Elgin , a great basketball town, has a new manufacturing company, which will certainly mean more jobs and growth. The town is right outside Lawton, Oklahoma, where Fort Sill Army Base is. It is on this battlefield that our soldiers learn to shoot artillery. The new manufacturing company in Elgin has a fat contract with The Pentagon to build a new canon. Canon? I thought the canon went the way of The Civil War! History!
We learned today that "liberals" read more books than "conservatives." The conservatives, though, seem to be spawning around right-wing Internet sites that agree with their brand of conservative thought. Challenge a right-winger on the Internet, and you will find your inbox filled with right-wing spam; the thing that will kill them, is that, just because their crap fills your inbox, you don't have to read it. If you read it, you don't have to respond to it. That alone, will drive them up a wall. And, though a right-winger will never admit that they are wrong, they all have blood pressure problems, when they are slammed with the truth. Try this.
"You should support the president in times of war! If you don't, then you are a treasonist!" they say as their eyes turn a squinted red, while their jaws and fists clinch. "We are at war!"
"No we are not!" you emphasize. "Only Congress can wage war and as of yet, they have not voted to declare war."
"If we were at war, we would be rationing gas, and Chrysler would be spending a big part of their time, up-armoring their jeeps, and other war vehicles. Yet, those vehicles are being up-armored at Fort Hood in Texas."
"Phew!" the right-winger spits.
Jesus is a Savior of peace! Peter was ready to do battle for Jesus, and Jesus asked him to put away his sword.
John 18:10-11 (Darby Translation)
10: Simon Peter therefore, having a sword, drew it, and smote the bondman of the high priest and cut off his right ear; and the bondman's name was Malchus.
11: Jesus therefore said to Peter, Put the sword into the sheath; the cup which the Father has given me, shall I not drink it?
There is no doubt that the right-wingers are flying with less than Biblically engineered wings, ... or a Biblical mind. You see, they read only the first chapter of Genesis.
Genesis 2: 14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Asshur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
Most Christians think that the Garden Of Eden was around Bethlehem. WOOPS! The above is specific, where it defines it in the Mesopotamia Valley, right where Bush has our soldiers fighting. It is the cradle of civilization. Baghdad Museum is still missing a dozen important antiquities because Bush was only interested in only serious guarding the oil buildings. Our bombs have wiped billions of dollars worth of antiquities.
19 Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field.
Woops! There are animals and birds yet to be found and named, not even mentioning insects. All the creatures in the water? Our oceans are less explored than the moon! Who knows what fish and "mammals" are hanging around the bottom of the ocean, never seen by human eyes.
15 But the LORD said to him, "Not so [e] ; if anyone kills Cain, he will suffer vengeance seven times over." Then the LORD put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him. 16 So Cain went out from the LORD's presence and lived in the land of Nod, [f] east of Eden.
