The question at the heart of Christmas

December 25, 2017 - 09:10

Suppose they had public opinion polls some 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem, Nazareth, Jerusalem or as far away as Rome or Syria.

How many folks would have said “yes” to the question: Will all history be divided into two categories: Events that happened before a seemingly routine occurrence one night in Bethlehem, a small town in the hills just south of Jerusalem, and those events that have taken place since then?

Certainly not the handful of Jewish shepherds in those hills who reported that angels told them that a special baby was to be born in town that night.

At a time when space travel is taken for granted, many of us overlook the faith that made possible Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin’s walk on the virgin dust of the moon half a century ago on July 16,1969.

Even more so, the faith that prompted the first European settlers to found the colonies that became what we now know as the United States of America seems all but forgotten.

Mother Nature recently woke up on the wrong side of her bed. She didn’t realize that there would be loss of life, homes, prize possessions, devastation to many areas of Florida.

The very young don’t remember that we have been through this before, all the adults remember it all too well.

We mourn our loved ones and regain our strength and move on, Florida will rebuild.

Slowly the lights are on, thanks to the electric company and all the companies from other states that have come to help.

A free and just government cannot make and enforce enough laws to insure a high functioning and safe environment for its citizens. A viciously intimidating dictatorship or a sophisticated psychological “thought control regime” can create stability at the expense of freedom and innovation. These repressive societies gradually degenerate into police states using more physically and psychologically abusive methods of control.

Cities where residents are poorer than average

Cities where a high number of residents are high school dropouts

High drug use

Higher than average Payday Loan Outlets and Dollar Stores

Violent cities (measured in aggravated assaults)

Cities with a high number of residents on welfare”

We will not give up until Venezuela is Free

Just one day following the conclusion of the shameful Constituent Assembly aimed to empower Nicolas Maduro’s regime, the dictator and his gang of thugs have struck again. This time, during a cowardly overnight raid to seize two members of the opposition party, Leopoldo Lopez and Antonio Ledezma.

The world saw the devastating images from Venezuela over the weekend. Maduro’s continued brutalization of the Venezuelan people with violence and a total lack of democracy is atrocious.

Wildlife corridors: Where do they really lead?

June 30, 2017 - 10:43

Since wildlife corridors aren’t proven to work as intended, and may even harm wildlife, what is the true purpose? Wildlife corridor theory and reserves, are a part of the “Wildlands Project of America” (also global initiatives). In making a long story short, the United Nations sponsors many groups and actions to implement their Agenda for the Twenty-first Century. The IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) was formed in 1946 as the primary scientific advisor to the United Nations on environmental issues.
