    If you don't know GOD, don't make stupid remarks!!!!!! A United States Marine was taking some college courses between assignments. He had completed 20 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan . One of the courses had a professor who was an avowed atheist, and a member of the ACLU. >p?One day the professor shocked the class when he came in. He looked to the ceiling and flatly stated, "GOD, if you are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform... I'll give you exactly 15 min." The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop. Ten...

    In February 2014 two divers died at a depth of more than 100m in a huge cave system in Norway. The authorities said it was too dangerous to retrieve their bodies, but four friends of the men decided to take the risk - and seven weeks later they descended into the dark and glacial waters. At such depths and temperatures, a tear in a dry suit on the sharp cave floor could result in death. Because he began to run low on gas he was forced to surface 80 minutes early. Soon afterwards, he began to suffer mild pains in...

    French President Emmanuel Macron defended his country’s participation in a massive missile strike over the weekend, which saw more than 100 missiles fired from US, British, and French ships and aircraft at sites used by the Assad regime’s chemical weapon program. The three countries struck eight targets at three separate facilities over the weekend a week after the Syrian government allegedly used sarin nerve gas and chlorine gas to kill dozens of civilians in a suburb of Damascus. The Western allies informed the Kremlin of the attacks ahead of time, allowing Russia to remove its forces from the targeted compounds...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The body of evangelist Billy Graham will lie in honor under the U.S. Capitol rotunda next week as Congress pays tribute to a clergyman who counseled presidents and preached the Gospel to millions worldwide, House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Thursday. Graham, who died at his home near Asheville, North Carolina, on Wednesday at age 99, will arrive at the white-domed Capitol on Feb. 28 and lie in honor there until the following day, Ryan said in a statement. “Members of the public and Capitol Hill community are invited to pay their respects to the late reverend...

    Although completely ignored by the major news networks, President Donald Trump signed into law on Thursday legislation to establish the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission, which will make plans to honor the 200th anniversary of the birth of Frederick Douglass (1818-1895), a slave who escaped to freedom and became a leading orator, abolitionist, writer, publisher, and statesman. Douglass was a Republican who often criticized the slavery-supporting Democratic Party. "It is not true that the Republican Party has not endeavored to protect the negro in his right to vote," said Douglass in an 1888 speech. "The whole moral power of the party...

    In these willfully ignorant, fiercely partisan times, let’s recall that we fought our bloodiest war to end human bondage. Almost three-quarters of a million Americans died in a complex struggle that began to right an inexcusable injustice. Now we’re re-fighting our Civil War with neo-Stalinist, fact-purging propaganda that makes cartoon villains of the dead. We rush to tear down statues of men we refuse to understand. We rob one group of citizens of their heritage to please another. And the president’s chief of staff cannot state facts about our history without triggering mob-rule outrage from those who could not even...

    A Georgia woman and her fellow Delta passengers were prevented from singing the National Anthem as crews unloaded the casket of a fallen soldier at Atlanta’s airport last weekend. Pamela Dee Gaudry was on a flight toward Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport when she learned the body of a fallen soldier – 29-year-old Army Staff Sgt. Dusting Wright – was on her plane. Gaudry, the wife of a deceased Army captain, wanted to honor the Special Forces soldier who was among four U.S. troops killed in an attack in Niger on Oct. 4, by singing the National Anthem. She went around the...

    On Sunday, a shooter opened fire from the 32nd floor of a hotel in Las Vegas on a country music festival below, killing at least 59 and injuring hundreds. Of those shot and hospitalized was Thomas Gunderson. Then, on Wednesday, President Donald Trump and Melania flew to Las Vegas to meet with victims and came across Gunderson in the hospital. The next moment that was captured and posted on Facebook is something he will likely always remember. As the president and first lady entered his room, Gunderson stood up, despite being shot in the leg to greet the two with...

    This coming Sunday at every house of religious worship and Sports Event and Sports Cafe/Bars across the entire USA, the American people should join together and sing out "God Bless America" in prayer, honor, respect, love, and remembrance of those innocent Americans, killed, slaughtered, wounded and injured, by an insane, nutcase, whose heart and soul where filled with hate of the American people and the American nation. At Sporting events, after the national anthem, the "Star Spangled Banner" is played, it (God Bless America) should be immediately sung by all, following the anthem. Forget the NFL, it is dead-on-arrival, no...

    The small plaza was festooned with miniature American flags. Mariam Kubursi, 11, delivered a stirring rendition of the National Anthem. Most of the approximately 75 people in attendance placed right hands across their hearts as American Legion members stood motionless in military salute. It was a fitting start to the Sept. 19 dedication ceremony for the renaming of the plaza at Main and State streets in downtown Los Altos. The Los Altos City Council in July 2016 approved a request from veterans and their supporters to change the name of Community Plaza to Veterans Community Plaza. “Today, Los Altos joins...
