Harvard Religious Bigotry Can’t Count

The mainstream media is biased, so they have no problem posturing with some Harvard religious bigotry. When you hear an “expert” prattling on about something, remember: He may be a totally ignorant, bigoted, and biased yahoo popping off about his own pet cause and ideology—and be totally and completely wrong. Robert D. Putnam is Malkin Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University. Sounds like an amazing title, and a smart guy, right? Well, he was quoted in the Washington Post saying Christian Read more […]

Hero from Kentucky Goes to Help Iraqi Refugees

A dentist is taking time to travel to serve Iraqi refugees and help them in other ways. Hero (noun): A person, typically a man, who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. North American – another term for submarine sandwich. David Sperow would be an example of the first definition. Many times he’s freely chosen to travel into the most dangerous places on earth to help the oppressed. [See also, “The Christian with a $56 Million ISIS Read more […]

Obamacare Wipes Out Private, Free Clinics

Free clinics are closing down because donors assume Obamacare has eliminated the needs. It hasn’t. Ahh, another victory for the Health Care insurers and bureaucrats, thanks to Obamacare! As the Wall Street Journal reports: “Health Law Hurts Some Free Clinics.” Some free health clinics serving the uninsured are shutting their doors because of funding shortfalls and low demand they attribute to the Affordable Care Act’s insurance expansion. Nearly a dozen clinics that have closed Read more […]

People Provide for Woman Left Unprotected by Government

The police and National Guard left her unprotected. But people voluntarily helped this Ferguson woman. You know that a business owner pays lots of local taxes. These are supposed to cover things like police protection of local property. But the police don’t compete to win contracts with business owners. They have an automatic regional monopoly. Businesses can hire additional protection, but they can’t stop paying  for local police “services.” So the National Guard standing Read more […]

Bill and Melinda Gates Giving Money to the Rich?

Bill and Melinda Gates are credited with being philanthropists. But one has to look at the full picture before one can be sure what “philanthropy” means for the couple and their foundation. I expect there will be some significant pushback on this article in the Guardian, but what it claims is quite plausible. Most of the $3bn (£1.8bn) that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has given to benefit hungry people in the world’s poorest countries has been spent in the US, Britain Read more […]

What to Do with Free Money? Welfare v. Work Ethic

Last year I wrote to someone getting free money, “An Open Letter to the Welfare Cage: Dear Lucy, Nothing from THEM is ever Free.” Lucy was a woman who seemed both articulate and honest who called into a local conservative radio show. The two hosts were talking about people living off welfare and why anyone would live that way. She replied, If someone is going to give me money to do nothing and get to smoke pot all day, why wouldn’t I take the money? (That’s a paraphrase: you can listen to Read more […]

Can Mark Zuckerburg Give Away Money in a Helpful Way?

Mark Zuckerburg and his wife Priscilla Chan have announced they are giving away $120 million to the San Francisco school system. According to Newser.com this means that the billionaire couple “gave parents there a reason to applaud their wealthy neighbors.” I have no personal experience in the issue, but it looks to me like nothing is more tricky than giving away an immense amount of money. I hope Zuckerburg and Chan are up to the task or have trusted stewards to help them. My first worry Read more […]

Daytona Beach Enforces “Charity” Cartel by Ticketing People for Feeding the Homeless

Homeless people can be smelly, unattractive, and sometimes dangerous. Of course, the vast majority aren’t dangerous at all, but you never know. Nevertheless, it is simply a fact that population centers have a number of people who are homeless. This is especially true in warmer places since, if a homeless person can scratch up bus fare, it is far better to be homeless in an area that doesn’t get freezing cold. People try to help them, and that means other people might have to see them at the Read more […]

Pope Francis Should Show Some Humility Before Capitalism

The Roman Catholic Church has done amazing good in the world. One thing I would credit the institution for is teaching the Ten Commandments in Western Europe effectively enough to plant the seed of the rule of law and private property so that capitalism could bring prosperity to the world at a level never witnessed before in human history. I guess the Pope is not interested in taking credit on behalf of his denomination. Pope Francis is a published author of a major work for the first time under Read more […]

Wal-Mart Condemned for Asking for Help for Poor

An Ohio Wal-Mart had a couple of bins on display with a sign: “Please donate food items here so Associates in Need Can Enjoy A Family Dinner.” The group, OUR Walmart  took a picture of the sign with the bins and are spreading it around as proof that Wal-Mart underpays its employees. Pretty amazing. The bins were not for every employee. According to CNN Money, Wal-Mart spokesman Kory Lundberg said that particular store has held similar food donation drives for several years. The food Read more […]

We Are NOT The World’s Police!

News of possible chemical weapons being used in Syria against rebels has once again brought numerous American politicians and activists to call for US intervention.  Obama had promised that the US would be forced to get involved if it was proven that chemical weapons were used in the Syrian civil war. The news of the chemical attack this week caused the White House to say: “The United States strongly condemns any and all use of chemical weapons. Those responsible for the use of chemical weapons Read more […]

Liberals Love to Mix the Bible and Politics (Sometimes)

Liberals will use the Bible when they believe it defends a position that supports their agenda. You’ll even find liberals using the Bible to support homosexual marriage by quoting familiar passages like Matthew 7:1–2 and Mark 12:31 but ignoring Matthew 19:1–12 and other anti-homosexual passages (Rom. 1:18–32; 1 Cor. 6;9–11; 1 Tim. 1:8–10). They take a bits and pieces approach to the Bible (like a lot of so-called conservative Christians.) Matthew 7:1 states: “Do not judge so that Read more […]
