God's Comic

This is Thanksgiving week and I think it is important that we seek to give thanks not just for the obvious but also for the mundane and overlooked in our lives. Books, for example, are a vanishing item in our Internet new world. Ask a kid under 12 what is the latest book he has…

On Sunday night Nov 27 the GMC channel will exclusively air the movie that was created from my rant about “Christmas vs Halloween” that was sampled on the GoFish song “Christmas with a Capital C.” The movie is called Christmas with a capital C as well and so I thought I would revisit a blog…

I write this on a Monday, which makes me wonder how many of us actually know the meanings of the days of the week? Monday is an ancient Gallic word Mun-dean where we get the word “mundane”. Monday being the start of the workweek is dreaded and a reminder of the beginning of another difficult…

Tonight is Halloween. For those of you unfamiliar with the holiday it’s a beautiful time of year where small children are encouraged to pretend to be someone else and come to the homes of strangers and ask for candy. Ironically the other 364 days of the year we spend telling children NOT to take candy…

In Oregon they have a new curriculum mandatory for all students from 11-18 yrs old called “practicality in life skills”. This is a new class and somewhat unorthodox but as one teacher put it “ We as educators can do the most good for our students by helping them to be self sufficient without judgment…

I went to the Dr. the other day because my wife said there was a spot on my nose and I should have him look at it. Wives after all these years are still incredibly naïve when it comes to male health. The first rule of thumb is always “ if there is something on…

Children aren’t born with manners. No, they have to learn them. In every area of life, from how to play nice with each other, how not to hit, or even how to eat in front of others. At the dinner table untrained children burp and talk with their mouth full. That’s why it is incumbent…

My son is fifteen years old. For those of you that haven’t had the pleasure of raising a boy from infancy it’s really quite simple. You ‘re only role for the most part is to keep him from killing himself. Meanwhile he’ll be climbing anything he can find and searching for creative ways to break…

Liberals cuss…a lot! Cussing to a liberal doesn’t represent crassness or crudeness. How could it? To be crass and crude means one is kowtowing to a puritanical backward way of seeing culture. Liberals don’t believe in “The” Bible, they believe in “A” bible though. The Constitution represents the liberal’s omnipotent scriptures. Don’t believe me? Liberal…

1911- “Boys will be boys”. /2011 “Boys will need Ridlin”. 1911- “A stitch in time saves nine”/2011“ Aren’t a dozen socks a buck 99 at Walmart?” 1911- “ A penny saved is a penny earned” / 2011 “ Good news, Visa extended our rate!” 1911- “ Children should be seen and not heard”/ 2011 children…

Brad Stine
about

Brad Stine

"Brad Stine is on a mission – a mission to free us all from the chains of political
correctness and prevent our eventual ‘wussification.' From his Nashville
stronghold, Stine is mounting his crusade against these hypocrisies, all of which
are explored in his highly anticipated 4th album/DVD, aptly titled
‘WUSSIFICATION!'

"You know what offends me?... Offended people," says Stine. A staunch
supporter of first amendment rights and foe of political correctness, Stine asserts
that rights should be universally applied. "In a country with guaranteed rights to
freedom of religion, its citizens are constantly trying to make faith in public
spheres illegal, I am offended by that contradiction and want to talk about it as a
comic." The strength of his conviction about our freedoms can be found in many
places on WUSSIFICATION – from "Merry Christmas Too!" (the right to celebrate
religion) to "At Least We're Not France!" (the responsibility to take action as a
country) to "Spank" (the ability to discipline our children the way we see fit).

What would cause the wussification of Brad Stine? "I hope that nothing ever
wussifies me to deny my own personal beliefs," he says. "Brainwashed wussies
have been taught that standing up for yourself and defending your personal point
of view makes you a close-minded hate monger." Stine stops short of defending
his point of view as the ONLY one, adding "...one must also be respectful of
dissenting belief while supporting their own." He is, after all, an inclusive figure
who trains his comedy to attack ideas, not the people who embrace them.
Stine's faith forces him to acknowledge the respect and dignity of all… even the
wussies with whom he disagrees!

Stine models his approach to comedy after legendary practitioners that he has
known and loved over the years. Despite George Carlin's disdain for theistic
beliefs, he has been a big influence on Stine. "I always enjoyed Carlin for turning
the tables on culture. He is an excellent writer that has endured for decades."
More current comedic touchstones are Brian Reagan, Paula Poundstone, Jim
Gaffigan and Monty Python, among others.

Fear not, true believers – with his brand new album, Brad Stine is here to save
the world from WUSSIFICATION – one politically-correct, offended person at a
time!"
