    ” All you have to do is read the daily news and you’ll find plenty of signs.”

    This.

    The best antidote for this is for someone among our Conservative heroes to strategically place a nicely framed picture of the movie poster for Boris Pasternak’s “Doctor Zhivago” and have a picture taken with his nice, happy, Conservative family. And a nice photo of Alexander Solzhenitsyn on another side of the room.

    Make both perfectly visible to the camera.

    Oh, and have a good photo of the people chiseling the Berlin Wall into smithereens. And an even bigger photo of Ronald Reagan. (Make Reagan’s overpowering!)

    I watched the film a few weekends ago. It is a MUST WATCH.

    It was rather sad to see him return home after WWI, to find the house he shared with his wife and her father having been “partitioned” among a Communist”committee”, only to leave a cold side of a top floor for that family. Then, adding insult to injury, he has to hear from the same thugs that his already small apartment “could fit up to fifteen more families”, as if people were less than sardines!

    Then, after his family left with him to a house they had beyond the Ural Mountains to break from Moscow, only to find it confiscated “in the Name of the People”.

    And to top it all off, the good Doctor stops practicing medicine (Pasternak’s version of “going Galt”), only to be hounded by Bolsheviks, who make him practice medicine – at gunpoint. (A precursor of Obamacare, perhaps?)

    The film is a MUST WATCH, and the book is a MUST READ. Read it and pass it along.

    (One more thing: keep an eye on the balalaika, the Russian guitar.)

    Hey, LBGT crowd! I have to say, “Thank You All From the Bottom of My Heart!”

    Because of what you and Mozilla have done to this man, I just moved all my bookmarks to another browser and uninstalled Firefox forever (after ten years of loyal usage), until I finish building a browser of my own. Hey, I have programming background: a project like this doesn’t intimidate me.

    Also, we just had a major problem with our computer recently. We found out that a virus that makes multiple copies of itself and allows malware to enter every single partition of your hard drive was making great havoc in our laptop, to the point that I considered buying a new hard drive – or a new laptop. Now that I spoke to my hubby about what happened at Mozilla, he asked me if Firefox running as slowly as it has had for a long time was a factor.

    If other Christians/conservatives like myself with computer programming/graphics background want to join me, fell free to let me know.

    This man was from Guayanilla, Puerto Rico – in the southwestern coast, quite far from my own hometown. He looked like many men when I grew up there. (Let me remind you that we don’t have one specific look. We encompass the whole racial spectrum. The fact that he was named “Ivan” means that’s how his family named him, not because Russian. I’ve met quite a few Ivans there and even one Vladimir. We over there can choose any name in the planet, even weird ones. Nothing more. PR is not Cuba.)

    He was being treated for anxiety and depression. He did not see combat, but he had two recent and sudden deaths in his family. In addition, he was taking Ambien for insomnia.

    Google “Ambien problems” and you’ll see that this will soon be zeroed in as the cause – and be taken off the market.

    I still grieve for the ones who were killed, though. This was more tragedy than terrorism.

    I second that. My most sincere condolences.

    We need more revolts like this one!

    My little one goes to a well-respected and well-reputed preschool run by a Presbyterian church near my house. I sometimes take a Wednesday class there. (Non-members are welcome,too.) One evening, I overheard a couple of the higher-ups of the church talking about the possibility of breaking from PC-USA because of the organization’s stance on “gay marriage.” That very same night, I checked the website of the church – and found that it had a special statement from its pastors on the issue. They reaffirmed traditional marriage and sexuality, fully and unequivocally. Chapter and verse. Can’t wait for their final breakup announcement!

    I’m now downloading and updating my iPhone. Thank you!

    “How could God be so loving when he will send millions to hell?”

    Have you ever read C.S. Lewis “The Great Divorce”? A little quote to ponder: “All who are in Hell choose it. Without choice there could be no Hell.”

    You want an example of that? Google the words “Mohammed Atta.” Then come back and… talk.

    That’s the whole point. The pain NEVER GOES AWAY.

    My husband’s great aunt, whom I met when she was in her late seventies/early eighties, always had a very palpable sadness in her eyes. She loved her great-nephew like her own child, even though she never had children.

    After her passing, we both found out why: she had an abortion as a young woman, which rendered her unable to have children. She married a Lutheran minister and lived with him until his death. But she never got over the child she aborted.

    I repeat: SHE NEVER GOT OVER THE CHILD SHE ABORTED. Not one day. Not one hour. The grief was even reflected in her glass eye, which she wore in her last years. I bet you when she finally died, she was finally happy.

    Drug overdose. A few years ago, it was Heath Ledger, and in Manhattan, too. Will people ever learn?

    Poor guy. May he rest in peace.

    At the same time, a pedophile is about to receive a “Lifetime Achievement Award” from the self-same Academy of Motion Pictures…

    Lesson to Christians here: it is better to be “Alone” than with bad company. (1 Corinthians 15:33)

    Yeah, a movie about rescuing newborn babies abandoned in Seoul and the pastors carrying that ministry is “satanic”…

    And a call to help a worldwide ministry to prevent and rescue the hearts of men from pornography is “satanic”…

    Sure, doing what Jesus called us to do – share the Gospel – is “satanic”…

    Next time you receive a letter from any of those non-profits, do yourself a few favors.

    Check their address. Look at it on Google Maps. Do Street View. Take a good look at where they’re located.

    Then, go to Zillow.com or any site that points out at commercial real estate values.

    Check the value of that commercial property.

    You may be shocked.

    You will be wise to know that Alexandria, VA is the “non-profit capital of the world”. I know. I worked there. And, as you might suspect, real estate in the DC area – let alone Alexandria – isn’t cheap.

    “Non-profit”, my foot!

    I think this kid has some sort of undiagnosed mental illness. Look at his eyes.

    He needs help.

    Colleges, for the most part, have become less about education and more about “1984″-level indoctrination. Some colleges might as well be accredited by North Korea. And yet, this is where misinformed parents are dropping their kids off to before the first day of class, because the kid “has to get an education”, even if they all go into total penury for the kid’s sake. No parent should take such a huge risk.

    The best thing that could happen is a total bursting of the college bubble. It is way overdue. Too many useless degrees out there and too many administrative moochers… I mean, staff. A lot can be accomplished without all that extra cost. Online degrees and other alternatives are the way to go.

    “God is not vengeful.”

    Ahem…

    “To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.”

    Otherwise, there wouldn’t be such thing as Justice.

    Well, in the South Texas area it is warmer than most places around Christmas Eve.

    Then, on Christmas Eve 2004, something strange happened. It became colder and cloudier than ever as the day wore on. And then, something fell from the sky that no one native to that area had ever seen (if they had never left, that is): snow.

    The TX Gulf Coast, from south of Galveston and all the way down to Brownsville, a good eight inches of snow fell. Corpus Christi (!) had its first snow storm in 100 years. No one expected that. We were living in the Corpus area at that time: when I saw the sleet, I knew what was coming, and jumped for joy. The hubby was incredulous: we had seen snowstorms in NY and New England before. He thought there was nothing coming out of it. After three hours, we were taking pictures all over the neighborhood, having snow fights and building a snow man… in an area of the country where the weather is usually for wearing shorts that time of the year.

    And then came the Night of the Long Knives – and Hitler had them all exterminated at once.
