Real Fun Facts

So real it's impossible to make this stuff up

Roberts Confirmed!


Finally! After all the crying that the libs did, Judge John Roberts became the next Supreme Court Chief Justice. Since he is in a leadership role I think it is our duty as Christians to pray for him. Here's to praying that he fights for the constitution in its original form. None of this "living document" stupidity that the ACLU spews out. Go John Go!

The ACLU Is America's #1 Religious Censor

Crossposted at StoptheACLU.com

The ACLU, who claim to be Americas gaurdian of liberty is ironically the most active religious censor in America. For nearly two generations it has relentlessly forced countless communities into submission when it comes to public expression of faith, particularly Christianity.

California has been fighting to save their seal, its history and heritage from the clutches of the ACLU's secular cleansing with everything they've got. The people voted to keep the seal, but the ACLU is not interested in democracy. They believe they know what is best for society, and are willing to force it on people through their finely tuned skills of judicial activism.

Now they are at it again- this time in the small village of Tijeras, New Mexico (population 474). Earlier this week, our friend The Mary Hunter at TMH's Bacon Bits told us the story, and asked, where is the ACLU?

Two residents of a New Mexico town are suing to remove three crosses from the official town seal. The suit says "the crosses serve no governmental purpose other than to disenfranchise and discredit non-Christian citizens" and accuses the city of violating the plaintiff's constitutional right to religious freedom, invading their privacy, and violating the civil rights act of 1964. The mayor says he plans to fight the lawsuit since, he says, the crosses have a historical reason for being in the logo. After all, the town in question is Las Cruces, which is Spanish for "The Crosses."


The Alliance Defense Fund will be stepping up to the plate once again to defend religious liberty.

TIJERAS, N.M. - The village council of Tijeras agreed Thursday to be represented by attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund in their battle against a lawsuit threatened by the ACLU. The ACLU claims the village logo violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution because it depicts a small cross.

"We have carefully reviewed the ACLU's allegations and believe the seal is entirely constitutional under the law," said ADF Senior Counsel Gary McCaleb. "The main feature of the city seal is not the cross but the Zia, which is a Native American religious symbol. The symbols of the seal reflect the history and culture of this ancient village. Many of the same design elements, such as the Zia, are found in the state flag. Why isn't the ACLU suing against the state flag?"

The seal, which depicts a conquistador's helmet and sword, the Native American Zia symbol, and a small rosary, was designed in 1973 to accurately reflect the village's history and not to further any religion.

"The ACLU is once more specifically targeting a cross while it ignores Native American religious symbols. It reveals their desire to target all things Christian, regardless of the fact that the cross in the Tijeras seal is clearly an historic symbol and not an attempt to endorse any particular faith," McCaleb said.ADF


This small town is standing up to the ACLU, and that should be commended. With a population of 474 this is no small feat. Its these small communities the ACLU love to prey on. These kind of lawsuits are the ACLU's speciality, and its sad for an organization that claims it is protecting our civil liberties, to be one that practices daily at stripping them away. We applaud this small town for standing up for their liberty. Thank goodness we have the Alliance Defense Fund out there protecting religious liberty from the secular cleansing of the ACLU. Why the ACLU are allowed to continue their destruction of liberty is beyond me, but its high past time for people to do something about it!

More Of Life's Truths

* Democrats are scared of conservatism in any form. This why they are getting desperate enough to do things like blame natural disasters and their aftermath on Republicans. Democrats are getting comically stupid.

* Condi Rice is probably our only hope at defeating Hillary in the next election.

* Throwing rocks at a beehive never ends well.

* Each city in America should do everything in their power to move sex shops and adult bars out, even though the ACLU and the loony left will fight it. Never ever back down when the loony left or the ACLU put up a fight.

* Americans are too fat. This is not Ronald McDonalds fault. That guy who made that documentary Supersize Me is a propagandist bent on socialism. If your fat kid wants 8 cheeseburgers because of a neat toy, tell him no. Problem solved.

* Hollywood is straight up out of ideas. Want to prove this? Go watch Flightplan starring Jodie Foster. In this movie she couldn't act her way out of a paper bag.

* Richard Simmons is gay, white, and he has an afro. That's an odd combination.

A Couple Of Observations...

* One thing lately that just blows my mind is expensive clothing in expensive stores that come with holes already ripped in them. It's one one of the most idiotic things I've seen in a while. Hey, if people want to save money, buy regular clothes and for 2 dollars I will be happy to rip holes in them for you. I'd like to think I am a fashion genius cause years ago when I was a boy I started this trend I think. We didn't know it was gonna be a fashion trend, we just called it being poor. If the jeans weren't frayed all the way up to the pocket, you still had yourself usable clothing. And at some point your jeans just simply became shorts. Now we have rich frat boys buying jeans with holes and hats with the bill half worn down already. It's like wiping before you go to the bathroom, it just doesn't make sense.

* Have we gotten so tired as a society that we need 8,000 different kinds of energy drinks. Have you tried one of these? I tried a RedBull a couple of days ago and figured out why it gives you energy... It tastes so bad that you feel like you are going to puke your guts out after one taste... Have you ever been tired while you were puking? And then it starts to work a little. You get about 30 to 45 minutes of pure energy, and then you hit rock bottom. At that point the only way you can possibly stay awake is if you ram the can into your head. Seriously it's not worth it. After your 45 minute artificial high you fall hard into fatigue and then you have the shakes for the next 4 hours. No thanks, I'll stick to my old method of giving myself energy...eating doughnuts.

Bush Continues Reign Of Terror On Gulf States


President Bush ignoring critics this week unleashed a second category 5 hurricane into the gulf. Thousands fled as hurricane Rita was poised to bear havoc on the Texas and Louisiana border. "This president is an animal", said Sarah Hanson of Galveston Texas. Hanson and others like her have packed up their families and headed north to escape the devastating blow that this Republican induced fury of a storm is expected to deliver. Even earlier skeptics have finally come around to blame Bush for the tragic weather phenomenon that was previously blamed on nature. Bill Edson of the Texas Center For Weather Prediction thinks he knows why. "It was naive of us to misunderestemate the pure evil that is Bush. He hates minorities, women, and children like the coyote hated the road runner." said Edson as he forced a laugh to try and deal with the fear.
Most believe that Bush's reign of terror in the region is only beginning. Even his cabinet and staff seem to finally be coming to grips with Bush's maniacal mindset. "Ever since he bought that weather machine from the Koreans he just seems to be walking around the White House with this evil smirk", Donald Rumsfeld said of Bush. Condaleeza Rice added, "I knew it was getting bad when he had me contact the National Guard to make sure they were going in before the storm to dismantle the busses that could have been used for rescue and evacuation... Dick [Cheney] told me that all week Bush has been just sort of walking around in a daze mumbling stuff under his breath about Haliburton and minorities and how we have to get rid of the poor to make room for more oil drilling."
Everyone seems to be clear that Bush is the culprit, what is not clear is how he can be stopped. Cheney, Rice and Rumsfeld have been in meetings all week trying to come up with ways to calm Bush down.
"None of us saw this coming, I mean who would have guessed that Bush would be this crazy with power, we are all stumped on what to do about it... One thing we know for sure is if Bush wins that Ebay auction for the Tesla earthquake machine we are all deep deep trouble." Rumsfeld told the AP in an interview. "And with Bush's Ebay feedback rating at a solid 99% it's just not looking good." [AP]

With Roberts The ACLU
Shows Its True Colors

There have been times in the ACLU's existence as an organization that it has had no choice but to out itself as nothing more than a liberal hack group. The nomination of Judge Roberts to the Supreme Court is one of those times. As I listened to Judge Roberts answer question after question at his nomination hearing I realized that he may well be one of the most brilliant lawyers/judges of his time. Every answer he gave slowly shut down the questioner who had hostile intentions with his or her query. He gave textbook perfect answers to any and all of the toughest questions.
So why would an organization that tells us their sole purpose is to fight for the Constitution have anything to say about Roberts? Could it be that even though Roberts is more than qualified to serve he just doesn't fit within the narrow agenda of liberal and socialistic ideas that the ACLU really is striving for?

Look at this quote from a press release posted earlier this month on the ACLU website.
In a recent report, the ACLU analyzed [Roberts] civil rights and civil liberties record, which remains incomplete due to a lack of full government disclosure of Roberts work. But what is known about Roberts record raises serious concerns about his commitment to affirmative action, upholding Roe v. Wade, the First Amendment, gender equality, habeas corpus and the ability of people to go to court to protect their rights.

Nowhere in that quote does it say that any serious concerns have arisen about Roberts ability to uphold the Constitution. Their only apparent complaint is that he may possibly not uphold their liberal wacko ideas. Affirmative Action is not in the Constitution. If and when Roberts takes his oath as a Supreme Court judge, he will not be pledging to uphold Roe V. Wade, he'll be pledging to uphold the constitution. As far as I can tell he's going to be good at it too.
This all goes to prove that the ACLU is not what they say they are. They aren't superheroes fighting for our constitutional freedom. They've already said many times that the Constitution, in its current form, is rubbish. They want a "living document" that can be molded to the whim of a liberal judge. Original intent and past precedent apparently take a back seat to the mood and whim of some tree hugging hack who wasn't hugged enough as a child. No, the ACLU is not fighting for what's right under the Constitution, they are fighting for bad ideas that are so far removed from what America is that even moderates cringe. It's scary. It's what drives this site and sites like StopTheACLU.com to do what we do, to fight back. And make sure that you visit StopTheACLU.com often to find ways to do just that.

Now... Did you know that you and I are helping fund the ACLU. That's right, you and I are being forced to fund the ACLU's socialist agenda. SIGN THE PETITION TO GET THE ACLU OFF THE TAXPAYER'S DOLE

Cold Hard Realities

Truth is not relative. Some atheists will say "truth is relative". They say this apparently unaware that if that is true, then the statement "truth is relative" is also relative and is therefore a self-defeating statement. Unfortunately the hedonism movement is growing out of that very statement. And also unfortunately the left in America tend to gravitate towards hedonism. Hedonism, for those of you that don't know, is a philosophy of pleasure. It basically means 'if it feels good do it'. Of course most of them end that by saying, 'unless it harms someone else'. Here is the problem with that... There are many things in this life that are wrong yet do not harm someone else. Running a stoplight at 3 in the morning when no one else is around does not harm anyone else. Stealing a cable signal doesn't harm anyone else. Stealing Wi-Fi signals doesn't harm anyone else. The main goal of the hedonist would be not to get caught. You can actually hear this philosophy in action if you listen to today's music. I have heard many many rappers rapping about cheating on women and then just denying it. "Wasn't me". This is a result of hedonism. May seem like small potatoes but it's a growing philosophy in society and frankly it kind of scares me.
I don't think truth is relative. I think right and wrong were tangible and real even before any of us were born. If there is no such thing as a right and a wrong then why are so many of us asking where God is when tragedy strikes? Why do people only believe in God when bad things happen?
I don't want my blog to turn into a philosophy blog but so much of politics has to do with religion. So often the right is referred to as the religious right. Well I think the left is just as religious. Everyone has a God whether they know it or not. It can be a God like Christ or Allah or Buddha, or it can be money, or self, or material things. Anything that consumes us can be a God. So in my opinion, and from what I can observe, the left in America has self, money, and government as their God. It's something I've talked about several times on here before.
My final question is. If for the left Government is their final cold hard reality, what then is their answer for the question of truth? What is true? What is right and what is wrong?

10,000 Hits Later...

When I started this blog I never expected to get readers. I thought maybe my close friends would check it out once every two weeks or something like that. Well today I passed 10,000 hits. I can't believe it. I never started this blog for any other reason except I have way too many opinions to just keep it to myself. Having people read those opinions is just the icing on the cake.

So I just wanted to thank everyone who has visited The Life And Times. Thank you for your comments. Just thanks for reading. I am having a blast blogging everyday. It's like having a platform and a megaphone. I'd encourage anyone to do it.

There is much more to come for TLAT. It's only been 9 months since I started this crazy thing. I'm going to keep on trucking through. The democrats are getting crazier by the day and I have keyboard in hand ready to call them on it. I Can't wait for Michael Moore's new movie. That's always good for a months of material. I also can't wait to see what Hillary Clinton has in store for us along with Joe Biden, Howard Dean, George Soros, and Cindy Sheehan (She just told Bush to get the troops out of "occupied New Orleans". Can someone say coo coo?) The dems make this too easy.

Thanks again,

Aaron

Sometimes War Is The Answer...Updated

One thing that has been bugging me lately is how the liberals are getting bolder in their hatred for the military. It's one thing to question Bush, It's another thing to question the troops. You see these signs that say "war is never the answer". Do you understand how utterly ignorant that is? You have to completely bury your head in the sand to believe that. Without war this world would be a complete toilet. We'd probably all be dead. Peace is the goal...War is often a tool to achieve that goal. It's not ideal, it's not what we want...But fortunately there are men and women in this country that love the awesome gift of freedom so much that they are perfectly willing to lay down their lives for it.

The U.S. military is the best of the best. These guys will do the job come hell or high water. It is absolutely the truth that if you run from a Marine you will only die tired. They train harder than any other force in the world and they've earned the right to do what they do. They go through absolute detail to make sure that no innocent lives are harmed...Often giving up their lives to make sure of this. They have more power than any other military force in the world and abuse it the least.

When these squirmy weenie little liberals start showing hatred for the military, I hope all of us will get right back in their face and defend our troops with gusto. The only reason they are even able to complain and insult the military is because the military gave them that right.

And if you are reading this and are in the military or have served in any branch of the service, including the national guard, THANK YOU...You have supporters who will NOT be deterred by the ones that hate. Bring it on!

Update:
And now we have the military being spat upon by the left through Cindy Sheehan. They hid behind her. She became the rag doll that the left used to toss stones at our fine men and women. It's not Bush they are hurting, it's men and women who are in action. If they truly "hated the mission but loved the military" as they say then they would hold mass organization of food and supplies to send to the troops. They'd be in the street welcoming them home. They'd respect the families of the wounded and dead. Instead they stand outside military hospitals and protest the war. They fight to get pictures of the flag-draped caskets blasted on tv. They clearly can't put their money where their unpatriotic mouth is. It's a great comfort to our enemy to see such blatant anti-American hatred within our own borders. War is being waged on us whether we like it or not. Bush is holding them at bay. Until the left understands that it's fight or die then this war will only trickle along and more people will be killed. If America united as one against all terrorism, the war would serve it's purpose and we could once again get back to the freedom we so enjoy.

When The State Becomes God

Crossposted at Stoptheaclu.com

Just yesterday a lefty judge ruled the pledge of allegiance unconstitutional. It's pretty simple, either we are a nation under God, or a nation without God. I'm not sure the far left know how dangerous it is that they are trying to take God out of our history, and how fragile our moral fabric has become. It wasn't that long ago the out of control judicial branch ruled in favor of the federal government to take away our private property. There is no doubt the judicial branch has too much power that goes unchecked. It's time Congress step up and put a stop to the judicial tyranny and legislation from the bench. Rehnquist said it should be an impeachable offense. I completely agree.

Part of the process of exposing the radical agenda of the ACLU is to expose some of the deceptive tactics that it uses. One of those methods is often referred to as "spinning". One example of this is to take a quote from someone, take it out of context, and claim that it means something completely different than it's original intent. That is the case in one lie that the ACLU uses in many cases....
The Separation Of Church And State Myth

Not that many people could quote you the first amendment, but many would tell you that it refers to separation of church and state. That is a common misconception, and is absolutely not true. The words "separation of Church and State" are not in the first amendment. What the first amendment does say is,"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."This falsehood comes up almost every time religion and politics touch, and usually by the ACLU. Most recently it has come up with the issue of the ten commandments case.

So where did this myth come from?

It all started with a letter that Thomas Jefferson wrote to Danburry Baptist Association in 1802. The focus is on a portion of the letter where Jefferson states, "...I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state..." Jefferson wrote this letter to the Danburry Baptist Association to assure them in their concerns that the government would not establish a national denomination.

One of the most significant in a series of cases heard by the Supreme Court on the establishment of religion clause of the First Amendment was Engel v. Vitale, 370 U.S. 421 (1962). It was in this case that the phrase "Wall of separation of Church and State" became the cry of the far-left, and anti-Christian movement.

Intent of The Founding Fathers

So, was the original intent of our founding fathers to keep religion completely out of the government? Well, I will let them speak for themselves.

If Jefferson believed that the government should keep its hands out of religion completely, then why, while President of the United States, and the first elected president of the Washington, D.C. public school board, did he place the Bible and the Isaac Watt's hymnal into the public school system as required reading?Source

"Religion is the only solid basis of good morals; therefore education should teach the precepts of religion, and the duties of man towards God."Quote(Gouverneur Morris, 1792, Notes on the Form of a Constitution for France.)
Founding father who physically wrote the Constitution, and most active member of Constitutional Convention, spoke 173 times on the floor.Source

"Why...should not the Bible regain the place it once held as a school book? Its morals are pure, its examples captivating and noble. The reverence for the sacred book that is thus early impressed last long; and, probably, if not impressed in infancy, never takes hold of the mind."Quote
(Fisher Ames, The Works of Fisher Ames, 1809.) Founding father who on September 20, 1789 helped provide the wording for the First Amendment. Source

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars.... The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and cherish them.... Let it simply be asked, 'Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert?' ...And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds...reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."
(George Washington, 1796, Farewell Address.)Quote

These are just a few quotes showing how the founding fathers recognized religion's place in the founding of our government. The First Amendment was meant to ensure the churches protection from government interference. Not vice versa.

"There was a secular study done by the American Political Science Review on the political documents of the founding era, which was 1760-1805.
This study found that 94% of the documents that went into the founding era were based on the Bible, and of that 34% of the contents were direct quotations from the Bible.
88% of students nationwide are educated in the public school system.
The Bible was the foundation and blueprint for our Constitution, Declaration of Independence, educational system, and our entire history until the last 20 to 30 years".Source

As a matter of fact, Congress funded the printing of the first English language Bible printed in America. It came to be known as the "Bible of the American Revolution".

So to downplay the significance of Christian influence in our nation's founding, is to rewrite history in a false light. The founding fathers never intended for the secularization of the government that groups like the ACLU are advancing now. They wanted freedom to express religion. That is why it is the very first amendment in the constitution.

Who Has Endowed You With Your Rights?

It is a very important question, because whoever gives you the rights also has the power to take them away. Is it the state or God? Here is what the Declaration of Independence has to say about it:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Source

If you believe that your rights come from the state or society and not God, it brings up the question that George Washington asked...

"..Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert?' ...And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds...reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."
(George Washington, 1796, Farewell Address.)

Or the one that Jefferson himself asked...""Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?"
(Thomas Jefferson,Notes on the State of Virginia, 1781.)

And in summary, I will ask the same question. If you completely remove God from having any role in our government, you have handed your rights over to the State. The founders unanimously agreed that our rights were endowed to us by a Creator. They all signed the famous declaration that stated so. So, their intent should be obvious. It will be a scary day for those in the majority who believe in a deity, if the State tries to assume that role. Especially when it comes to our civil rights. And the secular direction that America is being pushed in is leading us far away from the original intent of our founding fathers. When the Courts have assumed the role of stripping us of our first amendment rights to express religion, they are playing God! And the fact that this is already beginning to happen, is a legitimate thing for us to fear.

It's time we stand up and make our voices known.

A Couple Of Observations...

* I love corporations! Especially the ones that the wimpy left has deemed "evil". I proudly eat my McDonald's Big Mac while strolling up and down the aisles of Wal-Mart buying cheap products. I love these corporations because I too have the same opportunity that they did. Sam Walton's story is one of the American dream. Libs hate it because not everyone is on the same mediocre boring level, forced to bow to government so that everyone is knocked down a peg in the name of political correctness and "economic fairness". There is nothing fair about punishing achievement. How boring life would be under fascist liberal rule, where everyone is a number and not an individual. Can someone pass me my 42 ounce Diet Coke and QP-With-Che?

* I've been so proud of my fellow Americans the past few days for the way they pulled together to help out those in need. People giving what they have in order to help those that have not. It's outstanding. On top of that, I once again have been proud of President Bush. Once again the half worthless party attacked him for not being Jesus Christ incarnate, and once again Bush responded by shoving forward with the task at hand. America is still the greatest country on God's green earth.

The Madness Of Divorce

Divorce is on the rise in this great country, rising to levels never before seen. And why? Well to tell you the truth for the most part, with lots of exceptions, I blame men. I blame that hedonistic mindset that dwells in us all. It's our sin nature to look out for #1. But men in this country have let movies, media, and peers without our best interest in mind tell us that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. They say that being a man isn't complete until you have barbie hanging on your left arm and a glass of beer in the other. There is nothing manly about abandoning a promise. So many of us are living as if there is nothing bigger than us. Ourselves are our only God. And what a lousy God at that.
Men have got to get a grip on reality. If a man leaves his wife in search for a more trophy like wife he just might be happy.......for the equivalent of about 5 minutes. Than guess what, that hole that he was trying to fill will be gaping once again. So goodbye trophy wife #2. And the sick cycle carousel will continue on and on. And that's because the void is being filled with items that cannot satisfy eternally.
This is why God patterned marriage the way he did. Because when you have your eyes first set to him then the satisfaction in your wife and family will be enhanced. The void is filled and filled eternally. It's something that American men are so ignorant to that having 4 or 5 failed marriages seems minor to them. It's an American disease that is frustrating and scary. Love God, Love your wife, and be happy. It's really not a complicated thing to understand. It's not always easy to love God and your wife, but nothing that is worthwhile in this world is ever easy. Never forget that.

Clueless Democrats

Dear Democrats,
If you sense the frustration in our collective republican voices, it's not because you blamed Bush for a disaster only God can prevent. It's because you learned nothing from the 1998, 2000, 2002, and 2004 elections. Don't get me wrong, we like it. We like it because we like winning, and we do it so often and so thoroughly that it's like clockwork now. You can't base a party on the hatred of another party. There is nothing there for a voter to cling to. We tried to tell you to get a plan but you just weren't having it. We tried to tell you to distance yourself from Michael Moore and George Soros but I guess those two fulfill some kind of strange need for you to have angry, fat, white men do your bidding. Cindy Sheehan obviously became another tool of your hatred. She was nothing more than a scapegoat to funnel your baseless anger on. I say "was" because her ability to shock Americans is wearing off and she will be tossed to the side like a piece of trash because her value to you is only good as long as she has the ability to hold the liberal media in a trance. Although they will milk it for every last drop until the next shlubb steps forward to be used for the anti-Bush movement.

Well, Thanks for blaming Katrina on Bush. Makes even Charles Manson look like Stephen Hawking. I can't wait to see which natural disaster Bush has in the works for the coming year. I bet it's something like an earthquake in Nebraska...No one would ever see that coming. Brilliant.

Happy hating,

Ways To Improve Tennis

* Make the court surface a deep plush carpeting and hire commentators that have deep "barry white" voices. This will give the game more sex appeal. "It's 30, Love baby....ohhhhhhhh yeaaaah."

* Shrink the racquets down to the size of a small paddle, lower the playing surface to the size of 10 Ft by 5 Ft area with a smaller net, raise the surface up on a table, finally make the ball a small plastic device....Have Asians play it really fast.

* Get a token Asian/black mixed guy to excel at the sport...Hey it worked for golf.

* Change the scoring system. For example instead of a score of 30 to Love the score will be 30 to Deep Appreciation.

* Get hecklers in the audience. I'd be more apt to watch if someone was yelling out insults and holding up signs that say stuff like "Not today Andre".

* Instead of just having them shake hands over the net at the end, the loser should have to sit up on one of those dunk tanks while the winner hit tennis balls at the target.

* Make the two opponents wear full football padding and gear. It'd look cool plus it would virtually elmininate the many senseless tennis related injuries that occur each year.

* Get a mascot named Dennis. "He's Dennis and he loves tennis!"

* They should play in any weather condition. "She goes back for the forearm...back......back....Oh she falls and splits her head open on the ice. And the crowd goes wild!!!"

* Hit your opponent in the head, win a set.


I'm out!

Katrina's Aftermath: The ACLU's Worst Nightmare

As with any socialistic organization the days following the recent tragic hurricane must really be eating away at morale. The underlying goal of any organization like the ACLU is to puff up the government. The government to them is the deity. It's the savior of the people. So, you can imagine their frustration when everywhere you look you see neighbors, sons, daughters, grandparents, and children giving food, medicine, and even living space. They aren't standing around waiting for Ted Kennedy to come swooping in like Superman to save the American people. It's neighbor helping neighbor.
Sure, the government is chipping in untold billions of dollars to help. But tossing money at the victims is only part of the help that is needed. Man power from endless amounts of volunteers who aren't related to the government are the real force behind the healing of the Gulf region.
During national tragedy socialism and communism fail. Individuals succeed where governments fail. Now once we get the ACLU to tell the truth about their not-so-hidden socialistic agenda hopefully they will fail as well.

This Just In: George Bush Is Not God

Ben Stein has written a brilliant opinion piece that deserves to be read in it's entirety. Here is a good portion of it:


Get Off His Back (Updated)

A few truths, for those who have ears and eyes and care to know the truth:

1.) The hurricane that hit New Orleans and Mississippi and Alabama was an astonishing tragedy. The suffering and loss of life and peace of mind of the residents of those areas is acutely horrifying.

2.) George Bush did not cause the hurricane. Hurricanes have been happening for eons. George Bush did not create them or unleash this one.

3.) George Bush did not make this one worse than others. There have been far worse hurricanes than this before George Bush was born.

4.) There is no overwhelming evidence that global warming exists as a man-made phenomenon. There is no clear-cut evidence that global warming even exists. There is no clear evidence that if it does exist it makes hurricanes more powerful or makes them aim at cities with large numbers of poor people. If global warming is a real phenomenon, which it may well be, it started long before George Bush was inaugurated, and would not have been affected at all by the Kyoto treaty, considering that Kyoto does not cover the world's worst polluters -- China, India, and Brazil. In a word, George Bush had zero to do with causing this hurricane. To speculate otherwise is belief in sorcery.

5.) George Bush had nothing to do with the hurricane contingency plans for New Orleans. Those are drawn up by New Orleans and Louisiana. In any event, the plans were perfectly good: mandatory evacuation. It is in no way at all George Bush's fault that about 20 percent of New Orleans neglected to follow the plan. It is not his fault that many persons in New Orleans were too confused to realize how dangerous the hurricane would be. They were certainly warned. It's not George Bush's fault that there were sick people and old people and people without cars in New Orleans. His job description does not include making sure every adult in America has a car, is in good health, has good sense, and is mobile. PLEASE read the full article.

I repeat, George Bush is not God. He cannot stop hurricanes.

* There is nothing more entertaining than watching a midget play Dance Dance Revolution. Go little man, Go!

* Hearing politicians tell us "we" can't "afford" a tax cut is like listening to a glutton tell you he can't "afford" a diet. In no other context do people talk about "paying for" money they don't have. I can't pay for your refusal to give me money because I need a yacht. -- Ann Coulter

* You could afford your house without your government - if it weren't for your government. -- Rush Limbaugh

* Michael Moore is having a triple with extra cheese from Wendy's right now.

* A warm chocolate chip cookie and a cold glass of milk is one of the greatest combinations of all time. It's the closest thing to heaven on earth that can be had.

Country Music

I realize that I am in the minority on this one even amongst my circle of friends. But I loathe modern day country music so bad it's not funny. I just want to walk up to Kenny Chesney and slap the hat off his bald head. It's like watching a circus with these rednecks. I hate it almost as bad as I hate self-loving rappers. Let's face it, any music genre that encourages people to wear cowboy hats when they haven't even been anywhere near a cow is just bad music. And the belt buckles, oh don't get me started. If your belt buckle is bigger than your fist, you need help.
I say all that knowing full well that in my teens I was a big country music fan. I've seen George Strait 5 times in concert. I even saw....gulp...Brooks and Dunn. Everyone has a past they are slightly embarrassed over.
Also keep in mind that every once in a while a country song comes out that I will catch myself humming later on when I'm working or something. It's not like the genre hasn't put out it's rare gem.
Another thing to remember is that old country does not necessarily apply to this hatred of mine. Johnny Cash was the man. So was Marty Robbins. Even Willie Nelson has written some of the most recognizable tunes ever. And Patsy Cline still holds a special place in my MP3 player. But Tim McGraw and the gang are rubbish and hold no place in the old IPod.

Country haters unite!

Where's Giuliani When You Need Him?

And now we see why running a city is not as easy as everyone thinks. The mayor in New Orleans just doesn't seem to have the leadership skills that are needed in a time of crisis. It's not a race thing. It's a skill thing. The New Orleans mayor should have had a plan, and 5 back up plans. He should have had his police trained so that they knew the plans backwards and forwards.

Where is Giuliani when you need him?

And to the people who are blaming Bush... Grow up you nimrod. BUSH IS NOT GOD!!!! He cannot stop the wind and the rain. He cannot change the speeds on a truck that is carrying supplies to the area. He cannot get in a boat and rescue each person personally. He is not the savior of the world and he should not be held to that standard. Ironic how the left are atheists yet pretend that Bush is simply holding back his omniscient and omnipresent, sovereign power just to spite people. Wake up and smell the leadership that is George W. Bush...A man that will go down in the history books as one of the greats. Remember that I said that!

Top 3 Ways To Stop The ACLU

There are many ways to support a cause. Getting involved with a movement can change the world around you. Strength in numbers is still the best way to make change. Well stopping the ACLU is no different. We fight because we truly believe that the ACLU is a destructive organization. I think that there are three specific ways where you can get involved that will really make an impact. Doing one or all of these will help guarantee religious and political freedom for ages to come.

3. Get involved with as many religious organizations as you can, especially on college campuses. College Campuses are like the cess pool that the ACLU feed off of. They love to mold minds where they can use propaganda to influence. If we can counter that with organizations then we can cut off the ACLU at the heart of it's agenda. Many many churches and religious affiliations have campus clubs and organizations. Find out some way, any way to get on board.

2. Write your congressman and/or senator. Let them know that you are not interested in voting for any candidate that supports the ACLU in any way, shape, or form. You can find out who to write Here.

1. Visit StoptheACLU.com on a daily basis. Memorize that site. The resources on there are endless. Any one of these resources are a great way to do your part in the fight. Giving a donation to STA would ensure that the fight continues...You see, if we don't fight, the ACLU will gladly take over and turn America into West Europe. They are champing at the bit now. STA has opportunities of reaching out to millions of Americans if only they had the funds.

Any one of these 3 are a great way to get involved. Check back here every Thursday for more information in the coming months.
