A story as old as time

Trans-gendered. Trans-abled. Trans-species. Trans-identity. It is hard to spend more than five minutes reading the daily news without being bombarded by stories about those who tell us of "transitioning" — stories of what has come to be called the "trans-community." Published April 21, 2019

The Party of No

Another week in the news, and it is now irrefutable. The Democratic Party has officially lost its mind. The "progressive" left is truly mad. Published March 3, 2019

No longer the champion of the average man

If you had any doubt, you can clearly set it aside. It's now set in stone. The Democratic Party has officially become the anti-Constitution, anti-child, anti-capitalism, anti-Semitic, anti-black, anti-Hispanic, anti-Asian, anti-woman and anti-Christian party of American politics.

Happy holy-days

It has been said over and over again: Words mean something. They have definition and definition matters. As Aristotle chided, "How many a dispute could have been deflated into a single paragraph if the disputants had dared to define their terms." If we don't understand our words, their meaning can be manipulated and we often end up arguing for things that may be the exact opposite of our words' original intent. Published December 23, 2018
