A Nanny State to Rely On

Fireman and a policeman refuse to rescue a man having a seizure in a few inches of water citing safety rules.
In a story that seems too unbelievable to be true, a charity shop worker drowned in a shallow lake in Gosport, England, after firemen and rescue workers stood by and refused to help. The man, 41-year-old Simon Burgess, fell into the water while feeding swans and was left there until a rescue team with individuals who were legally able to assist reached him 28 minutes later.

The firemen, who were reportedly only 25 feet away from the man, allegedly refused to rescue the man, as they cited health and safety regulations. And a police officer who arrived after learning about the incident was reportedly called back after he started moving into the ankle-deep water to rescue the man.
Absolutely pathetic.

Police State

A dad was arrested when he went to pick up his child at school because his daughter drew a picture of a gun. You have to hear this report. Unbelievable.

Ministry Highlight

The one that forgives is the one that suffers. --J. Edwin Orr
If you've never heard Dr. Orr speak, you are really missing something. I consider it a great blessing that these recordings are available and that I stumbled across his work a couple years ago. I revisited the website yesterday and realized there were some recordings that they must have added since my last visit. Or somehow I missed them? I began listening this morning and I must say, he really cuts through all the clutter and confusion that is out there in a common sense way with great storytelling ability. The one titled "Axiom, Fact, Hypothesis" is a very good one if your looking for one to start.

The website: J. Edwin Orr
Dr. J. Edwin Orr was born in Belfast in 1912 and concluded his work on earth in 1987. Professor Orr was passionately committed to Jesus Christ and dedicated his life to understanding and furthering the work of God - especially in revival and spiritual awakening. This website comes from the conviction that Dr. Orr has much to say to the Christian world today, because his message was a profoundly powerful, eloquent, and accurate explanation of what the Bible says about revival, awakening, and the deeper Christian life.

To Protect and Serve (If We Get Around To It)

This happened in California, where they deny you your right to carry a gun to defend yourself.
Last weekend, a 67 year-old Berkeley, California man calmly phoned the police, requesting protection from an aggressive trespasser that had confronted him and his wife in their garage. The call was "queued for dispatch", but then ignored because the police were shorthanded at the time.

Sadly, less than 13 minutes after the police call, the mentally ill trespasser returned and attacked the man in front of his home, dragged him into the bushes and beat him with a large flowerpot, while the victim's wife watched helplessly. The man died later.

Maybe We Didn't Appologize Enough

5 Killed in Violent Riots Over Koran Burning on U.S. Air Base in Afghanistan

I was going to post the video here but to tell you the truth I'm embarrassed by it. Maybe he should try kneeling, facing Mecca and offering his neck to the sword. Either that or he missed the pregnant suit training.

Quote of the Day

"If we could just bring ourselves to think of human beings as individuals rather than as members of groups, a good portion of the world's sorrow could be averted."

Tolerance, Schmolerance: Kill Everyone Who Disagrees

Iran court convicts Christian pastor convert to death
A trial court in Iran has issued its final verdict, ordering a Christian pastor to be put to death for leaving Islam and converting to Christianity,
Pray for Christians around the world, I think many of us take the peace and safety we have in America for granted. The world is not a friendly place.

I Think We Are Done For

Soldiers don fake belly, breasts to better understand pregnant troops' exercise concerns
The Army is ordering its hardened combat veterans to wear fake breasts and empathy bellies so they can better understand how pregnant soldiers feel during physical training.

We are almost here:

America has become a Monty Python skit. I do not blame the soldier, they don't want this, they want no part of this. I blame the leadership - military and government.

Steve Jobs the Capitalist

Here is an very early (1980) speech by Steve Jobs and it is very interesting. I will never understand why he is the hero of the left - he is full-on capitalist - except maybe it is because his products appeal to their elitism. The website I found the video on even calls him a hippie.

He did what every American should dream of doing - find an untapped need and fill it.

Seeking God's Face

But you, when you pray, enter into your room. And shutting your door, pray to your Father in secret; and your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly. - Matthew 6:6

"God is in secret. He is hidden from the world. The world does not see Him, neither knows Him. You can never reach God in your prayers unless you shut out the world. Shutting the door means something more than closing the door of your literal closet. Persons may enter the literal closet and close the door, and yet have the world in their hearts and thoughts. Such have not closed the door in the true sense."

--Charles Ebert Orr, How to Live a Holy Life
The Kindle version of that book is free - can't beat that.

The world, not seeing God or knowing God, but hearing about Him only - and mostly lies at that - reject what they hear. They are angry because they do not understand why a loving God could allow so much suffering in the world. If He exists, why doesn't He do something, why doesn't He intervene? And rejecting what they do not understand, they have decided to take matters into their own hands. They will intervene, they will control you, they will make you act like they think you should. By any means necessary. But it never works, it cannot work.

The Dangers of Being Green

A BRIT was bitten "down under" by a killer snake while answering a call of nature in the Aussie bush.
"I went into the garden at four in the morning after a night in the pub to save flushing the toilet because water is precious in the outback."

I Feel Safer Already

Feds shut down Amish farm for selling fresh milk

Says a customer:
"I can't believe in 2012 the federal government is raiding Amish farmers at gunpoint all over a basic human right to eat natural food,"
Sadly, I can.
"In Maryland, they force taxpayers to pay for abortions, but God forbid we want the same milk our grandparents drank."
No, god (government) forbid.

Look on the bright side, you can still practically walk across our southern border unimpeded, get a fake social security number, have your kids in American hospitals, enroll them in American schools, and feed them with American foodstamps - just don't try to bring fresh milk or unsafe hairdryers with you.

Buy Our Cars With Other Peoples Money

Obama hikes subsidy to wealthy electric car buyers
The White House intends to boost government subsidies for wealthy buyers of the Chevy Volt and other new-technology vehicles — to $10,000 per buyer.

That mammoth subsidy would cost taxpayers $100 million each year if it is approved by Congress, presuming only 10,000 new-technology autos are sold each year.

The extra money for wealthy buyers will be borrowed funds, eventually paid off by future taxpayers in all income brackets.
I'm surprised they're not giving them away free with each substantial contribution to the Obama campaign.
You know how liberals are always accusing Republicans of only caring for the rich at the expense of the poor? Whatever liberals accuse others of doing, that's what they’re doing. Always. -IMAO

Preschooler's Homemade Lunch Replaced with Cafeteria "Nuggets"

A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because a state employee told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious.

The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes in her More at Four classroom that day.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Make sure to watch this full screen. Awesome.

What you see is real, but you can't see it this way with the naked eye. It is the result of 20-30 second exposures, edited together over many hours to produce the timelapse. This allows you to see the Milky Way, Aurora and other Phenonmena, in a way you wouldn't normally see them.

You Can't Make This Stuff Up

If you are Muslim you can opt out of the Obamacare health care reform laws with no penalties
If you are of the Muslim religion, you don't have to give all the new Obamacare healthcare reform regulations and penalties another thought. Because the concept of being compelled to participate in such a healthcare program offends Islamic sensibilities, Muslims are specifically exempt.

As a matter of fact if you are Amish, American Indian or a Chistian Scientist you do not need to participate or pay the taxes associated with healthcare reform. That means not having to be forced to buy healthcare insurance, not paying the taxes or the penalties if you don't get it.
You mean to say Muslims don't have a "right" to healthcare? Are they exempt from car insurance? Home insurance if they have a mortgage? Insurance on their businesses?

It All Boils Down Pretty Much to Race

I'm still continually shocked to hear some of the ignorance and stupidity that comes from some peoples mouth.
"I voted for Barack because he was black. 'Cuz that's why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them," Jackson said. "That's American politics, pure and simple. [Obama's] message didn't mean sh-t to me. In the end, he's a politician. I just hoped he would do some of what he said he was gonna do."

"It's not politics. It is not economics. It all boils down to pretty much to race. It is a shame."

--Samuel L. Jackson
Very disappointing. He just doesn't get it at all.

He's Right, You Know

Birth control is available everywhere, I hear they even give them away at colleges, probably even some high schools - in California and New York City maybe even grade schools. Availability is not a problem, getting people to use them - and correctly - is the problem.

Crime Wave?

Amscot employee kidnapped from home, forced to rob store
A family's Sunday morning had just gotten underway inside their Osceola County home, when several men stormed into the family's home around 9:00 a.m. and tied everyone up, except for one man.

Deputies told WFTV the suspects tied up everyone in the home and took off with the man.
The employee was then driven to the Amscot location at John Young Parkway and Town Center Boulevard by the suspects, according to deputies.

Investigators say the suspects forced the employee to rob the store.
We have home invasions around here so often it's almost blasé. Here's one from Saturday. If it happens so much here, how much is it happening across America? And there are people who want to disarm us to make us even more helpless? I'm seriously beginning to think the authorities want a certain amount of crime so we look to them to help us. Perhaps even to slowly create a police state. Police are more and more equipping themselves and acting more like soldiers than a civilian "Protect and Serve" police force.

And this kind of stuff - Man exposes self to kids at Titusville Walmart - same thing, you can't leave your kids alone for a second. How can you have a society where you can't trust anyone?

The Anti-Human Agenda

The Coming of the New Ice Age: End of the Global Warming Era?
The "solutions" prescribed to solve both Global Warming and the looming Ice Age are exactly the same.

In both cases, proponents of the theory-du-jour say that in order to stave off disaster, we must reverse the march of civilization, stop our profligate use of carbon-based fuels, cede power and money from the First World to the Third World, and wherever possible revert to a Luddite pre-industrial lifestyle.

I realized: The solution (commit civilizational suicide) always remains the same; all that differs are the wildly divergent purported “crises” proffered up to justify the imposition of the solution.

They Do It All For YOU

American Tyrants
No tyrant looks in a mirror and sees an oppressor. Tyrants are always protectors of the people. And our own American Tyrants are equally certain that they are the protectors of a people who would otherwise run off cliffs, throw lawn darts at each other, tear the tags off mattresses, make racist jokes, open pill bottles too easily, have inappropriate opinions and reinforce the oppressive heteronormative patriarchy which they have thoughtfully replaced with a vast echoing bureaucratic state in which everyone is free to be different in the same way.

The tyrannical impulses were always there in American liberalism and like water on lilies, power brought them forth. Now we live under a system which strangles us to protect us from ever getting rid of it. The men and women strangling us smile awkwardly and tell us that it is for our own good. This tyranny for our own good requires that they toss aside our laws and replace them with their own. It requires that they spend us into bankruptcy, with much of the proceeds going to them, but in the name of a higher cause. And it demands that we praise them and if we won't do that, then it demands that we shut up and stop broadcasting our dissatisfaction. There is no place in their ideal national community for people like us.
