[Jesus] said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.” ~ Luke 22:36

More funny search engine terms:

  • money in lds  (Frankly, Utah just plain smells like money, huh?)

  • patrick s susan k sister  (Wha?)

  • how to hold a pistol  (I’ll be glad to help you out here.)

  • do people drink pea  (If that’s a spelling mistake…yuck!)

William Wallace is one of my heroes, so it obvioiusly follows that Braveheart is one of my favourite movies.  Adding to that that Newhart is one of my all-time favourite television shows and you’ve got the making of a fantastic–and quite funny parody!

 

 

 

  • Despite attempts in training and technological sophistication, large-scale civilian death is both a direct and indirect result of United States aggression in Iraq. Even the most conservative estimates of Iraqi civilian deaths number over 100,000. Currently over 100 civilians die every day in Baghdad alone.’ ~ Iraq Veterans Against the War

  • The occupation of Iraq began five years ago today, but few realize that the march to war began ten years ago under Bill Clinton, when regime change became official U.S. policy. In 1998, I took to the House floor in protest of the Iraqi Liberation Act to warn that, ‘I see this legislation as essentially being a declaration of virtual war. It is giving the President tremendous powers to pursue war efforts against a sovereign Nation.’ My warnings were largely dismissed at the time, but five years later, we were bombing Iraq.’ ~ Ron Paul 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Here’s something the Findley’s might find interesting from ESPN.com: ‘When hungry and thirsty in San Antonio, just head down to the RiverWalk, the epicenter of fun in America’s best Final Four city. Nobody else can beat the combination of weather, central location and overall ambience. The Mexican food is superb, the bars are cool, the area is booming. If you cannot have a good time here, The Minutes cannot help you.’
