After Another School Shooting: Gun Myths

 

I first fired an automatic AR-15 when I was fifteen years old. It was 1965 and my older brother was flying out to mine Hyphong Harbor. I received a very high score with the weapon. It was accurate and could fire an incredible amount of rounds per minute on auto. We were told […]

Changing Representative Government Into Corporate Authoritarianism

Every day we hear bewildered pundits discussing the current executive administration and its internal motives and endgame.

It is true that many of the Administration’s actions are confusing. Despite the investigation into whether they conspired with a foreign government to influence the election, the State Department has balked at enforcing the law passed to […]

Sexual Harassment (A Long And Winding Road To Equality)

I guess its time for me, as I am wont to do, to weigh in on another issue of the time before I go. I will be brief here, only because traditionally this would not be a man’s topic to speak on. (But I guess just saying that identifies my time and place is […]

I had gone to the county courthouse to attend a public information meeting about a controversial issue. The attendance was far more than had been expected, and it was clear that the intended meeting room was quite inadequate. While […]

THE FARCE OF COLUMBUS DAY

When Taino Indians saved Christopher Columbus from certain death Oct. 12, 1492, what occurred next was neither beautiful nor heroic. His diaries indicated he was greeted with the most generous hospitality he had ever known, yet he immediately began the encomienda system tying Indian slaves to their stolen lands, and was personally responsible for […]

Carrying the New Puritan Flag

I was musing today about the supposed backlash against the Obama Administration’s proposal to require religious organizations like universities, hospitals, etc. to provide, as part of their health benefits to their workers, contraceptives.

A Commitment To Indigenous Morality

“Goodness does not thrive in the absence of evil. Selfishness, small vices, and jealousies dominate the people in those times. True goodness only emerges in the threat and presence of Shadow—nestling in the crook of its arm, whispering in its ear, until the Shadow goes mad and men relinquish their fears to cry once […]

As a lifelong gun-owner with a concealed weapon permit and an admitted fascination with the technology and hardware of firearms, I think its time to own up to the realities of gun violence in the U.S. and the honest reason why gun-control is opposed so vehemently. It has to do with the elementary psyche […]
