The "two consenting adults" test works only if there is no God. If God exists, and if He has been known to exterminate societies that make it all the way to the end of the path of degradation (think Sodom and Gomorrah, or Romans 1), then the community has a very compelling interest in what goes on "behind closed doors" between "two consenting adults."

Why weren't there any commercials with real people saying, "Windows Vista was my idea?"

The federal government is too failed to be big.

Isn't all cheese eventually blue cheese?

Some say the President has broken his promise of transparency. I disagree; I can see through him just fine.

I have 6-pack abs. And I keep them well insulated, as 6-packs should be.

Not a slam, just an observation: Most spiritual awakenings have started in small churches and tiny prayer groups. The big gatherings came later. And from what I've read, revivals often go sour when people start to focus on the effects, and not on God and His holiness.

Relativism is self-refuting. The statement, "There is no such thing as truth" cannot be true.

Rights don't compel citizens; they repel the government.

My cat does way too much thinking outside the box.

Some people believe in self-defense, but not in capital punishment. This strikes me as illogical. Lethal force is justified only if the attacker is morally worthy of death. So if we allow self-defense we've acknowledged that the assailant deserves to die before he actually commits the crime. If society may not put him to death after he carries out his evil intention, we've made the idea more heinous than the act.

If "This page is intentionally left blank," who goofed?

I don't consider myself antisocial. But I'm not always pro-social, either.

We need to hold a telethon for STG Syndrome. It is a greater scourge on our land than AIDS, Muscular Dystrophy and cancer, combined. How many of our country's seemingly intractable problems could be solved if we could cure people of the delusion that they're Smarter Than God?

Congress would be a real dog-and-pony show if it weren't for the fact that there's no pony.

The old term for "multitasking" was "distracted."

When I type the word "statist," the software dictionary wants me to change it to "sadist." How does it know?

If President Obama were caught on camera picking his nose, he would deny that he had fingers, or a nose; and declare that the nose-picking crisis was inherited from the previous administration. Hillary would blame the vast right-wing conspiracy. And Keith Olbermann would fume that anyone who saw a digit excavating the Presidential nostril is obviously a racist.

Until convicted by a jury of its peers, shouldn't it be called, "The alleged wife beater T-shirt?"

The basic equipment necessary to hear a message from God is a humble heart. Without receptivity, there is no reception.

The really depressing thing about my driver's license photo is that strangers have no trouble identifying me by it.

According to the foremost American disciples of Marx, the name of their own philosophy is a dirty word. That's too bad, because Socialism used to be the respectable, scientific wrapper for some very ugly things like envy, resentment and self-worship.

I feel sorry for those programs that are "Sponsored by Viewers Like You." I don't think there are any viewers like me, and if there are, they didn't send any money.

My favorite key is the Forward Delete key. It's for correcting mistakes you haven't made yet.

When someone writes "Thx" in a business email, the message I receive is: "I wanted to show some courtesy, but I couldn't quite squeeze it in. Your effort was appreciated, but not appreciated enough for me to type those extra three letters."

"Sry."

Ruin a leftist's day: barbecue a unicorn.
