Do We Owe Gratitude to American Veterans For Having Fought in Iraq?

Robert L. Johnson 2013-03-22 05:56
Column by Robert L. Johnson. Exclusive to STR U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel marked the 10th anniversary of the U.S. war against Iraq by saying, “Every one of the more than one million service members that deployed to Iraq, often for multiple tours of duty, deserves our highest praise and deepest debt of gratitude.” Is Hagel correct? Do the American people owe the veterans of...
Democrats Demonstrate Why Voting Is a Fraud

Robert L. Johnson 2012-09-11 00:00
Column by Robert Johnson. Exclusive to STR This past Wednesday, September 5, 2012, is a day that should live on as a day of true education. For on that day the Democratic Party let all the world see, and it was preserved on video for posterity to witness and learn from, what a truly senseless and foolish act voting is. Thank you, Dems!   The powerful and clear lesson came as Los Angeles...

Column by Robert Johnson. Exclusive to STR  We are all appalled and disgusted when we hear about Islamic courts sentencing people to be whipped or beheaded for blasphemy against Islam or Mohammed.   We wonder how injustices can be justified by their perpetrators when we see images of Muslims being forced from their homes by Israeli settlers or hear Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu...

Column by Robert Johnson. Exclusive to STR November 16, 2010 marked the 77th anniversary of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the United States government turning a blind eye towards the Holocaust of the Ukrainian people. On November 16, 1933, the United States formally recognized the Soviet Union for the first time with an official pact.   The pact was brought about not by Roosevelt negotiating...
C.S. Lewis Called for a Christian Theocracy

Robert L. Johnson 2010-09-09 03:00
By Robert L. Johnson.   Exclusive to STR   After reading articles by David J. Theroux of the C.S. Lewis Society which had links at www.strike-the-root.com and which paint the Christian apologist C.S. Lewis as a freedom loving libertarian, I had a hard time reconciling what little I do clearly know of Lewis with the claims made by Theroux. The only book I’ve read that Lewis wrote...
Voting: Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Robert L. Johnson 2010-07-21 03:00
By Robert L. Johnson.   Exclusive to STR   A recent ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that 51 percent of the voting cattle are upset with Obama and the Democrats. Their solution is to replace the Democrats with Republicans! This is similar to actual beef cattle preferring Burger King to McDonalds. Either way, the cattle lose.   The Republicans, who the voting cattle are taking a...
The Biblical Roots of the “Lunatic State of Israel”

Robert L. Johnson 2010-06-14 03:00
Exclusive to STR     The courageous Jew Norm Finkelstein recently described the Jewish state of Israel as a “lunatic state.” He made this statement during an interview regarding the slaughter of nine volunteers who were murdered by the Israeli Occupation Forces while trying to break Israel’s illegal and anti-human blockade of Gaza. The nine people murdered in the...
Obama Takes a Double Bitch Slap from Israel

Robert L. Johnson 2010-05-10 03:00
Exclusive to STR   Bitch slap number one: U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is in Israel trying to restart the Palestinian/Israeli peace talks. While in Israel the Israeli government announces its plan to build 1,600 apartments for Jews in Palestinian East Jerusalem. This allegedly outrages Biden and the Obama administration. How can they appear to be working for peace in the Middle East when...

Why 'The Greatest Generation'?
9
Robert L. Johnson 2010-01-12 04:00
Exclusive to STR   Tom Brokaw coined the phrase “the Greatest Generation” for those Americans who lived through the Great Depression of the 1930s and who went on to fight, kill and die in World War II. You have to ask yourself why a key spokesman for the established government-friendly (to say the least) mainstream media would hold these Americans in such high regard.  ...
Religious Political Creep

Robert L. Johnson 2009-10-26 17:00
Exclusive to STR The great George Carlin once said, 'I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.' I couldn't agree more! When these two groups of proponents of bad ideas get together for a common goal, the end result is the Dark Ages. When American revolutionaries...
Osama bin Laden Knows More About American Government Than Americans Do

Robert L. Johnson 2009-09-20 16:00
Exclusive to STR In Osama bin Laden's most recent message to the American people, he clearly demonstrates that he knows much more about the real workings of American government and politics than the average voting American. Most people who waste their time voting sincerely believe that their vote matters and will make a difference. They don't realize that the politicians do not have to answer to...
Be Careful What You Call 'The Word of God'

Robert L. Johnson 2009-07-23 16:00
Exclusive to STR July 24, 2009 Recently, strike-the-root.com linked to an article by former President Jimmy Carter (a sincere, born-again Christian) called 'The Words of God Do Not Justify Cruelty to Women,' which deplores the abusive and unreasonable treatment of women by 'revealed' religions. The title of his article was the same as that of the link on STR . This title assumes too much.

Exclusive to STR May 5, 2009 God-given reason and the Bill of Rights have just taken a beating from a federal judge. The judge, James Selna, ruled that when history teacher of 20 years James Corbett referred to the Bible teaching of creation as "religious, superstitious nonsense" that he violated the First Amendment by attacking Christianity.

Why Deism and Corrupt Government Don"t Mix
10
Robert L. Johnson 2004-12-16 17:00
It's been my experience when talking to people about religion, that the overwhelming majority of them have never heard of Deism. Hopefully, with the recent conversion of world-famous philosopher and atheist, Antony Flew, to Deism, this will begin to change. The lack of knowledge of Deism is highly unusual given the strong role Deism has played in the history of Europe and America. But, as FDR is...
