Being Worthy of Fatherhood

All we can do is point the way, and we should take due care in making certain that the path we point to is well-trod and clear of danger.  Throwing up our hands when kids screw up is not parenting.  Asking questions, explaining consequences, real follow-up in action, being discerning and discriminating with activities and making subtle observations without judgment will go a long way.

Faith in the Wrong Institutions

In a recent TV interview, former president Obama mocked those who would “be afraid of CRT.”  Mocking opposing views can be effective, but greater minds than mine have already firmly established CRT’s Marxist roots.  The shame is that school boards and education in general have been infected with the cancer surrounding this ideology of division between the alleged oppressors and the oppressed.

An Objective Assessment of CNN’s ‘United Shades of America’

At one point the woman-of-many-identities said she was accused by commanders in a war theater of “going native,” a euphemism for thinking of the civilian in-country population, first.  Here Bell said quickly off-screen that “going native” was “racist” for meaning she cares.  Nonsense, Mr. Bell.  When any of us goes native we lose sight of the mission, the goal.

A Tempest in Their Teapot

There are legitimate concerns about the 2020 Election, but the smart money cannot waste time debating the outcome.  It is, and has been since November, a done deal.  The cloudiness of the election, from judicial action in Pennsylvania to inaction by the US Supreme Court and many points in between, is a factor that will rile up people who have already acquiesced to the outcome but still smell garbage.

Chauvin, Waters, Flames

If they don’t get the outcome they want, they will lynch Chauvin figuratively, riot without purpose, and loot when the opportunity presents itself.

That idea of a higher power, above the government, above a king, is the real beginning of our nation. It’s the core reason Marxism hates religion: no person is subordinate in the eyes of God.

The Art of Being Offended

I am offended because I have to qualify everything, every utterance and act, because people who don’t know me will make presumptions about my character if I am not sufficiently woke or apologetic. We used to call that prejudice.

More Thoughts on Race

There are many causes of today’s unrest, but skin color isn’t one of them. There is a causal racism in our criminal justice system, and it’s not the cops.
