Just some plain talk and other things through the lens of an edgy guy.


These are the written expressions of the things that we face from day to day. These are the sentiments of someone who has a conservative and traditional take on all of these things.


Thoughts on life and interviews of those I know and encounter on the way. Sometimes there are things that come out strongly and honestly as we converse in the first person. Do you have an Uncle Bill that sometimes joins you at the Thanksgiving table?

Videos & Adventures

And it is not merely that nobody punishes, but nobody protest. But if you speak of God as a fact, as a thing like a tiger, as a reason for changing one’s conduct, then the modern world will stop you somehow if it can. We are long past talking about whether an unbeliever should be punished for being irreverent. It is now thought irreverent to be a believer .”
