China Agitates To Undermine American Liberties

    It’s bad enough that those living under the heal of tyranny have their God-given rights suppressed, but one expects to hear of this transpiring in less-developed countries that have never really known freedom to begin with. However, things have really gotten out of hand when those living in the United States have to fear for their livelihoods for speaking out against abridgements of liberty occurring | Read More »

    The Olympics, Michael Phelps And Team USA

    Setting the world of politics aside for a day, I want to give kudos to a true athletic genius, Michael Phelps. Yesterday in Beijing Phelps won his eleventh Gold Medal placing him above Olympic icons Carl Lewis and Mark Spitz as the athlete who has won the most Gold Medals in Olympic history. He is also well on his way to winning eight Gold Medals | Read More »

    Olympic Opening Ceremony is Lame Open Thread

    They have nothing to resemble alphabetical order. The stunts are mostly lame. And no word yet if the torch will be lit with Tibetans and Falun Gong activists as kindling. Have I mentioned I hate the Chicoms? Here’s an open thread. UPDATE Did McDonalds design the Chicoms’ outfits? (kidding, yes I know it is the chicom color scheme). By the way, was I the only | Read More »

    McCain Matches Obama’s Olympic Ad Buy

    John McCain needs to spend down the $35 million he had in the bank as of July 1 in advance of the Republican nominating convention. For that reason, it makes sense for him to spend more on Olympic advertising than Barack Obama will:

    China to Limit Web Access During Olympic Games

    My wife just sent me this link. Apparently, the Chinese promised the international Olympic committee that the would allow journalists free access to the internet, but have renegged (yes, I used that word!) on thier promise.

    This is totally unrelated to education, but I would like to share it anyway. The Voice of the Martyrs is giving away free Olympic Prayer Bands to help you remember to pray for the persecuted Christians in China during the Olympics. I encourage every Christian to order theirs today at Voice of the Martyrs.

    Item 10,386 in “coulda seen this comin’”

    Found this on HotAir Headlines, had to post here with Commentary. http://www.smh.com.au/news/beijing2008/chinese-red-tape-redefines-freedom-for-the-press/2008/07/11/1215658131357.html Go figure. China doesn’t want Journalists roaming around, they just might find something embarrassing. I like the part about the “live” tv feed – it has a 10 second delay, the better to not let the masses know just how illegitimate the totalitarian government really is. When will we in the West quit | Read More »

    Eric Shanteau – Champion

    This is something else. Good on him for sticking to his dream, but I hope he is responsible and gets back to get treatment ASAP. Olympic swimmer Eric Shanteau, of Lilburn, is heading to Beijing with a startling diagnosis: He has cancer. In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, Shanteau said he learned just a week before the Olympic trials in Omaha, Neb., that | Read More »
