What’s Going on With Sunsara Taylor

This is to let everyone know about what’s going on with Sunsara Taylor – and the shameful action on the part of the Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago (EHSC) who have now officially rescinded their invitation to her to speak, this coming Sunday Nov. 1st on “Morality Without Gods.”  See below Sunsara’s statement released yesterday – along with […]

Lying, firing, and barring the truth, oh my!

I would like to take this opportunity to nominate a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize for next year. I don’t know the person’s name, but it’s the junior ethics staff member that unwittingly leaked an ethics report to the press (to say nothing of the individual at the Washington Post who sucked the report […]

Pork Barrel Spending in our Schools

As an educator, I am a firm believer in supporting local school districts. As an ex-collegiate athlete, I see the positive benefits that school athletic programs bring to districts, players, and even students who do not participate in sports but have a reason to be excited about their schools. Many of us are also concerned […]

I’ve got nothing to hide, so why should I worry?

You’ve heard this statement many times over the past few years.  As surveillance, tracking, and CCTV use has become almost ubiquitous in several places in the world, many people hold to the belief that they truly do not have anything to hide, so they don’t object to more and more intrusions into what was once […]

The one time of year it’s “OK” to dress like a slut

Halloween has lost that scary, spooky vibe. No longer do I get the chance to go to the Haunted House or partake in the haunted hayrides – there is just no time. Life consists of school, studying, and work with very little of the necessities in life such as sleep (and now I’m blogging). But, […]

The way I live: The beginning

As a college student, I suppose I should have fifteen of my own blog sites, but I don’t.  Trust me, I’m not against blog sites like Facebook, Myspace, and so on.  However, too many of the typical blogs are little more than soap operas – drama queens talking about each other and who they’re currently […]

The Origins of the “Global Warming” Scare

When it comes to corporate media, environmentalists and dissidents are quick to look for hidden agendas, which is valuable for posing critical questions and avoiding lockstep acceptance of establishment memes. However when it comes to media and movements that present themselves as “green” or “progressive” the skepticism seems to evaporate even when those entities are […]

Watch Out for the Falling Coconuts

Good or bad, we have lost Halloween. Yes, we’re still buying candy by the bushels, but from what I hear most people are hoping that few kids will show up at their doors so that they can have the treats to themselves. I used to do the same thing – buy the stuff I liked. […]

Medical Insurance Fat Cats Working to Fleece Regular Citizens

Glenn Ford of the “Black Agenda Report” says that President Obama is waging a phony fight for public relations purposes in the media verse the insurance agencies. Ford says it’s really a sham battle and the issue has in actuality already been decided. The insurance companies gained the biggest prize in 50 years, forcing even […]

Church and State

Yesterday I discussed briefly the concept of “the Separation of Church and State.”  It was over a situation that arose in Fort Oglethorpe, GA, a town about one hundred miles from Atlanta and less than 10 miles from Chattanooga, TN.  The people in Fort Oglethorpe are bringing signs and banners to their high school football games, trying to infuse God and Jesus Christ with their team […]
