Isn’t it so sad that the media whores — sell-outs to the mega-corpses — can’t seem to recall the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution? Um, the one that says:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

In case you are interested in seeing just how out of touch our government is with its citizens, please read the following transcript or watch the video. John Pistole, administrator, Transportation Security Administration, speaks flawlessly like a politician, although he's not.
He completely ignores nearly every question Margaret asks!

I was nearly sick to my stomach last night as I watched the PBS News Hour and heard Massachusetts Senator John Kerry go on and on about how we needed to be in Afghanistan. Hm, something doesn't compute! Wasn't he a member of Vietnam Veteran's Against the War? Hm, according to Wikipedia he was even the spokesperson for them.

Recently I was informed by someone a "dying Frankenstein and a mad woman" were working hard to spread fear and terror across the countryside.
Then I realized what the person was talking about. Senator Dianne Feinstein's interest in maintaining the black market in marijuana, the destruction of the environment due to grow operations in national forests, the unrighteous (and expensive) imprisonment of people for using a plant product humanity has been using for thousands of years, and the mass murder of Mexicans.

In their ongoing effort to destroy our society and the societies of the world, retailers worked in cahoots with companies specializing in money (banks, credit card companies, pay day lenders, etc…) to tempt people to buy junky stuff they don't need made by near-slaves in foreign lands.

As unemployment handouts dry up for people, they are complaining about a lack of jobs. But don't these people realize that we needed to defy our own Declaration of Independence by make sure the military has more power than civilians? And not just here, but we need to force a militaristic attitude on all countries.

I, for one, can not say I'm interested in hearing of people's sexual exploits or interests. I don't ask for that information, but it is sometimes volunteered to me. For the most part, it is not exactly breaking news to me. But I do my best to follow the Golden Rule and treat others with the respect I would like to be treated with. Generally I just change the subject.

Isn't it sad, sick, ironic, and totally predictable* that those who think they are God's gift to humanity and claim to be "holding back" the forces of sin, are in fact the very ones who are promoting evil the most?!
* And even predicted in the Bible.
Here's the easiest passage to share with you. Just read all of Matthew 23, notice how Jesus rages against those who block the entrance to God's kingdom.

I know this is not exactly breaking news at the moment, not that it was when he uttered it, but it's been jabbing me every day since I heard it, so it's finally time to write it down.
On the PBS NewsHour's December 1, 2009 show, Arizona Senator John McCain (Republican) said something that made me cringe. You might still be able to download the segment. You can fast forward to 2:55 to hear the section I quote below.

Instead of letting better organizations than the war machine work to help foreign countries, instead of admitting the wars around the world don't do much more than fill the pockets of the rich and stomp God's green earth to death, instead of admitting that all these wars are a vain attempt to make certain plants extinct, it seems Back Obama recently confirmed our worst fears.
Summarizing what he said, we are just a nation of war. It was something like that. He believes in only war. We should just focus on war. It was something like that.

Here are some other possible headlines:
Some TV Preachers Work Hard to Strain Out One Gnat Then Swallow Camels Whole
Some TV Preachers Work Hard to Claw at the Specks in Others' Eyes While Overlooking the Logs in Their Own
If you want to know what I'm talking about, then you should probably turn on religious TV stations once in a while and read the Bible, in particular the New Testament, and in particular the books: John, Luke, Mark, and Matthew.

“When you’re through changing, you’re through.”
Who is/was Bruce Barton?* A fundraiser for Barack Obama? A left-wing nut bent on turning the U.S. into another form of government? An anti-democracy or anti-federalist nut-case closely watched by the CIA, FBI, and Homeland Security? The anti-Christ? Someone who hated Jesus?

Isn't it ironic that so many people who mistakenly take Cain's indignant statement to God—"am I my brother's keeper?"—as though it was a command, seem to be the very ones shouting the loudest against an intelligent and compassionate healthcare system, like every other modern society has? One that is more interested in keeping people healthy and fixing ills quickly versus making executives rich and enriching their shareholders? Isn't this so much bigger than a miniscule portion of the population seeking enormous financial gain from driving so many to bankruptcy?

Why are so many people who call themselves Christians so busy looking for the anti-Christ?
It's it written in Revelation (ch. 11-13), foretold by Yeshua/Jesus (Matt 17, Mark 9, Luke 1), and alluded to in the Old Testament (Malachi 4) that Elijah returns and preaches before the anti-Christ shows up.
But I don't hear one word about Christians trying to see who is "the Elijah who is to come" (see Matt, Mark, Luke refs. above) or figuring out from scripture what he might say or do.

This story is really a great story of love. Get ready to wipe the tears from your eyes! Here are some excerpts:
It's no wonder she embraced this philosophy of self-reliance. She knew how unexpectedly life can rob you of someone you care about. My parents adopted me as an infant and went on to have a biological child -- my brother, Jason -- a couple of years later.
