Alternate Realities: What If Pickett’s Charge Had Succeeded?

Have you ever wondered what would have happened if one point in history was changed?  It's those defining points in the world that make all of the difference.  Take, for instance, Pickett's Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg.  It was a total disaster for the South.  Nine infantry divisions, led by Major General George Pickett, Brigadier General J. Johnston Pettigrew, and Major General Isaac R. Trimble, were ordered to take the Union Army after making an assault of nearly a mile of open ground.  As you can imagine, the result was a total failure and the South never truly recovered - psychologically - from their defeat.  Of the 12,500 men that made the charge, over 50% became casualties.  But what if things were different?  What if they actually had succeeded in their goal and crushed the Army of the Potomac?  Things might have been different...

Alternate Reality: What If The UK Won The American Revolution?

United KingdomCan you imagine what life would be like if Britain had actually won the American Revolution?  They came close to it, as it was, but what would have been the outcome of the world if Britain actually defeated the Colonists and regained control over them?  This type of scenario is only speculative, obviously, but things might have been quite a bit different for Americans today had this outcome been different.  Here are five possible outcomes if history had changed. Are they for the better or worse?  Alternate time can only tell… Read more…

What If God Added Five New Commandments?

The Ten CommandmentsIt came to me in a dream the other night.  What if God came down and had five more Commandments to add to the list of ten?  I am not trying to be blasphemous or uncaring about other people’s religions; this isn’t a “joke post” or a way to get people riled up.  I’m serious. If God wanted to add some amendments or additions onto His laws, what would they be?  What focus would He have in the world we live in today?  If this post enrages you or you take offense to it, maybe it IS directed at you and you should take a hard look at your thoughts about what God “wants”.  All of these statements are altruistic.  If God did write down five more commandments, I think it might go something like this… Read more…

What If Fox News Made Movie Reviews?

Faux NewsWelcome to the world of “What Ifs?” We’re going to look at the harsh, fake reality if Fox News actually controlled our movie reviews.  I am not trying to suggest anything derogatory about Fox’s “Fair and Balanced” news umm…well, I guess it is “news” coverage, but they do have a way of separating reality with commentary.  Somehow, that commentary always leans one way, too, so I can’t imagine it would be any different when they reported on the movies that people go to see.  Here is a look at what some of those reviews might be if they were to talk about our very favorite series.

What If: The GOP Destroyed The Unions?

Will The Unions Be Broken?What is happening to America? Seriously.  The wealthiest two percent of our nation is going to get tax cuts at a point where they will save $70 BILLION dollars each year and conservative governors are stating we have to heel the middle class union workers because they make too much money!  Their response to giving the wealthy more money is that it will be an incentive to hire more people.  Seventy BILLION dollars.  That means, they can hire an additional 2.8 million people each year with a wage of $24,000 ($11.54/hour) and reduce unemployment by 10% on their own.  But they are going after Union workers now and pitting middle class people against each other.  So what if it really happens?
