Speech is free. It’s transmission isn’t.

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 20:00:30 +0000

If one lives in the USA, then one has the right to speak one’s mind without the government punishing one for doing so. That right is enshrined in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. What isn’t enshrined in the First Amendment is a right to have someone else transmit one’s speech to the general public. This particular fact seems to be lost to certain people, as a headline from The Hill website reveals. That story by The Hill begins by saying, “Twitter’s verification program put the company at the center of another political headache this week, with the social(image)

Gun-Grabbin Gabby Giffords Wants to Take Away Your… Muskets?

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:31:59 +0000

Former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords just gave us more proof that the left’s real goal with “gun control” is nothing short of a total elimination of the Second Amendment and a ban on all guns. One of the first things that liberals insist when discussing “common sense gun control” is that they only want to make America safe, not put an end to the Second Amendment. They piously proclaim themselves to be stewards of the Constitution and insist that they don’t want to take your guns away from you. Then there is their other claim, which the Second Amendment was written(image)

More Foolishness From Roy Moore’s Camp

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 20:00:23 +0000

“He’s a lawyer, too?” “Ma’am, I was already a blood-sucking parasite. All I needed was a briefcase.” Those are lines from the ending of The Bee Movie. The question is asked by a cow. The answer is given by a mosquito. The jest is this: the only difference between a mosquito and a lawyer is that the latter carries a briefcase. I consider that jest to be an insult . . . to mosquitoes. I certainly don’t believe that mosquito would be as foolish as the lawyer who is currently representing Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore. From Politico: “Meanwhile, Moore’s(image)

Drumbeat Continues to Drive Moore from Alabama’s Senate Race & OPEN THREAD

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 20:15:10 +0000

From TheHill: Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), who leads the Senate GOP campaign arm, is calling on the Senate to expel embattled Alabama GOP nominee Roy Moore if Moore wins December’s special election. “I believe the individuals speaking out against Roy Moore spoke with courage and truth, proving he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate and he should not run for office,” said Gardner, who is the first GOP senator to publicly raise the specter of expulsion. “If he refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him, because he does not meet the ethical(image)

Liberals Lying Again: ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ is NOT ‘Racist’ in ANY Way

Sat, 11 Nov 2017 03:06:58 +0000

The latest calumny against our country spewed by the historically illiterate left that our national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner,” is “racist.” It is a charge that further proves that liberals are disingenuous, hysterics that only parrot the garbage that they hear from others even as they don’t take any time to research the matter themselves. This time the nonsense is being peddled by the California chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People which has not only passed a “resolution” that the national anthem is “racist,” but has announced that it wants to pursue congressional sponsors(image)

Political Intentions: Do They Matter?

Sat, 04 Nov 2017 19:00:05 +0000

“You gave your girlfriend a tracking device.” “That wasn’t the intent.” Those are two lines of dialogue in the movie Star Trek Beyond. The first line is spoken by McCoy, who is commenting on a gift that Spock had given to Uhura – a gift that was functioning as a tracking device during a critical time. Spock’s reply “That wasn’t the intent” was a defensive reply on his part. Spock didn’t like the idea of the intent of the gift being twisted. Spock isn’t alone in disliking someone twisting his intentions. In the USA, it is common for political disputes(image)

Media Ignorance About Climate History

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 19:00:38 +0000

Once again, climate change is in the national news, with CBS News publishing a story titled Report sees “momentum” against climate change and its impact on health. While media members talk about current climate change, they tend not to talk about previous eras of climate change. It is as if they don’t know about the previous eras. Regarding those previous eras, climate scientist Kirk A. Maasch describes them in a 1997 article that he wrote for the PBS program NOVA. The introduction to that article states, “During the past billion years, the Earth’s climate has fluctuated between warm periods —(image)
