DR. JAMES THRASHER: MEMO FROM JEFF BEZOS - FORGET WORK-LIFE BALANCE

During a recent interview, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos discussed his philosophy on work-life balance. Bezos said, “If I am happy at home, I come into the office with tremendous energy, and if I am happy at work, I come home with tremendous energy.” In this article, Dr. James Thrasher examines the traditional theory of work-life balance and argues that our lives are multifaceted and cannot be placed into the traditional polar concepts of life on one end and work on the other end. Thrasher suggests that work and our callings should not be doing battle with each other. He writes, “The callings of life include family, vocation, church, and community (the common good of our neighbor). Our minds see them as rivaling commitments rather than elements in our lives that are interdependent and complementary.”

DENNIS PATRICK: MEMORIAL DAY POSTLUDE

Memorial Day is a time for remembering. Even if we cannot visit the grave site of family members, nevertheless they are commemorated in thought. This is true for my deceased parents who are buried in Colorado. Both are interred at Fort Logan National Cemetery in the shadow of the magnificent Rocky Mountains.

I’m pleased they are together again. Dad lived his life as an Army officer and it was a sad day when he retired. Having lost his own father early in life, he joined the Army as a young man during the Great Depression. In a way, the Army became a surrogate father to him teaching him life skills. When laid to rest at Fort Logan in 1997, it was as if he rejoined the ranks of those with whom he had spent so many years. Then, after living side by side as helpmates for decades, Mom joined him in 2008 in their final resting place together once again.

In his article, Dr. Mark Hendrickson reflects upon those who “achieved an eternal victory by standing on the right side of history, the right side in the conflict between good and evil—the right side of life and liberty.”

SELWYN DUKE: IF LIBERALS WERE ANIMALS, IT WOULD BE AN IMPROVEMENT

If liberals were animals, if would be a marked improvement. For one thing, animals don’t lie.

The final irony here is that liberals tend to embrace godless evolution and generally believe that people are nothing but animals. Yet as the brilliant G.K. Chesterton put it, “Man is an exception.” He “is always something worse or something better than an animal[.]” So true. And I think we know which free-will-abusing people are keeping MS-13 gangsters company in the worse category.

SALLY MORRIS: THE GOOD OLD SUMMERTIME - WHERE DID IT GO . . .  AND WHY?

A ghostly silence reigns. You don’t hear kids cheering in a backyard or the whap of a bat on a softball.  You rarely see kids in a wading pool in the yard. These are signs of cultural failure. No, it isn’t silly.  It is deadly serious.

DENNIS PATRICK: CELEBRATING OUR ARMED FORCES

The third Saturday in May is designated Armed Forces Day. For 2018 the date is set for May 19. The purpose is to honor men and women who have served the United States in the military. Unlike Veterans Day, this day is also designated to educate the public on various roles of the military and how each service plays a role in keeping America safe.

Unlike other Presidential cabinet positions, the armed forces and the defense of the nation is explicitly addressed in the US Constitution Article I, Section 8.

 

All the military services should expect a well-deserved salute from the public whom they protect. They merit a heartfelt thanks from a grateful nation. And, may we never take for granted the volunteers who serve.

THE GROVE CIGTY BILL: A PRESIDENT VS. CONGRESS

Thirty years ago, President Ronald Reagan vetoed a bill proposed by Senator Ted Kennedy that sought to reverse language in the Supreme Court’s holding in the Grove City College v. Bell case. Kennedy’s legislation, dubbed the “Grove City Bill” by the media, changed Title IX and other federal civil rights legislation to allow more government control over higher education. Reagan saw the threat to freedom and the substantial compliance burden that could result and sent the bill back unsigned. Unfortunately, the House and Senate overrode his veto and the “Grove City Bill” became law. In this article, constitutional scholar Dr. John Sparks looks back at the events and demonstrates why Reagan was correct 30 years ago and why Grove City College remains correct today.

DR. PAUL KENGOR: MARX’S APOLOGIEST SHOULD BE RED IN THE FACE

Saturday marked the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx. Today, many supporters of Marx argue that his philosophy was not the problem that led to tens of millions of deaths under communism but rather it was the aberration of the likes of Stalin, Lenin, Pol Pot, Castro, etc. who used the philosophy to murder. In this article that first appeared at The Wall Street Journal, communism scholar Dr. Paul Kengor argues that this type of this support for Marx is baseless because Marx “set the stage with his philosophy for the greatest ideological massacres in history.”

America today appears as divided as ever. It seems our divisiveness and disunity has never been worse.

Not so. America was born in discord and never outgrew it. This is as good a time as any to offer perspective – historical perspective.

PAUL KENGOR: MARX AT 200 - CLASSICAL VS. CULTURAL MARXISM

Tomorrow marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx. Some around the world are celebrating with tributes, lectures, and even birthday parties. But is classical Marxism on the decline? In this article that first appeared at The American Spectator, communism scholar Dr. Paul Kengor argues that Marxism is alive and well but the focus of Marxism today is not economic driven as it once was, rather it has become a cultural ideology. Kengor writes, “It’s a form of Marxism so radical in its redefinition of human nature that Marx himself would blush and find it bewildering.”

DENNIS PATRICK: DEMISE OF THE NFL

The NFL has been a target of the left for decades. It is not what the NFL has done. It is what the NFL represents. The NFL represents masculinity, strength, talent, rugged individualism, excellence, winning, competition, and love of country – everything leftists, liberals, and progressives hate. The NFL has represented this great American game and the intolerant left cannot stand it. Liberals have attacked the NFL over and over pushing themes like global warming, domestic violence, homophobia, concussions, and demonization of Christians. Check this annual sampling.

GROVE CITY COLLEGE: ON SMALL BUT MIGHTY COLLEGE VS. FEDERAL DOMINATION

In 1976, the federal government sought a signature from Grove City College’s fifth president, Dr. Charles MacKenzie—they did not receive one. What followed were compliance proceedings, a law suit in Federal District Court in Pittsburgh, then to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, and finally to the U.S. Supreme Court. In this article, constitutional scholar Dr. John Sparks takes readers through this important time in history for private higher education—a time that would lead, a few years later, to a battle between President Ronald Reagan and Congress.

The Mueller investigation is particularly thick with conflict and collusion. And the best that the media can report on is a porn star! Give me a break!
