Talk about an entitlement mentality

You know who had the best commentary on the Burwell v. Hobby Lobby case? Comedian Louis C.K. back in 2009. I assume the comic would take the Planned Parenthood side of the dispute if he were directly asked, but a bit he did on the Conan O’Brien show nonetheless gets to the heart of the [...]

Is LeBron James the Prodigal Son?

So, basketball superstar LeBron James has decided to leave the Miami Heat to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the hometown squad (he’s an Akron, Ohio native) he abandoned in the summer of 2010.

Catholic at Heart: Pierce Brosnan’s Imperfect Yet Saving Faith

It would be a beautiful world if cradle Catholics remained faithful all their lives, and if converts (because, in this scenario, there wouldn’t be any reverts, like me) came to the Faith all unspotted and pure, with no nagging personal issues mucking up the place. A beautiful world, yes, but not this world. Let’s take [...]

Christianity On the Rise Amid Persecution

And if you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know that a third for-profit corporation made it to all the way to the Supreme Court. That was Autocam, a Michigan-based company who [...]

Mark Cuban explains the current student loan crisis in less than 90 seconds

I don’t watch the NBA, but this is enough to make me a fan of the Dallas Mavericks. Their semi-obnoxious owner nailed the problem with $1 trillion in college debt that is crushing Millennials — and the adverse effects its having not just on them but everyone. Politicians love to sell themselves as problem solvers [...]

Paul Ryan grills IRS Commissioner: “I don’t believe you.”

I have watched so many committee meetings and most are more boring than soccer. But when Paul Ryan spoke to the IRS Commissioner, fireworks ensued. The purpose of the Internal Revenue Service is to collect tax revenues for the federal government. It is not to be used as a political tool by the President and [...]
