Do you care about the poor…really?
By Mr. David Zanotti

It's popular in America to care about the poor. All the stars care about the poor. All the academic elites care about the poor. All the mainstream media celebrities care about the poor. It's cool to care about the poor. But what if a lot of that care, translated into public policy and even charitable action, actually is harming the poor and increasing poverty?

This conversation can set a lot of captives free -- well intentioned people who are trapped into a mindset that is simply missing the hard facts. Maybe there are better ideas on how to deal with poverty. Maybe we can all learn how to do this better. 

Join us this week on The Public Square® for a discussion with Dr. Wayne Grudem, co-author of a new book, The Poverty of Nations. This broadcast is one the whole family should hear. Guaranteed to challenge the status quo.

What if… on Easter morning
By Mr. David Zanotti

What if you just saw your best friend die and watched his burial. It happened on Friday. This is Sunday morning. The birds awaken you on a beautiful spring morning. As your eyes open and the voice inside your head starts out of the morning grog you remember where you are and the shroud of sadness closes in your vision. You roll over and grab your cell phone to check the time. How will you get through this day of sorrow?

Suddenly your cell phone goes off in your hand. A text message appears, all in caps... HE IS ALIVE. WE HAVE SEEN HIM!!!

Can you imagine...

What would your next move be?

Thank You Augusta National
By Mr. David Zanotti

They did it again. The members of Augusta National took the risk in the modern world of bad behavior and digital disrespect. They opened the gates of one of the world's most beautiful parks and let thousands of people watch a golf tournament. They extended invitations to scores of international golf associations from across the globe. They hosted qualified players of nearly every race, creed, color and age, including a host of kids. 

It amazes me every year that these "traditionalists" at Augusta National take the risk to host a massive event such as this with the whole world watching. They do it based on the core beliefs of their founder Bobby Jones. He was a God-fearing amateur athlete, family man and legendary champion. He quit golf to go to work full-time, after winning four major championships in a single year -- as an amateur.

This week on The Public Square® we go inside the ropes of the PGA Tour with Paul Tesori, caddy for US Open Champion Webb Simpson. The broadcast is already touching lives. We hope you will tune in and share the program with a friend.

And to the champion, Bubba Watson -- how can we not love this guy? Below is a photo of the 2014 Masters Champion with his wife, pastor and friends celebrating their Sunday victory at the Waffle House. Exactly right...

Please Go See This Movie
By Mr. David Zanotti

Maybe you were guessing the movie pick would be "Noah" or "God Isn't Dead". Not this time. Might I suggest a film that every American from the Junior High age up should see? The pic is the latest "Captain America" film. Why spend the dough to see the picture? Because it is a modern parable about the grave dangers of a culture that forgets its true history and first principles. It is also a prophetic analysis of what is coming to a world where data mining combines with political corruption to annihilate Liberty. Spoiler alert: Captain America gets it right and saves the day. The way he does so is well worth considering. If you don't like the theater, please see this film via On Demand, or when it becomes available on iTunes, Amazon, etc. This is an important statement to American culture. A warning of the world that is coming unless somebody wakes up and remembers.

Obamacare: The Laughter Continues
By Mr. David Zanotti

The very same day the President declared the debate on Obamacare was over, America's top comics were just getting warmed up. It is easy to understand why the President wants people to shut up about his signature law. After all, who would want to debate a 2500+page law they signed but never read? Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon lampooned the White House victory speech on Obamacare with the following:

“The White House says it has surpassed its goal for people enrolled in Obamacare. It’s amazing what you can achieve when you make something mandatory and fine people if they don’t do it and then keep extending the deadline for months,” Fallon quipped. “It’s like a Cinderella story. It’s just a beautiful thing. You make everyone do it.”

“If you still haven’t enrolled, you might have to pay a penalty called the ‘Individual Shared Responsibility Payment,’ which is 1 percent of your salary,” he continued. “Then Americans said, ‘hey, good thing I don’t have a job."
