Ross Trump and Donald Perot

When was the last time a bunch of stupid Republicans supported a hateful rich man in a third party candidacy, split the conservative vote, and got a Clinton elected?

1992

Here we go again.

Quote of the Day

"What is an idol?  It is anything more important to you than God, anything that absorbs your heart and imagination more than God, anything you seek to give you what only God can give. A counterfeit god is anything so central and essential to your life that, should you lose it, your life would feel hardly worth living. An idol has such a controlling position in your heart that you can spend most of your passion and energy, your emotional and financial resources, on it without a second thought. It can be family and children, or career and making money, or achievement and critical acclaim, or saving “face” and social standing. It can be a romantic relationship, peer approval, competence and skill, secure and comfortable circumstances, your beauty or your brains, a great political or social cause, your morality and virtue, or even success in the Christian ministry. When your meaning in life is to fix someone else’s life, we may call it “codependency” but it is really idolatry. An idol is whatever you look at and say, in your heart of hearts, “If I have that, then I’ll feel my life has meaning, then I’ll know I have value, then I’ll feel significant and secure.”

As Ferguson Burns

The African-Americans I know are just like me.  They believe that when thugs of any color steal, assault police officers... And end up dead... That it's a proper outcome.  It's an outcome that makes their children and property safer.  No one wants their kids endangered by such individuals.

And it's an insult to these same African-Americans that a liberal government is treating the blacks presently destroying Ferguson, Missouri as if they were children... As if they simply can't help but riot. 

I think it's ironic and instructive that these rioters are imitating the deceased 18-year-old Michael Brown in that they are stealing and assaulting police officers.  They know they will not end up in the city morgue because a liberal government will order the police to show restraint, even if they and firefighters are assaulted and threatened with deadly force.

But the true criminals are the haters, the inciters... the Al Sharptons who provoke violence among the ignorant instead of promoting civil, lawful behavior and a correct understanding of what happened in Ferguson back in August. 

But the only time that Al and his ilk will serve, is time before a television camera.   

But I guess I'm just a softie... I can't help but feel sorry for the next Michael Brown... The next ignorant punk that is raised with no respect for the rule of law.  But hey!  If he survives, America just might elect him president!

A Man Needs A Shed


Neil Young sang "A Man Needs a Maid," but if rumors are true, he didn't care for maids himself.  But having the y chromosome... albeit a confused y... He certainly would appreciate my new shed.

It is 10 feet by 16 feet, and is made of treated lumber... And, it's the biggest and best shed in the neighborhood.  HA!

I've Dug a Potato or Two


You no doubt ask, "Does it take a man to grow potatoes such as these?"  Oh yes... yes it does.  And he must be a mighty man... Virile, robust... Yet strangely humble.

When digging potatoes, it's best to wear boots like these... Preferably with bibs that are three sizes too big.  Bibs are a garment meant to get lost in.

If It Walks Like a Duck

We've all heard the media clobbering Phil Robertson by saying he made ant-gay comments in an interview with GQ.

Christians know this is a lie.

Phil didn't make anti-gay comments, but rather talked about what the Bible calls sin.

We've all heard gay activists say they want Phil fired for being ignorant and hateful.

Christians know this isn't what they really want.

Gay activists want Christians punished when they talk about what the Bible says about homosexuality... They want Christians censored like they are in Canada.

Phil was brave and spoke out against sin. 

The media was cowardly and didn't admit what they really believe... That the Bible has No Authority to define sin... That it hasn't the Authority to suggest how we should live.
