According to the study, people from communities hostile to gay marriage could have their opinions shift dramatically after spending just a few minutes speaking with a gay person who canvassed their neighborhood promoting gay marriage. Not only that, but this could have a spillover effect, making not just the people themselves more pro-gay but also other people who lived in the same household.…Continue
Civics test from Intercollegiate Studies Institute. I scored a 78.79%. I did debate over two questions before picking the wrong answer, and on one question I could argue that the answer I picked is as valid as the one they say is correct. Putting all that aside I did at least score higher than most elected…Continue
The first and most important thing to do during a terrorist attack is to not be there when it happens. If you make a mistake and end up in one, the second most important step is to keep calm.
That may sound like flippant advice but it has a lot of truth to it.
Terrorist attack type 1, Improvised explosive devices:
I was in Turkey when the PKK set off a bomb in a store; I kept walking away from the center of the explosion, others rushed in to help or to see what…Continue
It really all depends on what you want to believe, more so than what is true. I have read several reports on the shooting at Waco TX, however this one from New Orleans, a heavily democrat and black population area reported the news with a different perspective.
The Times-Picayune. New Orleans, Louisiana…Continue
Islamophobic: a word created by fascists, and used by cowards, to manipulate morons.
To be “phobic” is to be scared of something that you’re not usually scared of, like the great outdoors. But to be Islamophobic about honor killings, or throwing acid in girls’ faces, or marrying them off when they are eight-years-old,…Continue
This is difficult because Suzie has a point. What should be our involvement in a world of incremental destruction of moral, family individual respect of themselves and of others, diminishing rights aswell as a curtailing of our responses. We should ask ourselves if we are afraid of this new world? .
While on a site and ill provide it so you can take the time to judge my post. I have to be critical of all I see and do. And so with that in hand I placed a very sobering picture a…Continue
There are signs that depict the end of a culture. Great civilizations of the past were destroyed when people saw these signs but failed to act. You can look at various lists of why a civilization will collapse; seven signs, 10 signs, 22 reasons why, 12 critical points of civilization; and the list goes on. However there are some common signs that I personally believe do point to a collapse of civilization so I am adding my…Continue

Fellow Citizens of the Senate and the House of Representatives.
Among the vicissitudes incident to life, no event could have filled me with greater anxieties than that of which the notification was transmitted by your order, and received on the fourteenth day of the present month. On the one hand, I was…Continue

I know that some of you do not believe in God, I know that some of you have differing beliefs about God than I do; that is OK. This post is in response to a discussion about God, Family and Country, and what we should put as first priority. I will also discuss what I see as a man and a woman’s role in the family should be from a Christian biblical perspective. If you are offended by this do not read it. This is a discussion of priorities, if you do not believe in God he will not be a…Continue
The 64th annual National Day of Prayer is only days away and God is calling us to stand in the gap For Such a Time as This!

Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maids will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish. Esther 4:16
At the height of the glory of the…Continue

When we look at places like Ferguson, Baltimore, Detroit, and Chicago, we see a lot of protesting by minorities. When we look at cases where black men are shot, many times we look to see if there is a criminal record, past pattern of behavior that justifies the shooting. Drug use, violent crime, or gang activity are all checked; but does that justify the killing?…Continue
With the recent unrest in Baltimore and other places and a call That Black Lives Matter, I thought I would take a look at real numbers and see what I could determine what the truth is.
First I would say ALL LIVES MATTER, not just some. Rich or poor, black white, Hispanic or Asian, the Lord God made us all.…Continue

In The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde presented the idea that the good and evil we do is painted on our faces as we age. People who do good look good and people who do evil look evil.
One look at George Soros, Michael Moore, Fred Phelps, or Harry Reid could be led to believe in the evil part, But think of the good people you know, especially the…Continue

Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words give you a feeling. Republic is one of those words that makes me tight in the throat; the same tightness a man gets when his baby takes his first step or his first baby shaves and makes his first sound like a man. Some words can give you a feeling that make your heart warm.…Continue
OBAMA said, in his Cairo speech: “I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”
Islam? Arabs or Muslims? Here we have a very important distinction. First not all Arabs are Muslim and not all Muslims are Arabs. Just as not all Goldbergs are Jewish, not all Muhamad Alis are Muslim. While there are some ties between…Continue
