The Russia Investigation and the DNC: Death by a Thousand Cuts

I’ve been trying to get away from talking about the election but it looks like I’m going to have to talk about it one more time. I hadn’t formed an opinion on whether the Russians helped Donald Trump’s campaign until Mueller (Hillary) dragged Bernie into it. The accusation that the Russians helped Bernie is so…

Gratitude

I seem to have implied in an earlier article that the story of Adam and Eve had ulterior motives. This is a big problem, and I don’t want to leave my readers with the wrong impression. Fortunately religion doesn’t work like a math problem or a history lesson where you can take one part of…

The Threat of Alexander Dugin

Is it possible we all fight the same enemy in different guises? I somehow got the impression that we were looking at a choice between a global government or a world divided between Eurasia and the West. Dugin wants nothing less than a planetary ideocracy. He expects the second coming of Hitler as avatar of…

I Really Have to Find Another Line of Work

I regretted writing a previous article soon after publishing it. I left it there because I’ve seen people try to delete things from the Internet only to call more attention to them. The curious thing about being an idiot in public was that the shock of it blinded me to the fact that I might…

Another View of the Conflict in Syria

It turns out the Kurds in Afrin are not the responsibility of the United States. They are the responsibility of Russia. However the United Stated did inflame tensions by announcing the 30,000-strong ‘security force’. According to this video fighting ISIS was the easy part.

Will a Higher Birthrate Lead to Love and Compassion for the World?

There was a time when it made sense for our politicians to argue that a higher birthrate was necessary to prop up an ailing social security system, but that argument is no longer convincing. Our government has shown an interest in eliminating or privatizing the social security program, it has demonstrated that it has every…

Adam and Eve’s Bargain Wedding

Before I go on I want to discuss a statement I made previously in which I said the story of Adam and Eve is used to justify marriage without compensation for women. If you consider the theological implications of the Fall you might see a possible problem with my theory. On the other hand, saying…

Syria’s Safe Zone is Not What They Told You

The people involved in planning and selling the ‘safe zone’ in Syria are the same people who tried to create it during the Obama administration–basically rogue generals and neocons. Except the last time it was Erdogan who wanted to create the safe zone. It is not going to be safe for regular people, but safe…

Is Afrin a Trap?

From the time I heard the news of the attack on the Kurds and then read of Trump’s half-hearted warnings to Turkey I was afraid the Kurds were going to be sacrificed. Now I’m beginning to think Erdogan will be sacrificed as well. When the president of the United States is saying one thing to…
