Da Rulz

He DID build this.

We have twice as many poor people without hope as we had the day Pres Obama took the oath of Office. It's time for a change.
These are Palestinians. They waste no time in teaching their children what they believe. In the meantime, Christian parents lollygag around thinking such issues as this are too "deep" or "grownup" for their children to understand, so they say nothing. Go ahead--stay silent. But understand that while you are not passing your beliefs on to your kids, the world is gladly filling in the blanks for you. And now, according to surveys, more and more of our Christian youth think Israel is the problem.

Just sayin....#asleepatthewheel

Teach your kids to bless Abraham:

Even though this was a couple of years ago this is the type of insanity that goes on here in our Little Bubble called Detroit! I remember when this happened, but this type of crap goes on everyday in Detroit Politics this is the true definition of Liberal Insanity! Anybody that is from the Metropolitan Detroit area is used to this type of craziness being spewed from these people! If Detroit was a Soap Opera it would be called "As Detroit Turns" because this is the reason why Detroit is in the condition that it's in today because of all of these Looney Tunes running it straight into the ground!

I am in agreement. We need weeds

Bring on the FEASTS of GOD

I am observant. Not Jewish. Not schizophrenic. Just observant. Every fall I have moments of remembrance about the upcoming feast days. I observe them. i also observe Christmas, even though in reality it has almost nothing to do with the Birth of Jesus, I observe and call the day EASTER even though every year I am subjected to catcalls for doing so by those who insist it has to do with a pagan Egyptian god. I don't do this from the position of a religious responsibility or legalism, but out of awe for the God who created this all and told those who He chose that this was important. Yes this is a New Covenant thing or you have to tear all of Zechariah 14 out of the Bible to miss the overflow. OK, not that harsh. And if you are into tearing chapters out of your Bible, and think this is a gobbledy gook, you might want to get rid of Leviticus 23 where the Spirit of the Lord says this is an eternal feast to all generations. All in the ancient Hebrew tongue sorta means in the Gene's concordance--- ALL. So it it's OK with you, I will remember the day of MY atonement at the Cross with special solemnity. Mark the New Year and attach some willow branches on my booth along with remembrances of the day of Harvest and his dwelling among us. I will also bring a Succot offering to the Lord. Will I be harmed by all this? Probably not. Are these dead works? I don't think so... other than it Works so far. BUT IF you choose to do this, don't do it other than out of respect and honor, not out of religious obligation. Heck, you shouldn't even go to CHURCH that way.

Fall in August... not that bad

I had always said that if we could have the mild Illinois winters (mild by Dakota standards) and North Dakota Summers, cool, dry and 70s for highs and 50s for lows every day, life would be perfect climatologicaly speaking. We are NOT that far from that today... have hardly run the AC this summer and was out of town when it got hot. Our Electric bill is HALF what it was a year ago.

Why do these things always end up dead end in extortion?

 I have companies I go to that happen to be run by certain ethnic groups. If I want my car repaired, I will go to a Mexican repair shop. They just do better. If I want body work done, I go to an Anglo shop. They are well run. If I want landscaping done I hire the Local Hispanic guys, they cost more but they do a great job. If I want Pizza.. yup, Italian. If I want my house repaired I hire that Irish guy I know. He gets it done. If I want clothing made, a Korean guy I know does a great job, A local lady who does my clothing repairs is Chinese, When I need plumbing done, that Polish fellow from across town is the call I make. Now to be fair, this is only one guys experience. I don't believe for a minute that ethnicity has anything to do with it. They are just really good at what they do and I call them to get the things done I need done. IF I want Ribs, the place on west Madison in Chicago is where I go. If I want soul food, there is a place on the south side I frequent. I don't think Mexican Ribs even sounds good. SO, when I saw this article, I thought, OK, who then is this company? What do they have to commend them other than race for this work? What history is there? What competence have they displayed. That is how these decisions must be made, not by the color of their skin, but the competence they possess.

IF you wait ten years you will be ten years behind your calling. GO.

I am exhausted with people who question and disparage their situation (trapped, stuck, discouraged, done, sick of it all),,,, that kind of thing. YET, when I press them to ask them the key question, "What are you going to stop doing or start doing that will break you out of this cycle?". They get angry. They think I am being accusatory. I would ask that of my sons. I would ask that of my siblings. I would ask that of anyone who I care about. One person I know well said, "I feel like I'm at a dead end. I can't seem to make any progress. I have to figure out some way to get out of this." This person is not married. In their 20s. Could afford a couple tanks of gas. Has a vehicle. Owns some clothes. All this person needs to do is pick a direction on the compass they have always wished to go, and GO. Aimlessness is a disease and you can be aimless just staying put waiting for something to happen. Well, here's a truth, not all change ends up being improvement but this I guarantee, unless something changes, there is NO Chance for improvement. Zip. Nada. Stuck and Stasis are the same word. Get in the car and go.

I get it.

When it rains it pours for him. But looking at his handling of the Zimmerman trial..

Also, in this economy, the old people are the only ones who still have money.

THE YOUTH DEMOGRAPHIC: “Highly overrated.” NBC wants to replace Leno with someone younger and “edgier.” Only problem is, nobody watches those guys. They do watch Leno. Is there a broader lesson here?

This sounds exactly like Chicago Politics.

 Look at the crooks we keep electing. Here is a man who is violent, corrupt and incompetent. Zimbabwe used to be prosperous and free.. Now it is a dictatorship.. with the patina of democracy... SMH

Fooled again


Zig Ziglar Born To Win

Good for him

Good for him, he's 71, she's a physician and 42. Hope for old guys.... eh? Maggie will never leave his heart, I get that. But life is for the living and last he looked he's still alive.



I came home late after Church last night and sat up to watch Leno. I seldom do, but then Kristen Chenoweth (star of Wicked) was on. She did this parody making fun of Anthony Weiner. It's not dirty... but it is hilarious. She's a really good singer, I can spot opera training in a second in a voice. She was trained as one. Perhaps someday she'll go back. Enjoy the video, there is a short commercial you will have to sit thru.

Without comment, just sorrow

Evil Fruit of ISLAM

Worse TD Jakes has invited her to be part of a conference

She has never been afraid of HYPERBOLE. As horrible as this race crime was, about the same number people as were killed in one day on 9-11 by Muslims as black people have ever been lynched in the USA. 3500. Why does she do this? Same reason that Sharpton and Jackson do... because it gets people like me to have to get out the old Truth-O-Meter and set the record straight. What grieves me so is the low information people in society that are so easily drawn into this kind of mythology that it becomes institutional "facts". I saw recently on a friends page a story from a mad magazine type site that said that the leader of the NRA wanted to start owning black people again. From the comments, many believed this. We need truth folks, TRUTH. It will set you free.

Why we have insipid Churches

I do not agree with this writer. He seems to thing being PC and very careful not to offend is more important than speaking into a corruptible culture with the truth of God. Here's the money quote from this article:

Some will insist you should take a stand.

They speak of having the courage of one’s convictions, of how the Old Testament prophets never feared public opinion and that you can become a champion for this noble cause.

You aren’t a coward, are you? They will cite the Joshua passage: “Be strong and of good courage.”

The other side warns you against getting involved. You're a pastor of a church; you have constituents on both sides of this issue; the church doesn’t need any more enemies; and you have bigger fish to fry.

You are a gospel preacher, aren’t you? They will cite the Pauline command: “Preach the word.”

IF you are the pastor of a church and have constituents on BOTH SIDES of an obvious moral issue, then YOU ARE A POOR PASTOR. IF you come out against Gay Marriage and that offends some in your congregation, you have a weak congregation with badly discipled congregants.


You KNEW this was coming


Larry Tomzak shines the light of truth on this embarrassing practice

Give it away

Worked before

OH Lord, here we go again.

 WHY would ANYONE in ancient Jerusalem for the 40 years after Jesus died until the devastation in 70 AD have preserved this old piece of wood? AND THEN drag it running from the destruction that the Romans brought. I mean, they saw and knew HIM as alive. Why preserve this dead relic? I hates me some religion.



This is very sad.

 At this age range new household formations (getting married, buying or renting a home and having kids) should be happening. It's not. This isn't good news for the future.

Pretty Good Advise

I remember when Robert Frost Died in 1963, the year I graduated High School. This was our class motto and has been mine - and that makes all the difference

Thought  For The Day



Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Robert Frost 
1874 - 1963

One could go on, but you get the point, even if the media does not.
Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.

Okay how about pigs

getting close to the bottom of the slippery slope

I think I'll go and practice some scales now.

I was thinking about this when I passed a truck load of chickens on the way to market in Georgia.

People are really idiots.

Spiraling down, is the city headed for the same fate as Detroit?

I know this very (too) well.

 When government gets involved in making health care accessible and affordable, it becomes neither. This is a cumulative lesson the nation is about to learn... a painful one.

The ultimate altar call

If you are looking for the True Church of Jesus, here's a measurement that might help:

The true church of Jesus is marked by HIS Presence, not it's history or size. The true church of Jesus will be an accurate representation of who Jesus is, Bone of HIS bone, Flesh of HIS flesh.

This does not include having guards monitoring the holy chairs at the front so only the most privileged get to sit in them, kind of like getting into a good disco... if your names not on the list, the Door Keeper (usher) will usher you back with the unwashed. I actually saw the guards (ushers) do this in a large church a couple weeks ago. I shook my head.

Pastor Dan used to say that the Holiest parking places were the ones at the far end of the parking lot. If you truly are holy you will leave the ones near the door for the visitors. Here's the question, if you are going to measure your fellowship against an accurate Representation of Jesus, how do you measure up? HMMMM?
I wonder how this would work in certain parts of Chicago or Detroit or Cleveland or... you pick the city? We don't have a crime and violence problem, we have a cultural problem.
Congratulations to Hawaii and Alabama, just named the most honest states in America. The beverage company Honest Tea set up unmanned booths offering bottles of tea. A sign asked buyers to put a dollar per bottle in a collection box, on the honor system. On average, 92 percent of Americans paid. But only in Hawaii and Alabama did 100 percent pony up the dollar. The company’s CEO said it was reassuring to know that 92 percent of Americans will do the right thing, even when nobody’s watching. In fact, there was only one example of extreme dishonesty. When they were conducting the experiment in Washington, DC…somebody stole his bicycle. Well, don’t think of it as stealing. Think of it as “sharing the wealth.”

WOW... it happens to me too. Must be contagious. YIKES!


Moovvin on UP....

I wouldn't worry Mr Alwaleed,

your close personal friend in the White House will see to it Fracking stops in the USA to protect your interests. Anything for a brother, RIGHT?

The coach had put together the perfect team for the Chicago Bears. The only thing that was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn't find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl win.

Then one night while watching CNN he saw a war-zone scene in the West Bank. In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Israeli soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade
straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away. KABOOM!

He threw another hand-grenade 75 yards away, right into a chimney.

Then he threw another at a passing car going 90 mph.

"I've got to get this guy!" Coach said to himself. "He has the perfect arm!"

So, he brings him to the States and teaches him the great game of football. And the Bears go on to win the Super Bowl. The young man is hailed as the great hero of football, and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man wants is to call his Mother.

"Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl!"

"I don't want to talk to you, the old woman says." You are not my son!"

"I don't think you understand, Mother," the young man pleads. "I've won the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm here among thousands of my adoring fans."

"No! Let me tell you!" his mother retorts. "At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn't get raped!" The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says,...

"I will never forgive you for making us move to Chicago !!!!
