Art and architecture

I think we can sometimes go overboard looking for ill intent in comment from “the other side”, whichever side that may be. Some conservatives did just that, in my opinion, over some comments about the Notre Dame fire.

The Supreme Court will be hearing 3 cases next session that will be part of a continuing effort in this country to reconcile the rights of various groups of sexual identities and preferences (groups that seem to be created daily) with the First Amendment right to freedom of religion.

“Uplanned” opening eyes

The movie “Unplanned” is doing quite well across the country, given its limited release. It is bringing the truth of the abortion industry to everyone, including many Planned Parenthood employees. It’s truly eye-opening and I recommend this exposé to anyone interested in the truth about abortion.

This episode I’ve got a new segment, “Letters from Auntie M”. It’s being voiced by a friend of mine from the Shire Network News days, the pseudonymous “Tom Paine”. For this segment, Auntie M talks about anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party.

Discrimination at Yale

It’s been 4 years since I first reported on Dan Price and his minimum wage of $70,000 per year for his company Gravity Payments. Has it stood the test of time?

Yale Law School got a little blowback from student groups when they dared let a conservative lawyer speak there. Just a month later, they caved, stopped offering financial support for students who for public service organizations guilty of thought crimes.

Still drinking the Kool-Aid?

This time out I’m talking about the release of Attorney General Bob Barr’s summary of the Mueller Report, what it says, and who lost the most with its release.

Winners:

  • On collusion: Trump.
  • On obstruction of justice: Toss-up

Losers:

  • On assurances that Trump was about to be impeached Real Soon Now: The left-leaning media, pundits, and politicos.

Listen in for my analysis of Barr’s summary.

And speaking of the media:

The crisis on the border is real

Colleges and universities are supposedly where free speech and association are encouraged. Well, I have an example of where the students were all for those until they realized that it meant freedom for everyone, and there were some groups for whom they simply couldn’t allow that.

The Border Patrol has its hands full, literally. The detention centers and courts that process illegal immigrants are not able to handle the surge of people coming across the border. But hey, it’s not like it’s a crisis or anything.

And, oh yes, kittens.

Jamie Shupe

Jamie Shupe, who became a transgender and got nationwide publicity when doing so, realized it was all a “sham” and has returned to being the man he was born as. I’ll talk about his journey there and back again. (But don’t expect that he’ll get the same media attention this time.)

It turns out that no matter how  you implement them, disincentives to work turn out pretty much the same way. In Finland, they compared traditional unemployment benefits with the Universal Basic Income for 2 years. I’ll discuss their findings.

How can we get health care costs down?

I have a story for both cat lovers and health care cost enthusiasts. Really? You’ll hear about trying to care for a sick cat shows how the free market can reduce those health care costs.

Enjoying Democrat privilege

Listener Mark has a better suggestion than the REINS Act for reducing the tentacles of the bureaucratic state; scrap it.

Have you noticed a difference in how Democrats and the media treat similar scandals regarding the two parties? I have, and here’s the latest example.

Baby Thomas was born recently to a father who finds amazing healing from him and a reason to live. Listen in to understand why.

Will we learn the lesson *this* time?

The Jussie Smollett attack story has been shown to be something…well, less than accurate. But that didn’t stop the pundits and politicians from making broad pronouncements about the state of the country, and Republicans in general, as soon as the accusations were made. It exposed (again) how much the media really wants this narrative to be true.

And Lara Logan, formerly of CBS News, agrees that the media doesn’t just vote Left; it skews its reports left. Guess we won’t be seeing here on a network anytime soon.

And denizens of New York City restaurants are shocked that prices are going up…after a minimum wage hike. Is anyone paying attention there?

The “Green New Deal”; unicorns and rainbows

The “Green New Deal”, put out by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, tips the hand of the Democratic party as one that is about as full of vision as a 6-year-old is; it’s more “ice cream and never-ending summer vacation” than it is a considered proposal.

This time out, I explain why this is such an awful proposal.
