Can Freedom Survive or Is the Fix In?

Can Freedom Survive or Is the Fix In?

With their 24/7 news cycle and group-think barrage of positive/negative reinforcements the media seeks to promote those who will maintain the status quo and disqualify those they fear. Will we rise up and demand a return to limited government, personal liberty, and economic freedom, or will we the people meekly accept our assigned role as we the sheeple?

Best Marketing for a Small Business

For a small business, marketing and advertising seeks an answer to the question “How will prospective customers find me?” People today no longer reply to direct mail.

Hating Tim Tebow

Hating Tim Tebow

Those who belong to the world do indeed hate Tim Tebow. He stands for much of what our postmodern popular culture despises: sexual purity within the bonds of natural marriage, the sanctity of human life, selflessness, personal charity, humility and much, much more.
