The Grandfather of one of 3 teens killed by a homeowner after they broke into his home at night says the homeowners AR-15 gave him an unfair advantage:     According to the Grandfather, the masked boys knife and brass knuckles were not a "FAIR" match for the homeowners AR-15, so I guess he thinks the homeowner should face murder charges for killing them with an excessive amount obviously overwhelming deadly force.   I have another view.  We know this happened at night and the teens were masked and armed with weapons that are typically used in very violent ways, and broke into the home.  I think the homeowner probably did the only thing he could to ensure his own safety since all he may have known is that there were multiple intruders who might have guns.  Even if they didn't have guns,…

Bigotry and Bell Curves

Are porpoises smarter than sharks?    Sure. Given pretty serious biological differences, assuming nothing like a weird outlying mutation or physical brain damage, we can pretty much assume that any given porpoise is smarter than any given shark.    However, when comparing human p…

The Dichotomy

     There is a huge dichotomy in the US population. It has afflicted this nation for over 70 years, once it emerged onto the cultural stage. The birth pangs of the split were heard in the sounds of bebop jazz in the smoky clubs of the big cities after WWII. It was the antithesi…

Confiscation’s Constitutional  Conclusion

A Victory for the People On Wednesday, February 20, 2019 the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that confiscation of property by law enforcement is no longer an option, or, as the law enforcement agencies described it, a “cash cow.” The case was Timbs v. Indiana where Tyson Timbs was caught…

The Beautiful Role of Older Women

  Titus 2:1-15 reveals something beautiful that we can sometimes forget as we go along in our busy lives. As older women, some of us have become accomplished, educated, experienced, etc., and there is much we have to offer others. A barrier is there is a cloud of deception in the air, and not o…

It's 9 O'clock.  Do You Know Where Your Knife is?

I know; it's a silly question, unless you are from the knife-wielding capital of Europe.  The government can solve all of our problems.  The UK has a solution to knife violence; install a GPS.  No.  I am serious.  .     "Mr. Mann's Tweet reads: "Eve…

Rejected and Unwanted in Their Own Church

A Primary Challenge to Trump?

I think a Republican primary challenge to President Trump could be advantageous, both for the political system and for the Republic is general.   Historically, in recent elections, where there has been a vigorous primary challenge to an incumbent president, that president has tended to lose in …

As A Trump Supporter....I Feel Bulied

Hey all, how you doing, how you been? I know that it has been a long time but I'm glad to see some familiar names hanging around. I haven't posted here for quite a while, but hearing that this could all be coming to an end I feel that one last hurrah is necessary, and I've got quite the burr up my b…

Do Black lives really matter?

I believe in judging a person by the “Content of their character, not by the color of their skin.” It matters not to me if you are black, white, purple or a green martian. If you are a good person (or martian) who is nice to me and others, you are OK in my book.   *Trigger warning* …

Easy Rider - The Modern WB Version

July 14th, 2019 will mark the 50th anniversary of the classic counterculture film Easy Rider. A lot has changed in the last 50 years, and from what I see these days, the roles of the anti-heroes and villains in this movie can easily be reversed and inverted to reflect the general stupidity and banal…
