News is not good!

23 Aug 21   “See skulking Truth, to her old cavern fled,Mountains of casuistry heaped o’er her head!Philosophy, that leaned on Heaven before,Shrinks to her ‘second cause,’ and is no more.Physic of Metaphysic begs defense,And Metaphysic calls for aid on Sense!See Mystery to Mathematics fly!In-vain they gaze, turn giddy, rave, and die!Religion, blushing, veils her […]

“Extemists” to the Rescue!

4 Aug 21   “A casual stroll through a lunatic asylum will convince you that ‘faith’ proves nothing.”   Friedrich Nietzsche   “Extremists” to the rescue!   In promoting the concept of hot ranges, I often put it this way:   “Range Safety” is correctly defined as, “Those reasonable precautions we take to reduce risk, […]

Slaves Indeed!

2 Apr 21   “My faith in God is strong, but my faith in our ‘leadership’ is weak”   Abraham Lewis   In a cynical gesture to his Marxist base, JRB has announced that the current pestilence of “gun violence” infesting virtually all our metro areas, particularly those with Democrat mayors, is all caused by […]
