It’s not that I have something to hide; I just have nothing I want you to see. The Girl (played by Amanda Seyfried) in the movie Anon Privacy is a nebulous topic. The so-called Constitutional “privacy” of the United States is far more fluid than most people will acknowledge. In fact, based upon recent cultural… Continue reading Public Privacy

Definitions Impact Understanding
The horrible killing of Nazimuddin Samad is a crime in and of itself. As I read the reporting of it, however, I saw that there were definitely different pictures of the incident, of Nazimuddin Samad himself, and the world. Aljazeera described his comments as pro-atheist, while also calling him a secularist. Aljazeera quoted Imran Sarker… Continue reading Definitions Impact Understanding
The Pursuit of Happiness
I’ve been annoyed lately (not always a good thing before writing a post). Probably centered around the Fourth of July (the formal U.S.A. Independence Day), there is always a spate of articles about the U.S.A. being founded on Christian principles, which is somewhat true. Then there is the argument over whether Thomas Jefferson was a… Continue reading The Pursuit of Happiness
Armed and Polite
The Munchkin Wrangler has posted Why the Gun is Civilization. I think I’m getting to the point (Thanks, Allen) to where politics, even the 2nd Amendment, aren’t nearly as important as they used to be. That is not to say that they are unimportant to me, but the longer I walk along the Way, God’s… Continue reading Armed and Polite
The Dollar is Falling! The Dollar is Falling!
In Me and Ron Paul, I knocked some of the historical basis for the assault on the Federal Banking System. While I still believe that a central system does need to exist, Thomas Breton’s article, Chickens Are Returning to the Roost, may cause me to modify my perspective somewhat. While I still believe that basing… Continue reading The Dollar is Falling! The Dollar is Falling!
Me and Ron Paul
This Ron Paul closing speech was recently posted at Right Mind (Religious Right Boos Ron Paul). I tried to post my entire response to Ron Paul’s speech there, but I guess I wrote too much. Anyways, here is my opinion on the matter. While I agree with Ron Paul’s sentiments regarding limited government, I would… Continue reading Me and Ron Paul
Today is Constitution Day (220th anniversary of the completion and signing of the Constitution)
A Moment of Silence for A Moment of Silence
Governor Rod Blagojevich of Illinois vetoed a ‘moment of silence’ bill for students (Archived Copy). Now, oddly enough, I find that it doesn’t bother me that much. Why? It is not the “separation of church and state” that has been misinterpreted for so long. Partly, it is the coercive nature of it. While I believe… Continue reading A Moment of Silence for A Moment of Silence
Raid on Jefferson’s Office CONSTITUTIONAL
I’m trying to avoid blogging as it’s a great procrastination tool.Â However, the latest news on the District Courts ruling (here is the decision) is the raid on Rep. Jefferson’s office was unconstitutional.Â READ THE DECISION FIRST, before writing STUPID, MISLEADING, and flat out WRONG headlines! Even the dissenting judge ruled that the raid was… Continue reading Raid on Jefferson’s Office CONSTITUTIONAL
THIS is what the 1st Amendment is about
As much as many of us of the so-called “religious right”, decry the attack on our faith in the public square, at least we here in the United States aren’t experiencing what our faithful brethren in Europe are experiencing.
