The Strange Case of Robert Louis Stevenson and Rev. Dr. Hyde

05/11/2016 Comments (6)

Saint Damien of Molokai in 1889

Robert Louis Stevenson, the famous author of Treasure Island and Jekyll and Hyde, suffered from tuberculosis (who wasn't back in the 19th century?) and believed that journeying to the South Pacific would be good for his health. Stevenson loved to travel and was glad to depart.

He once wrote, “I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.” So off he went and eventually ended up meeting one Rev. Dr. Charles McEwan Hyde.

Now, to be clear, Hyde, a Presbyterian, was no monster like the Hyde that Stevenson had written about years earlier in his famous novel. Dr. Hyde was working on getting smallpox vaccinations for the natives there as well as...READ MORE

Reckless and Ruthless Bullying of North Carolina May Destroy The Country

05/10/2016 Comments (17)

North Carolina and the Obama administration are now at odds in a twisted and bizarre legal battle. The state is being accused of transphobic behavior akin to the old Jim Crow laws while the Obama administration is making an unprecedented power grab and attempting to bully their leftist secularist agenda into reality.

It started last week when the Obama administration sent a letter to the state's governor Pat McCrory demanding that he “not comply with or enforce H.B. 2,” also known as the bathroom law. The federal government is ordering a state not to enforce a state law. Or else. With the federal government there's always an "or else." In this case, Attorney General seems to be saying that...READ MORE

Eleanor Clift Says Planned Parenthood Performs "A Very Small Number of Abortions."

05/03/2016 Comments (17)

Since when is over 300,000 abortions a year a "very small number?" Not just a "small number." A "VERY small number."

Frequent abortion apologist Eleanor Clift reportedly recently said on the McLaughlin Group, "I do have a problem when they try to cut funding to Planned Parenthood which provides a lot of health services and a very small number of abortions."

I know you're shocked. Mostly because you had no idea that the McLaughlin Group was still on the air. Neither did I.

Funny thing is that leftists are always trying to explain that abortion is no big deal at all because it's not the taking of an actual human life or anything but then they try to minimize the number of abortions that...READ MORE

Planned Parenthood's Crazy Reaction to the Fiorina Announcement. Wow.

04/27/2016 Comments (11)

Meet the most loathsome pair of anti-abortion extremists in America. #NotMyCandidate

— Planned Parenthood (@PPact) April 27, 2016

That's how Planned Parenthood's Action Fund reacted to the news that Ted Cruz was reportedly set to name Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential choice should he win the nomination. You know, for an organization that says that abortion is just a teensy weensy part of what they do, they seem to talk about it an awful lot. A few minutes later, Planned Parenthood then retweeted this:

And now, it turns out that the website redirects to a Planned Parenthood donation page. Wow....READ MORE

Why is the US Suicide Rate Skyrocketing?

Bert Kaufmann, “Loneliness” (CC BY 2.0, via Wikimedia Commons)

Something is wrong in our country. Very wrong. I think we all feel it and know it.

My thirteen year old daughter noticed something the other day. We were stopped at a traffic light on the way to school and she looked around at the other drivers and to be honest they all looked pretty miserable. One woman was crying. Another man had his head in his hand. The other was just staring ahead rather hopelessly. Maybe we were just seeing them all at a bad moment (it was morning) but I don't know. We live in a country with a quality of life which is the envy of the world in many ways. So many of us have cars, cable, and food in the refrigerator. And yet a report just came out that suicide rates are...READ MORE

Chuck Todd Calls Planned Parenthood Videos "Made Up." Ted Cruz Takes Him to School

04/18/2016 Comments (19)

Wow. This is an insight into the pro-abortion frame of mind. When faced with clear evidence that Planned Parenthood they deny and dismiss. That's it.

Last year, The Center for Medical Progress released a series of secretly recorded videos that showed Planned Parenthood officials haggling over the price of baby body parts. For the past year, critics of the video have simply dismissed the videos as "highly edited." That's been their mantra. Unfortunately for them, the CMP released unedited footage on their website. But still, pro-aborts and the media (whom I call Planned Parenthood's AV club) simply keep denying and dismissing.

Here you've got Chuck Todd of Meet the Press simply calling the...READ MORE

Hey, Let's Force Bryan Adams to Play Mississippi

04/13/2016 Comments (22)

Hey, how about we force Bryan Adams to play in Mississippi the same way he would have Christian bakers and florists forced to take part in same sex marriages?

Bryan Adams, whom I always thought to be a bit of a Springsteen wannabe, confirmed my theory by mimicking the Boss in a rather pathetic fashion by announcing he would not play a concert in Mississippi due to their freedom of conscience laws. Springsteen believes that adult men should be able to use little girls' bathrooms. Adams feels so strongly that Christians should be forced to take part in same sex marriage that's he willing to not perform. I could think of many reasons Bryan Adams should not perform but I digress.

I'll admit,...READ MORE

CBS Should Have Had a Trigger Warning for NCAA Championships

04/05/2016 Comments (8)

With all this talk of trigger warnings and safe spaces, I worried a lot about my over-sensitive friends on the far left last night which presented a serious quandary for many. In the NCAA championship game you had Villanova University vs. North Carolina University.

Needless to say, there were no good guys for leftists. Villanova University is Catholic. Evil, right? That goes without saying. The Catholic Church and all of its institutions are barbaric institutions of yesteryear on Earth (Holy Gaia!) whose sole goal is to turn the clock back on women. So certainly no sensitive man or woman (or other) can root for a university founded by an organization which follows some fourth century...READ MORE
