Confirmed: Illegal Votes for Hillary Cost Trump the Popular Vote

When I shared this information shortly after the election, I was roundly criticized and ridiculed (and not just by the Left). Facts are stubborn things, though, and here is yet another credible report showing why insiders have long called the Democrats the “evil” party. (I assume there is no need to explain why the Republicans are known for being “stupid”).

P.S. The next time you ask yourself why there are Democrat-run cities that *want* to be called ‘sanctuary’ cities (such as Nashville), remember this article.

The findings are eye-opening. In 2008, as many as 5.7 million noncitizens voted in the election. In 2012, as many as 3.6 million voted, the study said.

In 2016, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that there were 21.0 million adult noncitizens in the U.S., up from 19.4 million in 2008. It is therefore highly likely that millions of noncitizens cast votes in 2016.

Did Votes By Noncitizens Cost Trump The 2016 Popular Vote? Sure Looks That Way

If It Please the Crown…May I Have My Meds?

There are a lot of reasons why healthcare in America costs so much more than it would in a free market, and this sign posted at my local Walgreen’s demonstrates just one way the government drives up costs; they don’t trust you or your doctor to make decisions on your own. You have to return to your physician, sit in his waiting room for a few hours, pay the inflated co-pay (he charges you more because he has to deal with insurance), then return to the pharmacy to get a simple prescription refilled. When you consider the out-of-pocket costs, the insurance payments, your travel expenses and your lost opportunity costs, you’re probably paying 30 or 40 times what the free market value really is.

Tired of ridiculous health care costs? Your state and federal legislators are the primary reason. Let them know what you think.… Read the rest

Is It Moral to Volunteer for the US Armed Services?

I volunteered to serve in the United States Air Force and do not regret the decision.  During my time as an Intelligence Analyst, my unit was involved in Latin America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.  I saw some extraordinary things and the DOD paid for college and grad school.

However, since I left active duty in 1997 I have come to a better understanding of what “Just War” involves, and our nation’s history of nearly non-stop war….for land, wealth and control.  It began with our rebellion against a Christian monarch in England because 3% taxes were unreasonable.  Today most of us pay several times that just in sales taxes…and 10 times that in income taxes in support of a anti-Christian state which persecutes us.

Rarely has the United States fought a defensive war, and even if that prerequisite is ignored, our means have almost always been unjust (such as with the intentional fire-bombing of German civilians or the atomic bombing of Japanese civilians).

Having abandoned our own constitutional republic for a corporatist mobocracy, today we seem to be fighting offensive actions designed to force secular democracy on others.  This wouldn’t even satisfy the neo-conservative principles I once believed in, and that many on the right still cling to as if they were taught by Christ Himself.  Trump’s recent bombing of Syria brought out the worst in the Right, most of whom applauded the decision, but none of whom could explain why it is good that we … Read the rest

How to Lose Friends and Arguments Quickly and Easily

It is rare I find myself in a discussion of any seriousness without someone resorting to personal attacks, ridicule and simple name-calling. I do not think the guilty parties recognize how bad this is for themselves, and their ideas.
 
First, when you engage in one of these activities, you are showing the entire audience-not just the person you are attacking, but everyone who will ever read those words-that you are either ignorant on the matter at hand, and unable to articulate an argument, or of such poor character that you cannot resist the temptation to attack the person, rather than their idea. You get pleasure from insulting them, but care not for advancement of truth.
 

This never reflects well on you, or your argument. It also plants the idea in the mind of your audience that perhaps people who believe like you all suffer from a weak and/or corrupt mind. This is not a fair observation, but it is a likely one. If you want to advance truth, you care more about effective persuasion than hurting your interlocutor.

Secondly, the personal attack represents a violent approach that, on the surface, suggests you are incapable of argumentation, and thus, must resort to violence to get your way. In other words, you are a bully. If you don’t know the difference between a bully, and someone who is simply strong, then you might be guilty of this. A bully rules through fear and force. A strong man rules through power. There is
