The proliferation of drive-thru burger joints proves that Americans don’t give a damn about the global warming crisis.

Like many Boomers, I grew up watching Popeye the Sailor cartoons. One of the endearing characters was Popeye’s friend J. Wellington Wimpy, who presented himself as an elite intellectual, but really he was a lazy gluttonous tramp. Wimpy’s schtick was to scam the other characters into buying him his favorite…

Tuesday, December 7 marked the 80th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and most Americans still don’t know why it happened

The USS Arizona Memorial, at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, commemorates the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.


World War II and its immediate aftermath marked a low point in the moral self-perception of many Westerners. Once the carnage of WWII was fully realized, many suffered a profound disenchantment with the West, which is a sentiment that persists for many to this day.

The slaughter of World War…


They only get credit for those contributions to American culture that didn’t also depend on non Anglo-Saxon cultures

The Anglo-Saxon Superiority (ASS) movement has a long sordid history in the United States, and it is high time we rid ourselves of its foul stench.

If advocates of ASS want to force us to recognize their unique contributions to American culture, then it stands to reason that we eliminate…

Answer: It’s a purge, and you don’t have to take my word for it because Republicans are telling us so

As I watched various news outlets cover the ousting of Liz Cheney from her leadership role in the Republican Party, there appeared a reluctance to call it what it was. Many Democrats believe the Republican Party is engaged in “infighting” that will work to the Democrat’s advantage in the future…

For shame, Noel, as now you are out and out lying, which is unbecoming a religious calling toward truth and revelation.

First, the entire New Testament was written in Greek and not Aramaic.

Second, you are pulling out of your you know what the claim that Joseph in Matthew is Mary's father and not Joseph the husband as it clearly states. This is to make the narrative work for you when it clearly doesn't work.

Third, if Matthew gets the story wrong, then the Bible is not a divine source of knowledge and it is all questionable.

Your faith has blinded you from even the possibility of striving for the truth, which is sad.

Got other fish to fry so moving on.


The “spiritual but not religious” trend is largely made up of the ignorant, the deceitful, and the delusional. In contrast, please take me to church.

An article in the Atlantic “What It Means To Be Spiritual But Not Religious” (1/11/2018) shared a brief analysis of the popular American trend toward spiritualism and away from organized religions and churches. According to the article, a whopping 64 million of us, one in five, currently self identify as…

Faithful Christians should follow what Jesus taught by word and deed rather than the practices of the Roman Empire that prosecuted and crucified him. Not honoring the Sabbath on Saturday is against the teachings of Christ and stems from Roman Paganism and anti-Semitism.

In this argument, I address a contradiction between the beliefs of contemporary Christians in contrast with what Jesus is reported to have communicated according to the New Testament of the Bible (KJV). Jesus debated with the Jewish leaders of his day over what he believed were hypocrisies, and here I…
