About

I am an attorney and philosopher, practicing philosophy in Palmetto Bay, Florida. When not practicing, I am an avid scuba diver and scuba instructor. My students have decided that scuba is an acronym for Some Come Up Barely Alive!  I am learning to play the banjo, and my big ambitions at the moment are to bicycle across America and to hike the Appalachian Trail.

    Mr. McKenna, I found your rants very difficult to read because you are so full of hate and resentment. I feel sorry for you. I wonder how men like you become so focused on feeling victimized by everything. Your basis seems to be the fear of the unknown, and anything but your WASP and mostly male persepective is allowable to you. No other opinion or thought is allowed. You’re impenatrable. You’ve been spoiled your whole life and are an elitist. I don’t know how someone like you becomes a whole person. Perhaps try to meditate and try to accept a consciousness. You have cognitive disorders…several of them. Look it up. I feel sorry for people like you. You attract and encourage other men to be tainted also. Where will the world come to with such shortsidedness? You are the reason the republic will fail.

      Wow! Most people wait to know me for a while before insulting me. Full of hate and resentment? Not in the least. Feel victimized? Again, not so. I happen to be happy, well-adjusted, and incredibly lucky. As for being a WASP, I am white, but swing and a miss on the rest. As far as other’s opinions and thoughts, as D.P. Moynihan(D-NY) was fond of saying, “everyone is entitled to their own opinion, not their own facts!” Elitist? You should ask my friends whether I’m an elitist. Spoiled? I went to public schools, never had a car until I was 22, left home at 17 to work, and paid for my own way through college and law school. No loans, no grants, no student aid. The only advantage my parents gave me was a working knowledge of Greek, Latin, and Morality. Cognitive disorders? Moi? I didn’t know you were a psychiatrist. You seem to be upset that I take facts, apply logic, then come to a conclusion that you disagree with. Perhaps you should take issue with my conclusions and refute them, instead of merely insulting me.

        Well said Mr. McKenna. I also feel frustrated when progressives just insult and demonize the individual instead of disagreeing by bringing facts to the table.

        Thanks! That’s kind of you to say. I’m sorry I haven’t written in a while, I’ve been on vacation. Come back soon, there’ll be new blogs starting tomorrow!

      Mrs. Zimmerman- well, you are just downright mean… but I’m sure you’ve heard that before. Your comments were ugly and insulting… and, as is so often the case, they encapsulated the heart of every accusation you hurled at Christopher. Be nice, Mrs. Zimmerman, be nice!

    I’ve known Mr. McKenna since high school and in all this time, even though we lost touch a number of years in the middle, I’ve known him to be rational, intelligent, very down to earth and very articulate and insightful. Mrs. Zimmerman is so far off base she would be comical except that she believes the tripe she is spewing. Chris, keep posting your insight and analysis of what’s going on in the world, because well reasoned discourse is sadly lacking in the world at large.
