Of Guilt and Gratitude

GuiltThumbby Deana Chadwell
Often when I have conversations with my more liberal friends and relatives I am perplexed at the refusal to engage in factual exchanges, at the personal ferocity involved, and at the deep confusion about Christianity that usually seeps to the surface just before the final wig-out.

Redskins, Braves, Indians, and Idiots

RedskinsThumbby Timothy Lane
As a sports fan, I follow major league baseball, but inevitably I do become aware of major events and controversies in other sports. (Of course, my knowledge of them is often vague; in the Penn State scandal I thought for a while that Paterno was the perpetrator because that’s why they all talked about.) More » • (903 views)

The Case for Morality and God

GodAndMoralityThumbby Glenn Fairman
While moderating a website that has a preponderance of Conservatives and Christians posting, I came upon a post by a fellow I shall refer to as Captain X. The Gentleman stated that he was a commissioned West Point officer who had served overseas and had now returned to civilian life. More » • (1403 views)

JusticeThumbby Deana Chadwell
The truth is I really don’t want to talk about this – I think I’ll scream if I have to hear the names T_____ M_____ and G_____ Z_____ again. More » • (1219 views)

The Political Gospel of Pain

RedemptionThumbby Glenn Fairman
“Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn.” –C.S. Lewis  •  I have been getting more than a few e-mails as of late whose gist runs in the vein of intense dissatisfaction at what has occurred since last November. More » • (1594 views)

Amazing Gracelessness

CheSaviorby Mark Tooley
(The following article originally appeared in the American Spectator and is re-printed with permission.) That fraction of the federal government closed during the infamous shutdown is now back, so the angels in heaven can sing again. More » • (1075 views)

Hope and Change

RealHopeThumbby Deana Chadwell
Millions of folk – both dead and alive – voted for that five years ago. Hope and change. Well, Obama’s been long on change and way short on hope, but I’m beginning to believe that hope is alive, well, and impatient for us to catch up. More » • (579 views)

My Father’s Book

MrFairmanby Glenn Fairman
My father was born on Nov. 18th 1933 to Fred and Mary Fairman in the Los Angeles area. They have both since passed on but their marriage produced seven children: My father Fred Jr., My lovely Aunt Marylyn, My handsome uncle Mike, My uncle Dennis the Marine, and “Little Dorothy” who introduced me to the Beatles and pop music when she lived with us for a time.

A 12-step Program to American Recovery — Part V

TwelveStepsThumb2by Deana Chadwell
Part V – Of Salads and Dysfunction • It was Abraham Lincoln who said, “A nation divided against its self cannot stand.” He was speaking in a context of civil war so his words carried that weight. The statement demands consideration in today’s context as well, and it brings me to my fifth step in re-establishing an America of promise – we have to start thinking of ourselves as Americans first.

Random Thoughts and McCarthyism is a Good Thing

RandomThoughtsThumb2by Brad Nelson
Zen usually means liberal-flaky. Never mistake me for a so-called “crunchy con.” But when you’re surfing the web, are you as tired as I am of websites that basically mug you as you enter them? Instead of a Zen-like experience, it’s more like Mortal Combat as you fight back all the things that get between you and where you want to go. More » • (1709 views)

The Synoptic Media: Speaking Lies on Behalf of Power

NewsMediaPoisonThumbby Timothy Lane
I refer to the major news sources as the synoptic media, a term I adapted from Biblical studies. Just as the synoptic gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke are very similar (though not identical) in basic content and viewpoint (and very different from John), so the NBC/CBS/ABC/CNN/PBS combination More » • (2427 views)

Israel and the Carthaginian Peace

WastelandThumbby Glenn Fairman
The great Roman historian Livy informs us that during the times of the Third Punic War, Cato the Elder ended every session of the Roman Senate with the phrase, “Carthago Delenda Est:” Carthage must be destroyed. More » • (2074 views)
