    Well, look at it this way. We may have random beheadings now and again, God knows who coming over our borders, mysterious respiratory diseases in nearly every state and let’s not forget good old Ebola, but the planet will be saved because California stops using plastic bags. Phew. And I was worried there for a minute.

    This is not good. Really, really not good.

    The Jews in Egypt did not go through the plagues (or plaques as you put it). Read your scripture again – the Jews were protected from the blood, gnats, locust, frogs, etc.

    You are wrong on another count. Enoch did not die – he “walked with God”. In other words, God took him way from earth. Elijah did not die either. God took him to heaven in a chariot. So they were both “taken up.” Period.

    It’s not a hill to die on for me, however God plays out the “last days” clock is just fine with me. What has never been adequately explained to me by the Rapture deniers is:
    1. The last mention of the Church in Revelation is in chapter three. From chapter three on the Church is not mentioned at all.
    2. There is no evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit in the Tribulation. Nothing. Squat. If the Church is still present on the earth during this time, this makes no sense.

    The fact of the Tribulation period is indisputable as the Book of Daniel is very clear and the math in that book is inarguable. If I, as a believer in Christ, am here for the Tribulation period, fine, at least it’s a fixed time period and the end will be in sight, but as a believer, I wouldn’t make it to the end anyway. I choose to believe in the Rapture and if I’m wrong, I’ve lost nothing. I base my beliefs on Scripture, not on John Darby.

    You are absolutely right. I admit to being a Tony Stewart fan and in past years it hasn’t always been easy. Trust me when tell you that he has certainly had a temper that it took him a long time to get under control, but he has never been arrogant. Tony has, in the past, done dumb stuff but he’s always admitted his mistakes and that’s something most Tony haters won’t acknowledge. In the past few years he has really done well with the temper, in fact better than a lot of the new drivers coming on the scene. This horrible tragedy will change him irrevocably and I’m glad to hear he’s getting counseling. He’s going to need it. I pray for peace for the Ward family.

    I agree that Tony won’t want to go through a long, drawn-out civil trial and will probably try to reach some agreement with the family. Of course, they might be entirely too bent on revenge to see any kind of reason. Based on the father’s comments, it seems that way. I would be very sorry to see this tragedy played out in a court trial because the one who will come out looking bad is Kevin Ward and that would be very sad. He needs to rest in peace.

    Sleep tight, Amerika.

    God also made hemlock.

    Sigh. Explaining how a Sprint Car works to someone who doesn’t or won’t understand it is becoming pointless. Thankfully, the DA and Grand Jury chose to make their decision on facts rather than stupidity.

    NASCAR is not the governing body of Sprint Car. Sprint CAR and Sprint CUP are not the same. This is one of the problems of people commenting on things they do not understand. The Sprint Car series will have to do their own soul-searching on this issue and do something about it.

    “You simply can’t kill someone and proceed as if you twisted an ankle.”

    Funny, Ted Kennedy did and it didn’t seem to bother anyone.

    Strangely, this turn of events had never occurred to me. It will put an interesting light on any future civil suit even though I’m absolutely sure the Ward family will file it. They seem bitter and vindictive and I feel sorry for them. It is horrific to lose a child and I hope they heal and forgive at some point. I would wish they would read the book, “Amish Grace” – a beautiful lesson in forgiveness.

    Did the nurses forget your Thorazine shot this morning?

  • August 24, 2014 at 3:31pm

    Nicely done, Stu! Too bad he’s on vacation tomorrow ’cause I’d love to hear the comments on that sweet move.

  • [3] August 13, 2014 at 3:58pm

    What is so disturbing here is the reaction to this blog post. We’ve reached a point in our culture where, “If I don’t agree with you then you deserve to be dead!”. How did we get here? How and when did things get so bad? It’s truly horrifying and will lead us to a very bad place – of that there is no doubt.

    Didn’t know I had this on my Mac so this is cool information. Yes, it’s all there.

  • August 12, 2014 at 2:23pm

    Wow, I had no idea there were so many experts on sprint car racing in the country and, I suppose, the world in general. With this level of expertise you’d think there would be dirt tracks in every city (small and great) in the US. It also makes me wonder why SPRINT CAR RACING isn’t a major sport like the NFL, NBA and MLB. You people are brilliant, absolutely brilliant and probably have law degrees besides. I bow to your superior knowledge of all things racing, the fine points of driving a winged sprint car and the fact that you can read the minds and the thoughts and intents of the heart in everyone.
    Bravo! You should all be very proud of yourselves.

    People love to judge – especially when they have no clue what they are talking about.

    Dear Mr. Colbert,
    The situation in the Middle East is a mess. People are dying every day. The nation of Israel is at war with insane wackjobs who want to kill them. Innocent men, women and children in Iraq are being tortured, beheaded and their severed heads placed on pikes. The world is not “tranquil” – it is dangerous, deadly and frightening. Making jokes about this is beyond disgusting and basically makes you an animal instead of a rational, thinking human being.
    Love, hi altitude
    P.S. BTW, you are not funny.

    Dr. Brantly did not knowingly take his family to an Ebola hot zone. He was there a year ago when there was no Ebola in Liberia. Doctors Without Borders do this sort of stuff all the time so Dr. Brantly can hardly be charged with being some sort of reckless religious nutball. He took his gift and used it to help people less fortunate and for that he is to be commended. God bless him for that.

    I am, however, feeling uneasy about bring the Ebola virus to the US and North America in general. While I pray for Dr. Brantly and the nurse to be among those who survive this terrible disease, bringing them here doesn’t seem wise at all. This decision had to be made at a very high level and because we have an administration that loves to “never let a crisis go to waste,” I fear that they wouldn’t be that distressed if Ebola became a problem here. I’d like to think that the US Government has our best interests at heart but those days are long gone.
