HONOR OUR FALLEN HEROES; An Oath Keeper’s Plea

  Today is Memorial Day. During the course of the day many words, like these, will be written; many parades will be held; many gun salutes at cemeteries; many prayers offered; and many speeches made. All of these will have a singular aim, to remember and honor those who have fallen in defense of our liberty. The Commander in Chief ...

OBAMA’S ILLOGICAL ECONOMICS

There was quite a bit to comment on concerning the State of the Union speech last night. His speech seemed to have far less to do with the current state of the union than with what the president believed about what needs to be done in the future. He was in such a state of alarm, it would seem, that ...

Pleasantly Surprised by Duck Dynasty Controversy

Ok, before anyone asks, no, I have not watched the show. I’m just not really into reality TV much and I confess I have never spent much energy on any program on A&E. I also want to be very clear about what I am going to reveal here. Because of the vast numbers of people who did believe the Duck ...

A Lie or an “overly broad statement”?

On the Hannity program of Dec. 6 2013 guest Katy Pavlich sparred with a democrat of Thinkprogress.com. He said, referring to Obama’s statement “if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance”, that it was an “overly broad statement”.

The Knockout Game is too dangerous to “play” with

As a pastor I am used to presenting some sort of social commentary in my weekly messages. There is very little I have seen or known of in the past twenty years that I have not been able to critique on a biblical basis. However, a phenomenon has surfaced and gained some media attention that I was not only not ...

Absolutely the WORST part of Obamacare

The PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) more popularly known as “Obamacare”, has ‘afforded’ ample material for derision in the first month since its roll out. From computer glitches to cancer patients losing their “world class” insurance to lesser government coverage for more money, to call the beginnings of Obamacare disastrous would be to sorely underestimate how awful it ...

LESSONS FROM THE D.C. BATTLEFIELD

Now that the so-called ‘budget’ battle is over for a little while it behooves us, if we are wise, to reflect upon what we have witnessed in the political arena for the past few weeks. I say ‘so-called’ budget battle because in reality no true budget was involved. So perhaps the first lesson that should be learned is that we ...

Thought You Heard it All About the IRS?

I am not known among my acquaintances as being in favor of anything the IRS does, from it’s conception onward. However, I recently learned something that was genuinely surprising to me about the IRS, and did something I didn’t conceive as possible. It made my contempt for the IRS actually increase.  The IRS, according to a recently concluded investigation gave ...

A House Divided is Good?

Donkey Hotey (CC)

One of the interesting items which occurred during the vote in the Senate to stop the government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling was the surprise appearance of the Senate stenograhper at the microphone. She took the mike and began to decry the vote by shouting about the Freemasons and the Constitution and then quoted the Bible verse, “A house ...

Remembering a Different 9/11

Last week our nation once more remembered the attacks of 9/11/01. The memorials were again touching and my shock, sorrow and anger resurfaced as I relived that fateful day. However, I fear the country has largely moved on from 9/11 and not in a therapeutic manner even in the face of terror seemingly asserting itself anew.   Perhaps we should ...
