Now he wants Bush to invade the Philippines, or something.

It's hard out here for a chimp: The whole world hates Bush's war

I saw yesterday that Focus on the Family was okay with this guy's execution, too.

I saw yesterday that Jerry Falwell laughed hard at this

I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said "Stop! don't do it!"

"Why shouldn't I?" he said.

I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!"

He said, "Like what?"

I said, "Well...are you religious or atheist?"

He said, "Religious."

I said, "Me too! Are you christian or buddhist?"

He said, "Christian."

I said, "Me too! Are you catholic or protestant?"

He said, "Protestant."

I said, "Me too! Are you episcopalian or baptist?"

He said, "Baptist!"

I said,"Wow! Me too! Are you baptist church of god or baptist church of the lord?"

He said, "Baptist church of god!"

I said, "Me too! Are you original baptist church of god, or are you reformed baptist church of god?"

He said,"Reformed Baptist church of god!"

I said, "Me too! Are you reformed baptist church of god, reformation of 1879, or reformed baptist church of god, reformation of 1915?"

He said, "Reformed baptist church of god, reformation of 1915!"

I said, "Die, heretic scum", and pushed him off.

Falwell, Robertson, Dobson and Perkins want old people to just hurry up and die

Click picture to enlarge.

Theofascists began their war on the Constitution over 25 years ago

I remember being called a "secular humanist" in the early '80s because I taught in public schools. Now, being a known librul, I should have been at the top of their recruitment list. But I never heard from--or of--any secular humanists who were trying to pollute children's minds, yadda yadda. Why didn't they recruit me? I wouldn't have joined, but I have to think they'd have tried. Why didn't they recruit me? Because there was no secular humanist movement. There were no secular humanists. Falwell and other liars made it all up, just like the mythical War on Christmas.

American Family Association says it's okay to believe untruths if it leads you to hate queers and libruls

More people (39%) still believe Saddam was in on 9-11 than believe Bush is fit to be president (33%).

Southern Baptists approve of annual gas price-gouging orgy

What would they say if a queer owned a gas station? How many queers own gas stations? Are the Baptists finding out so they can stop them? Are they letting queers get away with overcharging krixtains for gas?

Four Big Bangs for the price of one: Science=1, pro-ignorance theofascism=0

Falwell's, Robertson's, Dobson's and Perkins' heads explode as "Big Bang Theory" is proven once and for all. But they'll ignore this as they ignore all other actual information, continue "preaching" that the Earth is only 6000 years old, and that Adam and Eve rode vegetarian T-rexes to church. In other words, they want you to be ignorant and believe only theoscience, theohistory and theomath, all of which they made up out of thin air.

James Dobson approves of more lies, smears from Coultergeist

Has he ever told her to stop?

Summary: Ann Coulter described The New York Times' coverage of the arrest of President Bush's former domestic policy adviser, Claude A. Allen, as the "revenge of the queers," a reference to a comment Allen made in 1984 describing a political opponent of his then-employer, Sen. Jesse Helms (R-NC), as linked to "queers." Coulter also falsely claimed that "the most highly placed black in the Clinton administration was his secretary, Betty Currie"; in fact, six former Clinton cabinet officials are African-American.

Theofascists oppose abortion because it reduces cheap labor

Better for Americans to live below the poverty level than aliens.

Democrats have been buzzing about comments made by state Sen. Nancy Schaefer (R-Turnerville) at a recent eggs-and-issues breakfast in Hart County. We quote from the Hartwell Sun newspaper: "Commenting on illegal immigration, Schaefer said 50 million abortions have been performed in this country, causing a shortage of cheap American labor. 'We could have used those people,' she said." (Scroll down when you get there.)

Falwell approves: Republicans love pornstar Mary Carey

Robertson, Dobson also say it's okay that more drunk republicans "hit on" her than do her porn fans in Vegas.

Truthiness goes to war: In "largest air assault since 2003," not one shot was fired

It's bad enough that Bush lies to us this way. It's much worse that the worthlesscorporatemedia help him.

But contrary to what many many television networks erroneously reported, the operation was by no means the largest use of airpower since the start of the war. ("Air Assault" is a military term that refers specifically to transporting troops into an area.) In fact, there were no airstrikes and no leading insurgents were nabbed in an operation that some skeptical military analysts described as little more than a photo op. What’s more, there were no shots fired at all and the units had met no resistance, said the U.S. and Iraqi commanders.

The eagle soars again: Former theofascist AG Ashcroft becomes latest corporate whore to help his pimps steal even more of our money

It's hard out there for a corporate pimp. They need all the krixtains they can get in order to steal every last penny in the Treasury.

Yes, he prides himself on his integrity...if by, "integrity," he means, "All tax money belongs to corporations."

Jesus wept: Theofascists invite people who use Jewish words to help them stop "War on Christians"

But can they win this war without using Jewish words? Are Jewish names like Ruth or Samuel or Paul okay so long as they don't say Jewish words like "schlepp" or "schtick?"

"The War on Christians" conference is coming to D.C., featuring a modified-A-list of conservative heavyweights organized by Vision America, including Alan Keyes, Gary Bauer, Sen. John Cornyn, Phyllis Schlafly, Sen. Sam Brownback and Rep. Tom DeLay, as well as some Jews -- the latter apparently such a newsworthy addition that it warranted its own press release: "Jews Confront the War on Christians." Other target-specific panels will include "The News Media: Megaphone For Anti-Faith Values," "The Judiciary: Overruling God," and "The Gay Agenda: America Won't Be Happy."

And so it starts: Irish queers not good enough for St. Patrick's Day celebration of alcoholism, poverty and wife abuse

Faith, and did they use Jewish words? Saints be praised, ye did a good job o' keepin' 'em out, laddybuck.

NEW YORK - The chairman of the nation's biggest St. Patrick's Day Parade marched Friday while sidestepping questions about remarks comparing gay Irish-American activists to neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan and prostitutes.

"Today is St. Patrick's Day. We celebrate our faith and heritage. Everything else is secondary," said the chairman, John Dunleavy, who wore a sash of the Irish colors.

Dunleavy was blasted by the City Council's first openly gay leader for the remarks, which appeared in The Irish Times on Thursday.

He told the newspaper, "If an Israeli group wants to march in New York, do you allow Neo-Nazis into their parade? If African Americans are marching in Harlem, do they have to let the Ku Klux Klan into their parade?"

About the Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization, Dunleavy said, "People have rights. If we let the ILGO in, is it the Irish Prostitute Association next?"

Sure, and I saw yesterday that such attitudes come from Catholic upbringing. And are ye rememberin' when good Protestant folk were afraid that JFK, God rest 'im, would ignore the Constitution and follow the pope's orders instead?

Theofascists to GOP: "See to it that Amerika is feudal theocracy by mid-terms"

The transformation from constitutional democracy to theocratic police state must be completed by the time patriots have the chance to vote all the lying, corrupt, chickehawk fascists out of Congress.

Oh, and don't use Jewish words.

He's such a strong, krixtain witness for our troops whom he supports with all his heart and soul, if not funding. He's such a strong moral leader. He will be remembered for creating a kompassionate kancervative krixtain atmosphere not only here in Amerika, but in every country he conquers for Jesus.

REVEALED: Jesus said it's okay to lie about people you don't like as long as you don't use Jewish words

I saw yesterday where the average theofascist televangelist is a liar. But then, I've known that for over 30 years.

What if we organized a bus tour of theofascist private schools, and made them come out and listen to lectures about the Constitution and science? I'd promise we wouldn't use any Jewish words. Or Jewish names. Especially not these Jewish names from the King James Bible.

Northrop Grumman, one of the nation’s largest and best-known defense firms, announced Wednesday that Myers, an Air Force veteran and former fighter pilot, has joined its board of directors.

As one of 11 “non-employee” directors, Myers will earn $200,000 a year, according to a company spokesman. Half of that sum is paid to the company’s 12 directors in stock.

In exchange for his 200K, Myers will have to attend “eight scheduled board meetings this year, two of which are conducted by phone.

Republicans are so scared of having a legitimate debate about Iraq or national security that they have only one reaction to news of their failures or calls for accountability.

On Monday, Democratic Senator Russ Feingold introduced legislation to censure the President for breaking the law by creating a secret domestic spying program. Agree or disagree with his proposal, as a Senator -- and as an American -- he has the right to speak his mind and express his views without Republican Senators questioning his patriotism.

But that's exactly what happened. This week Republican Senator Wayne Allard of Colorado, in an interview with Fox News radio, said in response to Feingold's action that he has "time and time again [sided] with the terrorists".

Theofascists threatened Ginsburg, O'Connor with death

In Bush's Amerika: "The problem isn't the problem. The one who TELLS you about the problem is the problem."

In other words, kill the messenger, and there will be no news to upset good kompassionate kancervative krixtains's delicate sensibilities.

If we ignore what teenagers do, they're not doing it.

WASHINGTON - The government proposed a record fine of $3.6 million against dozens of CBS stations and affiliates Wednesday in a crackdown on what regulators called indecent television programming.

The Federal Communications Commission said a network program, "Without a Trace," that aired in December 2004 was indecent. It cited the graphic depiction of "teenage boys and girls participating in a sexual orgy."

"It's just a @$%&% piece of paper!" Bush signs bill--that wasn't passed--into "law"

Representative Henry Waxman (D-CA) has alleged in a letter to White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card that President Bush signed a version of the Budget Reconciliation Act that, in effect, did not pass the House of Representatives.

Further, Waxman says there is reason to believe that the Speaker of the House called President Bush before he signed the law, and alerted him that the version he was about to sign differed from the one that actually passed the House. If true, this would put the President in willful violation of the U.S. Constitution.

DeptHomeSec becomes de facto Dept. of Education

Colleges must fight terists to receive federal funding.

Last year's federal budget includes more than $4 billion for homeland security research and development. The Department of Homeland Security is offering $64 million directly to colleges and universities that will develop anti-terrorism programs. Community colleges depend primarily on states for their funding, but states get part of their funds from the federal government. For community colleges, the "Strengthening Institutions Program" --Title III-A of the Higher Education Act -- provides funds to institutions that have few resources and serve high proportions of low-income students and "historically underrepresented" populations.

But institutions must compete for money from the program, which currently totals $81.3 million. Proposed legislation in Congress would allow for-profit schools to compete with nonprofit community colleges for these and other dollars, including those coming through the federal Pell Grant and student loan programs. As a result, community colleges are scrambling for a way to stay afloat.

Who are the Council for National Policy, and why don't they want you to know they exist?

Theofascists formed this club 25 years ago. Their goal is simple: Turn America into a feudal theocracy.

When a top U.S. senator receives a major award from a national advocacy organization, it’s standard procedure for both the politician and the group to eagerly tell as many people about it as possible.

Press releases spew from fax machines and e-mails clog reporters’ in-boxes. The news media are summoned in the hope that favorable stories will appear in the newspapers, on radio and on television.

It was odd, therefore, that when U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) accepted a “Thomas Jefferson Award” from a national group at the Plaza Hotel in New York City in August, the media weren’t notified. In fact, they weren’t welcome to attend.

“The media should not know when or where we meet or who takes part in our programs, before or after a meeting,” reads one of the cardinal rules of the organization that honored Frist.

The membership list of this group is “strictly confidential.” Guests can attend only with the unanimous approval of the organization’s executive committee. The group’s leadership is so secretive that members are told not to refer to it by name in e-mail messages. Anyone who breaks the rules can be tossed out.

What is this group, and why is it so determined to avoid the public spotlight?

Brokeback To The Future Mountain: The Theofascist Years

It's a prequel.

Krixtain cowboys mourn only men who died on 9-11. Krixtain bull gores dummy with Clinton mask. Better ignorant and violent than gay.

EXCERPTS

Finally, the show gets underway. Strauss' "Also Sprach Zarathustra," also known as the theme to 2001: A Space Odyssey, plays and pyrotechnics spray from the fences. People carrying flags ride their horses in a circle while the speakers play "How Great Thou Art" and "The Battle Hymn of the Republic." The announcer talks about the American flag and Sept. 11. He says, thank God we have a president who will make sure that terrorism "will never happen again."

Without seeming to take a breath, the announcer begins to pray. This conflation of God and Country seemed to be the driving force of the whole program. Standing under a Budweiser banner, the announcer prays for the cowboys and the rodeo clown who were maimed during the past two days' events. He also asks for God to put his hand on the assembled audience, to make us all "healthier" and better Christians by the time we leave. The spiel continues and I catch "... before we meet you in that big arena in the sky, oh Lord. ..."

After a couple more events and another clown shtick, the lights go off and a woman comes out dressed head to toe in white cowgear. Four crosses are placed in the dirt, and the announcer begins "a tribute to all of the victims of Sept. 11." The woman places a fireman's hat on one cross, then a stethoscope, a policeman's hat and a flag on the others. The announcer dedicates the flag to "all the husbands, dads, grandparents, and children" who died, with no mention that women were killed.

A prerecorded monologue begins with "Silent Night" in the background. It is a first-person Sept. 11 story, but right away I can tell where it's going. "I was there on the 101st Floor with a man who was calling his wife to say goodbye. I held his fingers steady as he dialed." The story builds with the Jesus voice describing how he was there for everyone. "Some chose for the final time to ignore me," it says, "but I was there. ... " And finally, "I will be in the stairwell of your final moments." Wherever Jesus is, I think to myself, I hope this is pissing him off.

The two riders come back with flags as "Glory, Glory, Hallelujah" plays again and the announcer tells everyone to stand up and sing along. A smell of fries mingles with the horse poop smell and I want to be sick.

Suddenly the techno music and pyrotechnics return, and a bull is let loose. He cuts a fine figure against the spraying lights. Bucking bulls are the ultimate rodeo event, but like a roller coaster ride, it's short and a little anticlimactic.

How do we repair America when Bush leaves...if he ever leaves?

Assuming he doesn't declare himself fuehrer-for-life, which I believe he wants to do*, there are many viable, if complex, legal options for returning America to a constitutional democracy. (*Less likely now than a year ago, due to spreading understanding of just how evil he really is.)

Bush sends nation into panic over bird flu

Since Chimpy has managed to make people afraid of everybody and everything, and both the worthlesscorporatemedia and uselesslocalmedia have jumped onto the panic bandwagon, I'm forced to weigh in on the issue of stockpiling food.

WHY STOCKPILE FOOD?
1. Will a bird flu epidemic cause food shortages? Maybe, but only because food manufacturers will do what oil companies did after Katrina: Screw us. The most likely scenario is that they'll claim supply and/or personnel shortages on their end, create temporary--and contrived--delivery shortages on our end, thereby giving them reason to justify price-gouging.

2. Are "experts" already telling us to hoard food, "just in case?" Yes, because when the end comes, we're to "stay home" and minimize the risk of infection. Problem is, they don't tell us how people who work and/or have kids in school can "stay home" for more than a long weekend, or two. So before you build a bomb shelter or cocoon your house in Saran Wrap, THINK IT THROUGH.

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT STOCKPILING FOOD

1. Most prepackaged food has an expiration date. So if you fill your linen closet with canned goods, do it weekly, not in one fell swoop. Put each new addition in the back--like they do with milk at the store--pushing older cans up front. Use up older items in front with normal meal preparation, leaving newer ones in back. This way, when you realize the panic was more of Bush's
fearmongering, you won't be stuck with things that'll spoil before you can use them.

2. Untreated tap water doesn't keep. Bacteria start growing almost
immediately. Even bottled water has an expiration date. So if you must fill those empty milk jugs and coke bottles with water, keep only a few, and use that water only for washing or watering plants. Instead of bottled water, get a portable water filter. Google for them, and you'll find many, including "camper filters" and "camper straws." Another option is to get something like
a Brita pitcher or a filter that screws onto the kitchen faucet. These are great, end of the world, or no, since (A) you should only drink filtered water, and (B) your coffee, tea, soups and gravies will taste dramatically better. Plus, filtered water costs a few pennies a gallon, bottled water is a dollar a quart.

3. Dried food makes the best survival rations. Beans and rice can be stored for years. Get two or three SMALL BAGS of your favorite beans and two or three SMALL BAGS of your favorite rice. NOT WHITE RICE. Most white rice has no nutritional value, so read the labels. I like red beans and rice, and pinto beans and rice. I heartily recommend a Spanish rice, Canilla, since it's healthy and flavorful. Even better is Golden Canilla (Canilla Dorado), if you
can find it. Look in Mexican restaurants and grocerias. However politically incorrect this may seem, look at rices found at "Middle Eastern" markets. I can't remember the name, but there's a long-grained rice, meant to be served dry and at room temperature, that's the most delicious rice I've ever eaten. I
need to find out the name and get some for myself. If you're not an experienced outdoor cook, look at all the "minute rice" meals. They come in small boxes or pouches, are pre-seasoned, and cook up simply and quickly, even over a campfire.

4. Don't forget bread. Corn meal doesn't expire.. In a pinch,
you can make hot water "hoe cakes" anywhere. Besides, corn bread and beans should be supper in any home once a week. Remember to add a little sugar if you cook pinto beans separately from the rice.

5. Get salt. Makes bland food better. Plus, you need salt.

6. Hot sauce. Also makes bland food better. Even the makers of those wretched MREs our poor kids eat in Iraq know this. Most pouches come with a little bottle of generic "Louisiana red sauce." GIs will fight over a bottle of the stuff to make their miserable field rations tolerable. Get your favorite hot sauce in big bottles. Being salt and vinegar, it'll last forever.

7. Potatoes. They don't last forever, but they do last for a while. Sliced thin, they boil or fry quickly, and are filling. Maybe a box of instant potatoes. Might as well get some onions. They seem to last forever if you just want to cook with them.

8. Canned juice. Be aware of expiration dates.

9. Jerky. Lots of options, if you like the stuff. Read expiration dates. Be careful about buying ham hock for beans. Yes, it's salted, but even that doesn't last forever, especially unrefrigerated.

10. Dried fruit. Read expiration dates. Also for canned fruit.

11. Canned vegetables. Lots of salt and preservatives, less nutrition than fresh, but okay for a while. Put new stock in back.

12. Canned meat. Tuna, chicken, pork, hashes, stews and soups. Again, extra salt and preservatives. Think it through.

13. Powdered milk. Who would drink the vile stuff who didn't absolutely have to? Remember, it's mostly sugar.

14. First Aid kit. You should have more in the house (and car, for that matter) than just Band Aids and rubbing alcohol, anyway, so this is a wise investment. Neosporin, Aspirin, Bufferin, Tylenol, Ibuprofen (generic equivalents are always cheaper). Each works differently on people. Get small bottles. They expire, so be aware. So does Liquid Bandage. Alcohol wipes, baby wipes, tape, gauze (roll and pads). Feminine napkins make the best bandages. Medics have used them since Vietnam. Peroxide. Mouthwash. Corn
starch for a "dry shampoo," and for baby powder and foot powder. They're corn starch already, plus deodorants, so save money. Also good for gravy.

THE WORLD IS NOT COMING TO AN END. Even if it were, a basement full of food won't do you any good if you can't protect it.

Don't forget some of these.

JUST FOR FUN Remember that "magic bullet" from 1963?

It was the only bullet ever made that could do what it did.

The Warren Commission's "single bullet," according to all documentation:

--had no thread striations (fine lines etched onto a copper encased bullet tip and/or bullet side casing by clothing threads when the bullet first penetrates clothing threads),
--was marked with no blood,
--was marked with no human tissue,
--had no pieces of clothing attached,
--had lost only 1.5% of its original average weight.

Must have been the earliest bullet made of ultra-hard Depleted Uranium in order for it to do so much damage without sustaining any itself. Any other bullet would have broken into several pieces, especially a long, round-nosed one travelling at no more than 1850 feet per second. (For comparison, my beloved M-1 carbine fires a far shorter bullet at 1950 fps. I've recovered some from a few inches of dirt that were nowhere near pristine.)

Kentucky nullifies US Constitution, secedes from Union

Ten Commandments will be posted in schools, other places. The governor is a Baptist "minister." They're demanding another civil war. The purpose of this--and all similar bills--is to identify and demonize its opponents.

The Ten Commandments could be posted in schools and government buildings and a large monument with the biblical directives would be placed outside the Capitol under legislation awaiting the signature of Gov. Ernie Fletcher, an ordained Baptist minister. "The governor looks forward to signing this bill," said Brett Hall, spokesman for the Republican governor who is currently in the hospital where he is being treated for a blood clot. . . The measure passed without debate in the House on Friday in a 90-5 vote, and drew immediate criticism from the American Civil Liberty Union of Kentucky. House Speaker Jody Richards, D-Bowling Green, said he believes the measure is constitutional because the commandments would be part of displays with other historical documents

WHY YOU MAY NOT WANT THE TEN COMMANDMENTS POSTED AT YOUR PUBLIC SCHOOL OR STATE CAPITOL

The Michigan House of Representatives has passed a resolution seeking to have the Ten Commandments displayed in or around the State Capitol. State Representative Casperson sees this as an important way to restore "a moral compass to our society." Rep. Gosselin calls the Commandments the "bedrock of Michigan law," while Rep. Hoogendyk calls them "the foundation for the freedoms we hold dear." None of these assertions is valid.

The First Commandment begins, "I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt." Many of our citizens are Moslems, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Taoists, Shintoists, Jains, Confucians, and adherents of Native American religions. . .

The Second Commandment forbids making any "graven," or carved, image - or bowing down to one. Does the legislature wish to display this warning in front of the noble statue of Michigan's Civil War governor, Austin Blair? . . . The Second Commandment also threatens to visit "the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation." Should a child visiting the capital start to become fearful because long ago a great grandfather may have struck his thumb with a hammer and impulsively used the name of the Lord in vain? Does any American law seek to punish children, let along grandchildren and great grandchildren, for the sins of the fathers? . . .

The Fourth Commandment forbids any work on the Sabbath. Does the Legislature wish to reinstate "blue laws" that forbid working on Sunday (and presumably on Friday for Muslims and Saturday for Jews)? Does it wish to ban all shopping malls, golf courses, television stations, restaurants, football teams, backyard gardeners and flood harvesters from operating on the Sabbath?. . .

The Third forbids taking "the name of the Lord thy God in vain." Courts have held that the First Amendment's guarantee of free speech protects even blasphemy.

The Fifth enjoins us to "honor thy father and thy mother." Most parents deserve to be honored, though no law requires it. In 2003 the state found 26,700 Michigan children to have been victims of abuse or neglect. Are all of them required to honor their parents?

The Seventh says, "Thou shalt not commit adultery." This was the foundation for some laws in the past, but there have been no prosecutions for adultery for several decades. Has the practice disappeared in Michigan? If so, it has happened without the Commandments being posted in the state capitol.
The Tenth forbids coveting not only "thy neighbor's house" but also his wife, servants, ass and "anything that is thy neighbor's." Frank Loesser once enunciated a clear principle of American law - "Brother, you can't go to jail for what you're thinking." More important, isn't it a trifle quaint today to be listing a man's wife among his possessions? Consider too, that the "maid servant" in the Commandment was commonly a concubine - often purchased from her own father. . .

"Thou shalt not kill" is a powerful statement, but violation of eight of the Ten Commandments is subject to the death penalty. One is murder, still subject to the death penalty in many other states. But others are cursing one's parent, sacrificing for the wrong god, idolatry, adultery, blasphemy, working on the Sabbath, and bearing false witness. Would the Legislature ask us to emulate these archaic and brutal standards?

Gore cites Bush's "false impressions"

SAN FRANCISCO - In a unanimous decision against a division of the Boy Scouts, the California Supreme Court ruled Thursday that groups receiving government subsidies may be required to pledge compliance with anti-bias policies - including those that protect atheists and homosexuals.
The decision, handed down against the Berkeley Sea Scouts, was a blow to the national Scouting organization, which in past landmark rulings had been assured the legal right to exclude boys who are gay or don't believe in God.

Thursday's ruling did not take away that right. But it allowed local governments to make bias costly - in this case, by withdrawing free berthing privileges at the Berkeley municipal marina, worth thousands of dollars a year to the Scouting group.

Some governments across the country have begun withholding a variety of subsidies from Scouting organizations for failure to adhere to local anti-bias policies.

..........................
COLUMBIA, SC, Mar. 10 /Christian Wire Service/-- The most recent voice to call for the exodus of children from the public schools is the Christian radio talk show "Point of View, Dallas," Texas founded by the late Marlin Maddoux. During the entire week of March 6-10 the show has featured Marlin Maddoux's new book entitled PUBLIC EDUCATION AGAINST AMERICA with Kerby Anderson and Penna Dexter as co-hosts. This program has a loyal audience and the potential to reach several million Christians.

Bruce Shortt, Exodus Mandate Board member and author of THE HARSH TRUTH ABOUT PUBLIC SCHOOLS, commented on this important development: "Marlin Maddoux virtually pioneered Christian talk radio, founded the USA Radio network, cultivated a new generation of gifted radio personalities as Kerby Anderson and Penna Dexter, wrote several books and gave a radio voice to a Christian worldview for over 30 years. Yet, even in poor health at the end of his life, his commitment to Christianity and the family did not let him slacken his kingdom work. The result is the final piece of the Marlin Maddoux legacy: PUBLIC EDUCATION AGAINST AMERICA."

According to E. Ray Moore, Jr, Director of Exodusmandate.org and also a guest on "Point of View" on March 9, "The publication of Marlin's new book and the clarion call by "Point of View" for Christian families and churches to take up one of the K-12 Christian education options, either Christian day schools or home schooling, is a another watershed event. We believe this moment will be pivotal in the on-going effort by ministries, organizations, churches and pastors to provide children with a thoroughly Christian, Bible-based K-12 Christian education experience."

Warren Kelly, "Point of View" President and Marlin Maddoux's son-in-law, on March 6, the first day of the special one week feature on Marlin's book said: "Many other Christian organizations and ministries across the nation are now coming to the same conclusion as "Point of View", that it is time to get the children out of public schools and into Christian education."

"Point of View" by issuing such a clear call to the American Christian community has joined with the voice of Cal Thomas, one of USA's top newspaper columnists, who urged the religious community to exit the state run public schools in his 12/16/05 and 12/27/05 nationally syndicated columns. Also, John Stossel on Jan. 13, on ABC's 20/20 issued a similar warning of the danger that the monopolistic public school system represented to the future and well being of the American nation.

Further Moore said, "It may take 5 to 7 more years to wash and scrub dependency on the public schools out of the Christian community, but real progress is being made. We are turning a corner."

SUNDAY GUN BLOGGING My next self-defense tool: Colt XM-177 Commando

The NRA calls this a "homeland security weapon." I think of it as a "homestead security weapon."

(Click headline for previous post.)

I've decided to promote myself. I've been the proud owner of several excellent M-1 carbines over the past 20 years, and have always considered myself well-armed. (Not specifically because of the carbine, I am known in some circles as, "The Heavily-armed Librul.) But after much soul-searching, it's time to bite the bullet, if you will, and get an AR-15 variant.

My choice is a semi-auto Colt XM-177 Commando. I will build it with a little help from a gunsmith friend.

I settled on the Commando because, of the myriad M16/AR15 variants I've shot (including the one Uncle Sugar lent me 35 years ago), it's the only one I ever lusted after. Mine will be semi-auto carbine because it will cost around $1400, including registering as a "Short-barrelled Rifle" (SBR in BATFE lingo). I've shot a buddy's real Commando (select-fire, technically a submachine gun), and it's the cat's meow. He offered to sell it to me, but lacking the necessary $25,000 for a real one, I'll just build a semi-auto carbine.

Quickly, for the record, the picture is of an Airsoft variant. I use it because it's the best picture I found of an actual XM177. I found many good pictures of the later model, the XM177-E2, but that's not the one I'm building.

Why move up the the Commando? It's the same size and weight as my beloved .30 carbine, but the Commando's 5.56mm round is more potent. Also, when we head to the woods and have to forage, spare parts, ammo and magazines for M16/AR15 variants will be plentiful.

The best news is, improved bolts and buffers, and a couple of other tidbits, are finally available. This means a "shorty" can be truly reliable, at long last. The shortened barrel and gas system have been problematic for decades. No more.

The only downside is, the Commando will be...how can I put this? Horrendously loud. The military variants' "stovepipe" on the end of the muzzle is a sound suppressor. And since people don't wear hearing protection in combat, the suppressor is necessary. I could get one of those, but it'd be expensive, and I don't really need it. I'll just get higher quality shooter's "earmuffs," and warn my shooting buddies that there's going to be, "Fire in the hole!" After that, they're on their own.
