Anyone need MORE proof?

I'm sure the die-hard atheists of the Anti-American Communist Lawyer's Union (ACLU) would love to sue the Joplin, Missouri tornado for destroying literally EVERYTHING but this...but alas, there is no defendant for the suit.

The teeming masses of journalists are so focused on the devastation and rubble that they miss the signs of His presence amongst us. Sometimes, the messes that we let accumulate in our daily lives can overburden us, and only after thoroughly scrubbing away all that is mundane and trivial are we left with what is truly important.

God's signs aren't like highway signs--big green squares with white letters and arrows on them--and they aren't always as easy to spot...but in Joplin, Missouri...on this Blessed Day, this one could hardly be more obvious!

Thanksgiving 2020

"Winston, come into the dining room, it's time to eat", Julia yelled to her husband. "In a minute, honey, it's a tie score," he answered. Actually Winston wasn't very interested in the traditional holiday football game between Detroit and Washington. Ever since the government passed the Civility in Sports Statute of 2017, outlawing tackle football for its "unseemly violence" and the "bad example it sets for the rest of the world", Winston was far less of a football fan than he used to be. Two-hand touch wasn't nearly as exciting.

Yet it wasn't the game that Winston was uninterested in. It was more the thought of eating another Tofu Turkey.

Even though it was the best type of Veggie Meat available after the government revised the American Anti-Obesity Act of 2018, adding fowl to the list of federally-forbidden foods, (which already included potatoes, cranberry sauce and mince-meat pie), it wasn't anything like real turkey. And ever since the government officially changed the name of "Thanksgiving Day" to "A National Day of Atonement" in 2020 to officially acknowledge the Pilgrims historically brutal treatment of Native Americans, the holiday had lost a lot of its luster.

Eating in the dining room was also a bit daunting. The unearthly gleam of government-mandated fluorescent light bulbs made the Tofu Turkey look even weirder than it actually was, and the room was always cold. Ever since Congress passed the Power Conservation Act of 2016, mandating all thermostats "which were monitored and controlled by the electric company" be kept at 68 degrees, every room on the north side of the house was barely tolerable throughout the entire winter.

Still, it was good getting together with family. Or at least most of the family. Winston missed his mother, who passed on in October, when she had used up her legal allotment of life-saving medical treatment. He had had many heated conversations with the Regional Health Consortium, spawned when the private insurance market finally went bankrupt, and everyone was forced into the government health care program. And though he demanded she be kept on her treatment, it was a futile effort. The RHC's resources are limited, explained the government bureaucrat Winston spoke with on the phone. "Your mother received all the benefits to which she was entitled. I'm sorry for your loss".

Ed couldn't make it either. He had forgotten to plug in his electric car last night, the only kind available after the Anti-Fossil Fuel Bill of 2019 outlawed the use of the combustion engines for everyone but government officials. The fifty mile round trip was about ten miles too far, and Ed didn't want to spend a frosty night on the road somewhere between here and there.

Thankfully, Winston's brother, John, and his wife were flying in. Winston made sure that the dining room chairs had extra cushions for the occasion. No one complained more than John about the pain of sitting down so soon after the government-mandated cavity searches at airports, which severely aggravated his hemorrhoids. Ever since a terrorist successfully smuggled a cavity bomb onto a jetliner, the TSA told Americans the added "inconvenience" was an "absolute necessity" in order to stay "one step ahead of the terrorists". Winston's own body had grown accustomed to such probing ever since the government expanded their scope to just about anywhere a crowd gathered, via Anti-Profiling Act of 2017. That law made it a crime to single out any group or individual for "unequal scrutiny", even when probable cause was involved. Thus, cavity searches at malls, train stations, bus depots, etc., etc., had become almost routine. Almost.

The Supreme Court is reviewing the statute, but most Americans expect a Court composed of six progressives and three conservatives to leave the law intact. "A living Constitution is extremely flexible", said the Court's eldest member, Elena Kagan. "Europe has had laws like this one for years. We should learn from their example", she added.

Winston's thoughts turned to his own children. He got along fairly well with his 12-year-old daughter, Brittany, mostly because she ignored him. Winston had long ago surrendered to the idea that she could text anyone at any time, even during Atonement Dinner. Their only real confrontation had occurred when he limited her to 50,000 texts a month, explaining that was all he could afford. She whined for a week, but got over it.

His 16-year-old son, Jason, was another matter altogether. Perhaps it was the constant bombarding he got in public school that global warming, the bird flu, terrorism or any of a number of other calamities were "just around the corner", but Jason had developed a kind of nihilistic attitude that ranged between simmering surliness and outright hostility. It didn't help that Jason had reported his father to the police for smoking a cigarette in the house, an act made criminal by the Smoking Control Statute of 2018, which outlawed smoking anywhere within 500 feet of another human being. Winston paid the $5000 fine, which might have been considered excessive before the American dollar became virtually worthless as a result of QE13. The latest round of quantitative easing the federal government initiated was, once again, to "spur economic growth". This time they promised to push unemployment below its years-long rate of 18%, but Winston was not particularly hopeful.

Yet the family had a lot for which to be thankful, Winston thought, before remembering it was a Day of Atonement. At least he had his memories. He felt a twinge of sadness when he realized his children would never know what life was like in the Good Old Days, long before government promises to make life "fair for everyone" realized their full potential. Winston, like so many of his fellow Americans, never realized how much things could change when they didn't happen all at once, but little by little, so people could get used to them.

He wondered what might have happened if the public had stood up while there was still time, maybe back around 2010, when all the real nonsense began. Maybe we wouldn't be where we are today if we'd just said "enough is enough" when we had the chance, he thought.

ACLU = Anti-American Communist Lawyers Union

Once again, this despicable group of anti-American thugs is on the march to remove the First Amendment right to freedom of religious expression under the non-existent "separation of church and state" myth. You can read the full story by clicking HERE, but we all know the tale too well. It seems that a lone attendee (probably an ACLU plant) took offense to the 20-foot high cross adorning the pictured auditorium's entrance. For 70 years, the seniors of Neptune High School have marched across the stage in this historic arena as they embarked upon life's journey after receiving their diplomas.

"School officials responded by agreeing to change the graduation program to remove the student-led invocation and two hymns -- one titled Onward Christian Soldiers -- to rid the ceremony of any religious references" reports Cristina Corbin of

"The Great Auditorium, a nationally recognized landmark, is steeped in history. The building has hosted Ulysses S. Grant and six other U.S. presidents, as well as 27 of New Jersey’s governors. Mark Twain was a member of the auditorium’s board of directors, and religious leaders like the Rev. Billy Graham have spoken there."

The school board is standing firm even though the ACLU has threatened to proceed with legal action if the venue is not changed. Neptune Public Schools Superintendent David Mooij should be commended for his firm stance against this assault, and any attorney who values America's FOUNDING PRINCIPLES needs to stand with him and the school district on this issue.

Sorry Mr Gingrich...

I regret that after years of supporting you, following all your writings and hoping beyond hope that you would jump into the BIG have slapped me in the face! You have proven that no matter how long the politician is out of the Beltway zombie-zone, you are still a politician.

Your description of Paul Ryan's fiscal plan as "right-wing social engineering" was like a knife to the gut. You just don't get it Newt...if returning to the CONSTITUTION is what you deem "radical change", then you are seated too far to the left for me. Standing up for whatever will "win" rather than whatever is "right" is how we, as a country, have arrived where we are. We are beyond the "pass the law to find out what's in it" stage, and I hope that the good ideas that you have put forth will benefit a more Constitutionally-driven candidate.

I regret that I am publicly announcing my withdrawal of any support for your or your Presidential campaign...stick to writing books, Newt.

Advertisers are held to relatively strict standards with regards to marketing their products. For the longest time, they weren't even ALLOWED to mention their opposition in their ads, giving birth to the name "Brand X" over a similar-looking logo. And if they furnish FALSE information about their product, or their opponent's product, then lawsuits come a-flying!

Think of the possibilities if our POLITICIANS were held to the same standards as our advertisers.

There is a thin, ethical line between ADVERTISING and PROPAGANDA. Advertisers try to get you to buy something that you don't necessarily need. Propagandists try to sell you something that you definitely don't want...

HOPE AND CHANGE was a brilliant propaganda campaign to sell you a turd sandwich called SOCIALISM.

A Committed Liberal who Should Be Committed!

I normally reserve the term "loathe" or "detest" for a select few human beings...generally those of loathsome or detestable character. Michael Moore, the Westboro Baptist Church and Jane Fonda to name a few, but a new face has earned it's place on that list...course, since Osama bin Laden's brief and final meeting with SEAL Team Six, there was an empty slot.

Meet Alan Colmes, a diehard, committed liberal and avowed Bush-hater. Alan makes frequent appearances on Fox News Channel shows, due to their dedication to providing BOTH sides of a discussion...the intelligent side and the "foaming at the mouth" side, of which Alan normally provides the latter.

His meltdown on The O'Reilly Factor's Tuesday BARACK AND A HARD PLACE segment was epic. (see video HERE) He dismisses outright that the intelligence gained from harsh tactics used on THREE named Al-Qaeda terrorists led directly to OBL's front door. The icing on this psychotic, blathering piece of fruitcake? "It's just a STUNT designed to give props to burnish the reputation of our WORST PRESIDENT EVER, George W. Bush and his hideous foreign policy".

Get a clue, Alan.

Giving Credit Where It's Due

Mr. President,

Congratulations on the success of the Bin Laden mission. While you are busily heaping praise upon yourself and taking credit for the entire operation, let's not forget a few facts:

a) The intelligence that led to this raid came during your predecessor's term;

b) The intelligence came from the "enhanced interrogation techniques" which you continuously vilified him for as a candidate;

c) It was the tip of the spear, our courageous SEALs, whose paychecks you were willing to use as "collateral" during the government shutdown "crisis".

Let's make sure that credit is given where credit is due--your predecessor deserves quite a bit of it as well.
