    <p>Jim Rob Is Right - But Conservatives Here Have TWO Job2 To Do!</p> <p>First - blow off that feeling that we're going to lose, or already have lost! No, we're going to WIN.</p> <p>First item of business, get invovlved in the Tea Party movement, and give D.C. a whole new influx of conservatives in Congress similar in size and importance to that of the last election - thereby blocking any of Obamas chances of having Congressional support for his machinations.

And it must hold the true course without deviation. The navigation of a human life is also, in principle, a very simple matter. As with a ship,...

    ~Favorite Sun Songs~ *Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun* In my eyes, indisposed In disguise as no one knows Hides the face, lies the snake The sun in my disgrace Boiling heat, summer stench 'Neath the black the sky looks dead Call my name through the cream And I'll hear you scream again Chorus: Black hole sun Won't you come And wash away the rain Black hole sun Won't you come Won't you come Stuttering, cold and damp Steal the warm wind tired friend Times are gone for honest men And sometimes far too long for snakes In my shoes,...

Commenting on this, Father John Powell once wrote: "In the pursuit of the fullness of human life, everything depends on this frame of reference, this habitual outlook, this basic vision which I have of myself, others, life, the world, and God. What we see is what we get." Don't you find that to be true? There's a lot about our world that isn't the way we would want it to be:...

    MAKING ASSUMPTIONS A story making the rounds this past week told of a policeman who was heading home after a long, hard day on patrol. He had dealt with a whole succession of difficult people, and a mountain of frustrating paperwork.
