With Valentine’s Day approaching, it’s a good time to ask the question: Is romance dead? The recent controversy over federally-mandated “free” contraception, deemed “essential preventative care” by the Obama regime, raises a more subtle question. Is the notion of “courtship,” now as quaint as the parasol, replaced by hookup, and if so, who benefits? The late 1960‘s saw the rise of so-called women’s movement, but has it really benefitted women? Are we better off now that “liberation” means that we’re supposed to not only pick up the check, but also hit the sheets with as many men as possible, get rid of any inconvenient tissue mass byproducts of our sexual conquests, and move on to the next one? Of course not, and while it might seem like our culture’s sexual candy store might be a dream come true for men, as they mature, aren’t they also looking for something deeper and more meaningful?
Our special guest, nationally-syndicated columnist and author of the best-selling book, It Takes a Parent, Betsy Hart, will join us to talk about looking for love in all the right places. Her new book “From The Hart: A Collection of Favorite Columns on Love, Loss, Marriage (and Other Extreme Sports)” is a refreshingly honest, intelligent, and sometimes politically incorrect, exploration of modern relationships. Betsy will explain the real reason that women seem to have such a tough time finding Mr. Right, often ignoring many good guys in the process. She’s also agreed to take your questions about love and romance. I’ll ask her about a recent CPAC attendee’s idea of the perfect conservative date.
The Obama administration has decided that the issue of federal government coercion, laid bare by their insistence that birth control, including abortifacients, are a “right,” is behind them, but not so fast, my dictatorial friends. Nothing is over until we say it is.
Join us Sunday for the rest of the story.
