Reality Check Chris Rock, Hollywood, & Anyone Else Who Supports BLM

Williams-Guindon

I’ll be honest up front, I don’t watch The Oscars. But I read and watch the news. Let me get straight to the point.

On Saturday, 02/27/16 Ronald Hamilton, 32, an active duty Army staff sergeant assigned to the Joint Staff Support Center at the Pentagon, is accused of shooting and killing Officer Ashley Guindon. Stating the obvious, Hamilton is a black male, Guidon was a female police officer.

Last evening, Chris Rock during his monologue at the Oscars, Hollywood’s shining evening, said the following:

“Thing, you know, this year, the Oscars, things are gonna be a little different. Things are going to be a little different at the Oscars. This year, in the In Memoriam package, it’s just going to be black people that were shot by the cops on their way to the movies.” Continue reading

I hope everyone is having a delightful weekend, this, the last weekend prior to super Tuesday. I don’t normally post on the weekend, but, as they say with the news, “This just in…”, or more accurately, I just heard this. I will keep it short. Continue reading

Trump Personifies Negative Republican/Conservative Stereotypes

greedy

per·son·i·fy verb

to be the embodiment or personification of : incarnate

A very good article from Newsmax entitled “The Biggest Myths About Republicans” starts off:

“Over the years, Democrats and the mainstream media have fashioned an array of myths about Republicans.

According to those stereotypes, Republicans and especially conservatives are racist, homophobic, uncaring about the poor, mean-spirited, greedy, selfish, and intolerant.” Continue reading

This is JUST THE TIP….

icebergOf the MASSIVE, GARGANTUAN, BEHEMOTH ANTI-TRUMP ICEBERG that the mainstream media is going to unleash once Trump is the Republican nominee.

Are we sure we want this? Are we certain this the person we want representing Republicans? Is this what we want people to believe conservatism is about?

Please Consider This About Donald Trump: Rick Lazio

consider

In between debating many of my conservative friends on Facebook, who I must admit, help me greatly when it comes to formulating my blog posts, I’d like to through this to your collective thoughts. Before I do, let me start with the disclaimer I feel has become necessary to always add whenever I am about to raise something negative about a possible Donald Trump nomination: I will vote for Donald Trump if he is the Republican Party’s nominee for President in the 2016 election. Alright, having gotten that out of the way, let me ask you, do you remember Rick Lazio? Probably not. But whether you do or not, humor me. Continue reading

A KISS for Donald Trump & His Supporters

KISS

Again, let me begin by saying that, should Donald Trump win the Republican nomination for President, I will vote for him. Begrudgingly, as I have oft voted for the Republican candidate in the past, but I will vote for him nonetheless.

Matt Walsh recently wrote a long article over at TheBlaze, entitled Dear Trump Fan, So You Want Someone To ‘Tell It Like It Is’? OK, Here You Go., and it is an excellent article. It’s a great read, and I encourage everyone to read it. The author raises some wonderful points. But if it’s longer than you would like to read, then read on. This blog post is just over 500 words. Much shorter, much simpler. Continue reading

Site Updates Coming By Next Week

delayed

Sorry for the delay. I am switching web hosts because my current web host is using an older version of PHP, and some of the plugins I use for WordPress require the latest version of PHP to work properly. The new web host offers complimentary web site transfer, but the wait is 3-5 days, and I am still waiting on them to do the transfer.

I will also be updating the style and layout of the web site, as well as removing the Forums. I prefer forums to a comment section, but the forums just haven’t caught on. So, I will be enabling comments on my blog.

I fully expect this to be completed this week, and I am confident I will be posting regularly by next week, 02/29/16.

Thank you for your patience.

Risen, the Movie

12342879_534792660020825_5950280355871767735_n1

I had the pleasure of seeing Risen, the new movie that opened today, and it was a pleasure indeed: I thoroughly enjoyed the film.

It tells the story of Christ’s resurrection from the perspective of a fictional Roman Military Tribune named Clavius. Clavius is charged with investigating the disappearance of Jesus’ body after the crucifixion. What I liked so much about the story, is it delved into one of the points I always try to convey when discussing my faith with other people: why did people choose to follow Jesus?

Something that has always struck me personally as very compelling was the fact that the original Christians, the Apostles specifically, had nothing to gain, and everything to loose by following Jesus and preaching his word. One could easily understand why a person would enter the Church once it was established, as it often meant power, prestige, and authority. Many of the Apostles, however, started preaching at great personal risk, and many of them were eventually martyred for that faith. The Apostles whose professions were known, were all responsible members of their respective communities, and yet they gave up everything to follow Jesus, and paid the ultimate price for their faith.

In the United States, it is relatively easy to be a Christian. I am inspired by the immense faith of the Apostles, the sacrifices they, and many other early Christians made, which many times included their lives. This movie galvanized that inspiration. I’m happy to have seen it, and I am delighted to be able to recommend it.
