Note to the Duggars: If Your Brand is Purity You Better be Pure

Last week In Touch magazine broke the story of Josh Duggar molesting some young girls when he was a young teenager. His parents handled the matter as a family matter. They talked to a friend in law enforcement but there was never any formal adjudication of this matter. The parents protected their son maybe to the detriment of his young victims. The Duggars show 19 Kids and Counting is on hiatus with the possibility of cancellation looming. Over the weekend the big question was would TLC keep the show on the air, but the sponsors prompted by the consumers are speaking loud and clear. They are jumping off the show like rats abandoning the Titanic. No sponsors no show. Ever since we met the Duggars we have been served a heaping helping of purity on all levels. Well, if purity is your brand you better be pure. Christians are not perfect they are just forgiven. Questioning the Duggars is not an attack on Christianity. They are human and their actions deserve to be questioned. I believe Josh Duggar was forgiven if he asked for it, but forgiven in the eyes of God, and not guilty in the eyes of man are two truly different things.

Mark Halperin’s interview with Ted Cruz…awkward or racist?


Mark Halperin was suspended from MSNBC a couple of years ago when he said the President was acting like a “dick”. At the time he also worked for Time magazine and they took no disciplinary actions. Cut to 2015 and this interview with presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz. Conservatives are calling his questions racist and Halperin has since apologized if he offended anyone. Share your thoughts.

Gangs Unite in Threats on the lives of Baltimore police?

The Baltimore Police are reporting there has been a credible threat made against them. Supposedly some gangs have united to “take out cops.” This threat comes on the day that Freddie Gray is being buried. If this is truth it is a frightening twist in this tragedy. It might be hard to prosecute a policeman when he kills a man it will not be hard to prosecute a gangbanger if he dares to shoot a cop.

What candidates connect to everyday Americans?

Who is the everyday American? Do you think you are? We all might think we fall under this wide umbrella, but if that is true how does a candidate connect with all of us? We all have our own set of problems and issues. So how do we determine who is the best candidate to address the myriad issues facing this nation. We are 80 weeks out from Election Day and so far we have heard a lot of Hillary bashing. There are 19 declared and undeclared GOP candidates and they agree on one thing, Hillary Clinton is the enemy, but will that take them to the White House? On the Democratic side we see Hillary Clinton is riding around in her Scoobie mobile eating at Chilpote in an effort to connect to the illusive everyday American. It is sad that every four years candidates on each side decide it is time to talk to the regular folks. Newsflash if the kept the conversation going they would not have such a difficult time connecting.

Mika Brzenski called Marco Rubio a boy…is this a problem?

This morning on Morning Joe they were discussing the generation differences between Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio. In making her point about Rubio’s youth she called him a “boy”. No one missed a beat but I remember when Barack Obama was running in 2008 the word boy would have sent the faithful over the edge. So is this not an issue when discussing Rubio? Share your thoughts.

President Obama at Selma…why it matters

bush and obama

Today is an important day. Fifty years ago a dedicated group of people crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge. It was not an event greeted by cheers, but by jeers. It has been described as Bloody Sunday, but today things are different. No they are not perfect but they are different. We have a black president. It is hard to believe that 50 years ago blacks in Alabama blacks could not vote and now a black man leads this nation. It is also noteworthy that former President Bush was in attendance. This is a day that we all have a right to be proud of what we have done and what we are doing. Please read the linked story there are great photos from the event.
