Wow. Sorry for the length. I knew it was running long, but 20 minutes??


But this is me. I get started on something and it’s hard to shut me up.

One correction: I think I said something about 43% of people being unemployed. Whoa. Obviously, that’s not right. I think the 43% stat is the percentage of people under qualified to find work in our country. (Which would obviously be a direct result of our crappy educational system). That’s not the unemployment percentage. Wow. Can you imagine unemployment at 43%??

Uh, let’s not imagine that.

Here are the links to the articles I mentioned in today’s podcast:

Is Obama Smart? A case study in stupid is as stupid does

Wisconsin Republicans Hold On to Senate Majority in Contentious Recall Election

Thanks for listening. Be safe.

P.S. I used this microphone for the podcast, in case you’re in the market for one. It works pretty good and it’s reasonably priced!

P.S.S. I gathered, from the little that Dude told me, that the interview went okay. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when the gal was talking to him just to see how he conducted himself. He said it only lasted ten minutes, which tells me that he probably won’t get the job. (I mean, a short interview time is not necessarily an indicator that the interview went badly, but in my experience, short interviews are not generally a good sign). I would never tell him this, but I hope he doesn’t get this particular job. It’s quite a drive away from home and he can do better, in my opinion. However, if they offer him a job, he’ll take it with the intention of continuing to look for a better job down the road.

Audio Teaching: Truth Matters: Part One

by Dan Gallagher
Truth Matters
We believe that there is such a thing as absolute truth. We also believe that the very concept of absolute truth is under attack. Truth Matters is a series of teachings in which we will examine the existence of truth, seek to discover what truth is, and learn what it means to walk in the light of truth.

As we enter the 21st century, the concept of truth is more and more under attack. Douglass Grothius states clearly in his book, Truth Decay, that “Truth Decay is the cultural condition in which the very idea of an absolute, objective and universal truth is considered implausible, held in open contempt or not even seriously considered.” In this introductory teaching, Dan Gallagher uses practical examples to powerfully communicate our need to explore both the role of truth and the impact of error in our everyday lives. Dan sets forth an overview of this teaching series and begins with the foundational need to be a truth seeker.

Part One: Truth Seekers
This teaching, Truth Seekers, explores in detail what it means to be a truth seeker, the value of truth, the price one must be willing to pay for truth, and the qualities that are common to all truth seekers. The listener will also thrill to learn how available it is to find and know the truth, and discover the relationship between wisdom and truth. The study concludes with a few examples of genuine truth seekers and why truth appears to be hidden, yet easy to find.
