Michael Medved & Styble on KIRO

Nationally-syndicated radio newstalker, renowned film critic, prolific author and intellectual leading light Michael Medved has graciously agreed to appear during the 10 pm hour of the Sunday, August 5, 2007 edition of The Bryan Styble Program on KIRO.

Medved's broadcast is heard weekday afternoons noon-3pm Pacific Time on nearly 300 stations, and originates at KIRO sister-station KTTH/Seattle. Inasmuch as Medved is available for queries and challenges by Seattle-area newstalk listeners for fifteen hours every week, Styble will not take calls during this hour, opting instead to maximize what may be a once-in-a-career opportunity to probe the magnificent Medved mind.

Following the Medved session, Styble will of course offer two hours of Open Lines for Open Minds, taking caller comments on any subject in—or out—of the news.

I thought that Micael Medved should have been challenged for his cozy relationship to the Bush Administration.

This would have been an excellent opportunity to question how this war is legitimate and to find Medved's justification for the ambush on our constitutional rights.

Medved always ends his day with "the greatest nation on God's green earth." I would like to know where I can find a spot on this planet that actually belongs to God. I would like to move there and live.

I know there are regions of the earth that belong to groups of people who define god as this or that but are worse off and oftern meaner than other regions that don't espouse a belief of any certain deity.

I stopped listening to Medved awhile ago because of a variety of issues, but his arrogance stands out. I have to give him credit for vast amounts of knowledge, and a lot of hard work. But his knowledge has puffed him up with pride which translates to arrogance, and his hard work is just that, alot of work.

How on earth did someone think that blacks were better off under any other system than what we have today? A hundred years ago whites made an average of a dollar a day for hard labor. Maybe a dollar and a half. And they were the most beligerant, rascist piggots, and fanatics in all of history. Why they fought a war that was a major catastrophe to give the blacks the right to have freedom of choice and not be slaves, but them damn whitefolks was no damn good in their stinking hearts. They just are the meanest, two faced, people on the entire face of this here planet. They gave the blacks the rights to vote, to be properous just like themselves. For a buck a day for hard labor. They even gave the rights for them blackfolks to be educated in public schools just like they was. Up to the fourth grade, just like them.

Do I make any sense here? Obviously Bryan was not saying that blacks were to stay in such a situation of slavery. What he was doing was comparing two different, disparate cultural conditions. As repulsive as slavery is to our modern mind, try being in a culture that never had a chance to get better as in, under Islamic influence slavery is accepted, and an acceptable social concept. In the west great lengths have been done, and accomplished in the erradication of slavery.

Which would any black rather be in. A system of stone age freedom, under the tyranny of environment, social acceptance of castes, and ignorance, or being a slave in a society that changes concepts to allow freedom from slavery.

If I was a slave, I would prefer a society where my grandchildren would have the potential to be as great a person, intellectually, physically, socially, and economically as anyone in the entire society.

The Universal Constant, and the mind of God.

Of all of the things in our wondrous universe there remains only one that can be called universally present and equal at all junctures. The speed of light and everything else is measured by it. It is ever present, and yet so fleeting that it itself cannot be measured.
The passage of the universal present moment. Time itself.

How quickly it passes from the future to the past, or how short is its substantive quality is impossible to measure.

But I will give it a subjective time frame of one quadrillionth of a trillionth of a second.
This passage of time gives all that we perceive as real, with substance and depth, only as thick as a thought, nothing more.


Everything we see and comprehend in the cosmos are God's thoughts. We are, ourselves free thoughts, allowed to think our own thoughts, and to choose any mental direction we want. This the "image of God" spoken of in Genesis.
