Anti-Nativity Scrooges Selective In What Gods They Toss Out Into The Cold
Society/Culture War item by Frederick Meekins
For decades, Santa Monica churches erected nativity scenes on municipal park land there in celebration of the Christmas season.
America in Need of Revival
Society/Culture War item by Jeff Lukens
We live in an age of unbelief. We live with America in decline. We are no longer the America of our founders, or even the America that existed twenty years ago. Collectively, we are more secular, with ever-increasing faith in government, and decreasing faith in God—the consequences of which are already showing. The culture must change. We need a spiritual revival. We need a Third Great Awakening.
Living in a Forest
General item by Alan Caruba
Driving around my hometown and surrounding communities in New Jersey, a familiar sight has been tree stumps, the wreckage left behind by Hurricane Sandy. Having lived here with few breaks my entire life, it never occurred to me how many trees there are. From a lookout point in the Essex County South Mountain Reservation area one sees in the distance the city of New York.
It’s Official: Mayor Bloomberg Needs Mental Help
Bird Brain Flu item by Selwyn Duke
Since removing constitutional rights is all the rage now, I have to ask: when does dislocation from reality become severe enough to justify involuntary commitment? A good study case is NYC’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who recently uttered a real gem on his weekly radio show.

You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown
Constitution/Republic item by Chip McLean
Good grief, even Charlie Brown isn’t safe from the anti-Christmas zealots…
Republicans Cannot Successfully Navigate The Liberal Gauntlet
Politics item by Christopher G. Adamo
Barely a week after the disastrous November 2012 election, Bobby Jindal, the Republican Governor of Louisiana, came down hard on his party, chastising it for poor public relations, and exhorting it to “stop being the stupid party.” Few among the conservative base would dispute such a characterization of the GOP. Yet a more thorough examination of Jindal’s comments reveals that he is falling into precisely the same trap that over time has garnered such a demeaning moniker for the party.
Should Christians Hold Prayer Vigils With Apostates?
Religion item by Marsha West
During the 2012 election, the New Religious Right (NRR) held prayer vigils all throughout the United States. Their rallying cry: “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

California Dreaming: Bankruptcy, Pensions and Taxes
Budget/Debt item by James Hall
The California Public Employees’ Retirement System lives in the rarified air where financial magic somehow materializes to pay for their irrational exuberant pensions. When the drug high is over, the real world requires a harsh penalty for ebullient irresponsibility.
Democrats Playing Unconscionable Games With “Fiscal Cliff”
Budget/Debt item by Christopher G. Adamo
Americans are currently being inundated with panicked talk of the looming “fiscal cliff,” though the specific threats posed by this apocalyptic event are not always clear. And while an impending financial catastrophe should be cause for serious concern, its realities need to be recognized if they are to be properly confronted and the disaster averted. Unfortunately, the Obama administration and its media cronies are operating in their standard mode, and ignoring the real risks while doing their best to play the situation for all the political gain they can reap from it. Meanwhile, the fate of the American people is of no more concern to them than the hapless Embassy staff in Benghazi.

Freedom and Liberty item by Larry Wilke
In reading about the latest “unrest” in Syria, I can’t help but see at least a few similarities between their situation and ours..

Another Victory for the Anti-Christian Grinches
Page 1 of 1 pages
Political Correctness item by Selwyn Duke
The Salvation Army has long been a holy-day season fixture in front of my local supermarket, providing some Christmas sounds and cheer as it raises money to serve the poor. But when I went grocery shopping a couple of days ago, a difference was apparent: there was an SA volunteer and collection pot on the premises, but no trademark bell-ringing. So I asked the man why — even though I already knew the answer.
