I don’t know why I should be by now, but I was surprised at how many entries there are! Because I am the dictator of this blog, and Nick thought it would be a fun idea, I have labeled some of my favorite posts . I thought I could maybe choose just […]

Like SUV, like Chinese assault rifle

Kerry flip-flops again (or at least his campaign spokesman does), but I think I can explain this one!
In the October issue of Outdoor Life, Kerry is quoted as saying:
“My favorite gun is the M-16 that saved my life and that of my crew in Vietnam. I don’t own one of those now, […]

Just a pawn

It’s bad enough when your husband is taken prisoner, assumed dead in war, you marry a new man, and when you’re pregnant, your first husband shows up - but when the village council orders you to abandon your new family to rejoin your original husband who refuses to accept your second husband’s child, well that […]

Social fostering…it sounds nice…

This post belongs to a new category: No Wonder People Want to Come to America
Nine couples in China were fined and one, in this story, was fined for $94,250 and had their house sealed off because they had too many children.
[China] has stringent rules on family planning that allow couples usually to have just one […]

Is this America’s future?

The Netherlands and Belgium are moving towards euthanizing children.
“Smith [The Weekly Standard] is simply reporting what those familiar with medical policy in Europe have known for some time — the assault on children has moved out of the academy and into the hospitals and clinics of some European nations,” Solomon said. “The direct killing of […]

Catching up

Thursday, September 16th, 2004

I’ve been away from the blogosphere for a little while. Now that I’ve upgraded my computer from doorstop to laptop, I can sit here in my comfy chair wearing my fuzzy pajamas and opine for any who unwittingly wander into the land of intolerance.
I’ve gotten a kick out of catching up on […]

TV thus “may create the illusion that sex is more central to daily life than it truly is and may promote […]

My training period at work is over and the woman who has been successfully assisting my boss is gone. I’m on my own now, and blogging from work. Nothing is going on. No one is here. Just me and my manuals. For now. I hope, as the work load […]

First impressions - RNC edition

Wednesday, September 1st, 2004

My first impression of the Democratic National Convention was dominated by ugly hats. My first impression of the Republican National Convention was of the content, not the nutty getups. There are a few people with strange headgear, but most people appear to be everyday folks. The Republicans don’t seem to posses any […]

The Joy of the Lord is my Strength

“Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength..”
-Nehemiah 8:10
When my flesh rears its ugly head and the temptation to somehow or other put creation above the Creator leads me to feel weak, wondering how I can possibly muster up the strength to be a “good Christian,” what I need to remember […]
