Me (in response to a Facebook meme): Atheism is fundamentally incompatible with science. Atheist A: “I would like you to explain that. I would never say general creationism is fundamentally incompatible with science. As the existence of a God can not be proven or dis proven. I would say young earth creationism is incompatible with […]
I was heavily involved in martial arts in the 1990s. Having had no access at all to martial arts in high school, I had just finished a career as a wrestler through the 80’s. I started training in Shotokan karate and Cheng-system taiji in college, before being introduced to wonderful style called Hwarang-Do by a […]
Him: “Civilians shouldn’t have AR-15s!” Me: Didn’t serve, or oath-breaker? Him: “I was a tank commander!” Me: All you had to say was “oath-breaker”.

Conversely, if you call your movie “Tarzan”, then make it a faithful adaptation of the source material. And since Hollywood has officially run out of people intelligent enough to write […]
I held my nose last election and voted for the “moderate” Republican to block Obama from another term, but voting for a Clinton-loving liberal to keep a Clinton out of office is an exercise in futility. Republicans, you had the most principled conservative since Calvin Coolidge, and you threw him away. Trump says he doesn’t […]
Donald Trump gets less plausible by the day. Rubio lost almost all respect from me through his de-facto endorsement of John Kasich “to stop Trump” (laughable on several levels). Cruz continues not only to be an exemplary Presidential candidate, but the only worthwhile Presidential candidate.
