    Inspiring Vanity - You're Welcome | 12/13/2016 | Vendome
    So, I am watching events of the last week with Trump winning again and again, as well putting together a pretty amazing cabinet. Then I read some whiny artivle about BIG guns surrounding Trump Tower and my thoughts raced to the movie Battleship. The last Epic 5 minutes with music and visuals of the Old Men of America enlisting their help to the new young Men and leaders and uniting in a common mission of defeating the enemy. In this case, some undocumented aliens from outerspace. This is Winning at it's finest and Trump just continues to win and so...

    Shortened title. Full title: Faith Leaders Call To Repentance Progressive Catholics and Protestants Aiding George Soros Anti-Christian Agenda An open letter signed by more than 75 of Americas evangelical and Catholic leaders calls upon politically progressive groups that claim to be members of a traditional faith to refuse financial assistance from leftwing billionaire political activist George Soros and his political allies. The group of leaders which calls itself the American Association of Evangelicals writes in its letter: After years of earnest but less public attempts, it is now with heavy hearts, and a hope for justice and restoration,...

    A Home Depot employee is causing quite a stir online after a photo of her in her trademark orange apron and a hat that read America Was Never Great went viral. I was honestly shocked I didnt expect any of this to happen, Staten Island resident Krystal Lake, a Bernie Sanders supporter, told the Staten Island Advance. A spokeswoman from Atlanta-based Home Depot said employees arent to wear items that reflect political statements, but Lakes says she definitely will wear her hat to work again. I feel it offended a lot of people because a lot of (Donald) Trump...

  • Scientists discover hidden galaxies behind the Milky Way (explanation for "The Great Attractor?")

    UWA ^ | 2/10/16
    Hundreds of hidden nearby galaxies have been studied for the first time, shedding light on a mysterious gravitational anomaly dubbed the Great Attractor. Despite being just 250 million light years from Earth—very close in astronomical terms—the new galaxies had been hidden from view until now by our own galaxy, the Milky Way. Using CSIRO’s Parkes radio telescope equipped with an innovative receiver, an international team of scientists were able to see through the stars and dust of the Milky Way, into a previously unexplored region of space. The discovery may help to explain the Great Attractor region, which appears to...

    Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | 12/07/2015 | Michael Matza
    Local and federal authorities were investigating reports Monday that someone left a severed pig's head at a North Philadelphia mosque. An employee at the Al Aqsa Islamic Society mosque found the bloodied head when he arrived around 6 a.m. Monday. Surveillance video at the site, along Germantown Avenue, captured a red pickup truck that drove twice past the mosque just before 11 p.m. Sunday. On its second pass, someone threw an item from the passenger window, the video shows. Pigs are considered insulting to Muslims who observe halal dietary laws.

    As I watch the annual Shark Week and some of the competing Shark Fest on a rival channel Im struck that 90% of the shows involve just one species the Great White Jaws. Could this be discrimination to other sharks? Are we seeing an example of Great White Privilege? Can America in the PeeCee 21st Century tolerate the words Great and White in the same sentence? Calling Al Sharpton and Rachel Dolezal... we demand a change!

    On Memorial Day, be thankful for the world we have and remember those who helped us create and defend it. There is a place near my home in a rural county in middle Tennessee that is especially beautiful. A dirt path leads off from the main road, through a hay field, up to an old barn nestled just at the base of a small hill. Its like a scene from a painting. For some reason, every time I drive past (which is often), Im struck by a sense of gratitude for my family, for the church...

    WHEN IS (WAS) THE GREAT TRIBULATION? by Charles S. Meek And they will deliver YOU up to tribulation. . . . (Matthew 24:9) For these are the days of vengeance, to fulfill all that is written. (Luke 21:22) For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole EARTH. (Luke 21:35) The Olivet Discourse contains the greatest body of prophecy in the New Testament outside of Revelation. It is found in the parallel passages of Matthew 24/25, Mark 13, and Luke 21. The above passages in the Olivet Discourse are referring to the Great Tribulation at...
  • Will Great Lakes Ice Coverage Beat or Tie Last Year's Winter Or The Record? [VANITY]

    02/17/2015 8:42:22 PM PST · by Jack Hydrazine · 47 replies
    According to NOAA's Great Lakes Surface Environment Analysis (GLSEA) the record for total Great Lakes ice coverage was set in 1979 with 94.7% coverage. Last year's winter almost broke that record with 92.2% and is currently sitting in second place. Just a few days ago the ice coverage sat at 60%. Today that number has jumped to 76.6% based on yesterday's analysis due the recent cold the area has been receiving. Their forecast for the next 24 hours is for that coverage to jump to 82.3%. This is within 10% of second place. Some long range weather forecasts I have...

    COVINGTON, GA Trust. Fortitude. Professionalism. Compassion. These are the virtues that the Georgia State Patrol is committed to and are ethics that apparently come naturally to Trooper Asher Gray. ##Gray, who lives in south Newton County but who is stationed out of Post 9 in Marietta, was working an off-duty job at The Home Depot in Clayton County this fall when he noticed a group of children come in the store and use the restroom. ##I found that a little odd, and then one night during the week, I saw the same two boys leave the restroom and run through...

    Welcome. We have arrived in the Great Society foisted on us by liberals from FDR to LBJ, who holds title to the vision. It is marked by: a race-based underclass with 13-18% black unemployment and 109 million people overall on welfare across the country broad disrespect for the legal process and institutions such as the church lawlessness in school classrooms and on our streets 75-80% of the homes in the ghettos with children are fatherless As we slouch toward Gomorrah, there is a segment of our societyincreasingly affecting all of our culturethat has no concept of objective moral values...

    A simple plaque marks the forsaken spot where the Red Baron was buried in central Berlin but hardly anyone stops to remember the flying ace shot down in 1918. For Germans, the Great War holds so little interest. The centenary of the outbreak of World War One has caught Germany off guard, while Britain, France, the United States and others mark it with battlefield tours, television programs, exhibitions and plans for ceremonies on the day, in August. Germans aren't sure how, or even if, they should commemorate a war that cost them 13 percent of their territory, all their colonies,...

    At a time when Wall Street is absolutely swimming in wealth, New York City is experiencing an epidemic of homelessness. According to the New York Times, the last time there was this many homeless children in New York City was during the days of the Great Depression. And the number of homeless children in the United States overall recently set a new all-time record. Americans like to think of themselves as "the wealthiest nation on the planet", and yet the number of young kids that don't even have a roof over their heads at night just keeps skyrocketing. There truly...

    weekly standard ^ | 11/25/13 | JOHN MCCORMACK
    New York Times columnist Paul Krugman writes that Obamacare is a success in California, and the Golden State experience is proof that the entire program would be great if they could just get that darn website to work. Krugman's column doesn't discuss the quality or cost of the health plans offered on the California exchange at all. To make his case, Krugman cites precisely two pieces of data. First, he notes that "enrollment is surging. At this point, more than 10,000 applications are being completed per day, putting the state well on track to meet its overall targets for 2014...

    I find Remembrance Sunday sadder each year. Its partly that Im becoming sentimental I find it increasingly difficult to recite any poetry without a catch in my voice but its mainly that the fallen are now closer in age to my children than to me. When I was a small boy, I was, as small boys are, uncomplicatedly pro-war. At around eleven or twelve, I started to read the First World War poets, but I was still mainly attracted by the heroic element in their writing: their endurance in monstrous circumstances. Later, as a teenager, I began to...

    President Obama said reporters praise his economic proposals as great and tell him they are all good ideas. Obama made the remarks in a speech Wednesday in Galesburg, Ill., focused on the economy. The address didnt include any new proposals on the economy, and Republicans criticized Obama for giving an address that was more of the same. But Obama said the news media often praises his ideas. "Its interesting, in the run-up to this speech, a lot of reporters say that, well, Mr. President, these are all good ideas, but some of youve said before; some of them sound great,...
