as the kids say....smh....shaking my head......        

Every generation thinks that theirs is the most enlightened and the most advanced ever seen on planet Earth.     They're pretty much right.   Scientific and social advances keep humanity moving forward in positive ways.      Mankind keeps re-evaluating the ways things have always been done and improve upon the things that are still working, and get rid of the things that are no longer valid.       It's the way things have been since societies first started soming together.      

Then why is America moving backwards?    I know the calendar says 2015, but it feels like it's 1520.      Sure, every poll shows a clear majority of Americans agree that same-sex marriage should be legal (closing in on 60%), but apparently the will of people isn't enough for some legislators in a bunch of red states who want to make sure they don't go down without losing every battle in addition to losing the war.    They want to legalize discrimination...how nice!    They want to make it legal for business-people to be able to pick and choose who they want to do business with.     I think we went through this before....it was called 'the Jim Crow era'.     You remember that, right?      One group through another group was sub-human and used religious teachings to show that mixing between those groups was an abomination.     You remember what happened, right?   It was ruled to be unconstitutional.     Thank God.       

Well, these days, some lawmakers have decided that their consitutional rights are more valid and more important that the consititutional rights of gays and lesbians.    And they want to make it so that if you feel the same way, you can refuse to serve them.    So let me get this straight:  if you are a LGBTer, you are committing a sin.   And somehow, you've determined that this is the only sin in a whole book full of forbidden things that you've deemed important enough to single out.   So, murderers and theives are okay?    How about those who work on the Sabbath?     If you've ever committed adultry or not honored your father or mother?    How about someone of another faith because they clearly have another God before Him?    And those are the commandments...not just random rules and laws in the Old Testament.    You would think the violation of the big 10 would be more aggregious, right?    I guess not.    

What about the arguements we've heard?    What if someone went to a kosher caterer for a non-kosher event and ordered bacon-wrapped scallops?    The don't carry that item, so it's discrimination, right?     wrong.     You can't force someone to carry an item on their menu just because you want it.   Can you go to Hardees and order sea bass?   No...they don't carry it.   And besides, 'people who love pork" is not a protected class under the Consititution.      The arguements are getting sillier every day, but the politics is getting scarier.     We had a lawmakers in Wyoming who added the language to a bill to protect LGBT rights "when hell freezes over".   That was an official bill.   His constituents must be so proud.     A Texas lawmaker complained to a judge about the implimentation of same-sex marriage, obviously upset about the sanctity of marriage not being held up.    Oh, yeah, he's been married 5 times, so he's a perfect example of those vows meaning something.     And in California, public proposal is being floated to allow for the execution of anyone found to be gay or lesbian.       I thought this was America and I thought this was 2015.    

I understand you may not like the person down the block from you being in a same-sex relationship.    Your religion may frown on it   You may frown on it.   But you can't discriminate against them.     Have you EVER committed a sin?     Sure you have.    Do you think it's right for someone to discrimiate against you if you ever ate shellfish or shaved or did anything else forbidden in the Bible?    You can't pick and choose.      All sins are equal in the eyes of the Lord.     It's the eyes of some Americans that have me worried.

I spent much of Saturday listening to Donald Trump's message... and to his message when we interviewed him on the Hot Talk Morning Show. There is no one who understands the global economy and how it effects us and our national debt better than Trump. We are being outsmarted by leaders of third-world nations and nations which Americans thought would never have the upper-hand over us. I believe Trump can "make America great again" after Obama spends eight years screwing it up and driving it into the ground.

Obama apologizes for our successful past, our leadership and superiority. If you don't think America is and should be the best country in the world, then move out!!! I say that Trump should run with Marco Rubio as his VP... Lindsey Graham as Secretary of State and Rudy Giuliani as Homeland Security Chief. We need to shut down bad deals with China, Iran, Cuba and Mexico ASAP... Get out of debt... Get business back to the United States... Support our businesses to create jobs HERE... Control environmentalists who slow our roll giving communist nations like China an opportunity to undercut us ( like with Rare Earth minerals)... Lock up our borders... Build our military and serve our veterans when they return... And make deals... Trump-kind of deals... where America Wins! Trump is a winner.  God Help Us if Slick Hilly slithers into the White House!!! It may be time for a female president, but she is certainly not the right female.

Hillary Clinton made her "announcement" via a YouTube video because she wants us to think she isn't about the fan fare and is more concerned about listening than talking... A listening tour, again.  Really???  It certainly didn't work for her last time... How about TALKING about where she stands on real issues?  How about speaking the truth?  How about not embarrasing our great nation with another Clinton scandal?  Oh dear, I pray Clinton is not elected....we can't take another disasterous White House...

On the world stage, it's humiliating that Obama was re-elected by our own people.   It's unbelievable how we have allowed this man to sell off jobs to far away economies, bring us closer to nuclear war and to make the awful situation in the middle east EVEN WORSE!  The IRS, the VA system, the EPA... all departments out of control.  Where are his leadership skills?  Is he incompetent or is he purposefully trying to ruin America?

He's so concerned about his legacy that he has micro-managed it into hell.
