Devastating Critique: “I learned more from working at McDonald’s than at college”

Screen Shot 2016-08-06 at 1.13.56 PM

So, I admit it.  I dropped out of David Lipscomb University, New York University, and the University of Kentucky…  never having received a college degree.  I have had many many jobs.  I sold nurse uniforms, stuffed envelopes for a band, served eggs at the Huddle House, wiped bottoms at a daycare center, poured wine at a catering company, cleaned bed pans at the hospital, refreshed coffee at a lumber company, made presentations for coal mining engineers, and taught rich kids in Manhattan how to ride bikes inside our athletic store on Broadway.

3 reasons why Wayne Grudem is wrong about supporting Donald Trump (and you might be too)

A Phoenix Seminary professor Wayne Grudem published a piece called “Why Voting for Donald Trump is a Morally Good Choice,” in which the teacher of ethics purports to assuage the guilty consciences of Christian Trump voters.  Why would Christians feel conflicted about their Trump support?  Grudem himself explains:

He is egotistical, bombastic, and brash. He often lacks nuance in his statements. Sometimes he blurts out mistaken ideas (such as bombing the families of terrorists) that he later must abandon. He insults people. He can be vindictive when people attack him. He has been slow to disown and rebuke the wrongful words and actions of some angry fringe supporters. He has been married three times and claims to have been unfaithful in his marriages.

But Grudem goes on to say that it is morally right — and good — to support Trump anyway.  Here’s are 3 reasons Grudem is wrong.

1. He creates a fictional version of Donald Trump that is much better than the real version.

Grudem describes a fictional Trump who will be, as David French wrote, better than ever other Republican president. “Every single Republican president has failed and appoint the judges who will overturn Roe. He’ll cut taxes, ease racial tensions, rebuild the military, secure our borders, stand up to Russia, and repeal ObamaCare – all while replacing it with a superior free-market alternative. Grudem’s Trump makes Ronald Reagan look like a loser.”

THANK YOU for VOTING! 6 unbelievable demands the #BlackLivesMatter crowd just made to the Presidential candidates


While it’s easy to think of the #BlackLivesMatter movement as an earnest effort to bring equality to the races, the underlying political rhetoric shows that it is actually radical and divisive.  No where can this be seen more clearly than the list of demands a group of sixty #BlackLivesMatter organizations served to the Presidential candidates.

The New York Times reports that Marbre Stahly-Butts worked on the list of demands for over a year.  She said:

“On both sides of aisle, the candidates have really failed to address the demands and the concerns of our people. So this was less about this specific political moment and this election, and more about how do we actually start to plant and cultivate the seeds of transformation of this country that go beyond individual candidates.”

So what’s on the list?

1. Free college for black people, free living expenses, and forgiveness of student loans

Who needs Santa Claus when you have #BlackLivesMatter?  According to The Movement for Black Lives, they demand:

Reparations for the systemic denial of access to high quality educational opportunities in the form of full and free access for all Black people (including undocumented and currently and formerly incarcerated people) to lifetime education including: free access and open admissions to public community colleges and universities, technical education (technology, trade and agricultural), educational support programs, retroactive forgiveness of student loans, and support for lifetime learning programs.

They go on to demand free cost of living allowances as well.
