The Fairness Fraud: This is behind the DEI, CRT, Woke charades

We hear the term “fair” used a lot these days. As stated in prior commentaries, the Left is very skilled at manipulating the language to their political advantage — and this is representative. Some (of many) examples: a) having open borders is fair for disadvantaged foreigners, b) giving special treatment to LGBTQ+ persons is fair for these mistreated minorities, c) promoting the […]

The Attempted Assassination — Part 2

This is a good time for some critical thinking. By now there are likely a thousand articles written about the attempted assassination of Donald Trump. For those who missed it, this was my initial commentary — and it still remains rather original in tone and perspective. Many of the others are quite good and I cited several […]

The Extraordinary Chevron Case: Part 2

Major Good News that the Mainstream Media is not publicizing.  For the first time ever, I’m basically repeating a post (from July 2nd). Four reasons: a) many US readers were away last week for July 4th vacations, b) this is an exceptionally important matter that will affect everyone, c) this ruling was a stab in the back against the deep state (unelected bureaucrats), and d) it once again shows […]

Chevron & Remdesivir — Major Good News that the Mainstream Media is not publicizing

To understand this matter, I’ll use the FDA as an example of a government agency losing its way. How has it gone astray? Start with its own Mission Statement: “The Food and Drug Administration is responsible for protecting the public health by ensuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human drugs…” Let’s say that scientists, medical […]

My Assessment of the Debate

A Non-Political Perspective! I started to watch last night’s (6-27-24) Presidential debate but had to turn it off after 40 minutes. I just couldn’t take it anymore. I couldn’t shake the feeling that Paul Revere was anxiously riding through the countryside, trying to wake us up… Regretfully, these days almost any commentary on any topic immediately becomes politicized. For example, if someone […]

What’s the Opposite of Critical Thinking?

As you’ll see, there’s a LOT of this going on! In my last commentary, I elaborated on a proposed definition of Critical Thinking. Although there were a few suggested refinements, I received no major objections. (If you have any, please put them in the comments below.) Equally important is what Critical Thinking is NOT. Towards that end, […]

What IS Critical Thinking? It’s about time we discussed that!

I’ve now written commentary for a few years about Critical Thinking, without formally defining it! Although that might seem to be a bit nonsensical, my position regarding Critical Thinking is similar to that famous phrase about pornography: “It’s hard to define it, but you know it when you see it.” Why is Critical Thinking a Big […]

Is Critical Thinking a Good or Bad Thing?

This is absolutely NOT an academic tempest in a teapot. Most people would probably think that this is a foolish question — how can critical thinking be a bad thing? Let’s back up a bit, and you’ll see the issue… Point #1 is that — by FAR — the biggest fear of those on the Left is to have critical-thinking citizens. […]

The “Evils of Whiteness”

Yet another element of the secular religion.  Since Conservative organizations aren’t engaged in a well-coordinated response to the Left’s mendaciousness, it signals the Left that they can get away with pushing the boundaries even further. Like a child testing the resolve of their parents, this will continue until they get appropriate resistance, or they succeed […]

There is No Such Thing as Social Justice Here

Another element of the secular value system. Where is it promised (and by who) that Life is Fair? There is no such promise! In fact, the exact opposite is true: Life is guaranteed to be unfair and unjust! In addition to just bad luck, every citizen of the planet will have unfairness and injustice repeatedly thrust upon them due to one or […]
