Duane’s Journey: Some Encouragement for the Next Adventure

Duane’s Journey: Some Encouragement for the Next Adventure

Duane Patterson is known to the nation as @Radioblogger or Generalissimo, Hugh Hewitt’s able and much-maligned producer. But to a bunch of friends across the nation called The Tribbles, Duane’s a friend and great guy. Duane informed us on his 7/27 Aftershow that the cancer, first diagnosed in 2012, and twice beaten, was back. To be precise, the Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma was back. Here is the full explanation: After the news had soaked in, the only appropriate response was a recording of encouragement, humor and well-wishes from a gaggle of Duane’s friends, many of whom are Tribbles. Our thoughts and prayers are with Duane as he fights this thing. Follow Duane’s journey and log comments at...

God and Limited Government

God and Limited Government

Part of making a coherent case for constitutional government involves sifting through parades of burning straw men.   When Nick Gillespie published a piece at Reason magazine, a magazine that sometimes fails to live up to its name, about Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s call for America to turn back to God, I could see the straw men from a mile away. Gillespie asserts that Jindal wants to mix politics and religion and that has to be bad. Now he doesn’t lose as many points as a leftist would because he didn’t pull out the First Amendment canard. But he’s got enough errors in logic that it cannot go unanswered. The first problem with Gillespie’s screed is the inherent assumption that our nation turning to God and the cause of limited government are mutually exclusive. Gillespie writes: No, it’s not time to “turn back to God,” especially when it comes to politics and public policy. What ails the government is not a deficit of religiosity but a nearly complete failure to...

No Bibles, No Peace

No Bibles, No Peace

Recently, there was this story about the Navy removing Bibles from hotel rooms on its military bases.   The Freedom From Religion Foundation had complained about them, as it is wont to do. The Bibles are returned, for now, while the Navy reviews its “religious accommodation policies with regard to the placement of religious materials.” But it made me think – suppose we really had freedom from religion? What would life be like? First and foremost, I think, there would be no peace. Peace, as we know it, is a Judeo-Christian concept. Everyone wants peace, from the peacenik to the Pentagon. The secular left says it believes in peace. My generation, the Love generation, believed in peace – “Peace and love,” “Peace, bro,” anti-war activism, even peace through justice. We raise our children to love peace and to be peaceful. Our military men and women believe in peace. I’m sure there’s nothing they would like more than a peaceful world. They fight, ultimately, to obtain and keep the peace. America...

Another Chapter in the Democrats’ War on Women

Another Chapter in the Democrats’ War on Women

Democrats continue to misrepresent the Supreme Court decision on Hobby Lobby and the Obamacare contraception mandate (which it needs to be stressed is NOT actually written into the law) as part of the never-ending Republican war on women. Leftists are piling on and calling for the deaths of actual women in what is the ignored Democrat war on women. Case #1: Holly Fisher, the wife of a military vet, is a vocal conservative. In the aftermath of the Supreme Court decision to uphold the right of Hobby Lobby and other loosely-held companies to be exempted from the Obamacare contraception mandate (which it needs to be stressed is NOT actually written into the law), Holly decided to post a picture of herself in a pro-life t-shirt holding a Chick-fil-a cup standing outside of a Hobby Lobby. ATTENTION LIBERALS: do NOT look at this picture. Your head will most likely explode. #HobbyLobby #UniteBlue pic.twitter.com/uAIZji25vS — Holly Fisher (@HollyRFisher) July 1, 2014 And of course, the Left reacted by cheering her on and chanting, “You...

Why Do We Celebrate Easter?

Why Do We Celebrate Easter?

Today is Easter Sunday, the most important day on the Christian calendar because it’s the most important day in history.   Why, you ask? Because it’s the day Jesus Christ arose from the grave. It’s the day He conquered sin and the grave. And it’s the day that proved to the world that Jesus is the Son of God. If you didn’t believe that He is the Messiah after all of the miracles, how about the fact that He was killed in the most humiliating way possible, on a cross, naked for all to see, only to rise again on the third day? He told His disciples that He would be crucified and would rise again on the third day. He foretold of Judas’ betrayal and Peter’s three-fold denial of Him in the lead up to the crucifixion. And then of course, the fact that Jesus made Himself known after the Resurrection to those who who did not believe Him beforehand should be a huge tipoff. He showed off...

Dumpster baby in Texas saved by hero maintenance man

Dumpster baby in Texas saved by hero maintenance man

By Jeannie DeAngelis Texas maintenance worker Carlos Michel heard faint whimpering sounds coming from a dumpster at a nearby apartment complex. Michel said that what he thought he heard were the muffled cries of a kitten or perhaps a dying animal. As he neared the dumpster, the man was sure that whoever or whatever was whimpering inside was struggling. Leaning into the blue dumpster, Carlos grabbed hold of a white plastic trash bag, pulled it out, placed it on the ground, and ripped it open to find a newborn baby boy inside. The infant, with umbilical cord still attached, was cold and purple, but still alive. “I almost had a heart attack,” Michel said. After this modern-day Moses was plucked from the oversized ashcan, paramedics arrived to take him to Houston’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, where the small babe was reported to be in good shape.
