    What do you think of when you hear the word soul? What exactly is it? What does it consist of? Why is it important? In this edition of Making Sense with Rob Case, we will explore the entity of the soul, study its working components, and consider how these components work in the backdrop of how we think, act, feel, and thrive in the world around us. Where does God fit in with all of this? Find out on this edition of "Making Sense with Rob Case." To access the podcast, click HERE, or click on the above link.
  • AOPA (Sort of) Admits It and General Aviation Need Help

    The Nav Log ^ | 10/1/14 | litton51
    In the October, 2014 issue of AOPA Pilot, we are struck by the pessimism the magazine takes about general aviation (GA). As the worlds largest non-airline civilian pilot and airplane organization, its attitude towards its members passion is surprising. First, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association President and CEO Mark Baker pens an article in which he admits that the price of new airplanes even the Light Sport Aircraft that were to bring flying back to the average pilot is too high for most to afford. Instead, he and AOPA are now pushing flying clubs as the answer to...

    I am a single mom with a ten year old daughter, a Christian Constitutionalist, and a prepper. I grew up very poor, both physically and emotionally. However, my grandmother gave me a tremendous spiritual foundation for which I am forever grateful. Life is about making choices choosing to put one foot in front of the next and keep going, regardless of the circumstance; choosing to prepare for whatever comes; and choosing to trust in and follow God in all ways.

Has the ever been a more partisan, more racially polarizing, more oblivious attorney general? Besides being an incompetent manager, long time attorneys with the Justice Department are aghast at Holder's tactics and decisions.

    SEPTEMBER 27, 2014 The Khorosan Group Does Not Exist It’s a fictitious name the Obama administration invented to deceive us. By Andrew C. McCarthy We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has...

    Ah, yes. The infamous “latte salute.” If you haven’t heard about it yet, Obama walked off a helicopter insouciantly clutching an environmentally-deadly Styrofoam latte cup in his right hand. When the two Marines waiting at the base of steps offered him a smart salute, Obama, who seemed to avoid looking at them, vaguely pawed his forehead with the hand holding that cup and then walked on. Here, see it for yourself: People in the military and conservatives were outraged. Liberals have been outraged at the outrage. Here are a few of the comments I’ve culled from liberals on my “real...

    The Canadian government has had to warn its citizens not to carry cash to the USA because the USA does not presume innocence but guilt when it comes to money. Over $2.5 billion has been confiscated from Canadians traveling to the USA, funding the police who grab it. If you are bringing cash to the land of the free, you will find that that saying really means they are FREE to seize all your money under the pretense you are engaged in drugs with no evidence or other charges. It costs more money in legal fees to try to get...
  • 50 Things About Millennials That Make Corporate America Uncomfortable

    Per usual, no one knows what to make of us. Our parents scorn us, then praise us. They lament over our technological dependency, then ask us to set up their iPads. They tell us were lazy, then ask us for a loan. Our generation is an anomaly. We refuse to do things their way, so they call us entitled. We refuse to sit in cubicles, so they call us spoiled. We refuse to follow their plans, so they call us stubborn. What they are slowly realizing, however, is were not lazy, stubborn or entitled. We just refuse to accept things...

    Before I get started with my question (and boy, do I need ideas!) I want to note that I'm a *secular* Conservative, and do not identify as a Christian. So any forthcoming ideas from y'all that are based strictly on Bible teachings, etc. are not going to be terribly useful to me. My problem: Our twin boys are 7 (pushing 8) and homeschooled. They probably know more about history than any other seven-year-olds in town, but I'll admit I've skipped over some areas of education so far. One of those "skipped over" areas is the concept of homosexuality. I wanted...

    ORIGINAL TITLE IN CHINESE: 关注性别失衡:艺术家创作女兵马俑(双语) When Emperor Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China, anticipated his death more than 2,000 years ago, he wanted an army of warriors to guard his mausoleum forever and protect him in the afterlife。   So he ordered the creation of some 8,000 terra-cotta soldiers, along with hundreds of terra-cotta horses and chariots, to be buried with him in his tomb. Historians speculate the soldiers were modeled after eight individuals. When the statues were discovered by workers digging a well in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, in 1974, the world was stunned by the spectacular funerary art...

    Another thing to point out is the amount of time it takes to get back on track following a disruption in supply. Take a blizzard that shuts down a distribution center for a day. The way things work is that shipments are coming in constantly, but they are timed so that basically only the items projected to be necessary are delivered. There are not warehouses full of every item imaginable that can just be run out to a store. Now a blizzard not only shuts down the warehouse and its delivery vehicles, but it shuts down the trucking that supplies...
