Used to be normative and civilized

Hungary’s parliament has approved a bill forcing large retailers to stay closed on Sundays, in a move critics say is yet another swipe at international investors.

Enjoyed watching Columbo. For those of you unfamiliar with this excellent series, remember these basic rules.

1. Suspect kills victim and hides evidence.

2.Columbo shows up in rinky dink car and frumpled coat. Starts poking around.

3. Columbo plays idiot by asking the suspect seemingly stupid questions. Usually says 'Oh just one more thing...' as he has his hand on the door knob about to leave.

4. Suspect starts to get annoyed with Columbo constantly showing up during his favorite diversions and smugly tells him he has no evidence and to kindly go away. Suspect has been lulled into false sense of superiority.

5. Columbo finds incriminating evidence.

6. Columbo confronts suspect and gives him a minute by minute play of the crime in surgical detail, usually ending with a witty comment at the end.

7. Suspect grudgingly admits the crime and applauds the detective's cunning before being led away in handcuffs.

This is really worth looking at.

About Social Justice

I reject the concept of Social Justice as a goal. It's a tool used to create tension, anger, jealousy, resentment, and division between people. The last national leader able to use social justice as a lever to achieve power with greatest success was Adolf Hitler. When you see Black Lives Matter, I see Juden-Hass The cultural revolution in China was started as a social justice movement. While there are things in our national culture needing change, social justice is a dangerous illusion.

Friedrich Hayek showed, social justice is a mirage — the utopia toward which radical egalitarian ideologues claim to be leading us does not exist, and can never exist, simply because human society requires social order and all social orders involve hierarchy. Once you realize that “equality” is a false goal, you realize that what progressives are actually doing is destroying the existing social order — democracy, economic liberty, the rule of law — with the intention to replace it with a social order controlled by a political elite, with less real liberty for the “masses” and no rule of law to protect the rights of individuals.

It is amazing to me that any American would let these hateful demagogues appealing to prejudice persuade us to embrace their “social justice” swindle, a dishonest scam by which a power-hungry elite seek to defraud us all of our true inheritance, liberty.

Truth about the government is hard, and ignored by most liberals.…/obama-one-man-revolution-vi…

the Spirit of Poverty in this season.

It's a deeply rooted spirit. It has little to do with money. It has everything to do with who you are, your heart, your temperament, your personal baggage, the strongholds in your life, the lies you have bought into, the people you surround yourself with, the influences you allow in and your innate stinginess or generosity. You can be a billionaire and have a spirit of poverty. You can be homeless on the street and have a spirit of poverty. BUT the most telling sign of a spirit of poverty is the unwillingness to be generous to others with EVERYTHING you have. Money, Time, Credit, Sunshine, Love, Compassion, Patience and a host of other attributes those who live in abundance of heart have by accident.
Show me a poor person (like Ebeneezer Scrooge or like the person living hand to mouth in a tenement somewhere), it's the same spirit. And at this time of Christmas, it's time to break the back of the spirit of poverty. It's not about the offerings, tithes, seed or giving you give to your church. That's one of the strongholds. It's much much bigger than that. A by product might be that you give to a ministry, but if it comes because you believe there is a big payoff later.. you kid yourself.
To be released from the spirit of poverty takes an encounter with all the Ghosts of your life that haunt you. It is the result of a worldview and mindset that the devil delights in you having. IF you really want freedom from poverty and it's spirit, you start with YOU. IF you have no skin in the game, you can't be set free from poverty.
Read this Bible story and think about it.. Poverty starts with dependance on other peoples money, giving, generosity and free stuff. Rich people are as bad with this as poor, but to get out of the spirit of poverty mindset they must revise thinking:
David Builds an Altar unto the Lord
1 Samuel 24:18-25
On that day Gad went to David and said to him, “Go up and build an altar to the Lord on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.” 19So David went up, as the Lord had commanded through Gad. 20When Araunah looked and saw the king and his officials coming toward him, he went out and bowed down before the king with his face to the ground.
21Araunah said, “Why has my lord the king come to his servant?”
“To buy your threshing floor,” David answered, “so I can build an altar to the Lord, that the plague on the people may be stopped.”
22Araunah said to David, “Let my lord the king take whatever he wishes and offer it up. Here are oxen for the burnt offering, and here are threshing sledges and ox yokes for the wood. 23Your Majesty, Araunahd gives all this to the king.” Araunah also said to him, “May the Lord your God accept you.”
24But the king replied to Araunah, “No, I insist on paying you for it. I will not sacrifice to the Lord my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing.”
So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen and paid fifty shekelse of silver for them. 25David built an altar to the Lord there and sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. Then the Lord answered his prayer in behalf of the land, and the plague on Israel was stopped.
Here is the question, would the plague have been stopped if David had taken the gift and offered it to the Lord?? I think not.. But you need to think about the plague of the spirit of poverty you face and ask yourself the question. Do I have skin in the game?

Righteousness = generosity

Wealth is better in righteous hands. God won't prosper those he can't trust or he will prosper the unrighteous as a placeholder till the righteous are ready.
This is awesome.

Pivot TIME

As of today the days start getting longer. That is something to look forward to. Happy first day of winter. Nice to see family and friends give gifts eat good food. The start of a new year. But as my German friends always used to say "we invented Christmas" and they did. But there's always BC before Christmas and AD always dieting. Christmas is really a cultural pivot point. The reality is there is no biblical evidence for any of the disciples of Jesus celebrating his birth in the first century. Not even so much as a birthday cake.. I'm no bah humbug I just recognize this holiday for what it is. Turn of the year.

The one who loves money is never satisfied with money, Nor the one who loves wealth with big profits. More smoke. The more loot you get, the more looters show up. And what fun is that—to be robbed in broad daylight? Hard and honest work earns a good night’s sleep, Whether supper is beans or steak. But a rich man’s belly gives him insomnia. Here’s a piece of bad luck I’ve seen happen: A man hoards far more wealth than is good for him And then loses it all in a bad business deal. He fathered a child but hasn’t a cent left to give him. He arrived naked from the womb of his mother; He’ll leave in the same condition—with nothing. This is bad luck, for sure—naked he came, naked he went. So what was the point of working for a salary of smoke? All for a miserable life spent in the dark?
(Ecclesiastes 5:10-17)
