Emperor: I may be naked, but I can still get you

13-Jul-09

Q:  What do Joe Wurzelbacher, Frank Ricci, and the CIA have in common? A:  All of them embarrassed powerful liberal interests and got (or are getting) thoroughly trashed. Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, gave Mr. Obama a bit of backtalk about wealth redistribution during the presidential campaign.  Liberals in state government knew just […]

Wind projects needing new investors

13-Jul-09

I discussed the Cape Wind project a few weeks ago where a bit of simple arithmetic shows it’s a money loser.  Investors are catching on, and a number of wind projects are stuck in the doldrums.   People close to the Cape Wind project are complaining that regulatory hurdles are in the way.  This is bitterly […]

Information density

12-Jul-09

One of the features of Baptist preaching is its emphasis on trying to make everything accessible to everyone.  Sometimes that’s a good thing.  The Gospel is not complex and should not be preached as if it were.  I freely acknowledge that the depth of the Gospel is beyond any of us, but I also know […]

Getting it right on baptism

11-Jul-09

And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?  And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  […]

Wind power: Works better if you don’t need it.

09-Jul-09

The Energy Information Administration compiles statistics on electric power generation among other things.  Last year’s statistics for wind generation show an interesting problem for producers and utilities alike, which is that electrical generation from wind is at its lowest during the peak summer months.  Conversely, its strongest showing is in the milder months when power […]

Is this a great country, or what?

Worlds apart

06-Jul-09

Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.  (Romans 3:19) Convincing Us of Sin The passage above is lifted from the larger context of Romans 3:9-23 where Paul quotes […]

How to kill ObamaCare® before it kills you

05-Jul-09

We just need to get the law structured so that all members of the government, including members of Congress, are written into the same plan as everyone else, mandatory, no exceptions, and no special privileges for anybody.  It’ll be dead before the ink is dry. otherbrothersteve@gmail.com

WaPo’s over-edited apology letter

05-Jul-09

The Washington Post got caught last week with all four hands and both feet in a rather obvious scam.  In my private opinion based on reading the published reports, it appears the WaPo got used by somebody within the Obama administration to set up a pay-to-play party on health care.  For a fee of thousands […]

Why I seldom need to discuss economics

05-Jul-09

It’s because Doug Wilson has already done it.  Follow the link to another excellent explanation of why earthbound economic approaches never quite work out.  The key to understanding it is that Christ is Lord over all, and whatever fragment of society isn’t submitted to him and his truth is just plain busted. The Economics of […]

Government health care, British style

04-Jul-09

Check out this sickening news item from the BBC about maggots being found in operating rooms.  Normally you’re more concerned about sterile procedures than about calling the Verminator.  During the HillaryCare® debacle, Americans decided they just don’t trust the government with their health care.  The British may eventually conclude the same thing. That won’t keep […]

Michael Jackson, one lesson learned

04-Jul-09

It’s too early to sum up Jackson’s tragic life.  That will have to wait a while as was the case with Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Keith Moon, John Bonham, Jimi Hendrix, Sid Vicious, and a host of others.  One thing is becoming clear as autopsy reports emerge along with the results of a […]

Thomas Jefferson: Threat to the republic

03-Jul-09

The New Amsterdam Post-Dispatch, July 3, 1776 Reports have lately come to our notice that one Thomas Jefferson of Virginia hath presented to the Congress of these United States a certain document which he hopes shall stand as the cornerstone of our Republic.  We have thought it a fitting discharge of our duty in the […]

The WaPo sheds its integrity fig leaf

02-Jul-09

The Washington Post has been cashing in on access to Obama officials.  Caught green-handed, they’re looking for a climbdown.  The mainstream media do not have enough integrity left to convince an honest man of his own name.  This appears to my untrained eye to have been a meeting to flesh out the plans ObamaCare® and […]

Health care: End of a free America?

01-Jul-09

We will be Pharaoh’s servants…  (Gen 47:25) I mentioned a few days ago that the Waxman-Markey bill is a tax bill.  Like all tax bills, it is a power grab.  The next power grab, possibly fatal to American-style freedom, is health care. Why the sour puss of doom over this?  Because the government will then […]
