Third-world? Kevin, not to miss the main point of the show but unless your understanding of the term is different from the rest us, none of the countries listed at 15:55 are third-world countries... including Russia.
Googling Slovenia or Hungary and clicking on images will suffice.
Czechoslovakia? That country hasn't been around for two decades and I drove through Slovakia (including its capital) this June and two years ago, in addition to going to Prague in the Czech Republic and I have no idea how you came to the conclusion that these are "third-world" countries. And neither were they under communism (I'm from Poland originally).
Slovenia was indeed a third-world country as part of Yugoslavia for which the term "third-world country" was coined, meaning a non-aligned country during the Cold War but these countries were never third-world in the sense the word is understood today.
Lincoln the Racist Some articles and excerpts:
Lincoln the Racist
(Or: Steven Spielberg, Call Your Office)
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
"Who freed the slaves? To the extent that they were ever ‚Äėfreed,‚Äô they were freed by the Thirteenth Amendment, which was authored and pressured into existence not by Lincoln but by the great emancipators nobody knows, the abolitionists and congressional leaders who created the climate and generated the pressure that goaded, prodded, drove, forced Lincoln into glory by associating him with a policy that he adamantly opposed for at least fifty-four of his fifty-six years of his life."
Lerone Bennett, Jr., Forced into Glory: Abraham Lincoln‚Äô s White Dream, p. 19
Lincoln‚Äôs Greatest Failure
(Or, How a Real Statesman Would Have Ended Slavery)
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
"Every other country in the world got rid of slavery without a civil war . . . . How much would that cost compared to killing 600,000 Americans when the hatred lingered for 100 years."
~ Ron Paul to Tim Russert on "Meet the Press" in 2007
Lincoln the Racist In 1861 President Abraham Lincoln waged war on his own people after declaring in his first inaugural address: "I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so."
Lincoln the Racist Some snippets that can be googled:
Abraham Lincoln made crystal clear in his letter of August 22, 1862, to New York Tribune editor Horace Greeley, he had not mobilized the armed forces to free the slaves, but only to prevent the seceding states from leaving the union: ‚ÄúMy paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that.‚ÄĚ When Lincoln brought forth the Emancipation Proclamation ‚Äďa document carefully drawn so that at the time of its promulgation it freed not a single slave ‚Äďhe issued it only because at that time it seemed to be a useful means for the attainment of his ‚Äúparamount object,‚ÄĚ preserving the union. The slaves, including those in states that had not seceded, were ultimately freed for good by ratification (at gunpoint in the former Confederate states) of the Thirteenth Amendment in 1865, which is to say as a ramification of the war, which itself had not been undertaken in 1861 in pursuit of this then-unforeseen outcome.
Another excellent, challenging show Great show, I'm sure it was challenging for many nationalistic type Christians out there.
Some more relevant commentary from Jacob Hornberger at the Future of Freedom Foundation:
An Open Letter to the Troops:
You‚Äôre Not Defending Our Freedoms
by Jacob G. Hornberger, May 31, 2011
Surprised I was pleasantly surprised at Doug's even handed commentary on US foreign policy, quite surprised. This is not something typically heard from American evangelicals, save Kevin Swanson.
Though I would urge some perspective on D-Day. Here's an article by Eric Margolis, writer and US military historian, and known as someone who does not like Russia.
GETTING TO THE TRUTH ABOUT WORLD WAR II
As my Southern Baptist pastor mentioned in a sermon, at the end, Hitler claimed that Slavs were the superior race, because they had beaten the Germans. Hitler knew where the fight was.
The fact is, Russia killed 75%-90% of all Germans in uniform.
WWII was between Russia and Germany, everything else was a sideshow in comparison. No slight intended.
Great Sermon! Good show. Below is a link to a Stand To Reason show where Greg Koukl and James White talk about the issues surrounding the King James Bible.
King James Only Controversy
Starvation Not to defend communism but, besides the 1920's and early 1930's in some parts of the USSR, WHERE and WHEN was there starvation? Leningrad during the war doesn't count because it was under siege for three years but even during the worst war ever seen the USSR wasn't starving.
I don't think hyperbole helps.
Great Sermon! Just remember that the guest stated that Palin is bright, hard to take him seriously now. She's not even a bright mother.
In gaffe, Palin supports 'our North Korean allies'
Great Sermon! Can't disagree with anything the guest said but let's put things in perspective; even the Pentagon knows the US is greatly responsible for stirring the Muslim hornet's nest. Common sense to many Americans and the rest of the world but most conservative Americans are blind to the evil their state does around the world in the name of "freedom" and "democracy". It seems like a national version of Stockholm Syndrome.
A Rumsfeld-era reminder about what causes Terrorism
The West should get out of Muslim lands and foreign Muslims should be kept out of the West, that will go far in solving these issues.
What a coincidence What a coincidence; the CBC radio show The Current aired a documentary on this very issue today.
I've emailed them a link to your show on these faux adults.
The last place I'd recommend any western European to come to is the US. Canada yes, but not the US. The US has much more serious problems than Sweden does. I suppose Swedish hicks wouldn't mind the US.
Organic fretting We eat mostly organic and we definitely don't eat days old donuts (unless they're home made).
It is news to me that we and other people we know that are picky about food fret and worry over food.
Perhaps some people just have more refined taste and don't consider Krispy Kreme to be fit for human consumption?
Dave makes some great points but it doesn't appear he understands why many people are picky about what they eat. Most of the sick (or on the way to being sick) and obese people don't appear to be fretting and worrying over what they eat, perhaps they should.
Paul Washer, who has travelled widely, made some interesting remarks in some of his sermons regarding American face stuffing and the lack of refined taste in American food culture, is he also fretting or could it be that there's more to eating any old slop and being thankful?
