When is Easter?

Sunday, March 31st, 2024

Easter is a festival rooted in the Gospels and Exodus. In the Gospels, the Romans execute Jesus during the Jewish Passover feast. The Greek name is Paschal feast. The German word is Easter.  Exodus tells the Jews to celebrate the night the Angel of death “passed over” the Hebrew houses smeared with the blood of new […]

Civil War and Reconstruction

Sunday, January 7th, 2024

It seems there is a fundamental lack of knowledge about the American Civil War and Reconstruction. *Why did the relationship breakdown? Slave owners wanted the right to EXPAND slavery. US voters elected Lincoln because he promised to stop the EXPANSION of slavery. *Why did most of the Slave states attack the USA? They were the […]

Trust

Friday, January 5th, 2024

One of the big questions about “faith” is the modern use of the word.  It has come to mean, especially in the Non-Darwinian states, “belief”.  These Bible Belt Christians will whip you with the Bible and proclaim their own salvation because they believe Jesus is their personal Lord and Savior.  One of my favorite songs […]

Peace is possible once politicians and people stop trying to control each other, stop trying to steal from each other and stop trying to cheat each other. Liberty and Justice for all, […]

Friday, October 13th, 2023

As we wake up to another day of chaos and unwillingness to compromise, it might be helpful to remember that elections have consequences.  Elections are not a game.  Elections are not about teams.  Elections are about the future you want for yourself, your children, and your neighbor. In 2006 the voters in the Gaza Strip […]

Conservative Ideology Is A Debt Problem

Thursday, May 18th, 2023

For the first hundred years of American history, there was one cause of public debt: war.  The United States of America started in debt, and it paid its bills.  There wasn’t another spike in debt to Gross Domestic Product ratio until the American Civil War. At this point, you might ask what is the debt […]

If I Had A Hammer

Thursday, May 11th, 2023

Have you ever heard the saying, “When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail”?  I’ve heard it all my life.  It served me as one of those wise sayings: use the right tool for a job. My dad would certainly agree.  He would get so angry when we used a pair […]
