SORT BY Relevancy
Freemasonry was designed by thinkers, for thinkers. The most realistic qualifier is how a man answers a fundamental question; Do you read?
Our history includes ignominious confrontation at various points with church and state. We have had our 'ouch' moments as Professor Steven Bullock conveniently defined for us in the reaction of America to a version of masonry that had become overbearing dining on privilege. The Order was shamed and routed, only to come out of the shadows into a changed political landscape forever ready to repel such behaviour.
During a period when the superstitions of religions reined supreme, freemasonry was heavily sanctioned. When monarchs became uncomfortable, the Order was driven underground. And we are reminded, when the sounds of battle echo in our ears, how combatants laid down their weapons drawn out by mason recognizing mason. Doesn't it seem to trivialize an organization of thinkers, to declare freemasonry is a social organization?
When gentlemen sit down to talk, good taste dictates cordiality. Good manners among gentlemen expects good food and drink. As we relax, we talk. As we talk we offer something worth saying. We exchange ideas. The best minds connect with the best music, the best literature, the best experiences. Life becomes a matter of exploration to satisfy curiousity. The close can't get in. Philistines can only mockingly accuse us of elitism. And the Order passes through time, absorbing the influence of philosophy.
Is this the elixir against conservatism that comes with creeping old age? One could argue, the lively ideas of our Order form what Ponce de Leon searched but never found. Fountain of Youth? Too radical?
THE NATIONAL REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS GOTTEN ITSELF IN A REAL PICKLE AND IT HAS NO ONE TO BLAME BUT ITSELF. WEAK PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES, UNTRUSTWORTHLY LEADERS IN BOTH THE SENATE AND THE HOUSE, AND A MUCH TOO WILLING ATTITUDE TO GIVE OBAMA EVERYTHING HE WANTS HAS LED TO THIS. BUT NOW WITH NON-INSIDERS LEADING THE PACK FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION AND THE SPEAKER HAVING SUBMITTED HIS RESIGNATION, EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 31ST, WILL THE NATIONAL ESTABLISHMENT WAKE UP OR WILL IT JUST CONTINUE WITH BUSINESS AS USUAL? THAT IS THE QUESTION THAT MARK COLLIER, MY REGULAR WEDNESDAY GUEST, AND I WILL DISCUSS WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THE ULTIMATE ANSWER WILL DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT THE BASE OF THE PARTY STAYS WITH IT IN THE UPCOMING ELECTION. MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, THE BASE IS UPSET AND IS NOT GOING TO ACCEPT ANOTHER BIG TALKER WHO THEN FOLDS WITH THE FIRST HAND DEALT.
I HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US FOR A ROUSING DISCUSSION OF WHERE WE ARE AND HOW WE GOT THERE. WHAT HAPPENS GOING FORWARD WILL TELL US A LOT ABOUT THE FUTURE OF AMERICA AND WHETHER OR NOT SHE CAN STEM THE TIDE OF TYRANNY. THE SHOW WILL BE LIVE AT 9 PM, THEN AVAILABLE ON DEMAND AT ITS CONCLUSION.
Tonight we discuss the Republican Debate!
3 others will be on the program: Caller of the program Herold, who worked under the George H.W. Bush Administration and the Clinton Administration, Steven Whiteman, a facebook friend of mine and political commentator, and James Clary, friend of the program and political Libertarian Commentator.
In our changing times, is it possible to be socially liberal in our views and stay true to our religious beliefs??? Imagine living in Ireland, voting in favor of same sex marriage and still remaining a Roman Catholic. The church has already "weighed in" on this question. Naturally, the Church will not sanction same sex marriage. We at the Coffee Club raise this question to our listeners. Also, why not allow Priests and Nuns to marry??? Call us at 646-595-3247 and share your views with The Rebellious Rev and Dr. Marc.
This week's episode of "The Druth About..." we delve further into the ideologies and principles of libertarianism and what it means to be a libertarian. We will do a comparison and contrast between conservativism, liberalism and libertarianism from the perspectives of the Republicans, Democrats and Libertarians.
We are NOT endorsing the Libertarian Party nor does the Libertarian Party endorse this show or this network. In fact, it is very likely that the Libertarian Party doesn't even know this platform exists.
Tune in on Thursday evening at 9:00 pm Eastern / 6:00 pm Pacific and be part of the discussion.
Tonight on "The Druth About..." Dru and Brandi will explore what it means to be libertarian. Topics will include the Libertarian Party platform, libertarianism in general and different types of libertarianism.
Libertarianism comes in several different forms just as any other form of political ideology. Republicans have their own version of libertarianism as well as authoritarianism, conservativism and extremism. Democrats have their Marxism, Communism and Liberalism.
Libertarians are not exempt from their various factions. Libertarians have the anarcholibertarians, right and left leaning libertarians, libertarian socialism and just plain ol' libertarianism.
Join us tonight and be part of the discussion.

Tonight's Special Guest: Marine Corp Veteran Terry Sharpe . Marine Corps veterans tired of seeing fellow Marine Andrew Tahmooressi stuck in Mexican prison are traveling nearly 300 miles by foot to Washington, D.C., to tell President Obama to do whatever he has to do to get Mexico “to turn our Marine loose.”
Marine Corps veteran Terry Sharpe is 63 years old and began walking the 287 miles from his home in Summerfield, North Carolina, to Washington, D.C., two weeks ago to raise awareness about Tahmooressi, who has been in a Mexican prison since March.
Special Guest: Former Marine & Navy JAG Officer, Conservative Chuck Smith - Why is our Country in the shape it is in? What can citizens do to make their voice heard?
