In God They Don't Trust: New Poll Shows Candidates Religion Becoming Less Of A Factor For Voters 9/24/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

In another example that Christian America is in decline, a new poll from the Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research reports that only 25 percent of Americans say it’s very or extremely important a candidate for office has strong religious beliefs.

Among white evangelical Protestants, 51 percent consider it very or extremely important a candidate has strong religious beliefs.

Fox News reports the poll found that 57 percent of Americans still want religion to have an influence on government policy including poverty.

While still a slight majority of evangelicals consider the religion of candidates extremely important, there’s no doubt that among Americans in general, the influence of religion in their daily lives and politics is on the decline.

And among younger Americans the trend is away from strong religious values which will make religion have a less prominent spot on the public square.

It's Unhealthy How Much Teens Care About Social Media Fame 9/21/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

A new study from Common Sense Media that contained a sample of over thousand U.S. 13-17 year olds concerning their social media habits shows that almost 90 percent of teens now have a smartphone and 70 percent use social media multiple times per day.

Other results showed that 21 percent said social media makes them feel more popular, 20 percent said it makes them feel more confident, and 18 percent said it makes them feel better about themselves according to Re-Code. The majority doesn’t believe social media makes a difference one way or the other about how they feel.

I actually believe those percentages are higher and that there are more teens than reported that are obsessed with gaining social media fame and are using the platforms to try and to gain popularity and all of this is not good for our society or for the kids.

It’s unhealthy behavior to compare yourselves to others online and all this social media use will only lead to more anxiety or depression problems in young adults until they realize that it doesn’t matter how many followers you have online because that doesn’t make you happy.

Hollywood Producers Should Get Their Minds Out Of The Gutter And Produce Family-Friendly TV Shows 9/20/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

A new report from the Parents Television Council shows that 81 percent of prime-time broadcast TV family comedy shows contain sexually explicit dialogue spoken by adult characters in front of children.

Some of the shows reviewed included “Family Guy,” “Modern Family,” “Roseanne,” “Young Sheldon,” “Mom” and “American Housewife.”

The now canceled Fox show “The Mick” contained over-the-top sexual dialogue spoken by adult characters to the kids on the show. I watched the pilot episode of it and that’s all I needed to know about what the show would be all about so didn’t watch any more of the trash.

In the 90s you had real family shows that contained little, if any, sexual content. ABC had an entire block of Friday night programming aimed at families.

There really isn’t any “family-friendly” shows on TV anymore as this report shows. Hollywood TV producers are doing a disservice to American families by not offering clean, family content to audiences. There is a big hunger by TV consumers for family shows free of sexualized content and politics.

Hollywood is sitting on a potential goldmine if they’d just get their minds out of the gutter and produce family programming.

If The Republicans Lose In November It Won't Be Because Of What Trump Said In July 7/18/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

I know that Trump is saying he misspoke about Russia during the press conference and he’s backtracking on what he said, but in the midterm elections, none of it is gonna matter.

No one will care come November. This is just this week’s media attempt to try and oust Trump from office with over-the-top outrage.

Now I’m not saying I agree with what Trump said or that he should’ve said it, I’m just saying that come election night if the Republicans lose it won’t be because of this.

Every week the media has thought Trump has done something that will bring on the end of the world.

I went outside today, and the sky hasn’t fallen yet, and it looks to be pretty secure up there.

A month from now this will be a footnote just like Stormy Daniels, and the truth is most Trump voters probably don’t care what he said or didn’t say because the media has cried wolf so much on Trump that they are not gonna believe their analysis is credible on this issue and they’re just gonna tune it out.

The Bad News Continues For The Democrats As Poll Finds Majority Of Americans Feel They're Better Off Financially Under Trump Than Obama 7/12/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

More bad news for the Democrats.

The latest Emerson College poll found 42% of those surveyed feel they are better off under Trump financially than they were under Obama.

This is bad news for the Democrats because if people are feeling good about how they’re doing, why would they take the chance of making that feeling go away by voting Democrat in November?

Nothing is going right for the Democrats and I predict the Republicans keep the House and Senate in the midterms.

People are not gonna wanna risk a good economy to take a chance on voting for the Democrats.

So Much Winning! Christian Based Chick-fil-A Is America's Favorite Fast Food Restaurant Study Finds 7/10/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

It looks like the protests and boycotts have done zero to Christian based Chick-fil-A’s bottom line. If you’d just go to a local Chick-fil-A and see the long line through the drive thru at lunch you know already this is the case.

According to an American Customer Satisfaction survey that included almost 23,000 participants, Chick-fil-A beat Panera, Papa John’s, Pizza Hut and Subway to be America’s favorite U.S. fast food restaurant for the second year in a row.

So as with Trump, it seems the boycotts, angry Tweets and protest signs against the values of Chick-fil-A has done nothing but help them keep on winning big league. Plus, let’s be honest, forget their religious values, bottom line, they’ve got some really good food.

A Constitutional Conservative Should Be The Only Choice For President Trump's Supreme Court Pick 7/9/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Today president Trump will announce his choice for the next Supreme Court justice and I am hoping that at the end of the day we will be excited that he has nominated a strong, constitutional conservative and Christian that will serve on the court.

Amy Coney Barrett seems to be the most conservative of the top 3 picks and is my favorite, but I don’t really care who wins the seat as long as they will be faithful to the constitution and will protect our freedoms including our religious liberty.

In these troubling times, it’s important Trump nominates a strong constitutional conservative and not someone that will be unreliable like John Roberts and Anthony Kennedy. Half the time you never knew what to expect from Kennedy and that’s true for Roberts as well.

A constitutional conservative should be the only choice for President Trump. We don’t need a Harriet Miers situation heading into the midterms.

That would be a disaster.

My Final Commentary From Mississippi. What's Next? 7/2/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

The day is finally here. My final commentary from Mississippi. For the past 3 years I’ve been working on my Ph.D. here in Mississippi, but I am now moving as I am all but done with it. I’ll be moving back home to Georgia.

Now, don’t worry, I’ll still be here behind the microphone offering commentary, but I’ll just be doing it from a new location. I’ll be off the next couple of days and some other days in July as I move. I appreciate each and every one of you that have listened over the past 5 years I’ve done this show and I hope you’ll continue to listen.

Bipartisanship? Republicans And Democrats Think Social Media Censors Political Speech 7/2/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

It seems that it’s not just Trumpers and conservatives that believe social media may be censoring political content.

A new poll from the Pew Research Center reports that more than half of Republicans believe it’s “very likely” social media including Facebook and Twitter censor political opinions they find “objectionable.” Even 20% of Democrats believe this too and 42% of Dems said it’s “somewhat likely.”

Overall, 64% of adults say that the big tech companies support liberal views over conservative ones.

If you’re the tech companies, this is really bad PR for you, and if you’re liberal, the question is if you feel that political content is being censored, will you stand for the free speech of those you don’t agree with?

I don’t agree with liberals on a lot of things, but I believe they have the right to say it so I can laugh.

Trump The Businessman's True Legacy May Not Be Saving The Economy But Saving The Supreme Court 6/29/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

The entire time Trump has been a politician everyone assumed his legacy as President would be the economy if he turned it around, but Trump’s lasting legacy is quickly becoming the Supreme Court even more than the economy.

Trump may go down in history as the President that saved the Supreme Court more than the President that saved the economy, although, what he’s done on with the economy is nothing to sneeze at.

If Trump can nominate a couple more strong, conservatives to the Supreme Court, he will have a legacy that maybe rivals Ronald Reagan or even is better.

It’s crucial that Trump nominates trustworthy conservatives that have a strong conservative track record that will not go moderate once they’re on the Supreme Court and become a disappointment. For example, John Roberts.

Trump's MAGA Agenda Continues To Win Big League Everywhere You Look! 6/28/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Donald Trump is dominating more than the Golden State Warriors. This guy just cannot lose!

The economy continues to grow.

Unemployment rate is crazy low.

His approval numbers are increasing.

Democrats have actually lost points in recent polls after the border battle.

The Supreme Court gave him a big victory on his already constitutional travel ban.

It’s amazing. I have never seen a president win as much as Trump.

Granted I’m only 32, but I’ve never seen a president accomplish more of his agenda so fast than Trump has. With all the odds and media against him, what he’s been able to pull off is historic and amazing.

And the winning will continue in the midterm elections.

The only thing that can stop or slow down the MAGA agenda is Trump and if he loses Republican support because the Democrats are out of political answers to stop him.

The End of The Jerry Springer Show Is Only The Beginning Of The TV Trash Genre 6/25/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

The innovator of trash TV, Jerry Springer, has finally had his show cancelled after more than 4,000 episodes of garbage.

NBC has announced they have stopped production of “The Jerry Springer Show” that has aired since 1991 but reruns will live on for at least the next 2-3 years on The CW.

The Springer show has no redeeming qualities and has never provided anything positive to the American pop culture, but instead it paved the way for the trash that airs on TV now and in some ways is the forerunner to reality TV because his show provided Hollywood evidence that a large amount of the public would be willing to watch reality TV shows that show people yelling, screaming and committing all kinds of indecent acts all for a chance at 15 minutes of television fame.

The ending of the Springer show isn’t the end of the trash TV genre, it’s only the conclusion of one chapter of it, with many more chapters to come that will be an even bigger pile of trash than his show.

New Potential EU Copyright Laws Could Curb Free Speech Across The Web Including The Censoring Of Social Media Memes And Other User Created Content 6/22/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

The EU just had an initial vote to change copyright law for the internet in EU countries that will have far reaching effects outside of the European Union and could determine what you are able to see here in America.

The BBC reports that the new copyright laws passed by a group of MEPs, that’s Members of European Parliament, contains two articles that you need to know and worry about.

Article 11, that some are calling a “link tax,” would require online platforms to pay publishers a fee if they link to their news content. For example, if Google News posts a clip of a video or a snippet of a news story from ABC, Google would have to pay ABC a fee to post that content.

Article 13 is even worse. Under it all user generated content that includes text, photos, audio and video would be checked for copyrighted material and filter if the user is found to have uploaded copyrighted content. So if you create a Crying Jordan or Crying Rachel Maddow meme that includes a photo from ESPN or MSNBC, Twitter will have to take your meme down.  

Critics complain that web filters will not be able to tell the difference in copyright violations or if something is simply a parody or satire.

This could have a chilling effect on free speech not only in Europe but also here in America because tech companies may decide it’s easier to just implement these EU rules in all countries including the U.S.

If this passes the wider European Parliament vote in July, someone should make a “Crying Internet User” meme because the web as we know it could be over.

Will The Immigration Issue Make The Evangelical Religious Right Dump Trump? 6/21/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

If I tried to explain all the fake news, lies, spin and the actual facts on the current immigration issue, this would probably be a four hour podcast. So I’m not even gonna attempt to explain and analyze all the misreporting, but you can probably guess the media outlets that are spinning and lying.

I do want to discuss an article on TheHill.com that discusses the division between Trump and the Christian right over the family separation issue because it’s important. If Trump loses evangelicals, that’s a big league problem for Republicans in November and Trump in 2020.

Some of his biggest Christian support including the Rev. Franklin Graham and Ralph Reed have offered criticism of the POTUS on the issue. While there are a lot of evangelicals not in favor of Trump’s hardline stance on the issue, I don’t believe he should panic yet and worry that they’re gonna abandon him.

They’re upset yes, but the only way Trump will lose his conservative Christian base is if he doesn’t fix the problem, it grows, and he starts going against major campaign promises and the MAGA agenda. If he does that, then he’s politically done.

Trump has done a lot for the evangelical community including defending life and getting a pro-life judge on the Supreme Court, so I don’t believe they’re ready to dump him yet because they understand that even though they disagree on this issue, they’re still better off with Trump than with almost anyone else in the White House.

Instead Of The Predictable Hollywood Trump Bashing, Actor Chris Pratt Shared Something Unpredictable At The MTV Awards: The Gospel 6/20/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

The star of the upcoming JurassicWorld movie Chris Pratt shared something that might’ve never been spoken on MTV at the MTV Movie and TV Awards Sunday night, and that is the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pratt is no theologian, and some parts were vulgar bathroom humor, but overlooking that, he told the audience of mostly millennials and those watching at home that they each have a soul and to be careful with it.

That God loves them; He is real and wants the best for them.

He also told them to learn to pray, to stay humble and that we’re all imperfect, that we all were designed by a powerful force.

He also said to not take the freedom we have for granted and to remember that our freedom we have was paid for by someone else’s blood.

What a nice change from the usual and predictable Trump bashing that usually occurs at these events now.

While Pratt is no Billy Graham, he obviously has a practicing faith and just the fact he would say those things publicly in Hollywood is more gospel and morality than we’ve heard in probably years from Hollywood.

Imagine the impact if more of Hollywood were believers and shared their faith on and off the screen. It could cause a dramatic culture change, and boy do we need a dramatic culture change.

The Rolling Stones Were Wrong. You CAN Get Satisfaction! Americans' Satisfaction With Direction Of U.S. Rises According To New Poll 6/19/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Turns out Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones were wrong. You CAN get satisfaction. Well, at least in a new Gallup poll on the direction of the country.

The poll reports that included more than 1500 U.S. adults, the number of Americans satisfied with the direction of the U.S. is on the rise, reaching a 12 year high in June with 38 percent feeling satisfied. That’s up from 29 percent in April.

The satisfaction increase is up among Republicans and the all-important independents. In fact, all categories saw improvements in satisfaction except among Democrats.    

Gallup states a growing economy and decrease unemployment are the reasons for the rise in satisfaction and Trump is just getting started.

Imagine six months from now how great the economy will be if Trump continues improving the economy. Mick Jagger will have to write a new song called “I Can Only Get Satisfaction.”

NFL Continues To Fumble The Ball As National Anthem Controversy Continues With Only 42 Percent Viewing The League Favorably In New Poll 6/18/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

A new Fox News poll shows the NFL continues to fumble the ball as the national anthem controversy continues.

The poll reports only 42 percent have a favorable view of the league. That’s down from 46 percent in 2017 and 64 percent in 2013.

The NFL’s new national anthem policy has a 61 percent approval rating. Only 33 percent disagree with the new policy that requires players on the field to stand for the national anthem.

Fifty-four percent of Democrats disapprove of the new policy, and only 10 percent of Republicans disapprove.

Fifty-six percent of black voters disapprove, and 28 percent of white voters disapprove of the new policy.

However, the number that really matters in this poll is that 64 percent of self-identified football fans still have a favorable view of the league and that’s really all the matters because as long as they have their base, nothing seriously is gonna change on this issue. Unless fans stop attending games and buying merchandise, this anthem controversy is gonna continue, even with a new policy.

By the way, I caught some Canadian Football on ESPN 2 Friday night, and all the players stood for the Canadian anthem.
