Blue State Blues - Poverty and Exodus

The Census Bureau’s Supplementary Poverty Measure, which measures the poorest states in the country (and includes the cost of housing, food etc. in its calculations) has released its new list, and guess which state is the poorest one in America? Some deep south, backwoods red state? Nope. It’s California, the bluest of the blue […]

Thursday Open Thread

Wednesday With Floyd

Greetings from a kibbutz near the town of Sderot.  That over there is the Gaza Strip. The kibbutz has taken 40 rockets since Trump made his Jerusalem announcement.  They’ve also discovered a few Hamas tunnels built halfway across that farmland… luckily the IDF removed them.

Tuesday Open Thread

Last night I gave a speech at our leadership institute entitled “Civility in Uncivil Times” the gist of which is that we are not necessarily more uncivil than other times in our past (as the above cartoon printed by Andrew Jackson supporters in 1828 attests — ditto JQA’s followers hounding Mrs. Jackson to her […]

An Unsafe Enterprise

Scott Ott wrote this shortly after the church shooting at Sutherland Springs, Texas. It is beautifully written and, in my mind, goes right to the heart of why the Christian faith is not for the feint of heart.

Here’s the transcript:

Churches cannot be made safe. We can station armed guards, and members of […]
