Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
Proverbs 1:8 (NIV)
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NIV)
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “Do not commit adultery,” “Do not murder,” “Do not steal,” “Do not covet,” and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
Romans 13:8-10 (NIV)

(09/22/2021) What Can You Do? This is about US healthcare vs. Canadian. Hint: ours is far, far superior. Almost all medical innovation, be it treatment methods, drugs or medical equipment, comes from the USA - well over 75% in all categories, less than 25% for the rest of the world. Yet the Democrats would like to destroy our system and socialize it, destroying all incentives for innovation. Do they have the slightest notion of the negative impact that would have, not just for Americans but for the rest of the world, as well? Do they care? I've reached the point where I believe that the only things they care about are power and feeling morally superior. What they advocate may be devastating to those impacted, but they sure feel superior to anyone who disagrees with them.

(09/15/2021) Clay Clark – Reawaken America Tour: “I’m Reawakening America With The Help Of Jesus, General Flynn, Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, Bobby Kennedy Jr…” To be honest, I didn't have a clue who Clay Clark was, but he has a microphone and I've been praying that more such people to get up and publicly advocate for revival. This isn't exactly what I had in mind, but it is a start.

(09/10/2021) America at the Crossroads — These are the Times That Try Men’s Souls. They certainly are.
(09/08/2021) NFL will allow social justice phrases on helmets this season. Naturally they all lean left. Remember when the corporate would was supposedly right-wing? To be fair, that has always been a bit of a myth. Corporations tend to favor big government - as long as big government favors them. And so government has. Regulations, for example, always favor the big and already in business over the new and the small. Trump started turning that around. Some corporations liked that, most did not.
(09/02/2021) Do Americans Have What it Takes to Fight Pure Evil? First, we have to be willing to recognize it and name it when we see it.
(08/25/2021) Cancel Culture and Wokeness Will Destroy Our Country. Is there anyone less tolerant that someone who is "woke?" And yet they imagine all who disagree with them to be the intolerant ones. This kind of thinking is a direct result of our totally failing education system.
(08/18/2021) Province Sees 'Horrifying' Number of Syphilis Infections. This is Alberta. Maybe some lifestyle changes are in order - a more biblical lifestyle, perhaps. Are such solutions ever offered? Rarely.
(08/17/2021) The woke never sleep. Should AA change a reference to "men and women" to "people?" I'd have no problem if they'd written it "people" in the first place. But surrenders to demands like this only leads to more demands and more absurd demands. And the result is a gradual shifting of our culture in the wrong direction.
(07/27/2021) How to get life skills in college. There have been a number of articles regarding a survey where 81% of recent college grads wish they had been taught more "life skills." Well, I certainly have to agree that they are sorely lacking in such skills. And colleges rarely provide an environment that is conducive to learning those skills. But most of us learn those skills outside of the classroom. Isn't this a big problem with students today - they expect to be spoon fed rather than interact with the real world and learn stuff on their own?
(07/20/2021) Budapest Diary. Quite interesting, actually. Among other things, Hungary cares a lot more about Western Civilization than doe the (current) USA.
(07/20/2021) The American descent into madness. I've been calling it insanity. Either term will do.
(07/19/2021) The 'Silent Majority' Is Rapidly Becoming the 'Angry Majority.' The silent majority was a little too silent. The won in the short run but lost in the long. Let us hope that we really do become an angry majority, because angry people are not going to keep silent.
(07/17/2021) Shapes of things: Ministry of truth edition. We have entered very dangerous territory. The Biden administration is employing a lot of tactics that are SOP for totalitarian regimes.

(07/13/2021) Thugs on dirt bikes violently beat US postal worker in Brooklyn in broad daylight as he made his rounds. You have to wonder why people even think of doing such things, much less actually doing them. Lack or moral education? Possibly. Here is more: Video shows woman beating McDonald's employees allegedly over refusal to mix slushie flavors. Good grief.
(07/12/2021) Jen Psaki and Biden White House Refuse to Blame Communism for Mass Protests in Cuba. Can't be communism because communism has been such a success everywhere it has been tried. Must be Trump. And sure enough: CNN Reporter Blames Trump During WH Presser for Massive Protests in Cuba Against Brutal Marxist Regime.
(07/11/2021) ODNI Appears To Photoshop Blind Man, Woman In Wheelchair Into ‘Multicultural’ Stock Photo For Diversity Report. It is rather annoying that a government that demands diversity of the rest of us has to fake their own diversity. "Appears" should not be used as a qualifier - the fact is that they did so and it is obvious.

(07/09/2021) Defund NPR: Paper Denounces The Declaration Of Independence. I realize that the Democrats have the media on their side. But is there any reason for the GOP to go along with spending vast sums of federal dollars to promote the Democrat's agenda, and very little to promote the conservative agenda?
(07/09/2021) Fifth graders will have access to condoms in Chicago elementary schools next month. One parent reacts: 'Oh my God ... they are kids.' More on the subject. It should be noted that a major focus of big government types is to minimize the consequences of bad behavior, often even to reward it. The result is a rise in bad behavior. You would think that proponents would learn from experience, but you would be wrong. This program is going to cause a great deal of harm and those that are behind it will accept no responsibility for the tragic results. Rather, it is likely that they will demand even more of the same.
(07/08/2021) Condoms Available Starting in 5th Grade in Chicago’s Public Schools. This is mandatory, system-wide. Note that the left never has a problem imposing their values without consent. Seems we had a revolution over that sort of thing.
(07/04/2021) Ignorant and Ungrateful Georgetown Students Ashamed to be American on 4th of July. To be fair, that is what they are taught and they are too young and immature to look around, observe, and form their own opinions. Some will grow up. Sadly, many will not.
(07/04/2021) Hanson: Wokeism is distracting us from facing our real problems. Well, isn't that the whole purpose? The Left doesn't really have solutions to our many problems, so the idea is to distract and turn attention to areas where they do claim to have solutions. They don't, but the essential first step is to make sure that they (the left) are not held responsible for the real problems that we do face.
