Starbucks and Its Unconscious Employees
By Laurie Higgins   |   05.30.18
On Monday, there was a looong article in the Chicago Tribune's business section on Starbucks "unconscious bias" training (which, unless Starbucks' employees are unconscious, should probably be called "subconscious-bias training," but—to borrow from millennials—whatever).
Intolerant Journalist Demonstrates Biblical Ignorance
By Laurie Higgins   |   05.21.18
Dahleen Glanton, columnist for the Chicago Tribune, recently penned a column about homosexuality that began with this ironic statement: “It is painful to acknowledge one’s own intolerance.” Glanton doesn’t say who’s experiencing this pain, but one thing’s for sure: It’s...

By Laurie Higgins   |   05.10.18
There’s a troubling piece titled “Time for a Compromise on Transgenderism” posted on National Review online and written by purportedly conservative, “gay vegetarian”  J. J. McCullough. In condescending language, McCullough argues that it’s time for Americans to hop...
Michelle Wolf’s Lewd Lupine Pasquinade
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.30.18
Full disclosure: I hate roasts of any kind. White House Correspondents’ Dinner gut-busting pasquinade by jokester Michelle Wolf makes it difficult to refrain from being as despicable as she was. First, some of her jokes: “Of course, Trump isn’t here…....
You Don’t Want to be a Burden, Do You?
By Nancy Valko   |   04.30.18
An April 13, 2018 USA Today op-ed titled “Make an End-of-life plan or Lose your Money and Choices in your Dying Days” begins with the statement “End-of-life care can bankrupt your family and rob you of choices. End the denial about dying. Make a plan in case you end up seriously ill and frail.” Ms. Bryant is very upfront about using the economic argument about aging and the enormous toll it can take financially and personally on the family as well as medical costs.
‘Net Neutrality’ in Illinois: Just One More Leftist Act of Deception
By John Biver   |   04.17.18
Last year the Federal Communications Commission overturned the Obama-era policy (referred to as “net neutraliy”) that “had placed Internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon under the strictest-ever regulatory oversight.” The “net neutrality” debate has gone for several years but...
Defying Hollywood, ‘I Can Only Imagine’ Soars at the Box Office, Resonates with Viewers
By Tami Jackson   |   03.23.18
Hollywood stands as an eclectic, self-congratulatory private club, whose mainline members flaunt wealth and hedonism, pontificating re guns and violence and the #MeToo scandals, while simultaneously producing films overflowing with guns and violence and promiscuous and perverse sex. That coastal...
Aborting Down Syndrome People and the Monster That is Us
By Pat Hickey   |   03.12.18
I have had two children; I was old enough, when I became pregnant, that it made sense to do the testing for Down syndrome. Back then, it was amniocentesis, performed after 15 weeks; now, chorionic villus sampling can provide a...
Lunacy On The Left
By Rev. Thorin Anderson   |   03.10.18
There are certainly times when we Christian conservatives feel that all is lost, that the Left with its irrationality is in control and that reasonableness has disappeared.  It seems that the entire country is oblivious to the fact that the...
The Left Really Is Trying to Silence Us
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   03.05.18
Maybe you once thought that the left wanted tolerance and diversity, but in reality, tolerance and diversity have never been the goals of the left, especially the radical left. Instead, it wants to suppress and silence opposing views, and the...
Virtue-Signalling from Leftists on Arming Teachers
By Laurie Higgins   |   03.01.18
Leave it to Chicago Tribune lifestyle expert Heidi Stevens to come up with another dumb idea. In an essay titled “Who do we become if we give teachers guns,” in which she ruminates on the proposal to allow teachers to volunteer to be trained to use a gun in those rare instances when a gunman starts killing school children, Stevens offers this...

Winston Churchill’s Darkest Hour
02.02.18
Last Saturday I dropped off my two oldest sons and their friend at the theatre. I planned to kill a couple of hours at the bookstore, on my laptop, at a coffee shop, whatever. When I got out of the car the balmy two-degree temperature in Pittsburgh prompted second thoughts. Instead, I strolled into the theater complex, looked around, and saw a poster for “Darkest Hour.” I vaguely knew it was a movie about Winston Churchill. I bought a ticket and went in.
