SO DO WE AND SHOULD WE TORTURE?

tumblr_ngomnk8PuD1r55d2io1_500

So what do we do? Give up some of our key moral values as a nation to provide security? Do the ends justify the means? Has the world changed so that America must torture suspected terrorists if it is to protect its citizens? All timely and relevant questions with the newly released Senate Intelligence report concluding that, yes, the CIA does torture, and often. Does torture really work in gaining critical information? I take a look at a number of these issues in my new column now posted. You can read it by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Our weekly radio program is approaching, and there will certainly be a lot to talk about this weekend. Renewing relations with Cuba brings up the whole immigration problem, and what we do with the millions of illegals in this country today. David Strange is a managing partner at the law firm of Whittenburg, Strange, & Walker, P.C., and adjunct professor of law at the Texas Tech University who has written “A Conservative and Compassionate Approach to Immigration Reform.” He will join us to discuss this growing problem.

Then, we will slow down a bit, many people think of monastic life as a hopeless throwback to the past, a case of let the last monk or sister standing turn out the lights. Journalist and Pulitzer Prize finalist Judith Valente sees monasteries as a window to the future – one we desperately need in our society. Is there a role for a monastic life in your future? Check out her new book, “Atchison Blue: A Search for Silence, a Spiritual Home and a Living Faith.” Read more by Clicking Here.

On November 20-21, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, chairman of the Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd), hosted the organization’s 2014 National Summit on Education Reform in Washington, D.C. At the nation’s premier annual education forum, lawmakers and policymakers were immersed in two days of in-depth discussions on proven policies and innovative strategies to improve student achievement. – Daughter Campbell spoke to the conference along with Bush, Condolisa Rice, and a number of others who are pushing educational reform.  Check out Campbell below.




Flash Mob: The U.S. Air Force Band at the Smithsonian!

I’m a big  flash mob  guy, and post a number of musical spontaneous events here on my website.  Here is a special one in the holiday season.  Starting with a single cellist on the floor of the National Air and Space Museum’s “Milestones of Flight” gallery, and swelling to 120 musicians, The U.S. Air Force Band exhilarated museum visitors with its first-ever flash mob. The four-minute performance featured an original arrangement of “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring/Joy to the World,” led by the band’s commander and conductor, Col. Larry H. Lang. Unsuspecting museum visitors including tourists and school groups were astonished as instrumentalists streamed into the gallery from behind airplanes and space capsules, and vocalists burst into song from the Museum’s second floor balcony.  Take a look.

LANDRIEU FORGOT THE LESSON THAT ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL!

imagesSxX

The nation’s last congressional election took place in Louisiana last week. And the Republicans continued to sweep the South. Louisiana incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu lost baldly, and the political pundits said it was all Obama’s fault. But Landrieu missed numerous opportunities to save her seat and get re-elected. I write this week that all politics is local. But Landrieu failed to heed this common sense advice. Check out my new column now posted and see if you agree. You can also see some political cartoonists have profiled the race below. You can read my new column now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.

Weekly Radio Schedule!

Radio 5

Boy, do we have a lively program set for this Sunday.  My first  guest is terrorist interrogator. To his friends and neighbors, Glenn L. Carle was a wholesome, stereotypical New England Yankee, a former athlete struggling against incipient middle age, someone always with his nose in an abstruse book. But for two decades Carle broke laws, stole, and lied on a daily basis about nearly everything. “I was almost never who I said I was, or did what I claimed to be doing.” He was a CIA spy. He thrived in an environment of duplicity and ambiguity, flourishing in the gray areas of policy.  Check  out his book by Clicking Here.

Then, as the year comes to a close and a new beginning is on the horizon, it’s a good time to talk about astrology. Do you believe the planets exert forces on us and that  we are all made of energy. We will talk with astrologer Joan Porte about this fascinating subject.  Read about Joan by Clicking Here.  So turn in for a great sh0w, and check your local listings for times and stations.  See you on the radio!
