Quotable Martin

Sunday, October 31st, 2004

“If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ.”
- Martin Luther
Thanks, Martin!

Quotable Cronkite

Sunday, October 31st, 2004

Are you kidding me?
I’m a little inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing.
-Walter Cronkite on the bin Laden video that came out just before the 2004 election.

Are you kidding, Cronkite?

Wow:

Is Osama campaigning for Bush now?

Sunday, October 31st, 2004

The Washington Post has an interesting article on the part of the recent bin Laden tape al-Jazeera never showed you:
Osama bin Laden doesn’t seem nearly so cocky in the unedited version of a videotape aired on al-Jazeera, complaining that the manhunt against him has hampered al Qaeda…On the tape, bin Laden also says […]

Setup

Sunday, October 31st, 2004

I don’t know if a picture exists of Kerry playing football while not looking like a goob, but this isn’t it. Has he not seen these pictures? Why does he keep signing up for this?
The photo caption reads:
Democratic Presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., throws a football with staff members during an unscheduled […]

Simply funny

Clever Humor

This is really clever.
Go to Google, type in “French military victories” and click “I’m feeling lucky.”

Marijuana, Bears and Democracy

Friday, October 29th, 2004

There are three ballot measures in Alaska that matter to me:
BALLOT MEASURE NO. 2
Initiative to Legalize Marijuana
This bill would remove civil and criminal penalties under state law for persons 21 years or older who grow, use, sell or give away marijuana or hemp products. State or local government could not require a permit or license […]

A Must See

An amazing alaskan sunrise.

18,000 year old soggy bones? Really?

Thursday, October 28th, 2004

How do you suppose non-mineralized bone with the consistency of ‘wet blotting paper’ survived for 18,000 years?
Answers in Genesis has some striking biblically based observations about the Indonesian find:
There is every reason to believe that assigning a separate species name is not justified at all. These remains, despite their smallness, give every indication of humanity. […]

Career or Family?

Thursday, October 28th, 2004

I’ve never understood how a job where one is easily and quickly replaceable could possibly be a better measure of success and more desirable than a job where you are so important that people’s lives would be ruined if you didn’t show up.
Concerned Women for America has a good, short article on the choice women […]

The Prayer Police

Thursday, October 28th, 2004

Separation of church and state. Was it to keep the church out of the state or the state out of the church? No matter what it used to be, it is now to keep the church out of the state - and to inforce that, the state must be in the […]

Homeschooling in Germany - an update

Thursday, October 28th, 2004

Several families who were homeschooling, refusing to send their children to government schools in Germany, have been fined. They refused to pay the fine, and the fathers were taken to jail. Thank God for the advances in homeschooling here in America!

Seeing isn’t believing. GIMPing - now that’s believing.

Wednesday, October 27th, 2004

Donald from Back of the Envelope linked to a great optical illusion. I had to open it in GIMP and play around before I believed it.

ABCampaigning

Wednesday, October 27th, 2004

ABC news, in their effort to one-up CBS and the NYT when it comes to campaigning for Kerry, has been holding on to a now infamous tape of Assam the American. They say they’ve been holding on to it because the CIA is “authenticating” it. Ever since 9/11 we’ve been receiving all kinds […]

Bill Maher on Religion

Wednesday, October 27th, 2004

For the most part, Bill Maher irritates me. I normally wouldn’t bother with any of his rants or interviews, but this one seemed to be a little more honest and a little less insulting. He brings up good points. Some misunderstood, some plain as day.
He sort of believes in God, but says […]

Christian Carnival

Wednesday, October 27th, 2004

The 41st Christian Carnival is now ready for patrons at From The Anchor
Hold.

It was, like, totally awesome!!

Tuesday, October 26th, 2004

So today I was slaving over a hot desk, working myself into a frenzy with the delivery of a brand new shiny office supply catalog when the phone rang. I answered….silence. Ahhh…must be Tony Knowles (former Governor, running for Senate against incumbent Lisa Murkowski who was appointed by her father - the governor) […]

Doing a little Catch-up

Monday, October 25th, 2004

An interesting take on leadership and IQ on Back of the Envelope.
La Shawn Barber blogs about sharing the truth in love. What a wonderful reminder!
Michelle Malkin puts the smack down on CBS/New York Times regarding the 380 tons of lost explosives - with some really great links. Thanks Michelle, for the perspective.
