What unites Americans? Our flag? Our pledge of allegiance? Our freedoms? Our common humanity? Nothing, it seems, unites Americans any more. We have become so ideologically (irrationally) polarized that not even the most heinous tragedies can bring human hearts together even for a moment. Two weeks ago police in Hattiesburg, stopped a vehicle on a […]

What roles will social issues like abortion, same-sex marriage, and religious freedom play in the 2016 presidential race? On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court decided abortion was a legal right, thus settling the debate … right! In January of this year an estimated 600,000 people marched in Washington to protest the legalization of abortion. […]

To paraphrase Will Rogers, I don’t belong to an organized religion; I’m a Christian. Sunday we visited a church and listened to a sermon about the sin of offense, i.e. hanging onto being offended. Everybody is offended today about something, and in our litigious society if someone is offended enough he or she will sue […]
Did you read about the boatload of Americans fleeing the U.S. to go to … well, name a country, any country. America is one of the few nations in the world no one is fleeing. America is one of the few nations in the world people would literally risk their lives and lives of loved […]
We have at least 14 more months of presidential political campaigns and primaries in the Republican Party. How many will run for the GOP nomination? Nobody knows. Democrats don’t really care. They’ll enjoy watching GOP candidates tearing down and maligning fellow Republicans until the RNC selects a survivor to run against Hillary. Three Republicans have […]
Buzzwords like “discrimination” are interesting, because they nearly always cut one-way. In today’s America, “protected classes” can sue individuals and businesses for discrimination; but individuals and businesses cannot protect themselves from those who discriminate against them. The past two weeks “discrimination” has replaced “racist” as the word used to vilify anyone challenging the “rights” of […]
“And I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. And authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.” Revelation […]
In an interview with the Huffington Post, President Obama said, “We take him at his word when he said that it wouldn’t happen during his prime ministership, and so that’s why we’ve got to evaluate what other options are available to make sure that we don’t see a chaotic situation in the region.” Who is […]
What we don’t know can hurt us. Most folks are busy living their lives and making ends meet. We’re concerned about family, friends, jobs, health, and just old-fashioned living. But, there are sinister forces willing to sacrifice ‘the rest of us’ for their own ideological goals. We’d best pay attention. Victor Frankl was a survivor […]
Have you noticed? Even though your relationships with friends, family, and colleagues remain the same, supportive, and cordial, something has changed in American society. This is particularly noticeable in the South, the home of hospitality. America has become a nation of ‘us’ and ‘them.’ The South is renown for courtesy and hospitality. We say “yes […]
If you hadn’t heard by now, you haven’t been paying attention. The story is the lead and the rage. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said, “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America.” Giuliani continued, “He doesn’t […]
One of the latest progressive strategies among the elite in politics, media, and academia is to deny the roles God and religion have played in our nation’s history. When I was growing up we honored George Washington and Abraham Lincoln as two of our nation’s best presidents. Their pictures hung in our elementary classrooms over […]
On Fox News Sunday recently, Lt. General Michael Flynn (Ret.), former Director of Defense Intelligence Agency, said the Obama administration has no strategy for fighting Islamic extremism. Current and former members of the intelligence community agree with Flynn who says White House officials reject intelligence provided to them and reject recommendations based on that intelligence.
