Chickens
Play

You might think “What can be so interesting about chickens?” It’s not about chickens. This is a show where we talk about how municipalities operate and make decisions. Just like with parenting, any government has the ability to overpower it’s citizens. No one can dispute the power of the sword, especially when the government is bigger and stronger than the indivudual. But does might make right?

On this episode we interview Patrick Stovall, the gentleman who is organizing a petition drive to create a law allowing citizens to have chickens. We also hear from Cathryn Davis, an agronomist who comments on her own experience with chickens and her municipality.

Our own city provided us with several examples recently of how a governing body can suddenly shift from being friendly to being hostile toward freedom. Our liberties are always vulnerable, but so much more vulnerable when we have a governing body that has fallen into the “group think” syndrome. So on this show today, you will hear a lot about the chicken ordinance, but please listen to the real issue which is our ability to govern ourselves and how bigger government ideology insults the intelligence of the citizens.

Who Killed the American Family? That’s the title of the book we discuss with author, Phyllis Schlafly on today’s episode. Phyllis invited me into her radio station to delve into the details of what has ruined the peace and serenity of the family for our entire country.

Don’t think you are spared just because you are doing fine. We’ve all been affected in one way or another. If you are a taxpayer or live on the planet with other people, you are affected.

Who’s going to teach the next generation?

Shaunti Feldhahn

Recently I was invited to join Phyllis Schlafly on her radio show, Eagle Forum Live.  We had a lot of fun interviewing Shaunti Feldhahn as we discussed her newest book called, The Good News About Marriage

We’ve all heard divorce statists that just aren’t true. Our guest, Shaunti Feldhahn comes to inform us of the positive news that the divorce rate is not anywhere near the 50% that is frequently reported.  According to our own census numbers more like 72% are still married to their original spouse.  Many of those who are no longer married had a happy marriage for decades and their spouse is now passed away. Todays episode will inspire, encourage and contains some of the highlights of that interview we did on Eagle Forum Live.
