Syphilis Makes A Comeback

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 29, 2017

         WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS THE GREATEST THREAT TO AMERICA THESE DAYS? ISIS? THE NATIONAL DEBT? THE OPIOD CRISIS? HOW ABOUT SYPHILIS?

         SYPHILIS, THE DREADED VENEREAL DISEASE WE HAVEN’T HEARD MUCH ABOUT SINCE THE AIDS CRISIS, IS MAKING A COMEBACK AFTER NEARLY TWO DECADES. MOST PEOPLE HAD THOUGHT IT HAD GONE THE WAY OF POLIO AND TUBERCULOSIS.

Condemn or Pray For Trump?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 28, 2017

         I AM A NEWSPAPER COLUMNIST AND A COMMENTATOR. I AM ALSO – FIRST AND FOREMOST – A FOLLOWER OF JESUS OF NAZARETH. THE TWO ARE NOT CONTRADICTORY.

         AS A COLUMNIST I COMMENT ON PUBLIC POLICIES AND PRIVATE MORALS. AS A FOLLOWER OF JESUS I TRY NOT TO CONDEMN PEOPLE. THE DIFFERENCE CAN BE A FINE LINE AT TIMES AND I ADMIT I DON’T ALWAYS GET IT RIGHT, BUT I TRY.

Back To What Kind Of School?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 25, 2017

         IT’S BACK TO SCHOOL TIME FOR CHILDREN AND COLLEGE STUDENTS. YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. IT MEANS MANY CHRISTIAN PARENTS WILL AGAIN RATIONALIZE ALLOWING THEIR KIDS TO ATTEND SCHOOLS THAT UNDERMINE THEIR FAITH AND EXPRESS SURPRISE WHEN THEY RETURN FROM COLLEGE AS SPIRITUAL ZOMBIES.

PC Has Gone Overboard

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 24, 2017

         ESPN HAS PULLED A PLAY-BY-PLAY ANNOUNCER FROM UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA FOOTBALL GAMES BECAUSE HIS NAME IS ROBERT LEE. MR. LEE IS ASIAN, NOT CAUCASIAN. THE NETWORK SAID ITS PRE-EMPTIVE DECISION WAS SO AS NOT TO GIVE OFFENSE.

The Afghanistan Speech

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 23, 2017

         PRESIDENT TRUMP OUTLINED A NEW STRATEGY FOR AFGHANISTAN DURING A SPEECH MONDAY NIGHT BEFORE AMERICAN TROOPS IN FT. MYER, VIRGINIA AND A NATIONAL TV AUDIENCE.

More on Barcelona

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 22, 2017

         THE NEW YORK TIMES HEADLINE REVEALS WHAT THE REAL PROBLEM HAS BEEN IN FIGHTING RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM. IT SAID: “SUSPECTS IN BARCELONA ATTACK HAD TIES TO IMAM LINKED TO ISIS.”

         A WASHINGTON POST HEADLINE FURTHER UNDERSCORES THE PROBLEM: “IN BARCELONA, A REJECTION OF ISLAMOPHOBIA.”

And Now Barcelona

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 21, 2017

         NOW WE CAN ADD THE LOVELY CITY OF BARCELONA, SPAIN, TO THE TARGETS JIHADISTS HAVE STRUCK. THIS TIME 13 WERE KILLED OUTRIGHT AND SCORES INJURED WHEN A VAN PLOWED INTO PEDESTRIANS AND DROVE ON FOR SEVEN BLOCKS BEFORE THE DRIVER GOT OUT AND RAN. HE WAS LATER CAPTURED.

         POLICE KILLED FIVE PEOPLE IN ANOTHER INCIDENT INVOLVING JIHADISTS 70 MILES AWAY FROM BARCELONA.

Sideshow

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 18, 2017

         WHATEVER YOUR PASSION – WHETHER IT BE PASSTIONATELY FOR, OR PASSIONATELY AGAINST DONALD TRUMP, ONE THING IS CLEAR: HIS PERSONALITY IS GETTING IN THE WAY OF HIS POLICIES. A MAJOR REASON WHY REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS ARE NOT ADVANCING THE PRESIDENT’S POLICIES IS THEIR FEAR OF WHAT HE WILL DO TO THEIR RE-ELECTION CHANCES NEXT YEAR.

Giving Meters

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 17, 2017

         PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND IS THE LATEST CITY TO INSTALL “GIVING METERS” TO STEM THE GROWING NUMBER OF PANDHANDLERS. PEOPLE CAN DONATE MONEY TO THE METERS AND OFFICIALS WILL THEN GIVE THE FUNDS TO HOMELESS CAUSES, NOT TO THE PANDHANDLERS DIRECTLY.

         PANDHANDLING REMAINS LEGAL IN MOST PLACES, BUT IT IS HOPED THE GIVING METERS WILL REDUCE THEIR NUMBER.

More Thoughts On Racism

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 16, 2017

         SOME MORE THOUGHTS ON WHAT HAPPENED IN CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA LAST SATURDAY.

         THERE ARE NO “PURE BRED” HUMAN BEINGS, NO MASTER RACE. HARVARD PROFESSOR HENRY LOUIS GATES, JR. IN HIS PBS SERIES “AFRICAN AMERICAN LIVES,” NOTED THAT WE ALL HAVE DNA FROM OTHER RACES AND ETHNIC GROUPS. GATES, WHO HAS BLACK FEATURES, HAD A DNA TEST ON HIMSELF AND FOUND HE IS ROUGHLY HALF IRISH.
