WHAMMO Moments

I suspect no one who is reading my blog thinks writing a book is easy, much less an epic heroic fantasy. I remember thinking I would write Creed of Kings in 6 months while having a full-time job! Can you believe that? I assumed it would be difficult, like running a marathon. Confident in my creativity and inspiration I fiddled around with an idea and started.  Some 300,000 words later…well, you get the idea.

If I wasn’t such a perfectionist, I’d have a pile of rejection letters.… Read more

Getting Older

Getting older… Getting over …vanity of youth …insanity of fad …from the blind side of sought and the wrong side of ought. Journey out of the naiveté, but ache and wonder resides and spills from the cloven seasons of my heart, even as I laugh, life moves in for the kill.

What was the future is beyond my furrowed brow, but somehow, brightness shines in the valleys between far away thrills, bridging the distance of that old resistance in an instance, to other hidden fields.… Read more

Are Conservatives Fascist?

If you have a well functioning brain, ignorance is not bliss. Some ignorant people are very smart and plenty of high and low IQs are cluttered and trashed by the false-information age. So the field is kinda leveled between the brainiacs and knuckleheads.  If caught early, one can point them all in the politically correct direction.

Teach them it is high-minded to “question all” – which really means only question the Judea-Christian worldview, in turn offer answers that give a false sense of enlightenment.… Read more

Politics 101: An Awakening

I gave a speech (more of a stand up routine) in McKinney, Texas at Collin County Conservative Republicans (CCCR) back in 2009. I loved doing it. It was my first captive live audience. I did not pick an easy topic. I mixed it with my style of humor to lighten things up. My talk was based on Jonah Goldberg’s book Liberal Fascism, a great book!

I know my talk upset a woman in the front row.… Read more

Conan the Barbarian: Quick Review

Jason MomoaSince the updated Conan the Barbarian, Jason Mamoa, doesn’t have the convenient accent of Arnold, they made him do the Batman grunt/growl voice, which was a bit annoying. Over-kill on blood. Too much blood is just as unrealistic as no blood. To gory (gross) for my taste, there’s one moment when you blink and turn and people groaned at the grossness. Story structure was good but not well supported by a gimmicky plot in places. Unabashed with the naked women early in the movie, which is kinda silly, really.… Read more

Martin Luther King’s and Gandhi’s Non-violence

The pacifism/non-violence these icons used should not be a universal truth. The non-violence used by Gandhi and MLK was a method used in correct circumstances. I don’t know if MLK would have used it in all cases, I do know Gandhi would have. If MLK or Gandhi would have tried non-violence in Taliban Afghanistan or Nazi Germany they would’ve been beheaded or gassed and thus ending their great moral movements. Pacifism assumes everyone is good at heart and reasonable, that the oppressor or tyrant only need enlightenment brought about by the suffering of the oppressed.… Read more

Seventeen (17) things that critics are saying about Rick Perry (via Pesky Truth)

This clears up a lot of questions.

Note: there is a link to a separate post detailing the positive things that Rick Perry supporters are saying about him at the end of this piece.  [Last updated: 8/18/2011] Over the past couple of months Rick Perry has been considering a run for POTUS. As of Saturday, August 13, he's in with both feet.  Since he’s been Governor of Texas for over ten years, folks from the other “56 states” are asking Texans what kind of governor he's been and what … Read More

The Lie of New Age Open-mindedness

Open-mindedness is, without question, considered a cardinal virtue of the new age. To deconstruct frameworks of understanding the world is ‘open-minded’. To tear constructs apart and leave scattered confusion is ‘unbiased’. To ignore the devastation wrought on a soul is ‘enlightenment’. To fill the void with the thin watery tasteless gruel of “the truth to you is not the truth to me” is ‘wholesome’.

I don’t consider the absolute open mind to be virtuous. Thankfully, some people are finally starting to think about it more although it is perhaps too late for our culture. … Read more

Doubting God: A Spiritual Quest (and some definitions of the divine)

I’ve doubted God’s existence and came pretty close to not believing. At one point in life, I was agnostic and practically an atheist in action, having no fear or awe of God. Due to early profound spiritual experiences in my late teens and early twenties, I never became an atheist at heart. We all have our reasons. I won’t go into it, but I left mainstream Christianity in the early 90s – I believe it was a profound error that, at the time, seemed like Luther’s departure from Catholicism, the spiritual highway had been removed of toll booths, I thought.… Read more
