Begotten

A Tale of Three Fathers by baldilocks Months back, I was talking with my American dad about Jesus the Christ.

I am happy to have it … Continue reading Begotten

My Saturday

Exciting! by baldilocks It’s one of those days when the time got away from me. I woke up a little later than usual but full of energy.

Last Days of the European Christmas Markets

by baldilocks Mark Steyn on the terror attack at the Christmas Market in Strasbourg, France: [I]t is now taken for granted that Christmas markets across Europe have to be held behind the ugly throttling barriers of "security" - which as we saw yesterday are, ultimately, never secure. Because we [sic] won't put up security barriers … Continue reading Last Days of the European Christmas Markets

Freedom From Religion (UPDATED)

On which the Bill of Rights is based by baldilocks My cousin Dyllan and I are very much alike and get along very well.

Secret Weapon

by baldilocks Keeping a secret, that is, keeping one's mouth shut about what you are doing and accomplishing -- especially when there are people who would love nothing better than to see you fail -- is nearly a lost art, and there are many who don't understand the value of it, especially in the age … Continue reading Secret Weapon

But Will They Listen?

by baldilocks Public Tells House Dems — Don't Waste Time Investigating Trump: IBD/TIPP Poll The public wants the new Congress to focus on three areas when it convenes next year: health care costs, immigration, and jobs.

General Locusts

A Tad Rant-ish About Affirmative Action

by baldilocks This morning on Facebook, one of my friends shared a status about Wangari Maathai (1940-2011), who was the first African woman to receive a Nobel (Peace) Prize.

Troll-Feeding and You

by baldilocks I was just thinking about trolls; rather fondly, in fact. There are very few on my Facebook page, because I run a tight ship there. I don't want my parents, nieces and nephews rushing in to defend me when some imbecile insults me, so, while my page is set for anyone to read, … Continue reading Troll-Feeding and You

Florida Woman

He keeps on doing what he … Continue reading Trump Refuses to Yield
