Episode 43: Didn't We Just Talk About Mosquito Season?

By Zippy the Wonder Snail | Jun 26, 2024 at 10:26 PM

The Zippy Crew hits the political pavement with an episode that covers Supreme Court decisions on gun control; American and European election seasons, including the upcoming debate between Presidents Biden and Trump; interesting facts about mosquitos and a look at solid teaching as discussed by the Apostle Paul in his second letter to Timothy.

Trump Isn’t the Savior (and Neither Is A Conviction Against Him)

By Timothy R. Butler | May 30, 2024 at 9:49 PM

I could have written this column, regardless of the outcome. Half the country has put its hopes in an all too human “savior.” Half the country has put its hopes on the defeat of that man. Today marks either a celebration or a catastrophe if one’s hopes rest on the state of President Trump. That tells more of our false hopes than anything else.

The COVID-19 Lies Are Collapsing -- Will Anyone Notice?

By Dennis E. Powell | May 29, 2024 at 6:43 PM

Those of us who have watched what currently passes for news know in absurd detail all we could ever hope to know about the trial of a former president for the lone financial offense of which he is arguably not guilty. What we don’t know about, because it has received practically no coverage, is 7 million cases of apparent homicide. Could be murder, could be manslaughter. We don’t know, and our media are not interested in finding out.

We Can't Stand Discussion

By Timothy R. Butler | May 15, 2024 at 12:31 PM

Who would have thought a National Review alum who has been a long-time Evangelical voice on politics, known for arguing for civility, would be a controversial choice to appear on a panel about politics in a conservative, Evangelical denomination? A few years ago, that’d have seemed absurd. Oh, for a few years ago.

Reality Always Wins

Gee. Every month people in the financial industry predict that inflation will go down. Almost every month, inflation doesn’t go down. Turmoil in the markets results. It is worth remembering that brokerage houses make money when you buy a security, but they also make money when you sell a security.

Senile Gray Biden Hood and Trumplestiltskin

By Dennis E. Powell | Mar 13, 2024 at 9:27 PM

And so we turn to fairytales. I don’t mean the softened modern children’s story versions, but the hard-core, often brutal originals. They usually don’t have any moral: they’re not fables. Instead, they are fanciful stories that occasionally go in the direction of fable, often in the direction of religion, sometimes taking us nowhere but a place of fear and bleak despair. They are more sophisticated versions of campfire ghost stories.

Cleaning Up One’s Own House

By Timothy R. Butler | Feb 28, 2024 at 9:11 PM

We’ve gotten bad (worse?) about cleaning up our own messes. Sure the other side is a mess, but it’s time to care more about doing what’s right than playing for loyalty or ephemeral victories.

Bread and Circuses

By Dennis E. Powell | Feb 14, 2024 at 10:37 PM

The conclusion that the United States is in its bread-and-circuses phase is just about impossible to escape, and our response to it proves the point.

Headed to Hell, But Entertained

By Dennis E. Powell | Jan 31, 2024 at 11:39 PM

Here we are again. Each time it is worse than the time before. We’re speeding toward the point when, come November, we will have a choice between two men whom we know are unqualified to be president of the United States. The only positive thing that can be said for either is that he is not the other.

Donald Swift

By Timothy R. Butler | Jan 31, 2024 at 11:14 PM

This week, I saw a meme that gave me a moment of clarity. Donald Trump and Taylor Swift have an awful lot in common. Call me fearless — the last sentence could lead to nearly all of the Internet hating me — but the comparison is worth entertaining to consider our political moment.
