Fox News and me

Let me start off this post by writing when the Fox News channel came to my cable system I was very excited.For years I became a faithful viewer.

Some of the shows I very much liked was Newswatch. On it a panel  talked about how the media reported on different news events.
Then there was a show called After Hours which was hosted by Cal Thomas. Cal would have somebody in the news on, and also some soul from the entertainment world on. Cal had an idea lets discuss things not put those down who disagree with us. As happens too much on TV, and in the world of politics.
I also liked the show Hannity and,Colmes.The two hosts were different like night, and day. Though you could tell they liked each other as people. My views most of the time were closer to Hannity’s,but Colmes ways a somebody on the left who those of us on the right could like.
Over the years I became a faithful viewer of Bill O’Reilly. Though Bill was not always on the right when it came to politics.I liked how he stood up for the comman man. I would eat my dinner every week night while I watched his program. I loved how Bill reached out to the family of a young girl who was killed by a man who should have been in prison, or at least not living in America.
I did not always agree with Bill. I did think his book on killing Jesus should have used the Bible more as a guide than other items. I also did not like some of the things he wrote about President Reagan in his book on killing Reagan. So I did not always agree with Bill. Still I watched him every night. In fact the night seemed different when he was away from his chair.
I believe today Fox News has changed, and not for the better.
First off Cal Thomas is not on. A choice Fox made. Thomas always was a light in a dark room,and had wisdom in the points he made. He is a guy that everyone can look up to. Even those who don’t agree with his politics, or his evangelical Christian faith. Cal goes out of his way to be friends with everyone.No matter if they are on the left, or right. At the same time he doesn’t back down from his deeply held convictions.
Fox News a few weeks ago took off Bill O’Reilly. Perhaps they had no choice. There were women who said he had mistreated them.Though those cases had not gone to court.It drives me nuts that those on the left including those who are yelling for women’s rights had no trouble, or little trouble with how Bill Clinton treated women. While he was president.Those on the right don’t get their day in court. Bill loses his job for what he may have done, or not done, but Clinton remained in the White House after it was proven what he did. I would have liked Fox to have said let’s give Bill a day in court.
Fox has also canned Greta Van Susteren. Bill, and Greta won’t even given a chance to do a final show to thank their faithful fans.If I recall right both went on vacation, and then fired before they returned.I liked how Greta on her show honored police officers who had been killed just for doing their job.
So while Fox News still has good folks on the channel I have made the choice not to watch it as often.It seems to be changing. Yes, Hannity is still on. Though his show is not on at a good time for me. And Bob Beckel is still on with the network. It has changed.
Yes Fox is better at reporting the facts than the other networks.Still it seems like Fox has forgotten her viewers.
I am hopeful another news network will come to my cable that will be like Fox News when it first started.

Teens,and young people you have a fan, ( she, or he is not on 13 Reasons why )

Listen to the commentary right here and or, read it below.

Recently there has been talk about suicide among teens thanks to a TV. show.
( Young people this commentary is for you. )
Hi I’m Billy David Dickson with a thought on the Bible.
Middle school student, high school student have you ever thought there was no value to your life. You should just end it. I did as a teen.
Please know there is value to your life. You may think no one cares.I have good news, make that great news, God cares. He is for you. You know God could have shown he valued your life is a lesser way than he did. He could not have shown you,he valued you in a higher way than he did.
Lets look at how much the Lord values you teenager, and young person.
Romans 8 reads starting at verse 31. 31 “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be[a] against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.[b] 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written,
“For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”
You get that God is for you. Even if you do not think you have a fan, you do. God is your fan. He proved,he was your fan by laying down his life for you. He did so you, and I could have a relationship with God.No matter what you are facing,the answer is not what the kid on the TV show”13 Reasons Why”did. The answer is to trust in Jesus. Yes, you may still have problems, but God will help you through them. It tells us in the Bible Jesus is the friend who will stick closer than a brother.
So put your trust in Jesus. Then you will have everlasting peace even when you have trouble in your life.
That is a thought on the Bible for young people.
Until next time,
I’m Billy David Dickson

ESPN’s troubles= Middle America wants to pop a beer and listen to sports talk, they don’t want to be lectured about why Caitlyn Jenner is a hero, Michael Sam in the new Jackie Robinson of sports, and Colin Kaepernick is the Rosa Parks of football.”

A lady who defends FGM

This lady has a crazy view that is out to lunch. How can one defend an evil act done to little girls. This is sad, and sick.

There is no health benefit to FGM. Unlike the act done to little boys which this lady wants to support. She is out to lunch.

Watch the video

Trump not welcome on Ellen DeGeneres’ show

I think it is time those in political office, and those seeking office in our nation stop going on TV shows which ask important questions like what kind of underwear do you use.

At the same time I think Ellen would love it if Clinton had won the election, and wanted to be on her show. Ellen like most TV folks are out of touch with everyday American who voted for Trump.
People who are tired of having their values like marriage should be between a man, and woman.At one time we were told by the left we just needed to allow things which goes against our values. Today we are told we must embrace things like same sex marriage,and abortion. Even worst our tax money should pay for things we don’t agree with.
I am sure President Trump has more important things to worry about than Ellen not inviting him, on her show.
It might be a good idea for everyday Americans to turn her show off, and focus on the important things.
Here is the story about Ellen not wanting to have Trump on her show.

Lessons from so called TV preacher Benny Hinn

I should admit straightway that Benny Hinn is well outside the mainstream of evangelical Christianity in both his theology and practices. Many inside the world of evangelical Christianity might say that what he does has nothing to do with what “we” do. But to a watching and skeptical world, the theological and ethical differences between a Benny Hinn and those who follow much more biblical models of behavior are difficult to discern. And that’s the first lesson we can learn: We should be more direct and straightforward about “calling out” organizations that do not follow biblical models of behavior and ministry. Defending the Gospel does not mean merely defending it against the Richard Dawkinses and Peter Singers of the world, but also against the Benny Hinns and Creflo Dollars.

Secondly, Christian organizations should be models of transparency and financial disclosure. Currently, the law requires tax-exempt organizations to file Form 990s. These forms have basic information about an organization’s financial condition. The law also requires organizations to make these forms available to the public. (A great source for 990s is http://www.guidestar.com.) However, churches are exempt from this requirement.
