Scientists advocate putting antidepressants in public water supply

I worked in a busy Emergency Room for many years as a Nurse.
Nurses by far have the darkest senses of humor of any other demographic group on the planet.
We laugh to keep from crying, and inject very black humor into unimaginable circumstances in which we routinely find oursleves.
In other words, we crack jokes at very odd times, and the average civilain would find much of what we privately say to one another during such times quite objectionable, I'm certain.

One of my favorites used to be when the ER would be rocking late in the evening, full of trauma patients, medical crises, and the usual three or four psychiatric cases, sucide attempts, and various other cases stacked upon another.
The lobby would inevitably be standing room only, and complaints, even threats, would be hurled repeatedly at the hospital staff.
Well, at times like this, one of us would invariably remark, "we need a Valium salt lick in the ER lobby", or "what we need is aerial spraying of Prozac", among others.

Well, with all that being said, it looks as if it's not just ER Nurses that have this sense of humor.
Except that this is seriously being put out there by a group of British scientists;

Lithium in public water supplies to combat widespread depression.

I can think of at least a dozen medical reasons against this offhand, not to mention the multitude of legal/constitutionall issues such a thing would ignite.

Of course, it's all conjecture, but still, it makes one consider the 'what if' factor.

Well, if all else fails, there's still the aerial spraying thing...............

Just sayin'.

God's eternal Covenant with Israel

Genesis 12:3--
“I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."

This was part of God's Covenant with Abraham.

This is why I have such a major problem with the betrayal of our brothers and sisters in Israel, and the entire Jewish people all over the world.



What is the Abrahamic Covenant?

A covenant is an agreement between two parties. There are two types of covenants: conditional and unconditional. A conditional or bilateral covenant is an agreement that is binding on both parties for its fulfillment. Both parties agree to fulfill certain conditions. If either party fails to meet their responsibilities, the covenant is broken and neither party has to fulfill the expectations of the covenant. An unconditional or unilateral covenant is an agreement between two parties, but only one of the two parties has to do something. Nothing is required of the other party.

The Abrahamic Covenant is an unconditional covenant. God made promises to Abraham that required nothing of Abraham. Genesis 15:18-21 describes a part of the Abrahamic Covenant, specifically dealing with the dimensions of the land God promised to Abraham and his descendants.

The actual Abrahamic Covenant is found in Genesis 12:1-3. The ceremony recorded in Genesis 15 indicates the unconditional nature of the covenant. The only time that both parties of a covenant would pass between the pieces of animals was when the fulfillment of the covenant was dependent upon both parties keeping commitments. Concerning the significance of God alone moving between the halves of the animals, it is to be noted that it is a smoking furnace and a flaming torch, representing God, not Abraham, which passed between the pieces. Such an act, it would seem, should be shared by both parties, but in this case it is doubtless to be explained by the fact that the covenant is principally a promise by God. He is the one who binds Himself. God caused a sleep to fall upon Abraham so that he would not be able to pass between the two halves of the animals. Fulfillment of the covenant fell to God alone.

God determined to call out a special people for Himself through whom He would bring blessing to all the nations. The Abrahamic Covenant is paramount to a proper understanding of the kingdom concept and is foundational to Old Testament theology. (1) The Abrahamic Covenant is described in Genesis 12:1–3 and is an unconditional covenant. There are no conditions attached to it (no “if” clauses, suggesting its fulfillment is dependent on man). (2) It is also a literal covenant in which the promises should be understood literally. The land that is promised should be understood in its literal or normal interpretation—it is not a figure of heaven. (3) It is also an everlasting covenant. The promises that God made to Israel are eternal.

There are three main features to the Abrahamic Covenant:

1. The promise of land (Genesis 12:1). God called Abraham from Ur of the Chaldees to a land that He would give him (Genesis 12:1). This promise is reiterated in Genesis 13:14–18 where it is confirmed by a shoe covenant; its dimensions are given in Genesis 15:18–21 (precluding any notion of this being fulfilled in heaven). The land aspect of the Abrahamic Covenant is also expanded in Deuteronomy 30:1–10, which is the Palestinian Covenant.

2. The promise of descendants (Genesis 12:2). God promised Abraham that He would make a great nation out of him. Abraham, who was 75 years old and childless (Genesis 12:4), was promised many descendants. This promise is amplified in Genesis 17:6 where God promised that nations and kings would descend from the aged patriarch. This promise (which is expanded in the Davidic Covenant of 2 Samuel 7:12–16) would eventuate in the Davidic throne with Messiah’s kingdom rule over the Hebrew people.

3. The promise of blessing and redemption (Genesis 12:3). God promised to bless Abraham and the families of the earth through him. This promise is amplified in the New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31–34; cf. Hebrews 8:6–13) and has to do with “Israel’s spiritual blessing and redemption.” Jeremiah 31:34 anticipates the forgiveness of sin. The unconditional and eternal nature of the covenant is seen in that the covenant is reaffirmed to Isaac (Genesis 21:12; 26:3–4). The “I will” promises suggest the unconditional aspect of the covenant. The covenant is further confirmed to Jacob (Genesis 28:14–15). It is noteworthy that God reaffirmed these promises amid the sins of the patriarchs, which fact further emphasizes the unconditional nature of the Abrahamic Covenant.

God’s method of fulfilling the Abrahamic Covenant is literal, inasmuch as God partially fulfilled the covenant in history: God blessed Abraham by giving him the land (Genesis 13:14–17); God blessed him spiritually (Genesis 13:8, 18; 14:22, 23; 21:22); God gave him numerous descendants (Genesis 22:17; 49:3–28). The important element of the Abrahamic Covenant, however, demands a future fulfillment with Messiah’s kingdom rule:

(1) Israel as a nation will possess the land in the future. Numerous Old Testament passages anticipate the future blessing of Israel and her possession of the land as promised to Abraham. Ezekiel envisions a future day when Israel is restored to the land (Ezekiel 20:33–37, 40–42; 36:1–37:28).

(2) Israel as a nation will be converted, forgiven, and restored (Romans 11:25–27).

(3) Israel will repent and receive the forgiveness of God in the future (Zechariah 12:10–14). The Abrahamic Covenant finds its ultimate fulfillment in connection with the return of Messiah to rescue and bless His people Israel. It is through the nation Israel that God promised in Genesis 12:1–3 to bless the nations of the world. That ultimate blessing will issue in the forgiveness of sins and Messiah’s glorious kingdom reign on earth.


Mike Huckabee: "President Obama has betrayed Israel"

President Obama’s speech today is not going over well at all among the pro-Israel crowd.

Below is Mike Huckabee's statement. He has some harsh words for the President but can you blame him?

"President Obama has betrayed Israel and made a grievous mistake by suggesting borders of Israel go back to pre-1967 borders. This is an outrage to peace, sovereignty of Israel, and a stable Middle East. The nation of Israel was attacked in 1967 from all sides with a determination to annihilate her. Israel needs more security, not less. The Palestinians have steadfastly refused to acknowledge Israel's right to exist, despite long standing international law to the contrary. The President needs to worry less about the borders of Israel and start securing the borders of the United States."

"Obama is the new Arafat"

This is what has become of our once-close relationship with the only truly free nation in the Middle East.

I sincerely hope that the Israeli people realize that this man speaks only for himself and the Progressive Left in this country, and not the actual majority of our citizens.

I wish I could say this was a surprise, but it certainly is not.
I have been saying for years that the US would be removed-from without or within-as an ally of Israel.
Again, I say read the Bible my friends.
Prophecy is being fulfilled at an alarming rate.

Obama says Palestine must be based in 1967 borders - Yahoo! News

If this actually does come to pass, it will put the nation of Israel in mortal danger.
Look at the pre-1967 borders.
It would be a possible to bottleneck a choke pint that would split Israel in half.

Mr. Obama has once again proven himself to be an enemy of Israel and the Jewish people.


Obama says Palestine must be based in 1967 borders - Yahoo! News

"...President Barack Obama is endorsing the Palestinians' demand for their future state to be based on the borders that existed before the 1967 Middle East war, in a move that will likely infuriate Israel. Israel says the borders of a Palestinian state have to be determined through negotiations.

In a speech outlining U.S. policy in the Middle East and North Africa, Obama on Thursday sided with the Palestinians' opening position a day ahead of a visit to Washington by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu is vehemently opposed to referring to the 1967 borders.

Until Thursday, the U.S. position had been that the Palestinian goal of a state based on the 1967 borders, with agreed land swaps, should be reconciled with Israel's desire for a secure Jewish state through negotiations...."

Legislation would allow the President to unilaterally declare War, even against US citizens

What if the President could bypass Congressional approval when considering military actions?

President Obama has done so in the case of Libya, and President Bush's Administration misled the public as to the reasons to invade Iraq. ( I personally think Bush was misled himself, but I digress..)

What if the President could authorize the us of US combat forces against the citizens within the US itself?

Well, my friends, it seems that there is a piece of legislation on the Congressional blotter that would do just this. It's part of the "National Defense Authorization Act" being deliberated by Congress.

Congressional Bill to allow the President to unilaterally use military forces to wage war, even within the US!!!

As I've been trying to tell people, the military is already being conditioned to the idea of being used against the citizens of this country.

read this from the Army Times from 2008;

Army Times article;

about 2/3 down the article;

"...they’ll learn new skills, use some of the ones they acquired in the war zone and more than likely will not be shot at while doing any of it.

They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.

Training for homeland scenarios has already begun at Fort Stewart and includes specialty tasks such as knowing how to use the “jaws of life” to extract a person from a mangled vehicle; extra medical training for a CBRNE incident; and working with U.S. Forestry Service experts on how to go in with chainsaws and cut and clear trees to clear a road or area.

The 1st BCT’s soldiers also will learn how to use “the first ever nonlethal package that the Army has fielded,” 1st BCT commander Col. Roger Cloutier said, referring to crowd and traffic control equipment and nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them.....


Yes, they do say that some of the training isn't meant to be used domestically, but the entire rest of it is unconstitutional.

The US military is not  to be used against its own citizens for "crowd control" or "civil unrest".

Call me paranoid, but I have been to numerous places that were supposedly "Democracies" that used its military against its own people. It was wrong then, and its wrong now.

More information is needed here.



Iran denies UN report it exchanged missiles with N. Korea

Gee, I wonder if the N. Koreans are also giving the Iranians access to their nuclear technology??

The "mainstream media" is blind, dumb, and stupid.

Couple this with the Iranian missile bases under construction in Venezuela, and you have a recipe for disaster.

Only with these guys, there isn't a "mutually assured destruction" deterrent like there was with the Soviets.

The Iranians would be only too happy to martyr themselves. They think that something like this is exactly what is required to usher the return of their saviour, the "12th Imam".

And Hugo Chavez?

He's just plain crazy.

This needs intervention.



Iran denies UN report it exchanged missiles with N. Korea


Iran building Missile Base in Venezuela

I am too young to remember the Cuban Misslie Crisis.

I was born October 11 1962, during the height of the tensions, when the US and the Soviet Union stood on the brink of thermonuclear war.

My mother, however, remembers it vividly. She has told me many times of the fear, the terror, of those days. She was 18 years old, a young wife, and new mother of yours truly.

I am now 48 years old, and the father of four, grandfather of four (so far).

Are we to relive the terror of October 1962?

Will the Iranians follow through?

Will the Obama Administration do anything?

These are interesting times, my friends.................



BERLIN – The Iranian government is moving forward with the construction of rocket launch bases in Venezuela, the German daily Die Welt wrote in its Thursday edition.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is Teheran's most important South American ally.

Iran is building intermediate- range missile launch pads on the Paraguaná Peninsula, and engineers from a construction firm – Khatam al-Anbia – owned by the Revolutionary Guards visited Paraguaná in February. Amir al-Hadschisadeh, the head of the Guard's Air Force, participated in the visit, according to the report. Die Welt cited information from "Western security insiders."

The rocket bases are to include measures to prevent air attacks on Venezuela as well as commando and control stations.

The Iranian military involvement in the project extends to bunker, barracks and watch tower construction. Twenty-meter deep rocket silos are planned. The cost of the Venezuelan military project is being paid for with Iranian oil revenue. The Iranians paid in cash for the preliminary phase of the project and, the total cost is expected to amount to "dozens of millions" of dollars, Die Welt wrote.

The Paraguaná Peninsula is on the coast of Venezuela and is roughly 120 kilometers from America's main South American partner, Columbia.

According to Die Welt, the clandestine agreement between Venezuela and Iran would mean the Chavez government would fire rocket at Iran's enemies should the Islamic Republic face military strikes.

Meanwhile the German press agency (DPA) reported on Friday that Germany will not contest the placement of the Hamburg- based European- Iranian Trade Bank (EIH) on the EU sanctions list at the end of the month. The US Treasury Department sanctioned the EIH last year, saying it was one of the most important institutions in Europe for financing Iran's missile and nuclear proliferation programs. Germany was the subject of criticism from American, French, British and Israeli officials because it refused to shut the EIH.

The EIH plays a crucial role in facilitating financial transactions for midsize German firms that are active in Iran. German- Iranian total trade amounted to over 4 billion euros in 2010, making German Iran's No. 1 EU trade partner.

50 Things Every American Should Know About The Collapse Of The Economy

A very comprehensive ( and revealing ) read.



50 Things Every American Should Know About The Collapse Of The Economy


Israel-Palestinian violence erupts on three borders | Reuters

I can't help but be suspicious of the timing on this.
We know that the Obama Administration is pushing hard for Israel to grant land to the "Palestinians" so they can create their own country.

Add to this the recent revolutions (and takeovers by Muslim fundamentalists) in numerous other Middle Eastern nations, and the deck is stacked even tighter against Israel.

The final straw?

A United States, with an anti-Israeli President that will not intervene in any action directed at Israel.

Of course, this has all been foretold...............

Read your Bibles.



Israel-Palestinian violence erupts on three borders | Reuters

Violence erupted on Israel's borders with Syria, Lebanon and Gaza on Sunday, leaving at least eight dead and dozens wounded, as Palestinians marked what they term "the catastrophe" of Israel's founding in 1948.

Israeli troops shot at protesters in three separate locations to prevent crowds from crossing Israeli frontier lines in the deadliest such confrontation in years.

Israeli and Syrian media reports said Israeli gunfire killed four people after dozens of Palestinian refugees infiltrated the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights from Syria, along a disputed border that has been quiet for decades.

Witnesses on the nearby Lebanese frontier said four Palestinians were killed after Israeli forces fired at rock-throwing protesters to prevent them from crossing the border.

The Lebanese army had also earlier fired in the air in an attempt to hold back the crowds.

On Israel's tense southern border with the Gaza Strip, Israeli gunfire wounded 60 Palestinians as demonstrators approached Israel's fence with the Hamas Islamist-run enclave, medical workers said.

In Tel Aviv, Israel's commercial hub, a truck driven by an Arab Israeli slammed into vehicles and pedestrians, killing one man and injuring 17 people.

Police were trying to determine whether the incident was an accident or an attack. Witnesses said the driver, who was arrested, ran amok with his truck in downtown traffic.


Israeli security forces had been on alert for violence on Sunday, the day Palestinians mark the "Nakba," or catastrophe, of Israel's founding in a 1948 war, when hundreds of thousands of their brethren fled or were forced to leave their homes.

In the Druze village of Majdal Shams, on the Golan Heights captured by Israel from Syria in 1967, Mayor Dolan Abu Salah said between 40 and 50 Nakba demonstrators from Syria tore through the frontier fence.

Hundreds of protesters flooded the lush green valley that marks the border area, waving Palestinian flags. Israeli troops attempted to mend the breached fence, firing at what the army described as infiltrators.

"We are seeing here an Iranian provocation, on both the Syrian and the Lebanese frontiers, to try to exploit the Nakba day commemorations," said the army's chief spokesman, Lieutenant-Colonel Yoav Mordechai.

Syria is home to 470,000 Palestinian refugees and its leadership, now facing fierce internal unrest, had in previous years prevented protesters from reaching the frontier fence.

"This appears to be a cynical and transparent act by the Syrian leadership to deliberately create a crisis on the border so as to distract attention from the very real problems that regime is facing at home," said a senior Israeli government official who declined to be named.

In a Nakba protest in the occupied West Bank, Palestinian youths threw rocks at Israeli soldiers, who fired tear gas and rubber bullets in a clash at the Israeli military checkpoint outside the city of Ramallah -- a constant flashpoint.

A Palestinian teenager was shot dead during protests in Jerusalem on Friday. Police said it was unclear who had shot him and they were investigating.

That shooting took place in the tense neighborhood of Silwan in East Jerusalem, where violence regularly breaks out between Palestinian stone throwers and Israeli police and Jewish settlers.

Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of the state they intend to establish in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Egyptian Muslims burning Christian Churches, murdering & injuring Christians

O mighty media, where is thy holy outrage?

Oh, wait........................


"....Muslim mobs set two Cairo churches on fire overnight during sectarian clashes that left 12 dead and more than 200 injured. The deepening religious violence in military-ruled Egypt exacerbated an already chaotic and lawless transition to democracy.

Mobs of ultraconservative Muslims attacked the St. Menas church in the Cairo slum of Imbaba late Saturday following rumors that a Christian woman married to a Muslim man had been abducted. Local residents said a separate mob of youths armed with knives and machetes attacked the Virgin Mary church several blocks away with firebombs. the months that followed the toppling of Mubarak on Feb. 11, there has been a sharp rise in sectarian tensions, fueled in part by newly active ultraconservative Muslim movement, known as the Salafis.


The once quiescent Salafis have become more assertive post-revolution in trying to spread their ultraconservative version of an Islamic way of life. In particular, they have focused their wrath on Egypt's Christians, who make up 10 percent of the country's 80 million people...."


So , 8 million Christians in Egypt are either being actively persecuted, or are in danger of direct persecution by the remaining 72 million Egyptians (overwhelmingly Muslim), and the so-called "mainstream media" is just giving them a pass on this??

Again I point straight at the media, not just in the US, but in the entire Western world, for aiding and abetting the persecution of Christians by their own silence.

Lord Jesus, please return soon for your church......

About 1 in 7 Americans receive Food Stamps


In no way am I disparaging anyone that receives Food Stamps who needs the assistance.

I personally know folks that do, and almost all of them do so because their financial situation is pretty bleak.
I also know (indirectly) at least one person that gets them simply because she can, and she sells them for extra cash.

-end disclaimer-

If this doesn't reveal a fundamental truth about the US economy, I don't know what does.

The government is set to release the April unemployment data this Friday. In truth, no matter what the percentage of unemployed, those numbers are going to have been spun and skewed by the government to give the rosiest picture possible.

This article does much more to reveal the real truth about the actual magnitude of a fundamental problem in this country;

the citizens are hurting financially, whether they're employed, "underemployed", or jobless.

While the price of food, gasoline, and almost everything else is skyrocketing, one thing remains stable;
the wages being earned are NOT rising to meet the level of inflation, in fact, they typically aren't rising at all.

This results in average citizens' money not buying what it did even a month ago.

I know that my own household is feeling the financial pinch dramatically.
Gas has gone up enormously, and so have our grocery bills.
Of course, our income hasn't went up a bit, so there's no such thing as 'disposable income' in my humble home.
No extra money.
No vacation this summer. (again)

I'm sure this is a trend for most other Americans. My wife and I both earn well above the US average, have no credit card debt, and both vehicles are paid for. All we have is our mortgage payment and monthly utilities. ( Thank you, Dave Ramsey.... )

If my family is feeling this crunch, I can only imagine what it must be like for a family of four that literally makes half of what we do, yet has a mortgage, car payments, credit card bills, and still has to buy groceries and gas for the car.

I promise you, this week's unemployment numbers, however rosy the government tries to paint them, will not show the real truth of what's happening in this nation.
The truth is, the actual number of unemployed is at least double whatever adjusted number the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases to the public on Friday.
Too many ways to skew the data-they don't take into account the amount of people who have been out of work long-term, and those that are no longer eligible for unemployment benefits, for example.

Couple this with the fact that 1 in 7 ( that's 14.3%, folks ) of all US citizens are on Food Stamps, and you begin to get a much truer feel of what this country is facing right now.

And it's sure not the butterflies and lollipops the Obama Administration is pushing.



the Article;

Growth in the food stamp program appeared to reach a plateau in February — with 14.3% of the population relying on the safety net program.

The number of food stamp recipients was essentially flat in February, the most recent month available, with 44.2 million Americans receiving benefits, according a new report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The food stamp program ballooned during the recession as workers lost their jobs or saw their hours and income reduced. The rise in recipients has begun to flatten in recent months, which may mean that as the economy is improving fewer Americans are seeking to join the program. Enrollment in the program is still high though, with 11.6% more people tapping benefits in February than the same month a year earlier.

Food stamp numbers aren’t seasonally adjusted though, meaning a variety of factors could influence the monthly tallies and the program could grow again in coming months.
Mississippi and Oregon were among the states with the largest share of the population utilizing food stamps in February: At least one in five residents in each state were receiving benefits.
Wyoming had the lowest rate of recipients with just 6.6% of the state’s residents using food stamps.

The Danger in Severing God from America's Identity

The Danger in Severing God from America's Identity

It is beyond dispute that there is a link between socialism and American progressivism.  Both flawed ideologies are predicated upon the soundness of a large and powerful government designed to disperse the fruits of labor by seizing means and property from the productive.  And as many conservatives are quick to point out, nothing could be more antithetical to the ideals scribed in the Constitution      

But beyond the insidious application of socialism under the less condemning titles of "progressivism" and "social justice," the liberal left poses another threat to America that is less defended.  It has, for over a century, laid perpetual siege upon Christianity, seeking to excise all Christian influence from American government and its institutions piecemeal, from banning prayer in schools to seeking taxpayer-funded abortions.

This phasing-out of Christianity's influence in American government has been applauded by secular liberals.  They are convinced that God has no place in American governance, steadfastly clinging to the false belief that the First Amendment implies this mandatory "separation."

Our leader, too, works feverishly to sever the relationship between God and America, and to downplay the latter's reliance on the former.  Consider that Barack Obama has gone out of his way on numerous occasions to describe that "we are no longer a Christian nation."  Or consider that he has wished goodwill to Muslims around the world on the uniquely Islamic holidays of Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha, but failed this past weekend to offer the same courtesy to American Christians to commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

The fact that America has a president that is working hard to separate Christianity from the American identity is certainly disheartening.  But what is really terrifying is the looming outcome if he succeeds. 

Eugene D. Genovese, as referenced by Dr. Thomas Woods in his book A Politically Incorrect Guide to American History, was an open Marxist for most of his life.  Toward the end of his life, he denounced Communism, and in 1994, revealed what he found to be the true source of socialism's evil.

The "horrors" of socialism, according to Genovese, were not the result of "Stalinist or other corruptions of high ideals."  Rather, they were caused by "a deep flaw in our understanding of human nature -- its frailty and its possibilities -- and by our inability to replace the moral and ethical baseline provided by the religion we have dismissed with indifference, not to say contempt."  And, even more specifically, he relates, "Having... scoffed at the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Temple Mount, we ended a seventy-year experiment with socialism with little more to our credit than tens of millions of corpses."

His meaning is simple.  The gravest dangers of socialism are only realized when a people take their faith from God and place it in frail humans, who, by nature, are capable of unspeakable atrocities.  It was not because Communists believed in socialism that led to their unquestionable evil; it was the forceful extraction of God from the people's ideology.

So we should be afraid, not because we have cobbled a path to socialism for over one hundred years, but because that time has been simultaneously spent directing America away from the Christian God of its founding.

The fact that the progressive movement has been bent on shepherding its flock away from God has yielded frightening trends.  Today, the apostolic devotion reserved by our founding fathers for God has become replaced in many American liberals by devotion to large government and Barack Obama.  There are so many among them that unconditionally support him; African-Americans who support him for his race alone, leftists that support him for being something other than Republican, and even anti-war elements that support him in spite of escalating the war in Afghanistan and attacking Libya. 

In truth, we have had a saving grace that has made us less susceptible to experience the evils socialism can bring.  America, since inception, has been closely aligned with God.  God is referenced on our buildings, our currency, and is invoked to preside over our justice system.  In terms of America's character, as well, there is evidence that proves Christianity's influence.   For example, I've heard it said by Christians that atheists lack a moral compass, but with the many atheists I've known, this is wholly untrue.  The truth is that American atheists absolutely have a moral compass, and it comes from God; they simply choose not to recognize the correlation.  The tenets of Christianity have shaped American morality, and therefore, this moral compass has been engrained in most of them through the American experience.

Because what is American and what is Christian are often the same, disassociating the two takes considerable effort.  But after one hundred years of a calculated progressive assault, there is a gradual and increasing severance.

Our founding fathers knew the danger Eugene Genovese would discover 200 years later.  They clearly did not believe in the constancy of men that become tyrants, but it certain that they believed in the constancy of God that grants us reason.  It was with this in mind when, in a moment of brilliance and clarity, they forged the greatest and freest nation this Earth has ever seen.


All that needs to be added to this is "Amen".


AL Qaeda to unleash nuclear weapon in respons to Bin Laden's death?

Read the article below, and bear in mind it was published last Tuesday, well before the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden.

It certainly would not surprise me if they did something like this in retaliation.

maybe that's why they gave him a dignified burial at sea in accordance with Islamic law...........

Here's Why The US Is Screwed

This is a long read, with lots of graphs and charts, but it details exactly what the United States' financial problems are.


Here's Why The US Is Screwed
