Wisdom of the Day


Resist the Devil! If you don't, God won't. God will allow anything you allow.

I Hope You Never Need One...


But when you do need a gun, it sure is nice to have one available. Mother with shotgun saves her daughter from kidnapping.
The man threw the woman to the floor but she continued to fight him as he struck and kicked her. He then grabbed the 2-year-old and tried to get to his car.

The woman then got the shotgun and ordered the man to release her daughter. The suspect dropped the child and then drove south on Maple Avenue.

Government Waste


Gun ID legislation may trigger exodus of gunmakers Remington, Colt
Microstamping, or ballistic imprinting, is a patented process that uses laser technology to engrave a tiny marking of the make, model and serial number on the tip of a gun’s firing pin to allow an imprint of that information on spent cartridge cases. Supporters of the technology say it will be a "game changer," allowing authorities to quickly identify the registered guns used in crimes. Opponents claim the process is costly, unreliable and may ultimately impact the local economies that heavily depend on the gun industry, including Ilion, N.Y., where Remington Arms maintains a factory, and Hartford, Conn., where Colt's manufacturing is headquartered.
First of all, Remington and Colt should have moved out of those states a long time ago, what they're still doing there, I don't know.

Second, did they ever stop to think that right after they implement their "game changer" technology, criminals would just sand off the tip of the firing pin or install a different pin? Criminals can say, "game changer," too. They already sand off the serial numbers or just use a stolen gun.

Third, this is a complete waste of time and money.

Criminals - political or street - don't want citizens to have guns. Why? Because people with guns can fight back. Why do you think the mafia stronghold of the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area is one big gun-free zone? Chicago, too. Think about it.

He's Still the Best in My Book


USADA to Strip Lance Armstrong of 7 Tour de France Titles, Ban Him For Life
Armstrong, who retired last year, declined to enter USADA's arbitration process – his last option – because he said he was weary of fighting accusations that have dogged him for years. He has consistently pointed to the hundreds of drug tests that he has passed as proof of his innocence during his extraordinary run of Tour titles stretching from 1999-2005.

"There comes a point in every man's life when he has to say, "Enough is enough." For me, that time is now," Armstrong said in a statement sent to The Associated Press. He called the USADA investigation an "unconstitutional witch hunt."

"I have been dealing with claims that I cheated and had an unfair advantage in winning my seven Tours since 1999," he said. "The toll this has taken on my family and my work for our foundation and on me leads me to where I am today – finished with this nonsense."
They've been after Lance Armstrong for years and have found no proof of their allegations and yet they just keep going after him year after year. I don't blame him at all for his decision.

It seems like someone at the USADA has a personal vendetta against Armstrong. He has probably been tested more than anyone else and all tests have been negative. Leave him alone already. My guess is the USADA is populated by liberals. That is not a joke.

Managing the World...


Somebody has to do it.

Bill Gates and Microsoft have long had the reputation of 'evil' capitalist, while Steve Jobs and Apple have been the darling of the left for as long. The funny thing is, it seems the opposite is closer to the truth. Steve Jobs was more the capitalist, while Bill Gates has his hands and money in the leftist ideals of big government managing population growth and CO2 emissions. He wants to bring CO2 emissions to zero. Yes, zero. But in the following quote he is talking about population control.
Discussing the "P," or population portion of the equation, he stated, "Let's take a look. First we got population. The world today has 6.8 billion people. That's headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent"
I guess I'm a bit naive, but I always thought the purpose of vaccines, health care, and reproductive services were to help people live long, healthy lives. No? Didn't you think that? Kind of makes you think of Obamacare in a different light, doesn't it?
The entire world will beg to bow before me, their charismatic despot. --The Brain
Tomorrow night, Pinky, we will come up with a new plan. One that isn't foiled by the atomic weight of gold. --The Brain

FBI Getting to the Bottom of a Priority Case


FBI Investigates GOP Members Over Israel Skinny Dip Mishap
During a 2011 fact-finding trip to Israel, a contingent of GOP freshmen lawmakers and "top leadership staff" allegedly had a few drinks and went for a late night swim in the Sea of Galilee.

And, yes, the FBI interviewed those involved over reports that they might have engaged in "inappropriate behavior."

About 20 people took part in the swim (most of them clothed or partially disrobed) and Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-Kan.) actually took off his all his clothes, according to POLITICO.
They are investigating the crime of skinny dipping in the Sea of Galilee while Republican. Because, if Obama had done this thought of doing this, don't you think it would be a chapter in one of his autobiographies? And everybody would be gushing about how cool he was?

Meanwhile, Fast and Furious...

Putting the Cart Before the Horse


Atheists claim Ground Zero cross sickens them
A lawsuit that challenges the placement of the cross at the site of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center alleges atheist plaintiffs have suffered serious physical and mental illness because the religious symbol has made them feel excluded.
No, no, no. They feel excluded because they suffer serious physical and mental illness. There's a difference.

I consider myself a Christian, for lack of a better name - I follow Jesus, although I personally prefer to use the name Yeshua for reasons I won't go into here. But I don't quibble, I use both. The point is, I don't use the cross. I don't believe we should be making or using crosses. I don't think it's biblical to use it as a symbol, it's something people have added. I don't bother other people with my belief, it's just a personal thing for me. If you like it, more power to you.

Now, if I go somewhere and see a cross, it doesn't offend me. I don't become physically or mentally ill. I don't care where I see it, same effect. Nothing. If I see a Jewish Star of David, that also has no effect on me. Even if I see a Muslim crescent, which if anyone's religion offends me it's that one, it also has no physical or mental effect. I just go about my life. The little Darwin fish thingy doesn't make me sick either.

If any of these symbols seem to effect you physically or mentally, may I suggest you get some help because you seem to need it. It may not be a full-blown mental illness, but something is unbalanced in your brain.

The above does not say all atheists are mentally ill. It also does not say only atheists are mentally ill. It does say, "People, get a grip."

Cows Eating Candy?


What could go wrong?

Cows eating candy during the drought
His 1,400 cattle are no longer feeding off corn. The prices, Watson says, are too high to keep corn in stock. So earlier this year, he began to buy second-hand candy.
Corn prices are too high, of course, because the government in its infinite wisdom has decided that we are required to put ethanol in our gasoline. Ethanol is made mostly from corn. The government subsidizes this because no one actually wants ethanol in their gasoline as it reduces gas mileage and can damage the engine. No one wants to pay the ever higher prices for food that this is contributing to, either. Some can't.

Bonus points for more people on food stamps. Double bonus points for more sickly people (because our food is eating candy) who can't afford health care and must bend the knee to government for help.

Does anyone who voted for Obama see how government intervention in the private market causes EVERYTHING to cost more? People have to pay more for their personal needs and also pay more taxes because the government has to pay for the subsidies and take on the ever increasing numbers of people who just can't afford to live anymore.

Lying in Jesus' Name


Because suddenly the atheist*, baby killing, money grubbing, elitist liars want you to believe they are for wealth redistribution because Jesus wants us to help the poor. I'm sorry, but where are all the poor people that have been helped by all the trillions of dollars that have been stolen from the American people and given to special interests of the Obama administration? Do I hear crickets? How are all these poor people being helped by tripling gas and electricity prices? Or losing their jobs because coal is not politically correct? Or dwindling donations to charity because people just can't afford to give anymore? How exactly are poor people being helped by the 'progressives' running the country into the ground? By adding to their number because misery loves company?

Funny how the politicians don't seem to have any problem accumulating wealth. How does that happen?
Stop ignorantly using Jesus to justify confiscation by a soulless government. It's very offensive to my religion. Frank J


The Truth Shall Set You Free
God does not want you to be manipulated by political or religious leaders. If there is one thing that ticked Jesus off, it was that very thing as practiced by the Sadducees and Pharisees. Freedom is a precious thing that propaganda will jeopardize. Jesus knew what he meant when he said the truth will set you free.
*No offense to atheists, by Marxist leaning governments are traditionally atheist and doing it in the name of Jesus is a new lie they have come up with.

Wait. What?


$100K Karma Hybrid Reportedly 'Bursts Into Flames' in CA Parking Lot
A Fisker Karma driver from Woodside, California parked his hybrid at the grocery store... and after grabbing the items he needed, returned to the parking lot to find that his vehicle was on fire.

He called the manufacturer immediately, who then told him to call 911.
He walks out of the store, sees his car on fire, and immediately calls... the manufacturer?

Where's the Outrage?


I guess when the price of electricity triples the American people will finally notice. Why wait? We know what is happening now. CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, New York Times won't touch this story. No mainstream media outlet is covering this.

Who is the Job Destroyer?



Why isn't Romney using the coal industry as an example of Obama destroying jobs? Where are the Republicans on this? It's like they are relying on people voting against Obama and just trying to keep quiet until it's over. Sometimes you have to get aggressive. The Democrats treat this like war, and they do and say anything regardless of truth or legality. Republicans treat it like it's in God's hands, but God won't do anything for you if you don't do anything for yourself. Get up and take a stand. Republicans have no idea how to use the media. This election shouldn't even be close, there should be no contest. Look at Chris Christie, I don't agree with him on everything (like gun control) but he knows how to work the system and get things done.

6 Months Ago


Allen West Sends Chick-Fil-A To Black Caucus Meeting And Offends Everyone, Says Dem Rep

They didn't know they were supposed to be offended by Chic-Fil-A 6 months ago but, in retrospect, that was offensive. When I first saw this article I thought it had just happened. Nope.
Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) told The Huffington Post that the incident happened about six months ago but is now fresh in his mind given West's recent comments in support of the fast food chain,
Then I thought, maybe they are saying it was offensive because it was fried chicken. Nope.
"We have fried chicken. And we have catfish and BBQ. We do not have watermelon, although sometimes people will have fruit. We serve a full course meal with collard greens. We have Jamaican beans and rice," Hastings said. But West "sent Chick-fil-A with biscuits. Ok?"
OK!! I want to wake up tomorrow in a sane world, please. Or at least a sane United States.

P.S. I would vote for Allen West in a heartbeat.

Behold your King!


Mocking Jesus
Given the notion of the three figures–with Jesus’ disciples asking about sitting at his "right and left hand" in his glorious kingdom, isn't it likely that the Romans intended the two others crucified with Jesus, one on the right, the other on the left, to be a way of mocking him as "King of the Jews"?
Who really knows what they were thinking when they did this or how much they knew of what transpired with His disciples, but they are still mocking today, aren't they? They like mocking.

There Must Be Something Wrong With Me




I can't get that excited about anything.

I'm Missing Something Here


Lifeguard gets bill after ocean rescue
Seventeen-year-old John Clark, a senior at Hudson's Bay, says he didn't think twice about running into the ocean to save a drowning 12-year-old.

But what he hasn't stopped thinking about, is the bill he received as a result of his effort.

The emergency room bill came to $449. The physician's bill was $227. The 15-mile ride in the ambulance to Tillamook: $1,907. The total bill for saving a young man's life? Nearly $2,600.
I'm missing the part about where it is the responsibility of John Clark to pay the medical bills of a 12-year old that he saved from drowning. It is not his child. Why is it not the responsibility of the parents to pay it? John may not have thought twice about saving that kid but if it happens again he sure will.
