Spirit of Death Festival

H/T: Titus 1:9

QUESTION:  What do an Anglican (Church of England) cathedral and new age practice have in common?

When one adds fortune tellers, meditation experts, traditional healers and a fire-breathing vicar, one gets what Saul got when he visited the witch at Endor.

Saul wanted the spirit of Samuel not the Spirit of God.  God let him have it.

ANSWER:   Big Trouble.  With a capital "T"!

God will not tolerate us mocking His Name.  Somewhere, someday, somehow the CofE will pay for its sins. As we all must  Only Jesus can protect us sinners from the hands of a Angry God.  Just reading Edward's sermon makes my head, and my heart, hurt.

Let us not forget one simple fact:  Jesus paid it all.  Maybe the CofE Bishop of Manchester and his cronies will remember this before they've gone too far.

God Bless Ya'll !

The Difference Between a Dream and a Vision

H/T: Day By Day Cartoon

Yes, just exactly what is the difference 'tween a prophetic vision and a dream?

Well, for one thing, according to Scripture a prophesy must come true to be considered authentic.

Though sometimes prophecy is cautionary, such as Jonah got mixed up with.  Ya' know, shape up or ship out!

Today's DBD "prophecy" falls into that category.  We still, almost, have the time to shape up.

Our will we ship out?

Our Response to Japan's Current Disaster

H/T: YvonneT

Church member and friend YvonneT suggested I check out this video from Rick Joyner.  Frankly I've not paid much attention to Joyner before today.  But then, I didn't know he was concerned about disaster response, either.

Take a good listen, skip through the "intermission" and stay with it.  You'll find some gems buried in there!
PS:  I kinda like the way he ever-so-gently snipes at our current administration for their lack of leadership, clarity and truthfulness.

No Need for Long Haul Health & Welfare Traffic?


In the Amateur Radio Newsline™ Report 1754 – March 25 2011, published in today's QRZ.COM forums, Don Wilbanks AE5DW editorializes (at the very end of the broadcast) on communications lessons learned from the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
When one takes a step back and takes a look at the whole picture it’s easy to see and to hear why there are so few health and welfare messages being handled on the long haul ham radio bands. In the more populated areas, ham radio was replaced by Twitter and Facebook. In rural Japan there’s simply no way to get a message through.

Or to put it another way, as massive and devastating as this earthquake was, its communications needs outside Japan do not fit any of the traditional models that hams world wide are accustomed to dealing with. It also says that as long as a nation’s broadband infrastructure is not severely damaged, ham radios role as the long haul carrier of health and welfare traffic is being replace by a smart phone and an account on Facebook or Twitter.
The bottom line appears to be this. As long as a nation’s broadband infrastructure and its connections to the outside world are not severely damaged, and its population is communications savvy, the various social networks now provide a far faster way to pass health and welfare messaging than ham radio can ever hope to supply. But in those circumstances where there is no other means of long haul communications, ham radio will always have a significant role to play. (Emphasis added - Gene)
Got infrastructure?  Use it!  No infrastructure?  Use ham radio!  If you're a 'prepper, then why don't you get your ham radio license and master the skills now, while you can.  Check out this information from the ARRL.

Action Needed to Stop Federal Gun Ban

H/T: WorldNetDaily

Jeff Knox highlights action We the People can take right now.  I agree with him, the fix is in, but we need our combined voice heard on this issue.  Write, call, whatever.  Be respectful and literate! 
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, or ATF, is seeking public comment on their recent "study" on the importability of certain shotguns and, even though the comment process is just a formality that the bureaucrats fully intend to ignore, it is critical gun-rights supporters express their objections to this "study" and its pending implementation in no uncertain terms

How Far Can We Go?

I just finished a really good book from the local library.  While it is a novel, it made me question some of the things I've long believed about Christians and our place in our current society.  No, it wasn't deep on theology but it was deep enough to challenge a couple of my long-held assumptions.  I found it to be an enjoyable story that kept my interest from page one.

As I understand the book, Charles Colson and Ellen Vaughn's Gideon's Torch asks us to consider just what is the appropriate Christian response to unjust laws from a morally corrupt, unjust, and unresponsive, government?  Colson & Vaughn set up the characters as real, flawed people.  None of them are saints and none of them are demons.  At least not quite!  hehe

I came away with at least a couple of questions.  What does God say about:
  • What behavior, on my part, constitutes an appropriate Christian response to Holocaust-type actions by our government?
  • How much loyalty and service do I owe such a government?
  • Is choosing the lesser of two evils ever appropriate for us?
That's all I can deal with tonight!

What's Really Behind BHO's New Push for Gun Control?

H/T: Fox News

The elite in our nation, the ones that think they're smart enough to rule us, and BHO are at it again.  Barry wants to "tighten" up the "loose" gun laws in this control.  What part of twenty-thousand existing gun laws does he think need "tightening"?  The one that says "Thou shalt not kill"?  Oh, but he's the CinC and 'way above all of that.  Morality and obedience to law are things for the riff-raff.  Not for Himself.
Everyone wants a perfect, almost magical solution that will stop criminals from getting their hands on guns. But, unfortunately, background checks do not stop bad guys from getting their hands on guns. Not a single academic study by economists or criminologists has found that the Brady Act or any state background checks has reduced violent crime. 
Well, dig out your Bible and clean your guns up good.  You don't want any rust on the guns or dust on the Bibles when they come for ya'?  Do ya'?

The Timeless Legacy Of The Gun Control Lobby

H/T: The War on Guns

Yih-Chau Chang writes an excellent article exposing more of the so-called "gun control" hypocrisy we have grown accustomed to.
In one high-profile example after another, prominent gun control advocates are caught preaching about the limitations that should be imposed on the law-abiding, general public's right to own and carry guns while being called out in embarrassing public revelations where they are found to be personally practicing that which they are condemning.  While the do-as-I-say-and-not-as-I-do approach might be acceptable to the gun control lobby's minority hoplophobe base, it is completely unacceptable to the independent mind of the critical-thinking individuals that form the collective body of the American public.
Commenting on California's legislators working on a bill to give them, and not the rest of the citizens, access to concealed carry of a weapon "rights", Mr. Chang goes on:
The fact that these State politicians wish to create an exclusive class of citizenry that holds them in higher regard than the public masters they serve is both hypocritical and runs contrary to our country's Constitutional principles.
Read it all.  What's going on in your state and county?

Yes, Violence Can be the Answer

H/T: American Thinker

Sometimes you find that you're not the only one out there who feels this way.  Case in point,  Selwynn Duke has this to say.
It's hard to say what is more irritating about the "Violence is never the answer" nonsense, the stupidity or the insincerity of it.
The problem today is that we elevate experts above wise men.  And one of the signs of a decaying civilization is when those in authority prescribe unrealistic rules for the population, rules that they themselves would never, and could never, follow.
Their real message is that violence is never the answer -- for the subjects.

The reality is that, like amputation and many other unpleasant things, physical force has its place.  After all, violence is not the best way to settle differences.  Sometimes, however, it is the only way to prevent them from being settled for you.
SWMBO!, as I write, is off taking her renewal class for her Texas CHL.  Do you think she might agree with Duke?  If not, just don't even try to get between her and our grandchild!  hehe.  That's only a problem if you get past me.

Please read all, consider it and let us know what you think.  Did this article change or clarify anything for you?

Take Care of the Babies

H/T: Backwoods Home Magazine

When I was a little kid, it never occurred to my classmates and I that some crazed adult might burst into the elementary school and attempt to murder us. Back in that day, the people likely to do that were institutionalized in the state asylum for the insane.
... I was shocked at how well (unfortunately) they understood the concept of school and societal violence as a whole at that age.

These issues were NEVER a consideration when I was growing up, yet today, this is THEIR REALITY and they are keenly aware of it. (Emphasis in the original - Gene)

Guns on Campus Gets First Approval in Texas House

H/T: Newsmax

Good news from our local congress-critters.

Please remember, the "students" mentioned are already certified as being "adults" by all states.  You have to be 21 or older and a non-felon, among other things, to acquire a Texas concealed handgun license.  In other words, what's the difference between carrying on the street and on campus?  If you can't answer that easily, just consider what happened at Virginia Tech, University of Texas and any other location declared a "gun free zone".  Gun-free until some chooses to bring one into the area.

When someone misbehaves, we call the guys and gals with guns.  The Israelis know that having the tools already on scene, in the hands of volunteers, saves lives.  Why can't we learn that same lesson?

A Rabbi's Letter to Bloomberg

H/T: WorldNetDaily Commentary

Rabbi Bendory says it quite well in this letter.

“Gun control” actually (and historically) means letting government, whether benign or ruthlessly evil, disarm certain sectors of society and allow others to remain armed. It means letting the government know where every gun owner lives and the number and types of firearms that he or she owns. It means putting the authority to decide who has the right to defend him or herself with a firearm into the hands of a government bureaucrat.
The honest definition of “gun control” is actually “victim disarmament”. Because the person with the gun will always control the person without the gun. Without the personal firearm as an “equalizer”, the stronger will always control the weaker. (Please see this “Genocide Chart”)

Mr. Bloomberg, our Jewish tradition tells us that righteous self-defense is not only permissible but an obligation: "If a murderer comes for you, strike him down first." (Talmud Sanhedrin 72a)

Read the whole letter.  Consider it.  Please share it.

The 1 must-have tool for turbulent times

H/T: WorldNetDaily

During this morning's commute through the online news and blogoshere, I found this semi-precious gem from Phil Elmore.  It's only semi-precious because I think he's incorrect on some of his advice, but close enough to let you decide.  He is dead-on in most of the article.
The time to purchase a hammer is not the moment you start your work; you should be prepared ahead of time. The time to prepare for social upheaval, civil unrest, economic uncertainty and simple self-defense is not when an emergency happens. It is now or, preferably, weeks, months and years ago. As you can't go back in time, you're left with now. Don't delay. There's a piece of technology you need to have on hand, and while you'll need to get an education in the use of that tool, you can't hope to start until the tool is in your possession.  (Emphasis added - Gene)

The world is burning. The shadows cast by those fires are long and dark.

Japan's nuclear emergency prompts panic buying in Tokyo

H/T: WorldNetDaily

Prepared or not, when it hits the fan, it's too late to prepare if the panic buying has already begun.
Fears are rising that if the hoarding frenzy continues it will affect the ability to deliver emergency supplies to the disaster zone.
What is "they" say?  Forewarned is fore armed!?

God Bless Ya'll !

Tuesday, March 15, 2011



For ya'll with the ability to transmit, don't.  Please.  Stay clear of the HF emergency frequencies. Elsewhere, listen first, then transit. 

 It is using the 7 MHz SSB, 144 MHz SSB/FM and 430 MHz SSB/FM.

Many other stations are active and are using various frequencies including some battery powered and others using small generators to exchange rescue and disaster relief operation information with JA1RL and others.

While 3525, 7030, 7043 and 7075 have been mentioned as in use, it's wise to keep those and all of the Centre of Emergency (CoA) clear of normal and non-urgent traffic. There is no call for additional foreign radio amateurs.

ARES* (and survival) Lessons to be learned from Japan Earthquake


A timely reminder brought to us by the good folks at QRZ.COM.
The news from Japan each day seems to get more and more devastating. Thousands without power, water, basic needs, shelter, clothing. Here in the USA, anyone who has had contact with Emergency Management in almost any way has been told time and again, Prepare yourself and your family for survival for 72 hours without assistance from ANYONE.

While most of us can not expect to be effected by a tsunami, more commonly we are hit with ice storms, heavy snowfall, tornadoes, and everyone's favorite, hurricanes.

In some fashion, if you live long enough, you WILL experience one of the aforementioned disasters. You may not be out of power for more than a day or three, but, an average of a week or more for the more larger storms is quite possible.
Prepare NOW or suffer more than necessary later.  Our choice.  We can learn life's hard lessons from the experience of others or we can lean them the hard way.  Our choice.

What have you done to prepare, today?

God Bless Ya'll !

Media spewing nuclear hysteria

H/T: WorldNetDaily

According to our oh so trustworthy MSM, "The sky is falling!  The sky is Falling!"  Again. This time it's the Japanese reactors.  Those symbols of evil nuclear whatever.

According to Michael Savage:
"Most people in the media don't have degrees in science," he pointed out. "Moreover, most people in science don't know anything about nuclear science or nuclear engineering."

Hey, *I* don't have a degree in science but I'm not going to hyperventilate over this event.  If I lived within 50 miles of the reactor - Maybe.  Reasonable precautions according to distance and environment.  Otherwise - No.

Come on folks!  Grow up!  Be Adults!

Why The Japanese Aren't Looting

Here are two articles from American Thinker concerning the lack of reported looting in the wake of the Japanase earthquake. Frankly, I had not considered this.
"Japanese people," he told me, "are like passengers on a cruise ship. They know that they are stuck with the same people around them for the foreseeable future, so they are polite, and behave in ways that don't make enemies, and keep everything on a friendly and gracious basis."
"Americans," he said, "are like ferryboat passengers. They know that at the end of a short voyage they will get off and may never see each other again. So if they push ahead of others to get off first, there are no real consequences to face. It is every man for himself."
... most contemporary Japanese have internalized a deep respect for private property,  ...
Cultural attributes seem to be at play here. I think if you wanted to find a reason, you could sum it up with one word; respect - deep, abiding respect for one another as well as another's property. This one attribute breeds a feeling of responsibility to society so that sacrificing one's immediate gratification for the good of the nation is a desired cultural trait that manifests itself in everyday life as well as when disaster strikes.
Could it work in America? Our traditions of personal liberty would probably preclude us from developing such solidarity, although in crisis, we seem to work pretty well together. Also, Japanese society is far more united and homogeneous which makes it easier to see society in that light.
We could do a better job if each of us felt more personally responsible for our actions. But there will always be a minority that will refuse to do that, which makes lawlessness in a disaster almost inevitable in America.

You know, I suspect somewhere in Japan there is looting and I suspect it may be under-reported, rather than over-reported as it would be elsewhere,  But, we could do a much better job than we have before.

Until then, keep your powder dry!  hehe

God Bless Ya'll !

Guns in Schools? Oh, My!

H/T: Fox News

John Lott strikes the lib left fear mongers with another dose of logic.  

Fortunately, we don't need to speculate about what might happen. We actually already have a lot of evidence and experience from numerous campuses.

Seventy-one college campuses allow students with permits to carry concealed handguns, and many more let faculty carry, some for over a decade. But none -- absolutely none -- of these schools have experienced the type of harm predicted by opponents. Not a single permit holder on these campuses has been involved in a firearm accident or crime.

We also have extensive experience with permitted concealed handguns on campuses prior to the push for gun-free zones during the early 1990s. Back then, in the states that allowed concealed permitted handguns, students and professors frequently carried handguns, and there simply weren't any problems then either.
Thank God we're on Lott's side! ;>)

Our inviolable right to self-defense

H/T: WorldNetDaily

Phil Elmore over at WND has an interesting take, and fundamentally correct, take on gun control.
A law that restricts the technology of self-defense is a law that criminalizes self-defense itself.  It is a law that violates your civil rights. It is a direct affront to you as a human being.
Given these facts of existence, the only legitimate role of government in a free society is the protection of individuals' natural rights. That is why governments are instituted among human beings – or at least, that is why they should be.


Self-defense is an individual right and, as such, is inviolable ... no matter what lies Democrats tell.

After all, gun control is never about guns.  It is always about sheep control.

Lessons Learned From Cristchurch, NZ

H/T:  The Surviivalist Bog
Here's more food for thought from the Christchurch earthquake.  Are you ready?
We are now on day 7, and some major long-term problems are emerging. Despite the huge wake-up call in September, and the constant reminders since, many people were not prepared, especially in terms or stored food and water. I suspect people thought that, having survived the first earthquake, that it couldn’t possibly happen again.
I can't imagine going seven days without life's "necessities".  We've gone without electricity for up to three days a few times.  Nothing more serious.  We had a good roof over our heads and walls 'tween us and the elements.  It was just like camping out - Indoors.

Now days, I am dependent on electricity for a bit more than just comfort.  I use a machine called a CPAP to help me breath at night and another to generate supplemental oxygen.  By experience, I know I can survive without either, but I am pretty much wasted the next day from lack of sleep.  A generator is NOT an option in the foreseeable future.  Hmmmm!  Batteries?  Kinda like a UPS for the life-support equipment.

UPSs are generally considered short-term solutions to bridge electrical outages lasting no more than a few minutes or even hours. For longer duration outages, businesses look to generators or motor-generator sets to start up and provide power for the long haul.  Batteries and generators require maintenance, just like anything else.  Batteries and generators can produce dangerous gases and generators are pretty noisy beasts to be running in a residential area, such as our apartment complex.

Another, related issue.  The two devices I'm speaking of do not accept 12VDC battery power.  They require an inverter that introduces extra complexity and inefficiency to the arrangement, shortening battery life.

As I understand things, many will just die following a prolonged, wide-spread electrical outage.  No life-support equipment, no life.  If you can't get out of Dodge, you're stuck.  That's a "cheerful" thought!

I'm not there, yet.  Something to think about.  Something to do something about.

God Bless Ya'll !

The One: Derelict of Duty

H/T: WorkdNetDaily

A Vanderbilt University law professor told a House committee on Tuesday that President Barack Obama's failure to enforce federal immigration law is a "dereliction of duties" that puts Americans at risk.
“This dereliction of duties places our citizens at risk, and it damages our national sovereignty and standing in the world.”
“The failure to enforce immigration laws means that American citizens are unprotected from a massive influx of people of foreign-born persons who have entered the country without authorization and have openly stolen jobs, goods, and opportunities from law-abiding American citizens,” Swain said.

“Not only is the current presidential administration not adequately enforcing immigration laws, it has used the power of the federal government to fight states and localities (that) have made good faith efforts to assist the federal government in performing its constitutional duties to protect the citizenry against domestic and foreign threats.”
Swain said an estimated 8 million illegal aliens are holding jobs in the U.S. labor market while 14 million Americans remain unemployed. Millions more Americans have given up looking for work, she added.
If I say anything, I will resort to course and foul language, not suitable for more gentle readers of this blog.

UK: Christians Who Want to Provide Foster Care for Needy Children MUST Promote Homosexuality

H/T:  WorldNetDaily
A court ruling has found that Christians who want to provide foster care for needy children must promote homosexuality to them and that there is only a "qualified" right to exercise their Christian beliefs.
"It is important to realize that reliance upon religious belief, however conscientious the belief and however ancient and respectable the religion, can never of itself immunize the believer from the reach of the secular law. And invocation of religious belief does not necessarily provide a defense to what is otherwise a valid claim," they wrote.

There are Muslim hate groups in the United States. There’s no question about that. [The SPLC is] not going to address the fact that there are Muslim radicals, Muslim extremists, in the United States.”
There ain't no hate goin' on here!  Just a little double talk amongst us haters!

According to her official biography, she has never earned her own money, thus she is imminently qualified to spend ours.  She has been elected and re-elected seven times to her seemingly gerrymandered district.  She harangued the Houston City Council for two terms prior to that.
