It Was Mom

Conservatives are losing in the arena of media and culture. If we are going to turn this country around we must make headway in the culture. This Sunday is Mother’s Day and I think that we should promote our own positive messages about mothers and motherhood.

Conservatives are losing in the arena of media and culture. If we are going to turn this country around we must make headway in the culture.

This week a YouTube video showing a young woman getting an abortion and explaining how happy this event was for her went viral. I am not going to share a link to this video because I don’t want to give this disturbing lack of respect for human life any more hits then it already has. This young woman mentioned how great she felt to be able to create life and how great it was to be able to take that life.

This Sunday is Mother’s Day and I think that we should counter this disgusting message with our own positive messages about mothers and motherhood. A good mother can truly change the world. The foundation of any civilized society is the family and if the family is the foundation the role of Mother would be the cornerstone. A good mother is the primary source from which her children gain knowledge. She teaches then to read, write, count, add, subtract, multiply, right, wrong, sharing, service, selflessnes, manners and countless other things.

I challenge you to think about what your mother has meant to you or what mothers mean to society and share this video with your personalized thoughts and the hashtags #itwasmom and #MothersDay. Lets share the message of all the good that mothers can accomplish and let the world know that motherhood can be a great force for good in the world.

Upcoming Show – CU Talks: New Year! New Show!

CUTalks-Avatar-1400x1400Every Thursday, 9pm Central, join James Pisano (The Chief), Nikolaos Dimopoulos (Nikos), and Leslie P for an hour of Conservative Discussion with Real People from Real Places in America, NOT DC and NOT the Media.

Episode 2014.01 is the debut of our merged format – Nikos and Leslie from the podcast CU Talks, and Jim (The Chief) from Hangout with The Chief.

We’ll be discussing our new format which we plan to be audio-only broadcast for an hour, and on the 4th Thursday of each month we’ll make it a video hangout, and open up to guests. Then we’ll move on to discuss the new budget deal, income inequality, upcoming midterms, and trying to stay positive.

About the show:

CU Talks is the one hour weekly program from The Conservative Union, largest conservative community on Google Plus. We talk politics, with a focus on informing and educating our listeners, and finding ways to create the positive future we all want for ourselves and our posterity.

Your hosts will include James Pisano (The Chief), Nikolaos Dimopolous (Nikos) and Leslie P.

  • The Chief lives in California, is currently active duty in the Coast Guard, and drives a Prius – not because he’s afraid of global warming, but because it made sense for him to purchase it – FREE MARKET, YEAH!
  • Nikos was born in Greece, got here as soon as he could, will be a US Citizen eligible to vote in 2016, and is the American Dream personified.
  • Leslie is a native Texan and a redhead, she’ll cut you.

We may or may not all be armed.
