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 […]

Can We Survive?

Alexander Tyler, a history professor at the University of Edinburgh in the late nineteenth century and one time Judge Advocate of Scotland, was a student of classical Greece.  Writing about the fall of the Athenian Republic, […]

Words

It’s interesting to think about words and their origins.  Every year we are adding more words to the English language.  Often they originate in the entertainment world, or sometimes they are derived from new technology.  In addition to new words, we find new uses for some of the old ones. One word that fascinates me […]

Mad!!!

“Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.” At no moment in our nation’s history has that ancient saying seemed more appropriate than today. Last month Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law a measure that forbids instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity to children in grades pre-K through grade 3. The legislation […]

The Doolittle Raid

Today, April 18, 2022, marks the 80th anniversary of one of the bravest exploits in American military history.  On April 18, 1942, eighty American flyers took off in sixteen medium bombers from the deck of the United States aircraft carrier Hornet. All these men were volunteers, and it was an incredibly daring mission.  It was […]

Self-Evident

We hold these truths to be self-evident.” These words appear in the Declaration of Independence as the American colonies attempted to justify separation from their mother country, Great Britain. The writer was appealing to a higher law, a natural law, God’s law. Our nation is built on this law.  Indeed, the men who later framed […]

Witch Hunt

Some commentators refer to the work of the January 6 Committee as a witch hunt, other cheer the committee on. I do agree that the events of January 6, 2020, needed to be investigated.  After all, the attack on the Capitol was a serious assault on constitutional government and the rule of law.  Yet there […]
