Engage: How to Talk Politics with Complete Strangers (Yes, you CAN do it!)

3404695735_20f93cca21

(TRS Lead writer – Gwendolyn Sims) In these chaotic, contradictory, and downright confusing times, I’m often asked how to talk politics with strangers. As conservatives, we are by nature, well, conservative, but that shouldn’t stop us from talking about what we stand for and what we believe. In fact, that unwillingness to articulate what and who we are, often works ...

Merry Christmas to all who still celebrate!

merry-christmas-christian-a8fcczit

Happy Holidays to those who really don’t know what to celebrate or why they celebrate! Happy Run-Up-Your -Debt Day! Or Happy Festivus! Happy Happy! Whatever floats your boat as they say. Unless you want to go back to pre-Catholic church days, it’s simply Christmas. Yes, for those of you scholars who think you’re going to school me, save your brain ...

Stone Prophet Gore?

gore-bare-naked

I would like to know how many times one has to get predictions wrong before you kick them to the curb? In the Old Testament when a prophet said he had a word from God and it didn’t happen they stoned him! Seven years ago today, Al Gore predicted in front of a German audience that the “North Polar Ice ...

There was a time when the name “Chamber of Commerce” held a level of clout and credibility as an organization who advocated for businesses, especially small businesses. This week I received a press release from the US Women’s Chamber of Commerce (USWCC) announcing their endorsement for Hillary Clinton. My initial reaction was “Oh great. Women endorsing a woman just because ...

PC Police: 14 and Counting!

PCsign

Last week we had what some are calling the second worst terror attack on American soil since 9/11. I say some because, at the time of this writing, I am still waiting for most of mainstream, left-leaning media to call it what it is… an attack by extreme religious Muslim terrorists. Period! What are they waiting for? They had no ...

Christians vs. Muslims? REALLY!

christMuslimWmn

It seems like most articles written today mention how Christians are ignoring their terrible recent past where MANY Christians have killed in the name of their religion. I would call that a falsehood, but simply put… it’s a lie. Years ago my wife and I took a parenting class. We had a “blended” home and wanted to learn how to ...

College unrest: Are students just pawns in a faculty game of war against the administration?

LiesTruth

First it was University of Missouri, then it was Ithaca College and Claremont McKenna College, now it’s Occidental College who’ve called for the resignation and/or removal of university leadership (presidents or deans). Solidarity protests have popped up all over the country and additional colleges are making their own “list of demands” to change the culture on campus. Am I the only one ...

ISIS is contained… In Paris!

ISIScontgained

President Obama gives a whole new meaning to “altered reality.” The French President called it the first year President Obama was in office. After they met he alluded to the fact that Mr. Obama may have some real character flaws. His actions protecting America (or not) throughout his terms in office have proved his grasp on reality is almost nonexistent. ...

Halloween brought out some of the REAL Lib Loons!

100025_600

A lot of you saw the posts on Facebook about a parent (don’t know if it was mom, dad, both or whatever) who asked other parents in the neighborhood not to exclude their child from Halloween. You see, their child has a peanut allergy and could get very sick simply from coming into contact with them. The parents posted flyers ...

Push Back… Simply, PUSH BACK!

Wrestling001

Let me start with a disclaimer for those who can’t figure it out on their own. Violence is NEVER the way. With that said, protecting yourself physically from people who are trying to do you physical harm is not violence, it’s called self-defense. This week, as I do every week to get ready for 3 hours of radio per day, ...

Mr. President, PLEASE Return from OZ!

wizard-obama-oz

Mr. President, PLEASE Return from OZ, or Mars, or wherever your mind is currently at. Really successful people surround themselves with people of knowledge. They don’t do it to spend hordes of money. They do it to have the best information from those who have expertise so they have a greater chance of being successful. Mr. Obama loves to convene ...
