‘Food gained by fraud tastes sweet to a man, but he ends up with a mouth full of gravel.’ ~ Proverbs 20:17



Funny search terms used to find my blog:

  • ‘Government should stick to punishing fraud and enforcing contracts. When they use the tax code, bureaucratic departments and their manipulative rules and regulations to dictate social and economic behavior, we end up with distortions and malinvestments. Bailing out banks, continuing failed Fed policies and strapping the taxpayer with toxic debt will worsen the pain, and punish the innocent.’  ~ Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX)




  • A new competition is providing another opportunity for churches to encourage Scripture memorization among their children. The Bible Bee, a Bible memory competition for children and youth from 7 to 18, adds a new twist to the traditional Bible Drills that Southern Baptists have used for decades. … Local Bible Bees will be conducted throughout the country Sept. 12, and 100 finalists from each of three age categories will advance to the National Bible Bee in Washington, D.C., Nov. 5-6. The Bible Bee Competition will distribute more than $260,000 in prize money with $100,000 being awarded to the first-place winner of the top age category.’  [I call John 11:35!!!  – ed.]







  • ‘When tyrants rule, jesters often boldly tell truths that falter on the lips of fear-plagued philosophers. Perhaps this explains why, amid the consolidation of a totalitarian Homeland Security State, it fell to Kevin James, gifted comic actor, mixed martial arts fan, and cinematic role model for economy-sized American men, to put into play the notion that we would be better off doing away with government police forces outright, and entrusting security to private citizens and entrepreneurs.’  [We recently saw ‘Paul Blart: Mall Cop’ and I highly—highly—recommend it.  It is clean, entertaining, and f-u-n-n-y.  – ed.]




  • Whitey Need Not Apply: Have you read Robert Reich’s (Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Labour) blog post?  It’s entitled, ‘The Stimulus: How to Create Jobs Without Them All Going to Skilled Professionals and White Male Construction Workers.’ 





  • Islam expert Robert Spencer at, an organization dedicated to bringing public attention to jihad theology and defending Western society, criticized [Rick] Warren for including a common refrain from Islam’s Quran [in his prayer at the inauguration] – “You are the compassionate and merciful one.”’ 




  • An Afghanistan Escalation Prediction Update:  Thousands of U.S. troops originally destined for Iraq have deployed south of Afghanistan‘s capital in the first illustration of a new military focus on the increasingly difficult fight in the South Asian nation, NATO said Tuesday.’  Much like Nixon, who pledged during his campaign in 1968 that u.S. forces would exit Vietnam once he was President only to escalate and continue the war for another 4 years, Obama has made Afghanistan his ‘top overseas priority’.  Some Peace Candidate, huh? 




  • It’s stories like this one that make it difficult to NOT believe in Providence. 




This is, quite possibly, the creepiest thing I have ever seen:




  • ‘American Jewish Professor Norman Finkelstein has heavily criticized Israel over its operation in Gaza. A son of Holocaust survivors, Finkelstein has been barred from Israel for 10 years and was denied tenure at DePaul University in Chicago because of his critical stance on Israeli policies. According to Finkelstein, Israel, a state built on the ashes of the Holocaust, is now committing a holocaust against Palestinians in Gaza.’
