• Covid Stimulus

    We hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

     

    “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it!”

    This last COVID relief bill is flagrantly off topic and a huge disappointment to us!  I am not in Congress, but if anyone in Congress wants to listen, here’s how I would write the “COVID Relief” bill:

    1.)  We need relief from oppression!  Let’s start there.  The governmental chains around our hands have caused great damage to businesses and individuals.  We need fewer laws, not more laws.  It is inappropriate for a government to destroy a small business and then throw some money at it thinking it can make it all better.

    2.)  Instead of sending out checks, we should have an “Income Tax Holiday”, so the citizens would get the same amount of relief, but without all the hassles and inaccuracies of printing and mailing checks.  Nothing would get lost and dead people would not receive anything.  Only those who are working would get the bonus.  It would put money into their bank accounts in the form of greater take home pay and help to “starve the beast”.  If the government has plenty of money to pass out, it certainly has too much money!

    We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving !

     

    Our Nation is in the middle of a custody battle.  Both mom and dad are fighting over who gets the children.  It’s not over until the judges rule.  While we would all like to see this over, we can’t call it just yet.   Regardless of Joe Biden acting like he won, those closest to the epicenter know the election fraud is beyond anyone’s imagination.  Here are some examples from Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania.

    This fight is forcing people to study the Constitution.  As we study it more in depth, we are discovering that there are rules in place for how to handle this situation.  It appears that if the rules are followed, our current President, Donald Trump, will be fairly elected to a second term.

    But the struggle is not about Donald Trump.  The fight is for fair and honest elections.  If we fail at this, we will fail as a fair and honest country.

  • Philip Kwiatkowski – Pacific Garden Mission

    Play

    Have you ever sat at a red light and watched someone standing in front of you with a cardboard sign saying, “Veteran” or “Pregnant” and wondered what you’re supposed to do?  On today’s show we visit with Paul Kwiatkowski, President of Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago, Illinois, the oldest homeless shelter in the Country.

  • Beggars

    The hardest part is that most people feel like they want to do something, but we don’t know what to do.  Regardless of what’s on the sign, when we see a beggar, we see a story……and a story that needs to be told.  There’s not enough time at a busy intersection to ask questions, so people can either pull over and talk, or they can continue to flow with the traffic.  There’s nothing like a beggar in the most obvious locations to force us to engage with the issue.

    America is the most wealthy and generous Country in history.  We are so wealthy, we get asked for money all the time.  Most of us who shop are routinely asked if we want to donate so some cause.  Yet, even with all our benevolent efforts, it seems like the problem is getting bigger everyday.

  • How to Stop the Steal

    As they used to say in the House of Representatives,  “Keep your powder dry!”  There is officially no winner of the Presidential election just yet.  The judicial system is dealing with this moment of national confusion.  We must remember that the media has no authority to declare a winner.  Anyone in America can deliver an acceptance speech!  

    Let’s wait and see what happens next.  We could be into December before we have a final count and a true winner can be OFFICIALLY DECLARED.

    The United States Constitution orders every state to hold an election for the President every four years.  However, it gives states the freedom in the details of how the election is conducted.  We’d like to presume the officials charged with the duty of conducting these elections are motivated by fairness and honesty.  Sadly, that is not true.

  • Witches and Puritans

     

    This picture is from when I visited the Monument to the Forefathers in Plymouth, Massachusetts.  We should all be inspired that they were willing to labor, sacrifice, and suffer for the cause of civil and religious liberty.  Wouldn’t they be surprised to see what we’ve turned it into today!

    There’s a line in America the Beautiful that goes, “Who more than self, their Country loved.”  A group of people cared about loving their neighbors and communities and crowned their good with brotherhood.   Yet, today our Country is marred with selfishness and violence while political parties care more about grasping power than doing right.
