I normally don’t like to make predictions, but in 2008 I stuck my neck out — after Hillary was reduced to tears by a community organizer with no experience at anything except orchestrating protests — and predicted that she would never be president of the United States. You can’t take it to the bank yet, […]

Trump’s Best Traits Can Work for You

Posted on December 19, 2015 by Robert Ringer Comments (47)

Though I use Donald Trump as an example, this is not meant to be a political article. Rather, it’s about two important aspects of human nature. Many establishment Republicans dislike Trump because they believe he’s more of a liberal than a conservative. But, in truth, he’s neither. He’s really a classic example of a hard-nosed […]

The Distraction of Word Games

Posted on December 7, 2015 by Robert Ringer Comments (36)

It’s bad enough that politicians and media pundits have obsessed over the question of whether or not the word “Muslim” should be used to refer to someone who is a Muslim and has committed mass murder. But in the case of the San Bernardino massacre, the hand-wringing centers more around the source of Syed Farook’s […]

Dick Tracy and Cellular Smartwatches

TTR---June,-1983-2

Now that we’re in the early stages of cellular smartwatches, I thought you’d enjoy taking a trip back to the early 1980s and reading the first article I wrote about cellular telephone, a technology that the average person had not yet even heard of at the time. As you can see, the tongue-in-cheek title of […]

There’s something about Thanksgiving that brings back memories of my childhood, more so even than Christmas. I consider myself to be blessed to have lived in America when it was a symbol of stability and freedom to people everywhere. As the world continues its sociological supernova, I find myself increasingly saddened by the fact that […]

Judge, and Prepare to Be Judged

The infantile behavior and entitlement mentality of rioting college students at the University of Missouri, Ithaca College, and Smith College, while something of a yawner in our age of lie-laced victimization protests, is part of a much broader problem. The broader problem I’m referring to is the complete disintegration of Western civilization — i.e., the […]

The Mystery of Death

In my recent article titled “Immortality versus Nothingness,” I speculated on what happens to us after death. As a compliment to that article, I’m going to focus here on the abstract of death itself, because the daily news is saturated with tales of death. Consider: The south side of Chicago is now more dangerous than […]

Envy is an emotion that all human beings possess to one extent or another. It has no doubt been around since “civilized” man first arrived on the scene. But today’s envy is much more extreme than it was just a few decades ago. I believe we are now in the midst of what historians may […]

The question of whether man is wolf or sheep has been around for a long time and, not surprisingly, there are strong opinions on both sides. It’s certainly not hard to understand the sheep side of the argument. The majority of people are easily influenced by institutional leaders, whether they represent the state, the church, […]

Have you ever wondered why time seems to pass much more quickly every year of your life? Since virtually everyone experiences this phenomenon, there has to be a concrete reason for it. In other words, it can’t just be everyone’s imagination. As it turns out, there have been many theories set forth to explain this […]
