  1. 51st State?

    Interesting.  I guess the writers tongue was so far in his cheek that nobody could see it was written tongue in cheek.
  2. 51st State?

    I probably could have placed this article in the humor, but considering the way things are going with the U.S. government and their insane actions as of late, I decided to to place it here . . . . who knows it could happen.   (A joke?)
  3. Help for the History impaired

    Those that don't learn history are doomed to live through it's horror again.  What ever happened to the Christian churches in Asia and Africa?
  4. So what could be happening behind the scenes in the supposed "Refuge crisis".  
  5. Pain in old age

    Paul asked God repeatedly to remove the thorn in the flesh.  God told him in so many words to quit asking.   2 Cor 12:7-10 7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. KJV Rom 8:18-28 18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. 24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. 26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. KJV    
  6. Inside the Syrian War

    Will there be peace in our time?
  7. No Problem!

    I am certain the elite and the intelligentsia have a solution.  If they don't then I am sure the European citizens themselves will come up with one . . . . And it ain't gonna be pretty.
  8. Idiots are busy getting the idiots ready to vote for idiots.
  9. The Judgment of Babylon

    Then it will be called North Mexico.
  10. Followers of the religion of peace strike again.  As usual the main stream media attempts to keep the crazy Christians calm by not "printing all the news that fit to print".
  11. Defective Orthodoxy

    Martyn Lloyd-Jones speaks on some things that hinder revival RV5D.mp3
  12. Donald Trumps Everyone Else . . . . Not

    If the west would shut down the invasion from the south and send the immigrants that don't wish to assimilate back home the Muslims would not be such a threat.
  13. The American people are so easily fooled by the rich.  Donald Trump got rich and successful by his cunning, not his wisdom.  When I contemplate his tough talk on foreign policy and his bellicosity and his lack of wisdom I fear his finger on the nuclear button.   I think the only candidate running in either party that would not go to war with Russia (on purpose or by accident) is Bernie Sanders.  Do I think Bernie Sanders would be good for America? NO WAY!  I find myself in the same position I was in at the last election.  Ain't none of them fools gonna' buy my vote.  
  14. The 7th Shemita is here

  15. “To those who had easily endured toils, dangers, and doubtful and difficult circumstances, ease and wealth, the objects of desire to others, became a burden and a trouble. At first the love of money, and then that of power, began to prevail, and these became, as it were, the sources of every evil. For avarice subverted honesty, integrity, and other honorable principles, and, in their stead, inculcated pride, inhumanity, contempt of religion, and general venality. Ambition prompted many to become deceitful; to keep one thing concealed in the breast, and another ready on the tongue; to estimate friendships and enmities, not by their worth, but according to interest; and to carry rather a specious countenance than an honest heart. These vices at first advanced but slowly, and were sometimes restrained by correction; but afterwards, when their infection had spread like a pestilence, the state was entirely changed, and the government, from being the most equitable and praiseworthy, became rapacious and insupportable.”  Sounds a lot like a historian describing the crumbling of today's biggest and most powerful empire, the United States.  Actually it is not but it is the Roman historian and government insider Sallust blasting the decline of virtue in government of the Roman Empire of Julius Caesar. Time is running out for another wicked nation that forgot their first love.
