A Case of Changing Identity

With the current trend these days to make up random nonsense, and then change one’s identity to it, I’ve decided to give it a try. While some may pretend to be another gender or race, others get more imaginative as they change species altogether. I have decided to take this blue pill to a different…

In Defense of Genocide

Stick with me until the end, people. I’m going somewhere with this. There is a demographic in our nation that is becoming a growing problem, and they need to go away. Permanently. This demographic has been scientifically proven to be less developed mentally and physically than you or I. I can almost guarantee that none…

Rules

I’m not Rambo. I’m not a SEAL or a former Delta Force operator. I don’t have the secret to surviving a mass shooting. You can find all of those people online easily. I’m just a civilian who used to carry a gun for a living as a regular infantryman, so I don’t have a list…

What They Need To Do

Stop me if you’ve heard this one… The scene is a random, totally-not-made-up work environment. This completely legitimate company is called “Acme Anvil Distributors, Inc.” A co-worker (obviously not you or me) is moaning and complaining about a thing, a condition, a person, etc, at said anvil distributing facility. The conversation goes in phases, with…

Fitness: A Christian Perpsective

In a recent conversation with family, I was discussing the differences between people who exercise and those who don’t. Perhaps the venom in my voice was higher than usual, and maybe I had ranted about this particular topic on more than one occasion (I definitely had), because the next question that was posed was, “Why…

My Case Against ‘Die Hard’ As A Christmas Movie…

There are two types of people;  1. Those who are aware that “Die Hard”, while a great American film, is not a Christmas movie, and 2. Little babies who go poo-poo in their diapers. You know who you are. Why is Die Hard NOT a Christmas movie? After all, it takes place during a Christmas…

So Men On TV Are Dumb. So What?

I’ve heard that there are two typical methods of dealing with problems in our society. Take racism for example. In a group of people plagued with such a problem, Method 1 is to change the individual man himself. Through proper parenting and education, let each person know how racism hurts us as a nation, and…

I’m A Terrible Person, And Here’s Proof

Amateur philosophy time, folks. In a podcast called “The Art of Manliness,” sociologists Bradley Campbell and Jason Manning describe two basic types of worldviews as Honor Cultures and Dignity Cultures. They were outlining why “microaggressions” are such a dominant part of our nation’s colleges, but this part is what stuck with me. Basically, a Dignity…

Of Bunnies And Men

In my tween years, which was before the term “tween” had massacred our glorious English language, I read a book by one of my favorite authors, Gary Paulson. It was entitled The Boy Who Owned The School, and it detailed the life of teenager Jacob Freisten as he simpered and wussed his way through the…

A Legitimate Use For Hipsters

I had an existential moment over Thanksgiving weekend. I visited my cousin’s apartment, and realized that he is, in fact, Nash Bridges in skinny jeans. The place was a glorious collection of eclectic instruments, photographs, furniture, and a bunch of other weird crap I don’t have a name for. I’m pretty sure there were tribal…

Reaction to the Reactions to Paris

As my fellow Americans have had time to process the tragic events in Paris, I peruse the social media and internets to constantly find an interesting common denominator: Disbelief.  Complete, utter disbelief.   “I just don’t understand how a human being can do that to another one of God’s creatures?” “Haven’t we evolved above all…
