The Importance of Angels

“When we were ready to step into the capitol, I sensed a strong demonic presence. I prayed, ‘Lord, would you please send warring angels to go into the capitol before us?’ Incredibly, I immediately saw two angels before me, each 20 feet tall. One had a sword, and the other had a huge hammer or mallet.

OK, A Hit Man With a Soft Heart

Haven't seen Killing them Softly" yet but I have a lot of respect for the intelligence and acumen of Rebecca Cusey and she sees some merit in the film, although she admits it's not for everyone. ("Equally shocking, however, is the humanity the film pulls out of the characters. Somehow, scum and murderers though they are, the audience still finds itself rooting for them. Sure, you murder for a living and I write about movies, but much of our underlying realities are the same.")

Family Income Is Declining

The median net worth of American households has dropped to a 43-year low as the lower and middle classes appear poorer and less stable than they have been since 1969. (Guess what it will be after four more years of Obama? HIs friends will be rich and everyone else will be poor. That's what politicians mean when they say "redistribute" the wealth. They take your money and give it to their political friends and allies.)

The Awesome Ann Coulter

The lovely and talented Ann Coulter is to liberals what sunshine is to vampires. If you want to see the denizens of darkness flee in terror, just mention her name, or the title of one of her books. She hunts vicious and often idiotic leftist ideas with the same diligence that Van Helsing had in stalking Dracula. And Coulter leaves all the liberal rantings with a literary stake through the liver. (Not sure leftists have hearts so you have to puncture other organs.)
