Reading the Outlander Series-And Learning! Updated-See Italics Below

For the past few months, I have been reading Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series of novels, about a nurse after World War II, who falls through standing stones in Scotland, and lands 200 years in the past.  Her adventures are totally engrossing, and I have been literally losing sleep, as I hate to close the book, …

What the Mainstream Media Keep from You-The Iran Deal

So, what do you think of the "deal" the Obama Administration has "negotiated" with Iran (the world's greatest sponsor of terrorism)?  The people whose opinions I value most ALL think this will be detrimental to world order, arm more terrorists who shout "Death to America!", start a Middle East nuclear arms race, and spell the …

Celebrate Independence Day

  The Declaration of Independence, along with the US Constitution, is arguably the free world's finest attestation to the values that underpin the world's most influential Republic.  Reflect on it today, and contemplate the consequences if Americans embrace tyranny right here at home.  Think about the phrase, "Consent of the Governed".  Does that still resonate …

(poundsign)LoveWins! Really??

For the past week, homosexuals and their advocates and supporters have been literally dancing in the streets, since five lawyers in black robes "gave" them the "right" to government-sanctioned "marriage".  That ruling, and a couple before it, has taken the issue out of the hands of the People, and in the case of Proposition 8 …
