Happy New Year…

January 2, 2013

Comments Off on Happy New Year…

Post by Joseph M – All across America, people celebrated the end of 2012, the beginning of 2013, the love of friends and family, and the continuation of our world despite some presumably dire predictions by an ancient people; all the while, Americans with incomes between $250,000 – $450,000 popped their corks for a completely […]

The Rich Take the Truth to Be Hard

October 18, 2012


Post by Joseph M – President Obama finally did it: he ended Tuesday evening’s debate by calling out Governor Romney (to his face!) over the 47% comment.  Romney set himself up for it; he answered the last question by declaring that he cares about 100% of America.  This proved a temptation too great to for […]

My Questions for Mitt Romney

October 16, 2012


Post by Rob T. The townhall debate is tonight. I’ve been watching President Obama for eight years and Governor Romney for 10.

Why I’m a Mormon and Support President Obama, Part 3/6: Foreign Policy

This Muslim Moment

October 3, 2012


Post by Joseph M – Let’s just admit it now and get it out of the way: Romney looked strong in tonight’s debate, and President Obama seemed  as if he didn’t want to offend anyone.  Well, the Presidential race may have gotten a little more interesting – especially because the undecided voters (those who tend […]

Hail Mary

September 25, 2012


Post by Joseph M – The Seahawks beat the Packers last night in this amazing down-to-the-wire knuckle-biter, (the finger nails were all gone by the end of the third quarter,) where Russel threw a 24-yard touchdown to Golden Tate.  Clearly, there were angels in the endzone to solidify this miracle of epic proportions.  (For optimum effect, reread […]

That “47%” includes lots of Mormons

September 18, 2012


Post by Rob T. One of my lengthiest discussions about Mormonism happened with a high school friend who had just finished his first year at a top-25 dental school. It started with his question: “Why do so many of you become dentists? Half of my class is Mormon: they’re all from Utah, they’re all married, […]

September 17, 2012


Post by Randy Astle – PART TWO: MEASURING THE MAN My thoughts in my first post were basically introductory to talking about specific issues; for my own sake as much as anything else I wanted to think through why there are conservatives and liberals within the Mormon camp and how there is room for both […]
