Join the forum discussion on this post

Our Principles and Policies radio show for Saturday March 15, 2014. Barry Sheets and Chuck Michaelis seriously examine some of the truly silly stuff coming out of Washington DC and Columbus, Ohio. While we are looking at them from a humorous direction we also discuss where these problems originate and what it all means for us.

Principles and Policies Podcast for 3/8/2014- Is Homeschooling In Danger From The Feds?

Join the forum discussion on this post

Our Principles and Policies radio show for Saturday March 8, 2014. Barry Sheets and Chuck Michaelis talk with Mark Stevenson of Ohioans For Educational Freedom about the case of the Romeike family. The Romeike’s are a German family who fled their native country because of persecution of those who want the liberty to home educate their children.

We discuss the dangerous tack taken by the US Justice Department, Immigration and Homeland Security in arguing that there is no fundamental right to home educate their children and that this fact made the Romeike family dangerous.

Principles and Policies Podcast for 2/22/2014- Spring- When Politicians’ Fancy Turns To Re-Election

Join the forum discussion on this post

Our Principles and Policies radio show for Saturday February 22, 2014. Barry Sheets and Chuck Michaelis analyze the influence of money on politicians, especially one who suddenly “grow” in office. “Grow” is, of course, a euphemism for someone who drops all of their principles. In this show we say “we told you so” and refer back to a program we did in late September of 2012.

So how do “conservatives” like Paul Ryan, Rob Portman, etc., etc. get away with 1800 changes in their “principled” positions? We show why it’s all about marketing, money and re-election. We put these puzzle pieces together and it builds a frightening picture.

Principles and Policies Podcast for 2/15/2014- A Primer On Ignominious Surrender

Join the forum discussion on this post

Our Principles and Policies radio show for Saturday February 15, 2014. Barry Sheets and Chuck Michaelis analyze the recent surrender of the House of Representatives, engineered by House Speaker John Boehner, on the issue of the debt ceiling. We talk about what it means to the average tax payer, what the depth of the problem is and how badly Speaker Boehner botched the whole issue with a “clean debt ceiling,” surrendering everything and getting nothing in return.

Join the forum discussion on this post

Our Principles and Policies radio show for Saturday February 8, 2014. Barry Sheets and Chuck Michaelis review what they know about the reaction to the Nye-Ham debate at the Answers In Genesis Creation Museum in Kentucky. We talk about the presuppositions of both naturalistic/materialistic scientists and scientists who allow for non-materialist interpretations. We also discuss how definitions and presuppositions affect the way politicians like Barack Obama and John Kasich use and abuse the scriptures for their own political ends.
