Caitlyn Jenner, the Illuminati, and androgyny

It seems like almost everyone is talking these days about what’s going on with Caitlyn Jenner, who used to be Bruce Jenner. He is the Olympic athlete who recently appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair to celebrate his new female identity. Needless to say, this has created a lot of controversy. But one thing […]

Bruce Jenner does not identify as a woman

I think it’s wonderful that people are being so tolerant about Bruce Jenner, but according to how he has lived his life, he is a man, a man who cross dresses, rather than a man who identifies as a woman. I think it’s important to make this distinction because he confuses people who are not […]

Michael Muhney’s firing: People; let’s get practical!

The firing of Michael Muhney at The Young and the Restless, a daytime soap opera, is continuing to receive a good deal of media attention. The latest trend being covered is that some of the show’s actors are speaking out and basically saying that the show has a right to fire whomever they want as […]

Michael Muhney, fired from Y&R, but is it fair?

Michael Muhney has been accused of groping co-star Hunter King’s breasts, and that has allegedly led to his firing from the top-rated soap, Young and the Restless. I have defended him on my Twitter account, because I think his treatment is indicative of a wider societal problem that I have commented on before.   Since […]

History of American Thanksgiving

In history books in America, you can read that after the first harsh New England winter, the European pilgrims invited the Natives to a celebratory feast. However, the truth, according to this site, is a capitalistic overthrow of an entire people. In 1614 the British arrived in New England and took 24 slaves back with […]

The history of Halloween: Satanism, pagan rituals, and devil worship

Celebrating Halloween is one of the best ways to worship Satan. Halloween is second only to May 1 in the list of important Satanic holidays. Many people say “Happy Halloween,” without realizing the import of what they are saying because they do not understand the history of holiday. Additionally, it’s not even really a holiday […]

Russell Brand and the Illuminati: Brand wants revolution!

Russell Brand wants a revolution. Paxman asked him who he was to edit a popular political magazine like the New Statesman. Paxman had a problem with Brand because he does not vote. Brand replies, very intelligently, that he does not get his authority to have an opinion from voting. One of Brand’s platforms is the […]

The Illuminati, Henry Makow, sex and pornography

Henry Makow asserts in his article that porn represents a 12 billion dollar industry in the United States. He offers the opinion that the Illuminati subsidizes porn to enslave the minds and souls of millions. Debt, false flags, and mind control are three interests of the Illuminati. Mind control seems to me to be the […]

The history of American Thanksgiving

  This is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada, and I am definitely grateful for all that I have, but there is a history to the holiday that is not all dressing and stuffing! According to the site I’m summarizing, his is the history of Thanksgiving from a Native American point of view. Supposedly, the Christian God […]

Significant decisions for the LGBT community and advocates: DOMA and Proposition 8

Today is a vitally significant day in American culture because of two rulings made by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). The decisions are historic because of their impact on the wider society, regardless of whether or not a person approves or disapproves of the message sent by the Supreme Court. Specifically, the […]

Jimmy Carter, the Catholic Church, and women’s rights

  In a recent interview, Jimmy Carter posited that the Catholic church is wrong for not ordaining women, based on a website article I was reading earlier today (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/23/carter-catholic-ordain-women_n_3488082.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000003). He believes that organized religion can fight for women’s rights, instead of oppressing them, as is believed by some to happen.   Carter believes that discrimination […]

Why we should read James Zemboy: Agatha Christie and the servant class, adoption, and

I am currently rereading James Zemboy’s The Detective Novels of Agatha Christie. It is more expensive than traditional books, but I highly recommend it, because it is well worth the extra price. I won’t mention the price, because it’s different in different formats, but I did pay 30 some dollars for it and I read […]

Is Angelina Jolie being brave or foolish about her breast cancer decision?

Doctors have told Angelina Jolie, the movie actress married to Brad Pitt, that she has an 87% chance of becoming afflicted with breast cancer. Her decision, when confronted with this tragic possibility, was to undergo a process where both of her breasts would be surgically removed and she would then get implant reconstruction. Because of […]

Are the new One Life to Live and All My Children any good?

The answer to this question is a resounding yes! They are both like a breath of fresh air. Because the shows are not on networks, the producers have more freedom to be more adult in their depiction of these fictional characters. Four-letter words are uttered (no, not that one, at least not yet). On One […]

The sin of sex: how serious is it? (Part 1)

I recently read that Mormons believe that sexual sin is next only to murder and denying the Holy Ghost in terms of seriousness. I wondered if this could be true because it seems so extreme to me. According to the official Church website (or what I believe is; someone can correct me if I am […]

Classic movies: What makes them so good?

People have different opinions about classic movies. Many people do not like to watch films that are not in colour, but instead are in black and white. However, sometimes this can considerably lend itself to a great atmosphere. For example, think about film noir. Some classic films in this genre include Double Indemnity and The […]

What is the Illuminati?

The Illuminati from what I understand is a secret society. It is pursuing a New World Order where national or state boundaries become extinct. They want globalization on a grand scale. I have read that the movement began in the 18th century in Bavaria. I am just learning about this society myself, but have picked […]

Masculinity and men in the Middle East

Moustaches in the Middle East are a fascinating topic. The above picture is of a young Persian man. Notice the perfection of his beard. He looks well-groomed, and trimmed with the facial hair offsetting the perfect complexion of his skin. I know several Arabs and Persians who have similarly impressive goatees and beards, so the […]

Luke and Laura, General Hospital, and Ron Carlivati better not let us down!

Laura is back on General Hospital! Today was the first show I’ve seen in a while. I came back because I saw Genie Francis on a cover of one of the soap news magazines. I haven’t watched the show on a daily basis for years—in fact, I think that the last time I watched regularly […]
