on December 25, 2012, 4:37 AM / in History, Opinion

As we approach the celebration of Christ’s birth, I am reminded of the words of John Quincy Adams.

“Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

on December 23, 2012, 8:58 AM / in Opinion, Religion

So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.” – Acts 16:30-31 “Finding the right questions is as crucial as finding the right answers,” says devotional writer Henri Nouwen.

Just days ’till the end of the world. Thank goodness. At least then I won’t have to hear any more about the fiscal cliff…nor the proposed solutions, compromises and assorted other prestidigitations that will “save” the country from driving right off the darned thing… considering we jumped off years ago this in nothing particular new.

Good material friends have sent. The first is a cartoon that succinctly illustrates why “gun free zones” are easy targets for deranged gunmen. Second is an attachment of a two page document regarding mind control, a practice I have alluded to before, but we would rather ignore.  (It specifically addresses the deliberate creation of multiple personality disorders among subjects.)
