Chick-fil-A Lurches Further Left

Well, I wrote about Chick-fil-A a few days, and it just got worse. As I stated, this is what happens when the kids take over a company their Father built in his image. And this case, an image of family and Christian values. Oh the horror! I couldn’t be more disappointed in CEO Dan Cathy and the recently acquired wayward vision of his father’s restaurant chain. And to give a nickel to the Southern Poverty Law Center is 5 cents too many.

Chick-Fil-A Donated to Southern Poverty Law Center, Others on Left

Chick-fil-A, which has promoted itself as a Christian business, is now under fire from both sides of the aisle for its charitable giving strategy. Pictured: Demonstrators protest outside a Chick-fil-A restaurant in California on Aug. 1, 2012. (Photo: Tibrina Hobson/Getty Images)

 

Chick-fil-A donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center and other left-wing organizations that promote abortion and LGBT rights, issues that run counter to the fast-food chain’s image as a Christian conservative business.

According to public tax documents first reported Tuesday by Townhall, Chick-fil-A donated $2,500 to the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2017 despite the organization’s history of hostility toward conservative causes.

Turkey Tech – Make Thanksgiving Easier

It’s that time of year again: turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, the presence of friends and family, and a reason to give thanks for all of our good fortune in the last year.

If there’s one thing most of us want to NOT think about on Thanksgiving, it’s technology. Put the smartphones away, pack up the laptop, and disconnect for one day, right? Well, technology can actually help to bring us together on this most American of holidays, provided it’s put to good use instead of as a distraction from family time.

When Was The Real First Thanksgiving? That Depends

On October 3, 1789, America’s first President under the 1787 Constitution, George Washington, issued a historic Thanksgiving George Washington's Thanksgiving ProclamationProclamation.  Congress had instructed him to “recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God.”  This he did.  Many consider this the nation’s first Thanksgiving Proclamation.  But was it?  Well, that depends.

There had been many previous days of a general giving of thanks in America’s history, some bearing little relation to our present holiday.  Many took place long before America was a country, under the reign of the monarchs of England.   read more

Now For the Real Story – of Thanksgiving

The Real Story of Thanksgiving

Every year around this time, most schoolchildren hear the same ol’ Thanksgiving story in their classrooms across the nation. That so-called official story is a heartwarming tale of how the Pilgrims and Native Americans shared a bountiful feast together. But it does not tell the full truth about what really happened on the Plymouth Plantation.

We’re told that the Pilgrims struggled for their survival when they landed in present-day Massachusetts in the 1620’s. Half of the Pilgrims starved to death or went back to England during the first year alone because of harsh winter weather and their lack of proper farming skills. Their chronic food shortages were ultimately resolved when the Native Americans taught the Pilgrims how to plant corn the following spring and together they celebrated their blessings with a huge feast. read more

  • The F-35 has smaller accommodations for pilot survival gear than previous aircraft.
  • As a result, the first F-35 squadron to be based in cold weather has been working on a smaller survival kit.
  • An accident during testing revealed the kit actually works at 25 degrees lower than originally planned.

A survival kit designed to keep F-35 pilots alive in freezing conditions has proven its worth all the way down to -65 degree Fahrenheit. The new kit, designed by the airmen that will fly with it under their seats, is designed to be smaller than previous kits while protecting pilots from the elements until rescue. read more

Women Should Prefer Capitalism to Socialism

Socialism is great, we are told – democratic socialism, that is. Like there’s a difference. And the youth of America has really taken a shine to it.

On the flip side – we always hear that greedy capitalism hurts not only the poor, but the young. And it is said that capitalism hurts women and minorities most.

But does it really. Is socialism really the answer to the problems of opportunity and equality, especially for women?

Carrie Lukas, President of Independent Women’s Forum says clearly no. In the following Prager University video, Carrie proves that socialism does the opposite of what it claims. read more
