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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

I happened to bump into an old acquaintance of mine the other day whom I hadn’t seen in years. What I remembered about him was that he was one of the most narcissistic people I’ve ever known. And, true to his old self, he immediately began talking about money. At one point in our conversation, […]

I’ve written a number of times about the sad ending of my love affair with Glenn Beck, the most talented person ever to grace a television screen. Today, I find him to be such a turnoff that I’m tempted to mute him when he occasionally appears as a second-rate guest on someone’s show. Beck’s fall […]

My last article about the origin of the universe raised a lot of interesting questions from readers. One, in particular, caught my attention.
