Earthquakes that get lots of press & so lots of aid prompt some to ask if it's God's judgment on a nation—as though God considers national boundaries the defining factor in whom he judges and as though the US, where such discussion occurs, is a righteous & good nation, with whom God is quite pleased, while countries like Haiti and Chile are bad ones & God is angry with them - anger being presumably the cause of judgment. Music: by Beth Quist (Q Song) on the Magnatune label.

The Tea Party is just asking for it. When does the politics of anger become the politics of hating everyone else? Asher compares the Tea Party movement to identity groups and blasts their supposed Christian base. Music by Thursday Group (Like White on Rice) on the Magnatune label. Opinions: solely those of Asher Black. New call-center style headset. #ashercast #anarcast
