Je ne suis pas Charlie Hebdo

It is has been two years since the French offices at magazine publisher Charlie Hebdo was attacked by two Islamic terrorists, killing 12 people. “Je suis Charlie” (“I am Charlie”) was the chant shortly afterward, as thousands of people stood in symbolic solidarity with the “rag that has nothing to…


Racism America

When I was growing up in a small town in Eastern Colorado, I had no idea what racism meant. Oh, it was not as if we did not read and learn about the Civil War and the story about black men being enslaved by white men, and Martin Luther King…


An Islamic State: Yeah, So?

This morning I was thinking about a quote I saw posted by a news feed I receive every morning.  It read, “We will win because Americans don’t realize…we do not need to defeat you militarily; we only need to fight long enough for you to defeat yourself by quitting.” The…


Christmas Means Jesus Lied

Two thousand and sixteen years ago — add one year for each year this article remains posted after publication and another Christmas passes — Jesus Christ hung on a Roman cross to pay the sin debt owed to God. The last thing Jesus said, before bowing his head and giving…

Let the Tomfoolery Commence

Surprise, surprise, surprise, Donald Trump has won the Presidential election and that after months of absolute certainty by many, including myself, that the pathological liar, Hillary Clinton, would win it all. Thank God those of us who were so sure of ourselves were absolutely wrong. That is not to say…


Plan B Post-Election

Hillary Rodham Clinton, complete with all her felonious activities throughout the years, will be the next President of the United States. It is something I have been predicting since 2014, when it was first speculated that she would enter the race. The prediction had nothing to do with some kind…


Evolution is True After All

In the past couple of days, I have had some fairly interesting exchanges with those who are big proponents of the theory of evolution. As is usually the case, the discussions were prefaced by attacks upon the Bible. The atheistic ilk is never satisfied until they have repeated the serpentine…


Back to Screwal 2016-17

Way back when, in what seems like another world, there was the day when I went back to school at about this time of year. The school year commenced the day after Labor Day, in September, and ended sometime around the middle of May. For several reasons, school at that…
