#ChrisChristie and #Bridgegate: ‘Morning Joe’ (amazingly) gets it right…

Morning Joe

I watch MSNBC occasionally for the same reason I watch or read anything: I want to know what people think, sometimes especially those folks with whom I disagree. And Lord knows that I often disagree with, and have been critical of, the MSNBC folks in the past.

In my defense, when your channel features such luminaries as Melissa Harris-Perry, Ed Shultz, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews and Al Sharpton every day, merely being “critical” should be viewed as remarkable self-restraint.

Why Christie’s #Bridgegate Press Conference said less about him, and more about the Press itself

C Christie 3373

Let’s get one thing straight here first: I am NOT a Chris Christie fan.

That said, I’ve got nothing against the guy personally. Yeah, I know: he’s a RINO. But c’mon, he’s in New Jersey; of course he’s a RINO. You don’t see Evangelical Christian Teaparty Reagan Conservatives getting elected to run deep blue states, any more than you have Commie Socialist Liberals getting elected to run deep red ones.

Still, the entire Bridgegate controversy has received more media attention than almost anything that’s happened in the Obama Administration, with the possible exception of the Associated Press phone records scandal, and THAT was only because it affected the Press itself.

Choose Life: “Darby’s Story”

Choose life 444

First of all, we were alerted to this by our wonderful friend & blogger-in-arms James (aka “Biltrix“).

With all of the gifts which our society has, there is no gift greater than that of life itself. Likewise, there’s no gift which we treat so cavalierly. Rather than viewing all life with awe and gratitude, too often it is greeted with revulsion, apathy or outright disdain.

In a nation where people have become insensitive to the plight of others to an almost absurd degree, where 17 states fund all or most “medically necessary” abortions, where men like Kermit Gosnell practice their trade for years with impunity, where 90% of Down Syndrome babies are killed in the womb, where infanticide is an actual practice, …we need as many stories like this video (included below) to be seen as possible.

It’s very short yet tremendously powerful.

Please: share it with everyone you can.

Remember “Julia”? She’s back, …and thanks to #Obamacare, she’s not doing too well

If you think back to the 2012 presidential campaign, a major storyline was Obama’s “Julia”: a PR storyboard which detailed the hypothetical cradle-to-grave, government-assisted life of a woman receiving everything from Headstart to college loans; from childbirth to Medicare.

Julia - A

It was highly illustrative, since such a life envisioned TOTAL dependence on Big Daddy Government and championed it as an ideal to be pursued, rather than avoided at all costs. It was mocked mercilessly, and rightfully so.

But what if Julia was real: now, …today?

Society and the “Halfway Decent” Samaritan

good vs apathy

What’s happened to us?

Recently, a report concerning a man being shot at a convenience store gained headlines. No, not (sadly) because being shot in front of a convenience store in-and-of-itself was unusual, but rather due to the behavior of the customers who subsequently WALKED OVER his body, in the doorway:

 

I thought this must be some sort of unthinkably sick prank, until I read the following account. It seems that this actually occurred back in 2012, and we’re only seeing the video now because the shooter is on trial:

(via The UK Daily Mail) – “…Shocking surveillance footage shows the moment that a man who had been shot was stepped over by customers at a convenience store. Jheryl Wright, 31, was fatally shot in September 2012 as he left a shop in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

One topic commonly discussed here at “Two Heads…” is our nation’s culture or, perhaps more specifically, the deterioration of our culture.

America - Demotivational Poster

Recently, I came across an article by Reverend Billy Graham, titled “My Heart Aches for America“.  In it, he recalls a conversation he had with his wife, Ruth:

“…Some years ago, my wife, Ruth, was reading the draft of a book I was writing. When she finished a section describing the terrible downward spiral of our nation’s moral standards and the idolatry of worshiping false gods such as technology and sex, she startled me by exclaiming, “If God doesn’t punish America, He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.

Happy Father’s Day!!

In honor of Father’s Day, ….both “Heads” are taking the day off.

Hope you enjoy the collection we put together last year (…admittedly, the ‘Star Wars’ one is still my favorite). 

Have a great day, gang….
