How is it possible that less than 2% of the population can wield such power? As expected, Mozilla Chief Executive Brendan Eich has stepped down. What did he do that was so evil? Did he murder someone? Did he molest a child? Does he have a Swastika tattooed on his forearm? Get ready for it. …

The latest Fort Hood shooting is maddening. Of course, for those who were murdered by a lone gunman, it’s tragic. Families don’t expect their loved ones to be killed by a fellow-soldier on a military base. I don’t know what the reasoning is about disarming soldiers on military bases like Fort Hood when millions of …

A political tidal wave just hit in Pennsylvania. When’s the last time a write-in candidate won an election? It doesn’t happen very often. But it happened in the Keystone State – for the first time.

Here’s my short answer to lifting the Cuba embargo: Yes! “The United States has had a trade embargo against Cuba for more than 50 years, but according to the latest survey, a majority of Americans favor normalizing relations with the Communist regime.” Maybe at the time an embargo was a good and proper policy. I’ve …

Oregon’s constitution states the following in Section 3 of Article 1 of the Bill of Rights: “Freedom of religious opinion. No law shall in any case whatever control the free exercise, and enjoyment of religious opinions, or interfere with the rights of conscience.” The above sounds ironclad. A person in Oregon can’t be required (forced) …

When the Constitution was written, the federal government was composed of three branches so that no one branch could ever take over and assert tyrannical power.

It’s gotten so bad that falling temperatures are being used as evidence of rising temperatures. Pseudoscience is the new normal. We’ve seen this type of pseudoscience before. In his book …
