The Media, Good, Bad and Often Ugly

Exodus 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. It probably started with your mother, most likely your parents. Other relatives, a grandparent perhaps, also contributed. Definitely in school you were taught. You tried it anyway and hurt people that you cared for. If we get caught on job applications we know bad things can happen. When you…

Whack-a-Mole: A conspiracy theory

Share

It is getting so that every election cycle a new grass roots movement pops up just like some whack-a-mole game. It started right after President Obama first took office in January 2009. Let’s start in Chicago when Rick Santelli called for a tea party to protest a liberal Obama agenda. It caught on. Soon tea party protests were being held…

The good, the bad, and planned parenthood

I’m sure you’ve heard this uproar about Planned Parenthood selling the parts of unborn babies, or fetuses depending on your views, and I’m sure many of you are appalled by the thought.

The magazine brought me into contact with the writings of Damon Linker, Pascal-Emanuel Gobry, Elizabeth Stoker Bruenig and others. They argue world events, politics and life using quotes and philosophical arguments…

Republican Debate – Election 2016 – Round 1

Share

It was staggering. Drama, humor, success and failure. Fox put together a phenomenal format with excellent questions and the candidates delivered. The most entertaining presidential debate I can recall. The Republicans are off to a good start. Trump performed as expected going down in flames to a watery grave before they even got started. His failure to commit to the…

First Republican Debate: The JV Team

Share

Winner: Carly Fiorina Losers: None Breakouts: Possibly Carly Fiorina, I didn’t see it happen for anyone else. The debate went smoothly and was well behaved. None of the awkward moments we saw in the last Obama/Romney debates. Each candidate had an opportunity to impress. Most were well practiced and ready for the questions which seemed tailored to give each candidate…

The Noble Abortion

Share

Recently, there have been some rather disturbing videos surrounding Planned Parenthood. I am sure you have heard or seen them. They are surreptitious videos of Planned Parenthood doctors and administrators discussing the sale and separation of baby (fetus) body parts. There are more to come but they have been temporarily blocked by a California court. The videos have brought the…
