This is the final paragraph and correction end-note of an article published about Pope Francis by the New York Times. I am not making it up. Easter is the celebration of Jesus’s resurrection from the dead, three days after he was crucified, the premise for the Christian belief in an everlasting life. In urging peace, […]

I love it when good folks work their tails off, push their talents farther than they ever thought they could, and find success. My friend Pete Da Tech Guy was in a bit of a hard spot a while back. Out of work and unable to find a job in his chosen field, he needed […]

Randall Munro, who draws the geeky and very funny xkcd comic strip has recently taken up the mantle of Internet Science Answer Man. As suits his strip, though, he doesn’t’ take on the usual questions like “Why is the sky blue?” or “Will I die if I eat 200 marshamllows? Asking for a friend *burp*”. […]

This strikes me as very, very important. More facts to face: the media is liberal.  The news organizations are liberal.  They protected their candidate.  And it worked.  But that’s part of the hand that we conservatives have been dealt.

I don’t know about you all, but I usually take opinions polls with a dino-killer asteroid-sized grain of salt. I’ve seen people talk to pollsters, on the phone or on the street, and I know darned well that a lot of them aren’t particularly honest to the poor schlubs with the clipboards and scripts. Of […]

This could explain a lot of the problems America is facing today. We have an electorate that not only doesn’t understand America but doesn’t […]
