Oh, they tell me that He smiles on His children there

And His smile drives their sorrows away

And they tell me that no tears ever come again

In that lovely land of uncloudy day

~ Willie Nelson, Uncloudy Day

  • We’re angry when gas prices rise, yet we’re angry when housing prices fall. So, what exactly is a just price?







  • ‘Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s visit to the U.S. is partof a concerted effort, by the Israeli government and its American lobbyists, to convince U.S. lawmakers – and, most of all, President George W. Bush – that the time to attack Iran is now.’

  • I urge you to contact our local CBS affiliate and urge them to drop Swingtown from their line-up. Here is what aired the other night over the public airwaves:


The opening scene see a stewardess go home with a pilot for 3-way sex with the pilot’s wife.

· Teenagers smoke marijuana as they drive away from school

· Two young boys get caught looking at pornographic magazines by one of the boy’s father. His response was, “Don’t let your mother catch you with this” and hands the magazine back to the boy.

· At a party in a neighbor’s home, one woman continues to ask the host and another guest for “coke”.

· The host offers Quaaludes to her guest to “loosen her up” for group sex.

· Several party guests are shown smoking marijuana.

· One scene shows an orgy going on in the basement.

· Two married couples have sex together.







  • Marge Simpson on ‘Sex and the City’: ‘That’s the show about four women acting like gay guys.’ (Thanks to Eternity Matters.)




  • I was very concerned for a time that there would be only one warmonger running for President. Thankfully, Obama has vowed to spill just as much blood as McCain: ‘I will do everything in my power to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Everything in my power. Everything.’  Be assured of one thing: despite having only one letter’s variance in their names, Iran is NOT Iraq. If–when–we strike them, it will be bloody and protracted. The ‘cakewalk’ we were promised in Iraq pales in comparison to a country of 75 million souls (more than double that of Iraq). It might well bankrupt us in young lives and treasure. And there will be a draft to fill the ranks. Those of you reading this younger than 25–or with sons in that range–are you ready to die for your government?


  • The CIA had long considered Marilyn Monroe a threat to national security from the time she had married Arthur Miller, because they thought of him as a leftist. Then the FBI started listening in on her phone calls and tracking her – even to Mexico, where Bobby Kennedy had a fling with her. A private detective took an audio tape of Bobby Kennedy and Marilyn in an “affair”. The FBI was tracking Kennedy, their boss, all over the place and listening in on his conversations, possibly because Hoover wanted something on Kennedy – and he certainly got it, because as she was dying, they were listening in.’ (Thanks to Lew Rockwell.)

  1. Swingtown caught me by surprise as well. Although I didn’t watch it, I found the previews a bit disturbing the other night. And to think it is on CBS and not some channel like Spike or something weird. If it HAD to be on a major network, I would have assumed Fox…

  2. I just read what I wrote and it sounds more like I condone the show, just not the network. Let me make it clear I don’t condone either! I just thought if a network was going to go off the deep end, it would be Fox.

  3. I enjoyed the “just price” article. I almost 100% agree with the author. The parts where I disagree are more examples of me knowing of exceptions to his descriptions with an understanding of the market structures he does not directly mention because they are a bit unusual. It was enjoyable and pretty close to being along the lines of my thought.

  4. Our cd is scheduled to be released next month. 😉

    And I’m disgusted with the idea behind Swingtown and was also surprised that it is on CBS!
