THE DEMISE OF DETROIT        My wife grew up under the great political promises of prosperity from Michigan leaders.  We spent our wedding night in Detroit almost twenty years ago before flying out on our honeymoon. The city was much larger, more prosperous, less bankrupt, and less “bull-dozed” in those days.  Michigan has…

  An article on the Blaze reported that “Prominent GOP leaders have praised Ayn Rand’s philosophy and beliefs. But Rand made it clear that you can’t follow her and Christ. The GOP budget, authored by Rand acolyte Paul Ryan, is the perfect example.” How can an atheist like Ann Rand and Jesus have anything in…

We call this the…

Everyone heard about Snuffoluffagus, but no one ever saw him.  He reminds me of the debt ceiling.  You hear about the limit to Washington DC’s spending but we never actually see the ceiling.   Every time we get near it is raised.   We’re told that we don’t raise the debt ceiling we will not…

As Republicans like John Boehner and Democrats like John Kerry agree argue the moral case for war, let’s look at when God says it is okay to go to war from Deut 20 and look at the principles for today. 1. Unlike other nations who just attacked, God’s people were to first make an offer…

The President and Secretary of State tell  us we need to go to war because a country in the Middle East has Weapons of Mass Destruction.  The irony is not lost on most of us.  Before we rush into another war, perhaps we should consult the good book.  Since elephants and donkeys seems to love…
