Is it just me or is there much MORE than “something not quite right” with Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, etc?

Five days ago, Det. Sean Suiter, a married father of five and an 18-year veteran with the Baltimore Police, was patrolling the streets of West Baltimore around 5pm last Wednesday when he saw suspicious activity. Suiter approached a man and was shot point blank in the head, in a summary execution. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition where he later died of his injuries.

Residents were prohibited from entering their own neighborhood unless they showed proper...

Believe the works.

This post was to initially be about John chapter 10:24-39 and it still will be but as I typed the title it occurred to me just how true that is of everyone and just how unwilling everyone is to have their opinions shaped by what they actually see. This applies not only religiously but to all observations in all relationships. The most glaring of these are political, we see the “works” of our representatives (and in many cases the non-work) and rather than believing what they actually have done we choose to believe their ever flapping gums when they tell us what they are going to do. Compare this with the passage below. Jesus has been going around giving sight to the blind, feeding thousands, causing the lame to walk, etc. and the Jews ask him if He is the Christ to which He answers, yes (who else could perform such miracles beside the Son of God?), and the Jews reaction is...

Pretty bad when age old political jokes are no longer funny.

Most idiotic article title yet.

By on Oct 24, 2017

The article copied below is entitled, The Men Taking Classes to Unlearn Toxic Masculinity, and presents an ignorance of human nature that brands the fields of psychology, public education and governmental policy makers as the preposterous, justifying excuse makers and band aids they are. How foolish to think you can change human nature. Feminizing men does nothing except endanger other men as well as women. Men behave like asses because men have always behaved like asses. If a boy is raised in a home where the father loves the mother he will treat women with respect if he is not raised in a home with a loving father and respectful mother or nor father at all he will likely grow up a selfish pig for that is the base nature of man without the stern hand and good example of his father. How idiotic to believe you can change the behavior of grown men by making them more like women. To be...

Aren’t these guys entitled…

to get their food faster than it can be made? And I am quite sure they are entitled to pull a gun to see that it happens. And surely no one can look at the photo and tell me this young man has anything but purity in his heart. I think there should be a huge protest for surely this is a clear case of discrimination. 3 teens arrested after armed threat to kill McDonalds employees when food was not ready Kyle Emmanuel Harris (Fairfax County Police) CHANTILLY, Va. (ABC7) —  When their order was not ready as fast as they wanted, three men argued with McDonalds employees and one showed a gun and threatened to kill the employees, police say. The three men went into the McDonalds in the Chantilly Shopping Center at about 9 p.m. Thursday. When their food was not ready, an argument broke out. One man pulled up his shirt to show a gun in his waistband and threatened to kill the employees,...

George Washington, Profit or hopeless romantic?

By on Sep 23, 2017

In 1789 as George Washington reluctantly became our first President he wrote a 70 page inaugural address which was never used. In it Washington expresses his faith in the American people and their ability to judge good leaders: “until the people of America shall have lost all virtue; until they shall have become totally insensible to the difference between freedom & slavery; until they shall have been reduced to such poverty of spirit–as to be willing to sell that preeminent blessing, the birthright of Freemen, for a mess of pottage; in short, until they shall have been found incapable of governing themselves and ripe for a master those consequences, I think, can never arrive…” George was nothing if not wise. The prescience shown by the string of “untils” demonstrates his knowledge of the character of man. Now, a pessimist would argue those...
