‘Let me pass through your land. I will go only by the road; I will turn aside neither to the right nor to the left.’ ~ Deuteronomy 2:27  

 

Funny search engine terms used to find my blog:

  • chicken fried by john Anderson

  • malondialdehyde “heated meat”

  • sarah brosmer

  • obama scary

 

 

 

 

  • Robert Earl Keen, Jr. (Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 1980) made the list of Top Ten Law Songs with his outlaw ballad, ‘The Road Goes On Forever.’ The complete list can be found here. (And to prove that all is right with the universe, Johnny Cash made the list, too.)

 

 

 

  • The next time the president goes to war, Congress should be consulted and vote on whether it agrees, according to a bipartisan study group chaired by former secretaries of state James Baker III and Warren Christopher.’ [Or, they could simply read the dang Constitution:]

 

Article I, Section 8: ‘The Congress shall have power … to declare war …’

 

 

 

  • I providentially ran across a fantastic (and free) online music service which allows you to build your own playlists.  The amazing thing is that it will suggest songs and albums based upon one band or song you enter.  I highly recommend it

 

 

 

  • “With one out in the seventh, [Ozzie Osbourne] tells [his wife] Sharon he needs to use the bathroom,” Rios said. “And I’m like, ‘He’s not going anywhere.’ So maybe that was part of it — maybe he was thinking about going to the bathroom.”’

 

 

 

  • Questions over a birth certificate for Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama—the document that could prove his constitutional qualifications to assume the presidency—have been revived by a report from Israel Insider.’

 

 

 

Printing dollars over long periods of time may not immediately push prices up – yet in time it always does. Now we’re seeing catch-up for past inflating of the monetary supply. As bad as it is today with $4 a gallon gasoline, this is just the beginning. It’s a gross distraction to hound away at “drill, drill, drill” as a solution to the dollar crisis and high gasoline prices. It’s okay to let the market increase supplies and drill, but that issue is a gross distraction from the sins of deficits and Federal Reserve monetary shenanigans.’ ~ Ron Paul

 

 

 

  • In the Land of the Free Report: ‘The Electronic ID Bracelet, as it’s referred to as, would be worn by every traveler “until they disembark the flight at their destination.”  Yes, you read that correctly. Every airline passenger would be tracked by a government-funded GPS, containing personal, private and confidential information, and that it would shock the customer worse than an electronic dog collar if he/she got out of line?’

 

 

 

  • I knew there was something fishy about that news item reporting a “daring” rescue effort by the Colombian military of Colombian and U.S. hostages held by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), and, as it turns out, the whole thing was an elaborate put-up job. According to a report by the Swiss radio outlet Suisse Romande, instead of “infiltrating” and fooling the FARC high command into handing over the hostages to Colombian military personnel, the Colombians paid a hefty ransom.’

 

 

 

  • A homosexual man who has a blog on Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign website is suing two major Christian publishers for violating his constitutional rights and causing emotional pain, because the Bible versions they publish refer to homosexuality as a sin.’

 

 

 

  • The Reformers recognized transubstantiation for what it is—idolatry. Here is a story recounting what can happen as a logical extension of that belief.

 

For as we do not doubt that Christ’s body is limited by the general characteristics common to all human bodies, and is contained in heaven (where it was received once for all) until Christ return in judgment, so we deem it utterly unlawful to draw it back under these corruptible elements or to imagine it to be present everywhere. (John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion 4:17:12)

 

 

 

  • The US government and the government of Iraq are in agreement that we, the US government, we want to withdraw, we will withdraw. However, that decision will be conditions-based,” State Department spokesman Gonzalo Gallegos said.’ (Those silly Iraqis! What, do they think we came to give them Freedom them or something?)

 

How soft your fields so green

Can whisper tales of gore.

Of how we calmed the tides of war.

We are your Overlords!  ~ Led Zeppelin, Immigrant Song

  1. I think I’ll just have to start suing some people as well because those mean Bible-texts talk too much about people like me. I mean, who are they to imply my lying, cheating, stealing, murdering, slandering, and other impure thoughts are sins!?!?!?! Oh the nerve of those guys!
