Entitlement of Ideas

"During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act." George Orwell
sodahead.com After a rather minor incident in a video game, I realized how scary and how dangerous an entitlement-minded society is. Once a person believes they are ENTITLED to something you have, your help, or a handout, there is a downward spiral of demands. We see it in America today. Whole groups of people believe other people in our owe [...]

Falling

Falling
Have you ever had a rug ripped out from underneath you? Literally or figuratively, they both have a similar feeling (I know this from personal experience.) One minute you’re happily walking along, and the next minute you find yourself overcome with this dropping feeling in your gut. Your endocrine system immediately floods your body wit [...]

Non-religious Argument Against Homose...

Equal Sign Black White
Equal Rights Let’s dismantle this argument about “equal rights.” First, you must establish that the institution of marriage IS a right. Then you must DEFINE that institution.

Rebuking “Conservatives”

Rebuking “Conservatives”
I’m a Conservative. No surprise there. I take my political and religious beliefs very serious. Of course, like most anyone I do differ on some issues (like the death penalty…I’m unsure about), but if you have me take a political quiz I’ll almost always come out “Conservative”. If this website wasn’t e [...]

The Conversation Matthew Edmund It is a crime. It damages and demoralizes both men and women. It opens society to a whole host of problems. It takes adva [...]
