Is Milwaukee Still Famous?

‘[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

 

  • As time passes–and more evidence is unearthed–the Lone Gunman theory, which states that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone (if at all) unravels at an increasing pace.  I have been a student of the Kennedy assassination since my high school days and I never bought the Warren Commission’s ludicrous scenario.  I don’t presume to know exactly what did happen in Dallas in 1963 nor who was involved; I just knew the official story was so much malarkey.  Now we discover that Gerald Ford was an FBI mole during the ‘official’ investigation and may have (probably did?) manipulate the Commission to get the desired result. 

 

  • I am a bit surprised at the outrage many ‘conservatives’ are displaying regarding the report that authorities in Connecticut (the second c is silent!) are violating the Second Amendment rights of their citizens by confiscating their firearms because they feel they might pose a threat to themselves or other at some point in the future. There is no evidence that they are planning violent crimes—only that the authorities feel they may do so at some unknown time in the future! Those voicing opposition (rightly, I may add) to these unconstitutional acts are the very same folks who have vociferously—and viciously—defended the preemptive use of force against Iraq and urge the same course against Iran based on what those countries’ leaders might—might—do in the future. The hypocrisy is so thick you could cut it with a weapon that is not currently subject to being confiscated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The aggressor is not necessarily the one who fires the first shot but often the one who causes the first shot to be fired.’

 

 

 

I don’t dispute Joel Osteen’s sincerity–I feel that he actually believes the Prosperity Gospel® he promulgates and truly wants to help others find happiness.  However, comments he made in a recent interview were very illustrative of why his message is erroneous–if not perfidious.  Here is the original quote given by Osteen when asked about the ‘value of his product’:

Very rarely will you find a company that produces a widget where everyone is mentally and spiritually into producing a better widget,” Osteen says. “There’s a purpose behind what we’re doing. We believe in our widget. We’re doing more than giving people a good time or a better toothbrush, because it’s hard to put in your heart and soul and sacrifice so much to make a better toothbrush.”

 

Now, if we replace ‘widget’ with what Osteen is supposedly ‘producing’, the danger is quite apparent:

“Very rarely will you find a company that produces a [Gospel] where everyone is mentally and spiritually into producing a better [Gospel],” Osteen says. “There’s a purpose behind what we’re doing. We believe in our [Gospel]. We’re doing more than giving people a good time or a better toothbrush, because it’s hard to put in your heart and soul and sacrifice so much to make a better [Gospel].”

 

But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.’ ~ Galatians 1:8

 

 

 

  • A Nebraska State Senator is suing…God. He ‘blames God for causing “calamitous catastrophes resulting in the wide-spread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth’s inhabitants including innocent babes, infants, children, the aged and infirm without mercy or distinction.”’ His lawsuit is certainly frivolous and ill-conceived, not to mention blasphemous (see the book of Job), but the centrality of his argument is, quite frankly, biblically correct.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • In the Land of the Free Report: An Idaho man has been sentenced to federal prison for supposedly polluting a stream—that doesn’t exist.
