Ron Paul and Israel

Here are still more reasons why a Ron Paul Presidency would be good for Israel. Yet the establishment,corporate press tries to spin Ron's views about Israel as being anti-Israel.

Monster Quest

Have you all been watching this series? It's great!
The one entitled "Lions in the Backyard" has some footage of a Checotah, Oklahoma ranch where this rancher's livestock are coming up missing. Get this: they suspect it's a black Jaguar! Apparently, and I didn't know this, the southern half of the U.S. used to be part of the Jaguar's natural range but they were thought to have been killed off in the late 1800's. They now believe they are migrating up from Central and South America to reclaim their old habitat.
The Jaguar is the third largest cat. Yikes!

I watched the one about Bigfoot, too. Interesting.

The Cleveland Trip

No time to write anything lengthy tonight so I'm going to post some photos from a trip my father-in-law and I took to Cleveland, Ohio this past summer. He and my mother-in-law are originally from the Cleveland area. The church you see in some of the photos is a really old Catholic church in downtown Cleveland that his aunt still attends. The workmanship is truly amazing in the old church and was done by Irish-American immigrants in the late 1800's.

The river tug you see is on the Cuyahoga River in downtown Cleveland.

Wow! Such a deal! Only $3398 for a 10 megabyte hard drive (I'm guessing the ad is from the early eighties).

I recently bought a 320 gigabyte external hard drive for under $100. Technology marches on.

Conquering the Spirit of Debt

This is an amazing sermon given by Pastor Rod Parsley at "Breakthrough Church" in Columbus Ohio regarding not only the evils of personal dept, but also the evil of the American monetary debt-usury system and the inflation it creates. If this is your first exposure to how our Federal Reserve monetary system really operates, you may be quite shocked. This is yet another reason I would encourage you all to vote for Ron Paul because he is the only presidential candidate who is talking about putting a stop to this wicked system of debt-usury. Truly, if we don't put a stop to the Federal Reserve system and return to a constitutional-based money, a money with no debt attached to it, then the futures of our children are at stake.

If only more preachers had the courage to speak out like this man of God!

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
—Thomas Jefferson (1816)

"Government spending is always a “tax” burden on the American people and is never equally or fairly distributed. The poor and low-middle income workers always suffer the most from the deceitful tax of inflation and borrowing."
—Congressman Ron Paul

A Chip off the old block

My daughter and I have this "jump-out-and-scare-each-other" thing going on. If you can imagine the old slapstick Peter Seller's movies when Kato used to jump out and attack Peter Sellers then you'll get the picture. I started it when she was a bit younger and she loves it, even though at times it makes her heart skip a beat or two, as it does mine when she jumps out at me. She's just a chip off the old block as far as being a practical joker goes.

Last night she got me good! We were all over at my sister-in-law's house ringing in the New Year when my daughter walked into the kitchen area, which is visible from the living room where her mother, myself and my sister-in-law were all watching TV. My wife told her to come in and sit down with all of us. In her typical fashion as of late, she said "no", and then quickly disappeared back down the hallway. My wife then called out to her again to come back in and sit down with us, as did I.

No reply.

So I then reluctantly got up off the nice, comfortable sofa I was sitting on and went down the hallway expecting to see her when I entered the back bedroom, where the other TV and computer are. But there was no sign of her and she wouldn't respond when I called her name. I opened the closet door in the room half-expecting her to jump out at me then, but she wasn't in there either. I then checked the other bedroom nearby, following the same routine of opening the closet door and looking under the bed. But there was still no sign of her. By then I was getting a little bit miffed. The only room left to check was the bathroom in the hallway, which I did. I opened the bathroom door to find no light on, yet it wasn't completely dark because the light was on in the hallway. I quickly scanned the room and it was obviously empty, or so I thought. It was then that she jerked back the shower curtain and jumped out at me with a bloodcurdling scream! In an instant all I could think about was the shower scene in "Psycho"! And yes, my heart must have skipped several beats when at first I jumped back in a defensive posture expecting the worst!

After the initial shock had worn off and I realized I had been set up, I gave my daughter the "high-five" approvingly. After all, she's just a chip off the old bock. :)
