Oh wait---they aren't being honest?

Guess what? President Obama, Secretary Clinton, and many others who want an unarmed American populace, for reasons that are obvious to people with brains,(hint: unarmed people can't stop robbery, rape, and murder, whether perpetrated by criminals or a government turned criminal) have been LYING about the use of American weapons in the lawlessness of Mexico.

They've been saying that 90% of guns found in Mexican crime scenes come from America. And guess what? It's just not true. See the story here.

It's a misused statistic. 90% of guns sent to the US for tracing turn out to have come from the US. Only 17 % of guns are sent to the US for tracing. The 90% that came from America include weapons sold, legally, by American arms companies to the Mexican government, that have been stolen in Mexico. Also, it includes weapons provided by the American government to differing sides of conflicts in Central and South America over the last 20 years. The weapons have since been stolen or simply the people we thought were worth supporting, weren't. (US Presidents aren't always good judges of character. Or, maybe they are, and we didn't judge their character well.)

So, the President, the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, various Congresspeople and Senators want to deprive you of your Second Amendment rights to protect the Mexican people based on a lie. Makes you wonder what their true motives are, doesn't it? Or does it make it obvious?

Folks, America is at a crossroads, with our very liberties at stake. The liberties that we have long held are granted by our Creator. Remember, your rights don't come from the government. You don't have freedom because you are an American. Your freedom is given by your Creator. America is just a nation that is supposed to recognize those rights. But some people don't want you to have that freedom. They want you to pay your taxes, so they don't have to pay theirs. They want you unarmed, so that they can do what they want. They don't want you voting by secret ballot, don't want you to keep the money you make, don't want you saluting the American flag.

And who is they? President Obama, Secretary Clinton, Attorney General Holder, Speaker Pelosi, and others.

People, we're past needing to read Atlas Shrugged. It's time to read Animal Farm.

  2. I'd have to disagree.

    If you give whiskey and car keys to teenage boys, you basically know what's going to happen. They'll drink themselves stupid and wrap themselves around the nearest tree...

    It's unsafe, but predictable. I'm thinking the government, it's way less predictable...

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Curiosity and the Faithlife Study Bible

Good morning! Today I want to take a look at the NIV Faithlife Study Bible. Rather than spend the whole post on this particular Study Bible, I’m going to hit a couple of highlights and then draw you through a few questions that I think this format helps with.



First, the basics of the NIV Faithlife Study Bible (NIVFSB, please): the translation is the 2011 New International Version from Biblica. I’m not the biggest fan of that translation, but that’s for another day. It is a translation rather than a paraphrase, which is important for studying the Bible. Next, the NIVFSB is printed in color. Why does that matter? This version developed with Logos Bible Software’s technology and much of the “study” matter is transitioning from screen to typeface. The graphics, maps, timelines, and more work best with color. Finally, you’ve got the typical “below-the-line” running notes on the text. Most of these are explanations of context or highlights of parallels, drawing out the facts that we miss by …

Foolishness: 1 Corinthians 1

In Summary: 1 Corinthians opens with the standard greeting of a letter from the Apostle Paul. He tells who he is with (Sosthenes) and who he is writing to. In this case, that is the “church of God that is in Corinth.” He further specifies that this church is made up of those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be saints. 
He then expresses the blessing/greeting of “grace and peace” from God. From there, Paul reflects on his initial involvement with the Corinthian people and the beginning of the church. After that, though, there are problems to deal with and Paul is not hesitant to address them. He begins by addressing the division within the church. Apparently, the church had split into factions, some of which were drawn to various personalities who had led the church in times past. There is no firm evidence, or even a suggestion, that Paul, Cephas, Apollos, or anyone else had asked for a faction in their name. Further, the “I follow Christ” faction may not have been any le…
