Game Rules

Rule One
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion

Rule Two
Everyone is NOT entitled to their own facts

Rule Three
Facts are facts. To be a fact, it must be true. A made up item is NOT a fact.

Rule Four
Thinking, believing or wishing does not make an item a fact. ONLY truth makes facts.

Rule Five
If it was a fact yesterday, it is a fact today. Just because you say you did not say it, does not mean you did not say it.

End of Lesson Test
Q - If you call a dog's tail a leg, how many legs does a dog have?
A - Four. Calling a tail a leg does not make it a leg.

Episcopal Church of the USA

The current Episcopal Church of the USA is likened unto a whitewashed sepulcher; claiming to be a church, yet filled with corruption. There is no pride to be taken in compromise with evil. Anyone who will not see the evil in the ECUSA is in clear danger of losing their immortal soul.

The church has lost 90 percent of its membership since the 1950s. This is a tragedy for a country who drew from its ranks many of its presidents and 40 percent of its military flag officers. No more.

The decline in membership is in line with the clear goal of those who have managed to take over the church. They would have us believe God is happy with each of us doing what we think is right. If everything is fine, who needs to go to church each Sunday to find that out?

The takeover of the ECUSA has been long in the planning. The changed "Book of Common Prayer" put in to effect in 1979 was done to allow confirmation of homosexuals. It is particularly important to note that the first queer bishop was not only openly, but an adulterer who left his wife and children for his queer lover.

Those who stay with the ECUSA must understand they are in an unholy alliance. They are not negotiating with Christians who have slightly differing views of God's intention, but devil buddies who are only interested in subverting God's will.

May you live in interesting times - One heck of a curse.

God, Honor and Country - Veteran's Day 2005

We are fortunate to have been allowed to serve our country and lucky to have survived. We know the feeling that comes with having put our lives on the line between the forces of Evil and our God, Honor and Country in a way those who only read about it will never know or perhaps even care about. We realize the debt we owe to those who now defend us, as we once defended them. We feel the debt and know we can never pay it back. But as a great American once said, "Better to die owing, that beat you out of it." The debt even we (or perhaps we in particular) owe those who now take up the sword in our places can never be paid back, but it must be recognized.

Our service forms a unique bond between services and generations. As age creeps up on the lucky, we hobble and wheeze, but never ever give up our honor. The honor of those who go forth to do battle for our homeland. From the French and Indian Wars through Desert Two and beyond. We are one. The American Warrior. No point in telling those who are not, they will never understand, it cannot be explained, now or ever.

We recognize each other with a word here or there; Valley Forge, Veracruz, Gettysburg, San Juan Hill, Verdun, Guadacanal, Saipan, Omaha, Torch, K16, Cuba, Barrel Roll, the Red, DaNang, Fulda Gap, Kuwait, Bagdad and a hundred thousand other places we have sweated, frozen or died.

We honor the bond in our salute. A salute those who only act the part can never duplicate.

God Bless you all.

Christmas, Holidays and Spending

As we come on the Holiday Spending Season, be prepared for an attack on Christmas by the ACLU, an acronym that covers an anti-American anti-God group bent on a One World One People One Government No God final solution to everything.

Christmas is under attack on the basis that its celebration or even note by anyone or anything, let alone a governmental agency is in conflict with the First Amendment to the United States Constitution; the vaunted revered and mis-construed “Establishment Clause.”

The “Establishment Clause” actually reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; …"

You will note that it says nothing about anyone except Congress and nothing other than making a law. For good reason, at the time of the ratification of the Constitution, several states had state religions and kept them. The Constitution would never have been ratified if the people thought that the “Establishment Clause” would be used to promote atheism.

About 85 percent of the American populace is Christian, yet the ACLU would have all references to Christianity banned from the public view. By recognizing the Christian celebration of the birth of Christ, Congress is not making any laws respecting the establishment of any religion. In allowing or even sponsoring a Nativity Scene government is not making any laws respecting the establishment of any religion.

You will note the same people who think that the Constitution which says:

“…the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Has no provision for armed citizens, but find the prohibition against wishing someone Merry Christmas in these words;

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; …"

You will note the ACLU never attacks Muslims and seldom Jews. Almost exclusively Christians. Not so much because of their religion, but because they are a majority whose beliefs are such that they are “meek” in their beliefs. They are willing to live and let live. Muslims are willing to kill and let die.

Enough is enough.

Let us examine who protects the country.



Go to any National Cemetery.

Read the tombstones of the heros.

Christians and Jews, with a few Buddists, Taoists and Confucians thrown in for good measure.

Atheists? There is a symbol, just haven’t seen it used.

God, Honor, Country.

Not much of a motto if you don’t believe in God, have no honor and don’t think much of the greatest country in earth.

Having said all of this, reflect on the commercial.

People do not buy people Happy Holiday gifts. Christmas, yes; Hanukkah, yes; Happy Holidays, no.

The commercial aspect of Christmas has been very profitable for the American merchandiser. There is not much commercial aspect of the Happy Holiday.

Think about it!
