In supposedly “making progress” the devastating […]

Never too early – or late – when it’s time to learn

Why spend time learning, when action is what is required? Such thinking is not new to mankind. I’ve often promoted the need for those in the Tea Party Movement to learn good apologetics – the ability to defend the existence of God as a part of rational understanding of all things created – simply because […]
