Racism Real Reason For Hatred of Mother Teresa

Travelling over the weekend, I stopped in a cafe in an airport waiting for my train. Up on the screen there was the BBC News, with subtitles (which aren’t always the most accurate and seem as if they were written by someone who flunked stenography school). There was a report concerning the canonization of Mother…

Why I Support Male Privilege

The title of this post is provocative and that is slightly mischievious on my part. Unfortunately the world we live in requires headline-grabbing statements. I could have put in a more convoluted, more accurate summary of what I want to say forthwith. But the message might have got lost in the mix. So I hope…

Liberal-Leftie Construct Myths

Has this ever happened to you? You hear of some half-baked new government proposal, a proposal which you know is fundamentally wrong, which is being promoted to either placate some elite lobby or attack a political opponent. It’s a policy that is unethical, unsustainable, ludicrous, unnecessary. It attacks deeply cherished values. You point out how…

How Western is the Bikini?

France has recently decided that women must bare their flesh at the beach. No burkinis allowed. Not my idea of liberty but hey, France is a sovereign nation and I don’t have to go there. The rationale for the banning of the burkini seems to be that it is a foreign and alien importation into…

Audacity of Abortion Tweets?: Just a Lifestyle Choice

Today two women from Ireland – where the wickedness of abortion is virtually illegal – tweeted about their ‘journey’ from the Republic to an abortion clinic in the UK, targeting Premier Enda Kenny with their tweets. This brutal and exhibitionist act drew great praise from Twitter groupies and from celebrities. I was about to say…

Socialism is the Bondholder of the Liberal Society

Bondholders? Never heard of ’em until this whole recession and economic uncertainty stuff began happening. 8 years into the recession they dare not call a depression (think it’s bad for market confidence, or something like that) you’d want to be stuck in a cave on a desert island not to have heard of these bondholders….

Success and Failure

For a long time I’ve got this success and failure thing wrong. Too often I’ve confused success and failure with winning or losing. In reality success is about learning. Success is having something you didn’t have before which has been acquired through achievement. Learning is about surmounting a deficit of ignorance. If you learn then…

Mafia, JFK and the CIA (Video)

This is a short video I made. Judith Exner, a lover of JFK and Sam Giancana, is featured. The immediate purpose of the video is to show the way that organized crime was involved in the very highest echelons of power. A more broader aim was to demonstrate the strange alliances that occur in politics…

Let’s Hear it For … Dan Quayle????

Let’s face it: if you had to choose out of all the social media/sharing sites, it’d have to be YouTube. How many times have you been reminded of something, or been told of something you never knew existed?; or seen something incredible or just been entertained? What makes the YouTube experience so enjoyable is its…

Corbyn’s Pied-Piper, Sexy Socialism

Socialism is liberalism with a messianic figurehead and a secularized day of judgement. The questions posed by liberalism about economic self-sufficiency, human freedom, and equality are answered by the socialists (and when I say ‘answered’ I mean a verbal answer and not a real answer of substance). Because it appeals with great gusto to the…

My Story, Our Story

Plato is often quoted on the online grapevine as saying that those who tell the stories rule society. Sometimes it’s the world that is ruled although that seems to be a Hopi Indian saying. The real quote seems to be something along the lines of “those who hold the power tell the stories.” From the…

Religion, Faith, Filling Out a Form

Free-thinkers aren’t all they are cracked up to be. They follow rules, day in, and day out, but don’t admit to their slavishness. Their criticisms of organized worship are inconsistent. I am of those who believe in one God, has a faith and who structures their life according to a set of rules, i.e. lives…
