This is speculation on my part, but it something to think about. With all of the fake news surrounding us, I can only speculate.
All Americans should be aware of the North Korean threat that could kill up to 90% of our population. They say within a year, but I think it will only take 3 or 4 months. Think about what will happen with no electricity–anywhere! Everything stops. Everything. Continue reading
Margaret Thatcher, the Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, once said that: “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples’ money.” Wealth redistribution by government is an essential component of socialism. But, it is morally wrong because it is theft. Whether committed by the local criminal, the mafia, or the government, theft is theft. The person on the other end of this transaction is receiving stolen property. All of it is wrong because it violates the right to private property. Continue reading
Below is an email I received this morning. I will try to briefly put it into a wider “big picture” perspective. The bottom line is that this is all about your freedoms. It is about the kind of government you will have in the future United States. This will determine whether or not you and your children will live as slaves. Your “right” to the pursuit of your happiness is in serious jeopardy. Continue reading
Anyone who criticizes Thomas Jefferson or any of our Founding Fathers because they owned slaves is a complete idiot! They are implying that everyone must be both correct and consistent in their views. Are they? The first thing they should do is to take an honest look in the mirror to see the biggest hypocrite in their own miserable lives. Continue reading
The idea of cultural appropriation is stupid on its face! The idiots who came up with it are intellectual retards! If I go to a Mexican restaurant, I am honoring Mexican cuisine and culture by spending my money on it. The restaurant owners will be happy for the increased sales which adds to the profitability of their restaurant. The owners are also promoting Mexican culture! Continue reading
A new study ‘blows the Greenhouse Theory out of the water”. Interesting…. It will take several years for the shock of all of this to be reviewed and verified, but at least it might be okay now to be skeptical about global warming. Continue reading
On Memorial Day we should be aware of and appreciate what our military men fought for. They fought and many died for our rights and freedoms. Our rights should be considered sacred. Americans need to better understand what individual rights are, and are not. We are losing more every day because Americans do not understand what they are, and are not. Continue reading
The title essay (first chapter) in the small paperback Philosophy: Who Needs It? may be the most important essay for young people to read, but it is not enough by itself. The essay explains that philosophy underlies all of our views, opinions, and perspectives. It is a conceptual connection that cannot be denied. But beyond that, young people searching for meaning in their lives need to know that there is an answer, there is a solution for them and for America so they should not despair–but time to act is short. The answer is a “philosophy for living on earth”; one that can rationally explain why their highest purpose is to achieve their personal happiness in their lifetime–and that this is realistically possible.

Emotionalism has become far too common and acceptable in our culture today. Real knowledge is derived from reality through the use of our mental faculty, through the use of reason. It starts with observations which leads to the formation of principles, concepts, and knowledge. The scientific method is an example of this process.
What is the relationship of reason to emotion? Continue reading
I was one of the volunteer judges for the oral presentations of a high school’s annual senior projects. What I discovered was alarming! These students were not being taught how to think; they were concrete-bound mentalities. They thought about things, about concretes; they did not readily think on the conceptual level.
