Spreading the news one blog post at a time!

1. 15 years after Columbine: How the media turned me into a ‘gun control advocate’ : “The ability to maintain a proper sight picture on a vital area of a dangerous suspect who poses an imminent threat of death or great bodily harm to an innocent person. This control must be maintained throughout the trigger squeeze up until and including the moment the gun goes “bang!”

2. Christians’ throats slit in pagan slaughterhouseAfter exposing videos of “ritual human sacrifices” of Christians by Muslims, a former Palestinian Liberation Organization member-turned-Christian has discovered a new set of shocking videos that show human slaughterhouses in which non-Muslims are executed.

3. Bananageddon: Millions face hunger as deadly fungus Panama disease decimates global banana crop : “Scientists have warned that the world’s banana crop, worth £26 billion and a crucial part of the diet of more than 400 million people, is facing “disaster” from virulent diseases immune to pesticides or other forms of control.”

4. How Long Can America Continue To Burn Up Wealth? : How long can America continue to burn up wealth? How long can this nation continue to consume far more wealth than it produces? The trade deficit is one of the biggest reasons for the steady decline of the U.S. economy, but many Americans don’t even understand what it is. Basically, we are buying far more stuff from the rest of the world than they are buying from us.

5. REPUBLICANS EXPAND OBAMACARE? : At the prodding of business organizations, House Republicans quietly secured a recent change in President Barack Obama’s health law to expand coverage choices, a striking, one-of-a-kind departure from dozens of high-decibel attempts to repeal or dismember it.

6. Proliferation of armed units in fed agencies : That’s right, NOAA — the folks who forecast the weather, monitor the atmosphere and keep tabs on the oceans and waterways — has its own law enforcement division. It has a budget of $65 million and consists of 191 employees, including 96 special agents and 28 enforcement officers who carry weapons.

7. This Is What Employment In America Really Looks Like : “And the truth is that more good jobs are being lost every single day in America. For example, as you will read about below, Warren Buffett is shutting down a Fruit of the Loom factory in Kentucky and moving it to Honduras just so that he can make a little bit more money. We see this kind of betrayal over and over again, and it is absolutely ripping the middle class of America to shreds.”

  1. #7. I’m beginning to think that the big corporations/rich are moving there factories not just for profit but as a method to take less of an impact once the dollar collapses or the middle class no longer exists. They would be able to sell what the US could still buy and open more markets over seas to aid the blow to their bottom lines.

    Bob. WHat makes you think that people overseas will be able to buy there stuff? When the dollar crashes so will many other currencies.

    • Sorry for the delayed response my phone did not want to behave. When the dollar crashes it will hit first and second world nations the hardest, some are preparing for it such as the Chinese and the Russians. However while third world nations will take an impact, they are not as intertwined with the world economy due to the lack of goods they put in the market. The factories moving to these countries will give them a product to sell to the world and increase their GDP but not enough to make a real dent on their currency to dollar ratio.

  3. Christians world wide are under attack. In some European countries the young Muslim men form “Rape Squads” and go out looking for women to prey upon.
    In other countries the Muslims have brought back the us of The Cross as the means of torture/death.

    This is why I side with those who doubt a pre-Tribulation rapture. Ask yourself this, “Why would The Father put some Believers through such torture, but give others a pass?”.

    Pray for your fellow Christians, as it might be you/yours soon. Defend the Defenseless, heal the Sick, feed the Hungry, shelter the Homeless. Make your whole life a prayer.

    • in denmark most rapery is turks against danish women. the europeans and north americans don’t seem able to see what is right in front of their eyes. moslems have always been fans of rape and not just of women and children.
      there are thousands of decent moslems but the evil ones are so active.

    I find an evil world when people hate and kill those who believe in loving thy neighbor, forgiveness, faith, hope, and Jesus who taught these things.

    Yellow bananas are infertile clones for thousands of years, I read back in the 70′s somewhere, and if a disease hits them hard, they will go extinct. All have the same genes and catch the same diseases.

    I don’t see moving factories to foreign countries as a betrayal to the USA. The betrayal is those who support socialism that forces businesses to move because of the highest taxes in the world, and unions out of control, reducing profits. However Buffett supported this socialism and Obama’s tax plans, and he should get his just rewards for what he supported.

    #2 – I am in shock. But not surprised.

    #3 – Hmmm, I wonder if I can grow bananas indoors???

    #6 – Better watch out complaining about the weather; NOAA will come after you! Seriously – NOAA and Department of Education having their own police force??? Utter waste of tax payer dollars! What, the Dept of Ed going to go after home schoolers next????

    • of course homeschoolers are in their sites and always have been. i don’t know what is holding them back but a legislator here in ohio introduced a bill to force homeschool parents to be psychiatrized, inspected by child protective services, and other evil requirements.
      if so, then all teachers should be forced to undergo the same inspections. and that would go over with the NEA like a led balloon.
      she had to withdraw the bill because of the outcry but you can bet your sweet bippy that it will return periodically until the Evil One gets his evil way.
      we homeschooled ours all the way through sub rosa and she made all A’s in college majoring in chemistry, whereas neither of us could ever pass chem. so if you want to homeschool go ahead and do it. you don’t have to be a genius.

        I did home school my youngest. He graduated from Michigan Tech. We also were in the Home School Legal Defense Fund and I recommend that to all home schoolers.

    #6- here’s a prime example of fed agencies you’d not think of being armed.

    This story is unrelated to the above.

    Problem is that it describes so many of the politicians in DC.

    1. My kids never had time to do stuff like that. Of course, they didn’t spend every free moment playing video games. All of these shooters, especially children, have showed their intent long before the last straw. The sane people just have trouble believing that others can do these things.
    2. I venture a guess that throughout history there has been horrible acts by by Muslims, Christians, and others. But it is troubling that a sect of a religion today believes genocide is a good thing.
    3. Sad thing. Hope it doesn’t effect other fruit or produce.
    4. There is a finite limit. And we are almost there.
    5. I heard they were trying to do something. The GOP can’t overturn it or reverse it. And I doubt they could make it worse.
    6. Last year it was the IRS buying up ammo and now NOAA has its own police force. Why am I Not Surprised!
    7. Rats are abandoning the sinking ship. Even the most patriotic business people see the writing on the wall.

    rider of rohan, you out there?

  10. GoneWithTheWind says:

    #7 Fruit of the Loom is a publicly held company, Warren Buffett doesn’t “own” it. In the link to the story they hinted around at the city taxes and of course the state taxes and the U.S has the highest tax rate of any country. Then it talked a little about the years of expensive litigation with the state and lastly there was no mention of either unions or cost to employ someone in the U.S. with all the mandated costs and benefits including Obamacare. We are cutting our own throat in this country. We are driving employers out with high taxes, excessive regulation, union demands and government mandates. It would be naive to blame the companies for moving offshore.

    Hondorus has no epa, osha,labor board,irs,probably no overtime, That is why they leave the U. S.They probably get tax breaks also.

  12. RB in Alabama says:

    #2 Not suprised at all, as Islam has always been a “convert or die” religion. I am offended though by the use of “pagan” in the title. While technically (using definition #4 below), it could be used, it’s an affront to all those who follow a typical modern pagan lifestyle. You don’t see modern Wiccans or Asatru out doing this, now do you?

    pa·gan [pey-guhn]
    noun
    1.
    one of a people or community observing a polytheistic religion, as the ancient Romans and Greeks. Synonyms: polytheist.
    2.
    a person who is not a Christian, Jew, or Muslim. Synonyms: heathen, gentile; idolator; nonbeliever.
    3.
    an irreligious or hedonistic person.
    4.
    a person deemed savage or uncivilized and morally deficient.

    #7. I read somewhere the US is the largest consumer of goods world wide. If this is true (I really don’t know if it is), it stands to reason if Americans don’t have jobs, and live day-to-day on govt handouts (EBT, WIC, SSI), who is going to buy all these goods made overseas? I have switched over to buying Made in the USA products as much as possible; I pay a little more for mom and pop company products, but it is worth it to me. Sometimes I can’t find products Made in USA, so I buy Canadian, Mexican or Japanese products. Where they get us is in the guts of products, the USA manufacturers buy parts from China/Russia/India but they assemble it in the USA.

  14. Chuck Findlay says:

    It use to be that you could buy US made things (better made) and also lower cost (lower quality) Japan made things.

    But today almost all of it is the low quality items that are China made. The better quality items have all but gone.
