How They Make a Safety Razor

I got into wetshaving years ago when Gillette came out with their 5-bladed razor. I was getting fed up with buying 4 cartridges for about $15 for these new "shaving systems". I decided to go back to the "shaving system" my grandfather used. A safety razor with a double edged blade. Then I git rid of the can, and decided to use a brush and soap in a cup. Now I make my own soap (well, melt it is more accurate word because I'm using glycerin soap, so all I have to do is melt it into the cup in the microwave, and add a few drops of scent and a drop if color).

Those Nasty Traditionalists!

I enjoy reading Erin Manning. She writes at a blog called And Sometimes Tea. But every so often she goes on a tear against who she considered "conservative" Catholics. She has critiqued Pope Francis' speech with that trademark and should I say un-Christ-like disdain she presents when she get some particular bee in her bonnet.

Congressman Speaking Truth to Power

Let me introduce Rep. Brindenstine.

Is it Time to Leave the Republican Party

Patrick Archbold is fed up with the Republican party...

I am almost there.

For years, I have advocated involvement in the Republican party by conservative Catholics as the best means of creating an effective group dedicated to the principles we hold dear. Among these principles are life, liberty, and subsidiarity.

S.E. Cupp won't be "Rushed".

In an article for the NY Post entitled "I won't be Rushed", S.E. Cupp says:

“And we can’t be afraid to call out Rush Limbaugh,” I say as an aside in the piece. “If we can get three Republicans on three different networks saying, ‘What Rush Limbaugh said is crazy and stupid and dangerous,’ maybe that’ll give other Republicans cover” to feel comfortable disagreeing with him as well from time to time.

Who is Manti Te'o?

I first heard the name Manti Te'o on Sirius satellite radio. I discovered that he was a football player who played for Notre Dame. But he was famous because he had a fake girlfriend.

Who cares?

Why Good People Support Gun Ownership

Whether you are pro-gun, anti-gun, or something in between, if you are interested in why good people support the ownership of firearms, I don't think there's a better article out there than this one.

The Face of Evil

It's been a week since the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy, and I've had time to think about it. I have debated with the gun control personal protection prevention advocates. There has been a discussion of mental illness, and how we can identify these sociopaths and get them the help they need. There have even been calls (by myself included) for "hardening" our schools. But all of these suggestions miss the mark (excuse the pun). The real reason is...

Satan.

20 Ways For Young Men to Become REAL Men

Great article from One More Soul...

“There is need for a crusade of manliness and purity to counteract and nullify the savage work of those who think man is a beast. And that crusade is your work”

- St. Josemaría Escrivá

1. Tell cool, funny jokes, not the kind that would make a pure woman blush—or be offended!
