on October 18th, 2016 by admin

I just finished reading an intriguing memoir about a segment of American society that is virtually ignored.  Writer J.D. Vance chronicles his life story in Hillbilly Elegy.  Vance highlights the terrible consequences of bad ideas passed from generation to generation.  These bad ideas include eschewing education, using violence as a means to settle disagreements, drug […]

The 25th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall

on November 9th, 2014 by admin

I can’t believe it has been 25 years today since that wall of oppression was brought down; and only due to a Poliburo’s member’s rambling statement.  I believe that wall symbolized the end result of a morally bankrupt ideology.  It laid bare in concrete that people of East Germany, and in Eastern Europe in particular, […]

How To Be A Renaissance Man In Hollywood

on September 1st, 2014 by admin

I’ve been troubled by the suicide of Robin Williams.  As an actor Williams had the rare ability to transition from comedic to dramatic roles.  His performance in Good Will Hunting rightly deserved the Oscar.  Yet, Williams had a dark side.  Whenever he appeared on a talk show his need to please was always evident.  His […]

12 Years A Slave.

on November 23rd, 2013 by admin

No movie has impacted me more than this film.  The only movie that compares to 12 Years is 1989’s Glory.  Not only does 12 Years accurately portray the horrendous nature of slavery, it also shows the indomitable spirit of Solomon Northrup, whose true story this movie is based on.  The acting was superb.  It’s hard […]

Does Male Power Exist?

on September 11th, 2013 by admin

Dr. Warren Farrell book The Myth of Male Power answers the question to my post title.  And that answer is no.  Farrell’s’ book dispels the myth that men are the dominant gender.  From previous posts here and here, I discuss how the feminist movement, in its quest for women to be taken seriously in the […]

The Boston Marathon Terrorist Attacks

on April 24th, 2013 by admin

The aftermath of the terrorist attacks at the Boston Marathon symbolizes the massive evasion perpetuated by the Obama Administration.  This was an intelligence failure from top to bottom-again.  As with all Islamic terrorism, the bombings at the marathon were an attack on hard work, dedication, success, and achievement.  In short, anything related to Western civilization.  […]

9/11 Terrorist Attacks, 11 Years Later.

on September 11th, 2012 by admin

It has been eleven years today since the terrorist attacks.  Every year around this time, I get more angry at the vague tributes from the media.  It’s important to remember that 3000 men, women, and children were murdered by Muslim terrorists.  These terrorists followed the irrational teachings of Islam.  They targeted New York City and […]
