Regardless of where you stand on the birther issue, Obama’s attempt to trivialize its significance is for me another display of his arrogance and cavalier attitude towards the Constitution.
By now we should be accustomed to his inverted perception of reality. If the issue is really that silly then why did he not deal with it immediately and enable the country to move on to those important matters he alluded…Continue

Picture mangled black bodies barely alive, stacked on rough hewn wooden shelves that extend deep into dark recesses in the hold of a specially equipped 17th century sailing ship. Each row is topped by another at a height just high enough to allow each man, woman, or child to lie on his side.
Above them, below them, beside them lie the weak and the dead, the blessed unfortunates who have not…Continue

Listening to Barack Obama is a “what the hell did he just say” kind of experience. For example, on his current “Why You Should Bend Over and Like It” Tour, he recently said the following (“ums and ahs” removed for clarity):…Continue
I have to admit that I get frustrated when I hear the argument that the primary issue of the day is the economy. I understand the focus, but it’s a red herring of sorts.
Admittedly, we are a nation in financial freefall. Because of government excess and the complete failure of our public servants to face truth and its consequences, potential calamity is imminent. However,…Continue
On December 13, 1799, George Washington was engaged in some remodeling activities at Mt. Vernon and found himself working for a good part of the day in a cold and hard rain. He concluded his work and entered the house soaking wet and shortly thereafter he found himself aching and sick. That night he worked in his study, retired to bed after midnight and summoned physicians the next day as he found himself feeling worse than the day…Continue
FRUITS OF FREEDOM - FRUITS OF TYRANNY
Ripened fruit is sweet. Spoiled fruit is not edible, rots in place, draws flies and ferments in the belly. The fruits of freedom, and the Bible expressed as a government in the Spirit of Christ, is as plain as the unparalleled abundance our nation has produced.

BIBLICAL LAW IN PRACTICE
What follows are a tiny sample of the hundreds of verses in the Bible that speak to Law, the nature of man, freedom and the role of legitimate government. There is an abundance of material to establish these truths. They are there for the asking if any man would know them and seek them out. They are based on the very nature of God and in the scriptures God…Continue
Over time, even here, a parasitical ruling class has ravaged the dignity of the individual and persistently violated not the mere privileges granted by civil servants, but rather the unalienable human rights secured and granted by our Creator.
For more than ten decades this self appointed…Continue

OK. It’s not nice. It’s name calling. Oh, the heck with it. Have you ever read what opponents said about each other in the Founder’s era? Even George Washington, viewed practically as a demigod in his time was appalled by the vindictive press that he received, particularly in his second term.
This notion of a fair press, of a balanced perspective, of even handedness or objective reporting is a modern day myth. …Continue

GOVERNMENT: THE GOD OF OUR AGE
The federal government demands obedience and reverence that is due only to the Supreme Being. This is a deep perversion of the commands of God. The State today demands tribute far beyond its lawful and Constitutional requirements. The State now demands the sacrifice of our blood, sweat and tears. It demands of us, contrary to biblical law, what only…Continue

THE BIBLE MATTERED TO THE FOUNDERS
Suffice it to say that an honest examination of the original writings of the Founding Fathers of these United States of America shows that the overwhelming majority of them were clearly devout Christians and their lives and thoughts centered on its teachings. To them, the moral principles, the personal freedom, the individual responsibility, and the…Continue
THE SOURCE OF TRUTH
Interestingly, the Bible is the only book that claims within its pages to be the very word of God. Many books claim to speak to spiritual matters, but only the Bible declares repeatedly that it is God speaking.
The King James Bible says “thus saith the Lord” 430 times in the Old…Continue
NOT JUST FOR CHRISTIANS
Now if you are not a Christian or a Jew you have every right to ask why you should give a flip about my little story. It’s a reasonable response and I need to tell you why I shared it. Take my name and story out and put yours in. We’ve all got one when it comes to spirituality and particularly with what we call religion.…Continue

THE UTILITY OF TRUTH
Truth is the basis upon which all men may interact with confidence. It is the underlying source of trust in human relationships both personal and in commerce. Without it there can be no certainty, there can be no agreement, there can be no commitment, and there can be no peace.

INSIDE OUT, UPSIDE DOWN
We live in a world of experiences. Often they are hard and full of sorrow. They can sometimes be thrilling or maybe monotonous, at times magnificent at other times grindingly difficult. They may occasionally be gentle and lovely, soft as a newborn, sweet as a lover’s smile even marvelous and intricate, perhaps delicate as spider’s silk, and light as a…Continue

WHO, WHAT, WHY
We cannot avoid the gnawing realization that we are entering a time when the weight of the ages will fall upon us in a way we never imagined. With each passing day, that time seems frighteningly inevitable and predictable.
Most of us have grown up in a time of plenty and freedom that has…Continue
