Yes, he said that.

Yes, he said that.

First, I’ll ask you to “Name That Quote”. Can you do it? “There are no Christians, as far as I know, blowing up building. I am not aware of any Christian suicide bombers. I am not aware of any major Christian denomination that believes the penalty for apostasy is death. I have mixed feelings about the decline of Christianity, in so far as Christianity might be a bulwark against something worse.”

Second, we’ll try to accurately describe criminal suspects without mentioning their ethnicity, nationality, skin color and height. (Height? Really?)

Third, we’ll put the love of multiculturalism into practice.

Episode 125: The Paris Terror Attacks

Terrorism hits Paris again. (Reuters)

Terrorism hits Paris again. (Reuters)

In the early morning hours of Saturday, November 14th, ISIS terrorists attacked Paris, France. They did so from 7 different locations at the same time, including a theater where a concert was going on, and the soccer stadium where a game was going on, and French President Francois  Hollande was in attendance. When the shooting and bombing was done, 129 people had died. Paris went on lockdown, issuing the first curfew since the 1944 Nazi bombings, and they closed the borders.

These are my thoughts on this horrific tragedy.

Episode 4: ObamaCare Stands, First Look

I give my first look at what the Supreme Court’s decision on the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare(tm)) means. If you think there are places where government should just butt out of, you are not going to like what this bill let’s the government do.

A comment on a Facebook question posted by La Shawn Barber gives us a new perspective on how to deal with illegal immigrants.

You know those machines where you take the next number to be waited on? The government has one. It’s costs $19 million. Every year. Really.

And you know all those human interest stories that the media keep running to tell us that we really need ObamaCare? Do they compare to the 130,000 elderly patients in Britain that die every year so that costs can be kept down or beds can be freed up? Yup, 130,000. Every year. Really.

This show comes with a plea to both my listeners that, now that I have 4 episodes available, and that you know have some idea of what this podcast will be like, that you add a review in iTunes. Just go to the podcast page, pick a number of stars (let’s say 5, just for example), and write an honest (glowing, but honest) review. I’d appreciate it.
