The only good Adele song I have heard is Make You Feel My Love – of course it is a cover of an old Bob Dylan song. Adele is in that group of divas i.e. Taylor Swift, Katy Perry along with One Direction who have to go to these Swedish songwriters – Max Martin the most prominent and in his late 40s – to get hooks. All of the last Taylor Swift and Katy Perry hits were written by Martin and his co-writing group. For example, Taylor Swift spent a year there in Sweden whining about her boyfriends and Max would go OK let’s use that material for a song – here is the melody so Taylor again how did that guy treat you bad ? Result: the obnoxious Shake It Off. Roar by Katy Perry was another one of those works of genius.

What unites Americans. Not Christianity. Christianity brought its divisions to America. Religious freedom and liberty unites Americans. That is a principle that the colonists slowly but surely saw in practice by Native Americans living by the shores of the Atlantic. Roger Williams was a champion of this principle after studying the lives and values of Native Americans on the eastern coast. It is American principles not Christian principles that are the greatest threat to Islam. Islam prides itself on saying Muhammad is the last prophet of God who came after Jesus. The politics of Islam and Shariah are God’s last great message to humanity. But no, the Creator, the Father of Jesus had other plans. Christians after a thousand plus years living under and accepting kingship and Popes found in America a new way of thinking embodied in the clothing of Mohawks that the Boston and later New York Tea Party participants dressed in. Christianity provides division. Many will not support Presidential candidates because they are Mormon or 7th Day Adventist. Groups of Christians do not recognize other groups of Christians as legitimate. Only the values of America as found in the U.S. Constitution can unite Americans against the evil of ISIS and Islam.
Geneva bible , Pocahontas, and what the tower of babble represents as to glue of a nation .. when you understand these you will understand where you are completely wrong everywhere.
the values FOUND in the constitution are christian .. look up how we structured our government , and you can see where they got it all from.. Moses.. read more about him....
Let it go. You don't know of the freedom of independent churches trying to the perfection of his Gospel. Just like free enterprises to develop their best product, here in the US we will perfect the true Christians. Then and not until Jesus sends a great revival will he come for his perfect bride.
Worship of ones’ religion or personal Temples violates the 1st Commandment. This once caused a tradition of Orthodox Church Christian terror but is now causing Middle East wars of terror including Women and Children Suffrage, Paralyses of the Soul Syndrome, Love Deficit Disease and Truth Scarcity Disorder. Thank God He does not dwell in Temples made with hands!
Sadly, NILAP, you have provided nothing more than another opinion. There is a saying, “Of the making of many opinions there is no end, and much study is a weariness to the flesh.” In the same volume exists, “The spirit of a man is the candle of the Lord, searching the innermost parts of the belly.”
I am not expecting you to understand these two, though the understanding is easily discovered.
You are just unable to discern between the “fowls of the air,” lodging in the result of the mustard seeds growth, and that which either may be. One thing is assured, the mustard seed portrays the Kingdom of the Heavens. The fowls may be something of another nature.
The only thing that Roger Williams may have discerned is that men everywhere acknowledge the Great Spirit, neither which is commendable either in the case of Islam or the Mohawks.
It does require they know the Living God, which for the Mohawks was perhaps more easily attained.
Your remarks why they Boston Tea Party participants wore indian wear is without thought and humerous.
The general principals of Christianity thoughout much of our literature speaks to our success as a nation, not the division you imply.
" An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him."

The oldest continuous government and sovereign nation in North America is the Haudenosaunee or Iroquois Confederacy founded by the messenger from the Creator The Peacemaker to this land prior to European contact. It was the will of the Creator that Christian Europeans would encounter the principles of the League Confederacy to provide inspiration to the founding of the most powerful government on earth despite its faults. The kingship and crown of thorns found throughout Christendom history had been replaced with the the values of Heaven and the Creator, not our King but our Grandfather. By their fruits you shall know them. The Peacemaker came for all humanity and thank God that America is here with values that come from this land, not Europe or the Middle East, to face the threat of the failed religion of Islam and big government socialism.

Many Native American/First Nations were the antithesis of big government. The Haudenosaunee or Iroquois Confederacy was a government by consensus with separation of powers. Women via the clan mothers introduced all issues before the council of sachems or chiefs. Women elected the chiefs and could impeach them. For example, all declarations of war were introduced by the clan mothers and the chiefs made sure during the whole process to stay in continual conference with the clan mothers. This confounded the first Europeans who made contact since they all were looking for the equivalent of a king and could not understand how women had such power amongst the Iroquois nations. All membership in clans came through the mothers as well as any property. This is why many in the women’s suffragette movement looked to the women of the Haudenosaunee for inspiration. Again, the various clans made sure everyone was pulling their oar so to speak and big government with a guy like Barry Obama leading was a European concept.

Watching some of the AMA and making a point of listening to the various records released and touted by the music media such as recently the Adele record, it is clear that the art of great songwriting has gone into a kind of hibernation. Now every generation does not get a George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Paul Simon and Brian Wilson to name some of the truly great songwriters. As a result the mediocre has to be touted to make sales. Singers like Adele, Taylor Swift and Katie Perry cannot rely on their own songwriting to make a successful career. Hence the emergence of committee songwriting teams and the famous Swedish guys. Looks like Adele had to do the same as Taylor and Katy – find guys/gals who can write the musical hooks to ensure a successful record. Imagine John Lennon or Keith Richards scouring the world and ending up in Sweden looking for a song. Once we had artists willing to stand on the work they did. The greats all wrote bad and mediocre songs and they stood by them as the artists they were. Right now the music industry has a big business mentality, too big to fail and the singers and divas are all hooked into it. Still great songs, songwriters will return – just as the Beatles swept away Pat Boone and company.

Adele – more meandering diva melodies. The art of creating beautiful straight to the heart melodies has been lost. From Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers through John Lennon, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson – that art has been lost or gone into hibernation – starting around the emergence of U2 and through the adulation of voice gymnastics where singers like Katie Perry, Taylor Swift and I see now Adele scurry around the world searching out songs, especially the Swedish guys, looking for a semblence of a hook so that their careers can hang on through the next album. No more great singers and groups like the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan who stand and fall by the music THEY write without the need to gloom onto songwriting committees to save their careers. That American Music Awards tonight – like watching Pat Boone and the gang in the early Sixties – ready one day to be swept away with great music again.
NILAP--Excellent post and it could not be more true. Voice gymnastics, I have never heard that before, it is the perfect phrase though.

How do you destroy the U.S. Constitution created by white Christian men. You make sure the voting population is a majority of non-Christian, non-white men and women. No need for guns. In fact, guns are the enemy of those that wish to destroy/transform the U.S. Constitution. Obama is a Constitutional lawyer – his specialty – finding ways to undermine the U.S. Constitution. With the education of Americans in the hands of those with progressive leanings, all children and youth need to know how to advocate for left wing causes in order to get that good grade. Immigration is the greatest tool and weapon in the hands of the Obama administration and the Left. There lies the future of America with those who will vote Democrat and one day make America a single party nation where George Washington will be kicked out of the White House like Woodrow Wilson will be kicked out of Princeton University as students there now advocate. Mt. Rushmore will be turned to a pile of rubble.

Back in 1973 I accepted that Muhammad was a prophet of God. Now I never became a Muslim. It was more in the spirit of accepting the various prophets of God throughout the world and history. I purchased some 6 or 7 English translations of the Quran – some in the traditional order and one in the time order of the actual revelations to Muhammad. I also purchased some 15-16 volumes of Hadith published in Pakitstan as well as a couple versions of the Nahjul-Balagha which were the complete writings of the Imam Ali, the husband of Muhammad’s daughter Fatima and who was like a son to Muhammad. Of course I interpreted jihad as being spiritual not literal – and when you are a young liberal/progressive you tend to see and interpret what conforms to your liberal beliefs and view of the world. I would exclaim like many that see how advanced Islam in the sciences was compared to Europe following the life of Muhammad. It was years later that I realized via research that Islam is actually a failed religion and Muhammad a failed prophet. He started out fine preaching peace. His uncle who Muhammad was very close to was in fact a Christian and his only wife Khadijah came from a matrilineal tribe where women held power. After Khadijah’s death, Muhammad changed. Politics, polygamy and warfare turned him away from the Creator and no longer did his revelations come from God but were of his own making. Muhammad succeeded and yet failed.

Before the Founding of the Iroquois Confederacy, the eventual 5 nations that joined it were constantly at war with each other and practiced cannibalism. The Peacemaker stopped this practice and on the head of the Onondaga Tadadaho chief deer antlers were to be worn as a symbol that man’s sustenance must come only from animals like deer meat and not human flesh. This was a directive from the Creator. So hunting for food is a spiritual practice and thanks must always be given to the deer that sacrifices its life.

Earth has all the time in the world. If humanity destroys itself, that is the end for humanity. The Earth will patiently re-green and bring forth another form of humanity that gives thanks to the Creator. In this lottery no religion has the winning ticket

The inevitable course of human history where all of humanity would eventually be a able to meet each other instantaneously included the encounters of Europeans and the Native American. Europeans were blessed to encounter via the Haudenosaunee or Iroquois Confederacy the practice of true religious liberty, of consensus we the people government without kings, where all colors were welcome to be adopted into the League, where women were the power behind the male Confederacy chiefs, who could impeach any chief, who were the first to bring up all matters before the chiefs including going to war and who all inheritance was passed down. Of course the Iroquois were not perfect and actually adopted some measures in their Constitution that were contrary to The Peacemaker who founded the Confederacy. The American colonists were not privy to the specifics of the Confederacy laws and even that they came from a Messenger of the Creator. Still the general concepts and principles that the Peacemaker brought – many were adopted by the colonists. The Europeans were wise unlike the Iroquois in that new members/states were given equal status with the original 13 states. Unfortunately for history, other Native American tribes did not want to join the 5 nation Confederacy since power was kept in the control of the original 5 nations – Mohawk, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, Oneida. History in America would have been different with a 100 nation Confederacy. Still the Peacemaker foresaw this in his great prophecy of America/Turtle Island and all the nations of the world.

Event though not Native American like her husband Todd, Sarah has that kind of strength and independence that made the Native American woman at one time a symbol of an emerging America – often a point of ridicule by Europeans in cartoons. And yes that symbol had her breasts bared proudly in so many depictions. I also read recently that they changed the statue on top of the Capitol when it was first built to include feathers in the hair of the woman atop the Capitol. Sarah to me represents an America where women have leadership and courage but still stand beside their men unlike the Feminazis of the left. That is why Nilap is Palin backwards and with the Rules for Radicals book as my Avatar which represents America out of kilter due to the Left.
