Heidi Harris Show Podcast #110: New CCSD “School Justice Partnership”

The CCSD has now voted to implement a new system, the “School Justice Partnership” to keep kids out of trouble, which in reality does nothing to improve anyone’s behavior. Allowing offenses like destroying property or larceny to be handled with “intervention” and “support” leaves out the well-behaved kids and the taxpayers, who have a right to pay for schools that function correctly. If the focus is to prepare kids for life, they need to realize that poor behavior isn’t going to serve them well. A swat on the tush won’t do it.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #109: Steven Long, POW/hero who passed away, and thoughts on John McCain

I recently attended the Memorial service for a true hero, Major Steven Long, who had a lifetime of distinguished service in our Air Force, and was held captive in Southeast Asia for five years. It was a room full of amazing people, the likes of which this country will never see again. It was truly humbling.

And I have a few comments about the passing of John McCain….

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #108: If you’re Dying, take care of business

Most of us don’t know when we’ll die, but if you do know about your impending death, take care of business. It’s a kindness to those you leave behind.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #106: Finding a balance in your life

I juste read about yet another talk how host who died suddenly in his 60’s. This has happened to many people I know, (some of whom aren’t in radio), but it seems to happening with greater frequency. We all need to strike a balance in our lives, and too few people people today are doing that. There’s no point in “killing yourself” so you can retire, if you’re literally killing yourself.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #105: Transgenders demand favorable treatment from Hollywood

Recently, 45 groups, sympathetic to the LGBTQ community, signed a letter demanding to be included in Hollywood movies. They want favorable story lines written about trans people, as if it’s someone else’s job to make anyone feel “safe”.

If you don’t like the way your group or ethnicity is portrayed, take a hint from the many Christians who have created their own production companies, so they can make movies portraying Christians and Biblical values favorably, or at least objectively, and Biblical stories accurately. No one is entitled to anything.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #104: Who are you calling a LIBERAL?

Lately a few posters to my Facebook page have been calling me a liberal, which is laughable, considering that I haven’t waffled, wavered or backed down from my conservative values one inch. My refusal to go with the flow has cost me money and jobs, but I haven’t budged. I am accountable to God, not some Program Director, or the “evolving” GOP platform. Many so-called conservatives, including some in my industry, have gone soft on some major issues, mostly the social ones.

The definition of “conservative” these days seems to have changed. People no longer defend traditional marriage or get annoyed by things like legal prostitution or legal pot, which just a few years ago would have been a given. I actually know a few conservatives who are making MONEY selling legal pot! What makes them different from some Columbian Cartel member? So much for values.

So the next time I have the temerity to question Trump or any other member of the GOP for veering left, save your keystrokes. You’re the ones off track. I don’t drink Koolaid. And I don’t go with the flow. That’s why they’re called VALUES.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #102: Who Defines “Fake News”?

Recently there was a headline about the NRA admitting that the State of New York is costing them huge money because Governor Cuomo is putting pressure on insurance companies and banks who do business with the NRA.

When I posted that story on Facebook, many people rejected it out of hand as “fake news” simply because I posted the link from the New York Post (not exactly a lefty site, at least not politically).

Several other far more left leaning sites were also talking about it. That was pretty disturbing to me that people automatically assumed the story to be false just because of the source. But that just demonstrates how distrust of the media has reached all all time high.

We may distrust them, but they’re not always wrong. Checking all sides of issues is essential.
