Principles and Policies Podcast For Saturday 10/7/2017- Barry Sheets and Chuck Michaelis talk about Columbus Day and some of the nonsense surrounding the current trend to belittle and denigrate everyone involved in the settlement and founding of the United States based on some of their, admittedly, imperfect views of many things. We also discuss the concept of evil from a biblical perspective and the consequences of not grasping the concept from that perspective. The Las Vegas massacre is a case in point.

We also discuss some exceptionally silly rhetoric from conservative bashers from all over the political spectrum.
