Harambe, Abortion, and Our Appalling Lack of Neighborliness

A significant segment of the population has gotten to the point they feel more kinship with animals than with their fellow human beings. Gorillas are their neighbors; children aren’t. But is this any surprise? In the U.S. we kill nearly a million unborn children a year. How does this happen if not by withholding empathy from them? And you can’t develop the lack of empathy needed to kill the unborn without losing empathy for the born.

Wake-up Call

We human beings are simply not angels, as some would like to believe. And the more power we aggregate to a government run by human beings — the more we put government in control of our lives by making us more and more reliant upon it, even for basic necessities — the more we find ourselves in danger of seeing a very human devil take control of all that power.

A History of “Solid” States

Some people complain about the Electoral College, “My state has been overwhelmingly [political party] for YEARZ, so my vote doesn’t count!” But how true is that assertion? I did some research and, playing the averages, it takes about 25 years for a state to cycle from one political party to the other.

Villains and the People Who Love Them

I’m not saying Bill Cosby is guilty of everything he’s been accused of. But I can’t help but feel the evidence against him is pretty significant and convincing — at least convincing enough to prevent any ridiculous outbursts blindly protesting his innocence. So why is it some people want to offer Bill Cosby complete exoneration?

I’m Done with Marvel Comics (…Maybe)

Marvel is too bogged down in its own history for me to follow anymore. For so long that was never an issue. Heroes would fight villains, occasionally a villain or supporting character would die, occasionally the *heroes* would appear to die (and inevitably come back), but the core of the books never changed. That all seems different now. I don’t know who these heroes are, where they’re going, or what they’re doing, and I find it hard to care.
