America at Risk: A Documentary

America at Risk: A Documentary

About a year and a half ago, Kitty Werthmann of the Eagle Forum in South Dakota spoke in Rapid City about her experiences growing up in Nazi-controlled Austria. Her presentation was entitled “Socialism vs Freedom.” She has since been sought out by the Sean Hannity Show and Glenn Beck program for interviews. Now area radio talk show host Shad Olson is working on a documentary featuring Werthmann. It is called “America at Risk” and you wont’ want to miss it.

America’s Two Futures: Prosperity or Ruin?

America's Two Futures: Prosperity or Ruin?

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) has put together a great video which paints a very clear picture of the two possible futures America has. One of those involves fiscal responsibility, living according to constitutional limits on the federal government, and prosperity. The other possible future involves us continuing to spend as if money grows on trees…and ruin for our great nation.

Bitten by Cruel Logic

If you think there is no objective truth, no transcendent moral standard, that we are all simply products of millions of years of evolution who behave according to our particular genetic disposition, there are some things you might want to think about.

Glenn Beck’s Overton Window is Today’s Chilling Story

I just read Glenn Beck’s “The Overton Window.” The Overton Window is not a distraction from the real world, but a focus on the world as it is. So, if you’re looking for an escape from the world, this book is not for you, but if you don’t mind looking reality in the face and staring into the eyes of the truth behind the lies of the world, I recommend a dose of The Overton Window.

The Meaning of Marriage

The Meaning of Marriage

Many people desire the benefits that society bestows upon those who are married, but by no means do all of them truly qualify for those benefits. Of course, it generally wouldn’t go over well with someone if they were told that they, and their potential spouse, did not meet those qualifications. Nevertheless, it’s an incredibly challenging undertaking that cannot be pulled off by just any two people who want to play house. There are long-term consequences not just for the couple but for others as well.
