Odds & Ends

How about a panoply of cartoonish insight on a variety of issues? Let’s start with that ever-present “movement” that’s occupying the airwaves. The nature of the movement is finally becoming obvious to almost everyone. Well, almost everyone: Back in Congress, the so-called Super Committee is attempting to hammer out a deficit-reduction package. That should be easy. A small group certainly can accomplish more than the entire Congress, right? Right? President Obama has been doing whatever he can via executive orders…. Read more »

Meanwhile, Overseas . . .

I haven’t said much about foreign affairs lately, so let’s catch up a bit. The really big news, of course, is the death of Qaddafi in Libya. Some are touting it as a major step forward for “democracy.” While I’m glad the delusional tyrant is gone, don’t count me among those who believe the future is rosy in that part of the world: Change is not always synonymous with progress. Speaking of change, that would be nice for Venezuela. Yet… Read more »

Revelation 21:1-7

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His… Read more »

The End Has Come

Pardon me for a small divergence from the usual today. You see, tomorrow evening marks the end of a mini-era: the final episode of Lost. Yes, I admit it, I am a confirmed “Lostie.” Perhaps it has something to do with my undergraduate degree in radio, TV, and film production, but I truly enjoy and appreciate quality work in storytelling. For me, that’s what Lost has been. While it is not explicitly a Biblically themed story, there has been quite… Read more »

Government Control of the Economy: A Primer

A primer is something that provides elementary lessons; it teaches the basics. There is a segment of the American public that needs a primer on what happens when the government tries its hand at directing the economy. Personally, I think the lessons are quite obvious, but ignorance is widespread. The first lesson is that our political leaders [depending on who is in charge, of course] often believe that government spending is the key to prosperity. In fact, President Obama has stated this… Read more »

It's All about Him

Before I start, I want to acknowledge the fact that a camera can catch anyone in a pose that is unflattering. We probably all have pictures we would like to burn. So, that point is made. Regardless, if someone is continually caught in a certain pose, it could be that he or she has a habit of striking said pose. In the case of President Obama, he has the tendency to stick his chin in the air and come across… Read more »

Palintology

To the great chagrin of liberals throughout the nation, Sarah Palin is once again front and center in American politics. Since resigning as governor of Alaska last July, she has built a Facebook following of over one million. She has used that vehicle to post her thoughts on a number of high-profile national issues. Her posts have been direct and based on analysis of public policy that relies on excellent academic research. This obviously has been her platform to make… Read more »
