Dr. Jeff Taylor is the author. I read part of this essay to you last week and I’ve referred to it a couple other times last week. Dr. Taylor is on the Dude Maker Hotline, making his first visit here. Dr. Jeff Taylor, welcome to the program, sir. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There is a creed that we’ve been talking about for about a year on this show called obedience to the unenforceable. What is obedience to the unenforceable and why does it matter? How would you apply it to Mark Wahlberg? Obedience to the unenforceable is you choose not to do things. You censor yourself. You choose to not use that language that popped into your head and you went: I can’t wait to drop this F-bomb in front of ot….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In other words, what the original progressive charitable people wanted to do was eliminate all the slobs out there, eliminate all the people that weren’t them. In other words, let’s build a master race right here in the United States. We won’t have any poor people and we won’t have to have any philanthropy or charity. The problem with charity is it creates more poor people, in other words, and….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Simpson makes the other brilliant point, which is very rarely discussed. Let’s just say that what you think is going to happen actually happens. What happens after that? Who gets to run the show? You people think there’s actually another George Washington out there? Our revolution was very unique. Our revolution was one of the very rare instances in the history of all humanity, 8,000 years of recorded history, ours was one o….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Buchanan’s point of view, and this is pretty much the point of view that you have heard me enunciate or share with the audience over the last two weeks is that you were elected to do something. You have a moral and principled obligation to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In reflecting on what was happening in France in the French Revolution -- Burke was a cosmopolitan kind of guy, so he was an admirer of other countries and of other cultures. He was an admirer of the French. No one wanted to see what happened in France happen. Burke was one of the few that had the intellectual as well as spiritual knowledge and intellect to be able to respond in a manner that would st….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What happened in that Wal-Mart in Louisiana on Saturday? This is being dubbed now as the “Louisiana heist” in the towns of Mansfield and Springhill. I don’t live near either one of the two. What happened? The EBT card system apparently, run by the Xerox Corporation, went caput for a little while while the servers were being updated or whatever it was that Xerox was doing on Saturday. Many peop….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – We’re going to step into the King Dude’s wayback machine and go back two days ago to the Gallup organization’s website. If you were perusing that particular poll on who it is that is to blame for the temporary interruption in non-essential wealth transfer payments, you may have stumbled upon this oxymoron: “Dysfunctional Government Surpasses Economy as Top U.S. Problem.” I couldn’t stop laughing just at the headline. C….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The question remains: What is to be done? This is where we turn to Dr. Russell Kirk and to Bruce Frohnen’s piece at The Imaginative Conservative. This is also posted in today’s Pile of Prep. Bruch Frohnen is writing about The Conservative Mind, which is 60 years old this year. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I brought up at the end of last hour what should be the final nail in the death of our formerly great union, should be if we actually had people of moral conscience, and enough people willing to put their moral conscience on the line, draw a line in the sand and say “Here and no further.” Here’s the headline: “Obama administration: Lawmakers, staff can get abortion coverage.” Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – You’re going to have to help me out, Mr. Gruss. I am three episodes away from the end of Season 1 of Homeland. Don’t blow it for me. The episode I just watched -- I don’t recall that this was controversial at the time. Watching it last night, how could it not have been controversial? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is why what Pope Francis said yesterday or in a series of interviews is so disturbing. I think there are some good things he said as well, but some of what he said is disturbing. That’s not just the traditional Catholic in me; that’s the world traditionalist in me. If the Catholic Church is not going to do it, then who in the hell is? Who’s left? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – As I said, we don’t have a culture any longer, not writ large. We have an anti-cult. A cult is something you organize around. It is almost always organized around a religion. This is not organized around a religion unless dollars are the religion, or unless bling is the religion, or whatever the terminology is. This is organized around radical autonomy, dubious self-promotion. There is no humility. It’s all about vanity. ….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Here’s a little Latin for you: quid leges sine moribus vanae proficient, which is “What good are laws when there are no morals?” This is from the Roman Horace. I think that goes a long way to explaining an awful lot of this. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I’m rearing daughters; many of you are rearing sons. The Earl of Chesterfield’s Letters to his Son, who he refers to as “boy,” read some of the Earl of Chesterfield -- you can find it at MikeChurch.com. The Earl tries to teach his son, who is a bastard, by the bye -- another word we need to bring back -- he tries to teach the son, through letters, how he ought to behave and how he ought to cond….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – What’s a cult? Back in the day, a couple thousand years ago, humans organized into cults. Almost all cults had their basis in religion. It doesn’t matter what religion it was, whether it was Buddhism or mysticism or Judaism or Islam before the advent of the prophet Mohammed. I guess there were Hellenic religions, worshiping or believing in Greek gods and then Roman gods and what have you. It didn’t matter because the cult ….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Folks, I want you to listen to this. This is as important as anything we will discuss this week, next week, or probably for the rest of the entire calendar year of the year of our Lord that is 2013. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…….Continue
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Let me say to you something you won’t hear very many members of the talk radio mafia, a derisive name given to talk radio show hosts by Mary Anastasia O’Grady back in 2008 because radio hosts were refusing to endorse Senator McCain back then. I don’t believe that this juncture in the lives of Americans or of Western civilization in general is that much removed from the similar situations and juncture that were experienced by m….Continue
