    I don't really have anybody I can talk to about this that would understand. I don't expect FR too either, but it's as good a place as any to vent. You know what I do? I get up every day and go to work. I do my job and get my work done. I come home. I do it again the next day. And then again, and again, and again. When I am dead, the most anyone will ever say about me is "he went to work ever day". If I were to simply drop dead, everything would pretty much...

    “Local pastor charged in assault,” the Akron Beacon Journal reports. “Minister accused of speeding off in Lexus with repo man on hood.” If the repo man’s story bears out, it sounds like a pretty wild ride: He said the pastor was smiling during parts of the drive as he weaved and made sharp moves in an apparent effort to toss the repo man off. ''He hit the windshield wipers to try to knock my hands off the hood,'' Falzini said. ''He was laughing at me, telling me he was going to take me on the interstate.'' Pastor Marc Neal is...

    Marxist democrats say the darndest things, and I’m not talking about Mr Gaffetastic, Joe “Big F****ing Deal” Biden who is liable to say anything, at anytime. Two words: Impeachment insurance! No…this time I’m talking about a working Marxist communist, Congressman John Dingell, who is absolute proof we need term limits and we need them yesterday.

    Is the Jim Wallis blog (GodsPolitics) just another Political Arm. After all, Mr. Wallis is one of the Spiritual Advisors in Obama's Spiritual Cabinet. One might very well be asking, just exactly who is this guy, and why is he advocating that ALL Christians boycott Glenn Bleck?

    special thanks to hanna548 for the artworkThere is a disturbing trend that has taken hold of the modern day Christian community, and it is my opinion that this trend is causing a schism as big as the one that was addressed at the Council of Nicea over the Trinity. Now this is not a debate for those who have no faith in Christ, for what accord has Christ with Belial? No, this is strictly a debate for those who profess Christ as their Lord and Savior. Unfortunately, those who attempt to address the problem are usually labeled as rabble-rousers who...

    Did apes descend from us? Skeleton of Ardi, 1.2-metre, 50-kilogram female may hold the clue Joseph Hall Science writer It may well be the closest we will ever come to the missing link between chimps and humans and the most important anthropological find ever. In a series of studies released today by the journal Science, researchers have revealed a creature that took the first upright steps toward human beings and fundamentally changes the way we look at our earliest evolutionary ancestors. The research brings into question the belief that our most distant ancestors descended from apes. What's closer to the...

    Return to the Article August 19, 2009The Alinskyite's Big, Fat Governance FailureBy Kyle-Anne Shiver What happens when the thing a president knows best is a set of tactics designed to take power from the "haves"?  When the most highly prized info a president ever garnered could be summed up as nothing better than gaming an electoral system with ACORN pay-for-registration schemes?  What happens when a president is very skilled in deceptively cloaking these less-than-altruistic means in rhetorical "moral garments" and his lies finally start catching up with him, destroying his credibility?  When a president has never actually run anything...

    President Obama preempted soaps (but) viewers shouldn't have been disappointed: The president had arranged some prepackaged entertainment for them. After the obligatory first question from the Associated Press, Obama treated the overflowing White House briefing room to a surprise. "I know Nico Pitney is here from the Huffington Post," he announced. Obama knew this because White House aides had called Pitney the day before to invite him, and they had escorted him into the room. They told him the president was likely to call on him, with the understanding that he would ask a question about Iran that had been...

    Listening to Tom Standage talking about his new book, An Edible History of Humanity this morning I was reminded of a paper written by the anthropologist and author Jared Diamond in the late 1980's. Diamond described agriculture as, "the worst mistake in the history of the human race". Farming was, he argued, a catastrophe from which we have never quite recovered. With agriculture came "the social and sexual inequality, disease and despotism, that curse our existence".

    Anyone who has made a fool out of the mainstream media as often as the Charles Johnson has can’t be all bad – even if he is making a bigger fool out of himself these days. Five years ago, the talented creator of the Little Green Footballs blog and “co-founder” of Pajamas Media (a top-notch web magazine) went toe-to-toe with CBS News and not only took down Dan Rather, but also won a great deal of respect for on-line journalism in the process… Then things got weird. Really weird. What happened to the nearly 60-year-old Johnson after hitting his high-water...

    Charles Johnson of LGF, or the “Second Coming of Andrew Sullivan” has become somewhat of a mad raving lunatic of late. Railing against Christians, God, and anyone who fails to worship his ‘god’ Barack Obama. He also picks on Glenn Beck and calls him a “punk”. Funny that should come from one who’s way of discourse is to ban or resort to juvenile name calling. But then again Beck is the star and Johnson, well he’s known for some clique albums on an for exposing faked Bush memos. Here’s Beck giving Johnson the proverbial stick in the ribs. (Ht STACLU)....

    Here we go again.The latest cause for hyperventilation in the right-wing blogosphere is a report from the Department of Homeland Security on the need for vigilance against extreme right-wing groups like Posse Comitatus, militias, “Patriot” groups, and neo-Nazis like the Christian Identity weirdos. Some bloggers, prompted by World Net Daily, are reading this as an attempt to “smear half of the country or more as kooks for criticizing the government’s handling of the economy.” That’s ludicrous. First, this DHS assessment was begun more than a year ago, before Barack Obama was even nominated. It has absolutely nothing to do with...

    Remember the word "covet", as in "shall not"? Envy is a deadly sin. It is a deliberate decision to ignore our shared humanity and favor, instead, things we can't take with us. Inducing someone else to commit a deadly sin is an even worse act. Class envy, albeit one of the two foundations of the modern Democratic Party's soul (identity politics being the other), is very divisive and fuels mob rule. It is a tool that exploits happy people who were previously neither aware of their forced group membership nor of their antipathy toward other groups. It is a tool...

    Remember after 9-11, when Bill Maher got into some trouble for claiming that the Islamo-nazis, whatever else they were, were courageous? After all, anyone who is willing to fly a plane into a building must be very brave. But this only goes to show what has happened to language and its relationship to intelligible, which is to say, higher, realities. For example, the cardinal virtues -- prudence, justice, courage, and temperance -- represent one such intelligible reality. But children and even (or shall we say, especially) college students are no longer taught about intelligible realities. Rather, they are specifically taught...
