What If The Choice Is Between God And Government? From Where Does YOUR Authority Derive?

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

(Brunette here.) Are you skeptical about religion? Yes? . . . me too. Are you equally skeptical of Atheism? (Ditto.) Atheism seems quite popular at present; I take no issue with individual atheists, though evangelizing atheists (evangelists of any sort, frankly) DO irk me. Faith is an extremely personal thing to those who possess it. […]

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 […]

Human Wrongs: Are The Most Vulnerable Voices To Be Silenced? Why? And By Whom?

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

(Brunette here.) Tyranny heralds its arrival first through confiscation of speech — via Orwellian inversion of language, and/or suppression of undesirable voices ‘by any means necessary,’ whether subtle or brutal or BOTH. If you want to determine who the aspiring tyrants are in a given society, and who they intend to oppress, look around to […]

Hit-And-Run Leftism: A Response to [Redacted]

Monday, June 19th, 2017

Brunette here again. Guess I’m in an uncharacteristically chatty mood lately . . . not to worry, Vin will be back. And I’ll revert to my usual quieter self sooner or later. 😉

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 […]

Have yourself a merry critter Christmas . . . :-)

Saturday, December 24th, 2016

For several years now, we’ve opted for live trees that we could plant in the spring . . . here’s our little Xena standing guard, after I finished decorating. Had to be careful not to use glass ornaments or other breakables, thanks to our furry little helpers. 😉

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?

Never watch the TV — haunting Alan Watts wisdom

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Brunette here. Been quiet for a while, have had a lot on my mind lately . . . both to do with this ongoing train wreck of an election, and other more mundane matters. Vin and I have not had a TV for years (I don’t want one in the house, period.) He doesn’t seem […]
