Advertising Makes Us Unhappy — I love capitalism, but the title is true.  I used to do an exercise with Junior Achievement students to demonstrate how advertising slogans had completely permeated their brains.  They thought they were clever in remembering them, until I explained why they knew them.  Yes, every ad is designed to tell you one thing: You should not be content because you don’t have _______.

The solutions are to avoid advertising as much as possible (TV is the worst!) and to consciously analyze the ads you do see for the lies they are selling (“Drinking lots of this beer will make sexy women want me, and it definitely won’t make me fat and unproductive and lead to lots of bad decisions!”).

What a bunch of wolves!  The blogger makes a great point about not being afraid to be “divisive.”

But we would do good to remember that the Bible places the blame for divisions on the ones bringing in the false doctrine, not on those who call it out. Paul writes in Romans 16:17: “I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them.” Notice that it was the false teachers who Paul criticizes for being divisive, not the believers.

At first I thought they were making a dig at dancing, as if it tastes bad.  But they meant it is super-healthy.  I agree, but I’d pick a better illustration than kale!

It’s worth noting that the mental and physical benefits of dancing aren’t just for the young at heart. “Dancing increases cognitive acuity at all ages. It integrates several brain functions at once — kinesthetic, rational, musical and emotional — further increasing your neural connectivity,” said Richard Powers, a social and historic dance instructor at Stanford University.


‘Bernie the Red’: Project Veritas shares terrifying video of Bernie Sanders field organizer promoting Gulags, re-education, violence, and more (watch) — I rarely say, “must watch,” but this is a must watch.  This is Leftism.

And if these people think that is the only person Project Veritas has saying these things then they don’t know Project Veritas.  And this Bernie Bro thinks that MSNBC isn’t Leftist enough!  Are you surprised that they want to take away the 2nd Amendment?!

If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC Convention, f*cking Milwaukee will burn. It’ll start in Milwaukee and when police push back on that, then other cities will just f*cking (hand explosion).”

“The cops are gonna be the ones that are getting f*cking beaten in Milwaukee. They’re gonna call up the National Guard for that sh*t. I promise you that.”

I’m ready to throw down now. I don’t want to wait and have to wait for f*cking DNC…The billionaire class. The f*cking media, pundits. Walk into that MSNBC studios, drag those motherf*ckers out by their hair and light them on fire in the streets.”

10 Indisputable Rules To Guide Your Recovery From Porn — This could help some people.  I especially like #5, as a pet peeve of mine for any 12 step programs is their generic “higher power.”

5. If your higher power is not Jesus Christ, you need a higher higher power.

I attend two SA meetings per week. We use the term “higher power” a lot. But if your higher power is your group, your program, or anything less than Jesus Christ, you need a major upgrade in your higher power. Only Jesus could say, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been give to me” (Matthew 28:18).

So, About Those White, Heterosexual, Patriarchal Values… Once again, Leftists hate blacks.  There is a formulas for successful living, but instead of teaching it they mock it as the problem, not the solution.  They don’t want to help blacks, they want to profit off their misery and mine their votes.  Here’s the advice that triggered them:

“Get married before you have children and strive to stay married for their sake. Get the education you need for gainful employment, work hard, and avoid idleness. Go the extra mile for your employer or client. Be a patriot, ready to serve the country. Be neighborly, civic-minded, and charitable. Avoid coarse language in public. Be respectful of authority. Eschew substance abuse and crime.”

And the predictable Leftist response:

A coalition of students and alumni responded to the essay in predictable fashion. Wax and Alexander were peddling the “malignant logic of hetero-patriarchal, class-based, white supremacy that plagues our country today. These cultural values and logics are steeped in anti-blackness and white hetero-patriarchal respectability . . .”

Australia to Kill 10,000 Camels for Causing Global Warming — Leftism is just a creepy death cult – always looking for something else to destroy.

When killing camels fails to make the climate stop fluctuating for the first time in world history, what or who will the true believers want to sacrifice next?


The Babylon Bee: An Interview with Kyle Mann — Great interview!  Glad they are doing so well.

The Babylon Bee resonates with an enormous and enormously underserved audience: conservative Christians and their allies. This much-beleaguered readership is so often the object of sardonic ridicule that it has almost forgotten what it feels like to be in on the joke. In the Bee, traditionalists (and anyone who doesn’t want to see traditionalists chased out of the public square) have finally found a brand of smart, trendy irony that speaks to their concerns. It’s a feeling, as Mann himself puts it, of “hey, this is humorous and doesn’t hate me!”

Which is also why, when Snopes and CNN have tried to defame the Bee, fans of free speech everywhere have rallied to the site’s defense. “Snopes was kind of that annoying guy at a party, who’s like ‘actually that joke isn’t true!’” says Mann. Accusations of deceit look ludicrous when levied against headlines like “CNN Purchases Industrial-Sized Washing Machine to Spin News Before Publication.” And charges of intolerance or “punching down” have largely fizzled as the Bee (which in fact takes shots at everyone, in the tradition of the best satirists) has stood strong against SJW criticism.

Netflix Shows Features Child Corrupted by Drag — I say without exaggeration that anyone involved with this should be in jail.  So glad I canceled Netflix!

On Friday, January 10, Netflix premiered a new show co-created by drag queen RuPaul, titled AJ and the Queen [… which is] about a 10-year-old child who accompanies Robert (RuPaul), a gay male drag performer who goes by “Ruby Red,” as he travels across the country performing in drag shows at mostly gay bars. …

The child, AJ (Izzy G.), is the daughter of a drug-addicted prostitute. She wants to be a boy “because people leave boys alone.” She hides her long hair under a boyish hat and does her best to look and act like a 10-year-old boy instead of a girl. The show is one long exposure of this child to sexualized adult situations in which she does not belong, all under the guise of the drag queen and the child “bonding” cross-country.

Hungary Takes On the Feminist Goliath—and Wins — Good for them!

Enter Hungary. In an effort to restore curricular and administrative sanity to university education, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his Fidesz Party have passed legislation to abolish Gender Studies as an area of official study. Hungary’s Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen has stated that such programs “ha[ve] no business in universities” as they represent “an ideology, not a science,” with a market profile “close to zero.” Similarly, Orban’s Chief of staff Gergely Gulyas said, “The Hungarian government is of the clear view that people are born either men or women. They lead their lives the way they think best [and] the Hungarian state does not wish to spend public funds on education in this area.”

After Falsely Accusing 12 Men of Rape, She Was Allowed to Just Go Home

We need more Bible here. God says the false witness should receive the punishment that they would have gotten. That would reduce these life-destroying false accusations.  Deuteronomy 19:18–21 The judges shall inquire diligently, and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely, then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother. So you shall purge the evil from your midst. And the rest shall hear and fear, and shall never again commit any such evil among you. Your eye shall not pity. It shall be life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

The consequences of being falsely accused of rape can be enormous. Jobs can be lost, relationships can end and the stress can drive a sane man to therapy — and of course, it’s considerably worse if you get convicted. In this case, some of these guys spent 10 days in JAIL for something that they didn’t do and you know when they’re on their death beds one day, being falsely accused of rape is going to be on their list of worst memories.

Making that kind of false accusation is a serious crime with major consequences.Yet, she’s getting a free pass for it because she’s young and female. Despite the fact that she lied, they’re still refusing to even release her name. Inevitably, these kinds of rulings incentivize false rape accusations, which are much more frequent than most people realize. When women can lie about being raped, put men through Hell and get a free pass for it, the message is that making a false accusation is no big deal. That needs to change.

The usual route to an officer’s commission includes four years at Annapolis or another military academy or months of intense training at Officer Candidate School. … Buttigieg skipped all that—no obstacle courses, no weapons training, no evaluation of his ability or willingness to lead. Paperwork, a health exam and a background check were all it took to make him a naval officer. …Combat veterans have grumbled for decades about the direct-commission route. The politically connected and other luminaries who receive immediate commissions are disparaged as “pomeranian princes.” …

Buttigieg was assigned to a comfortable corner of military life, the Naval Station in Great Lakes, Ill.

NY man accused of burglary spree released with no bail. Guess what happened next — More insanity from the Left.  They fail at basic economics, so they don’t realize that taking away consequences drives more bad behavior.

I just know some of you will faint from shock when you learn that, upon his release, Conway headed out and committed his fifth alleged burglary in four days, breaking into a Bagel Boss in Carle Place and stealing the cash registers. The total amount of damage to five different businesses added up fast, costing far more than the small amount of money the thief managed to abscond with.

But under this insane new law, there was nothing the police or the courts could do. Every time he was captured and charged, he had to be set loose on the community once again. It’s not as if the cops don’t have more than enough to keep them busy in New York these days. They need to be out monitoring the weekly F*** the Police marches in Brooklyn. That’s when they’re not busy having people sucker punch them at intersections or douse them with buckets of water while they try to arrest someone. (Perps were released immediately without bail in both cases.)

Do you know what happens when you tell criminals that you’re not going to take their crimes seriously or “abuse them” with incarceration? They commit more crimes. The fact that the powers that be in New York couldn’t figure this out in advance is mind-boggling. Of course the property crime rates are going to go up. It was inevitable. And it’s the law-abiding citizens of the city and the business owners who pay the price for it.

In another quip, Gervais slammed actors for calling themselves “woke” while taking money from Apple, Amazon and Disney, who use slave labor.“ If ISIS started a streaming service, you’d call your agent,” joked Gervais.“ If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and $&!# off,” he added.

A simple but profound reminder to Christians (that I heard from our pastor): Jesus loves you and He knows what He is doing.


Great reminders from Randy Alcorn (I think he wrote them).

1. There are only two eternal destinations—Heaven or Hell—and I and every person I know will go to one or the other.
2. This world (as it is now) is not my home and everything in it will burn, leaving behind only what’s eternal.
3. My choices and actions in this life have a direct influence on the world and the life to come.

4. My life is being examined by God, the Audience of One, and the only appraisal of my life that will ultimately matter is His.

5. God is sovereign, and I can trust that He is working all things—including the most difficult things—in my life together for good.

6. My ultimate home will be the New Earth, where I will see and enjoy God and serve Him as a resurrected being in a resurrected human society.


Q. Why do Leftists complain about jobs outsourced to other countries but want open borders so people can come here to take the jobs?

A. Votes.


I’m not doing a read-the-Bible-in-a-year plan, just another plan where I go at my own pace — usually a chapter in the morning and a chapter in the evening, plus reading the extensive study notes from The Bible Knowledge Commentary.  That will take a little over 1.5 years.

I love book-ending the day with Bible reading.  I also cycle through memory verses on the Bible Memory app, which takes some time (if I wait too long between cycles I start to forget things!).

The plan I’m using is under Logos and called the “52 week plan.” It cycles between genres each day – e.g., currently going through a few chapters of Genesis one day, then Joshua the next, then Psalms, Job, Isaiah, Matthew and Romans.  I love the variety.  I finished a chronological plan a month ago, and I really like that approach.

If you don’t have a plan, get one!  It doesn’t have to be a read-in-a-year thing.  Those are great, and I’ve done them, but I can start to get too check-box oriented and miss things.


Feminist mothers heartbroken and panicked as teen daughters demand to transition to male — Kudos to the Wall Street Journal for publishing the piece quoted at the link.  I encourage you to read it all.  One would hope that these Leftists would reconsider their overall views after being mugged by reality like this, but they generally seem to just go drink more salt water.  Hat tip: Danny

Nearly every force in society is aligned against these parents: Churches scramble to rewrite their liturgies for greater “inclusiveness.” Therapists and psychiatrists undermine parental authority with immediate affirmation of teens’ self-diagnoses. Campus counselors happily refer students to clinics that dispense hormones on the first visit. Laws against “conversion therapy,” which purports to cure homosexuality, are on the books in 14 states and the District of Columbia. These statutes also prohibit “efforts to change a patient’s . . . gender identity,” in the words of the New Jersey law—effectively threatening counselors who might otherwise dissuade teens from proceeding with hormone treatment or surgery.

Reddit, Tumblr, Instagram and YouTube host an endless supply of mentors, who cheerfully document their own physical transitions, omitting mention of dangerous side effects and offering tips on how to pass as a man and how to break away from unsupportive parents. For anxious teens who tend toward obsession, these videos can be mesmerizing. Though the stars are typically pictured alone in a bedroom, they project exuberance and social élan. As one female-to-male YouTube guru who goes by “Alex Bertie” puts it: “Taking testosterone is the best decision I’ve ever made. I’m so happy within myself. It did not solve all of my problems, but it’s given me the strength to make the most out of life and to battle my other demons like my social issues.”

Brie Jontry, a spokeswoman for Fourth Wave Now, an international support network for these families, is one of the two mothers who spoke on the record. She tells me ROGD teens often come from politically progressive families. Many of the mothers I spoke with say they enthusiastically supported same-sex marriage long before it was legal anywhere. Some of them describe welcoming the news when their daughters came out as lesbians. But when their daughters suddenly decided that they were actually men and started clamoring for hormones and surgery, the mothers begged them to reconsider, or at least slow down.

Like literally all transsexuals, he had mental issues, which he described as “most notably anxiety and self-esteem issues.” He underwent a botched sex change operation that left him in extreme pain from nerve damage.

Was Jesus a Refugee?  No, but that won’t stop the “Christian” Left from using that lie to support open borders and to destroy this country.

But recognize that the family never left the Roman Empire. They left Bethlehem and fled to Egypt, to the Jewish settlement at Alexandria. This means they were even staying with their own people in a thriving community, and likely used the gifts the magi gave Jesus to pay for their stay. When Herod died a short time later, they returned to Joseph’s hometown of Nazareth.

The politicians who say “Jesus was a refugee” are often quite liberal. They advocate for the murder of the unborn and the redefinition of marriage. This means they’re not of the court of King Jesus, but with the court of King Herod, who killed children and hated God’s definition of marriage. They’d have done Herod a favor and killed Jesus before He was born.

Jesus did not come to us as a refugee. He was born King of kings, before whom every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, when we understand the text.


Bernie Sanders is who the Left – including the Leftist media – wants to have control over you.  This is a must-watch, especially to be able to call out how he has changed his tune on some Communist countries and his pretending that he understands how some European countries work today.  He is a terrible person who has accomplished nothing in life.  He covets 24×7 and his followers do the same.


We’ve canceled Netflix forever.  They had enough issues already, but their “gay Jesus” thing was the last straw.  #cancelnetflix


I’m Not A Christian Anymore: An Analysis | Bible Thumping Wingnut Network — Excellent analysis.  He rightly focuses on 1 John 2:19, which these “ex-Christians” never bothered to learn – even when they were long-time pastors.

1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.

“Deconversion” testimonies are ubiquitous across social media. They generally follow a set pattern and share many of the same themes and tropes. Person X abandons the faith because X reason(s) like haunting doubts regarding some problem with God, or he/she couldn’t find an answer for some nagging Bible question, or an overwhelming, calamitous event happens in his/her life, or a falling out with hypocritical leadership/members. Honestly, though, many times the main reason comes down to the person choosing sinful behavior. Generally it involves cheating on a spouse or the pursuit of what is believed to be some other sexually liberating deviancy.

The ex-pastor being analyzed lamented that he was disappointed in his marriage (uh, so Christianity is false then?!).  The author’s take on that:

What exactly was he promised that his marriage would be? He doesn’t really elaborate. But, that tweet reveals the heart of the matter. According to at least one member of his church, Mr. Gass was involved in a hidden affair for nearly a year, was caught, and he now continues to live in unrepentant adultery with a woman not his wife.

Apparently he had other significant issues as well.  Anyone surprised?  Much more at the link.



A grim example of a woman killed by feminism and the sexual revolution

Feminism kills women. It kills young and vulnerable women. It kills their hopes. It kills their dreams. It kills their future. All young women are vulnerable and that is what feminism exploits. It is a racket run by women to destroy women, the reason being that women are their own worst enemy. It seduces them with promises of power, independence, and sexual freedom, and then it grinds them down into nothingness as they waste their fertile years chasing after these imaginary shadows.

Hold up Kate Fischer as a grim warning to your sisters and daughters. A woman needs feminism like a moth needs a flame.


The situation in Virginia is awful, but it does show you what the Left will do when they take over completely.  They are already saying they’ll send in the National Guard to enforce their unconstitutional gun laws.


Michael Moore: “White People Are Not Good People…You Should Be Afraid of White People” — OK, racist.  Yeah, if you didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton – the most cartoonishly corrupt and evil politician in memory — you are evil or something. If you oppose open borders, abortion to the child’s first breath, sexual perversions, etc., you are bad. Gotcha.

Meanwhile blacks are literally killed at a rate three times that of whites via abortion because of Molech-worshiping Leftists like Moore. Seems kinda racist to me.


The Media Keeps Lying About Harvey Milk’s Military Record — He wasn’t dishonorably discharged.  His biographers know the truth, but the lazy and dishonest media repeats Milk’s lie to advance the narrative.
