This is Crazy

A man armed with a plastic gun attacked Czech President Vaclav Klaus on Friday, firing plastic pellets at him at close range while his bodyguards just stood by.
Not only stood by while it happened, but did nothing at all afterward. The guy just walked away and did TV interviews. I think some bodyguards just lost their jobs. They show the gun at the end of the piece, it looks real, it's a CZ P07 replica, there's no way you can tell it's not a real gun if it was pulled on you quickly. The Czech president is one of the good guys.

Power Currupts...

A convicted TSA security officer says he was part of a "culture" of indifference that allowed corrupt employees to prey on passengers' luggage and personal belongings with impunity, thanks to lax oversight and tip-offs from TSA colleagues.
I think it's gone a little beyond indifference. America is coming down with the culture of corruption that plagues the Third World, it's not quite there yet but the snowball is rolling down the hill.

Freedom, for a Phone

Seriously? A phone.
Each man has his price Bob, And yours was pretty low

--Roger Waters, Too Much Rope

Arm Yourself

Restraining order useless in triple shooting
"The police are like, you have a restraining order, you've already done everything you're supposed to do," Mimy said. "Eventually he'll leave you alone. Really? Did he? No. He didn't. Because she's dead now."
A much more detailed report: Man fatally shoots 2 women, injures 1, kills self before crashing into tree

Get a gun, learn how to use it, and get a carry permit. You cannot rely on the police, you cannot rely on the government. They only help you when it is convenient for them, usually when the danger is over.

Dhimmi Nation?

The Obama administration has no problem with the persecution of Christians.

Sweeping religious persecution under the rug
The State Department recently released its annual reports on human rights violations around the world. In an unprecedented move, it conspicuously omitted any mention of religious persecution, oppression of religious minorities or violations of religious freedom.

Good Afternoon!

The second clip in this video (@13 secs) is pretty funny. You wouldn't believe it if it were not on film.

Of Cowards and Traitors

Occupy Wall Street to meet with modern day Hitler
"Ahmadinejad is also set to meet American university students, artists, intellectuals and elites, including Occupy Wall Street anti-capitalist protestors,..."
You know the guy in the movies who helps the bad guys thinking he'll get a pass when they kill everyone else? --These American university students, artists, intellectuals and elites, including Occupy Wall Street anti-capitalist protestors. BTW, that guy is usually dead long before the end of the movie and before anyone else. For good reason.

Americans Still Send Their Kids to Government Schools?

American High School Band Marches with Hammer & Sickle
A Pennsylvania high school marching band is raising eyebrows with a halftime performance that commemorates the Russian revolution, complete with red flags, olive military-style uniforms, and giant hammers and sickles.
What's next? Swastikas and jack boots? Not a lot of difference between the two, both killed multi-millions of people. Yet what the the hammer and sickle stand for is glorified by the left. Go figure. What kind of people are educating our children?

If My People...

A call to return.

Also read The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future by Jonathan Cahn

It is written in the form of a story rather than strictly informational - not my preference, but it works. Read how Isaiah 9:10 came to life in modern times, and it is factual, you can look up each point for yourself. There is no stretch required to fit the prophecy, it cannot be denied. Ignored is another story.

Nation of Whiners

How Whining Grows Government
When politicians hear us complain about our problems, they try to solve them. Just look at our massive, bloated government and our ginormous national debt — that was all built by complaining. People whined about stuff, and some politicians overheard and were like, "I bet I can solve this problem and be super popular! And I know the perfect solution: a new massive bureaucracy that costs billions of dollars!" And, of course, the only thing a massive government bureaucracy has ever solved is the problem of Americans having too much time and money.
Not to mention there is also truth in the 'power of positive thinking' and it works even better in reverse, negative thinking causes negative outcomes. In fact, beyond thinking, positive or negative talking brings an even stronger response.

Obama: King of Bad Decisions

Obama administration sends gay ambassador to Muslim Libya and does not know why he was sodomized and murdered
To cover up the sodomization and murder of a US gay ambassador by Muslims in a Muslim nation, the anti-Mohammed movie will be the perfect excuse to deflect attention from the Obama administration's bad decision to insult Muslims by sending them a gay ambassador.

Quote of the Day

"I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe . . . Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing. Make them intelligent, and they will be vigilant; give them the means of detecting the wrong, and they will apply the remedy."

― Daniel Webster

Safety Net, or Trap

Somewhere on the way to 50% of the population on the public dole, it ceases to be a safety net and becomes a trap, a way of life, a government boot on the neck of the people.

Depending on Dependency
"The theme that most seemed to rouse the enthusiasm of delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte was that we are all responsible for one another — and that Republicans don't want to help the poor, the sick and the helpless. All of us should be on guard against beliefs that flatter ourselves. At the very least, we should check such beliefs against facts. Yet the notion that people who prefer economic decisions to be made by individuals in the market are not as compassionate as people who prefer those decisions to be made collectively by politicians is seldom even thought of as a belief that should be checked against facts."

"Helping those who have been struck by unforeseeable misfortunes is fundamentally different from making dependency a way of life. Although the big word on the left is 'compassion,' the big agenda on the left is dependency. The more people who are dependent on government handouts, the more votes the left can depend on for an ever-expanding welfare state."
God brought Israel, mostly kicking and screaming, out of Egypt, out of an oppressive government, to freedom. Our Founding Fathers wanted to recreate that same freedom for America as much as possible and it is unique in the world and to be highly prized, and yet... Why do people always want to go back?????

People want to be free but they don't want other people to be free.

Evolution Answers Life's Deepest Questions?

Richard Dawkins Echoes Bill Nye: 'Who Cares About Creationists' & Their 'Deep, Profound Ignorance'
You can’t even begin to understand biology, you can’t understand life, unless you understand what it's all there for, how it arose – and that means evolution.

I think it needs serious attention, that children should be taught where they come from, what life is all about, how it started, why it's there, why there's such diversity of it, why it looks designed. These are all things that can easily be explained to a pretty young child.
Well, explain it to me, because I don't see those answers in evolution, they are not there. Clearly, you are being disingenuous to say evolution answers those questions. Science is a wonderful tool, and is in no way incompatible with a God created universe when used honestly. Science helps us to understand the world we live in, and that's wonderful. Just don't try to tell me it answers those big questions. Say, "We hope it will someday," or "This is my opinion," but don't lie about it. The fact is, the more science answers our questions, the more it gives us to be answered.

The 'Progressive' Spirit Is Not New

And they said, No, but we will have a king over us.

And we shall be, also we, like all the nations, so that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.
--1 Samuel 8:19-20
We Belong to the Government
This is the philosophy of the Democratic Party. This is the way the hierarchy of the party thinks. Democrats really believe in government – the bigger the better.

But, more importantly, they believe the people are subjects of government. The government doesn’t belong to the people, rather we belong to the government.

This, of course, is quite at odds with the kind of government our Founding Fathers conceived for America – a government, as Abraham Lincoln explained, “of the people, by the people and for the people.” In America, from the very beginning, the difference would be that we don’t belong to the government, it belongs to us.

Democrats don’t get that concept. They want America to renounce its unique experiment in liberty and go the way of the rest of the world.
