Are you better off than you were 4 years ago when the Democrats took control of Congress? January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.  Before that the Democrats pushed for plans that would inevitably drive high foreclosure rates but they insulated the lenders from risk.  Horrible, horrible idea.  Bush tried to reform Fannie and Freddie and was blocked.  Who took the third highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac?  Barack Obama.

Remember, Nancy Pelosi said that the Democrats “are prepared to govern and ready to lead.”  When did she say that?  November 8, 2006.

Home Depot founder rips Obama WH as “tenured” academics, apologizes for creating jobs

Jr. High Students Take Field Trip to Mosque, Pressured into Praying to Allah — any major media coverage of this?  Any ACLU outrage?

An interesting piece by Pastor Timothy about Christianity and the Godfather.  A snippet:

The movie is a great example of what happens when sin goes unrestrained. You have every manner of sin being delved into by those who believe they live in a protected world due to the fact that Godfather Don Corleone has all the judges in his back pocket. That is how Michael can gun down one of the mob bosses and a police captain and get away with it. When you own those who are charged with keeping the law, then you can keep them from using the law against you.

The movie’s popularity is due to the fact that it does appeal to our sin nature. We want to be in control of the world in which we live and The Godfather shows us a world where the Don controls a good portion of his own world. Of course, he has to use intimidation, fear, the threat of having your favorite pet’s head severed and dumped in your bed over night, death, etc., in order to control that world. But wouldn’t we love to control our world in such a way?

Stunner: Congresswoman wheedles lobbyist for money – your tax dollars at work.  The audacity of her shakedown is bad enough, but I’m she was so bold / stupid as to leave it on a voicemail.  This is getting major coverage in the mainstream media, right?

Former-leftist Robin of Berkeley explains the left’s corruption of children – read it.

Communist atheist Mao Zedong killed 45 million people – It was really quite gruesome.  The numbers are staggering.  Ideas have consequences.  Wasn’t Mao a hero of one of Obama’s top advisors?

Black Conservatives Blast Al Sharpton Protesters – sweet.  Great ideas, but they disagree with Obama & Co. so they must be racists.  Seriously, she was well armed with facts about the impact of Democratic policies on nuclear families and the high rate of abortion in black communities.  The other guy played the “but they’ll be poor” argument to justify his pro-abortion views, which ignores the facts that the abortion kills an innocent human being and we don’t “solve” poverty by killing people inside the womb or outside.

Speak the Gospel — use deeds when necessary – Seems that St. Francis probably didn’t say “Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.”  I didn’t realize that when I wrote Taking St. Francis too literally, but the content there still applies.  Even if he had said it, a cursory review of his life would show that he said it as hyperbole.  He was all about using words to share the Gospel.  Hat tip: The Pugnacious Irishman

Does the Old Testament condone slavery? – Excellent post on a common objection to the Bible.  Very clear and concise.  Read it and save the link.

Absolutely not.

The Old Testament speaks of slavery often, and lays out rules on how slaves were to be treated. This has caused some to become confused…but a basic understanding of the context for ancient near-eastern slavery shows that the Old Testament does not condone slavery. Let’s look at some common assumptions . . .

Hypocritical Al Sharpton Doesn’t Know the First Thing About Martin Luther King’s Legacy

Al Sharpton is a professional bigot. During his long career the Reverend has incited two anti-Semitic pogroms; the Crown Heights riot and the firebombing of the Jewish-owned Freddy’a Fashion Mart in Harlem. Each of the Sharpton-incited pogroms resulted in deaths, but now for some unknown reason Reverend Al believes he is the caretaker of religious tolerance in the country, as well as the protector of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy of peaceful protest.

Evolutionary psychology: Evolutionary psychologists get stressed and start to cry over the evolution of crying

Darwinism requires that stupid, materialist explanations based on survival be preferred to obvious ones that start with the reality of the human mind and human cognition, so far as I can see.

The real racists.

Chuck Currie finds one (1) offensive comment on Facebook and draws this conclusion: Is Racism Alive In Oregon? Just Look At Facebook.

Sure, Chuck.  One person makes one stupid comment and you draw that conclusion?  The other people were venting over a fake pastor poverty pimp coming to grandstand.  Who can blame them?

Jackson and Sharpton are about as authentic as “reverends” as Chuck is (which is to say, not at all).

The real racists are Jackson, Sharpton, Currie and the like who advocate unrestricted abortion, which targets blacks just as Planned Parenthood’s founder did.  Abortion destroys black human beings at a rate three times that of whites.  It is the ultimate racism, killing more blacks in a day than the KKK did since their inception.

And all with the blessing of “reverends” like these three!

While protecting “choice” (that is, the choice to kill innocent human beings), they oppose the choice that would really help blacks: School choice.

They want to keep the blacks people poor and dependent, and it is working.  Shame on them.

This should be a central concern of the church as we are called by God to be a people of reconciliation and justice.

Sure, Chuck.  Then why do you spread lies about people and falsely accuse them of racist comments and more?

Chuck complains about “institutional racism,” but that is exactly what Liberal politics is about.  Go read Detroit: The petri dish of Liberal politics, education and unions.
