CUBE FARM: An office filled with cubicles. PRAIRIE DOGGING: When someone yells or drops something loudly in a cube farm, and people's heads pop up over the walls to see what's going on. OHNOSECOND: That miniscule fraction of time in which you realize that you've just made a BIG mistake.
In 1796 the US Supreme Court issued this ruling, "By our form of government, the Christian religion is the established religion, and all sects and denominations of Christians are placed on equal footing." Some 57 years later, after Congress was petitioned to separate Christian principles from government, in 1853 the House Judiciary Committee issued their formal report, including these words: "In this age there is no substitute for Christianity. This was the religion of the founders of the republic, and they expected it to be the religion of their dependents. The great vital, conservative elements in our system is the belief of our people in the pure doctrines and divine truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ." - - - Dr. Gerald Beavan
GOOD LOSERS In a culture obsessed with success and “winners,” we all need reminders of what really matters.
A quote from the Iraq Study Group just released says:
"The United States cannot achieve its goals in the Middle East unless it deals directly with the Arab-Israeli conflict and regional instability. There must be a renewed and sustained commitment by the United States to a comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace on all fronts: Lebanon, Syria and President Bush's June 2002 commitment to a two-state solution for Israel and Palestine..."
Translation: For there to be peace, Israel must give away more of its God-given land. It's all Israel's fault.
1. History has proven that such give-aways do not bring peace but more hostility (and less security for Israel).
2. The Arabs do not want a two-state solution. They want a one-state solution -- that is, destroying Israel! This has been made clear by Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran, etc. Appeasement and negotiations with terrorists never work and is always seen as a sign of weakness.
3. Whatever failure there has been in Iraq has been due to (1) American political correctness and cultural hyper-sensitivity such as in not killing Muqtada al-Sadr and other murderers hiding in mosques, and literally leveling hostile locations, including mosques, in a scorched-earth policy, just as we did in WWII, and (3) the America-hating left in continually undermining our efforts, just as in Vietnam. They and their media enablers are hungry tor American defeat.
If the left wins this one, there is no hope for America or Israel. It appears to be all a part of the coming Tribulation and the great suffering.
