I believe folks are drawn to this kind of thing for two reasons: 1) They have been poorly taught that the Christian Church is a set of “Biblical Principles” instead of the place to hear the declaration of “Forgiveness of Sins through Christ and Him crucified” Read More »

President Bush’s harshest critics often described his look during moments of crisis as “deer in the headlights.” After two years of Hope and Change, America has grown accustomed to President Obama’s crisis face: eyes glazed over.
Though this is a few years old, it’s still good. Ted Nugent speaks: we laugh, we wince, we learn.
Perhaps it does not speak well of us that we so rely on visual/video presentations in getting information. It seems so much more pure to be a reader, to think and analyze in such a way that would make us not only more informed but more intelligent….or something.
Yet to see and hear the quotes themselves, from the source, is powerful stuff. Literarily, it may be the lazy way to do journalism, to just point and click, but it helps us to discern and makes it next to impossible to misquote. The commentary Ed puts with the video, as always is insightful puts the information in proper context.
The Heritage Foundation sums it up, and it is not pretty. That being said, it best be known. No wonder the president is not excited about the free exchange of information on the internet...otherwise known as The New Media. He doesn’t control it.
Explaining the Obama National Security Strategy
Yesterday the White House unveiled its national security strategy. It came in basically three parts.
Part One is the “anything but Bush” part. Where the goal is to put as much distance between Obama and Bush – even where there is not a lot space. Renaming the War on Terrorism, the war on al Qaeda is a case in point. Did the Bush administration not know it was fighting al Qaeda? Did Obama stop doing Predator strikes?
Part Two is an overwhelming desire to substitute soft power for hard power. The problem is that soft power – like diplomacy – is not a substitute for hard power.….(article continues here)
Stories like this cause me to wonder if those on the left have any warm blood at all running through their veins. What mother, from the Left OR the Right doesn’t understand how violated you would feel, should an avowed enemy moved in right next door, JUST to observe and try to find something nasty about you and everyone who means most to you, i.e., your MINOR children, your beloved husband and anybody else who is a guest at your home. When you are Sarah Palin, they hate you, just because you are you, thus you exist below a level of respect.
It is a testament to the irrelevancy of modern feminism when they stay silent about such behavior against a very successful woman who happens to be conservative. Unbelievable. This is right up there with Read More »

“What we do here is build starships,” says Jon Riding, enthusiasm lighting up his face as he tinkers with an errant laptop. “Building a steamboat, anyone can do that. Here we create things that have never been built before.”
You would be forgiven for thinking that Mr Riding is a Nasa technician, determined to travel to a galaxy far, far away. His mission – and it is literally a mission – is very different. But it does involve breaking down technological boundaries to help people reach the heavens… (article from THE INDEPENDENT continues here)
This is fascinating. What is he going to say? Apparently it is no big secret to past researchers, since they have actually published some of the material, “excepts” for other books and articles.
The man had a capacity for warmth and humor, I hope that is reflected here, and that he doesn’t descend into a whiny petty, bitter or completely cynical old man. Publication of the books will forever change the conversation about Mark Twain, I suppose that’s what he intended.
The great American writer left instructions not to publish his autobiography until 100 years after his death, which is now

Exactly a century after rumours of his death turned out to be entirely accurate, one of Mark Twain’s dying wishes is at last coming true: Read More »
