I am now on my third reading of a fascinating book, “The Genesis of Science”, by James Hannam.
Hannam shows how the emergence of what we call “science” did not spring from the foreheads of a few Renaissance geniuses who managed to somehow overcome to oppressive Catholicism of the Middle Ages.
Rather, those geniuses built on the steady progression of developments by brilliant thinkers during the Middle Ages who had been educated at Catholic monasteries and universities. Continue reading
There was a post on my Facebook feed from a local politician running for state rep. I commented why is it that some candidates will not declare their political affiliation. It’s a culture of lies and deception to achieve an end. So it goes in Wisconsin.
Scott Walker Participates in Nearly Twice as Many Public Events as Dem Challenger

Susan Collins, a Maine Republican, has always been a dependable ally for the Democrats in almost every crucial issue. All that changed with her stunning speech in support of Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and was viewed as the key to his appointment. Feeling betrayed, Democrats have gone all out to get revenge on Collins. This is just the latest.

The Clintons are off on a lecture tour charging $750 a plate. The first thing Bubba asks a girl is, “How old are you?”
For those of you who are unaware, Robert Menendez’ biggest campaign contributor was a Florida dentist named Solomon Melgen, who has been convicted of more than 90 counts of Medicaid fraud.

Clinton raised hundreds and hundreds of millions while he was in office. He refused to share a nickel with other Democrats. He was so insecure he thought he needed to hoard it all for him to stay in power.

Stahl wanted to change the subject but Trump would not be dissuaded, nailing it down by stating, “In the meantime, I’m president and you’re not.”
Trump also stated, “I never knew how dishonest the media was and I really mean it. I’m not saying that as a soundbite.“
CBS Prime-Time Shows Honor Hillary
Hillary Clinton isn’t president, but Hollywood is offering the biggest consolation prize it has: working her into TV plots where she can be toasted as wise and wonderful. Within the first two weeks of the fall season, CBS has done this twice. Continue reading
