  • Worship or manage the resources (Saturbray)

    12/10/2016 7:48:23 AM PST · by bray · 7 replies ^ | 12/10/16 | bray
    And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. Genesis 9:2 We now need the discussion of whether we worship the earth or manage it. For the past three decades we have been told by the Three Pillars (Academia, Media and the DNC) to set aside all of our natural resources as a penance to their Animal Worship. They believe the highest moral...
  • Prayer Request: We just got hit with Financial Crisis

    Hello fellow FREEPer prayer warriors and believers! This evening, we got an email from our employer that portends some very bad news. To put it simply, one of the adults in the household is highly likely to be facing reduced (perhaps down to zero) income in the very near future. We use this income for, as you can imagine, to pay essential bills. We care for an elderly relative, living at home, who has dementia. And we care for a youngster in college. Essentially this is, dare I say: Not good. So, God is greater than all of this and...

    One of the country's leading poultry companies, Perdue Farms, announced plans Monday to make both life and death a little easier for its chickens. The changes are a break with current standard practices in the industry, and animal welfare groups are cheering.
  • Who would be a better Commander in Chief: Muslim B. Hussein Obama or Catholic Joe Biden?

    The Clinton-Obama Benghazi Rule is as follows: “1.) ALWAYS STAND DOWN WHEN MUSLIMS ATTACK, 2.) WAIT FOR THE MUSLIMS TO FINISH THEIR BLOOD SPORT KILLING, AND 3.) THEN DO NOTHING.” Since September 11, 2014, Obama has: * Invoked the field-tested, Clinton-Obama Benghazi Rule for the US in order to allow the ongoing genocide of Christians, and Yazidis in current US Ally Iraq; * Refused to keep his Word on his Redline in Syria; * Released the GITMO FIVE to supervise the rapid growth of ISIS; * Repeatedly proclaimed that HIS "American People" are war weary; * Ordered the dismissing of...
  • What is the Green Bible?

    07/14/2013 12:53:18 PM PDT · by Fiji Hill · 20 replies
    Question: "What is the Green Bible?"Answer: The Green Bible, published in 2008 by Harper Collins Publishers, is not a new translation. The publishers use the New Revised Standard Version as their text. The whole premise of this version is similar to the “red-letter” editions of the Bible where the words of Christ are printed in red ink. Following this approach, the Green Bible prints in green ink verses and passages which, according to the publisher, deal with environmental topics or creation care. They break this down into four categories: 1. How God and Jesus are involved in creation; 2. How...
  • Chicago Jesuits settle priest abuse case for $19.6 million

    CHICAGO, May 22 (UPI) -- Six men who charge they were victims of former priest Donald McGuire have settled a sex abuse lawsuit against Chicago Jesuits for $19.6 million. The payout averaging $3 million a person is the largest individual amount awarded in the history of the U.S. Catholic sexual abuse scandal, lawyers for the victims told the Chicago Tribune. Settlement of the lawsuit against the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus names a number of Jesuit superiors who for four decades kept McGuire's crimes a secret and enabled him to abuse more young men, victims' attorneys said. Internal...
  • Is REVENGE or SMOKESCREEN the motive for Benghazi-Coward Obama's Fiscal "Cliff"?

    The financial disaster of the loss of over one Trillion Taxpayer Dollars per year by the incompetent financial stewardship of Benghazi-Coward B. Hussein Obama continues without significant opposition by the cowardly US House of Representatives. Sobber of the House Boehner is so fearful of the negative opinions that will always come from the Commie Liberal Agenda Media, (CLAM), that Boehner is willing to tearfully impale himself on Obama's threat of a veto just to "save" America from not getting a "Deal" by the end of 2012. Conservatives do not want a "Deal." What we want is for the US House...

    The financial death spiral of the US Federal Government has been caused by financially irresponsible politicians during the last 80 years. Their lack of stewardship has resulted in them charging us with a National Debt of 14.8 TRILLION dollars, which must be paid back, plus interest, to those who we borrowed the money from. We have indeed allowed these same politicians to cruelly burden our own grandchild with this horrific National Debt. We have no one to blame but ourselves for electing them in the first place, and not impeaching them when they failed to spend our money within our...
  • What Happened to CHECKS AND BALANCES Empowering Congress to Restrain Spendaholic Obama?

    The System of Checks and Balances is designed to restrain abuse of power by another branch of the US Federal Government. The Legislative Branch may start investigations, especially against the Executive Branch. Why has the Legislation Branch not used their power of Checks and Balances by by investigating Obama? What more is needed than a Spendaholic-in-Chief, who is afraid to meet with Congressional Leaders and attends pep rallies instead, who has destroyed over 4 TRILLION dollars in less that 3 years, who signed the un-Constitutional obama"care" bill into law, etc. etc.? Clearly the Executive Branch has abused its power! What...

    When do we, the oppressed, tax-burdened serfs of the Feudal Lords of The Beltway FINALLY stand and deliver the simple NO! that has always caused similar despots to pause in their relentless drive to regulate, control and destroy America? I say the time to do so is immediately after THE NINE SUPREMES approve, in whole, or in part, Obama"care" Law's ruthless nationalization of 1/6 th of America's Economy! What say all of you?

    Now that Obama is continuing to MELTDOWN by giving public speeches to HIMSELF, ( my personal favorite so far, is his recent speech in front of the Congressional Black Caucus ), we here at FR need to turn a larger share of our attention to supporting competent candidates for the US Senate. Our main problem, of course, is the large number of incumbent Senators who are Republican In Name Only ( RINO for you lurkers ) . These RINO Senators are more that willing to do their typical "Bipartisan Cave-In" to "save" ANY Liberal/Socialist bill, but they just might be...

    Professor You Lie, currently on academic leave from the Chicago School of Bureaucratic Socialism, last night arrogantly delivered his usual cookie-cutter Keynesianism Socialist Lecture Number 14.6T to a partial Joint Session of Congress. Judging by the long faces of the assembled Democrats, I sensed an air of defeat. Had their guy thrown in the towel? It was a very tense 32 minutes for them as You Lie brought up the painful subjects of "dismantling the Government," "not raising taxes on anyone during their lifetime," (I guess they could make it retroactive, but I'm not a lawyer), "no more earmarks," and...

    Back in the day, Frankie sat by his cuddly fire and opined about "Fear" and the glowing virtues of his and Ellie's New Deal. He was a great orator - - - . Ah , those were the days! Today, The New Deal has successfully bankrupted America AND we still have a great orator! Yes, indeedy! Professor You Lie is on hand to wax poetic on the updated agenda of this day: that golden, luxurious solver of all problems - - - ABUNDANT DEBT! Oh, joy! Oh, Rapture! But wait! There is evil all around us - - - ....

    Surrounded by his lap-dogs of the left, Professor You Lie picks up the rough draft of his 9-8-11 speech. It is a tense moment: will authors Porky Pelosi and Reid-in-the-wind hear their words, or the pretty words of You Lie? The silence is deafening! Quickly laying down the rough draft, You Lie says: " People will tell you that I am a "bank-bashing-Bolshevik." If that is the case, then why am I creating the National Infastructure Bank? People will tell you that James Hoffa, Junior yesterday made a speech attacking the Taxed Enough Already Party. That is not what I...

To bad the unemployment rate was still 20 % when Pearl Harbor blew up. It would have been one data point to support ol' John Maynard Keynes and his style of Socialism. Did he ever visit America? Probably not. KM* never visited Russia. Both were Brits - - - . Anyway, we damn sure aren't going to get a positive data point...

    The forces of Zero's Keynesianism and the tattered remnants of the Free Market proponents meet on 9-8-2011 to hear Zero arrogantly announce how HE plans to buy "jobs" with MY grandchildren's future paychecks. It will be an auspicious occasion I'm sure. Since I plan to watch The Packers whup up on the enemy, I though we could help Ol' Zero improve his " 9-8-jobs-can-wait" speech by including a few things that might, could work, and give us time to watch some FOOTBALL! All the L.I.E. Media wants to talk or write about is what Zero is going to say. At...

    Noted unprofessional economist, Paul Harvey once said, " WHEN YOUR OUTGO EXCEEDS YOUR INCOME, YOUR UPKEEP WILL BE YOUR DOWNFALL. " That was fine back in the day before we had credit cards, but now we know that " Change [ read: Keynesianism ] has come to America. " At least that is what Professor You Lie said back in January, 2009. Well, here we are in September, 2011 and 4,000 billion dollars poorer, and still the basic question remains: Are we better off poor and freed from being "To Big to Fail" like those bad old private companies we...

    “Courage is being scared to death…. but saddling up anyway.”Good stewardship by the United States Government (“We the People”) is failing miserably. Good stewardship is at the heart of Biblical expectation. Therefore, as a Christian Nation enjoying God’s blessings and founded on God given principles, the following topic is not just a necessary secular topic, but a necessary religious topic. Folks may be afraid to talk about and even engage in taking action, but they are even more afraid of the consequences. However, it is time to “saddle up”.America is scared to death at this point in the country’s history....
