Be in no doubt that we must fight for our religious liberty, enshrined in the Bill of Rights. You might recall Senator Feinstein (D) slamming a (Catholic) judicial nominee, saying "the dogma lives loudly in you". Quite recently, Senator Harris (D) slammed a judicial nominee for being a member of the Knights of Columbus.

The Democrat party is working hard to sideline Christianity. Wasn't it 6 years ago that the DNC clearly voted to remove God and support of Israel from their election platform? (Their scared convention chairman over-ruled the voice vote.)

I personally know a MT Supreme Court justice. I was asking him the other day why there were rarely any conservative lawyers/judges running for election. He said that most of "us" detest campaigns and having to raise money. But he acknowledged that there needed to be some kind of mentoring system to put candidates forward, before the liberals got even more control of the courts.

It has become something akin to a suicide mission to run as a conservative these days. If they can't find anything on you, they'll make something up. In my opinion there are few people who have lived the life of a saint. They may be on the right track now, they may have straightened up with maturity and a knowledge of the truth of the Word, but most people have something if you dig deep enough. I think that people are scared of the skeletons deep in the closet. Forgiveness from God may have been petitioned and received, but the democrat party doesn't care about that. They will crucify any former indiscretions while their party does those same things or worse without a care...

Just read an article about New Jersey's Supreme Court. They have put multiple restrictions on weapons, using the excuse that the 2nd amendment is a 2nd tier law. Yes, you read that right. By their reasoning, freedom of speech, press, and religion can likewise be ignored by liberal justices. Dangerous precedent. Surely someone in NJ has filed a lawsuit.

I have an uncle who's a few years older than I living in Minnesota-stan. He's a retired doctor/Nat'l Guard Colonel/Democrat who has been on a 1-year
Facebook rant against Trump. My wife has shown me his posts and pictures of him joining demonstrations. I also know that he's a very devout Catholic. I don't do social media, but if I did...

"Uncle Mike, have you ever demonstrated against Democrat presidents for their support of homosexuality and abortion?"

The wife and I were on a long drive today, discussing the culture. It flashed through my brain that we were members of "the last law-and-order generation." Now, that's a bit of a stretch as I'm sure (I hope) that even Gen Z is at least 51% in favor of law and order. But I'm definitely sure that as each generation rises, they are less and less likely to follow the law, thanks to a culture that has twisted their values.

Claymore, if you wrote a book titled The Last Law-and-Order Generation, what would be some chapter titles?

I think that I would have to write the chapters, before I could come up with the titles. I could give you some of the subject areas:

The U.S. Constitution and Code specifically stating that Officers of the Court (Attorneys) shall not knowingly present false information (make me laugh).

The same persons who enjoy the greatest benefits of the freedoms that are guaranteed by the blood of our Police and Military having the greatest distain for both.

A significant percentage of "minority" groups believing that the people who pay for their security in work and dollars are their enemy.

The Clintons, having pushed the Domestic Violence laws upon states (by threating to withhold Federal Funds), that takes away any firearms ownership rights from anyone convicted of a misdemeanor, when THEY are known to have had knock-down drag-out fights that would have mandated arrests, if they had been "regular" citizens.

Need I go on???

How true. And in place of domestic violence, we could substitute recent national security violations and destruction of evidence under a court order to preserve. Reminds me of Clinton advisor Sandy Berger stealing (9/11?) documents and putting them in his socks. Nothing ever happens to the rich and powerful. Is it just a wink and nod/agreement between the left and right establishment bigwigs? Or do they have the goods on each other to the point where it's all kabuki theater and the establishment just moves on to the next forgotten scandal?

I generally say that, for my own Salvation's sake, I hope that God tilts toward leniency in the Final Judgement.

But in the case of the Klintons and their ilk,...…………. I do not share quite the same sentiment.

At school today, there was discussion on loosening up the parameters of what qualifies for a student's required volunteer service hours. One of the submitted exception requests concerned hours spent helping a teacher work on her daughter's wedding. And then two words stuck in my brain.

"I'm an inbred Christian. I live with Christians, I work with Christians, I play cards with Christians. My wife and I were talking about joining a bowling league or something, just so we could be around non-Christians and have the opportunity to share Christ. That's the only way we can change the culture."

So the exceptions were denied and the conversation moved to our annual "community service work day", where we bus students around, mostly to churches that take advantage of the free labor. Change. Now we're looking at doing a couple of big community projects, kind of like Eagle Scouts do.

No more inbreeding. Get out there and increase the gene pool.

This is spot on. There is a fight in my mind between fellowshipping with Christians and Witnessing to the Lost at the cost of getting soiled by the world. Our non official RR trips invite Friends and family of Rangers. Many times those folks are pretty rough that show up. Yet your thinking kicks in to my mind and I think...ya I know they have some issues (None a threat to the boys or the group) yet they sneak off to smoke. Probably will say a cuss word or two if they are not really careful and most likely think that Christians are just weak people.....GRIN! Then they go with us and some of those walls that are against Christ and his Church start crumbling down. They think....these folk are real. Thinking he is happy and he is welcoming me as I am. They are not what I thought they were. Yet that smile on their face is something I want in my life. I have seen this work over and over. Not preaching at them...yet living the life and them seeing it. We have a great time on these trips. All wholesome and good and yet it's flexible enough to allow folk that are not Christians to have a look and see real folk living the adventure.

Thanks for the reminder! It's easy to get caught up in good works and miss the Adventure God has called us to do.

Good idea. Often, we are witnessing to those who need it least.

I had an opportunity, two days ago. I had just left church, and was picking up milk & bread at the store. A couple of young men, in their 20's, had just preceded me in the checkout line.

I was wearing a jacket & tie, and the cashier mentioned that I looked nice and must have just come out of church. Before I could answer, I looked down and saw a dollar bill laying on the floor.

I picked up the bill, excused myself, chased the young men into the parking lot, and told him that he must have dropped this. As he pulled his (loose) bills from his front pocket, it was obvious as to how that had happened.

When I went back into the store, the cashier said, "You know, most people wouldn't do what you just did."

I smiled and said, "I ain't going to hell for a dollar."

Actually, for a dollar, it was a pretty cheap opportunity to witness.

My school's superintendent is already looking forward to changing professions in a few years. (Even a Christian) school is hard work, and very draining. He's currently working on a master's in Christian counseling, and is a senior enlisted National Army Air Guardsman. He sees himself as being a motivational speaker or counselor in the near future.

I told him that there's a lot of guys out there doing that, so he needs to carve out a niche that sets him apart from the rest. I suggested that he market himself as someone who can toughen up young people to be able to handle life. He could call it "Snowflakes to Ice Cubes".

You may have seen a story a couple of days ago about a church in Weed, CA. The pastor had put a few lines on their sign that included "Bruce Jenner is still a man...the culture changes...God's Word doesn't." The church was protested against by the local LGBTQetc crowd. Turns out a church elder put pressure on the pastor, who then resigned rather than cause a split.

Even within the church, there are those who bow and bend over to secular groupthink.

Every time we opt out for the world view our numbers decrease. We get closer to what God's Word the Bible says about the Road leading off into destruction is wide and many find it. The other road leading to eternal life with Jesus is a whole lot less.

Our Churches sadly many fall into that Wide Road. Where is God's Grace in all of this? He will look on the heart as ONLY HE can do. Rest of it good works, bad works, gray works, running after the world and it's ways...will always net us filthy rags. Even on my best day serving God I am only assured salvation on accepting Jesus as my Lord and Savior and remaining in Him. Daily I have to die to my self (flesh) and look to the Cross (what was done there) that paid my debt. If I remain there in my heart and mind thankfully God only see's Jesus Sacrifice when He looks at me. Clean is where I want to remain. That Pastor while he may face trials and tribulations in his decisions his fruit declared him looking to Jesus. There and only there is what will keep us!

The original meaning of "bully", taken from a Dutch word, is sweetheart. Surprising, no? And then Teddy Roosevelt popularized a new way to use the word. It wasn't until years later that bully got a negative tag.

No matter how many resources the public schools throw at it, the bullying problem gets worse and worse. After focusing on it for decades, they have yet to turn the corner, and they never will. The effects of the culture on kids keeps moving at light speed.

Christian schools aren't immune from its effects. It's nowhere near as bad, but considering we shouldn't have it at all, it hurts just as much. Trying to end it is like whack-a-mole. We can't turn the corner, either. Next week, we will try to come up with a grand strategy. Help us, Lord.

"Just say no" has become "Say it ain't so, Joe!"

Joe Montana is the latest big-name to jump into the marijuana business. Nobody wants to be left off the gravy train. The constant assault of $ has torn down the walls that used to stem the tide. I have no doubt that my state will legalize it within 5 years.

Many of the "Big Names" that are supporting legalizing Marijuana haven't seen the harm that drugs or alcohol can do to families. I will admit that THC has shown SOME uses in treating chemotherapy patients, and some folks with other treatable medical conditions - but it cannot be Katie-bar-the-door & make it legal to use dope for any perceived reason.

I think that we can all remember the "big stoners" from high school. Chances are that virtually none of those folks ever became highly successful.

Something that many people do not know is that the chemical Tetrahydrocannabinols is OIL BASED (like old paints or oil salad dressing). Water does not flush it out of the body. Alcohol and nicotine are water based, and the majority will be flushed out in 24 to 72 hours by just running a normal amount of water through the body.

What does this mean? It means that the THC attaches to the fat cells in the body. The brain has a large percentage of fat cells in its composition. Essentially, the only way for the THC to be evacuated from the body is when those cells leave the body.


Think about it. Often, you couldn't tell if the "big stoners" had just smoked a bowl, or if they did it yesterday. The reason is that their body was still retaining a relatively high amount of THC, which didn't/couldn't wash out, and was still affecting brain function.


Hence, the reason for the "Wow, Man" personality.

You probably heard about the back-slapping New York politicians (D) who just passed the country's most pro-abortion law. Among other provisions, just about anyone can perform an abortion. Their governor (D) partied through the night, ordering pink spotlights onto a variety of Big Apple attractions.

And then Virginia's (pediatrics neuro-physician) governor (D) applauded their legislative victory. In an interview, he championed what is clearly infanticide, saying that babies that survive abortions can still be killed. Nary a peep from anyone in his party.

What comes around, goes around. It was revealed today that Virginia's governor posed in blackface 35 years ago. "Yes, that was me," he said, but he refuses to resign, as scores of fellow Democrats are demanding that he do. Killing just-born babies? No problem. A stupid costume from the mid-80's? Gotta go.

If death occurs when the heart stops, then life at least begins when the heart beats. A baby's heartbeat is detectable between 6-8 weeks after the egg is fertilized.

Did I not predict that we would see a decriminalization of pedophilia within our lifetime? News out of California: their state legislature is considering a law that, if passed, is a giant leap towards that very thing. As long as the sexually assaulted victim's age is within 10 years of the criminal's age, the perp won't have to register as a sex offender. Because it unfairly targets the LGBTQ community.

Dumbing down America. Out of North Carolina comes word that the state is seriously considering changes that are designed to keep schools from officially failing and closing. If adopted, an "A" will be 85% and above...and an "F" will be 39% and below.

So a student could probably guess his way through every quiz and test for 12 years and actually graduate. (Sigh)
