In Our Society Anything Goes Except Christianity

We live in a society that pretty much accepts anything. We are willing to fight for the rights of all people, but is that really the truth? Why is it when someone expresses an opinion based on biblical principles that person is ostracized. Case in point Kirk Cameron. Cameron said that a man should be the leader of the family and that wives should be submissive and let him lead. This is an opinion that many people do not agree with and they have the right to that opinion, but why do they feel the need to vilify his? If you are not a Christian than his way is not your way but there are people who share his opinion and they deserve the respect and protection that we freely give to others who do not share conventional beliefs.

“My Nigga” has no place at the White House Correspondents Dinner

Really did I hear him right. Did he actually call POTUS “my nigga”. Yes he did. Larry Wilmore called President Obama “my nigga”. Was it bold and funny? No it was inappropriate. The whole concept of Wilmore is black and so is the president so it’s fine. No it is not. If Seth Meyers said it the Twitter world would be on fire. Al Sharpton would say give me a microphone. This was not cool. Share your thoughts.

Is Monica Lewinsky fair game or is it time to let her alone?

Most Americans have the opportunity to make mistakes and move on. The exploits of youth are allowed to be a part of the past, but if you are Monica Lewinsky you are not given that privilege. She will forever be associated with President Bill Clinton. She is the one he declared to the world that he had never had sex with that woman. She was victimized by the press in the “90s and now she is quickly become the political football of the 2016 campaign, but is this fair? Should the sins of Bill Clinton be used against Hillary Clinton? Lewinsky was a young woman when she had an affair with Clinton. He has been able to move forward and be regarded as an elder statesman. He has had the opportunity for his life to move forward, but she is forever trapped in the role of a young vixen. Donald Trump and his spokespeople have openly discussed bringing up Lewinsky. Will Lewinsky ever be released from her past or will this affair haunt her to the grave? Share your thoughts.

Should there be a John Wayne day?

The California State Legislature was considering a John Wayne Day but that was nixed after comments fromm 1971 Playboy magazine article emerged. Some have deemed these statements racist and some are saying it is political correctness. Read the statements and weigh in. Share your thoughts.

1.’We can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks. I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.’
2.’I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them, if that’s what you’re asking. Our so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.’
3.’When you allow unlawful acts to go unpunished, you’re moving toward a government of men rather than a government of law; you’re moving toward anarchy. And that’s exactly what we’re doing. We allow dirty loudmouths to publicly call policemen pigs; we let a fella like William Kunstler make a speech to the Black Panthers saying that the ghetto is theirs, and that if police come into it, they have a right to shoot them. Why is that dirty, no-good son of a bitch allowed to practice law?’
4.’I don’t feel guilty about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves. Now, I’m not condoning slavery. It’s just a fact of life, like the kid who gets infantile paralysis and has to wear braces so he can’t play football with the rest of us.’
5.’The academic community has developed certain tests that determine whether the blacks are sufficiently equipped scholastically. But some blacks have tried to force the issue and enter college when they haven’t passed the tests and don’t have the requisite background.’

Laremy Tunsil is the definition of a cautionary tale

Laremy Tunsil is now a Miami Dolphin. He went 13th in the NFL draft. He had hopes of going earlier, but his hopes were dashed when shortly before the draft someone posted a video of him with a gas mask bong. He looked like he was feeling no pain and having a good time. He like so many people chronicle all aspects of their lives and share their exploits with their friends, but what happens when friends become enemies? They post something that they know will hurt you at a time that can change the course of your life…just ask Laremy Tunsil.

If Hillary Clinton is playing the woman card than what card is The Donald playing?


Tuesday Night Donald Trump won 5 primaries, but he decided to take some shots at Hillary Clinton. They will be facing each other in the general election. Its politics so shots will be taken but to reduce Clinton’s record to the “woman’s card” is ridiculous even coming from Trump. She is a lawyer, she had been a US senator and the Secretary of State. It is dismissive and sexist to discount her achievements. Yes he has a right to critique her performance, but to reduce them to nothing and to say if he were a man she would only have 5% of the vote is pure Trump nonsense. One is left to wonder what card is Trump playing? The I’m rich and I am used to getting what I want card, the my daddy gave me a million dollars to start my company card, the I don’t mind race baiting card or the I love to insult women and minority cards. He has so many cards in his deck we are in for a brutal election season as he deals from the bottom of his deck.

Ted Cruz just gave Carly Fiorina her ticket on the Titanic

Is Ted Cruz living in a parallel universe? He has to be and in that world he is inches away from winning the GOP nomination for the presidency, but here in the real world he is losing, losing badly. So to see him anointing a running mate today is bizarre. Maybe he is not the only one that resides in this other world. Carly Fiorina is a card carrying citizen of that world. If she was not she would not be jumping on board the Cruz train. At what point does a candidate accept the real world reality that this is not his season. Obviously, Cruz is not there yet he still sees a path but it is over. He is a passenger on the Titanic and today he invited a buddy to join him.
