Do You Know Where Your Children Are

Do you know where your children are?” is a question used as a public service announcement (PSA) for parents on American television especially during the late 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Two stations laid claim to that question during those years: WKBW-TV news anchor Irving Weinstein (1964) and Mel Epstein, Director of On-Air Promotions at New York’s WNEW-TV.  This campaign was ...

My mother was a self-proclaimed hippie up until she grew older and became intrigued by the idealism of what I call the “True Republican Era.” You know – when Reagan was in office and embodied true Conservative ideals: belief in smaller government, a truly free market, real democracy, and less interference in ...

HIGH SCHOOLER USED FOR ANTI-GUN AGENDA

The left has no boundaries or shame. They not only know not to let a good crisis go to waste; they use the victims of a crisis to advance their agenda.

Your Family Is Biased. It’s Not Your Fault, Blame The Filter Bubble

Lent has arrived. Millions of Catholics will go to mass today to receive their ashes.  Ash Wednesday begins a time of prayer, fasting and giving alms; though many people do not observe this sabbatical from self-indulgence.

Can You Be Open Minded and Moral?

These days it seems the Democrats and Republicans both see themselves as the “moral” party. The Dems defining moral as open-minded and inclusive where the Conservatives believe moral is staying true to Christian values. As a parent, it can be hard to know where to stand.
