Washington DC’s “Food Police”: an unappetizing stew of Ego and Power

Food Police 474

As tempted as I am to believe that our elected leaders and media elite are intentionally and overtly evil…I don’t. Rather, I hold that tremendous power coupled with outsized ego has infused them with the belief that “they know better” how we should live our own lives, and that’s that. 

They’ve no humility and even less doubt. Considering they could be wrong, or that their ideals ought not be made compulsory, simply never enters into the equation.

And for the most recent evidence of that theory, we can look no further than the White House’s ill-conceived Public School Lunch program, also known as Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) of 2010.

For a glimpse of what I mean, check out this video from ABC News from back in 2012:

Alternative lifestyle leads to Olympic gold

Who knew? I’m ALSO living an “Alternative Lifestyle”.

Welcome to the new-and-improved United States of America, where traditional maturity and responsible decision-making are now considered to be “counter-cultural”…

A Brief Celebration of Marriage

Since this is Valentine’s Weekend, and last Sunday was Worldwide Marriage Day, it seems appropriate to celebrate one of the greatest gifts that God ever gave to us: marriage

I stumbled across a brief sermonette by Jonathan Bartlett of Bartlett Publishing, which was given at his brother-in-law’s wedding. It hits on themes which are, sadly, too rarely heard in our society nowadays:

You knew it was coming: “MANDATORY Marriage Counseling”

Wedding Rings 4645

Seriously, if the State can redefine what marriage is, this was merely a matter of time:

From The Denver Post:

As if getting married wasn’t complicated enough, a proposed ballot initiative would require mandatory pre-wedding education before couples could say “I do.”

Ragamuffins!

QUOTE from the article: “…children are not a disease, and poverty isn’t a symptom…”

A short-but-powerful post in defense of having/raising children, which ends up as a tribute to marriage itself.  ¡Bravo!

Man saves dog from drowning, …before he saves his wife?

danger 3Picture this: you, your wife and your pet are all taking a boat ride when it capsizes. You’re all wearing life jackets (even the pet), but you can’t assist both your pet and your wife to shore simultaneously

Whom do you choose to save first: your pet, or your spouse?

For everyone choosing “spouse”, congratulations! You’re wrong.

Dennis Prager: “It’s as if they NEVER existed….”

An age-old debate between guys and gals is the way men are wired (visually) vs. women (NOT visually).

Lord knows I’ve had this discussion with my beautiful, smart, funny and generally incredible bride of almost twenty years…, and I’m guessing most married/engaged guys have had it, too. Since it’s the middle of summer, and folks are going to the beach, etc,…, this is as good a time as any to review the subject.

pragerDennis Prager masterfully covers such topics in his live appearances and on his radio show, especially during the “Male/Female Hour”. Using equal parts humor and common sense, Dennis can be trusted to get past various misconceptions, and pull out the truth of the matter.

My favorite part of his video (below) is when Prager says:

Mr. Virtual President: “Get the Government out of the Marriage business, completely…”

v-potus-headerA very short, and very wise, opinion on the entire DOMA decision from the one-and-only Bill Whittle, speaking as his alter-ego, Mr. Virtual President.

I’m completely in agreement with Bill here: this isn’t an argument for or against traditional marriage, or any other kind. It’s that Government has once again intruded into an area where it should have no opinion whatsoever. By allowing the Federal Government to redefine marriage to reflect what a certain segment of society WANTS it to be, we’ve taken another step down the path towards an all-powerful State, with that State able to re-define society according to its whims.

There’s only one winner when that happens: the State.
