The Clintons Lie. So Why Is This News?

The new biography about Hillary Clinton by Carl Bernstein promises to be an unflattering portrait.  There is no surprise in this.  Such have been written in the past.  The difference is in the source.  Carl Bernstein, of Watergate/All the President's Men fame, is no neocon or conservative of any other kind.  So why are the …

Cape Henry and the Triumph of “Plan C”

This weekend we celebrate the 400th anniversary of the landing at Cape Henry, the first enduring landfall of English settlers in the New World.  On 29 April 1607, a group from the Virginia Company landed and, led by their Anglican chaplain Robert Hunt, prayed for the establishment and propagation of the Christian religion in the …

The Children of Hurin: Tolkien’s Christian Roots

We should note, however, that this …

Virginia Tech, The Supreme Court: Counting on the System?

To be honest, I haven't said anything about the Virginia Tech massacre because I wasn't sure what to say.  Best to start brain before engaging mouth (or keyboard.)

What It Takes to Experience Discrimination

Today is the so-called "Day of Silence" put on by the LGBT community to attempt to illustrate their idea of what they go through because they are LGBT.  The idea is to "raise consciousness" (a good Maoist term) about the "plight" of LGBT people. Since this event targets schools, it's fair game to bring up …

Too Much Like the Lizard Queen?

They are strange creatures, these Bolsheviks. They talk of freedom and the reconciliation of the peoples of the world, of peace and unity, and withal they are said to be the most cruel tyrants history has ever known. They are simply exterminating the bourgeoisie, and their arguments are machine guns and the gallows. My talk …
