It’s still Father’s Day
  20 Jun 2010     9:11 pm      Ron Coleman

It’s Father’s Day, so of course, I think of my dad.
My father and I were never too alike.  He was a quiet kid, and I wasn’t.  He spoke via his actions.  On reflecting on my own father as a father, especially when I became  a father, I realized what a great dad he was.  Infinitely patient, slow to anger, always ready to be a kid with other kids, and, I thought — and evidently everyone else did — a very, very funny man.  Not in the “A man walks into …

Father’s Day 2010: ‘Love’ Does NOT Make a ‘Family’
  20 Jun 2010     10:44 am      Warner Todd Huston

On the eve of Father’s Day, I heard on the air on Chicago’s WIND AM some typical left-wing babble about families. A fellow calling himself a doctor waxed eloquent over how we can “make our own families,” and how “families aren’t just about blood. They are about love.” Nice, gauzy, and wholly inadequate to truly define the importance of family, isn’t it? But it is this mushy-headed thinking that is so destructive to the role of real families in America today, especially where it concerns fathers. So, on this 2010 …

Saturday Important: 50 Beers To Try Before You Die
  24 Apr 2010     9:49 am      William Teach

It may be Saturday, yet another day where Obama has lied (wait, NPR called him on it?), but, let’s think about what is really important in our lives
You’ve heard of “100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall”?
How about 50 to try before you die?!
Call it the bucket list of beer.
GQ magazine put together a list of 50 beers from around the world all beer enthusiasts need to try before they die.
GQ’s style editor, Adam Rapoport, narrowed down that list and, along with co-anchor Harry Smith, sampled …

Obama Wants You to Sit Down and Shut Up (Video)
  18 Apr 2010     1:46 pm      Duane Lester

As I wrote at Pajamas Media, President Obama is currently on a Health Care Comedy Tour. He is addressing his myrmidons across this country and utilizing Saul Alinsky’s advice.
This isn’t about logic or forming a coherent argument. This is about ridicule, “man’s most potent weapon.”
Those are the words of the granddaddy of community organizers, Saul Alinsky. In his book Rules for Radicals, Alinsky wrote: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”
On this, he’s …

Grab a Box of Tissues; Soldiers Reunited with Loved Ones
  10 Apr 2010     3:33 pm      Lori Ziganto

Seriously. Grab some tissues. Yes, even you, fellas.
The greatest force for good in the world matched with the greatest love and joy in the world. A video of a collection of clips of our soldiers surprising and being reunited with family members and loved ones, who also sacrifice by being parted from them and by living in fear for their safety every minute of each and every day.
My gratitude is absolutely endless. Sincere, unconditional, undying gratitude; I can’t express the true depth …

A Beautiful Reminder to Embrace Living
  1 Mar 2010     1:50 am      Lori Ziganto

I’d been delaying doing  my first front page post for Red State, because I didn’t want to do the dreaded figurative face plant — I do enough literal ones; I’m an awful klutz. I started working on something, but, it turns out, it will end up being my second post, because I read something the other night that struck me and that I found incredibly moving. It touched me further, when I read that Marie Osmond’s son had taken his own life on Friday.
As some …

Bottoms up!
  28 Feb 2010     11:08 am      Ron Coleman

Today is the Jewish holiday of Purim. (Unlike the biblically-based Jewish holidays, this is one, like Chanuka, on which orthodox Jews such as myself are allowed to blog!)
As well explained in the Book of Esther, it’s the holiday of turnabout, surprises, false identities, intrigue, perhaps some emotional legerdemain, and not a little spiritual confusion. The outcome isn’t always funny, or even fun, except perhaps in the sense of the divine comedy.
It all comes around in the end, though!
Originally posted on Ron Coleman’s pretty good blog, Likelihood of …

Yes, Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus
  25 Dec 2009     8:23 am      William Teach

Every Christmas, after the presents are opened and breakfast is being made, I read this first in the paper (ye olde parental units get the paper, and they live in NJ). It is a Christmas classic that has always touched my soul. While some people outside of the Tri-State area have heard of it, rarely do papers outside of the NY-NJ-Conn area see it in print, and it always surprises me when I run across someone who has not ever heard the first line. I humbly bring it to you, …

Kids Write Letters To Jesus
  21 Dec 2009     10:00 am      William Teach

A happy story for a pre-Christmas Monday
Children all over the world write letters to Santa Claus asking for presents, but Hope Baldwin, a fifth-grader at St. Monica School, has a reminder for them.
“We get gifts on Christmas, on Jesus’ birthday, to remind us what a gift he was to us,” said Hope, 10, of Kalamazoo. “A lot of kids forget that. If Jesus had never been born, we wouldn’t even have Christmas.”
Hope and 25 of her classmates at the Catholic school all wrote letters this year to the Christ child …

  13 Nov 2009     9:12 am      William Teach

Here’s your feel good story to end the work week
A BRAVE young Aussie warrior who went missing in action during the heat of battle has been found safe and well after spending a year in the Afghan desert.
Sabi, a black Australian Labrador, aged about four, is back home now on the Australian base at Tarin Kowt.
Sabi was rescued by an American serviceman who suspected she was not an enemy combatant, but a highly-trained hairy bomb sniffing digger.
It’s Lassie Come Home, Afghan-style.
The story is one I would like to excerpt the …
