The Moral Bankruptcy of the United States Senate

The whole Roy Moore fiasco has turned into a full blown knock down drag out fight.  Everybody knows that Mitch McConnell really wanted Luther Strange to keep that Senate seat.  And the ensuing politics has gotten dirty.  We have had just about every member of the Senate GOP caucus line up to withdraw their support from Roy Moore and lecture us on the high ethical standard that one must maintain in order to be a United States Senator.  Please, hold your laughter.  Even if every rotten story that has come out about Roy Moore is true, that would only...

The Real Reason Take a Knee Is A Problem

There has been a lot of digital ink spilled over the past couple of days regarding the NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem.  There’s clearly a lot of people that are very offended by it, but this article isn’t going to be about that directly.  Sure, it was the intent of Colin Kaepernick to do something that many people would find exceedingly vexing to draw attention to his cause (which was the whole Black Lives Matter movement, but that has also been lost in the whole kerfluffle).  The First Amendment says that the government can’t make...

Virtue Signaling Run Amuck

Virtue signalling is the conspicuous expression of moral values by an individual done primarily with the intent of enhancing that person’s standing within a social group. The term was first used in signalling theory, to describe any behavior that could be used to signal virtue – especially piety among the political or religious faithful. Since 2015, the term has become more commonly used as a pejorative characterization by commentators to criticize what they regard as the platitudinous, empty, or superficial support of certain political views, and also used within groups to criticize their own members for valuing outward appearance...
