Away for a few days

Doing the usual when I get some decent time off – a week which will go too quick of course. I’m heading off down South to spend time with my dear brother and sister in Christ, and their tribe. Man, am I ever looking forward to some good Bible studies and great fellowship.

If you think of it I’d appreciate prayers for travelling mercies.



72 Virgin(ian)s

I just about bust a gut laughing when I read this one…

After getting nailed by a Daisy Cutter, Osama bin Laden made his way to the pearly gates. There, he is greeted by George Washington. “How dare you attack the nation I helped conceive!” yells Mr. Washington, slapping Osama in the face.

Patrick Henry comes up from behind. “You wanted to end the Americans’ liberty, so they gave you death!” Henry punches Osama on the nose.

James Madison comes up next, and says “This is why I allowed the Federal government to provide for the common defense!” He drops a large weight on Osama’s knee.

Osama is subject to similar beatings from John Randolph of Roanoke, James Monroe, and 65 other people who have the same love for liberty and America.

As he writhes on the ground, Thomas Jefferson picks him up to hurl him back toward the gate where he is to be judged.

As Osama awaits his journey to his final very hot destination, he screams “This is not what I was promised!”

An angel replies “I told you there would be 72 Virginians waiting for you. What did you think I said?”

Cold, calculated barbarism for the sake of propaganda

From the Omega Letter, by Jack Kinsella – “Special Report: The Qana Incident”.


Americans awoke Sunday to images of angry Muslims storming the United Nations compound in Beirut in response to a devastating Israeli attack against the Lebanese village of Qana.
The carnage was horrible; at least sixty people died in the attack, forty of them children.

But on further examination, the carnage reveals a cold, calculating and ruthless strategy on behalf of Hezbollah. There was not a single male of fighting age among the victims. Where were all the males?
And, suppose that Israel had not dropped warning leaflets all over Qana. Let’s just suppose that nobody evacuated the city.
What are the odds in such a situation that EIGHTY PERCENT of the casualties would be children? Or that the remaining twenty percent would be exclusively women and old men?

What seems likely is that the women and children were herded into those shelters in an effort to sway public opinion over to their side.
In other words, they were deliberately put into harm’s way. The horrifying casualties were part of a deliberate Hezbollah plan.

Hezbollah knew that launching those rockets from Qana would result in Israeli destruction of the buildings from which they were launched.

But instead, the Qana casualties were all in the basement of the very building Hezbollah used as a launch point.
It is the only explanation that makes any logical sense. They put their own children there in the express hope that Israel would then kill them. In Allah’s name.

This is the kind of ghastly barbarity we’re up against – the barbarity that comes literally from the very pit of hell.

"Congratulations, Brave Muslim Warriors"

An excellent post from Hog On Ice.


“The left excoriates Israel constantly for its “brutality,” complaining that Israel kills civilians. Yes, Israel kills civilians. So does every country that engages in military action. Like all civilized (i.e. “non-Muslim”) nations, and to a greater degree than most, Israel strives to avoid civilian casualties, but they still happen. As a result of Muslim provocation, of course. No one bothers to point that out.”

“How can Muslims call themselves men when they support cowardly attacks on women and babies? How can they look Americans and Israelis in the eye, when we take such great pains to spare their non-combatants? What a bunch of pansies. No wonder they go through life screeching about how emasculated they feel. They are emasculated. They emasculate themselves every day by indulging their cowardice. We aren’t dealing with men. We’re dealing with a culture of little boys in men’s bodies. And when I say that, I realize I’m being unfair to little boys.”

I am the Lord

Tim Challies has written an excellent article here.

That simple powerful statement from the Lord actually says all that needs to be said.


‘What more could God say than “I am the Lord?” Nothing. God is Jehovah, the promise-keeping God. We can have confidence that God’s character and His name can never be separated. This was true for the Israelites and it is true for us today.’

The Guys Rules

My niece sent me this in an email. Thanks Liz.

The Guys’ Rules­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

Finally , the guys’ side of the story.

We always hear ” the rules “
From the female side.

Now here are the rules from the male side.

These are our rules!

Men are NOT mind readers.

Learn to work the toilet seat.
You’re a big girl. If it’s up, put it down.
We need it up, you need it down.
You don’t hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

Sunday sports. It’s like the full moon
or the changing of the tides.
Let it be.

Shopping is NOT a sport.
And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

Crying is blackmail.

Ask for what you want.
Let us be clear on this one:
Subtle hints do not work!
Strong hints do not work!
Obvious hints do not work!
Just say it!

Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That’s what we do.
Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

A headache that lasts for 17 months is a Problem.
See a doctor.

Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument.
In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 Days.

If you won’t dress like the Victoria ‘s Secret girls, don’t xpect us to act like soap opera guys.

If you think you’re fat, you probably are.
Don’t ask us.

If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one

You can ! either ask us to do something
Or tell us how you want it done.
Not both.
If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.

ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings.
Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

If it itches, it will be scratched.
We do that.

If we ask what is wrong and you say “nothing,” We will act like nothing’s wrong.
We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

If you ask a question you don’t want an answer to, Expect an answer you don’t want to hear.

When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine. Really .

Don’t ask us what we’re thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as SEX, CARS, the shotgun formation,

You have enough clothes.

You have too many shoes.

I am in shape. Round IS a shape!

Thank you for reading this.
Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight;
But did you know men really don’t mind that? It’s like camping.

Pass this to as many men as you can –
to give them a laugh.

Pass this to as many women as you can –
to give them a bigger laugh…
