    to me it’s like saying “Monkeys wearing Mickey mouse hats and platform shoes are the greatest threat to world peace”.

    If one of those monkeys is sitting behind a desk in the Oval Office that would be true. Chronic indecision and weakness in a nation's leadership is often seen as an opportunity for aggressive acts by a potential enemy or enemies plural, and IMHO the US has never in all it's history had weaker and/or more inept leadership in it's dealings with hostile foreign nations than that which we're cursed with today.

    Sometimes I have to wonder if Obama is God's punishment for our nation's turning away from Him and His moral laws (abortion, drug abuse, homosexual "marriage", rampant divorce without biblical cause, etc, etc.) Other times I don't even wonder, I just see those unGodly practices taking place so blatantly without any hint of shame by the practitioners that there's no doubt in my mind.

    www.telegraph.co.uk › News › World News The Daily Telegraph May 27, 2008 - Five countries will meet in Greenland today to thrash out ownership of the Arctic Ocean, which could hold up to one quarter of the world's undiscovered oil and gas reserves. Canada, Denmark, Norway, Russia and the United States are squabbling over much of the Arctic seabed.

    I suppose that at some point since 2008 the other 4 nations must have given Obama the right to approve or disapprove oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean. Or more likely, he just assumed that he has that authority since even the US Congress let's him get away with any outrage he commits against the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of America's people in general. When, if ever, will this nightmarish episode in America's history end?

    After that nerve racking incident I promised myself that I wouldn't get more than a block or two away from the Mall if, God forbid, I ever have to go into D.C again.

    I agree with most of the article, the US is turning against God and His laws so rapidly I can't even keep up with which "Christian" denominations are lobbying for legalized "gay" marriage and which ones are demanding laws that would severely penalize businesses that don't provide free abortions for employees. Most mainstream protestant denominations have now turned against Israel, God's chosen people past, present, and forever, and have allied with Israel's America's, and Christianity's worst enemies in the entire world.

    I could go on and on regarding America's departure from the biblical Christianity of our forefathers and has instead embraced Satan's own agenda for the future he has planned for all human beings. But I imagine most of us already see the writing on the wall regarding today's anti-Christian America and it's morally and spiritually corrupt mainline "Christian" denominations and churches.

    The hand on the wall in ancient Babylon wrote to it's new young king Belshazzar that "God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end. You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting. Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians." I believe God is now writing on the wall to America's Christians through His faithful ministers, bible scholars, and evangelists, warning us that our nation is in a deadly moral decline and that unless we repent America will eventually be taken over by foreign enemies within our own borders. By Islamists perhaps? If so, Detroit will no doubt be the 1st major US city to begin beheading infidels, AKA American Christians.

    America was great while it lasted, but too many riches and too little bible based Christianity corrupted the majority of the people and we turned against the God who gave freedom to America against all odds, that is to say, against the most powerful nation on earth at the time.

    The natural order will reassert itself. It always does.

    I don't think so, at least not on the so-called "gay rights" issue. I believe the bible foretells that sin of all kinds, and especially homosexual sin, will increase dramatically as biblical end-times prophecies of a Satanic world ruler become reality. I don't know the Catholic interpretation of the book of the Apocalypse, but many protestant bible scholars believe that AntiChrist will be homosexual. I believe that he will practice every vile sin imaginable and will encourage sinning by his human subjects, but I don't find any passages of scripture that predict he will be homosexual.

    There are countless other interpretations of the Book of the Apocalypse, enough for every Christian to choose his or her favorite, but I believe the fundamentalist interpretation is closer to the truth than any others I have studied. I doubt that it's entirely correct in all it's predictions and ramifications, but I believe it's closer to the truth about the future world governed by AntiChrist than any other I have heard or read.

And if the nauseating sexual practices of "gays" is actually lovemaking, as they and the media would have us believe, then I must have totally misunderstood the meaning of that word for all these many years.

    One or two neanderthals show up on a street corner spewing hate

    I don't see anything on those placards that shows hate for anyone. In fact just the opposite, they're warning homosexuals that their eternal life is at stake if they continue practicing homosexual perversion. God doesn't hate homosexuals, He hates the sin they commit that will condemn them to eternal damnation in hell unless they stop sinning and call on Jesus Christ for salvation through His atoning death on the cross.

    And no bible believing Christian, or anyone Christian or not, who can read can deny that God Himself condemns homosexual acts as sin. Never the less, I see and hear people writing and speaking in various venues saying that homosexual acts are not sins condemned by God. Sorry folks, but God's Word says otherwise, and I can post scripture references for anyone who doesn't believe it. Here's one of many just for starters, citing reasons for God's annihilation of all antediluvian humans except righteous Noah and his family:

    Romans ch 1, vs 26-27,

    "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts, even the women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts and received due penalty for their perversion

    I can cite more scripture condemning homosexual acts and God's punishment for committing those acts, including the well know examples of Sodom and Gomarrah if this isn't enough. We don't get to decide for ourselves what is or isn't sin, God's Word tells us what sin is and we have a free choice to either obey or disobey, but disobedience has consequences.

    Your Dad is one of my WWII heroes whether he served in combat or in support of others who did see combat. One of my uncles was an aerial gunnery instructor in the Army Air Corps for the entire war and never got closer to combat than an air base is south TX. Never the less, I consider him as one of my heroes along with several other close relatives who served in various positions. That includes my deceased father law who spent the last year of the war in the Philippines making ice cream for navy ships. There was also one who died in his co-pilot seat when his B-24 bomber crashed and burned in North Africa while taking off to bomb an enemy position somewhere in Italy. Another hero is a cousin who came home shell-shocked after the war in Europe ended. He never fully recovered and died at a very early age. No one is sure, but we all believe his early age death was at least partially attributable to his damaged nervous system. All those old boys are heroes AFAIC, and so is your Dad. Tell him I said so.

    As for me, I was too young for Korea and too old for Viet Nam. If I had it to do over again I would probably delay college and sign up in the Air Force along with my high school best buddy who served 2 years of active service followed by 6 years in the Air Force Reserve. That program was available when I graduated high school but I wasn't interested at the time and went ahead with my parents plan for my college education, an effort on which I spent lots of their dollars but never completed.

    I don't believe that anything I said in #17 about the Greeks and their WWII plight under fascist Italian and nazi German occupiers implied that they mistreated Jews or failed to do what they could to protect them as best they could under very unfavorable wartime conditions. However, if you took my comments as an insult to or as criticism of the Greeks of that day and time they certainly weren't intended to be that.

    Actually, I have a family connection to a couple of Greek families in Tarpon Springs, FL. One of my aunts, now deceased, married a very congenial and likeable gentleman, also deceased, from a Greek family living in that area. That marriage produced two of my youngest 1st cousins, who AFAIK still live and work in that general area.

    As you may know, many Greeks immigrated to Tarpon Springs in the early 20th century in order to harvest the sponges that thrive in that sector of the Gulf of Mexico. The Greek divers who work in that industry have since intermarried with local Florida families to the extent that the two cultures and the people themselves have intermingled to the point where both are now simply Americans. Which IMHO is as it should be in this land of immigrants.

    If I remember WWII history correctly, well somewhat correctly at least, the Greek army defended northern Greece against Mussolini's poorly equipped and trained army quite handily, and eventually drove the Ities back to the northern Greek border from whence they came. Unfortunately for Greece, Hitler then bailed out his good buddy by dispatching a few of his crack army divisions, along with the dreaded Luftwaffe, into the battle and Greece was soon ready to be turned over to Mussolini's guys.

    I'm sure the Greeks didn't exactly enjoy being occupied by their Itie neighbors, but it sure beat the heck out of being ravaged by Hitler's bully-boys. And furthermore, who wouldn't rather be occupied by dark haired folks who make really good pizza and ice cream than by a gang of ill tempered blond haired bullys who think sauerkraut and fatty sausages are the epitome of fine dining?

    Hope your dad had a peaceful and happy life after serving his country under very difficult and dangerous conditions. From what I have been told by guys who were there, life on those WWII era subs was no stroll in the park. One navy vet who I worked with a couple of decades after the war served on a Navy long range patrol boat operating out of an Alaska port. He said a US sub that he boarded while it was in port for some reason or other that I don't remember stunk so bad he almost tossed his cookies before he could get back off.

    Always wanted a .357.

    Then by all means get one. IMHO the .367 mag revolver is the most versatile handgun on the market. A 6" or 7-1/2" bbl revolver will handle game up to and including deer, and on the other side of the coin, with good .38 spl ammo a quality-built .357 will deliver as much or more accuracy than 90% of handgun shooters can utilize.

    I recently sold a 2-1/2" stainless Taurus that I wish I had kept. Although Taurus revolvers aren't usually noted for a high degree of accuracy, that little snub-nose gun would match any 4" gun in my collection if I did my part properly. It was the most accurate short barrel handgun I've ever owned in the 60+ years that I've owned guns, but a friend of a friend talked me into selling it to him and it's too late now to welch on the deal.

    If the new DW is as well built as the older ones I've handled (but not fired) it should be a top notch handgun. I still tend to favor revolvers over semi-autos even though they have become much less popular with the younger shooters of today than they were "back in my day".

    I'm currently teaching my 13 YO grandson to shoot accurately and safely handle guns of all types that I have available for him to try, and even though he shoots my various revolvers very well for his age and limited experience, his 1st choice is always my 65 year old Colt .45 acp 1911.

    Bibi will do whatever he believes is in the best interest of his people and their sovereign nation, and Obie can go pound sand if he doesn't like it. Israel's military technology is as good as anything anywhere, and it has it's own nukes and the means to deliver them if it comes to a nuclear war with Iran. No one but the Israelis know how many nuke warheads they have, but a recent estimate I read was around 200, at least some of which were bought from France in a highly secret exchange. I only hope the Frogs are better at building nukes than they are at building cars.
  • How the Clinton Scandal can bring down the Democrats

    if Hillary Clinton walked into a kindergarten with a belt-fed M-249 and mowed down a room full of kids the majority of Democrats would not only excuse and justify her actions they’d still vote for her.

    Exactly right. Practically all otherwise sensible women who would normally vote for a moderate/conservative Repub man will vote for Hillary for just one irrational reason, if elected she will be the 1st woman president.

    By the same token, practically all women, a majority of whom are liberals or at least moderates, would also have voted for conservative Margaret Thatcher if she could have run over here.

    By and large, women usually make decisions based more on how they "feel" about the matter at hand than they do by rational thought processes.

    Not trying to stir up a hornet's nest, just stating a well known fact.

    I don’t know about a fix, but it’s now clear to me that Kennedy will go along with the 4 libs and so-called “gay” marriage will get constitutional protection. I believe it’s all in God’s hands, and He will not tolerate much more from a decadent America before He brings down judgment on us. I say “us” because He knows that most Christians have sat on our hands and allowed our once-Christian nation to be destroyed by an anti-Christian public education system and gross immorality in almost every part of our entertainment industry. Mighty Rome fell to her enemies and America can fall just as surely as Rome. I’m almost 78 and probably won’t be around to see it happen, but unfortunately my children grandchildren probably will, that is if they aren’t executed before then for the crime of being born again Christians.

    Our culture is leaving total depravity and galloping toward utter depravity

    You must have noticed that too. My wife and I were discussing that same thing recently, we can hardly believe how rapidly the US is sliding downhill in almost every way, shape, and form, especially morality.

    Sexual morality has disappeared so fast within the scope of Obama's regime that it's breathtaking. A decade or two ago even the most liberal states such as MA and CA didn't recognize so-called "gay" marriage, and now practically every state can hardly wait to get in line to legalize that abomination. It seems that even here in our little rural GA area there are more unmarried couples than married, and unless you know who's who you can't be really sure whose kids are whose.

    Once the queers get their man-man "marriages" legalized in every state what's next on their agenda, man-dog marriage? woman-donkey marriage? I don't think I want to know, I'm nauseous enough already.

    and this organism has traditionally outsmarted us with every drug we’ve put at it,” Bolan said.

    Sorry bout that Mr. Bolan, but you can't outsmart God with better drugs or anything else. There's only one kind of safe sex, that is, intercourse between one faithful male husband and one faithful female wife.

    According to the 1st ch of the Book of Romans homosexual sex acts committed by both male and female antediluvians was one of the primary reasons why God destroyed the ancient world with a universal flood, and Americas new policy of same-sex "marriage" is no less an abomination than that of the antediluvians. I don't expect another flood, but I do expect God to lift the wall of protection that He built around the America of our Christian forefathers.

    “Ted Cruz said, ‘If one of my daughters was gay, I would love them just as much,’”

    So where's the problem with that? If my daughter or son was homosexual (I don't call homosexual perversion "gay") I would love her or him just as much as I do now, and so would any normal father or mother. Don't get me wrong, I'm as steadfastly opposed to homosexual "marriage" as anyone could be. But although I hate the sin I must love the sinner. And in fact so does God, enough to send His Son to die in his/her place.

    Homosexual acts are a sinful perversion of God's plan for populating the earth, and in Romans ch 1 rampant homosexual activities are named as one of the primary reasons for God's destruction of the antediluvian world with a universal flood. However, I don't see how any normal Christian parent could not love a son or daughter no matter how great a sinner he/she might be.

    This begs the question, who do we believe?

    I believe one about as much as I believe the other, which is to say neither one. I believe that Obama's claim to be a Christian is false and his actual faith is Islam. That is, if he really believes in any God, which is doubtful IMHO.

    I don't know very much about Islam, but I assume it classifies lying as sin. And if so, Obama doesn't qualify as a devotee of Islam, or any religion for that matter, since he's by far the most prolific liar ever to disgrace the high office he holds.

    I suppose I've come to the point where I have very little faith in the veracity of any prominent politician's claims or statements, but Obama ranks 1st, or last depending on one's point of view, and Hill & Bill aren't too far behind. Wish I could say that all Repub would-be nominees don't even qualify as contenders for that title, but after watching the hi-jinks of major league politicians of both parties ever since I was a teenager 6 decades ago I have come to the conclusion that I can't believe even 1/2 of anything that even the most reputable of them says or claims.

    The only nationally prominent politician who I believe was an exception to that general rule is Ronald Reagan. He stands out in my estimation as the only 20th century president who put the welfare on the nation ahead of political ambition, and the only one whose "word was as good as his bond", to quote an "old saying" of my grandfather. I doubt that very many of us on this forum will see his equal occupy that high office again, and considering my age I'm quite sure that I won't.

    They have in common that they love Jesus and seek to follow him.

    If "they love Jesus and seek to follow him" as they claim, they're certainly not following him very closely. Jesus never suggested that his followers practice sinful homosexual acts that are clearly forbidden by his father, aka God. If the total destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah's homosexual populations didn't make God's law in re homosexual acts clear enough, the drowning of millions of debauched antediluvians in what is often called Noah's flood should.

    See ch 1 vv 24-27 of Paul's epistle to the Christians in Rome for more information about the real reasons why God destroyed the ancient world and it's people with a universal flood. I know, I know, a universal flood isn't what most of today's denominational seminaries teach and their graduate pastors preach. But it's what God's Word teaches, and He was there and they weren't.

    Romans KJV ch 1, v 24-27:

    (24)Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:

    (25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    (26) For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

    The Apostle Paul's letter to the Christians in Rome clearly says that God destroyed the antediluvian world's people with a universal flood because of their sins, one of which was the homosexual acts of all the people except righteous Noah and his family. Paul describes their homosexual sins in polite terms, but it's very clear that he was referring to that generation's depraved homosexual acts. If God destroyed all but 8 of the antediluvian people for their homosexual sins, why would he spare America now that we as a nation also approve that very same sin?

    Rather than concede that abortion is undesirable,

    It's far more than "undesirable", it's nothing less than cold blooded 1st degree murder of an innocent human being. Every doctor knows that a human being is conceived when a male sperm cell combines with an egg in a woman's body to create a zygote, which is the earliest stage in the development of a infant human being. Therefore killing that zygote at any stage of it's development kills a live human being.

    The commandment "Thou shalt not kill" isn't just applicable to post-birth humans or even to late-term pre-birth babies, it applies to all human beings at every stage of life from conception to natural death.

    “people in the red states vote for nazis to govern, and then call themselves Christian, it will not end well for them."

    The people who are calling bible believing Christians Nazis because we don't approve the homosexual lifestyle are in effect calling God's written Word a Nazi book. In the 1st ch of Paul's epistle to the Church at Rome he briefly describes the sins of the antedeluvians whose sinful practices were at least part of the reason for His destruction of that civilization except righteous Noah's family. One of those sins was the practice of homosexual acts, and apparently the destruction of that civilization wasn't taken as a warning because it's homosexual acts were been practiced on a large scale by the people of Paul's generation.

    If ancient Greece and Rome were debauched and eventually destroyed by homosexual practices, how can modern day America escape that same punishment for not just legalizing those sins but actually prosecuting Christians and businesses who dare call sin sin and refuse to condone it? I and the vast majority of all Christians don't hate homosexuals, we hate the sinful lifestyles they practice and that are practically asking for God's catastrophic judgment to fall on America and it's people.

    It’s a personal issue.”

    Wrong "Miss" Wager, your perverted, grotesque lifestyle is a very important issue to the parents of the children who you teach. If you were my grand children's teacher I'm certain that my son and daughter in law would immediately arrange to home school them if at all possible, or transfer them to a private school, preferably a private Christian school, if home schooling was not possible. In fact, my own 2 grandchildren,(grades 7&12) are both being schooled by their mother, and both are receiving a demonstrably better education than their contemporaries in local public schools, and probably better than almost all other public schools.

    A quality education is important in today's dog eat dog economy. But high moral standards are even more important, and a kid gets both by home schooling, or at least by a good private school.
