The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost,
Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration,
politics without God, heaven without hell.
“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.”
― William Saroyan
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery. -- Winston Churchill
Ignorance is not an opinion, liberals
I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. C. S. Lewis
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
THERE WILL BE NO THREATS OF ANY KIND AT THIS BLOG, TO POLITICIANS OR OTHER COMMENTERS. thank you.
Been reading George Orwell and Ayn Rand again, have we?
I agree… and now we have thousands on the move coming for the cheese. Let’s hope Trump’s mousetrap holds.
Perfect! So clear.
It brings TANSTAAFL to mind.
“THERE AIN’T NO SUCH THING AS A FREE LUNCH”
Except they don’t die in America, they’re just told/motivated to vote democrat.
I definitely agree!
We have a custodian that baited traps with peanut butter. Worked every time. What’s that prove? Doesn’t matter what’s free. They’ll take it. True story.
Great responses, thanks!
I had a rather long chat with a teenager of Mexican heritage today at school….such a thoughtful, bright, sweet girl…. I could tell I was REALLY raising her eyebrows because she’s heard ONE WAY of looking at things and I so softly and subtly but assuredly told her the truth ….how Obama started the anti-cop downhill slide after Prof Henry Gates’ incident, how Trump’s laughed at for pulling out of the climate accord and how the media ‘forgot to mention’ that he added “…but we want to keep working hard toward clean air and water”….”really?” she asked. “Yup!” says I.
I told her the wonderful Churchill line about liberals and conservatives…all heart if you’re young and liberal, but no brain if you’re older and liberal……… I could see the wheels spinning.
I reminded her that if we take in SO many foreigners and pay and pay and pay, this country will be as broke as all the others, not the special country anymore with a big heart which can help others….”We’ll be broke,” says I.
We talk about Socialism and she was ALL OVER hating that…hurrah!
I love these moments…SO MUCH I can’t tell you. To the point where she finally asked “Mrs. Z, how did you find your voice and be able to talk about these things?”
I said “You make sure you’re well up on the subject so you can talk from what you know, you talk about things you are passionate about but do NOT get too passionate because then you immediately lose your audience….just try it, don’t stop, just be smart…”
Good advice Z. Keep Cool and talk common sense.

Thanks for the encouragement, Kid…I’m afraid Mr and Mrs. Z both were SO passionate on conservatism we did turn people off. I have to work HARD at being subtler and softer, and today was a good feeling…and I KNOW she heard it. Lovely girl..
People who are too emotional are often dismissed immediately. I believe it is an instinctual thing even with dumb people. Calmly, Logically. If that don’t work nothing will.
Thanks, guys 🙂
Z, I wish we could clone you a thousand times and make teachers out of all of “em!
