FreindlyFireZoneMedia is undergoing a complete "media makeover," where everything from A to Z is being revamped, and in some cases, reinvented. Given that we are categorizing print, radio and television archives as far back as 2006, please bear with us as we institute these significant, but time-consuming, changes.

In the meantime, please contact FFZ Media with questions, comments, and naturally, your criticism. As an independent commentator, Chris Freind is available for unrestricted television and radio guest media appearances as well as speaking engagements --- including vigorous issue debates ---in Pennsylvania and nationwide.

We look forward to joining you in the "public square."

Do NOT Raise Debt Ceiling Again!

Do NOT Raise Debt Ceiling 
After last month’s boardwalk fire in Seaside Heights, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, self-proclaimed fiscal hawk, immediately allocated $15 million in taxpayer money to business owners.
Sorry, Guv, but that’s why God made insurance. Government had absolutely no reason to get involved. Yet it did.

Shame: The Way To Restore American Pride

Shame: The Way To Restore American Pride
The great fish moved silently through the water, and into immortality. Without question, Jaws was a classic, filled with memorable lines. But the one that best reflected the attitude of the times was Quint’s blunt speech to the business owners.
“(Killing the shark) will bring back the tourists.  That'll put all your businesses on a paying basis.  Now you gotta make up your minds.  Do you wanna stay alive and ante up, or you wanna play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter?”

Republicans Have Shutdown On Good Ideas

Republicans Have Shutdown Of Ideas
Shutting down the government may not be the dumbest thing the Republican Party has ever done.
But it’s definitely in the Top Five.
Honestly, it’s tough to figure out which is most idiotic: the GOP following through on its threat, their thinking that it will benefit them politically, or that its leaders have not learned from history.

Firestorm Reaction To CYO Riffs Proves Need For Unity

Firestorm Reaction To CYO Riffs Proves Need For Unity
The firestorm surrounding Freindly Fire’s recent column, which discussed the lack of unity in merged Catholic schools, was reminiscent of the famous “Hamburger Report” of the 1970’s, a scathing report on police corruption in Philadelphia. Despite serious allegations, including bribery, the headline that grabbed the most attention was cops getting free hamburgers.
That’s all the critics needed to distract attention from the real issues, which were relegated forever to obscurity.

Separate CYO Teams In Merged Schools Is Disastrous

Archbishop Chaput, Where Are You?
It was a picture perfect day for football.

No "Rights" For Illegals Until The Law Is Changed

Rights For Illegal Immigrants?  Fine - Change The Law
Since millions of Americans enjoy crystal meth, it only seems appropriate that the government start doling it out freely. After all, doing so would provide for users’ continued pleasure while empowering them to expect more entitlements --- the law be damned.
Sound crazy?  Can’t imagine Government, the creator and enforcer of laws, sanctioning illegal activities?

Post 9/11 Foreign Policy Has Been Disastrous

Post 9/11 Foreign Policy Has Been Disastrous
In the twelve years since the 9/11 attacks, thousands of Americans have made the ultimate sacrifice, and trillions have been spent fighting overseas battles. But the hard truth is that the United States has thus far lost the foreign “War on Terror.”

Bombing Syria Will Seriously Bomb

Bombing Syria Will Seriously Bomb
If the United States were a body part, it wouldn’t be a brain, but a nose.  The world’s biggest, always being stuck where it doesn’t belong.
Right now, it’s in Syria.  And if America rains down bombs there, its nose will be broken yet again.  How many times will we get punched before learning how to better pick our fights?   As the saying goes, “You can’t always pick your friends (apparently, we have none regarding an attack on Syria), but you can always pick your nose.”

Labor Day --- With No Labor?

Labor Day? Union Membership Is “Laboring"
Talk about freeloading.
The 9 of 10 Americans who aren’t part of organized labor still took full advantage of Labor Day, that hallowed holiday honoring unions, a.k.a. “the working class.”
And since those 90 percent aren’t considered “working people” (meaning they must not work) every day is clearly a holiday for them. So relaxing on Labor Day just seems like sticking it to the unions.

Stop The Stop And Frisk!

Stop The “Stop And Frisk”
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, with tensions finally calming down after the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman saga, another racial controversy erupted.
A federal judge recently ruled that New York City’s “Stop and Frisk” policy was unconstitutional and racially discriminatory, as a majority of those detained, questioned and frisked by police were black or Latino who, for the most part, weren’t doing anything illegal.
