Planned Parenthood – No surprises.

July 21, 2015 at 2:31 pm

I am not at all interested in Planned Parenthood’s selling of children’s body parts. It’s not surprising that a huge corporation which thinks murdering children is a moral right would seek to profit from their remains.

What is surprising is that I have not seen one single liberal, out of all my friends, speak out against this. I know that many of you are privately mortified by the act of abortion. Yet, there seems to be no line that PP could cross that could make you speak out against it.

Does no moral compass remain on the left? Do you not see how supporting abortion undermines every single position you could hope to win my support on? This is how liberals appear to the rest of the world:

Save the whales! Who cares about the babies.
Black lives matter! Unless they’re still in the womb.
Global warming/cooling/change! Save the humans so we can kill the humans.
End the death penalty! Except for unwanted babies.
Universal health care! Infanticide costs should be shared.
Help the poor! By killing them before they’re born.

Until liberals join the right side of history and join us in calling for an end to abortion, no moral appeal you could possibly make will hold any weight with any thinking person in the world.

What dreams are these?

October 30, 2012 at 11:06 pm

We, each and every one of us, hold a dream in our hearts. Some burn brightly, some smolder and flicker like embers from an old campfire. But make no mistake, every man, woman, and child you meet holds within their breast a dream of what may be.

We live our lives in pursuit of those dreams. Those dreams which will take us higher, further, faster, and higher than we’ve ever been. These dreams are the spark that makes our engines go. They keep us warm at night when the chilling realities of this world come to haunt us. These are the dreams that make mice into warriors and provide the catalyst for all great actions. Our dreams are us, perfected.

Why, then, do we not pursue these with greater passion and focus? Why do we idle through our days and coast through our evenings, lulled into sleepwalking for weeks upon end? We know there exists something greater than what we are living, so why don’t we seize it?

Simply put, there are three reasons why people do not live their lives in pursuit of their visions.

They don’t know what they want. Their vision is unclear and unfocused.
They don’t believe they can. They’ve been conditioned to believe that success is for others.
They don’t know how. They don’t know the steps that will take them from where they are to where they want to be.

How Bad Do You Want It?

October 26, 2012 at 1:34 am

One of my favorite stories, told over inspiring footage. It didn’t originate with Eric Thomas, the Hip Hop Preacher, but he tells it better than anyone else.

Too many people are afraid to listen to what they term, “motivational stuff”. They’re afraid of admitting they have a greater dream. I say that’s nonsense. Listen to it. Study it. Steep yourself in it.

It may not change the way you act today, or tomorrow, or even the next day. But over time, it will contribute to your growth. Just as eating good food and exercising won’t make you a beast overnight, it will, in time, produce a positive change in you. First the mind changes, then everything else.

Race of the Indefensibles

October 26, 2012 at 1:16 am

This election, more than any I’ve seen, seems to be a race between the indefensibles.

Few Republicans, and no conservatives, can justify their vote without mentioning Obama.

Few Democrats can mount a defense of Obama that doesn’t focus upon Romney.

I have been inundated by well intentioned, intelligent people urging me to vote for the lesser of the two evils. It’s a compelling argument when you study this administrations actions over the last four years. I have no doubt that, over the next four years, Mitt Romney would be a far better president than Barack Obama.


The lesser of two evils?

Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. The lesser of two evils?

The Republican party, on a national level, has marginalized, and even abused conservatives over the last four years, culminating with their shameful actions in Florida this August. Will a win for Romney signal the end of the conservative influence in the GOP? If so, I would argue that this would be more harmful to America in the long run than even four more years of President Obama.

I refuse to toe the line for a party that has abandoned its moral center. If one party wants to feed Christians to the wolves and the other wants to starve them to death, will you really insist that I vote for the “less painful” of the two? The analogy may be extreme, but the question remains, has the Republican party abandoned conservatives, or this a momentary lapse of judgement?

The Fix Anything Tool Bag

October 4, 2012 at 3:38 pm

What I Carry.

Much of my life revolves around fixing things for other people. One of the biggest frustrations you will find is knowing you have exactly the right tool for the job, but……it’s not with you. You’ve been there, right?

Well, a couple of years ago, I started trying to figure out exactly what the optimal blend of tools were for a traveling tool bag. These were my rules:

•High quality. It’s not worth my time to mess with sub-par tools.

•Compact. I only wanted to carry one bag, so space was at a premium.

•Flexible. Since I couldn’t carry every tool with me, I needed to get as much done as possible with what I did carry.

•Affordable. I know that this sometimes runs counter to rule #1, but anything outlandishly expensive was off my list.

That’s it! And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. Everything here will fit into the bag that starts off the list. It’s heavy, but I promise you can fix 90% of everything that’s thrown your way with just the contents of this kit.


Do it all with the Fix Anything Tool Bag

50 Practical Things To Teach Your Kids

September 6, 2012 at 8:09 pm

I pulled into a gas station the other day and saw a young woman struggling to air up her tire.  She hadn’t turned the compressor on, and didn’t realize that the air she heard was actually air leaving her already low tire.  After offering a bit of modest advice, I moved on with my day, but the incident stayed with me.

I started to wonder about my own children.  Had I taught them enough?  Would they know how to air up a tire someday? What other very practical things would they need to do as young adults?  As my wife and I discussed these questions, I started jotting down notes.  This is the list we arrived at.  As time goes on, I’d like to flesh it out with short how-to’s, or at least links to other people’s guides.

Take a look!  Did we miss anything?
