Something Hard To Swallow

John Murray heard a soft knock on his front door. Looking out a window, he saw his neighbor, ten-year-old Amy Lawton, standing on the porch. She was as cute as the proverbial button, and John often joked with Amy’s dad Bob that he should keep her locked in the basement until she is twenty-five because […]

Highly successful former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy created a firestorm recently when he was asked by a reporter if, were he still a head coach, he would have drafted Michael Sam, the first openly homosexual player taken in the NFL draft. He answered, “I wouldn’t have taken him. Not […]

An Inevitable Conclusion

Well, it happened again. This time a federal judge has overturned the homosexual marriage ban in Wisconsin. For those who are proponents of such “marriages” and, thus, the entire homosexual lifestyle, they must be feeling pretty good about themselves. What they were not capable of getting through the legislative process, they have achieved through the […]

A Scandal Within A Scandal

When Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was secretly recorded making racist remarks, the National Basketball Association recognized immediately that it had a crisis on its hands.

I have a quiz for you. Ready? Identify the following athletes: Mitch McKee, Tyler Carron, Nikko Landeros, Jen Lee, Andy Yohe, Steve Cash. Brady Roybal, Declair Farmer, and Alexi Salamoni.

Rewriting History

Pretend for a moment that it’s 1973, and I am a Supreme Court justice.  In Roe v. Wade, seven of my colleagues have concluded that a woman has an unfettered “right” to abort her child.  The justification for this right found by my fellow justices is that the unborn child is not a person under […]

Everyone Is Out To Lunch

Once in a while I come across a story that has so many facets to it that an entire book could probably be written analyzing each facet.  Such a story comes from Utah. On January 28 of 2014, the Unitah Elementary School in Salt Lake City got itself into some very hot water.  During lunch, […]

Auto Bailouts: The Myth And The Reality

At the 2012 Democrat National Convention, Bill Clinton electrified the crowd when he said, “Now there are 250,000 more people working in the auto industry than the day the companies were restructured.
