Quests for Change
 
 EMP: A Clear and Present Danger (June 24, 2010 at 6:00 AM )
Last summer, I experienced one of the scariest novels I have ever read. It truly scared me and the author was not who you might expect. Instead of Steven King, Dean Koontz, or the horror writer of your choice, this...

 37 Years, Over 50 Million Dead (June 23, 2010 at 12:05 PM )
A reader sent me a link to a recent abortion article. It is well worth reading for those of us who care about the unborn....

 Another Reason to Oppose ObamaCare (September 24, 2009 at 10:20 PM )
I am all for health care reform, but to me that means fixing the problems facing our medical private sector, not following the rest of the world into socialized medicine. Yes, we can and should do more to help US...

 Email about Abortion and Scripture (September 16, 2009 at 4:10 PM )
Quixote responds to an email about what the Bible says about abortion.

 Some Perspective (November 04, 2008 at 7:07 AM )
Today is Election Day and I still have hope that Obama will not be our next president. Even though I am certainly not excited about a possible McCain presidency, the prospect of an Obama presidency fills me with great concern...

 Advertising vs. Entertainment (October 15, 2008 at 10:18 AM )
When I make the time to play games (and I would like to make the time to get involved in gaming again now that my children are getting old enough to play too), I play for entertainment and escapism. I...

 Beware of Congress (September 29, 2008 at 10:23 AM )
We are witnessing one of biggest governmental power grabs in history. Congress and two presidents caused this mortgage crisis and now Congress and a third president are trying to saddle the taxpayer with more debt to give the government more...

 Technology and Attitude Toward Abortion (September 27, 2008 at 9:11 AM )
As a college professor, I have the opportunity to get to know many students in the 18-24 age range as well as some non-traditional students. In general, it seems that a greater percentage of students are pro-life than they were...

 Fannie & Freddie – The Worst of Both Worlds (September 08, 2008 at 6:40 PM )
Capitalism has its advantages and disadvantages. Government has its place and there are some things it can do better than the free market. There are also many things where it is much worse than the free market. However, the worse...

 Resources for the Global Warming Debate (July 25, 2007 at 3:01 PM )
Anyone interested in the global warming debate should avail themselves of the following resources. For a brief overview of the science of global warming and/or simply to see how much you really know about global warming, take the Global Warming...

 The Future of Medicine – Hopefully (January 23, 2007 at 9:41 AM )
Hats off to Dr. Robert Berry who is almost single-handedly trying to revolutionize the practice of medicine in the United States. For instance, he refuses to accept any payment from insurance companies. He does this out of principle, as anyone...

 Missouri's Misleading Marketing: Stem Cell Research (November 06, 2006 at 10:21 PM )
The writers of this bill clearly think most Missourians are a bunch of ignorant hicks who cannot understand that this amendment has been written in the most deceitful method the writers could contrive. A more accurate amendment title would be Embryonic Stem Cell and Test Tube Cloning Amendment

 Free Markets, Filth, and Television (October 03, 2006 at 3:08 PM )
We do not have a competitive market for television channels in most of the US. Most consumers have four ways to obtain content if they want to watch TV. The simplest way is to just watch free TV that consumers...

 Capitalistic Twinges Finally Seen in Health Care (September 26, 2006 at 3:59 PM )
A tenet of both conservatism and libertarianism is that a free market will best meet the needs of people so long as competition is protected (the majority of conservatives and some libertarians do see the need for government to restrict...

 Why I Don’t Use PayPal (September 23, 2006 at 7:09 PM )
A very dedicated reader, despite my neglect of my email friends, has persevered in asking about a negative PayPal experience that I had. Since I haven’t posted in too long (our house might be done by Thanksgiving!), maybe this post...

 Better Late Than Never (May 26, 2006 at 3:20 PM )
After 108 years, the unconstitutional and illegal phone tax will finally cease. After July 31, phone companies should no longer collect this tax (so check your bills in August). It only took the rulings of five appeals court to make...

 Letters and Thoughts about Illegal Immigrants (May 04, 2006 at 5:39 PM )
This country was founded by immigrants and we have an obligation to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Yet we cannot afford to support the world and there are inherent fairness issues (should an illegal immigrant who snuck into the...

 Request for Ideas (April 14, 2006 at 9:03 AM )
I am about to hire a firm to add shopping to Solport. I will be stocking innovative items, mostly consumer electronics, that are not typically carried by mass merchandise stores. My working slogan is: Solport: The most innovative products in...

 Problems with Perseus (March 01, 2006 at 2:10 PM )
As part of my career, I create marketing surveys. More and more of my surveys have been online surveys as the typical American now has internet access at either work or home. I have used several programs and services, but...

 Three Economic Books (February 27, 2006 at 1:19 PM )
While Three Economic Books is not the most exciting title in the world, I was pleasantly surprised by how interesting some of my recent reading has been. The FairTax Book is a light, but interesting read on taxes – a...

 Free Speech Hypocrites (February 21, 2006 at 1:49 PM )
James Joyner has an interesting post on free speech, or the lack thereof, in Europe. He quotes Sebastian Holsclaw and both make the point that people should be allowed to say stupid things. I don't see why many of my...

I have waited over two weeks to post about President Bush's nomination of Harriet Miers for several reasons. I was disappointed that Bush did not pick someone with an established constitutionalist view, I was not familiar with Miers, and my...

 Constitutional Amendment (June 27, 2005 at 2:50 PM )
James Taranto, who I would classify as a coastal Republican (e.g., conservative on most issues, but liberal on social issues; similar to the founders of the libertarian party) had a very interesting suggestion yesterday for a new amendment. Section 1....

 Help Improve Google News (November 11, 2004 at 10:32 AM )
I have been using Google as a news source since about the time it came out. It is still a Beta release, but it works very well. They are a news aggregator, their computer algorithms sort through many news sources...

 Ideas Have Impact (May 01, 2004 at 10:36 PM )
One of my quests for change is slowly bearing fruit. The poliblogger has implemented a permalink for his political Toast-O-Meter. If you are a fan of his political analysis (and you should be), consider adding http://poliblogger.com/toast.html to your bookmarks....

 An Open Letter to the Blogosphere (March 22, 2004 at 3:20 PM )
Dear Carnival of the [insert name here], I think the idea of periodically bringing together various bloggers under one umbrella has many benefits. I have been pleased to participate in some of these events myself. I also appreciate watching the...

 When Movie Previews are Inappropriate (March 12, 2004 at 4:28 PM )
I have always thought it unethical to promote R rated movies at PG and G rated shows. Likewise, I think it wrong for movie theaters to show trailers for PG movies to customers who bought a ticket for a G...

 Quests for Change (March 12, 2004 at 4:26 PM )
One of my resolutions for 2004 was to post new ideas on my blog. To help me track this, I am starting a new category entitled Quests for Change. These quests may be quixotic, but they are changes that I...
