The March For Life 2018

The March For Life in 2018 was a major event, not the least because it was the first time a sitting US President addressed the crowd via live video. You’d never guess that by the media coverage.

Nor would those participants be invited to the (alleged) Women’s March the next day. That march is less about women and more about politics.

And Matt Walsh lines up the excuses for keeping abortion legal with keeping slavery legal. They line up very closely.

It’s episode 200!

It’s here; episode 200! And what an extravaganza it is.

I have an interview with D. J. McGuire. He’s a co-host of The More Perfect Union podcast, one of my favorites. I wanted to speak with D. J. because he has moved from being a conservative Republican to a conservative Democrat. Contradiction in terms, you say? It didn’t used to be. When I moved to Georgia, Sam Nunn was one such animal. In today’s political climate, however, it’s certainly an endangered specie. I talked with him about his conservative bona fides, why he switched, whether his views have changed, and what would cause him to switch back. It’s a fascinating discussion.

And I have feedback from 5 listeners, including a voice mail. (See, it really does work!) I’ll be answering their questions as part of this episode.

So thanks for joining me for the longest episode ever (over 56 minutes!) of one of the shortest political podcasts out there. I hope it gets you to consider this.

Next stop, the Senate

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is supported by 74% of Americans, and 77% of women. Then why did it pass on a party-line vote in the House of Representatives, and why does it face a filibuster in the Senate?

Because, if it could save just one life (or, in this case, 10,000), who could be against it? The answer, of course, isn’t moral or ethical; it’s political.

The Nazis are restless.

I’ve got 3 topics to discuss this week, one of which was suggested by a listener. (Yes, you can influence the topics covered!)

The violent extremes on both sides need to be condemned. But one side is more consistently doing that.

There’s a country out there taking the lead in the eradication of Downs Syndrome. It sounds like a medical breakthrough! But dig a little deeper, and it’s not that what you think it is.

A study came out regarding the transgendered in the military. The problem was, it studied the effects of a policy that no one is proposing. Well, at least they’re wasting their own money.

This man doesn’t want Christians in government

As a society, we have been told that the best sort of sex education in schools are ones that were contraception-focused, and that free contraception in schools reduced teen pregnancy. A new study out of England is casting some doubt on this assumption.

It seems like some folks (like Senator Bernie Sanders) would like to bring the idea of a religious test for government office back into vogue. They’d like to make sure that either you’re not of a particular religion, or at least are someone who doesn’t really take that particular religion too seriously.

Episode 154: #AllBlackLivesMatter

When discussing the killings of blacks by cops, sometimes the subject of black-on-black murder comes up. In my experience, this is shot down as a “distraction”.

Let’s look at the numbers and see what a “distraction” it really is. And there’s another statistic that doesn’t come up in these discussions that puts all of these other issues to shame.

Democrats: Keep abortion safe, legal, and frequent.

Democrats: Keep abortion safe, legal, and frequent.

Last episode, I talked about why I’m voting for Donald Trump; because of the importance of the choice of Supreme Court justices. Here’s a closer look at one of the details as to why, and it goes more into why we’ll need to vote the platform rather than the person. When it comes to funding abortion, the Democrats simply aren’t pro-choice.

When Robert Dear shot and killed people in a Planned Parenthood clinic, the broad brushes came out. (Funny how they got put away quickly when the San Bernardino shooters turned out to be Middle Eastern and Muslim.) An article I posted on the Google+ page, claiming that the shooter and PP were doing essentially the same thing, got a reader to comment. Here’s what he said, and my response to it.

Dealing with the fallout, Dan Price

Dealing with the fallout, Dan Price

I came across an article that described one man’s transition to pro-choice, and I have to say, it’s persuasive. Let’s take a listen to his reasons, and see if you are convinced.

(And then let’s all exhale. You’ll understand when you listen to the episode.)

Dan Price of Gravity Payments set a minimum wage of $70K/year and dropped his pay to that level. He was hailed as a hero 4 months ago, before any fallout from the change had even occurred. Well, some things have fallen out, so let’s revisit Dan and see how his decision has played out.

Another rerun

Another rerun

More free stuff, and making the eeevil rich pay for it. The State of the Union Address was a rerun of so many other speeches by Democratic presidents. So then, what is the state of the State of the Union Address?

There are some extreme medical circumstances that cause women to choose abortion. The latest is really pushing the envelope on the definition of “extreme”.

Harvard professors advised the Obama campaign on many things, including health care. Now that they have Obamacare(tm), their reaction to it is notable.

Episode 100 is coming up in a month or so. I’d like to get your thoughts on how this podcast has made a difference in your thoughts, or how you’ve made a difference in others, and celebrate 100 episodes with your voices. E-mail me at considerthis@ctpodcasting.com, or call 267-CALL-CT-0, 267-225-5280, and let’s hear how you have considered this.
