"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it."

Should environmentalists limit the public's access to its own Parks?

That's the case facing Yosemite National Park...

"Efforts to safeguard the Merced have spawned a court battle over the future of development in Yosemite National Park's most popular stretch. The case may come down to the challenge facing all of America's parks: Should they remain open to everyone, or should access be limited in the interest of protecting them?

In November, a federal judge barred crews from finishing $60 million in construction projects in Yosemite Valley, siding with a small group of environmentalists who sued the federal government, saying further commercial development would bring greater numbers of visitors, thus threatening the Merced's fragile ecosystem."

The Useful Idiots that are the Washington Democrats

"As President Bush works to find strategies for victory in Iraq and dealing with the Iranian threat, the Democratic Party seems determined to send every possible signal to our enemies that they have nothing to worry about when it comes to the projection of American power in wartime."

Check out the cover of today's "Iran-Daily" rag...the state newspaper of the Islamic Republic of Iran... REMEMBER.. this is the IRNA newspaper.. so it's not the place you want to be featured

John Kerry gives autograph to Mullah Khatami?


What's up with this photo? Khatami looks like a doe-eyed school girl having just met some sort of Boy-band character. Guess what happens in Davos, Switzerland... stays in Davos.

Chavez to deport our Ambassador?

"President Hugo Chavez is threatening to deport the U.S. ambassador if he continues "meddling in Venezuela's affairs."

Iraq beginning to step up?

Piedmont mayor to retire

"Ready to Slow Down Mayor Gaylon Watson, pictured above with his dogs Gracie and Bandit, will not seek re-election. Watson plans to devote his time to re-establishing his real estate business, fishing more, resting more, playing golf more, loving his family more, loving God more, and working less."

I give him credit. One of the major initiatives in the city was the revetment of McKenzie Creek. It included bank stabilization, creek cleanup, property buyout=park conversion, and a very nice walking trail. Good job Mayor Watson.

"I will be voting against Senator Martinez if he is nominated for any chairmanship of the RNC," Tina Benkiser, Texas Republican Party chairman, told The Washington Times yesterday."

Seems like to me, President Bush should have nominated someone who would actually be a fulltime Chair.

Iran is being invaded... by little Green Men?

Looks like someone from Mars is attempting to sabotage the nuke program over in Farsland. Mullahs, maybe it's just out of your hands now? Better develop a space program and declare jihad upon the Martian infidels!

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."

Brownback to enter the '08 Race

"He will be fully announcing on January 20 in Topeka, Kansas," Brian Hart, the senator's spokesman, said Friday. The move was expected even though Brownback set up an exploratory committee in December to gauge whether he had enough support for a full-blown campaign.
After the announcement in Kansas, Hart said Brownback will fly to Washington to participate in the anti-abortion march marking the anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling."

While Christians in Iran are arrested for practicing their faith, Christians in Saudi Arabia... well what Christians? I could go on and on and on...

our government coddles an Islamist organ CAIR by publishing their press releases verbatim... and making sure that all our flights are "hajj friendly"... interesting in that our sensitivity/tolerance is utilized to PREVENT anyone other than muslims from visiting Mecca/Medina.

We are fools sometimes (Bush administration), wonder if I could get Jewish/Christian friendly food on Saudi airlines? Think I could wear a cross in public in say Riyadh? Nahh...

God be with us.
