David Haggith started writing about the economy after he predicted The Great Recession half a year before it hit and was puzzled as to why no economists or stocks analysts saw it coming. In the months after the crisis broke out, he started to write humorous editorials in a series titled “Downtime,“ which chided the U.S. government and bankers who should have seen the economic collapse coming but whose cronyism, greed and ineptitude caused them to run the world into a ditch. These articles were published in The Hudson Valley Business Journal, The Valley City Times-Record (North Dakota), and The Daily Herald in Tennessee. He is dedicated to regularly criticizing the daily news — not just the content but the uncritical, unthinking nature of almost all of the reporting. Haggith now writes his own blog, The Great Recession Blog, to break down the same news as an equal-opportunity critic toward both Republicans and Democrats / Conservatives and Liberals … since neither kind of politician has done anything worthwhile to help plot a better economic course. His articles are now regularly carried by several economic websites. He has also been the guest on many national and international radio programs. Read David’s columns.

As a pastor in 1993, Charlie Lyon attended social researcher George Barna’s seminar at which Barna observed that of the two and a half million students who would graduate that year, two thirds would not be able to read or write at a seventh grade level. The problem for the future, he predicted, was that a generation would grow up without the vocabulary to adequately articulate thought. As a school bus driver, Charlie Lyon would often warn the high schoolers that if they limited their vocabulary to the “f word” for all parts of speech they would soon be reduced to pointing, grunting and clubbing each other to get their ideas across. As a parent and grandparent he watched helplessly a coarsening of an entire culture being reduced to pointing, grunting and clubbing each other because we can no longer articulate the ideals of liberty. And so he writes in the hope that the pen is still mightier than the, well, club. Using the things he has gleaned as a follower of Jesus, obedient son, faithful husband, proud parent, pastor, teacher, carpenter, businessman, lover of liberty and student of history he wants to rekindle brushfires of freedom in the minds of men!
