Muslims Are Warriors

A Muslim woman shows her affection for a fighter.   Jihad is the worst thing about Islam. Jihad is the best thing about Islam. This article will offend Westerners across the board from left to right.   As early as I can remember I had Muslim friends. As a child there was no time to reflect what makes Muslims Muslims, what characteristics I liked and which ones I didn’t like. Naturally, it took me a while to even notice that some of my childhood friends were Muslims.   The media does not openly discuss cultural differences. Many people in the Western World don’t have much exposure to Islam. So I can only reflect my own very subjective, personal experience. It taught me some of the things that Muslims do better than Westerners: generosity, friendliness, charm, humor, (some of their) family values, loyalty, cheekin…

The History of Western Civilization in a paragraph

This post is inspired by a conversation I enjoyed with the OG man ( we mix it up from time to time). What is presented here is not exactly how it was worded in that thread, but the crux of it is unchanged. Are you ready? Here it is:   Once upon a time a group of people got together and dec…

On Science and Nonscience

Today, I’m going to write about science. This won’t be a technical paper. It won’t be full of numbers or equations. Instead, I’m going to look at science from the generalist point of view. I’m going to ask questions like: What is science? How useful is it to the making …

Domination and Control

I’ve been reading Titan, the biography of John D. Rockefeller, Sr, authored by Ron Chernow.  Rockefeller was the creator of Standard Oil and built an empire of oil magnates using cut-throat tactics on his competition.  Chernow claims that one of Rockefeller’s earliest ambitions…

Curtailing Compensation of Corrupt Civil Servants

The idea that the federal government has restrictions is becoming nothing more than a wish.  In Thomas Jefferson’s mind, the federal government’s responsibility was to deliver the mail, defend the shores, and settle disputes over things like water rights on rivers that flow through …

The witch hunt…

Presidential Pottymouths

We've all heard the rhetoric, the speeches, the pledges, the promises, and everything else that flows like a broken sewer line from a typical politician's scummy and septic mouth. We all know they're somewhere between pond scum and slime molds the size of entire counties, but what about their privat…

The Universe Came From Nothing!! Or Did It?

  I find it fascinating to begin to engage with the fundamental mysteries of the universe - such as how something came from nothing.   There are three basic possibilities:   a. All matter and energy came from nothing in the Big Bang - creating a universe of matter and antimatter in an…

Stay Classy in 2018

For those young and old, many times the end of the year can be a time of reflection. My advice for the younger, or older, if you wish, is to, at the end of each year, just write down your thoughts and maybe some events of your life that year. Perhaps you lost a loved one. Maybe you gained something …

The Deranged Liberal Psychic State

Liberalism is a mental affliction that is manifested in large groups and stirred, as a stew, by political happenings. The far left dictates the future, the conduct,  levels in political polls and comments, in advance, for the toadies and supplicants to solemnly chant and follow. The expectation…

Working for Madoff

We all know about Bernie Madoff.  The man that exemplified greed admitting a Ponzi Scheme of $65 billion back in December 2008, when the rest of world financial markets were also in turmoil.  Recently I read a book about what life was like for those working for his firm, Bernard L. Ma…

Unit Based Curriculum

I loved learning as a child! From Grade 2 to Grade 12, I was always at the top of my class.  I would relish the opportunity to read the textbooks from students a year or two older than me. So when I reached those grades, I already had a pretty good handle on that material before we even started…

A Sad Case of Stockholm Syndrome

The grizzled detective pondered the crime scene laid out before his eyes. He pushed back the brim of his hat, bent down, and reached out to touch the cooling body of one of the victims. He rolled the body over, and it was apparent that the victim had fallen upon his own sword. Same posture as all o…

When Your Car Is Smarter Than You

I totally loved my last car, so it’s ironic that it got totaled, which I didn’t love.   Normally I’m not one of those who falls madly in love with automobiles. They’re just something to get me from one place to another until they don’t anymore, which with my track …
