As if women had no role...

It is as if women had no role before the great liberation. Why, they were the great foundations of which houses rested, the very fineness of which flowers sprung, the very soil of which the great trees found their roots.

Unisex Military Wear

(A post stated concerning the present policy that now military wear between men and women will be unisex was really a miniscule matter when there are so many other weightier matters...)

To which I answer: This just a symptom, Donna, of a huge ideological shift which is very important. A tumor starts with a single cell. It is the eradication of distinction.

the fashionable fads

We are no different in falling for the fashionable fads of the day as the other anti-theist regimes of the past. It is as if Pravda has returned and continues to inform our willing ears. Religion has even largely succumbed. May we return to God as our ideological Center and not to these fads no matter how they promise to liberate us.

"cruel and unusual punishment"

Interesting the picture given of the alleged killer. He is smiling, youthful, happy---this is the picture the media gives us. Why is the media bent on presenting the perpetrators as lovely little well adjusted children?

Now what is this lovely teacher's life worth? Since we bought into the 'cruel and unusual punishment' mantra we have seemed to increasingly gained a cruel and unusual environment.

isn't change good?

My friend laments the change that had come upon the old home town. Someone posted: "Isn't change good?" Are we so used to soundbites that we've forgotten to think? "Isn't change good?" you ask. Well: Fire changes the forest, a tsunami changes coasts, tyrants change liberty? Robespiere, Lenin, Hitler, Amin, the Serpent in the Garden were all changers in this sense. Even a recent politician used 'change' in this noncontemplative way.

Sometime the conversations...

Sometimes the conversations are so good you don't notice the black gum trees in their early red brilliance, the asters, the golden rod, the scarlet swamp maples, the uphills and downhills, the clouds being stretched and seized to strands by the wind. Sometimes the conversations are that good.

On Gov't Shutdown and National Parks

So let's get this straight. The parks are enclosed by barbed wire? There are armed guards keeping you from getting in? Mountains as far as I know are still free things and do not obey the dictates of a shutdown of government. They are under other more noble authority.

pre-game music

Maybe I am becoming increasingly ancient and Neanderthal, but why at a Christian institution of higher learning is the pre-game music for the girl's soccer team rap with gutter lyrics? Why are we molding young women to love a music that is at best fashionable noise that is quite dark? Is there not some Bach that they could play instead?
