Liars Lying

I like the new White House communications director, Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci. It's not just because he favors gun control and is against building a wall on our southern border, positions he now officially renounces. I like him because he is personable and entertaining, but also because he is such an outrageous liar. That is,... Continue Reading →

What Is Religious Bigotry?

Listen up, people. It's not often Chiefy admits he was wrong. A short time ago, I responded to a Facebook post about Bernie Sander's "no" vote on a Trump appointee, Russell Vought. The post claimed that Sanders voted as he did because he is biased against Christians, and I disagreed. I defended Sanders' position. Now,... Continue Reading →

Ark Encounter

If you have been following the adventures of the Ark Encounter, you know that it is a profit-making venture of Answers in Genesis (AIG), organized to build and operate a construction (I can't bring myself to say "reconstruction") of what Noah's ark is supposed to have been like, according to the account in the Old...

The New Era

Returning the U.S. to Democracy and Prosperity This new book claims to offer "remedies to restore democracy, improve economic equality, galvanize community and enable Americans to reclaim their constitutional political power." It's a big undertaking, but Hamdy El-Rayes has credentials. He grew up under the reign of Abdul Nasser in Egypt, and after moving to North America,... Continue Reading →
