Another MacGyver Rings Down the Curtain

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen 

Television and movie producers have been criticized by their frequent "reboots" of existing material, and some people wonder if they are out of ideas. (Why reboot? The established meaning is to reload an electronic device with the existing material.) Some try to keep to the spirit of the original, but others only have a superficial resemblance to what is being remade. In this case, MacGyver 2016.

The reboot of MacGyver bit the dust. While there are official reasons, I suggest other factors that Hollywood elitists ignore that also contributed.

The first name of the character in the original series, Angus, was kept a secret until the seventh season. May was well use it from the get-go in the new one since the secret is out. For quite a while, I expected Richard Dean Anderson to appear as Mac's father, but Anderson didn't like the new version and refused. Several character names from before were used in the reboot, but the characters were usually quite different. The Phoenix Foundation was also used as the organizations each Angus worked for.

Special Mentions

Regular cast members at the end include Lucas Till, Tristin Mays, Justin Hires (these three were in the series from the beginning), and Levy Tran (joined in season three). They do their jobs well when they have good material and directing.

David Dastmalchian played the psychotic Murdoc, and he did his job extremely well with a mix of charisma and evil that made Murdoc someone to be feared. 

Meredith Eaton joined as Matty Webber in the first season. She was originally the hardnosed boss, but her character developed and there was a balance of caring for the team and getting the job done. Also, Meredith is a dwarf. What I liked is that nobody made a deal about it. Although unrealistic, there were no jabs at her size, but I appreciated the fact that the writers and producers just let her be a person. Would that there was more of this in movies, television, and society in general instead of trumpeting that they hired someone of a certain sexual preference, gender dysphoria, ethnicity, skin color, or whatever. Just let them play their parts.

Late to the party was Henry Ian Cusick, who portrayed Russ Taylor, a spoiled rich guy and demanding owner of the company. He, too, became a valuable asset to the team and showed excellent acting skills.

Why it was Canceled

April 30, 2021 was the final show. Well, the ratings were dwindling, and that's what happens. Then there's the "real" reason it was canceled, supposedly providing information that is less commonly available. Digging deeper, I learned a new word: showrunner, which is a special kind of executive producer. Peter Lenkov, the showrunner for MacGyver and Magnum P.I. who was at the helm for several seasons, was fired for making the work environment toxic. But even with a new showrunner, ratings continued to fade.

Other Things to Consider

There seemed to be a revolving door for actors, especially the females. Reign Edwards, who played Leanna Martin, was a part of the team and then disappeared (she was eventually written out as having been killed in a CIA operation). Isabel Lucas was Samantha Cage, but chose to leave. At least her character survived an attempted assassination. Remember Pete Thornton, Mac's boss in the original series? The new show had Patricia Thornton (see what they did there?), played by Sandrine Holt, who left the show in the first season. It turns out she was one of the bad guys all along, which struck me as bad writing.

George Eads was Jack Dalton, Mac's friend. This character was borrowed from the original series, and was a strong part of the new series into the third season. George had some problems with the producers and wanted out of his contract. He also had a problem with CSI after fifteen (!) years.

People leave shows, it's a fact of life for that industry. It struck this child that MacGyver had quite a few in a relatively short time. That makes it difficult to develop storylines and have character development, and I thought that the series was a bit convoluted.

Sometimes it seems that there's a little extra beyond the acting; the actors and people behind the scenes seem to like each other and doing the show. They also struck me as growing tired and going through the motions. Although it seemed that Russ Tayler, the new boss of boss Mattie, added some spark, but the writing and directing didn't let him shine. Even so, it was probably too little, too late.

If any of y'all watched the show Scorpion, about a group of super geniuses saving all or parts of the world, there were writing similarities that wore thin. (Robert Patrick was great as the Scorpion team's handler.) Personal dramas, one thing leads to another as things go from bad to worse to heroic save, and the impossible happen. There were times in both shows that I had to turn my suspension of disbelief up to eleven and hope the next episode (of either MacGyver or Scorpion) wouldn't be so outrageous.

I didn't know that I was watching the series finale, it seemed like a season finale instead. (But then, the writers had to make adjustments to the last show because they were taken off guard.) I was tolerating the leftist virtue signaling since I liked the characters and the show was still reasonably entertaining. Riley was using her hacking skills (which originally landed her in jail, later working for the Phoenix Foundation) and teaching other wayward girls — except one, who identified as "non-binary". That's herd mentality science denial, old son.

They also openly endorsed the Marxist organization Black Lives Matter and suddenly made a big deal about blackness. Further, they did the Black Panther movie's Wakanda Salute, something made for a movie but has been liberated for the leftist revolution "culture". Indeed, people can be harassed for not complying with this nonsense.

The villains of nanobot experimentation and a planned saturation of citizens (for purposes of control) in the final episode was the United States government. If I want anti-American sentiment, I'll watch mainstream fake news media, you savvy that?

Deserved to be Canceled?

I discussed several reasons that the reboot of MacGyver was canceled. Low ratings may have been brought on by lackluster writing, disjointed storylines by cast members leaving, and other reasons. However, the leftist virtue signaling was pushing me away; when the last episode aired (again, I thought it was the season finale and not the series finale), I was seriously considering dropping the show from my watchlist.

Keep your wokeness tyranny to yourselves. I don't give a flying — I mean, I'm not interested in your ideology, television and movie producers. There are a few million people who are not into elitist leftist tactics and do not hate the United States. The producers may have been alienating their viewers for many reasons, including the show's growing political and cultural agendas. It was happening to me. Fortunately, I can stream the classics with Richard Dean Anderson.

Smoking that Doobie, Brother

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Many countries, especially on the western side of the Atlantic, have decriminalized cannabis (weed, pot, doobies, grass, smoke, reefer, whatever) and legalized it for medical use. Many places have made recreational use legal as well. Even where illegal, enforcement of laws is often sporadic.

Cannabis is becoming legal in many places. However, there are scientific and other facts that are coming out that indicate legalization is a bad idea.

And there was great rejoicing among pot smokers. In fact, here in not-all-that-far-upstate New York, cops don't care. Polly Pothead in the apartment next door was chugging away so much, the smoke could be seen not only in the hallway, but seeped into our own apartment. Police did nothing. That was before it was legal, but her usage is the same as before; smoking wacky tobaccy just wasn't important enough to enforce the law. Also, she's a terrible conversationalist.

One article I found in my research mentioned that Mary Jane was originally illegal because it is harmful. (Oh, come on! Don't get a burr under your saddle. You know it's true. People who argue for its medical and recreational use cite dubious sources almost as much as a village atheist cites other atheists that have "evidence" against creation science. If nothing else, our Creator didn't design us to inhale burning leaves.) Something that was considered harmful is now legalized because governments see money in it.

People are sold a bill of goods about how marilizing legajuana will boost the economy and provide massive tax revenues. That isn't working out nearly as well as they expected. The underground economy, like the Democrat Party, doesn't want the swamp drained. That is, dealers are used to doing sneaky stuff and not paying taxes, and it's cheaper to get it from Jake the Snake than from Ye Olde Cannabis Emporium, you savvy?

Comparisons are made between grass and alcohol, as may be expected. These are not valid, however, despite some credible points that are raised  —

I'm going to change horses in midstream. Let's see what happens. When I say smoker, I'll be referring to a cannabis user. Drinker refers to alcohol, whether, beer, wine, spirits, or whatever.

  • You can't drive stoned, Sebastian. Impaired driving is a problem whatever the cause, and crying, "But it's legal now!" won't cut it.
  • Workplaces have a right to prohibit the use of loco weed just like alcohol; you can't show up to work while stoned. I sure don't want a buzzed plumber or surgeon taking care of my needs. I lack belief that anyone else would want to pay a stoner for important work.
  • People pushing to make marijuana legal appeal to medicinal use. But like evolutionists, they acted like their approach is the only approach, citing other biased advocates for support. The formulas for recreational and medicinal usages are different.
  • Standardization of pot is a crapshoot. A drinker in the formerly United States knows that there are standards, and the alcohol content is on the label somewhere, usually hovering around five percent for beer.
  • Drinking and smoking (which includes tobacco) are bad for young people. They are still developing, and those things cause permanent damage.

On a side note, I remember being a cashier and ringing up single packs of cigarettes for fifty cents each, and $4.35 USD for a carton of ten. In many places, they are about ten dollars a pack. Most of that is taxes. I reckon that putting warning labels on the package that they're harmful to your health makes it okay to subsidize and tax something that is harmful, huh?

When I posted "Cannabis and the Christian", a surprising number of religious folks argued that they have the "right" to have it, and it should be legal. Some even had complaints that resembled the abortion proponent who says, "My body, my choice". I believe they simply wanted to get high and made excuses to be a stoner while professing to be a Christian. This is taking Christian liberty far beyond what God intended. Look up what the Bible says about drunkenness and apply the principle to pot and other mind-altering substances.

There have been many problems with legalizing marijuana. Interesting how certain scientific facts as well as other contradictions to the claims of pot advocates are in abundance, but the doobie-smoking public is unknowing or uncaring.

God created bodies for health. One should expect problems when policies compromise health for pleasure and money.

It wasn’t that long ago that marijuana (now called cannabis after its genus name Cannabis sativa) was considered bad. It was an illegal drug, considered a gateway drug to harder, more addictive drugs like heroin. Private growers reminiscent of the old “moonshiners” in the days of Prohibition made it available, and drug smugglers ensured ample supplies made it past border guards. Some argued that legalization would remove the incentives for smuggling; then governments could regulate it and tax it.

Powerful special interest groups have been pushing for decriminalization first, then outright legalization next. Their success is to the point where many states have not only legalized it, but are promoting it. Users claim it is harmless and gives them pleasurable feelings. And there’s big money involved; governments enjoy the growing tax revenues.

Silencing President Trump and Me

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

This article is going to cover a few shocking points that should be of concern to people who value free speech. Donald Trump and I are best buddies — yeah, like he knows that I even exist. But we do have a few things in common regarding censorship.

I have said for years there are striking similarities between leftists and atheists. What is happening to Trump parallels the experiences Christians.
Made at PhotoFunia

I was riding the Fakebook trail one night in March of 2013 when I was suddenly booted. Huh? They demanded proof of my age! After complying, I was told, 

Upon investigation, we have determined that you are ineligible to use Facebook. You can view our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities at the following address: https://www.facebook.com/terms.php

Unfortunately, for safety and security reasons, we cannot provide additional information as to why your account was disabled. This decision is final.

Thanks for your understanding

Security reasons? Oh, please!

Upon searching, this has happened to other people as well. They did not receive explanations or reinstatement, either. I thought it was a fluke, so I changed the name on an auxiliary account to my real name and created a new one. Terminated again. Lather, rinse, repeat, including a name under Sorrenson Roberts.

Pay attention now: each account was used in discussions on a certain atheopathic Page, but my other accounts that have lasted for years were not used there and still exist. My reluctant conclusion (I am condensing this) is that Facebook has atheists in power, or the atheopaths on that Page knew someone in power who could silence me. My other accounts are doing fine. Interestingly, my Cowboy Bob Sorensen author Page is still standing.

By the way, apparently atheism is a religion according to Fakebook (and also in reality) and must be protected by them. Curtis was not told which of their community double-standards he violated, so it had to be religion. This has happened to others as well:

Used under federal Fair Use provisions for educational purposes

President Donald J. Trump was deplatformed by Fakebook and Twitface. As far as leftists are concerned, he is a lame duck. But no, they want to destroy him under the excuse that he "incited violence". That's a lie. Leftists want to destroy him! This is evinced in many ways, including the attempt at another baseless impeachment.

They also want to destroy his supporters as well. Since I wrote this article (which also has supporting links), there are already reports of punishing Republicans and Conservatives. Take a look at this example of absurdity. By being a public figure who is a while male, Christian, biblical creationist, Conservative, heterosexual, I have probably made myself unemployable. Because leftist reasons and stuff.

Christians and Conservatives have been, and are being, deplatformed frequently. That's why alternatives are springing up.

There are many ways to silence an opponent. While the Biden-Harris death squads cannot come to my door and put a bullet in my head yet, leftists and other totalitarians use other things. In the past, it was to control the media and communications. Since the left controls the mainstream media, they attempt to shut down other news outlets and alternative social media, such as Parler.

In astonishing levels of incoherent "logic", feral evolutionists attacked me because of my political views. Red herring, ad hominem, straw man — I've had them all mixed together. This is because they could not refute the creation science articles that I posted.

Another tactic is infiltration, pretending to be a person or group that you hate. The monoliths that were cropping up were fun (I hope there are more in the future), but one was destroyed by a mob that, I believe, nobody in their right unbigoted mind would think is actual Trump supporters or Christians (see this clip, which is supposed to begin at 10 min. 38 sec. after you press the play button). In my own experience, atheists have pretended to be Christians and even creationists for the sake of arguing and promoting evolutionism. It's who they are and what they do, whether attacking political or Christian opponents. 

If leftists, atheists, evolutionists, and others had the truth on their side, would they need to resort to lies, fraud, violence, and silencing the opposition? Not hardly! And don't try to tell me that there is not a spiritual component to all of this: many atheists and evolutionists are leftists.

A simpler method is to simply negate what the other side has to say. "Fact checkers" have lied about the evidence. Other times, they simply appeal to someone who is popular as a false authority that agrees with their biases. Chris Plante says that the leftist media is so powerful that they can simply refuse to report on a story and pretend the truth doesn't exist.

There is something I had forgotten and received important reminders: no matter who is in authority, whether a real or illegitimate President, whether real or cheated elections, God is in ultimate authority. We must trust him. Sure, God works through people to accomplish his will, but he is ultimately in charge. All world leaders will ultimately have to stand before him, and his judgment is righteous and unfailing.

I have been saying for years that the tactics of the left bear a striking similarity to what happens to Christians and creationists by atheists and evolutionists. I know I sound like Mayor Maywho, "Did anyone listen to me? No!", but the facts are readily apparent. This should be more obvious in my planned Question Evolution Day article on February 12.

"Planet of the Humans" and Personal Objectivity

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen 

When I heard about the video Planet of the Humans that was released free to the public, I had to check myself for consistency and minimize my personal hypocrisy. This movie challenged me to put things I've learned into practice.


This movie was surprising on several levels, and challenged me to see if I could remain consistent. There were some interesting things to learn about the love of money in the green movement.

Could I view this film honestly and objectively, putting my personal feelings aside? For that matter, could I accurately utilize the logic and critical thinking that I've been learning and teaching for several years? After all, far too many people (especially atheists and leftists) "think" with their emotions. The genetic fallacy involves rejecting something simply because of its source:



A high standard to set is to consider information and possibly learn something despite where it originated. (This can be adjusted when the source is demonstrably biased and unreliable: There's no point in seeking truth about Donald Trump from the New York Times or CNN, nor is accuracy about creation science to be found at Wikipedia or from Clinton Richard Dawins.) Planet of the Humans was sponsored by Michael Moore.

This maker of documentaries is a hardcore leftist. Moore has praised Cuban healthcare, told numerous falsehoods about George W. Bush and the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, has railed against Donald Trump, and done other things to be obstreperous and obnoxious. It was not until the end credits that I realized that Michael was not the maker of the film, which was written, produced, and directed by environmentalist Jeff Gibbs. Moore is the executive producer and distributor.

It was startling to learn that leftists attacked the film and even wanted it censored for supposedly uncovering falsehoods that are believed by the green energy environmental extremists. This really got my attention and brought up another personal consideration. Specifically, was I going to watch it because it might confirm my biases? While that motive is not always wrong, such thinking can be a prison for oneself. 

There are many things I've learned about environmental leftists, so when I saw the film, I was not surprised to have some of my knowledge confirmed. There were also some very interesting points made about the double standards and even outright deceptions of the green movement that were surprising. However, they seemed real enough and without the extreme emotional manipulation of those folks. Gibbs had some strong words against the "worst" of capitalism, which fits with the socialist message that Moore as promoted many times in the past. Was the evidence presented factual and accurate? That will be up to people who can honestly examine the material for refutation or affirmation.

While the green movement seems to be more interested in making money and gaining political power than in promoting is unrealistic and unsustainable goals, that is what we can expect from people who do not have a biblical worldview. Jeff Gibbs seems to have leftist leanings along with Michael Moore, and do not seem to have room for the Creator in their beliefs. Yes, those of us who are Christians are supposed to care about the environment because we are stewards of God's creation.

There was a bit of profanity in Planet of the Humans and an obviously secular view. Socialism was minimal, and I did not see any of the Orange Man Bad mantra of the left. I think I kept a balance of healthy skepticism and willingness to learn, and if other people watch it, I hope you can do the same. It was not easy to refrain from rejecting a Moore-backed film out of hand, though. Even so, I suggest that others watch Planet of the Humans and see how the worldview of Jeff Gibbs plays out. It probably will not be free forever, though, so you can learn more and watch it here.

Trump Voters and Fairy Tales

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

There are several reasons I believe that people dislike Donald Trump:

  • He is not a member of the Career Politicians Club®, so is not easily controlled by special interest groups
  • Trump already has money (he even donates his presidential salary), so he is less likely to be influenced that way
  • Environmentalist nuts are angry that he does not fall for their global warming pressures and rejected the ridiculous Paris Accord, and the US is better on the environment than India, China, and the like
  • He doesn't roll over and play dead when the leftist media and politicians lie about him 
  • Voting fraud is rampant such as voting under names of dead people and busing illegals to the polls), so when Democrats claim that Shrillary won the popular vote (read: dominated by large urban centers and not the rest of the country), I lack belief that this is accurate
  • The President is very strongly pro-life — which is probably the biggest reason leftists hate him
Someone said they won't play Bridge because it has trump cards. If that is true, it would not be a surprise.

Leftists hate President Trump for several reasons. They also hate his supporters and use bad logic and bigotry to do so.
PhotoFunia is fun for photos
Most atheists are leftists (a few are Conservatives), and Conservatives are more likely to stand for values that leftists hate. (Chris Plante said, since they hate God, then dog is their co-pilot). They not only hate President Donald J. Trump, they hate us as well. They are intellectually challenged and morally bankrupt, saying anything to demonize Trump voters — millions of us. 

There are some long-running political shows on television, Face the Nation and Meet the Press that used to be respected. I've heard them called "Meet the Depressed" and "Face the Meat". Anyway, I heard about Meet the Press where the host Chuck Todd had dredged up a letter to the editor of a Kentucky newspaper that claimed to understand why people vote for Trump. The best discussion of this can be found on The Briefing by Dr. Mohler. The writer said that Trump supporters "have been trained from childhood to believe in fairy tales".

People who respect logic should be irritated at the fallacious claims because they utilize the straw man fallacy and sweeping false generalizations. It also stinks of prejudicial conjecture and is blatant bigotry. Does that tinhorn even know what fairy tales involve?

Rather than reinvent the wheel — uh, the weblog — I will repeat what I said elsewhere:
The fairy tale aspect is easily dismissed by comparing actual fairy tales with the Bible. You will find detailed, accurate history in the Bible and see that it reads quite differently from fairy tales.
In a similar way, myths and legends are usually vague and unbelievable; I wonder if people actually believed the tales of the Sumerian, Greek, Scandinavian, or other gods. Compare the Epic of Gilgamesh with the Genesis Flood account, for instance. Dr. Ben Scripture has a radio show and podcast where he and Scott Kump did a three-part series comparing the creation myths with the Genesis narrative, and you can easily spot the differences.
You may also like to see "What About Creation, Flood, and Language Division Legends?" and compare those with the biblical accounts.

Again, leftists hate God as well as Conservative values and the positions that President Trump upholds. Instead of winning elections through better ideas and policies, they demonize the opposition. Using intellectual and moral bankruptcy masquerading as reason and moral superiority, they simply attack. Some of us still think for ourselves and can see their foolishness for what it is.

Mike Rowe Faces Intolerance of Opposing Views

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

People who watched the television show Dirty Jobs that highlighted people who perform unpleasant and often hazardous work that allow the rest of us to keep our clothes and fingernails tidy know the host Mike Rowe. (The camera crew deserves high marks for getting involved as well!) If they doin't know him from the show, they may know his voice but not his name: this former opera singer uses his fabulous voice to narrate many documentaries and such. He is a professing Christian and an outspoken political Conservative, and uses his intelligence and wit to discuss his views. Someone may say that he's not a "real" Christian because he uses the occasional profanity, but I don't have such insight into someone's soul.


Some tinhorn wanted Mike Rowe fired from "How the Universe Works" because of his personal views
Mike Rowe image credit: Wikimedia Commons / Sklmsta
I did not know that he also narrates a show called How the Universe Works, which promotes secular views on that subject, until a reader of The Question Evolution Project flagged me about a recent attempt to get him fired from that show. No, it wasn't the current trend of sexual misconduct, nor was it involving poor job performance. Rather, some tinhorn does not like his personal views. Among other things, he was called a "science doubter". Listen, people who use epithets at Christians, Conservatives, Darwin doubters, global climate change doubters things like "science doubter/denier" are liars. Such accusations are not made with evidence. Those tactics are used by people who want contrary views suppressed, as you can see by their track records.

There are several popular narrators who are involved in documentaries that do not necessarily reflect their views. I've seen material narrated both for and against the Bible done by the same narrator. Same with movies. Anthony Hopkins did an outstanding job as Paul the Apostle in the 1981 miniseries Peter and Paul, and he is not even a Christian.  Was there an objection? Hopkins also played the part of Benito Mussolini, and I don't rightly recollect hearing about protests by Italian Fascists because Hopkins was not one of their own.

The fatuous complaint against Rowe is actually quite common when atheists and evolutionists ostracize Christians and especially biblical creationists from scientific research. The claim that atheism is required to be a scientists is risible even on the surface, and has been refuted many times. Arbitrary assertions of worldviews are not facts, nor are they evidence. Evolution, climate change, and other controversial subjects are protected by secularists. The most frequent way to do this is to keep contrary views out.

To read the article about Mike Rowe and his great response to his critic, click on "Mike Rowe Destroys Woman Who Wants Him Fired For Being ‘Ultra-Right Wing Conservative’". Watch for where he calls for evidence and relevance. I suspicion that Mike would be a very good creationist if he examined the material from the sources. Also, I think I'll set up the DVR and check out his new show.

Blamestorming and Leftist Morality

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Several things converged in my consciousness over the past several days, and I felt compelled to write about them. Someone made a post long ago suggesting new words for the times, one of which was blamestorming. (Apparently it was added to the dictionary in later years.) Essentially, blamestorming is where people try to find a way to assign blame instead of solving a problem. I believe that some jaspers will simply place blame for its own sake, often for the purpose of ridicule, and to build up their own egos at the expense of other people or concepts with which they disagree — often labeling them evil.


Ships of Columbus, Ivan Aivazovsky, 1880

Blaming Christopher Columbus

Relevant for today is the outrage from social justice warriors about Columbus Day. One particularly risible statement on the web is along the lines of, "You can celebrate Columbus Day by going to someone else's house and saying that you live there now". Some areas even wish to delete the day and pretend it doesn't exist. These ideas come from corrupted leftist viewpoints that blame Christopher Columbus for evils, real and especially imagined, happening in the United States.

Sometimes, people like that want us to "give America back to the Indians". (Which is ironic when illegal Mexicans in the Southwest demand "their" land, which their ancestors took from the indigenous peoples. Are they going to "give the land back", too? Not hardly!) Also, the natives were warring and "stealing" land from each other for centuries, so where does "give the land back" end?


Blame for the Las Vegas Murders

Leftists have been indulging in hatred for supporters of President Donald J. Trump for several months. Much of this is simply rage that a leftist did not get elected, and their tantrums included efforts to reject the US Constitution. After the murders in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017, leftists were rushing to blamestorm and politicize it for their own agenda. In this case, they detest the Second Amendment and want "gun control". Hillary Clinton was in the thick of things, and managed to sober up enough to humiliate herself. Leftist talk show hosts made vapid remarks, especially Jimmy Kimmel.

Some of the mentally incompetent leftists (but I repeat myself) wanted to blame the National Rifle Association, but they didn't do their homework: the number of mass shooters (and "mass shootings" are often defined as four or more) that are card-carrying NRA members is a big, fat, zero. Some leftists are so consumed with hate, they indicated that country music patrons were probably Trump supporters. This implied that since country fans are not mindless leftists, they deserve to die! At least CBS had sense enough to fire a heartless corporate VP.

So, the presumed Trump-supporting evil rednecks are subhuman and have no value to leftists, it appears. However, acts of heroism during the shooting are beginning to come to light. (Most likely, this is the same mentality of the "Cajun Navy" that helped flood victims in Houston, Texas.) People were helping one another, not inquiring about ethnicity, religion, sexual preference, politics or whatever. Elitists on the left are out of touch with real people.


Blame for Loss of Abortion "Rights"

I make no apologies that I reject abortion and the ridiculous arguments: "A woman's got a right to choose", "My body, my choice", "It's just a blob of cells going through stages of evolution", and so on. These "arguments" defy logic as well as morality. The issues is convoluted because "rights" are assumed, exceeding the provisions of the law and forgetting that true rights for men and women come from our Creator, not from legislation or activist judges.

Caliph B. Hussein Obama's mandate on abortion and contraception was overturned by Trump, and at the moment, there is a possibility that a ban on abortions after the child is twenty weeks old will be enacted. I recently walked in on a break-time discussion between two female co-workers on the subject. Should have brought crying towels! Impoverished women will not learn from their mistakes, so they'll be making babies and stay on welfare forever. Oh, please! Sheeple like that are the targets of angry leftists, forming more angry leftists. Those distressed damsels believed propaganda, and were unaware of the facts.

What lessons are women actually learning right now? That it's okay to be a — I mean, to be promiscuous — and then murder an unborn child because it is inconvenient. They are not learning true morality, nor are they learning God's standard for marriage. In addition, they are learning through putrefied rhetoric that free sex with whomever you desire is acceptable. Perhaps the fear of not being able to murder an unborn child would slow down the mattress dancing. I wouldn't bet on that, though.


Blaming Me for Someone Else's Reprimands

There is a tinhorn that I call Haywire the Stalker who hates biblical creationists, and especially this hombre, with a passion. (I should add that he is passionate about supporting another pseudoscience, a kissin' cousin of evolution, and that's global climate change.) He is unable or unwilling to discern the difference between lying and disagreement or error, and any evidence presented against evolution is "lying". He seeks glory and validation on forums and on Fazebook. However, Fazebook gave him a suspension, and he is weeping that he is a victim that is persecuted for telling the "truth". No, he's a mentally unstable demoniac who got a mild slap. He sowed, now he reaps, and I ain't taking the blame. Haywire should drink a nice, tall glass of dihydrogen monoxide and settle down a bit.

Another furious atheist was upset because he broke copyright laws and was called out on it. He did this several times, and my DMCA complaints were upheld some of the time. Once, he was ranting and I did not know what he meant, but apparently a post of his that was my property was removed. He broke the law and blamed me for the consequences.

Haywire and other misotheists have an irrational hatred for God, Christians, and creationists. I have seen atheists celebrating the death of Christians (this sidewinder, for example). You think I'm exaggerating? Go to some atheist social media and see what I mean.

True Blame

All of the above examples are very complicated, I'll allow. There is a Christian teaching that is called the "total depravity of man". Don't be galloping on ahead of me, let me tell you about it. While people are inherently sinful (Psalm 53:1-3, Romans 3:23), our righteousness is worthless in comparison to God (Isaiah 64:6), as is worldly wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:20). However, we can still do good things, as evidenced recently in Houston and Las Vegas (Matthew 7:9-11). We can reason, producing tremendous advances in medical science, technology, and the like, because we are created in God's image.

These are not in contradiction with Scripture, but a contrast. There is good and wisdom to be found among men, but it fails miserably when compared to the righteousness of God. The true blame for our failings is within ourselves and our rebellion against the Creator. We may consider ourselves "good", but we're not going to make it into Heaven on our own merits. No, we need to humble ourselves, repent (Luke 24:46-47, 2 Peter 3:9), and receive the gift of salvation (Romans 6:23). Then we shall be adopted as children of God (Romans 8:15, John 1:12).

Problems in America are not the fault of Christopher Columbus. They're not the fault of Trump or the NRA. They're not the fault of leftists. They're not my fault. They're not the fault of feral atheists. Finding other people to blame, especially for problems we have brought on ourselves, is worthless. Too many people are unwilling to accept responsibility for their own actions, and the consequences that follow.

Gender Reassignment Science Deniers

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Most people in the Western world have needed medical treatment several times in their lives, whether an ongoing condition, routine annual physical, or getting cactus spines removed when your horse bucked you off at the worst possible moment. You are given a form to fill out, and that form asks for your sex. Take a look-see at this PDF of a standard (and many times required) claim form. Right up there in box three, there are two check boxes, one for "male", and one for "female". There are no options for how you feel that day, what you claimed to be yesterday, what bathroom you feel like using, or anything like that.


The transgender-affirming crowd is not only defying common sense, but denying science. Further, they are contributing to mental illness.

People can rail against the way God made them all they want. They can take hormone supplements, undergo "gender reassignment surgery" (bodily mutilation), play with the politically correct crowd of how you feel that day, dress like the opposite gender — but you won't change the facts. You were born with certain chromosomes and DNA. To say, "Now that you got chopped up, changed your wardrobe, took chemicals, now you're a woman" is to be a science denier! Also, it's a case of suspending rational thinking. The politically correct crowd will no longer consider sexual deviation as a mental illness. Instead, they want to give coddling and "treatment", which only makes things worse and often includes sex-change regret. The politically correct thought police will probably cause me problems for speaking the truth.

New York City, that bastion of rational, conservative thought, will fine employers up to $250,000 if they deliberately use the wrong personal pronoun when referring to a trannie. That is downright insane! Aside from enabling mental illness and rampant politically correct leftism, this is bad for business. Imagine Bernie-becomes-Bonnie getting called "him", reporting the boss, the company gets fined — and goes out of business because it can't afford such a huge and ludicrous penalty.




We are in the early hours of 2016. Would you have thought such things would happen in 1996? In 2006? Or even 2015? I believe that political and cultural trends that defy our Creator and his Word are signs of the end times. Scriptures warned us that things would get mighty bad, and we're seeing it happen. About one third of the Bible is prophesy, and many prophesies have been dramatically fulfilled. No reason to think that Jesus' return is not that far away, old son.
