President Obama and his wife recently invited controversial rap artist Common to a poetry-reading session at The White House. People (especially cops) became upset about this invite because Common has publicly supported cop killers in his music, poetry, etc.
Bill O'Reilly voiced his disdain for the White House's decision last week and Jon Stewart over at The Daily Show mocked Bill and the folks at Fox News for being so un-hip as to criticize President Obama and Common. O'Reilly offered to debate Stewart on The Factor, and this epic confrontation took place last night.
Interesting discussion. I give "props" (that's also a "rap phrase", Jon) to both men for airing their grievances face-to-face. We need more of that in this country.
We'll be talking more about this issue on this week's podcast (which we're recording tonight and should be ready Thursday).
The basic ideas, ideals, and values that generally define and characterize the central tenets of what today might be termed "modern conservative thought."
We believe that a proper understanding of history, economics, and theology leads to certain conclusions. Many of these are the same conclusions our Founding Fathers arrived at in constructing a "more perfect union."
All ideas and opinions are welcome; not all are correct.
