On the Huckabee Report for February 5, 2013, you made a comment about women in the military and the concept of 'dressing for success'. Without going into detail about what you said, I just wanted to tell you that as a female soldier in Iraq, I went out with my male soldiers in full makeup AND perfume on convoys and regular duty. My soldiers appreciated that I smelled good, I felt good because as a soldier I represent the United States Army, and there was no need to look 'bad' when applying makeup can be done just as quickly as taking a 2 minute shower. I wanted my soldiers to know that I planned on coming back home safely, and bringing them back home safely as well, and if one of the things I needed to do was make life as regular as possible, including looking professional and upkept, and i would do it again if and when I am ever deployed again.
It's real simple why Sodastream was banned. Coke and Pepsi have had way too much money in Superbowl commercials for many years. Their influence got Soda Stream banned. We have had Sodastream for two years now and won't go back. Coke and Pepsi are too scared about the new kid on the block.
Thank you for finally bringing to the mainstream this kill list! People I talk to either don't believe me, or don't care, and I'm constantly amazed at how complacent people could be regarding our own government being able to kill us without due process.
Thank you for being a sane voice for a sane cause.
Governor Huckabee, I enjoyed your mention of the Surf Ballroom at Clear Lake, Iowa on today's show. I live five miles from the crash site, which was on the farm rented by my third cousin twice removed, Albert Juhl, on 3 FEB 59. I have studied the entire incident in depth for a number of years because of the family connection, and I have come to realize some things that no one else EVER mentions, such as the actual probable cause of the crash, which I'd classify as pilot error, but not so much a mistake as a precaution that went wrong due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I'll explain that and offer insight into ANYTHING you ever want to know about this whenever you want if you drop me a line at theTiGor@gmail.com and ask. Take care, T. Gordon Clausen
Hi Gov. Huckabee,First, I love your show. You're one of the only conservative talk-show hosts who is, as you say, conversational with being confrontational.
I'll get right to my point. This weekend I was watching The History Channel and there was a program about how Hitler used mass media to not just change, bur form public opinion. This program focused on how he used the movie industry to subtly, and sometimes not so subtly, change public opinion about the Jews. By the skillful use of movies created for consumer viewing in theaters, he advanced his political agenda bringing the mindset of the people of Germany to places that, a decade earlier, would never imagine they would go.
Please let me it clear I am NOT in anyway making any sort of comparison between Obama or liberals and Hitler. I know you are wise enough to know that no rational person would make that connection, but I'm sure there are legions of liberals who would immediately claim that is exactly my point.
Having said that, it seems that by examining what Hitler was doing so skillfully, we can understand the profound influence media like movies and television have on gradually shifting the public's opinion on a variety of moral issues like living together before marriage, the gay lifestyle, and abortion.
I am a Baby Boomer so I've seen huge shifts in the moral compass of America in the last 30 years, and especially in the last 10 years. Sadly, it's not a shift in a positive direction. It is troubling to me as an American, and even more troubling as an Evangelical Christian.
Marshall McKluen was right. The media is the message. I didn't fully understand that when I was in college back in the late 60s and early 70s. Now I do, and after having seen how masterfully Hitler used the media to prepare people to accept, or at least look the other way at some of the worst atrocities ever committed against humanity it's easy to see how easily our culture is affected by what we see and hear in mass media. What was once considered immoral is now not just accepted, but people of conscience who dare voice an opinion against it are labeled right wing radicals or, what is becoming one of their favorite words at worst, Nazis, and in the least, intolerant.
The forced change for the Boy Scouts to accept gay Scout leaders is a prime example. Whatever happened to moral outrage, guilt and shame about what is clearly sin? I know that's not a popular word these days, but it's alive and well and becoming more popular every day.
It leaves me wondering first, why does the media tend to be so liberal in the first place, and second, can such a powerful machine of such influence be stopped or curbed? I fear life is beginning to reflect art and not the other way around.
Never in my life have I seen such acrimony between the right and left. We need more voices of reason like you in the media. Even as a conservative, I have to dismiss most of your contemporaries as angry right wing crackpots playing for ratings rather than reason.
I hope you are able to stay on the air until you make another run for President. Perhaps you may have more influence doing what you're doing and your family certainly has more peace. But if not you, the country needs someone like you to lead us out of this liberal stew that is poisoning the country.
I truly hope you have a chance to read this. You are one of the few gentlemen in the political arena today.
