Other than good Christian broadcasting, which is getting more and more difficult to find, I like listening to conservative talk radio. I like the talk radio hosts which are not so loud and brash and controversial. I like the ones who talk about issues without being ridiculous or insulting. But I do want them to "tell it like it is" and call a duck a duck if it quacks and walks like one. You know what I mean. The station which I prefer lately is Radio 990, WNTP, which airs in my area, but as with all radio stations, you can get it online. I won't talk about the particular shows I don't like, but will say that my favorite one is Bill Bennett's "Morning in America." I listen most days after having my devotions and while making and having breakfast. Works out nicely, as it finishes up about the time I need to get to teaching chores and housework. I also like Dennis Prager; I can get some of that one during lunchtime.
Did you know there are hungry children in America? Some people didn't know that, but it is true, unfortunately. And even more sadly, there are plenty of them. Well, Radio 990 is joining in an annual campaign with the Feed the Children organization. This is a group we already support and may be one you would like to look into. You know, as conservatives, we believe that it's not the government which should be taking care of us. We believe that individuals and churches can and should fulfill the mandate of Scripture to help the needy. But you know, as conservatives, we also need to be people of action and not just ideals. So, I think that is one of the reasons that the people on WNTP are strongly encouraging people to help this organization, if at all possible. The current liberals in power want the citizens of our country to think that large government is the answer to everything. Now, we beg to differ, right?
Hey, I have another suggestion. Check out this post I made on our Hands and Hearts site to see what that is. One of many ways to save money so you have more to give.
Let's all pray that we can find more ways to be useful and caring while we're complaining. I have to tell that to myself all the time. Often it is said that we can make a difference, and I believe that's true. Imagine if every one who were able to would exchange a meal or two(or some of the other things we lavish on ourselves) and send in $25.00 to help with the real needs in our country (note I said REAL)? Wouldn't that be better than being taxed to death?
