Torture

The topic of torture keeps coming up. So of course I have an opinion. I agree with the statement that the United States should not torture. I do not believe waterboarding and the other methods of enhanced interrogation are torture. Waterboarding may be flirting with the line, but I do not believe it crosses it. …

Sometimes bad things happen and the Government cannot protect us. And for the moment I am not blaming that on incompetent or evil people in Government. For the purpose …

We Are In A Holy War

It is politically incorrect to say that but it needs to be said. We are, in fact, in a holy war. Why call it a holy war? Because we did not start it. Radical Islam did. Therefore they get to name it. It is not a war of Islam vs Christianity, but a war of …

What New Ideas?

This is something that has been on my mind for a while now. President Obama likes to talk about how Republicans want to take the country back to old ideas and the Democrats want new ideas. What? While that may make for a great sound bite, it simply isn’t true. It’s not even what I …

The Tea Party

Just what is the Tea Party? There are many ideas out there. Some good, some bad. So I figure I may as well offer a theory. But first, I have to start by saying, definitions of the tea party that include racism are completely WRONG. The Tea Party movement is unlike any other in today’s …

What is Freedom?

Just what is freedom? Does it mean we can do anything we want? Can we do anything we want? Well no not anything we want. We can’t kill each other. OK, that sounds a little corny but really after having laws against hurting each other what’s next? How much freedom do we really have? People …

The second problem with freedom

The second problem with freedom is having the freedom to succeed means we also have the freedom to fail. They go together. You can’t have one without the other. For some reason there is a movement to make sure nobody fails. Every kid gets a blue ribbon. Again it is a good idea in theory. …

The first problem with freedom

The first problem with freedom is there is a lot of responsibility that goes along with it. One of the greatest lines ever said in a movie is from the first Spider-man when uncle Ben tells Peter that “with great power comes great responsibility”. The American experiment was a simple idea. That in order to …
