Shooting

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Chicago “leaders” are eager to take a thousand Central American “refugees,” but if these newcomers get settled in the shooting galleries of the city’s south and west sides, they might be eager to go back home, where it’s safer.

Review: MindWar

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

By JOHN WILSON

Friends with sons ask me to recommend good “boy books”: they can’t find enough of them.

One writer I point them to is Andrew Klavan, a masterful suspense novelist who branched out into Young Adult fiction a couple of years ago. His latest is MindWar, the first book in a projected trilogy.

Different

Monday, July 28th, 2014

I believe Christians are called to treat illegal aliens with compassion, but this is not the same as the government opening the border to all comers. I believe church and state have different roles in this crisis. I think the best way we can help poor people from other countries is to encourage their own governments and societies to treat them with justice and provide them with opportunities for advancement where they live now. Yes, America has been and is a place that welcomes immigrants, but this ought to be done legally and in a measured way. We can’t absorb everyone. It is not good for us and for them to simply have them pouring across the border illegally. And yes, I do support immigration reform … and secure borders.

Gums

Friday, July 25th, 2014

It’s hard to fathom, but it looks as if President Obama and the feckless, compromised Europeans are going to do exactly nothing about the Russian shootdown of the Malaysian jetliner–except flap their gums (but not too loudly, lest Vladimir become annoyed).

Having enjoyed Hailstone Mountain so much, I have asked Christine to read me The Year of the Warrior, a book that takes us to the beginning of the series. So far, so good!

Push

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

If we can’t push our religion on them, why do they get to push their “healthy living” gospel on us?

Opinions

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

The rabid reaction to Tony Dungy’s innocuous comment is instructive. People increasingly will be afraid to speak their minds if their opinions depart the slightest bit from the prevailing aggressive liberal orthodoxy. I imagine in a few years that calling people to repent of homosexual practice will be considered a hate crime.
