COUNTING THE COSTS

Image
Yesterday the Supreme Court heard arguments as to whether or not homosexual marriage is a civil right guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. If the court rules in the affirmative it will lay the groundwork for the persecution of Christians unlike anything we have ever experienced. Anytime I talk about matters of faith I like to give a disclaimer. I am an evil, evil man and no sin is worse than any other. Whether your sin or my sin is lying, stealing, adultery, murder, homosexuality or any in a list of sins. All sin separates us from God. A few years ago I was listing my shortcomings to a friend and he said something that gave me pause. He said; "Greg, I believe that if someone walked into this room and put a gun to your head and commanded you to renounce Jesus or die, you would take a bullet". It is easy to say what you would do when you are not under duress. Although I crucify Christ daily in the way that I live my life, I have to agree that I would die before I would deny him…

E Pluribus Unum to Ex Uno Plures

The other day I saw a news story on a local station about illegal alien teenagers graduating from some school. The reporter called them undocumented aliens and of course I sat there screaming at the screen. "No they are illegal". All I ever see in the local or national Democratic news media are positive stories about them. There are no segments about the financial and cultural cost of illegal immigration They never report on the negative impact that they are having on America. On our school system, medical system, justice system, welfare, and entitlement system. Or the way that cheap labor forces down the wages of everyday Americans and undermines our Republic through voter fraud. These particular kids in the news story looked clean cut and are probably going to be contributing members of American society. No nation on earth however can sustain an unlimited flow of illegal immigrants as we are doing today. Like a plumber, we turn off the water supply. Then we can fix the …

March 1, 1954 / Puerto Rican Terrorists Fire On Congress

Image
The Treaty of Paris that ended the Spanish American War in 1898 ceded Puerto Rico as a territory to the United States. Spain had owned Puerto Rico for 400 years but just before the war Puerto Rico was granted autonomy. Many Puerto Ricans believed that Spain had no legal right to give away land that it did not own. Puerto Rico adopted its Constitution in 1952 and became an unincorporated, organized territory of the United States with commonwealth status, which angered hardcore nationalists. On March 1, 1954 three men and one woman opened fire on Congress while it was in session with machine pistols from the visitors gallery. They were four Puerto Rican nationalists named Lolita Lebron, Rafael Miranda, Andrés Figueroa Cordero, and Irving Flores Rodríguez.

  That morning they had taken a train into Washington. Miranda suggested that the group postpone the attack because it was late and the weather was rainy. Lolita said "I am alone" and walked toward the inside of the capital…

IRAN'S FINAL SOLUTION

The nuclear arms race between America and the Soviet Union started with the Trinity nuclear test at Alamogordo New Mexico on July 16, 1945. America has gone through several phases of development since then. The invention of the hydrogen bomb under President Truman. Eisenhower's (New Look) in which our TRIAD system was developed consisting of strategic bombers. ICBM's or land based intercontinental ballistic missiles and SLBM's or submarine launched ballistic missiles. Eisenhower knew that it was cheaper to build up nuclear forces as opposed to conventional forces. This nuclear build-up was the muscle behind Eisenhower's policy of Massive Retaliation. During the 1960 presidential election Kennedy made the charge that there was a missile gap between America and the Soviet Union. There was a missile gap but America was not on the short end of the stick. We had a 17 to 1 nuclear superiority over the Soviet Union.This American superiority prompted Khrushchev to risk plac…
