Conservative Truth

No one is certain whether little green men really live on Mars. But if they do, human frailty may keep us from ever meeting them. We have the technology to put men and women on Mars, but with NASA’s current health and spacesuit technology, they probably wouldn't survive the trip. Why?
 
Have you ever noticed that when astronauts return to the earth after six months on the space station, they disappear for several months following the smiling publicity shots? That’s because their bodies take a while – sometimes a long while – to adjust to the normality of earth. Most astronauts exercise several hours a day on their missions to counteract the harmful effects of living in space, but it still takes months of rehabilitation to adjust to living on earth after a typical six-month space mission.  Read more...

We all need open, honest, compassionate dialogue!
Paul Hayden
There is a HUGE need for productive dialogue in our country and in the world - reasonable, rational, thoughtful, honest, and compassionate debate and discourse on how to solve our problems and improve our country. We have problems that are affecting us all now, or they will be soon enough. 

If we were to give ourselves to love, to being loving, what a difference it would make in this world, in our country, and with all those with whom we live and work. If you are looking for meaning in your life, perhaps you should see that your purpose in life might be to see that life itself is the meaning!  Read more...
Would it be paradise in a world without gunpowder?
Ric Wasley
Many think it would be a paradise to live in a world where gunpowder had never been invented - but would it?

In the wake of the tragedy in Las Vegas, the inevitable debate begins between those who support the rights of the individual as guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment and those who feel that humans are just not responsible and sane enough to have access to anything that will allow them to kill multiple members of their fellow men. Sadly, as long as there have been humans there have been those who through either evil or madness, have propagated murder upon the innocent. Thus it is natural to seek ways from allowing such people access to the instruments of destruction. Many point to the object of the gun itself and wish it had never been invented. Read more...
To active shooters, "success" means mass casualties
Dr. Joe Alton
More and more, active shooters have become part of the New Normal. Why do gunmen "succeed" so often in producing mass casualties in public venues? What can the average citizen do to stay safe in crowds? Preparedness writer Joe Alton, MD, gives his thoughts and some recommendations for the uncertain future. Plus, police response is challenged by the complexity of information and misinformation; see a partial transcript of police communications regarding the Las Vegas shooting at the end of the article.  Read more...

The Reformers did their job that shook the world but their results have faded; after all, nothing lasts. Moreover, they failed when they formed state churches that still exist which should be disbanded today. Thank God for the reformers with all their flaws; but with the modern sexual perversion endorsed by religious leaders, apostasy by all the mainline denominations, general unbelief, and wicked rebellion of church members, it’s time for another Reformation!

It’s time to welcome the Reformers - again!  Read more...

Why would the executive branch relinquish some power, and return liberty back to Americans? White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday, “The president believes that the freedom to practice one’s faith is a fundamental right in this country, and I think all of us do, and that's all that today was about - our federal government should always protect that right.”

Make no mistake, the First Amendment has everything to do with limiting authority and promoting liberty. Period. “Congress shall make no law” prevents tyranny; “respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” promotes liberty.  Read more...

Have you ever heard of crabology? I'm told you never need to put a lid on a bucket of crabs. Why? If one crab tries to crawl out, all the other crabs will pull the ascending crab back into the bucket. That’s one group of frustrated crabs. Any group with a crabology groupthink, keeps everything status quo, safe for the moment but not free.  Read more...
The roads not taken...
Bob Pascarella
Is there some grand plan for humanity,
is our destiny already foretold,
and were all past decisions written in the stars,
and not under our control?

Keep in mind that decisions have consequences and will affect future generations.  Read more...

Before Obama, race relations in America were not perfect, but according to the narcissist’s own words, America would begin to heal once he took the oath of office. Instead, he slowly (or quickly) tore open old wounds. Race-based hirings in his White House included the addition of a full-blown racist as Attorney General. Today, Eric Holder, Michelle Obama, and the influence of Al Sharpton are all gone from the national scene. Presidential verbal attacks on police have ceased. Now we are left with the aftermath.  Read more...

During his visit to hurricane-stricken Puerto Rico, President Donald Trump shocked the bond market when he told Geraldo Rivera of Fox News that he was going to wipe out the island’s bond debt. He said on October 3rd:

"You know they owe a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street. We’re gonna have to wipe that out. That’s gonna have to be — you know, you can say goodbye to that. I don’t know if it’s Goldman Sachs but whoever it is, you can wave good-bye to that."

How does the president plan to pull this off?  Read more...
