The debate surrounding whether or not we should take in the Syrian refugees has brought out the worst in both sides, lending itself to simplistic soundbite judgments and righteous indignation when others don’t agree. Is there any way to bring civility back to our debates, not just on this issue, but on all of them?
 

November 19, 2015 – Imagine

The philosophy of that 20th Century intellectual giant, John Lennon, has trickled down through the generations to give us this week’s Snowflake of the Week, Erika Meister. Erika has decided she knows what caused last Friday’s attacks in Paris, and her snowflakey decree is the solution – eliminate all religions. 

November 18, 2015 – Do Something

Creative blocks are painful – but I’m not going to let it stop me from taking action. Also, you get to find out why I’m not a morning show host.

November 17, 2015 – Moral Duty

Facing the Syrian Refugee Crisis, what is our moral obligation? Do we have a moral duty to bring these refugees to America?

November 16, 2015 – People

Never put politics ahead of people. Always put people ahead of politics. Always remember why we are fighting for these principles – it’s for the people.

November 11, 2015 – Snowflakes

As we have our first real snowfall of the season, you have to hear what the precious little snowflakes at Yale have been up to. It is, apparently, everyone else’s job to create a space of comfort and home for the snowflakes at Yale – and in a surprise revelation to the rest of the civilized world, it is NOT about creating an intellectual space at Yale.

Wait – what? 

Politico’s hit piece on Ben Carson – an attack basically made up from whole cloth and quietly edited in the night once the lies were discovered – is a clue to a larger narrative between good and evil in this country. How does Politico’s latest lie fit in to the larger context?

The latest battlefield for the left is in the war on teenage girls. Are we going to buy in to this latest salvo to victimize women in this country? More importantly, are we going to buy in to the mass delusion they are trying to force down our throats?

November 5, 2015 – Happiness

Are you happy? Is America? Can we be happy again?

November 4, 2015 – Heroes

Who are your heroes? Do you have any? Or have we lost our heroes? Is that why we’re so willing to slap a label on just about anyone who is famous and agrees with our agenda?
