There ain't no such thing as a free lunch. Wise words, popularized by Robert Heinlein in The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. You have to pay for your lunch somehow. Just so, someone has to pay for medical care. Medical education and training costs money. The consumables used such as swabs, [...]

Times are Changing

For this article, I will do something that I most likely will not do again. I will link to a CNN article. There are two reasons why I will provide this link. First, for the context. On Wednesday, January 11, President-Elect Donald Trump held a press conference. For all the policy and other content, it became known for Trump's interaction [...]

The King is dead!

January 14th, 2017|0 Comments

This week marks the final days of 8 years under President Obama and I want to take this moment to look back over where we have been so we can see where we are going. 8 years ago we were seeing Liberals decry how terrible the economy was under Bush the Younger. And though it wasn't terrible it certainly was [...]

Truth

January 13th, 2017|4 Comments

One of our other writers posted on Truth yesterday, and it is worth your time. I want to delve into one aspect he raised. We live in a world that has forgotten what truth is. I suppose that is not entirely correct, as the real issue is that folks have forgotten the difference between objective and subjective truth. They have [...]

The Wrath of the Awakened Saxon

January 13th, 2017|3 Comments

by Rudyard Kipling It was not part of their blood, It came to them very late, With long arrears to make good, When the Saxon began to hate. They were not easily moved, They were icy -- willing to wait Till every count should be proved, Ere the Saxon began to hate. Their voices were even and low. Their eyes [...]

Truth, or… What?

January 12th, 2017|1 Comment

"What is truth"- Pontius Pilate Truth is important. When you lose the importance of truth you get some strange things, like men claiming to be women. Or young women claiming to be cats. Social constructivist theory holds that truth is constructed by social processes. Barf. We do not currently have the technology to turn a man into a woman. In my opinion, that [...]

The Country Life

January 12th, 2017|17 Comments

And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and [...]

Beast Life – The Dumbbell Press

January 11th, 2017|0 Comments

This exercise is a great supplement for the bench press. It will hit all the weaker support muscles that go into the bench because there isn’t the bar there for balance. Choose a flat bench. Dead lift the dumbbells up off the floor, and rotate them to where one end is resting on your thigh. Now sit down while keeping [...]

Western Canon: The Epic of Gilgamesh

January 10th, 2017|0 Comments

Here we can see the Sun God running late for his Crossfit class, and that jerk Chaos Monster is blocking the way and taunting him. There is something about this epic, a tale so old that we don't have the full thing, and that is just an echo of even older stories, but still it draws interest and [...]

The Ploughman – A Sermon by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

January 8th, 2017|0 Comments

"Doth the plowman plow all day to sow?"—Isaiah 28:24. UNLESS they are cultivated, fields yield us nothing but briars and thistles. In this we may see ourselves. Unless the great Husbandman shall till us by his grace, we shall produce nothing that is good, but everything that is evil. If one of these days I shall hear that a country [...]

There are times when life seems grim. The future dark. There are many events occurring now that could cause one to wonder what kind of future we can have with the corrupt in power, barbarians at the gates, and amoral snowflakes that make up the next generation crying over every perceived slight. But things have turned, and its important to [...]

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that [...]
