Rebuking Huckabee’s Book: Chapter 4 – “Uniform Diversity” – An Oxymoron

This is a very hypocritical chapter in which Huckabee whines that the left calls the right names like Nazi’s or anti-abortionists or racists, but he totally ignores the right calling liberals communists and socialists, or the right comparing Obama to the Nazi’s at every turn. He even says our liberal-controlled world tells us that, “Calling… Read more »

Rebuking Huckabee’s Book: Chapter 3 – The Culture of Crude

This is the chapter of the book that received the most press attention upon the book’s release. The controversy was over the fact that Huckabee criticized Beyonce’s sexually explicit lyrics, even though Huckabee played the sexually-suggestive song, Cat Scratch Fever, alongside womanizing and gun-loving Republican musician, Ted Nugent, on his TV show.

Rebuking Huckabee’s Book: Chapter 1 – The New American Outcasts

The title of this chapter alone shows that one of Huckabee’s goals is to further convince the Heartlanders and Southerners, especially those of the Christian variety, that they are a persecuted people who are in danger of extinction without Huckabee being elected to save them.

Why Huckabee’s “Fair Tax” is so unfair (and un-Christian)

As Mike Huckabee ramps up his 2016 presidential campaign, we’re going to hear him speak quite a bit about abolishing the IRS, eliminating income tax, and implementing a consumption tax that he and others call, “The Fair Tax.” Instead of having income tax, we would have a hefty national sales tax. Those who wrote the… Read more »

If Republicans give more to charity than Democrats, does that makes them the party that cares more about the poor?

From time to time, when I post a statement online that refers to the Republican Party as the party that exploits Americans for the sake of the greedy, a Republican will fire back that my statement is incorrect, because Republicans give more to charity than Democrats do. Of course, they miss the point of what… Read more »

Panicked Ebola response proves we are still “A Nation of Wusses”

Several years ago, when the NFL cancelled an game in Philadelphia, because of a predicted snowstorm (that only totaled about 8 inches), former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell scoffed at the move, which prompted him to label America as a “nation of wusses,” a phrase that later appeared as the title of his autobiographical book.
