GQ Magazine Lists The Bible As Not Worth Reading, But It's A Better Read Than GQ Any Day And Twice on Sunday 4/23/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

The editors of one of the most overrated magazines, GQ, published a list of 21 books they say aren’t worth reading and the Bible is on the list at number 12.  

The editors of the magazine said, “The Bible has some good parts, but overall it is certainly not the finest thing man has ever produced.” They went on to say that “It is repetitive, self-contradictory” and they went on to say it’s foolish.

Other classic books on the list that GQ feels isn’t worth reading include Lonesome Dove, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and The Lord of the Rings.  

Unlike GQ magazine, the Bible is the best book, in fact, the only book you need to read to make it through life. It has advice on relationships, finances, how to treat others, and even how to gain eternal life.

You will be far better off and have much more success in life if you read the Bible over GQ magazine any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Woke Liberal New Yorkers Get Triggered By Chick Fil A Sandwiches 4/19/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Imagine how liberal elite snobby you have to be to be a subscriber to the New Yorker magazine. No one is more out of touch with the rest of America than the readership of the New Yorker.

Recently, Chick fil A opened up a location in the Big Apple and this has completely trigged the woke liberals on the left.

It triggered them so much that the New Yorker published an article condemning its presence saying that it feels like “An infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism. Its headquarters, in Atlanta, are adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet. “

Now remember, we’re talking about a chicken restaurant, what’s so creepy about that? What? Their cows are scary looking? The author is afraid someone may say “God bless you” to them I guess.

The magazine also finds the words “to glorify God” in the company’s mission statement disturbing as well.

There is no better example of the alternative world of liberalism than this article. Most people could care less about the politics of Chick fil A. They just want a chicken sandwich. In fact, most people probably find their Christian standards as another reason to eat there. I know it do.

Much like a Chick fil a sandwich, it’s very tasty and juicy to read an article from the New Yorker, operated by people that are supposed to be tolerant and diverse complaining about a chicken restaurant owned by Christians. As the Chick fil a cows would say, “Eat Mor Chicken” and read less New Yorker. Ok, I added that last part.

Is Syria The Next Endless War? 4/17/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

We all know by now that Friday night President Trump gave the green light to the U.S. military to strike Syria, and hopefully that is all it will be. I hope they got the message Friday night that President Trump will not allow the chemical attacks to continue and they will stop it.

However, my fear is that this is only the beginning and I’m hoping and praying that this doesn’t become the next endless war the U.S. is involved in.

We are still in Iraq, Afghanistan, and I am hoping this doesn’t turn into a larger conflict. I personally do not want another decades plus war where so many good U.S. men and women lose their life in battle. I especially don’t want war with Russia because that would not be good for anyone.

If we gotta go back over there, please President Trump, make it quick. Get in, get out, and don’t drag it out like George W. Bush did with Iraq. Make it a swift victory.

God bless our troops, guide our President and God protect America.

The United States Of Unbelievers: 20 Percent Of Americans Have No Religious Identity According To New Poll 4/16/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

A recent Gallup poll shows us another reason why America is in decline, maybe the biggest reason why America is in decline, to be honest, and that is the decline of religion in America.

According to HotAir.com, in 1955, Gallup reported that only 2% of Americans identified as not having a religious identity.

In 2016, the number increased to 20% identifying as not having a religious identity.

With this becoming a bigger demographic of people, the nonreligious political voice will only become louder in the public square, pushing traditional religious values to the margins.

In many ways, this is already happening and the bigger this group grows, the more problems American society will face, because when the moral order that is based on religion breaks down, culture chaos is sure to follow.

Americans Are More Concerned About Their Wallets Than Privacy As Poll Shows Americans Aren't Willing To Pay for An Ad Free Facebook 4/13/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

According to a new poll that included 750 participants from Recode, people don’t trust Facebook with their data, but not enough to pay for the app in order to keep their data safe.

The poll reports that 77% of the participants would stick to the free ad version of Facebook if given the choice between a free account or a paid subscription model without ads. Twenty-three percent of the sample said they would pay to not have ads.

According to Recode, Facebook makes $9 per month per user when they target you with ads.

Among those that said they’d be willing to pay,  42% said they would be willing to spend between $1 and $5 for an ad free Facebook, while 25% said they’d pay between $6 and $10 for that service.

So it appears that Americans are concerned about their privacy, but they’re more concerned about their wallets.

Personally, I value my privacy over money, but I still wouldn’t pay for Facebook. I’d delete it before I paid for it.

A Fox News MAGA Facebook Alternative Would Be Big League 4/12/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday testified in front of a House committee and watching some of the coverage, it made wonder how long is it gonna be until someone creates a Fox News of social media?

Do you know how big that would be? If someone created a social network where you could give your opinion and not wonder if you’ve been shadowed banned or censored?

Where you could openly be Team MAGA?

Now there are some very small websites out there that are conservative, but let’s face it, not very many people use them.

I’m talking about a website that has big funding from a big name investors like the Mercer family, someone with deep pockets, that’s the only way something like this has a chance to make it.

Competition is good and Facebook needs some competition. If Facebook is the CNN version of social media, a Fox News version may not put Facebook out of business, but a site that does Facebook better than Facebook would definitely put a dent in the Zuckerberg company.

Of course, he would probably end up buying it in the end because that’s what always happens.

Trump's Impeachment Will Only Further Divide An Already Politically Divided Nation 4/11/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

They’re not gonna stop until they can impeach Trump on something. If the democrats win back the House and Senate, Trump’s presidency and agenda is all but over on election night.

There is no way he survives if the democrats gain majority power.

They’ll impeach him, then they’ll win back the White House in 2020, and will continue their far left agenda that will create high unemployment, less freedom, and more moral depravity.

If they impeach Trump over nothing, I’m concerned about how this will only to further divide an already politically divided nation.

This will only create more political chaos and arguments between politicians and neighbors across America.

Social Media As We Know It Is Over. Government Regulation Is Now A Matter Of Not If, But When 4/10/18

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

With the Facebook data scandal increasing and lawmakers planning to grill Mark Zuckerberg later this week, it is now a matter of not if, but when tech and social media will be regulated by the federal government.

A Senator according to Fox News are even warning that Facebook could be broken up if they don’t shape up.

It’s not just Facebook that is making billions off of our data, it’s all of them: Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and the list goes on.

I said in January that  maybe it’s time to bust the social media trust, and with the data scandal growing and Congress getting involved, it’s only a matter of time now until social media is regulated, and once that door opens, the government will only regulate it more and more.

Social media as we know it is over.

ESPN Wanted To Wake America Up Woke And The Ratings Are A Joke 4/6/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

ESPN wanted to wake America up woke with their new “Get Up!” morning show that stars Mike Greenberg, Michelle Liberal, and Jalen Rose, and the ratings for the much hyped and promoted show are a CNN level ratings disaster.

The premiere episode got only, on average, 283,000 viewers, which is less than reruns SportsCenter received in the same time slot last year.

Radio host Clay Travis stated that the low number may be the lowest debut for a new ESPN this century.

If the ratings continue to be bad, there is no way ESPN makes money on this show. Especially considering they’re paying the three hosts around $15 million a year.

ESPN damaged their brand forever when they went left and got political, and the premiere ratings for this show is just the latest example that audiences aren’t interested in watching a show that everyone knows is gonna include liberal politics.

Now, ESPN better be real careful though because if LeBron James has a web show that has three hosts that sit around and talk sports and politics, he may sue them for copyright infringement because no one before him has ever thought of that. Right Nick Saban?

"Fakebook's" User Data Scandal Is A Winning Issue For The Republicans To Run On In the Midterm Election 4/5/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

It appears that Facebook’s data problems continues to grow as now even the titans of Silicon Valley including Apple’s Tim Cook, are speaking out against the social media giant.  

Now it could simply be a business move, people criticize competition all the time to make their own company look better, but this is still new because before we’ve never seen Cook and other technology CEOs go after a company like they are going after Facebook.

And it goes well beyond the tech world.

On Twitter people have called for boycotts and for people to delete their accounts on Zuckerberg’s site, but with 2 billion users, a few people deleting their account isn’t gonna hurt its bottom line much, but if the Washington whispers are true that President Trump is looking at possible tech regulation, that could hurt The Facebook, among other companies.

The Republicans probably haven’t realized it yet, but Facebook’s data scandal has given them a huge election issue they can run on in the midterms and in 2020. It’s also a bipartisan issue. Online privacy of user data is becoming a bigger concern for Americans, and it’s an issue that most people support having more restrictions on how that data is used by tech companies.

This is a winning issue for the GOP. All they gotta do is make it a Republican issue before the democrats steal it away. Trump need to go out there and start calling Facebook Fakebook and fake media and they can win this issue, and maybe it’ll help power them to a midterm victory.

Either way, this is an issue that isn’t gonna go away anytime soon.

Following The Success Of Roseanne, ABC Should Launch A Full Primetime MAGA TV Lineup Of Family Shows. It Would Make Them The Number One TV Network 4/4/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

If you told me in 2018 that Roseanne would be the biggest show in America, I’d tell you that you must be CNN because you’re spreading fake news.

The Roseanne revival on ABC premiere episode received around 25 million viewers with the number including people watching on-demand. That’s an unbelievable number for a broadcast TV show in 2018. That just doesn’t happen a lot anymore.

Following the success of the sitcom that contains a pro-Trump protagonist, I want to offer ABC some advice on how they can build on the success they’ve had with Roseanne.

ABC, here is my advice. You need to go all-in on the MAGA programing. Seriously, if ABC went full speed ahead with programming that appealed to Middle America, conservative Trump country, they would own primetime television. It wouldn’t even be close!

What they should do is start by bringing back the T.G.I.F. block of programming that they aired in the 90s that included Family Matters, Full House, Step by Step, and Boy Meets World.

If they brought back a block of family shows that were clean and contained positive moral messages like the ones shown in the 90s, ABC would become the number one network in America because there is a longing for family entertainment because these isn’t much of it on TV anymore. Family viewing choices for their kids are limited as more basic cable shows are becoming more like HBO with adult language and sexual content.

Take my advice ABC. Do it! Make Primetime TV Great Again!

Roseanne's Big League Ratings Stuns Hollywood. Could More Pro-Trump MAGA TV Shows Be On The Way? 4/3/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

I’m gonna be honest right at the top. I never watched Roseanne in the 90s and I don’t plan to start now. I’ve just never been interested in that show, but I do understand the plot of it.

I am happy though that the show has turned Hollywood upside down and is causing “soul searching” according to Deadline Hollywood.

The ratings for the show that has a Donald Trump-supporting protagonist is just the latest example of the divide in America as the show had big ratings in the Midwest and the rest of red state America, with Hillary country including New York and L.A., not even topping the top 20 in ratings.   

Historically, in order to have a hit, you’re supposed to have big numbers in New York and L.A., but Middle America made it a hit anyways. It’s like a repeat of the 2016 election and Trump won again!

The only reason this is a shock to Hollywood is because they live in a liberal bubble. They probably couldn’t point to Mississippi on a map if they had to. The rest of us that live in real America and not fantasy land are not surprised by this. The majority of American families are middle class like the one on the show. If Hollywood would step out of their cocoon, they’d learn a lot.

If Hollywood producers are wise, they’ll bring more Trump supporting, middle class appealing shows to TV. They have no idea how big of a market middle class America is. The ratings on these shows would be big league like Roseanne.

Easter Monday Reminder: God Is In Control As The World Spins Out Of Control 4/2/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Happy Easter! I hope you had an enjoyable Easter weekend. I love Easter and the hope it brings. Easter is a day of victory, of good defeating evil, of light outshining darkness.

When I read the story of Easter, it reminds me as I read the daily headlines that we have hope because you know how the story ends if you know Christ. As the world becomes more chaotic, the return of Christ becomes closer.

Jesus died on the cross for everyone. His love and forgiveness is available to all. Gay or straight, white or black, Jew or Gentile, democrat or Republican, and yes, even trolls on Twitter. Christ died for all to be forgiven and saved.

Imagine how much better our daily lives would be if we lived everyday as though it was Easter, instead of letting the chaos of the world and politics bring us down. We all would be a lot happier if we kept our focus heaven and not on the things of the world.

The late Rev. Billy Graham once said that he has read the last page of the Bible and it’s all gonna turn out all right.

This week let’s all live like we truly believe that God is in control, as our world spins out of control.

America Considers Unfriending Facebook As New Poll Shows Trust In Facebook Dropping After Data Scandal 3/28/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

After the Cambridge Analytica scandal, it seems more Americans are ready to “unfriend” Facebook.

A new poll from Reuters, shows that only 41 percent of consumers trust Facebook to obey U.S. privacy laws. Other major online brands including Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, each have over 60 percent trust among the public.

The poll also showed that a majority, 63 percent wants “less targeted advertising” on websites and 46 percent wants more government regulation of companies that deal with private user data.

I’m glad to see people are finally realizing that social media and other online brands have too much power over their private user data because it’s an issue that should concern all of us.

If the trust in Facebook continues to decline, and it may very well continue as more people learn about how Facebook uses their data, many Americans may decide to “unfriend” Facebook, and if that happens, Mark Zuckerberg is gonna lose a lot of Bitcoins.

Holy Week Headlines: Stormy Daniels And Parkland Show Us The Need For A Savior 3/27/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Watching the news this weekend, there was only two stories: Stormy Daniels, and the March for Our Lives march in D.C. Believe it or not, these two stories have a lot in common, and it’s not just because the liberal media are covering these 24/7.

I’ve tried to avoid discussing Stormy Daniels because it’s such a ridiculous story all around, and if what she alleges did happen, they’re both in the wrong. She’s wrong for sleeping with a married man, and Trump is wrong for cheating on his wife.

Saturday, CNN, the most trust name in Stormy Daniels porn news, and the rest of the media, took time out of their Stormy Daniels coverage to cover the March for Our Lives rally.

And it hit me Monday morning that these two stories are related. Yes, two separate stories, and two separate topics, but the cause for why these stories exist is the same: and that is sin.

This is Holy Week, which makes it even more ironic I’m talking about a porn star, but these two stories are the result of sin. Stormy and Trump, if they did it, they’re guilty of sin and the shooter at Parkland that took the lives of the students also broke a serious commandment: thou shalt not kill.

We live in a fallen, sinful, violent, hateful, Godless world, and the problems are increasing as man decides to move further away from religious principles.

With these and other tragic stories in the news, Holy Week is a reminder that we all are in need of a Savior that can save us from this evil world.

New Survey Shows TV Audiences Are Growing Increasingly Tired Of Politicized Sports And Entertainment Programming 3/26/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

A new survey from McLaughlin & Associates and the Media Research Center shows that TV audiences are growing tired of liberal politics being injected into sports and entertainment programming.

According to the survey of 1,000 likely voters, 75 percent agree with the statement:

"When I watch live sports or entertainment shows on television I am trying to get away from politics and do not want to be bombarded with partisan political messages."

44 percent said they are less likely to watch live sports and entertainment shows because they have become too political.

The top reason for not watching this year’s Oscars was that they were “tired of those shows being full of political statements.”  

From a business perspective it would make sense to ease up on the politics so you don’t alienate the audience, but they don’t about you watching. They’ve got their core liberal audience they’re appealing to and they don’t care if you watch or not. In fact, they’re expanding their political programming.

ESPN announced this week they’re planning a new “woke” morning show that will discuss sports and politics.  

TV can double down if they want to on liberal politics, but they’re gonna be broadcasting to a smaller and smaller audience, and when they have to lay people off due to bad ratings, I hope that the woke reporters at ESPN will be cool with taking one for the liberal team when they lose their job.

Hallelujahwood: Inside Hollywood's Growing Christian Movie Revival 3/23/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Hollywood is having a Christian movie revival.

TheWeek.com reports that Christian themed movies are on the rise and making blockbuster size money.

I Can Only Imagine, a film that tells the story of the popular Christian song, made more than $17 million last weekend, good enough for third place at the box office.

In 2014, the movie Noah made more than $362 million dollars and Exodus: Gods and Kings starring Batman, I mean Christian Bale, made more than $268 million. Other recent films including Son of God and The Shack, they have made more than $100 million combined.

And there are more movies on the way. This weekend a movie about Paul opens up and Mel Gibson is planning a sequel to The Passion of the Christ.

As dark as the world is, it’s no wonder that movie goers would flock to see movies that are positive, encouraging, and uplifting.

For too long Hollywood ignored Christians as it continued to pump out garbage, but now it’s starting to see that the religious are an important demographic that are willing to support movies that share their values.

The darker the world becomes, the more impact religious based movies can have and stand out from the rest as these films offer an alternative to the immoral messages of typical Hollywood movies.

The Christian movie revival is just getting started.

Millennials Aren't Saving For Retirement And It's Gonna Leave Them Financially Broke. Not Woke 3/22/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Apparently, a lot of millennials have been drinking too much of the Bernie Sanders Kool Aid.

Salon reports that many millennials are not saving for retirement because they believe capitalism won’t exist by their retirement and that we are destined for a socialist utopian future.

Holly Wood, 32, a political organizer interviewed, said that she didn’t believe “the world can sustain capitalism for another decade, it’s socialism or bust.”

Jon Good, 34, said that Capitalism may still exist in 2050, but he didn’t believe anyone will be happy about it, and his idea economic model is one where all basic necessities are abundant and free.

If you read the entire article, it’s depressing. These millennials have a bleak, dark, depressing view of the future, and it’s all because of liberalism. Climate change, war, and the article doesn’t mention it, but Donald Trump, are all gonna send us back to basically living in caves with no money.

Is it possible that in the future something really bad could happen that creates another great depression? Yes, but even if that does happen isn’t it your responsibility to care for yourself? Why should that be the government’s problem if you did not save money or spend wisely?

The socialist future millennials want already exist. It’s all over the world in third world countries.

If millennials continue to have this belief about their future, when they are at retirement age, they’re not gonna be socialist woke, they’re gonna be financially broke.

Hollywood Accidentally Endorses Trump for Re-Election 3/21/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Who would’ve thought that Trump’s biggest endorsers for his re-election would be Hollywood? Well, not directly, but if Jim Carey continues to produce hate art and John Oliver keeps telling his audience to do things like bash Mike Pence’s daughter’s kids book on Amazon, they’re gonna be very triggered on election night 2020, because they’re irrational hatred of Trump is doing nothing but helping him win again.

The Hollywood left is making Trump seem like the voice of reason, even with all his Tweets and the political chaos. To the normal, common sense American, the celebrities seem to be hateful, angry, bitter, and just absurd.

These are the people that tell us to be tolerant, diverse, don’t attack women, don’t fat shame, be open minded about religion, let’s all come together, hold hands on a mountain and buy the world a Coke, but with their constant attacks on Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and now, Mike Pence’s daughter, they’re proving to not practice what they preach, but are exposing the ugliness of the Hollywood left.

And I hope they continue to expose themselves.

It only helps Trump.

“Keep The Hollywood Left Triggered” would be a great slogan for Trump in 2020.

Survey Shows Millennials Are Burned Out On Social Media, But Will It Last? 3/20/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Lately I’ve been so tired of Facebook that I’ve wanted to delete my account and be done with it, and it looks like I’m not the only one.

The New York Post reported on a poll that found more than half of users between 18-34 are “seeking relief from social media” and that 34 percent have deleted social media accounts all together, with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram being the most popular apps to quit.

Forty-one percent said they waste too much time on social media and 35 percent agreed that people their age are too distracted by their online lives.

It’s good to see that millennials are starting to realize the problems that social media is causing in their lives, but the majority are still no doubt spending a large amount of time on these sites.

The real test is how many of these polled will stay off the sites permanently, and not go back to open up another Facebook account because they’re afraid they’re missing out, are addicted and need the next fix, in this case, their next like or retweet.
