Politician Deafness & Other Natural Phenomenon

By Shelli Dawdy Why do federal elected officials seem to be impervious to the objections of their constituents, specifically when those objections are voiced in large numbers? That phenomenon was very well illustrated by the drama that reached a crescendo on October 3, 2008. Congress passed the bailout bill (TARP) despite call ratios into Congressmen […] Continue reading

But when one looks at the “big picture”, the oil spill is dwarfed by the tsunami of red ink that promises to suck everyone into its wake.

Don’t Count On a Republican Congress To Save The Day

Charity By Any Other Name Does Not Smell as Sweet

Local churches are misguided in seeking government solutions. While, as Christians, we are called to care for the needy, Jesus did not teach people to give their money to the government. People are not being charitable if they are not giving from their heart, and government welfare programs take money from one citizen and give it to another. Continue reading

Bread and Circuses Are Fun – While They Last

The phrase “bread and circuses” originated in ancient Rome and a chilling description of the current state of our nation. It’s patently clear, when you look at our burgeoning national debt, that the plebs know, of a certainty, that they can vote themselves bread and circuses without limit and that the productive members of the American body politic cannot stop them.
