Thomas Sowell: Wealth, Poverty, and Politics

Recorded on September 8, 2016
Hoover Institution fellow Thomas Sowell discusses inequality and how it is part of the human condition. Sowell notes that political and ideological struggles have led to a dangerous confusion about income inequality in America. We cannot properly understand inequality if we focus on the distribution of wealth and ignore wealth production factors such as geography, demography, and culture. What is important is not inequality but human capital; once human capital is unleashed it creates an enormous amount of wealth for people of all classes. In addition there needs to be a sense of humility and gratitude for the generations that have gone before us for the prosperity we have today.

Fr. Michael Orsi - Call to Action at the Day of Remembrance for the Unborn on September 10, 2016


We are at a “precarious moment in our history” when churches must speak truth to power or risk the loss of a lot more than their tax statuses, former Ave Maria Law School chaplain Father Michael Orsi said in a blistering speech at a National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children event on September 10.

Orsi, now on the pastoral team of St. Agnes Church in Naples, Fl said, “For too long, pastors and churches have been bullied into believing that they can say nothing political from the pulpit,” said Orsi. The regulation that is used to silence them “was a piece of spite work” against non-profits that had opposed President Lyndon Johnson, he said.

Matt Walsh: They're not Protesters; They're Terrorists!

Matt Walsh wrote this piece on the Charlotte "protests" today at The Blaze.  Here's a sample:
Another city in flames thanks to Blacks Lives Matter and their apologists. Have we had enough of this yet? I wonder how many more buildings need to be torched, businesses looted, and innocent bystanders and police officers attacked before we finally call this what it is: terrorism.
It’s absolutely sickening to me that the media still uses the word “protest” to describe the kind savagery and chaos we saw in Charlotte last night. They were doing all of the things we’ve come to expect — setting fired, robbing stores, assaulting random white people — and even employing some tactics that we haven’t seen. For instance, a group of thugs tried to throw an unconscious white reporter into a fire. THEY TRIED TO BURN SOMEONE ALIVE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET. Sorry to yell, but I’m at my wit’s end. This is madness. And still the media calls it a “protest.”
If Charlotte was a protest and Ferguson was a protest and Baltimore was a protest, then I guess the bombs that went off in Manhattan over the weekend were a protest. I guess Orlando and San Bernardino and 9-11 were protests. If the domestic terrorism of BLM can be called a protest, why can’t the terrorism of ISIS or Al Qaeda be given the same label?

Saint Josemaria Escriva and The Traditional Latin Mass

This is from Fr Z's Blog today:

Joseph Card. Ratzinger had been concerned for years about the loss of Christian identity, which is at the heart of Western Civilization. Later, as Benedict XVI, he gave us a great tool by which we could reinvigorate our Catholic identity and, so, resist the negative influences of secularism and relativism.

Matt Walsh: Hillary Clinton is a Sick Woman Addicted to Power

Matt Walsh, writing today at The Blaze, confirms that Hillary Clinton is a Sick Woman, and his source is impeccable.
Hillary Clinton is many things, most of them bad, but she is nothing if not pitiful. There have been rumors flying around for months surrounding her declining health, and every coughing fit, every image of the candidate needing help to walk up the stairs, every time she falls down, every lengthy break she takes from the trail, every piece of evidence must lead an observant person to the conclusion that Hillary Clinton is not exactly a picture of health and vitality. And all of these concerns seemed to be officially validated late last week when an authority on Hillary Clinton’s health came forward to confirm them. That authority being Hillary Clinton herself.
