GREAT ARTICLE: Flipping the Script on the Abortion Narrative

When Ryan Bomberger was 13, everything he knew about his origin story changed.

He already knew he was adopted—his adoptive parents and siblings are white, and he’s biracial, he said with a laugh, but every adoptee goes through a process of wondering why they were given up for adoption. So to realize his birth mother couldn’t keep him because he was the product of rape was shocking.

“It was devastating to think of,” said Bomberger, a creative professional and co-founder of pro-life nonprofit The Radiance Foundation.  “But because I was so loved by my parents, I turned that pain into something very constructive,” Bomberger said.

The unseen faces of abortion

In a year (2020) when pro-abortion groups saw victories in medical technology, legal fights, and abortion-as-discrimination, faces like these—of women looking for better choices—often went unseen.

Today’s highly interesting read (01/18/21): The vaccine has exposed teachers unions’ true priorities

Today’s read is from the Washington Examiner. Here’s an excerpt:

Educators in many parts of the country are now eligible for the coronavirus vaccine, which should mean one thing: No more excuses. It’s time to return to school in person, full time, as quickly as possible.

The jig is up. The vaccination is available to the majority of teachers nationwide, and the longer the unions try to delay the inevitable, the more obvious it is that this was never about the coronavirus at all. This was about power

Culinary no-no #681

Culinary no-no began on Father’s Day 2007, a beautiful summer day, when I wrote about grilling brats. And eating brats. And topping those brats. I was inspired by my wife, Jennifer who, in my admittedly unscientific opinion, ruins brats by squirting ketchup on them. Other dining taboos quickly came to mind. The original idea was to take this concept only a few months, till the end of summer and then pull the plug. Then the unexpected happened. People started reading Culinary no-no. Lots of folks. So we keep doing the no-no.

Whenever our family visits the best restaurant in Franklin, more likely than not Jennifer will make this selection.

That’s just a small portion of a much larger portion we ordered for takeout last March. Penne with Asparagus. Sautéed asparagus with fresh garlic, shallots, a touch of red pepper seeds, tossed with penne and Parmesan cheese, and let’s not forget the chicken.

No surprise. If my wife had to choose just three meals to digest for the rest of her life they would be, in no particular order, pasta, pizza, and chicken.

I tease Jennifer (a lot), and one time when I thought we were eating too much chicken she quickly replied that we just had fried chicken. Today it was rotisserie. Obviously she thought I simply didn’t understand the difference.

What I do get is that one of the beauties of chicken is that you can do so much with it. Take a look.

But chicken lovers like Jennifer might not like this news.

I consider that somewhat bulletin meaningless.

First of all chicken is completely safe if you handle and prepare properly.

Also, knowing culinary trends it’s entirely plausible a new government report designating some other risky food is lurking around the corner.

And personally, Jennifer’s attitude will be who cares? She’s not about to eliminate chicken from her diet.

Today’s highly interesting read (01/17/21): Fighting the Good Fight: What I Learned at the Rally

Image may contain: 1 person, standing, crowd and outdoor

Everyone at last week’s Capitol was an evil, violent, Constitution-hating Trump supporter, insurrectionist.

I call BS.

Today’s read is from Jeff Minic. He has four children and a growing platoon of grandchildren. For 20 years, he taught history, literature, and Latin to seminars of homeschooling students in Asheville, N.C., and is  the author of two novels and two works of nonfiction. Here’s your excerpt:

Here’s what I witnessed in Washington on Jan. 6 at the Save America March.

Surrounding me were patriotic Americans who had traveled from all parts of our land to protest what they believed was a fraudulent election. My daughter’s friend had secured VIP seating for our party, but few people sat during the event. Instead, many of them danced, tapped their feet, or sang to the music from the loudspeakers. Others chatted and laughed with friends, stood on the chairs to snap pictures of the enormous crowd, and enthusiastically applauded the speakers.

To the amusement of those who could see him, a middle-aged man with yellow-tinted hair, silver earrings, and golden sandals danced up and down the aisle. The three women from Florida next to me bounced up and down in time to the music, and some of the teenage girls who were in our group spent time braiding their friends’ hair.

Not only were most of these people happy—the event seemed more like a big, wonderful party than a protest—but they were also kind and polite. Those slipping through the crowd were always saying “Pardon me.” When an older woman with a walker fell, others rushed to her aid and returned her to her chair. Noticing that I was breathing into my hands—it was cold, and the wind was brisk—one of the Florida ladies offered me a small disposable hand warmer. I declined, but appreciated this sweet gesture.

After President Donald Trump finished speaking, our group decided to skip the march to the Capitol and return home. The 11 young people were exhausted, and all of us were cold, and so we missed the mayhem the media then used to characterize the entire event.
