Reflections On Life, Literacy, and Legality

I just read the following headline from MSNBC: “Justice Sotomayor, the conscious of the supreme court.” If Sotomayor represents judicial “consciousness,” then perhaps a full supply of sleeping pills for judges everywhere would go a long way to answering all the world’s problems. Millions of tiny humans would surely appreciate a little less judicial consciousness, on this standard.  The error is repeated in...

I’m a socially verified really really smart person. Therefore, I can spew whatever nonsense I want, and you should accept my conclusions with unthinking deference.

Amusingly, just a couple of days after posting my brief argument about “Abortion Rights,” I have stumbled across the following title of an article from (no surprise) Salon: “I’m a philosophy professor. The argument for making abortion illegal is illogical.”

The author, one Nathan Nobis, announces his professional credibility as a judge of logic in his article’s very title…

Abortion Rights

The case for abortion that depends on denying any right to life to the human embryo, according to a limiting standard of what constitutes “true” human life, was always on shaky ground. Modern medical experience and practice seem to have nullified that limiting standard outright from an empirical point of view. Common sense, which is to say basic human logic, has always nullified...

Vested Interests

In an interview on Book TV, Thomas Sowell explained that he was once asked whether he had ever tried to persuade America’s leading race hustlers to accept his anti-progressive views on racial politics and affirmative action, to which he answered, “I’m sure Jesse Jackson makes ten times what I make. How do you convince a man to reduce his income by ninety percent?”...

Selective Moralism

I see that America’s Catholic bishops, comprising one of the Church’s weirder bodies of representatives, have suddenly decided that it might be time to consider the possibility of maybe holding a meeting to discuss the suggestion that President Joe Biden, a Catholic who has spent much of his very prominent public life as a practical advocate, supporter, and legislative facilitator of abortion, should...

Scanning the Kavanaugh Sex Crime Times in Search of 2,000 Dead Babies

Just for laughs, I scrolled down MSN’s home page this morning, scanning the headlines they have posted over the past few days. I quickly counted six headlines related to the “latest” rehash of Justice Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual misbehavior thirty years ago as a college freshmen, each of the six headlines directly based on one allegation regarding a teenage drinking party, a party at...

Random Reflections: Rape! Incest! Jews!

Two members of the Democratic Party’s Goon Squad, or Boob Squad, or Doom Squad, or whatever they are — Tlaib and Omar to be specific — have been barred from entering Israel in what is obvious proof of the global Zionist plot. You see, they planned a trip to Israel that had as its sole objective the promotion of the radical Muslim agenda...

Random Thoughts: Ted Cruz, Death Cults, Selfless Billionaires

Today, I see the following headline on Right Scoop: “WATCH: Ted Cruz GRILLS Google rep on allegations of anti-Trump bias exposed by Project Veritas.”  I can understand why Lyin’ Ted thinks no one should be allowed to show “bias” against his beloved daddy. But shouldn’t he have the emotional maturity to at least keep this fawning hero-worship to the privacy of his own...

The Great Progressive Debate: “Is this particular killing worth our trouble?”

Ah, it’s summer, the season of suntans, barbecues…and British court-ordered ritual baby-killings. This year’s death cult festival features the tale of a Roman Catholic family, opposed on religious grounds to abortion, fighting to save the life of their perfectly healthy unborn child from the government’s overzealous limb-rippers and head-crushers. Fortunately, for the time being at least, this story appears to have eked out...

Abortion for Abnormality, Part I: The Popular View

The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to rule on a portion of Indiana’s recent law outlawing abortion based on abnormalities, deformities, or other imperfections discovered in pre-natal testing. Lower courts have already stricken this ban from the law, and Indiana anti-abortionists were petitioning to have the Supreme Court restore the original wording of the law. Clarence Thomas, the only current member of the...
