Psst — conservatives: Screw you!

Posted on January 26, 2016 by Robert Ringer

I am but a humble messenger. It’s the millions of Trump supporters who are robustly delivering the message contained in the title of this article to the conservative elites. But give credit where credit is due: The elites aren’t giving up. The National Review’s recent cover, “AGAINST TRUMP,” made that crystal clear. But it also […]

Discovering You’re Sane

Over the years, I can’t tell you how many emails and letters I’ve received from readers who have said things like, “I thought maybe I was crazy until I read your book.” They always seem to be genuinely relieved to discover that someone else has similar thoughts to theirs. This is really what the Trump […]

Resisting Conformity

Scientists tell us that human intelligence is the most powerful force in the universe. That’s right — not gamma-ray bursts, not black holes, not gravity, but human intelligence. To the best of our knowledge, man is the only compilation of atoms that is both aware of itself and gifted with the power to reason. His […]

“Obviously,” Trump Can’t Win

Posted on January 4, 2016 by Robert Ringer

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

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

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 […]

The Age of Innocence

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 […]

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 […]

Is Man Wolf or Sheep?

Posted on October 27, 2015 by Robert Ringer

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, […]
