Charlie Sheen was fired. Should we care so much?

March 9, 2011


I’m now blogging over at Liberty Ink Journal… and I took on the Tiger Blood: Charlie Sheen, with his self-destructive behavior and his repetitive delusional media interviews, is exploding across the news, as a self-destructive three-ring circus in one Hollywood star’s body. Just today, he was officially fired by CBS and Warner Brothers, and once […]

Book Review: “Turning Controversy into Church Ministry”

January 11, 2011


Reviewing W.P. Campbell’s book, “Turning Controversy into Church Ministry; A Christlike Response to Homosexuality” should be easy. I’ll just write a bunch of tried and true sayings like “love the sinner, hate the sin”, “speak the truth in love”, and “put Christ back in Christian”. There ya have it. I can dust off my hands […]

Tax Cuts! It’s a Christmas miracle!

December 9, 2010


President Obama’s press conference yesterday about keeping the Bush tax cuts was astounding. If anyone didn’t believe in the astounding groupthink of the White House Press Corps, they will now. Nearly every question was termed in an aggressive fashion, angrily gnashing their collective teeth at a president who caved right when they thought he might […]

“It’s Time to Get a Gun” – The 2nd Amendment, gun owners, and Bubba the heartless baby seal killer

December 2, 2010


So, last weekend, my family went to Gun Camp. No, I’m serious. Being from the country, I wasn’t all that surprised when my dad gave us handguns as soon as we tied the knot, but a four-day defensive handgun training?! To be honest, I thought it was a bit much. I’d been shooting soda cans […]

Post 2010 election puzzlement: Why California stayed Liberal

November 3, 2010


It’s no surprise that Republicans were going to win big last night. Even the New York Times, who made this lovely red and blue map, can’t help but admit that it appears that much of the country is bleeding red at a ferocious pace, daring Obama/Pelosi et al. to continue their blatant disregard of the […]

“I’m nobody’s puppet” Gloria Allred and Meg Whitman’s maid-gate

October 7, 2010


Here in California, all we’ve been hearing about the last few days is how horribly Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman treated her poor housekeeper of nine years, Nicky Diaz. We’ve heard about how Whitman knew she was undocumented and yet continued to employ her in violation of Whitman’s own publically-held principles, how Nicky was eight […]

Everybody’s been asking me what I think about Prop. 8. OK, fine, you twisted my arm. I’ll talk about controversial things!

August 5, 2010


So, federal Judge Vaughn Walker in California overturned Proposition 8 yesterday, calling it irrational.  In a written opinion, Walker was in favor of rights activists who argued that a November 2008 referendum which barred gays and lesbians from tying the knot was discriminatory and therefore violated the US Constitution. In an unrelated story, 79% of […]
