My thoughts on TEA Party insurgents, and the need to support the best conservative who is electable, whether establishment or not: TEA Party Growing Pains: The US Senate Races
Thanks for telling me about "Expelled" == I found it on YouTube. Good stuff!
Politicians from both political parties need to rest in this sobering realities. One of the reasons why government must be limited -- human nature is both limited and flawed, and best to keep both at bay as much as possible.

Daniel: "I suspect he’ll run, but I've been wrong before. So we’ll see if he antes up. But until then, my friends, we’ll just have to wait, wonder and speculate." This humble attitude is so important in all that we do. We can never know the outcomes fully. Hopefully, there will be a massive realignment in our culture, politics, and future.
How you grow from childhood to adulthood is through God's grace and His gift of righteousness: "For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe." (Hebrews 5: 13)

Twelve Steps do not work. AA is a cult. Numerous studies have pointed out that decriminalizing a drug will bring down demand, crime rates, and other societal ills. Criminalizing controlled substances was a bad idea from the beginning. Addiction is not an illness, but a work of man's flesh when he tries in his own efforts to live apart from the grace of God.
Doug Giles is wrong. God is no longer judging the world, because He took out all his holy wrath on His Son Jesus: "My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world." (1 JOhn 2: 1-2, KJV) Jesus is our Mercy Seat, and the Mercy Seat for everyone in the world. Yet many people are still dead in their trespasses. We have to believe on Jesus, whom the Father sent to die for us, to live through us (John 6: 29; 1 John 4: 9) Now, there will still be consequences for sin, but they are not because of God, but the natural consequence of sin, of rejecting God's Son as Savior.
Bill Maher's libertarian side is looming larger these days. Whether for cynicism or sincerity, Maher is starting to make sense. I think more celebrity liberals are running from Obama, the way that Republicans and conservatives fled from Bush II.

One quote should never be left off of any list which catalogues the racial intolerance of liberals: "We'll have those n-ggers voting for us for the next two hundred years." -- Lyndon Baines Johnson Contrast this invidious rhetoric with the inspiration of Edward Brooke, the first popularly elected African-American US Senator, and a Republican: "Your place is anywhere you want it to be. You make that decision. It's up to you." While LBJ demeaned, MLK dreamed, and Brooke made the dream happen.
Great tribute. The Eberts, both Roger and Chaz, get two thumbs up.
David Limbaugh shares a good point. Gay-rightism is a form of "bullying" based on a culture of shame and forced conformity in public opinion. Look at all the sponsors which are threatening to abandon the Boy Scouts, should they refuse to acknowledge openly-gay members. This is wrong. I hope that the Boy Scouts chooses to stand for what is right and righteous. Homosexuality is a choice, and a bad one. It's time for conservatives, righteous people, and all who respect the truth (not numbers) to rise up and respond with the truth to this issue.
