Click in to hear and see it, via Real Clear Politics, but do finish this article and become familiar with what is linked... Arlen Williams Tue, 04 Oct 2011 16:18:41 -0500 Looking for salvation in all the wrong places (Ken Connor) - The need to worship is hardwired into the human psyche. Yet, as unfashionable as it's become in the last century to worship the God of Creation, the same cannot be said of the worship of political heroes. The most notable and horrific examples that come to mind are found in the frenzied, almost religious zeal that led to the rise of tyrants like Hitler, Stalin, and Mao. One would think that the 20th century would have broken us of our delusions about one man's ability to perfect society, but think again... Ken Connor Tue, 04 Oct 2011 16:15:35 -0500 Why it feels like a great depression (Kevin Price) - Recently I had coffee with a friend of mine and we discussed the economy. This particular associate has some years on me and we both agreed this is the worse economy that either of us had ever witness. However, as we concurred, we were also both surprised by this reality, because we had witnessed terrible economies...

This is precisely why any preacher who is not a novice will use the standard introduction, three points and a conclusion to keep listeners from falling off into inattention. In the case of Obama's indignant public reproof of the republicans at the recent GOP debate in Orlando on September 22, 2011, three points and one sad conclusion are all that's needed... Michael Bresciani Tue, 04 Oct 2011 16:15:20 -0500 Is hatred for the Fed erasing the Left-Right divide? (Donald Hank) - The video linked below provides a glimpse of why we are not a free nation, but also, how we can be free if we play our cards right and at least temporarily stop the artificially induced hostilities between Democrat and Republican voters... Donald Hank Tue, 04 Oct 2011 16:15:09 -0500 Obama's 'gay' military: a sign of the times (Monte Kuligowski) - Bill Clinton's policy of "don't ask, don't tell," seemed harmless enough at the time. It gave activists what they claimed to want, legal protection, while leaving in place the military's prohibition against homosexual conduct. So long as "gay" military personnel kept their homosexuality private the relevant command was barred from making inquiry; even if code violations were suspected...

(Sher Zieve) - With all of its pretense of sending open letters to Obama pleading with him to stop his illegal and Congressional bypassing behaviors, Congress patently refuses to stop Dictator-in-Chief Obama from destroying the United States of America and enslaving its people. The latest "plea" that prompted this column is the 26 September 2011 Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) begging letter to the US "dear leader"... Sher Zieve Mon, 03 Oct 2011 12:58:23 -0500 The First Lady is now raffle coordinator ( Jeannieology) - Originally posted at BIG Government The way Mrs. Obama flings around orders, the title of "First Lady" should be changed to Commander-in-Chieftess. Remember when "Big Thriver" Michelle Obama reminded the nation that, unlike herself, most Americans don't want the "whole pie" because whether they know it or not, "most...feel blessed just being able to thrive a little bit?"... Jeannieology Mon, 03 Oct 2011 12:58:10 -0500 The right to keep and bear cameras (Tim Dunkin) - One of the fundamental premises upon which any truly free society must be based is the notion that the government is open, transparent, and accountable to the citizens. To the extent that this is not the case, a society cannot be called "free," and it is a notable, and lamentable, fact of modern America that our government at all levels has been growing more and more secretive, less and less accountable for blatant wrongdoing on the part of its officers and employees... Tim Dunkin Mon, 03 Oct 2011 12:58:01 -0500 Who should replace Andy Rooney? (Moshe Phillips) - CBS News and the producers of Sixty Minutes have a unique opportunity to add a bold new voice to network television with the retirement of Andy Rooney and at the same time change the popular view of network TV as a bastion of leftist bias . In 2002 Rooney remarked in an interview with CNN's Larry King that "There is just no question that I, among others, have a liberal bias. I mean, I'm consistently liberal in my opinions"... Moshe Phillips Mon, 03 Oct 2011 12:57:47 -0500 Clinton's Africa vision is out of focus, say critics (Jim Kouri) - On Monday, October 3, 2011, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will meet with 40 women entrepreneurs from 36 African nations participating in the 2011 African Women's Entrepreneurship Program, at the U.S. Department of State. The African Women's Entrepreneurship Program is a people-to-people exchange that connects women and enhances their ability to be key economic drivers in communities and countries worldwide... Jim Kouri Mon, 03 Oct 2011 12:57:32 -0500 It never ends (Armand C. Hale) - I get a kick by the main stream media (MSM) blindingly and gleefully toting Obama around like he is the greatest thing in the world since sliced bread. You real don't see the same treatment of others who disagree with what the MSM promotes. They are the ultimate special interest group by far! They're as far away of being "just a news service" as the farthest star is away from the earth... Armand C. Hale Mon, 03 Oct 2011 12:57:24 -0500
