Introduction and Index

Wreck of the Sea Venture 1609 Samuel Jordan was evidently the first Jordan to settle in English America.

What About Roe?

The American public recently became aware that the United States Supreme Court is likely to reverse their long-standing Roe v Wade decision. My thoughts are as follows: The Constitution says nothing about abortion.  The decision to reverse is proper. According to the 10th amendment, the matter will revert to the states. The reversal of Roe […]

Insanity

I fear that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have fallen off the plateau of rationality and are sliding into the pit of insanity.  In their reaction to news that the Supreme Court might overturn Roe v Wade, they introduced legislation in the House and Senate to codify Roe.  Actually, they proposed to go far beyond […]

Balderdash!

Balderdash is a term applied to senseless, stupid, or exaggerated talk or writing.  Another word for it is “nonsense.” I recently read a post by a liberal blogger that contained the following assertions. “The Republican record is catastrophically bad. First came the Trump presidency with its endless disasters crowned by Trump’s 30,573 lies during his […]

Say It Isn’t So!

The following information about recent legislation in the state of Oregon was derived from a post by Tony Perkins. President of the Family Research Council. The Oregon State Legislature recently passed, and Governor Kate Brown signed, the Menstrual Dignity Act.  Thanks to this legislation, new tampon dispensers will be placed in school bathrooms throughout the […]

Bullish on Mules

Last evening I went to see Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary on the 2020 election, 2,000 Mules..  Quite honestly, I was not expecting much.  Instead, I was truly amazed at the professionalism of the production and the solidity of its evidence that the 2020 election was stolen by the Democrats. Please, I urge you, see this film […]

Rebirth

A few years ago, a student of history wrote the following: “The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from thebeginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; >From spiritual faith to great courage; >From courage to liberty; […]

A Thousand Percent

Percent means one hundred.  If someone gives one-hundred percent of his income to a charity it means that he gives his total income.  One-hundred percent is the zenith.  One cannot give more than that in treasure, effort, or anything else that can be measured over a fixed period of time, most often a year. Of […]
