A Surprising Haven For Gays Fleeing the Regressive Left

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

(Brunette again.) With recent LGBT Pride Day celebrations fading from the headlines, especially since posting my last piece, I’ve found myself thinking about various stories I’ve read over the past year or two, particularly accounts of gay men coming out as conservative: They say — and I have no trouble believing them — that it’s […]

Trump: Love The Man, or Loathe Him? (Or, The Art of The Real Deal)

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

(Brunette again.) The fog of war — largely an information war — will eventually clear. We’ve been in the thick of it for some time now. The long dominant left-leaning media has everyone’s heads spinning with more Russia hysteria, spurious rumors based on anonymous sources, breathless speculations about who’s in or out (or at each […]

Trump: Touchstone, or Rorschach Test?

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

(Brunette here.) I’ll admit, initially I wasn’t a big Trump fan. I didn’t take serious interest in the Donald until after the Wikileaks Podesta emails (and Pizzagate/Pedogate) had broken. I’d never had much reason to think about the man, pay attention to him, take him seriously. But I’d always disliked the Clintons, and after watching […]

Kinsey; Crowley; Sex, Drugs & Rock & Roll; MK Ultra, and . . . Pedogate?

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

(Brunette here.) Are you old enough to remember when Alfred Kinsey‘s 1948 and 1953 reports on human sexuality came out? I’m not, although I do recall as a kid growing up in the ’60s that those reports were still stirring controversy. Never paid much attention until lately, when I stumbled across a Youtube documentary about […]

Pizzagate: Too evil to be true?

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

No one wants Pizzagate to be true. (Brunette here.) When something’s “too good to be true,” of course, it usually is . . . but what about something that seems too evil — too horrific, disturbing — to be true?

Our traditional Thanksgiving column:

They expected to be ‘discussing access’

Monday, November 21st, 2016

I’ve got to admit, I love it.

How open (or closed) are the borders of your mind?

Friday, July 29th, 2016

It’s not a good idea to be so open minded — as the saying goes, sorry if it’s trite — that your brain falls out. Nor is being too closed minded a good idea, since it’s often useful to consider new ideas. So, if you’re thoughtful, you probably employ a mental screening process. Does the […]

To ‘eliminate the requirement that instant check records be destroyed within 24 hours’

Friday, July 1st, 2016

A version of the The following column appears in the July 10 edition of “Firearms News” — formerly “Shotgun News” — on newsstands now.

‘Fugitives in pursuit of a better life’?

Saturday, June 25th, 2016

Nederlander Rene Hartman’s latest thoughtful comment appears as the 21st response under my recent posting “Setting Up the Straw Man,” below. I realize traffic falls off for the comments under a week-old column — especially if said “comments” column is clogged with repetitive sneers from someone who declines to cite or contribute facts, real-world examples, […]
