Oh, Obama! Microchips! Gun Control! Is The End Near?
I enjoy living in rural Kentucky most of the time. Good people who are willing to jump at the chance to take care of you when you have a problem. People who care about one another. They smile and say “hello” at you, even if they don’t know you. They take pride in themselves and their work. It’s a lot like the town I grew up in Arkansas. I love small towns, people who love life and love their neighbors. Recently, there seems to be a growing outrage at the Obama administration and the direction it is headed in. Before...
What If The USSR Still Existed?
First off, understand that I’m not an expert in politics or sociology in any way or form. This is me throwing ideas in the air and see what sticks and what falls apart. Having said the latter DISCLAIMER, I can say (type) what I feel. Having two superpowers — the US and the USSR — kept the world on check as a stalemate game of chess where the queens and kings were nuclear arsenals and trigger-happy men. Aside from the level of animosity between these two unions at the time, which I still don’t understand, no one wanted to do anything...

British Royal Changes Its Rule For Women
Today is a rather profound day for women in the world and it just might go unnoticed. Reuters is reporting that the British Monarch has changed its rules regarding succession. Commonwealth leaders agreed to drop rules that give sons precedence as heir to the throne. In other words, if Prince William and his wife Kate have a girl, she can become the ruling monarch.  Under the old rules, a younger brother would be given precedence. British Prime Minister David Cameron called the rules of succession outdated. “The idea that a younger son should become monarch instead of an elder daughter...

The Kingdom of God and the Death of Gadhafi
Today, we’ve witnessed the death of yet another enemy of the United States, and the world in General.  As I write this, the media outlets are exploding with the Grotesque pictures and videos of Moammar Gadhafi’s death.  The celebrations are beginning.  The firsts are pumping.  The chanting is ringing out loud and clear.  “USA!  USA!  USA!”  Even within the American Church, rejoicing is evident.  I just received an email from a pastor friend of mine who made it clear that his revelry had begun.  “Good riddance, huh?  Hope he ‘s enjoying Hell!”  Again, i sit here and meditate on what...

Riots In Greece
Greece is really screwed up right now.  MSNBC is reporting that youths hurled stones and caused a riot in Central Athens today.  14 police officers were injured. If you follow the economy, you’ll know that Greece has been a central country in so much of our economy swings in the stock market.  Everything seems to hinge on our what happens there. So is Greece the shaping of things to come, or do you see us making it through this mess?  ...
