‘When Peter saw this, he said to them: “Men of Israel, why does this surprise you?’ ~ Acts 3:12a


  • According to conservative columnist Kathleen Parker, it appears that the bloom is off the Palin Rose: ‘Palin’s recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who is clearly out of her league.’


Case in point: This is what I have labelled the Moose-in-the-Headlights Interview.

(It’s just plain painful to watch.)




‘This [Federal Reserve Act] establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the president [Woodrow Wilson] signs this bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalised… [T]he worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill… From now on, depressions will be scientifically created.’ ~ Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr. (1913)






‘[Economic conquest] … takes place when nations are placed under “tribute” without the use of visible force or coercion, so that the victims do not realize they have been conquered. “Tribute” is collected from them in the form of “legal” debts and taxes, and they believe they are paying it for their own good, for the good of others, or to protect all from some enemy. Their captors become their “benefactors” and “protectors”… The government will own nothing, the people will own nothing, and the banks will own everything.’



  • I almost fell out from underneath my tinfoil hat this morning when I read the following headline: ‘China Fakes Report from Space.’ Wait a minute! I thought that kind of talk was just conspiracy theory gobbledy-gook?!







  • The world no longer has the capacity to absorb fake U.S. dollars.’  ~  Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad



I think NFL Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway and Tom Petty were twins who were separated at birth.

See what I mean?!

  1. I’m not sure I see how the piece on the lesbians having their picture in the yearbook means homeschooling is good. If you don’t like public schools that’s fine. However just because one alternative is bad doesn’t necessarily make the other good. If you believe in this logic then your whole premise of not selecting a political candidate is flawed because it would mean that I just pick the worse one and go the other way.
    Don’t take this for me saying either homeschooling or public schools are good or bad; this is purely about the thought process you are showing here that you don’t show elsewhere – or allow others to (myself not included because I agree in not voting for either of these talking heads).
    BTW, we still on for Wednesday?

  2. I probably could have phrased it better but my point was to point out to those who rail against homeschooling what the alternative is. The behaviour mentioned in the article is the exact type of thing those of us who support homeschooling hope to shield our children from.

    The horror stories that I hear from friends and family members who are teachers or administrators in the government school system keep me awake at night trying to make sure that I protect my children from those influences.
