Mike asks the question: If the goal of gun control is to save lives, shouldn’t we be also looking at other ways that kill people? Alcohol, for instance. Mike shares a personal story with us that brings this into better focus – his sister was killed by a drunk driver nearly 40 years ago.

Social Media is training people to have a very short attention span. If it doesn’t fit in a meme or a couple of paragraphs, most people will quickly lose interest. Most people, but not all. We believe independent and deep thinkers still exist. We’re hoping you’re one of them.
People with Conservative values are finding it increasingly harder to find a platform to engage with and educate others. PonkaBlog gives our writers a place to feel free to express a Conservative point-of-view without the threat of being “cancelled”.
Our articles are a bit on the long side, at least by today’s standards. They are also not “dumbed down” to make them easy for the uneducated, or lazy, to comprehend. There are plenty of places people can go if they’re looking for an easy read. PonkaBlog isn’t one of those places.
There’s too much incorrect and misleading information being spread over the Internet. So, we strive to be as accurate as possible. PonkaBlog only deals in facts, logic and reason. We don’t often speculate but when we do, we’re very clear that we’re making a guess.
We hope you’ll find PonkaBlog to be thought-provoking, informative and sometimes amusing. We don’t expect you to agree with everything you read. But, hopefully you’ll learn something, perhaps about yourself.
