE: BP) or at least the seizing of whatever of its assets fall under the jurisdiction of the United States have […]

This could include compromising a condom, removing it mid-coitus, or compromising or destroying the woman’s birth control, among other options. If you’ve seen the show Weeds, you’ll probably remember a scene from the season […]

Disclaimer for the Constitution of the United States?

This is something that has recently been reported on Fox News, and saw a brief cameo on Glenn Beck’s show, and something of which I only just now learned. There is a publisher who is publishing pocket-sized copies of the Constitution of the United States, the Declaration of Independence, and the Articles of Confederation with […]

Criticizing Abby

Abigail "Abby" Sunderland attempted a feat of which most most everyone in the world could only dream. Sailing around the world is no small matter. Sailing into the open ocean period requires you to keep your wits about you as the ocean can be unpredictable. But much of the criticism of her attempts to circle […]

Further commentary on the pledge of allegiance

If you threaten to take the words “under God” out of the pledge of allegiance, you’re a secular, anti-American lunatic. Or so the Christian right in this country would have you believe. For me, I say don’t remove the words “under God”, instead repeal the whole, freakin’ thing. Take the entire pledge out of the […]
