    The best prediction of a successful marriage is being able to live together and that's especially the case when in a small space. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, however, are already well on their way to passing that test. The future newlyweds are currently living in just 1,300 square feet at Kensington Palace.
  • When Will Machine-like Thinking Prompt Moral Panic?

    In Frank Herbert's "Dune" series (my favorite-science fiction books), he made a bold writerly decision. In a genre famous for robots and computers (particularly in the 1960s), Herbert imagined a futuristic universe with neither. In his telling, some 10,000 years prior to the story of the book, there was galactic revolt called the Butlerian Jihad. This is where I first learned the word "Jihad" -- the Arabic term for Islamic holy war. It can all get fairly nerdy, but the gist is that artificially intelligent computers and androids were banned. In one explanation, the Butlerian Jihad was named after a...

    On March 14, high school students from Parkland, Florida, led a school walkout in favor of gun control. The media have already appointed student witnesses of the horror at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School untouchable moral authorities; their opinions are not to be questioned. But now, the left has found even more sympathetic faces for its agenda: kindergarteners. According to The Wall Street Journal, "Schools are grappling with how to address the event with children as young as 5 years old and with finding ways for children who are too little to be told about school shootings to take part."...

    "Permit the children to come to me; do not hinder them; for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these." - Jesus in Mark 10:14 Throughout the world by God's design - and apart from mankind's fallen and sinful nature - there is nothing more universal than the love of parents for their children and the desire to protect them. It is incumbent upon parents and all citizens to do whatever they can to protect America’s children, teachers and staff in our schools. Tragically, the increase of heinous, immoral and murderous acts perpetrated on our young from the womb...

    Before we discuss violence with guns, I'd like to run a couple of questions by you. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every day nearly 30 Americans die in motor vehicle crashes that involve drunk driving. What kind of restrictions should be placed on automobile ownership? Should there be federal background checks in order for people to obtain a driver's license or purchase a car? The FBI's 2015 Uniform Crime Report shows that nearly three times more people were stabbed or hacked to death than were killed with shotguns and rifles combined. The number of shotgun and...

    While Americans try to cope with the losses in Florida, they're saying goodbye to someone else: America's pastor, Billy Graham. Never has our nation so desperately needed to hear the message of hope and healing that the 99-year-old spent his life sharing. So surely, it's no earthly coincidence that even in Reverend Graham's death, he's forcing us to look in the one place where the answers to this heartbreak lie: up.Torn apart by grief and rage, Americans are frantic to know why our nation is unraveling in one act of violence after another. "We're done with thoughts and prayers!" an...

    Psychology Today ^ | 4/26/26 | Gregg Henriques Ph.D.
    This past academic year we have seen a number of examples of political correctness “gone mad” on college campuses. We have seen many conservative speakers having to cancel their talks, we have seen Ivy League students becoming hysterical about some benign comments about Halloween costumes, and we have seen Emory students freaking out and protesting to the university president because someone scrawled Trump 2016 in chalk on the campus grounds. ...I certainly am not someone who dismisses “political correctness” in its entirety. We should indeed be attentive to issues of power and privilege approach these issues with reflection. However, over...

    Tuesday on Politico's "Off Message" podcast, referring to President Donald Trump’s alleged "shithole" comments, Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez said Trump was the "antithesis of moral leadership." Perez said, "On a basic level, this president is the antithesis of Martin Luther King. And more than that, Dr. King once said, 'To ignore evil is to become an accomplice to it.' So the most recent remarks of the president should come as a surprise to no one." He continued, "When you are referring to people by their race that is the definition of racism." When asked if Trump is a...

    2018 has barely finished dawning, and already, the pharmaceutical industry once more has egg on its face from outrageous price hikes. This time, the culprit is pharmaceutical startup NextSource, which apparently has taken a 40-year-old cancer drug known as lomustine, and ruthlessly hiked its price from $50/pill in 2013, to $768/pill now. In other words, they’ve raised the price of the drug by over 1400% over the past five years. NextSource’s defense for why this has happened has to be read to be believed. CBS News reports that the company’s CEO, Robert DiCrisci, claims that the company set the price based on the...

    There's a great scene in the wonderful 1982 movie "My Favorite Year," which is set in 1954. Peter O'Toole plays a semi-washed-up actor named Alan Swann, famous for swashbuckling roles. For reasons too complicated to explain here, Swann tries to shimmy down the side of a building using a fire hose. He ends up dangling just below a cocktail party on a balcony. Two stockbrokers are chatting when one of them notices Swann swinging below them. "I think Alan Swann is beneath us!" he exclaims. The second stockbroker replies: "Of course he's beneath us. He's an actor." It may be...

    I won’t make any assumptions about how many readers noticed I took a three-month break from column writing. Nevertheless, I want to explain why. I needed the time to finish the first volume of the biggest project of my life as a writer, a commentary on the first five books of the Bible, or what are called the Torah in Hebrew. The commentary is addressed to people of every faith and, especially, to people of no faith.

    Watching "The Crown" in the reign of President Trump is a trip into British nostalgia that leaves an American viewer with mixed feelings about the monarchy, the institution Americans loathed and left behind with a revolution of arms. Nevertheless, the democracy that followed is currently suffering from an overreaching populism with a president trying to fake out a "fake media," and it might benefit from a few lessons in nuance and understatement. "The Crown" is a sophisticated television soap opera that runs against the grain of our troubled time. We watch Queen Elizabeth II grow as a sympathetic figurehead who...

    RUSH: I want to address something here seriously. Nancy Pelosi, predictably, blamed all of this on Trump. Grab sound bite 23. I want you to hear it again. Just 15 seconds. After suggesting that Conyers should, she realized she stepped in it. She realized that’s a very, very controversial thing to do, so she had to try to soften it at the end of the presser. PELOSI: There’s a new day. And the courage of the women coming forward is something that is making a big difference. But also the attitude in the country, which I think some of it...

    The avalanche of sexual harassment claims, with new ones pouring forth daily, leads me to the wisdom of George Washington's observation in his farewell address in 1796: "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. ... And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be managed without religion." You may say, "There you go again, Star. Waving your Bible." But is there a better answer for dealing with this problem? Society, all human life, is guided by rules. The only question before us is: What are the rules...

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” roundtable guest and MSNBC host Joy Reid called it “incredibly disturbing” there were people still supporting Republican Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore, given he is facing allegations that he acted inappropriately and engaged in sexual misconduct in Etowah County, AL decades ago. Reid said, “The fact that this is a calculation, we’re talking about something of such a different degree. You talked about all of the past scandals, you talked about the Monica Lewinsky situation, which was clearly an improper relationship. But we’re talking about children. We’re talking about multiple allegations of the...
  • "Without Morals a Republic CANNOT subsist" -Charles Carroll

    11/04/2017 5:16:55 AM PDT · by stars & stripes forever · 4 replies
    Charles Carroll was the only Roman Catholic to sign the Declaration of Independence. He was the longest living signer of the Declaration. In 1772, Charles Carroll condemned the British Government's oppressive taxes by writing in the Maryland Gazette under the pseudonym "First Citizen." When his identity became known, the British loyalist Daniel Dulany the Younger wrote mean-spirited personal ad-hominem attacks against Charles Carroll, ridiculing him. Charles Carroll's statesman-like response was to explain that because Dulany engaged in "virulent invective and illiberal abuse, we may fairly presume, that arguments are either wanting, or that ignorance or incapacity know not how to...
