All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Blog NOT for Sale

I have no idea who the company is that is currently trying to sell my blog address or why/how they keep doing a pop up/redirect when you access the page.  If anyone has any idea how to stop the redirect I'd like to know.


Oh Shut Up Already.

Most of you who stop by to read this little blog of mine know that I'm a Christian. I don't apologize for that nor do I see a reason to. Faith is a personal decision and I have made my decision. As a rule I don't get to concerned or worked up about other peoples faith. That goes for Christians that accept different doctrines than me and for most other world religions. The reason for that is that I don't see myself as able to correct the whole world about everything. I don't accept everyone or anyone else's opinion as equally valid, because that would be stupid. God by the very definition of the concept is the guy who gets to make the rules/doctrines that He deems proper. He is of course equally able to defend those positions and/or punish people for choosing the wrong path. Therefor I try to leave it all to Him and hope that He is as gracious to me for my short comings as I hope He will be to others. That said some people drive me nuts.
The severe drought throughout most of Texas is taking its toll on ranchers, travelers, athletes, businesses and natural resources, and that last category includes the OC Fisher Reservoir, which has dead fish floating on its little remaining water.

But what has caught the attention of many is the fact that the water has turned blood-red.

The development, coming as it has amidst the various turmoil around the globe and just as a comet has been reported to be racing toward Earth at the peak of God's holy days, has sparked talk of biblical prophecy even from distributors of scientific information such as Live Science.

A couple of basic's here:
#1. The water looks red, its not actually blood.  If it was suddenly blood, you'd have a very interesting story.  As it is, it looks redish, this isn't news as redish water is caused by any number of natural phenomenon, that we have explanation for.  So unless the water becomes A pos, its not news worthy.

#2. Not everything is a sign of the end of time.  Some things are just the way the world works., like lakes drying up during a draught.

#3. Your stupidity makes other Christians look like dorks.  The world assumes we all are unthinking twits, because what they see is folks like you in the news.  Take a hint, your potato isn't a reincarnation of the Virgin Mary, even if it kinda looks like a picture someone painted of her.  Jesus isn't coming back on Tuesday because you cracked some secret (nonexistent) code in the Bible.  Jesus specifically told us that "no one knows the hour, not even the Son but only the Father in heaven".  If God didn't inform Jesus, why would you think that He invented a cleaver way to let you know?


The Spending is Nuts

I don't know how many of you saw this. I liked it. I guess for me the whole state of the economy is a touchy subject. On one hand I know how bad it is, on the other I see myself as basically powerless to fix it. The winner of the $100,000 Power Line Prize has been announced and it's a video called "The Spending Is Nuts." I think they did a great job putting the subject of Federal spending into understandable and realistic terms.

Well Why Not?

Russia’s Post Office has issued a collection of stamps and envelopes to mark the 50th jubilee of the US President Barack Obama.
After all B.O. has done more to turn the U.S. of A. into a Marxist utopia than anyone else in history.
