The State of The Union Is…?



Download MP3

 


I’ve made it clear that when people tell me what the believe, religiously speaking, I almost never believe them. That is doubly so when it happens to be a politician telling me about their faith. These are people who by nature, manipulate truth and speak in terms and phrases that are calculated to make it seem as they said exactly what you wanted to hear them say.

So whether it’s Donald Trump or Bill Clinton carrying a big black Bible into a church on a Sunday and the camera’s just “happen” to catch it, I am unimpressed and more likely as not you can count me among those who do not actually believe that the apparent religious awakening is real.

My main issue with people who have to tell me about their faith, and usually about somebody else’s faith is wrong, is that there almost never any reference to the actual authorities on said faith system.

My other question is simply this: How does a guy go to the top of politics in his State, knowing full well that he lives and works in a time when EVERYBODY in politics has their past examined with a microscope, become governor of a Southern State with nobody raising his past until he speaks out about his support of abortion? Within hours of saying – or mis-saying – whatever it is that he has interpreted his faith to mean about abortion, he’s in hot water for something that has literally been out there for more than thirty years.

So as divided as we are told we are each and every day, how is it that “The State of Our Union” can be “strong?”

The Travel Ban Ruling



NOTES: I had a show completely prepped and outlined. It was a great show. It was a show that would have made you laugh, and cry and rejoice.

In The Line of Duty

If you thought that all the drama and angst over the 2016 election with its divided country and confusing rhetoric was over, stand by. The real political nonsense is just getting started. Over the next four year we are going to see allegations and investigations that will make the Benghazi stuff look tame. And each and every time someone says “That ain’t right,” it will be met with the excuse that “You did it to Hillary and Obama.”

Can you imagine what the next 50 years is going to look like with this back and forth tit-for-tat nonsense? It’s like a Star Trek episode where the guy who is black on the left side keeps chasing the guy who is black on the right side through time and space. All the country really wants is to have government that isn’t sticking its nose into every corner of our lives and taking all of our money, but instead what we get is The Magnificent Bickersons and more and more consolidation of power and authority.

Yay us.

Among the issues that the Military is facing is the question of whether or not suicides are to be considered “in the line of duty” or not. This is one of those sure to divide people issues, mainly because of the varying religious beliefs about the act of suicide and the general social phobias we have about talking about it.
