    Bernie's dangerous embrace of gun control

    Bernie's dangerous embrace of gun control

    Just today, I put up a post challenging the gun control that is dear to the hearts of Bernie (the current Democrat candidate of the week) and the other Democrat candidates. I've done a 180 since my younger days, when I too advocated gun control, and I've made this transition because I've learned that the only way a society can remain safe and free is for moral, law-abiding citizens to have the right to arm themselves. This isn't just my opinion. The data is overwhelming.

    The Transgender Lobby's War on the West, Part II

    The Transgender Lobby's War on the West, Part II

    Over the past week, I’ve put up two posts about something that really gets my goat, which is the way in which those who contend that it’s possible to change ones gender — that is, to be “transgender” — are leading a very aggressive war against reality. In doing so, they are accidentally or deliberately partnering with Marxists to destroy Western culture. Reality will always win, but that fallout from a society’s break with reality can be terrible.

    Impeachment and the Democrats' deadly malaise

    Impeachment and the Democrats' deadly malaise

    Faux impeachment proceedings aren't going to help the Democrat Party faithful's deadly lack of enthusiasm; they're paralyzed by their own ineffectiveness.

    For 3 years, Demo politicians and activists have promised the party faithful they'll impeach Trump. Instead, Trump's been going from one success to another, while the Democrats are left with two silly, probably unconstitutional, meaningless articles of impeachment. No wonder Democrats aren't taking to the streets anymore. They're tired, very tired.

    Even if Trump is as bad NeverTrumpers say, I'll still support him

    Even if Trump is as bad NeverTrumpers say, I'll still support him

    Having looked at what Trump and the Republicans stand for in terms of values, practical politics, and long-term goals for America, and compared that to what the Democrats have offer, I've concluded that I'd vote for Trump no matter how awful a person he was (and I don't think he's awful). On all things -- the Constitution, an armed citizenry, binary sexes, the free market, climate, the national debt, immigration, the rule of law -- Trump is not just the lesser of two evils, he's also the greater good.

Excellent complement to the blog

I’ve been reading the Bookworm blog for years and enjoyed the thoroughly researched posts. This podcast is no different ... and I’m glad to have an audio alternative for Times I can’t read the blog (super for trips in the car.) I enjoyed the surprise “guest appearance” by Bookworm’s dog in Episode 13!

Considered commentary

This podcast is what NPR’s “All Things Considered” lacks. A pointedly direct, yet refreshingly scholarly alternative take on current issues. I look forward to hearing the next episode.
