At least I'm in good company with the likes of over 400 SCIENTIST (ie...not politicians) including; climatologists, oceanographers, geologists, glaciologists, physicists and paleoclimatologists who also dispute Gore's THEORY.
I'm also comforted by the fact that I'm also on the same side as the 4 global temperature tracking outlets; Hadley, NASA's GISS, UAH, and RSS; who all say that the current warming CYCLE appears to have possible ended due to last year being the coolest on record in nearly 100 years. By the way, these are the same agencies Gore has used to show warming temps, but I guess they must have all been bought out by big oil and now there data is flawed.

Well, CBS has totally busted her. I've been trying to post the direct video but it isn't letting me so here is the link for the CBS report showing what really happened is vastly different than Clinton's version.
Now her campaign is in full spin mode trying to say she misspoke. Well, the problem with that is that she repeated the same story on at least 3 different occasions and posted it to her website before being called on it. Also, I find it rather hard to imagine such a major mistake in memory. Having to take cover from incoming fire is not something your misspeak about. It is something that either happened or that you make up for effect, which seems to be the case her as she was trying to bolster her foreign policy experience.

I’ve been painting again. Below are my two new oil paintings. The first painting I called “Ocean of Life” and was a donation for a Silent Auction to support an orphanage in Burma. The second painting I called “Class” was for myself or to sell if I got a good price on it. It has been hard to find a place or a nook to do these paintings, so I’ve done it in a bathroom shower stand, it’s a decent size and private – which I liked.

My liberal bias radar went into overdrive. My first thought was what were they considering safe in this study. There was no way they could be ranking it on violence and murder rates, which is what one would normally first assume in such a study. Sure enough my thoughts were confirmed.
Here are some of the things that caused a state to drop in ranking: no laws requiring children to wear helmets when riding bikes, low or no regulations for playground equipment at schools and parks, lack of mandatory healthcare coverage for children, low standards for car seats, etc. In other words, states with liberal governments that have tons of government interference in raising your kids will keep you kids safe while states that let parents decide how to raise their kids are very unsafe states.

Another important piece of this article is about a bill in Congress, Child Soldier Protection Act that will block funding to governments who use children as soldiers that we all need to support. We are currently giving military assistance to 8 of the 9 governments who use child soldiers and this bill would put an end to that.

In American fashion as you can see on all the pics, soldiers have left their mark. Here is one I could totally agree with, especially since I just happened to be all LSU'd out that day (and no I didn't do it). GEAUX TIGERS INDEED!!! =)

HONDURAS (Compass) Pastor Misael Argeñal was beaten and robbed in December by organized criminals. “It was an act of intimidation,” he said. A week earlier, he was threatened with death if he didn’t stop his ministry.
While the short snippet doesn't say it, I'd be pretty willing to bet that the persecution is from other "Christians" from the Catholic church. That to me in many ways is even worse than from Muslims or other religions especially by what it says to the rest of the world who view all "Christians" as the same whether Catholic, Baptist, or whatever.

He uses two men in the Bible, Adam and Jesus. Obviously Adam didn't fulfill his role, so he is the model of what not to do. While Jesus is the model of what to do. There are four traits that God laid out in the first three chapters of Genesis that pertains to His original desire for men:
- Rejects Passivity
- Accepts Responsibility
- Leads Courageously
- Expects the Great Reward, God's Reward
Adam didn't fulfill this plan. When Eve was being tempted, instead of stepping up, he was passive. When God called him out, instead of accepting responsibility, he passed blame. Both of those showed his lack of courage and that he was looking for personal reward, equal with God, as opposed to the Greater reward, eternity with God.
Jesus on the other hand was definitely never passive. He accepted the responsibility of carrying the sin of the world all the way to the cross. He was the epitome of courage all the way to death. And His was able to do all that because He kept His eyes focused on the Greater Reward.
That is just a quick snapshot of two weeks of this 24 week course that has taught me so much about what it means to be a true Biblical man as God intended. If you ever get a chance to attend the study, I'd highly encourage it.

First, a state appeals court has issued a ruling that could bring criminal charges against 166,000 families who are homeschooling their children saying they are required to have them in public school or a state approved private school which is absolutely ridiculous. If it isn't overturned by the state supreme court this will definitely be brought to the federal courts and could have major implications on homeschoolers nationwide. How far we have fallen when the state has more say over a child's education than parents.

Second, in another absolutely ridiculous ruling, a judge has denied a foster teen's request for early entry to the Marines because of her anti-war views going so far as to say her reasons for denying the request was because she didn't support the war and didn't trust recruiters. Can someone please show me in the California foster system procedures where personal opinion is allowed to decide a court case? Yet that is what we get over and over from liberal judges.

With the election only one day away, the new second place holder, Laurinda Calongne, may want to watch her back because Sawyer will need to come after her strong if he wants to regain his second place position for a chance in a runoff.
Calongne would make an easy target for Sawyer due to her financial support of democratic Senator Mary Landrieu and Congressman Charles Melacon. From March 2006 to March 2007, she gave $3000 in donations to Melancon, and in May of 2007, she gave Landrieu $1000 according to opensecrets.

If the Dem nomination goes through to the convention, which at this point is extremely likely especially with FL and MI in the balance, that will only give them 2 months to recoup as opposed to 8 months McCain now has and there will be plenty of very upset Dems due to their pick losing a very bloody battle. Once again, this is continuing to be a very interesting year!

As I'm sure is the case in every war, sometimes you have to find humor in the things that cause the most trials. The above sign is on the side of one of the buildings on base and when a co-worker showed it to me, I just had to snap a picture. VBIEDs (army term for car bombs) are definitely not welcomed to park there and hopefully they won't be parking anywhere in Iraq soon.
