Tom Martz on Truck Driving

Play

This is our special truck driving edition of Home Front.  On this show we answer many of the questions you may have been wondering about truck drivers and the trucking industry, but never knew who to ask.

We talk about the myriad of new regulations and how they impact how our goods get from Point A to Point B.

On this show, we interview Tom Martz.  Tom is one of the founders of the Locke and Smith Foundation and comes to us today to discuss what’s happening to the truck driving industry.

Truck Driving

It annoys me when I see a truck driving about 6 feet behind my rear bumper.  The law of physics would dictate that we still will arrive at our destinations at about the same time!   Yet, trucks used to be the gentlemen of the highways.  Now there are some who can’t even speak English!

Anyone who drives on the highway can share plenty of stories of what we’ve seen truck do….but most of us have no idea what’s going on inside the cab.  The new laws and the new fellow-truck drivers have industry and the reputation of the trucks on the roads.

My husband used to drive a truck, so this topic is near and dear to me.  It was like having a permanently-installed lobbyist built into my house at all times. It’s amazing what we can learn when married to someone who has a strong opinion!

So we did a show to talk about what’s happening out there on the road.  I hope you find this as helpful as I did. Continue reading

Courts Cannot Make Laws!

So many people are fearful that the US Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade.  We are seeing reactions from many states to define what their policies should be just in case that happens.

A few states are acknowledging that it is the proper place of government to protect innocent life.  Other states are going as fast as they can to make sure babies can be destroyed up until the minute they are born.  New York and Virginia are examples of states that have lurched far to the left.   On this video, the legislator shows us a glimpse of shame.  You can just see her embarrassment because her conscience is telling her that it’s wrong.

Institute on the Constitution – Michael Peroutka

Play

If you’ve been watching politics for a while as I have you know there are plenty of reasons to become discouraged.  Yet, we have good answers for the hope that is in us.

Today we interview Michael Peroutka.  Michael is a lawyer from Maryland and the founder of the Institute on the Constitution. He once held a position in the United States Department of Health and Human Services and was the Constitution Party candidate for president in 2004.

As an added bonus, we play three songs for you that Michael wrote and recorded.  On this episode, you’ll get to hear my DJ skills!

Culture Wars

This is a photo from a previous Mother’s Day.  Isn’t it nice that despite all of our Country’s wrangling, we can still agree that mothers are important?

It is wrong when the government passes laws to put one class of people above another.  You’d think with all the complications with budgets, crime and immigration the legislatures would be busy enough working to move us forward.  Proposals in both State and Federal governments are not focused on real problems, but rather on what people do in the privacy of their homes.  If people were acting outrageously in public, I can imagine it being a priority bill, but since when do we need new laws for people doing something nobody sees?  One’s behavior in the bedroom should not precipitate a governmental event.

Laws pertaining to deviant behavior are designed to make a segment of our society feel affirmed and validated (not the purpose of government).  They also are designed with sharp teeth for those who want to harass others in a court of law and force societal acceptance of diviancy.  Laws can have an impact on our practices through fear of lawsuits, not because of newly found moral convictions.

E. Michael Jones – Culture Wars

Play

If you haven’t figured it out yet, we’re in a culture war. On our show today we talk about Notre Dame, how cities are destroyed, sex education and more. This show is for the purpose of sharing with you what you can do about it.

On our show today, we have E. Michael Jones, the editor of Culture Wars magazine, the author of numerous books, and a frequent lecturer.

Fish Sandwiches – Troy Schmidt

Play

On today’s show we interview Troy Schmidt.  Troy was at the center of a crisis a few years ago when some people complained about  a high school football team having a chaplain.  He is an accomplished writer for television and film, including the Mickey Mouse Club.  He was the writer for “Hermie and Friends” children’s video series and he comes to us today to talk about his newest book called Fish Sandwiches.

If you’ve never heard about Jesus feeding more than 5,000 people with five fish and two loaves of bread, you’re in for a real treat today!

Using Government Against Political Enemies

 

The purpose of government is to protect our rights.  For this to work, we all need to play fair.  Regardless of who’s in power, we should all demand that our government stay on it’s original duty.  It sickens me to watch members of our Congress, who are supposed to be making and repealing laws, conduct hearings to shame and humiliate those who are testifying.

When I was the chairman of a committee in the Missouri House, my goal was to allow the witness to explain why a proposed bill was either good or bad.  I kept our committee on the topic at hand.  When I watch the members of the US House, many of them put on theatrics and disrespecting the witnesses. It is bad enough to make one wonder why anyone would testify on anything.  These bad actors are ruining the dignity and decorum of our government.

Pro Life Questions Juda Myers

Play

We’ve all heard many different theories on how to stop abortion, but on our show today, we get to the root of the problem.

Instead of fighting over how to pass new laws that get all tangled up in the courts, we talk about solutions that get to the heart!

If you’re interested in learning about real answers, this show will change your thinking.

On our show today, we interview Juda Myers.  Juda is the founder and president of Choices 4 life – an organization established as a way to promote and restore honor and dignity to women and children of rape conception through assault or incest.

Pro-Life Questions

This is me with my granddaughter.  All life is precious. 
If you agree, we need to rethink why so many proposed
“Pro-life laws” have exceptions.   Every one of those exceptions is a baby!
When will we say, “No!  We don’t kill other humans!”?

 

WHAT YOU CAN DO…

1.) Get informed about the harm done by the “rape” exception.  Listen to our show today.  Share our newsletter and this podcast with someone who may need it.  You can hear our show here.
