Equivocating the Syrian Refugee Issue…

18 November 2015

Since equivocation is the current trend in ‘discussing’ the Syrian refugee issue, let me ask y’all a question: How many of you locked your doors last night? If you did, are you really showing compassion to the homeless outside your walls, or even to those who have less than you, and wish to avail themselves […]

Veterans Day: Don’t Thank Me…

10 November 2015

Veterans Day…I’m a little unsettled by it. I understand the sentiment. As a veteran, I appreciate it. I do.  I really do. But I’m not totally comfortable with it.

So, with a presidential election coming up in 1.5 years, politicos of every persuasion (except, apparently, those who represent individual freedom) have decided to seize the Big Concern of the Day™ and twist the current vaccination hysteria into a political talking point.
