Condoleezza Rice Changing the Face of Golf

The San Francisco Chronicle reporter is a bit overblown on the "white male status" thing, as is to expected from the Chronicle but this remains a good story about the former Secretary of State.

And that's how Rice, intentionally or not, is quietly helping change the face of golf for women and people of color. She keeps popping up at golf clubs and in tournaments that were once fortresses of the white, male ruling elite

Oliver Stone's Pathetic, If Vile, Lies

Director Stone's Showtime "Untold History" of the United States is nothing more than lies and could have been Soviet propaganda during the days of the Cold War. Few people are watching Showtimes but what is distressing is Stone's idiotic views are probably commonplace on college campuses nowadays.

For co-writers Stone and Kuznick and their comrades among the neo-Communist left, there is never, ever an acknowledgement that America throughout its history has had existential enemies – instead, there is only government-manipulated paranoia and hysteria. There is never, ever any acknowledgement that the motivations of foreign powers are anything but innocent and benign – instead, America’s are always corrupt and imperialistic. Wars and atrocities are always the fault of the United States. Poverty and greed are always the fault of capitalism.

In baseball money, Hernandez is worth it. But the Mariners need some good hitters too. Other sectors of the economy may be suffering but baseball is booming.

What the Super Bowl Ads Say About Us

As trite as it may seem, we truly have become two Americas. We saw this clearly in November. Though it was presented differently Sunday night, there were red state ads and blue state ads. There is a clear delineation and polarization of values in our country. And advertisers know this.

We live in a post-Christian culture. The Nones are rising. We are fighting an uphill battle against culture. It’s a battle that has waged since the garden. And one that will not end until His return. It is a valiant battle and one we must fight.

We must connect with culture while not compromising our message. Why did the Farmer ad connect with so many? Because it offered hope. Honesty. Diligence. Tradition. Values.

But those values are becoming less valued. However a remnant remains. We are that remnant. We must point to the noble. To inspiration. To wholesomeness. And ultimately to the gospel.

OK, the judge is an idiot but shouldn't society be condemning a culture that teaches women are worthless. Oh, I forgot. Islam does that and Islam is politically correct so no harsh words can be said about it.
