Prayers for @PastorMark Driscoll
“Though more blunt than perhaps a preacher should be, Christians need bluntness in their lives. Mark Driscoll needs some bluntness in his life right now.” “I wouldn’t worship a god who couldn’t win a bar fight.” I’ve used that line and variations of it over the years. Mark Driscoll was the inspiration for it. It is a good and accurate line. In a day and | Read More »
Roger Waters is okay with Hamas, apparently
There are a lot of parenthetical asides in this post. I apologize. Of my musical influences, Pink Floyd is always at or near the top. I’ve discussed it before, but seriously, I do think of Roger Waters as one of the best lyricists of his time (during and after his time with Pink Floyd). And, while he is great at writing lyrics on social alienation leading | Read More »
“I View John Hickenlooper As A Coward”
As detailed fully by Kelly Maher earlier this week, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper is in a political dust up of his own making over the death penalty. Hickenlooper, who is seeking reelection this year and has a formidable opponent in former Congressman Bob Beauprez, recently said that if he isn’t reelected because due to Nathan Dunlap and the death penalty being used as a political | Read More »

The Drums of War Beat For ISIS but is Obama Ready?
As more and more have come out to raise the alarm on ISIS, news has come that the Obama Administration wants new ISIS war plans, which may include operations in Syria, as soon as possible. According to the Daily Beast, “President Obama wants to decide by the end of the week whether or not his war in Iraq against the Islamic State will expand to | Read More »
Even casual viewers and fans of the zombie genre will be made to care. Apparently, it is a big deal that Daryl Dixon may or may not be gay. For those who do not know, The Walking Dead is a show about zombies, among other things, and is filmed here in Georgia. Why we need to know someone’s sexual preference while they are trying to | Read More »
USPTO’s slurring of the 2nd Infantry Division must not stand
In 1972 the Washington Redskins registered their modern graphical logo, USPTO Registration Number 986668. In their Blackhorse v. Pro Football, Inc. decision, USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board decided it was disparaging at the time it was filed.
That’s interesting because the Second Infantry Division of the US Army has been using a red-skinned man in a feathered headdress for even longer, at least World War II, with a nickname of the “Indianhead Division” going back at least as far back as Korea.
USPTO’s implication of the Army engaging in a slur is wrong, and should not stand.Read More »
Mitch McConnell Doesn’t Help Republicans Look Anti-Cronyism
Did you happen to catch this story the other day at National Journal? “Only one week after Sen. Mitch McConnell took the CEO of Delta Air Lines to breakfast in the exclusive Senate Dining Room last month, the airline executive and his wife wrote $10,000 worth of checks to help fund McConnell’s political operation. The donations, which were reported to the Federal Election Commission on Wednesday, made Rick and Susan Anderson | Read More »

I Simply Do Not Care About Global Warming
We’re all going to die or something according to the latest hysteria from the United Nations now that government bureaucrats have sufficiently added hype and hyperbole to the IPCC report on global warming a/k/a climate change. Folks, I do not care. Let me assure you that the world is not going to end and we are not going to cause ourselves to go extinct. This | Read More »
Burger King In Exile
Image Credit: (Wall Street Journal and News Busters) The revenue from a 100% Tax Rate against a revenue base of zero equals zero. The revenue of a smaller and more reasonable rate of taxation against a significantly large base of revenue is still a pretty big number. This fundamental truism eludes the statist drones and Keynesian knuckleheads that designed our current system of taxation. President | Read More »
IRS Lawyers Admit Lois Lerner Obstructed Justice
Via FoxNews, IRS lawyers have dropped a bombshell admission that Lois Lerner’s Blackberry was intentionally wiped and destroyed after the start of the Congressional probe into the activities of her division: Lois Lerner’s Blackberry was intentionally destroyed after Congress had begun its probe into IRS targeting of conservative groups, a senior IRS lawyer acknowledged in a sworn declaration.

Yesterday I noted the letter from Pliny the Younger to Emperor Trajan in 112 AD. Pliny had begun arresting and torturing Christians for the crime of, among other things, obeying the law. Think about that for a minute. It should be noted that Pliny the Younger had been given anonymous lists of who the Christians in his province were. As he wrote Emperor Trajan [A]s | Read More »
New Abortion Barbie Ad Accuses Greg Abbott of Being Pro Cancer
Not to be outdone in attack ad desperation by Mark Pryor, Abortion Barbie Wendy Davis has decided to accuse Greg Abbott of essentially being pro-cancer: As you might have guessed, the ad uses shock value to make up for what it lacks in factual accuracy. This takedown of Abortion Barbie’s ad by Austin’s local NBC affiliate is pretty brutal, even though it is clearly trying | Read More »
How Many Will Die?
How many people world wide are going to be slaughtered because of Barack Obama? I think the number grows daily. It is not just Americans who have died and will die because of Barack Obama, but many others. Our enemies are increasingly on the move across the globe. They are emboldened by a President in mom jeans who’d rather golf than lead. President Obama has | Read More »
Those of us who are in politics and of faith need to work harder at being blameless. Look, we’re all sinners. The biggest difference between most of you guys and me is that my sins have more than once wound up in newspapers and on television. But we all fall short. I think too many of us are using that as an excuse though. Over | Read More »

Mark Pryor (D-AR) Accuses Tom Cotton of Being Pro-Ebola
Well that didn’t take long. After opening his campaign with the most I-Love-Jesus-y ad of this or any other recent decade, Mark Pryor has decided to go negative on Tom Cotton, who has been leading him in most recent polls. And under the theory that if you’re not going to go big, you should go home, Pryor has chosen to accuse Tom Cotton of being… | Read More »
