    ‎1 Samuel 8 – they wanted a king over them, not the King of Kings:
    …but they have rejected me [God] from being king over them…but you shall solemnly warn them and show them the ways of the king who shall reign over them…he will take your sons and appoint them to his chariots and to be his horsemen and to run before his chariots. And he will appoint for himself commanders…and some to plow his ground and to reap his harvest, and to make his implements of war and the equipment of his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive orchards and give them to his servants. He will take the tenth of your grain and of your vineyards and give it to his officers and to his servants. He will take your male servants and female servants and the best of your young men and your donkeys, and put them to work. He will take the tenth of your flocks, and you shall be his slaves. And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the Lord will not answer you in that day.

    I’m pretty sure that means he was an indecisive do-nothing!

    Obama repaid the compliment. “I’m walking through doors other folks broke down,” he told the Record. “A whole bunch of people worked real hard to allow me to be in this position—folks at BLSA, Prof. Bell, Edley, Ogletree and a lot of others. They are the groundbreakers.

    Yep…”You didn’t build that!”

    I blame management for poorly managing the union and living in fear of the constant complaints over work rule violations for picking up a garbage can or moving a computer because that’s a union job. For the rest of the woes of this airline, I blame greed and selfishness and ignorance.

    @DMG8487 “After 9/11 labor gave up big money and benefits to keep their jobs”

    Let’s tell the whole truth about that concession in 2002. As an AA employee, I know what happened in those years. Not one union worker has ever mentioned that in 2000 they got huge increases – most mechanics received a 20% increase because AA was matching Delta’s incredible increases to their employees. Less than a year later, after 911 and the blows the industry took, there were concessions not just from union workers, but from us all! The union always trots out the 17% cut they took while management took a 7% cut. Well, management didn’t get any increases for years before or after 911 (and management isn’t all top executives – it’s 98% mid-level modestly paid accountants, engineers, secretaries, and administrative employees). Management went back to the level of 1997 pay, while union workers ended up 3% above their pay just a year previous to 911. Not one union member ever says that, but we always hear, “Woe is me…they stole our pay!” Middle management is still at ‘97 pay, and unions have gotten increases regularly since. Yes, the system is broken, when a union stock clerk makes more than highly skilled, experienced, loyal accountants, engineers, and administrators who are also necessary for the airline to run. When union productivity has been about 48% for years, how can an airline run. AA used to be #1. I blame upper management for not managing well, but union greed

    Just wish they would proofread before publishing these stories!

    …and every silly black parent who forever more names her kid “Trayvon” (can’t say “his kid” because Daddy is probably either long gone or in jail) will pay royalties to the Martins because there is an implied copyright when they wrote his name on his birth certificate…this is a tragedy and a travesty all around!!!

    I was reading in 2 Kings (that’s in the Bible–the only book of true ethics) about a time of severe famine when two mothers agreed to boil their young children and eat them. I wrote in the margin that desperation and a depraved mind could bring a person to this? God promises that He will never see the righteous (those who have trusted in Christ’s righteousness to cover their sinfulness) begging bread. So, the only desperation in the case of abortion is that of having to take responsibility for one’s own acts. A depraved mind will do anything–even boiling and eating its own to feed its own felt need. False gods (those made up in the minds of depraved men) are those that require(d) the sacrifice of children. God will bring His judgment on this people.

    The light of the righteous shines brightly,…Proverbs 13:9, not loudly, Shine on, brother!

    Oh, I can only hope people have brains in their heads and stoke Santorum’s fire!

    @LORIANN12 Yep. The New Square Foot Gardening gives anyone the perfect garden in as little as a few square feet, even on a balcony or steps or a ledge. I have a huge garden, but the amount you can grow, even on a balcony, is amazing. Order non-hybrid seed (don’t get it at WalMart), and harvest your own seed. Don’t believe the lie that you need new seed every year (think Monsanto – a friend planted a pumpkin seed from a store-bought watermelon and got a bean plant. Go figure what genetic engineering can do!). Make your own seed bank. The NSFG book tells you how long seed can be stored, how much to plant in one square foot, the perfect soil mix, and you can do it in 6″ of soil. Seriously, we had the best garden in 30 years this past season – even with temps over 100° most of the summer. Freeze it, can it, dehydrate it. Dry celery, onions, herbs, and peppers and grind them to preserve powders for seasoning soups. Dehydrate grapes and other fruits before they are wasted. Freeze ripening bananas for bread. Use every bit of what you have, and quit wasting it. Spend one grocery trip budget on a dehydrator, canner, and supplies instead of pre-frozen and pre-packaged convenience foods. We’re building cold frames to sustain some plants through the winter now. It’s work, but it is so rewarding. In a society quickly losing its grip on its agrarian roots, learn quickly what you can do to feed and provide for your family. Teach your children things that endure!

    @ARMYMP Thanks for the website. I’ve been using sprouting seed for years (not a hippie either), and was having a hard time finding a supplier. Prices are reasonable.

    amen! amen!

    The cult that is football strikes again. Pray for these precious children who will live with this damage all of their lives!!!

    This was not her statement…she totally read what someone else wrote. She wasn’t even familiar with the words, laughed, and gave the beauty queen smile through it all. They should have paid a better actress who could actually read convincingly!

  • November 6, 2011 at 5:45pm

    Amen! That’s one way to stop this!

    This is what you get when Mommy and Daddy don’t require them to work to earn their college education…that’s who’s funding this bunch. Aren’t you proud parents of these useful idiots? If one or two of them would stop banging the drum long enough to just think (I know they have not been trained to really think), they would say to self, “Self, this is just really stupid and useless. I’m going to make a real difference. I’m going to go get a job and work my way up like the rest of the real people in this country, and I’m going to every town hall and write every letter and call every representative, and vote! And, I’m going to start trying to do something good for my fellow man instead of just living for me.” Oh, but that would require thinking and doing! Not going to happen – at least as long as Mommy and Daddy are paying for it! Wake up Mom and Dad!!!

    I had a neighbor tell me that she didn’t make her kids do any work, chores, or have responsibilities because they are only young once and they should enjoy it and not have to work. There would be time for work later in life. Well, that worked out well, huh??? I’m still watching those “kids” across the street…watching them closely, very closely!!! They’re in their 20s. They don’t work. They still take! And Mommy still funds them. Still to come: princesses and gamers – toddlers with tiaras – it’s funny that the pampered are the ones protesting the money bosses! The money is in their parents’ pockets! End of r

    Reminds me of when Lilleth left Frasier to go into the eco-pod with her PhD lover. Just gave me a laugh.

    Oh, and the amount of gulls should have been a dead giveaway that the whales were around herding fish to begin their bubble net feed.
