1. If you were one of the intended victims hiding in a closet, wouldn’t you want to have a concealed handgun on your person rather than being completely helpless because you were legally disarmed by ineffective gun control laws?
2. I recently moved from Prescott Valley, Arizona, where I lived for a year and a half. This incident would not have happened there. Why? Too many people carry legally concealed handguns. The terrorist, or psychotic shooters, would have been shot in short order. Yes, violence is rarely the answer. But when it is the answer, it is the only answer. The only solution to a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Continue reading
Conventional wisdom says that a selfish man will be greedy. He will lie, cheat, and steal. The problem is that lying, cheating, and stealing do not work. These actions do not serve a man’s best interest. What does is studying hard in school, earning a degree, getting a good job, working hard, building a reputation for honesty and dependability, and being a good friend. If you are good to your friends, you will have and keep good friends. Conventional wisdom is wrong; conventional selfishness is irrational. One should be rationally selfish. Continue reading
In light of Obama’s statements regarding the attacks in Paris a few days ago, I needed to send this email out asap. I believe Obama is a threat not only to the individual rights and freedoms of Americans, but to America’s continued leadership position in the world. This country has been a beacon of freedom to “oppressed” people throughout its history.
Many Muslims have come to America because of her freedoms and opportunity, but they are hypocrites when they also wish to live under Sharia law. Continue reading
The battle between freedom and tyranny in the United States is a battle between Individualism and Collectivism. The choice between the Right or the Left is a false alternative because they are both Collectivists in Washington DC. The concept of individual rights logically leads to a politics of Individualism. The ideologically opposite politics is Collectivism, its three variations being Socialism, Fascism, and Communism. Continue reading
The fundamental problem with any redistribution of the wealth by our government is that it violates the property rights of the person who earned the money. It is robbing Peter to pay (give to) Paul. Whether welfare, entitlements, or subsidies, it is a violation of property rights.
“A man who does not own what he produces is a slave…” Continue reading
I think the article below is devastating to the Black Lives Matter movement. I would be extremely ashamed if I was one of them. The fact that they are not embarrassed implies stupidity.
On its face the phrase that black lives matter is blatantly racist. When blacks persist in repeating it, they call their intelligence into question. Continue reading
The statement, “I’m black, therefore I can’t be racist” is obviously wrong. It is overtly racist! The statement that “Black Lives Matter” implies that only black lives matter. Yet, saying that “All lives matter” will brand you as a racist. Continue reading
A fundamental idea affects people’s values and behavior. This shapes a society’s culture and politics and thereby determines the course of the nation. Fundamental ideas (i.e., philosophy) cause history. Continue reading
What is the major difference between immigrants to America in the past and too many immigrants today? Immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries had a strong desire to assimilate into American culture. They were escaping from a bad situation and were looking for a new life of opportunity. America was the land of opportunity because it was the land of the free. Continue reading
The gay rights movement is full of hate! They are angry, intolerant, and vengeful. They display “mean-spiritedness” on steroids! It is a big lie that they only want gay marriage and equal rights. They want far more. Continue reading
