Define This

The adolescent daughter of friends of ours has an annoying habit. To almost anything said to her, she aggressively retorts, “Define __”. For instance, when I saw her last week, I innocuously greeted her with “Hello Denise, how are things with you?” “Define things” she snapped back. There was, of course, no good answer. One […]

The Missing Morality Matrix

You’re in luck if you want a deal on a battery car. Even with government incentives that penalize Kansas farmers to underwrite the purchase of Teslas in Beverly Hills, e-cars aren’t selling. General Motors has abandoned its e-car production targets. Mercedes Benz is offering discounts of up to $5,000 to buyers of its electric vehicles.

Connect the Dots

Have you seen the connect-the-dots pages meant for adults? As five-year-olds, we may have done a simple page of that type, moving from the dot placed next to the number 1 until we reached the dot next to the number 20. Perhaps a clown or a truck greeted us if we did everything in the

Am I doing wrong by taking government money?

Is it wrong to receive EBT and cash aid? Am I being selfish by not working? I’ve considered your topics on serving others and receiving money for it, would this be making money without serving others?

How Much Is Too Much?

Policies that contradict timeless truths expressed in the Bible simply don’t work.  Confiscatory rates of taxation and punitive inheritance taxes fly in the face of wisdom contained in ancient texts revered by tens of millions of Jews and Christians. These texts are relevant today because ideologies which the Bible frowns upon inevitably turn out to

Music, Morality and Mayhem

During 1969 many young people gathered at rock music festivals at Woodstock in upstate New York and at Altamont in Northern California.  Both events were as much about sex and violence as about music and despite the veneer of innocuous love, both had a dark undercurrent.  Rapes, brutal beatings, numerous injuries and countless concussions were
