Loss of legitimacy

31-Oct-12

There comes a point when governments lose their legitimacy.  That’s not anything you can define precisely.  I imagine it as the kind of thing that accumulates in bits and pieces until a crisis makes it all unmistakable. The courts are toying with one of those bits and pieces right now.  The Fourth Amendment in the […]

The undecided nation

28-Oct-12

The 2012 election is a gut-check for America.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen the two halves of America so cleanly and neatly divided.  I call it the party of outright moral rebellion against the party of lip-biting and indecision. For a generation the Democrat party has stood for rebellion and up-in-yo’-face irresponsibility.  They represent […]

Possible signs of a brain wave?

06-Oct-12

Imagine the patient lying there on the gurney, wires all over his head, doctors studying the screens searching for any sign of brain activity.  They prod the patient’s feet with a needle.  Nothing.  Loved ones speak and squeeze the hand, still nothing.  The preacher stops by and offers prayer to God.  Still nothing.  The doctors […]
