That Guy

That kid you grew up with. That guy. You’ve known him since you can remember. His kid brother, too. K-12. Little League. First guy to get a motorcycle. Hung with the rowdy crowd but unfailingly polite to others. Guy you wanted on your side in a fight… and you never doubted he’d be there.

Great athlete. The kid every other kid in the neighborhood looked up to. Blue collar. Dad, Navy WW2. Mom, Kentucky born & raised. Both gone now.

Off to Vail after High School to build houses all summer & ski all winter. Tired of using a front-end […]

Crossroads. The Near and Far Enemies – and Our Future

The law and the morality of a society are what the citizens/subjects are willing to put up with. It’s might makes right, regardless of what one may think or believe.

The might of Christianity and of Western Civilization has made our – unique – view of morality, human rights, etc., the dominant one, and therefore “right,” but it is foolish think this would have been the case had Christianity and the West not become the mightiest of civilizations.

It is equally foolish to think our rights exist for any reason other than our willingness to destroy any enemy attacking them. […]

Memorial Day 2017

Two of my three kids were born in the mid-1990s. America – the country that defeated the two most modern and powerful military forces in history, across the entire planet, on land, sea and air, in 3-1/2 years – has been in ground combat with illiterate, unorganized, untrained, ill-equipped savages for nearly their entire lives. They have no recollection of an America not at war.

This is shameful.

My dad was born in 1912, raised a Quaker, and fought in the Pacific Theater of WW2. Why? He was an American. My mom was born in 1930, orphaned at 5, raised […]

Time to Treat Islam as an Invasive Species

In speaking of the Dawn of Man it is intriguing that the Left demands Darwin and the Right, Creationism, yet today reverse their roles. The Right wants to kill the invasive species attacking our niche of Liberty and Law; and the Left rejects defending this niche, demanding a form of Creationism: this is the way our world was created; quit trying to change the natural order – which is a slide to totalitarianism, with islam the current invasive species destroying this niche that evolved over thousands of years.
 
When an invasive species appears – the occupier of the niche being

Immutable characteristics vs merit

Constantly lecturing Americans in race & gender, Democrats fail to grasp that among those who actually work for a living it is merit alone that determines our preferences. Eschewing personal responsibility in all aspects of their lives – the performance of unionized teachers, pregnancy, their son or daughter not performing to the standard of MVP so demanding participation trophies – the Left is incapable of grasping that the rest of us choose friends, companies, mentors on merit alone.

The Left does value performance in some spheres. Acting. Singing. Athletics. Entertainment. But only when they themselves aren’t participating. You will see […]
