    2018-09-15 — Happy 78th anniversary of the Battle of Britain! Listen to Winston Churchill's personal account of the battle.

    Here is a study that blows a gaping hole in the entire LGBTQ narrative. Far from being "inborn" or "discovered," the study shows that so-called "gender dysphoria" among adolescents and young adults is mostly the result of social media and peer pressure. What is appalling is how physicians are instructed not to even remotely suggest this. The adolescents are the medical professionals now. The proverbial inmates are running the asylum. This paper was censored by ultra-politically correct Brown University five days after it was published. So much for academic freedom — sad! Great credit goes to Dr. Littman for her courage to publish this paper in light of the storm of hate and criticism which will now inevitably follow.

    2018-09-09 — So U.S. Senator Ben Sasse would help to throw away a conservative majority in the Senate because there's "just a lot of chaos and a lot of reality-TV circus" in dealing with the White House? So what? For being the smart guy that I thought he was, this is pretty dumb. The party of Lincoln existed long before Donald Trump, and it will exist long after Donald Trump.

    2018-09-06 — Liberals never fail to refer to a decision that they like (e.g. Roe v. Wade) as "settled law," but when was the last time liberals referred to a decision conservatives like (e.g. Heller, Citizens United, etc.) as "settled law?" Kavanaugh is correct. "Settled law" is simply a label that liberals slap on decisions that they don't want overturned, lest it upset their own political agenda. Nothing is truly "settled law" at the Supreme Court because the Court can — and does — overturn its own precedents, the classic example being Plessy v. Ferguson in 1896 which was later overturned by Brown vs. Board of Education in 1954.

    U.S. Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) did a very good 10 minute talk on civics and government for his opening statement. People ought to listen to this before making silly comments about this issue.

    Supreme Court Justice nominations should not be "hardball," they shouldn't be all-out war." Not too many years ago, in a simpler time, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was confirmed 96-3. Senator Sasse wisely notes that the dysfunction in our political system can be seen in the fact that protests of socio-cultural issues (abortion, guns, etc.) often take place on the steps of the Supreme Court building rather than at the Capitol building. This is because, he argues, the Legislative branch has given away too much power to un-elected Executive branch agencies. Why? Because Congress doesn't have the guts to take real stands (i.e. pass laws) on controversial issues. Because Congress won't pass law, the Supreme Court ends up being the battleground for social debate.

    Justice Gorsuch, before he became a Supreme Court justice, wrote that "American liberals have become addicted to the courtroom, relying on judges and lawyers rather than elected leaders and the ballot box, as the primary means of effecting their social agenda...this overweening addiction to the courtroom as the place to debate social policy is bad for the country and bad for the judiciary."

    So this issue runs much deeper than superficial assertions like "that's why a Democratic politician should never play nice with Republicans again" would lead us to believe. The acrimony over Supreme Court Justices is a product of many years of Congressional responsibility-shifting and the consequent de facto assumption of a "first-among-equals" role by the Judiciary over the other two branches of the federal government. Such a role for the Judiciary was never intended by the Founding Fathers.

    2018-09-03 — The return of nature worship. The road that animal/people equality leads directly to the degradation of the freedom and worth of the human being.

    2018-08-27 — Lots of complaining about the ignorance of others, but not a single word of gratitude regarding how truly fortunate she is to have grown up in the USA — sad.

    You're a constant regret to me, Thomas. If you could just see facts flat on, without that horrible moral squint. With a little common sense, you could have made a statesman. —Cardinal Wolsey, to Sir Thomas More, A Man for All Seasons, 1966
