Johnny Cash Movie Shows How Liberals Frame Christians

Walk the Line made June Carter Cash into a saint and had to frame Christians to pull it off. Much like our President. I loved the movie Walk the Line and I am a fan of Johnny Cash (I am wearing my Johnny Cash T-shirt as I write this post). But there was something horribly wrong with the famed romance between Cash and June Carter. We all think we know what it was. Anyone who has seen the wonderful movie, Walk the Line, knows that Cash was married when he began falling for Carter. He divorced Read more […]

The Optimism of Christmas Hymns

Our Christmas hymns demonstrate an optimism that is often better than what is found in current Christian “theologizing” about the future. Have you noticed the optimistic nature of Christmas hymns? A few examples will suffice [mainly taken from R. J. Rushdoony’s piece found here]. The very famous Isaac Watts “Joy to the World!” which says: No more let sins and sorrows grow, Nor thorns infest the ground; He comes to make His blessings flow, Far as the curse is found. He rules the Read more […]

Unfortunate Boss: Bruce Springsteen & His Real Problem

Bruce Springsteen is one of my favorite songwriters. He and the E Street Band have been a musical inspiration to me for a number of years now. This doesn’t mean I like all of his material – in fact, there’s quite a bit I don’t like – but approximately 70 songs of his are top notch in my estimation. As spectacular as Springsteen’s live performances are, perhaps his greatest skill is his lyrical storytelling. He is able to communicate depths of human emotion in profound ways and he frequently Read more […]

Mrs. O’s Rap: Beat Your Hoes, Eat Your Veggies

The majority of rap music, to the extent that muttering unintelligible profanities to a computer-generated drum pattern can be considered music, is written and recorded by low-IQ individuals for the listening pleasure of other low-IQ individuals, usually criminals in the former case and delinquents in the later. Michelle Obama, the Mother of America with an evident prejudice against fatties, is venturing into the world of rap, no doubt figuring that such an uneducated listener base will be most Read more […]

Michelle Shocked is too Shocking for San Francisco Liberals

Controversial alt-folk singer Michelle Shocked has found out how to be too controversial for San Francisco: make a statement against gay marriage. The 51-year-old singer was performing a show at Yoshi’s on Sunday when she declared: “When they stop Prop 8 and force priests at gunpoint to marry gays, it will be the downfall of civilization and Jesus will come back.” The crowd apparently did not agree. The most ironic thing of the whole affair is that Shocked is known for being, well, shocking. Read more […]

The Star Spangled Banner is Hard, Yo

This question was asked (and answered) recently by ABC News: “Why is the Star Spangled Banner so hard to sing?” I found the article to be interesting on its own, but also thought it identified common problems many moderns have with “old things” in general. With the current love affair modern man has with secularism (meaning, the present only, not noticeably concerned with either the past or the future), it is not too surprising to learn that many pop and rock singers find the National Anthem Read more […]
