The Civil War of Ideas

Happy 158th Anniversary Gettysburg Address!  Allen Thomas, frequent guest and author, is in studio with Kim to talk about Lincoln’s famous speech.  Kim encourages listeners to tune in to the America’s Veterans Stories this weekend.  There will be three separate shows featuring our veterans.  Sunday at 3pm Kim interviews Nellie Paler, a Vietnam Veteran Marine pilot.  Saturday and Sunday at 10pm features other veterans.  Each show broadcasts on KLZ 560 AM and KLZ 100.7 FM.

The Gettysburg Address is one of the most important speeches from our 16th President Abraham Lincoln.  Lincoln spoke of human equality, sacrifices of the many, union of the nation, rebirth of our nation and a nation of liberty.  Lincoln and George Washington are giants in history as they were committed to the founding principles of America:  that all men are Created Equal with Rights from God of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  Kim reminds listeners to give Karen Levine (303-877-7516), with RE/MAX Alliance, a call if they are interested in their family visiting Santa on Saturday, December 11th, 10-noon.  Karen has reserved three spots for Kim’s listeners.

Steve Cruice with Three Points Financial explains the advantages of working with Three Points Financial.  As a fee only firm, they offer tax planning, investment strategies and retirement counseling.  Tax planning is vitally important with all that is happening in Congress.  One massive infrastructure spending bill has been signed by Biden while the “social infrastructure” bill is working its way through the House and Senate.  The potential for negative consequences to investment portfolios is high at this time.  Steve emphasizes that inflation is a tax on everyone.

Lesley Hollywood, grassroots activist, invites everyone to a “No Jabs For Jobs” rally Saturday, November 20th, 1-3pm on Thornton Parkway.  The vaccine and mask mandates are government overreach using force and coercion.  We must stand up to protect our rights, including our privacy rights.  This tyrannical force must be stopped.

Hal Van Hercke, owner of Castlegate Knife and Tool and sponsor of both shows, announces the opening of a pop-up store at the Castle Rock Mercantile.  The store is fully stocked with kitchen related tools, steak knife sets and carving sets, and other merchandise.  Hal notes that they have trained knife sharpening technicians for any dull knives that may be in your home.

Allen and Kim continue their conversation highlighting Allen’s new op-ed, The Civil War of Ideas.  Our country is divided due to the COVID-19/Wuhan-China virus disruption.  We have gone from “two weeks to flatten the curve” to “coerced jabs for jobs.”  This is pure tyranny.  As a nation we must acknowledge that this will not work.  We are fighting the same battle as the Civil War where some people are considered inferior to others.  Looking at the past we know that we have fallen short many times, including in the equality of freedom.  However, we have worked to rectify our shortcomings.  We paid our penance with the death and destruction of the Civil War.  Humans and human nature are not perfect however the American Idea is perfect and we must preserve it.  Tyranny is not the answer.  Reason over emotion must persevere.  In conversations over the holidays do not lay blame but be persuasive in your defense of liberty.
