What was my wife saying about idiots at work?

Well I have refrained from blogging about the idiots that I work with. Lord knows that there have been a bunch.

Let me tell you about my former employer. He is currently under investigation from the IRS to the state licensing board governing his license. The least he can hope for is just to lose his license. He should just move back to Alabama and give it up. He's an idiot.

And now to my current employer. To my knowledge knowingly hired a guy who lied during the application and hiring phase. The rumor that I heard was that he told everyone that he had to give 2 weeks notice to his then current employer but when the office tried to contact him his girlfriend told them that he wasn't working. Refer to several of my previous blogs concerning liars. This guy hasn't said the same thing twice. He is the biggest (I mean this in the most literal sense)damned liar I have ever had to put up with in my life not to mention that his mouth and his skill level in his job don't even come close to matching. My problem is that if this Idiot is the kind of man that this corporation is willing to hire well then I had some really great job offers that I turned down for this stupid company. They are idiots.

The thing of it is that it has been a major curse for any company to dis me. For instance one company that disappointed me lost 25% of their business (thats 15 milion in sales to you who are curious). Another company all of the employees that were apart of pissing against the wall(old testament biblical) with me are no longer employed in such good jobs and their lives now suck. Here is another example. One place that severely irritated me was turned into a 4 story high pile of rubble. One company turned from a descent little co. to bankrupt.

Time after time no matter the people if they fell to the wickedness of this world and believed the rumors or played their little games their jobs ended, careers stopped, companies failed. I may not have ever understood the reasons for their demise but I know that God who knows the thoughts of every-body does. It is not me you have to worry about it is God. As long as I am willing to turn my back to them then the not so notion that vengece is mine saith the Lord applies. In other words I am not getting even.......God is. You people aren't fighting me, YOU idiots are fighting God. Knock it off so I don't have to lament over you cumquats not listening to me and falling to your destruction. Oh wait a minute I'm just gonna forget about ya's.

Why I wondered for so long. All I can tell you is that if my present employer doesn't get the proverbial stuff together they too will fall off the mountain and I will carry on. By the way my recommendation for the owner of this place is to sell the mega termite infested stink trap before it takes him down. I hear that there is a slum lord that wants it and if I were him I'd sell while the selling was good. To those that work thier----waaaaa. Good luck cause since I don't believe in luck that is all any of you will have. To the next employer. Don't let any idiots near me cause if you nincompoops do? Well lets just say that I won't get in the way of God punishing you ie. I won't intervene nor intercede for you. Another way of putting it is it's your destruction not mine.

Be smart people and start believing that God is swift to punish and I have a trail of destroyed people and businesses to prove it. Also God is extremely thorough. None escape. You people should learn from the previous idiots and prove that maybe even fools can get a little wisdom. By the way I only wished them well and they only treated me ill.

Ok, now who's next on the idiot parade Next!

I am very glad to report that Living in Babylon is back in the blogging bis. Though he has been back for a while one of his recent entries draws my attention for it's absurdity and proof that liberals and devocrats are collectively insane. That's what they get for turning their back on God. NUTS! By the way his link is on my side bar. Also I want to say that with people like him and several others I know that Wis. is in good hands.

...And all this is after a recent (but little reported on) study showing that well over 30% of public school teachers in big cities send their children to private schools!! They recognize the abysmal failure most of our public schools have become, yet keep resisting the charter school and voucher program movements because of their best buddy, the good 'ol NEA! All the while, sending their own children to better schools...I wonder how they explain this to the parents of the children they teach?

From Town on side bar)

I just have to have this article for my archives, and by the way Al I found out where you got the word echtoprhenism; echtoplasmanism, echtoschiziophrenism, oh forget it,from, or did he get it from you.

American Evangelicalism: A Non-Prophet Organization
Doug Giles

October 30th

“If Christ were to go to the Christian Booksellers Convention
[CBA] and see all the crap being hawked with his name on it,
he could spend all day there turning over the tables. The reason
why we have a problem with this, and not with the account
of Christ cleansing the temple two thousand years ago, is that
in this scenario, Christ is messing with our tables, our profits,
our religious scams. Everybody is against two thousand year
old sins. But it takes a prophet to be against the currently
approved abominations.” -Douglas Wilson

You know what the church needs more than Joan Rivers needs her plastic surgeon, a case of support hose and a lifetime supply of Xanax? We need ten thousand John get-out-of-my-face-and-get-on-your-knees-before-God the Baptists. That’s right: we need a mega-dose of truly prophetic ministers to lead us in these days of adversity.

Now, when I speak of our need of prophets, I’m not talking about those charismatic/Pentecostal fortune-telling soothsayers, AKA Dionne Warwick, who can tell you your 7th grade locker number and your mother’s maiden name and predict that six months from now you’ll be arrested at Miami International Airport as you try to sneak 11 joints through airport security in your lipstick case. That’s not the prophetic ministry I’m speaking of.

The prophetic ministers I’m talking about are the thunder-clapping, devil-threatening, idol-smashing, truth dealers who can effectively lead the body of Christ out of the fog of its current compromise, cowardice and general fuzziness and into the light of conviction, courage and straightforward clarity.

The Church is currently up against difficulties and deceptions, within the Church and around the world, that border on the abysmally black hole of the Dark Ages.

As if that weren’t enough for committed Christians to deal with, the events of 9/11 and the last three years have added two heaping tablespoons of Islamic Cayenne pepper to the “let’s get rid of Christianity” soup.

Check it out. We have to deal with Marilyn Manson wearing a unitard with uber-white quail legs, at the same time we have to deal with secular humanism growing within our culture faster than the lint ball in James Gandolfini’s navel … at the same time as we are fending off Islamic radicals who view us as infidels. They see our nation, freedom and culture as “the great Satan” who would love nothing more than to see Charlie’s Angels dressed in berkas.

Our mission field in postmodern America is governed by demons that make demons tremble. We’re up against world rulers of wickedness and spiritual forces of darkness for which a simple “kum ba ya, my Lord” will not suffice.

As I see it, the Church has two options:
1) Run like Tommy Lee after accidentally stepping into a luncheon led by Rosie O’Donnell, or
2) Stand up, shape up and solidly enter into the spiritual fray with tools to tackle the powers of darkness, head on.

I’ll argumentatively argue for the latter argument, thanks.

It’s time for courageous Christian men and women to step up to the plate and for all the little tinker pot girlie men to retreat to the stands and sit there with Mummy until the dust clears.

In times of crisis our area of critical need is for leaders who can think widely and deeply, who can lead courageously and bring our great nation and the Church through spiritual obfuscation and demonic debilities. We must resurrect biblical truth, and apply it even-handedly to all of society during these days of decline.

This means Lamb Chop, Kermit and all Evangelical marionettes occupying pulpits and pews must sit down and hush because the times demand prophets.

We need prophets who could care less about:
· Political Correctness
· Style over Substance
· What the Masses and Wusses are Yapping for
· Being Popular

My ClashPoint is this: I’m not a doom and gloomer. It is not as if we are approaching the end of civilization’s road; it’s not even the beginning of the end. Most likely, it is the end of the beginning … who knows where we stand from an eschatological view point? However, I do know where we stand from an ecclesiastical and missiological point of view. We stand where we have always been supposed to stand, as the pillar of truth who proclaim it publicly and globally, applying it fully to all of life.

And guess what, Church? Just as Ringo said, “You know it don’t come easy.”

Come on … we don’t need anymore nicety-nice clergy in charge of churches that don’t equip us to face the real issues confronting our church and culture. We can do without spineless crowd pleasers, can’t we? We really do not need narcissistic, solipsistic, pseudo saints. What we need are prophets, stalwart sons and daughters who will speak and defend truth, freedom and human rights in the face of atheism, lies and hellbent special interest groups!

Doug Giles' provocative weekly one-hour radio program, 'The Clash', has re-launched with several new features. Go to and hit 'listen live.'

I really would that people especially Christians understand including the scholarly types that what we may have experienced from 1963 till approx 2000 may have very well been from the machinations of these two kingdoms.

Christians have known that things that are weird were going on yet none that I have ever talked to ever said that we were in the tribulation. No preachers sermon that I heard or a sermon that mentioned of the end ever said that we were in the tribulation. The fact is that the tribulation is going to be far worse than even the dark ages when the plague was attacking the human race. In fact it is quite understandable that people would think that those were the days prophesied about. Still man has not seen the level of death and destruction that shall herald in the tribulation. And there shall be more even after that. Most biblical scholars do agree that for 7 years the world shall be in such a quandary as to be collectively insane and would completely destroy itself if God does not intervene. And he will.

Dan 11:27 And both these kings' hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end shall be at the time appointed.

I think I will hunt up all the verses from the Book of Daniel that reiterate these very words. It is as if God by Daniel is continuously reminding us that this is not the end of times but it is to happen before the end of times yet is close to the end of times. Alexander the great and his activities were not at the end of times. Ok I will and I will post them in this entry.

Dan 8:17 So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.

Dan 8:19 And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.

Dan 11:35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.

Dan 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships;

I wonder some if Hitler doesn't fit the descriptor of this particular individual found in Dan 11:40 if so I think that all the talk about Hitler being alive for so long ....... I would have to try and describe the spiritual perspective of this and I deign not to.

That is another blog.......Maybe.

Now what were you people saying about centralized and socialized government being better. Phht. Of course we have to remind ourselves that Europeans are going extinct anyway what with the low birth rate and all.

Here is an article with some stats that are astonishing.

Since the early 1990s, European unemployment has averaged 11 percent, compared to 4 percent in the United States.
According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, EU countries have not created a single, net private sector job since 1970, compared to 50 million jobs added in the United States.

A trackback to previous entries concerning Revelations

Ok so I am not able to at this time to give you a trackback link to some of the articles concerning the end times so I will give you the date where you can start. Of course you may peruse this whole Blog but what you will find is an amalgamation of stuff. Perhaps entertaining perhaps not.

The Latest date for an entry begins on Saturday, June 5th 2004.

Lets try this.


Ok. I have just found an incredible article written in associated press concerning a squatter and a woman on vacation. This you just have to read on MSN today. Can't post it because the APdos't want it republished by anyone else for some monetary reason. but hear is a link(I hope).

Back from a long siesta.

Actually a virus nailed us again and the interface for the CD-rom is gone so I couldn't reload the internet service we have. We finally caved and loaded up the msn available to us that came with our software package got on line and downloaded an anti-virus prog got rid of the viruses and voila. Still can't use our CD-Rom which means I can't play my PC-games which I really miss. But I have been seriously considering purchasing a new comp anyway cause this one isn't quite big enough or fast enough to play some of the newer games.

Like I need 512 of Ram and 2mghz or faster and all that computer blah blah.

well anyway just lettin all my 3 readers know that I am ALIVE.

I know quite a few people just like this

And frankly since they tend to work outside of the system,mainly because of thier lack of patience probably brought on by thier own fear of thier mortality, they literally become the enemies of not only the state but of the majority of people who live for the most part within the boundaries of the laws of the state, which would include me. The rest of this article and links to further information can be found at Old Whigs site. And if a bunch of these people become a part of a group within the state like the Demoncrats then they-feading off of the lawlessness generated from these similar fears we end up with a path to an oppressive Government.

Here is something to wine about

n Eye-Popping Benefit of Drinking Wine Moderate consumption of wine may protect you from dying by any cause, especially heart disease. Why are Americans who have high blood pressure more likely to die from heart disease than those who also have high blood pressure but live in the Mediterranean? The researchers from Hospital Emile Roux in Limeil-Brévannes in France think the answer is wine consumption, reports the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
The study: Between 1978 and 1985, more than 36,000 healthy middle-aged men who were not taking drugs for risk factors known to cause heart disease, such as high blood pressure, were given a physical examination. Their drinking habits were noted. They were then followed for 13 to 21 years. During the study period, 4,203 of the men died.
The results: Moderate wine drinkers--no matter what their blood pressure--were significantly less likely to die from any cause. Here are the eye-popping numbers based on the average systolic (top number) blood pressure:--158 mm Hg: 23 percent lower risk of death than nondrinkers--139 mm Hg: 27 percent lower risk of death than nondrinkers--116 mm Hg: 37 percent lower risk of death than nondrinkers*Note that anything over 140 mm Hg is considered to be high blood pressure.
Moderation is key. One glass of wine contains 10.5 grams of alcohol, while a 12-ounce bottle of beer contains 11 to 14 grams of alcohol. Those who drank more than 60 grams a day of alcohol from wine or a combination of wine and beer did not enjoy these death protection benefits.

I guess I am in the mood for snapping up articles from others

This one is from Scott at Living (link on my sidebar)in Babylon who has some of the speeches from the republican National Convention.

Also a comment concerning why the Democrats did not get a "bounce" out of their convention And the Republicans did. The Democrats try to rationalize or use proof like logicizing to put to formula the American dream and ideals. I have heard many times that they; in a state of denial, would say that they lost because they failed to communicate their ideals well enough to convince the voters that they deserved to be in control. Like it was a communication problem instead of an ideal problem.

In fact the American people have long since figured out the ideals of the Democratic party and have been deciding that they did not match their own and have also decided that they would not just follow the Dems down whatever imaginary and non-existant road they said led to utopia.

Text of speech by Democratic Sen. Zell Miller of Georgia as prepared for delivery Wednesday at the Republican National Convention:------------------------------------------------------------------Since I last stood in this spot, a whole new generation of the Miller Family has been born: Four great grandchildren.Along with all the other members of our close-knit family, they are my and Shirley's most precious possessions.And I know that's how you feel about your family also. Like you, I think of their future, the promises and the perils they will face.Like you, I believe that the next four years will determine what kind of world they will grow up in.And like you, I ask which leader is it today that has the vision, the willpower and, yes, the backbone to best protect my family?The clear answer to that question has placed me in this hall with you tonight. For my family is more important than my party.There is but one man to whom I am willing to entrust their future and that man's name is George Bush.In the summer of 1940, I was an 8-year-old boy living in a remote little Appalachian valley. Our country was not yet at war, but even we children knew that there were some crazy men across the ocean who would kill us if they could.President Roosevelt, in his speech that summer, told America "all private plans, all private lives, have been in a sense repealed by an overriding public danger."In 1940, Wendell Wilkie was the Republican nominee.And there is no better example of someone repealing their "private plans" than this good man.He gave Roosevelt the critical support he needed for a peacetime draft, an unpopular idea at the time.And he made it clear that he would rather lose the election than make national security a partisan campaign issue.Shortly before Wilkie died, he told a friend, that if he could write his own epitaph and had to choose between "here lies a president" or "here lies one who contributed to saving freedom," he would prefer the latter.Where are such statesmen today?Where is the bipartisanship in this country when we need it most?Now, while young Americans are dying in the sands of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan, our nation is being torn apart and made weaker because of the Democrat's manic obsession to bring down our Commander in Chief.What has happened to the party I've spent my life working in?I can remember when Democrats believed that it was the duty of America to fight for freedom over tyranny.It was Democratic President Harry Truman who pushed the Red Army out of Iran, who came to the aid of Greece when Communists threatened to overthrow it, who stared down the Soviet blockade of West Berlin by flying in supplies and saving the city.Time after time in our history, in the face of great danger, Democrats and Republicans worked together to ensure that freedom would not falter. But not today.Motivated more by partisan politics than by national security, today's Democratic leaders see America as an occupier, not a liberator.And nothing makes this Marine madder than someone calling American troops occupiers rather than liberators.Tell that to the one-half of Europe that was freed because Franklin Roosevelt led an army of liberators, not occupiers.Tell that to the lower half of the Korean Peninsula that is free because Dwight Eisenhower commanded an army of liberators, not occupiers.Tell that to the half a billion men, women and children who are free today from the Baltics to the Crimea, from Poland to Siberia, because Ronald Reagan rebuilt a military of liberators, not occupiers.Never in the history of the world has any soldier sacrificed more for the freedom and liberty of total strangers than the American soldier. And, our soldiers don't just give freedom abroad, they preserve it for us here at home.For it has been said so truthfully that it is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest.It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives that protester the freedom to abuse and burn that flag.No one should dare to even think about being the Commander in Chief of this country if he doesn't believe with all his heart that our soldiers are liberators abroad and defenders of freedom at home.But don't waste your breath telling that to the leaders of my party today. In their warped way of thinking America is the problem, not the solution.They don't believe there is any real danger in the world except that which America brings upon itself through our clumsy and misguided foreign policy.It is not their patriotism — it is their judgment that has been so sorely lacking. They claimed Carter's pacifism would lead to peace.They were wrong.They claimed Reagan's defense buildup would lead to war.They were wrong.And, no pair has been more wrong, more loudly, more often than the two Senators from Massachusetts, Ted Kennedy and John Kerry.Together, Kennedy/Kerry have opposed the very weapons system that won the Cold War and that is now winning the War on Terror.Listing all the weapon systems that Senator Kerry tried his best to shut down sounds like an auctioneer selling off our national security but Americans need to know the facts.The B-1 bomber, that Senator Kerry opposed, dropped 40 percent of the bombs in the first six months of Operation Enduring Freedom. The B-2 bomber, that Senator Kerry opposed, delivered air strikes against the Taliban in Afghanistan and Hussein's command post in Iraq.The F-14A Tomcats, that Senator Kerry opposed, shot down Khadifi's Libyan MIGs over the Gulf of Sidra. The modernized F-14D, that Senator Kerry opposed, delivered missile strikes against Tora Bora. The Apache helicopter, that Senator Kerry opposed, took out those Republican Guard tanks in Kuwait in the Gulf War. The F-15 Eagles, that Senator Kerry opposed, flew cover over our Nation's Capital and this very city after 9/11.I could go on and on and on: against the Patriot Missile that shot down Saddam Hussein's scud missiles over Israel; against the Aegis air-defense cruiser; against the Strategic Defense Initiative; against the Trident missile; against, against, against.This is the man who wants to be the Commander in Chief of our U.S. Armed Forces?U.S. forces armed with what? Spitballs?Twenty years of votes can tell you much more about a man than twenty weeks of campaign rhetoric.Campaign talk tells people who you want them to think you are. How you vote tells people who you really are deep inside.Senator Kerry has made it clear that he would use military force only if approved by the United Nations.Kerry would let Paris decide when America needs defending.I want Bush to decide.John Kerry, who says he doesn't like outsourcing, wants to outsource our national security.That's the most dangerous outsourcing of all. This politician wants to be leader of the free world.Free for how long?For more than 20 years, on every one of the great issues of freedom and security, John Kerry has been more wrong, more weak and more wobbly than any other national figure.As a war protester, Kerry blamed our military.As a Senator, he voted to weaken our military. And nothing shows that more sadly and more clearly than his vote this year to deny protective armor for our troops in harms way, far away.George Bush understands that we need new strategies to meet new threats.John Kerry wants to re-fight yesterday's war. George Bush believes we have to fight today's war and be ready for tomorrow's challenges. George Bush is committed to providing the kind of forces it takes to root out terrorists.No matter what spider hole they may hide in or what rock they crawl under.George Bush wants to grab terrorists by the throat and not let them go to get a better grip.From John Kerry, they get a "yes-no-maybe" bowl of mush that can only encourage our enemies and confuse our friends.I first got to know George Bush when we served as governors together. I admire this man. I am moved by the respect he shows the first lady, his unabashed love for his parents and his daughters, and the fact that he is unashamed of his belief that God is not indifferent to America.I can identify with someone who has lived that line in "Amazing Grace," "Was blind, but now I see," and I like the fact that he's the same man on Saturday night that he is on Sunday morning.He is not a slick talker but he is a straight shooter and, where I come from, deeds mean a lot more than words.I have knocked on the door of this man's soul and found someone home, a God-fearing man with a good heart and a spine of tempered steel.The man I trust to protect my most precious possession: my family.This election will change forever the course of history, and that's not any history. It's our family's history.The only question is how. The answer lies with each of us. And, like many generations before us, we've got some hard choosing to do.Right now the world just cannot afford an indecisive America. Fainthearted self-indulgence will put at risk all we care about in this world.In this hour of danger our President has had the courage to stand up. And this Democrat is proud to stand up with him.Thank you.God Bless this great country and God Bless George W. Bush.

I snarffed this from Ayn Clouter (url on side bar)

And I add that againg I have never found shelter in a blade of grass.

Never mind that the polls are being as consistent as Kerry's stand on the war. French columnist Pascal Riché has found that even cab drivers are convinced JFK is a flip-flopper:
Je suis présentement à l'aéroport de Boston (quelle merveille le wifi). Aujourd'hui, un chauffeur de taxi barbu, avec un fort accent polonais, m'a bien fait rire. J'étais avec le photographe Jean-Christian Bourcart, entre deux interviews. On lui donne l'adresse, à Cambridge. "Ah oui, dit-il sans hésiter, c'est un ancien musée germanique transformé en centre d'études européennes". Il nous dit: "Vous êtes journalistes?" (Dieu sait comment il a deviné). On acquiesce. "Quel media?" Libération, un journal français. "Ah, Libération! C'est plutôt à gauche, non?" Oui, enfin, un peu moins qu'avant quand même. "Sartre l'a fondé, non? Le problème de Sartre, c'est qu'il a mal lu Heidegger" (c'est là que j'ai explosé de rire). De fil en aiguille, on parle de Descartes: "il a une vision un peu trop mécaniste de l'homme", assure le taxi. Puisque nous sommes tombés sur un chauffeur omniscient, nous lui demandons qui va gagner l'élection: "Bush, sans l'ombre d'un doute. Kerry, il n'a pas su montrer ce qu'il voulait".

Ok this one was way too good to pass up

To Get a Promotion, Pass Gas at Work

On the surface, it would seem that passing gas at work would brand you as a no-good, impolite imbecile. Turns out, that's just wrong. If you want to move up in the corporate world, here are two pieces of advice: Don't pack your lunch and do pass gas in the copy room.

Wireless Flash reports that this is the advice from authors Brad Embree and Jared Shapiro, who wrote the book, "Going Corporate: Moving Up Without Screwing Up." And amazingly, it's getting rave reviews from bosses and other corporate types. Playing the corporate game is all about your image. Bringing your lunch to work says you're a penny pincher. If you eat out, you'll project the image of being someone who is important. (Do it too much, and you'll project an image of someone who is overweight.)

And about passing gas: It's just fine to "let one fly" at work since it supposedly shows a lot about who you are and who you want to be. Embree suggests the best place for this particular activity is in the copy room since it is usually well ventilated and will minimize your trail, so to speak.

Knowing such vital tidbits as this is all part of the unwritten business etiquette that will enhance what the authors call your promotion potential. (It may also help if your boss has a somewhat diminished sense of smell.) "Going Corporate" is ideal for the young 20-something crowd; it's irreverent enough to keep them interested and practical enough that bosses will endorse it. Read this book and you'll know what to wear on casual Fridays without having to ask.

Here is some more HA HA for ya's

Why It's OK to Be Drunk on Jury Duty The integrity of the jury system may be the backbone of American justice, but it's apparently acceptable in New York City for a juror to be drunk on alcohol or high on marijuana or cocaine. Reuters reports that a New York judge said just that when she refused to set aside the verdict on a retired city firefighter who was convicted of stealing souvenirs from Ground Zero.

Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Ellen Coin cited a 1987 Supreme Court ruling which stated that it is not considered an "outside influence" on jurors if they consume alcohol, smoke marijuana, snort cocaine, or fall asleep while on jury duty. That means the guilty verdict of petty larceny against Samuel Brandon, 61, stands even though a juror told Brandon he had been drinking during the deliberations. Brandon was accused of stealing personal items from the ruins of the World Trade Center. After learning about the drunk juror, he sought a new trial.
Although the judge did say that being drunk on jury duty was "reprehensible," she acknowledged there was little she could do about it given the Supreme Court ruling. "However severe their effect and improper their use, drugs or alcohol voluntarily ingested by a juror seem no more an 'outside influence' than a virus, poorly prepared food, or lack of sleep," the Supreme Court said in its decision. Brandon faces up to one year in jail at his Sept. 27 sentencing, notes Reuters.

And also this is why I do not do any banking via the internet.

You Won't Believe Who's on Fed Payroll Your tax dollars at work: Hackers are on the federal government's payroll. But this is a good thing! Their goal each workday is simple: Not to wreak havoc, but rather to boost the security of America's pipelines, railroads, utilities and other infrastructure as part of a project backed by the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory, reports Reuters. The bad guys are now the good guys who are trying to protect us from cyber-terrorism.
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, the program employs expert hackers who test computing vulnerabilities from a new cyber-security center that is spread across 890 square miles in a remote area of eastern Idaho. "I don't think people have an understanding of what could be the impact of cyber attacks," Paul Kearns, director of INEEL, told Reuters. "They don't understand the threat."
Federal security officials do understand the threat and have warned that we are not prepared. "I am confident that there is no system connected to the Internet, either by modem or fixed connection, that can't be hacked into," Laurin Dodd, who oversees INEEL's national security programs, told Reuters. He thinks the only computer system that would be safe is one that is isolated from the outside, such as the one used by the CIA. If a system is accessible via the Internet, then it is susceptible to sabotage. The hacker team only tests within an internal infrastructure unless a company hires them to try to hack into their system to test their cyber-defenses. And this should make you sleep easier: None of the hackers has a criminal record, and all have passed very strict security clearances.

Here is a batch of interesting articles with the factsfrom

Our current unemployment rate -- 5.4 percent -- is one of the lowest in the world and one of the lowest in our own history.

Jobs and snow jobs: Part IIThomas Sowell

Among the eyewitnesses who say Kerry came under no enemy fire on Dec. 2, 1968, is John Kerry himself. According to Douglas Brinkley's book, "Tour of Duty," Kerry wrote in his diary nine days later, on Dec. 11, 1968: "We hadn't been shot at yet." His campaign is still trying to figure out how to claim that Kerry couldn't have known this because he wasn't even on his own swiftboat at the time. The unsubstantiated heroism of Hanoi John

Ann Coulter

Well, my 1960s compeers, we are all getting on in years and in artery blockage. The knees creak. The skin sags. Cosmetic ministrations and hair coloring can deceive the public but not the physiology. The 1960s generation celebrated youth more noisily and enduringly than any other generation in American history, and now its Boy President is recovering from quadruple bypass surgery. I wish him well, but as he heads off into old age I would be remiss if I did not note that he and his champions of eternal youth have for years denied old age its achievements, and now they will be living out an old age that they themselves have created -- an old age bereft of the respect old age once commanded. No one is likely to call Bill Clinton a wise old man. No one will note his dignity or sage advice. The 60's generation

Well you asked me to get back in it so here I am

An article I copied in toto from including links because I felt this was central to one of the precepts that I have been saying that homosexuality was a choice not a disability.

Professor's Video Proves Homosexuals Can ChangeInterviews with former homosexuals and lesbians contradict American Psychological Association.By ED VITAGLIANO(Agape Press) While organizations like the American Psychological Association (APA) are throwing their considerable weight behind the homosexual movement, a handful of notable members of the mental health field are countering with the truth about sexual orientation.One of those professionals is Dr. Warren Throckmorton, director of college counseling and an associate professor of psychology at Grove City College, a private Christian college in Pennsylvania. His research on the possibility of changing sexual orientation was published in the June 2002 issue of Professional Psychology: Research and Practice, an official publication of the APA.The subject of changing sexual orientation is an issue Throckmorton emphasizes in his counseling and teaching. "I've seen people change, people I've interviewed and even my own clients," Throckmorton told AFA Journal. "I remember one of my clients, who is no longer gay, said to me, 'Tell them that I exist.' "And that's exactly what Throckmorton has been doing. He recently released a new video, I Do Exist!, which tells the stories of five ex-homosexuals who now boldly proclaim that people can change.I Do Exist! opens with "man-on-the-street" interviews, as average Americans answer the question, "Can homosexuals change?" Former "gay" man Noe Gutierrez, Jr., then begins explaining how he began the process of change. Gutierrez is so sincere and transparent that he draws the viewer into his story.Also featured are the testimonies of former lesbians Sarah Lipp, Joann Highley, and Cheryl Quinlan, as well as former homosexual Greg Quinlan. All present a message of hope that will encourage those struggling with same-sex attractions.Supplementing the ex-gay testimonies are interviews with Throckmorton himself, Dr. Mark Yarhouse of the Regent University Department of Psychology, and Dr. Robert Spitzer, professor of psychiatry at Columbia University.In 1973, Spitzer was one of the men who was instrumental in getting the American Psychiatric Association to officially remove homosexuality from its catalog of mental illnesses. He has since come to the conclusion that some homosexuals can change their sexual orientation, and last year released the results of a study to that effect.Both the American Psychological Association and the American Psychiatric Association -- along with almost every other major mental health organization -- have been forcefully promoting the homosexual agenda in recent decades.Throckmorton said it isn't science that is driving that promotion. "It's just old-fashioned politics. All of these professional [mental health] organizations have official gay and lesbian groups within them that have an agenda," he said. "They believe that homosexuality is simply another variant of human sexuality, and they have a vested interest in making sure the organization keeps promoting that view."A case in point, he said, was when the American Psychological Association adopted a resolution at its annual convention in July, advocating the legalization of same-sex marriage. The resolution was steeped in scientific language.However, Throckmorton said, the members of the committee that put forth the resolution were all homosexuals. He said, "How objective could [the committee] be? There was almost no discussion [of opposing viewpoints]. The council representatives simply voted, and it was all done internally."He said the resolution was "a political consensus, not a scientific consensus."Such actions seem to make Throckmorton even more determined to publicize a message of hope. "I feel these [ex-gay] folks are marginalized," he said. "They are afraid to talk in the church because they don't want to be viewed as gay, and they don't want to talk to people in the mental health profession because they won't be believed."I Do Exist! is a powerful way to get out the message that homosexuals can change. It is compelling and informative, and helps to explain the process by which some people come to experience same-sex attractions, act on those attractions, and enter the homosexual lifestyle.The film also makes recommendations concerning the role of church and schools in providing help to those who are experiencing same-sex attractions but do not want to take on a "gay" identity.The video could be a great tool in helping religious leaders, counselors and church members understand the complexities surrounding this controversial issue. This is especially needful because, Throckmorton said, the homosexual lifestyle is prominently displayed in our culture."There is an incessant drumbeat of emphasis on sexuality in our culture. More and more people are defining themselves in terms of sexuality," he said. "And kids are labeling themselves as gay or lesbian earlier in life than ever before."Throckmorton has also produced a CD entitled The Truth Comes Out, which contains testimonies from ex-homosexuals, information about sexual orientation from Throckmorton, and some selections of contemporary Christian music."There are already a lot of books on the market about these issues, and so we thought there was a need for an alternative media approach to help parents, pastors, and teachers who are dealing with young people who were questioning their sexual feelings," he said."And the CD and DVD were accessible to kids," he added, who might not read a book but who might listen to a CD or watch a DVD.

The sound of chainsaws has finally dwindled. For the last 24 hours you could here the sound of chainsaws all over the city as people cleaned up after the storm. And now everyone is awaiting the next storm the third one projected to hit Florida this year. It has been 40 years since 3 major Hurricanes hit that state but I remind everyone that it is not unprecedented. I wish that people would remember that to sit and say I am tired of the battle well Move. For God sake crap happens.

I'm scared that the other locust tree will fall on my meager home if we get another high end tropical storm but you know what? If it does I'll fix it up and carry on. What else in the history of mankind have we done. If you nincompoops want to wine about the weather you could move to Iraq or how about the north pole better yet the south pole. Now buck up and get on with it or get out. Do me a favor and don't move to my city-we hate waa-iners here. We would rather work our selves to death than waa-ine about it. This is a city of solutions not waa-iners.

What was I saying about inconvenienced by a monster tropical storm....Oh yeah.

Well tropical storm Francis just nailed middle Georgia. About 9:30 pm last night trees started coming down in winds that must have gusted to 60-65 miles an hour. My wife and I went to bed at about 10 o'clock with the wind rocking this old trailer and I could not rest. I was resting my hand on the wall and could feel it bend with the wind. At about 12 I heard a strange kind of thumping,bume bume. Not wanting to get up I layed there listening to the storm and the rat-a-tat of rain being driven off of the aluminum siding. Finally at 12:30 am to restless to stay in bed, I got up, and pulled the cover off of the window. With all of my security lights on I looking out of the window into an eerie night yet something was wrong. I looked up into the sky and could see where I should not be able to. "HEY", I said out loud," We've got a tree down". It had fallen across the road and was blocking the rest of the park. My wife jumped out of bed and we started going around the house looking out the windows. Again I said uh-oh. I saw oak leaves and brancehs around my car. Oh-boy, it's 14 year old Toyota with 177 thousand miles on the odometer and I only had liability on it. The car still runs good and I would be hard pressed to replace it. Well bless it the limbs missed my car. Whew. My wife and I stayed up for a little while longer marveling at the storm and how God had protects us .

21,000 people lost their electricity in the county. Our power co. flint is kicking butt and we are down to 6000. 72000 in Macon and Bibb county and over 400,000 in Georgia. This was one giant long winded momma. Flash flooding, the rescues (6 people rappled back across a raging stream that the day before they walked across) schools out, fire trucks screaming around all night. It was 105 miles an hour at land fall in Florida and still gusting up to 65 after crossing the peninsula and clawing it's way up the pan handle and into the state. Awesome.

I have been in some storms before especially up in northern Wisconsin in the winter. The coldest I ever saw was 60 below with 100 below windchill. The highest winds in thunderstorms coming off of the plains and out over lake Superior often reached 100 mph briefly, but to be caught in a tropical storm (only a tropical storm) that rages on for hours was frightening and exhilerating. I don't think I can imagine what it would be like to have been at the point of land fall. It must be a completely life changing experience.

We are now getting the northeastern edge of tropical storm Francis here in middle Georgia, in fact it started raining about 1:30 to 2:am this morning. There is nothing I have experienced quite like an incoming tropical storm. The incredible damage that one of these storms not withstanding; the air is fresh and clear the rain pure, you can almost feel the earth drinking up and cleansing itself.

I am aware of the dire interruption in mens lives but we as men can plan for it. To people that wish that there were no Hurricanes should consider that without them some of the southeast and south would be dry-even desert. They are life to us. So I have a recommendation to the people who live on the coast. Concrete houses. I wouldn't take away the joy of living on the beaches for any reason but if you afford the house you should afford the extra expense of hardening your homes to withstand the wind and the flooding. Please.

One other item I want to bring up is that these storms remind men that God is in control. It is one of those things that we cannot regulate. One of the stressors that literally strips away all other cares and reminds us what is important. Our personal friendship and relationship with the Patriarch of our family. God.

It is indeed unfortunate that we have to have these awesome natural events like tornadoes and earthquakes or volcanoes or in the future a meteor to make us focus on what is important.

On the chance that anyone would think that I have not had my own life inconvenienced by one of these meteorological giants; I have.

In 1994, a storm named Andrew, after devastating the pan-handle of Florida became occluded over central Georgia and wandered around between Macon and Atlanta for 3 days dropping 8 inches in Warner Robins and up to 24 inches in other places flooding nearly every city and cutting every road. My new home town became literally an island. No one could get in and no one out, no air traffic-no helicopters.

At that time I lived in an apartment complex on the first floor by a man made lake. It had for two weeks prior to this storm, rained constantly and the ground was already saturated. We watched with trepidation the news as up stream of us dam after dam burst and sent torrents of water our direction . After two days I began to marvel that our lake appeared to be holding it's own, that is until 9 am. I noticed that the lake had come up about 1 foot. I made up my mind to check it more frequently and 20 minutes later it had risen 4 more feet and I sounded the alarm to my children; Jez and Jannell, to grab a suitcase and pack some clothes, that we were getting out of there. I called work and told them that I would be late that, I was moving my kids to higher ground. I called my wife Michele and her grandmother and made arrangements to stay there temporarily. I then went on to work and gathered up all the 5 gallon pales I could find, returned to my apartment and put all of our belongings that I could up; in a vain effort I thought, that they might be spared. I returned to work and hoped. That evening I acquired a comp. Room from work and moved my family into it . My wife got worried about our pets and insisted that we make a trip out to the apartment to get our pets and some more clothing. I was reluctant; I figured that by now the lake had taken our home. We drove out but could not get all the way there. A part of the runoff system crossed the drive and the road was completely inundated by a tremendous wash. A police officer was stationed there and would not let us drive across. My wife was frantic for the pets. So we walked across with me in the lead and each of us holding the hands of the one behind us. The water was calf deep pushing against us as I tested the road inch by inch in a terrible fear that it was washed out. To my surprise it was not and we were across safely. When we reached our building the water was now at the slab it was built on and only about 2 inches from going over. The rains kept coming. We hurriedly gathered up what we could in garbage bags locked the door behind us and took off reaching once again the torrent of water cascading down the hill and across the road. Again I lead us across feeling my way as we went. Again by God the road was not washed out. But the Law officer made it plain over his loud speaker that there would be no more crossing the road because it was too dangerous.

We slept that night and arrose the next day, still no let up in the rain, still wondering if we had a home or if it was flooded. I couldn't help my curiosity and drove down to the complex to see if I could find out anything, at 8 am the water had miraculously not enter our place. I was praying that the dam would break so the water in the lake would go down, not thinking of course that the people down stream would get flooded. Finally, at 10 am we heard the news on the radio that the small dam that held back our lake had burst and they were sending warnings down stream to get out of the way of a new rush of water. We returned home to find that by the blessings of God the water had not entered our house. Others at the complex were not so fortunate. They had been flooded out and lost pretty much everything.

Yet in those moments I remember telling my boss that I liked the storm because it reminds people that there is always something bigger than themselves and that we should always be mindful of, has something else in store for us than our meager minds can conceive.

I am thankful for the storm that keeps my feet grounded in truth and recogs in the evil that they are not in control but something greater than they. The storms does terrible damage to our personal possesions but leaves us with a renewed spirit. A new start. A new spirit of giving and helping each other. A new compassion for others. A better understanding of ourselves and our God that we should not place our lives in our personal possesions or our personal pleasure but in the hands of God. A new understanding that God spares us but the things we have will be left behind forever.

We need the storm not only for the rain but for our souls as well.

Healthy stuff

Eat This. It May Stop Alzheimer's Cold A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which is found in abundance in soy, salmon, halibut, and other cold-water fish, appears to offer significant protection against Alzheimer's disease, Reuters reports of new research from the University of California Los Angeles School of Medicine. The ingredient that seems to protect the brain against memory loss and cell damage caused by Alzheimer's is one particular omega-3 fatty acid called DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid. Lead study author Greg Cole said DHA "dramatically reduces the impact of an Alzheimer's gene."
As so often happens in science, this finding was accidental. The researchers, who were studying Alzheimer's in mice, were looking for something else but noticed that the mice whose diet was rich in soy and rich did not have the expected memory loss or brain damage. Reuters reports that notably, the synapses, the connections between brain cells, were not as damaged as would be expected. "Because earlier studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids may prevent Alzheimer's disease, we realized that the mice's diet could be countering the very thing we were trying to accomplish--showing the progression of the Alzheimer's-related brain damage," said researcher Sally Frautschy in a prepared statement.
The researchers tested the DHA theory by removing fish and soy from the mouse diet. Instead, they fed them safflower oil, which is low in omega-3 and rich in another fatty acid called omega-6, which does not include DHA, reports Reuters. "We found high amounts of synaptic damage in the brains of the Alzheimer's-diseased mice that ate the DHA-depleted diet," Frautschy explained. "These changes closely resembled those we see in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease." Cole said that after adjusting for all possible variables, DHA was the only factor that protected the mice from synaptic damage and memory loss that should have occurred from their Alzheimer's genes. "We concluded that the DHA-enriched diet was holding their genetic disease at bay," said Cole. The study findings were published in the journal Neuron.

Zell Miller at the Republican National Convention

Holy, Holy, Holy!

Quote concerning Kerry's record on voting for defense. "What are we going to defend ourselves with? Spitballs?"

My wife had to shush me I was laughing so loud. Way to go Zell. That gets the rare Awsome from me and a hearty clap on the back of appreciation.

I have been waiting forever for a politician to say it out loud and you didn't just say it you shouted it at the top of your lungs from the roof.

God Bless and if you ever descide to run for President well we would vote for ya. I hate to say that considering my Republican affiliation. But you are a man whom I would fight to the death for knowing it would not be in vain.

Yup-I want in on that.

Secretary of Agriculture
Washington DC
My friend, Mort Wilson, over at Milton, KS, received a check the other
day for $1000.00 from the government for not raising hogs. So, I want to go
into the "not raising hogs" business.
What I want to know is, in your opinion, what is the best type of farm not
to raise hogs on, and what is the best breed of hogs not to raise? I want to
be sure that I approach this endeavor in keeping with all government
policies. I would prefer not to raise Razorbacks, but if that is not a good
breed not to raise, then I can just as easily not raise Yorkshires or
As I see it, the hardest part of this program will be in keeping an accurate
inventory of how many hogs I haven't raised.
My friend, Mort, is very excited about the future of this business. He has
been rainsing hogs for 40 years, and the most he ever made was $422.00 in
1970, until this year when he got your check for $1000.00 for not raising
If I get $1000.00 for not raising 50 hogs, will I get $2000.00 for not
raising 100 hogs? I plan to operate on a small scale at first, holding
myself down to about 4,000 "not raised hogs", which will give me me
$80,000.00 income the first year. Then I can afford an airplane.
Now, another thing, these hogs I will not raise will not eat 100,000
bushels of corn and wheat.I understand that you also pay farmers for not
raising corn and wheat. Will I qualify for payments for not raising corn
and wheat not to feed the 4000 hogs I am not going to raise?
I want to get started not feeding as soon as possible as this seems to be a
good time of year to not raise hogs and grain. I am also considering the
"not milking cows" business, so please send me any information on that also.
In view of these circumstances, I understand that the governement will
consider me totally unemployed, so I plan to file for unemployment and food
stamps. Be assured that you will have my vote in the coming elections.

P. S. Would you please notify me when you plan to distibute more cheese?

Should that is.

Why the Boss Wants You to Call in Sick Sick employees should take to their beds and stay away from their desks. And if their bosses have any sense, they'll encourage them to remain home until they are well. Why? Each worker who comes in to the office sick costs the employer an average of $255 each per year, reports The Associated Press of a new study by Cornell University labor researchers. That totals some $180 billion in lost productivity every year.
Sick employees are not productive employees. They have difficulty concentrating, they work more slowly, and they often have to repeat tasks. In addition, they can get their co-workers sick, but the price tag of bringing down the rest of the office was not counted in this study, which examined the effect of colds, the flu, headaches, allergies, arthritis, heart disease, asthma, and cancer.
There's a word for this: "presenteeism." You're there, but you're not functioning well. "The study doesn't mean people should stay home sick at every sniffle," Ron Goetzel, director of Cornell's Institute for Health and Productivity Studies in Washington, D.C., told Reuters. "It says this is a very large category of expenses, even exceeding the costs of absenteeism and medical and disability benefits, and part of the problem is that employers have not yet fully recognized the financial impact it can have on their business.This is the first study to count the cost of on-the-job productivity losses from common health problems to an employer's total health-related expenses. On average, that adds up to about 61 percent of an employee's total medical and lost-productivity costs. The research findings were published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

Who are we?

I don't think that a lot of Christians really understand exactly what we have done when we accepted Jesus as our Savior.

We became the children of God which means we became family. I wonder if most people on earth would quit loving thier earthly dad just because he made a boo-boo. I don't think so, so why would we not understand that to Love our Father in Heaven (who is the only true good and perfect) unconditionally is the most improtant thing we could ever do on earth? Loving God for who he is; Our Father, not what he can do which is everything.

The most unpleasant thing to say in the English language. Doesn't bother me but it botheres the crap out of a lot of other. Hence the reason they don't get along with me. But I am learning to ignore them.

No. I am going to use the right washer for the sink and I am not going to replace the whole water supply when it is not a problem. So you can run off like a spoiled rotten child and pout. Why don't y'all just shoot yourselves because I will tell the truth and I will endeavor to do the job right no matter what stupid ideas y'all come up with.

No! I will not be you, I will be me. No I will not be a good ol boy . You good ol boys have probably got more people killed than Carters got liver pills. So No! Go away!

I just had the most unusual message left on our answering machine. The woman asked if I did miracles?

I have witnessed miracles of men changing and a nation shifting course to the better and have laid my hands on people and watched their health improve. Have prayed for people who had cancer and within a week heard back that the cancer was completely gone. Disappeared.
I have seen the miracle of a baby that I was given no hope of living and then told to lay my hand on and bless in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost after which a few minutes later I told the Dr. To do as he thought best and that I had the faith that he would be fine. Not only did live but lives and does the things that young men do (sports ect.). I have stood in an auditorium while another prayed for healing of those in the audience to be healed and believed in faith that God would do so and had my lower back be healed. (our family has a congenital lower back problem and mine was beginning to flare up).

Have I ever had the opportunity to heal a withered mans hand? No, but if it be God's will that a day should present one to me I believe that God would heal them.

The one thing that people must remember concerning miracles of any kind are that it is their own faith in God create them . Not mine. That God can heal them is a fact but if an individual does not have the faith to be healed by God they will not be healed. Also consider if you are saved by Jesus and that God is in control that our worries concerning life and death are over. That God is now in control of our life and we serve and live at his pleasure not our own. We will not live one second beyond what is required of us nor one second short. We can rest and trust that God will take care of us in his timing not ours.

That in our lives we will be who we are and experience all that we experience both the good and the evil the gains and the losses as individuals before God as he sees fit not necessarily what we think is right, but that is the way it is.

The voice of God

This is my comment to those people that hear a voice in their head they credit as God's.


The apostle Peter warns us to test the spirits whether they be of God or not and that no spirit that is not of God can admit that Jesus is The Messiah unless they are of God.

Exo 19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because, the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

When God makes his presence known to men it becomes obvious, things begin to shake, quake, lite up or burn.

Exo 3:2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst, of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

1Ki 19:11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:

Luk 2:9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

Mat 28:2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

Joh 12:28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. Joh 12:29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. Joh 12:30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.

Though God makes his presence known to men in other ways by his spirit that works in us and about us using circumstance and by prayer fulfilling our prescient prayers, and prescient words, We have not necessarily heard the direct voice of God because something that came to us in a secret voice came true.

I will not discount that everything that men consider voices external to themselves yet secret to others as not messengers but do not count that these voices are messengers of the most high God. The most high god would send messengers to have us do good unto men not evil. To deliver messages of repentance and warnings of destruction both small and great for not repenting, that is to change ones mind concerning doing evil.

Also remember that in the end all things will have begun and ended with God hence the reason that Jesus told John in the vision of revelations to let them that are righteous be righteous still and those that are evil let them be evil still. That also does not relinquish Jesus command to preach repentance, nor to the old testament writings concerning our responsibility to warn the wicked to repent of their ways and sin no more lest they die in thier sin and then thier blood would be required of us.

I suppose that is irritating to people when I install a laugh like that in my blog or comments. I figure that people deserve a little explanation.

I am not laughing like that because I particularly think what I said was funny(some times I do) but because I am laughing at them. Mocking is the word. PBAB you know. I have been mocked a pretty good bit over the years and I get a little moses law-eye for an eye.

Most of my pay back has been in the area of watching what I say come true knowing the bu-bu-bu-bu-but stuttering of peoples astonishment. Now that I think is funny, HAHAHAHAHA!

Crosswalk - Religion Today Feature: Judge Orders Bible Removed From Monument at Texas Courthouse, August 12, 2004

Today Feature Story a close-up look at the people, issues and events making news Orders Bible Removed From Monument at Texas CourthouseRandy HallEditor( - A federal judge ruled Tuesday that a Bible must be takenout of a monument outside a courthouse in Houston, Texas, within 10 daysbecause the display violates the constitutional separation of church andstate.U.S. District Judge Sim Lake ordered that Harris County officials mustremove a King James Version Bible from a lighted glass display case in afour-foot-high stone monument outside the civil courts building, as wellas pay $41,000 in court costs and attorney fees.In his ruling, Lake stated that the county should exercise religiousneutrality and "not be seen as endorsing Christianity.

My Question is why haven't these same Judges ordered the Supreme Court to take the sculpture of Moses holding the Ten Comandments off of there building and Congress to stop starting every session with prayer and the Supreme court from opening with prayer and other various exhibitions of Christianity, HUH?

The Anti-christ

Will not be a Catholic.

He will be a Jew, a tracable member of the Levite Tribe, and of the House of King David.
Why you might ask. Because the Jews will not suffer anyone else to stand between the pillars of the temple.

So any talk left of saying that the Catholic church will be the house of the Anti Christ is a waste of time, speculative and simply will not be. The Catholics inspite of the thier terrible history and in my opinion having some incredibly wrong ways of doing things are still Christians endevoring to abide in the vine of Jesus Christ. Not my place to figure out what God had in mind concerning them but is my place to tell them how to better themselves as I find it in the scripture.

Pro-Family Leaders Hail Missouri Marriage Amendment's Passage
By Jenni ParkerAugust 5, 2004

(AgapePress) - Marriage defenders are commending pro-family Missourians who voted more than two-to-one on August 3 in favor of a state constitutional amendment to protect the sacred institution of marriage, defining it as the union of one man and one woman. The big win in Missouri is part of a trend and offers further proof that an overwhelming majority of Americans favors the biblical view of marriage.
Gary Bauer
Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families called the vote "a crushing defeat to the same-sex 'marriage' crowd." He notes that voter turnout was extremely high for an August election, which proves that the win was "no fluke," despite the fact that the same-sex marriage proponents had hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend on promoting their agenda, while the traditional marriage crowd had only "a shoestring budget."
The conservative spokesman also called attention to the fact that, just this week, Ohio and North Dakota appear to have collected enough signatures to put this issue on the ballot in those states. "That means that in November, as many as a dozen states will vote up or down on same-sex 'marriage,' Bauer stated, adding, "I believe we will be out-spent and out-advertised in every one of those states and nonetheless, we will win!"
Bauer feels the Missouri vote showed, once again, what he and other pro-family leaders have been contending for some time: "The American people don't want same-sex 'marriage' -- period," he says.
Dr. James Dobson, founder and chairman of Focus on the Family Action, agrees. He also issued a response to Missouri's passage of the constitutional marriage amendment, noting that the citizens' nearly 71 percent support for the measure made the will of the people crystal clear. In that statement, he commented, "The lopsided results of this election prove, once again, the mind of everyday Americans on the crucial issue of how marriage should be defined for future generations."
The pro-family ministry spokesman noted how politicians and the media often portray the U.S. as a nation closely divided, "split right down the middle" on several hot-button social issues. Yet, he pointed out, "nearly three-fourths of Missourians say they want marriage to continue to mean what it's meant for thousands of years."
Is Missouri a Sign of Things to Come?Dobson observes that every time the people have been asked this question -- every time a state constitutional marriage amendment has been put on the ballot for the people to vote on -- their answer has been the same. And his assertion is statistically verifiable: in fact, each of the states that has enacted a constitutional marriage amendment had its citizens decisively supporting the measure by nearly the same margins.
In 1998, the people of Hawaii voted 69.2% to 28.6% in favor of an amendment that reserved the right of the legislature, not the judiciary, to define marriage. That same year, Alaska's citizens voted 68.11% to 31.89% to enact a constitutional amendment defining marriage. And in 2000, Nebraska's citizens voted in such an amendment, 70.1% to 29.9%. Nevada followed in 2002, supporting the constitutional amendment 67.1% to 32.7%; and, of course, Missouri has now joined this trend, voting 70.7% to 29.3% in favor of the Missouri Marriage Amendment.
Focus on the Family Action's founder considers it particularly significant that Missouri is the first state to constitutionally protect marriage since the Massachusetts Supreme Court decision last year that legalized same-sex marriage in that state. He notes that Missouri has been nicknamed "the bellwether state," for its seeming political prescience (having failed only once in the last century to vote for the winner in the presidential race) and hopes that, perhaps, America's bellwether is forecasting a fair wind in the fight to defend marriage.
As many as a dozen other states will be considering constitutional marriage amendments between now and November. Among them are Louisiana, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Utah, Montana, and Oregon. At press time, Ohio was on the brink of becoming the 13th state that could vote on the issue this fall.
Dobson says his group firmly believes the August 3 vote in Missouri was "just the start of a coast-to-coast movement of the people, who are fed up with judicial tyrants arrogantly making law from the bench." And the pro-family leader says when the ballots in the other states are counted, "we are confident Missouri will again prove itself to be a bellwether."
Political ImplicationsGary Bauer believes the same-sex marriage issue, by itself, could decide the November presidential election in George Bush's favor. However, the conservative pundit says Bush's team must understand how vulnerable John Kerry is in this area and must have the confidence to take him on directly.
Bauer points out that Kerry has repeatedly taken what the conservative describes as a "two-faced position," claiming to be in favor of defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman, but voting against the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act and opposing the proposed Federal Marriage Amendment, which the Democrat candidate says would put "hate into our Constitution."
The issue is sure to come up during the presidential debates, and Bauer predicts Kerry will try to convince voters that he and Bush agree on the definition of marriage but not on the appropriateness of amending the Constitution of the United States." If George W. Bush is to prevail," Bauer says, he has to be bold and work to "show the stark differences between [himself] and Kerry."

The Boo Hoo's

Just because we get the waa's a little does't mean we need counseling or chemicals to feel better.  Here is a little survey from wmconnect about it.

Uh Oh. Americans Do This 3 Days a Month The average American is "sad, blue, or depressed" about three days a month, according to a survey of 166,000 adults in 38 states conducted between 1995 and 2000 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Ga., reports HealthDayNews. Not surprisingly, the more days each month that a person feels sad, the more likely he or she takes risks, including cigarette smoking, binge drinking, and not wearing seat belts.
 This is the first study ever to examine this type of sadness, which is more along the lines of a bad mood and not a diagnosable mental disorder. Women reported feeling blue 3.5 days a month, compared to men's 2.4 down days. Young adults felt the worst, with 18- and 19-year-olds saying they were sad an average of 3.6 days a month. Some are so depressed they are unable to work or go to school. Meanwhile, college graduates and those who reported an annual household income over $50,000 reported fewer episodes of depression. 

 Why are we so sad? The CDC blames it on lifestyle. "Feeling sad, blue, or depressed three days a month as a result of a stressful life situation is perfectly normal," lead researcher Rosemarie Kobau, a CDC public health analyst, told HealthDayNews. People who regularly exercise and do not smoke reported feeling blue fewer days each month. If you or someone you love feels sad or depressed for more than two weeks a month or loses interest in things that were once enjoyed, it's a sign of a bigger problem for which medical assistance should be sought. 

And to this article I ask What did they do 50 or 100 years ago? They lived with it and got over it.

Now how about the survey that says that Christian nations are the most prosperous nations!

Astounding Benefit of Believing in Hell

 Countries whose citizens believe in hell are not only less corrupt, but also more prosperous. That's the word from economists with the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, who were trying to figure out why some nations are so much richer than others. In addition to looking at productivity and investment factors, they examined some unconventional ideas to explain differences in national prosperity, reports Reuters. It turned out that belief in hell was very telling. 

 Drawing on the research from several outside economists, the St. Louis Fed studied 35 countries, including the United States, European nations, Japan, India, and Turkey and realized that religion was a powerful economic force. "In countries where large percentages of the population believe in hell, there seems to be less corruption and a higher standard of living," the St. Louis Fed wrote in its July quarterly review. In the United States, 71 percent of the population believes in hell. Perhaps it's no coincidence that it also has the world's highest per capita income.  Don't believe it? Look at Ireland. As Reuters says, the Irish have a healthy fear of a nether world with 53 percent of the population acknowledging hell's existence, and the country is not far behind the United States in terms of income.

It is my life

You cannot live my life, I must. You cannot see through my eyes, I must, and you cannot walk in my shoes, I must.  You cannot experience the things I do ; I must, and you all cannot be me; I must be me, in fact there will never be anyone else like me-ever. I would appreciate if if ya'll would stop trying to; it is seriously annoying. Or would you rather I cussed you out like I normally do.

When we accept Jesus as our Savior we are in essence commiting an act of rebellion from our old world sin self and of course our old sin self doesn't like it and fights back.  In some the old self wins but never the less Jesus says we are never lost to him because in that day he will claim us as purchased by his labor of love and sacrificed himself to do so. I  say we were payed for with blood.

Rom 6:20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

Once we were the slaves of uncleaness but rebelled to follow the path of right-eousness. I hyphinate that word to emphasize the word right in righteousness. For the world is unright we now dwell in right-ness and should not succumb to un-rightness. Fortunately for God's Grace we can repent that is to change our minds into the direction of rightness and must do so most daily.

A Capital Idea from Microsoft
by Larry Kudlow (archive)
July 23, 2004 Print Send

The stunning Microsoft decision to return more than $75 billion in cash to shareholders over the next four years is a smashing endorsement of the importance of President Bush’s pro-growth tax cuts. It is also a tremendous boon to investors, who will recycle this windfall into thousands of businesses both large and small -- a process that will significantly increase new jobs and grow the economy.
The Redmond, Washington-based software maker intends to pay a special $3 dividend for every investor share, for a total of $32 billion. Additionally, Microsoft will double its annual dividend and buy as much as $30 billion of its own stock over the next four years. If this new policy raises the Microsoft share price -- as is likely -- then the total package could be worth over $100 billion to shareholders.
Ironically, Microsoft’s corporate decision, induced by supply-side tax cuts, will also provide a huge Keynesian injection of fiscal stimulus to the economy, one that will more than offset the temporary effects of higher energy costs on consumer purchasing power. Even better, this sea-change policy will ripple through corporate America, forcing public companies to take similar actions.
When President Bush launched his initiative to equalize the tax rate on capital gains and investor dividends at 15 percent, there was a derisive outcry. Mainstream thinkers claimed the plan would only benefit the rich and have no impact on economic growth or jobs. Now that the economy -- led by business investment -- is growing at the fastest pace in two decades, the liberal establishment may wish to rethink its position.
Basically, the Bush plan significantly reduces Uncle Sam’s tax bite on profits and investment capital, leaving more in private hands for channeling into job-creating businesses. Remember, both dividends and capital gains are taxed at the corporate level, the individual level, and as capital gains. While this triple taxation of capital was not eliminated, the tax penalty was substantially lowered. As the capital-gains levy was cut from 20 percent to 15 percent on the marginal dollar, the dividend rate was reduced at the top income level from 40 percent to 15 percent. Meanwhile, personal income-tax rates were reduced across the board.
The charge that this policy would only benefit the rich is patently false. A recent Zogby poll shows that a substantial 59 percent majority of investors has a portfolio valued at less than $100,000. In addition, 28 percent of investors earn a modest $50,000 to $75,000 a year; another 19 percent earn $35,000 to $50,000; and 7 percent earn less than $35,000. According to Zogby, “The majority of investors earn less than $75,000. . . . This helps explain why old-fashioned [class-warfare] populism does not work in political campaigns nationwide.”
Steady dividend flows over time reduce equity risk and add enormous investor protection for retirement and other purposes. So what we’re seeing now is a return to the old-time religion of investing for both dividends and capital-gains returns.
According to the American Shareholders Association, investor wealth has increased $2.2 trillion, or 25 percent, since May 20, 2003, the start date of the Bush policy. So far this year, 161 of the S&P 500 companies have raised or initiated dividends. According to Standard & Poor’s, year-to-date dividend-paying issues in the S&P 500 index are averaging a 4.8 percent gain while non-dividend payers are down 3.5 percent.
Professor Jeremy Siegel of the University of Pennsylvania calculates that stock market returns including dividends have produced a 7 percent annual increase (adjusted for inflation) over long periods of time. But dividends fell behind in the last two decades because capital gains were taxed at a lower rate. Now, however, with a sharp reduction of the double-tax on dividends, dividend issuance is more efficient, with corporate payout policies more often based on the economics of a decision than just the tax consequence. Stock buybacks now have equal footing with dividend issuance. At lower tax rates, CEOs also have an incentive to pay out more cash to shareholders, rather than build internal empires or make unwise investment decisions.
In effect, the new law democratizes corporate governance. It puts real financial power into the hands of the shareholder constituency and removes it from the corpocratic front office.
Bush critics -- especially Kerry and Edwards, who wish to overturn the Bush policy -- fail to understand that reducing the double and triple taxation of investment capital is a business-funder, job-creator, and economic-grower. Simply put, capital is the best friend of both businesses and workers.
Bush’s policies make more capital available by reducing its after-tax cost and raising its post-tax investment return. When it is more profitable after-tax to invest, the mighty investor class will do so. And by supplying ever more capital to business and the economy, 90 million investors will expand America’s virtually unlimited potential to grow, create jobs, and prosper.

Old wisdom misses the mark

I have heard some say that you should take care of the details and the big stuff will take care of it self. I have also heard that you should take care of the big stuff and the little stuff will take care of itself.

I say you have to know when to take care of the big stuff and when to take care of the little stuff and then the picture will begin to develope.

Breaking them

Mar 2:22 And no man putteth new wine into an old bag: else the new wine doth burst the bag, and the wine is spilled, and the bag will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bags.

As you can see this verse is about old bags and what they think they know and believe. It seems that once old people get set in thier ways they gotta die with what they believe lest they get messed up in the head about what the truth really is. Blessed is the old one who still has a supple enough of a mind to know the truth when they hear it and thank God for learning it.

Distressing Side Effect of Many Diets

Uh oh. New research shows many people gain more weight than they lose when they go on a diet. Why? Blame it on yo-yo dieting and food cravings gone bad. The British Dietetic Association commissioned a survey of 4,000 people to determine the success of the average dieter.
Here are the surprising results, reported by the BBC News Online:--20 percent dieted for up to a month at a time, while 10 percent lasted a full eight weeks.--25 percent said they got bored with dieting and gave up.--Nearly 50 percent said they found dieting too hard and gave in to food cravings and temptation.--Only 20 percent ever reached their target weight.--33 percent said they ended up heavier than their original weight just weeks after their diet ended.--36 percent returned to their original weight.  --20 percent of those who gained weight soon after the diet ended, admitted to gaining more than 14 pounds.--66 percent put all the weight back on that they had lost on the diet with nearly half of those taking just a month to pile on the pounds.--Women were less successful in their dieting than men. Nearly 40 percent of women ended up being heavier than when they had started dieting, compared with 20 percent of men.--Most of the men and women said they were unhappy with their weight."This really confirms what we have been saying all along. All these fad diets don't work," dietician Amanda Wynne told the BBC News Online. "They are very temporary solutions to weight loss. People are putting the weight back on afterwards.
" What can you do to successfully lose weight? Wynne advises people to make small, achievable changes to their diet, such as less fat, smaller portion sizes, eating more fruits and vegetables, and exercising more.

I want to add my thoughts in support of the very last statement that also you must let yourselves be a little hungry for a time each day and that should allow your stomach to shrink a little. I also eat less per meal and eat more times during the day creating a very stable weight for myself. I also believe that pushing yourself to a training heart rate for as little as 5 mimutes a week will keep your body metabolism up. Mainly people need to realize we eat to survive. A little self hypnosis will help in that department. Meditatiing which I of course recommend the Bible. Doing stuff that keeps your mind off of food. When you get those hunger pangs find the high in them. Think about God in the pain. Ride the wave. It is amazing what God may reveal to in those moments. People think I have a high tolerance for pain but I do everything I can to avoid injury yet when I get injured or ill I find that wave that is there and float in it. Sounds Zen I guess but that is where I go. I don't cut the pain off necessarily because it is always there but I ride  it not fight it. I don't need no drugs I got God in the spirit. Makes a big difference.
