    President Trump Rescinds Federal Protections For Transgender Students

    In spite of claims during his campaign that he would protect the LGBTQ population, President Trump has just done what many consider to be the very opposite: he has lifted the federal protections that were in place to protect transgender students in schools.

    Obviously, the obviously obvious stories are as boring as heaven. They do not excite the spirit but comfort the ego.

    The Story Of Truth & Lie

    The Story Of Truth & Lie

    I often find myself fascinated with the intricacies of how we perceive the truth; how we are willing to accept the truth or reject it in order to give ourselves peace of mind when confronted with inconvenient realities. It seems we as a society have become experts (whether it be consciously or subconsciously) in deconstructing what we know are factual truths and then reconstructing them to be more appropriate, more righteous, and even more politically correct. We perform mental gymnastics; accepting certain aspects of a factual reality, while omitting or outright rejecting other aspects of that same reality in order to drive home a point we want to make.

    The Holocaust: Where Are the Bodies?

    The Holocaust: Where Are the Bodies?

    Skeptics of the Holocaust ask a question most people don’t know the answer to: what happened to the bodies? If between 6 and 11 million people were slaughtered, where are the millions of bodies? The truth is that most were destroyed. The most evidence that remains from the Holocaust comes from the German invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941-42, and the final weeks of the European war in 1945. These were the times when the Germans were in a hurry and got sloppy.

    The Other Side of the Pond

    The Other Side of the Pond

    It’s not the hair which worries me. It’s rather beautiful in a way - a candy floss creation of sweeping whirls and razor edges, re-created every day. It must take hours. It’s not the complexion either - that brilliant tangerine so loud it makes you want to reach for a pair of shades. No - I can cope with all that. And I’m not worried by the cupid’s bow mouth, or that curiously phallic thing he does with a pointed finger.
