Terrorism should be defeated with love...and superior firepower...- Terry Ingle
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society." Antonio Gramsci - Marxist - teacher of Saul Alinsky

"We fear change"

Garth Algar,

Philosopher, drummer

As much as I hate to admit it, I am a creature of habit. For the past 13 or so years, my daily routine has been pretty much the same. Get up the same time every morning, shower, drink coffee, drive the same route to work, spend the day listening to people complain about broken motor homes, drive the same route back home.

Last spring everything changed. Nothing is as it was. Employed, unemployed, employed again, unemployed again, employed yet again, employed part-time. Then Sherry lost her job in October and will be employed again shortly. On top of all this, both of my incredible in laws have fought with cancer. We have lost thousands of dollars that we were putting away for retirement, the election debacle, and on and on.

As I sat in our mid-week service tonight it sort of overwhelmed me for some reason. Maybe it's because I'm not in control, or maybe I've lost confidence in the system, or maybe there has been so much to learn that I can't keep it all straight sometimes. In our service tonight, it was very, very quiet. I needed that. I just felt God as He was settling me down and reminding me that I don't need to be in control. He has it covered.
I'm in good hands...His.
