CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 26, 2014

         CNN AND PIERS MORGAN ARE PARTING WAYS AFTER THREE YEARS. THE REASON? LOW RATINGS.

         MORGAN HAD BECOME A SCOLD TO AMERICA, LECTURING THE DECLINING NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO WATCHED HIS PREDICTABLE SHOW ABOUT EVERYTHING FROM GUNS TO GAY RIGHTS. WE LIKE BRITISH TV SHOWS AND A LOT OF BRITISH CULTURE. WE DON’T LIKE LISTENING TO LECTURES FROM BRITS ABOUT HOW STUPID WE ARE.

         A COMMENTARY SUNDAY BY BOB SCHIEFFER OF CBS NEWS EXPRESSED HIS FRUSTRATION THAT WASHINGTON DOESN’T WORK. HE BLAMES BOTH PARTIES, THOUGH AS A LIBERAL I’M SURE HE BLAMES REPUBLICANS MORE.

         THERE ARE A NUMBER OF REASONS WASHINGTON DOESN’T WORK. I DISCUSS SOME OF THEM AND WAYS TO MAKE IT WORK IN MY NEW BOOK CALLED “WHAT WORKS: COMMON SENSE SOLUTIONS FOR A STRONGER AMERICA.” IT WILL BE PUBLISHED IN APRIL ON THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF MY COLUMN. YOU CAN PRE-ORDER IT NOW AT AMAZON.COM

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 24, 2014

         SINCE THOMAS JEFFERSON’S TIME THERE HAVE BEEN PRAYERS BEFORE THE START OF VIRGINIA’S LEGISLATIVE DAY, USUALLY LED BY A CHAPLAIN. THOUGH A DEIST, JEFFERSON SPOKE AND WROTE A LOT ABOUT RELIGION AND WHERE OUR RIGHTS COME FROM.

         NOW THERE’S TALK OF MAKING THE VIRGINIA LEGISLATIVE PRAYERS, WHICH HAVE BEEN EXLUSIVELY CHRISTIAN, MORE “INCLUSIVE,” AS THEY SAY. MY VIEW IS THAT IF THEY ARE GOING INVITE IN MUSLIM, HINDU AND OTHER PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT FAITHS, WHAT’S THE POINT? ARE THERE MANY GODS, OR JUST ONE? BUT THERE’S A LARGER ISSUE.

         AT FIRST IT DIDN’T SEEM POSSIBLE. THEN I READ IT AGAIN. A NEW POLL JOINTLY CONDUCTED BY ECONOMIST/YOUGOV HAS FOUND SEVEN OUT OF TEN PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA’S RE-ELECTION IN 2012 REGRET IT. THAT INCLUDES 55 PERCENT OF DEMOCRATS.

         EVEN MORE AMAZING IS THIS FIGURE. 84 PERCENT OF WOMEN WHO VOTES FOR THE PRESIDENT’S RE-ELECTION NOW REGRET HAVING DONE SO. AND GET THIS: THE POLL SAYS THOSE VOTERS ARE STILL UNIMPRESSED BY MITT ROMNEY AND GIVEN THE CHOICE AGAIN WOULD STILL VOTE FOR OBAMA.

CAL THOMAS COMENTARY FEBRUARY 19, 2014

         KATHLEEN WILLEY IS BACK. SHE’S THE FORMER AIDE TO PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON WHO CLAIMS HE SEXUALLY HARRASSED HER. SHE SAYS HILLARY CLINTON IS CONDUCTING THE REAL WAR ON WOMEN BECAUSE OF THE WAY SHE SOUGHT TO DESTROY HER AND OTHER FEMALE ACCUSERS OF HER HUSBAND.

         THIS HAS GOT TALK RADIO AND CABLE TV EXCITED BECAUSE THEY CAN AGAIN VISIT MONICA LEWINSKY, PAULA JONES AND ALL OF THAT OTHER TITILLATING STUFF FROM TWENTY YEARS AGO.

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 17, 2014

         A MOVIE ABOUT NOAH IS ABOUT TO BE RELEASED FROM PARAMOUNT PICTURES. GIVEN THE SUCCESS OF “THE BIBLE” AND THE FORTHCOMING “SON OF GOD” PICTURE BY ROMA DOWNEY AND MARK BURNETT, CHRISTIANS SHOULD BE GRATEFUL WHEN HOLLYWOOD PAYS ATTENTION TO BIBLICAL THEMES.

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 18, 2014

       DO YOU EVER PUT YOUR BIBLE NEXT TO THE NEWSPAPER OR TV NEWS? THE PROPHECIES MADE TWO THOUSAND OR MORE YEARS AGO SOUND AS IF THEY ARE ABOUT CURRENT EVENTS.

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 13, 2014

         TOMORROW BEING VALENTINE’S DAY I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT LOVE.

         HUMAN LOVE, EROS, IS ABOUT FEELINGS. YOU LOVE SOMEONE WHO MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD AND WHO MAYBE LOOKS GOOD. HUMAN LOVE IS ALSO CONDITIONAL. FOR SOME, WHEN A PERSON THEY LOVE STOPS BEING PRETTY, OR HANDSOME, OR BECOMES ILL, OR A PERSON BECOMES TIRED OR BORED, OR IS ATTRACTED TO SOMEONE ELSE, THOSE PEOPLE STOP LOVING.

         BUT IF THAT IS ALL THERE IS TO LOVE, IT MEANS LITTLE.
