That's comedian John Branyan (Aaron Carpenter) with Peter.
Because of Biblical prophecy, I do not worry about Israel. But I do worry about what will happen to the United States if she abandons Israel.
As America's spiritual offenses continue to pile up, I wonder what happens to a sin-embracing nation that becomes politically irrelevant to God's purposes.

From the White House: "Hamas' continued rocket attacks into Israel must cease if the violence is to stop. (Brilliant) Hamas must end its terrorist activities if it wishes to play a role in the future of the Palestinian people.
"The United States urges Israel to avoid civilian casualties as it targets Hamas in Gaza."
Notice that the U.S. Government does not suggest that Hamas should "avoid civilian casualties." That's because Hamas routinely attacks women and children, cannot be reasoned with, and will stop attacking Israel only when every Jew in Israel is exterminated. Excuse me... Tortured and exterminated.
Note to Israel: You are at war and have been since your inception. You are at war with an army of animals that cannot be placated. Your restraint only encourages them. If the Mexican government was lobbing rockets into San Diego, the U.S. Government would carpet bomb the offending provinces... Because the American people would insist. Neither the U.S. government nor its people would put up with the crap you are dealing with.
So flip-off the U.S. and the United Nations, find yourself a Joshua, and fight your war with any means necessary to make your people safe.

She said in high school she was self conscious about her height, and tried to walk a little bit stoop shouldered. On imdb her height is officially listed at 5'11".
She was born in 1933 and was the best Catwoman ever... Period... End of story... Because she was the most beautiful... And I was heavily into puberty.
Oh, you can have Lee Meriwether, Eartha Kitt, Halle Berry, and the really terrible Michelle Pfeiffer. Give me Julie Newmar.

Barack Obama’s choice of a prominent evangelical minister to deliver the invocation at his inauguration is a conciliatory gesture toward social conservatives who opposed him in November, but it is drawing fierce challenges from a gay rights movement that — in the wake of a gay marriage ban in California — is looking for a fight.
The editor of the Washington Blade, Kevin Naff, called the choice “Obama’s first big mistake.”
“His presence on the inauguration stand is a slap in the faces of the millions of GLBT voters who so enthusiastically supported him,” Naff wrote, referring to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people. “This tone-deafness to our concerns must not be tolerated. We have just endured eight years of endless assaults on our dignity and equality from a president beholden to bigoted conservative Christians. The election was supposed to have ended that era. It appears otherwise.”
Yeah, that's a shame. I'm giving even odds that Warren will get booed at the inauguration. I just wish he would pray something that would earn a good booing. He could pray for Obama's conversion to authentic Christianity. He could pray for the unborn. He could pray for all Gays to repent... That might do it! Hey! He surprised us at the Saddleback Debate when he asked Obama when the unborn deserved protection!
I had to look-up GLBT and ended up learning some new words:
Gynephilia: The romantic and/or sexual attraction to adult females. (I've had a bad case of this for about 45 years.)
Autogynephilia: Refers to "a man's paraphilic tendency to be sexually aroused by the thought or image of himself as a woman. (I never think about that... Though I'm sure I'd be hot.)
Apotemnophilia: The erotic interest in being or looking like an amputee. It should not be confused with acrotomophilia, which is the erotic interest in people who are amputees. When experienced very strongly, some people with apotemnophilia come to feel discontented with their bodies and want to actually remove an otherwise healthy limb, a condition called Body Integrity Identity Disorder. Some apotemnophiles seek surgeons to perform an amputation or purposefully injure a limb in order to force emergency medical amputation. (Dang! No, I need all my parts.)
There are some messed up people out there. After reading all that stuff I'm feeling pretty good about myself... It's good to be relatively normal.
MoveOn is asking for suggestions from its members about what their "big goals for 2009" should be. Just a few suggestions from the faithful on the far-Left:
1. Decriminalize drug laws and other mandatory minimum sentences!
2. Hold Bush and Cheney responsible for their war crimes.
3. Undoing the damage done to women's reproductive rights (What?)
4. Union Jobs in a Green Economy financed by military cuts (my favorite)
5. Fix the current economic crisis (Brilliant)
6. Total civil rights for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people
7. Legalize Gay Marriages in all states!
8. Bring back the Fairness Doctrine
9. Zero Population Growth
10. access to abortion by doctors, poor women, nationally & internationally
11. Peace in Iraq and Afghanistan, Israel and Palestine (great idea!)
12. ending the racist War on Drugs and War on Terror
13. Ban all guns in America (What guns?)
14. Get rid of nuclear weapons.
It reads like a wish list or Christmas list for the reality-challenged. But with Obama in the White House and the Dems firmly in control of Congress... These MoveOn guys may accurately reflect the soul of our federal government.
I thought of posting an Enya video, but even this shlockey blog has some standards. So instead I'm posting an Enya song from Celtic Woman that I saw on a PBS Fund Drive which features three anonymous babes in formals. (I did not contribute.)

The auto bailout bill, which passed the House in a 237-170 vote on Wednesday, was defeated in a 52-35 procedural vote in the Senate late Thursday night after negotiations between automakers, the UAW, and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) fell apart.
“As far as the failure of last night, it solely lies on UAW,” Coburn told CNSNews.com. “All we asked was, ‘Just give us a date at which you will have competitive wage rates. We will put it in and that’s what you will have to meet.’ They would not move. They would not renegotiate their contract with GM as far as wage rates.”
Coburn was referring to an amendment crafted by Corker that would have required the auto makers to reduce their labor costs to a level equal to the salaries paid by non-unionized foreign auto companies operating in the United States, firms such as Nissan, Toyota and Honda.
Yes, I am shocked that the United Auto Workers would rather take my money than lower their wages and make the Big 3 competitive.
I heard on The Peter Heck Show that the Big 3 auto workers make, counting benefits, 70+ dollars per hour, while Americans working in Toyota, Nissan and other non-unionized American auto plants make 40 dollars per hour.
So I'm wondering how I'm going to work up some compassion, and support a bailout, so that the UAW guys can continue making more money than I make.
My job, that required four years of college, pays (I figure) close to what the Toyota and Nissan guys make, maybe a little more... Or possibly less. Over the years, the hospital where I work has cut certain benefits and done its best to keep our wages at a rate that allows us to remain in the black. We have no union and our hospital competes for customers, and professional and unskilled workers, with hospitals and businesses around us.
I don't know what the answer is for the Big 3. But I know they can't compete while paying what they pay their workers. If the UAW continues its irrational stance, then bankruptcy will certainly follow at some point, and I do not see the logic of prolonging the idiocy by strapping our taxpayers with a bailout.

In life many of us Christians have tried to preach and have tried to believe that the life of a believer is all joy and no pain. That isn’t so. And we’ve tried to believe that for those people who don’t know the Lord as we do, their life is all pain and no joy, and that isn’t so. You know what the difference is (and it’s taken me a long time to learn it)? For them, the pain is fundamental and the joy is superficial because it won’t last. For us, the pain is superficial and the joy is fundamental.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Some same-sex marriage supporters are urging people to "call in gay" Wednesday to show how much the country relies on gays and lesbians, but others question whether it's wise to encourage skipping work given the nation's economic distress.
Just a comment: I have never been married. I don't date. I'm not tough looking. I have small hands. I have skinny wrists and legs. I have blond hair and I'm a tenor. And even if I had two broken legs and a collapsed lung, I would have dragged myself into work today.
The maintenance guys would have talked.

To discern that natural virtues antagonize surrender to God, is to bring our soul into the centre of its greatest battle. It is the good that hates the best, and the higher up you get in the scale of the natural virtues, the more intense is the opposition to Jesus Christ.

The last time I filled up my gas tank I felt a little guilty. With gasoline prices plummeting, I wonder how the oil and gas workers are going to keep their jobs.
And it's bad news for the rest of us, too.
Throughout his run for President, Mr. Obama argued the (oil) industry deserved special taxation on its "excess" earnings. He planned to use the proceeds to fund an "emergency" round of $1,000 rebate checks for families. "It isn't right that oil companies are making record profits when ordinary Americans are going into debt trying to pay rising energy costs," he said.
If something isn't done fast, that $1000 dollar check won't accompany the big tax cut we'll be receiving in the spring.
Left unexplained was why the oil companies suddenly decided to stop profiteering, or manipulating commodity prices, or whatever it was they were supposedly doing.
The obvious problem is that the oil companies are just too nice for their own good. Those sweethearts have lowered the price of gas so much that there is almost nothing left to tax.
But as we all know, Barack Obama is a genius in economics and I'm overwhelmingly confident that he can... Yes he can!... Set these oil guys on the right track... And bail them out so the rest of us can get our $1000 dollar checks.

After a couple minutes I noticed the baby.
It may be time for me to start dating again. It's been six long, long, pain free years and I've wondered if there is an Indiana Statute addressing common law virginity. My nephew, the lawyer, would know... But being a lawyer, he would try and charge me for the information.
I think the restlessness began when I switched from walking to running for exercise. I run 2 miles at least 3 times per week... Not bad for 54. My theory is that as the heart gets stronger and the blood flow increases... ... ... Maybe I should stop now before it gets ugly.
There is little dignity in being a middle-aged male and single, and what dignity there is can easily be extinguished by dating... Especially when every candidate is way more mature than you are. Most women my age have had a real man with a good job and wouldn't be interested in marrying the winner of the Danny Bonaduce Emotional Maturity Award. My dream is to find a widow whose husband beat her... I surely would look good to her, and hey!... I'm a good actor and can misrepresent myself as almost any one's dream come true if the engagement period is short enough.
I've got my line ready: "Hey, I was thinking about asking you out, but then I remembered I was busy that night." Smooth! Cards on the table... shuffled and dealt.
One good humiliation should put my package back in the sexual cedar chest where it belongs... Sort of like when Spock went back to Vulcan for "congress" and got jilted. -Love that episode.
I'll probably take a year and think about it.

Last year I posted about the amazing inventions, technological advancements, and scientific achievements of Israel's Jews.
Last week in Mumbai, India, 10 guys from Pakistan showcased the best that Islam has to offer.
It's really not much of a contest. It's like Einstein and Stephen Hawking teaming up in Robotics Competition against Gomer Pyle and Jethro Bodine. And it's inherently unfair that a Jewish scientist can develop one new microchip after another, while a Muslim terrorist can blow himself up only once... Just one of those little inequities in vocational pursuits.
When you live in physical and intellectual squalor, it's easy to hate the guy in the big house on the hill. Jealousy and hate are easy... Improving yourself is hard.
In Mumbai, 2 of the 10 terrorists tortured and killed a 29 year old rabbi and his wife.
Here is a quote from Dennis Prager...
"...it is exquisitely fitting that the same week the murders in Mumbai were taking place, the United Nations General Assembly passed six more anti-Israel resolutions. As it has for decades, the U.N. has again sanctioned hatred for a good and decent country as small on the map of the world as the Chabad House is on the map of Mumbai."
The world is at war, and we just elected a guy that can't see it.

This just in from IowaHawk:
WASHINGTON DC - Ending weeks of speculation and rumors, President-Elect Barack Obama today named Bill Clinton to join his incoming administration as President of the United States, where he will head the federal government's executive branch."I am pleased that Bill Clinton has agreed to come out of retirement to head up this crucial post in my administration," said Obama. "He brings a lifetime of previous executive experience as Governor of Arkansas and President of the United States, and has worked closely with most of the members of my Cabinet."
"I am gratified that the President-Elect has entrusted me with this important responsibility," said Clinton. "I'm looking forward to getting back behind, and under, the Oval Office desk again. As I have told the President-Elect, I pledge to do whatever I can to serve his historic administration by making sure that none of that b__s__ he talked about during the campaign will ever see the light of day. Americans can rest assured that he will be safely confined to the East Wing, as far away as possible from any potentially dangerous office equipment or nuclear buttons."
"Let's face it, it's obvious I'm in way over my head here," explained Obama. "Anyone paying attention knows I am a disaster waiting to happen, and who can blame them? I mean, just look at the stock market. That's why I think it's in the best interest of the country that I hand over the reins to people who, whatever their ethical shortcomings, at least have a faint clue about what they're doing. Come on, man. I've got a 401-k, too."
Obama also announced that he had accepted his own appointment of himself as an Assistant Undersecretary in the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
"It's a fairly low-stress job that I'm reasonably qualified for," said Obama. "I really can't do much damage there, and it will give me plenty of free time for Oprah specials. Plus work on my next autobiography and re-election campaign."
This is great news. At first I thought it was political satire, but there's just too much truth wedged in there to be satire.

"People hold onto these images of father, mother, husband, wife... Again for the same reason; because they seem to provide some firm ground. But there's no wife there. What does that mean... A wife... A husband... A son? A baby holds your hands, and then suddenly, there's this huge man lifting you off the ground... And then he's gone. Where's that son?"

It's traditional at this time of the year to take a few moments and list a few things for which we are thankful.
I am thankful that I get to experience the further decay of my body, as my lonely and solitary existence is now pressed against the landscape of another cruel Indiana winter. I am thankful for the illusion of friendships and the loss of hearing that quiets the laughter behind my back. I am thankful for what's left of my retirement savings and that my acne is now limited to my buttocks. I am thankful for ibuprofen and that the odd discoloration on my lower lip is probably just a cold sore.

Yes, as a public service, each month Malott's Blog describes one perverted act that is, well... Just wrong, even in the marriage bed. Who better to make these judgements?
Pornography in the Bedroom
I went to a Christian School... Milligan College... and one day in Humanities Class the philosophy professor said that any act in the Marriage Bed that went beyond simple sexual intercourse, was perversion.
Poor Mrs. Professor.
However, twice in my adult life I have been shocked to learn that church-going married couples that I knew and respected used X-Rated Movies in their bedroom to inflame their desire for each other and enhance their love-making.
"But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart." Matthew 5:28
Case closed. I don't know what it is like for women, but men should avoid porn as if it were plague... Because it is. Marriage doesn't make pornography OK any more than it makes getting drunk with your spouse OK. And ladies, if your man takes you after watching porn, he isn't making love with you.
Q&A... Where the venerable Malott warmly responds to the questions of young couples.
Stan asks: "Mr Malott, if porn brings my wife and me closer together, isn't that a good thing?"
Malott answers: Stan, you make a good point. When you get to Hell, send me a post card.
Julie asks: "Mr Malott, I have trouble feeling amorous. But watching pornography makes me feel uninhibited and daring."
Malott answers: That's because you're a slut, Julie. Get some therapy.
I hope this was helpful!

Ever since Proposition 8 passed in California making Gay Marriage illegal, Gay activists have had their panties in a bunch.
Blacks and Mormons have been the main targets of the gay activists’ anger. Seventy percent of blacks voted against gay marriage in California, so racial epithets were hurled at blacks in Los Angeles — not in black neighborhoods, by the way.
Blacks who just happened to be driving through Westwood, near UCLA, were accosted in their cars and, in addition to being denounced, were warned, “You better watch your back.”
Up until now homosexuals have gotten along just fine without the right to marry... Going along their merry way, sodomizing and fellating to their hearts' content. California even provided them rights and benefits under domestic partnership laws.
But that's not what it's about, is it...
And, Leftists don't accept losing... Even when they lose.
The California Supreme Court voted 6 to 1 on Wednesday to review legal challenges to Proposition 8.
I think we know where this is headed. Millions of people can go to the polls and make their choice, but the will of the people doesn't mean much as long as there is a tyrannical activist in a black robe somewhere willing to thwart it.
Does this surprise anyone?

Cross burnings. Schoolchildren chanting "Assassinate Obama." Black figures hung from nooses. Racial epithets scrawled on homes and cars.
From California to Maine, police have documented a range of alleged crimes, from vandalism and vague threats to at least one physical attack. Insults and taunts have been delivered by adults, college students and second-graders.
There have been "hundreds" of incidents since the election, many more than usual, said Mark Potok, director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate crimes.
Potok, who is white, said he believes there is "a large subset of white people in this country who feel that they are losing everything they know, that the country their forefathers built has somehow been stolen from them."
Grant Griffin, a 46-year-old white Georgia native, expressed similar sentiments: "I believe our nation is ruined and has been for several decades and the election of Obama is merely the culmination of the change.
Let's consider a different Obama... An Obama that believes in a strong defense and celebrates the American soldier... An Obama that believes we should strictly enforce immigration laws and protect our borders... An Obama that denounces Acorn and promises to use his Justice Department to prosecute any and all who would undermine our elections... An Obama that denounces Judicial Tyranny and promises judges who respect the Constitution and the will of the people... An Obama that champions traditional marriage and family values... And Obama that champions personal responsibility... An Obama that champions capitalism, free markets, and free enterprise.
This black man would have won every state.
But the ultra-liberal Obama represents the antithesis of all these ideas. That's why so many good people are saying that we have lost our country.
I remember when Republicans were begging for a Condoleeza Rice candidacy.
It's not about Obama's race. It's the Obama Culture that frightens so many.
"...from vandalism and vague threats to at least one physical attack."
One physical attack!?! How shocking! Needless to say, if McCain had been elected... Events would have dwarfed the incidents mentioned above.

He sees justification... and He loves." --Michael Easley

The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something.
Proper books, recording his sordid associates, his cowardly voting record, his astonishingly militant commitment to unrestricted abortion and his blundering trip to Africa, are little-read and hard to find.
If you can believe that this undistinguished and conventionally Left-wing machine politician is a sort of secular saviour, then you can believe anything. He plainly doesn’t believe it himself. His cliche-stuffed, PC clunker of an acceptance speech suffered badly from nerves. It was what you would expect from someone who knew he’d promised too much and that from now on the easy bit was over.
He needn’t worry too much. From now on, the rough boys and girls of America’s Democratic Party apparatus, many recycled from Bill Clinton’s stained and crumpled entourage, will crowd round him, to collect the rich spoils of his victory and also tell him what to do, which is what he is used to.
Forget the Cold War, or even the Iraq War. The United States, having for the most part a deeply conservative people, had until now just about stood out against many of the mistakes which have ruined so much of the rest of the world.
Suspicious of welfare addiction, feeble justice and high taxes, totally committed to preserving its own national sovereignty, unabashedly Christian in a world part secular and part Muslim, suspicious of the Great Global Warming panic, it was unique.
And now the US, like Britain before it, has begun the long slow descent into the Third World. How sad. Where now is our last best hope on Earth?
Well Peter... Even stupid people can wake up... Though it may take a depression. America may be on life support, but we're not dead yet. Somtimes it takes a Carter to pave the way for a Reagan.

Tsofah has an interesting - and infuriating - post about the history of the Jewish Temples and the claims of certain Palestinian Officials... Though "official" is a gracious description of these persons.
I left a comment and toyed with combining the words moron and Muslim... Neither Morslims nor Musrons sounded quite right... So I used the word idiotic instead.
When I was a little boy I knew where to find the two blue boxes. I knew if I went to my parent's bedroom... opened their chest of drawers... and if I looked underneath my father's underwear... there they would be. In one navy blue box was a military medal symbolic of a sailor's inability to dodge flying shrapnel from an exploding Japanese suicide plane. In the other box was a medal symbolic of a young Hoosier farm boy's courage and devotion to duty.
When I was in high school the youth group from my church came to our house and my dad gave a talk about the war. The gist of his story was that when the bullets and the bombs begin to fly there are no atheists in the U.S. Navy. He did a great job which kind of surprised me a little because I didn't really think of Dad as a public speaker. Anyway, as a visual aid he passed around his Purple Heart. While my friends were looking at it I cornered Dad in the kitchen and said, "Dad, let me go get your Bronze Star and pass it around. That's a much neater medal." He shook his head, and without even looking at me he answered, "No no, that wouldn't be the thing to do."
The reason why I love this story about Dad so much - is that in this entire world there is only one person to whom that Bronze Star means more than it does to me. There is only one person who is prouder of that Bronze Star than I am... And that person is my father.
I don't know what makes a man so humble. Maybe it's just his upbringing and his nature. Then again, maybe it's because he saw friends blown up... and others burned horribly... and he knew that they had given more than he had. And maybe in his mind that made passing his Bronze Star around the room the wrong thing to do.
Well Dad is 84 now, and a couple years ago my mother put her foot down and got both medals out from under his underwear, framed them, and hung them on the wall along with a picture of Dad in his uniform. It makes a fine display. I sometimes look at that young man in the picture and wonder what he thought when the bombs began to fly, and what courage it took to stand his ground and do his duty.
And I think of all those young boys... in all those wars. God bless them all.

This video is very revealing... Especially the 2nd woman interviewed...
I saw Carl Cameron on The O'Reilly Factor when he reported the anonymous criticism of Governor Palin. I think these two pompous, sexist asses, Cameron and O'Reilly, should be ashamed of themselves. This kind of cowardly anonymous trashing is so unfair and leaves the governor with no dignified way to defend herself... And the fact it was reported taints Cameron and O'Reilly. These two little men who have accomplished much less than the governor, recklessly helped propagate rumors about a good woman who tirelessly gave her all to the campaign and energized the Republican base.
I chose not to believe the stories, because they didn't make sense. But they still made me doubt her... At least for awhile. It's just not fair that one disgruntled campaign worker can anonymously trash Palin, and it's unprofessional and irresponsible for Cameron and O'Reilly to report it.
And who should you believe? Some faceless, nameless phantom who could have any number of prejudices or agendas... Or the people who know her best and are willing to go to bat for her... On the record.

I discovered this comment from "Grammy" buried down a few posts... And I wanted to post it here because it represents my feelings very well:
I love George W. Bush. He's spent way too much of my money, and I wish he hadn't done that, so he's not perfect, but I love the man. I cannot imagine the burden of information and responsibility that he has awakened to every day since 9/11. I suspect that he has been privy to much national security information that would vindicate many of his unpopular decisions. We would all probably be horrified if we woke up to a national security briefing every day and knew what he knows about threats against America. It is not an accident that we haven't experienced another attack like 9/11. I have never heard him either defend himself or launch derisive attacks against those who ridicule him. He is always stoically silent, and it's probably cost him a lot of popularity. George Bush has personal discipline, integrity and courage and that's why I love George W. Bush. I wish I could be around to see how history treats him.
The aroma of the burning leaves took me back to my childhood, before burning laws, when you were allowed to rake your leaves and burn them in your driveway or along the road. Fall was my favorite time of the year as a child, with high school football and crisp teperatures - and the smell of burning leaves in my neighborhood was a part of it. Today took me back to that, Al.
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 1Timothy 2
What are we to pray for president-elect Obama? Isn't it obvious? First and foremost our prayer for President Obama is for his conversion. --Pastor James White
Thursday, November 06, 2008
Now that we know what doesn't win... Let's take a look at possible candidates for 2012.
* Governor Mark Sanford
Who? Maybe Grammy could tell us something about him... I remember him dying in a video in which he tried to defend McCain's in an interview w/ Blitzer. Still, since he was mentioned as a possible VP, his name is out there.
* Governor Mike Huckabee
With a new television show on Fox, Huckabee may be positioning himself for a run in 2012. This would again split the conservative vote, because so many people vote for who they "like," and not for who would be the strongest candidate.
** Governor Sarah Palin
This is one smart and competent woman... A quick study who has been successful at everything she has attempted... But she was not ready for the 2008 campaign. The trashing will continue because the Left fears her, but if she spends the next two years getting herself ready, she might surprise us all.
**** Governor Tim Pawlenty
This unashamed Evangelical governor of Minnesota has spoken at March for Life rallies in St.Paul. If he can deliver his state... And if he wants it... He might be the strongest candidate the Republicans can field.
**** Governor Mitt Romney
If not for the Huckabee campaign, I believe Mitt would have been the GOP nominee in '08. He was the choice of Coulter, Limbaugh, Ingraham, Hewitt, Malkin, and other Conservatives I respect. If he can make himself look Pro Life and a little less stiff... And has learned from his mistakes this year... He could be the go-to guy... Because he exudes competence.
***** Governor Bobby Jindal
I don't see any weaknesses here. Conservative... Competent... Attractive young family... Not white... Many see him as the front-runner.
I hope you will take a moment and vote in the comment section. "Write-ins" accepted, of course.

So just stick out your chin
The sun'll come out
So ya gotta hang on 'til tomorrow
Come what may
Don't screw us
You're just a
Where's my tax cut?
Well... At least I won't have to make my house payments anymore...
I can't believe Indiana went blue... I'm so ashamed...
When's my tax cut start?
Wait a second...
The last time we elected someone this bad... This wrong... This incompetent... We ended up with double digit inflation and double digit unemployment... Interest rates were so high that you couldn't afford to buy a home...
And in waltzed the greatest President of the 20th Century.
This time he won't be named Reagan, but maybe he'll be named Jindal or Romney... Or maybe she'll be named Palin...
In 1978 I didn't think our situation would ever get better.
I was wrong.
We'll survive this Noob... He'll do a lot of damage... But we'll take him down, and we'll get our country back.
McCain is not a conservative and never was the answer. Though this election is a tragedy, it may be for the best.
Just hang on. And pray.

I will vote today. I will pray today. But looking at the polls on the Drudge Report makes me feel kind of like I did on that sunny September morning when the world changed for the worse. I watched the towers burn and fall that day... Today I will vote, but I will not watch the destruction.
Of the votes I'm sure of in the small department in which I work, McCain leads Obama 14 to 1. But we are a well-educated, hard working group. The one Obama vote is a Christian young man who comes from a "Union" family. He can't help it.
My regrets about this election: The choice of McCain. The poorly run campaign. The belittling of a very good and accomplished Christian woman.
My TV will be off tonight. I will awake assuming the worst.
OK... Sure... Hope springs eternal.
Well... It springs until tomorrow morning.

Americans have cut back on buying cars, furniture and clothes in a tough economy, but there's one consumer item that's still enjoying healthy sales: guns. Purchases of firearms and ammunition have risen 8 to 10 percent this year, according to state and federal data.
Several variables drive sales, but many dealers, buyers and experts attribute the increase in part to concerns about the economy and fears that if Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois wins the presidency, he will join with fellow Democrats in Congress to enact new gun controls.
I asked a farmer friend of mine what he will do when Obama sends the ATF to his home to ask him to register his firearms. His response, "What firearms?"
My reply, "Good answer... Good man!"
The founding fathers experienced tyranny firsthand. They knew our citizens needed to be armed... In case they might need to take their country back... From threats outside... And from threats within.
Buy guns. If you have to sign your name, write "Mickey Mouse." It works for voter registration.

Assuming Obama wins the election, and knowing that Congress will be led by two equally Left Wing and honorless boobs... I suggest here that our country will take a giant leap towards Socialism... And its problems. The Constitution and the law will give way to the Liberal agenda and its social engineering. Here are my predictions of what may follow...
1) There will be sweeping gun-control legislation demanding the registration of every firearm in the United States. The ATF will canvas neighborhoods throughout the country. Neighbors will be asked to inform on neighbors.
2) Under the Obama Administration, ACORN and similar organizations will become so ensconced and well established in certain liberal precincts that they will be able to deliver any number of votes needed to assure a Left-Wing victory and a ruling majority in the federal government. There will be no effort to stop voter fraud and our elections will look more and more like the shams we've seen over the years in South American Dictatorships and Communist countries.
3) As socialized medicine finds its way into the health care system, the quality of treatment will fall precipitously for all those who cannot afford private care.
4) Illegal aliens will be given citizenship, securing new voters for Democrat victories. No fence will be built along our southern border.
5) With the failure of Social Security and the government's increasing influence in banking and markets, the government will eventually decide that the only "fair thing" to do is to confiscate a portion of Individual Retirement Accounts and Private Pension Dollars and redistribute them equally to citizens poorly prepared for retirement, and formerly illegal aliens.
6) Gasoline prices will be controlled, causing the need for rationing, and citizens will be strongly encouraged to use public transportation. The federal government will eventually absorb the oil and natural gas industries in this country... And run them badly.
7) Laws limiting the right to free speech will develop in proportion to the talk of treason, sedition, and revolution... And such talk will be rampant.
8) Fundamentalist churches will be monitored by the ACLU and Gay Rights Organizations, and many churches will lose their tax-exempt status. New laws will allow the prosecution of many preachers for hate speech. Gay marriage is a certainty, and the movement to overturn Roe will be dead. The Church will experience a revival proportional to America's loss of wealth and security.
9) Congress will revive the "Fairness Doctrine," eliminating most conservative talk radio programs. Many AM stations will close their doors.
10) Oppressive government oversight and regulation will make home schooling unfeasible, and religious and private education much more expensive.
11) Oppressive taxation and regulation will discourage the formation of new small businesses.
12) Government spending will be unchecked, and Inflation will rise above 15% per year. At some point it will be illegal to own or sell gold.
13) What's left of domestic auto production will be owned and run by the government and the unions.
14) The military and our nuclear arsenal will be gutted... And we, along with the rest of the world, will learn to exist under the thumb of the New Soviet Union, Red China, and Radical Islam. The United States Government will abandon Israel. We will not be safe or secure.
Now I'm not sure how many of these predictions will come to fruition, but when the Leftists own the government, the polls, and the media... I figure just about anything is possible.

From "The Kennedy-Khrushchev Conference for Dummies... Remedial history for Barack Obama." by Scott W. Johnson
By all accounts, including Kennedy's own, the meetings were a disaster. Khrushchev berated, belittled, and bullied Kennedy on subjects ranging from Communist ideology to the balance of power between the Soviet and Western blocs, to Laos, to "wars of national liberation," to nuclear testing.
Immediately following the final session on June 4 Kennedy sat for a previously scheduled interview with New York Times columnist James Reston at the American embassy. Kennedy was reeling from his meetings with Khrushchev, famously describing the meetings as the "roughest thing in my life." Reston reported that Kennedy said just enough for Reston to conclude that Khrushchev "had studied the events of the Bay of Pigs" and that he had "decided that he was dealing with an inexperienced young leader who could be intimidated and blackmailed."
In August, Khrushchev responded in his own fashion, erecting the Berlin wall and resuming above ground nuclear testing.
The following year brought the Cuban missile crisis, another sequel to Khrushchev's reading of Kennedy's weakness.
Inexperience and perceived weakness almost led to world war three.
Putin... A nuclear Iran... Can we afford an Obama presidency? We live in a dangerous world and McCain's experience and strength should sway any voter that understands the threat.

"We do not need the grace of God to stand crises, human nature and pride are sufficient, we can face the strain magnificently; but it does require the supernatural grace of God to live twenty-four hours in every day as a saint, to go through drudgery as a disciple, to live an ordinary, unobserved, ignored existence as a disciple of Jesus." --Oswald Chambers
As a public service Malott's Blog has decided to pick out one person each week who needs to be beaten.
This week I have picked Matthew Lesko, the annoying little cretin in the question mark suit who educates thieves on how they can go about acquiring the money which the government has stolen from me.
This guy really ticks me off. Who would question the undeniable fact that this man deserves to be taken out behind the barn and beaten mercilessly... And I say that a a Christian. In every situation I always try to consider "What would Jesus do," and in this case I think He would say, "Hey... This guy is asking for it!" Now whether the Saviour would bring the baseball bat, or simply look on approvingly... Only a theologian could divine.
This little homunculus might as well be handing out blueprints of my home marked with the location of my valuables, and a schedule of when I'm likely to be gone or asleep... And he's making money from it!
So congratulations Lesko... You disgusting little twerp. For facilitating theft, you are this week's Person Who Needs to be Beaten!

First: It's not that God didn't see Obama coming.
Second: Obama won't be elected in spite of God's plan. If Obama is elected, President Obama IS God's plan.
Now I'm still going to vote, but many think that Barack has it all sewn up... And maybe he does. So what should a Christian expect from this choice? Since all things work together for good for those who love the Lord... Will it be exciting?
1) I'm confident that we will see an upswing in the influence of the ACLU and other anti-Church (Anti-Jesus) organizations, and there will be increased anti-Church legislative actions by the Federal government. No question.
2) The government takes our money now, but in the future other things such as personal property may - eventually - become "up for grabs."
3) The Church's tax-exempt status will soon be a thing of the past unless we agree to compromise on the Bible's teachings - Which we won't. The Churches that would compromise have already done so.
4) All Americans will become poorer. Comforts that we took for granted for so long will gradually become a struggle, and eventually only a memory, especially the temperature in our homes. More lawlessness will ensue, reflecting the trend we see now in the federal government and the courts. As a country that steals from Peter to pay Paul, there will be an increasing undercurrent of fear and insecurity as the number of Paul's increase and the Peters increasingly throw up their hand and say, "Why bother?"
5) The people in charge will be the ones who loathe America's past, and care nothing for its traditions and values. Our country will continue to take on a culturally alien appearance, but at an accelerated rate.
But take heart. The seed bed for the faith has never been fat, rich, distracted, and lazy. And those four attributes are probably not in our future.
I believe there will be a revival in America's Churches directly proportional to the suffering and persecution that comes our way... That's the Church's history. I believe we will cling to each other as never before and our Church buildings will become a second home to us. I believe we will feel more blessed than we do today, as our troubles move our attention away from this sad world, that has never fulfilled us, and fixes our eyes upon the Giver of all good things.
Now I could be wrong about all this, of course. For one thing, some think the war with radical Islam and the crisis in the economy absolutely scream rapture. (That would be nice!) Some think we will stumble along this way for another century.
But my advice is this: Get your house in order... Now... And enjoy the ride.

CHICAGO-- Barack Obama announced today a new plan to redistribute housing in an effort to help many of America's poorest families. In comments made from a mall in Chicago, Obama stated, "Why should a poor welfare mother with six kids have to live in a two room apartment in downtown Chicago, when retirees in the suburbs whose children have already left, have more room than they need. By simply switching the families' homes we produce a better 'fit' and a more efficient use of our nation's housing resources."
There is no plan at this time for the parties to switch bank accounts.
I know. But would it really surprise you?
This afternoon, the director of Division of Elections in Alaska, Gail Fenumiai, told TPMmuckraker that Todd Palin registered in October 1995 to the Alaska Independence Party, a radical group that advocates for Alaskan secession from the United States.
Malott's Blog is currently in negotiations to bring representatives from the Alaska Independence Party to the State of Indiana, to act as advisors and begin proceedings.
God Bless The Red States of America.
Malott's Blog... "Fighting for your independence... And better gardening."

So we have 644,197 people eligible to be registered in Marion County/Indianapolis, and 677,401 people registered. Congratulations go to Indianapolis for having 105% of its residents registered!
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Officials in Missouri, a hard-fought jewel in the presidential race, are sifting through possibly hundreds of questionable or duplicate voter-registration forms submitted by an advocacy group (ACORN) that has been accused of election fraud in other states.
CLEVELAND - A man at the center of a voter-registration scandal told The Post yesterday he was given cash and cigarettes by aggressive ACORN activists in exchange for registering an astonishing 72 times, in apparent violation of Ohio laws.
Houston--Auditors identified 49,049 registered voters state-wide who may have been ineligible to vote. Approximately 23,576 may have been deceased and another 23,114 were possible felons. And they found more than 2,359 duplicate records.
It's easy to understand why Democrats are against voter ID's.
For me, we stopped being a nation of laws when the primary law experts on the Supreme Court began making up their own rules. Maybe the fact that my vote - now means nothing - is just more of the same.
This is the kind of tyranny that revolutions are made of.
The bad thing is... We're about to elect a socialist to the White House. The good thing is... The fact that an African American with a Muslim name is leading in the polls illustrates that racism in America is dead.
I would have preferred Condoleeza Rice over Vladimir's apprentice... But the fact remains America has changed for the better, if not the politically wiser.
So... No more race card. No more special consideration. No more walking on egg shells. No more "African" Americans. We're all just "Americans"... All grown up and sitting at the "big" table.
No more George. No more Republican majority... No more excuses.
Kum ba ya.

An AP writer has written that Governor Sarah Palin's linking of Barack Obama to domestic terrorist William Ayers carries a "racial tinge."
Palin's words avoid repulsing voters with overt racism. But is there another subtext for creating the false image of a black presidential nominee "palling around" with terrorists while assuring a predominantly white audience that he doesn't see their America?
The liberal AP writer is no doubt bitter that John McCain didn't launch his career from the home of Timothy McVeigh.
No. Association of any kind with a right wing extremist-bomber such as Timothy McVeigh would - for both liberals and conservatives - disqualify someone from running for public office. But associating with left wing extremist bombers, like William Ayers? ...What's wrong with that?
The fact that Barack Obama launched his political career from the home of William Ayers proves that he either sympathizes with a far left extremist bomber, or that he has incredibly poor judgement.
Or maybe both?
The race card! Don't try to elect a Leftist African American without it!

Obama said. "But one thing I know is this - we can't afford to gamble on four more years of the same disastrous economic policies we've had for the last eight."
No. We can't afford four years of unbridled Liberal tinkering with our economy!

The Road Back to January 21st, 1973
I turned 19 that day, and on the next day, January 22nd, 1973, the supreme court decided Roe vs Wade.
Because we all now know that human life begins at conception, the lawmakers and Supreme Court Justices in Washington should simply sit down together and do the right thing... Make abortion illegal. After all, the unborn have civil rights... Rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. There! The solution is simple!
But since the unborn cannot vote, and because there is little honor or moral decency in Washington, this will not happen.
Another possibility is a pro-life amendment to the Constitution, but Roe has done its job and has changed the thinking of America... And there is simply insufficient support for such an amendment.
So what is the first step?
The road back to January 21, 1973 will be as methodical and gradual as Roe was abrupt. But by definition, it must start with overturning Roe.
I've heard some say that overturning Roe is not enough! That abortion will simply fall to the states to decide, and the states no more have the right to make laws concerning the fate of the unborn than does the Supreme Court!
That thinking is principled and very pretty, but it does nothing to deal with the reality we face. It does not offer a first step.
But if after Roe is overturned and abortion is still legal... Nothing changes?
No. Everything changes.
Everything changes when state legislators begin making laws restricting abortion. Everything changes when the first state bans it outright. Everything changes when city councils get to decide if they want an abortion mill in their town. Everything changes when abortion is not a decree sent down from the black-robed gods on Mount Olympus, but rather becomes the responsibility of the voter to decide... And fair-minded people will slowly choose to do the right thing... As they take that responsibility. Their hearts, and the law, will slowly begin to change.
In November either we will take a step towards this change, or the process will be set back 20 years.
So to all you Conservative Christians and Constitutional Purists, standing on your principles and soap boxes, with your arms folded and your jaws set... I say this: Good for you! But it's time to step back into reality and do what is best for the unborn.
There is a first step... And we need to work towards it.

There is an Internet site named "Fundies Say The Darndest Things" which is devoted to the mocking, belittling, and sometimes the spewing of hatred towards Fundamentalist Christians. My posts and comments have been featured on this site 10 times since December of 2006, garnering an average of 45 comments from the site's "regulars."
Now I can't say for sure who the "regulars" are, but based on the venom, I suspect that most of them are homosexuals. I can think of no other group that hates the Church enough to have a web site with the soul purpose of "sticking it" to Jesus.
I've read some of the comments aimed at me, and though they're insulting, I've never really felt insulted. When I shuffle through their attacks, it's like I'm at the aquarium and on the other side of the glass I see the "regulars" underwater and floundering... Hurling insults at me and flipping me off... And they're drowning. And I can't help them.
When they come to my blog and leave comments, I try to leave the comments up - if they're not profane - so that my readers can get a sense for the hatred that the Church increasingly faces.
I imagine the "regulars" are a tight-knit group, taking comfort in each other's company... Though when thumbing one's nose at our Holy God, the concept of "safety in numbers" is hardly applicable. They surely sense the coming tsunami, as they huddle together for warmth... On the beach.
Honestly, I wish them well. Their anger is no doubt the result of rejection, hurt feelings, frustration, and fear. And while circumstances may lead people to reject what they instinctively know in their hearts... Circumstances change.
