Polanski, act 2

30-Sep-09

The Hollywood icons of grace and morality are beginning to weigh in on Roman Polanski’s arrest.  The U.K.’s Telegraph is reporting that over a hundred actors and actresses have signed a petition calling for Polanski to be released.  What else would you expect from a set of people who have grown rich from the sale […]

Roman Polanski and his sick defenders

28-Sep-09

Nothing could better show the casual, unself-conscious depravity of certain public figures than their reaction to Roman Polanski’s arrest.  In 1977, Polanski drugged and then raped 13-year old Samantha Geimer at the home of his friend Jack Nicholson.  Polanski pleaded guilty to the crime, but when a stunningly lenient plea bargain arrangement broke down (sentenced […]

When all you have is a hammer…

26-Sep-09

When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.  So says the old adage. Bearing witness to the truth of it, the Democrats’ proposed “health care” bill contains a provision ordering everybody to buy health insurance.  Andif you don’t?  The bill prescribes a fine of up to $25,000 and up to a […]

Great graphic from Malkin’s site

25-Sep-09

Read Michelle Malkin’s comments on the Obolatry scandal here. Photoshop: Leo Alberti And just in time to blast some propane into the fire, California has issued its rules for teaching Islamic Sharia law in its schools.  Check this out from Investor’s Business Daily.  It’s time for Christian pastors to stop walking on eggshells around this […]

The Obama cult in the schools

24-Sep-09

Let me say at the outset that Mr. Obama is not responsible for the moonbats in the government schools teaching children to sing his praises.  He didn’t tell them to do that.  He is, however, responsible to tell them to cut it out.  If he’s doing that, I haven’t heard about it. This serves to […]

Old news: Wind power loses money According to Alternative Energy News, “Vic Abate, GE’s vice-president for renewable energy, said: ‘The company now believed the subsidies in place for offshore wind, such as Britain’s Renewables Obligation, were robust enough to encourage large-scale investment. Offshore wind is more expensive, so without the subsidies and other supports the […]

A life’s work

24-Sep-09

Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. — Zechariah 4:7 The prophet Zechariah presents us with two men and a shared mission, Joshua and Zerubbabel.  Joshua is presented in chapter 3 as the hereditary […]

How to fix a spiritual cadaver

22-Sep-09

I give unto them eternal life…  —  John 10:28 Salvation happens because God wants it to.  John said that people enter into life “not of the will of man, nor of the will of the flesh.”  (John 1:13)  We misunderstand everything when we view conversion as a man-initiated act of getting religion with “getting” implying […]

Shooting the Constitution in the foot

22-Sep-09

Associated Press is reporting that football player Plaxico Burress has been sentenced to two years in prison for carrying a concealed weapon after his license had expired.  That sure seems extreme for a guy who wasn’t convicted of any other crime.  I’m not one to spend a lot of time defending rich guys who get […]

The Beast

19-Sep-09

The Bible foretells a time when political power, idolatry, and economics will converge around a system of individual surveillance so pervasive that no person will be able to evade it.  When this was written in A.D. 92 or so, the degree of control described by John in Revelation 13 was physically impossible to establish.  One […]

Heathenization

18-Sep-09

On the way to work I listened to the local National Public Radio (NPR) affliate, 90.1-FM WUJF in Inverness, Forida.  This morning they aired three consecutive segments as follows.  First came a hectoring public service announcement advising that children must never be spanked.  Second came a lengthy and lauditory feature about a Moslem youngster on […]

Mr. Obama gets one right

17-Sep-09

Canceling missile defense for Europe was a good idea.  We’ve been toting the defense bill for Europe since 1945.  If they want missile defense from Russia or Iran, they should pay for it themselves.

Here comes your middle class tax cut, Obama style.

16-Sep-09

According to the Energy Information Administration, the average electric bill in the United States is about $99.70 per month. According to the Obama administration, the proposed Waxman-Markey “cap-n’-tax” energy bill will cost the average family $1761 per year.  This equates to $146.75 per month just for the price of energy taxation.  The new total (average) […]

Conservative? You must be one o’ them there bigots.

16-Sep-09

Lucky we have Jimmy Carter to help us confront our inner Grand Dragon.  All this time I thought the policies of the president were what mattered.  Now I learn it’s all about his race.  Thanks, Jimmah.  America is forever in your debt for keeping race out of this so we can focus strictly on issues […]

Schizofashion

15-Sep-09

Fashion discussions are dangerous ground, particularly for those of us who used to dress like hippies or whatever.  You can find old pictures and videos of the Woodstock event where the hippies are drugged and rolling nekkid in mud formed from ingredients other than dirt and water.  To say that this brought no honor to […]
