Pro-Lifers, We Still Have Our Work Cut Out For Us

Last year, I wrote about revelations from our English cousins across the pond that various hospitals on the island country had taken a central plot line from The Matrix a bit too close to heart, having harvesting the bodies of the post-abortive unborn for energy. I also remarked that, while the U.S. continues to do its own […]

One Cell Is All It Takes

Life begins with one cell. That sentence shouldn’t be controversial, or otherwise troublesome. After all, no serious person would gaze at a single bacterium on a microscope slide moving from here to there by way of a polar flagellum–a masterwork of biological engineering–and conclude they weren’t witnessing the actions of a living organism. And yet, […]

But Wait, There’s More!

I know how just about everyone loves recaps of State of the Union addresses, so once again this year I thought I’d offer a few points about it, in no particular order: Where last year the recurring theme of the President’s address was his intention to circumvent a (depending who you ask) regrettably gridlocked Congress through […]

Devil In The Details

With all the regularity of a Swiss watch, we find ourselves facing another case of 11th hour brinkmanship as Congress again deliberates a contentious omnibus spending bill–a massive 1,600 page measure that would fund all discretionary programs through 2015 (an additional continuing resolution would fund Homeland Security through February). Just as these recurrent arm-twisting sessions […]

Money-No-Object Governance

“And to preserve [people’s] independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude.”  –Thomas Jefferson With every debt milestone we bound over, it’s interesting to turn a fleeting gaze backwards to elicit the attitudes our national forefathers possessed regarding […]

The Tyranny Of Modern Feelings

The old adage goes that “misery loves company”. In light of the current meanderings of thought to be found in social media and modern culture at large, if I were to append a corollary to this truism, it would be that “hurt feelings exert their own gravity”. It is no longer enough that one should […]

I-591 Does Not Weaken Current State Gun Laws

A quick note regarding I-591, in particular its provision prohibiting state agencies from requiring a background check on the recipient of a firearm unless a “uniform national standard” is required. Those against I-591 have latched on to this provision, in part, on the belief that should it pass, I-591 would “roll back Washington’s existing–and already inadequate– […]

I-594: Background Check “Loopholes”? Much Ado About Nothing

This is the second post in a three-part series on I-594, a Washington State ballot initiative that would require background checks on all state gun sales and transfers. The first post delved into commentary regarding several implications of the proposed law, and can be found here. Later this week, part three will cover various philosophical aspects […]
