Independence Day

July 6, 2013 Leave a comment

IMG_0534July 4th.  A day for family, picnics, and fireworks.  A day of rest, celebration, and joy.  A day of remembrance?

We celebrated July 4th on a large field hosted by a local church.  A baseball field was surrounded by pristine hardwoods, with a small hill overlooking first base.  The small hill provided a superb view of fireworks set up in the middle of the baseball field.  The temperature was perfect; the swelling crowd waited eagerly for the sun to set and the fireworks show to begin.

What If?

After a series of heavy posts, one needs a smile and a break.  A post by Chris Skates made me smile, so I decided to share it with you.  The premise of the post so perfectly fits the tag line “All is not as it looks”, and is so apropos for today’s political climate where truth and fantasy are virtually indistinguishable that it begged to be shared.  Read more…

Death Control or People Control?

Counter-CutLaughter is good for the soul.  Our news would be hilarious if it weren’t so painfully true!

Incidents of social insanity have reached epidemic proportions to the point where it’s impossible to keep up with them.  They are literally consuming and destroying our society.  Some examples of our social insanity follow:

The entire country has experienced 2,174 military deaths in Afghanistan 2001 through 2012.  During the same period there were at least 6,096 murders in Chicago, the President’s home town and a city with one of the most restrictive gun control laws in the entire country. Read more…

Predictably Irrational

This is a book review and commentary on “Predictably Irrational – The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions” Dan Ariely. 
Great book.  Recommended reading.

In his fascinating book, “Predictably Irrational – The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions” Dan Ariely scientifically documents our flawed human decision-making process.  His focus is primarily a new field of research called behavioral economics.  He empirically examines individuals’ decision-making processes related to a wide range of issues with implications far beyond mere economics; some of the more provocative topics are listed below:

  • The Cost of Zero Cost
    • Why we often pay too much when we pay nothing
  • The Cost of Social Norms
    • Why we are happy to do things, but not when we are paid to do them
  • The Influence of [sexual] arousal and passion
    • Why sound decision-making is abandoned by the emotions of the moment
  • The effect of expectations
    • Why a person gets what he expects
  • The nature of our character

The Law of Unintended Consequences

February 26, 2013 Leave a comment

Counter-CutNancy Pelosi quipped as she campaigned for passage of Obamacare, “But we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy”.  Well, they passed the law and now we’re finding out what’s in it.  Here are some late developments:

Obamacare is entitled the “Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act.”  It accomplishes neither objective.  These are the effects of Obamacare’s unintended consequences:

  • Smaller paychecks due to reduced working hours
  • Fewer jobs available due to lower hiring
  • Higher medical insurance cost, hence less disposable family income
  • Increased welfare rolls due to fewer jobs and lower pay
  • Larger government deficit due to increased welfare rolls
  • Continued economic depression because of unmanageable government deficit and overspending
  • Loss of freedom due to bureaucratic government intrusion on our personal lives.

The list above represents a national death spiral.  If you’re concerned about your future and your children’s future, sign on to repeal Obamacare before it destroys you.

The Cobra

January 5, 2013 Leave a comment

ImageA cobra mesmerizes its prey before the deadly strike.
A boxer feigns a right thrust before the knockout left blow.
A politician pretends peace before declaring war.
A general deceives with a flank action before the victorious frontal assault.

In each case the victim never saw death coming.
He didn’t know his enemy and didn’t recognize the threat.
But catastrophe and death are avoidable. Read more…

Thank you!

Dedicated to our best

Thank you, veterans and active duty military for your sacrifice on our behalf.
Thank you for putting your life on the line for our comfort.
Thank you for guarding the freedoms we all hold so dear.

May God protect you in time of danger,
Give you strength in time of trial,
And always give you His peace beyond understanding.

ACORN

October 7, 2012 Leave a comment

Counter-CutYou may have heard of ACORN and its activities, but most likely not.  The mainstream news media ignores the matter.  Anita Moncrief’s personal testimony in the following two videos details her experience with such widespread corruption and lack of integrity in today’s politics that the outcome of the election could be affected.  Such an event would destroy the very foundation of our Republic:  Trustworthy, reliable, accurate election results.

The first video details Anita’s personal experience.  The second video builds on that, and proceeds to describe how our mainstream news media has also been infected.  Listen to Anita’s experience with The New York Times, which claims to print “All the News That’s Fit to Print”, but refuses to pursue allegations of political corruption supported by evidence.  Anita’s courage and honesty are praiseworthy, and provide a vivid contrast to The New York Times.

Please watch both videos before voting in November, because
All is not as it looks
