America’s Restoration

I’ve been thinking about the mess that America is in and the attempts that are being made to get us out of it. It is still accurate to say that God is judging America, but what He is doing, in my opinion, is to let us stand in our own dirty diapers. There are folks that are planning a big day of prayer and fasting in Washington D.C. on May 1, begging God to give us a clean diaper. We promise that we won’t dirty the next one. (more…)

Arms shipment captured by Israel

The Muslim world has its shorts twisted over the Israeli capture of a ship carrying Iranian arms for Syria, even calling it a war crime.

I just don’t understand the hullabaloo. The missiles, rockets and such were supposed to go to Syria, who would send them over land to Hezbollah who would fire them into Israel. So the final destination of those arms was Israel and they are in Israel. The only thing that Israel did was to lower the carbon footprint of the transaction by getting the weapons into Israel without them being fired. Iran wanted those weapons in Israel! So, why are they complaining?

Environmentalists should be rejoicing that Israel was helping to reduce “climate change”. Instead, these same people are upset.

The “Religion of Peace” controls the politics of Iran, Syria and Hezbollah, so I know that they rejoice that these weapons won’t be used to conduct war.

Can someone explain this to me?

In 2006, I left the land of my birth, the United States of America, and moved to Finland. My only reason for moving was to be wed to a woman that I loved, a Finn. I still love her dearly. But I miss my homeland.

Government jobs — solution for unemployment?

Why does the government (any government) collect taxes? The answer should be obvious. Government cannot create money. To get money, government must take it from someone who creates it.  You cry, “Foul! The government creates money all the time.”  No, the government prints money.

The following declaration has been making the email rounds.  This isn’t the first time I’ve seen it.  Some take what it says seriously and others regard it as just wishful thinking.  I take it seriously.  One of my brothers sent it to me this time.  I wanted to give him a thoughtful, realistic, Christian response.  […]

Constitution unconstitutional?

The people of California, through a direct vote made a law.  Judges of the California Supreme Court decided that the law violated the rights of a small minority.  (It is supposed that the California Constitution spells out what rights the people have, but I don’t know which of those rights were violated.)  The people of […]

There has been the suggestion that it may become necessary for Constitutional Americans to form a new government.  (See Joseph Farah’s column and my earlier post.) With this in mind, I have updated the preamble to the Declaration of Independence.  I have brought the language up to date from 18th century English and have modified […]

I’m reading a lot of columns that tell us how badly things would go for a lover of American style freedom under an Obama administration. It is a good thing to try to frighten people about what an Obama administration would bring. The fact is that the possibility of a Socialist States of America is […]

Constitution? What Constitution?

Michael Farris wrote in a column on World Net Daily: There are only two meaningful ways to interpret the Constitution. The originalist theory is that the words mean the same thing today as they meant when they were written and ratified. This is an approach that is necessary if we believe in both self-government and […]

Christians and Marriage Licenses

A while ago I wrote a blog post that posited that it was sinful for a Christian couple to decline to deliberately include God and His will into the fabric of their marriage. In the responses to an article in World Net Daily, California bans ‘brides,’ ‘grooms’, about the fallout of a California Supreme Court […]
