Russian soldiers hated the Latvians in World War II


I have few regrets in life, but one regret is that I did not serve in the military. I graduated from high school in 1973, at a time when the Vietnam War was beginning to wind down and for those my age it was the last year before the lottery was discontinued. My number was […]

In light of a tragedy, the decision not to drink is a good one


By the time you read this article, the news of the death of four people and the injuries of 47 more in Stillwater will be five days old, and while Oklahomans and others around the nation will still be mourning the loss, it is sad but likely true that it will not be long before […]

The Islamic takeover of Europe is coming to America


In a recent editorial in the online version of Architect magazine entitled Freedom of Worship, A growing demand for mosques brings NIMBYism in Europe to a whole new level, the writer brought home more evidence that Europe is being inundated with Islam: “Remember the explosive debate in 2010-2011over the so-called ‘Ground Zero Mosque’?  That was […]

The evidence against global warming is overwhelming


Another book has been published this year that, like Mark Steyn’s recent book, A Disgrace to the Profession – The World’s Scientists In Their Own Words on Michael Mann, His Hockey Stick and Their Damage to Science, lays out not only the scientific evidence that global warming is not man-made, but the opinions of the […]

‘Hockey stick’ theory on global warming is discredited


Mark Steyn’s most recent book, A Disgrace to the Profession” – The World’s Scientists In Their Own Words on Michael Mann, His Hockey Stick and Their Damage to Science, is an expose on the scientist who proposed the idea that earth’s temperatures remained stable for 900 years, then suddenly began warming in the 19th century. […]

Man-made global warming is a political hoax by men


Man-made global warming is an issue that won’t go away, not because it is true, but because it is political. Back in 2009, I wrote several articles on the global warming issue after Architecture magazine produced an article that indicated that nearly half of the architects surveyed were skeptical that global warming was caused by […]

‘Net zero water’ is the next extreme environmental cause


Most of us have heard of the movement to eliminate carbon as a source of energy, but now environmentalists are taking aim at water with a new set of principles: Net Zero Water. According to a Planetizen article, Net Zero Water, means “using only as much water as falls on your site and eliminating all […]

Constitutional rights are being violated all over the nation


Edmund Burke is famous for many quotes, but perhaps his most well known quote is, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Two court cases, both appearing on the Law of the Land website, caught my attention this week. The first one was “Federal District Court in […]

American Exceptionalism makes the United States unique


When I travel on an airline, I like to read, and so I always try to plan ahead to buy some good books to keep my mind occupied and to learn something new.  This time I read a very short book entitled, American Exceptionalism, by Charles Murray. Except for the past decade or two, I […]

Lack of knowledge of the Bible is creating a poor witness


I just read a very disparaging article that appeared on the Huffington Post by columnist and author Jenny Block. Block’s article assigns the blame for Josh Duggar’s sexual behavior on his upbringing by Christian parents who taught him that his “natural, healthy feelings he was having about sexuality were wrong,” that “telling an adolescent that […]
