Like a lot of other Americans, I have been shocked in recent weeks at the number of businesses that cannot find workers. My daughter and I stopped at a fast-food restaurant here in South Bend, Indiana, two weeks ago on our way home from Chicago. After waiting 40 minutes in the drive-thru line, the beleaguered employee at the window handed us our food and apologized profusely. "I'm so sorry. We are way understaffed," he explained. "I have to close the store." This was 5:30 on a Saturday evening. How much money did that particular store lose, having to close for lack of staff in the middle of the dinner hour on a weekend night?

For sure, Democrats rejoiced as they watched Republicans painfully twist in the wind at the beginning of LGBTQ Pride Month, trying to figure out how to position their party on this issue.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel got flak from the right and from the left, as she essentially waved a white flag, declaring Republican Party neutrality on a key issue of our cultural conflicts.

"We will continue to grow our big tent by supporting measures that promote fairness and balance protections for LGBTQ Americans and those with deeply held religious beliefs," she tweeted.

Flag Day 2021

In 1989, a deeply divided Supreme Court invalidated the laws that prohibited the burning of our American flag in the case Texas v. Johnson on the basis of free speech. Since then, the symbol of our nation has been dishonored and diluted. Other flags are being flown in place of our American flag. Other flags are being flown with our American flag. Some flags (such as "BLM" flags) are flown to separate and divide Americans, not unite Americans.

There is a movement to fly the rainbow "Pride" flag in June on U.S. military bases. Of all the places that should only fly the Stars and Stripes should be any place associated with the defense of our nation. The Department of Defense is tacitly allowing "Pride" flags on bases. I believe that Americans should only salute the red-white-and-blue.

Listening to all the rhetoric in the popular media, you would think America is the most unfair, racist nation in the world. You would think that Black Americans are uniformly living in oppression and poverty, with no hope for the future, save the federal government arriving on the scene to their rescue.

Sorry, liberals, to trouble you with facts. But indeed there are facts. And the facts tell a far different story than what we are hearing.

Let's start with the most recent annual report of the Census Bureau: Income and Poverty in the United States: 2019.

As the nation's oldest biblical creation ministry that reaches millions worldwide through our radio program, Creation Moments has seen first-hand how intimidation has been used as a weapon to support such non-biblical philosophies as Darwinism. Indeed, those who reject evolutionism are portrayed today as haters of science when, in fact, the exact opposite is true.

Saul Alinsky, the Marxist "Community Organizer" who became a hero and mentor to many of today's political left, laid out his methods in his book, "Rules for Radicals." Intimidation, he wrote, made the rest of his methods work and was the single most important operating principle. Indeed, "intimidation" has been used for years with evolution, the foundation of Marxism. You'd better get on the bandwagon of evolution or be cut-off from all funding, your good job, and association with other scientists!

If there is one reason why problems associated with race in America persist, it is because we pretend to address problems caused by one sin by exchanging them with other sins.

President Biden has just issued a proclamation recognizing 100 years since the race massacre that occurred in the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1921.

Greenwood was a wealthy Black neighborhood, a center of Black business, known as Black Wall Street, that was ravaged in two days of rioting by white racists. It resulted in the death of hundreds and the loss of property of thousands.

What is systemic racism? Systemic racism occurs within a government that uses money from people of influence to elect government officials who will promote their agendas.

For example, Margaret Sanger, a renowned racist and eugenicist, helped to promote an agenda of genocide which included birth control to what she considered to be the less needed communities of people on the planet. In her own words, Sanger said that colored people were like "human weeds" who needed to be exterminated.
