Have These People Tried Dieting and Exercise?

Study says 42 percent of Americans will be obese in 2030. (Good, that means there won't be crowds on the golf course and I can get a good tee time.)

Law School Malpractice

A great column by Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post. I didn't realize that most law schools don't teach and are even hostile to The Federalist Papers. But many professors nowadays, and too many federal judges, believe the Constitution is a living document and has evolved. Therefore, why bother to read original documents since they have evolved into something else.

The Stupid Left and the Satanic Left

The Stupid Left hates America because it thinks America promotes evil, oppressive regimes around the world. The Satanic Left hates America because America gets in the way of the evil, oppressive regime that the Satanic Left promotes. The Stupid Left does not know that communism produces gulags. The Satanic Left supports communism precisely because it produces gulags and also because members of the Satanic Leftists presume they will be placed in charge of the gulags. (Glad the author didn't mince words.)

If You are Honored By the World...

Three Iowa judges who lost their jobs in the wake of a controversial decision to legalize same-sex marriage in Iowa were rewarded this morning with the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage award. (It is not up to four judges to redefine marriage. The voters deserve the applause in this case. Shall we paraphase the scripture do not seek worldly applause or approval. The Kennedy Library has never honored a pro-life activist and never will.)

A Corrupt Department of Justice?

According to Breitbart News contributing editor Peter Schweitzer at Forbes, the Obama Department of Justice has been selectively avoiding prosecution of certain large banks and firms on Wall Street for fraud. Why? Perhaps because, as Schweitzer points out, “those banks are clients of the firms from which top DOJ officials hail.”

Baptist Albert Mohler Kicks NYT Butt

The editors demand “evidence” that heterosexual marriages will be harmed by the legalization of same-sex marriage, but this is an evasion. Legalizing same-sex marriage redefines marriage as an institution, leading to a fundamental redefinition of society. Opponents of same-sex marriage believe that such a redefinition, in itself, is a harm to the entire society.  (Well, you can't really expect honesty from the New York Times.)

Pentagon cuts soldiers, keeps civilians

The Pentagon's civilian workforce, which expanded dramatically during President Obama’s first three years, is not facing any significant reductions even as the Defense Department is slashing ground troops by more than 10 percent, retiring ships and combat planes, and putting off the purchases of some new weapons. (Shouldn't it be the other way around. If we are reducing soldiers, we don't need more civilians at the Pentagon either.)

Looney Alert

Massachusetts bans school bake sales. (It's an anti-obesity measure. Can we do something about the fat between legislators' ears?)

A Plague of Killings in Oakland

More than 140 people have been killed in Oakland this year.  (Not much hope and change out there. This is another indication that the nation has societal and cultural problems that no national leader is addressing. Possibly the political correct culture in the media, politics and academia undercuts serious debate of such issues.)

So Is Obama A Racist?

 Civil rights lawyers have told the Daily Caller that President Barack Obama's 2012 campaign managers have have violated employment law by hiring an overwhelmingly white staff for his Chicago campaign office. (Yes, talk about irony.)

What Is Bound In Heaven

Showing the power of the blood and name of Jesus.

 The problem: those who lived on the Uruguayan side of the street would not accept the Gospel. None would. While on the Brazilian side, everyone took the tracts graciously. The revival ended exactly at the border. It turns out, says Law, that a group of Christians had specifically taken authority over Brazil -- binding the "prince" of that country but not Uruguay!

What is bound is Heaven...

Wonder If They Will Fly The Rebel Flag

The Upper Penisula of Michigan is talking secession. (As a son of the South, I have sympathy for current secession movements but none for the 1861 exit from the Union. We should have just shot the slaveowners and spared the nation four years of horrible bloodshed.)

A Bit of Bias From The Times

Although the New York Times can still provide good reporting on issues, more and more frequency bias creeps in its stories, as Professor Glenn Reynolds points out. His column is here.

Trouble In The TBN Paradise

First-class “working dinners” are a way of life. In pending lawsuits, the Kopers say that Mr. Crouch, Mrs. Crouch and their son Matthew each ran up meal expenses of at least $300,000 per year. Mr. May, the TBN lawyer, said this was not accurate but did not offer other figures. If true, that does seem a bit excessive. (For the New York Times, which is no doubt gleeful about this, the story seems fair and down the middle. Paul and Jan Crouch have done incredible things for the Kingdom of God. So I'm withholding judgment. How many millions of people have they helped into the Kingdom of God. Then again, more than one ministry has slid into a fiscal ditch, or rather drove into a fiscal ditch in a string of multi-high priced luxury cars.
