I’ve been away for a bit, 2 months or so, and not a damn thing has changed in Washington, D.C. with our illustrious Congressional leaders. Instead of looking at D.C. through the microcosm of the day-to-day BS, I thought I’d take some time off to see if I could discern ANY change. Regrettably, the answer appears to be a resounding NO!
Okay, forget D.C. for now. What else can be looked at in a positive sense?
Is Chris Christie combusting?
Has Wendy Davis’s 15 minutes of fame come and gone? Seems the headlines haven’t been particularly kind (for good reason, I might add).
Oh yeah, Boehner’s big bash and retreat in Maryland. What have we learned? The GOP leadership released its so-called principles on immigration reform, which Breitbart.com has been all over.
Seems Boehner is as dumb as ever.
Like I said, nothing much has changed.
This video has gone viral on YouTube and I’m hard-pressed not to show it. It truly is beautiful! Twins showing us their bond while in the womb, albeit now outside.
How better a way to honor our vets than to give them back their sense of worth. This video touched me. I hope it does you too!
Here is the monologue from today’s Roderic Deane Show:
I’m very troubled by what I see going on in our military these days. In a nutshell, it seems our military is being wiped out from within! I kid you not!
We all know that the Obama administration has decided that gay military personnel can serve openly. We also know that the Obama administration has taken a decidedly “anti-Christian” stance, barring certain observances of Christian religions in combat zones and military bases. The question is, Why?
Perhaps as a way to answer the question “Why”, we need to look at other things that have been going on in the military. I’m going to quote a section of any article appearing on WorldNetDaily a few weeks ago:
In another stunning display of unnecessary divisiveness, our imperial leader has proclaimed that since there are now enough people offended by the name “Redskins”, team ownership should consider changing it.
This, from an article appearing today on the Associated Press website:
President Barack Obama says he would “think about changing” the Washington Redskins’ name if he owned the football team as he waded into the controversy involving a word that many consider offensive to Native Americans.
Obama, in an interview with The Associated Press, said team names such as the Redskins offend “a sizable group of people.” He said that while fans get attached to the names, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place.
“I don’t know whether our attachment to a particular name should override the real legitimate concerns that people have about these things,” he said in the interview, which was conducted Friday.

Guest host Doctor de Fundo takes to the airwaves!
I heard about this on my commute to work today, courtesy of the WBAP Morning Team. It’s inspiring….and heartbreaking!
I truly believe that the culture of abortion is going to be the defining atrocity of our great country, but we can stop it now! We just need to say “NO”!

What follows is the monologue from today’s Roderic Deane Show:
The Reagan Library is a short drive north of LA. From where I was staying near Marina Del Rey, it was only about 50 miles or so to Simi Valley, the home of the library. Since I decided to visit on a Friday, the traffic was tolerable, despite the fact that it was Labor Day weekend.
As you move out of the Los Angeles area, you realize how arid that part of California truly is…and hilly! Coming from the Dallas area, the terrain was breathtaking. The highway meandered up, down and around the various hills. One thing that really struck me was how brown it was. Very little green could be seen for great distances and you quickly came to appreciate how important irrigation is to this part of California. Only the valleys have green areas, the hillsides and hilltops are virtually devoid of green vegetation. It helps you understand how much of a threat they live under with regard to wildfires. There’s certainly a lot of volatile tinder to burn!
