While an improvement over the past, it seems Google's recognition of a patriotic commemoration is still only half hearted. The flag & yellow ribbon for Memorial Day are placed towards the bottom of the screen whereas for less auspicious celebrations such as the discovery of a fossil allegedly supposing to be a "missing link" or the anniversary of Pac Man, the company is willing to mutilate its logo entirely.

The DC city council passed a tax on soda and sweet drinks.
This municipal body believes it is the place of government to manipulate citizens into choices that authorities conclude optimize health.
Yet this very same government provides free condoms to decadent youth because, it is argued, it is not the place of bureaucrats to make value judgments what people do with their own bodies.
These prophylactics will no doubt be financed in part through proceeds collected through the soda tax.
Life has certainly gotten more logical and consistent since giving God and the Ten Commandments the legal system's equivalent of the middle finger.

I'd like to know what other shape we are suppose to use to get roofs over our heads.
No matter how large that religious circus tent of McLaren's in Burtonsville, Maryland might be, it is still basically in the form of some kind of box.
Much of the purpose of the Emergent Church is to deride so-called "middle class values" and to undermine America's traditional Judeo-Christian culture (or in other words, minding your own business and providing for oneself as empowered by God).
Perhaps someone ought to point out that McLaren's understanding of nature reeks of the bourgeoisie naivety he and his leftist cohorts spend so much of their time criticizing.
To McLaren, nature consists of the beauty of this annual sunflower and the run off pond he stocks with fish that he mentions in the podcast.
Both of these acts, by the way, go against nature left in a pristine state since the sunflower mentioned is deliberately planted by a human being and the fish are not going to slither by themselves into what sounds like a landlocked pond.
If it were not for the contrived boxes McLaren seems to loathe and the technology making such comfort possible, I doubt he would find nature to be all that amicable as he would otherwise be subjected to extremes of heat and cold that would make life unbearable and likely even unlivable.

The presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church Katherine Schori came to a Maryland suburb outside of Washington, DC to bless the denomination's increasing Hispanic numbers.
Are similar plans being made to brownnose the remaining Caucasian members as well?
The racial pandering was justified on the grounds that Episcopalian membership is increasing only in its immigrant congregations.
However, once these also have their resistance worn down and brainwashed into accepting the ecclesiological pathologies plaguing the Modernistic branches of the Anglican communion such as the widespread acceptance of homosexuality, the overall emasculation of the faith through the introduction of less than feminine leftist female clergy, and the outright denial of foundational Christian doctrines such as the Resurrection and even the existence of God, it won't be long until attendance at these now vibrant parishes begin to collapse as well.

Then again, maybe if they actually worked for a living, they'd be too tired at the end of the day to do much whoring.

When this confession is coupled with the revelation that members of Congress failed to read the healthcare bill despite that legislation's potential to revolutionize nearly all of America's economic and political system, it makes the concerned citizen cringe.
Many of the regulations being imposed upon the people of the United States in terms of tyrannical policies may not even be known about before it is too late.
But even more importantly, the actions taken by government officials wallowing in their own ignorance on any wide array of political and legal matters might not even be authorized by any properly promulgated law if this failure to read actual statutes is as widespread as we are now being led to believe.

A Washington Post article claims that for security purposes, the waiters for the White House state dinner have their social security numbers checked almost daily. If so, how come Arizona officials can't assess the ID's of those there the police come into contact with for the purposes of protecting citizens and legitimate residents?

If we are to do justice to both the victims of this scumbag and history, it must also be remembered that the sniper also subscribed to a form of radical Islam.
Will a report also be broadcast to the aspect of his personality that liberal elites would rather sweep under the rug?

Miss Oklahoma was booed when she gave the "incorrect" answer to a question as to what she thought of the Arizona immigration law.
As a result, Miss Michigan won the pageant.
The winner herself is an immigrant of Lebanese Islamic origins whose kin are no doubt proud she has achieved notoriety for acting like a Western harlot as she previously won accolades for her acumen with the stripper pole.

Given that Chicago is perennially going to hell in a handbasket because of its high crime rate and the city's legendary corruption of municipal authorities, you'd think these clergymen would be too busy to comment on affairs taking place halfway across the country.
Perhaps conservative pastors in Arizona with virtually no connections to Chicago whatsoever should hand down as a group their own lengthy proclamation as to what they perceive as to the shortcomings of Obama's adopted hometown.

A fuss is being made over the abandoned boyhood home of Mitt Romney being torn down. Any other time the power of government to snatch homes from people is heralded as a wonderful sign of progress and anyone thinking otherwise had better remain silent or they will be labeled as one of those "Tea Party Terrorists"

If George Bush is to be derided as an intellectual lightweight because of his rumored aversion to dense lengthy tomes, isn't Erick Holder even more of a mental nit for failing to read the Arizona immigration law despite proceeding to make pronouncements on it in an almost ex-cathedra fashion as America’s highest practicing barrister?
Can you imagine in the 1940's what a mess this country would be in if its highest officials were unable to even enunciate how we were at war with Germany or Japan.
I bet these Obamaphiles have no problem about saying things against White folks, Christianity, and the Tea Party movement.

Contrary to Pope Pelosi, the Gospel is about Jesus as the only Begotten Son Of God dieing for our sins and rising from the dead so that we might have eternal life in Heaven. It says very little about immigration and more about complying with the law through the doctrine of rendering to Caesar.

According to Keeley, all of German life (including the minutest detail of one's personal life) was brought under Nazi control through the policy of Gleichschaltung or coordination) so that all of society and culture reflected National Socialism (9). As such, the 1936 Law Concerning The Hitler Youth decreed that all of German youth were to be incorporated under the banner of this organization.
Most Americans would probably marvel how all these things unfolded in Germany and take comfort thinking the same ssort of thing could not happen in the United States. However, then reading “Life In The Hitler Youth”, one comes away with an uneasiness in the pit of the stomach when one realizes the similarities of the philosophies justifying a number of the programs in Nazi Germany and the United States of America.
Many will be outraged by such a statement. And though the United States is nothing like Nazi Germany in terms of destroying innocent human lives (at least in regards of those making it out of the womb without being hacked to pieces), if Americans do not now get a hold of certain ideological trends festering below the surface of public policy, the nation could very easily find it self sliding in this kind of downward direction.
In both the Nazi and secular progressiveist systems, it is not so much the individual created in the image of God protected by a set of unchanging eternal laws that matters but rather the larger group that counts. For as much as the word “community” is used in “Life In The Hitler Youth”, one could end up thinking one was reading the press releases of the national service proposals of either the Democratic or Republican parties. For example, the 1936 Law Concerning The Hitler Youth read in part, "The whole of German youth is to be educated, outside the parental home and school, in the Hitler Youth physically, intellectually, and morally in the spirit of National Socialism for service to the nation and community (16).”
Often, justification for the Hitler Youth was couched in language that would not be al that foreign to our own ears. As evidenced in one of Hitler’s speeches: “learn...that life for you must mean sacrifice, sacrifice of your personal freedom, sacrifice of your free time, sacrifice of many of the small pleasures of life; sacrifices when you take on yourself charges, not for the individual, not for yourself alone...but for your small, and yet so great community (39).” Ladies and gentleman, have we not heard as of late the word “sacrifice” on the lips of another aspiring demagogue that has irrationally mesmerized the dupable masses?
Sophisticates will groan that Hitler Youth programs were compulsory while Obama’s are voluntary (at least for now anyway). Eventually, it was indeed compulsory to join the Hitler Youth; however, the communalist rhetoric justifying such is worthy of Amitai Etzioni.
In much the same way the national service proposals brought before Congress and the American people claim to be voluntary, some of the service required of German youth was not explicitly obligatory but mandated anyway. Keeley writes,
“To teach Hitler Youth the importance of their Volk community, the National Socialists suggested members participate in a form of land service. Although not obligated to do so by any mandate or decree, every year young people ... were expected to help the Volk community...This was designed to teach young people about putting the needs of the community before their own (40).”
The objective of such programs --- be they either in a dictatorship or even in a representative democracy --- is ultimately to undermine the loyalty of its participants in regards to other authorities such as family or religion and to replace it with an absolute fealty to the organs of the state. In pursuit of this goal, a number of policies were implemented to get the young away from what would likely have been moderating and counterbalancing influences.
Though always of maniacal intentions, the first phase of this program was seemingly innocuous enough as it consisted of scheduling so many activities and meetings that the good Nazi family had to take part in that they were basically kept running around, away from one another, and unable to reflect more critically about what they were being lured into. This wasn't really all that much different than what is going on in many of these Emergent and Purpose Driven megachurches these days where activities and meetings are scheduled multiple nights per week and it is insinuated you are less than an ideal Christian if you only show up for the traditional scheduled Sunday and perhaps Wednesday services.
Those running afoul of National Socialist authorities underwent a process of scrutiny by the social service agencies of that day in a manner those under suspicions other than quantifiable physical abuse in our own time could relate to. Parents refusing to go along with the Hitler Youth agenda could have their children taken away on the grounds of being “politically unreliable” (the old term for politically incorrect). One might say such parents failed to have their children “properly socialized”, a term often invoked by those opposing home and private forms of education.
Common to all forms of socialism --- be they the Communist, Fascistic, or even more democratic and less blatantly homicidal varieties --- is the aspiration to so totally order the existences of those living under these systems that the state comes to take the place once reserved for God in the hearts of the people. Unlike Communism that was blatantly atheistic early on, the Nazis were a bit more sly in their manipulations to get Germans to unseat the Lord as the supreme authority in their hearts.
Keeley writes, “Finally, the Nazis attempted to replace Christianity with National Socialist ideology in the lives of youth. Some National Socialists expressed discontent with the so-called Jewish roots of Christianity...The Nazis began to remove symbols, such as the cross, from schools (57).” Sounds like a move straight out of the ACLU playbook.
An example of the extent to which the Nazis would go to accomplish this objective was epitomized by a prayer children were required to recite in order to receive a free school lunch (a form of welfare also prominent in our public schools today): “Fuehrer, my Fuehrer, bequeathed to me by the Lord, protect and preserve me as long as I live. Thou hast rescued Germany from deepest distress. I thank thee for my daily bread. Abideth thou long with me, forsaketh me not, Fuehrer my Fuehrer, my faith and my light. Heil mein Fuehrer (58).”
With President Obama regularly refusing to speak with the name of and images pertaining to Christ in the background in a manner similar to the way a vampire cringes before a cross and with Youtube videos of songs such as “Sanctuary” being applied to him that should only be applied to Jesus, it is only a few short steps until the word “Fuehrer” is replaced with “Barack” in that blasphemous invocation.
From her work as an historian in this particular publication, one cannot decipher the politics of Jennifer Keeley regarding the election and administration of Barack Obama. However, if allowed to speak for themselves, the facts and truths of history as chronicled in “Life In The Hitler Youth” serve as a warning no freedom loving American can afford to ignore.

According to Obama’s remarks on the nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, the purposes of the Justices is not to uphold the Constitution as established by the Founders but rather to be “more inclusive, more representative, more reflective of us as a people.”
Obama decress that everyone is responsible for education. Yet when parents get involved in the public school system they are reminded to defer to professional educators and often the attitutde is little better in Christian school with the added caveat of threats of Hellfire tacked on to silence those questioning things.

Any student walking out of class to join a protest march should be slapped with a truancy charge. And any student that does so that is not an U.S. citizen or whose parents are not U.S. citizens should be expelled from the public school system. Such pupils are not there for educational purposes but rather to foment cultural revolution & social upheaval.

Obama has favorably endorsed the linguistic alteration to the uniforms of the Phoenix Suns (and why didn't he go out of his way to mention what city the Spurs were from as well).
Is there any doubt that the level described above is the extent to which the President desires to intervene in our lives?
One would think that the country is so screwed up right now that Obama wouldn't have time to assume the role of the nation's chief fashion critic.

Given the blasphemous turn popular culture has taken in terms of the announced Comedy Central cartoon depicting the Lord as a slacker and the novel titled "The Goodman Jesus & The Scoundrel Christ", perhaps the debauched should take the time to thank God that Christians these days let a bit more depravity slide by than our Islamic counterparts.

For example, one pullout quote in red (no doubt playing on the conditioning that the red words in some Bibles carry more weight than the others) read, "If we are truly about family values, how can we argue for a system that separates parents from their citizen children." Notice how the onus is placed on America rather than the Mexican government for the responsibility of family reunification or cohesion.
Maybe our neighbors to the south should make it easier for children beyond its borders to be repatriated there with their parents. After all, the likes of James Dobson has in the past lectured Pat Buchanan how the family values of Mexicans are superior to those of the average American.
It is interesting how Sojourners, a publication that doesn't really give a hoot about the Word of God any other time given its modernistic and liberal affiliations, suddenly knows all of the verses admonishing the believer to aide the plight of the downtrodden. What about the verse extolling obedience to properly constituted laws (such as those administering the immigration process)?
Another column condemned the ethnocentrism of the American church and that "broadening immigration ... allows the church to pray and worship in a new way." Frankly, what was so wrong with the old way.
Perhaps it should be pointed out that so-called "minority churches" are the ones most mired in the respective ethnicities and cultures of those in attendance. Furthermore, special outreaches and semi-independent "sub-congregations" are not being set up by spineless American congregations for the purposes of preserving the traditional mainstream culture. Rather, these are established because the targeted immigrants are so reenforced these days as to what their particular breed of man happens to be that they won't set foot in a church unless the ecclesiastical authorities fawn all over them and cater to them to the same extent as the other social welfare bureaucracies they are accustomed to dealing with.
And when was the last time a minister ever admonished the new arrivals to make up their minds as to whether or not they want to be Americans or remain what they were originally and to go back from wherever they came. It is about time to stop playing both sides of the identity equation where one plays up what nationality that happens to get the largest government or charitable handout or which provides the most rational explanation for one's glaring flaws in terms of character and behavior.
But whereas nearly no one --- typically liberal but increasingly conservative as well --- will tackle the shortcomings of immigrants in regards to ecclesiastical practices and preferences, "Anglos" are being given an earful on this topic all of the time. At one church I stopped going to, after a snafu with the sound system, instead of simply adjusting the volume, the pastor went into a semi-lengthy explanation of how the controls had been fiddled with for the raucous auditory preferences of the immigrant congregation borrowing the facility the night before.
The verbal smackdown did not end there. We ignorant rubes learned it was our obligation to relent since the immigrant congregation, rather than the one actually floating the bills, was the one on the cutting edge and thus the “In thing”.
This was not the only incident of pandering to minorities at this particular church. Following the announcement of the district's ministerial candidates ordained last year, only the Hispanic ones were specifically mentioned in a commemorating prayer.
In previously solid churches slowly eroding to the spirit of the age, Whitey and anyone else speaking English is suppose to simply shut up and just keep dropping the coins into the collection plate until the gullible old White people die off. And you had better have a smile on your face with a "please sir, may I have another" attitude or you're not a good Christian anymore. Frankly, I don't remember national weakness being commanded anywhere in the pages of the Bible.
Others will insist that since the Bible in general and the Gospel in specific counsels that all who accept Christ belong to the family of God irrespective of nationality or ethnicity, congregations should avoid this characteristic to such an extent that congregations that once sat solemnly in the pews should now do back-flips over them and role around on the floor in testament to just how free of bias the parishioners happen to be. If Americans have to renounce their culture that is probably already about as heterogenous as a nation can be as countries with even lesser degrees of diversity are characterized by regular ethnic bloodshed, then why are Evangelicals putting up with La Razaesque front groups such as the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference having the motto “Empowering the Hispanic Church, Engaging the Hispanic Vision and Enriching the Hispanic Dream”.
In the mission statement on the masthead of Sojourners it reads, "The mission of Sojourners magazine is to inspire hope and action by articulating the biblical call to racial and social justice.” If this leftist rag is really concerned about justice, than they ought to publish another issue on immigration with a tattooed gang member on the cover and articles detailing how unbridled immigration has ruined many neighborhoods and the violence that has been inflicted on Americans either in their homes or through the many that have died in car crashes the result of foreigners that can’t even exercise the minutest degree of self-control when it comes to booze.

While it sounds good to strip the rights of citizenship from accused terrorists as Senator Liberman suggests, we should be very careful as to what is defined as terrorism. It must be remembered that just a few weeks ago media liberals were accusing Beck, Palin, and the Teapartiers of "sedition".

Proof once more that researchers are so stupid that common sense is portrayed as a stunning scientific discovery.
I could have told you this nearly 30 years ago.
Media often portrays it as the larger students picking on the smaller ones.
However, I can tell you of my experience even in a private Christian elementary school, the snottiest pissants were often the students smallest in stature and meeting the malnourished weight guidelines of the New World Order.
